    No the only that, but the closer my friends and I get to 50, the more of them I find parroting SOME of the reactionary right wing bullshit about Antifa or BLM - causes they still support, but are buying into some of the fearmongering aimed at suburban white people - that I have to then go in and course correct...

    The rightward pull is seductive, and in the same way as cults. Prey on fears and anxieties, create a new one only you can answer, lovebomb the target, Jargon it up, explain how Glorious Leader can solve the imaginary problem plaguing the target...boom. Over enough time, you gain new members. If you’re lucky enough to be born into the cult, we’ll...you’re just fucked.

    Religion is the problem here. Fundamentalist religion is 100% the primary tool used to get us here. Everything else falls into place after that.

    QFT. As George Carlin said, when it comes to bullshit stories, politicians have to stand in awe of clergymen.
    Watching television is not an activity.

    So, does anyone here watch Hallmark Christmas movies?

    Looks like the Hallmark Network is keeping their word about being more inclusive.


    Hallmark Reveals Christmas Movie Schedule for 2020

    By Philiana Ng* September 23, 2020


    Fall may have just begun, but it's never too early to start getting into the Christmas spirit! With one month left to go before Hallmark kickstarts its annual holiday programming event on Oct. 23, the network has unveiled the full movie lineup, including the complete schedule, cast lists and plot summaries for its upcoming originals.

    Even amid a pandemic, Hallmark will match last year's output of original holiday films with 40, as part of Hallmark Channel's "Countdown to Christmas" and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries' "Miracles of Christmas." ET exclusively premieres promos for three of those new films, Hallmark Channel's Jingle Bell Bride and Chateau Christmas, as well as Hallmark Movies & Mysteries' Holly & Ivy.

    Among its 40 movie premieres is The Christmas House, which will feature a main storyline about a married gay couple, played by openly gay actors Jonathan Bennett and Brad Harder, who are looking to adopt a child; a dedicated Hanukkah film, Love, Lights, Hanukkah!, about a restaurateur (Mia Kirshner) who discovers she's Jewish via a DNA test; and an increase in diverse leads. And like Lifetime (which will debut holiday movies centered on a gay couple and an Asian family), Hallmark has taken a step forward in its commitment to inclusivity within its storytelling and casting.

    Cute, I love hallmark movies! They’re so cheesy but I think that’s what we need right now

    My dads uncle came and visited us yesterday. He has always been uneasy with me being gay but he always treated me with respect so I never cared. he told me about a PSA they made his class watch in school. it was titled Boys Beware! I thought he was full of shit but he showed me on Youtube the very PSA he watched in the 50's. They showed it along with the hygiene and other PSA's of the time. I provided a link for anyone who wants to see it. It is amazing that something like this was ever made let alone shown to our kids. It kind of shows that even though there is more to be done we have come a long way.

    Watched it. Yes we have definitely come a long way from gayness being a mental sickness and all homosexuals being molesters. Most child molesters are, of course, hetero men and the victims are girls. But there isn't nearly the paranoia about that.
    This is what courage looks like.

    I remember that stupid "Boys Beware!" PSA. I saw it on YouTube for the first time a few years ago. Rolled my eyes so hard they fell out of their sockets.
