When Same Sex Couples Kiss in Public

Oct 25, 2011 Read more: www.womanist-musings.com 232

Kissing, kissing, kissing, such a simple thing right? I mean, most couples do it and quite a few are quite willing to do it in public as well. Of course, we may roll our eyes over people who are outright tongue wrestling in the public street – but precious few of us complain about the odd peck. It's a very standard part of our view.

Well... except in same-sex couples. Then that can get you thrown out of pubs. It can get you kicked off planes. It can certainly get your head kicked in. A television programme with a same-sex kiss? Oh you're bound to get a gazillion complaints. How daaaare you. Even now there's yet another study on shoving our affection after the watershed to protect the delicate gazes of straight people.

I don't kiss Beloved outside the house. I want to, but I don't. It has become something hidden, something concealed. Something I have to restrict to behind close doors. In some ways, I have to treat kissing him as a sex act.

And the excuses we hear from those determined not to allow us this simplest act of affection.

“People complained” “People were offended.” “There are Children watching” “This is a family area”

Oh I love that protest. “We're not raging bigots – we just accede to their wishes!” Like that's even an excuse! Like that makes you one iota less of a homophobe!

Why does it offend people? Why must we protect the gaze of straight people from our affection? We see kisses all the time – do these people walk through life being permanently offended? Kissing is on every channel! In so many books, in so much media, in adverts!

I wonder why americans are so weird about sex. After all this is a country that thinks nothing of giving an 18 year old a gun and send them halfway around the world to slaughter other human beings. Very strange priorities!
You can join the U.S. military on your 17th birthday, and you do NOT have to be a citizen to join and be given a gun or other weapon.

THAT's DEMOCRACY !

Good!
We the people of the Gay Master Race have 2,615 ways to express intimate love; 82% of which can result in dramatic simultaneous orgasms that leave both partners in shock and gasping for air
.
The butt thing you're moaning about is #2,616; represents only 5% of our sex activity; and usually involves sex with a married straight man who can only get it from a gay guy. A woman doesn't have the tool to do it

I don't stare whether the couple is heterosexual or homosexual in the thros of passion. The difference is the heterosexual couple disgusts me, and I turn away. But the same-sex couple makes me nauseous with a simple glance.

I suggested a good psychiatrist to the idiot you are replying to, you could use one too... Irrational responses such as yours is a desperate cry for help.

No dear, I'm only insulting you and thus far you really haven't qualified in my eyes as human... Crestw00ds finest wrote, "Oh, and I will breed because at least in my case it'll be possible ;)"

I kinda doubt it actually, your heterosexuality is coming across as more theoretical rather than proven. I don't know if you are aware of this, but it takes two and I've never met any woman that would be that desperate to be the second... Another FYI, Gay don't mean sterile cupcake and I know a number of same sex couples who have children... Crestw00ds finest wrote, " your not meant to think that way about the same gender"

According to you, but you're (notice that, it's the contraction of you are, your is the possessive form of you, moron), you're about as clueless as they come. Crestw00ds finest wrote, "there is something SERIOUSLY wrong with you,"

Again, according to you, but you're an idiot. Crestw00ds finest wrote, "get help immediately"

The only help that any Gay person really needs is fewer of the miserable likes of you. Crestw00ds finest wrote, " and stay away from boys k? Good!"

Not into boys cupcake, I like men... If you really are "Crestw00ds finest", it's either a pool of one or a future superfund clean up site,'cause if you're the best they got, oy vey.

You are a sick disgrace to the plan of mother nature...Bob's right you live in shame and have weak ways of defending it. You seem to think you know me which makes a laugh hysterically! I'm clueless because I forgot to press the letter "E" in "you're"...wow ouch..that must mean I'm real dumb huh? hahaha and you've never met any woman to be "the second" is because you don't talk to girls, atleast not the right ones LOL "you're" a smart lil fag fairy aren't ya?
TOTAL disgrace to mother nature. You make people that think "normal" and yes normal...N-O-R-M-A-L..want to vomit forever.

Next time "you're" around alot of people...flaunt your feminine bull$hit and see if you leave there without a broken face. Now on my hand I'll go flaunt my heterosexaulity with my girl and see if anything happens...highly doubt it. You are looked down upon accept your foolish disgraceful ways of thinking and be ashamed!

Yes, everybody that partakes in the intended plan of mother nature thinks so too. It's VERY disgusting.

Considering that homosexuality is and always has been a part of nature's design and you are an idiot, your opinion on the subject is noted and laughed at.

I have NOTHING to be ashamed of dear, I am homosexual, it is nothing more than part of who I am as a person. Bob's just a deranged religious zealot with a homosexual fixation and your agreeing with him merely makes you look even more the fool.

Laugh all you want chuckles, but the truth is the truth. I've been on this Earth a long time now and I've had the misfortune of having to deal with far too many ignorant fools exactly like you. Hell, I probably know you better than you know yourself.

No dear, there are many reasons which prove you to be clueless, pointing out that you not knowing the difference between your and you're was merely a jibe. By the way, your 'explanation' is just plain laughable...

I've got news for you buttercup, this "lil fag fairy" is a hell of a lot smarter than you could ever hope to be.... Another by the way, you really should quit making random guesses about my life, you are only succeding in making a fool of yourself.

Again, Mother Nature disagrees with you on that score, but she made you a moron, so why would I expect any better from you...????

Dear, if you were capable of thinking, "N-O-R-M-A-L" or otherwise, you would have just shut the f*ck up and quietly slithered back under whatever rock you came out from under, but no, you just had to come back and give me more ammunition to help you look the damned fool you really are.

Amazingly enough, you guessed more or less what I did to the last person stupid enough to "think" they could break my face, I broke his f*cking jaw (I also ruptured one of his testicles when I attempted to knee them out through his mouth and then had him arrested for taking a swing at me). He picked the wrong faggot to f*ck with and so have you, moron.
Crestw00ds finest wrote:

Theoretically, you're probably right, but I sincerely doubt that there is any girl in your life. No woman has standards that low and your blow up doll doesn't want to be seen with you in public.
Crestw00ds finest wrote:

Wrong again sugarplum, I have nothing to be ashamed of and as for anyone who "looks down on me", that ain't my problem, it's theirs. Thanks for playing assh*le, but the reality you have to face is that this "lil fag fairy" is more of a man and clearly a far better one than you could ever hope or pray to be.

Right you are! Let's not forget those ignorant moms that put there little darlings in beauty pagents, at 4-10 yrs old and throw 3 lbs of make up on them. They look like little sluts! Pathitic! Seen this on tv alot.
