Be Gay. Get Action.

If you're Christian and you have a problem with all the raunch on network television (hey, how's ABC's "The Bachelor" and "Desperate Housewives" doing anyway?), you can complain about it until you turn blue, and your protests will be ignored.  If not mocked.

But let the L,G, T, Z, B, G ... the gay community voice a complaint about an innocuous TV show about two guys dressing up as women in order to find work, well, watch out.  That sound you hear is CBS flushing the series down the toilet as fast as it can.

This is so pathetic:
ABC ditches 'Work It' sitcom
The Associated Press

Pasadena, Calif. (AP) — ABC's "Work It" is off duty.

The network said Saturday that the sitcom about two men who dress as women to look for work is off the schedule after only two episodes aired. The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation had protested the series, saying it mocked the transgender community. [link]
Two episodes.  Homosexuals complain.  And - whoooosh! - the show is canceled.

Another good reason for me to never turn the channel to a network station.

A show starring a drug-addled, wife-beating degenerate?

No.  No problem with that.  Until he beats up a gay dude.
