I recall three years ago when people complained because Walmart carried “yaoi” titles in their online stores–promoting the gay agenda (forget that yaoi is all about the female-gaze, not the male gays). Walmart was quick to denounce that they would never sell ‘books of that nature’ in their brick and mortar outlets (still getting my head around that one).
Yesterday, while searching their movie section for a hard-to-find Blu-Ray (damn, we went everywhere!) I saw ‘I Spit on Your Grave’, the original uncut edition, sitting next to the remake of ‘I Spit on Your Grave’. Each title was under $10.
So promoting any form homosexuality in their Brick-and-Mortar stores is offensive, but selling a rape-exploitation movies, is free commerce? FWIW, appreciate ‘Spit’ for its whole revenge angle, but this isn’t a crit of that movie--my issue lies in that Walmart seems fine with selling items on the notion that ‘heterosexual rape’ is less morally repugnant then ‘gay romance’.
One is not the other, by a fucking long shot.
