Colleen Raezler: Turn Off TV Shows With Gays

July 29, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Colleen Raezler, an outspoken staff member for the Conservative watchdog group, the Culture and Media Institute, is on a mission against positive portrayals of gay men and women in the media and is especially aghast at any mention of sex on her television that does not promote traditional values and morality.

Recently, Raezler suggested that homosexual characters on TV shows exist only to indoctrinate viewers to accept their dangerous lifestyle as normal.

Raezler was responding to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation’s third annual Network Responsibility Index, which rates cable channels and networks on their inclusion of content reflecting the lives of the LGBT community.

HBO came in first, with 10 of the channel’s 14 prime-time programs offering LGBT characters or content. Showtime came in second, with ABC leading the way with network stations.

“Television shows that weave our stories into the fabric of the series present richer, more diverse representations,” said Rashad Robinson, GLAAD’s senior director of media programs.

Colleen Raezler however, sees things quite differently. She suggests that the programs fail to properly depict LGBT characters as the dangerous deviants that they truly are.

“They don’t talk about the high rates of sexually transmitted diseases within the gay community,” said Raezler. “They don’t talk about the fact that their lifestyles are much more unstable; …they don’t have the commitment that married couples have or anything like that.” Nor do the programs acknowledge that homosexuals tend to live shorter lives, as statistics point out, added Raezler.

Raezler is convinced that the liberal elite media has a plan in motion to indoctrinate people to accept the gay lifestyle.

She evidently sees a conspiracy theory behind a quote she attributes to GLAAD explaining the importance of including LGBT characters, as offering “a meaningful opportunity to change the hearts and minds of people who may not have close LGBT friends or family members.”

Raezler advocates that people turn off their TV sets to reduce ratings, when gay characters turn up on programs, unless of course they are portrayed negatively.

    How dare you try to suggest that a gay family is not a “moral family.” Last time I read the bible it was filled with polygamy and incest and that is just for starters. How about you come down off of your high horse and get real. Gay and lesbians are not the ones destroying the sanctity of marriage and destroying families. It’s bitches like you that preach one thing and live by another standard. Shame on you and anyone who listens to the crap you are feeding them. I am a straight married woman telling you to mind your own business, let people lead lives that please them. If they are not a burden to society, why do you care. Your a burden. Your childish views are shameful and cause harm because idiots like you feel that you have a right to tell someone else how to live. I suggest that you f**k off and die… The world will be much better for it!!!

    I have a better idea: Turn off TV shows with religious wingnuts and Republicans (there’s about a 90% overlap there anyhow).

    Religious wingnuts and Republicans took the US economy that Clinton handed off to Bush from a small revenue surplus to one TRILLION dollars in deficit. Their agenda is “I want to control your life, no matter who it hurts or kills.”
