the brokeback theory

brokeback mountain destroys the white male's last bastion of masculinity, the cowboy. if you were to ask any male over the age of 50 what picture pops up in his head as heterosexual masculinity at it's peak you'd hear things like john wanye and clint eastwood characters'. they'd tell you of watching some movie in the theater where the main characters rode off into the sunset with his trusted companion. with the introduction of brokeback mountain one can no longer assume that the hero cowboy and his companion's sunset trips to the wild, for months at a time, allot that they're only riding horses.
