My boyfriend and I have been dating for about a month now and up until now no one has had a problem with us holding hands and even kissing each other good bye because every couple does that and the school tolerates it.

Recently someone reported us and only us not any other couple who does the same thing and now we have to watch our steps while other people can do whatever they want.

And, for a little added info, we go to an Early College so we share the space with college students who do just as much as we do also.

I'm sorry to hear that. Do you have a teacher that is cool, or someone that would actually understand that works at the school that you could talk to?

Is there a GLBT club at your school or in your community that you and your boyfriend can hang out at and feel safe to be as PDA as you want?

If you give me your town, I might be able to find information for you. Private Message me though.

At least you can come here and not feel as alone I hope.

Well normally the school is very tolerant. Most of the high school community anyways. It would not have bothered me if one of the teacher hadn't preached to all of the freshmen class that gay pda shouldn't happen on school ground.

The teachers at my school are also tolerant (accept for the college liaison who preached to her class.)And recently our GSA was passed by the county and is in the process of being started.

The person who reported us was one of the college students and it really bothers me because they are supposed to be adults and they aren't mature enough handle a same-sex couple holding hands.

I'm a little confused, is holding hands against the rules of your school, but it's never enforced for straight couples? Or are they saying that same-sex couples can't hold hands but different-sex couples can? (because I imagine that would be illegal) Or is holding hands not against the rules, but they're trying to stop you doing it anyway?
