On "Being Hit By A Shoe Is Not Torture"

For those who say being hit by a shoe is not torture, I have a proposition. If they themselves are willing to be hit by a shoe, repeatedly, with no power to tell the other person to stop, for as long as it lasts and no matter what damage is done to them and they come out the other side and say it isn't torture, I might listen to them. Otherwise, it is all just blah, blah, blah. Torture is about power and who holds it. It is about making the victim feel that his body is of no consequence and that another person holds the power to decide whether pain is inflicted upon it. It doesn't matter if it is a shoe or a whip. If you don't get to decide when enough is enough, you are being tortured.
