Well crap! Guess it's back to the emo "woe is us, for we are so persecuted" angst-festing...
Do people not know how involved he was with the previous movie, or do they just like to pretend he wasn't there?
If he was involved, at least his influence was kept at bay, because we got an X-men film that was true to the concept AND a good superhero movie at the same time, as opposed to 1, 2, and much of 3 where it was all about Singer's stupid "mutant=gays" moralizing.
You do realize that many writers of the X-Men have actually stated that the way Mutants must hide who and what they are can be modern parallels to gays. Including the writer who wrote more episodes of the X-Men then any other. Now that isn't to say that it can't be used for other parallels (they used other parallels in the mid sixties), but again many a writer has out and out stated that it is used as a parallel to any culture or group that has to hide from the public and behave in a way that is counter to their nature. And that absolutely includes gays and lesbians.

And I think Claremont might, just have a little better understanding on that then the public.

So exactly what concept was wrong?
