Not like they don't know what it's all about

A Massachussetts correctional officer was reprimanded for showing inmates Brokeback Mountain.
Massachusetts Department of Correction spokeswoman Diane Wiffin said Saturday that the action was not related to the critically acclaimed film's plot involving a gay love affair.

"It was not the subject matter. It was the graphic nature of sexually explicit scenes," Wiffin said.

She said the officer, whom she declined to identify, failed to follow prison guidelines that require staff who schedule films to review them in advance for excessive violence, nudity or sex, as well as scenes involving assaults on correctional staff.

Yeah, right. The sex in Brokeback is really not that explicit, so give me a break.
