For Hollywood to start portraying queers correctly they will need to start using toilet cams.

The Holllywood homosexual is an American icon.

Their girlish screams and constant complaints has charmed and delighted many a generation of movie goers over the years.

Homosexual actors are way over represented in film and television.
The movies "Milk" and "Brokeback Mountain" were bombs according to receipts, why would they want to make more losers? No one wants to see them except for maybe half of the very small gay population.

You need to back up your facts. Brokeback, for example, exceeded the dollar receipts of all other contenders in the 2005 Academy Best Picture race, and came in 22nd out of 100 films that year.(All the other Best Picture nominees were lower on the receipts scale.)

You're closer with Milk, that finished 89th in 2008. But it still managed to beat out one other Best Picture contender in receipts.(Slumdog Millionaire won that year.)

If two films were made and one took in $1 billion and the other took in $83 million the second film would still be ranked second. Brokeback Mountain took in $83 million. That's not a raging success. Awards don't pay the bills.

"Bones" is now on my do not watch list. In one episode, the Amerasian girl, Michaela Conlin, said she has a relationship with a girl in college. Okay. Today it was about 2 gay football players. They went over and above the call of duty to say how gays were revered in some societies and a bunch of other nonsense. Key word 'were.' Sell it to someone else.
