There's no denying the fact that LGBT representation in popular media is lacking. Although this can be attributed to several different complex societal factors, one troubling and reoccurring symptom of this homophobia is TV and movie studios preventing the inclusion of an LGB character, despite the fact that the creators/scriptwriters specifically envision the characters as LGB. Here are 5 examples of this depressing bigotry.

Note: This only includes LGB because I don't know of studios blocking any characters from being transgender. Not saying that this hasn't happened before, just that I don't know of any examples.

1. Jillian Holtzmann from Ghostbusters (Sony)



The item that inspired this list and the most recent example. When asked directly if the main character of Holtzmann is gay, Director Paul Feig nodded and commented, "I hate to be coy about it. But when you’re dealing with the studios and that kind of thing… "

I am the boy who never finished high school because I got called a fag everyday.

I am the girl who was kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother I was a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because no one will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who held her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled night.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in a hospital because they would not let my partner of 27 years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who were the only loving family I had.

I am not one of the lucky ones, I killed myself weeks before graduating high school.

We are the couple who had the relater hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting management called on me.

I've been bisexual for quite some time now... since I was 10 years old to be exact. Generally, one would assume I was just going through a phase due to puberty and hormones, but almost 5 years have passed, and I still feel the same.
One thing I dislike about being bisexual is the possibility of being compared to the other bisexual chicks at my school...
Now, don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against other bisexuals, it's just that the bi-chicks at my school are rather... irritating. These girls are the type of people who are constantly in your face about their bisexuality, and bringing it up at random moments... plus they're extremely defensive about it, as well.
Although, as for me, I am nothing like that. I'm not ashamed of my bisexuality, but I'm not the type of person who announces it to everyone at school... or the type who flaunts it off like a Gucci purse. My sexual orientation is my own business, and I don't feel like it's important for my classmates to know.

Found this article on LiveScience.com.

"Heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual — these are terms with which most people are familiar, but they aren't the only sexual orientations that exist in today's world. Pansexual, a relatively new category of sexual identity, is characterized by physical or romantic attraction to others, regardless of their gender identity or biological sex.

Pansexuality — sometimes known as omnisexuality — is derived from the Greek prefix pan-, meaning "all." As such, pansexuals may be attracted to those of all biological sexes or gender identities — including men, women, those who don't identify with a specific sex or gender or those who are transsexual or transgender. This differentiates pansexuality from bisexuality, which denotes attraction to people of just two different sexes — male and female.

While the term "pansexual" is relatively new, its roots date back to the early 20th century and the work of famed psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, who believed that all human behavior is motivated in one way or another by the sex instinct. He was criticized by his peers for this theory, which they dubbed...

Chapter 1

I was sleeping alone at night in one of the rooms of my grandfather's huge house. It was raining and there was thunder and lighting. I tossed and turned in the covers. it was a little difficult to sleep that night, even with my sex book to keep me company, and boy was it cold! I wandered the room searching for the remote for the A/C unit, nowhere. Eventually I found myself dozing under the covers, it was probably very late.

Suddenly, I was woken up by my parents. "Louis!" they said "Louis" it's time to get up to go to school. There was melancholy in the tone of my mother's voice, it sunk my spirits. "Who the fuck is Louis?" I whispered to myself, and then I fumbled out of bed. School? I thought, school is not till September, and what about the sky? I looked out my window. Still dark and still rainy. "What about my job?" I had quit school for a bit and promised to start back in September. I was having lots of issues in high-school and one of them included a very special lady, because it only takes one to break someone's heart the way she did. I looked at the calendar next to the vanity of my crowded, dimly lighted room. "September. Louis you're...

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear two cases concerning marriage rights for same-sex couples. In one, United States v. Windsor, the court could determine whether the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) violates the constitutional rights of same-sex couples. The other, Hollingsworth v. Perry, tackles Proposition 8, California’s ban on gay marriage that voters narrowly passed in 2008.

