I grew up watching television. I was part of the first generation that grew up watching television. Television no longer entertains me. Hollywood is corrupting our values by arousing the base natures of those who watch. The level of sex, the morals of the characters, and the overrepresentation of the LBGT community makes television unwatchable today. First, you have to be brain dead not to see the plot lines before there even executed. Second, the characters have the morals of hamsters whether male or female, so sex is in every show. It doesn’t matter if it is germane to the plot, it’s there. Sex and salaciousness has replaced drama and dialog. If we can make it raunchy enough, it will sell seems to be the mantra of modern day Hollywood. It is no wonder all the traditions of our society are disappearing. Respect for parents and elders, marriage, concern for others are some of the traditional values on the wane. Instant gratification at whosever’s expense has replaced hard work and patience. My needs are paramount regardless of who gets hurt.

As we have recently discovered the values of Hollywood are not our values. With countless sexual assault charges coming to light, I guess it’s no wonder why sex is so rampant in the movies and television shows. It appears to be also rampant in the offices and studios of Hollywood celebrities. I mean seriously you can’t even take a selfie with someone without getting groped. The attitude of entitlement in our cult of personality society has allowed these men to believe they are above any rules or societal norms. Sexual harassment like rape is not a sexual crime, it is a demonstration of power. It is powerful men taking advantage of women who are willing to subject themselves to the abuse for fame and glory. The desire for money and celebrity is so strong they are willing to allow themselves to be abused, only years later to expose the culprit. I don’t understand how we as a society continue to allow these people who show no regard for piety and modesty to influence our children and our lives. If we listened to them, we would believe half the country is gay or sleeping with their neighbor or boss. No everyone is not doing it.

The American public estimates on average that 23% of Americans are gay or lesbian, little changed from Americans’ 25% estimate in 2011, and only slightly higher than separate 2002 estimates of the gay and lesbian population. These estimates are many times higher than the 3.8% of the adult population who identified themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender in Gallup Daily tracking in the first four months of this year.Gallup.com

Why does the American public overestimate the LBGT population? Because every prime time show has at least one gay character. I am not against gay people being represented in the movies or on television, but it should be in comparison to their actual numbers. By over representing them it gives a false sense of their influence and power. Hollywood however being void of any family values doesn’t seem to care. They are willing to exploit any group or situation for their gain. People say the changes are representative of our society, but I disagree. They are manipulating our society to accept any and all deviant behavior to usher in a deprivation of our society. The fall of America won’t be from foreign attackers, it will occur through our decadent and depraved lifestyle choices in the name of freedom. Did you know schools and universities are allowing transgender people to compete in homecoming pageants? I support the rights of all individuals, but that doesn’t mean I have to accept their lifestyles as normal or a lifestyle for my grandchildren to immolate.
