This Boston Globe article starts off talking about gay men having sex in public in the Fens neighborhood. In another era, this would be a precursor to an article about the problem of such activity happening in a public place, but this is not that era. Instead, the problem defined by the article is muggings and other crimes going on in the area, compelling the creation a new group calling itself the Pink Pantha Patrol, which has been set up to patrol the area and prevent crime against men engaging in public acts of lewdness.
I’m not against neighborhood crime watches, but the Globe‘s casual acceptance of gay sex in the bushes is somewhat disturbing. This is life in the Blue States today, I guess.
