(The Atlantic Wire)   One thing anti-gay marriage folks agree on is that America only supports gay marriage because we were brainwashed by a TV show. Now they can't agree on WHICH show, exactly, but they're darn sure ONE of them did it   (theatlanticwire.com) divider line 273

So, as I understand it, watching people shoot each other in the head in a video game has absolutely no effect on the viewer whatsoever, but watching two married gay people on television will make you want to suck a dick?

 "At a time when the public mood is overwhelmingly against gay marriage, any show that promotes gay marriage is deliberately bucking the public mood," [Brent Bozo] said.


And any political party that opposes it right now is deliberately bucking the public mood, right Brent?

Right?

Seriously though, it's gotta be some insidious conspiracy that is convincing people to support marriage equality... can't just be because people think it's the right thing to do.

Well, assuming I accept your argument that my attitude toward gay marriage is because I've been exposed to it via television (and I don't accept it because you're a dumbass) - at least I'm not basing my attitude on a poor understanding of Biblical scripture.

Hoff runs around in tight pants with his chest hair sticking out like he's partying at Studio 54.  And don't even get me started on his automobile "companion" who sounds pretty damn effeminate for a man.  Why didn't the producers make KITT sound manly instead of like some fussy, British queen?

The gays infiltration of Hollywood goes back much further.  For example, in "Commando", Arnold Schwarzeneggar starts off with not even having a wife.  When a woman does show interest in the form of Rae Dong Chong, he leaves her in his underwear to make a rendezvous with a leather daddy in a sweaty dungeon.

Just look at this guy:

Flattop, push broom mustache, chain mail vest, and leather pants.  The scene ends with him penetrated by a pipe causing an explosion of steam that erupts from his body.

Nice try Hollywood, but you're busted.  Totally.gay.

It's generally credited as being the first show to feature a gay character.

Of course it was one of Meathead's friends

None of this would be possible if Bugs Bunny had not eased this generations adults into acceptance of the LBGT lifestyle.

You don't constantly call a grown man "little buddy" unless there's some shenanigans  going on. And Mary Ann and Ginger were totally lezzing out.

pretty sure the gayification of TV is a result of a cultural shift and not a driver although there can be some positive feedback.

Plus, Rob and Laura slept in separate beds. So, obviously, Rob was plowing Buddy in the ass while Mel used his bald head to shine Rob's sack.

I mean, come on... there shouldn't have even been time to have a plot, the show should have just been all about how Rob could barely make a joke because he was too busy plowing this

Yes.  FARK is applying to be accepted into the Global Consortium of Librul Media Elites.  They've met all the requirements except for Phase Four: Recruit 1000 children to the homosexual agenda by destroying a traditional Christian institution.
