It’s being called the Marseille Kiss. At a Marseille, France, protest against same-sex marriage and the right of same-sex couples to adopt, two straight women decided to launch their own protest against the protesters by making out right in front of them. (From the gaping mouths on the onlookers behind them, we bet some pearls were clutched in fear.) The two young women, identified only as 17-year-old Julia (right) and 19-year-old Auriane (left), explained to gay publication Têtu that the kiss was unplanned and a fitting way for them to show their support for the gay community.

MrMary Weighs In
I don’t understand what is the hang up about gay people. People are people why is someone’s sexual preference important why does it matter? If you like eating at the All You Can Eat Dick Buffet or after work go downtown to eat at the Scissoring Clam and mellow out so what ?
I think the term “gay people” is a divisive terms. Someone is a person and that is enough. Sexual preference is a stupid reason to divide and incite people to behavior inappropriately towards others
On a Side Note
Like Starburst the french are a juicy contradiction. They much more liberal in their sexual views than American. Many of Frances greatest minds have been openly gay, two Andre Gide, Jena Genet, Proust (more bisexual than anything), Verlaine, Rimbaud, Jean Cocteau, Jean Oaul Gaulthier, Collette two heterosexual women can kiss and divide a nation? Also the French are coming around to deal with their misdeed in Algeria now as this article reports
An increasing majority of people in France believe Islam plays too influential a role in their society and almost half see Muslims as a threat to their national identity, according to a poll published on Thursday.
After wiping out a significant the population of Algeria brutally I would figure France wouldn’t consider itself Christian. France’s president Hollande acknowledges 1961 massacre of Algerians. Also France recently made a new attempt on Thursday to fix an annual day of remembrance for those who died in the 1954-62 Algerian war and independence struggles in Morocco and Tunisia that ended more than a century of French colonial rule.
Can two good-looking francaise make out to support Muslims and their contribution to France or at least the many who died as a result of Frances imperialistic propensities.
