Study after study after study shows that spanking children causes anger, aggression, decreased impulse control, anxiety, lower thresholds for frustration etc etc

You didn’t “turn out just fine” because you were smacked, you turned out “just fine” IN SPITE of it.

I also wouldn’t call someone who thinks violence against children is okay “just fine” but.. Y’know.

the first female chinese immigrant to america was a sixteen-year-old girl who was part of a cultural exhibit where she sat in a life-size diorama and people watched her eat with chopsticks while wearing silk clothes and that’s really all you need to know…

Dr. Menachim Amir, an Israeli criminologist, did an intensive survey of 646 rape cases handled by the Philadelphia Police Department from January to December 1958 and from January to December 1960. In his study, Patterns of Forcible Rape, he criticizes psychoanalytic interpretations of rapists’ behavior by pointing out that studies “indicate that sex offenders do not constitute a unique clinical or psychopathological type; nor are they as a group invariably more disturbed than the control groups to which they are compared.”

Or, as Allan Taylor, a parole officer in California, said: “Those men [convicted rapists] were the most normal men [in prison]. They had a lot of hang-ups, but they were the same hang-ups as men walking out on the street.”

In Amir’s study, most rapists were between fifteen and nineteen years old. Men twenty to twenty-four constituted the second largest group. In 63. 8 percent of the cases, the offender and the victim were in the same age group ( ± 5 years); in 18. 6 percent, the victim was at least ten years younger than the offender; in 17. 6 percent, the victim was at least ten years older.

Our Blood, by Andrea Dworkin

"Rape is vastly underreported across the board, but African-American women are significantly less likely to report than white women are. In fact, a Department of Justice study found that while one out of six white women report sexual assault, just one out of 16 black women do. For many of Holtzclaw’s alleged victims, the added complexities of class and previous arrests made the choice of of keeping quiet less threatening than being stalked and sexually battered. (Holtzclaw reportedly assaulted some of his victims multiple times.) Lots of people will dwell on this — it’s a wink-nudge way of talking around race — while ignoring the fact that there are black women in every sphere, in every class, in every town, who wrestle with the reality that our bodies and lives are simply valued less. It is an incredibly sad fact, with long historical roots. A heartbreaking truth that, sadly and surely, Daniel Holtzclaw knew all too well."

Penises are for urinating and supplying sperm for reproduction, doesn't mean we urinate and fuck in public .. why should breast feeding be okay? fucking typical one sided feminist

Does your penis provide sustenance for another person? No. Can you show your nipples in public if you want to? Yes. Also, breasts are not genitals or sex organs. Only 13 out of 190 cultures world wide consider them to be sexual or even private parts. Don’t even act like this is a feminist thing. This is a babies-have-the-right-to-eat thing.

I’ve seen more men urinating in public than I have women breast feeding, like are you fucking kidding me??!? Men take every excuse to expose themselves in public to make women uncomfortable.
