    Have you read it in the news?

    I say it is cool. There are gay pubs for that. If anybody
    wants to see guys kissing then they can go to a gay pub
    and knock themselves out.

    It's called "each thing in its proper place". Responsible
    grandmas taught us that. A society properly organized
    is a better place.

    Well, they shouldn't have been kissing on a first date. The first date is for getting to know each other.

    Well Mr. New Seitse, I agree.
    No one wants to see two guys making out in a public place. There are special bars, etc for that.
    Some years back I went to to see a stage production of "The Producers", and two of the ushers were openly gay, one standing behind the other and grinding his groin against his boyfriend's butt while he held him close and whispered into his ear. This was in the aisle where everyone could see.

    UGH.

    I called the next day and complained, this was a mixed audience of all ages and had some kids in it.

    I hope they got fired.

    You went to a stage production of "The Producers" and then were surprised when gay stuff was going on??

    ??? Mel Brook's "The Producers" is hardly something known to attract a gay audience, and these were employee's nancing around in front of everyone rubbing and fondling each other.

    You must have it confused with another play.

    Of course, we must keep gay people segregated from the rest of the population.

    Any play is known to attract a gay and/or bourgeois public.

    As for people kissing in public: it's a bit rude but to be honest I don't really care.

    Stop moving the goal posts nobody mentioned "segregating gays from the population", the subject was the appropriatness of open displays of homosexual behaviour in public, think you can respond to that?

    Seems that what you call "each thing in its proper place" that "responsible grandmas taught" would include kissing in public in general - be it hereosexual or homosexual. However it seems that that you aren't against kissing in public in general - only when gays engage in it.

    Sounds like you have a strong case of homophobia.

    To what do you attribute your homophobia? Do you believe public displays of bigotry are appropriate?

    I don't hate homosexuals. I just don't like to see them
    kissing. I also don't like CSI Miami and I don't like seafood.
    Who are you to force me to watch them? Do I force you
    to watch Baywatch with me?

    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homophobia
    Homophobia is a range of negative attitudes and feelings towards lesbian, gay, bisexual, and in some cases transgender and intersex people and behaviour. Definitions refer variably to antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, and irrational fear.[1][2][3] Homophobia is observable in critical and hostile behavior such as discrimination[1][2] and violence on the basis of a perceived non-heterosexual orientation.


    The attitudes exhibited in your OP seem to fit quite well.

    So once again:
    "To what do you attribute your homophobia? Do you believe public displays of bigotry are appropriate?"

    Would you object if it was a man kissing a women?

    Do you think I have a negative attitude towards CSI Miami
    because I don't watch it?

    I feel appalled by your blanket accusation, brother. You seem
    to act in counter direction to the tolerance you try to preach.

    In a gay pub? Yes, I would. Gay pubs are for gay people
    and they have the right to feel comfortable amongst similar
    minded people.

    There are recorded cases of straight people being forbidden
    entrance to gay resorts, cruises, pubs, etc.

    What do you think of that?

    No, they have a right to feel comfortable wherever they choose to go.

    The segregating Jew. This is a wind up right?
