Reminds me of stories of revolution in South America. The crowd literally forces the government to back down.

Yeah, because being punished for loving someone is totallylike being arrested for trying to kill public officials.

Yeah, it isn't like mexico has any other more important crimes cops need to deal with...

I've vacationed there and been on that beach. It's a pretty artsy area but one thing Mexican officials don't appreciate is PDA's the gays. People forget that Mexico is still a VERY Catholic country.

Weird sanctions against Canadians trifecta now in play?
 
2021-02-28 8:27:26 AM  
I pretty firmly believe that when you visit another country, you have chosen to obey their laws.  If they have backwards laws that offend you... don't go.

I find it amusing that the cops backed down when faced by the crowd.  That tells you they're just a couple of petty bullies abusing their authority and had absolutely no confidence that they had either enough respect from the public that they wouldn't be murdered right then and there, and that they also had no confidence in their fellow officers coming out to assist them.

And I'd like to know how much of that crowd was local vs. tourist.  Because that would say a lot about the locals if there were significant numbers of them interceding on behalf of the two tourists.

Finally... WTF?  Why are two Canadians vacationing in Mexico during COVID?

My husband and I are men, my husband and I are occasionally tamely affectionate in public. My husband and I are occasionally out with a friend. Being in the vicinity of another male while I show my husband chased affection is not a "lewd sexual" act. They want to imply the three of these guys were having an orgy in front of a bus of school kids, when it was more likely a couple spending platonic time with a friend. Projection is a hallmark of bigotry.

2021-02-28 8:31:28 AM  
Meh, it's their country so they can do what they like I suppose but it seems like a dumb move for a country so reliant on the tourist industry, particularly when most of those tourists come from nations where same sex relationships are accepted.

Shutting down Gay PDA won't get your head cut off by the Cartels. It's still incredibly wrong of them to do it and no excuse, but I can see their faulty reasoning.

No, ya know what.
Fack these two asshats.

1. Why the fack are you traveling for ANY REASON that's not a literal essential reason.??? Vacation is not essential.

2. Hope they get charged the full amount when they get back to Canada with the forced Isolation in Government Approved Hotels.

3. If they do get sick, let them stay out of the hospital. They chose to be ignorant asshats in a pandemic, willing choosing to go to a country with less than spectacular Isolation and mask wearing policies they don't deserve to be treated.

They just needed to pick a reason other than being gay.. Had they only removed them from the beach for wearing those speedos (just an example), it would have been to applause....  it's always possible to achieve the objective you want while making people think you aren't the bad guy/bigot/racist/homophobe/misogynist or whatever. Pretend you love and support whatever they're doing and get them for something else.   Learned this from watching or government officials I did.

All of Latin America is very Catholic. I live in Costa Rica and marriage equality was (with considerable struggle) only passed last year. They are still debating legality of therapeutic pregnancy termination.

The vatican runs the place - here and in most of Latin America.

When you're in a foreign country you are a guest so follow the local rules. You might not agree with the rules but if you want to live the same way you do at home just stay the fark home.

"Video footage recorded by a local women's right's activist Maritza Escalante on Sunday shows the moment the men were handcuffed together."

Handcuffing any couple together who is alleged to be participating in lewd behavior is only going to escalate the situation.

About a third of the Caribbean countries on the cruise ship routes have anti-homosexuality laws on the books. They unofficially look the other way.... most of the time, because cruises are - or were, pre-Covid - a huge industry, but it pays to look up the laws of where you go.

Mexican police have a tendency to find tourists doing something slightly questionable, tell them it's illegal, and suggest that if a bit of money changes hands they'll look the other way.

They tend to back down if you  stand firm and deny you did anything wrong.

This sounds like one of those cases.

Weird angle from you guys today that it's more important to obey local customs than to allow basic human rights. Gross.

Close. What they don't like is people doing things contrary to local morality in PUBLIC.  They are not saying you can't gay in your rooms or have a donkey show in an adult only club. There are even whole areas set aside for sch things.

Plus México is still a shining bastion of machismo.
 
2021-02-28 9:54:59 AM  
Sounds like Mexico needs to build a wall to keep the gays out, and force the LGBTQ community to pay for it.

If you are visiting a country for a cultural experience, I would agree that their culture should be respected.

If a country is promoting itself as a holiday destination and wants people to come to their beach resorts they should shut the fark up about how their guests live their lives.  The hypocritical approach in Dubai is why I don't plan to go back.  They unofficially say you can come stay with your unmarried girlfriend and drink alcohol in the bars and restaurants, and pinky-swear to try not to notice and put you in prison.  Thanks, I'll go to Turkey where I can actually relax.
