Should public intimacy be banned at college?(ECNS) A private university in the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao has made national headlines for banning public intimacy between student lovers as part of its controversial code of conduct.
Qingdao Binhai University, founded as a private vocational college in 1992, has named and shamed students said to break school rules, detailing their private information as well as unapproved behavior such as holding hands and hugging in public.
A student told Beijing Times that males can't publically help carry bags for females and lovers can't share one tray at the canteen or an earphone.
Another student, who wanted to remain anonymous, said he received a "serious warning" from the university after a teacher caught him holding hands with his girlfriend. The student was required to clean a "dirty, outdated" toilet as punishment. Is the ban reasonable? What do you think?
