Thanks to zeto for the virtual Christmas gift!

US Movies: "Gay" Character In Tron Is Offensive? First of all, Zuse, the guy they're talking about was not gay. You're probably wondering how I can say that with such authority, but it's simple -- he's a computer program. Okay, so Zuse is coded (in the film critic way rather than the programming way) as gay. So is he evil? Nope, he's way too much fun to be considered genuine evil. I found the character likeable and, in fact, the highlight of the movie. The author of the article is trying way too hard to get traffic from people searching for Tron. Err, I guess he succeeded with me.

I spent my Christmas watching Avenue Q with J. Afterwards, we walked to Asakusa for fun, then caught the train to Roppongi for Christmas dinner. There's a great American restaurant there that does a turkey and roast beef buffet. Even the broccoli is amazing -- according to the menu, it was cooked with nuts and oyster sauce, but all I could taste was 'really good broccoli'. They had a selection of US craft beer too -- I recommend Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar.

My cat is now wearing a Santa outfit. He seems pretty happy with it.

i watched tron legacy and thought castor was fabulous not gay, there is very little in the film to suggest he is gay, in fact he hangs out with a woman in a body condom, an outfit way more reveally than that of Quorra, and runs a night club
he's more peter stringfellow than gay....
seriously, people look for things to be offended about

I think it's fair to say that, while Zuse couldn't be gay, he could well have been intended to appear as such. But yes, good point about him being surrounded by beautiful women.

I'm sure he got a lot of net traffic for his rant though.

"Gay" Character In Tron Is Offensive?

What ever next? I didn't get any gay vibe off the character, just that he was an extreme extrovert, and like you say he was a computer programme so sexuality wouldn't even feature in that world anyway.

Yeah, I loved how they managed to link it to DADT as well. Anything for traffic, huh?

Thanks for your vote!

I did! Hope you had a great Christmas too. :)
