Frodo- Not only you are a hypocrite, you're a homophobe. 

And that right there is exactly the queer agenda. If you disagree with their position and where they stand. Start personally attacking them. Very petty.

How is it 'personally attacking' someone to say that they hate homosexuals when their position is that they hate homosexuals?

How exactly do I 'hate' gays?  Certainly I am uncomfortable and squeemish watching gay sex scenes (as most heterosexual men generally would be -perhaps you and Pym are the exceptions), and I have serious reservations about letting gays and lesbians marry each other -that however does not equate in making me a 'homophobe' and that I 'hate' them for who they are.  I am not 'out to get them' by campaigning for gay marriage bans or for stripping them of their civil rights, and denying them their right to at least enter into civil unions.

I hardly think Frodo is the type that guys like Pym ought to be worrying about... at least for this side of the Atlantic.

They should count themselves fortunate that I am not already their enemy. 

Why?!  What have they ever done to earn your enmity? 

I'm sure your hatred comes not from them but from your intolerant culture, community, forbears, etc.  If only there were some way to feed you all to the lions.

On TV, or at the cinema?

TV - Cold Mountain. Cinema -  Can't remember. It's a long time I was at the back row kissin and a cuddlin with FREDA Tongue

Dave



Cold Mountain -I wasn't much impressed by Nicole Kidman's performance.  It's a shame Renee Zellwegger wasn't given a more prominent role -that was perhaps her best film.

They haven't because I am not their enemy -and I hope I never will be.

Just to remind everyone where Pym is coming from with his claims that I am a 'homophobe':

Brokeback Mountain -and I wish I hadn't seen it.  Must they make those gay sex scenes in that canvas tent so graphic?   Tongue

I wouldn't really call that scene that graphic to be honest. I saw it a few weeks ago with a friend and we both loved it. To be honest, the fact that it was about two gay guys didn't really bother me.

The heterosexual love scenes were more graphic than the homosexual ones by a long shot.

Well, you're talking to someone here with a shameless double standard -I was much more comfortable with the heterosexual sex scenes and had no problem whatsoever with how graphic they were.  If I had to see a scene with two people of the same sex going at it, I would prefer they be women as opposed to men..... 

Yeah, I know I'm a hypocrite.  Tongue

With standards like his, most of this forum would be classified as 'homophobes'.

Why is this being brought up again from a week ago?

Frodo my problem is this (not the bold part in your post):

Just b/c you admit you have a double standard and downplay it doesn't make it less offensive. I bet if there was a law proposed to allow only lesbians to marry you'd support it? I can understand someone being flat out homophobic, but having a double standard like this is just plain insulting.

I suppose its not your fault you feel this way, since most men find 2 women making out to be hot. It may be more about biology than bias, but its still annoying.

Because I only just found out what you said.  I hadn't really paid much if any attention to this thread until I was wandering about this forum last night.

In actuality -if it makes you feel any better- I would oppose same-sex marriages for both gays and lesbians.  Nowhere in my original comment that you alluded to did I ever say or imply that I would support one sex marrying but not the other.  Little did I expect anyone to make such an issue out of a comment I made half-jokingly, and which I did not intend to be taken too seriously. 

And I would appreciate it if you quit putting words into my mouth.

I see this thread has veered far off topic ... then again what's the movie I saw last night? Brokeback Mountain, that's what. Maybe not so far off topic, then.

Last three movies I've seen:

1) Das Leben der Anderen
2) Syriana
3) Munich


Will probably go to see "Inside Man" tomorrow... although the idea that Spike Lee makes a mainstream thriller sounds still kinda weird to me. Wink

In keeping with my Werner Herzog theme of this visit to the Bad Place I added another to my list.  Alas, the Werner Herzog portion of my local  university film series has ended, and whilst going through withdrawal I came upon, unexpectedly, a showing of Incident at Loch Ness, a 2004 mockumentary.  Mildly funny, but not much there compared to his usual films.. of course it only starred Herzog, he did not direct.

A good example for liberal Hollywood propaganda. Cheesy

Many people probably find "Syriana" both boring and too complex, because of its extremely slow pace, the almost documentary-like style, the multiple plots and storylines as well as the dozen or so different main characters (the numerous supporting characters not counted).

It isn't exactly your typical "blockbuster" action movie. You have to pay attention to everything what happens on the screen and you have to think a lot. The script for "Syriana" is from the same author who has written "Traffic" and in many ways both movies are comparable in the structure of their plots as well as their visual style. Think of it as "Traffic" with greedy oil executives and corrupt CIA officals instead of greedy drug lords and corrupt Mexican cops.

The most recent picture I watched was Good Night and Good Luck, which was excellent one of last year's best, I'd say. On TV I recently watched Room With a View (girlfriend's initiative). None of us thought it to be all that good though.

Brokeback Mountain's scene is not all that graphic. I was a little shocked but it's like a 5 second scene in a 2 hour movie. It says nothing about the film as a whole. I found it to be a little overrated but still very good. Top 5 of last year, most certainly.

And I'm glad to see that some other people here seem to enjoy quality films, as opposed to the usual thrash... Wink

Guy I know told me he'd gone and seen it with his wife and they didn't understand the plot. Smiley

The best film I've seen since the last Lord of the Rings. Very well done, thought provoking, and interesting. A monumental film.

I just yesterday saw Ice Age: The Meltdown on opening night.  It was fantastic; I highly recommend it to anyone who likes animated movies.
