  1. If it makes you feel better, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen made a kajillion dollars and was either about heterosexual robots at war with each other, or Megan Fox's cleavage.

  3. Nature itself has protested the opening weekend by dumping millions of tons of snow on the multiplex theaters of the eastern United States.

    Mother Nature is transgendered.

    Hey heterofascists and haters - GET OUT OF THE WAY! The future does not need you. We, the gay, are far superior to you in every way, and are the true leaders of tomorrow. If you are lucky, we will not kill you all just put you in camps to breed proud Gay babys for us, until we can grow them through patrogenesis in vats, and Gay Science being much more advanced than your Straight Science is working on it. And Avatar is poopy.

  5. The film takes place in the year 2154. Thats only 150 or so years in the future. Do you really think humans would have evolved into a transgender species by then?

  6. That's okay. It may not have opened strong, but I'm taking all my friends to see it again and again, and promoting it where ever I go. Because it's an awesome movie. So in the long run, it'll outlive your lame whino site.

  8. What she forgets to include is "in Australia". Avatar opened at #1 in the US with 73 million.

  10. This blog is increasingly starting to read like something by Jacob Reist.

  11. Dear Lara,
    You're misleading the people, just to make your cause sound right. You should include "in Australia" in the title, because that's where the article came from and that's how the film did, IN Australia. Avatar is ranked #1 in the U.S. and beats the second place film by a large margin.

    By the way, I'm all for power to the GLBT, but your protest is stupid. It is not a success, because nobody cares, not even much of the gay community is behind you.

    And don't write that "Thank you for your opinion, but I disagree" shit. I don't care for it.

  12. You claim the point of this protest is to help gain equality. All it is doing is further alienating the gay and transgender communities from the rest of society. I have homosexual friends who are some of the best people I will have ever met, and acting irrationally like this is doing a disservice to them, and your own community. Progress is not gained through protesting a film, it is gained through standing up to REAL injustice. If James Cameron had put a gay alien couple in the movie, you would be complaining "Why did the gays have to be aliens?" If it was a human couple, you would be asking "Why couldn't the gays be the cool aliens?" Your entire argument is ridiculous.

    As far as the evolution argument goes, it took billions of years for the organisms on our planet to evolve from bacteria. It took tens of thousands just for our species to evolve from from an apelike ancestor. Separation of a species into genders has been around for millions of years, and isn't going to up and disappear in the next 150 or so.

    I guess what I am trying to say is that you should pick something worth fighting over. All you are doing right now is choosing to make a ridiculous argument.

  14. Ok so I'm gay and I think this shit is so stupid!! It's a fuckin movie dumb asses!! Get the fuck over! All out community does is bitch about the simplest of things! A fuck movie!!! Get real my gay community and focus on prop 8 or something!!! Retards!!!

  15. I'm bisexual and I'm polyamourous, and all I have to say is that this is the biggest waste of time!! Why dont you people do something useful? Like raise money to fight all these laws being passed against gay marriage? Why not work to stop the possible gay genocide in Uganda?

    Misplaced values.. that is all I have to say.

  20. Please stop this? I mean honestly, what are your planned gains? I really want to know. I, as a gay, do not support you, and it honestly is just giving most of the community a bad rap for being intolerant of straight people. As people have said this is a bad allocation of resources, and to say the least is an opperation that delves into futility. If you read this, Lara you transgender person from the bay area, I want to know what you plan to gain from this. What are you plans? Take over the world one movie at a time?

  21. How do we know that the Straight Power Complex in Hollywood isn't manipulating the box office numbers? Perhaps Avatar isn't doing as well as they claim it is.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ohhh please, WTF? Avatar is not the only movie that do not show gay characters. Do you saw a gay character in The Matrix? Star Wars? I,Robot? maybe in Tron?

    I don't think so, so please stop this idiot battle and do not embarrassment your selfs people.

  24. Im Puetorrican and i don't fill inferior if my people don't show in a movie, so......, I think this "battle" is immature and child.

    I think gay people and other people just continue living there life and enjoy it and if there was no gay character in Avatar, IS OK, there was none gay character in The Matrix, Star Wars, I,Robot or Tron like the message above say.

