  •  Why some call him "Spanky" (5+ / 0-)

    If anyone would like to read some jaw-dropping misogyny from Dave Sim, I think his "how-to guide for wife-beating" qualifies.

    "This is why I recommend a measured response: knowing your strength as a husband and father. Each spank has to be hard enough to produce genuine pain, but not hard enough to produce bruising or blood-letting. The point is to make the experience unforgettable and cause an aversion to it that, in turn, cause the wife or child in question to really reconsider embarking on or continuing in course of action which might lead to a spanking. One good spanking should be sufficient for a six-month or year long period of good behavior if it is administered properly. The thing to do is to educate men in how to spank properly so as to achieve the desired results; relative peace and relative quiet. 'Peace and quiet' always being relative terms when you are discussing women and children, as I'm sure you'll agree."
