The Land of a Glee and a Home of a Depraved
On Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly recently worked himself and one of Fox News’ many heading blondes, Fox Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson, into an comprehensive tizzy over an part of Glee that featured a transgender teen. This led to serve contention per other characters that have seemed on Glee, that is now in a fourth deteriorate on Fox. Apparently, some of a show’s other storylines have enclosed happy masculine characters, dual cheerleaders who are lesbians, dual high propagandize seniors who are intent to be married, and dual students who done a sex tape. O’Reilly voiced his regard that Glee is glamorizing “alternative lifestyles,” that he fears would lead to investigation among unsupervised teens, generally when it comes to, of course, homosexuality. O’Reilly went on to serve opine, “A lot of these dopey kids are confused about who they are.” Way to connect, Bill. Not usually do teenagers respond definitely to condescension, though they adore it when we use hip terminology like “dopey.”
Look, I’m flattering certain that anyone examination Glee is already during slightest half-gay. (Just kidding.) But let’s say, hypothetically, that an liquid of full-on heterosexual teenagers happened to locate a Glee part that featured a same-sex masculine kiss. Maybe they already have. Am we unequivocally ostensible to trust that this would lead them to dally in same-sex experimentation? And what if it did? Would it be so horrible? What would be a downside? Fewer teen pregnancies? Lower termination rates? More big teens?
The bottom line is: It’s not going to happen. The whole grounds is absurd. However, as we all know, Bill O’Reilly is never wrong about anything. Meanwhile, he’s wrong about many everything. After all, this is a male who wrote a book about Abraham Lincoln, an simply researchable chronological figure, so riddled with inaccuracies that a bookstore during Ford’s Theater refused to sell it. O’Reilly should hang to a fact-free polemics to that his code of regressive violence is improved suited. we would peril that by a time we are in a teens, many of us know what appeals to us sexually. During my infirm years, as a heavily closeted happy Southern boy, flattering most all we was unprotected to on radio and in a cinema was oodles of glamorized heterosexual sex. On tip of that were a consistent reminders that all homosexuals were hellbound freaks. And still, not once did that stimulate me to, even on a particularly initial level, have sex with a female, especially since we only knew in my heart that it wouldn’t be satisfactory to possibly one of us. It wasn’t only about sex; it was about emotions. we theory my relatives did a sufficient pursuit of instilling in me a clarity of what is right and what is wrong. Unfortunately, by his possess admission, a immature Bill O’Reilly was so simply manipulated that when he saw an picture of James Dean smoking a cigarette, it done him wish to fume one, too. Now, that’s dopey.
