It's Vincenzo's turn to be the featured post in this week's Bloggers roundtable. He was going to write about the Oscars. Thank God he didn't. I have probably only seen one of the nominated movies. "Brokeback Mountain" is one I haven't seen and it has brought homosexuality into the mainstream spotlight. His chain of thought led him to write about how the gay community might not want the pressure of being associated with certain cultural icons. It's an unfortuanate phenomena that many minority groups face. If you're a (relatively) small group, the actions of a few in your group can easily represent the whole minority community in the eyes of the majority. Just ask Muslim Americans or even people who look Middle Eastern about that one.
Well, have a read and enjoy Vincenzo's post...
