(Newser) – Less than a month after Facebook apologized for removing a photo of two men kissing, the social networking site has axed another gay kiss photo. Facebook did not approve an ad for Greek film Attenberg, which shows two women touching tongues. In a statement on its Facebook page, TriArt Film notes that Facebook did allow an ad for a different movie, which features an intense male-female kiss. "We're confused," says the CEO. See the picture on AdWeek, which notes that the image "is a little off-putting completely separate from the gender issue."

First off, if anyone has actually seen the picture, it's not a picture of two women kissing. It's more reminiscent of two women trying to audition for a role in the ring who share one tongue. This is very much not a gay thing I believe as it is a weird picture! I am one of the more liberal people I know and have given a lot of money to different groups that support gay marriage or counseling for GLBT youth...this is NOT a gay thing, it's a WTF is that picture thing. If they had approved of the ad I bet they would have gotten complaints about the weirdness of the picture from both sides.

I can see the homosexual community is in an uproar over instances such as these, with complaints about their freedom. However, anyone can go too far with anything. What about the freedom of those who have just as much right to be against homosexuality as homosexuals have a right to be homosexual? What about our rights in not wishing to see two men kissing? I do not care how anyone feels about my comment, whether homosexuals feel they have a right to remove my rights to view "clean" content. It is already bad enough, I have just as much right to the Internet as homosexuals do, what is this world coming to when normal people have to fight for their rights? These should be unalienable and untouchable.
