    According to young turks news channel on youtube, it's been reported that a 6 year old boy kissed a girl, on her hand allegedly, because he liked her.  And it's also been confirmed, that the little 6 year old girl that was kissed likes the boy as well, so she didn't mind the kiss.  However, the boy was suspended by the principal because it was deemed an act of sexual harassment.  I'm not kidding either. the principal literally accused the boy of sexual harassment for kissing the girl's hand, and suspended him for it.  Now, the mother is forced to explain to her child what he did wrong because he doesn't even know what the term sex even means, so what are your thoughts?

    Personally, if i was the boy's father, i'd just tell that teacher and the principal to go f**k themselves, as I honestly don't see how that kid did anything wrong.  However, that's just me.  Anyways, what are your thoughts?

    Anyways, here's a link to the video for anyone who wants to know more:

      Common sense is a thing of the past. Im with you Steven. Hopefully his parents will help him get thru this quietly and without further incident so that it can be forgotten.

      That is really ridiculous.  These are kids!  I think it is sweet they are still at an age where they can be open with feelings and emotion.  I guess as we grow, that is squelched and very sad that a school would take such action in such an obviously inappropriate way.  I hope it doesn't scar that poor kid too much!

      Although it does not change your point, or the ridiculousness of the "sexual harassment" charge, I did see a slightly different version of the story that I think I remember as coming from the girl's mom.

      In her version it was the second time the kid did it - the first time he kissed her on the cheek. And the girl's mom said the girl did not like it - or the boy.

      I believe the boy's story that she did "like him too'"

      This is just one more example of the craziness of "Political Correctness," and "Zero Tolerance" policies!

      This is ridiculous, we all know that, don't we? Have we all become so fearful as to demonize innocent association among children?

        Obviously some of us have. Care to take a guess where I think the impetus for this change came from?

      Educated people eh, everything to them is black and white, but while they continue to pursue the black and white they miss the myriad of colours that make up humanity.

    That story is just so odd.  Thanks for sharing it with us, Steven.  I can't believe the poor kid got suspended!  It doesn't sound like the girl felt threatened or harassed.  So why make such a big deal out of it?  Sometimes I think I just don't understand modern times.  Its so much better to have one's hand kissed by a boy than to be bullied by a boy.  It seems like a very tender gesture to me.  The kids were only six; I don't believe there was any sexual approach intended at all.

    God bless the Religious Right, where even harmless acts of childish romance are wickedness and lasciviousness.

      So you attribute this to the prudishness of the Religious Right - instead of the crazy Political Correctness and Zero Tolerance policies fostered by the Left?

      Hmm... I would like to offer a few choice words to describe why and how wrong I think you are, but I must refrain because they might offend you, and heaven knows it's not right to offend anyone. Or they might infer a few deficits in your thought process, which of course you are not responsible for, or even worse, I might run afoul of HP's Zero Tolerance policy for slanderous statements and get banned - so...

        In this case, I agree with you. It is much the same as legislating the size of big gulp soda containers. We can always take a basically sound concept and go too far.

      Hi, Z, It would be a stretch for me to say that this is the M.O of the religious right. While there are many that question any need for recognition of the concept of sexual harassment, of whom I will consistently oppose, this case is taking an otherwise valid concern and going too far............

    Logic has completely flown out of the window in this age of Political Correctness and Zero Tolerance.  The Zero Tolerance school policy has gone TOO FAR.

    I'm just amazed that anyone would attribute this event to either the left or right. Surely, some crazy neanderthal who poses as a parent is responsible for this madness. Doesn't matter which side of your bread is buttered, what kind of parent would want to put their kids through this madness???

    Intolerable adult behavior. Let's remember kids are kids.

    If the girl did feel uncomfortable, then it would be right to discipline the boy for inappropriate behavior. If, however, the girl did not mind having her hand kissed, then the children should be left alone.

    Well, actually, perhaps not left entirely alone. At the very least, someone should sit the children down and make sure that they understand boundaries. It is never too early to make sure that little boys and girls understand that it is not alright to kiss someone who does not want to be kissed, and that it is all right for someone to say no. Other than that, though, let them be.
