Let BRAVO Know What You THINK About Their Homosexual Agenda!
07/29/03 | Kieri

Posted on 07/29/2003 6:25:52 AM PDT by Kieri

This morning I decided to let BRAVO have an earful. Here is my email:

"As a DirecTV subscriber, I am notifying you I am permanently blocking BRAVO from my menu on my DSS receiver.

Your push for homosexual-'friendly' programming demonstrates your pandering to an audience that exhibits behavior that is not only detrimental to their own health, but the health and safety of families everywhere. I refuse to risk allowing my children to see promo material on your channel, so I find it necessary to block BRAVO and will encourage others to do so. Your advertisers will no longer reach me or my family members, and I have let DirecTV know of our all too easy decision to block BRAVO.

You may consider a homosexual audience on worthy of pursuit, but families who treasure their own lifestyles think otherwise."

I encourage others to let both BRAVO and their cable/DSS companies know that you're blocking their agenda-pushing programming!

BRAVO's "Contact Us" page is here:

OR you can smail mail them here:

They do have an openly gay agenda, but that "Queer Eye" show is a riot.

Geez. Did anyone learn ANYTHING from "The Last Temptation of Christ"? The more of a fit you throw, the more people will tune in to see what the big deal is. When these shows get the low ratings that they will inevitably receive, the stations will cancel them. They count on controversy to attract viewers.

"Queer Eye For The Straight Guy" is a funny show. If you don't like it, don't watch it. I'm straight and don't feel threatened at all by shows like this. Why do you?

I would if I could. I am, however, getting sick of being told "if you don't want to see it turn it off" when homosexuals refuse to do so. Email isn't as effective as a snail mail letter, but I feel obligated to say something. If I can make them question their pocketbook on the smallest of scales, all the better.

Do you have children?

War and terrorism are difficult enough to explain to kids. I'd rather not have to explain "Mom, why is that man kissing that other man?" I just hope I NEVER have to explain "Mom, why is that man kissing that boy?"

I saw parts of the episode that ran on NBC last week. It was ok. I wonder what a show called "Straight Eye for the Queer Guy" would be like.

Ha ha - that's right! Those happy funny queers sure are zany. Just keep laughing and before too long you'll no longer worry at all that the mean old Bible and most other religions of the world condemn such behavior. You'll soon forget that up until just a few years ago, such behavior was considered a mental disorder. And as far as those nagging fun-stopping stastics (like suicide rates among queers, disease carrying, and pedophilia) - just grab your popcorn and let it all go. Keep laughing and it will all go away.

Remember, normalization begins at home.

I still have cable. I support you in your protest. My daughter and her family have a dish. I know they block things that they do not want their children to see.

I am sick of the push for the acceptability of the gay lifestyle. I am not threatened by it. I just do not like the "in your face" mentality they display. I have known gays all my life, have friends who are gay, etc. My problem is not with them. They have made the decision to live as they do. My problem is with the strident "you have to agree with me, and accept what I say as the only way to be" message some are sending.

Will you feel the same way when you come home from work and see your five-year old son wearing a dress and kissing the neighbor boy?

It's already too late for the gays to recruit you, but they've got plenty of time to target your children. Remember, they can't reproduce, so they recruit!

My only advice is from John Prine...

"Blow up your TV throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try an find Jesus on your own."

I E-Mailed them the following:

Homosexuality revolts me. Why you would want to pander to a minority of the population, while repelling a majority of the population is puzzling. However, I learned long ago that it is pointless to attempt to manage someone else's business.

I have removed your channel from my cable service.

Is any else sick of these fags as I am? Give me a break the media's darling's. I hope they fall out of "fashion" when the political correct media folk find that they are not making money with the queer label.

I heard a 1010 wins Am radio news spot this morning: If you can't get enough of gay TV, you need not worry...

Funny that some conservatives find this stuff entertaining.

That would explain why I kept seeing that "Queer Eye ..." Show on NBC last week.

Is it just, me or does anyone else see these queers on TV and want to shout "Stop acting like a egomaniacal supermodel! TRY to act like a man!"

You might as well explain that there are wicked, perverted men out there right now.
That way, he'll know what to do when his teacher, coach, next door neighbor or Boy Scout leader tries a little "hands on" training.
It's only a matter of time.

Pat Moynihan, retired senator from NY, coined a great phrase when he referred to this type of "normalization". He called it "A diminuation of deviation."

I think in general there is nothing much to watch on TV. Too bad DirecTV does not have an a-la-cart option that lets you choose the channels you want and skip those you don't want. Does anyone know of a satellite service that does have that?

Nope, don't have kids (by choice). Why are you letting your kids watch the show? If they don't watch, you won't have to explain it to them.

