Bear Icon Seth Rogen Is Sorry About Those Homophobic Jokes

by matt baume May 07, 2016


Who knew? Apparently, Seth Rogen has a sensitive side, and we don’t just mean his taint. In an interview with The Guardian, he acknowledged that some of his earlier movies had some homophobic content — particularly 2007’s Superbad.

“There’s for sure some stuff in our earlier movies — and even in our more recent movies — where even like a year later you’re like ‘Eh, maybe that wasn’t the greatest idea,’” he said. “There are probably some jokes in ‘Superbad’ that are bordering on blatantly homophobic at times … They’re all in the voice of high school kids, who do speak like that, but I think we’d also be silly not to acknowledge that we also were, to some degree, glamorizing that type of language in a lot of ways.”

What language in particular? Well, there’s an f-word in here:

So, yeah, less of that kind of thing would probably be nice. Seems like he’s gotten a little older and wiser since then, and discovered, miraculously, that it’s possible to write funny insults without also insulting wide swaths of your audience.

It’s nice to hear that Rogen is sorry about the language that he put in films a few years ago. It means that we can return to fapping to pictures of him without feeling guilty.

His new movie is Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, and features Dave Franco playing a gay guy in what we can hope will be a somewhat more sensitive portrayal than just the throwing-around of random slurs.

And his film from a few months ago, The Night Before, has a gay joke involving sexting and a dick pic that actually works and isn’t homophobic at all.

Marriage equality is nice and all, but this is what it must feel like to be truly accepted. No more jokes at our expense from Seth Rogen. It’s all we could ever have hoped for.

Apparently Alabama Hasn’t Gotten The Memo That Gay Marriage Is Legal In The United States

by Graham Gremore October 21, 2016

Alabama. The Heart of Dixie. Epicenter of the Civil Rights Movement. Breeding ground of the KKK. Home of the Crimson Tide and antigay Governor Robert Bentley, who, as you may recall, had his adulterous phone sex recording leak earlier this year. Historically, the state has never been particularly good at advancing with the times. And it doesn’t appear to be getting any better [...]

6 Homophobes Standing By Donald Trump Despite That Little Sex Assault Problem

by JohnGallagher October 21, 2016

In light of the long line of women coming forward to dispute Donald Trump’s claim that he never sexually assaulted anyone, Trump lost a lot of support from key political figures, including Sen. John McCain and House Speaker Paul Ryan. But one group is standing shoulder to shoulder with Trump: religious right leaders. Yes, the [...]
