LOS ANGELES - The number of lesbian, gay and transgender characters on U.S. television shows have reached record highs, and campaign group GLAAD said on Thursday that their stories were more important than ever given moves in the United States to roll back LGBT acceptance. In it annual report on diversity on the small screen, GLAAD found 329 regular and recurring LGBTQ characters across all broadcast, cable and streaming TV platforms, including the first asexual and non-binary characters. GLAAD president Sarah Kate Ellis said TV was a critical place for the portrayal of LGBTQ characters and their lives. “At a

Comments:
Heavy sigh. At the rate they are going we will never again see a white ´normal´ male or female cast on any show. In the link below they don´t show as high a number, but yet they complain there still isn´t enough diversity. Good. Grief. I´m sick to death of diversity!! Those reruns of Frazier, Johnny Carson, etc. look better each and every day. Other than This is Us, there are no other shows I watched on network TV. That show has also been ruined.

Contd. This Is Us which was pretty good last season. One of the first new episodes featured an Obama/Biden sticker on a refrigerator. They just can´t help themselves. They are turning Kevin into a drug addict. Who needs that? Recently Mandy Moore reported that she praised her mom and two brothers who came out as gay. Amazing. I quit watching the show, so did my sister who loved it. Leftists destroy everything.

We cut the cable this week. One reason was the “in your face” LGBT queer stuff that has become so pervasive on TV. We will just watch less TV, read and listen to music...from the 50s and 60s. I wrote lots of letters to the networks that have gone unanswered and unheeded. Adios to the networks, football and all of the rest of pop culture.

I refuse to watch them. Was enjoying Supergirl. No more. I thought the Orville would be good but they´ve screwed that up quick. Didn´t even bother watching the new Star Trek. Fortunately, there are plenty of old shows that do not have characters with such problems, shows you don´t have to worry about children watching, shows that don´t disgust you.

Two thoughts.
I read an article that said some birth control pills that were in fashion a generation ago, seemed to result in more homosexuals born in the second generation, i.e the grandchildren of the pill takers. Although, statistics still show that only a very tiny percentage of Americans are homosexual (i.e. far less than you would think given the prevalence of homosexual characters depicted in television shows). Of course, these statistics are suppressed or hidden by the media.

Second, the broadcasters are so concerned about the declining percentage of Americans who watch the major television channels and the shows these producers knock themselves out trying to produce and promote each year, as well as the increasing number of people who are cutting the cable entirely. Yet these television executives live in such an insulated Leftist narrative bubble, they never realize what is causing so many people to lose interest in television. The shows they put on may be reflective of society in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City and other large urban areas, but they are not reflective of most people´s communities.

Judging by the number of LGBT characters on TV and cable, half the United States is gay rather than just the 1.5-2% it actually is.

It seems like many of the ads I see on TV are for male enhancement products so I guess “most” men who watch must be in the market. Sad commentary on our culture. Does anybody know of any current TV shows about what used to be called “normal” people and families? I can’t convince myself to watch and find out.

FTA: group GLAAD said on Thursday that their stories were more important than ever given moves in the United States to roll back LGBT acceptance.

They have the cart before the horse. They became obnoxious before people started turning them off.

I have much less tolerance for the "LGBT community" every time I am forced to to watch a show with the gratuitous "gay married couple" or the "brave transgender" it forced into a story where it is not only unnecessary, but detracts from the storyline.

Three decades ago I was on the frontlines, I loved my gay uncle and felt he "deserved" to be treated equally. He often said, no one cares what happens behind my married sister´s bedroom door, no one cares what happens behind my married brother´s bedroom door, why should anyone care what happens behind my bedroom door?"

But it is never behind the bedroom door anymore...it is shoved down our throats, whether we agree or not. It is practised out in the open, on the streets where my innocent grandchildren walk, and they deserve a childhood without explicit sex--gay or straight--every where you turn.

The number of LGBTQ characters may be up but I would bet my last dollar that the viewer statistics are down. I hear conversations all the time by people I know who have ditched their cable and are happier (and richer) for it. I watch one show other than the news and as soon as they introduce this nonsense mine is gone too.

