I would like to thank you for your defense of Gays and Lesbians
throughout the world.
That said, I need to take exception with your letter to Kevin Smith
regarding the Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back movie set to come out
later this month. Anyone familiar with his films would know that the
criticisms set forth by you in your letter are preposterous. I think you
are doing a disservice to your members by averring such criticism.
Let them see the movie and decide for themselves. Why, in an age
when you are trying to foster brotherhood, you must find a way to
divide is beyond me. If this makes me a homophobe, then I guess
your standards are not where they should be. Maybe if kevin was gay
that would make things all right in your eyes. I hardly think that Ellen
DeGeneres would have received this treatment if she was to poke fun
at lesbianism.
Kevin is a controversial producer only because people cannot
accept the humor in his films. I am interested in what it feels like to
get into bed on this issues with true homophobes why decry the fact
that he portrays gays and lesbians as equals. Interesting.
My last point is that in your effort to criticize Kevin's work, you have
created the hype necessary for Kevin to have a great opening
weekend, and for that I must thank you.
