Update on “The Boss”

Remember when I mentioned the (not very positive) asexuality reference in the trailer for “The Boss”?

Someone mentioned to me that it had been changed since then, so I finally went and checked the most recent trailer and indeed, though it includes the same opening scenes, the asexuality/no genitals reference has been removed, and the dialogue has been changed to a different crude joke about their disbelief that anyone would want to have sex with her (as opposed to a disbelief that she would/could have sex). The rest of that particular scene remains the same.

(The lesbian joke also remains unchanged)

It’s sort of interesting to see that, given that this particular instance didn’t seem to raise much fuss in the ace community – makes me wonder what motivated them to change it.