Yahoo News asked Americans who will be affected by these cases to share their stories and perspectives. Here's a sampling of what they said.

'I can't help but hold on to a thread of hope'

In 2010, Jacob Z. Flores had two weddings. He and his husband got married first in Provincetown, Mass., and three weeks later they had a ceremony in their hometown of Victoria, Texas.

Their marriage was legal in Massachusetts. But, Flores writes, they held the second ceremony “to demonstrate to our friends and family that we were just like the other married couples they knew, whether it was legal in Texas or not."

I've discussed this subject once or twice, most notably link and then again over at link. But most notably, and most tragically to me, was when I had to deal with it link.

And that's when my heart breaks.

I have decided to write this article now because the topic has come up again over at the Glee spot, where a gay character on the show, Kurt, claimed that bisexuality was "a myth," and an excuse "that gay guys in high school use when they wanna hold hands with girls and feel like a normal person for a change." It would be one thing if this had been shot down, and they guy he said it to, who at the time was questioning his sexuality, rightfully told him he was not being very fair. But inevitably, when he decides he really is completely gay, he almost gives in, as if "Kurt was right, there is no such thing as bisexuality."

The rainbow is our symbol.Our flag.When showning it means lgbt.But what does it really mean?

The rainbow respresents our lives.Each color means something in our lives.

The bright colors represent the ups.Like our friends.They could be lgbt or they're accepting of us.Or our family accept us for who we are.The colors also represent no discrimination.That there's no bullying like verbal or physical attacks.

The dark colors represent our downs.There are very few dark colors the rainbow so downs can be rare.They represent verbal and physical attacks.Also respresent discrimination and no acceptense.And friends and family disowning you.

Bright colors could not always be in our lives as well as dark colors.The colors might change very quickly or they might change very slowly.The color might just stay at that stage for good.

These are my views and thoughts about being a straight christian, but still supporting gay rights.

I wear a cross. It's a little golden cross with a tiny ruby in the middle, being I'm born in July, and that's my birthstone. It's a girt from my mom, and I might pass it on to the next generation when I grow up. It's very special to me. I wear it all the time unless I'm swimming or bathing. I wear it in performances (I'm an actress-to-be and I play violin at school). Even when I was in a play about the ancient greek gods, I wore it under my robes. My whole family is part italian, so we are mostly catholic. We are a good family, we love each other and all of us support gay rights. I love my family.
But lately, with all of the stereotypes going around, I've been hiding my cross under my shirt. A lot of my friends are gay, lesbian or bi, and just about everyone at theatre camp old enough to know the conflict around this topic supports gay rights. I feel ashamed to wear my cross in public, because even people who don't know my sexual orientation might automatically assume "oh, you're a homophobe." I'm not! I just feel so helpless and that everything's unjust when...

Anti-LGBTs always have a source for their hatred towards LGBTs.Here are the main reasons:

1.)They read the Bible and see that it says "Homosexuality is a sin".

2.)They might have been molested,raped or/& sexually abused by a LGBT.

3.)They are in the closet LGBTs.

4.)They are afraid of LGBTs because they think they are unnatural,diesesed &/or unnatural.

5.)They were raised to hate LGBTs.

As you see, theses are easy to argrue over.Here the agruements:
1.)A bunch of things in the Bible say things are sins but they don't follow em so it proves that they are
hyprocites.Exs:Women are property,slavery is ok,you can't eat
pork,treat people nicely,God loves everyone,etc,etc.(These
aren't excact quotes from the Bible.)

2.)They think all LGBTs are rapist & molesters.Truth is not all LGBTs are rapist and molesters.Some hetrosexuals are molesters & rapist.That proves ignorance of Anti-LGBts.This is all apart of human nature.When something bad happens to someone they also blame it on someone.This is the case.I lesbian and I always have girls around me and I...

