Let's find a straight couple willing to have shenanigans on the boat in view of the townspeople and see what happens!  

I like Dali & Burton.  Throw in a dark roasted Sumatra and I'm in heaven.

Tony - a straight couple probably would've gotten a slap on the wrist, the guy would've probably received a wink and a nudge from the responding officers, and they'd be told to keep it inside (or to get a room). Straight people enjoy the protections of straight police, but homosexuals are almost always made an example of in an attempt to shame us back into the closet.

What bothered me about the Huff Post article was the homophobic baptist church pastor crowing his bigoted head off about the arrest.

Comment by Tony Carroll on March 22, 2012 at 4:15pm

David, I was thinking the same thing. Would it have happened if the couple was straight? Don't know, but my gut seems to think no.

Comment by David Philip Norris on March 22, 2012 at 4:12pm

Oh no, my mind is like the blending of a Salvador Dali painting and a Tim Burton movie. It's pretty frightening.

As for the Atlantis cruise, I guess I can see how the arrests were valid. However, the question I would pose is whether the couple would've been arrested if they were straight. Would they have been hauled down to ye olde station and made an example of?

Gay boogieman indeed. Last I heard, most people were born by the combination of an egg and a sperm.  Which means gay people were conceived by straight people. Huh. Imagine that. Don't tell Santorum that. It'll just give him more ammunition. He'll invariably make the womans fault. Thanks SB.

David - because it's such a nice place to be.

SB - If I had a dollar every time I said this, I might be slightly richer than I am (don't have a precise number for you): Why are you in me?

Comment by Daniel W on March 22, 2012 at 3:48pm

David, mind-meld is a scary thing.  But don't worry - I'm gentle.

Tony, I don't know.  The more blatant homophobia the past few months probably reflects the election process.  Gay boogieman gonna get your kids if you don't vote right.  When the election passes, we'll have to sort it out, sort of like a tornado.
