Gay couple says smooch on the cheek got them kicked out of mall3/6/2013
When is kissing on the cheek considered inappropriate behavior? Apparently when you're a gay couple at Roseville, California's swanky Westfield Galleria Mall. Daniel Chesmore and Jose Guzman admit to holding hands on Saturday but don't understand why a cheek smooch was enough to get them kicked out by a security guard. The mall cop told them that they were violating the mall's personal conduct policy, even though that policy doesn't have a single rule about public displays of affection. And the local Fox station spent an entire afternoon watching straight couples kiss and hold hands without incident. "I feel like we're always treated differently because we’re gay," Guzman said. "It makes me sad." [Source]
