oldollie - so are you claiming that all teachers are liberal? also since we are going this direction, what makes you believe that the people associated with the bombing didnt agree with some of the rights ideals? i bet they loved your lax gun laws. not to mention your hatred of airport security. Not all teachers are liberal, but THESE teachers definitely are.
What makes me CERTAIN that the bombers don't agree with the right on ANYTHING is their words and their actions. I have absolutely NOTHING in common with them or their twisted perverted world view. The were f***ing OBAMA supporters, for Christ`s sake!
And the guns they had were ILLEGAL in Mass. I`m sure they were comforted knowing that while they were shooting it out with the police, it was highly unlikely that an armed citizen would shoot them in the back (except, or course with a video camera).
And in case you haven`t noticed, NOBODY, likes airport security.

Nonetheless, even if kissing hadn't been coded as sexual advances, I would still not be comfortable with this activity. Because of the way the students were asked to participate (being told to comply), a student who is not comfortable for any reason (perhaps they are actually gay?) might find saying no to the activity just as awkward as submitting to the activity.

Ok. Fine. I have to add this. I understand that "kissing" is fine in itself. I can kiss other males and not be gay. However, a big part of the problem is the activity was using "kissing" as a stand-in for "sexual advances". When something that might be conventionally innocent gets coded as something more, the meaning of the activity changes.
