Stefan on SNL is disturbingly homophobic.

I've never met a gay man who act like him. I've never met anyone who acts like him.

by Anonymousreply 67May 25, 2011 11:00 PM

He's suppose to be a self-centred clubber who's most likely high when he's being interviewed by Seth. If you think he's suppose to represent all gay people, then yes, he's homophobic. But I just think he's suppose to represent self-centred young people.

For some reason SNL has been getting a free pass on its juvenile borderline-homophobia for years.

Oh please, R1. If you don't think Stefan is gay, than you need glasses and a hearing aid.

by Anonymousreply 4December 21, 2010 5:26 PM

I think Stefon is hilarious, but I take him to be a sendup of a very particular sort of myopic young clubkid on drugs, and as such, he's damned close to the real thing. Congrats on never meeting anyone like that, but it's pretty common (and ridiculous) in NYC.%0D %0D I also think that Bill Hader, who usually looks a little like Frankenstein's monster, is absolutely adorable as Stefon.%0D %0D

I didn't say I didn't think Stefan was suppose to be. I just think that their are enough gay characters on tv at this point that everytime we see one, that character is not suppose to be a representative of the whole community. %0D %0D But then I haven't been tallying SNL's record lately.

Stefan's primary characteristic is that he's a meth head tweaker. All other characteristics are secondary. He's probably the best original SNL character in years. And I agree with R8, about there being enough representation these days that not every gay character need be noble.

And beyond being gay, he's pansexual, more into midgets and smurfs, hell's angels and a 200 pound baby DJ. He's several exits past the gay/straight continuum.is one of the funniest comic actors

Lighten up. Bill Heder is hilarious.

I don't necessarily agree with OP's statement, but do you ever notice how we never fail to have threads on SNL, even though it sucks ripe nasty Cheryl ass? Why does SNL's staff feel the need to post here?

Yes, I recall at the end of the 90's when "Survivor" started up and they played the UK QAF there was story in the media about how all the sudden gay people weren't nice assistants anymore. Shocking.

The first few times Stefon was on it was really funny. The joke has kinda gotten old.

R11, SNL has been a New York-centric show since its inception. How could you possibly miss that? A good portion of Weekend Update is local tristate area news as opposed to national news, and a good portion of the sketches and characters are specifically for New York audiences. There's plenty of riffing on the crap happening on the national stage too, but the show is geared toward the people sitting in the live audience.

by Anonymousreply 33December 21, 2010 7:27 PM

He comes across as the typical Gay New Yorker to me. He is still funny, but only when you are looking at him from outside NYC. NYers probably wouldn't think he was funny.

Ask any member of the NRA or Country Music fan and "Stefon" is exactly what they think all Gays from NYC are like. Truth.

Look up any old Phil Donahue show with Michael Alig, James St. James and that gaggle of funsters who made the 80s-90s club scene (in between dismembering murders) and Stefan seems normal by comparison.

Those were great days!

Well, at least Stefon's ramblings are creative. Compare that to what you see in Wichita.

Not "truth" just because you say so. I don't know about the NRA, but "country music fans" (what is that code for?) are not that idiotic. SOME of them are idiotic, but when you say it's "truth" that "they" all think like it's ridiculous.

by Anonymousreply 44December 22, 2010 11:38 PM

Hader is one of the few talents SNL has going for it right now - he's like the new-millennium Phil Hartman. I love his Italian talk show host and Vincent Price. Too bad the writing and other cast members can't recapture some of that 80s era magic.

by Anonymousreply 45December 23, 2010 12:02 AM

The opening of SNL is always - "Live from New York." That should give any of you out there questioning a big clue.%0D %0D I don't think Stefan's sexuality has ever been mentioned. So it's interesting that those out there screaming homophobia have pegged him as Gay. I think that says more about your self-loathing than any homophobia on SNL's part. I actually think in the last sketch he mentions a girlfriend. %0D %0D Stefan is a representation of a drugged out club kid who is completely out of touch with what the real world might find interesting our acceptable. He is more a joke on that type of person than on middle america.

by Anonymousreply 46December 23, 2010 12:18 AM

It's an easy target to make fun of someone who is actually different, though, R46. SNL will become edgy when it attacks the people in Nebraska or Ohio.

He always has a references something real. I picked up on Tranderson Cooper, which probably references his boyfriends new bar / club Bedlum in the east village, alphabet city (is it still called that?)

He mentioned Furkles before - fat urkles and there is this kid at my gym who is THE furkle he was talking about. Funny how both "Tranderson" and "Furkle" work out at David Barton where Seth trains as well.

Oh come on, Stefon is not gay. He's just a drugged out club kid. We all know the type in NYC and none of them are gay. Bill Hader captures them perfectly.

by Anonymousreply 59December 23, 2010 9:29 AM

Stefan's one of the few funny things on that show. This season has been particularly bad. It's only watchable with a dvr because you can fast forward when it becomes clear a skit isn't funny. I don't know that I've seen any skits in their entirety, they're that bad.

The problem with SNL is they find something funny and then beat it to death so that you forget that it was funny in the first place. The Adam Sandberg song parodies, for example. Great stuff in the past. But the 'I just had sex' one from this season was so one note and unfunny.

by Anonymousreply 60December 23, 2010 11:32 AM

Hader said on a talk show that Stefon was based on a barista from his local coffee shop who lives in his mom's basement and complains to all of the customers about his life. I swear.

The funniest character they've had in years, IMO.
