It's fine!!! I mean, if a couple is fully making out and literally on each other, then I can see how it's really disturbing. But if they're just holding hands and hugging, (hinging out) then it shouldn't be a problem. You can show public displays of affection but just keep it appropriate. If you can't do it in front of your parents then you shouldn't do it at all. But if you can, then I believe it's alright!
In a students point of view. Is public display of affection a good idea.
It depends how much I mean you can't make-out with a person in the hallway!haha! Hugs should be just fine if they have a problem with that they have a problem
It depends on the degree of affection and also how open your society is with regards to this issue. For example, most Asian countries are more conservative then their western counterparts and hence acts of intimacy in public areas like a school may not be accepted very well. In my opinion, affection in schools, regardless of one's usual culture and societal practices should not be encouraged as after all, a school is a place where students go to study. Wouldn't it be disturbing to be walking down hallways and see couples hugging and kissing one another? What message will it send to students and society in general? By this I mean that the society could be perceived to be "loose" as even students in schools are allowed to display acts of intimacy.
It really depends on what you are doing. A little hug or holding hands is fine because it's not "x-rated." Now, making out in a corner or even farther is just plain out wrong! You don't want to be in school, a place for studying, and always seeing a couple sucking each other's faces. But a hug or holding hands should be fine because it's not viewed as disgusting, unlike sucking face, by most. These two are just very small signs of affection and those who commit these two actions shouldn't be punished.
