    IOW, j-mac is wrong and the article didn't equate the two kisses. They merely noted the resemblance of the two IMAGES

    From the article
    The tenderness of Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta and her girlfriend of two years, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell, echoes Alfred Eisenstaedt’s famous image of a sailor kissing a nurse on V-J (Victory Over Japan) Day in Times Square, 1945.

    Gaeta’s and the anonymous WWII sailor’s body language and poses are strikingly similar: Each leans in, supporting their partner at the neck and lower back. The difference is in the recipient of their affection.

    Ok after reading it, the article stated that it would "ICONIC" like the WW2 photo. In that regard, I think it will be. So that comparison is true I guess. It won't be iconic to you, but it will to many in the gay community and gay supporters.