Well said Willy Wonka Well said.
-clears throat- “Eh hem. This article has some cuss words. And a lil bit of anger. Don't read if your one of those ignorant homophobes” -nods head- “That is all”

♀2:56 ok nonononononononon!!!! NO. NO ONE IS BORN GAY. being gay is a psychological problem. there is no GAY GENE ur not born gay!!! god doesn't make you gay!! ur a freakin idiot. any gay person has had something in their life that changed them. no one is born gay! being gay happens to gays throughout their life. and its up to them if they want that life. so stop accusing god because of your problems. he made us all perfect. u mess urself up. not him.

♀This world was not created for being homo. This world is wedded normaly by men and women and people that are gay make it an irratant to others who have normal relationships.

♀God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve!

♀There is no “Gay Gene” people CHOOSE to be gay! All these comments, All from ignorant STUPID people. The first comment, I saw on a FK H8 video from you tube. So I want to know, Do THEY have any SCIENTIFICAL proof that God even exists? So where do they get the facts?...

For starters... It wasn't summer school. It's computer orientation. We get our computers and learn how to use the programs on it and how to actually use the computer. It's complicated. Anyways!

Right, so I was nervous. I didn't know anyone so I sat in the back of the room. Non of my old school friends had gotten there yet. I checked in and found out who my teacher for the week was and everything and I pulled out my phone:

Me: Where r u?!
Peanut: We got stuck n traffic on the interstate! Sorry!
Me: I'm so scared! Idk anyone here!
Peanut: Chill! We got off, almost there!

I put my phone back in my bag and looked up and saw my friend Elizabeth. I ran to her and gave her a huge bear hug. "Thank gawd you here! I looked like a loner for the first ten minutes I got here!"
Elizabeth laughed at me, "Where do we check in? I thought you weren't coming this week."
"Right over there and change of plans. We won state and regionals is during the week of my class."

*READ THIS BEFORE GOING ON* okey dokey people.
This is just A STORY NOT REAL. it is intended for entertainment only. In no way possible..is the storyline legal in real life and i do not suggest breaking any laws. Again, this should never happen between a student and their teacher.


Living in a big city was difficult. Way too many people...way to many gossip and rumor spreaders. My secret life was slowly suffercating inside my closet. She was screaming "LET ME OUT IDIOT" so much my ears ached. Moving was exciting. A small town..more room to just...explore. I was hoping for a new beginning and a better surrounding.
What i got though...wasnt on my agenda.
8:30 am. Im 5 minutes late for my first period class at my new school, Al-wendon High. I shoved my bag into my locker and tried remembering where 1st class even was. "Oh crap oh crap" i muttered dropping half of my belingings onto the floor. Clack clack...clack. I knew that sound. Its that teacher walking down the hall sound. the sound of very expensive heels. i looked up. "Um...are you new?" dark brown eyes stared at me. "Uh ..yeah...i..forgot..when" i lost words.

Dear Everyone I love,
Since the day I was born, since the day I strarted school, You have been dear to me. Whether you are my loving parents, or my loving but still slightly annoying little sister. Whether you where the first one to say "Hello" to me when I started first grade, or the one to give me that extra decorated "Be my valentine" card that turned into my first crush in the 5th grade. To my 7th grade music teacher, an old family friend...and first Lesbian crush. One who had understood me and still loves me like Bfftwdcwasa (Best friends forever till we die cause we are so awesome) To friends who I have been seperated from, and ones who I just met:)
I want you all to know I love you with every inch of my soul, and without even one of you my heart would fall apart. You may know me as you shy daughter, bossy big sister, and wacked up creaative friend who loves unicorns. (Anyway)
But you don't know the daughter who is afraid to tell you she loves other girls/women, the big sister who no matter how many times your annoying I still love you, and will kick boys in the but in they hurt you...the friend who sometimes cries but wont tell you why. Because this...

