35 - Yep. At my high school a quick shoulder hug between friends was PDA. The high school I worked at last year, we were just happy if the kids weren't having sex in the halls.

Ya exactly OP it might not be as bad as you think she might've just gave someone a friendly hug and someone must've narced on the PDA police or something lol :p

48-My middle school doesn't care. The principle and assistant principle see it every day but don't do anything. Kissing and making out is pda at middle schools

I graduated in 94. Zero tolerance already reared its ugly head then. Hand holding, hugs and other ridiculous things were PDAs that brought detention and suspension with them. Zero tolerance means zero common sense. And I guess their policy worked well since there were only about a dozen girls knocked up in my graduating class of 100. Op, get the story first, then make your decision based on it. It's be a shame if it were something innocent and it blew up more then it already has.

Exactly, 68. Holding hands was PDA back in my high school. It doesn't necessarily mean she was making out with guy or anything. I know just to fuck with the teachers my buddy and I would skip down the hall holding hands. Some of them got a kick out of it while others just glared at us haha.

depends on the school's version of PDA. How strict is the school with the rules? is she completely straight and got caught hugging or holding hands with a female friend? I need more details before saying it is time to move on and say theyre a cheater.

what exactly is public display of affection? a kiss on the cheek or making out or holding hands? because i can understand that teachers don't want students to make out, but holding hands can't be that big of a deal, can it?

It's usually passionate kissing/making out. At my school they don't care if they kiss the other before class and at buses, but if they get crazy they'll get into trouble.

I teach and my old school's reasoning behind listing hand holding and hugging as PDA is that sometimes the receiver is uncomfortable with this but lacks the courage to say "no". If you make it a blanket rule for everyone, it protects those that can't protect themselves.

Yeah it happens, but little children don't care that they're spreading bugs around. In high school I assume that if one had head lice one would stay home and clear the problem up on their own without me having to call their parents.

PDA rules are pathetic and actually really odd. I definitely wont be sending my future kids to a school that is stupid and conservative and lifeless enough to have such a intruding policy.

At my school they just wrapped us all in butcher's plastic. This one time, one girl's plastic touched another girl's plastic. They had to call in the decontamination squad, and run round the clock psychological assessments, lest all that plastic to plastic contact start encouraging the other students. It was bedlam. But - oh, sorry. That word is forbidden, because it has the word "bed" in it.

"Today, my boyfriend from a different school dumped me because he heard I got detention for public displays of affection. I just hugged my female friend in the hallway between classes. FML"

@8 Wow I feel sorry for you, thats a sad reflection on humanity isnt it. Back when I had the girlfriend in highschool we purposely showed alot of 'affection' in front of teachers faces purely out of spite for the stupid intolerant crap rule.
