    Remember this when you hear people talk abut the good old days... Should A Woman Be Spanked? It was not a sexual question. Asked of four Brooklyn men by the now defunct “New York Daily Mirror.” Looks like late 1950s.

    A 1950s clipping from what is believed to be the New York Daily Mirror. Funny how things have come full circle? Once again, spanking is all the rage. 'Cept these days women who are spanked aren't "asking for it," they're BEGGING for it.

    1950s newspaper article: Should A Woman Be Spanked? WOW - along with the pictures of four men whose wives probably hated them. Domestic violence encouraged !

    Wow. I have to thank all the women before me who have paved the way to where we are today. Some may think we're still not there, but we're a heck of a lot further than this "Fred Flintstones" way of thinking. (Not that Fred would ever hit Wilma), it's just an archaic way of thinking. Eye opener. To spank or not to spank ?
