I believe in the potential for more harmonious and respectful gender relations in society where women feel safe to befriend and trust men and men act in a worthy manner. Because of biological and hormonal realities inherent in men, there needs to be appropriate education on women's rights backed up by meaningful laws and consequences for men and adolescent boys who physically or sexually abuse women or girls. Historically, and in the modern day in nations such as Singapore, it has been demonstrated that the threat and application of judicial corporal punishment (ie. flogging) keeps uncivilized male behavior under control and creates a society where women feel safe, valued, and justly treated. Nowadays, we have the benefit of modern forensics to secure the necessary convictions and the benefit of hindsight to see what has worked and is working elsewhere. So what are we waiting for?

Proper laws have an important educative impact on society and on us all individually. We need to keep an open mind to the lash as a potential tool in the toolbox of the criminal justice system for men. If you are a woman who is skeptical that the lash would have a big impact on male conduct, check with any man you know to see how motivated he would be to make sure that he did not do anything that would put him on the receiving end of the lash.
What Gives Me Hope
The modern Singaporean justice system which demonstrates that flogging can be part of a modern-day justice system in an advanced society with very successful results.

Try to improve the legal system to remove gender-related biases from the legal system. For example, the determination of guilt or innocence in sex crimes should be based on facts and not political correctness. The only gender-based double standard that should be allowed in society is the application of whipping to males only based on the biological and psychological fitness of males for such punishment, the testosterone-driven impulses of males that result in crimes for which whipping is an appropriate penalty, and need for society to avoid any dangerous role modelling of beating women. All whipping should be applied as professionally and humanely as possible and proper steps should be taken to eradicate prison violence so that people get exactly the punishment to which they were sentenced without any additional random punishments.

"If a society is not willing to whip its men to protect its women, that society cannot say that it is willing do everything that it can to protect women." AND "If you want to improve relations between men and women, it takes just a few feet of leather or rattan cane to make a big difference."
