Wil – Does me getting spanked explain my fucked up nature as an adult? Possibly!
Deinse – Speak for yourself, Pervert!!!
Here is an article talking about spanking, but it is against it. I’ll quote the relivant lines and add our comments. First, the URL for the article.
Researchers have uncovered another damaging consequence of spanking: risky sexual behaviors, or even sexual deviancy, when the child grows up.
Wil – What? that’s damaging to me? So what if I like a little smacking every now and then!
Denise – Sheeittt!!! I think there is an underlying gene of perversion in the DNA make up that has absolutely nothing to do with spanking.
“This adds one more harmful side effect to spanking,” said Murray Straus, a spanking expert who was expected to present the findings of four studies at the American Psychological Association’s Summit on Violence and Abuse in Relationships in Bethesda, Md., on Thursday.
Wil – I don’t think spanking is harmful at all. today parents are taught to reason with their kids. You cannot reason with a two year old! Ain’t gonna happen! Let me guess, sending a kid to time out will make them more anti-social?
Denise – We have way too many parents today who are ultra permissive.
“My hope is to convince my colleagues that they ought to put this in their textbooks,” said Straus, co-director of the Family Research Laboratory at the University of New Hampshire, in Durham. “It’s amazing. Something experienced by all American kids gets an average of half a page in child development textbooks, and not a single one comes to the conclusion that parents should never spank.”
Wil – That is correct. it is a necessary form of punishment that should still be used in schools. people bitch about religion being taken out of the school, but doesn’t say anything about spanking, or even punishing, is taken out of the school. I think today’s kids are a lot meaner and disruptive than my generation. I’m 35 years old, and I come from an age where records were things you listened to for entertainment, toys had lead in them, and where you went outside to play.
Denise – If today’s parents used the right balance of discipline including spanking when necessary, Child Protection intake workers would receive fewer calls about delinquent and unruly children who are out of control because mommy and daddy let them get away with a little ‘no no’ or ‘we don’t do that’; and now teenage bad child wants to slit mommy and daddy’s throat.
A meta-analysis of spanking studies conducted by Gershoff found 93 percent agreement among studies that spanking can lead to such problems as delinquent and anti-social behavior in childhood along with aggression, criminal and anti-social behavior and spousal or child abuse as an adult.
Wil – That explains my personality fully, doesn’t it?
Denise – No Wil, that has nothing to do with your terminal perversion. I think there is some confusion of spanking versus beating. My siblings and I were not spanked as children, we were beaten. There is no contest in the above mentioned problems in adulthood when linked to histories of child abuse/beating – not spanking.
Five percent of people who have never been spanked hit their partners, versus 25 percent of those who were spanked frequently.
Wil – Ask Denise, have I ever hit her? I think not! Same goes for her!
Denise – That’s right!! If it were you’d be wishing Jack Bauer had kicked your ass instead of me. I would love to see the parameters that defined spanking in a scientific manner for this study.
They found that spanking and other corporal punishment is associated with an increased probability of verbally and physically coercing a dating partner to have sex; risky sex such as premarital sex without using a condom; and masochistic sex such as spanking during sex.
Wil – You mean peer pressure has nothing to do with that anymore? When I was thirteen, I was pressured into smoking. Because I was spanked had nothing to do with my decision to start smoking.
Denise – Wow!! What a crock of shit!!! I think they are forgetting about the influence of the media on our culture as well.
Of course, there’s a similar dose response for smokers. But if someone reaches the age of 65 without developing lung cancer, it doesn’t mean that smoking isn’t harmful. It means the person was one of the lucky ones.
It’s the same with spanking, Straus said. “If a person says, ‘I was spanked, and I don’t have any interest in bondage and discipline sex, that’s correct, but it’s not because spanking is OK, it’s because they’re one of the lucky ones.”
And spanking a child once may be like picking up that first cigarette. “The trouble is, if you have a 2-year-old, you pretty soon decide you can’t avoid it. The recidivism rate for whatever ‘crime’ you correct a 2-year-old for is about 50 percent in two hours.”
Wil – Hmm, let’s see. if I spank a child, that’s like smoking. I can’t help myself, so I do it for little things liike backtalking. Bullshit! That’s a load of crap if I ever heard it!
Denise – I bet a government grant funded this bull shit!!! Gee – I must be one of the lucky ones because I had more than my share of spankings (beatings) and I’m not into any kind of spanking anything as an adult. Ask Wil, if he smacks me the wrong way, it sure as hell doesn’t turn me on. Does it Wil?
Wil – Let’s see what you all think. Read the article in full and judge for yourself without my comments.
Denise – Spankign Schmanking!!! A pervert is a pervert is a pervert.
