Default Re: Sexism, Racism, Jingoism and Homophobia- That's entertainment!

If you watch Transformers and come away with the idea that you need to be racist, sexist, and homophobic, then you're an idiot.

I'm also going to say that the only thing in the first post that I find moderately well thought out is the "But it's all so FUNNY! Right? So if you don't like it, you're just too uptight!" Stating the most common and truthful argument against your points within your argument and then denouncing it as belaying actual discussion, while at the same time not addressing it at all, makes it seem unimportant and (most importantly) causes some to subconsciously avoid using it.

As for the thread title, "Sexism, Racism, Jingoism and Homophobia- That's entertainment!" That is incorrect. Those things are not entertainment. However, if you really look, you'll find them just about anywhere.
