Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.

Have you tried… not being stupid?

This is the second time I see this trailer, and it irks me the same each time. Have you tried… not being a mutant? Is the whole X-Men 2 movie just as atrociously dumb as this line? Or is it just the trailer’s editor who wanted to humiliate Singer by emphasizing on the most stupid line in his career? Have you tried not being a mutant? It’s not just stupid and demagogic, it’s downright insulting to the people it’s supposed to be directed at. (Gays, in case you missed the point.) And even if I happened to be the only one taking it personally, I’d still be right. Have you tried not being a retard? Have you tried not being black? Have you tried not being a girl? I had already criticized the first X-Men for stupidly equating anti-mutantism with anti-semitism. Looks like they changed their target this time. It’s a big less serious, but it’s just as dumb.
