considering Ellen is a female homosexual, she behaves a lot like a straight man.

I’ll let you in on a little secret; bad people exist across all stripes. No one race, sex, socio economic class, or any other way one could group people together via a singular quality, is free from bad peoples amongst themselves. No group has a monopoly on assholes.

Saving reputations in order to save a show in order to keep the moolah rolling in.

Sounds like a typical day in the entertainment industry.

Just because she is a bad person doesn't mean she behaves like men...
you don't know many lesbians, do you.

I hate to break it to you shorty, but real life female homosexuals are not and do not behave like the obviously straight females that pretend to be lesbians that you are familiar with in your porn videos.
I've known several and some did act a lot like men.

She harasses people behind the scenes? fire some poor asshole to make it look good.

I know ellen shouldnt matter in these uncertain times, but its another indicator that lots of money literally buys you a pass on bad behavior. which is very relevant.
Thread title
"considering Ellen is a female homosexual, she behaves a lot like a straight man."

Thread content
Three top producers of the Ellen DeGeneres Show have been fired amid allegations of misconduct and sexual harassment.
Question: Why does your thread title focus on her sexual preference when the story is about the behavior of 3 producers on a TV show produced by a subsidiary of Warner Bro's that Ellen happens to be the host of?

A spokesperson for Warner Brothers confirmed the show has "parted ways" with executive producers Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman, and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman.

Cause she’s an ugly lesbian and doesn’t look like the lesbians in his porn. About all the reason he needs...oh, and not to forget she’s one of them icky gays in the first place.

Now, not to cast aspersions upon her, but I’ve always felt she looked a lot like Alfred E. Newman, but that’s about as far as I’ve ever really thought about DeGeneres. Otherwise, who cares?

Behaving a lot like a straight man pretty much sums up Ellen's comedy. The few times of seen snippets of her show, I kept waiting for the funny that never came.

Side note: Coors ceramics has an outlet store in my fair city where they offload their overstocks and discontinued items. When we moved our office, one of my coworkers went to to the outlet store to procure coffee mugs for the new break room. She returned with several dozen "Ellen" mugs because they were only 25¢ each.

I never found her funny, even in her stand-up days. Never got the appeal, nor have I ever watched her daytime show.

Gotta love socially acceptable stereotypes for discriminating people.


NO NO - NOT that one. THAT ONE IS OFF LIMITS!

Yes, that one is okay.

Goes right back to stereotyping. It's an easy way for our minds to compartmentalize topics that maybe we don't want to address, for whatever reason, or topics that make us uncomfortable. But then we open our big mouths and it's time to address it ;)

Actually, having read the link in the OP I found it hard to figure out WTH was happening behind the scenes of the show. It was 100% generalities, a few people named. It's opaque as whipped cream. I didn't see Ellen accused of anything. I have no opinion about it all. 3 men were accused and fired. What happened? Dunno.

Guys can be dogs no matter which way the harassing is going. Years ago I got my ass slapped at work, I remember liking it. Later had a tinge of guilt because the woman's husband worked at the same company.

Based on what I saw, Ellen is simply the "talent" and had limited exposure to the inner workings of the show. Her job is to host, not run a television show.
Minions were explicitly told to not approach her and generally she didn't mingle with rank and file.

The show's producers on the other hand, the people who basically DO help run the show helped create a hostile work environment. Men and women were harassed and sounds like a had a toxic work culture. The culture included everything from sexual harassment to general dickery.

The common theme is that the dicks led to the dickery.

The thread title implies something very different.
Meanwhile. the bulk of the comments appear to be focused on general commentary about gay women when the story is about 3 guys.

Amazing the sheer amount of brain-cells you have to lack to know all the information about the multiple incidents and just come out with... It was the evil white men doing it all. White LGBTQQQQQ waman is totally innocent.

As-if the head-fucking host that commands literally everything has zero burden or expectations lol.

Just wow - the amount of stupidity and mental gymnastics you have to have to jump 50 miles to that random conclusion.

We really do need to invest more in mental institutions.

I frankly do not understand the content of this post.

but I do like your current "sheer amount of brain cells you have to lack" phrase that you have been tossing around these days. It was old before it started!
