I hope not. How will I explain THAT to my neices?
 
2002-06-05 05:58:16 AM  
Why don't they just say "Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy"?
 
2002-06-05 05:58:31 AM  
Right, Ms. Lafferty. Instead, let's have the kids that are gay grow up feeling like they are societal rejects, or worse. sheesh!

Oh, how I loathe the "Traditional Values Coalition1"

In the immortal words of Buffy from Valley Girl , "BARF!"

You see, when a sponge and a squid love each other very very much....
 
2002-06-05 06:00:20 AM  
NEWSMAX is worse than YellowTimes because at least YT tries to make their stories plausible.

This is the type of shiat I expect in Jack T. Chick comics or that dumbass "Valley Citizen" magazine I get every month with such insightful articles as:

"Why there is no seperation of Church and State."
"Why our founding fathers promoted Christianity."
"The Clintons are monsters, let me tell you why!"

'Why Not Invite Dr. Laura?'

Or for that case Strom Thurmond, I'm sure he would love to come. Hey how about they guy sitting at the back of class who calls everyone "faq"

Its just wierd to see such openly hostile attitude toward homosexuals - I wish they could explain their phobias. They mention several times that it's innapropriate and talk about how they know that GLAAD's agenda is to have positive media portrayal of gays - but I wish they would offer their insight as to why any of those things are neccesarily bad.

TV in general is a whole lot gayer than I remember it...Will & Grace? Andy Dick? That one really gay guy with the beard that is becoming a Fark icon?

Mark my words, the USA will have negative population growth 10 years from now just like Russia because we'll be too busy eating tacos and hotdogs to procreate, if you catch my drift.

They shouldn't be targeting 8 - 13 year old kids with any sexuality, hetero or homo. Have you seen "Cow and Chicken"?
 
2002-06-05 06:10:44 AM  
NoGods - That seems very Donna Reed.

Where's a picture of Ku Klux Klam when you need one?
 
2002-06-05 06:12:52 AM  
Hmmm, maybe a bit. A typical knee-jerk reaction is similar; that any sexuality is innapropriate for children...but on the other hand, kids are learning to masturbate and become aware of themselves and each other about that age. Why shouldn't they be made to be part of the discussion about sexuality - they're certianly curious.
 
2002-06-05 06:15:14 AM  
I dont get how the whole Right wing Against Gays works i think the world would be a much better place if the real right wing [fundies not apply]worked together with the gay community alot more could be acomplished.
 
2002-06-05 06:19:58 AM  
I think if we started discriminating against fundies like they used to against gays the world would be a better place. Which is more danger to our kids, gays who adopt or priests who molest?
 
sec
2002-06-05 06:22:40 AM  
Gays who adopt priests who molest.
 
sec
2002-06-05 06:23:48 AM  
Or possibly priests who adopt gays who molest priests.

What was the question?
 
2002-06-05 06:24:07 AM  
I don't get the actual need for "discrimination" laws against gays and what not. Aren't there already laws that cover that area rather well? I mean, why do you need a gay version of the law?

I mean if you go up to someone and scream "you faggot" and then punch them..that's technically assault and battery...so um.. you don't really need some new law there..just my opinion...I don't care either way really...it doesn't effect me, and I don't watch TV, it's really gay:P

It's all part of KKKlinton's master plan to infect all children with laser guided gay plague fired from your TV.

Just kit your kids out with a stylish tinfoil hat and they will be protected from not only this, but from NSA mind control rays as well.

'Foil' the lizardmen today!
 
2002-06-05 06:47:23 AM  
I donīt care, give me back Zim for gods sake!
 
2002-06-05 06:48:09 AM  
NoGods has the best statement. When you're 18 you want to see cartoons of dogs fighting cats, not dogs loving cats or dogs loving dogs

and no that's not promoting violence
 
2002-06-05 07:10:54 AM  
BigAl was studdering.... Thats all
 
2002-06-05 07:14:17 AM  
Weird.

