Drama Bugbear: Forehead Kiss

I’ve always been annoyed with the forehead kiss – is the female lead a midget (no offence to the under-tall) whose lips the hero cannot reach? It feels uncomfortably patronising and parental – as if the recipient is a baby in need of protection vis a vis the fairy godmother or godfather. Also, as someone who’s suffered acne way into her 30s, I can’t imagine anyone kissing a zitty forehead – the eponymous T-zone of oil production. Or risking a huge breakout from oily lips. Yikes!
