Thank you < 5% for shoving your bizarre lifestyles down our throats.

At least I'm not surprised it's Disney. I used to work at that trash heap.
You sure seem interested in the topic, maybe you should just not watch it, it does not seem to be working out for you.

Guess what? Lesbian mothers exist; they have their own children, they adopt, and they are foster parents as well. Climb out of the 1950s and get over it.

That wasn't my quote.

I don't have a daughter but I do have a son. I used to like to watch HGTV and he first asked about gay people after hearing two women talk about dating on one of the shows. He'd actually met some of them before but it wasn't like they were making out in front of him, so he just thought of them as friends.

Hey I am not in charge of how the System here quotes people, seems to be an issue at the moment.

I've actually seen studies that kids of gay parents are better students.

There are more hoops to jump through to have a kid if you're gay, especially for gay men. They must really want kids to go through it.

That said, I have noticed that there has been a trend with TV shows to showcase homosexuality. More so with lesbians than gays and there is a general societal trend that accepts lesbianism on a far larger scale than with gay males. Among heterosexual males and females lesbian relationships are nowhere near as stigmatized as gay males. Even with lesbian women man:man relationships are tolerated of course, accepted, but it's a serious turn off for them. I find that rather...odd...but it's a fact and comes from the source.
Yeah. I get slapped with my own hypocrisy when I get squicked about the thought of two guys being intimate. Hand holding and "I love yous" don't bother me. But physical intimacy in general squicks me out. I'm not sure why, it just does. I do love hugs though.

Quote:
Two women together doesn't bother most people in general, regardless of sexual preferences (bbut I'm excluding gay males here as I have no insight there) The majority of straight men will confess in private that they are quite turned on sexually by two women together and straight women will often enough confess similar thoughts. I find it to be confusing and I have been unable to reason it out as to why this is. Even with myself as lesbians do not have near the recoil in effect on me as gay men. I can't say why, don't have any scientific reason. It just is what it is.
Because you're straight, silly. You're not supposed to be attracted to guys. Being a lesbian, I'm not either lol. I do love men though. A lot. For more reasons than I can possibly list. Men rawk. Most do anyway.

I have only known one wo.an who I was close to in my life that didn't tell me they were ok with lesbians but not so with gay males. There is a huge industry that caters to male desire for lesbian porn, and a whole separate genre for women as well. And these...products...are used more by heterosexual people, men and women, than by actual professed lesbians. Hey, I'm open to commentary on this, but this is coming from firsthand, in depth personal experience.
I'm more prudish than SNLs Church Lady when it comes to sex in general, so I'm probably the wrong person to comment, but I don't like or have any use for porn lol.

I have had problems with lesbians twice in my life. These were militant "butch" types with serious attitude issues. One incident was in the workplace decades ago. It mainly involved just trolling for reaction with lewd conversation intended to be heard by me, silly buffonery in physical actions with each other aimed at shock factor. Yea, they just figured they could get a rise out of the young cowboy type fresh off the ranch and on my first job away from home. I only ever made one comment in reaction and it had the virtue of ending the silliness.
If you're talking about inappropriate PDA, that is so tacky.

Quote:
The next issue is more recent. About three years ago. And it was a bit more serious. Same situation. Militants butch type in cammo pants, muscle shirt that showed of fat, jello arms with sleeve tats, weird piercings and such. She followed my lady and I around the store (we were grocery shopping) . Openly leering at my. lady, wagging her tounge just being disgusting and provacative. My lady didnt notice her. She had suffered a head injury in a bad accident and she had tunnel vision. She could only focus on one thing at a time and her cognitive and comprehension abilities were very compromised. She had also suffered a trauma from an assault that execerbated things. I was VERY protective of her and for good reason. I just kept myself between my lady and the offender, and she just kept looking straight ahead and the thing walked off. I figured trouble over, my lady was none the wiser and no harm done. I walked off ahead of her and down the aisle a little bit looking for something specific and I heard my. lady yelp.

