Talking yesterday with the Liar Cubana at lonche, she related to me a story from this past weekend, where she and her husband were at a restaurant watching basketball playoffs and were treated to some Sapphic public displays of affection at the bar, which, unfortunately, was between their table and the TV screen.
It reminded me of the story I heard last week about the outrage expressed by a lesbian attending a baseball game in Seattle after an usher at the stadium asked her to stop kissing her girlfriend when other fans complained. In response to that, said a spokesman from Equal Rights Washington, "Certain individuals have not yet caught up. Those people see a gay or lesbian couple and they stare or say something."
Back to yesterday's lunch . . . one of our mutual observations was that the recent decision by the California Supreme Court will have an effect beyond wedding licenses in that gays will expect that their lifestyle must become part of the social fabric and setting, which means for those who find it distasteful, we are the ones who "have not yet caught up." We are not entitled to protest homsexual behavior in front of our children. Instead, tolerance will become acceptance and anything less will not be, well, tolerated.
Anyone want to weigh in?
