MRC Remains Offended By Mere Existence of Gay TV Characters
Topic: Media Research Center

For years, the Media Research Center has been offended that gays -- real ones or fictional characters -- appear on their TV. Recent outrage has been focused on the fictional variety.

Callista Ring is scowling about a gay character on "Star Trek: Discovery":

Sunday’s episode of CBS's liberal propaganda-filled Star Trek: Discovery gave the first real glimpse of its much-anticipated "groundbreaking gay romance,” as described by Huffington Post.

Tonight’s episode, “Choose Your Pain” ends with an intimate conversation between gay partners Lt. Stamets (Anthony Rapp) and Science Officer Dr. Culber (Wilson Cruz) brushing their teeth before bed. Watch the exchange the liberal writers are patting themselves on the back for here:

As if the show were a cute sitcom rather than space age science fiction, the two utter sweet nothings to each other, like “One tends to worry when they’re doomed to love a brilliant but reckless maniac,” and “I also knew you’d leave me if I let anything else endanger that creature.”

That so-called "liberal propaganda," by the way, is having non-white characters as leads and a Klingon leader character the MRC has decided to interpret as an attack on Donald Trump.

When the Disney Channel show "Andi Mack" decided to add a gay character, Tim Graham was in full anti-gay rant mode:

Parents have realized that the Disney Channel brand isn’t about traditional family programming…it’s about Hollywood using every channel to promote “inclusion and respect for humanity,” which is code for forcing LGBT acceptance. Shred the Bible, sin is in. Your “tweens” – and younger -- need to hear the gospel of the gay movement.

[...]

The least surprising element of this story is the involvement of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), which almost always works hand-in-glove with any Hollywood production to promote homosexuality.

[...]

Entertainment journalists don’t find any space in their story for any critics of pushing this homosexual revolution in children’s programming, or critics who might suggest that GLAAD-approved plotting won’t allow any “inclusion” of a sincere religious objection to their politically correct party line.

Why would journalists what to insert ignorant, manufactured outrage that adds nothing?

And Lindsey Kornick complained that the ABC show "Scandal" "cramed [sic] several PC elements into one plot by introducing the lesbian Muslim university student striving to be the next Gloria Steinem. Can we get anymore to the left at this point?"

Kornick makes sure to get in some gratuitious Muslim-bashing as well, claiming that "we should probably be encouraging countries in the Middle East to do things like, let’s say, not stone victims of rape or throw acid at girls wanting to get an education. Sadly, that may not be politically correct enough for a show with the gay Muslim girl."
