Karamo Brown Thinks ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Is ‘Problematic’; LGBT Midterm Candidates and Winners; Harmful Gender Stereotypes To Be Banned In UK

Karamo Brown Thinks Call Me By Your Name Is ‘Problematic’

It’s not a secret that I’ve NEVER been a fan of the book or movie, Call Me By Your Name. I’ve posted about it numerous times. And I’m not the only one.

Karamo Brown is not so peachy-keen, if you will, about Call Me By Your Name. In fact, the Queer Eyestar thinks the 2017 film is “problematic as f*ck,” as he reveals in a new interview.

“I’ve worked with many survivors of sexual assault, especially in the LGBTQ community, which oftentimes goes unreported,” Brown tells Insider. “And so the minute I saw that movie, I thought, ‘Here we are glorifying this sort of relationship.’”

Here’s the linkI agree with Brown. He’s absolutely correct. He gets it. 

Side Note: There are some excellent gay films out there. Love Simon is a real gay romance, a wonderful gay romance. We need more movies like Love Simon that promote good, positive gay relationships. 

LGBT Midterm Candidates and Winners

Here’s a link where you can see the video.

Harmful Gender Stereotypes To Be Banned In UK

Here’s something more positive for a change.

The UK’s advertising watchdog has announced it will ban all ‘gender stereotypes that are likely to cause harm’.
The Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP) said stereotypes in adverts ‘contribute to how people see themselves and their role in society‘.
Here’s where you can read more. It’s a good deal more complicated than it sounds and it should be interesting to see how it plays out. I can just hear the religious conservatives moaning now.
