I recently discovered through several articles online that Gobber came out as gay in one scene? (Which I totally missed). I was confused by the line and I along with several others thought he was either referring to erectile dysfunction, his penis was bit off by a dragon or that he’s ugly maybe?
After Hiccup’s mother and father dance to their wedding song in an incredibly romantic scene Gobber throws out, “This is why I never got married. That and one other reason.” Which left I and the people I was with asking “what other reason?” On top of it being confusing the line wasn’t funny, almost like it was an inside joke that only the directors knew about.
It’s confirmed that Gobber is in fact gay by the director, Dean Dublois (who is openly gay himself). The line spurred when his voice actor Craig Ferguson added the bit on while recording and they decided to keep it. While I think it’s cool that he’s gay, I and basically everyone I knew didn’t notice it. All I really noticed was that he kept ruining one of the best scenes in the film.
I wish it was more upfront like Mitch from ParaNorman who came out with, “You’re gonna love my boyfriend, he’s a chick-flick nut!” to Courtney who had been hoping to get with him the whole film. That was funny and open and inclusive.
What’d you think? Did you catch that Gobber was coming out?
Bob and the deli guy.
#i had to make this just so i could watch it whenever i wanted #i just fucking love that it’s not played off like the usual gay panic joke #this rly exemplifies the humor of the show for me and why I love it so much #it’s akward and weird but never EVER mean #the important misunderstanding in this situation isn’t Bob’s sexuality; it’s the reason why he keeps buying turkeys #like he’s def more concerned that this deli guy thinks he’s not a real cook than he is about being hit on

There’s nothing wrong with you for wearing nail polish, just like there’s nothing wrong with me for holding Stef’s hand- what’s wrong is the people out there who make us feel unsafe
Q:Thinking of watching the film 'Weekend', thoughts?
I personally hated it … But everyone I know loved it.
To me it was just this drab looking film with an aura of depression floating over it. It felt like all the gay couple Instagram/hipster-wannabe photographs came to life in a big “I’m not like other gays!” Extravaganza.
But if you liked the series, Looking, which I also hated. You might enjoy it.
Q:About "Geography Club": I was bummed, but I wasn't torn Russell and Kevin didn't end up together. I don't know. They had sweet moments, but did you feel like their relationship wasn't developed much in the film? Other than the fact they were gay and pretty, I didn't feel a connection to that ship at all. By the way, I didn't know "Geography Club" was a book.
Yeah, their relationship seemed a little tossed together. It was rushed and not very fleshed out. It seemed almost like whoever wrote the script just went without on the first draft rather than rewriting it and pacing things out.
But my essential take on the movie is that they took a book about a gay kid who finds friends and acceptance and tried to make it about two pretty boys so that the gay male population would eat it up.
In the book the boys had more of a friendship it seemed and their was a lot less attention brought on the two popular girls Russel and Gunnar were hanging out with.