Personally I don't think Nick should be asking these questions to children anyways, it being a childrens network and sexuality should not be forced at the viewers at all, hetero or homo.

As for puttin dr.laura on the show.. sure as long as she catches a bullet in the face.
 
2002-06-05 07:23:31 AM  
Spongebob? Gay? He's a farking sponge. NewsMax needs to get a life.

I wonder what's next.... I know! Cat Dog: The Two for One Homo Blue Mouse Molestor! The blue mouse, of course, is Winston.
 
2002-06-05 07:28:00 AM  
Well. It does my gay heart good to read this thread. Glad to be sharing the planet with you guys.
 
2002-06-05 07:31:46 AM  
I don't know......I'd have to see a show with this "gay agenda" to form an opinion.

Morons take Newsmax stories as gospel, and the "Traditional Values Coalition" sound like religious brownshirts.
 
2002-06-05 07:37:33 AM  
Old news...in fact, if you go to Snopes you can get details on the story.
 
2002-06-05 07:41:43 AM  
Dr. Laura has proven that no staion wants to carry her show seeing how she's an empty-headed cooze-rag who knows nothing about psychology and prefers to bash people for these so-called "family values".

I don't see how putting a hypocritical harpy who posed for big-bush nudie photos while she was cheating on her husband.

Therefore, I think a filthy whore like Dr. Laura has no place on a kids show.
 
2002-06-05 07:44:00 AM  
Thank you, Nick Dark, BigAl, and Darkmayo for the laughs. Laughter and coffee is a good combo first thing in the morning.

MisterSym, really the answer to your questions are quite obvious. The anti-gay, uber right-wing, bible thumping drones fear that if homosexuality is viewed as a normal and equally valid lifestyle, and is socially accepted on a large scale, then there is a chance that their sons and daughters are going to be corrupted by it, and thus, may grow up embracing an evil and morally wrong way of life in the eyes of their religion and/or think it is acceptable.

There is nothing more nefarious to certain persuasions of Christian than a fag.

Nevermind how others in society may wish to teach tolerance or educate teens and young adults that being gay is not "bad" for some very good reasons. For the most part, the right wing-nuts do not want their children to think independantly on any issue that is an affront to their moral values, period.

As far as Nick doing a show, I think they need to make the target audience a little older. I have no problem with them doing the show...just not for eight year olds.

Furthermore, parents should be monitoring what their children are watching anyway. If something like this is an affront to them, it is up to the parent to make sure the kids do not watch it.
 
2002-06-05 07:47:30 AM  
There is probably more truth to this than most will care to admit. My two kids (13 & 11) will point out gay slants in the shows they watch and I will have missed it. Everything from cartoons to the teen shows.

They can deny this all they want. I'm not going to get of on another rant, but I posted some viable information regarding this and how it related to the time I worked at CBS studios years ago. This was in a thread a couple of weeks back. It does happen. In fact, writers are aways having to re-write and conform their scripts for various 'minority' groups (which moniker the gays have grabbed hold of for more credibility).

Piss and moan all you want. It isn't changing. TV's will be hitting the curb soon I predict. People will have had enough crap force-fed down their collective throats and just unplug it.
 
2002-06-05 07:47:38 AM  
I suspect that no one ever will.
 
2002-06-05 07:49:50 AM  
Yeah, like that filthy, sinning Batman. Ohhhh, I see the way he looks at Robin's legs.
 
2002-06-05 07:51:52 AM  
Hey, as long as middle class America accepts the gay lifestyle, fundies are going to have to deal with it.

Seeing how poor, poor whitey is sooooooo oppressed, oh how my heart bleeds for the white, Christian male.

Bigpeeler:

Not necessarily. We live in a country where society is a battered wife to the media. Part of it biatches about it, but as a whole accepts it and continues watching tv because the media tells them that they're loved.
 
