Shaking my Head

We have lost our fucking minds.

From the St Louis Post Dispatch:


A 13-year-old junior high school student was given two days of detention after school officials spotted her hugging friends after school last Friday.

Megan an eighth-grade student at Mascoutah Middle School, was hugging her friends goodbye after school Friday when vice principal saw her and told her she would receive two after-school detentions.

The Principal had previously warned Megan that she was in violation of the school's policy on public displays of affection after she was seen hugging a student at a football game.

The school's policy says that “displays of affection should not occur on the campus at any time.”

Mascoutah's Superintendent said today that the district's policy helps prevent misunderstandings and unwelcome expressions of affection.
