“Our memories are not computers capable of storing accurate data — especially during traumatic events — despite what many “experts” would have you believe. It is actually really easy to corrupt our memories, whether through hypnosis or not. In 1995, professor Elizabeth Loftus — a distinguished professor at the University of California-Irvine and expert on human memory —? conducted a study with Jacqueline Pickrell — a research scientist at the University of Washington-Seattle — that found people could easily “recall” a traumatic memory that didn’t actually happen with just a little help.”
Twenty to fifty percent of study participants accepted a false memory as “real”?!…
…That is horrendous, and deeply concerning.

“Todd Nickerson and Elliott discuss the reason why the MAP community on Twitter exists and what our ultimate goal is.”
I’m glad someone else broached this issue…though, frankly, there is a lot to raise an eyebrow over…and as usual…listening to something like this is extremely taxing…at times, insulting on a number of levels…
…I’m tired of feeling like I’m being treated as though I were stupid, for demanding transparency and full integrity out of a system that purports to study and report on us…
…and I’m tired of this judgement coming out of other MAPs who have the gall, to repeat the rhetoric of a system, fundamentally designed to create and perpetuate a distorted social view on MAPs, human sexuality and childhood/youth sexuality…and some, even acting as lap dogs for that very same system…
In Nazi Germany, I believe there was a name for these sorts of turncoats…
This is a hard issue to discuss…but it is out there…it does exist…and it’s important for us to understand that it is taking place…
…and that there are some self identified MAPs, who are themselves posing an active threat towards other MAPs.
Philosophically and ethically, I have never been opposed to any culture or society allowing for liberal sexual freedoms to all people, regardless of age, race, orientation, etc…I do not view such cultures as morally defective…They merely deal with human sexuality in their own way, sometimes different from the majority of other cultures…It’s nothing to lose our minds over.
I do, however, very strongly advise people to know and follow the laws of their homeland, and that of whatever land they are presently in, to avoid running foul of either.
If you have had some sort of a legally questionable past…know that there are certain types of MAP out there, who are all to willing to throw you under the bus…sometimes, even over the mere flimsiest of suspicions.
You should never run your laundry list of compromising traits and issues across anyone, solely because you presume they should empathize with you.
A number of them wont…Some of them will throw you to the wolves, based on their sole, personal perception of what you’ve shared with them…and whatever their suspicious mind presumes about you.
Sometimes, MAPs are a danger to other MAPs…and this has been one of the most frustrating things about this type of activism…It’s why so many MAPs go it alone, and keep other MAPs at a distance…You don’t always know who you can trust…Sometimes, there are MAPs who you should never trust, under any circumstances…
This is not about having any sort of guilty conscience…
…This is about the fact, that MAPs have no business doing this sort of thing to other MAPs, based on a hunch or a suspicion…
…Among MAPs…this is the line, which is literally the unforgivable sin.

“Legendary journalist Dan Rather joins The Beat on the historic first day of the public Trump impeachment hearings. Rather, who covered Watergate and the Clinton impeachment for CBS News, explains what makes these proceedings different: It’s the first time an impeachment proceeding concerned questions of whether a president sought a foreign power’s involvement in elections, and “very serious military, national security issues.” Aired on 11/13/19.”

“An indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney, said he discussed Ukraine with the president at a private dinner for super PAC donors in Washington, according to The Washington Post.
Lev Parnas, who, along with his business partner Igor Fruman, has been indicted in connection with an alleged campaign finance fraud scheme, has told associates that the two told Trump at the 2018 dinner in his Washington hotel that then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was hostile to his interests, the Post reported on Tuesday.
