OK, UH, WHEN YOU FIRST PERSONALLY RAN INTO THEM WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION, AND IN WHAT CONTEXT?
When I personally ran into them my reaction was one of unbelief. It, it, it really was, it was difficult for me to think that people would flaunt something this way. It's perhaps not a polite thing to mention but about the only close personal encounter I remember having had was coming out of a bank building one morning, to see these two young men in very short, shorts holding hands with their arms around each other and gazing into each others eyes with rapture. That sort of thing may have become commonplace since but at the time it sort of did something.