I don't let my kids watch that filth, but sometimes kids are somewhere else and you don't know what they are watching. Or, perhaps, the neighbors kids are watching that crap on TV and decide to try out what they saw on Queer TV with your children.

It may seem crewel, but I verbally belittle anyone that mentions they watch homo TV. I tell them they're falling for Marxist propaganda, hook, line, and sinker. I recommend they use their search engine and learn the history of Marx and his beliefs, and his lust for young boys.
Then I write down the URL of the homosexual manifesto , and sincerely, whole heartedly, recommend they read it - for their own good. They'd find it "unusual.".
I do say it nicely though. With a smile. I really do care about them. It hurts to see them being programmed by liberal media and anti-American messages.

One copy of the homosexual manifesto for those who haven't read it.
There's other copies available on the net.

Remember, they can't reproduce, so they recruit!

Yes, most children seem to have closer same-sex friends before they start to appreciate the opposite sex. All we need is a little propaganda to tell them "You aren't really best friends , but you and the other 10 year old down the street are really latent homosexuals whom society is trying to repress. So go and experiement with homosexual sex. You can dress well, as an added bonus of being gay!"

Most parents are so absent that this will probably work with a certain percentage of children and the homosexual ranks will swell. Then the radical homosexual lobby will get even more political power, their ultimate goal.

If you think TV doesn't influence, ask yourself how many kids these days actually think the "music" on MTV is good?

Well gee. I watched an episode of that show with my wife. If kids were watching, they would have learned how to make Foie Gras, organize their closet, trim their hair, and how to accessorize an outfit. I hope my kids will never learn that filth.

Get a V-chip. Get a grip. The Ricki Lake and Jerry Springer shows are much more offensive than this show. Some people are way too insecure about their sexuality.

I love Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. It is funny and and well done and the guys seem to be professionals. I hope they don't change it. Of course, since it is good, they will probably take it off the air just like Homicide Life on the Streets which remains the top show ever.

Also, the program that's suppose to follow is just one of those soon to be tired of ginned out so called realty wonders that I never watch and will never watch. The real reason they are on is just like Hitlery and Bill, the greed and money.

Just wait until these "fashion mavens" of today hit their 40's and 50's - decrepit, covered with cancerous sores and scabs, withered away into leathery shells, coughing up blood in the last stages of some terminal disease acquired because their body's immune system has shut down.


Where's the humor now?

There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.

BRAVO has turned out to be TRASHTV. Last night I was trying to watch, The Man In the Moon. A really good wholesome movie on BRAVO, but there were so many promos for the "queer" movie, I had to change the channel.

ROFL. I was thinking the same thing. What a horrible message to keep your kids away from.

Living in filth with garbage lying around, dressing like a slob, poor personal grooming, never learning to cook because ordering in pizza is preferable, and never using your imagination are all values true conservatives should teach their kids.....

When Hollywood was producing the Scooby-Doo cartoon for movie theaters, they originally had the two girls as lesbians. They say "Who can argue about them being lesbians? Who can argue that there wasn't sex between these two?"
Parents were outraged, and "freeped" the creators. They eventually removed the lesbian kissing from the cartoon.
Anyone who says the liberals aren't after your children are as blind as bats. Dead bats.
They're like Satanic minions. They're everywhere the children are.
People who have no children can tell parents to watch and guide their children, but with negative influence burried in something as child-like as a cartoon, it's the hardest job on earth.
Those parents who homeschool should be praised for the job they do. They know their children are safe from the legions. Other parents can't say that. They'll never know what messages are taught in the public schools and liberal neighbor houses and their children.
Reading this thread alone, I can honestly say I wouldn't want my kids near many of you. I love my kids.

Not so long ago the opinion was that the world was flat.

And yet believing the earth was flat did not lead to suicide, broken families, pedophilia, and increased rates of STDs.

And the subliminal message of this program is......?
Which person would YOUR child chose to be? The straight slob, or the germless, well educated, organized, humorous homosexual?
Your child would see the homosexual as good, the straight guy as an idiot.
See?

Yes. I know that I would have switched to men if I knew that I could have my closet organized and would wear color co-ordinated clothes. Good thing I discovered women first. I could have been a Liza Minnelli fan. Oh, the humanity!

We could just stop using the dopey term 'gay' outright.

How about 'SAD', an acronym for Sexually Addicted Deviant...

Explain the basis of this term to your kids. It sure takes the 'fun' out of being homosexual, doesn't it!

PS.....

Notice how they never show the gay guy that's fat, hairy, disease riddled, and toothless on TV. It's bad for mental images. It's bad "mental programming".
Gays have to look better, smarter, richer, etc. so the lifestyle lures people tward it, or tward acceptace of it.
"Look how wonderful the gay lifestyle is. YOU can be one of us , too. The beautiful, the elite."
It's subliminal programming. It is NOT safe for impressionable kids.
