Homosexuality on Prime Time TV - Page 3

Anya was with Xander for a while, but he left her at the altar sooo... yeah.

This show came out while I was in junior high so I didn't really know about it till a few years ago and I am looooving it!

Ok, I'm sad to report that after the pilot episode of White Collar, they switched out the lesbian (she was the parachuter from Lost, she's been in a few things), but I can't be toooo sad b/c they replaced her with the female lead from The Middleman, whom I love. But they are doing the classic hot girl/guy thing now. Anyway! Wasn't that a great episode of Glee?! And... the nephew is NOT gay on Ugly Betty, apparently. I was wondering when they would nail that down one way or the other. But UB is a great show normally about homosexuality and all forms of being marginalized. They definitely do the stereotypes, but EVERYONE is taken to the extreme on that show, so it works.

I love Sal on Mad Men, I hope he's not gone for good. I thought he was a great example of someone living in another time, struggling with society that thinks he's wrong or bad. But we know the hippie revolution is coming to the '60's, it has already started. I'd love to see him divorce his wife, come out and still be a part of the advertising world. I mean, hell, they're in New York City for crying out loud. The old guard is just going to have to learn to live with teh gayz.

I really love how commonplace homosexuality has become on tv, and I really feel like it has a lot to do with my generation's attitude on homosexuality, that it's no big deal. About six years ago when I was fourteen, I went through my rebellious stage where I was overwhelmingly conservative, and it was thankfully short-lived thanks to Degrassi! Even though you can say that they over-do it with the issues teens have (homosexuality, pregnancy, STDs, teasing, bullying, etc) they only have a small cast to work with, and I think they portray the dilemmas very well. And come on...who doesn't love Marco?

My favorite show of all time is Queer as Folk. Freshman year, four of my friends and I would watch it on DVD a few nights a week so we could work through most of the series. It was incredibly raunchy, and surprisingly, it bothered me less than raunchy hetero couple scenes. So now, the "controversial" same sex kissing scenes on mainstream tv hardly phase me. Oh, and Ellen is amazing! Did anyone see that the Americans they polled voted Ellen and Portia the couple they'd trust most to watch their kids, even ahead of Brad and Angie?
