Oakland A's pitcher Brandon McCarthy blasted baseball stadium's "kiss cams" for selecting two men to spark laughter as immature and homophobic. What do you think? Homophobic, or all in good fun?

Brandon McCarthy proves that attitudes in the United States are moving in the right direction.
I go to a lot of baseball games and never liked the "kiss cam." Gay can be funny at times with good writing and understanding, but this always felt like a stupid middle school "let's act gay to get a cheap easy laugh." It should stop.

I'm glad he stood up. It's funny if it wasn't treated as being wrong, but it is.
Do people at the game applaud when the two men kiss?
I take my boyfriend with me to games all the time. If they showed us on the "kiss cam," I wouldn't think twice about kissing him. I'm sure we'd get booed but so what? I don't need their approval anyway.
Nice to hear Brandon is joining the fight against homophobia. But, I have to say, that's one guy I wouldn't mind kissing on camera!
