Re: Diablo Cody article

I'm pretty sure I just explained the reason, re: Diablo Cody, maybe four posts back. Did you not read that?

You said no one would bother to mention if a guy was a stripper when he wrote a script. ...

Re: Diablo Cody article

No way a guy working as a male stripper while trying to break in doesn't get covered. Impossible.

What's funny here is that you had nothing to say on the topic but jumped in to argue about intentions and interpretation for seven pages as per your statement above.

Re: Diablo Cody article

No, but there may well have been an argument about his race, his ethnicity (appearance), or his parentage. He comes from a privileged class. He has a leg up from the start, it's not offensive to...

Re: Diablo Cody article

Here's the thing Eric. You seem to object to my treating UP like an idiot. If you go back and reread UP's first few comments you will see that they were in fact idiotic at best and snarky potshots...

Re: Diablo Cody article

In summary, I have to say that I found it literally incomprehensible to the point of being ludicrous that anyone who lives as a human being on planet Earth in 2015 could possibly argue or try to...

Re: Diablo Cody article

Replace woman with Mexican, or African-American.

Should people not talk on a screenwriting forum about biases in Hollywood based on ethnicity because it "won't help people become better writers."...

Re: Diablo Cody article

You can go from any background to screenwriter, that's the beauty of it. There are barriers at every point, but there's no sign at the door that disqualifies you on the basis of something other than...

Yes, of course, obviously I feel that I've somehow been "called out" by your incisive analysis. :rolleyes:

Re: Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp

Re: Diablo Cody article

Okay, I will give you the benefit of the doubt. My point is that there is the appearance of bias as I have met many male screenwriters and I have met many female screenwriters and by the way many...
