NBC's Today Reviews Brokeback Mountain: Labels Character Predator

From Pam's House Blend and GLAAD

Gene Shalit of the Today show offered a strange review of Brokeback Mountain, characterizing Jake Gyllenhaal's character as a sexual predator because he's gay.  He dredges up a classic predator/victim gay stereotype that indicates, IMHO, that Shalit was uncomfortable with the movie. 

Homophobic?  Yes.  Should GLAAD have called him out on it?  Yes.  That's what they do.  Did I write a note to NBC?  Yes. 

Then let it go.
