They Canceled "Sense 8"; Parents Outraged Over LGBT Yearbook Page; Body Cam Footage From Inside Pulse Nightclub Massacre

They Canceled Sense 8

They canceled the TV show Sense 8 and the interwebz are going berserk. Of course I loved that show and I've posted about it here on the blog several times, but that's not the main reason why I'm a little frustrated over the cancellation. I can't help wondering if it has something to do with the gay content...or rather, the way the gay content was presented to the public. Shows like this never seem to last, where shows that promote all the stereotypes seem to thrive. It's interesting.  

Netflix unceremoniously canceled “Sense8” on Thursday, sending shockwaves through the Twitter community. In other words, fans were pissed.

Show producers took the high road about the bad news, posting the following on the social media platform...

Here's the rest.  It's actually one of the first shows where I've seen that kind of gay content, instead of the mash up nightmare they do on TV shows like Modern Family and Will and Grace. But I'm not totally surprised either. This is what happens to TV shows that portray gay people a different way...think Looking...and don't follow the stereotypes, because they just don't want to see it.

Go Hollywood, again.

Parents Outraged Over LGBT Yearbook Page

It always amazes me when I hear straight people say they don't know why we have to talk about these things in schools, as if the only thing about being LGBT is related to sexuality. They have no idea there even is something called "Gay Culture." They think anything related to LGBT is adult content, and that couldn't be farther from the truth.

The truth is most LGBT people know who they are at very young ages. I knew I was gay around 5 years old. Of course I spent the next 15 years trying to ignore that, but it would have made things a lot easier if I'd seen things like this is my high school year book.

Ealier this month, several parents were furious and disgusted to discover a yearbook page dedicated to Atasocita High School’s LGBTQ students. 

In order to be more inclusive, yearbook editors profiled four queer youngsters, who shared their experiences coming out over a rainbow-hued background.

Now, irate parents have been writing into Atascocita.com to threaten and insult the yearbook’s Editor-in-Chief, recent graduate Kyle Armour. 

It's interesting when straight people talk about having gay things "crammed" down their throats. As if gay people don't know what it's like to live their entire lives having heteronormative things crammed down their throats every single day of their lives.
