Chinese University Bans Student Couples From Holding Hands

Recommended Posts

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/chinese-university-in-changsha-bans-students-from-holding-hands-in-canteen-a6726346.html

A university in China has intervened to prevent “uncivilised” behaviour among students by banning them from holding hands, putting their arms around each others’ shoulders or spooning rice into their partners’ mouths.

According to one teacher, the clampdown is intended to help students “cultivate themselves to become civilised people”. But the new code of conduct, released by Jilin Construction University in the city of Changsha, has been mocked by students and many of China’s social media users.

The rules pay particular attention to behaviour in the university canteen, where cameras have been installed. Students are banned from feeding each other or any such “intimate behaviour”. According to China’s New Culture View newspaper: “An assistant teacher will have private conversations with those who are in love, telling them not to have physical contact or engage in improper behaviour on campus.”

A unnamed teacher at the university told the newspaper: “Improper behaviour, like kissing and hugging in public places such as the subway, have been [widely] revealed by the media. If such behaviours are seen in the canteen, we don’t think it’s proper.”

Welcome to the thought police.

Good. There is nothing more annoying than sitting on the tube and seeing a couple opposite intertwining themselves. Do it at home.

And put in on You-Tube! :blink:

Sounds more like bitter old communists pi$$ed at the younger generation having freedoms they never had. Boomers are the same the world over.

I don't really see the big deal.

You wouldn't really expect to do it in the work place, why at school?

If nothing else it teaches them discretion and a sense of occasion.

Can't just keep working them too hard though ...
