I read John Driessnack’s recent column “Open sexual expression should be extended to all” (CT, March 24), and found that it was pretty accurate. Society nowadays is thriving with PDA all over the place, and this campus is no different. I agree on the fact that most, if not all, the PDA that I have seen around campus is between heterosexual couples.
For some reason being heterosexual is common and accepted in our society, and being homosexual is completely out of the question.
However, I feel like society is changing because of our generation. Homosexuality is becoming more widely accepted, compared to a decade ago, but you still don’t see much PDA at all. The majority of heterosexuals are hypocritical like the author said in the column, but I honestly don’t think you can rate all heterosexuals the same. Personally speaking, I hate showing PDA with my boyfriend in public, just because it is a personal “bedroom” issue and I don’t want to be a hypocrite. This is the same reason why I hate when people put kissing pictures up on Facebook. I feel like that kind of stuff needs to be kept between you and your partner. I know a lot of people that share the same feelings about the PDA issue as I do, so in reality you can’t judge every heterosexual equally.
They aren’t all hypocrites.
