Louis Sheldon, of the Traditional Values Coalition, complains that TV shows invariably portray gays as “nice” and sees in this a conspiracy “to desensitize Americans to the genuine risks of the homosexual agenda”.
…homosexuals are invariably portrayed as funny, sensitive and caring individuals. At the same time, critics of homosexuality are portrayed as bigoted and ignorant homophobes who have to learn to accept homosexuality as a valid lifestyle choice. Yet behind the scenes, how many people realize that organizations such as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation actually have veto power over many of these scripts and can actually force directors and producers to rewrite dialogue that casts an unflattering light on homosexuals?
There’s no one nicer than gays
That’s what the TV conveys
It’s easy to see
Controls what the network portrays.
If everyone thinks gays are nice
No one will think it’s a vice:
Being queer is just great
It’s no fun being straight
Add gays to your life for some spice.
But gays for a long time have planned
Gay marriage to make law of the land
There’s only one way
To stop this today
From TV they ought to be banned.
