The beginnings of what may become an interesting exchange on utube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUp5sq5Ror0

I might try to think up a contribution, Andy.

I wonder if the person you are having the exchange with has even seen the movie?

That thought did cross my mind though I'm not sure whether I feel like taking anyone on, utubers being what they are.

Personally, I haven't watched that video.  I do agree with what other people have said about not debating with YouTube members. I mean no offense when I say this, but debates on YouTube just don't seem to go anywhere, but they do seem to give you an annoying headache. Heck, you would probably have more success with trying to knock down a brick wall with your head, then get your fellow debater to consider your point of view. If this person didn't watch "Brokeback Mountain", then what would be the point of making a comment about it in an online video? The person who made the video is entitled to express their views, but their analysis of the film probably wouldn't make much sense if they haven't watched it.
