wrestlervic saidLeandro, how many times does this have to be said by me and others. GAY STEREOTYPES DOMINATE VIRTUALLY ALL GAY MEDIA.
Every time someone says "Hey, show more of a mix" you come off thinking we want to kick out all fem shows. That's not what is being said. So when we see another "Rupaul" or "50 Faggots" it becomes more and more apparent that there is a desire to "gay wash" everything. It's sort of the reverse of what you were saying about "white wash."
Do you honestly think I care about what Rupaul or the "50 faggots" do with their lives or even to my image as a gay person?
Wow, OK, I missed this reply, and I think this says it all. This is where we differ a lot. I and MANY gay men DO care how we are represented in the media, especially when we are misrepresented as a stereotype of only one type. Just as another poster had said earlier, if every TV show and movie depiction of a black man were to be a stereotype, that wouldn't sit well for that community either.
I am really taken aback that you really don't care, according to your statement above, how absolutely one-sided the gay entertainment is. How they don't represent probably about 50-80% of the guys on this site. I guess as long as they represent you, and entertain you, that's OK. Right.
Good luck with that. Good god. I'm sure you're going to reply that you don't look to the gay media to define you, which is absolutely your right, but it is HOW THE REST OF THE WORLD DEFINES US. The media is really the biggest most powerful voice we have that is seen by all.
I think we deserve programming that accurately represents All of us.
