Please don’t ignore the small sub caption below the massively bold title. “And saved a young girl’s life”. The claim, as will be seen, is that by showing positive homosexual characters on TV, they are saving young lives. But what will not be addressed is the”honest” reason why the young life was in danger of being lost. Nor the fact that the culprit that actually threatened the young life was themselves connecting it to the fact that the reason was mental instability. But I am getting ahead of the story. The article begins by saying:
“Superhero stories: simple cartoon escapism, right? Superpowers that cut through tough everyday situations, saving souls and intervening before danger can strike—a total fiction, surely. But in the case of Supergirl, the DC Comics character, and the CW's television series about her, startlingly meaningful things are happening to fans in real life.”
Please note that a TV series is causing “startlingly meaningful things to happen to fans in real life”.
You should know that the use of hyperbole and sensationalistic words are a key part of their propaganda.
“And it's all because of a particular storyline in Supergirl, in which the character Alex Danvers (played by Chyler Leigh) comes out as a lesbian.”
So it is not all fans but a particular kind of fan that experienced this Startlingly meaningful event. A Fan who struggling with, no, depressed over her homosexual desires. Not because she knew it was a bad thing to desire, but because of how others treated her or would treat her if they knew about it. Notice carefully that they always spin it to be a homosexual victim issue and never a rebellion against their natural function issue.
She continues now with the standard story about how someone came to the rescue of a hurting homosexual, she says:
“Take a real-life tale that went viral on Twitter in December 2016. A comic book store clerk notices a teenage girl walking up and down the new release aisle. The clerk, Mary Swangin, heads over to help. Thanks to the now much-shared Twitter story, many know what happened next. The teen explains that she's looking for Supergirl, and Swangin asks if she watches the show. Making conversation—she's not just good at her job, she's also a huge comics fan herself—Swangin says she's a big #sanvers shipper: a term that refers to the relationship between Supergirl characters Alex Danvers and Maggie Sawyer (played by Floriana Lima).
That's it: The dam breaks. Tears start flowing down the girl's face, and Swangin realizes she's just met a young woman coming to terms with her sexuality.”
Alert! Notice how the issue is framed, She is a young woman “coming to terms with her sexuality”, not struggling with the confusion of her sexuality, which would be more accurate. You see, their goal is not to present the truth, but to use this situation to influence and appeal to the readers, that homosexuals are normal people who just come to accept their different type of sexual attractions, but who are hampered and abused by heterosexuals who refuse to accept them and who make them feel bad about their sexuality and this drives them to want to kill themselves.
“How does she know? Well, it's like looking in a mirror. She went through the same thing herself. Swangin offers reassurance, knowing all too well the feelings of isolation and apprehensiveness; she herself was forced out after a friend she'd confided in about liking girls spread the news far and wide. "I was probably about her age when all this stuff happened," she tells me. "I almost wasn't looking at her, I was looking at myself."
Notice, the store clerk says she was herself a victim of betrayal and isolation and could identify with the young girl’s pain. Nothing will be said about the things that actually caused her to like women or the psychological ramifications of such desires. Only victimization and hurt, and the need for compassion and acceptance. There will be no effort or talk of examining the options of getting her back on track to normalcy. This is their game, their AGENDA. Now here comes the power push… she continues:
“The girl confesses that she'd tried to kill herself—a heartbreaking detail that highlights the higher suicide rate amongst LGBTQ youth.”
There it is, the “their rejection and failure to accept me MADE ME TRY TO KILL MYSELF” tactic. I admit, it is a formidable tactic, one that must be addressed carefully because it is so easy to be viewed as heartless and uncompassionate if you don’t seem to care about someone being DRIVEN to kill themselves. That is the goal, they use it because it is so slippery and can easily be spun as uncaring, but we must not be intimidated by such tactics. We must boldly ask the tough questions and force their hand. Questions like, “just how does our objection to or our unwillingness to accept a sinful act FORCE someone to kill themselves? And what happened to personal accountability? Are you not admitting that they are psychologically unstable? What kind of person kills themselves because others refuse to agree with or accept their sexuality? These questions do not come up in such homosexual agenda articles as this.
“Supergirl, though, came to the rescue, but not in fantastical, comic-book fashion. Watching Alex's story on TV helped. Alex, an outrageously smart, effective special agent, and adopted sister to Supergirl, realizes she's gay when she meets police detective Maggie Sawyer (who, in the comic book world, is actually Batwoman's partner). Seeing a successful, admirable character come out on television and continue to have a professional life, a family life, and a romantic life saved her own.”
Notice first that Alex is said to be “outrageously smart”, another common claim of propaganda is that homosexuals are among the smartest and most talented people in the world. This myth is again spread to give appeal to the homosexual. It is sad but true that this claim had been effective in convincing people to believe that homosexuals are smarter than heterosexuals. The illogic of the claim is missed because the best and brightest homosexuals are constantly displayed as the standard among them on TV and in the movies. The fact is however, that homosexuality has nothing to do with a person’s IQ or talent level. And to claim that is does is disrespectful to the public.
