Making Out In Public: Do You Care That It's Gross?Moe5/02/08 4:00pmFiled to: some say the world will end in fireDatingEtiquetteKissingMaking Outpublic displays of affectionRelationships173EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkA Memphis high school principal publicly outed a bunch of gay kids when she posted a list of couples teachers had told her were "known couples" in hopes of shaming them out of making out in the hallways. And yes, that is mindbogglingly outrageous — as opposed to merely "sad," which is how I characterized it before I realized many of the couples had no public makeout history — but the ACLU is on it and I feel there is a more important matter at hand, because it is Friday, and a bunch of you are invariably going to be engaging in Public Displays of Affection tonight. And I'm okay with that. This morning I revealed that I had once been kicked out of a bar for making out. I like making out in bars and on street corners sometimes, because making out at home on your couch gets old and inevitably leads to fucking, and you can't run errands or get drunk while you're fucking. But sometimes I forget how it makes others feel.
