THE KISS FEMININE. [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 12 August 1910
' THE KISS FKMININIS. The kiss ought to be abolished — thai, is, of course, the woman's kiss. The masculine kiss is entirely exempt from these renin.'.ks. Women kiss each other so much— and for so littlo — that it lias quite come to lose its significance. They kiss when they meet, and when they part; they kiss each other ^vhi-: they love each other, and they kiss each other wlieu they Jiato each other. ' It is positively absurd lo see women slobbering each other iu the street. Many of tlieni say they bate it, but the lit'ideet to bestow the kiss might' be taken to assume that ill-feeling exists. Which is neither logical i: v reasonable; but woman never win; very logical. Convention's chains bind her too tightly. This salutation is now such a delusion that it is time it was abolished.
