Radical Gays Need a Lesson in PC
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.
