Why don't television people look like "real" people?

Why don't TV (fill in the blank) look like real (fill in the blank)?

I'll go with, "Jesus Christ, I'm eating. Do you have to show that now?"

I will admit that I don't understand the butch lesbian thing. Gay men tend to like masculine looking men, but they still look like men. Why don't some lesbians want feminine women? Seriously - honest question. Why would a woman who is attracted to other women be attracted to a butch female since they look like men?
 
2014-04-17 11:26:28 PM
I see butch lesbians on TV all the time.

They're on Chopped.  For some reason.
 
2014-04-17 11:27:15 PM
Because a chick who looks like Pete Rose kissing a chick who looks like a young Woody Allen just doesn't get ratings.

(known hot lesbians, but they are a rare breed indeed)

It will all fix itself in time.   I predict there will be a time where the current trend will flip.
 
2014-04-17 11:30:02 PM
Because they put lesbians on TV to appeal to straight men.

Who don't people shiat and pee in the toilet on tv?

I want a more realistic depiction to family life. And show scenes of people masturbating to porn on the computer because that happens A LOT (my friends tell me).

Because they don't have money to buy them, duh!

AgentPothead:


Honestly, that's pretty close. I mean, it looks to me like the burger from the ad is just a really well assembled and lit version of the other.
 
2014-04-17 11:32:10 PM
This is timed well right after that Parenthood season finale.
 
2014-04-17 11:32:13 PM
Oh I don't know, the same reason why they featured Heath Ledger and Jake Gylanhal in Brokeback Mountain instead of a couple of dirty, nasty, half the jaw rotted off because of a three tin a day tabakky habit farmhands.

Naya Rivera plays a lesbian in Glee?

I've never seen the show, but if their ads just featured a black screen and the words "Watch Glee because Naya Rivera plays a lesbian." I would have slavishly watched every episode.
 
2014-04-17 11:33:27 PM
Just shut up and scissor already.
 
2014-04-17 11:33:46 PM
For the same reason people on television don't look like real people.
Duh.

What, suddenly lipstick lesbians aren't real?  I'll have to tell quite a few friends that they're not actual lesbians...

And they don't just look like men, they look like the fattest, sloppiest men. I find it a little insulting actually...what, am I not manly enough to emulate because I don't look like John Goodman?

Why do you like making grown men cry?
 
2014-04-17 11:36:51 PM
Because TV is fake.  All of it.

jso2897: Why can't a cow have kittens?


There is a woman at the psych ward my girl is currently doing clinicals at that has a pet cat she calls cow kitty. Not because it's fat, but because a cow birthed it. And it talks to her. Sad place, that.

That's pretty much it.

Also subby what does a "real" lesbian look like? Hell what do "real" straight people look like?

/Stupid stereotypes.

Never under estimate humanity's weird sexual quirks. I'd rather fark John Goodman than most butch lesbians, I find nothing attractive about the ones that I've met, but that's ok. Someone will fark
 them.

Hot lesbians exist in the wild and I've studied their habits.
 
2014-04-17 11:42:46 PM
Butch ones don't get invited to the casting couch. Get more butch director and producers first

It's so rare that this answer is appropriate, I'm going to use it:

Duh.

Thread needs more TV lesbians. For research purposes. I'll start.

Femme here, so I can field this one.

A butch female does NOT look like a man to femmes.

A butch looks like a masculine woman to a femme-- as in, she still has breasts, all the awesome lady parts, etc.

A great comparison is also one that usually also pops up when non-lezzies talk about lezzie sex: dildos/strap-ons.  A strap-on does NOT represent a penis to us.  It represents a strap-on that happens to be attached to a hot butch (at least if I'm farking her) and as a bonus I get to dictate the size and shape.

So, to recap:

A masculine woman is NOT a man.

A masculine woman does NOT look like a man to a femme or another butch.

So it's your right to tell other people what a woman should look like?

I get the flannel but lumberjacks aren't constantly wearing cargo shorts are they?
 
2014-04-17 11:48:39 PM
I don't need to read the article to answer that one.  Its quite simple: most real lesbians are ugly and TV viewers don't generally like to watch ugly folks.

Not always true, otherwise there would be no one looking for twinks or queens.

most lesbians i've known don't meet people's stereotyped expectation

except for that one who only wore wife beaters.
