Whenever you discuss homosexuality and its effects on society, you will draw intense hatred from (1) those who hate gays and want everyone else to hate them too, and (2) militant gays who demand complete acceptance and celebration of their lifestyle. I am somewhere in the middle, drawing ire from both of these extremes. While recognizing that many worthwhile human beings are gay and should not be persecuted for it, I also recognize that gayness is not a desirable condition, and that most heterosexuals find overtly gay behavior disgusting and unnatural. Therefore, films like "Brokeback Mountain" will be not be seen by a majority of the movie-going public...me included.
A few months ago I dissected Jim Carrey's homosexual film, "I Love You Philip Morris." As a straight man, I found the film disgusting and said so. Even more disgusting was that the film was packaged and marketed as a comedy, which it clearly was not.
Today I have an "anonymous" (aren't they always) gay reader take me to task for my attitude. His comment and my reply can be read at this link.
