A Psychosexual Interpretation of Star Wars

For the folks who thought I was going overboard when I found homosexual motifs in Lord of the Rings, here's a very funny analysis of the Star Wars saga:
By now, everyone's so familiar with the familiar song and dance about Star Wars being the Woodstock of our generation, about how Joseph Campbell and the power of myth powered the most comprehensive comparative religion fable rolled into one tell-all amazing sci-fi epic of epic proportions that you could probably just puke. The truth is, that crap just sells more tickets to pseudo-intellectuals who need to rationalize going for the eleventh time to see a movie about their most deeply rooted fear: impotence and premature ejaculation.
