On the NFL and Child Abuse
Regarding the recent outing of several "spankers" in the NFL, and the resulting controversy, the only thing I have to say about it is this.
It is NEVER okay to hit a child. Whether with your hand, a belt, or a "switch". Whether you yourself were spanked as a child and "turned out all right".
If you hit another adult, it's assault. Why then is it suddenly okay for you to hit a small child?
If you are using violence against a child, you have failed as a parent and a human being.
There is NO excuse.
And if you're defending this bullcrap, you also have failed as a human being.
