Man-BOY love, yes -- historical accuracy and child pornography being occasionally conflicting categories. But man-man love -- well, in the case of things like ancient Greek warrior culture, it's a shame not to show what was an important part of the social side of things.

it's based off the 300 graphic novel by Frank Miller, which kicks ass. It is actually - supposedly- very well researched and historically accurate. Ed, there are several man-love-man and boy-love references in the book. In fact, much of the Spartan army fights naked apart from red cloaks and shin guards.

I don't really care much myself, but I don't want to have to explain all the weiners to my 8 year old when his older brother invariably shows it to him to see his reaction.

Looks very nifty. I remember the book was very epic. This movie looks to do the tale justice

It's not that complicated, Ed: you say they fought naked, because they were poor, and were fighting the other guys for clothing. In fact, that's what the war is about: the scarcity of resources -- clothing, in this case.
