From the BBC:
The BBC has commissioned a wide-ranging investigation into how lesbian, gay and bisexual people are portrayed on TV, radio and online.
The research will ask a variety of people across the country what they think about subjects such as jokes, dramatic storylines and stereotyping.
The BBC’s Tim Davie said it was “vital” for the corporation to reflect the “diverse communities” across the UK.
He added that the findings would “deepen our understanding” of viewers.
The three-part study will include audience research, an online survey and a consultation with lesbian, gay and bisexual community groups across the UK.
It is understood the BBC will also approach people who hold homophobic opinions.
And I understand perfectly that, at best, this will erase trans visibility. At worst, the Daly-Raymond-Greer-Bindel mindset will permeate the study and transsexual women will be “understood” to be gay men and transsexual men will “understood” to be lesbians.
According to The John:
Maybe we can get the Democratic party to do a similar study.
Believe it or not, I’m inclined to agree – because if the Democratic Party undertook a “wide-ranging investigation into how lesbian, gay and bisexual people are portrayed on TV, radio and online,” they’d probably screw up and accidentally produce a thorough investigation into how lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are portrayed on TV, radio and online.
