Brilliant, but brutal.

20 minutes?! Not short enough...

i only watched the first minutes and can't really argue about the film but i think the answer of homophobes to your headline will be something like "if it would be switched, gay would be normal and i would be gay because i'm normal but it's not switched, that's why hetero is normal and i am normal"



So....how do they multiply and have children o.O? Do they use magic or alien test tubes to have babies?

sorry if we were switched the human population be dead now as we would have died out millions of years ago since then all we knew is how to hunt animlas and fuck

It's not a biological question, it's a role reversal to allow heterosexuals to better relate to homophobic discrimination.

Assuming this could be a potential theory of a alternate reality - the "homosexuals" would be able to procreate while the "heterosexuals" not be able to.

Which is probably why the "homosexuals" look at the "heterosexuals" weird...also.....using "breeder" as a insult l0l. Pretty much insulting parents and ancestors, you wouldnt exist if your parents didnt bring you into this world so the term "breeder" used as a insult is hilarious.

@Meaning in the video

Its not really homophobic discrimation (at least on my end) - I just dont think marriages (religious wise) should be allowed for homosexuals. If they want a civil union, it is fine and whatever benefits they want from the government, complain to the government about it instead of them just saying "Oh get married*) - I'm going by what I see in mainstream media  - churches doing homosexual weddings.

Edit: Also I completely agree on being against bullying/etc on those who are different. Bullying period should be punishable, its too bad people look at children and be like "Aww but their just kids". People need to be stricter.

Again, it's merely a perspective shifting construct, literal analysis kind of misses the point.

Let me first start off by saying, I'm sorry.  I say so because I find this video to be very amusing.  Let me also say that I'm not bigotted, but most that I will say will sound biggotted. But I am very tolerant consider all peoples to be fair in the way they are.  I just have some funny views.

I think this film is funny as all hell.  I see all these people and think 'Gay!', in a mockingly humorous manner.  The same way your 'homey' would describe the latest Lady Gaga video.  Like at near the beggining where the girl says let's play house.  We're the mommies and the two boys were their children.  I couldn't stop thinkining that those two boys were gay.  It's funny as alls hell.  And all those girls who were hating on the hetero girl, were all lesbians.  Funny as all hell.

The portion when the hetero girl was running away, I thought of my friends screaming, 'fag!'  Funny.  And yes, I am serious.  It's like in the Boondocks where Riley is calling everyone and their momma 'Nigga'. 

In a more serious note, the film does what it intends to do very well.  Despite laughing at a good portion of the film, it really describes the woes of gays and lesbians that we know, well.  Specially when the hetero girl is beaten and made to a pariah.  I'm hardset to believe that someone who is a homophobe won't root for the heterogirl.  Instead, they would cheer for her and maybe glance at themselves and question their believes.
