While tens of thousands of people in France were protesting in the streets against same-sex marriage, a lesbian love story by French director Abdellatif Kechiche won the top prize in Cannes on Sunday. Reports Reuters: “The film festival’s director immediately urged the large crowds protesting against gay marriage in Paris to go and see it.”

I was wondering the other day about homophobic people around the world: is it possible they are more opposed to male same-sex relationships  than they are about female same-sex relationships? I mean, a lot of hetero guys get off on seeing two females making love in blue movies. But I doubt they would even consider watching two men going at it in a movie?

I wonder if the demos in France are really more about opposition to male same-sex marriage?
