Bring It On!
      #8895 - 08/26/00 03:56 PM

Okay, maybe I am just easily offended, but what is with the AIDS jokes in the new movie about cheerleading "Bring It On". I am HIV+ and I work at my local AIDS organization so I am well aware of how far this country has come in terms of acceptance. See, they never actually even said the word AIDS in the movie, they just implied that the gay choreographer in the movie was HIV+ because he had these huge bottles of pills and water by him the whole time, and then at the end of the movie the little kid was wearing a shirt that said "cheerleading=death". I just thought both scenes were unnecessary and were trying to slyly poke fun at AIDS. So, maybe I'm being ultra-sensitive, but if anyone has seen the movie tell me what you think. Take care!
