Introduction
Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.

Moving on from words and semantics and talking about the real issues (whether we're talking about homophobia, racism, sexism or any other form of discrimination) is the smart thing to do and the thing that should be done, in order to actually make some progress (though the people that need to hear it are usually too stupid to be affected by reason or logic so... eh). So thumbs up for making that point.
I've seen a few rants on youtube recently (and other media) from people who seem to get prickly over the fact that some people are being offended by what they say. So basically they throw a tantrum about not being able to talk shit ("jokes" for example) without offending people. And they just completely miss the fucking point. (for example: I don't give a shit about a rich white fuck's hurt feelings over not being able to say offensive jokes anymore without some people calling him out on it - jerry seinfeld in this case - if said r.w.f. is only throwing a tantrum about losing one of his million privileges - so basically if you're being called out on your jokes... you're not funny).
Thing is, like most things, if done intelligently, people can use "offensive" words, without being offensive, even if it's not to quote or debate, but just as a joke. (Louis CK springs to mind... he says a lot of offensive stuff, and yet, he manages not to be offensive - at least the stand ups I've seen... so there's that)

At first I thought only Hannah Cranston was trying to reach new heights of stupidity. However, as the clip nears end, others join in. It's like they are trying to outdo each other. slow clap

This reminds me of that idiot mayor from a small town in Washington (I might be mistaken about the location), who recently said bullied kids need to "grow a pair". So basically tell that gay 10 y.o. who is bullied/tortured on a daily basis, to grow a pair and stop being a f** who is too easily offended. Great.
I would add, as a side note, that if it's such a great effort to not vomit offensive crap all the time, and you want the meanies who point out stuff to "grow a pair" and stop being offended, you should just embrace your inner asshole and stop pretending to have a minimum of human decency. I mean if you want to burp out homophobic, racist, sexist (and etc) jokes all the time (and then, of course, use the "I'm joking... you don't know to take a joke" mantra) and call it humor... just do it... No need to have a meltdown. Just be your shitty self and enjoy it. It's obvious there will be a lot of people who will still support you (so no need to worry about the business aspect of it).
Cheers!

Nice video, and I'm sure nice intentions overall, but some stupidity here and there. The "I knew he was gay" regarding Connor Franta, is idiotic, and plays in stereotypes and the kind of homophobia you would expect from ignorant str8 people. But eh, ignorant gay people are not something new.
I must say I'm surprised about Pano... he seemed a smart guy to me... so a few posibilities: I was wrong or he is smart but douche-y or... he had sex with Connor before Connor came out (hence the "undisclosed reasons")... oh well... guessing game and whatnot...

The fine was not because they refused to bake the cake. It was because the shitty cake bakers published the phone number and address of the lesbian couple, which resulted in all the other shitty christians flooding them with death threats and other christian love.
Disagreeing with the judge's decision is also slightly idiotic (not only from a moral pov but also from a legal one), but to each his own.

Absolutely agree with your review :)
This is to this day my favorite movie (considering I watch 1-2 hollywood movies a year nowadays, it's safe to say this is my fav movie ever :> ). Why? For the same reason you point out. It's incredibly positive and the overall feel of the movie is just... happy :)
I loved how, despite a little drama about coming out, the story itself is just a love story. It's sweet, you care for the characters almost immediately, they're likeable and yes I find them hot too :D (too bad they dissapeared from movies after this :( ).
This movies is literally a breath of fresh air even amongst gay movies, which as you pointed out are often very low budget, or very dark. And yes, there are issues that need to be pointed out (homophobia, hiv, inequality, etc), but sometimes it seems that that's all there is... gimme a fckin' happy movie once every 5 years at least ffs :P
So yeah, this is the movie I go to when I want something happy and sweet.
Cheers!

I like this logic for republican crazies. Yet when it comes to gays (whom they persecute and want to kill in some cases) all of a sudden this logic changes and the lgbt population is lower then what the surveys say :P (which is how they pull the "1-2% lgbt in general population" numbers out of their ass)

As for why people use top/bottom as labels and are incapable of acknowledging it's ridiculous, it's simple. A lot of people are stupid. It's that simple, really.
Some people are just parroting whatever nonsense was drilled into their tiny little heads since birth, rather then making an actual effort and think for themselves. It's a given "men are masculine" and "women are feminine", it's a given what exactly "feminine" and "masculine" mean... well, some people will just take that information* (the term is used loosely lol) and go with it all their life, never pausing to have an independent thought and realise how idiotic it is.
And the whole bottom shaming (as much of homophobia actually) is rooted in the notion that "the one being penetrated is inferior" (see historic references of that). That ties in with why "being effeminate" is also regarded as inferior, etc. The popular opinion is a lot of the time pure idiocy. Those ideas are perpetuated by idiots educating their idiotic children to be... idiots ^^ (rant over ." )
Cheers!
