Fandom: Brokeback Mountain

Utah theater abruptly cancels 'Brokeback Mountain' from their showings, as the claims are because the movie is too controversial. While the manager of the megaplex refuses to comment on their reasonings why, the president of the conservative Utah Eagle Forum says "not showing the film set an example for the people of Utah" and that it "tells the young people especially that maybe there is something wrong with this show."

This is majorly disappointing. If Brokeback Mountain isn't your cup of tea, than by all means don't see it in theaters. However, taking that priviledge away from folks that may or definitely want to see it is uncalled for. Unfortunately, that's the world we live in. For shame, you he chusheng zajiao de zanghuo!

And it's also disheartening because it's not being shown in any of the cinemas around my area; I'll have to travel miles to the closest theater that will have BBM showing. It's a shame, really.

* He chusheng zajiao de zanghuo translates to: "filthy fornicators of livestock" in Mandarin Chinese.
