According to Breitbart.com the Star Wars franchise is now going to implement homosexual characters into their new film…
I grew up with the original trilogy, and as a true Star Wars nerd (you know, one of those guys who reads the books) I am annoyed.
I realize that this is Hollywood, but it seems as though everyone is willing to bend and sway to the whims of the few. Exhibit A, Star Wars lesbos.
All in the name of Diversity right? They are just doing it so that they can stay in business and attract a larger audience right?
Well… Sure… It might seem that way if you have never heard of Google in your life.
Here’s the thing –
According the The Washington Post as of July 15th 2014, The CDC released a survey that exposed the actual numbers in regards to the gay percentage of the population. Take a look…
Based on the 2013 NHIS data [collected in 2013 from 34,557 adults aged 18 and over], 96.6% of adults identified as straight, 1.6% identified as gay or lesbian, and 0.7% identified as bisexual. The remaining 1.1% of adults identified as “something else” [0.2%,] stated “I don’t know the answer” [0.4%] or refused to provide an answer [0.6%].
More specifically, 1.8 percent of men self-identify as gay and 0.4 percent as bisexual, and 1.5 percent of women self-identify as lesbian and 0.9 percent as bisexual.
Basically what I am saying is that the gay population is so minuscule in comparison with the heterosexual population that I find it hard to believe that they affect anything (Economically of course), even in Hollywood, when it comes to their boycotts of certain movies for emphasis on NORMAL sexual behavior.
There are literally hundreds of surveys which show that the majority of Americans still subscribe strongly to the good old fashion conviction that generations before us had.
A perfect example of this would be abortion. The majority of Americans want stricter laws when it comes to abortion. You can look these numbers up on Gallup or any other polling site.
Yet here we are tip toeing around trying not to offend anyone.
Tonight on the O’rielly factor that pompous, pathetic excuse for a conservative was sitting down with some blondie from another Fox show talking about college kids and their dangerous behavior. Bill continuously commented on the fact that no behavior is frowned upon anymore, everything is acceptable.
Again, based on the numbers, it seems as though the majority of the population still holds strong convictions when it comes to social/cultural issues.
That being said… what the hell is going on around here?
How does a population go from roughneck hard asses, who literally died for the opportunity to play by their own set of rules, to a bunch of whining sniveling pussies in such a short period of time.
Are we really that soft that can’t even keep to ourselves. We can’t even flock together out of common feather?
I mean in the case of Star Wars, we wouldn’t even be making a statement about the superiority of heterosexuality. It’s f*cking SCI-FI!
Are we so soft that we can’t even participate in our own culture?
Or is something else going on here?
Maybe I am over estimating the public yet again! Maybe the public is so freaking soft, that they can’t even hold strong in their convictions for surveys, out of fear of being judged! Maybe the public is lying to the polls!
Or maybe it’s something else…
Maybe this is all a reflection of the judiciary system, which I am not even going to get started on tonight.
I don’t know.
In any case it’s time for your #1 Outsider here to catch some sleep.

…Really? Lesbians in Star Wars? I mean really come on!? We aren’t out here trying to criticize gays or tell them they are wrong. We are just trying to buy a ticket to a sci-fi film we can take our kids to. fml
