Nothing I said was homophobic. I said that a film about a gay relationship wasn't a gay film because of thematic elements between the character's relationships being relatable to people outside of that demographic. And of course in bringing this up for what seems to be the 5th or 6th time, you attacked me first, then you responded by being a smartass and saying I had posted an idiotic comment.
I'm amazed a few gay users believe this, but I guess I must reiterate: I don't fucking hate gay people and I'm not a homophobe. I've watched many gay/lesbians films and don't feel uncomfortable watching acts on screen and I'm not saying that films like Weekend aren't (in my opinion) gay films to bring discredit to a community I'm not part of or tarnish its legitimacy as an example of that or anything of the sort. If I believe that there are any elements of any film that remove it from any conceptions or genre affiliations, I will discuss it and evaluate on it. As I've said before, we can discuss this appropriately or you can continue to say I'm homophobic, label me with misnomers and act like a child. Your call.
First off, when you end a post telling me to "discuss this appropriately" you shouldn't say I'm acting like a child and labeling you, because that kind of cancels the whole "let's be civil and not call each other names" discussion.
Your comment was homophobic and obviously I was offended by it. I already told you why it was and you chose not to respond to that comment. We never had a civil discussion, because when I quoted you, you chose to ignore my side of things. Thus, this is why I'm not "cool" with you.
Your initial comment made it seem like you "praised" the film, because YOU as a straight male felt a connection to it even though the characters were gay. This is awesome. Great! I'm so happy that you weren't turned off by gay love and you could see it at its roots, it as love. However, in saying so, you are insinuating that movies that are more like YOU and how YOU act and what YOU can relate to, are thus "better" than typical-gay films because they are segregating from a straight audience. To me, this is an ignorant view point. Mainly because I look at it as, what about how I view straight films. I never comment on how I can't related to a straight film, because it is not something I experience. This is what the film world is, we can look at other viewpoints and takes on life and experience something different.
I honestly don't think your homophobic. I know you don't hate gay people. However, NEVER in any situation say "I'm amazed a few gay users believe this!" It's ridiculously close-minded and if I said "I can't believe it that black users think this way!" you'd understand that that sounds racist.
Thanks for actually discussing your initial post and what you meant by it. It definitely clears things up. I'm just letting you know my side and my take. I'm a very proud person and not many people here are going to stand up for any hints of homophobia, besides us gay kids.
