Good, bad, or hot -- What do people think about our affection?

by Jeremy Hooper

AbcsameBirmingham, Alabama's Fox affiliate has discovered that the ABC network has been conducting an experiment in their area to gauge how people react to public displays of same-sex affection. The reactions will reportedly be part of a forthcoming, week-long ABC News project:

ABC Tests Gay, Lesbian Affection in Birmingham [My Fox 6]

Wouldn't it be great if the reactions were more along the lines of, "Ooh, look kids -- LOVE!" and less like, "Ooh! Don't look kids, it's gay love"? Though considering that even in certain parts of New York City, we still sometimes look over our shoulder to make sure a fist is not going to greet our post-smooch faces, we somehow doubt that this news report is going to be a resounding portrait of queer acceptance.

But whether it tells us that we still have a long ways to go or if it reminds us that we've come very far, we'll be sure to let you know when it's gonna air.
