    Its a generalization is it not? I never qualified your generalizations as "terrible" or worthy of stormfront

    No, it is a summary of contemporary Turkish politics. If it's a stereotype, it stems from valid roots.

    Quote from: Arab-Wannabe
    (although I think many many many anti-islam sites are just stormfronts against Muslims, including FFI)

    Lol, talk about stereotypes now! Such integrity!

    Quote from: Arab-Wannabe
    after all if I said I spoke to god yesterday... most people (and Im including atheists here) would label me crazy.

    Mohammad did exactly this, yet a billion Muslims worship his fictional deity. Go figure.

    Also, didn't you accuse Cheetah of racism some time ago? That was your cheapest strawman ever, and it just shows how easily you get stuck in your hypothetical constructs.


    I dont recall accusing Cheetah of racism, perhaps you can refresh my memory?

    You were whining about how one of our members was angry at you because you were a white convert, who turned out to be Cheetah. And of course, what she said was completely different than what you imagined it to be, so Cheetah had easily refuted your complaints.

    You always whine about bigotry AW, you always use the race card, you always toss your strawmen around. You always refer to your experiences and a bunch of "Muslim friends" who, apparently, represent the entire Islamic landscape. You make a revisionist statement about Mohammad's pedophilia, expecting us to take that statement for granted without providing any evidence or arguments, then you avoid any related discussion because... we are all evil bigots hellbent on the destruction of Islam. Integrity?

    No, liar, you brought it up

    "You always complain about hyperboles. For you, our criticism of Mohammad's pedophilia was also an hyperbole. Right?"

    to which I responded:

    This one time I were watching TV, and my mum got bored so she decided to get her cane thing and start chasing me all over the house with it. Also my dad would throw his footwear at me when drunk. Now they deny everything.

    Hitting children when they do something they shouldn't do is something for lazy parents in my opinion.
    I used to get hit by my parents. Usually I did the same things a over and over again before I decided by myself to not do it anymore.
    If my parents hugged me and asked me really nice and polite to not do it again, I'd probably stop doing it out of love.

    There was a Turkish woman murdered at her front door just 2 or 300 meters from my home.
    It turned out that she was killed by her son (in the 30's with some psychological disorders), because he had an awful youth.

    Same.
    My Dad was very trigger happy and it happened everytime my brothers didn't read or do their homework, clean, if we ever said no or dared to question them.
    My Mom even had her own "weapons" to use, i remember my elder sister having her ear pierced without asking and my Mom held her down and ripped the earring out. It has all stopped now and likewise my parents have suffered memory loss on all those events

    But even with all that occuring, i do think spanking as a last resort or that sort of discipline can be good for the child given the right circumstances

    I was smacked when I was a kid but was smacked in moderation. That is why it doesn't affect me particularly and smacking in moderation does no or little harm. However, some parents do take the michael and where would you draw the line between harmless smacking and abuse.

    I remember what we had to do in madrasah when we misbehaved! We had quite an old Afghan man as our teacher, and he used to make us put our arms between our legs, hold our ears and stand in that position. It is called the "Kaan Pakar" (Ear hold) or "Kukar" (Chicken). That was a really horrible punishment as you are standing in that position and your muscles really start aching. I know a lot of parents do that as well and I think that sort of punishment could be psychologically worse for a child than smacking. It is a mild form of torture!

I was smacked occasionally and it has done me no harm. Most people in the world were probably smacked as children. Are most of the world suffering from severe psychological damage becaause of it?

    Well to be fair Islame, when canes were removed from British schools, a generation of rude and ill mannered teenagers have been raised in comparison to the generations above us who are not like that at all.

    I don't know about you but i see a strong line between abuse and beating a child for fun and smacking a child lightly for discipline. If i ever have children, i would not hesitate in spanking if it was needed and truth be told, if our society had disciplined my generation a bit more. I doubt we would have ended up so messed up. As a teen, i knew people in school who smacked their parents, spat on teachers or hit them etc.

    The reason you sometimes need to smack your kids is because kids are kids. They don't think as rationally as adults and occasionally, the the simple solution will work; a smack. They do something really bad, they get smacked for it, and they see the cause and effect. It also shows them who has the authority. And kids won't hit other children at shcool if they think they are misbehaving because they know that they don't have any authority.

    It is not as simple as "to smack or not to smack" and a line has to be drawn. I would never ever condone beatings and stuff like the "kukar". That is just plain wrong and abuse.

    No they weren't.
    Labour has been slowly strangling a parents right to discipline their own children and then they turn around and whine about the lack of respect and parental control.
    We are just lucky Labour didn't pass a outright ban on spanking.

    Perhaps there is a middle way with discipline. Too much is counter-productive and too little is so kind it's cruel. You should discipline a child in a consensual way if you can, such as telling the child to sit on the naughty step and if they comply, then it shows that they respect your disciplinary action and realize they deserved it. That is the most important thing, that they realize they deserved it. That is the whole point of discipline. Now when you hit a child, you do not know whether your child believes he/she deserves it yet, so you shouldn't do it. Some children that were hit as a child actually turn out okay - this is because even though the treatment they were given was harsh, they understand why they received it and they take that on board, thus the discipline was successful. Some children that were hit as a child turn out to be rebellious and lack closeness to their parents - this is because they were disciplined in a harsh way and they didn't understand or respect the discipline but rather they focused upon the fact it was harsh and instead of accepting judgment they pass judgment on the judges.

    If your child doesn't obey your disciplinary orders then I personally think there is nothing more effective than being given the silent treatment. That way your not actually coercing the child in any particular way either, so the child won't judge you as easily.

    I'm a great believer in discipline but the conception that discipline is a one-way street I totally disagree with. It is definitely a two-way street. This conception of discipline is easier to fit in coherently with a Libertarian belief, too, which I think is very important.

    Its bullying, pure & simple.  The sad fact is that the kids who have not been exposed to it, are more likely to be bullied by other children that were smacked & see physical force as an acceptable method of enforcement.
