Get over it girls you have had your few minutes of media attention, at the end of the day what the heck is all the fuss about. How can you be asked to leave if you were already outside I sort of got lost in the middle a bit I guess you have your own reasons for wanting to go so very very public over something so trivial , I and my partner have been asked to leave an establishment but we didn't feel it necessary to air it all in the media, take your business somewhere else, I personally don't see the necessity to be kissing in public no matter who or what your partner is

I agree with the girls however their pretentious media stint has today caused a lot of personal attacks on me. As a gay high school student, I received several aggressive comments regarding this situation and my supposed 'gay-rights activism'. Move on girls, not the end of the world. Stop being sanctimonious, you're only causing gay youths more discrimination!!!

This is a family restaurant girls. So you shouldn't be dry humping on a seat. Simple as that. Not homophobic just being a friendly, helpful chick.

I got kicked out of Lotus the other weekend, by this logic, does Lotus hate straight people? Maybe i should demand an apology from them!

The point is it's NOT a bar - it's restaurant with a bar - hence folk should expect something approximating common decency - and a long French kiss by any sex I would deem to be inappropriate behaviour - should have put up a sign for all other patrons to yell out "GET A ROOM!!" Might have made them think of others than just themselves and their overt passion."
The incident happened at 2.50am - outside of family restaurant hours. So no claims of indecency around children can be made here.
And "overt passion" ????? It wasn't a french kiss. It was a gesture of affection - the same gesture and heterosexual couple would display in front of their children.

Wow, theres not been this much fuss over a kiss since the first mixed race kiss way back, when captain Kirk (white) kissed lutenant Uhura (black) on TVs Star Trek. Mind you that was a man and woman so they did not get kicked off the enterprise for it but it did raise a few eyebrows at the time. Strange how we view things like kissing (a way to show affection) in public as obscene, although it is much more entertaining to watch people argue, at least you can laugh at them.

Their body language is so shifty and so awkward every time the subject of their behavior is mentioned. They also claim, at first, to of been 'sitting' in a private booth yet proceed to repeatedly say they we're standing. It's obviously clear they are not being honest and have something to hide. I think this issue has been blown way out of proportion and the couple have come too far to back out or change their story. Let's be real, what straight man is ever offended by two girls kissing?

It sucks that these girls were victimized because of their sexual orientation. I had hoped that society was beyond this sort of ignorance. Should have known better.
