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 Harvard Law School professor and Newsweek magazine were recently mocked after uncritically suggesting a scenario in which Hillary Clinton could still become the president. Lawrence Lessig, the Roy L. Furman professor of law and leadership at Harvard Law School, outlined a scenario in which the former senator could take the reins of power in the event of a series of impeachments of the Trump administration. If President Trump resigns or gets impeached, Vice President Mike Pence resigns or is impeached and House Speaker Paul Ryan – who would legally become the heir to the top job – appoints Clinton

There are 3.6M ´DREAMers´ — a number

The political debate over the fate of "DREAMers" — undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children — has overlooked just how many there are in the country today: about 3.6 million. That number of people whose lives risk being uprooted is not widely known, in large part because so much public attention has been focused recently on 800,000 mostly young DREAMers accepted into the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This smaller group of DREAMers is in the spotlight because President Trump terminated DACA in September, saying it was an illegal overreach of executive authority that can only come

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.

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen.

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.

Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world.

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,"

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month. In an interview with Dutch radio, Ploumen said she views the honor as a

Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP? Obama being Obama, with his solar-system-sized ego intact, has been promising to do

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact

In an exclusive interview with Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, FOX Business was told that Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, will likely receive the backing of mega-donors, not just within Utah, but across the country as he gets ready to announce his candidacy. “He’s given me every indication that he’s running. He’ll have a lot of support from the wealthy people that he knows from when he ran for president. The people on the same list of donors that he had before for 2012, including those from Utah, is a very good place for him to raise money,” Herbert, a

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
