    The funny part about that movie is that, beneath the homophobia in the movie, it's just a love story. A sad one, but still, nothing that we haven't seen in movies for decades.

    And yet for many people it was a revelation that gays could actually love, instead of just be lust-crazed sex fiends as conservative Christian leaders regularly portrayed us as in the 1970s and beyond. After all, letting gays marry would end the institution of marriage, as James Dobson regularly argued.

    To be fair, Mad Max and Road Warrior were late 1970s and early 1980s when it was still important to have plot in action movies. I say "important" rather than "present," as it still exists today. But not in the important way. Thus, Fury Road is a brilliant action movie, but has a serious lack of depth which was present in the Mad Max movie, and to a greater degree, Road Warrior. Still, Fury Road is a great action movie, and really does get at the grass is not always greener.

    Which, for a long time, kind of confused me that some people couldn't separate the link between sexuality and emotion. One of the more interesting people/situations I ran into was when I was living in Tucson, and most of my circle were international grad students at U of Arizona. One of them was an Indian guy who we all identified as gay (his clothing was a toned down version of outrageous). He was able to mask it fairly well, until somebody in my closer group wondered if he was gay. And then I saw it (as I think everybody in my smaller circle). A bit later, somebody mentioned that his dad had recently died and he was the eldest son and the dowry had already been accepted, so when he graduated, he was going to have to return to take care of the family, as the eldest male. While I never spoke to him, I felt a lot of empathy for him.

    While I could understand that this was not limited to the US, or even western countries, outside of that world it was abstract to me. This was the first time I had experienced it in real, identifiable terms as applied to a person I spoke with.

    Being publicly known does not make a person a public official. As an example, Johnny Depp was able to sue Amanda Hurd despite both being infinitely more famous than Carroll.

    No.

    Just to be clear, the purpose of the public official requirement to show not just that defamation occurred, but that it was done with actual malice, is because they wanted to protect a citizen's ability to criticize public officials without fear of the public official silencing their speech via defamation lawsuits.

    Looks like our own Texas nazis are getting the groundwork in place in before the election to get those camps ready for the chosen guests. For those who don't know, PFLAG is one of the oldest ally associations, being the Parents, Friends and Family of Lesbians and Gays.

    I thought Mad Max was terrible. It was really badly directed and the story and setting didn't make sense.

    I disagree that the plot of Road Warrior is any "deeper" than Fury Road. And I certainly really like the former.

    In their efforts to outdo each other, this time it is Missouri. Probably won't pass, this time, but it shows where we are heading when Republicans get control.


    What does "social transition" mean, you ask?



    In other words, if a teacher uses the pronouns a student prefers, they could go to jail for five years and be forced to register as a sex offender.

    This is just jaw-droppingly cruel and petty.

    They really WANT people to get hurt.
