Superman Spanking A Woman?


Given today's sensibilities, it's hard to imagine
The Man Of Steel subjecting a member of the
fairer sex to corporal punishment.

But some 69 years ago, Superman did indeed put
a villainous woman across his knee and, in the
name of Truth, Justice & The American Way,
administered an old fashioned spanking.

And if our hero were to lay a hand on a twenty first
century woman, how might she respond?

Back in 1941, it seemed reasonable that a woman
might not be all that upset -

justice, go here.

This was more about sexual tension than discipline or abuse...I agree though that in today's world, it would not be considered such.

Please explain how this is a commentary on sexual tension, because I don't see it. It looks more like old fashioned woman beating, perhaps with some underlying sexual tension, but abuse just the same.

As a 21st-century woman who has seen the birth of Woman's Liberation and how things Used To Be... First of all, Superman is as close to a Paladin as you will ever see, so if he spanked a woman, it was because he couldn't sock her in the jaw, lol! Second, I don't doubt it was the appropriate discipline (can't let her get away with too much just because she's a woman, can he?). Third, whether it was deserved due to a serious issue or because of sexual tension, yeah, this 21st-century woman would feel much the same as the woman captioned. I'd just try real hard to have made it due to the latter, not the former. ;) Superman and Batman have a long history of spanking scenes.

A spanking, abuse? Really? Give me a break! You probably think kids shouldn't get spanked either, or have any type of discipline at all! Stand in the corner for 30 seconds & you can't have any dessert! That type of crap doesn't work, look at the state of kids now days! If they had a smack on the ass it might help them understand there's consequences to their actions! Give up the liberal bullsh!t ! It's screwing up the world!
