there were gay tv characters on "Will & Grace"!

WHHHHHUUUUUUUTTTTTT?????????


I know, right!?!?!?!

This gay thing has gotten totally out of hand.

I heard a rumor recently that George Takai, TV's Mr. Sulu, was gay.

Next ridiculous thing you'll probably hear is that Ellen Degenerous, a great female commedianne, is gay.

OMG!
I think I may have just 'swooned'...
Whatever that is.

Little known fact, Felix Gaeta on BSG (the 2003-2005 one) was gay and was in a relationship with Lt Hoshi. They never really pushed the storyline on screen as it would have taken away from the overall narrative with just a stupid little side story. But it is written in the series bible and confirmed by the "Face of the Enemy" webisodes...

Just a quick other gay person on TV note, now back to your regularly scheduled Smithers, and I'll get back to counting my coffee tins.

I really don't get why we need to have this "gay awareness" when it comes to enjoying a tv show, whether it be animated or whatever. Yeah, I get that they're going after numbers and maybe even a certain audience, but with the LGBT audience being extremely small (an educated guess based on the % of the available population who are and who may actually be watching that show), why would they bother? It's just a TV show. It's meant for enjoyment. Not indoctrination or a teaching tool or even a tool for awareness. It's a damn bloody TV show meant to make us watch and laugh. It's not like I'm tuning in to PBS or something.

I just don't get all of this stuff that they apparently HAVE to put in every damned tv show and every damned movie. It's like someone demanded that the LGBT flood gates be let opened and the government mandated that it be so or else!

That was why I started this thread. I think folks are forgetting that Mr. Smithers doesn't do anything until He is drawn and animated. It isn't like He knocks off at 5:00 p.m. and then His 'private life' starts His life begins at the end of a pen!

Perhaps it is because We need to SEX every thing???

This is how much I know about the Simpsons ...

I thought the thread headline meant they had made the evil rich dude gay, and I was going to come in here and finally applaud someone for actually being brave and edgy, but it's actually just Bern's poor downtrodden assistant (got them mixed up), and we've always known that.

Carry on.

It's not that we need to sex everything, but it's that every single special interest group feels they are entitled to representation in every major production. I mean really, how dare The Simpsons not have an openly gay character? That just wouldn't make it progressive and inclusive.

we shouldn't care, except as an accurate reflection of positive changing awareness of the population. George Takei was one of the voices in that episode. I love George Takei; he is 100% himself all the time without any regrets.

When I first saw this, in fact I'm still convinced that he came out as "teh Ghey" in the late 90's.

If anything, everyone knew, it just wasnt outright mentioned.

Whelp, time marches on! A cartoon character who gives a fudge?

FWIW I could tell by the ascot.

Add a dark thick mustache, that's a pro 'film' star.

Gay characters on an animated comedy are nothing new, South Park had Tom Cruise and John Travolta.


What about Mr.Garrisson, Big Gay Al, Mr. Slave, Saddam Hussein and the Devil.

SP broke the mold long before. That is their goal, to break the mold and thank [insert diety] for it.

Those are all make believe. The other two are real.

Nope. Just Tommy and Johnny.

Right, so the OP is about a fictional gay cartoon character and you are giving examples of real supposedly gay people making an appearance in SP, when it would be more obvious to mention the ones I did, since they are also fictional gay cartoon characters.
