The only person you can legally hit in the United States is a child.

Hit your partner, and you’ll be arrested for domestic violence. Hit another adult, and you’ll be arrested for assault. But hit a 4-year-old, and you can call yourself a “loving father”. That’s completely screwed up.

It should be against the law for a fully grown adult to slap, hit, spank, punch, switch, whoop, whip, paddle, kick or belt a defenseless child in the name of discipline. But it is legal, and new research in the Journal of Family Psychology suggests that the average 4-year-old is hit 936 times a year.

If study after study conclusively proves that hitting your kids doesn’t work as a disciplinary method, and worse, it has long-term damaging impact to their psychology and makes your kids more aggressive, why do we as a society allow it?

All us white autistics need to shut up and sit down when it comes to the experiences of autistic people of colour and most importantly we need to listen, yes some concepts might be confusing but please try and understand, because for gods sake people of colour have had to learn it all and so should we.

i think removing ableist language from your vocabulary is essential, but if you’re just continuing to do shit like linking intelligence to worth, or using intelligence-based insults, then, honestly, what is the point
