Viewers in a panic after local news station broadcasts gay sailor’s homecoming kiss, but we celebrate this!!!
Two weeks ago and still very current news, News4Jax in Jacksonville reported on U.S. Sailor Kenneth Woodington, who won a raffle to get the “first kiss” upon disembarking USS The Sullivans after returning from seven month deployment to the Persian Gulf and Europe. Naturally, Kenneth chose to kiss his husband, Bryan. The couple mimicked the famous 1945 V-J Day kiss in Times Square.
Asked how they felt about the negative response, the couple tells News4Jax they couldn’t care less. “Honestly, I’m the type of person who doesn’t really care that much about what people say,” Kenneth says. “My grandmother always taught me, she said, ‘You know some people have a different life and this is how they are and you just have to treat them as such, and treat them with kindness and respect,” Bryan adds.
Bill Austin, spokesman for Naval Station Mayport, says that boys kissing boys and girls kissing girls has happened many times before and it’s not an issue for the Navy, which he says has “always been gender neutral and on the forefront of progress.”
