"Crash" wins for lack of transsexual jokes


Is it me or is it rare to see a film that doesn't dane to make one solitary transsexual joke? "Crash," this year's best picture, didn't bother to crack even one jibe at the transfolk. It did, however, remind us that black women are victims, white men are good (or not that bad) and the rest of us...well, just screw the rest of us.

For those of you interested in the film, I can't recommend highly enough the review posted on the blog blackademic.com which also links to some other good ones.

But really, good work, Crash producers, and thanks for leaving us the heck alone.

I think what you meant to say was "Is it me or is it rare to see a film that doesn't DEIGN to make one solitary transsexual joke?" -- as in "Is it me or is it rare to see a film that doesn't stoop to make one solitary transsexual joke?" as opposed to "Is it me or is it rare to see a film that doesn't a native or inhabitant of Denmark to make one solitary transsexual joke?"

But please, if you did, in fact, intend to say the latter -- please do correct me.
