"I got hit when I was a kid and I came out okay!"
Obviously not if you are happily talking about how you would beat your future children.
And notice how those who do NOT come out okay are told to be quiet. Nobody ever wanna talk about the broken trust, the anxieties created, the stunted communication between parent and child that lasts.
"Well suck it up because thats just how things are! Who cares about your mental health being fucked! I came out okay and so you dont matter! Our image matters more!"
