"Cameron’s male/female quandry"

Ironically, Jame Cameron's Avatar reveals the fragile and divisive nature of supposed gender roles (link)

  1. This site and what you idiots are doing is stupid. I'm gay and I DO NOT agree with you at all. I watched Avatar last night and plan on seeing it again. Stop trying to get attention and making us look like fools. Fight for a real cause and against something real morons.

  2. I'm GAY too, I have not seen the movie... The WRITER wrote the script the way they WANTED too...

    Basically what you're saying is that freedom of speech is pointless

  3. This protest is just embarrassing GLBT (QZXYT or whatever letter you want to toss in) all over the world.

    Thanks for NOT helping the cause.

  10. You can whine all you want about your rights, but filmmakers have rights too. But of course, you don't seem to care about anyone but yourselves. All you're doing is making yourselves look stupid. Protest something worthwhile, like getting our soldiers out of the Middle East. Morons...

  11. Thank you for pointlessly drawing attention to your stupid publicity stunt and away from actual problems facing gay people.

    "I bought every seat in my local theater to send them a message. DOWN WITH AVATAR."

    Why down with Avatar? There are so many other films you could protest! Why Avatar? I just don't get it.

    Oh wait, I do. It's popular and you idiots (not gay people in general, just you who made the blog) want attention so you can feel like 'martyrs to the cause' when in fact every sane LGBT person doesn't want you to do this.

  12. As a fellow young transgendered person, please, please STFU. You are as embarassing as those older transsexuals that feel a need to make a spectacle of themselves.

  13. 1) Yes, men and women typically like different kinds of movies. Most boyfriends would have to beg to get their ladies to go see Ninja Assassin, just as most girls would have a rough time convincing their boyfriends to get into The Time Traveller's Wife. Congratulations.

    2) Additionally, the fact that men and women have different tastes in movies seems to run contrary to your entire point which is that gender is an arbitrary concept. Go figure.

  14. Out of all the movies.... look, this is stupid shit right here... when movies like "Milk" (the movie about the gay dude that was a senetor) straight pepole didint rise up in arms, its a movie.... like wtf! James Cameron has a vision, this is HIS movie, if he was gay, he would have put a gay thingamajigy in there somewere, but hes not. Does it make him a bad guy? No lol. As for humans "evolving" to be transgender and gay (or whatever this blog posted erlier) it's dumb :D. "Evoloution" would be like if the poler ice caps melted and we grew gills, not being gay. Being gay means you dont reproduce. Therefor are null and void,sorry its just fact. That's actual evolution for you.

  15. Speaking from a women's point of view I find no offense in this particular movie. Society as a whole right now is a lot more accepting than it was but still not satisfactory. It is unrealistic to expect every single movie and every single book to capture every single race, creed, sexual origin or culture because these things are solved trough parliment and law ultimatly. There are more construcive ways of bringing these issues to attention. Be creative. Don't ruin the movie for everyone else. it's an experience that some people would like to have regardless of it's profiling.
    I'm A WOMEN and it still looks friggen amazing to me.

    I am a young transgender person living near America in the Bay Area. I believe that diversity, tolerance and health care are basic human rights. I look forward to seeing America transformed into a progressive and rational nation that respects all peoples and declares peace, not war. leftwingandbrave@gmail.com

    THE BIGGEST EPIC FAIL OF HUMAN IDEAS IN THE EXISTENCE OF THE PLANET!

  17. Your position is that Avatar is an unreal representation of the future because there are no GBLT characters, correct?
    Where were you when the Star Trek movie came out last May? A movie abut the future with no GBLT characters, and it's set further into the future.

    I am transgendered and I think you're insane. I will not be protesting this movie.

  18. Star Trek is actually a good example because they've spent a long time hemming and hawing around issues of gays and lesbians, refusing to address the issue head-on.

    The one time they tried to address gender identity by having Riker fall in love with an androgenous being from a planet where heterosexual relationships were discouraged was subverted by the fact that they hired a female actress in the role. Even Johnathan Frakes argued against that decision.

    I'm not saying there are no examples of exclusion against the GLB or transgendered communities in science fiction, but really... pick your damn battles.

  19. Evolution is scientific fact. With the passage of time, a species will evolve and will improve biologically. With the growing dangers of climate change it is clear that the human race will become Transgender to reduce its impact on the Earth. The "male/female" divide has created too many people, too much breeding, too much social conflict, too much waste and pollution. A transgender species will reduce redundancy and provide greater efficiency.

  20. If you have a problem with the movie, DON'T WATCH THE MOVIE. Come on, seriously?

    how the hell did you come to that conclusion!!!! IDK how to respond to such an iggnorant and self motivated remark as that. How can you state these things as facts?
    Give me solid educated proof to back your outragous statements and i will take back what i have said.. but until then.... Your a complete and utter nut case!!! You have no idea on how evolution works and in all honesty i believe that you have very little intelligence at all!

    There is no way that you will boycott a 400 million dollar film with your pathetic little excuses. You are worst for the cause the then problem itself.

    Thank you for your opinion but I disagree.
