Critic Review - UGO

As Tennessee Williams so often intimated, there's always something to prove down south - typically one's homoerotically-charged sense of manhood.

"As Tennessee Williams so often intimated, there's always something to prove down south - typically one's homoerotically-charged sense of manhood."

'Scuse me, but are you criticising the movie, or us Southerners? Because I gotta be honest, there could be a lot of Southerners - not just the ones who are out to prove their "homoerotically-charged sense of manhood" whom you claim are typical of the south, but people like my family, my friends, and the many (and yes, their are MANY) of the other kind, decent, hard-working, and good-hearted people who make up a geographic section of the United States about which you apparently believe that you can peg down in one broad, sweeping remark from a playwright from generations ago. Or maybe you've got a bit of an axe to grind from people who point out your brainfarts.

Well, just to be clear, I don't expect to influence your opinion one way or the other - if you can't get past the point of bigotry and stereotyping at this point in your life, then my resentful voice ain't gonna do nuthin' to sway you none, I reckon. However, if you do get a lot of people calling you names and saying ugly things about you, then your little quote about Southerners is one reason. Anyway, I just wanted to say my thing and I can go along with my day knowing I defended my roots... y'all.
