Newsweek: Only Red-State men are evil homophobes

According to Newsweek, Brokeback Mountain is a hit with Red-State women.

Does this suprise anyone? The movie combines two things women love: gay guys and hunky young men.

Of course many of them are complaining that they cannot seem to get their husbands to go see this film where two straight actors looking for awards take on roles where they run the serious risk of being called brave.

Will the WordBearer see this film? Nope. Not because I am homophobic, but because I do not like chick-flicks. Even the allure of a naked Anne Hathaway coud not lure me into a theater showing Brokeback Mountain.

I still see this movie, no matter what the directors and actors say, as a way to push a certain lifestyle on the American people.

It does not suprise me that it is winning awards. Hollywood always wants to pretend it is standing up for the oppressed.

Want to make a good movie about modern day discrimination, bigotry, and persecution? Make one about what it is like to be a young conservative on an American campus.

Word of advice, if you want to get men to see a movie about a tragic gay love affair, the protagonists better be women. How about a lesbian cowgirl movie? We could call it "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?"

Seriously, how many women would agree to go see such a movie with their husbands?
