Do advertisements targeting any other segment of the touring population focus on the sexuality of the inhabitants at the destination? Maybe we should compare this to "sex tourism" in places like Thailand. Is this really so different? Granted, Thailand is known specifically for child prostitution. -- But isn't that where this slippery slope will take us?First, have you seen the ads for "Sandals"? Before they recently changed its policy, Sandals only allowed heterosexuals to their vacation spots. Or maybe you've seen the ads for the Pocono's heart shaped bathtubs and heterosexual couples' "adult "activities. Finally, maybe you've seen the ads for Disneyworld. Have you EVER seen them have a same sex couples in their commercials? I've seen senior couples, couples with children and opposite sex honeymooners, even a commercial with a child explaining the existence of his little brother (due to the parents "getting together" at a Disney resort). Once again Ms. Massresistance is wrong.
Secondly, a common tactic of the right is to associate homosexuals with child pornography, prostitution or abuse when intelligent individuals know that it is a ridiculous analogy. The "sex tourism" industry of Thailand is ILLEGAL and affects children. NO ONE is Massachusetts is advocating that, at least I haven't heard or seen it (what newspapers do Ms. Massresistance get?). We are talking about adults here. I wish Ms. Massachusetts would get her mind out of the gutter and STOP thinking about sex with children. It's about the protection of children.
If the "gay" tourists are led by our tourism agency to the best "gay" nightclubs in Boston, how long before some of them take the next step? (Activists are already working to lower the age of sexual consent, and decriminalize prostitution. Then who can object to child prostitution, as long as the kid is over 12?... or 11? or 10?)WHO and WHAT is she talking about? Who are the activists who are for lowering the age of consent? Who is advocating for prostitution? Again this woman is obsessed with sex with children! I mean, she believes that we think "Oh, I'll go to a nightclub tonight, if I don't get lucky, tomorrow, I'm going to hangout at the playground"
This is just ridiculous!
