    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.

    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.

    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'm from Southern California and live in Oregon. I've always hugged, appropriate to the person I'm greeting. I still hug and most all of my friends and all of my family hug too and they are from all over the map. Maybe particular cultures?

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    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.