2002-06-05 07:55:25 AM  
Why is there a need to discuss homosexuality with children? If you are supposedly "born gay" everything will fall into place on it's own.

Perhaps so they don't become ignorant hate mongering savages. But that's just a guess.
 
2002-06-05 07:59:52 AM  
Katchaa Personally I have a hard time distinguishing between homosexuality and beastiality.

Simple: Informed consent.

Nice troll though.

Just how the hell do you "promote" homosexuality anyway ? Isn't that like trying to "promote" two left feet ?
 
2002-06-05 08:02:15 AM  
Katchaa: "I honestly do not understand those people who believe that it's good education to encourage kids to discuss homosexuality. The only people who do this are those with an agenda. "

Hey, is that a Troll in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?
 
2002-06-05 08:02:18 AM  
ArmchairDissident
You could always try the catholic priest method of promoting it - get them while they're young...


Note to self: Hope hell isn't too hot when I get there.

homosexuality = sex with human of same sex
bestiality = sex with animal

Hope that cleared that up for you...
 
2002-06-05 08:05:53 AM  
(which moniker the gays have grabbed hold of for more credibility)
Sorry, sweetie, but that moniker is a reality. I have faced discrimination, at times quite brutal, by the majority most of my life. This is not some parlor game we're playing here.
 
2002-06-05 08:05:57 AM  
Katchaa
I sometimes find it hard to tell them apart when I'm drunk... my cat's been walking funny for weeks.
 
2002-06-05 08:08:30 AM  
I don't know whats worse...People with kids who should have never bred or people w/o kids who think these topics are new and need a solution from "them" because nobody could possibly do the right thing, or has in the past.

"You're going to find that many of the truths we believe in depend greatly on a certain point of view." Obi-wan

Lucas bull or just reasonable logic?
Got kids....watch out for them.
No kids....no vote.
 
2002-06-05 08:12:36 AM  
Why do people associate saying that homosexuality is wrong with hate?


Personally, I get a little tired of seeing the sexual innuendos worked into entertainment targeted at children. A good example of a sqeaky-clean movie I really appreciated lately was Monsters, Inc. It managed to be a wonderfully entertaining and endearing movie without stooping to lower common denominators.
 
2002-06-05 08:13:51 AM  
Tnw:
homosexuality = sex with human of same sex
bestiality = sex with animal


Thanks for explaining the difference, Tnw. Now I understand completely. Count me out.
 
2002-06-05 08:17:13 AM  
I admit it.

I'm in favor of homosexual rights, and teaching children that all kinds of love is a good thing. And it's all part of my agenda.

I have an agenda to raise my two kids to be decent, loving people. I don't want them to fear or hate. I want them to be as loving as they possibly can be, and I don't particularly care if it's with a man or a woman a long as they are truly happy.

That's my agenda. I've lived in fear that you'd find it out, but it's in the open now.
 
2002-06-05 08:19:39 AM  
I think I've got the formula down-pat:

Parents = influence is questionable at best. Maybe Dad's screwing the kid. Maybe Mom's poisoning them like in 6th Sense. Maybe both of them set the kid on fire every night. Teaching their kids to hate blacks & gays, is the least of their crimes.

Ellerbee and O'Donnell = incorruptible, pure as the driven snow...

What a load.
 
2002-06-05 08:25:34 AM  


You've watched me, now you're all gay. manaical laughter
 
2002-06-05 08:26:13 AM  
Bigoledork,

The little monster was gay.
 
2002-06-05 08:27:27 AM  
SELL THOSE NICKLEODEON SHARES !!!!!

Promoting homosexulaity = less children = less viewers = less revenue.

What they should be doing is promoting teenage pregnancy. Thats just good old fashioned common sense.
 
2002-06-05 08:28:52 AM  
Why is driven snow so pure? More pure than regular snow, I assume. I've been wondering for awhile now. And when do you separate the a in awhile? I've been wondering that for a while now, too.
