Hola. Because “gay is now mainsteam,” I am delighted with what I’ve been seeing on corporate network television these days. It doesn’t matter which canal/channel I turn to — even though I’m usually on the español language networks — I see nothing but GLBTQ couples and singles on every programme. All corporate network programming is now GLBTQ-based. Isn’t that wonderful?! Wow, this is a good time! Before gay became “mainstream,” I saw nothing but “straight”-based/heteronormative programming no matter which canal I turned to. I would see nothing but “straight” couples sucking face, holding hands, arms around each other, the typical tall him and short her making out — or is that his little daughter he’s leaning way down to make out with?…how can one tell? — I would see “straight” couples arguing and having yet another dysfunction and then moments later about to have sex or that’s the impression they like to give before the camera moves away. Thank goodness for that camera moving away. I don’t think I could stand to watch that spectacle because “straight” couples look like they’re paired off wrong to begin with! He should be with un muchacho and she should be with una muchacha. But when I see dos/two Queer boys making out they look like they’re paired off correctly and the same goes for dos lesbianas. Yes, there’s been this 180-degree drastic change in corporate network programming and it’s all because “gay is now mainstream,” (we’re told), which someone declared — I don’t know who it was — after the US Supreme Court’s recent ruling on same-gender marriage. I’m pleased to say I haven’t seen a “straight” couple sucking face or being in my face with their sexuality in weeks. This is a good time!
(Now back to reality)
I was reading an article on the WSWS and it brought to mind what I’d previously written. “Gay is now mainstream,” is what some wishful-thinking, delusional GLBTQs have been spewing in San Francisco following the US Supreme Court’s recent ruling legalising same-gender marriage in all 50 states of The Cesspool/the US. Apparently these people who spew that “gay is now mainstream” nonsense don’t watch any television at all to observe the constant stream of heteromorative-saturated programming and commercials on corporate networks where el hombre/the man is always making out with una mujer/a woman, or holding hands with una mujer, or has his arm around her or is kissing una mujer. Then I walk out my front door these days in The Castro of San Francisco — the former Gay Mecca — and I see the same type of thing I see on television. Apparently these “gay is now mainstream” idiots also don’t read any heteronormative men’s health magazines which automatically assume that all of their readers are “straight” because the magazine goes on about, “How to Please Her Sexually.” Ugh.
Then some conservative, wishful-thinking basura in San Francisco also say, “gays can now live anywhere.” Yeah, we can in the closet idiot as has always been the case, but even that’s questionable depending upon where one lives. And consider the continued violence directed at TGLBQs with transgender killings on the rise (at least 17 transgender las mujeres/women have been killed in 2015. Or this: A study has found that people are more supportive of gay rights than they are of same-sex public displays of affection. *roll eyes* (If that isn’t some fucked up thinking!) The reason the class-warfare conservatives claim that “gays can now live anywhere” is because the conservatives have never liked gay meccas to begin with. They’ve called them “ghettos.” HA! How many “ghettos” have you seen with One-Million Dollar homes in it and status-symbol/expensive vehicles in it? As I’ve written before, the conservatives (including GLBTQ conservatives) are all for “straights” taking over former gay areas and making them “straight,” (is there some self-hate going on there?) such as in San Francisco’s Castro barrio, West Hollywood, the Village in Manhattan and other places.
One of these busy-bodied conservative homeowners’ groups (neighbourhood associations) in San Francisco recently wrote that The Castro is “evolving.” Someone might ask: What the fuck does that mean? They just couldn’t bring themselves to type that The Castro is becoming “straight” and losing its GLBTQ identify. So instead these basura had to use the code language, “evolving”. They also wrote that these new residents are very young and do not “identify” as GLBTQ. They’re talking about the techie basura — but they couldn’t bring themselves to type that either — who have raped the city and who are mostly young, white and “straight” and who clearly don’t believe in any form of birth control whatsoever considering the many fleets of condominium-sized baby strollers one sees around here clogging up the sidewalks with eardrum-piercing, high-decibel screaming children.
These articles (links below) from the WSWS are representative of just how “gay is now mainstream:”
I wonder if these wishful-thinking GLBTQ idiots are paying any attention to this stuff? Or are they still living in their delusional “gay is now mainstream” Utopian Dreamland?
I guess you heard about that piece of so-called “christian” fundamentalist basura — I can’t stand fundamentalist “christians” — in Kentucky who went to jail because she refused to acknowledge the ruling from the US Supreme Court making same-gender marriage legal in all 50 states of The Cesspool/the US/los Estados Unidos. Her bigoted ass sat in jail for 5 days until she agreed to not interfere with her deputies marrying GLBTQ couples. I had thought that la muchacha might rot in jail but la basura is out now, unfortunately. You can read about it those two links above. I just wanted to bring this to people’s attention.
