SEATTLE -- A lesbian couple says a peck on the lips nearly got them tossed out of a recent Seattle Mariners baseball game at Safeco Field, reports KOMO News in Portland, Ore.

As reported on, Sirbrina Guerrero said she gave her date a small kiss, but a mother sitting nearby with her son complained to security.

"And he (the security guard) goes, 'There's a lady whose son says he saw you guys making out, and I did, too. And you have to stop.' And I said, 'Well, we weren't making out, but we were kissing, and I'm not going to stop,'" Guerrero told KOMO News.

"(The security guard said) the mom doesn't want to explain to the kids why two girls are kissing. So I said, 'Well, I'm not going to stop, so you'll have to kick me out. So he said, 'So, I suggest you leave then,'" she said.

Safeco Field officials sent KOMO News the ballpark's code of conduct that reads, "displays of affection are not appropriate in a public family setting."

However, Guerrero said they observed heterosexual couples kissing at the game, and they were not ordered to cease or exit.

KAMO News reported that Safeco officials were questioning all staff members involved. They said their security guards would never target same-sex couples.
