Quote# 13172

There is a NEW TV show that is going to come out this FALL. My pastor told us about this at Wednesday morning service. He said it's a REALITY TV show that puts one normal man in a house with 9 sexually active homosexual males for 6 months. The homosexual males are supposed to TRY to MAKE THIS MAN A HOMOSEXUAL!

Does anyone know what this fuckwit is talking about? Not that reality TV couldn't imagine something that stupid, but I still suspect this is something either made up or grossly distorted by Mrs Homophobe or the guru of her little cult.

I doubt anyone would put up with this. I know I wouldn't. The only candidates would be closet cases who'll enjoy their stay.

Perhaps after they fail in their \"mission\" to turn the straight guy gay, the fundies will leave gay people alone.

Is this going to be a real show, or is the pastor 'lying for jesus'

Homosexuals are not made, they are born.

EVEN IF such a show airs (and I don't think it's possible anymore to define a lowest level of taste beyond which TV wouldn't sink), and EVEN IF a \"straight\" guy on the show \"turns gay,\" anyone who believes it to be true is extraordinarily gullible. That kind of naivete keeps politicians, diet fads, and used-car salesmen in business.

This is just nonsense.

How long will it be until you calm down and stop blowing things out of proportion to make yourself more stressed out over non-issues than you already are?

I mean seriously, you are upset at someone for trying something. If you can't accept that it's a dumb reality tv show trying to cash in on whatever half-brained concept they can come up with, at least wait for the results before going on a rampage. The very fact that people like you seem to think it's possible and care one way or another is why someone is able to make money off such an idea. And now you and your pastor are going around giving this show free advertising when many people (myself included) would not have even known about it otherwise.

She should be more concerned about American kids copying MTV's reality shows and living in a plastic bubble.

Awww, this show ain't no good.

It seems I had heard of a reality show along these lines, but I can't remember any details. I don't think it was as dire as Mrs. Paige makes it out to be. As stupid as these shows are, I can't imagine TV execs going to as extreme an absurdity as this.

But if true, and as others have said, it's a freakin' reality TV show. I don't watch any of them; they're a total waste of my time.

frankly, she lost me at \"Wednesday morning service\".

Either there's a church out there for Fourth Day worship, or she's WAYYYYYY too keen.

7/20/2006 3:05:51 PM


No, I think what it was, was a humorous \"quiz\" in which several new proposals for reality shows were described, and you, as the reader, got to guess which were real pitches being made, and which were fakes.

Undoubtedly, some pastor did read this puzzle, failed to realize it was a puzzle and took it as gospel (pun definitely intended) and preached about it to his sheep.

With a quick Google search the closest I could come up with was He's a Lady:

He's A Lady, a gender-bending series that will give eleven macho men the opportunity to walk a mile in women’s shoes when they are given a complete feminine makeover.

... each week the He's A Lady's competitors will learn something new about what it’s like to live as a lady, from dealing with bras and jewelry to bonding with real women in typically all-female activities.

Weekly challenges for the competitors will include learning how to behave like a lady, followed by going out in public to find out how convincing they are; being trained how to be a supermodel; planning a real wedding and then being asked to serve as the bridesmaids; and, finally, completing a multi-tasking challenge back in their hometowns where the guys must remain in character in front of family and friends.

It's scheduled to air October 12 so this is likely what she's talking about since she mentions the show will be on in the fall. Sounds like her pastor was exaggerating a wee bit if this is what she means.

7/20/2006 3:47:04 PM


Yeah, yeah, yeah. You just send me an e-mail when that show actually airs and then we can talk about it. You remind me of that dope who got all exercised over a \"pro-abortion\" article on the Onion.

Has anyone detected a logical reason for the CAPITALIZED words in this post?

7/20/2006 3:48:54 PM


I think these raging fundy homophobes are really in the dark. A dark, dark closet that is.

7/20/2006 4:25:30 PM


Capitalised LETTERS show just how MUCH of a RAGING ASSHAT I am!

I thought American Idol had been on for a while.

Sandman: you win at teh internets today for that comment.

Mrs. Paige: the best justification for becoming a lesbian I have ever found was the male teachers at the CHRISTIAN, PRIVATE school I went to. Plank in your own eye, lady, plank in your own eye.

I believe this fundie is talking about a past episode of 30 days, which requires people to live with people the would ordinarily avoid. (an upcoming episode has a minuteman living with a family of illegal immigrants)

7/20/2006 5:40:14 PM


The Queen of Random Capitalization strikes again. Someone take her keyboard away, she sounds completely hysterical, she could hurt herself.

7/20/2006 6:45:56 PM


Mm hm. I've never heard of such a show, and I watch a lot of TV.
