Let's just take a second to look at how perfect G.B.F. is
This new movie G.B.F. (gay best friend) is everything tumblr’s been looking for. First of all, the theme to the movie:
It’s something I don’t think I’ve ever seen addressed in a movie before: How it’s not okay to objectify a group of people and use others to boost your social status.
But that’s not all. This movie points out a million gay stereotypes, and does it in a way that makes people realize just how stupid and harmful they really are. It uses gay jokes that are usually used in movies in order to turn a gay character into comic relief, but turns them around. Instead, the jokes are done to make fun of the people who objectify gay guys. And it does it BEAUTIFULLY.
It also shows how wrong it is to out somebody without their permission and PROMOTES SEXUAL CONSENT. MULTIPLE TIMES.
When one of the main romantic interests of the filmcomes onto Tanner and Tanner gets nervous the romantic interest says (and I quote): “I get it. You’re not there yet. So if you don’t mind, I’m gonna bounce." And then he does. That’s it. Consent, man.
One last scene. This is near the end of the film. Caprice is one of the main diva’s of the school, and like so many of the other characters, is obsessed with social status. She’s one of the girls who tries to use Tanner, the first gay guy to come out at the school, to make herself more popular because a "G.B.F.” has become a sign of social status. And then this happens to her:
BOOM. HOW DOES IT FEEL?
So if you haven’t yet: SEE THIS MOVIE. You won’t regret it.
