Talking Lesbian kisses at game ignite Seattle debate

Quote:
SEATTLE, Washington -- Most of the time, a kiss is just a kiss in the stands at Seattle Mariners games. The crowd hardly even pays attention when fans smooch.

Sirbrina Guerrero complained after an usher told her to stop kissing her date at a Seattle Mariners game in May.

But last week, a lesbian complained that an usher at Safeco Field asked her to stop kissing her date because it was making another fan uncomfortable.

The incident has exploded on local TV, on talk radio and in the blogosphere and has touched off a debate over public displays of affection in generally gay-friendly Seattle.

"Certain individuals have not yet caught up. Those people see a gay or lesbian couple and they stare or say something," said Josh Friedes of Equal Rights Washington. "This is one of the challenges of being gay. Everyday things can become sources of trauma."

As the Mariners played the Boston Red Sox on May 26, Sirbrina Guerrero and her date were approached in the third inning by an usher who told them their kissing was inappropriate, Guerrero said.

The usher, Guerrero said, told them he had received a complaint from a woman nearby who said that there were kids in the crowd of nearly 36,000 and that parents would have to explain why two women were kissing.

"I was really just shocked," Guerrero said. "Seattle is so gay-friendly. There was a couple like seven rows ahead making out. We were just showing affection."

Seattle does have a lot of lesbos from what I've heard..

Though to be fair, the seahawks are quite loud for being in such a "liberal" town, I'll give them a lot of credit in that area.

And to also be fair, I've been to an area between Pittsburgh and DC in West Virgina/MD area, and there was an intresting mix of Bureaucrats (who live in DC and commute), Redneck Good Ol Boys and Gays all living in some type of weird harmony. I'm not kidding.So its not to say that this couldn't auctually occur in places other than Seattle.

Ah, yes, one of the few things Pittsburgh and Cleveland fans can agree on.

BOSTON AND NEW YORK SUCKS.

I don't care if they were gay or not, I don't want to see two people making out at a baseball game, or any other public event. There's this thing called a BEDROOM for that sort of thing. So you have to make out in order to show affection in public? Since when? I sit next to an openly lesbian couple at PNC Park for baseball games and they don't resort to that. Sheesh people...show a little tact and respect for others! Oh that's right, those are foreign concepts these days.

I agree that there are lines that should not be crossed in public in the PDA department, be they straight or gay.

But the people involved state that they were just giving eachother pecks when the Mariners scored or something like that (which frankly hasn't been that often this year).

If that is true, then I think the usher was totally wrong as they have no problem with straight people kissing. Heck, they even routinely have a "kissing cam" inbetween an inning where they put couples on the big screen and have them kiss.

If it was a total tonsil hockey session, then yeah, they needed to be told to tone it down. But nobody else has come out to say that was the case. Course they might be afraid of being labeled a bigot.

There is a little bit of a backlash against one of the women that started in the last day or two out here. One of the women in question has been in the press doing inteviews and stuff. To her credit, she has been sayign she isn't trying to sue for money or anything, she just wants to be allowed to be treated by teh same rules as a straight couple. It turns out that she has been on some reality TV show that I have never heard called Tila Tequila and has been filmed doing some pretty lewd stuff in public before. Now that doesn't mean that she was being inappropriate at the game. But it has led more people out here to question her veracity regarding the low key nature of their affection. And term "attention wh*re is getting thrown out by unsympathetic observers...
