'Stargate' Brings Lesbians Back To Prime Time

No bashing me today, im just reporting news.



http://www.shewired.com/Article.cfm?ID=22377


The newest installment of Stargate will be known as Stargate Universe or SGU will prominently feature the series' franchise first lesbian character. Talented, gorgeous, ER alum Ming-Na Wen will portray political attaché Camille Wray.


Afterellen.com reports that scenes they’ve previewed portray Camille and Sharon “very naturally and affectionately — talking, making dinner, and sharing a kiss.”



Discuss! As most of you know my feelings on the subject.

I dont care for the gay or lesbian part of this show, and plus dont like the overall drama instead of what SG-1 was which was Action Adventure through the Stargate. Ala Stargate SG-1!

Not as adventurous as a gay male character, but it's still something outside of the norm for the pretty conservative Stargate franchise.

Re: 'Stargate' Brings Lesbians Back To Prime Time

Leave it to Sci-Fi to recognize a stellar opportunity to revive a hungry lesbian primetime audience.
Um, is the primetime audience really hungry for lesbians?

Quiznos?

Re: 'Stargate' Brings Lesbians Back To Prime Time

The best way to have gay characters is not too are about putting them in, they should just be normal characters and we know there gay but no need to focus the spotlight on them for the sake of trying to be edgy and cool.

c'mon writers get your act together we want stories not a UPN male executive's wet dream.

Re: 'Stargate' Brings Lesbians Back To Prime Time

I'm not really surprised that the homosexual characters are hot lesbians... it is certainly the safer choice.


I don't have much faith in the SG writers to handle something like this but I'll give them props for making the effort.

Now, if they could just give a decent role to a minority character.

I wouldn't joke. There really are hate mongers out there who would express their ignorant bigotry through just such a protest.

Sad but true.

And everything was fine with this thread before you felt the need to insult people with different values than you. Good job.

In case you really did, no I wasn't being funny.

Unless you want this thread closed I would suggest dropping it now.

I suppose the bonus is that it's a gaysian and not a white person as usual.
