    I'm sorry, but that's largely a gut reaction.

    For some people, yeah...the sight of ANY body kissing in public bothers them. For others, the sight of same sex couples bothers them. For others, perhaps it's seeing their parents kissing in public or their little sister or their grandparents. Perhaps they dislike seeing large couples, or a couple where one person is larger than the other, kissing. Perhaps if they find both people ugly they don't like seenig it. Perhaps if they're just old they don't like it. Perhaps they generally don't mind it unless it's opened mouth.

    I could go on and on.

    It's one thing to suggest people should be accepting of gay people and things relating to it. It's another thing to try and tell people that their emotional feelings inherent within them are wrong. Why is it exactly that we can tell people it's wrong to suggest people stop being attracted to the same sex, but it's perfectly okay to tell people to not be repulsed by the sight of something. Both are emotions, are bodily reactions and feelings.

    I think the over the top ridiculousness of "OMG! My poor children! They're scarred for life because they saw kids kissing" is laughable. However, the notion that "I just don't like seeing two guys kissing" is not some horrible unreasonable thing. Saying "I don't like seeing two guys kissing, but I don't mind seeing a guy and girl kiss" is not some crazy, unreasonable notion.

    Anyone who says that they'd look at any situation of a publicly shown affection...or hell, let's make it easy and just say "kiss"...and would NEVER find ANY version of it bothersome or unsettling or gross or just kind of "ugg" is probably not telling the truth imho.

    This is taking it a step too far in terms of the attempts to force "acceptance" into society.
    I do agree
    i myself dont want to see anybody kiss i dont find generally eye pleasing, like an ugly straight couple but the thing is I would always just keep my mouth shut cause its none of my business.
    I also agree with you 100% about the over the top absurdity about " "OMG! My poor children! They're scarred for life because they saw guys kissing" is completely silly.

    Good gosh.

    And you have offered no evidence that it was "common knowledge" other than to assert that it was so. I have offered evidence to support the notion that it was not widely known the extent of the permanent damage that could occur as a result of repeated blows to the head in football.

    Sports, especially immensely popular professional sports like the NFL, aren't part of the culture?

    Its why you started this ridiculous thread.

    Because of his sexual preference.

    Its nonsense.

    Its why he's being discussed at all, NOT because he's a Great Football Player, ( He's Not ) because he's a homosexual.

    Who gives a rats ass either way ?

    The people who are claiming "bleh who cares" are generally the type of people who wish gays didn't exist, want to pretend they don't, and want to keep them out of public view as much as they can, lest the gay cooties rub off on them and give them a case of the gay.

    Oh BS. Your'e full of s*** man.

    We're just a little sick of the constant propaganda and hyperbole from these non-inclusive activist.

    You know the ones who "celebrate diversity" but who demand that all other expression and opposition be silenced.

    Hypoccrites.
