Is homosexuality a choice? •Often need to come out to parents •Government wants to restrict their rights. X-Men The Last Stand – the government actively tries to “cure” the mutants of their sickness. Should we get rid of the “gay gene?” •People are afraid of what they don’t know (this also ties into racism, etc).
