So I have to be consulted on – well – everything!
Yes, me, Will Rhodes is a minority – I am an Englishman in Canada. That is quite a small part of the Canadian population. In Canada they don’t give a frig that I am a minority because I adapt to the Canadian way of life – which is pretty cool I may add.
Now, what I am waffling on about is how a set of people can take a film and make it into a big political fallout zone.
I call Republicans morons, retards and just about any other name I can think of because, to me, they ARE mentally deficient. My opinion no? They can, and DO call me the same – am I offended? Erm…nope!
So what is the problem with the people who protest about the use of a word in a film and that word being retard?
Personally I can’t see what the problem is – it is, after all, a film. Yes there are certain words that shouldn’t be used? IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE CONTEXT!
That is how I feel. It’s the context that a word is used.
The N-word – and we all know what that word means should be used in certain films. You cannot depict Southern America race hate film without using the word – that is the point. In everyday life – the REAL world, not that celluloid world we are watching – where a story is being told – whether factual or fictional is different – and we know that. So why are these protesters so upset that a film, which is a comedy, uses retard all of 15 times?
It has nothing at all to do with people with mental problems. IF people HAVE mental or intellectual problems the vast majority of us DON’T call them retards!
Grow the feck up! Political Correctness is killing society!
