You really shouldn't care what people are doing outside their homes either. As long as they aren't hurting anyone or having sex in the middle of main street. who cares if a couple shares a kiss, a laugh, holding hands, or embrace each other with a hug. PDA does not equal harm, hurt, or any other form of pain. It does not degrade society, there is nothing wrong with it.

If it offends me, it's harming me.

religious people offend me...people who believe in God, the bible and Jesus and then preach in public offend me.

People who deamonize beer offend me.

There are alot of people who offend me and others, does this mean they are hurting anyone...no!

If it offends you then look away, or dont leave your house.

Just because you find offense to something does not make it harmful. Maybe to your ego, or self esteem but that is your fault and not theirs.

someone calls you a name or a bad word, it may offend you but if your being and ars and someone calls you an ars, it may offend you but does that mean their wrong? or that it is hurting you? NO

You seem to have some deep seeded emotional and bonding issues, you might want to get help with that.

If someone says they dont like the beer I brew, and they dont give a reason, that offends me...but it does not harm me.

are you getting my point. everything you feel towards this issue is your own fault and no one elses. You cant possibly think its normal?

If it harms me, it does--and I must do what I can to prevent harm. Preferably other people will gain some SELF control, and not do things that are offensive. If they will not, they should expect me to act to protect myself from harm.

I just dont see how it is harming you in any way other than maybe your ego and self esteem. In which case that is your fault and no one elses.

If you went to a judge and tried to press charges against someone for PDA because it hurt you...they would laugh in your face and probably lock you up.

That's not a protected right.

If it were we'd call it the Right of *******.

If I beat you up, it doesn't matter if the right is protected or not.

TKramar, do you have Asperger's? That's kind of what you sound like.
