NO U R GAY

The "300 is a monstrous neo-conservative piece of trash that only a right-winger would like"/"300 is a brilliant piece of tell-it-like-it-is patriotism that only a left-winger would hate" debate has been raging for a while now, and since I haven't seen it and have no real interest in seeing it, it represents a fight in which I got no dog. But while tooing around for some blog entries on it for a Screengrab piece, I found this.

Now, there's lots of fun to be had at that link. The comments section takes all of five seconds to become a total suicide-inducer, and the post itself, in its high praise for a movie that's so flagrantly Islamophobic (or so says the writer; the ancient Persians, of course, weren't Muslims), is quite a lark. But the part that really grabbed my attention was the last paragraph:

Go see "300". If you don't like it you probably hate America. That, or you're gay.


If you don't like 300, you're gay.

If you don't like a gladiator movie, you're gay.

If you don't like a film that stars dozens of sweaty, half-naked, oily, muscular six-pack-sporting men wearing little more than posing pouches and wrestling with each other, you're gay.

If you don't like a picture based on the exploits of an entire culture that made homosexual pederasty part of their training for adulthood, you're gay.
