LGBT Stereotyping in TV

Analyze the use of LGBT stereotypes in TV, asking whether they serve to help the LGBT community by raising awareness, or do more damage by perpetuating stereotypes. Ideas: the "Gay Best Friend", the "Butch" lesbian, etc.

  • LGBT stereotyping in anime also seems like an interesting topic to tackle. – smarrie 5 years ago

  • Definitely a good one to do. I broached that a little on my site (http://mattdoylemedia.com/2015/09/23/article-bi-visibility-day-2015-and-my-writing/) with regards to Bi Stereotyping. Popular entertainment has so much power with this I think. Anime/Manga is no different to Western entertainment in that respect. – mattdoylemedia 5 years ago

  • This is a good topic. Just like any other stereotype (i.e. the "dumb blond," "the nerd"), LGTB stereotyping can be overused and make a character seem bland. Having a character be the "gay best friend" may be a good foundation for a character, but the character must be written to have a unique personality, otherwise he or she will just be a bland character that doesn't help raise awareness for the LGTB community. – valiantreader 5 years ago

Definitely second this!

Love in Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes, to Death Note! Ouran was also one of my first… and just gets better with every rewatch. Probably also helps that I got older and finally understood a lot of the humor, hah.

Special A and Kaichou Wa Maid Sama are also cute gateway romance ones.

Bleach (while it’s getting disappointing now) is also a good starter in place of Naruto if ninjas aren’t quite your thing.

Durarara!!! is also a good one to move into perhaps after watching one of these… it’s funny, has psychological elements, and has a bit of the supernatural too. đŸ™‚

Anime for Dummies: What Starters Should Watch

The background into the way Disney markets and struggled initially is interesting! I definitely think Frozen is way more marketable in the existing Disney market by virtue of being a (while redesigned) classic Princess/action animated feature, while Big Hero 6’s foray into Marvel animated features makes it a little out of the Disney theme park’s alley…

I think Frozen’s success also lies in the fact that it was a story for girls that finally focused on the girls as the primary relationship. All past Princess movies (with the exception of Brave) had romance as a huge plot driver and the endgame; with Frozen, we finally got a focus on family and ‘girl-power’ that was led and pursued by the ladies themselves. It was refreshing to see Anna as a go-getter ready to save her sister, and when she needed saving herself, she could count on her sister rather than a man she only briefly met.

Why is Disney Overemphasizing Frozen?