  25. The future......is simple unknow.

    The Avatar movie I think there was no gay because is NOT about gay people, is about WAR. All war movies that i have saw, none of them have gay, why? because that is no the story or point, is simple WAR.

    So, this blog, is just a empty space that is argument about something that is not in the point.

  26. You are a stupid moron. You have a penis, so you are a boy, not a girl, and if you say that you are a gay, think again to dominate the world, none president like gay and none president are gay.

    People that are gay make the choice to speriment with them self and fail. All gay are insecure about them self.

  28. Why just gay don't die. You people alway make an issue about everything.

  29. HPL-
    How are you and your ilk "the future"? A gay couple is a biological cul-de-sac, unable to produce offspring. If everyone was gay, we would DIE as a species, forget about your science-fiction baby-in-a-test-tube fantasy. And just try herding me into a camp. I'd like to see that.

  30. Hey heterophobes and straighthaters - GET OUT OF THE WAY! The future does not need you. We, the breeders, are far superior to you in every way, and are the true leaders of tomorrow. If you are lucky, we will not kill you all just put you in camps to not breed at all, and Straight Science being much more advanced than your Gay Science is working on it. And Avatar is great!!

  31. I'm gay and I think your blog and prostest are competely rdiculous and not founded on anything. You can't pretend talking in the name of all gays when you say stupid things like that.

    I'm fighting to have the same rights and to be left alone, not to dominate straight people or to prove them wrong.

  34. THIS MOVIE IS ANTI-GAY IT DOESNT RESPECT US LIKE PERSONS IT PUTS OUR RIGHTS AWAY !!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I haven't seen the movie, but what makes you think that none of the characters WERE transgenders? Or maybe they WERE transgenders who were "sexually-confused"; so they "self-identified" themselves as actually being the same gender as their reproductive organs? Did any of the characters practice bestiality? Maybe there should be a protest about THAT, too.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm curious if you also protested other movies that , as you claim, held the same prejudice. Did you boycott star trek? Terminator salvation?

  44. I don't think you stopped anything, moron. I can't even begin to understand what the hell your protest is about because it's not even part of what the movie is touching on, so in conclusion I think you should take this site down, as its failure is as epic as the movie itself. EPIC FAIL.

  45. If gay people have children or "breed", than how is it an insult to call straight eople "breeders". Because, according to Lara herself, gay people are "breeders" themselves.

  46. Who ever is running this fringe LGBT group is an idiot. Protest a movie for its relationship orientated content, wow, sounds like someone needs to get a hobby. The worst part of this protest is the light (Or should I say shadow) you cast all LGBT people in. Your protest is the most illogical thing I have ever heard of. Buy tickits but dont go, why dont you save yourself the effort and stuff a twenty in an envelope and mail to James Cameron? Stand during the movie, um, I thought you said not to see it? Well if you want to stand for over two and a half hours, go for it, you will probably be asked to leave after 20 or so minutes, and it will not be because of your sexual orientation, but because your a jack-ass and blocking the view of the person behind you. The worst way of protesting this movie is to "bring your partner to the theater and show affection to each other". This is also reffered to as PDA, or Public Display Of Affection and it is inappropriate whatever your sexual orientation is. Here is some advice to the person(s) who thought this idea up, you will never get a positive reaction from another person or group when you forcefully and inappropriatly express your view point. Infact, you will probably make people less likely to accept it. It is stupid stunts like this that keep the LGBT group from becoming accepted in our society, and in turn, progressing in it to having equality. So, the next time "your" group wants to protest a movie for it's relationship oriented content, do yourselves (and every other person in the LGBT community, including myself) a favor and just stay home. Remember, it is stupid things like this that hold us back and keep us from being accepted.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I cant believe some of you gays honestly think you will get rid of all the straight people. Seriously, the stupidest thing Ive ever heard. If you get rid of straight people, you get rid of our population and everyone dies eventually. Oh ya, and there are many more straights than gays and we just wont go for it. Trust me.

    Oh and protesting this movie is so stupid. Thats absolutely ridiculus.

  48. I love the fact that you want to protest a movie on its "content", when you have not even seen it.

  51. I'm a multi minority (skin color aside), and I think you're insane for making a protest for this Avatar movie. TONS of movies have heterosexual themes in them. Doesn't mean it's a homophobic agenda. This is almost as extreme as some Religious Right stuff.

