Is it rude to blow your nose loudly in public?

Everyone has to do it. Whether you're fighting off allergies or have a wicked cold, most people don't think twice about blowing their nose. That is, until they're listening to someone else do it. It's one thing for you to blow your own nose—the sound is innocuous—but if someone else spews the entire contents of their nasal cavity into a flimsy tissue, most can't help but bristle. Still, others say it's no big deal if someone loudly blows their nose in public. Pollen allergies are an equalizer, after all. What do you think?

Everyone has to blow their nose, and no one should dictate when or where such an activity should take place. If you're in the position where you have to blow your nose in the first place, odds are you already don't feel good, and the last thing you need is for people around you to judge you for your own sickness. 

You know what's worse than loudly blowing your nose in public? Letting your runny nose wreak havoc all over your face while in close proximity to other people. Everyone can agree that blowing your nose—loudly, quietly, obnoxiously, whatever it may be—is the lesser of two evils.

But let's be real, absolutely no one wants to listen to someone who is ill—someone who should not be in public anyway—empty their bodily fluids into a measly tissue, which often can barely hold the weight of the mucus itself. 

Blowing your nose loudly in public is rude because it's within a person's power to change the situation. Sneezing in public, by contrast, is completely acceptable, as no one can predict or hold in a sneeze. But if you're stuffed up, can't breathe and put yourself in the proximity of others, the least you can do is drain your nasal passages inside of a bathroom stall.
