Danish Gay Bar bans Straight Kissing

Postby Brandamn » 04 May 2012, 02:49

A Danish gay bar has sparked international debate after reportedly banning all heterosexual couples from kissing while visiting.

As Pink News and other LGBT sites are reporting, the founder of the Denmark-based lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) advocacy group Homosocialt Fællesskab claims a bouncer at Copenhagen's Never Mind bar told a woman in his party she could not kiss her boyfriend.

"The bouncer replied that it was unacceptable to conduct in that kind of behavior at a gay place and that Never Mind receives a lot of emails from its gay guests concerning the high number of straight guests that visit the bar," Jobbe Joller is quoted as saying. "I asked him if it was not the same as saying that black people are not allowed to kiss in Never Mind, but he disagreed and told me that the owner of Never Mind may decide who can kiss and who can’t kiss in the bar."

He then added: "I told him in a very serious tone that what they had going on was sick, and that LGBT people across Denmark struggled for acceptance and equal rights for all, while Never Mind fought against it."

Never Mind's owner told the Copenhagen Post that he didn't see the "big problem" in his establishment's policy. "I know that we need equal rights, but this is a gay bar," Christian Carlsen is quoted as saying. “We obviously have a lot of guests who aren’t homosexuals and that’s fine as long as they understand that this is a gay bar. The gays can’t go to so many other places to meet each other."

I think this kind of shits all over the concept of equality. What do you think?

A little too extreme IMO and against the equality concept.

As long as they're not bumping their tongues into eachoters tonsils straights can kiss as much as they want for all I care, even in "my" gay bars.
Gross, slimey tonguewrestling should be illegal in public for anyone as far as I'm concerned XD But any cuddling or kissing should be fine anywhere!

^I agree. Flat-out making out should be barred, whether it be between two guys, two girls or a mix of the two. But I see nothing wrong with a person kissing another person.

As wrong as it may sound, but this is just a way to let the straight people feel what the LGBT pple feel when their rights were stripped off.

^ yeah but im pretty sure the straight people in the gay club arent the ones who were stripping any rights from the gay people. If someone said, this is a straight bar, gays cant kiss, then there would be outcry, surely this bigot understands that equality is a two way street.

as an aside, I also agree with everyone saying eurgh to tonsil tennis in public.
