Caution: Public Pervert Crossing
It's thoughtful of Holland to show a little consideration for those who haven't yet completely succumbed to degeneracy:
A park near Amsterdam has unveiled information signs pointing out spots where officials say gay men are known to have sex, so visitors are not taken by surprise.
The signs "clearly indicate what is happening in each zone; also those where gay men are known to practice 'cruising'," municipal spokeswoman Manon Koffijberg said.
Cruising is a slang word used to describe the act of trawling for casual sex.
"If you don't want to be confronted by a vision of that sort, the signs allow you to avoid specific areas," Ms Koffijberg said.
The De Oeverlanden park in Slotervaart, south-west of Amsterdam, is known as a place where homosexuals from all over the Netherlands and elsewhere in Europe go in search of sex partners.
Ms Koffijberg said that while having sex in public was against the law, the park has been used for this purpose for so long that it has become "gedoog", a Dutch word for tolerating unwanted behaviour.
I'm guessing the signs won't be necessary when Muslims become a majority in Holland, which could happen within a few decades.
On a tip from V the K.

This is cause for celebration. It's not happening in the US or Britain for once!!! Hurray!

This is good news for George Michael and Boy George.

Oh don't worry we'll get to that point as well...first step is the "hate crime" legislation that is about to be passed. You won't be able to say a word.

Disgusting. If you know where this is happening why not go arrest them?
And Obama wants us to be more like Europe...........

isn't it illegal to have sex in public parks? This is like putting up a sign to warn people they might be stabbed. F your signs you stupid liberal idiots, and hire security to keep the aids infested homos away

But.... but... I thought the only reason gays cruised for public sex was because the oppressive, patriarchal society forced them into the shadows. I thought with full gay tolerance and marriage rights, public gay sex would become a thing of the past? That's what the gay marriage advocates say.
Is it possible that... GASP... the left is lying?

RightofReagan, this is Holland we're talking about. I don't know much about their specific laws, but they're widely known to be pretty lenient towards matters related to vice (i.e. drug use, sexual acts).

I was hoping they would show what these signs look like... Are they using pictograms that depict the acts warned of?
Maybe I'll come up with a few of my own...

Don't they have poison ivy over there? Have a word with the groundskeepers, voila! Problem solved.

Gregory, it's an equally valid lifestyle! Admirable, even. Perfectly normal and healthy, doesn't constitute a public health hazard or anything like that.

Right on as far as it goes. Good comment. But, seriously, is there any reason they have to do this? There are gay bars, discreet public conveniences, gay nightclubs and comedy venues, why DO they need to do this? Seriously.

Didn't some British firemen get disciplined for doing exactly the same thing (stumbling across fudge being packed in public places) a while back?
