Whenever I hang out with friends we make sure there's at least one non-straight and non-white person (not necessarily the same person) in our group so our reality can reflect that from TV.
As a result we never hang out anymore and I don't have any friends
Which is a bit weak this season IMHO.
At least they are apparently dumping "conversation street" and the tent for Season 4, to concentrate on the bits they do well - going from A to B in silly ways / vehicles / hats.

I share the extreme annoyance that the LBGTQXYZASS culture is being forced down our throats on virtually every type of media.
HOWEVER - I first observed this in British TV, such as the Dr Who spinoff, Torchwood, where the made the primary character uber-gay. Prior to that, and since then, I find that (apparently) most British couples are mixed race. The US is doing this "Me Too" movement of the second kind. Stupid shows, the ubiquitous talent contests, all have to have a somewhat flaming judge or two or three. Anyone recall, as well, "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" - as though gaudy dress-up (read that "metrosexual") is an example of good taste . . . depends upon who you're trying to attract, doesn't it? The repeated attempts at getting men to use makeup (not just money) - and shaved chests. Here's one - a real favorite of mine: runway models were flat-chested and emaciated - I guess the big name designers waned them to look a lot like like young boys . . .
Now - I don't really care who hugs who - everyone needs affection. Furthermore, if I had my druthers, if legal, I'd have a number of mates, of assorted races, as keepers - not just one-nighters. But none of this - absolutely none of this - needs to be shoved down our throats (pun intended) until, like the OP, one starts to resent it.
