Quick transcript for anyone curious about the asexuality mention in the new trailer for “The Boss”
Starts at approximately 20 seconds in. Bell’s character is some kind of hardworking underling for McCarthy, who appears to be her obnoxious and flamboyant boss (who then gets arrested and goes bankrupt because of insider training, and then apparently crashes on Bell’s couch and decides to start over by making over Bell’s daughter’s pesudo girl-scout troop into a cuthroat business empire).
Bell: I run your operation, while being a single mom! I deserve a pay raise.
McCarthy: You have a child?
McCarthy: Is that through intercourse?
McCarthy: I usually get kind of an asexual vibe…
Random Dude: I never pictured her with genitals, myself.
Bell: *offended gasp*
…and that’s the end of that. Doesn’t really look like they’re going for the actual ace representation angle. (The trailer also follows it up with some ‘lol lesbians’ jokes about a minute later).
I guess we’re mainstream enough now to be used as fodder for dumb comedy?
