And a secret love was so sad. I can't imagine having to be gay in the 40s, it's bad enough for us now. But, heartbreaking really
I'm watching A Secret Love right now. It's really moving, I cannot imagine being gay back then. When they showed the clip of the detective telling students, 1/3 of you will turn queer, don't think you won't be caught.

they're not? okay looks like i am not informed (i just watch their youtube stuff but never googled private stuff).
Tina Fey is really ignorant and can't take criticism. One example, when people voiced their concerns about some racial stereotypes in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, she made a kind of retaliation episode about outrage culture, which itself was pretty racist too. It's when I stopped watching the show.

Jimmy Fallon, besides not really being funny and being a terrible interviewer, legitimized Trump as a candidate, when he invited him on his show back in 2016.

Amy Schumer has been called out for racist jokes in the past and she gave some bs answer that it's just comedy. I could never go through her stand-up, so maybe she changed it but her ignorance put me off.

my favorite LGBT female character is obviously Lexa, and the Clexa relationship.

my favorite LGBT male character is Patrick from The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

okay wow i had no idea now i feel bad for worshipping them almost cause i counted them to my most favorite entertainers. on the other hand i reduced my googling about celebs and so on - takes too much time and i am not too hyped with this entire world any more. not as much as i used to anyways.

same here, my most favorite f/f ship of all time will stay Clexa

Thanks for informing I didn't know most of those things. Well in the end it kinda reinforces what I sometimes say about commedians. They're just ex-school bullies that got famous and now bully people big-style. A reason why I'm very anti-comedy for the most part and usually a rather serious person and also prefer serious people in real life.

As for tina fey now I remember how she once in an interview said that she things german sounds like a super annoying language. I quite forgot it but yes i was quite pissed and thought your squeaky american english isn't realyl that much better.

I'll have to look into them. Going by the namers only it seems many people of colour I guess. Which is good, not only for representation, but maybe they have more understanding for how it must be to be bullied simply for not looking white for example, much more than most white commedians that don't care for that at all.

I can post some videos if you'd like. Some of them also have stand-up specials on Netflix.
