The way I look at it....as long as the remote is in my hand....I'm the moral queen of my own castle. I could care less what everyone else watches.

As I do not believe that there is anything morally wrong with being gay, and do not consider it a disease or something to be 'cured' , I have no problem with a significant segment of the population being represented on television.
I think it is good that young people no longer have to feel shame for being who they are. So thumbs up from me.

SAD, that's what it is. Where will it stop?

Some things just don't need to be glorified on TV. If that's what a person decides to do in their adult life, then fine, but forcing it upon the general public, and some impressionable, confused kid out there, NO!

They've already proven that, at least in some cases, it is something that can be cured b'c in some, it's a chemical imbalance. If some want to take that as an insult, that's ludicrous. It's no more insulting than saying any other chemical imbalance of the body can be cured.

Why? I don't feel a child's sexuality should even be a source of entertainment or they should be a focal point b'c they're suspected of being gay. I don't want people looking at my child and thinking of sex in any form.
