Sorry, but you really do have some strange problem with it, compared to many other countries.
I saw a "what would you do" piece where they had a couple kissing in the street, and people were extremely awkward about it all, as if they were
seeing two aliens making out.
These people were almost childish, and self-righteous too, giggling like teenagers or suggesting that it was "highly inappropriate".
In the UK, people generally wouldn't notice. If they did, they certainly wouldn't have something bad to say about it, on the whole. Of course, if it
were a gay couple, that would be different (as it would in the US), but even straight people get really odd reactions for it in the US.
Yes, there are some countries out there where such things are frowned upon even more, but those countries are not the subject of this thread, America
is, and the response to people holding hands. As a moderator admitted, he too seems to think that people holding hands is inappropriate, although it
looks like he doesn't even know why.
It comes down to this, does it offend you to see two people kissing? And even if it does, can I get you to change your t-shirt if it "offends"
Too many people are too easily "offended" in America, over absolutely nothing, things that have ZERO bearing on their own existence. Too many seem
to think that the fact they are personally so uptight, with a tick shoved so far up their jacksie it's tickling their tonsils, they have a right to
tell people about it.
If it isn't attacking your rights and your freedoms, leave other people alone. It's really pretty simple.
