Disclaimer: I haven't seen this movie yet but I thought I'd take this opportunity to share my opinion on homophobia.
First, straight people need to understand that being gay is not a choice. To think otherwise is pure ignorance, because logic dictates that if being gay is a conscience decision than so is having a hetero lifestyle. Secondly, scientific research is proving that being gay is integral with a persons genetic makeup more and more with time.
I believe a lot of homophobia comes from the various religions because they like to teach this BS about "choice" while ignoring science, thus hypocritically acknowledging that their all-loving "God hates fags!" From my view God made them that way and I dislike the notion of a God who likes to play sick and cruel jokes.
To all the homophobes I ask, can you seriously picture yourself enjoying sex with someone of your gender if it wasn't for your conscience decision not to? If so, I think you may be repressing your true sexual identity, and it's that internal struggle that makes you lash out at gays. Personally, I KNOW for a fact that I have no choice in the matter - I've been attracted to members of the opposite sex for as long as I can remember.
On a personal note...
I know what I'm talking about because I speak from personal experience. I have a sibling who's gay. And despite the same upbringing from our heterosexual parents lifestyle we both turned out differently. And wouldn't you know it, now that we're adults my sibling and their partner have two adopted kids who somehow managed to turn out straight, despite their parents homosexual lifestyle. Gee, what a surprise!
If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.
