Gays Kiss: ABC Wants to Know "What Would You Do?!"

In an attempt to be- well, who knows what, ABC is conducting a "social experiment" on the public's reaction to gays and lesbians showing open displays of affection on the street. Click here for the article. Click here for the video.

"ABC is doing a social experiment in Birmingham that includes having same-sex couples show affection for each other in public, according to Birmingham police department sources. FOX6 first learned about this story from a Southside merchant who pointed out an RV parked at the corner of 20th Street and 11th Avenue South. The merchant said ABC was working on a week-long project to see how people would react to things like public displays of affection by gay and lesbian couples."

Sure, ok. I guess this is kind of interesting but there are really only two outcomes. You either care or you don't. Does this really need to be a "social experiment?"

We all know the reaction of the uncomfortable and conservative parties: "This is just mainstream media pushing forward the homosexual agenda."

Reactions are already coming in from Birmingham, Alabama:

"A South Precinct officer who spoke anonymously said he had received at least three or four reports from people who said they were disgusted over two men kissing in public. That officer says the ABC project is not a violation of the law and that ABC has a permit to park the RV."

Surprised? Well, I'm willing to wait this out and see if anything revolutionary comes of it. Thoughts?

What kills me is the "what are we supposed to tell our children?" objection. How ill-equipped are you for parenting if explaining same-sex affection is so impossible?

In 1979, two gay friends of mine had bottles and cans thrown at them in NJ just for holding hands as they strolled down the Lane. I hope that acceptance has grown in the last 29 years.
