Scandal in Scandinavia

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A Swedish lesbian couple who were thrown out of a Stockholm restaurant in 2003 for kissing won an appeal Monday against an earlier court ruling that cleared the restaurant owner of sexual discrimination.

The Court of Appeals in Stockholm ordered restaurant owner Aziz Cakir to pay 50,000 crowns ($7,100) in damages and to cover the legal costs of Sweden's ombudsman against sexual discrimination, HomO, which filed the appeal.

It's hard to say what is more amazing about this story; that the Swedish sexual discrimination ombudsman is actually called "Homo" or that a guy would not want to see two girls kissing. And they say the Swedes are sexually liberated? Poppycock!
