You have never kissed your partner/significant other/spouse in a public place during an anniversary/birthday/other milestone celebration? You have much more restraint than I could ever muster. After I proposed to my wife, I received a very big kiss in a restaurant, that was a little beyond a peck on the cheek, and we were not asked to leave. I don't know you at all, but I disagree. I happen to know that homophobia is prevalent enough that this seems far from an unlikely scenario. Why did only one group of customers complain? Why would the restaurant apologize if what the were doing was so beyond the pale of decent behavior that they were asked to leave the restaurant? A straight couple would have to be practically having sex to be asked to leave immediately-- I mean, the manager would likely have been within his rights to ask them to tone it down if they were in fact making out, but to be told to leave? No this is clearly a double standard. I know how inter-racial couples had to face this same kind of bigotry, and I see no need to give cover to people who choose to be prejudiced.
