[Anglican Mainstream] 6 Nov 2008--Hollywood, backed by the news media, is doing its best to “desensitize” Americans to “alternative” sexual preferences. In the new television season, a record 22 series on ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and CW will feature a total of 35 homosexual, bisexual or transsexual characters. This does not even take into account MTV’s all-gay LOGO network or Showtime’s The L Word series.
“Desensitization” is one of the principal strategies employed by homosexual activists to advance their political agenda. The idea is to overwhelm the public with images of wholesome homosexual individuals and couples, in order to reduce people’s instinctive resistance to homosexuality and overcome the public perception that homosexuality is a distasteful, abnormal lifestyle.
The strategy appears to be working. In a September 28 article, New York Times reporter Mireya Navarro credited Hollywood for increasing cultural acceptance of homosexuality: “Hollywood, with its depictions of cowboy lovers and lesbian neighbors, has done much to make gay men and women part of mainstream American life.”
