Spoiler Alert…but seriously people suck
So I was watching This Is Where I Leave You today, and at the end—for comedic effect—one of the characters (only to prevent a spoiler) comes out as gay and makes out with his/her significant other. WELL one old woman behind me was like “UGH! It’s everywhere!”…as if homosexuality was a thing to be dealt with. Well, first of all, the movie was about a stereotypical dysfunctional family, in which there is usually a closeted/repressed homosexual when on film. Second, she continued going on about it at the end of the film. What does it matter if somebody is gay? It is not a choice. It should not be suppressed or hidden. It is a fact of life. I understand she is elderly, but to be so obnoxious about it…it drove me mad. I know not saying anything only contributed to the matter, but the theatre was full of old people and I’d have likely been stoned for being even slightly cerebral about the matter. Regardless, I was pissed.
