Vanity: Netflix labels some gay/lesbian movies as "Romantic" films.

Posted on 03/15/2014 8:20:24 PM PDT by Mich Patriot

I've never posted a thread before, but I thought FReepers might want this information. I just contacted Netflix to let them know that I do NOT want to see Gay / Lesbian films listed under the "Romance" category. I've been a Netflix subscriber since the early days, but this is my second dispute with them the last few months (the first was over the Sarah Palin bashing tweet from April, 2013).

I told them that I understand they may have a market for these films, but listing them under "Romance" amounts to pushing their GLBT agenda on customers, and that in doing so, they stand to lose a lot of conservative subscribers. They apologized and said they would mark my account so these films would not appear in my searches, but I insisted that they should never have defaulted these films under the "Romance" category to begin with.

I encourage other like-minded Netflix subscribers to voice your displeasure over this. I used the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page, and chose the "chat" option.

I remember years ago, some said that Brokeback Mountain was a cowboy romance.

It’s all part of mainstreaming homosexuality. It puts people in the position of being accused of being bigoted if you say anything about such classification of homosexual themed movies as simply romantic stories.

This is why I cancelled my Hulu subscription. The homo crap was pushed in your face at every turn. And I let them know that.

The most powerful way that you can complain is to cancel your subscription. Sorry if that sounds drastic, but unless you quit feeding the beast, it will just keep growing.

I was just browsing Netflix last night looking for some movies to add to my streaming list and I was a bit overwhelmed by the sudden increase in gay movies. Never noticed this before so it must be a new push. The cover images for the movies made it very clear it was a gay movie. Not to sound like a total homophobe but I really don’t want this crap pushed in my face or the face of my kids. I already cut out cable, looks like Netflix might be next on the chopping block.

Good for you. I also have Netflix but did not see any gay/lesbian movies in comedy or drama…..now some of the movies that were “mainstream” may be put in those category. Dallas Buyers Club when it is released to Netflix may end up in general drama, but specific gay or lesbian movies should not be part of the public at all.

There is no such thing a a homophobe. A phobia is an irrational fear of something. No one is afraid of homosexuals. We are just disgusted by them.

Satan is marshaling his forces in this issue. It is a perversion of God’s standard.

This is what is happening.

We need to be in prayer about this as believers in Christ.

I anticipated your suggestions to cancel my subscription, and indeed have considered it. I may still do that, but I just dumped Comcrap last fall (for similar reasons) and I’d rather not dump Netflix just yet. I live alone and don’t want to be confined to mumbling to myself in this chair just yet. :)

If they give you enough information to know that the movie is about gay people, then you know enough not to watch it. So your only objection that some people disagree with you over homosexuality.

But I think you already knew that.

“Romance” is not always an honorific, by the way. Sid & Nancy - about a couple of heroin addicts, was a romance.

Not likely, since I have no idea who Francis Underwood is. I assume it's a show featuring homosexuals? I refuse to watch such shows...never seen an episode of "Will & Grace", for example.

Unfortunately, having just finished my day at work, I was still stuck in my large corporation management PC mode. Actually I believe even using the word homophobe would get me a very quick appointment with an HR rep and possibly termination. As many phone calls and emails as I receive in my off time, my company mandated PC mode gets stuck in the on position. Sometimes it just needs a good slap and coming here can be good for that lol

Netflix doesn’t have much of a selection, and too much of what it offers isn’t very family-friendly.

Is there another option we have for movies and TV shows?

I made the same report to Netflix re their perversion. The lady to whom I was speaking/communicating agreed with me, but said there was nothing she could do about it.

I cancelled my subscription and switched to Amazon. However, Amazon similarly presents that degrading filth as mainstream.

How can it be we've degenerated that far that fast?

They know that the "leader of the free world" (barf!) is probably a homo and is clearly pushing their agenda with the help of the msm and they are going full tilt.

The love that dare not speak it's name is now the one that won't STFU.

I just hold on to my DVD collection, and that way only I can decide what is right for me and for my home. When these companies “recommend” something to you, it isn’t based on your prior selections, but rather based on what THEY want you to watch because of their agenda. Nobody has the right to have so much power over me, especially when I am giving them my hard-earned money. The best way to say no to them is to cancel, and the email you will get from them asking you to come back (before you block them for good) is proof that you are doing something effective by saying no to them.

Do what I do. Rate all the homo movies one star (hated it). Pretty soon you’ll notice they never come up in their list of suggestions for you.

You gotta watch out for them.....I was searching for SCI FI movies and ran across one that had “1313 Invaders” (or something like that). Turned out to be a soft porn Gay Boy movie with some old SCI FI actress as the lead who was the alien who was “inspecting” these guys. Total Gay wad....

The lesbian ones are even more subtle.

You can do one better. If you log into Netflix on your computer and as you pass over the movie (not clicking) you’ll see the ratings box. Underneath is a “not interested” block....I use that for EVERY homo, left wing documentary, left wing movie, and anything that has any of these people in it:

Susan Sarandon
Richard Dreyfus
Tim Robbins
Ben Affleck
Leonardo DiCaprio
Robin Williams
Ed Asner
Rosie O’Donnell
Cher
Barbara Streisand

and a host of others.

That sounds like a good idea.

I know someone who started going to yard sales and flea markets every weekend, and he amassed a collection of at least 200 DVDs. I tried it myself but still had trouble finding family-friendly movies. Still, at least then we would have better control over what comes into our homes.

I've been using Netflix streaming for years and never had a homosexual movie pushed at me. All my suggested picks are based on movies/TV shows I have watched in the past (and rated highly).

So I would have to surmise that somebody is using your account (perhaps a family member?) that is watching homosexual movies and thus that is how they are getting into your recommended queues.

Have you found a way to prevent the movies from showing up yet? I checked all my settings and verified that that my preferences was all set to never for these type of shows but I still get these movies popping up in my lists. For every movie of this type in that list, one I may have like got bumped. I can sort through the crap I don’t like but when I go out of my way to configure my settings to state my viewing preferences and they are ignored. I wish there was a button to select Never Suggest genre A, B, C.... That way anyone can restrict the suggestions they don’t want to see regardless of the type.
