Brokeback again...

After the whole controversy over Wal-Mart selling DVDs of Brokeback Mountain, the movie is in another controversy:
BBC NEWS | Entertainment | US prison bans gay cowboy movie: "A US prison officer is to be disciplined for showing the gay cowboy movie Brokeback Mountain to inmates.

Correctional authorities in Massachusetts said the film was unsuitable for a prison setting because of its 'sexually explicit scenes'.

A spokesman said the officer failed to follow guidelines requiring films to be vetted for violence, nudity or sex.

Brokeback Mountain is about two men who meet and fall in love while wrangling sheep in Wyoming in the 1960s.

'Graphic' scenes

'It was not the subject matter,' said Diane Wiffin, of the Massachusetts Department of Correction.

'It was the graphic nature of sexually explicit scenes.'"
People, it's a movie! Let it go, folks!
