Stereotypical gay, bi guys in TV shows


Recommended Posts

I loved the story arc for Justin in Ugly Betty. I once had someone tell me I remind me of him. Which I took as an insult (and probably was), but looking back they weren’t wrong. The character had a big arc where he did come out and had a relationship. But the special thing was he came out without saying “I’m gay”. He held his boyfriend’s hand and danced. So beautiful. Also loved that his gay mentor (Marc) had a mom who actually didn’t accept him and totally rejected him. I thought that was nice and realistic.

You read it, conservative gays don't deserve representation cos you guys are indeed the minority of most gays, and laughed at and denied your orientation the most. 

 

Because you guys perfer being discreet and in the closet most of your adult life. 

 

Tapping your shoe in a bathroom stall as Santana would say. 

:watrusayin_britney_xfactor_confused_shocked_surprised_um_what: According to your logic, gays as a whole don't deserve representation either because they're the minority in the current hetero***ual society we live in. On that note, you're demonstrating a rather conservative behaviour with your comment so you're once again going against your beliefs. Also, don't confuse ***ual orientation with political ideologies; sometimes they may overlap but sometimes they may not. As long as you don't harm people, I don't see any problem being masculine or discreet or anything else really.

How can you NOT base a fictional character on some type of stereotype? :demi_lipstick_flirt_red_pink_makeup:

Still waiting for an answer - what baseline for a FICTIONAL character would you use if you did not start with stereotypes and wanted to make a relatable film?
