We're now suing for defamation of ancient historical figures? This has got to be the most absurd thing I read in long time.
A group of 25 lawyers in Greece has reportedly threatened to sue film studio Warner Brothers and director Oliver Stone for suggesting that the title ruler was bisexual.

Who the hell gives a shit if he was gay or not? What on earth would be the point of such a lawsuit?

It seems more and more, people think they have a constitutional right not to be offended. Where does that mentality come from? You're not going to like everyone around you and you're not going to like everything they have to say--get over it. Just as you have a right to have a hissy fit when someone calls your favorite ancient emperor a fag, they have a right to call him such--or at least they should in any freedom-loving society. This whole issue would be funny if it weren't so scary.
