in defense of liberal depravity

It occurred to me today, as I sat in traffic, that there might be some value in our banding together to launch a letter-writing campaign directed at the networks and their advertisers, demanding more sodomy, gay sex and the like. I’m serious about this… Would any of you be willing to participate, if I put the time and effort into pulling something together? Here’s my stab at a first draft of a letter that could be sent to advertisers:

Dear President of Procter and Gamble,

As a loyal user of Glide

    I would be onboard if you made it a point to suggest more offensive Muslim stereotypes. Every show, in my opinion, should have drug-dealing black, a lazy Hispanic, and Muslim terrorist. Every show. It should be a law. (Who knows, maybe it will be.)

    I really like the idea of an aggressive “More Sodomy, Please” campaign, but I don’t really know what the objective would be, other than pissing off the other side. It’s not like I really, really want all my entertainment options fully saturated with sodomy…. Maybe I’d better think this through a little better.

    What about a campaign for more sex and less violence? You could point out that sexual content appeals to normal, family-loving types; but that only a perverted puritan gets off on violence. You could add that you and your loved ones use Procter & Gamble products before and after sex, and prefer programming that gets you in the mood.

    Of course you are right, Mr. Skinner. More sex, less violence – that’s the way to go. (Unless the violence is between consenting adults who enjoy that type of thing, in which case, I’d say it’s probably alright.)
