Weren't those "fashion tips" from DVDTalkers? Specifically complaints about the small 'S' shield, the boots, and red being swapped out for maroon. But I don't remember people here saying he looked gay.
I do remember LGBT magazine The Advocate having a picture of Superman Returns on their cover, with the caption, "How gay is Superman?"

Just anecdotal observation from around the Interwebz... and how methinks they dost protest too much, both then and now.

All of the other woman are too short and in the case of Melissa McCarthy too fat to ever do such a job. I'll post more later.
Belated Bad news: I talked to a librarian over the weekend and some of the money from the rentals does go to studios. So you put a small amount of cash into the Ghostbusters’ coffers.

Welcome to the team!

I am closing this thread for now. There is no purpose to dredge all this up again.
