X-Men 4 – “Fabulosity”

Posted by Daniel on June 1, 2006

For the past several months leading up the the release of X-Men 3, I've been hearing a lot of chatter from fellow satirists and critics alike regarding the movies' so-called hidden message

Perhaps you've heard of it.

In the movie, there is a pharmaceutical company that now has a "cure" for the mutant gene.  This causes mutants to declare war on humans.

The hidden message is that it reflects the real-life view of many regarding homosexuality…and it's subsequent cure.

I will be the first to admit, I thought this hidden message theory was just another conspiracy started by folks who are always too eager to find the raging gay in everything.  Remember Jerry Falwell and his war against Tinky Winky?  Here is a refresher for you.

 

In this scary world, there most certainly are those who think gays are mutants with a genetic malfunction that can – with good Christian brainwashing counciling – be cured.  For more information on this, just Google "Ex-Gay" and see some sick shit.

Now, X-Men may or may not be clandestinely referring to those who would "cure" gays.  There is no doubt this movie is darker and more sinister than the previous two installments.  Not to mention how, at times, the dialogue seems to be speaking to the modern debate of "are gays normal?".

It seems more likely that, again, like the previous Marvel Movies, this X-Men is simply a movie about all differences within humanity.  Unfortunately, there are always going to be those who feel morally superior and justified in either changing or eradicating those who show signs of being different.  When it comes to this mentality, I'll take the side of the "mutants" any day.

On the other hand, when I go to see a movie, I go for the entertainment, not the hidden messages.  As a human and an adult, I'd like to think that we can keep the real seperate from the movie.  After all, real life is far more exciting.

I will always stand up against those who preach hate, and I am fully conscious of just who those foes are.  Yes, If they think I'm afraid of their hate and bigotry, they don't know my powers.
