Gays Take Street As Their Own

Roman homos claimed a slice of the historic city yesterday. Led by gay group Aricay, several hundred men and women gathered at Via San Giovani in Laterno and renamed it “Gay Street”. Sodomy Street simple didn’t have the same ring and now gay street will be “point of reference for the gay and lesbian community.”

The move comes as activists continue to protest last week’s arrest of two men kissing outside The Colosseum. The couple claims they only kissed, but Roman police insist their action went further than a simple lip lock. Hundreds of gays staged a kiss-in last week and plan to do the same this weekend.

See? Activism can be sexy…

    And activism can be stupid and counterproductive.

    Like toxic baby formula and Marlboros, the US has exported yet another bad idea.

    Kiss-ins are merely self-deluding exercises in being “naughty” by overgrown children who haven’t yet been politically potty trained. They might as well simply be giggling in unison, “POO POO!!! POO POO!!! MOMMY, POO POO!!!”

    Send these cardboard Don and Donna Quixotes to the next attempted demonstration in Moscow. They’ve shown they’re asses; let’s see if they have any balls.

    That “simple” should be “simply”. Where did the writer go to school? Geesh!
