Most of the time, a kiss is just a kiss in the stands at Seattle Mariners games. The crowd hardly even pays attention when fans smooch.

But then last week, a lesbian complained that an usher at Safeco Field asked her to stop kissing her date because it was making another fan uncomfortable.

I'll give you the fact that this lady probably was making othes uncomfortable because she was kissing another female, I dont like to see straight couples make out in public either. Call me a prude or whatever you want, but I prefer my kids understand that some things should be done in private.

Agreed. And I can't help suspecting that it wasn't just a smooch like we'd give our spouses. Without reading the article, my expectation is that they went full into it, girl-on-girl porno style, and not for the purpose of expressing their devotion to one another, but rather, to get in the spotlight and maybe make a couple bucks on a lawsuit after the aclu gets a hold of it.

ALL speculation on my part, granted. I haven't read the article yet...

I don't like seeing couples making out in public regardless of their sexuality (I don't mind a simple kiss but anything more than that is too far!) but if they were being discriminated against simply because they were lesbians then I find that totally unacceptable.

Ball players started it by patting each other on the buttocks.

Oh please, it's grandstanding and nothing else:

"...She works at a bar known for scantily clad women and was a contestant on the MTV reality show "A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila," in which women and men compete for the affection of a bisexual Internet celebrity.

"People are saying it's 15 more minutes for my career," Guerrero said of the ballpark furor, "but this is not making me look very good."

On one hand, PDA is stupid. On the other hand, if these gals were singled out amid numerous straight couples making out, that's stupid, too.

On another note, anyone know where I can get tickets to a Mariners game?

Exactly--I'm sure they're hotties and doing this not only for the notariety and the lawsuit, but because they get turned on by arousing all the pathetic drooling males around them lol.

.... what in the world?

Just putting this out there, but drawing conclusions like that before you even read the article is...

Well, it's just dumb.
