I see alot of liberals in here arguing that this is no big deal, and that those that are even talking about the coverage of it must have some sort of problem with the act, or hinting are homophobic in some way, even with posting to the contrary. I also have seen the argument in here that this was spontaneous in some way, and that one report even compared it to the famous kiss in Time Square NY after WWII. I did find this interesting tid bit, seemingly overlooked by all in the WaPo story about it....
So the Navy Chose these people to mug for the cameras....Doesn't that bother anyone.....'Hey, look how open and progressive we are! We have lesbians!'Navy officials said it was the first time on record that a same-sex couple was chosen to kiss first upon a ship’s return. Sailors and their loved ones bought $1 raffle tickets for the opportunity.
