Piers Morgan has called David Beckham “weird” and “creepy” for kissing his seven-year-old daughter， Harper， on the lips – and he‘s not the only one to think so。 Social media is full commenters trying to make a parent feel guilty for the simple act of showing their child affection。
Should I know what it is? Or just something you think I did it? No, no,
I did it, I did it.
You can’t act like everything’s ganna work out by itself.
Because you can’t sing without making dogs bark.
I know what I want because I’ve had it in my hands right now.
We are not a mistake just because we don’t have any money.
We gonna have it last. You know how I know? Because I still wake up every morning and the first thing I want to do is seeing your face.
I just want to be there when the morning light explodes. On your face, it radiates I can’t escape.
I think I repel the woman I want most
I still know you are around. You are still here, aren’t you?
Married people make each other feel like shit on purpose sometimes. It just feels good.
We have absolutely no idea what we want.
Gerry thought it was the best way to honor the dead, show them how well we’re doing.
We don’t know what a privilege it is to grow old with someone.
I feel like I’m trying on a new pair of shoes I really wanna buy, but they just don’t fit.
There’s no man, alive or dead, who’s gonna fault you for living.
Would you mind if we should walk together since we are going in the same direction. I’ll stay on this side of the road. Don’t even have to talk. Just quite nice, sometimes walking along with someone without talking once you get your feet wet.
At first, the no-talking thing didn’t last. Before long, I couldn’t get you to shut up. But you were so cute, trying to impress me with William blake and all your grand plans. I had no idea what you were talking about, but I couldn’t help loving the way you talked.
I loved you right then and there.
A fella has to tell a woman the truth without words. It’s like a signal you send out. The woman, she just pick it up.
www.0805.com ，I could turn it on and off when I was younger and I had no principles. When every girl that I was lucky enough to kiss was the end of life as I knew it. Now I only send it out when I think she might be the one that makes it true.
--Do you think we could turn around and face each other without freaking him out?
--ah…Okay, sure, but let’s move very slowly, okay?
I’m keeping it unless we meet again, that’s a bet you’re gonna have to win because if we do meet again then that’ll be the end of it, you know.
If I happen to walk into the right one in the right town then we’ll know for sure, won’t we? And if I don’t then that’ll just be the most perfect kiss ever created by two strangers and we’ll just keep it perfect for the rest of our lives.
Life had changed as I knew it, and now it changed again.
I really like you, but I can’t be the invisible man. I’m tired of being the shoulder. I wanna be another body part you need, you know? I wanna be the bad guy. I wanna a woman to go crazy over me and then I wanna use her up until she’s ruined for all other men I’d like to be somebody’s gerry.
I bet you’ve had a hard time walking into a room full of people on your own. I know what it is feel like you are in the room until he looks at you or touches your hand or even makes a joke at your expense, just to let everyone know you are with him, you are his.
God, that man could make me laugh.
You know the worst thing for a parent, second after losing a child? Watching your child head for the same life you had and you can’t stop it. It’s a terrible helpless feeling. Makes you angry all the time and I’ve been angry a very long time. I’m exhausted.
You make me a man by loving me.
P.S. I love you.
Having my six-year-old son George kiss me on the lips is one of the uncomplicated joys of life， and I plan to carry on doing it several times a day for as long as he wants to。 Obviously the moment George decides he doesn‘t want to smooch his mum on the lips then I will， reluctantly， stop。 Because to me， George feeling comfortable expressing his feelings in this way is a sign of a healthy， loved little boy。
And it‘s not just because I am a woman – we should be equally relaxed about dads showing physical affection towards their children too。 Again， with the disclaimer that it is something the child wants to do。
而且这不仅仅是因为我是一个女人 - 我们应该同样对爸爸们向孩子表达感情保持宽容的态度。同样，这得建立在孩子自愿的基础上。
For decades we have wanted dads to loosen up and feel comfortable expressing their feelings。 There‘s clear evidence that our failure to accept male emotion leads to a culture of toxic masculinity which can in the most extreme circumstances cause an increase in mental health issues and even suicide。
It can only be beneficial for men to be open and expressive about their feelings in this way。 And when they do， and figures like Piers try to make it into something to feel ashamed of， we should remember that kissing is just a sign of a completely normal bond between father and child， something to be cherished and celebrated。
The age of the child seems to matter to most people who are shocked by this – they think that at seven years old， Harper Beckham is too old to engage in this behaviour。 One arbitrary line seems to be that when a child starts school such contact should be stopped。 No one seems to suggest that there‘s anything wrong with kissing a baby or toddler on the lips – so exactly at what age should we start viewing parental contact as potentially sexualised？
对于大多数对此感到震惊的人来说，孩子的年龄似乎很重要 - 他们认为，7岁时的哈珀贝克汉姆已经长大到不能接受这种亲密了。停止亲密肢体接触的界限似乎化在当孩子开始上学时。似乎没有人认为亲吻婴儿或幼儿有什么不妥
I truly hope these ignorant and unfounded comments towards Beckham’s affection for his daughter does not make any parents – particularly dads – back off when their kids approach for a kiss for fear of judgement。 A child growing up thinking it‘s wrong to kiss a parent would be the real tragedy。
我真的希望这些攻击贝克汉姆向女儿表达爱意的行为的评论不会让任何父母 - 特别是父亲 -因为害怕他人的目光让拒绝希望能获得父母亲吻的孩子。如果孩子从小认为亲吻父母是不对的话这将令人惋惜。
