Obviously, if it was about an interior designer and an air steward, that would be an 'angle' also.

An obsessed narrow view...

Cowboys=beautiful setting and hotness. Maybe that's why the author chose cowboys. Surely there must be some real gay cowboys somewhere.

Men shouldn't be treated as sex objects.

By making them 'macho' cowboys, it creates an extra layer of conflict and a more interesting story arc. Drama! I cant imagine why they would want to make the movie interesting...

Nah. They just want to make macho men think they could be gay. Or force us to accept two gay men who are still "macho"-whatever that is anymore.

Yikes.

First, all art makes some kind of statement. That's what artists do.

Second, do any of you have any idea what generated the original short story by Annie Proulx?

Theres a difference in making a statement and having an agenda. I agree that its silly to think that Brokeback Mountain is just a love story. I'd like to think that there was some thought that went into making the leads gay beyond "oh....just because". but to imply an agenda goes a little beyond making a statement

Just because Jesus said it doesn't make it true.

it's impossible to get an accurate quote off the president, i hardly think we're going to get accurate quotes from jeebus.
