There's no denying the fact that lgbt representation in popular media is lacking. Although this can be attributed to several different complex societal factors, one troubling and reoccurring symptom of this homophobia is TV and movie studios preventing the inclusion of an LGB character, despite the fact that the creators/scriptwriters specifically envision the characters as LGB. Here are 5 examples of this depressing bigotry.

Note: This only includes LGB because I don't know of studios blocking any characters from being transgender. Not saying that this hasn't happened before, just that I don't...

This artigo is slightly similar to the one I wrote a few months ago, link. But I couldn't help reiterating. Sorry if it's a waste of time.

My whole life I have been fluctuating between gay and straight. It was only in my senior ano that I felt confident enough to come out to my close friends in high school. I even had my first girlfriend. And being in such a warm, welcoming environment, I was able to openly discuss my feelings with others who shared them.

I found out that ano that not only was I bisexual, but so were three of my friends who were previously calling themselves "straight," just...

So surfing through lovely YouTube, i was watching a much beloved episode of Ellen when i happened to look down at the comments.
The video was when Justin Bieber Graduated (Was bored OK?) and someone happened to comment "JB sucks, he is so Gay" and another posted "Yea, I hate him he is Gay with those earrings in his ear"
I got so irritated, Earrings are not just for girls! And just because a boy wears them, does not mean he is gay. And even if the kid WAS gay, doesnt mean he sucks just because he is Gay. I wanted to just find whoever wrote that and bash them with a smart stick. And then there...

Well, I know I have been coming out as a lesbian here for several months now. Honestly, I didn't even consider bisexuality. I was still figuring it out. I'm not taking it back or anything. Okay, let me explain.

I "realized" I was a lesbian last January. I was totally into girls. But I was wondering - I'd had a couple crushes on guys. A few weeks atrás I realized I'd made a mistake - I was bi.

I go through a spectrum, I realize. Like right now, I'm like 70% into girls, 30% into guys. But it shifts around a lot. That's where I though I was lesbian and such.

Just to let everyone know, I did make a mistake. Good luck to you all!
Dear Everyone I love,
Since the dia I was born, since the dia I strarted school, You have been dear to me. Whether you are my loving parents, or my loving but still slightly annoying little sister. Whether you where the first one to say "Hello" to me when I started first grade, or the one to give me that extra decorated "Be my valentine" card that turned into my first crush in the 5th grade. To my 7th grade música teacher, an old family friend...and first Lesbian crush. One who had understood me and still loves me like Bfftwdcwasa (Best friends forever till we die cause we are so awesome) To...

I posted this artigo on the aleatório spot too so I said why not post it here, after all this is the right place. Hope you like it. Thanks for reading. ;)

1)"Why, do you find me irresistible?"

2)"No, I just dress better than you"

3)"You're a double gay. No returnsies!"

4)"I amor the segundo grade insults, *insert name here*. Honestly, isn't it strange how "gay" has come to replace "stupid"? And so what if I was gay? Insulting my sexual orientation is pointless.

NOW...if a girl says you're gay, and you actually are, I find the best burn is: "At least I can get a boyfriend."

5)Look them in the face with...

The Westboro Baptist Church is a group of hatemongerers led por abusive husband and father fred figglehorn Phelps. They are probably most well known for their catchphrase “God hates fags” that they use as a website and that they pull out to picket soldiers’ funerals. They have a variety of phrases that use the start “God hates” and then apply it to a subject that’s suffered recently as a means to promote their hatred such as with “God hates America”, “God hates India”, and “God hates Jews” to name a few. They are horrible and oh so easy to make fun of. Therefore, I give you God...

Anti-LGBTs always have a fonte for their hatred towards LGBTs.Here are the main reasons:

1.)They read the Bible and see that it says "Homosexuality is a sin".

2.)They might have been molested,raped or/& sexually abused por a LGBT.

3.)They are in the closet LGBTs.

4.)They are afraid of LGBTs because they think they are unnatural,diesesed &/or unnatural.

5.)They were raised to hate LGBTs.

