The gay marriage debate in 50 years
I don’t know if it is worth pointing out that cultures can’t change instantly. It would be nice if they could, but they can’t. This is especially relevant when we try and immediately strong-arm cultures that are less progressive than we are now (but more progressive than we were 50 years ago) into being just like us.
It doesn’t excuse those cultures…just like it doesn’t excuse segregation, but we were not able to overcome segregation because some enlightened society came in and forced us…we had to do it on our own, with our own leaders and villains and heros within our own structures.
But Hank, we kind of did overcome segregation by force. Not a separate nation, but the integration of the Little Rock 9 was not, like, requested by the people of Arkansas.
Hard to imagine, but.
Joss as fuck. Fantastic. Subverts all the way back to tropedom.

Clever premise, well-executed. Charming, funny, and a bit gross. Sometimes a tad heavy handed, and don’t expect much depth. Also, I wrote this before I saw it and I was 100% correct.

Just finished watching it. It’s freaking great. Really disturbing in it’s own, weird, way, but incredibly fascinating. Also noteworthy for its plot (with twists), given it’s a documentary. I continue to wish Banksy were less overexposed so I could pretend to be cool by being a fan.