But then she goes on the say that the storyline of Supergirl’s adopted sister Alex coming out as lesbian on the show, saved her life. Really? The question must be asked, what does that say about your level of intelligence and stability, when a representation of your sinful desires on TV is required to keep you from killing yourself? You see how foolish it sounds when they are not in control of the description and narrative? That is why they must control their narrative. Because if an honest person does, it will be presented in a realistic manner that exposes the illogic of their claims. This is also why they have gone all out to control their image on TV and in the movies.
She continues with another story to hopefully tug at the hearts of the readers while at the same time, condemn or shame those who dare to view homosexuality as sin.
“That's not all. In January, Dened Rey was on a flight to Vancouver watching Supergirl--the episode where Alex reveals to her superhero sister that she's a lesbian.
A man interrupts her viewing to tell her she's being "inconsiderate and disrespectful" of the children on board and that she shouldn't expose them to the "gay abomination" on her screen. He casts racial slurs and homophobic epithets at her, before demanding a flight attendant move him to another seat.”
This is another of their many carefully crafted tactics to get the public to sympathies with them against their “haters”, they always use the worst kind of heterosexual offenders as the standard when they know that such people are the vast minority and not the majority. But you see; that fact would not help their cause and so they must exaggerate it.
“Becoming increasingly upset, Rey explains to the flight attendant what has happened; another passenger corroborates her story. The flight attendant upgrades her to a first class seat. That would have been a heartwarming tale in itself, but there's more. Rey's new neighbor also notices what she's watching. But instead of complaining, like Rey fears, the woman has her own story to share about how Supergirl changed her life.
The woman in first class explains that when her best friend told her she was a lesbian, she couldn't handle it. But Supergirl, which her daughter loved, helped her to understand the friend's struggle more—and even prepared her for the possibility that her own daughter was gay.”
Here again is an example of how they use media to influence the public to think the way they want them to. They spin the stories to “warm your heart” towards loving homosexuals. Notice that this grow woman needed a TV drama series to teach her how to deal with her best friend coming out to her, and the possibility that her own daughter may be a lesbian. Interesting, she had no qualified pastor, minister, family member or friend that was informed enough or compassionate enough to be able to help her with this issue. She needed a TV drama to help her through this. And now you see why every sitcom and drama on TV must have homosexual content and characters. It is necessary to help people understand how they should deal with their homosexual friends and family members, as well as their own sexual identity. How simple, why didn’t I see this before? Perhaps because it is just what it is, propaganda to influence people to accept homosexuality.
“According to Megan Townsend, GLAAD's senior strategist for entertainment, this kind of real-world impact is the exact reason LGBTQ representation is so important.”
But she is advocating for representation of people whose identity is a twisted, deviant sexual preference. Who suffer from a psychological and emotional depravity that is both against human nature and is medically harmful to those who practice it. But that is counterproductive to society. And again, why isn’t representation of Sound biblical Christians or ex-homosexuals “so important”? The homosexual and pro-homosexual TV and movie executives don’t seem to think they matter because they are not really interested in being honest or fair. They are only interested in promoting homosexuality as something good and normal, and any TV network that complies with this goal will be handsomely rewarded by GLAAD and their some 4 million dollar budget. She states:
“(GLAAD recognized Supergirl with a nomination for outstanding drama series in its annual media awards.)”
Imagine that, a well founded homosexual organization whose function is to monitor media representation of homosexuals (Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and reward those who do good by them, and punish those who fail to comply.
And you wonder why so much of TV and the movies has changed in favor of promoting homosexuality? In addition to homosexuals moving up the ranks and taking over ruling roles in the networks, or buying them with the massive amounts of money they now control through the movie industry, the cosmetics and modeling industries, and what they have been able to grab by strategically taking control of the politics in their states, they are also relentless in their pressuring networks that they do not yet control with money and threats of protest. They do this as a priority because they understand to power of media. As she admits:
"Entertainment media has always had a reciprocal relationship with society. It both reflects social realities of our culture while also shaping them," she explains over the phone.”
Yes indeed, and now a days there is far more “shaping” of our society being done by entertainment than “reflecting” it. The question is why are we Christians allowing it with so little effort to counter it?
Notice her next revealing comment:
"So if you don't know an LGBTQ person in real life and you're watching TV and you see us, and get to know us and care about us, that breeds understanding—and acceptance comes from that understanding. There can't be any of that understanding without that visibility."
Translation: If you don’t personally know a homosexual, watching TV that we control will help you to learn to understand and care about us, and if you watch long enough without knowing that we are brainwashing you to love us, you will began to accept our homosexuality as good and normal. We could never accomplish this without our control of your TV.
