“Get A Room” Make Out Session

I was on a return flight from a business trip from Indianapolis to Detroit, back in 1997. It was a late evening flight and I was upset to begin with because a couple of my colleagues had turned on me at our business meeting in IN so I decided to sit apart from them. I started hearing a commotion behind me and was appalled to see two young men making out. I am talking “get a room” making out. Several men on the flight had asked the gay couple to knock it off. The couple was pretty drunk and proceeded to hurl insults at one man who had expressed disgust at their behavior. One of the gay men yelled at him, “I bet my lover gives better head than your wife!” That is when things started to get really ugly. There were families with children aboard and I really thought that it was going to get physical.

Luckily the flight was near its end, but the conflict raged on during unboarding and into the airport. It was truly a disgusting display of crude, immature, inexcusable behavior. I was never so glad to arrive in Detroit as I was that night.

Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with gay people, my own son is gay, and I have no problem with mild PDA by any couple, gay or straight, but this was beyond wrong.

Why am I NOT surprised that this flight was going to DTW???? Ohhhhh! lol (sorry, I had to. As a flight attendant, I have to say that Detroit flights always have the most….."colorful" passengers of any cities….lol. No offense intended. :@)

And the homos want to be treated like normal people??? They will always be called QUEER!!

Hey John- take your hate and spew it elsewhere.

There are more murderers, rapists, hookers, adulterers, PDA-offenders, etc…. who are heterosexual and even believe in god 🙂

Gays are more normal than most. I'd rather deal with the couple on that "flight from hell" than drunk frat boys/sorority girls ANY DAY.

Bad behavior isn't limited to a single sexual orientation. I've read plenty of stories on this site where rude and uncouth actions occurred among opposite sex couples as well.

Who said anything about HATE? The only thing that I said "specifically" was that Homosexuals want to be treated like "Normal" people….and then they do this? Oh yeah…the last time I spoke to a "Gay" person…they call themselves "QUEER." Yes, I do have Homosexuals as friends….imagine that.

I agree, there are goofballs everywhere that seemingly live moderate lives. Of course, they are not normal. Everybody is abstract to a degree. I don't care about all the sick people in the world…if they expose themselves to public display, I will make them feel like dirt too.

Suggestive and offensive "PDA" should be construed as NOT APPROPRIATE anywhere……regarless of sex/gender. If a two people of the opposite sex were going at it in a plane, I would say something….the same for two people of the same sex. HOWEVER, I would find it MUCH MUCH easier to explain to my 8 year old little boy on why two people of the opposite sex are kissing, etc…compared to two men or two women.

You're the one who made it about sexual orientation first. So out of all of the obnoxious PDAs and drunken behavior, when it's actually gay people doing it they suddenly don't deserve to be considered "normal people?" Your original post was worded in a way that showed that you think gay people aren't entitled to get drunk or have PDAs if they want to be respected for their orientation.

ps- you could always tell your son that kissing is a consensual behavior that PEOPLE engage in when they love each other. You can't shelter him from "nontraditional" families forever- especially since there's a 50% chance that you're… *whispers* divorced! Or perhaps a friend at school's parents are. Times are a-changin'

Wonder what the reaction would have been if it was a dude and a chick making out? Probably not so much outrage as amusement…..

No, I remember the looks on people's faces when I was 17 trying to do a tonsillectomy on my girlfriend without tools. I don't think any kind of display like that is appropriate in public….

That kind of behavior is inappropriate, regardless of sexual orientation. And I agree with Bob – there are rude gay couples, rude straight couples, rude people period out there.

I call BS on your last sentence. Your son isn't gay and you do have a problem with gay couples. Otherwise you simply would have described the couple as a couple that were making out. You also wouldn't feel the need to try to justify yourself by claiming to have a gay son and not having a problem with gay people. Only people with problems with gay people actually say that.
