She Won't Hold My Hand :(

I went to go see a movie with my girlfriend, we had fun, it was a great movie. Afterwards, we were walking down the street and i tried to hold her hand but she pulled away. She said she didn't want to hold my hand in public because she didn't want to get any comments. I've been with her almost a year and a half, she used to hold my hand. Now she is afraid.
What the hell is wrong with this world. I can't even hold the hand of the woman i love without her being afraid.
Even in her own home she jumps away from me when anyone comes in the room because her family will not accept it. I am tired of this. We are adults. I want to hold her hand and cuddle during a movie. I want to be able to kiss her goodbye at a bus stop.
I can't help but cry, this hurts. But i can't blame her. she is hurting too.
I don't know what to do :(

OMG This is my biggest issue with my GF! It hurts so bad that since the world won't except us we have to go through that. In my situation I am also scared of showing affection in public but at the same time it would be nice to do it with out worrying. My GF has a harder time with it than I do and she says it's because she can't excepted that we are together, and that is after 7 years. Ahhh! I feel your pain
