Lesbian Couple Discriminated Against at Safeco Stadium

According to Outsports:

"Two lesbians who kissed at a Seattle Mariners baseball game at Safeco Field said they were told to stop and are claiming discrimination based on sexual orientation.

The security guard said ‘there’s a lady whose son says he saw you guys making out, and I did, too. And you have to stop.’ Guerrero (the lesbian) said ‘well, we weren’t making out, but we were kissing and I’m not going to stop.”

The couple stayed at the game and then took pictures of men and women kissing without them being asked to stop. The Mariners are investigating the incident."

Just cross-posted this idea on Outsports... let's get this ball rolling!

The best solution to this ongoing problem of "easy-offense double standard" is a bit of the old "two can play at that game". GLBTQ's and our allies, when we bring our children, nieces and nephews, etc., into a public setting... should start claiming offense at any fanatical religious materials we see displayed. (I mean, think about it... telling a ten-year-old kid she's going to burn in eternal flame for not thinking the same way you do, that's pretty offensive, no?)

Let's see how they like the whole squeaky-wheel thing when they're not the wheels anymore!

Interesting idea cubpaws it would eliminate their tshirts, bumper stickers, etc. We could claim that we didn't want our children exposed to such radical viewpoints, that we did not yet wish to explain to them. Such as any anti-abortion bumper sticker.
