Milk is a great movie and Penn is great in it.
It should remind gay people that rights are taken, earned and fought for. And that you just can't wait around until they are handed to you on a silver platter.
Prop 8 proves that bigots will use any means possible to keep civil rights for themselves and make a mockery of the Declaration of Independence's cry for equality.
Perhaps if gay people could get married and actually live happily (emotionally, economically and legally) ever after, gay oscar worthy gay characters could live to see the sequel.

I await the day when gay characters are shown as happy and normal and part of families, like mine! I'm glad Hollywood has recognized the gay community, but now its time to show the other side- living happy productive lives.
