Fury Director: There Are No Homosexual Undertones

Fury_4If you haven’t watched the Commando Director’s Cut on Blu-Ray yet, you might want to check it out.  For years, there have been odd allegations of a homo-erotic subtext in the movie created by the director.  Well in the director’s cut commentary, director Mark L. Lester finally and comprehensively put that nonsense to bed.  See 13 Things We Learned From Commando Director’s Cut Commentary.

Another movie that is getting the same treatment (‘they’re gay, right?!’) is Fury.  This one is even odder than Commando, because certain people, somehow, came to the conclusion that Brad Pitt and Shia LeBeouf’s characters were lovers.  With this ScreenCrush interview with David Ayer, they ask if WarDaddy is a homosexual.  No, says Ayer.  Then they ask again.  No, is the answer.  Well, why not ask a third time and try to force the ‘progressive’ answer out.  Here’s is what we’re talking about:

There’s an interpretation of Brad Pitt’s character, Wardaddy, and Shia LeBeouf’s character, Bible, having a more serious relationship than just the father and mother figures of a unit. I’ve heard you be adamant that it’s a father-mother dynamic, but is someone completely wrong for thinking that?
It’s interesting. It’s funny, again, I think it’s the disconnect between the civilian world and the military world.
When Bible is bandaging War Daddy’s arm, it’s a very loving, nurturing scene.
But that’s– you see that in the service. You see that on line units, you see that in the world of combat arms. You see that in a world where guys who laid down their lives for each other and that’s that thing: closer than brothers. The brotherhood and all that stuff. People don’t fucking get it unless they’ve lived it. So, for guys in the service, it’s like, “I know what that is.”
Personally, I think it’s a stretch, but not so far where it’s not worth exploring.
No, it’s fascinating it gets interpreted in that manner. It’s that thing, like, “Fuck, man, we’ve been together for three years, survived all this shit, it’s looking real bad, you’re hurt.” It’s just that honesty. It’s totally asexual – totally asexual. But it really is that closeness and the bonds of combat. Like I said, it’s the day in the life of a family and those emotions and those connections are deep.
Now can you imagine if, back in the day, an interviewer asked John Wayne just once if one of the characters he played in one of his war movies was a homosexual for treating a wounded comrade?  And if the interviewer tried to coerce the man into saying ‘Ok, ok! It’s a possibility, happy?’  Would John Wayne have a) Walked away from the interview or, b) Given the interviewer a black eye?

    People are obsessed with being heterosexual, these days.
    Just the other day a friend of mine didn’t want to help me perform a heavy ass exercise in the gym because he was afraid he’s have to touch my arm and people would think we’re gay. Really, it’s become THAT bad.

    Feminism and the march of gay activism have ruined western civilization. It is a curious fact of history that the widespread acceptance of homosexuality in a culture always seems to precede an overwhelming catastrophe which winds up burying that society. It seems to be a symptom of disease, decay and corruption.

      Well said and that is a fact since Sodom and Gomorrah days. It seems there’s a severe judgment on a nation who accepts homosexual perversion.

    When I was at basic training for army, every night it’d be impossible not to see another dude naked during shower time. In some military accommodation, there isn’t even any walls between showers – just a line of shower heads. Any insecure gay rights activist piss-ant or overly PC moron would accuse all of us of being queer.

    By the same token, if ever life got one of the boys down in the barracks, we’d all rally around them.

    But it’s not fucking gay. This shit needs to stop.
