Modern Family, a Kiss, and the "Ick" Factor


There is much in the entertainment news regarding the missing kiss between the two gay character on ABC's "Modern Family." The hetero couple Claire and Phil kiss at the airport, but Cameron and Mitchell hug.

So a campaign has begun for a kiss between the two.

They do kiss on ABC's "Brothers and Sisters," don't they?

Why the hesitancy?

Because of the "ick" factor: the idea of two men kissing in this society may lead to sex, while the idea of two women kissing in public is more permissible, especially among many heterosexual men.

"Ick" and "Yuck" factors matter in this largely heterosexual culture.

I say: kiss and be kissed!

The world needs more kissing.

Pace!

Just think this will be such a non issue in 10 years......like DADT, but why do we have to wait.....what, the Tooth Fairy will let everyone know when it's ok?
