If you follow me on Twitter (AND YOU SHOULD) I am having a major malfunction over the fucking Hallmark Channel. As some of you know, I spend my nights around the holidays watching sappy formulaic movies on Hallmark. Shut up. I’m old and it’s a good thing to keep on the TV while I sleep because everyone falls in love and gets married and lives happily ever after.
But I kind of lost my mind on Twitter last night. You see The Hallmark Channel refused to air the following ad.
.@hallmarkchannel’s decision to remove LGBTQ families in such a blatant way is discriminatory and especially hypocritical coming from a network that claims to present family programming and also recently stated they are ‘open’ to LGBTQ holiday movies. https://t.co/7S8tOdUnAW

I’m boycotting Hallmark and will not give them my vote by watching anything on their channel or their products this is NOT okay.
I watched parts of SNL today. And they were hysterical about this. I generally just watch the cold open and Weekend Updates. They said to the histrionic family people… “If your kids are watching Hallmark they are already gay”
Ironically, I am already watching The L Word on demand instead. Also …
I’ll watch and recap RHOA tomorrow. I’ve had a rough day. I’m exhausted. I have been day drinking. I sort of cut off the lawn kid. It’s sort of a long story that is unfit for the Internet but my friend showed up today and he is not having it. He will be here tomorrow and he will make sure that I am not in danger. Friends are good. I hope he just has a nice talk…
In the meantime, check out Free Form for all you Christmas Movie needs. Or just get caught up on six seasons of The L Word so we can chat about the reboot. There is a lot of lesbian sex which seems overly dramatic at first. But if you persevere ….it gets to be sort of superfluous. And it really is a great show. I plan to recap the reboot that has already started.
Oh and Zola has pulled their ads from the network.
I’ve been day drinking. I cannot pretend to care about Bravo TV tonight either. Tomorrow is another day… I will deal with RHOA then. Or maybe I will put up a discussion thread. I dunno.