I spun around and this...thing..had come back from somewhere and had grabbed my lady's butt. Grab is a kind term, it was an invasive and disgusting grope, and here this creature stood daring me to do something about it. Myady was seriously confused and in fight or flight. Scrambling to get behind the cart. Next thing I know the thing was on the deck from a vicious clothesline. Store staff came running, my lady was crying (PTSD can do that and nothing could have been a worse trigger) and I just forgot everything but her.

This attempt at a statement ended very badly for this...person. And to my eternal gratitude and ultimate respect my sister and her partner came flying down to the store and if it weren't for them I would have had a far worse time bringing my lady back. They so got a good look at the offender before the Capitol Police hauled it off. They were every bit as livid as I was as we're a coup of their friends who came to their house where we went to get my lady some good space and these women were wonderful. They all were very fond of my lady and knew the story behind why she was so more than upset. There was a LOT of love and genuine caring around us and nothing was needed more.
I'm sorry. I don't know what else to say.

So, I will state with firm conviction that I can't get on board with thethe prejudicial and uniformed commentary about depravity and such aimed at the lesbian community in general. Yes , this serious incident, that earned the perpetrator a sexual assault conviction in addition to some serious backlash from the local lesbian community, was caused by alesbian " but this person and types like it are prosona non grata with the mainstream lesbian community and we're it not for the efforts and genuine honest caring for my lady and I by four women, who happen to be lesbians my precious little lady (Rest In Peace my Love) would have been a lot more difficult to bring back to us.
Actually, I do know what to say. Hate is an incredibly strong word, and I don't use it unless I actually feel it. I feel nothing but utter contempt for that bull**** that attacked your wife. No matter the personal cost to me, I would have unleashed hell on her for what she did.

Quote:
I refuse to damn an entire group of people who have done me and mine no wrong and in point of fact has shown nothing but ultimate kindness because Hollywood, Disney whoever is making a pissed poor attempt at showcasing a lifestyle they actually have no clue about. My sister and her friends and my one friend have all told me they wish these TV dramatizations, which are very inaccurate and are strictly politically motivated would just go away. They tell me that they only serve to whip up negative sentiment (example OP) and draw their community and lives unwanted attention.
I agree. The ridiculous stereotypes shown in the films and shows you are talking about **** me off.

Quote:
I sympathize as certain aspects of my own lifestyle draw uneeded, unwanted and negative attention because of limp attempts by TV producers. Between them and the fricking porn industry all that gets focus is the sexual aspects (which are pretty seriously skewed) of the lesbian community and the fact that they are people, caring, loving and giving human beings that would walk on coals for the people they care about is just ignored. I suppose that it's the sexual aspects that are giving lesbianism its wider acceptance within mainstream society as we have become a strictly sexually focused cuture. Everything is about sex. I'm rather glad that I have personally moved beyond, well beyond, viewing everything through a sexual prism. (Sigh) I could go on and on but I've rattled enough.
I'd walk through coals any day of the week and twice on Sunday for someone like you. Thank you for 'getting it', thank you for your empathy and compassion. Thank you for having common sense lol.

Hey, who don't love and need hugs. . I miss my lady's hugs so much. I ha e no use for porn either, and the flat tacky and nasty lesbian porn is just so disgusting. Some of the scenerios they come up with, I mean ...seriously? Regular porn is bad enough, but Gawwwwd! Had a buddy once who was a collecter. He was always popping in porn flicks like we were going to watch a real movie. And there's his wife sitting there with her husband and his buddy with some plot less waste of recording playing. There wasn't enough booze or narcotics on Earth to make that comfortable. Sorry buddy, ummm, forgot to feed my dog, gotta go.

