a very large penis is featured onscreen for an extended, unflinching period of time, as a plot point. rome rocks. i wonder how they cast the part. no pun intended.
"large penis is always welcome."

sigh. that's always been the case hasn't it? 'if you act like us, we'll treat you like us': a rhetoric that has existed since the beginning of culture, an attitude of 'assimilate for acceptance.' i suppose it's a step - there was a time when a gay kid would be ostracised whether he was effeminate or not.
