Rating system queerphobic???

Online Dating

I am saddened that the reason this blog has been rated “R” is because of the frequency of the following words:

  • queer (8x)
  • gay (5x)
  • lesbian (4x)
  • pain (2x)
  • steal (1x)

I suspect there is some queerphobia inherent in the rating system. Not sure how “pain” and “steal” factor in but I’m hoping there is a good logical answer. Though I doubt it.

  1. Spouse and I recently watched This Film Is Not Yet Rated, a documentary which reveals that the film ratings board treats homosexual/queer material much more harshly than heterosexual material. Based on the information from that film, I wouldn’t be surprised if the blog ratings system, which seems to be emulating the film ratings system, does the same thing.
