Ha thanks. As an oppressed minority, you would think this group of people as a collective whole would know better than to be so vocal about their personal discriminations, especially on gay social media. Are guys really going to announce their misogyny/homophobia/transphobia (“no fems”), racial fetish (latinos ++), prejudice (no blacks sry just a preference), and white supremacism (whites only) for the sake of a convenient hook up? Do they realize their profiles read like a sign on a 1960s Birmingham drinking fountain…?
“So, Man of Steel and the new Godzilla are metaphors for the War on Terrorism, right?
That’s the moral, that sometimes innocent people have to die for the common good. Sure, Godzilla is the kind of thing that’s going to casually take down a bridge loaded with buses full of children, and Superman decides to fight Zod in the middle of a major city, but think about what the alternative is. Sometimes, the drones kill terrorists, and sometimes the drones kill children. But it’s all for the common good.
It’s sort of like how action heroes used to be alone and outgunned, and now the new PG-13 Expendables is about twenty-seven heroes hunting down one villain and some background extras. It’s a different set of core values.”—
now we’ve gone from ‘he can’t save everyone’ to ‘collateral damage’
your ‘core values’ are //horrifying//
this whole article was a whiny self-indulgent diatribe that willfully misinterpreted the complaints about man of steel, that acknowledges the critical consensus but manages to make it into a persecution complex, and that plus this comment are //really fucking telling//.
like if your defense of man of steel boils down to ‘you’re dumb’ then you’re not even engaging with the actual movie yourself, what you’re defending isn’t man of steel but that you liked it.
Man of Steel is not a metaphor for the war on terrorism -_- Superman doesn’t decide to fight Zod in metropolis it’s just where the fight takes place and he does try to take it out of the city. The complaints about this movie are so damn ridiculous it’s pathetic. Seriously pay attention to the fucking film.
