Let’s discuss the gay scene. Homophobic? (Spoilers)

So as you know, the doctor is arrested in a bath house, buck naked, with a skinny white man, chained to the water pipes and forced to sit down.

Our hero bribes him out of it.

I’m not gay, but I thought about it and realised that it’s actually a very homophobic scene.

Mr perfect is arrested doing something lewd. It’s not homosexuality presented in any positive light, it’s more degenerate, and shameful, and degrading.

The scene sort of says that everybody has their flaws, and therefore, homosexuality is presented as a flaw to the public. Without our hero, he’d be doing time for homosexual acts with a white man. Career over.
