TIME marks gay marriage debate with edgy
foldout cover

Henry Luce is probably spinning in his grave. TIME magazine has keyed its coverage of this week's two days of oral arguments at the U.S. Supreme Court concerning gay marriage with an edgy foldout cover. According to Mashable, the magazine has been trying to push for more provocative covers lately. The cover features a gay male couple and (separately) a lesbian couple in a full-on mouth-to-mouth embrace. The arty black and white photos are by Peter Hapake.

full-on mouth-to-mouth embrace -- isn't that what most people call a "kiss"?

Notably — for those of us who view between the lines, anyway — we are compelled to wonder why Time opted for a open-mouth lesbian kiss and a closed-mouth gay kiss.

What's the implied message here? That an open-mouth gay kiss would be just too over-the-top? That women are more lascivious (and that men are prudish)?

I mean, don't we have to wonder?
