Response to Sex at Vimy Ridge

I think the thing that bothers me most about this is that I really, really don't like the idea of the Vimy memorial being known as a place for swingers to hang out. I don't think that this type of activity is appropriate or acceptable at a memorial whether it be for war dead or any other historical event. Whether or not the souls of the dead would approve or not is not the issue (As suggested by some of people at the link provided). The memorial exists for the living to pay homage to the dead so it's what the living think that matters. The swingers of France have a whole country to defile and from what I understand there are many scenic locals that they can use without offending a country that sacrificed so many young men's lives for their benefit.
