Homosexual Revolution In The Media Essay

1224 words - 5 pages

Is television turning the America public gay? In the article “Subversion Through Perversion” by William Jasper, he claims that forces in entertainment are trying to take their audience with them to hell. Jasper continues by saying that these “sodomites” (Jasper, 2005, para.1) are trying to force homosexuality on straight people and make them subconsciously accept it. He then claims that over the top homosexuals are trying to reform our society and culture but are unsuccessful with passing laws so the must do so through the media, through the placement of gay/lesbian characters in popular shows. Jasper explains how the “Velvet Mafia” (Jasper, 2005, para.5) is in charge of determining when it ...view middle of the document...

1). The medium he is talking about is the entertainment business and how it is essentially trying to take everyone with them to hell with their homosexual content and themes in television shows. The fact that homosexuality has been around longer than most entertainment forms completely demolishes this statement. Media is not turning people gay because you cannot turn gay or be forced, it is something that is predetermined; it is not a choice. Homosexual characters and content in television shows should not be an issue, they are normal characters like the other straight ones who have been around for years. “You may not know it, but you are being psychologically overhauled to accept the homosexual revolution "whether you like it or not."” (Jasper, 2005, para.2). The viewer is being overhauled to accept the “homosexual revolution” mentally without their knowledge. This is confusing because no one is forcing them to like the character exclusively because they are gay or like a real life human solely based on their sexual preference because that makes up such a small portion of their personality.
Television and other types of medias are helping by opening up people’s minds and educating them by including these types of characters. Whether they are gay, lesbian, transsexual, bisexual, asexual or pansexual, they are being included. Including these roles can help younger audiences that feel outcasted due to the lack of representation feel accepted. The inclusion of LGBTQ community into major media outlets can help it be seen as a normal and natural thing just like heterosexuality has been since the beginning of time. It also will help everyone grow as individuals and become more accepting.
Though Jasper has his own opinion on this topic, the way he went about delivering the information was quite biased since he only showed facts that would support his truths and portrayed the topic as one sided and definitely occurring. “This subversive crafting of the program content of network and cable TV is dictated by a contingent of homo-lesbo executives, artists, and consultants known in the trade as the Velvet Mafia…” (Jasper, 2005, para.5). Jasper describes these homosexuals as over the top because they are “injecting the American public with doses of “gay” culture” (Jasper, 2005, para.6) by adding a kiss here and a couple there. These over the top homosexuals Jasper refers to make up so little of the population. Over the top anything can be found in just about any demographic, and the ones “forcing” TV to include these types of scenes most likely are not over the top...
