The director of a new film featuring gay themes and characters is blasting the movie ratings board for giving the comedy an R rating.
G.B.F., set for a Jan. 14 debut, earned the rating for “sexual references.” Director Darren Stein feels the film should be a PG-13 affair. . . .
Stein, in a previous chat with The Huffington Post, described the film as a departure from other teen features.
“G.B.F.” has a gooey emotional center . . .
“Gooey emotional center”? No, thanks, but if you don’t want your 12-year-old to see that movie, you’re a homophobe. The requirements to avoid accusations of homophobia keep increasing:
Be sure to read Mark Steyn’s excellent essay on the “tolerant” left’s intolerance of mainstream Christian beliefs, and their intolerance of the temerity that anyone might express them.
See, “The Age of Intolerance” (via Memeorandum).
And because he’s a bleedin’ idiot (and epic asshole), LGM’s Scotty Lame-ieux attacks Steyn on free speech grounds (although Steyn’s not making a free speech argument). See, “And David Duke is the New Fred Shuttlesworth!“
There are probably worse people on the planet than Professor Scott Lemieux, but none whose names immediately came to mind.

See, this is what the Left’s “homophobia” game is about: Pointing the accusatory finger, and requiring that we all join them in destroying the targeted hater, so as to validate and increase the power of the accusers. If you say, “Hey, wait a minute! I don’t think the targeted person should be destroyed,” your dissent from the gay lynch mob forms the basis of an accusation that you share the homophobic guilt of the accused target. Even silence — or a failure to shout loudly enough at the target — could be proof of your guilt, if any grounds of suspicion previously existed.
Trying to “argue” with totalitarians like Professor Scott Lemieux is a waste of time, because hate-filled radical monsters like that don’t want to persuade you, they want to destroy you.
What is necessary is to expose the fact that Professor Scott Lemieux has zero authority to accuse anyone else of moral failure.
What acts of humanitarian philanthropy does he claim as evidence of his moral authority? Does Professor Scott Lemieux have a reputation for generosity, courage and honesty or, as I strongly suspect, is he one of these selfish lying cowards who populate academia nowadays, pharisaically displaying their “progressive” politics as an ersatz substitute for actual virtue?
So while I have no specific reason to suspect that Professor Scott Lemieux is currently planning genocide, if any gay youth go missing in Albany, N.Y., the police might want to check his freezer, just to be on the safe side. He is Canadian, you know.
