Even though I have no interest in what sounds like a rather mean-spirited version of Candid Camera, I suppose I should go see Borat now, before the inevitable flood of lawsuits results in getting it pulled from theaters and edited.
Heterosexism in action:
Joystiq posts alleged “non-gamers” reactions to the new Nintendo Wii console: “it’s faggy.”
Gay Gamer calls this what it is: a perfect example of the casual homophobia in the gaming community.
Joystiq and others defend their use of homophobic language and insist that, no, really, when we say “gay” to mean “stupid” we don’t mean it as an insult to you stupid faggots.
(Joystiq is, of course, the gaming news site with the strange, irrational anti-Wii bias so noticeable that even Penny Arcade called them out on it.)
See, I keep telling you people he’s a jerk, but no one listens to me. And he’s dead right about Spider-Man 3.
