Americans have no idea how few gay people there are
It's noteworthy that this appears in The Atlantic. But it's surprising to me that it took a while for some commenter to pose the glaringly obvious question:
''Why is it surprising that people over estimate the percentage of the population that is gay considering the HUGE amount of media coverage that everything and anything having to do with homosexuality gets?''
Can it be that most Americans are not yet onto the fact that the media skew reality towards the left wing, 'diversity'-driven view of the world, in which minorities dominate everything, the few are The Majority, up is down, and bad is good? Can people still be that obtuse?
Then again, if you are steeped in the mass media parallel universe, or the 'inverted reality' as some call it, you actually see the world outside your door as being 'really' as it is on TV or in the alien view of Hollywood.
And does anyone here notice the parallel to another skewed idea of reality, based on media misrepresentation? I've mentioned that I occasionally ask people what the percentage of black people in our country is. They usually answer with a greatly overestimated percentage, much more than the 12-13 per cent that is the true figure.
Likewise with the Jewish numbers, given that Jews make up a single-digit percentage in our country, supposedly.
Remember a couple of years ago when television went digital, and there was a great fuss by the powers-that-be that everyone, even the poor, should have a converter box so as not to be TV-deprived? There was a reason for that. Nobody should be allowed to be outside the manipulated false reality of TV and Hollywood. The whole agenda depends on people having a distorted perception of the world outside our doors, or outside our towns and neighborhoods.
Since some of us live in 'diversity-deprived' areas, we must be fed the requisite dosage, the minimum daily requirement of 'diversity' and we must not be allowed to perceive that the world is really something other than what we see on TV or in advertising.
Meanwhile, Christians are reacting against the pro-homosexual advertising of JC Penney, which shows children with two dads.
The FReepers favor boycotts and calling JC Penney, but what do we do when all the corporations and businesses practice the same kind of advertising? How do boycotts work, in such a case? If all advertisers use such imagery, and ads such as those featured on AWM, then which businesses can we turn to?
Sad to say, there are few businesses who are not promoters of the propaganda. We seem to be surrounded, and options are few. We need to be aware of the reality, and, as much as possible, to 'tune out and turn off' the pernicious advertising. And spread the word to the unaware -- since there seem to be many who are still not-so-blissfully ignorant.
