Remember that gay-segregation bill that almost became a law in Kansas? Well, the Kansas legislature is at it again:

A Kansas state representative has introduced a bill that would allow teachers and caregivers to spank children up to 10 times, hard enough to cause redness and bruising, according to a report.

House member Gail Finney, a Democrat from Wichita, said the bill aims to restore parental rights, according to KCTV5.

Seems like Kansas politicians are buying into the idea that you can turn back the clock to some mythical "good old days," when non-white, non-straight people "just acted normal," and when you could beat a child into behaving properly. If Kansas lawmakers had their way, their state would become one huge square anachronism, a cross between Amish country and Main Street USA, smack in the middle of the country.
