As a noun? Google Translate says it is une fessée.

In a way surprising, but I suppose France has seen itself as progressive, especially in recent years.

Best avoid French then. Too many pitfalls and "faux amis" - words that son't mean what they seem.

Je vais bien is effectively meaningless. It would be understood as "I'm going [somewhere] as I speak, well."

America might be the last western nation to allow spanking soon.

I think you may be right. Though I think it will continue to exist in most Asian countries for a long time. I am not sure about South America and Mexico though I doubt it will be banned there for some time as well. I am surprised Spain has banned it if indeed that is the case. By the way I think I recall reading something that said the Pope is now against spanking!

Actually Garth, the Pope came out in favor of spanking, as long as the child's dignity is preserved.

As a board, I think most if not all of us are against actual humiliation of a child (above and beyond some natural embarrassment of deserving punishment in the first place), so I'd say the Pope has a pretty good view on the subject, especially considering the fact that he has no children of his own.
