NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) A lesbian couple is asking for changes at Dollywood after an employee asked one of the women to turn her T-shirt reading "marriage is so gay" inside-out to avoid offending others on a recent visit to the Tennessee theme park complex.
Olivier Odom and Jennifer Tipton said Tuesday they want the park to be more inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender families after Odom was asked to reverse her shirt when they visited Dollywood Splash Country next to the Pigeon Forge amusement park. The story was first reported by WBIR-TV in Knoxville.
Dollywood spokesman Pete Owens said on Tuesday that Dollywood is open to all families, but their dress code policy is to ask people with clothing or tattoos that could be considered offensive to change clothes or cover up.

If I wore a Confederate flag shirt to the park, I wouldn’t be surprised if I was requested to turn it inside-out. But that’s the park’s right. I wouldn’t be surprised if she wore the shirt just to get a reaction and cause a stink.
As best I remember, Dolly herself has no issues with homosexuals, and is well-liked and respected in the gay community.
You have to try to look that ugly. Really.
I see, so now we cant possibly be offended . . . only the PC types?
Reminds me of the time I saw some creep at a Jason’s Deli wearing a “Everybody Has AIDS” T shirt . . . I was hoping management would ask him to leave.
“We are allowed to offend you, but if you offend us we will sue!”
The mere sight of this “couple” is offensive to about 97% of the population
thats a woman??
Card carrying member of the nags no doubt.
What a beautiful couple. They will certainly have some beautiful offspring.
Not-a-product-of-rape-homo thread. There goes my theory that all Dykes are rape victims. They don’t make bags thick enough.
At a gay wedding, how do you tell if the bride is blushing?
Better if it is two “women.” People like that should not be able to reproduce.
Why do so many “lesbians” go out of their way to appear mannish???? Do they want to be men?
One of the reasons I love Dollywood and why we take our children there. I am sick and tired of the gay agenda being shoved on us as a civil rights issue. It is a choice issue and a choice they are free to make. But I am free to not associate with the perversion of those who want to mandate and take away my choice.
Private property. Follow the rules or get the @#&%^$! out.
Nasty! I would just like “her” covered up ‘cause she’s gross! But I think Dollywood is owned by the Herschend family (Silver Dollar City in Branson), and they are very conservative.
Its worse then that. They look like aging men, no penis, low earning potential and having raging pms. Who the hell would be attracted to that?
Leave ‘em alone. They’re just trying to be dicks.
OMG, your comment cracked me up. lololololol
>>”Nasty! I would just like her covered up cause shes gross!”<<
There is a difference between covering a tightly cropped (pointy) head and being hidden. One is a matter of tact, one is a matter of life and death.
I don’t want to see her man arms just like I don’t want to see Michelle Obama’s. That doesn’t mean I want either woman to wear a Niqab or Burqa. To compare that is silly.

That sure looks like a man on the right.
not really, to some it comes naturally....
her hate, just "effervesces"...
*sorry...for the hurt eyes / "tossed" foodstuffs.*
It was an inappropriate shirt - has nothing to do with “inclusiveness.” They should not have been wearing that in a family oriented theme park in front of families and children. That’s the bottom line. The park has the right to ask for common decency on the part of its guests - with an emphasis on the fact they are guests. Unless they have evidence that anyone else would have been permitted to wear clothing with inappropriate phrases on it besides them, they have no case.
I will have to sleep with the lights on, rocking back and forth and crying hysterically.
Who has the photo “That which is seen cannot be unseen?”
well....I said, I was sorry......
Here's that pic., you desperately requested.
