The foo is on the other shoot now.
The natural response to the unavoidable infliction of pain is overwhelming savage violence. Nature cares fuck all about spanking theology.
The US is a spank happy culture. I know some people who think all social ills could be cured if all parents would spank.

My dog, my wife, and my apple tree. The more I beat them, the better they be.
Badass job hitting the targets from like 10 feet away, Daniel Boone!
My dad bought a copy of this book well after I had left the house.
I had a friend whose mother used to spak him with a wooden spoon; he's now unhappily married to a woman 30 years older than him, has gone through almost every fetish on the Internet, has been disowned by his family for unmitigated creepiness, and has spent the past four years working on two novels that I hope to proofread some day.
If anyone here had the dubious honor of attending PoeCon 1 you heard some stories about him. The spanking was definitely causally related.
I do not believe in it and find it pretty abhorrent when I see parents do it to their children in public, or threaten their children with it, or do it to their children in private. What makes a person think slapping or hitting another person on the backside is morally justified or somehow not psychologically damaging to a person who weighs significantly less than you do and has zero power to resist you.
If you're anything like me, you go through a hitting phase as a youngster due to seeing that spanking is how an adult deals with anger. And believe me, that's healthy. I don't act out violently anymore, but my first reaction to anger is still to be ready to beat the shit out of the offending party. That's not healthy at all.
I was spanked as a child, and as an adult I've been in relationships that involved real punishment. In neither case was pain actually a significant component of the punishment. Stripping someone of their dignity, control over their body, and your approval works really fucking well.
It's weird reading some of the quotes from his book. He gets how little six month olds understand about the world around them but he still says to cause them pain.

This is a dupe, but I can't find it. Anyway, whatever.
Lots of evil to be found. The "spanking" is one thing, but PULLING A BABY'S HAIR WHEN IT BITES YOU DURING BREASTFEEDING is just an extra level of evil.
