This makes me think of this programming block after 11 PM here on this liberal channel called Showcase named "Fridays Without Borders" and they'd play lots of softcore porn with substance and it was kinda like sex ed. The Canadians will know what I'm talking about @Travis Roucka @GLOOBER @SaraLaGarcia :lmao: 

Omg I use to jerk off to Latin Lover when I was like 12 and straight

tbh I’m not as in to a lot of the stuff y’all are mentioning but the Spice Girls are and will always be HBICs as well! Me and my brother had all the dolls because our parents didn’t believe in gender roles in the early 1990s, and I thank them for it!

When you come home from school and turn on the tv to be greeted to this:

And then they ended the show with this J-Pop bop:

I knew I was a homosexual right then and there.

I guess my experience is different than most here. I watched sitcoms and stuff sure, but my upbringing was mostly cartoons and especially video games.

I've never cared for movies, still don't. But I definitely grew up watching shit like Paid in Full and Set it Off. But it was a Sailor Moon, Inuyasha, Yu Yu Hakusho, PPG, Dexter, Tom & Jerry, Out of the Box, Pokémon, Rugrats, House of Mouse, Mighty Morphin, Street Fighter anime kind of childhood for me.

The sitcoms/shows I DID grow up watching were shit like Girlfriends (iconic), One on One, ANTM, Family Matters, Fresh Prince, Will and Grace (unpopular opinion: Jack is annoying as f*ck, Karen was the show, loved Grace too), Thursday Night Torriedown, Eve (nobody remembers that show :rot:), and your MTV/VH1 shit like Flavor of Love, Tila Tequila, 106, Cribs and shit.

Music? I've always been and still am open, I grew up listening to it all, Reggae, Bachata, Reggaeton, REAL rap, R&B, Pop of course, French music, Opera, etc. I will say though, when I found Cascada in like 5th grade, my life changed drastically as well.

Well I grew up in the late 90s through the 00s so we all know that was a crazy time period. 

I will say that TV especially cartoons were a STAPLE that sadly most kids past I’d say past 06-07 just can’t relate with. 

We had sketch comedy for us like All That. Kenan and Kel. The Amanda Show. We had game shows catered to us like Double Dare, Legends of the Hidden Temple. We had iconic cartoons like Hey Arnold, Rugrats, Powerpuff Girls, That’s So Raven, Lizzie Mcguire, etc. The whole Toonami lineup. Adult Swim. Cartoon Network, Disney, Nick had such powerhouse shows. The TV movies like Zenon, Kenan and Kel Two Heads are better than None, Johnny Tsunami, Smart House, The Thirteenth Year, Halloweentown. 

Wheww I’m gonna throw out The Simple Life because I’m so glad I got to witness that hilarious trainwreck and all the Reality that came after. I Love Money, Flavor of Love, I Love NY, etc. 

 

Whew! :shook:

As corny as it sounds Vegeta is and will ALWAYS be my favorite DBZ character. Growing up watching him on DBZ get his ass beat but just to get right back up and continue to push himself despite his pride helped me realize that no matter how many times someone or something tries to knock you back down you pick yourself and just grow stronger.

Desperate Housewives was my favorite show to watch with my mom when I was younger. I have always played Tekken ever since I was a wee baby, and Anna Williams has always been my favorite bitch! Anna returning after randomly being left out of Tekken 4

Paparazzi just pivotal me :shook: It was probably the moment that I became truly invested in Pop music since I was mainly listening to R&B and Rap music at the time :shook: her rise was so fun to watch

Anime, Cartoons, Degrassi The Next Generation, Gossip Girl, The O.C, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, One Tree Hill, Will & Grace & Charmed + lots of video games were pretty much my upbringing. 

The Paige storyline from Degrassi (I forget what season) where she struggled with her sexuality actually helped me to eventually come to terms with my own bisexuality, The Will and Grace characters helped a lot with that too.

I'm gonna hate myself for saying this but honestly for me Glee had a sadly big impact on my life. I was a sheltered child and it wasn't until watching that show that I even realised what being gay actually was, not to mention trans. Don't get me wrong the show itself was pretty shit but in terms of being my gateway to more LGBT stuff as a sheltered 13-14 year old it really helped me. 

yes !!

glee was such a huge part of my teen years. i stanned so hard for every character (minus blaine). before glee i only saw myself fitting into either the gay box or the straight one, despite me being attracted to multiple genders dfkgd. so after realising i'd fell for a guy i thought i was 100% gay, and i was becoming the caricature of a gay man, thinking that's what i had to be. but then i saw 2x15 where santana and brittany sung landslide and idk how but it made me realise i could be into multiple genders and not be a stereotype.

that show literally changed my life :cry:
