People Freak Out Over Tom Brady Giving Father A Quick Kiss

It's not weird for a grown man to kiss his own father on the lips, is it? Some seem to think so, which is why a photo of Tom Brady giving his dad some affection at the game is circulating around social media. It's evoking a collective groan.

Kissing each other on the lips seems to be a norm in the Brady family.

The quarterback has been spotted lip-to-lip pecking his dad, his mother, his kids, and (of course) his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen. The couple is actually known from some serious 'get a room'-type PDAs.

Is it normal for a 39-year-old man to press his own lips against his sexy wife's lips one moment, only to turn and press them against his elderly father's lips the next moment?

Well, that all depends on who you ask.

Dr. Charlotte Reznick, UCLA child psychologist, once wrote a scathing article about the damage that kissing a child on the lips can cause. The doctor claims it's absolutely never okay because it can be sexually stimulating.

"Even if that never occurs to a child, it´s just too confusing! If mummy kisses daddy on the mouth and vice versa, what does that mean when I, a little girl or boy, kiss my parent on the mouth?" she wrote.

No sooner was that criticism published, several other experts came forward to smack Dr. Reznick down.

Psychologist Dr. Fiona Martin told the Daily Mail, "It's absurd really to think a parent kissing their child could be referred to as too sexual... It's normal and healthy to be affectionate to your children. It's communicating to your child that you love them."

Dr. Samantha Rodman, clinical psychologist, wrote a lengthy response to Reznick for the Huffington Post. "In different cultures, people even kiss friends on the lips," she pointed out. "Unless they all follow this with intercourse, the case could be made that there is a distinction between kissing sexually and kissing non-sexually. Oh wait OF COURSE THERE IS."

Maybe Brady would get less flack if he weren’t so friendly with President Donald Trump or selling Uggs with ‘The Dude.’ But this family lip-pecking habit has certainly pushed opinions of Brady over the edge.