Yes that group of bulls was seriously tacky. Wagging their tounge at each other, grabs and gropes. Like I said, going for the shock factor on the young country boy. They had no clue the knarly things I'd seen and experienced growing up on a ranch. So it was shrug factore. The comment I made that ended their efforts came when they got into how worthless men were, how we just have nothing going on, and other such bilge. So , since I'd had enough, I just tipped up my bat, looked them all square in the eye a d said Well hell, at least I AM a man. I don't have to pretend." Oh my! THAT got an ubba ubba ubba reaction, and they left me be after that.

When I heard my lady yelp (her yelp was a distress cry and I can't accurately describe it other than it would put me into immediate action) and I turned and saw what was going on I acted. This...thing..was actually started ding there challenging me. I could have hurt it far worse than I did but my aim was to remove it from the equation and get to my lady. It never saw it coming . Was expecting some sort of clumsy Haymaker or something I guess. The clothesline caught by total surprise and upend it's feet over its head. And next I knew I was holding my lady and store staff were milling about and then there were cops. I don't even remember relating what happened. My lady couldn't talk, but as over the edge as she was and this ..thing..trying to catch a breath and the store staff told them what they needed to know.

And my sister and her partner were there before the cops got the offender in cuffs. The store isn't far from their house
I sorta remember the cops needing me to write a statement and my sister and her partner got my lady out of there, I scribbled something and then jumped in the truck and got back to my love. She couldn't have been in better hands and then the other two friends ds got there not long after me. No team of crisis could selors could have been better. Seriously, the love was so thick could have just bathed in it, and that's what turned the trick. My sister and her partner got busy with my lady and their friends, who I know we'll as they do me, got me calmed down and out of battle mode. They were all just wonderful.

And yea, I "get it". I've been blessed to see things from the inside. Friends (real ones) and family. My lady and I were a couple in crisis that day. No "snowflake" "safe space " BS. Myady had been previously traumatized by a very violent attempted sexual assault. Rape. Attacked from blindside just like this idiot bull did. She was forced to defend herself, which she successfully did. Having to do that was as much or more traumatic for her than the assault itself. She was a nurse. She healed people. Being forced to inflict the injury she did was totally against her nature, whether the varmint had it coming or not.

Thank you for getting it. Thank you for being the kind of person who is like my friends and family. The phsycological effect that this stupid stunt initiated was more than serious. That someone would initiate an assault like that with a total stranger, what the person thought they were going to accomplish. ..did they actually think this was just some harmless prank? Actually think my lady would respond favorably? The offender plead out to aggravated sexual assault. We didn't have to go to court thank God. And their name and personal information became available to the lesbian community, and I have no clue what that may have rested in. Other than I know these wo.en take care of their own. In this case a heterosexual couple.

And when my lady passed after a long and bloody battle, theswo.en tokk care of the gasping, bleeding, grief stricken me. All my closest and most trusted friends are women. Women "rawk". They stood by my lady and I through the very worst a couple can go through. They're working tirelessly still to patch what's left of me back together. They ain't giving up on this Humpty Dumpty. Women like you.

I'd go into battle with you and those like you over most men I know. And have been into battle with. I'm with you about these projections of silly stereotypes and it really frosts me when lesbians get stereotyped as all being these militant Cbarloit /Brahma crosses Iike that bovine hybrid that assaulted my lady. Those types do NOT speak for or represent the lesbian community in any way. Anyway Geekigurl it seems we reach. Whoda thunk. A beat up old cowpoke from a backwater an "uneightened and uneducated" rural background and you. And a few others like you. Keep this up a d stereotypes won't have any option but to self destruct.

Yes, I know gays exist, and I have no problem with that, nor do I have a problem with my kids knowing gays, or the existence of gays. What I do have a problem is with how the media, entertainment, tv, movies, etc portrays the number of LGBT in their shows. They make it seem like there are so many, that the numbers are pervasive, and we must change our lives somehow to accommodate them. In reality their numbers are so small that the entire LGBT thing is insignificant outside of the media, and their bubble.
