HTMNDN - the gay stuff was in the original book. they actually cut a gay hand job scene from the first part of the book out in part 1.
its kings book he wrote it that way.
the gay stuff was in there back in 1986 when it came out. and he was working on it for a few year prior so you are just now watching a movie that seems to be sjw but is actually over 35 years old.
What would be really fucked up is if Pennywise were gay...
