No Touching! Political Correctness Gone Amuk?
#1
This brings up memories of some of my worst experiences in the military, dealing with punishment and enforcement of rules. If one is to be corrected or punished, then ALL are to be corrected or punished in mass. Does it make sense? What do you think?

Quote:Va. School's No-Contact Rule Is a Touchy Subject

Fairfax County middle school student Hal Beaulieu hopped up from his lunch table one day a few months ago, sat next to his girlfriend and slipped his arm around her shoulder. That landed him a trip to the school office.

Among his crimes: hugging.

All touching -- not only fighting or inappropriate touching -- is against the rules at Kilmer Middle School in Vienna. Hand-holding, handshakes and high-fives? Banned. The rule has been conveyed to students this way: "NO PHYSICAL CONTACT!!!!!"

He got up from his ASSIGNED table and put his arm around his girlfriend?

This school has a lot more trouble than just a "keep your hands to yourself" rule. Discipline this strict should be reserved for problem children so bad they have to be separated from the rest. Like Military Schools and such. This shouldn't be the case for an every day school.

These children are likely to grow up to be cold people who have trouble making attachments.

You know something, that is one of the wonderful things about children: watching them act so loving and friendly. So the school wishes to suppress this natural proclivity to show nonsexual affection?

Big Brother is watching you.

Well, I'm not jumping up and down in a state of extreme glee.

Can you imagine what will happen to these kids when they grow up, especially in bed? Shock They will be the most unsatisfying partners ever.

That may be true, but it is only a part of what happens when people are socially repressed.

Alot of them will be really weird. It's not a coincidence that Marilyn Manson went to a Catholic school were he was beaten with a ruler daily, and was forced to fear God. Guess what happens, he becomes a freak. Just let kids be.

Have you not observed his 'strange' behaviour, his hatred of religion, and his thinking? I have always considered him to be a prime candidate for having been abused in childhood, to have such feelings. He is one screwed up little puppy.

I didn't like his style to begin with, so I don't really pay attention to him. Come to think of it, I ignore 90% of the people over there.

At least the Beavises are entertaining.
