"Family Party Candidate for Northland, Melanie Taylor, is concerned over The Edge FM competition being held nationwide at 4.30pm today.
The station is encouraging girls to publicly kiss for about 20 seconds, with one girl/girl couple winning a trip to Melbourne to see Katy Perry, singer of the hit song "I kissed a girl and I liked it."
Shouldn't the Family Party care about actions where people really get hurt?
No it shows itself to be oppressed, shame filled and judgmental.
Some simple points:
1. It is not a crime for two girls to kiss in New Zealand, never had been. It is not sex. It is not dirty, it is an expression of affection and love.
2. Most men (especially when you exclude gay men) and quite a few women like it. If you don't, then look away.
3. Why do you think it is acceptable for young children to be smacked in public but not for young women to kiss in public?
4. Many families believe that kissing is acceptable and positive, just because you teach that it is shameful and that children should grow up feeling shame about their bodies, doesn't mean the rest of us should buy into this abusive philosophy.
Leave peaceful people alone, let women snog in public and get concerned about something that hurts people you busybody ayatallohs!
