Because Maybe You’re Just Dumb
First, mainland China banned Brokeback Mountain from their theaters. Then, Turkey prohibited all viewers under age 18 from viewing the film. Now, tourist-attraction Bahamas has banned the movie from all theaters in the islands of the Bahamas. The Plays and Films Control Board in the Bahamas said the film “shows extreme homosexuality, nudity and profanity and has no value for the Bahamian public.” Will someone please tell me what “extreme homosexuality” is? Brokeback Mountain has received numerous awards, including three Oscars. Censorship assumes adults cannot make educated choices regarding what they want to see.

Busta a Busted Homophobe?
If you detest black folks you’re not likely to be found dining at Sylvia’s in New York City. If the thought of hangin’ with Asians disgusts you, you may want to steer clear of Chinese restaurants. So, why was Busta Rhymes said to have gone off on a gay man who tapped his shoulder to congratulate him while he was dining with two of his bodyguards at the 11th Street Diner in Miami Beach? The eyewitness who reported the alleged incident says Busta was dining at the diner, located steps from gay club Twist, when a gay man dining at the establishment approached Busta to congratulate him on his comeback venture. When he tapped Rhymes, the artist turned around and said, “Why the fuck you touchin’ me man? Get the fuck away from me?” It was then that Rhymes bodyguards allegedly shoved the man back. Busta was then said to say, “I hate fuckin’ faggots man!” Oddly, the diner was packed with gays and transvestites who frequent the diner after visiting the gay nightclubs. Ironically, Rhymes was caught-up in rumors alleging he had gay interactions in the past.
