Theyre all fake. I wonder why people continue to buy into all the entertainer bs.

but yes, it is amusing to see Madonna getting a dose of her own fake liberal pc medicine. And 'cultural appropriation' no less!

Youre hypocritical saying if its consensual its ok. Are you so disingenuous that you cant see that surface "consent" is meaningless when youve been trafficked or otherwise coerced into being a prostitute?

@strangerland,

Indeed it is the involuntary aspect that concerns me. So many of the women (and children) in the world of prostitution - and Im quite sure the Indonesian variety is no different - are there because of intimidation and coercion or unfortunate circumstance.

Meanwhile we have the JT boys club telling us how healthy and natural it is.

Sorry if I cant join in the denial.

Whats a trendy lefty to do? On the one hand they gotta go with the freedom thing and sex being healthy and natural so nothing wrong with what these jokers did. But then they have to sweep under the mat that prostitution is exploitative inthe worst way of the often abused and intimidated women - and children - who are in that world.

"if both parties are there voluntarily" - you might want to take a reality check.

@Ike-in-Tokyo,

Gay Bond is a great idea! But if Idris Elba plays gay 007 the LGBTQ community will flounce and pout cuz Idris isnt gay. They want a gay actor, naturally.

Ike-in--Tokyo, yes, a gay Bond!

but hes still the love em and leave em 007 we all know.

I can see scenes like this:

An annoyed Bond boy fuming, "...and he didnt even have the decency to give me a reach-around!"

@Toastedheretic,

just to be clear. I have absolutely no problem with actors of different nationalities, ethnicities, religeons, sexual orientation, politicsl beliefs,etc etc playing charracters that differ from themselves.

I dont care that pierce brosnan is irish, george lazenby is australian, morgan freeman isnt south african ( when he played nelson mandela), daniel day-lewis isnt handicapped (my left foot), etc.

Bond is white and british - I dont care who plays him. If they want to put makeup or prosthetics on Idris Elba to make it possible for him to play 007 as conceived by the author Im absolutely fine with that.

Just as if they want to do the same for an asian or white guy - or transexual actor for that matter - to play John Shaft.

@Toasted heretic,

who (except you) said anything about being 'incensed'? We're having a discussion here. Really, why do you like to throw in these subtle (you think) pieces of ad hom and disinformation?

"Evolve". Yeah, lets add some new touches to the Mona Lisa too. Leonardo didnt have much contact with Africans. Im sure he wouldnt mind you rectifying things.

Not that it will make any difference to the relentlessy "progressives", but Ian Fleming based Bond on a composite of people he had known in the intelligence field (none of whom were black) and his own brother. Fleming stated that he envisaged Bond as physically resembling Hoagy Carmichael.

But dont let the truth get in the way.
