Kiss my sass, Pete
Oh this reminds us...
Wielding perversion like a weapon: most normal people do not want to see two people of the same sex kiss — a “disgust” factor that homosexual activists are counting on to maximize the effect of their “Great Nationwide Kiss-in” this Saturday. How many innocent children will be corrupted by this latest example of selfish “gay” activism?
Homosexual Kiss Protest — List of Locations for ‘Great Nationwide Kiss-in’ Events Saturday [AFT]
...YOU MUST BE SURE TO ATTEND A GREAT NATIONWIDE KISS-IN EVENT THIS WEEKEND!!!!!
Thanks, Peter LaBarbera, for helping us remember. Smooches, doll.
**ALSO: If you're in Pittsburgh for the Netroots Nations conference, there will be an event right outside the convention center. Be sure to make plans to be there.
What would he do if he were to visit, say, Russia or the former Eastern Bloc? Straight dudes kiss other straight dudes on the lips all the time there.
I just don't get LaBarbera. It's not like people will be ripping off clothes and laying each other out in the middle of the street. This isn't a bacchanal, it's a kiss-in. I could understand if someone was having an all-nude fun-run in front of an elementary school, but this?

Following AFT's link to Ms. Higgins at IFI, we see that she's been playing with adjectives again:
"....despite the voluble, vigorous, and often vitriolic protests...."
A real wordsmith, that one.

Once, I was on the DC Metro with my boyfriend. My stop came and he wanted to kiss me goodbye. I didn't want to, for fear that I might offend people. Two steps onto the platform, I realized that for every person who might be offended by a kiss, there could be a closeted teenager, wrestling with his soul.
What better way to show people the simple, honest love that two people can share. And if someone sees it and realizes gays are normal, then all the better. From that day on, I have never recoiled from a kiss :)

a “disgust” factor..
Wow, Pete, why don't you tell us what you really think! Maybe that same "disgust" factor is why he publishes so many of those images on his (disgusting??) blog?

if 2 men kiss they are wielding perversion and yet according to LaBarbera's own words killing another man is just justice.
Peter writes on his site in his August 7th post about the Tel Aviv shootings: "Unlike the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, I would support the death penalty for the Tel Aviv murderer (though Israel abolished the death penalty for such crimes). That would be far more effective than “hate crimes” laws in deterring such attacks in the future."
The problem here is that the bible says "thou shalt not kill" it didn't follow that with "unless" it just stated thou shalt not kill. You don't get to call us perverts for not following your version of the bible unless you are going to follow the same book.
Just a thought for ya Peter. Practice what you preach and it will mean something.

As I said before, probably here, Porno Pete's real problem is that this'll be done in daylight, without leather or chaps or flogging, and women will be involved.
I am so sad I have to miss this!!!!! I'm going to be working!!!!!! L'Ailee and I are going to see if we can arrange a break.
Of course, we've kissed in public just to make a point before. My favorite time was when a Muslim neighbor got angry because we kissed *on our own front stoop* and told us to stop for the sake of her children. This was just a peck on the cheek. I tried to engage her. My wife, who is far more direct and less verbal than I am, had a better idea. My hair is usually to the middle of my back; L'Ailee bent me so far back the ends of my hair reached the sidewalk, took off my glasses, and proceeded to deep-kiss me like she was going off to war! When we came up for air, the neighbor was gone, but several people were watching.
I really wish that woman would come around complaining again. And Porno Pete, you're welcome in my neighborhood anytime. ;-)

No! Really, Pete LaB has an issue with a KISS IN?!
He thinks THIS will corrupt children?!
Oh well, GEE Pete! How SO?
The streets of LA are poisoned with violence. Three children died in foster care this year, and an angel faced little guy all of six years old named Daevon Bailey was beaten to death by his step father (who is still at large).
Daevon had been abused his entire little life, and his neglectful mother left him with a man who had a criminal record of violence.
I think little Daevon and every little child like him would have benefited from seeing LOVE in the world. People showing how warm and safe they can make each other feel.
A kiss, is a precious thing, a drop of honey to salve a place where there is piss and vinegar.
Pete...sometimes are you are the world's biggest fool for thinking that witnessing a kiss could POSSIBLY corrupt ANYONE.

That's absolutely right, Pete: Hate-mongering is exactly what young children need to grow into well-adjusted, "normal" adults. Heaven forbid they should be exposed to something as corrupting as two people expressing their love and affection for one another!

How is straight people kissing in public is any different from me and my girlfriend kissing?
