Vince Vaughn Wants Derogatory ‘Gay’ Joke Kept In Film

There are 69 comments on the lezgetreal.com story from Oct 15, 2010, titled Vince Vaughn Wants Derogatory ‘Gay’ Joke Kept In Film. In it, lezgetreal.com reports that:

Research has actually shown that while sticks and stones may break bones, words actually do hurt you. They can cause a realignment in the brain that leads to negativity, if used in a negative fashion. Recently, Universal Studios agreed to remove the word ‘gay’ used in a derogatory fashion from the movie trail for The Dilemma’, but Vince Vaughn is hoping that the line remains in the movie.

So take some demmed responsibility yourself and shut your mouth until you know what you're tslking about. Would you say the same thing to burned out Viet Nam veterns who decide that they can't deal with the pain anymore? Holocaust survivors who killed themselves years after being freed from the camps?
First, switch to decaf so you don't sound so ridiculous and self-righteous. Secondly, Vietnamers know we are all crazy and don't get cranky if somebody uses an unathorized word. Unlike some, we generally can handle ourselves. And some do check out on their own from memories neither you nor I will never even begin to imagine. And some people, straight, non-vet and anything else, check out for their own reasons. THEY bear some responsibility for what they do, although it's so much easier for people like you to just go around blaming anybody else that suits your fancy.

As you probably know better than I, some HIV people check out on their own. Who would you like to blame? And yes, some Holocaust survivors do check out on their own. Of course it's sad and of course they shouldn't have had to experience that. But do you care at all about the individual? Or is it more importrant to you that you have somebody to blame so you can sound self-righteous and self-important?

You don't talk to me with your self-righteous bullsh!t, Golem, until YOU have some idea who you are talking to and what you are talking about.(You never will, but you'll make up some bullsh!t to satisfy your necessity to sound righteous.) And don't ever expect me or anybody else to take your silly bullsh!t serious when you tell them to shut their mouth. You have NOTHING to say about that. Do you hear me, Golem? You have NOTHING to say if you take the option to say your own bullsh!t.

Maybe when you get rational again, I'll have some respect for your intelligence. This is your cue to proclaim you don't care what I think about you... as contradicted by your above idiotic outburst. Go ahead, Golem. You can't help yourself. Your obsession with being self-righteous is stronger than you can resist.

Now take responsibility for your own hypocrisy with that crap and shut your own damned mouth.

lol I'm not against free speech, I'm against unfunny comedies. Gay jokes shouldn't be in films because they aren't funny, not because I find them offensive. It's like I was saying, Vince Vaughn isn't funny, and neither are gay jokes.
Of course they are. And yes, you are against free speech that you don't approve of.

Let's turn it around for you. Being dishonest and trying to impose your own personal opinion is against free speech. Some gay jokes are funny. Some jokes about straights are funny. Some jokes about jews are funny. Some jokes about blacks are funny. Some jokes about christians are funny. Some jokes about Republicans are funny.(No jokes about Democrats are funny, just sadly true.) You, on the other hand, are the offensive one. By your reasoning, then, you should not write posts that normal people might find offensive because you are mean-spirited and not funny, not to mention dishonest.

Now, since *I* wrote that, are you compelled to stop posting? Of course not. Since you don't like what I wrote, are you obliged to agree with it? Of course not.

Now I invite you to grow up. It's just an invitation, not a demand.

Wow, you really need to calm down. I wasn't seriously saying, "People shouldn't put gay jokes in films because I don't like them." I personally don't think the joke should be in the trailer because it's inappropriate for general audiences. But I wasn't serious about gay jokes not being in the film. People have the right to make as many gay jokes as they want. Vince Vaughn has the right to continue to make terrible movies. And I have the right to find them completely stupid.

But unlike you, I really DON'T find jokes about minorities funny. Then again, I haven't seen a movie I thought was genuinely funny in years, so whatever.

well, i'm at a loss here. i don't even know who the hell vince vaughn is or what he looks like. what's more, i don't even care. i guess that one could even say that movies aren't a really an important enough part of my life to worry about it.

I also don't care about this. The joke is even mitigated *by the way it's delivered*-- but the media left that out, and printed only the offending line. Granted, some would say "it's still bad." But I agree with "bs detector" here; people *have to put up with shit* in order to maintain freedom. I do not believe that something like this in a comedy is causing suicides; this is trickle-down.

I agree with you on this one, and laughed when you mentioned democrats.(I am not for or against either party in total.) I was disturbed that such a big deal is being made of this, although I understand WHY. The pro-gay get sick of it. It's everywhere and it's annoying. What I dislike is that the media *didn't print the entire joke in context*; the whole as delivered was barely "offensive," I would have thought, in any way. Oh, well.
