    No, only straight couples should be allowed to spank
    Well you know it is that whole gay marriage thing,.. right along with gay driving, gay working, all that perverted gay stuff. So if a gay parent is spanking it must be gay spanking and since gays are sexual perverts that spanking couldn't be dicipline, it has to be some deviant sex thing,...

    Ok, for those that can't figure it out,..

    I am passionately against it. But why should you being gay make any difference in how you raise your kids? Is this a new taboo now?

    Any couple or single mom or dad should be able to disciple their child, it is there duty to do so. Gay has nothing to do with, except to ignorant people who think of it in some perverted sexual way.;

    Yes, they can spank just like straight couples.
    My sexual orientation had nothing to do with the fact that my daughters each were spanked at least once in their life. Both girls remember their spankings and never pulled the stunts that caused them to occur again. My being gay had nothing to do with it, perverts get your minds out of the gutter.

    If that's the way they want to discipline their kids, I'm not going to stop them.
    It's a parent's right, after all, to discipline their kids however they see fit, no matter the sexual orientation.

    Personally, I wouldn't spank my child. I see it as wrong. I don't like the idea of hitting kids. But some parents may be different. But overall, why would the sexual orientation of the parent matter? Discipline is Discipline! >.>

    I could say “Only straight couples should be allowed to spank”, because I think only “normal” couples should have children. But that’s not reality. Given the reality of it all, if you have kids, and they screw something up egregiously, then spanking can be warranted, “normal” or gay.
  • nonConf... Simi Dave 2013/04/21 00:05:08
    "normal"? who the hell is normal these last 2 decades? I never met even 1 normal in my life of 27 years.

    First, I don't approve of gay parenting. But that aside, if we are going to permit gay people to adopt, we need to give them the same tools of discipline straight parents have.

    They have the same rights and responsibilities as straight parents do. Sexual orientation has nothing to do with your parenting technique. Or at least it shouldn't.

    If they have corporal punishment in their home, sure why not. What kind of mickey mouse question is this anyways? Straight people are the only ones that can spank because of why exactly?

    I wouldn't allow a homosexual anywhere near a child, much less the child's rear end.

    Wow, you're comment is ignorant!

    Seriously? You cannot figure out what I meant by it. And you are calling me ignorant?

    Not for gay parents, or straight ones. Whether it's abusive or not, it's counter-productive.

    Spanking has a purpose, being gay does not. Nobody was ever hurt by a logical and reasonable spanking.
  • elijahin24 Patriot... 2012/06/23 22:09:10
    I think you're entirely wrong here. Spanking HAS been harmful, homosexuality has not.
  • nonConf... elijahin24 2013/04/21 00:10:02
    right on.

    In raising a child you have to be fair and always let them know you love them.
  • elijahin24 Claybern 2012/06/23 22:10:31
    But arent there more effective forms of discipline? Spanking is lazy, and counterproductive. I have my kids do push-ups and write essays about why they shouldn't have done what they did.
  • Claybern elijahin24 2012/06/23 23:55:54 (edited)
    I agree with you, however and there is always a however in life. Time out is always good, drop and give me 20 is always good, Writing about what you did wrong is good. But when all that dicipline does not work. Spanking is not lazy, it's the last resort.

    My father is gay (although he didn't come out until I was 16). My mother did most of the disiplining in the family, but my father spanked me once if I remember correctly... Because I was being a brat, not because he was being a pervert.

    Actually I don't believe in spanking, however, sometimes the quickest way to stop a behavior is a pop on the hand reaching for the hot stove. Parents are in charge of their children, not the GOVERNMENT... the fact that a parent is gay has NOTHING to do with raising a child.
  • ID51 2012/06/23 13:45:30

    I always used spanking as a very last resort so it was few and far between - when all else had failed and only with my hand. This is one time when I'd have to say that it's not the make up of the parent unit, but that the parent unit has the right to discipline children. Spanking, too, is NOT beating.

    Good thing you do not make any rules.

    I think for myself---not influenced by dumb ass political correctness, the liberal media or pop culture.
    The whole trendy Gay thing bores me to no end. Gays used to be an interesting group, currently they are a boring, agenda driven snore
  • mmmholl... CAPISCE 2012/07/03 15:48:43
    "Trendy gay" gay is a historical and natural fact.
  • CAPISCE mmmholl... 2012/07/10 01:53:14
    Trendy in the press and media------Homo is boring and played out
