Because then you would be a toad just like them attempting to make a spectacle out of themselves .Bad behavior like that is just an juvenile display to get attention. It's a wonder they didn't lie down,kick their feet,scream and pitch a tantrum.

And let all people learn to behave themselves in public.Being in public with offensive clothing and walking around with your butt crack,nipples,and genitals well outlined just isn't socially acceptable mature behavior. It's more like screaming "look at me,look at me,come on someone, LOOK AT ME!!!!!

You have a equal right not to push something offensive on the public. If the park person didn't think it was ok, they would not have asked them to turn it inside out. The park has the right to refuse service and escort your rude butt to the nearest exit. Two people vs. hundreds is not a hard choice to make.

they got the attention they were seeking.

everyone has a right to their own lifestyle. the problem comes when they wear it out there on their sleeve like a chip on their shoulder.

Saw a late night public service announcement recently where the message was "don't say that's so gay, do you know what you're saying?" Apparently if a straight person says "that's so gay", it's offense speech; but, if a gay person says something is gay, it's free speech.

Very valid point. Do not think that was an appropriate shirt because it does imply a double-standard. If a young child saw the t-shirt, would they think it was ok to say something is so gay??
I do not have an issue with a gay person's rights but straight or gay, at least have the decency to wear clothing that does not have degrading messages like this one did. I do not like seeing shirts in family public places with curse words or other obscenity because it does give the wrong message to children.

I do think the shirt was degrading & demeaning gay rights and it should not have been worn to a family oriented place. Now, if they were going to a club would not be such an issue and there is a time and place for everything.

I do have many friends that are gay and they would never wear a t-shirt like that. It cheapens the gay rights message and causes silly controversies like this one. I think they just wanted to cause drama and all it has done nothing good.
