tv // sg1 // scream like a girl

(no subject)

So most of you are well aware that Daniel is not my favorite SG1 character. *cough* And I absolutely couldn't stand Prometheus Unbound, which was Vala's first appearance. In the meantime, however, Vala has grown on me, and the potential of Daniel/Vala sort of... redeems Daniel as well. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that there's a really nice Daniel/Vala vid here, by abby_j, and you should go watch it.

Accurate reflections (,2933,210690,00.html)

After analyzing the race and sexual orientation of 679 characters on the U.S. television networks' fall schedules, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has concluded that the nets continue to under-represent gays and lesbians as well as people of color.

GLAAD said it analyzed 95 upcoming shows on six networks and counted only nine gay or lesbian characters on eight programs, or about 1.3 percent of the total number of characters. It said there were no transgender or bisexual scripted characters on the networks. It also said 513, or 75 percent, of the characters were white, 81 (12 percent) were African-American, 18 (3 percent) were Asian-Pacific Islander and 49 (7percent) were Hispanic.

"When you look at primetime's dismal lack of LGBT characters — combined with the continuing under-representation of people of color, gay and straight alike — it's clear that the broadcast networks have a long way to go before they accurately reflect the diversity of their audience and our society," said GLAAD President Neil G. Giuliano.

According to the U.S. Census, the population of the United States in 2005 was 75 percent white, 12 percent African-American, and 3 percent Asian-Pacific Islander. Some 35 million of the country's 281 million residents, or about 12 percent, identify themselves as being of Hispanic origin. The same census estimated the number of same-sex couples to be 1 percent.

Emphasis is mine.

Yeah. Looks totally inaccurate. Dumbass.
