Dil and Fergus are caught in the same crisis of identity. One's political, the other's sexual. To me the center of the film is the humanity of Fergus and not the sexuality of Dil. Fergus is trapped in a political ideology that is restrictive and immasculates his internal human core. The issue is not whether we seek solace in going to bed with someone of the same or opposite sex be they in the same boat as us or not but whether we can go to bed at night with ourself knowing that we have held true to our beliefs and not compromised ourself to a more powerful restrictive order. One can run on and on about this much like the Crying Game does and much like the previous discussion on it.
