I am writing to you to express the concern and disappointment that many of us in the public feel regarding the upcoming release of the James Cameron film, Avatar.
It has come to our attention that the central plot of Avatar revolves around a paralyzed “male” solider has an emotional and sexual relationship with what is supposed to be a “female” upright biped sentient being from the planet Pandora.
There are several concerns here:
1) Avatar may alienate bi-sexual, gay and transgender film-goers.
2) Avatar may in fact, have a pro-heterosexual message or theme
3) Is Avatar sending a message against Evolution? Science has proven that Darwinian Evolution is fact and humans are currently evolving from the male/female gender gap in Transgender state. From what we can see, Avatar fails to reflect this in its depiction of humans in the future. The film also seems to assume that intelligent beings from other worlds would also be split along male/female gender lines and not be transgender. Why?
4) Last but no least, we are also concerned about the militaristic plot elements of Avatar which could convince younger viewers that military life or the use of violence is acceptable.
We ask that the release of Avatar be delayed until these issues are resolved and we thank you for your time.
