Not Everything Sucks: Gandalf and Magneto Edition

Ian McKellen, human treasure: 

The younger Dumbledore isn’t explicitly gay in the new ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie. Why do you think there are so few gay characters in blockbusters?
‘Isn’t he? That’s a pity. Well, nobody looks to Hollywood for social commentary, do they? They only recently discovered that there were black people in the world. Hollywood has mistreated women in every possible way throughout its history. Gay men don’t exist. “Gods and Monsters” [1998], I think, was the beginning of Hollywood admitting that there were gay people knocking around, even though half of Hollywood is gay.’

    The late Christopher Reeve started his career with two, I think, roles where he was gay. There was idiot chin wagging opining that he was ‘type-casting’ himself. This was before the ‘S’ jersey. It’s like saying after Barack’s first election, that we were now a ‘post racial’ society.
    Justa buncha hot air, as my mother usta call it.
