Books, life the universe

Sheer stupidity is not noted for its sensible articles - unless you go for the wilder shores of conspiracy theory land. However I was totally taken aback by an article entitled 'Do animated movies prepare children for sodomy?' posted on 22 May 2010 and written by someone called Sam Peyo.

The author analyses movies such as Shark Tale, Madagascar I, Ice Age II attempting to show that there are scenes in which homosexuality can be inferred by the characters' appearances or behaviour or from scenes where animals are hit up the behind by something or someone. The latter is pretty standard cartoon stuff I would have thought but there seems to be a deeper meaning in it to this author. As for Melman the Giraffe being gay in Madagascar - I must say I didn't notice. Was there really a character in Ice Age II who wore an ear ring? If so it completely passed me by and I have seen the film.

The author might just as well be saying that the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz was gay because of his behaviour and what about the cowardly lion? Obviously a woman trapped in a man's body.

I sometimes wonder whether people like this author have ever heard of 'projection' because it seems to me there's a hell of a lot of projection going on here.
