    I'm sorry, Navy, but who are you to speak for society? Gay couples are openly affectionate in public all the time. If some people can't handle that...oh well. Two people shouldn't have to refrain from showing public affection simply because a handful of people can't handle it.

    I would say "society" in different places absolutely are and in other places aren't. In the middle of San Francisco or even somewhere like New York? Yeah, "society" is probably fine with it to certain degree's. In rural alabama or even a small city in Virginia? Possibly not. "Society" isn't uniform over the entire U.S. Similarly, there's rural places I know where two people...ANY two people...having a deep embrace would be "flaunting sexuality" in those peoples eyes. Does that mean, since its like that in one part of society, no two straight people can have a deep embrace in public in any location in the U.S.?

    As YS said, society, for the most part, could care less if two guys or two girls are kissing or hugging in public. Most people are perfectly fine with turning away if they find it disturbing.

    Plus, do you think society was ready to see interracial couples kissing and hugging and holding hands in public in 1968 when interracial marriage had to be allowed? Over 70% of the population disapproved and most of those thought interracial relationships were an "abomination". There are still a good portion of the populations today who consider interracial relationships to be wrong or disgusting or disturbing.

    Civil liberties are involved. Boy do we go around and around on this one. Gays have the same Civil Liberties I do. They want special Liberties as polygamysts and many other classes of people.

    Two women yes two guys no way. I am not going to go into the interracial thing again we been there a thousand times and to compare a man and a woman to two gays its ludicrous.

    I think straight flaunting there sexuality is wrong to but it is accepted.........I would not like to see gay men kissing it is repulsive to and to most people and in a lot of places in this country it could put the 2 gay men doing it in harms way. even with DADT repealed you do not see gay male sailors kissing and holding hands........There is a reason for that.

    In the Peoples Republic of SF and Seattle maybe but I would say in no red states and most other blue states is it being done. I have seen women holding hands but I have never seen 2 men kissing and making out in public..........sorry
