    Re: No Hugging In School???

    I never got that: hugging to say hi to friends. I think it's strange - must be a cultural thing because i certainly wasn't raised that way (evidenlty: I'm not from the south - I only live here)
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Took it too far. Hugging be acceptable, groping be not.

    Forgive me for this, but how old are you?

    I have a sophomore in college, and a sophomore in high school. They hug everybody who's their friend.

    It is pretty common here in the north. It isn't a 5 minute event with heavy breathing. It is a handshake and quick rap around the back...then we move on.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    It's a girl thing. Many of the guys around here couldn't be seen even doing the Sopranos hug (the reach over, pat on back 2-3 times).

    A study was released saying 8 hugs a day was the minimum threshold for therapeutic effect from human contact. Wish I could find it, it was in ze newspaper.

    Also theres no hugging in the south cause hugging is for homos and lesbos who squeeze their boobs together. oh... we know...

    I am with the lesbians on this. I like it when they squeeze their boobs together or on me. I am pro hugging.

    But what no longer seems apparent is to deal with offenders rather than to unduly punish the innocent. With the way society is today, no way in hell I would ever want to jump in a time machine. And, my family and friends, we hug all the time. I am not in any way apologetic to the anti huggers out there. Its a human thing to do.
