Top Definition
A spankist is any person who has a propensity to administer spanking as their preferred form of corporal punishment. A spankist (or spanki, plural) is usually an adult who performs the spank on a young child. Spanki are most often parents or family relatives, with daycare givers or babysitters being less common examples. An elementary school teacher was once considered to be the defining institutionalized spankist, but this practice has largely abated since the Post-war era.
"As a spankist, I believe that time-out is an ineffective punishment."

One theme considered for an episodic arc for the Maury Povich Show was "You Spankist!: A focus on potentially unethical spanking."
