Sad - the murder, the pelted rocks, the hatred/misunderstanding. What you mentioned of the reaction to Brokeback made me think of the burning of theatres in India for Deepa Mehta's film, "Fire".

Most people are uncomfortable with others who are different from them physically, mentally, etc. Someone who dresses differently is considered eccentric, oldfashioned or countrified. On the other hand we all want to be recognized as unique individuals. We can't be unique and generic at the same time. Until there is deep, true self-acceptance bigotry and hatred will continue to rare their ugly heads. Teach the babies to love themselves warts and all, then they will love others warts and all.