As you see, theses are easy to argrue over.Here the agruements:
1.)A bunch of things in the Bible say things are sins but they don't follow em so it proves that they are

I've been bisexual for quite some time now... since I was 10 years old to be exact. Generally, one would assume I was just going through a phase due to puberty and hormones, but almost 5 years have passed, and I still feel the same.
One thing I dislike about being bisexual is the possibility of being compared to the other bisexual chicks at my school...
Now, don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against other bisexuals, it's just that the bi-chicks at my school are rather... irritating. These girls are the type of people who are constantly in your face about their bisexuality, and bringing...

iTunes has various collections of songs for sale that fit certain genres. One of these genres is gay pride. They have “Gay Pride Month”, “Gay Pride: Boys” and its sequel, and “Gay Pride: Girls” and its sequel. These all have different descriptions, with “Gay Pride Month” recommending various singers and promising a rocking Pride Month, “Gay Pride: Boys” talking about progress and suggesting a couple songs while suggesting items in the playlist would be good for a “pride party (or gay wedding!)”, “Gay Pride: Boys 2” highlighting various songs and promising “sultry...

Homophobia is SO Gay. So many people use “Gay” as an insult. LGBT’s are different, and most strait people can’t understand that. Ignoramus’ fear what they can’t explain. So, some people shun and fear: Lesbian’s Gay’s Bisexuals, Transgender’s, and Transvestite’s because their different, right? Like some people are scared of sounds outside of their windows because they don’t know what it is: they can’t explain it. Its unnatural right? Wrong. The Bible goes against Gays, so a lot of people must think their doing the right thing when they alienate them. The Bible is...well,...

Okay, this is seriously starting to get on my nerves.

People will say that being gay is wrong, or that it's not they who hate gays, but God who hates gays. I think this is pretty outrageous.

I myself am not Christian, but let me tell you, I do not know of a single other religion who has anything against gay people (besides Naziism, but that is a political party, not a religion, and not too many people are a fã of theirs anymore). But I did learn about the Christian religion in my Global History class at school (historically, not religiously. We did all different religions). Guess what? It is...

My mother always told me I was the weird and wild child. But as I grew up I began to belive it with the way I live and the way I see life. I see life as a box of cxrayons with some many different as cores to choose from to make a pretty picture called life.

While por no means perfect, the treatment of homosexuality in modern media is improving. Gay storylines were once introduced purely for shock value, but now their appearance is far mais commonplace and is often portrayed as legitimate drama (or comedy) alongside heterosexual narratives. However, while treatment of simple homosexuality has been increasingly progressive, bisexuality remains a subject without decent representation in many shows. This includes shows that would otherwise have a decent portrayal of homosexuality, but have somehow missed the barco when it comes to the concept of being...

(Just so you know, when I say Americans, I mean the US, not North America.)

I used to be proud to be an American. I believed we were such a great country. But, as time went on, that pride began to fade. The reasons to be proud diminished one por one. Recently, my eyes were completely opened and I realize just how far behind my country truly is.

All it took was one video. A commercial. It was for the Israel Gay Youth Group. I did research. I realized. South Africa is allowing gay marriage, as well as several other countries. Israel is very pro-LGBT rights. Most of their commercials show this sort...

I am the boy who never finished high school because I got called a fag everyday.

I am the girl who was kicked out of her início because I confided in my mother I was a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because no one will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who held her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled night.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in a hospital because they would not let my partner of 27 years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away...

Chapter 1

I was sleeping alone at night in one of the rooms of my grandfather's huge house. It was raining and there was thunder and lighting. I tossed and turned in the covers. it was a little difficult to sleep that night, even with my sex book to keep me company, and boy was it cold! I wandered the room searching for the remote for the A/C unit, nowhere. Eventually I found myself dozing under the covers, it was probably very late.

Suddenly, I was woken up por my parents. "Louis!" they said "Louis" it's time to get up to go to school. There was melancholy in the tone of my mother's voice, it...

He walked out into school and could feel the eyes of hatred piercing his soul. He wanted to run and hide; but he held his ground and kept walking. He had to get to class; he had to survive the day. And then he would be free.

It was the dia of the grade twelve graduation. He had opened up about being gay the dia before when his boyfriend had proposed to him; but his so-called "friends" all treated the couple like shit afterwards. So now he walked in the halls alone; his fiance in the hospital; suffering from the painful blows from his peers.

He stepped into the classroom and his teacher pulled...

I am composição literária this letter to the New York Senate. Could you help me editar it or give any advice? Do you think I was too rude about it? Thank you.

Here is the letter:


To the New York Senate,

I am completely and utterly ashamed that you have voted down the same-sex-marriage bill on December 2nd of 2009. It is not only unjust, it is not only morally wrong, and it is not only discrimination against a minority just because they are slightly different. It goes against several laws and rights of the United States of America.

By denying same-sex-marriage, you are not only denying these couples a título of...
