it’s not his fault, it’s the people around him. people who don’t think wide enough. am a straight person but i can say that i fell inlove with the film. there’s nothing wrong about portraying “gay” in a wide screen.

As a young girl I, loved horses,I considered myself a cowgirl. I rode in horseshows, and when I was 12yrs.old I rented out my stalls, to a race horse and a show horse. I was very upset as Heath Ledger played the role of a fake homosexaul cowboy. I
alway wondered if he tought of his daughter and wondered what she would think of him. Maybe this caused his great tourment of his soul. One wonders if this could have contributed to his early death. I have great missgivings of how a young man could take such a role, going against the grains of human decency, to play such a depraved role, but then again women do it in porn. Giving up their core, of decency for the greed of fortune and fame. They curse their souls, no wonder they need so many drugs and can’t seem to sleep in peace. Death might be the ultimate solution.
