Radical Gays Need a Lesson in PC

Updated on September 28, 2011

Two recent events involving the gay community show a more radical element of the Gay community and their interactions with the straight society.

The lesbian couple aboard an otherwise straight airlines flight. One of the women was actually a TV actress on the show, The L Word. The couple was seated and until they started making out, there were no issues. The actress claims it was a "modest" kiss. However, if one reads what many of the other passengers said, it was far from it. It was a full, intense, make-out session lasting quite some time. It was not just a brief kiss or show of affection. Some of the nearby passengers had young kids eyeing the spectacle as their parents tried in vain to distract them. The airline stewardress requested that they stop and respect the others on the plane for obvious reasons. Duh! even some gay's with kids have said it is not correct to have a make out session in such an situation. Yet, they carried on and later, screamed like deprived kids that the airline was discriminating against their lifestyle, how funny is that! Until they started making out, who knew they were gay? The point is that while they said their rights were being violated, their actions were violating the majority on the aircraft and their right not to be subject that should be in more private areas.

A heavy makeout session on an airplane, whether gay or not, is not appropriate and any adults\teens know this. Obviously, the radical gays they were, wanted to cause a scene and get attention. Do the big FU. Then, when the airline responded, went of FB to rant and whine about it. This kind of gay action does not promote tolerance between gays and the rest of the world. It does quite the opposite.

In SF, gay men and women walk around, go to parks, eat in restaurants, naked. At least they confine it to the Castro district. Of course, tourists not knowing this, stumble into or by and are shocked, either are disgusted or intrigued by such actions. Why is it that this happens anyway? Just what are those Gays trying to announce to the world? Hey, check out my penis? Check out my boobs? Visitors come away from SF with negative comments, even if mildly amused. Oddly, their is no SF ordinance stating it is a crime to be nude.

      Well, if the point was there are way more serious social issues, I agree. there is a proper place to everything.

      Whatever. I'm done. "Making out" and walking around nude is far from "radiacal". And itis hardly a reason to get bent over it. You clearly missed my point.

      Best regards to you and your neighbor.

      Like most people, there are others. Hardly call it an outrage. BTW, my gay neighbor tends to agree me on radical elements in the gay world. Just saying.....

      If the "radical gay" is your best social outrage, then I can assume #2 may be correct.

      Well, your opinion is simply that. Item 3 in SF is actually worse when it comes to many of the radical gays, others are fine, some have an agenda and denying this is not the case is being in denial. As to violence and prostitution, no worse than any city with 700,000.As to #2, how would you know if the reaction would be any different, you are just arguing for the sake of arguing.

      Actually, perrya, now that you mention it....lemme think a I don't see the problem. Three things:

      1. None of what you wrote is a personal experience and it was based on hearsay.

      2. Straight people behave poorly, too. Would have those airline parents been so-o objectionable if the couple were straight? Doubt it. Further, if it was a problem, would you have heard about it and reacted so?

      3. I've never been to SF. I've only heard stories. I have also heard nudity is relatively isolated. Whereas homelessness, community violence and prositution of kids is really not? Why aren't outraged about these things? Is knowing you can see someone's tally-wacker that socially important?

      Sorry. I don;t see the problem. If anyone is flaunting, it's straight people.

      Ironically, gay parents side with straights on this one. @paul, yes in SF, there is no ordinance against being nude in public.

      They are never satisfied no matter what the government or society allows them. They can't stop pushing the envelope it seems. Good for the airline to keep control of the cabin, as they should always do. And who wants to see naked, gay or otherwise? Nudity should stay at the nude beach where it belongs.

      A person's sexuality is only one part of their life. People need to be more respectfull and use common sense, not act like spoiled children.

      We call it PDA (public display of affection,) and you're right. Anyone exhibiting can be embarrassing to those around them. The other point is an "acting out" that seems to be radical but is rather immature.

      Even in the UK we heard about this. I'm not sure it's being radical but it is definitely exhibitionism and using their homosexuality to shock people for the purpose of self publicity (remember one of them is an actress). It would be interesting to hear from anyone from the gay community on this topic. You could try walking into a lesbian bar and snog your wife? Or maybe not.

      Your last paragraph suggests its is legal to be naked in San Francisco, is this true? Being naked in a restaurant is disgusting, straight or gay.

      ... sometimes being radical is how to get noticed and sometimes it just sets everyone back but being PC hasn't worked so far
