Can't get much plainer than:

The fact you are a dumb racist who can't understand plain English isn't my fault.
I do wish I knew what I said to trigger you, I'd love to say it again!

The fact you care what "they're up to now" proves you are interested.

Sure, unless it's topix lgbt (male homosexual where you're concerned) threads or your urinating in rage restrooms.

A tv show with a lead character (and actor) who is openly gay is only "gay entertainment" when you have a psychosexual disorder.

I am interested, Rosie. I hate seeing freedom and personal choice being eroded. That's no lie.

Freak, it won't be any kind of entertainment on my TV's. If activists want to push this stuff onto the public that's fine, millions of people will not be watching it. The number of viewers has a huge influence on ad time prices, people opposed to seeing this kind of stuff will watch something else.

Just a few posts ago you said, "Won't matter to me".
Now, having a gay lead character in a show matters to you because it will erode freedom and personal choice!?
You homophobes can be some really paranoid nutcases...

What "stuff"? The lead character is gay.
There are gay people, you know that?
Don't you?
There are gay professionals, you know that?
Don't you?
Why shouldn't there be gay characters in TV shows?
I'm guessing you are imagining gay sex scenes.
