Disney's Rich Ross: Hollywood's first openly gay studio chairman
Los Angeles Times ^ | October 6, 2009 | Patrick Goldstein

Posted on 10/07/2009 1:35:15 PM PDT by Sam_Damon

Disney has long been the most gay friendly studio in Hollywood, having had a couple of gay production chiefs over the years, most recently Nina Jacobson, now an independent producer after being forced out in a studio purge several years ago. The studio's theme parks have allowed unofficial Gay Day celebrations for years, prompting a host of venemous attacks from various Christian right anti-gay zealots.

But Disney now has a really big first -- Rich Ross, Hollywood's first openly gay studio chief.

Anyone foolish enough to give Disney money is supporting this and ABC News.

But Disney STILL doesn’t have any position on Gay Days, right?

I thought they finally figured out that, at least with the parks, that gay people don’t have kids. No kids, no revenue.

Disney has the first openly gay chairman???? Funny stuff.

I guess Disney just ain’t what it used to be.

Gay men are behind the low ridin’ jeans phenomenon. I mean really, who else wants to see butt cracks????

Somehow Disney and Gay don’t mix.

It doesn't matter what you do with your [penis], just what you do with your job. It's a new era in Hollywood. Rich Ross will only be judged by how well he makes the product and and how commercial it is, not who he is in his private life.

A subsequent judgment will surprise these people.

Even the phrase “mom jeans” was invented by gay male “designers”.

Of course, some of the low rise culture is from prisons - the men who walked around with the really low rise pants were advertising to the other men that they were willing and ready for some “anal”.

Of course, some people wear low rise jeans because they shop at JC Penney or WalMart and just don’t know any better. LOL

#####

Really?

Mainstreaming the “gay lifestyle” is nothing less than a host of venemous attacks upon the foundation of Western Civilization.

I pray you’re only talking about men. Why? Most women wear low rise jeans now. At least most of my friends do. They’re just more comfortable. Who wants to look like Obama throwing a limp wristed pitch anyway?

I should have been more clear. Low rise jeans looks really horrible on men because you never know if a man is wiping himself properly after going “number two” and in addition to the whole “gay” thing...

Thin, pretty, attractive, young women look rather OK in low rise jeans although I wish they conducted themselves with a little more modesty.

Short Disney.

The fagele thing led to disaster for Disney before; they started producing anti-family trash and people stopped buying their crap. It will tank them again.

Agree completely. Remember when he asked Annette not to appear in a bikini as it offended his sense of modesty?

“It’s not just the first time ever, but it’s the greatest thing ever,” he told me jubilantly. “After all these years, what finally matters is — show me the money! It doesn’t matter what you do with your [penis], just what you do with your job”
