If you need to see that to understand that he’s gay then all is lost for any kind of subtle storytelling.

Benedict on the interviewer’s question why we do not see Alan Turing having sex in the film. 

(x)

okay you know what, this is absolute bullshit

if that’s true then why do we have to have straight sex scenes in EVERY MOVIE EVER??? I know they’re straight and in love

no one ever says this about straight historical figured in movies

IT IS NOT BAD OR UNSUBTLE STORYTELLING TO HAVE GAY CHARACTERS WHO ARE SEXUALLY ACTIVE

ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING ALAN TURING FUCKING OTHER MEN IS LITERALLY THE BEGINNING OF HIS TROUBLES

NOT BECAUSE HE LOOKED AT THEM, NOT BECAUSE THEY EXCHANGED SUBTLE GLANCES, NOT BECAUSE IT “WASN’T RELEVANT TO THE PLOT” BECAUSE IT ABSOLUTELY IS

BECAUSE ALAN TURING HAD SEX WITH OTHER MEN, BECAUSE ALAN TURING LOVED OTHER MEN WITH HIS BODY, BECAUSE ALAN TURING FUCKED MEN

AND IT WAS ILLEGAL

AND THE GOVERNMENT FORCED HIM TO POISON HIS BODY AND DETERIORATE HIS MIND

AFTER HE SAVED ENGLAND’S ASS DURING WORLD WAR II WITH THE BOMBES AND ENIGMA. AND IS THE FATHER OF MODERN AI AND MODERN COMPUTER SCIENCE

AND HE WAS ALSO GAY

AND THESE THINGS ARE NOT SEPARATE FROM EACH OTHER

HOW DARE ANYONE PULL A DUMBLEDORE ON ALAN TURING’S LIFE STORY AND SAY ANYTHING OTHERWISE WOULD BE “UNSUBTLE”

Maybe Hollywood should learn how to write gay characters without erasing part of them in the name of “subtlety”.

A movie about Alan Turing’s life cannot avoid discussing the fact that the reason he died young was because he committed the “crime” of having sex with a consenting partner of the same gender.

I will fucking cut someone my dislike for Benedict Cumberbatch has increased now to hatred. Alan Turing is one of my personal heroes. Bendydick Gofuckyourself does not deserve the honor of portraying him onscreen honestly. I already thought that before, but now I’m sure. Fuck this.

This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

Yup.

So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.

Omg it was a funny episode -_- if you don’t like it, don’t watch. Yes, you have a valid point, but holy crap.

HAHA OKAY NO

"If you don’t like it shut up and don’t watch it" has its place. This is not it. Allow me to educate you on why you’re wrong.

Family Guy is a detriment. Plain and simple. Vox wasn’t too far off when they called this show “a blight on humanity”. Yeah, it has its moments where a couple of the quips they make get a laugh out of the audience. The show having long since lost its funniness isn’t the issue.

Everything this show stands for is absolutely sickening, and its more prominent in this episode than it has been in years. 

Literally everything wrong with Family guy is jam packed into this episode. Here’s a list of just some of the things I can rattle off the top of my head.

It’s generally just unpleasant. There are a lot of moments that stood out in this episode as being really fucking awful, even by Family Guy standards (Stewie kidnapping/torturing people and telling Moe his daughter is being raped as a “prank call”, Meg carving Lisa’s name into her arm, etc). Family Guy has a nasty habit of thinking shocking/disturbing = funny. It doesn’t. It’s just unpleasant and not fun to watch.

The gags are unfunny/drag on for too long. This happens in almost every modern FG episode, but it’s really bad in this one. (The car wash scene, Homer and Peter’s fight, and just the majority of the episode really).

MacFarlane is using this series as a means to jerk himself off. The amount of self gratifying bullshit that Seth threw into Simpsons Guy was nausea inducing. The entire first—what, ten minutes of the episode was about how everyone calling out MacFarlane on his racist, sexist, and generally awful bullshit are, in his eyes, a load of oversensitive braindead idiots with no senses of humor. There are ways to respectfully make jokes about awful subjects. South Park does it all the time. Family Guy does not. Not only that, but MacFarlane plugs his other shows left and right and even goes so far as to shit on Bob’s Burgers—an INFINITELY superior show—in order to fuel his own ego. He’s a LITERAL MANCHILD.

Now, let’s get to the big issue. Family Guy’s messages are absolute trash, and the fact that it still makes money means that PEOPLE ARE BUYING IT. This show’s morals are just horrific. “Sexism is what makes men men” (I Am Peter, Hear Me Roar), “Abuse victims should stay in abusive relationships for their abusers’ benefits (Seahorse Seashell Party), and that’s definitely not the worst of it. This show is teaching its primary audience everything that is wrong with society. It doesn’t matter that these ass backwards lessons are being told in the form of jokes, they’re still normalizing and enforcing ideas that NEED TO STOP.

And the only way they’re gonna stop is if we raise fucking hell about it.

Also, no. It was not a funny episode.

BREAKING: Here’s the tweet that could lead to a new grand jury in Ferguson, MO. 

#Ferguson@shaunking took screenshot of tweeter @thesusannichols who claims to know juror on #MikeBrown #DarrenWilson grand jury & appears to be receiving leaked information. King says that within seconds of posting this, her friends told her to delete it & she did but not before it was screenshotted. She has since deleted her entire account but King says they checked & she is indeed a #STL resident w/ years’ worth of tweets from there. “If true, her tweet not only reveals a leak in the grand jury, but gives us an ugly glimpse into how things have gone so far. This person who posted it on twitter & her contact on the grand jury must be fully & completely investigated & removed if it’s true.”-@shaunking

Y’all better reblog the fuck outta this post it on facebook, twitter, IG, myspace, friendster, everything get this information out
