Gay, Straight or Kind of Both Actually
Lifetime, the network for gay men and apparently a few women, has mashed its demographics into what producers surely thought would be ratings gold: a show about gay men and the deluded women who date them.
Well, sort of about that. It's actually a bottom-feeding dating show that features three men and a female suitor. The twist? One is straight and single, one is straight and taken, and the other is autistic (no, wait, gay. sorry.)
Yes, the show is horrible and plays on every ridiculous stereotype. The go to move of every female contestant? Have them throw a ball. I'm not kidding.
But what really blows you away is the fact that there is virtually no difference between the gay and straight guys. They are all preternatural narcissists who pluyck and shave every hair south of their ears and wear bad armani-ish clothing. Really, who cares what genitalia they are attracted to. They are virtually the same person and their true desire is focused squarely on their own navel.
So thank you Lifetime. You have shown us that we have now moved beyond labels and really are just one gigantic mass of self-love. Big, smooth, muscular, vapid self-love.
