That is how the most self-righteously moralistic movie to hit the big screen since "Forrest Gump" preaches an undeniable Hollywood truth: Men, and boys who will be men, are not just bad. They're corrupt, amoral horndogs.

And women, especially neurotic, lesbian mommies who drive Volvos, watch gay male porn (go figure!) and get plastered before lunch, are perfect

Haven't watched the movie (and maybe i shouldn't reply until i do). But it seems like the writer is making a bigger deal out of it then what it is. I don't think "Hollywood" is saying that gays are more moral and right then heterosexuals, specifically heterosexual males. Maybe they are just trying to make the point that homosexuals can be moral or as moral as heterosexuals. I think it's to break the stereotypes.

I mean seriously lets look at most movies that come out of Hollywood. Many of them star white heterosexual males as the protagonist. Why is it when a movie comes out that doesn't fall into the standard norm conservatives get their panties all in a wade?

"Hollywood has set the stage for the gay agenda, nothing new," said Laura Bailey, Brooklyn mom of two boys. "Why do you think they did propaganda films in the 1940s? They're setting the new norm."

"The movie industry is doing its best to undermine the American family," said Patricia Whitehead, Connecticut mom of two girls. "Hollywood -- we don't care about the sick lives you lead behind closed doors. Just don't bring children into it."

Hollywood thinks only about eyeballs and wallets.
What's interesting is the "liberal" Hwood has a bad track record of minorities in leading Oscar winning roles.
Contrast that with the neat insight Steve Byrne has in his comedy show about the % of blacks vs latino's and yet those #'s dont' get reflected in hollywood and tv.
Just interesting.

Sex is considered evil by pretty much everyone raised in a Judeo-Christian home.

Sex with things you're not supposed to find attractive is just kicking it up a notch.

Is sex evil? Of course not. But there will always be the casting of lust as some depraved, animalistic tendency that everyone is ashamed of.

it's amazing how upset people still get over a movie that portrays gay people positively.
