People think that a beating/whooping/spanking will fix everything?
For example- I was in class, stating my opinion about the value of life & things that I find are pointless. I can't quite remember what I said, but it was something among that. Then a lady (maybe late 40's-50's) said "I bet if I had a belt, I could change your mind quick".... Like... Really? How is that going to make me feel different about my opinion. Mind you, I never really get upset but I just wanted to punch her in her throat and ask her how she could be so ignorant! But I didn't because I felt that would have been disrespectful to my elder.
But really, guys... What is a belt going to do to my brain to make me change my mind? I'll probably only end up wanting to gouge your eyes out.
