The End of the World as We Know It

(Originally posted on MySpace on Sunday, June 08, 2008)

Well, this just happened and I can't resist talking about it. This week in Seattle, usually a very gay-friendly city, two lesbians shook up the whole town when they decided to kiss at a Seattle Mariners game. An usher took it upon himself to tell them to stop, as another person had complained and he also felt the kissing behavior was inappropriate. This has split the city and made the top news on TV and print. It would seem that the main complaint was that some parents had problems with a public same-sex kiss because they didn't want to explain it to their children. "How can we explain that?" was the question asked?

Of course, I feel once again that this is just another thinly disguised excuse for these people to hide their bigotry. I've got some advice for these parents. How do you explain to your kids when they see a man and a woman kiss? Why is a man-woman kiss innocent, but a same-sex kiss overtly sexual?

Get over it! Tell your kids that there are people who love each other and they kiss because of it. Sex doesn't even have to enter the picture, gay or straight. Stop trying to justify your bigotry with nonsense like this.

I feel damn sorry for the kids of parents like these. It's time for these people to stop being so immature and decide to live in the real world. How do they expect their kids to grow up when they can't even do the same?


As I said last week, it's my birthday this weekend and I'm busy celebrating by eating too much food and getting too little sleep. It's been another busy week and so this week's blog is going to be short. There's the rant above and then there's this link. Please watch this:

Do you still believe that the United States is leading the World in anything anymore?

I'm curious to hear what you have to say. I know I wasn't feeling too high-and-mighty after seeing that presentation.

I'll be back next week with what I hope will be a somewhat lighter subject matter.
