Perhaps The Girl Scouts Have A Point

Just before the big family turkey sit down, the Girl Scouts offered up some advice on expecting children to hug the creepy relatives.

“Think of it this way, telling your child that she owes someone a hug either just because she hasn’t seen this person in a while or because they gave her a gift can set the stage for her questioning whether she “owes” another person any type of physical affection when they’ve bought her dinner or done something else seemingly nice for her later in life.”

The advice has received mixed reviews, but if you’ve watched video of Joe Biden around children you’d probably want to err on the side of caution.

  1. I’m not a big fan of hugging. I’m sick and tired of being expected to hug anyone and everyone, even people I don’t know.

    Kids should not have to hug relatives if they don’t want to.

  2. In the anti-masculine world these leftists are constructing I suspect by the time these Girl Scouts come of age guys won’t bother buying women dinner or doing nice things for them.

  3. I love hugs! I would have a pretty good handle on anyone being creepy with my kids. I get that some kids are shy toward older relatives they barely know and I wouldn’t insist they override that shyness just to please me, but old people don’t get enough hugs! I’m not going to let the Left scare me with their latest nonsense. Those Lefties are afraid of the elastic in their underwear.

  4. My grandmother used to grab onto my face like I had chubby cheeks, say some bullshit about how handsome I was, tilt her head like Nipper the RCA dog then lean in for a kiss right in my fucking eye!

  5. WHAT PISSES ME OFF IS….

    I don’t touch my own kids or nieces on the breast even though they are too young to have any. Only to smooth out a shirt or something.

    But here is JOE BIDEN, a complete stranger, trying to cop a feel, sniffing hair, getting close to their face, whispering sweet nothings in their ear. Who doesn’t want a 70-something weirdo getting all up in their face for no reason?

    BOUNDARIES!

  6. “How old are you honey? 13? Just remember (strokes cheek, smells hair, leans in for a kiss), no serious dating till age 30. (Whispers something inappropriate in victims ear).
    As PJW says, perfectly normal.

  7. Just because they already paid for the cookies, doesn’t mean you should deliver the promised cookies. As Our Future Chinese Overlords explain: There’s always time to renegotiate.
