Audio: 'The Help' as role model for -- discrimination?!

by Jeremy Hooper

Openly gay Tate Taylor both directed and wrote the screenplay for The Help, adapting and shaping best friend Kathryn Stockett's words for the screen. Openly gay designer Nate Berkus was one of the film's producers. Several key cast members are also on board with equality, with star Emma Stone even telling Gay Times, "[A] lot of gay people in the US are facing a ton of inequality right now so that was a major reference point for me in gaining knowledge in this time period to see a present example of people that are American citizens that are not being treated equally."

But never mind that and many other key facts about this film, its players, and its message. Here's Eagle Forum of New Jersey president Carolee Adams, speaking at today's NJ assembly hearing on marriage, using the aforementioned movie to deny "changeable" gay people their piece of the civil rights pie. Those comments come about 1:20 in:

Riiiight, Ms. Adams. And The Artist makes your case for the importance of spoken word.
