Female sailors’ kiss, a University Daily Kansan front page, and gay marriage

Jim Romenesko writes that the majority of comments about a soon-t0-be-iconic photo of two female sailors kissing were positive. A few were not so positive, such as this one:

“That photo is illustrious of why people instinctive know this country is rotting from the inside out. Whats next a close up shot of bestiality! Jim, Southern CA”



Several weeks ago, the University Daily Kansan, the student paper at KU, ran a front page centerpiece featuring two men kissing, for a story about the barriers to gay marriage in Kansas. It was a bold decision, but elicited very little controversy. In fact, there is a somewhat healthy debate in the comment section. As healthy as can be in such a no man’s land.
