Know what I can't stand, they have channels for blacks and hispanics, but if there was a white stars or white HBO or a White Entertainment Television there would be countless lawsuits because of racism.

How about the United Honky College Fund?

Hetero TV, the first channel entirely for straight people. (no gays allowed, no feminine hygeine commercials etc....)


The homo shopping channel......

Homo and gayden TV

Markus Stewart homo decorating and cocking channel...

NEWS FLASH!!!

That little thing that came with your TV with all the numbers and buttons on it... THAT LETS YOU CHANGE THE CHANNEL!!!!!1

If you don't want to watch it, don't.

I don't like BET, but I dont switch cable companies.

I heard the new cooking show on the Gay channel is going to cover the proper way to "toss a salad".
Link Posted: 8/27/2005 10:10:03 AM EDT
Back in the sixties it was "coming together" and the end of "separate but equal" doctrine.

Now everywhere you look the cry is "diversity".

From where I'm sitting we're damn near full circle. *EVERYONE* demands that they have their own "special place", no one wants to do anything as a whole, but keep sifting through and spotlighting our differences, proclaiming them as somehow making them "special".

God help anyone that suggests that we're all basically the same and should work for common goals affecting everyone for you will be hounded as "insensitive", "sexist", "homophobic", "xenophobic", blah, blah, blah...

We're going to "diversify" ourselves into oblivion.

Not a comparisson of apples to apples, but a few years ago some law enforcement guys tried to form the White Patrolmans Association or Deputies Association (can't remember if they were Houston Police of Harris County Deputies). Anyhow, a big stink broke our and they were ordered to disband.

Since gayness is a sexual preference, why not have a channel where everyone on it is required to be into scat and piss? Or maybe just a general anal fetish channel. Don't forget the felchers, they need a channel too.

How in the fuck being gay moved from a mere sexual preference to a bullshit "culture" where their sexual habits are shoved in your face is beyond me.

I've had people introduce themselves to me as a gay person before, as though it were an occupation. This is no different from me introducing myself to someone, and immediately outlining for them the exact way I like to fuck my wife.

I have nothing against gay people. I just don't care to hear about sexual preference/fetish/favorites being some grand differentiation between people. The ONLY thing different between me and some gay dude are what we prefer to do in bed. Why do either of our preferences need to be accentuated?

Either way... I could care less. Just another channel I'm paying for that I won't watch. Look on the bright side... most channels seem to be like 30% informercials in a 24 hour period. From about 7-9am they start running regular programming and then at like 12-2am they return to paid advertisements.

Because we get REAL tired of day after day, week after week seeing shows where a female and a male are being affectionate, kissing, hugging, hey, even fighting... I tape ANYTHING "queer" that comes on, because 95% of the time I'm fine w/it, but every now and again it just gets on my nerves & I have do drag out the "queer" disks and VHS tapes and have a "gay tv day" where EVERY show I watch has SOMETHING I can relate to.

Of course right NOW I'm having a "Independence Day" Marathon I watched it twice last night and running it for the second time tonight. No queers, just backside kicking

Question: Why pay for what you don't watch?



I think that the technology EXISTS where it would be SIMPLE for the asshats to turn on/off whatever channels YOU (or I) didn't want to pay for. They don't DO that, IMO, because the CHANNELS pay the cable companies to CARRY them AND then WE pay the cable companies to GET the channels...so......I think they make more $$ by "packaging" many together.

IF I COULD pick and choose, I'd pay for:

Last I checked gay shit is on every channel nowdays. ABC, MTV, and every other channel I flip through. Every reality show has to have a fag or two as a sideshow attraction. The sad thing is that there's enough gay programming to create an entire network.

May I suggest Spike TV?
Link Posted: 8/29/2005 12:07:17 PM EDT
I think a Gay Channel is a great idea. Remember, half of all gay people are Lesbians. Right now I gotta get back to watching "The L-Word" with the sound off.
Link Posted: 8/29/2005 12:38:39 PM EDT
If my board-fu were stronger I'd insert the Gary Coleman "Who fuckin' cares?" pic. It's just another special interest demographic to cater to with tailored programming. There's channels like OLN, SPEED and the Food channel. If gay stuff isn't your bag, there are plenty of other channels out there.
