They stated that spanking was an acceptable form of CP as long as it was done with ones hand and did not extend to areas other than the butt, arms, and legs, and did not cause any injury. HCP is classified as anything above that, whether it be using an object, or causing pain and injury from anger.

    gradation from lightest to darkest, which in most case, is white to black. In such scale, the shades white and black represent two contrasting extremes as they parallel the idea of morality, where white is right and black is wrong. However, the complication arises at the area between the white and black: the grey. The grey area possesses no absolute verdict, for one can be both morally right and wrong. Russian realist Anton Chekhov implements such perception as he colours the story with white,…
