This thread's title should be renamed to "Camouflaged Neanderthals Emerge!". The minority of child-focused posters' attitude is heartening but as I said earlier, it's frightening what some people appear to genuinely believe. Thank goodness our lawmakers didn't bow to the mob -- some of the people who've posted in this thread is a perfect illustration of why a majoritarian direct democracy is a terrible idea. Kids are naughty? Hit them. Don't like someone of a particular group? Exclude them.
On and on it goes.
