Much Ado About Nothing

Massresistance has their panties in a bunch over a non-issue. They are breathlessly reporting that the "Dutch to legalise gay sex in public park". and go on and on about the new "danger" to public morality. They are worried about this story from the Telegraph.

Dutch council officials will permit gay sex in public areas but fine dog owners who let their pets off the leash in Amsterdam's Vondelpark.
However, read the same story from another source and you will see that the truth is not what what Massreistance claims.

Dog owners in Amsterdam are angry after the city legalised public sex in one of the city's most famous parks.

Councillors agreed that heterosexual and gay couples could have sex in the Vondelpark which has ten million visitors a year
The city of Amsterdam is simply changing its rules of access to allow discreet public sex (heterosexual as well) in Vondelpark.

Dog owners however are not pleased with the new restrictions on their dogs.

I saw this too.

Could the reason for the disparate treatment of dog owners versus people who have discretely have sex in public possibly be that a dog of its leash could.... hurt someone?

(I meant "a dog off its leash")

Oops.

Not to mention all the disgusting things an unsupervised dog might do.

Imagine enjoying an intimate moment and have some dog come over and piss on your head.

I am sure that is very pleasurable to a lot of people in Amsterdam.
