Brett Ratner

I'm Full-On Behind

A Lesbian!

Director Brett Ratner has put his money where his mouth is -- on a lesbian. 

You'll recall, Ratner had to resign from producing the 2011 Academy Awards, after proclaiming "Rehearsals are for f*gs." 

Ratner -- who's directed a slew of films including "Rush Hour" and "X-Men" -- has done a 180, raising $28,400 for Christine Quinn, an openly gay woman running for Mayor of NYC.

As for City Council member Quinn ... she told the NY Post she holds no grudges -- "What Brett Ratner said when he was preparing for the Academy Awards was completely unacceptable. [But] he went about fixing it and making it better and making sure he never does that again."

Oh, that Brett Ratner, from Olivia Munn's book, "Suck it Wonder Woman", that sat in his trailer, naked, eating shrimp.

So what he said is cool... and Alec Baldwin continues to be the poster child for the liberal party... but we have to drop Paula Deen like a hot potato.

Correction, TMZ: Ratner directed "X-Men: The Last Stand", not "X-Men".

This is a pretty important distinction, given there's a HUGE difference between those two - "Stand" being an overall piece of sh*t, and the first movie being a genuine classy.

The TMZ staff is full of goofballs. None of them appear to be always politically correct. Why are these people writing about celebrities, holding them to such high standards? If every single one of us were judged by the stupid things that come out of our mouths when we're angry. drunk, or just with friends talking trash, no one would be able to hold a job. This country is so psychologically distorted, its really sad.

Being a film maker, if he really cared about lesbians he'd make a lesbo porn movie.

It's funny how $28,400 can all of a sudden make someone acceptable.

So basically he bowed down to the f&g nazis. He shouldn't have. These people are sick and need some serious help. Obviously their behavior is UNNATURAL!

Christine Quinn is a bush pig. Regardless if sexual orientation she is a horrible individual and will do nothing but ruin NYC if elected.

If he had said "rehearsals are for wussies," that would've been ok, right? And we know that is what he meant, right, that he wasn't trying to say that rehearsals are for homosexuals? The language police are ridiculous and don't consider the actual intent behind words. I think just about every time I've personally heard someone say "***," they meant wussy and nothing regarding homosexuality. Intent should matter.

But is he behind her because she's a lesbian or because of her politics?
