Missouri school district votes to allow sexual abuse as a punishment

So a school district in Missouri decided that spanking was an acceptable form of punishment

Spanking has essentially the same psychological and physiological effects as other forms of sexual abuse

I’m against the use of corporal punishment in any sense.

The fact that public schools are, to this day, still allowed to strike a child as a form of disciplinary action is a testament to a gross and repugnant failure on the public to disentangle their desire to instill what they perceive as “values” from actions that only hold such significance because they are traditional, in nature, even when such actions fail to meaningfully promote such values.

it´s also a sign of the double moral of society …

“sex Ed? No that hurts children” “Hurting children? Ah that only makes them tougher” … and the worst that often comes from the same people -_-

“Sex ed traumatizes children, hit them with a belt instead!”
