queer considerations

something to think about, inspired by my queer film class:

heterocentrism.  an example of this is when you go to a movie and leave wishing there had been more gay characters [i do this often]..but then later realizing that maybe only one or two of the characters actually said something about being in a relationship with the opposite sex.
why do we assume characters in films are straight, unless they outright declare [through words or mannerisms or style] that they are queer?
