MY ignorance?!<quoted text>Or.....you can just keep up YOUR ignorant argument- from my post #619890:
"Spanking is a euphemism for hitting.
One is not permitted to hit one's spouse or a stranger; these actions are considered domestic violence and/or assault.
Nor should one be permitted to hit a smaller and even more vulnerable child. Hitting a child elicits precisely the feelings one does not want to generate in a child: distress, anger, fear, shame, and disgust.
Studies show that children who are hit will "identify with the aggressor," and they are more likely to become hitters themselves, i.e., bullies and future abusers of their children and spouses. They tend to learn to use violent behavior as a way to deal with disputes."
And you WILL keep up your ignorant argument; you EMBRACE ignorance, you INDULGE in your ignorance and you WALLOW in your ignorance.
You don't realize that you just shut down your entire argument of "hitting is the same as spanking"....
"Spanking is a euphemism for hitting" is absolutely correct.
Euphemism: A mild or indirect word or expression for one too harsh or blunt.
HA HA HA !!!
The word 'hitting' is too harsh of a word to be used to compare to 'spanking'.
