Don’t worry though, your kid mutilating himself is still legal
I don’t have kids, but when I do, they’re gonna be raised properly – and that includes beating the shit out of them when they deserve it.
Smacking children will soon become illegal in Wales, after ministers voted in favour of a new ban.
On Tuesday, Welsh Assembly Members voted 36 to 14 in the Senedd in favour of the Welsh Government bill.
Wales will now join 58 other nations, including Scotland, to end the physical punishment of children.
If any of those countries actually cared about children, there are many actual good things that they could do for them.
Like making sure they don’t become a stateless people when they grow up.
That’s a real problem, and one you could actually solve.
Opponents of the new law argue, which is set to come into effect from 2022, will criminalise parents and increase pressure on already-stretched social services.
But ministers have promised to deliver an extensive awareness campaign before the law is implemented.
The new legislation will remove the common law defence of reasonable punishment, which is currently available to parental figures if accused of assault or battery against a child.
It is the first divergence of core criminal law between Wales and England, where parents would still be able to legally physically punish a child as long as it is deemed ‘reasonable’.
Of course, we can’t have anything as reasonable as disciplining your kids, that’s just straight up fascism.
It literally caused six million kikes to be jerked off until they turned into detergent.
First Minister Mark Drakeford said ‘times had changed’ and that physically disciplining children was no longer a part of modern society.
He said: ‘I’m proud Wales has taken this step and once again put children’s rights at the heart of what we do here in Wales.
‘Protecting children and giving them the best start in life should always be our priority.
‘Times have changed and there is no place in a modern society for the physical punishment of children.
People are the same, no matter how the times change (I hate that expression, it means literally nothing).
When your kid does something he shouldn’t do, you smack him over the mouth, and when your kid does something he should do, you give him some kind of reward.
Kids are basically retarded and can’t understand anything, and so you need to reinforce discipline this way for their own good.
Nothing else really works, which is why this simplistic form of discipline exists uniformly across all races and subraces and cultures in the world.
But opponents of the law change said it would do nothing to help children at risk of being abused and would have a ‘negative impact’ on families.
Dr Ashley Frawley, a sociologist at Swansea University and spokeswoman for the Be Reasonable Wales campaign, said: ‘The smacking ban bill is simply bad policy.
‘It will result in highly negative intervention in good families, increased pressure on beleaguered social services departments and will do nothing to help children who are genuinely at risk of abuse.
‘The Government has chosen to ignore a plethora of concerns about this legislation. Sadly, it seems the negative impact of the smacking ban will only be realised when it has come into force.”
A letter from a group made up of individuals from the fields of sociology, criminology, child psychology and parenting had earlier urged AMs to oppose a change in the law, describing it as a ‘dangerous experiment’.
The one time “experts” get something right, it’s ignored…
That’s because what “experts” think doesn’t matter.
The only thing that matters is destroying Europeans, and a big step towards that is the government interfering with families, which has historically been catastrophic even when your society isn’t subverted by inbred desert rats.
