• Huh? Writer Complains: Why Isn’t Homicidal Movie Villain Gay?

    Surge Summary: (Mild Spoiler Alert); One writer gripes that It Chapter Two‘s disgusting villain was not portrayed as gay or a gay-all. Which strikes one as a weird thing to desire. 

    I’ve long believed leftism degenerates one’s reasoning ability – or, to put it more candidly: sin makes you stupid.

    How else to explain this genuinely weird development …?

    The LGBTQ agenda is uber-egomaniacal, if I can be forgiven for adding a superlative to a superlative. That, or they’re so committed to their martyr complex that every single thing is interpreted through the lens of either being pro-gay or anti-gay — literally every single thing. How else to explain a writer for the prominent LGTBQ publication Out complaining because Pennywise from the horror film It Chapter Two isn’t a “gay ally?” [John Ellis/PJ Media]

    [Mild spoiler warning.]

    Writer Rose Dommu whines in her piece that she’s “sad to announce” that “Pennywise is not gay, or even an ally”. She announces, in fact, the slaughterous clown is “anti-queer”.

    Just to be clear as to why this is so … umm … odd: the horror movie, based on the Stephen King novel, paints Pennywise as a murderous, demonized clown who tortures and eats children.

    “Imagine if any other identity group” writes Ellis,

    was upset because such a vile fictional character wasn’t identified with their cause. Imagine Christians complaining because Pennywise doesn’t quote Bible verses while terrorizing children. Imagine Muslims whining because the demonic clown doesn’t unfurl his prayer rug even once during the movie. Imagine the NRA publishing articles denouncing the filmmakers because It Chapter Two’s villain doesn’t use guns to commit his evil deeds.

    None of us can imagine any of those things because it’s utterly ridiculous for an identity group to be bothered in the least by the fact that Pennywise wasn’t connected to them. The LGBTQ community, though, apparently believes that everyone and everything, including fictional characters in horror movies, must pay homage to their cause. If so, they’re uber-egomaniacal. Or, they believe that everything not promoting the LGBTQ agenda is an attack on them. That would be a martyr complex to beat all martyr complexes.

    Then Ellis makes an even more unsettling, admittedly speculative, concession:

    Did Dommu actually commit “a Freudian slip”? Did she accidentally reveal the “LGBTQ community does prey on our children with the goal of consuming them by dragging them into an unnatural lifestyle that will destroy them”?

    Maybe Dommu is right; maybe it’s a complete failure and disgrace on the part of the makers of It Chapter Two that Pennywise was not portrayed as a member of the LBTQ community.

    As a fellow conservative I know confessed to me a while ago: after exposure to yet another LGBTQ-obsessed news story, he’d had enough and shouted out: “Gay, Gay, Gay! It’s all we ever hear about!”

    Yep. Sure seems like it, doesn’t it.
