Star Wars: Clone Wars gay-coded character Ziro the Hutt is asexual. Director: Ziro, Jabba’s uncle, originally spoke in Hutt-ese, like Jabba and then he had a different sluggish voice just like Jabba, and then George one day was watching it and said ‘I want him to sound like Truman Capote.’ He actually said that and we were like ‘Wow!’...He’s of questionable [sexuality] at least as a slug. They tell me that these slugs can be either male or female depending. That’s something I guess that slugs and snails do. I wasn’t aware of that but I have continuity experts that tell me these things and I’m like. I guess Jabba is [his son’s] mother AND father from a certain point of view. It’s interesting.”

Court reinstates dismissed discrimination case by former employee of Merrill Lynch over supervisor's "stupid fag" slur: "On the hostile workplace claim, the appeals court said Taylor's holding -- that a single comment may be severe enough to create a hostile workplace -- applies regardless of who made the comment. 'The fact that it was made by plaintiff's immediate supervisor should be enough because, as Taylor itself noted, a supervisor is someone who should be protecting the employee from such conduct in the workplace,' they wrote. They noted that even before the 'stupid fag' remark was allegedly made, Wonder had been verbally critical of Kwiatkowski's performance. 'At the very least, plaintiff would have had genuine reason to question Wonder every time she criticized his work and evaluated his performance, and to wonder whether the criticism was valid or instead was generated by her bias against gay men,' they observed."
