Being flamed doesn't really concern me, so I'd like to take a moment to support your statement. It's also a good time to reassure Kevin and Scott and Vince, etc., that many of their fans support them but refuse to be drawn into the shouting matches and other verbal drama that takes place on this board when issues like this flare up.
When even a few VA people go hostile and spew at a group (the Catholic League or GLAAD) it just re-instills the notion that the majority of VA fans are primarily pimply faced juveniles who haven't formed the ability to think for themselves; this is NOT the case.
I recognize that Kevin is one of the few filmmakers who consistently has gay or lesbian characters in his films, and I appreciate that as a citizen concerned about our homophobic culture. I embrace him for challenging ideas about political correctness, and for using humor as an effective tool to get his ideas across a wide spectrum.
Hopefully after the movie comes out this issue will blow over, and the board will go back to being the usual nest of vipers instead of an anti-GLAAD billboard.
