This photograph from Reuters shows Jeremy Irons, who received an award for some television series or other, embracing the Presenter of the Awards, Forest Whitaker.
Now I know nothing about the personal life of either of these gentlemen nor do I want to but, fair dinkum, can I ask what is the justification for these two men passionately kissing each other?
At other ceremonies, I've seen a vigorous handshake, even a hug, and plenty of kisses between notables of the opposite sex. But why the eyes closed, lingering embrace between these two men who are probably almost total strangers?
As a heterosexual male and proud of it, I find the photograph absolutely repugnant!
How about you?