She then gives a startling but under stated statistic about the homosexual representation on TV in 2016:
“In GLAAD's 2016 "Where We Are on TV" report, the media organization identified that 4.8% of regular characters on broadcast scripted primetime programming were gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer. Townsend says that's a record high, but notes that there's still work to be done.”
This is typical of their under reporting of the progress they have actually made. They don’t want to spoil things by giving too accurate a report on just how much they have accomplished. That would cause alarm and rally the sleeping Christians and other moral people to rally to slow them down.
But Dr. Michael Brown in his well-documented book “A Queer Thing Happened to America”, give a different perspective on the percentage of homosexuality being exposed in TV. In chapter 5 of his book partly titled …”Hollywood’s Celebration of Queer”, under the section “IS YOUR TV SCREEN TURNING PINK”
"That while homosexuals make up only 3% of the population, their representation on TV is high. Robert Knight observed on October 8, 2008 “if you’re noticing your TV screen turning pink, it’s not just your imagination.”
Dr. Brown goes on to post a GLAAD statistic:
“That the new broadcast TV season included 22 series featuring a total of 35 openly “gay” characters”. These series are on ABC, NBC, CBS< Fox and the CW networks. The total figure does not include show on cable, like The L word on Showtime, or MTV’s all-gay LOGO network.”
[A side note: As an example of the level of disrespect the homosexual activists have towards Christianity, on their homosexual network “logo”
They had the nerve to name one of their “gay” dramas “Noah’s Ark”. This was to draw unsuspecting Christians into watching the vulgar drama.]
Astonishingly he reported that HBO dedicated a whopping 42% of its programming hours to homosexuals, that is more than 10 times the amount of homosexuals in America. And that was back in 2008. Do you honestly believe that number has gone down since then? No, understanding and representation is not their goal, indoctrination is. They are determined to force homosexuality on society and they are using your TV to help them do it.
She continues quoting Megan Townsend, GLAAD's senior strategist for entertainment:
"It's important that LGBT characters aren't just present on screen," she says. "It's important that they're crafted with care, thought, and substance, and that they're nuanced and fully realized characters and not just a shallow stereotype."
If that is so, then why are there no Christian characters on TV and in movies that are crafted with care, thought, and substance, and that are nuanced and fully realized characters and not just a shallow stereotype? And if they argue that Christians are a much larger part of the population than homosexuals are, what about ex-homosexuals? They are a smaller group than homosexuals are they not? Yet homosexuals treat them like they do not exist or they ostracize them.
Tang continues with the usual attempt to generate compassion for the homosexual character and give the executive producer Andrew Kreisberg a chance to spin the whole thing as something that was not actually planned. I would not buy that if I were you. But of greater interest to me is the manner in which Tang presents the coming out segment of the episode:
“Alex—and her coming-out story—is certainly no shallow stereotype. When she meets Maggie early in the show's second season, there's clear chemistry, although she doesn't yet understand it. Her initial ruffled feathers becomes a puppyish enthusiasm that Maggie reads as romantic interest—which she quickly tries to defuse. Alex, who hadn't understood the source of her emotions, is confused and denies that she's interested in women. What follows is the nuanced, remarkably moving, and believable reckoning of an adult woman coming to terms with something she had never consciously known about herself, and the consequences that has for all the other elements of her life.”
This is classic “target the heterosexual and tell them that they are gay and don’t yet know it” propaganda. Another common accusation/argument that homosexuals level against those of us who openly object to and reject their deviance. But this kind of TV programming is to place the thought in the heterosexual mind that “I could be homosexual and not know it”. “Is that what I am feeling about my best or dear friend?”. Viewers should be aware that the programs they are watching on TV generally has attached to them, a producer with an agenda to influence you. And you should be concerned about just what they are trying to influence you to think or do. Actors should also be concerned about what their bosses are trying to influence them with when they give them a script. Tang reports that the actor that plays Alex, Chyler Leigh was influenced by the response of homosexual fans to the homosexual character “Alex” she was playing. Tang states:
“One person who has been notably affected by fans' response to Alex's story is the actress who plays her. Leigh's empathetic, vulnerable performance brings the story to life—so persuasively that fans have asked her whether she's gay, she jokes over the phone. From embracing the couple's hashtag on Twitter to responding to the many messages she's received from fans since Alex came out, Leigh has been fully supportive of the fandom: "It's been incredibly impactful to watch [Alex's growth] be so relatable to so many people." The actress actually provided one of the early signal boosts for Swangin's Twitter story, because she was so moved "that this young lady could have such a tremendous impact just by being herself, and just by being kind."
Needless to say, Leigh was surprised to learn that the character she'd already played for a full season would be coming out as a lesbian: "I was…I wouldn't say terrified, but I felt an enormous amount of pressure that I put on myself. It's a really big deal to me personally, because I knew that there was so little representation of it on television."
