I enjoyed your report and couldn't agree more. While viewing the movie X-Men, I found a lot of similarities between the events in the movie and those in our society.
One great example of this is when the son tells parents that he is a mutant, and he explains that he didn't choose to be a mutant; he was born that way. This is also the way many homosexuals come out to their parents in our society today: having to say that their sexul orientation isn't a choice, but a part of who they really are.
The movie also shows that without the help of non-mutant allies, peace would be difficult to gain. And, in our society, it would be hard for women to finally gain their desrved rights without the help of men, African Americans without the help of Caucasians, homosexuals without the help of heterosexuals, Jews without the help of Gentiles, and so on.
It is good to know that there are those out there who can see the positive message in a movie, especially one that is not always seen for the purpose of learning something. Good report.