So surfing through lovely YouTube, i was watching a much beloved episode of Ellen when i happened to look down at the comments.
The video was when Justin Bieber Graduated (Was bored OK?) and someone happened to comment "JB sucks, he is so Gay" and another posted "Yea, I hate him he is Gay with those earrings in his ear"
I got so irritated, Earrings are not just for girls! And just because a boy wears them, does not mean he is gay. And even if the kid WAS gay, doesnt mean he sucks just because he is Gay. I wanted to just find whoever wrote that and bash them with a smart stick. And then there was this:

gays or lesbians or bisexuals are okay? How come you dont accept pedophiles? Come on, you bigots
Dj(Name shortened for specific reasons)
So last time i checked, Being a pedofile, is kind of illigal. Raping, killing, stealing from banks is illigal. Being GAY, LESBIAN, or BISEXUAL isnt illigal. So is this guy really telling me that raping little children is more innocent then a man loving another man?

'What war?' May you ask? Well let me explain. In the question and answer section of this club there was a question that regarded a man. Wait, not just a man. A pastor. So yes, Christianity has been brought up. Here is the question: People...were agreeing with this man. Does the thought of this actually happening scare you at all? In the description was this: I was horrified when I saw it. What would you do if they actually went through with this? How would you react? Would you run or rebel? How would you feel if people agreed with this and made it happen?

So yeah, think about that if you haven't seen the question. Actually, go check it out, here's the link just to make it easier for you (link). And answer it too. Yes I am getting your question more views Roxas1314.

I met this girl maybe a month before Valentines Day and I always talked to her. Everyday. About almost everything. She was everything I looked forward to when I got home from school or soccer practice. Then I began to realize I was falling for her. And I guess it was my first experience with feeling real love for someone. My heart literally ached for her. Meanwhile, I had another friend that I had known longer. We were pretty tight. She was a lesbian also but I saw her as a sister. We were all talking and such about things and I was very well aware of the fact that the girl I liked had a boyfriend. She was supposedly bisexual. Well one day we were talking and I sudden slipped, "I like you." All I could think to myself was Omg, I really can't believe I just said that. What is she going to say that? Holy crap, I am such a screw up. So then she pulled me into another room and I immediately started saying how sorry I was. And she said, "You know I have a boyfriend right?" And I said, "Yeah, main reason why I'm freaking out now. I really shouldn't have said that." She paused, "No it's okay, because I like you to." So I'm thinking, Thank GOD! Wait....she likes me? After, my...

So if you really know me in here you have most llikely heard of me talk about my teacher who i absouletly adore and love because she is my role model. Well about 4 weeks ago me and her where in a tutoring session after school and we moved into her office. i just happened to look up at her and she was looking down at some papers, and i noticed how extremly attracted i was to her. she noticed me looking and i just ended up blushing and looking away. that night i thought about her, so much i had a dream about her too. i woke up the next day and just blew it off, because i hardly ever fall for someone in rl.
but when i got to school, i suddenly got nervous and she invaded my head so much she could have been running out my ears. i felt butterflies and my heart refusing to beat when i walked toward her class. when i saw her i couldnt breath at all and just tried to look away and ignore her. i was like this with her for about 2 weeks. sunday rolled around and i got a call from her. she asked if i was doing ok and if she could talk with me the next day at school. i gave in and said yes, although it was a huge mistake.

I love her deeply, though she cant see it...my knees falling out beneath me.
a gentle smile, whitch drives me wild, for whitch i cant control it.
a laugh like honey, a wink of play.
mysterious as the night, bright as day.
i hide from her, though shes always there..how badly do i want to run my fingers through her hair.
i need her warmth, to hold me close, and yet shes so far away.
a tender kiss, on soft sweet woman lips.
a great dear friend, until the end, she loves me as i love her. but knowing we can never be, unless if i grow older.

*OK i suck at poetry so dont be all like "HEY..u suck" people ik i suck. but this is how i feel sometimes being in love with someone i cant be with. this was written for my amazing friend, one who i love more then she will ever know, i love you very much MEE:)--and no not mee as in me, myself...those is my code name for my love.



any other poets out there? id really lke to read a nice love poem, doesnt have to be all rymey or even about someone in real life you can just write it or maybe..dedicate it to someone you love but could never recive it back.

