For those who think the Great Nationwide Kiss-In was pointless, gratuitous or childish, I’m going to up the ante a bit on your thinking.
I want you to consider WHY the idea of two people of the same sex kissing makes you squirm, makes you uncomfortable. I want you to FACE those feelings for a minute.
But lemme give you some historic perspective to help you out.
Okay, I’ll stop- that last one tends to squick ME out! 😉
But here’s the thing: Kissing is NORMAL. It’s NATURAL. It is an expression of love. Or friendship. Or something more:
Anyone who can look at these images, watch countless movies and television out there, casually kiss people on the cheek that they barely know at gatherings and STILL think that same-sex kissing is wrong… well, I feel sorry for you and your narrow view of the world.
But thanks for reading all of this.
