Gay phrase in the movie " The Dilemma" issue?

Gay phrase in the movie " The Dilemma" issue?

I couldn't help but think how ridiculous this was, Ron Howard being asked to remove a line where Vince Vaughn says, ".....electric cars are gay!" at the end of a sentence. Really??? What about calling women bit**es and hoes, and African Americans, ni**as, and on and on. This is so stupid to me because there is disrespect in many films towards different kinds of people all the time! I think maybe this gay crap is just getting to overly sensitive! Don't you agree?

  • I agree. I saw him say that car is gay and I thought PC people are going to after that line.

    I always say things are gay. I don't mean I hate gay men or women has not a thing to do with them.

    so some people just get to gay about words, get over it!

  • I agree!! Get over it. So what is the appropriate name? And can you only call them Gay if you were friends?

  • I agree. Words have multiple meanings and they are evolving all the time... If it's not being used in an effort to offend, don't get offended!

  • I agree, we have become soooo PC that you can barely speak anymore!! I wish people wouldnt take things sooo seriously all the time!

  • Well, those other words you mentioned should be in movies as well. That phrase doesn't need used as a negative meaning and I think it should be removed.

  • Those other words are in movies
