    Cool Queers and Representation in Television

    in LGBT

    A discussion of how the media is slowly yet surely accepting more of the LGBTQ community on television. No longer are they just simply there for comedic relief, but are actually having their own lead roles in a new show, or as extremely important supporting characters. Tonight, we talk about shows coming up that should have more representation or doing a great job doing so. And past shows that were just teaming with wonderful array of the LGBTQ community.

    Community Representation - Are we scared we don't get what we deserve?

    in Entertainment

    I often wonder if the staunch defense of problematic icons in marginalized communities is some sort of residual internalized self hate? Or desperation? Or both?


    what would happen if we smashed all the pedestals of the rapists, misogynists, and domestic abusers in the black community?


    Not to say these types of predators and abusers don't exist in white communities- but white people have more visibility and more options. I know Rape and domestic Violence are underreported in white communities as well, so we may well be consuming movies and music by abusers. But when consuming white media I can easily choose to watch horror movies not affiliated with Polanski. I can watch comedies not directed by woody Allen or starring Sean Penn.


    But if I want to watch a nostalgic family friendly tv show featuring a black family and I ditch "the Cosby show"... I've got... "family matters". Those were the only 2 mainstream black family shows I remember from my childhood. Those were the only places I could watch people who looked like me, had hair like me, dealt with confusion about dating, family, growing up, and racism all at the same time.


    Is that why the black community hesitates to shun abusers in our midst? Because we won't have any representation if we cut out the bad people? Or is it because we think we don't deserve better representation and we secretly believe the lies we've been fed about ourselves?


    Is it a mix of both? Don't we deserve better? Both in terms of more representation and better role models? 
    Why don't we demand more for ourselves? Are we scared we don't deserve more or scared we won't get what we deserve?

    in Pop Culture

    A continuation on Tuesday's episode discussing the queer community and how they are represented in the media. Last time, we talked about how whether television has succesfully or not, portrayed or at least included the LGBTQ+ community. Such as current airing shows, or past ones. In this episode, we'll see how the music industry has done when it came to representation. Famous musicians who are queer,the public's feedback, musicians who freely express they're queer friendliness, and the list goes on!

    The View Up Here and @Subscatter discuss Missing The Point

    in Politics

    How many problems do you see when you look at society around you? Does the society you are being sold exist in reality? Or is it a disconnected dream towards the so-called "Perfect World". Are the prizes in this dream even accessible or do they fall into the "some day" category. No matter what dreams you may strive to, the same system can also sell you a tailored list of why those dreams are under threat.


    So much airtime, bandwidth, column space, billboards and snail mail devoted to telling you exactly what the problems are. Regardless of your personal beliefs or convictions. There is plenty to go around, by design. Compartmentalization is a modern art form, keeping polar opposites locked in battle over.... nothing. The names change in the current edition of the same old wedge issue, but the rhetoric never does. And it takes its course. And nothing changes.


    For all the connectivity speed of light global reach that happens, why do the same problems never go away? And why are the bigger systemic institutional problems hardly ever mentioned? Maybe it's because you are surrounded by Distraction Central.


    Join @Subscatter and your host for discussion on the distraction industry. Already in a town near you.
