Zoolander: The Social Justice Warrior

It is not so often that I get to talk about my guilty pleasures in life. Stupid comedies happens to be one of them and Zoolander is near the top of the list. And therefore, no one was more excited for the sequel than I am. My wife hates the movie by the way, if someone is interested, I still need a date to see the movie, as my wife will not go to watch with me.

But I digress. I came across a Mashable article about the terrible movie that depicts a transgender model as an antagonist.

The petition to boycott Zoolander 2 now boasts nearly 17000 signatures. The author of the petition states "This is the modern equivalent of using blackface to represent a minority,".

I just wanted to let that sink in. If this author of the petition weren't serious it would be laughable. Clearly they didn't see the first movie, which made fun of models. Which is a much larger minority than Transgender. They also neglected to mention that in the first installment the orgy that took place. The movie and I am sure its sequel will break boundaries of many sorts. People feel the need to be offended by anything. If someone is gay, transgender of whatever, don't look to be offended by some stupid low brow comedy, just be who you are.

This new trend of being offended at a sneeze must stop. If you are expecting PC-ness from a movie that boasts ridiculously good looking people than you are barking up the wrong tree. On behalf of all watchers of terrible and slapstick comedies, CHILL OUT!
