Browsing for DVD’S at the library, I came upon the series, “Queer as Folk”. Queer as Folk was produced for Showtime Entertainment, developed and written by Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman. Originally based on a British series, the show was the first hour-long drama on American television to portray the lives of gay men and women.
The American version quickly became the number one show on the Showtime roster. The series was targeted at gay males but, surprisingly a large segment of viewers were straight females. (Trying to understand, like me?). The series was groundbreaking in being the first American series to show anal sex scenes, masturbation and shaved full frontal naked males.
The series follows the lives of five gay men, Brian, Justin, Michael, Emmett and Ted; a lesbian couple, Lindsay and Melanie; along with Michael’s mother Debbie, (played by Sharon Gless), and his uncle Vic, who has AIDS.
To give you an idea of what you are in for, the opening musical theme is called “Spunk” by Greek Buck.
Let me state for the record, I am not against gays in any way, shape or form. I have family and loved ones who are gay. With that said, these are my impressions.
Queer as Folk is very explicit. It was a bit shocking to see men having very perspicuous anal sex constantly. The bath house scenes were raw and urgent. The men were predatory and hovering. It reminded me of the time I visited Christopher Street in NYC with a gay friend. Trying to be invisible, I observed the behavior of gay men in various bars. The intense drive, compulsion and desperation for sex could be cut with a knife. It was very disturbing.
After my initial nausea at the extremely graphic sex scenes, I began to feel numb. Three DVD’S in, it wasn’t so shocking to see men taking it up the ass or rimming each other [licking ass]. And isn’t numbness exactly what the Illuminati controllers want us to feel? Men trolling for anonymous sex with men in a predatory fashion, living for sex and the next big conquest — no big deal, it’s normal.
I DON’T NEED AN EXCUSE TO F*CK
