It's astonishing that someone in this thread is referencing John Stuart Mill. You all see yourselves as great defenders of free speech and yet you are outraged that someone dared to make a movie with girls in it and you oppose its very right to exist.

Typical reactionary right wing posturing.

I am not offended. I am disgusted by your flagrant lack of moral integrity.

If I remember rightly josephk did his goodbyes from BA some years ago over some long forgotten matter and then came back again.
I would've thought any member on this site does have an interest in BOY actors in BOY films and even 'lust' after them on occasion as josephk puts it. I certainly had a 'crush' on Jeremy Sumpter when he was in 'Peter Pan'. Going around calling members idiots because they have a different opinion about things is pretty intolerant.
diogenes puts it very well in his argument about liberalism. We are becoming so politically correct that you hardly feel free to comment on anything that is not the mainstream opinion.
I think making a film like Lord of the Flies with girls is silly, much better would've been to make it with girls AND boys if you have to alter the plot at all.    Shocked

The people who angrily announce they are leaving then keep coming back to read and respond to the replies always give me a laugh. Clearly, no one on the board is a Nazi or  otherwise resembles the nasty claims made. If you don't want to discuss the issue, why bring it up? I think most on this thread would agree that the complaints about this adaptation aren't that significant in isolation. But if you look at the cultural climate that is producing things like this, the problem becomes clear, as was eloquently noted by diogenes. It's not really even a left-right issue.

Well, I guess we'll have to wait and see how long josephk stays away THIS time!

Just to set the record straight: The reason for me to not like the idea of LOTF being filmed with all Girls, is first, the film would most likely be an absolutely non-nude film, I'm not saying that girls, in a similar situation wouldn't run the island naked, I am saying that the people producing the film wouldn't allow the nudity in the film. it isn't the girls I'm objecting to, it is a certain group of people that would be 'afraid they might offend someone.'.

He won't be back. He said he wanted to burn his bridges - well he's done that.

My criticism of a "female" Lord of the Flies is that it wouldn't be Lord of the Flies. If they want to make a film about a group of girls who are marooned on a deserted island and descend into savagery, then fine. But don't pretend it is Lord of the Flies - come up with an original story.

I feel he would be AS welcome here as anyone else, but not his harsh critisms, makes me wonder how he was raised.

I do hope you are right bout him not returning, I was looking through the BA Archives and found some of the arguments he got into with other members, it would have been better if he had stayed away permanently the first time he left.

You misunderstand me. There's nothing to hope about - he won't be back because he can't come back.

Thanks, I thought that was it, but wasn't sure, will his profile be terminated?
