Why is that a bad thing, punching out a idiot?

Do you have a problem determining right from wrong?

I can tell you that time outs don't work unless they are backed up with the child knowing that there is going to be a spanking it the crap doesn't stop after the timeout. Sorry, raised kids and they will push boundaries and need firm loving parents to guide them.

This could be the problem we are talking about, that young people have never had a good one across their butts growing up. So anything goes, til they run into that guy from the theater.

I am advocating that learning how to manage one's anger is a good thing, and not beating up children.

The ONLY men (sexual aggressive) that really need this course are the very men who would NEVER attend it !



Do you not see any value in empowering and informing men on how to identify destructive behaviors in other men? A whole lot of real men will take a course like this and those men are extremely beneficial to have armed with that sort of awareness so they might recognize it when they see it and perhaps even influence others.

Fair fights with your peers is not the same as a grown man punching the daylights out of you.


you sure do know how to dodge direct questions when they don't fit your narrative.

so now violence is magically more OK in the subsection of "fist fighting with your peers"?

come on. this is silly.


I was using your terminology re: fair fights. Kids hitting each other is commonplace because nobody is teaching them how to control their anger and then they end up in college.


I was not referring to fair fights. I was referring to people fighting each other and then shaking hands afterwards.

I know and have known many intelligent children who know exactly when using physical force against someone is acceptable.

the world isn't as soft and as approachable as we'd like it to be. conflicts exist, and they will persist into the future.

again not children with hello kitty back packs---these are skinny jeans and rap artist tee shirts. Children they are not.

They have plenty of time to self-correct when they experience life and mature. If they don't, then colleges will offer programs to help them correct.

This is really confusing.
Why do so many lesbians dress masculine? Ya know if it's so offensive.
And why are they admitting women are to weak to deal with masculinity?


"Gender Appropriation" is a cancer on our society!!

But, YOU are the only one who brought up beating up children... no one else.

Not any men I know. This is for neck beards and facial scrub men.

please show me one college program that has turned a violent, bumbling fool of a man into a well respected member of society.

please show me one example of how ongoing violent behavior self corrects itself upon maturity.

Contact the Director's of these college programs and ask them if it does any good.

Ha, ha ha, teenagers are 18 and 19, notice the teen in there? But I would not ask for ages if this happened, we are talking about a full grown young man.

If you want to imagine beating up a child that has pull ups on and a Dora the explorer backpack go for it, trolling?

Im not being a jerk, but you should get out and jump in the trenches.. then get back to me about your ideas concerning teens being children. Ive seen 14 yr olds raising their younger siblings and doing a damned decent job. So dont lay it out that ALL teens are kids. Its an individual thing, and people are well capable of discerning how to handle each one INDIVIDUALLY.

How would you know whether they were 19 or 16 just by looking at them...you could not.
