No matter what your religious or political background is, it’s hard to deny that Showtime’s sleek “The L Word”, with its “in your face” attitude and edgy themes sends a dangerous and even irresponsible message to young people: all lesbians are hot.
I mean come on, look at the above photo. They even made a 56 year-old Pam Grier look good, kinda. Do we want our young people going around thinking that all lesbians look like Jennifer Beals, Mia Kirshner or Rachel Shelley (who plays the exotic Henena back for season 4!)? What happens when they go out in the world and bump into Martina Navratilova, Rosie O’Donnell or Condoleezza Rice?
But this year they may have gone too far by adding new cast member Cybil Sheppard. Cybil Sheppard! And no, she’s not playing someone’s grandmother. Or Eleanor Roosevelt in a flashback. Moonlighting was in 1989 and back then they shot her in so much soft focus the final 2 seasons seemed like dream sequences.
Thanks for the "soft-on".
Say what you will about this show but you could do a lot worse than occasionally flipping past Showtime and seeing Jennifer Beals or Rosie Rollins naked making out with some hot chick, that being said don’t make this pastime many men enjoy, into a game of Russian Roulette!
