71 <div class="entry-content"><p>Ever since I watched the first half of this <a href="http://www.outlookindia.com/showtime.asp?fodname=20040628">disgusting movie</a>, I have wondered why a lesbian&#8217;s/gay&#8217;s preferences need to be explained with a reason, as if they became lesbian/gay because they had <i>no other choice</i>. Even the movie <a href="http://imdb.com/title/tt0116308/">Fire</a> had to explain the lesbian relationship shared by Sita and Radha due to the loveless relationship they share with their respective husbands. And girlfriend takes the cake for outrageous &#8220;justification&#8221; for Tanya&#8217;s &#8220;strange&#8221; liking for women. Apparently, she was abused as a child and hence her dislike for men and consequent love for women! And this is a reason which most of my friends agree with! Why should you look upon lesbians and gays as creatures deserving pity? Imagine the consequences for gay/lesbian rights when they are shown in this light!</p>
72
73 <p>Why do Indian movies depict lesbian/gay relationships as if there was &#8220;no other choice&#8221;? Isn&#8217;t it always <i>by choice</i>? In this context I think <a href="http://www.outlookindia.com/showtime.asp?fodname=20040119">Chameli</a> and <a href="http://www.indiafm.com/reviews/03/rules/index.shtml">Rules</a> should be given a standing ovation for correctly dealing with non-hetro sexual relationships.</p>
