I have to say I am genuinely surprised about the content of that article. Usually Brian Ashcraft writes extremely homophobic and especially transphobic comments when given an opportunity. In this one he only goes as far as to brushing off the concerns of the gay community in Japan as trivial because as he reasons "like many comedies, it plays on stereotypes."
