    Personally, I don't see this as a good thing...

    “When Alyssa Navarrette, a third-year student who is studying anthropology and art, came home for her first visit after starting college, she was taken by surprise when her mother hugged her.

    “If you don’t want to be touched and your mom wants to hug you, you should be allowed to say no,” Ms. Navarrette said. “It’s about having autonomy over your own body.””

    • Shove a rake up her fannyset
    • I'm not sure how anyone could think this sort of thing is good, outwith inhuman snowflake robots.detritus
    • I'm now wondering about old QBNer mx_ond...detritus
    • yeah but she had no issues with the love and affection her mother gave her as a baby, never mind all the all shit she was covered in. The sleepless nights._niko
    • maybe she should also sue her for sexual assault for making her breast feed ffs._niko
    • Oh my...OBBTKN
    • Seriously, I still feel the trauma of being forced to kiss all my aunts as a kid. I remember not wanting it and being forced to.oey
    • Forced to like in having to do it against my will. I'ts my body and if I don't want to hug or be hugged that's my decision.oey
    • Now I'm gonna read that article. Maybe it's just something stupid maybe not.oey
    • Hm...interesting. I mostly agree. but in case of my Mum, she can hug me as much as she wants.oey
    • people need to find their spot on the pyramid of victimhood. without victimhood you have no social value. this is the world they live in.Gnash
    • imagine a couple of generations ago, in the cold wet trenches of europe, watchng your friends scattered into tiny bloody pieces, not knowing when your last_niko
    • breath would be, scared shitless...what would those men give to see and hug their mothers again._niko
    • _niko - as I've said many times before "we need a war". Like an old-style dirty war. Perhaps our gen. needed one too, but now, certainly. So f'ing precious.detritus
    • We're too smart an ape for our own good. Our imaginations are too big, we're too capable of abstraction. Without distraction all we do is disappear up our ass.detritus
    • I don't think that's true. These are teething problems of a species that is growing up. Becoming more ethical.set
    • The over the top pathetic-ness of a lot of PC shit kind of has to happen in order to bring everything to light. We'll settle down eventually...set
    • ... to a far better, happier, kinder, more connected society having outed all of the wrong that's been intrinsic to our civilisation for so long.set
    • We're toddlers having a tantrum at the moment.set
    • To say we need a war is one of the most fucked up things I think I've ever heard. I know where you're coming from, but still. That's ridiculous.set
    • No, I literally think we should have a war, set. I was being actually absolutely literally literal. Not in any way hyperbolic or exaggerative for effect.detritus
    • Actually, I might be literal if I could guarantee I wouldn't be involved. It's other people that need to learn The Lesson.
      Not me.

    • idiots on either end of the political spectrum are calling the shots, scary days. war is incoming although I would never say we need one. Ugh. The centre groundfadein11
    • has never felt so appealing in my 40+ years.fadein11
    • but that may be an age thing and having kids, having children automatically makes you (or did me) crave some kind of stability. Not looking for a row, justfadein11

    • We had two absolutely colossal global wars, one of which ended a hundred years ago. Those two wars didn't improve anything.Continuity

    • Part of the problem is that the internet makes it easy to blow things out of proportion. This is one person's opinion, at a fringe college w/ about 300 studentsyuekit

    • saying that we need a war because there's someone who doesn't want to have physical contact with someone else...???oey
    • besides this is one person, what the fuck do we know what's going on with her life what she has been gone through?oey

    • A QBN a touchy feely bunch? Ewww. Get off my stuff!!kingsteven
    • seems totally reasonable. i think if you're appalled by this you're probably known in some circles as "that guy that's always touching people" tbh.kingsteven
    • And here I thought physical contact was a natural way of bonding among humans.Continuity
    • "he wasn't breast fed and now he just hugs all the time"... or "he would rather consider sending an entire generation to war than ask for a hug."kingsteven
    • fucking loopers.kingsteven
    • I don't think it's anti-touch Continuity, babies of course require it but physical touch is social currency in animals... children cry for contact, apes ask tokingsteven
    • be groomed. and a punch in the face is a natural physical response if its unwelcome... if that was acceptable in human society my NYE would have turned real badkingsteven
    • in my experience people need to give physical contact more than people need to receive it... but a it's powerful thing when they do.kingsteven
    • it's generally the people screaming endlessly about this stuff that have the problem, as yuekit said, fringe stuff, move along, bigger fish to fry.fadein11
