No "Titty" In Upstate New York

The Watertown Daily Times is reporting that a little uproar has come about from St. Lawrence County officials removing a poster for the Out at the Movies Film Festival in Upstate New York. Allegations of homophobia ensued:


St. Lawrence County was accused Monday night of homophobia for removing a poster advertising the Out at the Movies film festival.

More than 20 gay and lesbian residents and their supporters slammed the county at Mondays Legislature meeting over the administration’s decision to remove the poster from a public bulletin board in the Department of Social Services building.

“The real issue is that we know in our society there is homophobia,” said David R. Weissbard, Canton. “County policy cannot be that we give into that ignorance.”

A poster advertising the movies at the festival was taken down two weeks ago after about six employees complained that they found words in them offensive.

The words? The titles of three films: Itty Bitty Titty Committee, Butch Jamie and Out at the Wedding.

Out at the Wedding??? But seriously, “Titty” and “Butch” are hardy something to freak out over. I’m glad the festival folk gave those tight ass complainers a little fight, even if it is questionable whether it was homophobia at play or just extreme lameness.
