Re: “Homophobic material nixed from Kennywood dive show

AJ.....Dude if we change something every time one person was upset we wouldn't have anything to enjoy. I am all for people having a right to voice their opinion, but the super minority should never set the agenda for the majority. If enough people were offended, fine then get rid of it. Like I said I haven't seen it, so I cannot comment on the specifics of the skit. If only ONE person complains, then that person should buck up and deal with it.

Re: “Homophobic material nixed from Kennywood dive show

ActionJackson...all I am saying is that one person out of how many was offended and for that reason they changed it. I don't condone discrimination, but seriously when hundreds or thousands of people see the show and don't say anything, but one person does, you should not change your product just because of the one person. I get sick and tired of reading about people (businesses and govt.) bending over backwards for such a small portion of the population. I would understand if it was blatantly offensive, but in this case nobody else seemed to even notice the homophobia that was occurring in the show.

Re: “Homophobic material nixed from Kennywood dive show

So one person was offended out of how many who have seen the show and they decide to remove it...great. I have not seen the show and cannot comment on it, but if only 1 person contacted Kennywood to complain, then it couldn't have been that bad/noticeable. So she got 25 of her friends who didn't see the show to write in as well. I am sure they didn't go out to Kennywood to see if it offended them at all, but instead took their friend's word for it. It would be nice if people weren't seals and actually had a mind of their own.
