If The Avatar DVD Sex Scene Doesn’t Include Ambiguous Genitalia, Will It Be Even More ‘Transphobic’?

To ensure a select few Internet bloggers still consider the ridiculously profitable Avatar to be transphobic, a sex scene — between Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington’s Na’vi characters (the blue people) — still be included on the DVD. “If you sync to your banshee and you’re syncing to a tree, why not sync into a person?” says Saldana. “I almost feel like you’ll have the most amazing orgasm, I guess.” The most amazing transphobic orgrasm, you mean!

    Why are you still on about this? I don’t get it. This is the most absurd thing you guys have covered heavily. It’s worse then the constant coverage of Davey Wavey.

  • Melisa

    I don’t get how Avatar is at all Transphobic. Stop being stupid.

  • Josh

    Guys, it’s sarcasm. They’re taking the piss. Get over it.

  • James

    Even as sarcasm, it adds more fuel to the fire, and more search results here to what is easily-missed as sarcasm by most. Queerty, please cut it out already.

  • sebastien

    is there something wrong with you?

    what’s your problem with this movie??? I just don’t get it!

    Queerty: Stabs at transgender comedy, locating Ireland, and spelling “plague” are tasks best left to professionals in those fields. In the wrong hands, e.g. Conan O’Brien’s, Dick Cheney’s, a few of yours) things turn ugly quickly and you spoil our breakfast and set a bad tone for the day. Please don’t make us go to work hungry, poorly informed and cranky. Thank you. These things are said because we really, really like you. And because we like to hang out here.

    Seriously? I’m tired of hearing about this. Transphobic? This is probably the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. It’s a great movie, and it doesn’t need to incorporate transgender topics to make it more “appealing.” There weren’t any gay undertones, and you didn’t see anyone complaining. Cut it out already.

    I agree, it’s getting out of control already.

    And why the hell we see this Avatar thing in the upper-right corner instead of Prop 8 trial‘s informer? I bet not everyone knows about it yet.

    Movies and TV series don’t have to include gays or trannies all the time, we gotta understand that. Also, they don’t have to describe the world the way we want it to be in the future in our minds… Everyone has the right to fantasize in any weird way possible. Even if this fantasy really contained something offensive, it’s just a fantasy. Lighten up, people, and stop looking for clues of mass destruction everywhere, don’t be conspiracy theory freaks, knock if off already. (This was meant to be said to those who believe in the Avatar conspiracy against transsexuals [or transgenders? I forgot which was it…].)

    Yeah too bad avatar didn’t include gay homosexuality and a bunch of transis. Makes it a really bad, hard to buy movie. Because we all know that transsexuality is very, very natural.

    That’s why almost any species on earth, over millions of years, evolved into a transgenic/transsexual we can see all over… lol

  • Schteve

    Uhh, why get mad at Queerty for it? They agree calling the movie transphobic is utterly ridiculous too.
