Community (The TV Show)

I get it. Community was trying to make a statement about Pride Parades and Pride Festivals and the folks who sponsor them. Yes, corporate sponsorship is motivated by greed, and the corporations funding the Pride events pander to the gay community and play to the stereotypes. Their “sponsorship” is usually paying for gogo boys to dance on floats and hand out condoms at the festivities. They aren’t showing real gay people with real gay bodies. The corporations do it in an attempt to monetize the community.

And tonight’s episode of Community would have made a great point, except that Community doesn’t have any gay characters (the Dean’s  furry-fetish isn’t necessarily a gay thing).

Enough with the pandering. Please. Write a gay story line with gay characters that isn’t crazy weird. Stop making gay people into plot points, oddities, and freaky laugh points.
