Q&A from a 1950s Era Newspaper: “If a Woman Needs It, Should She Be Spanked?” — A Resounding “YES” ...

This is a pretty amazing clipping from a 1950s edition of the New York Daily Mirror. In the paper, four men from Brooklyn were asked one simple question: “If a woman needs it, should she be spanked?”

No, this isn’t a joke. And “yes” is how each respondent answered.

MIGUEL MATOS, Brooklyn, counterman: “Why not? If they don’t know how to behave by the time they’re adults, they should be treated like children and spanked. That ought to make them grow up in a hurry. If it doesn’t at first, they’ll soon get the idea.”

FRANK DESIDERIO, Brooklyn, barber: “Yes, when they deserve it. As a barber, I’ve got a lot of faith in the hairbrush. I think there are certain cases when it is advisable. When it is there’s no reason why you shouldn’t go right ahead and do it. I can’t knock the idea. In my business, a man sets a lot of store by the results he can get with a hairbrush properly applied.”

TEDDY GALLEI, Brooklyn, parking lot attendant: “You bet. It teaches them who’s boss. A lot of women tend to forget this is a man’s world and a lot of men who stepped down as boss of a family wish they hadn’t. Spanking might help get back some of the respect they lost.”

WILLIAM DAVIS, Brooklyn, toy factory owner: “Yes. Most of them have it coming to them anyway. If they don’t, it will remind them how well off they are. I subscribe to the theory that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
