The perverted side of spanking

I have wondered why spanking upsets some people so much. Now I have an explanation.

Jillian Keenan writes in Slate:
I have a spanking fetish. In my case, that means I like to be spanked, usually with a hand, belt, hairbrush, wooden spoon, switch, or paddle. It sexually gratifies me. I’ve had submissive fantasies for as long as I can remember, and it’s part of my identity. I consider my kink to be my sexual orientation. ...

So I have a question: If it’s “somewhat pedophilic” when my adult husband consensually spanks me in a simulated “punishment,” what should we call it when parents do the same physical thing to actual children in an actual punishment?

I realize that many well-meaning parents will disagree with me, but spanking kids is gross. ...

A fresco at the Etruscan Tomb of the Whipping, which dates back to approximately 490 B.C., depicts an erotic spanking. ...

It disturbs me that when I Google the word spanking, I find far more websites about sex than I do about parenting, yet most people still think the act is appropriate to inflict on children.
Okay. Live and learn. I guess if I had a kink erotic obsession with spanking, then I'd be against spanking kids also. Weird.

I wonder what she thinks about breast-feeding infants.

I knew that millions of women read Fifty Shades of Grey, but I didn't know that they associate sexual fantasies with child discipline. We live in a nation of perverts.

I wonder if our VP Joe Biden knows that some women like to be hit. He recently said:
It's never, never, never the woman's fault. No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. No means no ... The one regret I have is we call it domestic violence as if it's a domesticated cat. It is the most vicious form of violence there is, because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. This whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. What were you wearing? What did you say? What did you do to provoke? That is never the appropriate question.
He has aligned himself with the anti-equality feminists. Some feminists used to advocate equality, but it appears that most of them today do not want women held responsible for their behavior in the same way as men.

Even the CDC admits that domestic violence is the woman's fault about half the time. How does he explain the lesbian-on-lesbian or Hope Solo domestic violence? Worse violence includes murder, stranger muggings, and serious injuries. Yes, I know Biden is always saying stupid things.

Except for when it is... Or she wants to be beaten, or choked, or treated like the dirty little whore she is...

When I was 21 I had a girlfriend tell me when she was five her father spanked her, she found it erotic, he could see it, and never touched her again.
