10 Things the pro-spanking crowd missed

  1. Sweden has banned all spanking, even by parents, since 1979 and is closing prisons due to a lack of people to put in them.
  2. Louisiana, which is one of 19 U.S. states that still allows the paddle in public schools (and 48 that allow it in private schools), would have the highest incarceration rate in the world if it were a separate country.
  3. If spanking works, why do people feel the need to keep doing it. Constantly?
  4. Germany and Netherlands are also experiencing drops in the prison population since banning in 2000 and 2007 respectively. Google it.
  5. If pro-spankers "turned out fine" as most of them claim, why do they feel the need to resort to calling anti-spanking folks names simply for stating disagreement with them on social media? You cannot state an anti-spanking view on social media without being called an idiot by someone at some point.
  6. Adolf Hitler was thrashed daily by his father. This is verifiable at auschwitz.dk/paula.htm! If you can honestly tell me he turned out okay, please visit this site
  7. Ohio had a 52% drop in violent crimes from 2009, when it banned corporal punishment from public schools in 2009.
  8. My mom didn't believe in spanking when I was a kid, and I'm not a criminal. If pro-spankers can use their personal experience to support spanking, I can use mine to oppose it. Two-way street.
  9. Most of the co-workers I've ever had who were spanked as kids are rude and obnoxious when they don't get their way.
  10. If a male cop offered your wife, mother, or daughter a spanking to get out of a speeding ticket, what would be your response?
