In the summer of 2000, two women were thrown out of a Los Angeles Dodgers game for kissing. You know, that normal thing that most happy couples do when they are together. They were surrounded by eight security guards and escorted out because they were exposing children to disgusting acts of horror, like love and engaging in public displays of affection that every straight couple engaged in that same evening.
Fast forward 15 years and people are now cheering as a gay couple kisses on the Jumbotron at that same stadium. Sure, it took us 15 years to get here, but at least we're here.
Last Saturday at the Dodgers game versus the Arizona Diamondbacks, the infamous Kiss Cam was making its usual way around the stadium, putting couples up on the big screen so people could see them awkwardly smooch. The camera then landed on two men, which used to be a stupid joke before most professional sports organizations banned it, but this was no joke. This was just another couple, and the Dodgers wanted to include them in the corny fun.
