Freedom of Expression-Stop meaningless Petitions sign now

To: Mitra Dunn and all others like you
Your petition calling for the boycott of the movie 300 opening on March 9th in theatres all over the United States, is a futile attempt at drawing more attention to where attention is not needed. The movie is yes, based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller, and portrays the battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas and 300 Spartans fight against Xerxes and his Persian army. However that is why it is called a graphic Novel, it is an artistic interpretation of one man's view of an event that occurred in the history of civilization. If Frank Miller wanted to be truthful, the story wouldn't be a graphic novel and the movie would be called a Documentary.
As a Persian/Iranian (don't fool yourself people still know your Iranian even though you try to get by in life by calling yourself Persian) I am embarrassed that you would be wasting my time, inbox space and your own energy on such a futile attempt at drawing attention to what is in actually a piece of entertainment based on a novel that was purely for fictional enjoyment
Why don't you create a petition to fight against the injustice of HIV/AIDS in Africa, or Earthquake victims in Iran or Turkey, or perhaps even a petition on US injustices around the world in the name of terror, but wait, you wouldn't do that because it has nothing to do with how you may be presented in the world as an Iranian oops wait a Persian.

By all means continue to write contrite Petitions like this one, but take the trouble to actually study and do some research yourself before the next time you accuse a graphic novel of not being a historical document.

We, The Undersigned, consider the petition against 300 an outrage and would like to draw attention to close-minded petitions such as this that prevent expression, opinions and entertainment.

Sincerely,
