    Saw the episode of survivor tonight and have to say that was pathetic. Made him seem like a complete idiot and put a terrible image on the gay community. Making people think we are all spoiled brats that don't have to work a day in our lives and exile people we do not relate with or like at all. Jeez how sad can u get. I was hoping for him to be blindsided!!! Damn he wasn't.

    Ugh. I love Survivor and I can't stand Colton. You can't even make the case that he's edited in a way that makes him look bad--his eye rolling, whining, and sense of entitlement can't be dismissed.

    Unfortunately, nobody watches the usual villans of realty television and say, "well, that's how typical white men and women react," but when the participants fit into certain archetypes that they might have been casted for, then it's easy for people who are prejudiced to reach a conclusion that those traits must apply to everyone of that race/gender/orientation/whatever.

    One of my favorite players in Survivor was Todd, the winner of China. He was one of the best strategic players in the history of the game and he also happened to be gay and not all that masculine. There have been a lot of other gay players who were judged for their game play and not their sexual orientation. Unfortunately, Colton probably won't be one of them.

    Tonight's episode was just over the top. I thought, "who does this guy think he is?" My first boyfriend had an extremely privileged upbringing, was just as effeminate as Colton, and could be just as condescending, but unlike Colton, he was smart enough to turn it off and keep it to himself when he needed to. If you put him in Colton's place, everyone would have liked him, but he would have manipulated the entire game and his solo interviews where he got to say what was really on his mind would have been the funniest in years.

    I am disappointed with this whole season so far! Colton is just a terrible person whether he be gay, straight or whatever! The girls constant whining and the guys stupidity just might make me skip this season. I have to believe that this will be one of the lowest rated seasons.

    Honestly...I think its not fair for people to even ask this question.

    He is one person, and he should not be what the gay community stands for..

    i think if anyone can take a gay person and use it to reflect everyone. I think its ignorance.

    No one person or even group of people can reflect or speak for one group. Everyone is different.

    If i ever got on a show I would reflect me. James

    not the LGBT, the black community or anyone else. Im not here to be a role model for someone else. I live for me. Its good if ppl relate but dont be like me, im alrdy here.

    I think that is the problem with society.
    Everyone is putting people into a role and saying they should be this or that.

    I think if people just were "themselves" instead of who they feel they should be, eating disorders and standards of beauty and teen suicide would be lower.

    I just don't think its fair to say someone isnt a good role model. He shouldnt have to be a role model...I dont like him at all, but


    I just think people should be themselves. Not be a certain way because of what others think

    If he sucks, than I'll just not watch and only talk about and watch gay personalities that I do support and encourage. Why talk about and encourage interest in bullshit role models?

    i'm bad with names so i usually just referred to him as perez hilton. he just reminded me of the same bitchiness and even resembled his looks a bit. the way he treated that guy in tribal council a few weeks ago and then the way he and that other girl treated the asian chick on last night's episode was just disgusting. glad he's gone.
