  8. Yeah, this movie was creepy, as a gay man, very uncomfortable to watch! More like a Mommie Dearest type! I don’t know anybody gay that is like them. It’s a joke!

  15. Fact. You are a troll account. Nothing about you is real. (I’ve checked). You are not who you say you are and as far as I am concerned you can take your fake backstory to whatever part of your brain that made that up and cease and desist. Seriously, not even Westboro Church would hire someone as blatantly fake as…wait they would. I take that back. Least you know where you belong. (The bottom barrel/Laughing Stock of Religion).
