    Yeah, I don't think they will be reprimanded for anything either. But it is in no way equal to the famous VJ day Time Square kiss either.

    There was a report that did exactly that, equate the two.

    Is the report in this thread as I didn't see it. So far I haven't seen anyone equating the two. The main thing I've seen people defend is the newsworthiness of it which I believe it is. I don't think it is equal because of what the first one from WW2 represents. However, this is newsworthy in itself because gay people have previsouly been forbidden to express themselves like this in the past.

    Why not? That photo wasn't exactly showing a loving sailor kissing his beloved. They didn't know each other. The sailor was kissing any and every woman there and the photographer thought that him kissing a nurse made a really good shot.

    Sure, the article is here...Navy gay kiss photo echoes famous V-J Day image - Arts Post - The Washington Post

    However, with the removal of DADT, this kiss is nothing special...Barred from it previously or not, the news was the repeal, not the kiss.

    It's an important point in history for some. It is the first time the first kiss of a sailor on a ship/boat that just returned from a deployment was able to be between people of the same sex. The first kiss is important for many sailors and their families. I'm almost certain that a photo of the one that happened when we returned home after our 9+ month deployment was also published, at least in local papers.

    I wish I could remember who wrote a rather nice essay wondering what that nurse was thinking at the time. Rather good essay.

    So now we have gone from publicity stunt by the navy to not liking how a reporter frames the story. Do you have any other silly arguments to make?

    The silliness is ingrained within the community that believes that this movement is akin to anything that resembles the VJ day kiss, or let's see what else have they equated to....hmmmmm, oh yeah, the civil rights movement of the 60s....
