WWE does a lot of things that are "offensive" but really just harmless, but gays and the mentally challenged are actually made fun of everyday in hurtful ways, particularly by children (and adults with the maturity of children who insult ppl/things as "gay" or "fag" in these forums). WWE, by showing those gimmmicks, ACTUALLY increased the chance of middle schoolers the next day saying offensive and hurtful things. So, yeah, it was just offensive.

And I know both Eugene and Billy & Chuck were good guys, but that doesn't change the fact that it was silly shock value about controversial kinds of ppl. If there was a gimmick and there was just an irrelevant detail as to their being gay, it would be one thing. But to make their entire gimmick homosexuality? Even if they're good guys that's still objectifying gays and asking the audience to see them as "the gay wrestlers," rather than wrestlers who happen to be gay. Acting like homosexuality dominates every action and mannerism of a gay person is inherently offensive.
What are you rambling about? Lol. The Gay Alliance not only promoted Billy and Chuck, they consulted WWE on the story line. Nobody was being made fun of.
