If you are like me and displays of heterosexual affection are repulsive and make you barf THEN you will LOVE the KISS-IN at Cornell University.
Why am I so anti-straight? Because same-sex public displays of affection are treated with LESS TOLERANCE!!!!!
Give or take 20 students demonstrated with a Valentine's Day Kiss-In on campus....
WAY TO GO:
"Direct Action to Stop Heterosexism sponsored the event, according to kiss-in participant Ashley McGovern ’09. She explained that heterosexism is 'kind of like homophobia except heterosexism has to do with all facets of society … so the normalization of heterosexuality in society.' Heteronormativity refers to the idea that heterosexuality is the 'normal' sexual orientation. This includes the notion that people fall into two discrete categories — male and female — and that sexual relations are normal only between two people of different sexes. DASH didn’t necessarily have sweeping or profound aims for the kiss-in, according to McGovern."
