Same-Sex Couple Sues After Faced With Ultimatum at Mariners Baseball Game
Anyone who has attended a Major League Baseball game in the past decade has probably seen a "Kiss Cam" where couples throughout the ballpark are featured locking lips on the big-screen JumboTrons.
But controversy over ballpark kissing erupted at Safeco Field in Seattle this week when a same-sex couple claimed they were discriminated against because of their sexual orientation, which stadium officials deny.
Sirbrina Guerrero, 23, says she and her partner, who requested anonymity, were just "exchanging pecks," not acting any differently than heterosexual couples at the game, when park officials told them to stop "making out" or leave the facility.
"We were acting the same as any other dates that were out there, except we were a lesbian couple," she said. "When you bring a date to a game, you kiss once in a while. But it's not like we were making out. We were just kissing as regular couples do. I would never make out with anyone at a baseball game."

If only one person is offended by something seen as conservative, pro-life, or pro-heterosexual, it is quickly stomped out. However, if one person is (or even many people are) offended by behaviors that have typically been shunned by conservative moral people, they are seen as intolerant and discriminatory.
They must be butt-ugly, or else none of the guys there would be complaining about it.
Personally, I would like to see a lot less PDA period.
And we all know that people inclined to file this type of lawsuit would never, never, oh-not-ever lie!
Nice name! Left over scrabble letters after a drunken celebration???
Don’t worry...when Seattle enacts Sharia Law you won’t see it anymore!
See? Just let the fools talk...
You mean those are our only two choices??? Oh my!
“Dont worry...when Seattle enacts Sharia Law you wont see it anymore!”
that is cause they will all be put to death....
All this “lesbianism” seems to suggest that women are in fact, the weaker sex.
If they were so proud of their lip lock (which grosses me out, by the way), why is her partner remaining anonymous?
Yep! Those are the PC rules. If one leftist is offended, then the offending activity must cease. If 15,000 conservatives are offended, then they should be forced by law to become more “tolerant” of the offending behavior.
This once-great Society has lost it’s freakin’ mind.
To have to spend resources on crap like this . . . thanks liberals and PC-types for what you’ve done to our culture.
Gee... thanks... think I’ll go lose my breakfast now.....
The rule should be that if they’re both good looking, let them kiss. ;)
Welcome to gay pride month. A month long festival of “I was just acting ‘normal’”.
All you need is love...all you need is love...all you need is love, love, love is all you need.
As to the jumbo screen projection of this, the camera operators at ballparks regularly pan the audience for all sorts of things they would never put up on the big screen.
Things like people puking, girls flashing the camera man, and even couples discretely having sex.
They then pass around these “blooper reels” that they don’t show to the public.
I’d put the lesbian liplock into this category and suggest that whoever was running the editing board that day be called into the manager’s office.
If such problems continue, punish the camera staff for scouting for such outrageous shots to begin with.
The first thing I thought of was that has to be one of those life sized sex dolls, she looks plastic,
Even she sees that they are not a "regular" couple. That being said, PDA should be cut back by all people. I avoid taking my children to many events because people feel a need to force their sexuality upon others.
Charges dropped after twelve.
GUILTY as sin. The only reason she was kissing a woman is that no sane man would.
Ahh, but you're not a regular couple. You're a couple of dykes. You chose a lifestyle that is offensive to many people, so knock it off.
"We were acting the same as any other dates that were out there, except we were a lesbian couple," she said. "When you bring a date to a game, you kiss once in a while.
I've prolly been to hundreds (okay, a lot) of White Sox games in my life, going back to ..oh about 1955 and never seen couples kissing. Heck I've even taken the wife a few times ;-)
Of course I can't speak for those North side 'Cub Fans' who go to that quaint little Wrigley Field more to be seen and get drunk than to watch the game. (Hey Bridgette, guess what. I went to a party and Ball Game broke out)
I live in Seattle, and the Mariners are marketed as a family event. There are even ticket and food packages that can be bought. So the idea of a camera looking for PDA seems to run against Mariner marketing. In my previous post I suggested that PDA should be cut back by all people at such venues...but I would hope people would do so voluntarily. I did not advocate some sort of taliban fool with a stick to whack any violators. That should be reserved for the idiots on the freeway putting on makeup at 65mph.
In LIBERAL Seattle?.......
“We’re a couple just like any other couple!”
“No, we’re not!”
“Yes we are”
“We deserve to be treated just like any other couple!”
“No we don’t, we’re so special!”
“Sure we are!”
“No we’re not!”
Yes, PDA has been with us for a long long time, starting back in those innocent days when it was anything but “political”-—but now, any exhibition of it, from the hetero or homo sides, is considered “political”. It’s just part of a larger, more inclusive social phenom that has at its core a certain kind of exhibitionism. Consider how many people we see every day walking around talking into their little mouthpieces 2 inches from their lips, carrying on usually LOUD conversations with people who are strangers to us, but not to them, on sometimes the most personal of subjects. This has become a socially acceptable way of exposing yourself, just like flashers in raincoats. And the whole genesis of it is with the lack of decorum among people of ALL “persuasions” who can’t keep private behavior private.
Yea, families bring their kids to the game to have to deal with this crap?
This is the biggest problem with the Pirates right now, their owner is a huge poofer, he is more interested in gay rights/advocacy crap than he is actually putting together a winning team. They even have “GAY DAY” where a big gaggle all march through town and then own 1 section of the park with their flags flying and all the other nonsense that goes with it. Of course they don’t really mention it to the other 20,000+ people that buy tickets that day that that will be going on....
I really don’t give a rats butt what two folks do behind closed doors... I truly don’t. But I don’t take my kids to a sporting event to have discussions about the mentally ill.
She is kind of cute, in an “anime” kind of way.
But that has nothing to do with the “issue”.
Frankly, I like “girl on girl”
I just don’t understand boy on boy.
Maybe the hubub is to discourage the inevitable: boy on boy.
Let’s face it, hetero girls have always danced together,
held hands together, are much more naturally physical with
each other in a way guys could and should never be.
So far, the only “problem” I see is what I just mentioned-
that “certifying” this Lesbian PDA would hasten the arrival
of Gay Male PDA. Think about it.
Ask yourself what percentage of females are offended by it, as opposed to what percentage of males.
The answers, and the reasons behind them, might surprise you.
I’m 54 yrs old and I’ve never made out in public. I guess I thought that stuff was private, silly me.
They look somewhat alike. I’ve noticed that of many gay or lesbian couples. It’s almost like...Narcissus kissing his own reflection. Draw your own conclusion.
