Ever heard of anti-gay/anti-women’s reproductive right’s activist and real estate agent David Benham (pictured above)? Nope, me either. Thanks to a decision by HGTV you may not ever again.

 

Benham, and his twin brother Jason were in the planning stages of bringing a real estate reality show to HGTV, but in an announcement on Twitter HGTV announced that the show has been scrapped.

 

 

Perhaps that has something to do with David’s campaigning against the “homosexual agenda” and women’s reproductive rights. It’s awesome that HGTV, probably the third most gay friendly network behind LOGO and BRAVO! has decided to set a precedent that hate is not welcome on their airwaves.

 

Do you think HGTV made the right decision?
