    Why not? Maybe that's what the rest of the world needs for a change, instead of the sweetness and light they believe is endemic to Americans.

    Maybe they could use a dose of angry feminine power.


    "Putin, you ! It's 4 AM, I woke up with cramps and the nukes are on the way!!"

    Kind of resonates, doesn't it?

    God forbid that the little darlings EVER have a bad day!

    It is a pretty good indoctrination however...

    By this logic they shouldn't even be required to say thank you - especially if they didn't ask for the gift in the first place.

    Damn, and these are supposed to be EDUCATED people.

    It’s literally just about bodily autonomy. If I don’t want to touch someone who I don’t like or I think is creepy I shouldn’t have to. This could also help to address the problem of family or close friends abusing children who have never been told they could just refuse physical contact.

    And hugging is not going to make that girl more likely to submit to sexual abuse later in life... which is exactly what those jerks are trying to make it look like.

    So, what how do they feel about a little girl on girl tongue action? Or are they like anti- LGBTQRSTUV...?

    A young child successfully defying parental authority? Definitely a candidate.

    The future is set at a young age.

    The correct action in such a situation is to determine the source of discomfort. You know, to actually be a parent.

    It's a dying art; too few truly care about their kids to bother.

    And parental authority be damned.

    That lack of respect and awareness of social expectations will help them adapt more easily to prison.

    Because growing up able to ignore or negotiate with parents only preps a child for conflict with employers and the State, neither of which really give a sh*t what the little beggar thinks.

    Thank goodness for thinking like this, or crime rates might really have declined and I would have had to work longer to get a full pension.

    Agreed, if you are creeped out by uncle Chester follow your own mind.

    Well, hugging great aunt Edna is part of learning that there are social things that you don't like but have to do.
