Is it wrong for parents to kiss their kids on the lips? Especially if it's a Father & his young daughter. Afection is one thing but lip kissing, no way. What's wrong with a kiss on the forehead?
When you really think about it, kissing is pretty gross. It involves saliva and mucous membranes, and it may have historical roots in chewed-up food. Experts estimate that hundreds or even millions of bacterial colonies move from one mouth to another during a kiss. Doctors have also linked kissing to the spread of diseases like meningitis, herpes and mononucleosis.
Are you repressed or something? As long as they aren't slipping them a bit of tongue then I don't see the problem.

Political correctness gone mad! What sort of question is that, next it will be "is it okay for parents to TOUCH their kids".
i remember as a very young kid having a bath with my dad, regularly. In fact I used to look forward to it as we had a great time with my toy planes, boats etc. fast forward to 1995 ish.
My (then) mother in law took some film to Boots to be developed, a couple of the pictures were shots of the dad and his young sons in the bath together. The day before she was due to pick up the photos, the police went to their house and arrested the dad for suspected child pornograhy, in front of the kids.
Just because some people abuse alcohol doesn#t mean we should all stop drinking it
Just because some people make bombs from fertilizer doesn't mean everyone should stop growing flowers.
Just because some men rape women doesn't mean the whole world should stop having sex.
Get the idea?
Seems like there's a hole in my dreams...
i know it's not funny, and the whole episode must have been terrible, but if it didn't happen to you, you'd have to chuckle at the obbserdness (sp) of such a scenario.
Those that want to read whatever they can want all freedoms, but have to understand they can have freedom, but it must be within the law.
^^ Good on Boots, they acted correctly even though their concerns were proven to be ill-founded.
Nothing to do with PC, this is about morals. Bathing with yer kids is even worse than kissing them imo. It's one thing for a mum to bathe with her newborn but as soon as they can walk, such things should stop. As for Dads, they should keep well out of it a bath times I reckon.Originally Posted by myruinedxmas
So how many of you Dads bathe with your kids then? I bet no one admits to doing it. Society judges that sort of thing to be wrong.
My son is 15 months old and walking and I would have no problem bathing with him. I don't give a flying fuck what anyone else thinks either. My son, my business. Being judged by society? That's a bit of a laugh when you look at the things that "society" accepts as normal.
No, it appears to be you who wrote it, not society. Do you have kids?Originally Posted by Banned
more contrived internet chest beating. where is talk radio when you really need it?
We live in hypersexualized times. When everyone's opinion has the opportunity to take center stage--even for a moment--a lot of foolishness gets thrown into the vortex. The Japanese have bathed with their children for centuries. One of the reasons why they're less uptight about it, I guess. The media, the Internet are creating more taboos than they are taking them away, making people self-conscious and confusing normal human relations with sexual overtures. When people start being made conscious of normal human affection, it does create a sick precedent. What's next? Eye contact? Sitting in the same chair? Passing a glass to a girl and not wiping the glass with a specially formulated desexualized cloth? This isn't PC, it's fascism.Originally Posted by Banned

Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.
All this bollocks about society and morals makes me sick. Reminds me of the old AC/DC lyrics.
And you can stick your 9 to 5 living and your collar and your tie
And you can stick your moral standards 'cos it's all a dirty lie
I find it hard to believe that there are people still out there who swallow whole and unquestioningly, the unmitigated crap spewed out of the mouths of government officials and others in positions of (supposed) power.
I am also aware that this thread was started for the purpose of stirring shit up but I like to rant in any case.
