Don’t Look, Ethel!


Best as I could tell, these folks were kissing each other on the cheek and holding hands.
Even if there was some actual kissing, there ain’t a child on Earth that hasn’t seen straight folks do that (and more) in public.  Come to think of it, I have seen worse on any number of supposedly child appropriate cartoons and family friendly kids shows which air during kid TV hours on multiple channels.
This has nothing to do with PDA and everything to do with discomfort around something a segment of society is unused to seeing and therefore uncomfortable with. That segment needs to suck it up and deal with it, not try to drag everyone else down to their level.
The only way any of those children will be scarred is if their ignorant ‘straight’ parents do it.  I am not worried.  I’m quite sure that many parents will sink to the occasion so that they can continue to shield their children from reality and common sense.  There will be a whole new crop of little intolerant bigots to release into the world in no time.
Sigh.
Stories like this are exactly why demonstrations take place. To educate the public.

    It’s funny, every poll says there is a huge disparity in attitudes of the older generations vs the younger on smae-sex relationships.
    If it makes them happy and doesn’t hurt anyone*, have at it, and have fun!

    (*It not conforming to someones opinion does NOT count as “hurting” them.)
