Over in wtf_inc, someone posts a website that celebrates wife "spanking" as a means of discipline and to establish the husband's "authority" over his wife. Using his brilliant reasoning skills, hollowpointslug quickly determines that this is no different than homosexuality and should be just as respected as gay people are. Ok...
Here are some story excerpts from the wife-beating-promoting website:
Lucas spanked her across the basement floor and made her walk up the stairs first where he spanked her bottom every step of the way. He spanked her through the house and up the stairs again to their bedroom. By the time they got there Alyssa was howling in distress, her bottom feeling set afire. He pushed her inside and finally stopped his relentless spanking.
And this charming disclaimer:
Though we believe the Bible gives a husband the authority to use spanking as one tool in enforcing his authority in the home with or without his wife's permission, in today's world we recognize the legality that mandates that all CDD must be consensual. Therefore we will do not condone nonconsensual CDD as a rule.
Oh yes, totally the same as gay sex.
