    Ferniedog2u I 100% agree with you on what you had to say. People who stand out are more remembered than the ones who don't. Harvey Milk had a voice and he used it to stand up to every one, to fight for what he believed in and went place no one thought homosexuals should go or could go. This movie showed and proved that homosexuals are just like every one else just with a different sexual preference. It's sad that he dies in the end but he died standing up for what he believed in. It's because of people like him that give us courage to stand up for things we believe in. Sean Penn is a terrific actor and he did excellent in this movie. It is sad that people didn't like it, but I guess that just means they don't have feelings. And mikemo34 you said it so well. It is sad how F***ed this country is but Homosexuals should get the same respect as the rest of the population does. No one deserves to be treated badly just because they have a different sexual preference than you. And another thing Homosexuals are even sometimes, no make that a lot of times even nicer than most people are, so we need to treat them with respect just like you would any one else you care about or are friends with.

    Very well done movie, but over-rated. Homosexuals get a raw deal in most countries, severely so in Muslim countries. This film exploits that theme.
