Re: gay cruise ship arrests:

"George said the men were seen having sex on the Celebrity Summit cruise ship by someone on the dock"

My question there would be what did do the people who saw it deem as a sexual act - bearing in mind in the first place that they are gay. Perhaps the drugs may have influence such an extroverted display, but really, how many gay guys just 'bend over' anywhere and everywhere?. Most are discreet. Now perhaps a public display of kissing and fondling.... could this be misconstrued as 'gays having sex'? Obviously not enough information here to know. I was also surprised at my ignorance of how homophobic other countries are, sure, the the Middle East's feelings are well known, but Jamaica??? I always thought stoners were pretty laid back and cool, but then Jamaica does have a hell of a history, I just didn't realize they hadn't gotten over it.

SB. Strange people indeed. Was told, kindly, by my supervisor, that it appeared demonic. Dali did look possesed though. This was the same person that refused to work with a surgeon because he was Hindu, and actually told him he was going to hell.

Straight people have always enjoyed "Lovers' Lanes" and "Lovers' Point" type places.  It was considered a right of passage.

But, if the media shows a gay men meeting in the park, the public is supposed to be outraged by the fact that these men had the nerve to express their sexuality.

Yes, the article made it quite clear that the issue wasn't two people expressing their sexuality, it was two gay people.

I guess a "move along" is good enough for heterosexuals, but gay people require the police and the church to teach us that age old lesson, that any hint of our sexuality is bad and will not be tolerated.

It's only a matter of time before this discrimination passes, but we must always be vigilant, to ensure that it does disappear.

Hey SB. I'm willing to take one for the team. I'll be your straight man for this experiment. Always willing to throw myself on the grenade.

Comment by Daniel W on March 22, 2012 at 4:47pm

Tony, how could anyone be offended by that?  Strange people.

Comment by Daniel W on March 22, 2012 at 4:43pm

David - what are you doing in my mind?  It was supposed to be the other way around.  Be very careful, it's a mess in there.

Hey SB. Had 'Persistence of Vision' on my computer at work as wallpaper, and believe it or not, was asked to remove it. I think I know who it was, and they are fundamentalists. Have complained about a number of other people also under hostile work enviroment. I removed it, Their computer.

SB - Sumatra or Sumatran?

Tony - Well said. Gay rights shouldn't even be an issue.

Comment by Tony Carroll on March 22, 2012 at 4:34pm

That's what my gut is telling me. This makes me feel shameful, as if I need to apologize to everyone because I'm a straight man. I just really believe in justice for all, and truly love all my family and friends, some who just happen to be gay. Love them all. To me the real crime is why are poeple still living in poverty? Why do some go hungry? What are the root causes of inequality, what can we do to address these true issues, make this place we live in better. Gayness, such a non-issue when compared to these type of issues. Sorry, started to go into rant mode. Just know I think you're right. I'm right there with you any way I can help. Be well, my friend.