It's a testament to Supergirl's treatment of the story that it resonates so strongly with viewers. "I've actually gotten quite a few messages and stories that mirror very much what Alex's situation was," Leigh says. Fans in their thirties and forties have told her that watching her helped them "put the pieces of the puzzle together," to the extent that Alex's dialogue has given them a model of what to say and expect in their own coming out. "The lightbulb moments that people have shared with me have been tremendous." The woman behind Alex feels that her responsibility towards the role doesn't stop at acting; she wants to help build community around the character and support for those fans: "If I have a reach of a platform of hundreds of thousands of people, I would be doing a disservice to myself and to people in our position to not reach out."
So there you have it, homosexuals are the people who need to be given affirmation by TV programming and actors will be benefited by the moving feedback that they will get from their homosexual fans. It’s all about love and caring and feeling for others, don’t you see? There is nothing to be said about those poor unfortunate people suffering from the realization that their same sex attraction is not a good thing, that it is a sin and it is not natural. That person is a fool and homosexuals have no time for such foolishness unless they will allow them to convince them that they are fine and there is nothing wrong with their same sex desires.
There will be no mention of the many heterosexual youths who have no interest in being homosexual, and who’s live may be effected by watching such homosexual affirming programming on TV. There was not even a courtesy given to the parents of a pre broadcast warning before the episode that the homosexual content may not be suitable for young children. Because their goal is to influence not protect.
Their only interest of protection is directed at those homosexuals who need to be protected from those of us who would tell them the truth.
Additionally, you should notice that this is one way that the homosexual TV and movie producers hook their actors and actresses to become supporters of the homosexual agenda and develop a pro-homosexual disposition.
Tang concludes her article by saying:
“Sometimes, it's all too easy to think of pop culture representation as simply an abstract concept, or a flashy byword for woke creatives. But Supergirl reminds us that it really does matter, whether it serves as life-and-death intervention for a teen or stokes empathy in people who might otherwise never be able to look outside themselves.”
Again, their tactic, to use the threat of suicide to garner compassion for homosexuals who we fail to affirm, and to “stroke empathy” in us and make us look beyond ourselves and see the needs of homosexuals. The insinuation is that we do not feel for those homosexuals who feel that they have to commit suicide, so we must be made to feel for them. Notice also that there is no interest in hearing our concern for their rebellion, rejection of God’s will, our love for them is meaningless unless we comply with their perspective about homosexuality. And they will continue to make us the enemy for daring to approach this issue from a Biblical perspective. This is the thing that so many Christians who have been conned by their tactics seem to miss.
Tang concludes by sharing her question to homosexual store clerk Swangin a question about get this, how comics helped her with her sexuality. Tang says:
“When I ask Swangin whether comics helped her come to terms with her sexuality, she emphatically confirms it. In her case, it was the lesbian character Batwoman who lit the path. "Coming out in the Midwest is not fun," she laughs. "And I think it was finding a character who was a lesbian who could be above all this—she could be strong, she could be a hero—was just that little bit that I needed to show me that I wasn't just a victim. I wasn't this terrible burden on society." Superheroes: not as make-believe as you think.” Her article ends.
So there you have it, another masterful propaganda piece to promote the ungodly practice of homosexuality and gain sympathy and support for keeping those young people who are trapped in that life in it. It is another white wash of the act of homosexuality promoted on your TV, and they are using Comic book heroes and sheroes to do it.
Myself and others have written about the homosexuals targeting of children’s comicbooks to promote homosexuality. I grew up reading comicbooks. I was a dedicated fan of Marvel and DC and collected thousands of comic and read hundreds. I enjoyed them and learned how to read better by reading them. I also enjoyed the variety of characters even though there were far fewer heroes that looked like me.
Back then I think we African Americans only had Black Panther, Falcon, and Luke Cage.
But I never once in all my childhood looked to or depended on a comic book character or a TV cartoon to tell me who I was or what my moral values should be. And I certainly did not depend on them to explain my sexuality to me. That job was for my parents and my family. It is sad that the role that parents failed to play in their children’s lives and the many evil experiences children have at the hands of twisted adults and other children that parents fail to protect them from, is rarely factored in to the cause of young children going into homosexuality by homosexuals and activists. They are not interested in the cause, only in the freedom to embrace that sin and being able to force others to accept it as good.
And because of their deviant reluctance to hear and bow to the truth, it will indeed take superhero efforts on the part of true Christians to help the many homosexuals who are seeking help in finding their way out of the bondage of that same sex sexual attraction. This is not a job for Supergirl or Superman. It is not a job for the TV or the Movies, but it is a job that only Bible believing and truly dedicated Christians can accomplish. The question is, are we up to the challenge?
