Social Matter - Weimerica Weekly - Hollywood's Scrubbing of Gays

This week's Weimerica Weekly is on the scrubbing of gays by Hollywood. I poke fun at the basic way Hollywood portrays gays in a completely angelic fashion. I discuss when it seemed to kick into overdrive, a past portrayal that was more realistic but is of course horrible to SWPLs now, and then I mention a weird way that they frame gays so your disgust gets channeled into another emotion. Hollywood is molding your opinion and does so in blatant and subtle ways.

On the one hand there's normalizing and on the other there's erasure of heterosexuality...probably because of the heavy influence of gays on casting, more leading men are twinky, even supposed action heroes or romantic leads
