Two gay men kiss in a pub, are thrown out for being 'obscene.' Gay media tweets it everywhere, protest takes place, egg-substitute and pub owner's face is in alignment. Victory for common sense.<br><br>
I've now been having a protracted facebook argument with a friend of a friend about this. Their argument centres around that the pub owner has the right to decide what is allowed in his pub.<br><br>
Mine is that by its very nature a public house has no social contract beyond what already exists in other public places, and that the pub owner had no right to evict them, as a KISS is not obscene or even overly sexual. In fact, a kiss is an individual and positive action, and more should be given, regardless of gender.

Yes, I saw this on the news recently. You wouldn't expect that treatment in that area of London honestly.

Yea, totally agree. I thought the protest was so positive and charming as well, and completely unexpected. What pressure to put on those guys to stay together now though XD

That's just stupid. A peck on the mouth being obscene? The landlord needs to get out more.

What a stupid argument. Would said pub owner be able to kick out a person of a different race?

My point exactly. This person also called it 'homosexual activity,' which is the most offensive way of making a kiss sound like a militant gay separatist action :p

You must remember this<br>
a kiss is still a kiss<br>
a sigh is just a sigh<br>
the fundamental things apply<br>

I just saw an article that a picture from the protest the "kiss in" was removed off facebook. The guy who posted it was sent a warning about sexual and inappropriate pictures<br><a href="http://gawker.com/#!5792874/the-gay-kiss-photo-facebook-doesnt-want-you-to-see" target="_blank">http://gawker.com/#!5792874/the-gay-...ant-you-to-see</a>

Someone opens a pub in Soho and doesn't want homosexual customers? Shrewd business move.</div>

Soho has been taken over by the Albanian mafia thesedays. It wouldn't surprise me if they saw homosexuals as bad for their ruthless sex trade in illegal immigrant female prostitutes.

And in response a huge number of people have reposted the story (myself included) on their wall and also changed their profile pictures to two men kissing.