One evening way back in the late 90’s I picked up the remote and clicked through about 80 of the 200 or so channels we had on our cable. It was all garbage. So I quit watching television completely. I suggested to hubby that we get rid of the appliance altogether, but he loves to watch college sports so it stayed.

Sometime around 2007 I started watching NCIS because it was largely positive about the military and made no bones about the evils of Islamic terrorism. Then it got politically correct, added a homosexual character and finally started defending terrorists in Gitmo and illegal aliens.

Now I’m back to no television at all. I read, play with my dogs, do needlework, sudoku, etc. Much healthier.

Since the 1970´s, white men have had the need to judge any content based on the race, religion or sex of the speaker socially excised. To now watch the rest of society do so in spades is so very entertaining. I keep throwing out lines like, "I only vote for people who share the same genitalia" and "I only watch characters who look like me" in social settings and watch ensuing, tortured reaction. Had a friend post on facebook last month how excited whe was to take her daughters to the new Star Trek because the Captain was female. Responded that it never occurred to me to pick my son´s entertainment based on people that look like him and the reaction was so tortured as to be hysterical. It´s time to call the Left on this nonsense; call them out as the racist/sexist/heterophobes that they are.

I stopped watching one of the very few TV shows I watch, NCIS:New Orleans. after they pushed out one nice female star and replaced her with a pushy lesbian with a NY accent. As her insistence on pushing her lesbianism intruded more and more into the plots, that was it. Haven´t watched most of last season, any of this. Done.

A Prunedale, Calif., man says vandals toppled 100 beehives and killed hundreds of thousands of bees after dousing them with diesel fuel. Mike Hickenbottom told KSBW-TV that the Italian and Russian honeybees on his property were attacked Saturday. Hickenbottom says the bees are stored on his property during the winter, and beekeeper Alfonzo Perez leases the hives to pollinate almond trees on farms across the state. Hickenbottom says neighbors have complained about the bees in the past, but the bees are not aggressive. An estimated 200,000 bees died. The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office is investigating, and authorities said no arrests had been made. Prunedale

The White House slammed Republican Sen.

He’s looking for some attention,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She also accused him of being a “mouthpiece” for the repressive regime in Cuba on a recent trip there, and said it was ironic that he would attack Mr. Trump for not tolerating dissent. She said Mr. Flake’s accusations were “utterly ridiculous.”

Shortly after the New Year opened, I noted that President Donald Trump had begun mounting a #CounterResistance to California’s political war against his administration.

President Trump denies having used a vulgar term last Thursday to describe dysfunctional Third World countries. Yet there’s no denying that the leftist media, believing he did, responded by repeatedly disgorging the term in a childish orgy of decadence. Of course, the media no doubt think they’re damaging Trump — but they’re actually damaging society. Let’s be clear: Leftists certainly object to the substance of Trump’s comments, that we shouldn’t continually absorb poor, unskilled, often functionally illiterate and unassimilable people from Third World nations. But they also object to his alleged style, labeling as obscene the use of s***hole (toilet) to

IEA chief Fatih Birol said one of the “[f]our large-scale shifts in the global energy system set the scene for the coming decades” is “the U.S. becoming the undisputed global oil and gas leader.” “The remarkable ability of producers to unlock new resources cost-effectively pushes the combined United States oil and gas output in 2040 to a level 50% higher than any other country has ever managed,” Birol said in his Senate testimony.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher. "I don´t see any

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century. "Chanel liberated women (after World War I) by dressing them in male fabrics like tweed,"

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Tuesday snapped at Senate Democrats who hounded her repeatedly over whether President Trump said some countries were "s**thole countries" in a meeting last week.Nielsen was testifying at the Senate Judiciary Committee, where several Democrats made a point of asking her about Trump´s reported comment. She said several times that she never heard Trump say those words, but when Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., raised it for the fourth time, Nielsen said enough was enough. "Sir, respectfully, I have answered this," she said. "I´ve been very patient with this line of questioning. I´m here to tell you

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump’s combative attitude toward the press and called on Congress to protect journalists worldwide. “Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy,” McCain said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post. McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad. McCain cited foreign leaders who have
