The Simpsons Have Helped Countless Gay Men Come Out Of The Closet, New Study Reports!

Just like Homer Simpson, we too like our beer cold, our TV loud and our homosexuals FLAMING!

Because there's nothing wrong with being gay! And that's exactly the attitude The Simpsons have been showcasing for a remarkable 24 seasons!

Now, a new study coming out of Germany is finding that the yellow-skinned, blue-collar family has helped many of their gay fans accept who they are!

Nearly 500 gay scenes were cited from the cartoon series as being "pro-gay" And according to researcher Erwin In het Panhuis, those scenes have been crucial in dispelling discrimination against homosexuality. He explained:

"[The Simpsons] treats homosexuality as something normal in a media environment which can usually be very hostile to the point of view. Homer has kissed other men on the lips more than 50 times throughout the series but despite that he's happily married to his wife."

Wowza! Talk about progressive!

The Simpsons have been fighting the good gay fight for most of if not ALL of its run on television.

In 1997, John Waters guest starred as a gay man who befriends The Simpsons. And in 2005, Homer officiates several gay weddings after their fictional yet figurative town of Springfield legalizes same-sex marriage.

    Not ALL gays are stereotypically frollicking, mincing, dancing queens like you, I hope America knows that.

    Family Guy and Seth Macfarlane are also very pro-gay and their content proves that, but you seem to want to live in a world where people are attacking the gay community instead of them standing behind us, so you only report the negative things that you can manipulate into a story. The world isn't made up of 90% hate and homophobia. It's a wonderful place where compassion rings true. I'm a gay person and don't hate straight people. Perez Hilton is the exception, not the rule. I hope people see that and their attitude toward gay people isn't based on him.

    Re: joethehobo – But what would Perez do if he can't play the victim? Odd thing is…I don't know a SINGLE gay man who would spit on him..let alone fuck him

    Homosexuality should be criminalized. Homosexuals commit crimes against God, against nature, against the Holy Bible and against the human race.
    After reading this I now know why God wrote:
    Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
    Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
    :26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    :27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    Re: Rev Donald Spitz – God wrote ALL of that?

    Interesting that YOUR God wrote that…

    But do allow me to display one of my favorite Scriptures. Since it comes from your God, I am only doing you (and Him) a favor:

    Ezekiel 23:20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.

    Hmm…to me, that sounds like one heck of a HORNY God…

    Re: Rev Donald Spitz – You are entitled to believe in whatever superstitious myths you choose, but quit trying to force them down everybody else's throat. Not everybody chooses to live in Bible times like you. Respect that!

    Ezekiel 23:20-21
    King James Version (KJV)
    20 For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses.

    So a cartoon show can make anyone say "I'm Gay!" I thought Will and Grace already made that possible.
