Re: “What movies can tell us about dying

"Will you stroke my hair while you do it?" Jaeckel jokes, a homophobic slur that also expresses the individualist family's contempt for altruism.

Are jokes about fatties fatophobic? Are jokes about Polish people polophobic?

What does phobia have to do with a joke or slur? Is 'idiot' a stupidophobic slur?

Homos act silly, so people make jokes about them. People make jokes and slurs about hillbillies too. Hillbillophobic?

Btw, the guy is a cousin, not brother.

Also, the Stampers are very altruistic within the clan. It's about familism than individualism. And they are toughest on themselves.
