Read my post down thread. Tell me how my lifestyle is different than yours You CAN'T because it isn't.

As a private citizen, you are free to avoid their products or even organize a boycott against them. And as private companies, they are free to produce the products they believe to be most effective for their profits.

Freedom is supposed to be a wonderful thing. It's a real shame to see Americans disgusted by it. If you can learn how to live and let live, you'll be happier people.

If I were you, I would be more concerned about how many commercials they watch, so they are pestering you for $100 blue jeans at the age of 10, and the amount of violence they see, passed off as family entertainment.

Threads like this show who the real snowflakes are. Every time somebody in the entertainment industry comes out as gay or a fictional character is revealed as gay, it's the same song and dance of butt hurt from conservatives.

Where do you get this stuff? Where did I say that I wanted to censor it, or that they didn't have the right to produce it. They can air what they want, and I can refuse to watch. I don't think anyone here is calling for censorship, do you? I certainly am not.

They have a right to air, and I also have a right to comment about it. No?

SJWs believe everything needs to have some SJW message behind it.

I wonder if that's just what happens as we age. I'm a moderate...not hard core liberal or conservative. I prefer the older shows. But I rarely watch TV or movies anymore.

My decorated, Annapolis educated, high ranking naval officer dad came out of the closet when he retired after35 years of service in 1978. Long story, he'd always known he was gay but wouldn't accept it until he no longer had a choice. He was a respected Ph.D. Engineer. You would have never known if you met him. He fought in Korea and Vietnam.

So the gay lifestyle is something I've been exposed to for 40 years. Big deal, old story. I wish we were at a place where people didn't hate gay people and banish them to hell and where some gay people didn't feel the need to shove it in everyone's face.

I loved my dad and his friends. They just carried on with their lives, with their gay/straight friends. Just like I do. I'm not gay.

I wish it wasn't necessary for people to advertise their sexual orientation. I wish our society was past that. I'm so done with the hetero and LBGT stuff. I,wish people could just live their lives without the hatred and discrimination.

Well between the Viagra, Cialis, and KY commercials, and the questions they bring.........

I almost would welcome, "Hey dad, why didn't you marry another man?"
