"the only thing that makes him different than a straight guy trying to run for prom queen is his sexual orientation which has nothing to do with sexual identity."

How do YOU know that`s the only thing that makes him different? Maybe he DOES identify with the female gender (not sex: gender and sex are different things).

@Robswindol: I totally agree with you, but I do personally know people who use the tv as a third parent. It`s a sad reality.

@Musuko42
I didn`t say it was stupid because he was voted in. I said his reasons for running for prom queen are stupid because the only thing that makes him different than a straight guy trying to run for prom queen is his sexual orientation which has nothing to do with sexual identity.

Just enforce the law and don`t coddle, a liberal society is fine if it stays strongly conservative in the books. Responsibility and independence

That`s just stupid because a gay person does not consider themself as a member of the opposite sex."

That was who the students at the school voted for.

So...democracy is stupid, in your eyes, if the votes end up going to someone you don`t like?

...Really? Everyday Fox News amazes me with the BS they talk about.

It`s giant talking puppets singing songs. I watched it when I was little, and so did my sisters. They didn`t develop any kind of political stance based on Sesame Street and neither did I...

My kids watched Sesame Street and many other programs when they were little. They are 8,6 and 4 now so mostly those days are done. I don`t think they picked up any "political agenda" when they were little and just liked goofy songs being sung by giant puppets maybe I am wrong. But I prefer that my kids grow up to be tolerant of things that are "different". I instill in them whats important to us, and we have a conversation about what is being seen. Me and my oldest sat down and watched Milk together and he was intrigued by it, as they have been taught that blacks, whites, mexicans, gays, straight, handicapped etc.. Are all the same and should be treated the same way. We read the article about that prom queen together and he cheered :).

I don`t see a problem with a guy being voted prom queen if he put himself forward and people voted for him. That is kind of *democracy* at work - if you deny it then you`re imposing your closed minded bigotted will on the preferences of the majority.

@mcmals, I`m glad that most Americans can see the benefits of meeting somewhere in the middle, and that a shade of grey is often better than black or white. All the Americans I know are very rational. I wasn`t concerned that they thought tv would influence children as I believe it does, but not to the extent that @surprisefire seems to think (morals are pretty inherent and kids will always, and should, fight. Parents, not TV, are responsible for upbringing), what struck me was the outrage that the LIBERALS were able to get their message to children at all! They were effectively arguing for a type of communist dictatorship, with strict and hypocritical Christian values at the heart. One rule. One law. One mind. Idiots.

SurpriseFire, I hate to be the person who has to tell you this, but if your kids are getting their "morals" from ANY TV show and not from you, then you are not doing your job as a parent. Therefore, no good parent can ever blame a TV show for their children`s skewed morality. This is simply absurd.

Please understand, when I say "you", I`m not talking necessarily about YOU, but about any parent in general.

The fact that we (as a society) give television shows the opportunity to influace our kids as much as you claim it does, means that we (as a society) are not responsible enough to raise children.

It`s hard to imagine being so severely influenced by something like sesame street, but that`s because you`re older. At such a young age the mind is still growing and absorbs things like a sponge. That`s about the age where you begin to develop morals and are taught what`s right and wrong. For example, the long debated is tv influencing kids to be violent. As adults, we know when we see people fighting it`s not okay, but when kids watch a `violent` show they do display behaviors of being violent in the moment and the way the guardian reacts to the situation does affect the child`s morals. Now I don`t personally believe that watching TMNT or Thundercats is going to make a child violent because I grew up on those shows and I`m not a mass murdering sicko, but I can see what they`re getting at.
For more information look up bobo doll experiment.

you are completely right @beardofzeus the extremes for some reason have become so popular, and honestly most are people don`t take a side on most issues.....it`s just the crazies that get soooo fanatical about certain issues that the attention. But it`s just ridiculous that these people feel that tv would influence a person so much that it would change their entire outlook on life

`Liberals think that their morality is sooo superior.`What a pathetic one-sided conversation. Isn`t the whole point of airing issues and debate meant to be a two-sided thing? Am I missing the point of this show? Seems to me like America is being torn down the middle and forced to join one of two extreme sides. Not good.

Are you suggesting that we should actually listen to what the likes of FN has to say, just for the remote possibility that they might accidentally be accurate or correct?

Even if this far fetched idea of Fox News actually reporting news is true, why should I care? I`d rather watch/read less soiled media.

That`s just stupid because a gay person does not consider themself as a member of the opposite sex...I`m on the fence about transgenders though because I can understand both sides of the argument.

I agree. Yet, Fox News is the prime source of news and opinions in America (as they keep reminding us). Don`t get me wrong here by the way, the UK is no better. The best-selling newspapers there are the Sun and the Daily Mail, at the last count. Both are strictly tabloid fish-wrap.

Hey, just think, for a second, how stupid the average person is. Then think, f*ck, half the population, by defintion, is more stupid than that.

I see. Oh, it`s Fox? </brain>. I hate MSNBC as much as most liberals hate Fox, but at least I`m willing to admit that even a blind squirrel occasionally finds a nut. Why can`t you? I guess you`re too confused that there is actually a black conservative on TV, and you must therefore assume that this is fiction.

I grew up watching Sesame Street and I turned out to be a fine example of a conservative. I think it`s ok for young people to have liberal views.

"Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has no heart; and any
man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains."
The quote is often misattributed to Churchill, but it`s still a good one.

Hollywood has a liberal bias, like being anti gun. At least according to this book.

"Hollywood is anti-gun". Think about this for a second.



That Hollywood? This the Hollywood we`re talking about here?

Not that Fox doesn`t have a record of this. They went after Mr. Rogers too.

Bacon Pie:
"If you`re calling bs on this, Ben Shapiro is releasing all of the audio and video of his interviews on the internet very soon."

I`m sure he is, and I`m sure when you hear something like Thundercats, aimed at a universal audience had no guns, you`ll go "Omg it`s totally true".

This is how Breitbart managed to convince people of information we now know to be bullpoo.

Hell, *after* someone suggested that playing Metal Soundtracks backwards had satanic messages in them, people hear satanic messages. Irrespective of if they`re there or not.

Now, on the other hand if you do think that interviews are a great way of demonstrating bias, you must be a big Michael Moore fan, am I right? After all, he has those videos and audio.

Or is your goose so much better than my gander?

human_exile, are you suggesting that, had your parent`s not guided your sexuality, you may have become gay? Let me ask you this, how do you feel about muscular, sweaty, naked men? If you could see yourself making out with one, then there`s a pretty good chance you are gay. It has nothing to do with whether your parents bought you a truck or a doll.

why is everything gender neutral? maybe the reason there are so many gays today is because they`re confused because they weren`t guided by there parents. they`re bought dolls to make them feel `excepted` and to be `not told what jobs they are suppose to do` but thats a bunch of sh*t. your going to end up doing the jobs your good at, which are not gender neutral. and lets not kid ourselves, choices are good and all but do you think our (mainly mine) generation`s parents grew up constantly told that they are the same as everyone else and that it`s ok to be gay? no. and how did they turn out? well for the US, as this generation has grown up, and taken over, the US has gone to sh*t.
