Hey, yeah...have you guys ever heard of this?

My friend Stefi posted today about something that was brought up on our message board about a week ago. I'd love to hear everyone's opinion on the topic, whether you post in her comments or mine.

Here's the link to her post: "On Domestic Discipline"

I read the blog that was originally linked in our message board discussion of this topic in order to learn what DD was, but Stefi is right...all you have to do is Google "domestic discipline" if you don't know what it is, and you'll find a fair amount of examples. A frightening amount, I might add. Check it out. Let us know what you think. I'd never heard of it before I read the blog we discussed in our message board, and it pretty much disgusts me, of course. Just my 2 cents.

In the case of a woman choosing to live this way I am rather unconcerned. She is just a weak individual I can do nothing about.

What bothers me is that these people have children and those small minds are molded by what they live.

Becoming a volunteer at oldests (catholic) school, I have to go through a program which includes being able to notice and report child abuse and neglect. Here is a direct paragraph from what I am learning:
Child Abuse or Neglect Defined: "child abuse" means physical injury that is inflicted by other than accidental means on a child by another person. The term "child abuse or neglect" includes sexual abuse; "neglect" means the negligent treatment or the maltreatment of a child by a person responsible for the child's welfare under circumstances indicating harm or threatened harm to the child's health or welfare. The term includes both acts and omissions on the part of the responsible person. "Willful cruelty" or "unjustifiable punishment" is defined as a situation where any person willfully causes or permits any child to suffer, or inflicts thereon, unjustifiable physical pain or mental suffering, or having the care or custody of any child, willfully causes or permits the person or health of the child to be placed in a situation such that his or her person or health is endangered.

Domestic discipline not only allows the family to abuse one another it promotes it. Basically, the only way to make a person (no matter what their age) to 'behave' is through inflicting pain whether it is emotional or physical.

That, anyone reading who disagrees, is ABUSE plain and simple. And if I encountered you or your child? You would get reported to the proper authorities. Done it before, will do it again...

My take? There should be licenses necessary to breed. Anyone practicing this bullshit is denied. And also, erased from the earth.

Do you have Leo's permission to post this stuff? ;-)

Faith said...

Hahaha @Old Fart! :P

Twin, on the blog I read (I could only get through one...seriously, it is FUCKED UP SHIT), the writer insisted that once they had children, they would not apply the same discipline methods on them. This was strictly between the husband and wife, period.

I don't know how much I believed that chick, though. She was weird. And acted like a child herself, IMO.

It's all so fucking strange!

faithstwin said...

And acted like a child herself, IMO.

Sounds about right regarding the mental capacity of anyone following this lifestyle. And I call complete bullshit on anyone who claims they won't treat the kids that way. If you already think this is the way you should act in your home, any female child will be molded to act like the mother and any male child will be molded to act like the father.

Old Fart- roles are reverse in the Faith/Leo household- a lot of the time... =O

Faith said...

OMG, stop talking about me and Leo as if we would EVAR subscribe to this ridiculous, asinine way of living! You buggars! :P:P:P

And yeah, I totally agree, Twin. And DAMMIT, the blog I read was apparently switched to "approved readers only" since I read it, so I can't give you an example of how that chick's husband refered to her! Basically, though, in one of the only posts he wrote, he spoke about her being annoying and needing control. Awesome. He sounds like a cool dude. O_o

Faith said...

Ugh...I just found the link to this blog on our message board, though, and it gives a good idea of what I'm talking about:

The fact that she would highly recommend "When in Rome" is a clue to her mental stability, I guess.

Nuke said...

As a past member of the local BDsM community I have experience with exchanges of power in personal relationships. There are people of either gender (or the transgendered) who feel the need to submit to an authority outside themselves. As for the men, being able to dominate another's will is an ego enhancer. Most of the people in the lifestyle treat it like role play tho, not a religious indoctrination.

Unlike churchers, kinksters know that this kind of thing is supposed to be strictly between the adult parties involved and does not include children even as passive observers. Children, like animals, are considered unable to make an informed consent to take part.

So the fact that people choose to live in such arrangement doesn't surprise me. But I find the institutionalized (even ritualized) way that new generations are brought up in that environment deplorable. Shit like this reminds me of cults, and that always reminds me of my Moms cousin cutting his penis off with a hatchet for the lord.

After reading all of that, it sounds exactly like dominant-submissive play. It's watered down to make it more palatable to the Christians who want to explore the fetish, without feeling guilty for doing it. Because as long as you attach a God to it, you won't go to hell.

Money says this is less about God, and more about getting your rocks off...for both parties.

faithstwin said...

I, too, thought 'this is more sexually charged than it seems on the surface' before I even read that chicks one blog entry you linked to, Faith. After reading it? Yeah- they totally were all turned on, had sex, then cuddled.

Ummm, it's soooo 'soft' bdsm.

This is more hilarious than they even realize! It's Christian PORN! The way that chick described how he spanked her one way? Thenh spanked her a slightly different way, only harder? Then took a break... I could go on and on.

I should REALLY piss her off and say I am copying and pasting her post and sending it into Penthouse Letters. =D

Faith said...

I so wish the other chick that I read last week hadn't made hers private!!! She was insistent that their DDing had nothing to do with Christianity, and was NOT sexual in any way. It was CRAZY.

Because, dude...her husband was soooo getting off on it. So, so absolutely was. She said, "He hates having to punish me, really he does!" Um, yeah, that's why he seems to want to spank you for everything from doing your hir wrong to getting a ticket for speeding. Fucking dolt. ::roll eyes::

I find it fascinating, but still...just weird.

Faith said...

"hir" = "hair" by the way. Stupid keyboard...

Alisha said...

Yes, Lloyd and I both think it's soft-core BDSM or spank-fetish by people who are Christian and afraid of their kinks.

So crazy!

My slave - after I removed the chainmail gag ball from her mouth - agrees: total bondage and submission.
