"Artisan, which produced the film, said that it had "consulted with many openly gay individuals" and with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. GLAAD spokesman Scott Seomin confirmed that he had seen the movie and was not offended."

I guess it's just that they don't use the word 'fag'. Or maybe, in the context of the movie, Horatio Sanz being so repulsed by being around gay people that he has to shout in that Sanzian way of his "I'm swimming back to shore" isn't offensive.

I'm glad GLAAD finally got a sense of humor, but it seems like a strange movie for them not to be offended by if 'Strike Back' *was* offensive.
