Excelent point.

Just when I thougth that schools couldn't get more ridiculous than teaching creationism, this comes along.

To quote the great Poppy "On this issue there is no debate! And no other intelligent person can think otherwise!"

I used to kiss my female friends as a wee little thing all the time, a bit like they do on the Continent as a sign of friendship.

Anyway, my cousin's daughter who is four got in trouble at infant school for kissing a boy. I don't understand why she should get in trouble for it.

Why are people so averse to affection in English-speaking countries?

That said, this child wasn't being affectionate so much as being annoying and a low-level bully. It seem harsh to suspend him for that.

It's the history of puritanism.
That said, we're not as bad as the Far East. Even married couples don't hold hands in public, in Japan (although that's changing a little with some of the younger generations).

Doing something this heavy handed to a small child is trauma. This is very twisted.
