Certain groups of people bang on about the 'gay agenda' and homosexuality being allegedly forced down their throats through the media. Naturally, it's assumed the media is this liberal entity that glorifies homosexuality.

But I've increasingly noticed that the media often shows the same old representations of gay men and women. Gay men must be seen as effeminate walking stereotypes that love cheesy Europop and a party lifestyle. If they're not happy-go-lucky superficial, shallow figures, then they're victims. And this is all from the 'liberal' media. I was shocked when I researched gay history and learnt about men and women who rioted and tore the streets up demanding their rights. People from all walks of life and backgrounds, and yet we see the same old stereotypes day in day out.

Are there any gay people who agree with me? You can disagree too

Every group of people is stereotyped in the media, at least to a certain extent. So no, I wouldn't say so.
