Corporal Punishment is Fucking Terrible and That is Extremely Old News

[TRIGGER WARNING: CHILD ABUSE]

Seriously, psychologists have known for decades that corporal punishment both has many negative effects on the child and DOESN'T ACTUALLY WORK AT ALL. If you think you turned out fine despite being hit by your parents as a kid, I don't actually care. The fact is that most kids will be way worse off if their parents hit them. It's terrible for all reasons, always, forever, for everyone, full stop, DISCUSSION FUCKING OVER.