Im lesbian. I dont like bullying or gay bashin or desremination.
But when we say "Your an idiot" or "Your a disgrace cause you hate homosexuals" ...how is that helping us? People. If they dont like us, thats their choice. we cant make everybody love us because we love us.
If we are gay/lesbian/bi/trans..thats who we are. we know who we like and dislike and so does some straight person who isnt a fan of same sex couples. big fricken woop...theres gay people who think being straight is weird??
But that doesnt give them the right to ban us gays from doing what straights do, or bullying gays, taking away our rights. But all im saying is...if you dont want this to become worse...dont join them in what they do by continuing the hate cycle. let them think what they want and worry about your life. You like gays, im with ya. dont like gays, hey your opinion if they cant force us to stop fighting for what we belive them dont start thinking you can stop them from what they belive in. we are all different.

I am 99% sure I was born gay.

I behaved in a masculine matter as a toddler and distinctly remembering having a crush on a female cartoon character without being aware of it because I didn't even know what love felt like as a young child. Throughout my years, I have not been interested in forming a relationship with neither a boy or girl and rather kept to myself. As an experiment done out of boredom I fantasied about males but ended up saying "meh". Naturally I thought it was merely because romance wasn't my thing. But I can to a conclusion after noticing that the males I fantasied about were very feminine without me even imagining them that way. Due to being scared to think too much into the subject I just strayed away from it until I got too curious. Turns out I was actually a lesbian.

I have been in the closet for years without telling a single person (Not including you guys). It is very aggravating that some lesbians are just faking it for shits and giggles which makes society come to the conclusion that there are only straight and bisexual women. You guys are probably familiar with how annoying it is to be nailed to a label so you know how I feel. To...

He walked out into school and could feel the eyes of hatred piercing his soul. He wanted to run and hide; but he held his ground and kept walking. He had to get to class; he had to survive the day. And then he would be free.

It was the day of the grade twelve graduation. He had opened up about being gay the day before when his boyfriend had proposed to him; but his so-called "friends" all treated the couple like shit afterwards. So now he walked in the halls alone; his fiance in the hospital; suffering from the painful blows from his peers.

He stepped into the classroom and his teacher pulled him aside so he could get ready for his graduation. As they went through the gowns; the teacher looked in his eyes.

"What's wrong?" he asked his student.

"Everyone hates me," he sniffled; trying to get the image of his hurt lover out of his head. "Because I'm not like them."

"Not like them?" The teacher frowned. "How so?"

Age 5: ditched stacy tyler’s tea party to play in mud and dirt with neighbourhood boys.

Age:8 stuffed easter dress (withpink ruffles) down toliet ,to instead wear baggy kaki shorts with bart simpson t-shirt.

Homophobia is SO Gay. So many people use “Gay” as an insult. LGBT’s are different, and most strait people can’t understand that. Ignoramus’ fear what they can’t explain. So, some people shun and fear: Lesbian’s Gay’s Bisexuals, Transgender’s, and Transvestite’s because their different, right? Like some people are scared of sounds outside of their windows because they don’t know what it is: they can’t explain it. Its unnatural right? Wrong. The Bible goes against Gays, so a lot of people must think their doing the right thing when they alienate them. The Bible is...well, I have nothing against it, but I don’t think it’s correct in that specific area. They said Jesus loved us dearly, and died for our sins, that he’s our protector and savior. Even back then, there had to be some Gays, so Jesus must have died for them too. Therefore, Jesus must love everyone. Bi people love every one too, :] just like Jesus. And there’s nothing wrong with loving everyone. Adult, teenagers, and even kids commit suicide because of the hate others express toward them, and I think it’s terrible. It’s just like bullying, or racism, because they all hurt people. Believe it...
