Lesbian couple suffer honeymoon hell
Telegraph ^ | September 21, 2011 | Richard Alleyne

Posted on 09/21/2011 2:32:05 PM PDT by NYer

Having tied the knot in a white wedding, a lesbian couple thought the icing on the cake would be a traditional honeymoon along with other young couples.

But the trip turned out to be a nightmare after staff at their resort treated them as if it was not a "real honeymoon" and excluded them from special romantic meals and dances.

Gemma Harman, 24, and Tamsin Harper, 36, said it was the "worst two weeks" of their lives and the "homophobic manner" in which they were treated was "disgusting".

The couple, from Brighouse, near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, decided to go on the trip to a resort in Dominican Republic run by Thomson after their civil ceremony.

As it specialised in honeymoon couples and was run by a major tour operator they thought it would an ideal way to celebrate their union.

But they claim the company refused to acknowledge their holiday as a honeymoon and say they did not receive the special treatment offered to others because they were a same-sex couple. Ms Harman was so angry she contacted a local radio station to complain about "homophobic manner" in which they were treated.

The newly-weds claimed that other couples were treated "like VIPs", being offered special romantic meals at the hotel and having bottles of rum and fruit put in their room, but they received nothing.

When they tried to book a meal, it was never arranged and when they tried to complain, staff were "dismissive".

They were even excluded from a dancing competition because they were not a male and female pairing.

"They just did not treat us the same as everybody else," Ms Harman told Real Radio.

When homosexual couples claim that they "are like everyone else" it's simply a lie. They might believe the lie, and sincerely propose the lie. They may enact legislation to make the lie acceptable. They might sue those who refuse the lie. They may punish those who do not accept the lie. Indeed the whole world may rally around to proclaim the lie and persecute those who refuse to accept it.

"They just did not treat us the same as everybody else,"

Well, duh! You are not like everybody else. You want to flaunt your disorder for attention.

Get a clue: normal people do not want to see you acting up. Book on one of those homo cruises next time and wallow with the others like you.

Get used to it, dykes. We will NEVER accept you as a “normal” married couple.

You want to open a bookstore or a herbalist shop, more power to you.

Just don’t pretend you are a “married” couple. You are lesbian fakers.

“”They just did not treat us the same as everybody else,” Ms Harman told Real Radio. “

Might ask yourself why that is “Ms. Harman.” Perhaps it’s because you aren’t like everyone else. Normal folks don’t demand special treatment based on their sexual practices.

A traditional honeymoon means no one sees you for a long time.

These freaks just want to complain and ruin others, THAT is their honeymoon.

They booked with a gay friendly company. They were told that they would be treated as if they were on their honeymoon.

This is actually a contract case. The company didn’t live up to their end of the bargain. I could see it if it was a surprise to the company, but they booked them as a honeymoon couple.

That’s what I first thought, but I think it’s for left.

I expect there are various package deals; just because some couples got something they didn’t, doesn’t mean they were supposed to get it, too.

I am assuming it was supposed to be (Lft) as in ‘the person to the left in the pic’.

I would say that if they booked it as a ‘honeymoon’ and the services provided to the other couples was advertised to them as being part of the deal - then they got screwed.

They should take their money elsewhere. Lesbos perhaps. ;)

“And do you intend to have children right away?”

A plurality, some say the vast majority of dykes are man hater’s.

What’s really funny is they still MUST HAVE man seed to conceive and it drives em crazy.

Of course, thanks.

I can’t imagine booking a honeymoon vacation and then finding these two fat lesbians out on the floor dancing next to us, kissing etc.

I would leave the whole shebang.

So let me guess here. Gemma’s the butch? She does sort of echo Buddy Hackett. Poor babies. Maybe they should have vacationed in San Fran. or kept in the states where people are too intimidated to say, “Marriage is between a man and a woman.” There they would get false platitudes by many who laugh at them behind closed doors in disgust.

seems like the local law would apply.

given the nature of business I can not imagine NORMAL couples wanting to have these sexual “alternative lifestyle” persons in their midst.

Perhaps they should have a seperate resort for the 1% of the 2% that want to simulate normal marriage.

they did not receive the special treatment offered to others because they were a same-sex couple.

According to rights of ownership, the owners of property have the right to decide how their property is used and disposed of. Customers have the right to refuse to do business with those owners if they do not like how they run their business. Everything is done on a voluntary basis with no use of force.This is how conflicts are avoided.

They put up with it for two weeks?? And now they're saying it was the worst two weeks of their life. Sounds like the resort just wasn't gay enough for them.

I bet they were pretty damn rude to everyone.

Furthermore, I would like to add that I don't respect their marriage either. *spits on the ground*
