Banned: Holding Hands?

This story has to land in the no hand holding ban section of the weirdest kind, after an institution for higher learning in PRC has issued an outright ban on holding hands.

A university in northeastern China is underhandedly taking heat after they issued a rule banning students from holding hands or romantically feeding each other in the school cafeteria.

Personally, I can’t count how many people I’ve held hands with over the years. My mom, a gal I genuinely liked, and now my wife. I had always thought that holding hands was one of the more casual, yet most public simultaneously intimate physical acts. The way your fingers intertwine with another person’s is both innocent and very special.
