As I have said before, gay is the new black. I am not saying that the history of violence toward them is similar. But the discrimination is:
It looks as though ABC just decided to shut down the possibility of two male dancers dancing with one another to Who Is Fancy’s new song “Boys Like You,” featuring Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor, on an upcoming episode ofDancing With The Stars.
Who Is Fancy’s choreographer had planned on having two men dance together on the show because the song is about two men falling in love with one another.
However, it would seem a producer from Dancing With The Stars got back to the choreographer and said: “Apologies all but this is a definitive no from the network.”
At about what time in this nation’s history are we going to let this sexual apartheid go? I think ABC is making a major miscalculation. No doubt the network is afraid of losing eyeballs and consequently money, but don’t they already have a gay-friendly presence on TV anyway? Modern Family certainly isn’t losing ratings because of its homosexual characters.
Well, it took us until 1967 before we allowed interracial marriage. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that I still live in a very backwards society that never, ever lives up to the promises it makes to its denizens.
