Melanie Morse's insight:
This article pertains to how LGBTQ actors and actresses portray how the world views/stigmatizes homosexuality. It delves into the issues of whether or not producers/directors are biased against LGBT actors and acrtresses or not. It also discusses why gay and lesbian actors and actresses either choose to come out or stay in the closet for professional reasons. Do you think a stigma still exists? If so, to what degree and how does it effect our view of certain actors/actresses? Would you view an actor's or actress' role differently if he or she came out to be gay?

Melanie Morse's insight:
This article dives right in to how we view homosexuality within sitcoms. The article begins by discussing Modern Family, which the author believes to be less groundbreaking than it has been praised for. Modern Family has not only been superceded by sitcoms with the same format (mockumentary style), but has also been superceded by content (two gay parents raising a child). The article gives more praise to shows that are less conservative and portray a more real look into homosexual life (ABC Family's The Fosters, Orange is the New Black, etc.). The article praises shows that include homosexual characters rather than those that put a complete focus on homosexuality and try too hard. The article categorizes Modern Family as quite conservative and stereotypical (flambouyantly gay man with a fear of public affection and lesbians, a very loud and stereotypical latina, etc.). What do you think of the article's arguments? Do you agree that Modern Family is less groundbreaking than it has been praised for? Do you agree that other shows are doing a better job at setting the stage for a real portrayal of homosexual life?
