This Adrian Peterson thing is such a clusterfuck.
You know what happens when you discipline an animal with violence? They eventually bite you.
Parents have to do better. All parents. Should AP get a pass because he’s black and “that’s just how black parents raise their kids”? I’m seeing this on twitter a lot. Black kids should just get beat? I ask legitimately because I can’t accept that but so many others can. Old school is the best and only way for small African American kids? Wuuut.
The argument of “well I got beat just as bad and I turned out fine” is not a great point cause you turned out to be an adult that doesn’t see a problem in a a giant muscled out man beating his kid to the point where he is bleeding and has marks all over his body a week later. A kind of person that doesn’t take issue with a dad threatening to punch his four year old child in the face. One that thinks it’s okay to use a switch on a kids scrotum and stuff leaves in his mouth. You being okay with your abuse doesn’t mean that other people are okay with it and turn out “fine”. I want to dismiss all the twitter buzz as just the very ignorant being the loudest and not worry that the majority of people are idiots that can’t see things beyond the headlines of the story or their own childhood memories.
I’m not even 100 percent against a pop on the butt with your hand kind of spanking. But this should be rare and never should it hurt the child. If you can’t control yourself to leave it at that then get some help. Read a parenting book or see a professional. Parenting is a real tough job that takes patience and a fuck ton of self control. We got some lazy ass parents out here that would rather smack a kid then put in the work to correct their behavior. Smh. How can you equate what APs son went through with just a normal spanking? Y’all crazy.
Tldr: if you don’t got no chill don’t get married and have kids.

Finally got to sing all the words along with Sameer.

The Turkish company Pugedon has recently introduced a vending machine that’s an innovative way to help both the environment and our furry friends. It releases food for the city’s stray dogs and cats every time a plastic bottle is deposited, and it allows people to empty their water bottles for the animals as well.
This wonderful service operates at no charge to the city because the recycled plastic pays for the cost of food. So, with a little financial investment, the simple machines do a lot of good. They provide a steady source of sustenance to the animals, many of which rely on caring residents to regularly feed them. It also encourages people to make a habit of recycling and help conserve our environment for future generations.
Put these everywhere
