GLAAD Study Finds Lack Of LGBT Images, Offensive Content In Films From 7 Studios
Deadline ^

Posted on 07/22/2014 8:24:28 AM PDT by TigerClaws

GLAAD’s has released its second annual Studio Responsibility Index that maps the quantity, quality and diversity of images of LGBT people in films released by the seven largest motion picture studios during the 2013 calendar year: 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate, Paramount Pictures, Sony Columbia, Universal Pictures, The Walt Disney Studios and Warner Brothers. GLAAD found that of the 102 releases from the major studios in 2013, 17 of them included characters identified as lesbian, gay, or bisexual. It found that the majority of these characters were minor roles or cameos, and that many of these were outright defamatory representations in films such as Pain & Gain and Riddick.

TOPICS: Culture/Society; Miscellaneous; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS:
17 out of 102 roles were homosexual.

Homosexuals are 1.7% of the population.

A 10x over-representation of gays compared to their population is worthy of a failing grade?

For a group called GLAAD, they certainly never seem very happy.

Do these film faggots produce a list of fag-centric movies?

Good. Let them. So normal people will know what to avoid.

Also be laugh-worthy to see what failures these movies are as they bomb at the box office and lose money.

You need to use common core math. Do it again - until you get the answer wrong!

You would think GLAAD would lay off Hollyweird but I guess not since no way Hollyweird is going to fight back. Thanks to Hollyweird people think LGBTs make up I believe 20%-25% of the population off be a factor of 10.

"and that many of these were outright defamatory representations in films such as Pain & Gain and Riddick."

With the movie "Pain and Gain" it was because every character in it was repulsive. Easily one of the worst movies ever made.

Per the CDC...in a recent research study, by the CDC, it shows that ONLY 3% of the U.S. population is LGBT!

3% of the population gets this much media attention!

REALLY?!?!?

Yes. The first thing I thought when I read this article is that homosexuals are way OVER REPRESENTED in the media, according to the latest CDC report.

The pressure group progression;
1) Quit persecuting us,
2) Let us do our thing in peace,
3) We want acceptance,
4) Treat us as being normal,
5) Our rights are Civil Rights,
6) We demand our rights be accepted by everyone,
7) Failure to accept our rights is an offense to us,
8) Our prior victimhood trumps your rights,
9) Kiss our A$$ you primitive rejectionists!

Here’s a good related article, about how both parties are overemphasizing the importance of the LGBT movement for their own agenda. They are only 3.2 % of the population per CDC.

Saw that story and it’s a good one.

Bear in mind that ‘any same sex contact’ during a person’s lifetime is enough for them to be categorized as homosexual.

Drunken sorority college girl experience 30 years ago? Gay.

Even with that, they still are 2-3% numbers. That means the actual homosexual population is a fraction of what the poll numbers can push it up to.

Considering the following, I'd say the queers and fagots are more than properly represented:

Queers: "We are the 2.3%".     07/15/2014 192kb.pdf

Looks to me like the "major studios" are doing them a big favor.

I wonder why I haven't heard them boycotting this Dire Straits song:

See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup
Yeah buddy that's his own hair
That little faggot got his own jet airplane
That little faggot he's a millionaire

Drunken sorority college girl experience 30 years ago?

While the "drunken sorority girl experience" is often portrayed as common in popular culture, it was a relatively insignificant experience 20 years ago; 30 years ago it was practically unheard of...it would've been relegated to a freak show.

It was only after watching several seasons of "Friends," and "Will and Grace" and their positive portrayals of LGBT people did the Left acquire enough moral superiority to claim that LGBT folks are just like the rest of us.

The percentage of workers in the film industry who are LGBLTs is at least 25%.

Interesting coincidence with this article as I was watching the film of the Agatha Christie novel “Evil Under the Sun” last night. Peter Ustinov as Hercule Poirot, Maggie Smith as a snoopy hotel owner, and Roddy McDowell as a swishy suspect in the murder. In one line, Maggie tells the Belgian detective to “cherchez la fruit” in reference to checking out McDowell’s suspicious activities. Bet GLAAD would go into complete and utter meltdown with that line in a current release. Made me laugh, though...

Everyone shouldread the GLAAD report. It's comedy gold. I mean, you can't make this stuff up. Here is an example from their description of Riddick:

Later on, Dahl is disparagingly called a “lesbo” by the same man. Unfortunately, what could have been one of the better LGBT characters in a Hollywood action film recently is subverted by the film and protagonist’s treatment of her. . . . But the film also implies that Dahl becomes attracted to Riddick, who at one point promises that he’s going to “go balls deep into” her “but only after you ask me to, sweet-like.” Sure enough, when she returns to rescue him at the film’s climax, she coos “Lemme ask ya something. Sweet-like,” and when finally leaving, Riddick says “Tell Dahl to keep it warm for me.” The implication is quite clear that the hyper-masculine Riddick was too much for even a professed lesbian to resist, thereby validating one of the most egregious and stereotypical “straight-guy” fantasies, and treating her character with profound misogyny in the process.

2.3% identify themselves as gay, transgendered or bisexual, not 3.2%. 1.7 percent identify themselves as gay.

I believe the CDC report says there are 700K trannies. So around 0.23% or so.

At the same time they are beginning to tell kids they should try it before deciding they are straight or not.

Bisexual? It’s like the Diceman said. ‘You either suck it, or you do not suck it” there is no in-between.

No arguing with the Diceman, but I’ll betcha that the majority of those who responded bisexual are women.

17 movies out of 102 movies had one or more gay characters.

Not 17 out of 102 characters.

On the other hand, I wonder if there were 17 out of 102 movies that portrayed a Christian character at all, and how many were in a good light — given that Christians still make up a majority of the country, you’d expect that every movie with more than a half-dozen characters would have a least one church-goer.

I just watched Riddick this past week (a pretty pitiful movie in fact, a retread of the prior movie, with the same plot and conclusion pretty much).

And I will agree with them — given that her character was a pronounced lesbian, the idea that Riddick would somehow be such a man to interest her seems ridiculous.

A person who hates men is hardly going to like one that is extremely masculine. Of course, it is just a movie, and it is hilarious watching people get worked up over a movie.

But what is truly funny is how much the GLBT crowd loved Glee, while all I saw was gay people beating up other gay people, and other very unflattering portrayals of gay people as being abnormal, overly obsessed, and having quite some difficulty coping with the real world.

Most channels don’t play that verse any more. The Canadian govt banned it, and a station played it uncut to protest. Sirius XM plays the song without the verse.

As a joke, Weird Al ought to cut the “little Clampett” verse out of his parody.

What is actually interesting on it is that there is a medical condition where a chemical imbalance in the body actually can cause the gender confusion. However it is far, far less common than the incidence of trannies. So by a rough calculation, 99.5% of all trannies are simply loons or attention seekers (which considering their method of choice- loons). Yet even though it is clear that we’re dealing with a serious mental health issue, somehow the response is to let them be insane and celebrate the insanity.

The inmates are truly running the asylum now.
