After spanking of teen girls, Texas school board gives official OK
LA Times ^ | September 25, 2012 | Michael Muskal

They’re calling it the swat heard ‘round the world -- and its echo is still reverberating.

On Monday night, the school board in Springtown, Texas, voted to allow students to be paddled by employees of the opposite gender if their parents give written permission. The board's previous policy permitted only same-gender paddling.

No one really argued with the idea of corporal punishment; at issue was the question of who gets to administer it, specifically can an adult male swat young girls?

What's that? The former policy sets limits on what a government employee can do?

It must be changed!

“The board’s previous policy permitted only same-gender paddling.”

What if a gay man is paddling a boy? A Lesbian paddling a girl? Are there provisions for that? Probably not. Why?

Homosexuals are only about 2% of the population.

The solution is to not approve of government employees spanking children.

Unless, of course, you believe government employees should be trusted with children.

Yet, if a non-government employee had spanked the same teenage girl and left marks on her rear, CPS would be on that individual like white on rice.

It pays to be a government employee, doesn’t it?

Other government employees will enable your behavior, and you certainly won’t be charged or arrested the same way a non-government employee wouldn’t!

I’m not sure what this has to do with my observation that the rule is further flawed by omitting the obvious, grievous, error and putting children at even further risk of being a sex toy. Your point is what?

Not in this part of the world. Spanking is legal in Texas.

My only surprise is that they aren’t considering charging for the privilege of administering the punishment

Fine, let's get to the core of that.

Who SHOULD be spanking children?

Scientologists?
Restaurant Managers?
Coach Sandusky?
Nuns?
Postal Workers?

Where do you draw the line?

For my own family’s viewing, I choose classic television that is suitable for children. Interestingly, in three different TV series, and one movie, a male lead was motivated to spank a grown woman who had been making trouble throughout.

Programs:
I Love Lucy (Ricky Ricardo spanks his TV/real wife, Lucy Ricardo)
Cisco Kid (Cisco spanks a lying, though attractive young woman [played by Noel Niell?])
Bat Masterson (spanked the lying, corrupt, sister of the mayor of Denver ... with the mayor’s blessing)

Movie:
McClintock! (John Wayne wouldn’t hit a woman in the regular manner. Spanking will have to do.)

In my day, a strap was applied across the palms of the hands. There were no sexual overtones (of course, that dinosaur leather stung a lot).

In Texas this is tradition, we were doing it before all this PC stuff.

Swats were literally an ever day event in my school days, even the teacher could take you out into the hall and use a paddle, if he was the type that did that.

Whether it was in sports, the administration, or the classroom, or shop, swats were an accepted form of punishment for someone that just couldn’t be reached with other methods, normally this meant boys.

I held the record for swats from Junior High through high school, and it never occurred to me that they could be outlawed, but it was better than being evicted, or sent home.

After my dad retired he drove a school bus for a while. At one time he was world’s heavyweight wrestling champion so was not to be taken lightly. Told all the kids he had a spanking machine in the basement of the school. They apparently all believed him because they never misbehaved. Little girls all hugged his neck when they got off the bus and the little boys shook his hand.

When I was in grade school and you misbehaved you got to sit in the corner on a stool with a dunce cap on your head. Very effective particularly because you got a spanking from your parents when you got home.

For TV spankings, don’t forget Martin Mull’s “Fernwood 2-Nite” (on youtube) where a school principal demonstrates the proper way to spank a sixteen year old girl, complete with volunteer teenager.

;^)

Fernwood-2-night? That must have been one of them-there raunchy new-fangled late night syndicated shows like "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" and "Lorenzo and Henrietta Music".

We like older, classic programming.

VP should be fired..I don't have any teenage daughter but if a grown man did this to my 15 yr old the only trial would be mine. This is sick that this would be allowed.

Bet $100 he went home and jacked off reliving it.

Supt. Michael Kelley asked the board to change the policy to allow males to paddle female students because not all of the schools have enough females to perform the task.

It's just that the female school teachers aren't awake at 5 a.m. when the line starts forming...they're still giving the boys in the "gifted program" their final examination.

Can't find a female teacher? First time it's come to my attention that public education is such an estrogen free zone... imagine the male teachers, so overworked, having to fill so many multiple positions...between passing out towels in the girl's shower and testing pubescent posteriors for seismic jiggle, who has time to grade papers?

BTW...is there any evidence Principal Spanky reddened the rears of any unattractive little girls?? Do only pretty girls make his paddle rise to the occaison?

Just Wondering! ;^)

There are no female secretaries, teachers, physical education teachers in a female dominated industry that are capable of wielding a paddle??? Surely thou jest!!!

Or is the privilege of spanking 16 year old girls part of the male administrators' contracts and they don't want to give it up???

Raises hand

So, how would you be able to get a female to keep an eye on you if they aren't available?


Better just to tell the parent to come up and spank them

Follow the bouncing ball.

Homosexuals are only about 2% of the population. Logically, if they are present at a public school (and not all public schools will have a homosexual on staff), they will in all probability be a gross minority.

However, acknowledging that it is inappropriate for any adult to derive sexual pleasure from spanking a minor, the best course is to never give a government employee authority to spank your children.

This is also not a 100% deterent, because nothing prevents a relative or acquaintance of a child from also spanking the child to derive sexual pleasure.

However, it will greatly reduce the risk.

Limiting spankings in that Texas district to be administered by an adult to a child of the same gender was set in place to reduce the risk.

The recent decision has increased the risk.

This decision is not a victory for conservative parents.

This is a victory for government employees.

“Better just to tell the parent to come up and spank them “

This is the best solution. Have the parent come to the school to spank Junior.

“Follow the bouncing ball.”

I deal with what is, not what should be. The risk for harm is greater now, and greater STILL (by at least 2%) the way things ARE, on my planet. On your planet, increasing the risk by ONLY 2% is no increase about which to be alarmed, because it really shouldn’t be the way it is, even though it is.

Right?

Heh, heh, “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman” was set in the generic town of Fernwood, Ohio. I believe it went into syndication as “Forever Fernwood”. BTW, Carol Burnett did an absolutely hilarious sendup of Louise Lasser in that role.

Martin Mull spun off the location into “Fernwood 2-Nite” as host Barth Gimble & his clueless sidekick Jerry Hubbard. The already distinguished Frank de Vol directed the studio orchestra as “Happy Kine & the Mirth Makers”. Yes, it was edgy comedy for the late 70’s. Still fun to watch, IMHO.

The spanking episode possibly was exceeded in low taste by the Fernwood H.S. girls’ swim team swimming on stage, without water.

;^)

As I said, the solution to your concern is to refuse to allow government employees to spank children or teenagers.

Let their parents decide where they stand on the spanking question.
