Why is it that girls can hold hands on public and guys cant?
All the time in Malaysia and now in Australia, i see girls holding hands walking around and no one stares or says anything. Even when it is clearly a lesbian couple, having one tomboy and one taking on the girl role, no one really bothers and take a second look.
Having 2 guys hold hands and people will stare and talk. Words will fly and a scene will begin followed by look backs and glaring eyes at the couple.
Couples in Australia hold hands and kiss in public all the time. Something you dont see really often in Malaysia.
During Valantines Day this year, i saw this 2 guys holding hands walking around the city with a rose on one of the other hand. Felt quite happy seeing how sweet the couple was. Just made me wish I could hold the hand of someone special during that day.
Anyways, I still salute on how brave the couple was. Guess when you are really with someone that makes you happy, you wont care what people thinks. Heh. I wish i can hold penguins hand again..
My point is, i feel that its unfair that society looks at gay couples and lesbian couples so differently. At least from what i see...
