Was Marty Coleslaw Gay?


There is a scene in the movie where Marty (Corey Feldman) is seen sitting at the side of a baseball field and seems to be checking out other boys, especially their legs. Is Marty a leg man? Why was he checking out "boy ass"? Can anyone shed light on this issue?

par·a·ple·gi·a  (pr-plj-, -j)
n.
Complete paralysis of the lower half of the body including both legs, usually caused by damage to the spinal cord.

And you jump to the conclusion a boy that can't use his legs sitting being jealous those who can is gay. Are you jealous of people that use their head for more than a hat rack?

To neo71665 -

I sometimes bristle a bit when one poster "slams" another. But your response to the OP - Absolutely Brilliant!!! Just finished watching this on AMC 10 minutes ago - and didn't even focus on the scene the OP was talking about - much less ever think about Marty being gay. Seems like that label gets thrown around almost aimlessly and for the hell of it. Marty just seemed like a maybe-too-brave young boy to me...

I still think he was gay, however we will never know now that corey feldman has passed.

reply

MrT1979, good one. You did get a few responses thinking you're serious.

reply

Hey, get real. Marty wanted his legs to work. And the actor was Corey Haim, not Feldman.

reply

Marty was played by Corey Haim, not Corey Feldman.

I don't think he was gay. He was just watching the other kids play baseball.

reply

he was looking at the boys legs wishing he could move his legs like them as he was stuck in a wheelchair. why do people always think there is a gay connection to everything these days?

reply

he was looking at those legs, i think at one point feldman licked his lips and flicked his tongue in a provocative manner. This to me suggests he was likely gay, an interesting sub plot for a vampire flick don't you agree?

reply


Hehe....No I don't think he was gay-watching, but he might find it annoying that you called him 'Coleslaw'.

I think it was bold of dino de laurentis to portray marty as a gay wheelchair bound youngster, its a bold move for a werewolf flick to takle young angst like this. I think he was also into his friend brady.
This is utter claptrap. There is no indication that Marty was gay.

You however are a troll.

reply

What about when marty flicked his tounge at brady early on in the movie when they are fooling around with the snake.

In my DVD, which I just watched, he did not do this. Besides, even if he did, (he didn't, but purely for the sake of argument assume that he did) it does not mean that he is gay.

reply

you have it on DVD, but you clearly dont have the directors cut, in this there are several extra scenes including the tounge flciking scene, also there is a scene with uncle red fighting the cheif of police. The other one that springs to mind is when marty and the silver bullet skim cross a shallow lake as the werewolf is in hot pursuit, i think they removed this from the origianl as it was deemed to far fetched?

Agreed. There are other films where some insist on seeing some of the main characters as gay as well. One film in particular, has one poster whom I consider to be a troll, who absolutely insists that some sweet, cozy shower between a grown man and a little boy was filmed. This guy also sees many other scenes in that film that supposedly have 'gay' overtones as well.

My policy is to ignore almost all such posts and posters.
