Until recently, the answer for me was always “Hell no!” Maybe a spanking for a kid, but nothing further.
Tonight I watched 'An American Crime". I found it to be profoundly disturbing, and that’s saying a lot for me, I can watch all sorts of gross stuff, but I have a line.
The fact that this was based on true events made it even more difficult to watch. People that torture children…get a special type of punishment IMO. Kids that torture, get the taste slapped out of their mouth, and some follow up.
“Dylan, did you put a cigarette out on that girl’s arm?” “Time out.”
Fuck that! If Dylan put out a damn cigarette on anyone’s anything he gets slapped to the ground, or reported to the cops.
I pride myself about never being physically abusive with women, but the mother in that story takes the cake. I would punch that woman as hard as I would a man, and then spit on her. Torturing an innocent girl? Die.
