I cannot stand the line of questioning I get when someone who spanks finds out I don’t. I don’t ask them why they *do* I don’t even comment on it. And then they bring up weird scenarios “would you spank him then.” I answer “no” and then they want to know what I would do in that situation, as if I must have a plan for when kiddo breaks a window just to piss me off (one of the what-ifs). And if I don’t have a plan for that then obviously I’m being naive thinking not spanking will ever work. Or when they tell me my kid is going to hit me when he gets bigger. WHY?! that doesn’t even make sense! I mean, I know a lot of people buy into that logic (or lack thereof) but I don’t get it. Fuck.

I'm also a white cis woman & am aware that that comes with privileges, I'm always welcome to call-outs & if I miss my similarly privileged followers being shitheads on posts I reblogged feel free to let me know & I'll call them out.
