I wouldn't even call myself pro-spanking, to be honest. I see why you might give a child a little slap on the wrist, but no more. That's all my parents ever did, anyhow. No anger involved anywhere there. Even spanking is too extreme for my tastes. What's pissing me off is people saying that there aren't different degrees of physical punishment (there are, and only the lightest degree should be permitted), and people saying that my parents should be sterilised.Mortai Gravesend said:If he's going to pretend all the pro-spanking people aren't ranting then I'm going to point out that some are.TheIronRuler said:.Mortai Gravesend said:Riiiiiiight, it's totally not some pro-spanking people blathering about how a lack of spanking is ruining the next generation.anthony87 said:And it's the people who were spanked who AREN'T ranting. It always seems to be the ones who don't know what they're talking about that have the most to say.Signa said:Thank you for the applause. It grinds my gears with all these accusations flying around. If you weren't spanked, then you have no place telling everyone that was spanked that they are victims or child abusers. Let the people who were spanked rant about how they were abused when they were naughty.anthony87 said:Signa said:The most disgusting thing about these threads is how judgmental the anti-spankers get. "you're a bad parent. You need therapy. You're hurting the innocent! Spanking is sexual!" Yet the pro-spankers say it's all cool if you want to spank or not, they are leaving it up to the parent to decide what is right for their own kids. No one is advocating abuse, no matter how much some of you may want to spin it to sound like that.
I wanted to say something like that but you've put it far better than I could.
And being bashed with pots and getting concussions doesn't count for this conversation. That's just fucked up.
I've seen two so far. You've got nothing to add here, really.
