He ain't gonna do shite but sit behind a computer and throw out accusations.

Still waiting on him to show me where I defended James Gunn but he won't because he can't because he's all talk and no action.

his blatant affinity for pedophilia


Or his blatant affinity for pedophilia jokes?

It's one or the other, right? Unless you know something the rest of us don't?

Gunns' problem, aside from his big mouth on Twitter and his politics, is that he's not at all funny in those contexts. He's clearly not being serious, but he's so unfunny about it...THAT's the problem.

Take a great standup like Louis CK. He can take a toxic premise and make even the most dark hearted comic fan cringe but still laugh...because he's VERY funny.

You can jump to the 5:30 mark if you hate laughing, but here Louis talks about child molesters and you can hear the gasps as he slams into that premise...but there are still laughs. Because he's funny.

Louis a child molester? Nah...he's just funnier.

re: Reminder of James Gunn and his pedo inspired tweets
quote:

right, but you keep comparing him to Jackson and Singer which are totally different cases.



I'll try this one more time. If claiming something is just a joke is proper defense, then Jackson and Singer can claim the same defense.


In other words, falsely claiming he was just creating jokes should not be a proper defense for his pedo promoting


quote:

I still dont see what came from these "actions." did he hurt anyone? did he attack anyone?


Directly? no. Could he have influenced people with his pedo promoting? possibly. Could he have caused much harm to victims of sexual abuse? most likely.

Should he be in prison? no.

Should he be working for a company who's primary customer base is children? Hell to the no. That's fricking sick


quote:

how about the fact that those who know and work with him NOW stand behind him? should those actors also be fired for supporting him? why would they support such "heinous acts?" Notice no one came to Singer or Spacey's defense for a reason.




Hollywood is a weird place full of weird people who constantly defend each other's bad actions, so forgive me for not taking those actors by their character defenses of him. That's just silly.


And Singer has been making movies for a while even after getting accused a few years back. It's only now that the accusations have gotten to be overwhelming that his Hollywood compadres have bailed on him. They only stop supporting when their own careers and reputations will take a severe hit. Let's not be naive here.

re: Reminder of James Gunn and his pedo inspired tweets
I’m of the opinion that saying stupid shite a long time ago shouldn’t get someone fired. Just because it’s a political tactic used mainly by one side shouldn’t mean everyone uses it allowing it to become the norm.

In the end, he made light of a serious issue. It was wrong and disgusting. That doesn’t make him a pedo or a felon much less should he be out of work for it.

Anyone calling for his head is simply virtue signaling. It’s that simple.

Trump has been accused of multiple rapes. One accuser was a 13 year old trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein at his pedo sex parties



Why does someone always have to bring Trump into it? He has nothing to do with this.

I mainly see a guy making distasteful jokes. He was trying to be shocking and edgy and it wasn't funny. That being said the only one that I took seriously was the nambla tweet. I'm leaning toward giving the man the benefit of the doubt because the rest of them were shock tweets too but I found it to be disturbing. I think more is being made of this than it really is. Now when some victims start showing up I'll condemn the man. Until then he's just a dumbass with a shitty sense of humor.

I'm with you on all of that.

I just despise people who talk and talk and talk and talk and do absolutely nothing proactive about the things their advocating against. Other than post on message boards of course.

how tone deaf and illogical are you? This is the third time. You are comparing Gunn's WORDS to actually raping kids. Jackson could not say it was a joke because he had ACTUAL people accusing him of ACTUAL rape. If you can't see the difference, I can't help you.

For example, George Carlin made jokes about rape. Are you saying accused rapists should be able to use a "joke" defense? Because that's what your argument says.

You must love the idea of Big Brother.

so do you see the difference between Singer and Gunn?

I’m curious how old you and 225bred are. It seems to me like a lot of old folks don’t “get” a lot of the humor that is part of “internet culture”, and has been around for ages.
