I Lied

I said I wasn't going to post anything political, but I got to browsing some websites on Gay Day at Disney World. I remember watching the news one day and seeing people in an uproar over some pretty sick things going on during Gay Day. I'm all in support of Gay Parades, parties, and picnics, but when I see things like this I can see why some are so against it. I wish these people would realize that not all of us are like this, but you'll never be able to make them see that as long as the ignorant ones continue act this way.

It's pretty much the same thing when it comes to racism. You have your extremists and that's all people tend to see.

Hate exists beacuse of shit like this and this.


Okay, I'm going to take my nap now.

I wonder if you want to stop everyone from attending the park too? You know that more hetrosexuals have sex and commit sexual acts daily than people at Gay Day do in the week they are there?

I've spent tons of time investigating this organization and it's not as wild as people make it out to be. The pictures taken have been taken over the past ten years by a Christain organization in mainly places where people under 21 aren't allowed.

Anyhoot this is not common at the event.

But heterosexual sex is quite common at the park. But we aren't complaining about them are we?

I would be completely apalled to see any sex at all going on at a Disney theme park - it doesn't matter if over 21 people only are allowed or not - this is disgusting.
Pamela, I don't see any heterosexual sex going on in these pics - and I would not approve of that either, if I did.

If I saw a heterosexual couple in a park running around naked grabbing each other's privates I'd be just as, if not more disgusted.
There's a park here in Dallas where the gay men line up in their cars and wait for other men to walk up to them for sex. They stand against trees, water fountians, anything they can just waiting for it. We drive by there just today and there were about 20 guys standing around waiting just in our view. Everyone knows this park and what they're doing and it's really repulsive. The point I was trying to make Pamela, is that those guys and their repulsive acts make the rest of us decent homosexuals look bad. That's why I was talking about gay couples and not hetero couples.

The problem is the whole event gets labeled this way when it's explained as it was. I mean honestly in ten years of this event going on they have a handfull of pictures. But the entire event is labeled as some sort of sex orgie and it just isn't. It's true that these people bring bad light to other homosexuals but no one seems to say that when they talk about this event. They make it seem like it's everyone who attends that's doing it.

I just hate that this event (which isn't just for homosexuals) seems to be picked on a lot. But anyhow yeah people are idiots.

I find myself wondering when viewing such things if the culture isn't going to tear itself apart.

Some pooh-pooh the notion but honestly, the two views of such photos are so far apart I see no way to reconcile them.

In my humble opinion, the word that applies to all of this nonsense is "inappropriate"... It is inappropriate for anyone, regardless of his or her sexual orientation, to act that way in a public place. But of course, someone will now say who am I to determine what is and isn't appropriate.... On and on it will go, ad nasium, but that is a topic for another day.

Deep down inside, most of us know actions of this nature are inappropriate, and those performing these acts know it is inappropriate but will continue to flaunt their actions more and more, until the day none of us will be able to do anything in a public place.

The people in this country should be mad as Hell about all of this, because in the end it will be everyone that looses their freedoms because of the irresponsible actions of a few. But I donít see that anger. Rather, I see most as being complacent and uninterested.

Like it or not, our society is going downhill and I just hope I'm gone by the time it really starts coming apart. There is no excuse for the kind of public actions we are exposed to in this day and age. But we have few in our midst willing to take a firm stand and confront these actions for what they are.... Inappropriate.

Pennywit-
Yes I know these photos came from a christian organization, but the photos are real. I saw a program on the news about the lewd acts at gay day. I know these acts go on everyday inappropriate places with straight couples, but I was talking about gays because that's the group I'm associated with. Children and families had to witness this kind of behavior and I know from attending many gay parades that these men can act far worse than that in public. Not all of them are like this. Only a few, and my point is that those few make the rest of us gays look bad. Find me some photos of straight couples in a family oriented public place such as Disney World doing the same acts and I'll have a another rant to post.

Sam, I followed the first link yesterday when you first posted this, and today I got an e-mail touting a website with the EXACT SAME web page layout! Kind of like the time your Dad linked to a bozo who made his page look JUST LIKE gutrumbles. I don't know much about web page design, but is it possible that a spammer can lift your e-mail address when you visit a page? Very creepy.

Sam,

This reminds me of an incident that happened about 18 years ago, when we took our sons, ages 6 and 3, to the Renaissance Faire in Northern California. We didn't go on many outings like that then because money was very tight, and the tickets were expensive, so this was going to be a real treat for the family.

Well, unbeknownst to us and everyone else - including the Faire personnel, the gay community had designated that same day as the day they would converge at the Faire to promote their Gay Games event - they handed out flyers (outside, not inside the Faire itself) and plastered the cars in the parking lot as well.

Luckily, my sons were young enough at the time - and there were so many strangely-dressed people at the Faire as it was - that the sight of two men dressed in nothing but leather straps, one leading the other with a leash and collar - along with other assorted outfits and behaviors - that the boys didn't really pay attention. The organizers of the Faire were apologetic but were unable to do anything - I suppose we could have asked for a refund, but my inclination was to just make the best of it.

Personally, I dislike gratuitous and/or designed-to-shock behavior of any kind, whether homosexual or heterosexual. To me, relationships are private and should remain so.
