    I've always heard comments like "what are you, Lawrence of Arabia?"

    so I'm starting to watch the film now. That's all I've got so far.

    "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" is a good read. It'll learn you about Bedouin life and British colonial muckery in pre-nationalized Saudi Arabia as well as introduce you to the phrase "raddled meats".

    The impression of gayness will only get stronger as you watch the movie. What's his face, Peter O'Toole who plays Lawrence is gross, and gives a lot of his characters a homoerotic air, but I guess some people thought TE Lawrence actually was gay due to what he wrote about his experience of being raped and all.

    Pete-O further gays that role up because he himself is queer as a football bat.

    One of the best examples of a LIE you could find in history.

    I don't know a lot on the subject, but I know ignorant played-out stereotyping when I see it. Not directed at you or anything.
