Apparently we've made such progress with LGBT rights that we are now attacking allies for making statements that are more nuanced. There's absolutely nothing wrong with what he said. Why do we have to coopt a legacy character that is already associated with hyper masculinity when there are many more opportunities to create unique and more interesting gay characters that could easily be embraced by a new generation? I don't have a problem with making Superman, or a fake version, gay in theory but it's almost as if the creators are deliberately trolling audiences who already have a built in expectation for what the character represents.

But this Woke offensive and mindless trollery are doing nothing for our cause and just causing people to self censor. It reminds me of when I was given the task of writing an opinion column. My job became more difficult not because instead of simply communicating what I thought, I had to work backwards from what was approved. I didn't do it too long but at some point even I became confused about how I felt because I was so used to bullshitting for so long. Let people have honest conversations regarding race and sexuality even if the powers that be disapprove.

R36 Supes can be gay, lesbian, bi or trans due to a little thing called red kryptonite.

Last time I checked the effects lasted for 24 hours so it's not being "woke" if he has a storyline that changes his sexual orientation or gender.

He's been a human sized ant-Superman (among other things) with just this one plot device.

Magic (besides red suns & various forms of kryptonite) can also make changes to Supes as Mr. Mxyzptlk, Lord Satanis & his wife Syrene (who I believe used their magical abilities back in the early 80s to split him into 2 separate Supermen which cut all of his powers in half) have proven over his 80+ year history.

Fans are aware that Supes will undergo changes to his usual nature from time to time as his notable Red Superman/Blue Superman phase has proven his history. Besides most who are upset by this probably haven't read a Supes comic in ages.

Maybe so, R80, but he might also be thinking of the fact that he played gay in a couple movies 20+ years ago, which was actually kind of a brave thing for an actor to do at the time. If it's soooo not newsworthy, though, why even bother bringing it up. Yeah, I know the answer to that - Fox and their dog whistles - but I give Dean a slight benefit of the doubt because of the past roles he's played.

Couple of movies? I recall only THE BROKEN HEARTS CLUB. His bravery was shared by Timothy Olyphant, Zach Braff, Andrew Keegan, Justin Theroux and Michael Bergin among others. I think Billy Porter and Jennifer Coolidge - who co-starred in the film too - did a little bit more for actors "at the time".

He also played gay in a movie called SAFE MEN.

I can see why some thought/think it was brave of him to take a couple gay roles. Another interpretation could be that he was trying to get some attention on exactly that basis, since he wasn't exactly turning down major film and TV roles at the time (or, God knows, since).

by Anonymousreply 90October 14, 2021 5:30 AM

R90 Thanks for the info and I agree about his motivation to play gay roles at the time. At that time Hugh Grant had no problems to find roles in the US after he did MAURICE in 1987. Dean Cain is just a very limited actor. In one of his most recent films OBAMAGATE : THE MOVIE (2020) he starred with a bald John James (original DYNASTY's Jeff Colby as Comey) and Kristy Swanson (another repugnant cunt) ...

I think it was brave for Michael Ontkean, Harry Hamlin and Kate Jackson to star in MAKING LOVE in 1982. But twenty years later? No.

BROKEN HEARTS CLUB was filmed years after Matthew Broderick, River & Keanu, Patrick Stewart, Robin Williams, Kevin Kline and others were in TORCH SONG TRILOGY (1988), MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO (1991), JEFFREY (1995), THE BIRDCAGE (1996) or IN & OUT (1997) - to name just a few US independent or studio films with gay lead characters.

Oh please, there's nothing to defend when it comes to this fool, and it's incredibly transparent who is coming to his defense here. Even if there is a point to having original characters being gay or bi, he's not saying that out of the kindness of his heart. He's throwing a fit because it plays right into the hands of the devolved, whiny excuses for "real" men his right-wing, trump-loving ass panders to these days because the world is changing in a way they can't understand, and exposes how weak and fragile most of these little boys really are. His complaining plays right into that trope - don't take away what they feel is 'theirs', that they have always 'owned' ...not because he actually really gives a damn about original gay/bi characters. And he's comes off even more a fool because this isn't even Clark Kent, but supposedly the son... a new, Gen Z character. So what's the fucking issue...

(Oh, and for those saying, "well, he still works", uh, have you seen the shit he makes lately? Other than "Hit the Floor", which was a somewhat decent show, there is NOTHING to write home about when it comes to his body of work.)

In 2000, Dean was known as a TV actor, having done primarily made-for-TV movies after Lois and Clark ended. He was trying to get into big screen movies and campaigned hard to get the role in Broken Hearts Club. The studio was reluctant to cast him because he was a TV actor. When they did cast Dean, the movie got lots of free publicity thanks to the casting.