    Dear heterosexuals/non transgendered people reading this, these protesters don't speak for all of us, just remember that okay?

  52. Hey you stupid breeders: WE control the schools and universities and WE teach your dumb kids. And lot of them experiment with sexuality because WE wash away the hate you put in them.

  53. I'm a female in a straight relationship. I have tons of gay friends, and my roommate is in transition of changing. Even SHE thinks you're all being retarded f*ckwits for smearing the name of the gay and trans community. And I agree. everything is FINE between straights and gays, maybe not perfect but it's a LOT more accepting. . . and then you go and do something like this. You know you just probably ruined it for some gay or transgendered person out there?? Grow a brain, suck it up, and realize that:: ITS JUST A MOVIE. Oh boo. It's FICTION. i.e.- Not true. The director can do whatever the hell he feels like. So unless YOU want to fork out the millions of dollars, shut up.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wrong. It's opening day was $77,025,481 domestically and $223,180,000 internationally.
    Get your story right at least.
    Again Im gay but not stupid :/

    The movie so far has raised 301,308,992

    Oh wait, you guys can't reproduce. You're nothing more than the stupid group of chimanzees without opposable thumbs.

    This is from a straight dude who's all gay rights. Be feminine. Be masculine. Don't deny what your DNA hard coded into you because you'll just come out as a failure entirely, instead of just on the mental level.

HAHAHAHAHAHA really, why this movie? why not, say...2012? no gays in that, or any other movie with a straight theme? and simply because it didn't do so well opening weekend doesn't mean anything, its been growing increasingly popular, I've had to arrive to each showing an hour early just to get a seat!

  69. "GAYS" will NEVER be heterosexual. Born A female, You will die a female, that has been mutilated by surgery if elected. Born a male, you will die a male, that has been mutilated by surgery if elected. By the laws of "mother nature" (who doesn't give a twit about your boycott) and God (who even gives less of a twit about your silly boycott) you will not, nor cannot, ever change your gender.... "HELLO" anyone home??? ... No child will ever be born of 2 of the same gender unless helped by weird science. What is un-natural IS UN-NATURAL, it takes a male and female, duh. Most of us are just too "tolerant". I am fed up with hearing and seeing "gay" (it used to mean happy / now it means "disgustingly loud and obnoxious".) I have shucked my tolerance AND SO WILL THE MAJORITY OF STRAIGHTS after awhile. A mosquito finally gets whacked ya know. What I do in my bedroom is my business and "NORMAL" people don't care what "gay" (happy) heterosexuals or un-natural homosexuals do in their bedroom. GIVE IT A REST AND ... ZIP IT.

  70. Glad you're being so mature about this, Lara.

    And I agree with you on this; we need more movies that have lesbians in them. Lesbians that work in baby oil factories. I'd definitely "tolerate" and "respect" a movie like that, ifyaknowwhatimean! *wink wink nudge nudge*

  72. Alright everyone that's been keeping up with this blog, it's the end of the year now and I'll tell you guys the final results. Our successful protest stopped the movie from reaching #1 here in the U.S. Thanks to all of your work we made an impact. Even Mother Nature was on our side and decided to snow storm half of the country to stop people from seeing the movie. Mark my works, fellow gays, this movie is only the beginning. If our work keeps going, we will have a homosexual president in the white house in the 2012 elections.

  73. You know that LGBT rights are in good shape when they're protesting precieved discrimination in a movie instead of protesting, well you know, ACTUAL injustices.

  74. I love this thing. I hope it goes on forever, finally people who hate Avatar even more than I do. Please give me some more detailed instructions on how to ruin this movie than just yelling in the theater. we must unite to put an end to bad scifi once and for all!!

    seriously everyone should just take all the money they waste watching Avatar and watch good scifi

    like district 9 or blade runner or mad max

  75. Lara, you're a fucking idiot beyond all belief.
    The movie was great, so who honestly cares if they dont have any homosexual characters/scenes involved? Go ahead and protest almost every other movie out there then. Youre just another dumb bitch who is so insecure that she has to go out and seek attention by any means possible. I didn't protest, and nobody else i. Youre a lost cause, and thats it.
