There is some hoopla about how there were a couple of lesbians who rescued some campers during the shooting in Norway. My opinion: Who the hell cares! Congratulations! You're lesbians! Who the hell cares? I don't give two hoots what you do in the bedroom.
Gay, straight, bi, swingers, bdsm, whatever gets your rocks off, your sex life should not come into something like this. If there were a big deal about two guys or a heterosexual couple doing the same thing, focusing on their sexual orientation would be just as annoying.
Am I supposed to bow down and kiss their butts because they happen to be lesbian? What if there were a headline that read "D/s couple saved a bunch of kids from a crazed gunman." Again, who the hell cares?
When are we going to get past the whole shoving your sexual orientation in my face and because it is same sex I should be even more amazed at anything you do? You're a married couple? Great! Hold hands in the photo-op but don't make your sex life the headline.
Or better yet, have it be an equal opportunity program.
"Heterosexual couple saves lives today!"
"Heterosexual firefighter ran into a burning building."
"Straight Pride Parade This Weekend!"
"Straight cop arrests straight man in armed robbery case."
"Brawl breaks out at a straight bar."
"Heterosexual woman tackles potential rapist saving the life of a heterosexual teen-age runaway."
See how ridiculous this all is? Who the hell cares what their sexual orientation is?
Lesbian or not, kudos to your bravery. The fact that you are a lesbian has nothing to do with it. Keep it out of the headlines. It has nothing to do with what you did.
