      Leave it to Hollywood to take an historical event/people (the Sacred Band of Thebes; the 300) and make the 300 heroes (who were 150 gay male couples) hyper-masculine and hyper-heterosexual while portraying the leader of the villains a mincing, prancing drag queen.

      And people wonder why we need Gay Pride and Gay History Month. Our history is denied, ignored or rewritten to make us the villains. Most gay people don’t even know the story of the Sacred Band of Thebes and even if they are aware of them they believe the Hollywood version instead of the historical version.

      @Zekester: I need to point out that even though you’re right about this movie being a typical Hollywood rewrite of actual historical facts, you’re wrong about the “plot” of this movie.

      It deals with the Battle of Salamis where the Athenian navy and allies fought against the Persian fleet, not the Battle of Chaeronea, where Philip II of Macedon established his hegemony over the Greek city-states.

      The 300 referred to are the Spartans who died at Thermopylae, not the Sacred Band of Thebes.
