OK, first let me start by saying that I'm pro gay rights including gay marriage, adoption, and I absolutely encourage laws against sexual orientation discrimination and hate crimes against gays to be punished as much as those hate crimes against any other group of our society.

Now, here's what I have a problem with... Gay parades! If gay people want to encourage their right to show their pride, that's fine. However, I absolutely hate how some gay people go on these parades wearing speedos and other accesories of tight or very small clothing while engaging in simulated sexual acts in public. Seriously, if they want to come out and say they're gay, then good for them, but please we don't need a fuckin' public physical demonstration that you're actually gay. Keep your sexuality for your own private space, just like everybody else. I know many gay people come out to parades in a quite decent way, but there are others who do it just for the sake of outraging everybody else.

Now, before you call me homophobic, let me just say that I'm not playing by double standards. If it was both men and women engaging on explicit displays of simulated sex acts in public that would be just as wrong.

OK, that's my two cents. So feel free to rant now.

No, I think it makes you diligent by way of stating your opinion.

Over in Provincetown, Massachusetts, USA many summers ago...

Commercial Street in Provincetown is a place where sometimes the street is opened to foot traffic, people of all ages walk on the pavement and sidewalk.

A small art gallery with it's store front window, less than 1 foot from the sidewalk, doorway on the right, my wife and I were inside.

There were dozens upon dozens of homosexual artwork, specifically in the nature of sex acts.

There was no age notification at the door.

This place was small.

In the store front window, a life sized pencil drawing of two men having sex, front to back, buttocks connection being the main part of the work, center.

Outside on the sidewalk, a child less than 5 years old with his parents.


The store owners could have cared less.

I along with my wife were outraged.

Honestly, I hoped someone took that store front window work out of the window with or without consent of the owners.

Finally for once I'm going to have to agree with Mahler on something.

Artists have the right to display their work, despite of explicit some might find it to be. However, that's why private galleries were made.

Don't you know though that you can do anything you want as long it's ART. I know this has nothing to do with the main topic but anyway....

Just out this fruit look for example:

http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,21568777-2862,00.html



AN artist carried out a bomb hoax in a bizarre bid to gain recognition and to promote an anti-terrorism message, a court has heard.
Colin Douglas Barnett, 46, will spend three months behind bars after pleading guilty to one count each of creating a bomb hoax and causing a public nuisance and two counts of making a false report to police.

He will also have to pay $6319 to police after the bomb squad was called in to remove his fake bomb.

The frustrated artist, of Cranbourne North, placed what he called a peace bomb -- a clay, vase-shaped sculpture -- in Federation Square in October 2005.

He returned the next day and moved it to the National Gallery of Victoria when he discovered it had been surrounded by tables and chairs.

The following day police were forced to close a section of St Kilda Rd when the package, which had the words "peace bomb" and "fragile: handle with care" written on it, was discovered by gallery security staff.

The bomb squad was called in and removed the package.

"Bomb attacks killing and maiming people, perhaps scores of people, are a reality in many parts of the world," Judge Leo Hart said.

Judge Hart said the peace bomb was an artistic item but only Barnett knew this. The case was unusual and prosecutors had described it as bizarre, he said.

Barnett had the dual aims of gaining artistic recognition and promoting an anti-terrorism message: "You misguidedly thought you could achieve both ends by taking the steps that you did," Judge Hart said.

Barnett's lawyer Sharon Kermath said Barnett wanted recognition and publicity as an artist, but no major galleries had been interested in his work.

ThomasQuinn, what are you implying?

"Crying" and "crime & murder" although go hand in hand for some, the victim, the deceased, really there is much room for laughter.

BTW,

The look on the parents face that day, was of disgust and outrage yet, it was only present by their worried eyes.

The child did manage to look upon that "buttf**k" drawing, as if by unseen forces commanding him to recieve the message.

Me? The store owners did not get a smile, only a cold, cold look directly into their eyes.

The two men sat there never saying anything audibly, almost motionless really.

It doesn't make you homophobic or prudish, IMO. I dislike this, too. I think it reduces gays to little more than horny outrageous characters rather than show them as whole, 'normal' and productive people. A little outlandishness, however, is cool. It's supposed to be about fun and pride. Unfortunately, some people - gay and straight - have a need to take things over the top.

Whenever people flash their lifestyle, whatever, it is enough to give me pause.

I guess you have to ask, if my wife and I did what they do in these "Gay Pride" parades, we'd get arrested.

Just another double standard, and normal people are forced to look the other way.
