I'm a little confused as to how a movie about a terribly disfunctional lesbian couple will encourage people to be more open minded about same-sex relatiosnhips.

I don't know...... When "Roseanne" was on, it showed how dysfunctional her family was and how everyone around her was the same way and people seem to understand because they could identify. Not every family is "picture perfect". Same sex couples with children are no different. Anyone that tells me their family is "perfect in every way" is feeding me a line. There is some level of dysfunction in every family, even the family that is headed by two gay men or two lesbians.

The dysfuntionality showed that they are just like anyone else (which is one of our messages, yes?) and that, in the end, they were able to work past a serious issue and seemingly patch things up. It points out that relationships take work and that complacency is just as much to blame for infidelity and other problems as the transgressors are.
