A second comment I left, regarding something in this podcast episode.
Note: It may come off somewhat contradictory, that I start off by acknowledging Stacy Lynn Harp may be parroting bigoted hate speech, out of ignorance…to end up calling what she has done, the tactic of scoundrels. I acknowledge this up front, and agree that this probably could have been worded better. That being said, there is a lot of willful ignorance in this field…and many players, who dogmatically believe that their personal idea of “child safety” trumps all else. I believe it is safe to say, that Stacy falls into that category. Whether she fully realizes that she is employing a hateful stereotype, is another question…but the fact that she would so easily go negative like that, in a live interview on television, says a lot about her.
Periodically, I find myself listening to older episodes of your podcast which I’ve got on an mp3 player…and this episode came up…I see I’ve already left a response…
…but, I wanted to add another observation.
Anymore, I don’t expect people employing stereotypes and bigotry to be anything less than ignorant of the fact that they are doing so. Many people honestly believe what they are saying…in no small degree, thanks to censorship and a cultural lack of exposure to this issue, the people it involves and the plain representation of all aspects to it.
Notice the chosen words of Stacy Lynn Harp, when she tries to rebuff the point that much of what people say about us [Child/Teen-Lovers] is factual hate speech…”[…] prey on your children […]”.
Stacy employs hate speech, during her very attempt to shrug off and side step the point.
…Was she even aware enough, to realize she was doing this?…Who knows…I’ve paid a bit more attention to her [and her podcast] over the years…and she comes off as ignorant and naive to an extreme…Indoctrinated, would also be a very fair choice of word to describe her.
“Hate speech” is words employed with intent to cause harm to the standing, or well being, of another…It’s goal is typically to dehumanize others, and dismiss them to the level of depravity…danger…”a monster”…
It assigns only the worst elements to it’s targeted class…while depriving it’s target, of anything redeeming…Indeed, this practice often denies whatever good does exist in it’s target.
Stacy Lynn Harp has dictated from her bully pulpit…that we [BoyLovers and Girl-Lovers] “prey on your children”…a cliche talking point, outrageously divorced from objective reality.
“Prey” means, of course, to stalk, attack and destroy another, solely for ones own benefit.
…It is a very primal, survival pursuit…which conjures up the mental image of one animal killing and eating another.
It is outright shameful, that Stacy Lynn Harp was allowed to get away with using this kind of blatant hate speech against us.
Neither killing nor destroying a child/teen, is a natural motivator of a Child/Teen-Lover.
Her choice of wording, is intended to make us seem as irredeemable and dangerous as humanly possible.
…This tactic is despicable…and it’s amongst the primary reason, why a lot of these hate mongers [like Judith Reisman, Petra Luna, Stacy Lynn Harp, etc, etc] have garnered my ire and harsher rebuke, in more recent times.
Their pursuit is not one seeking truth or understanding…They are simply out there, to ram an ideology down everybody’s throat, at whatever cost…and they don’t care who they hurt [directly, or as collateral damage]…Indeed, some people are outright gleeful over the fact that they have hurt another person…[It has been my consistent experience, the anti-pedophile groups attract a lot of extremely malicious people]…
They are so bankrupt of integrity and good ethics, that when faced with anything good or humanizing about us, they still go back to the same dogmatic, abusive mischaracterizations about people like us, as a whole.
Hate speech is extremely destructive and hurtful, towards entire demographics of society…both directly, and collaterally…It builds social barriers, by propping up stereotypes and mentally indoctrinating [ie: brainwashing] the public.
I wish more people would clearly understand, that the primary objective of hate speech when employed the way Stacy has, is to undermined the very ability of it’s intended target, to even so much as gain their social standing/footing and authoritatively refute what is being said about them. It is intended to rob people of their voice and social standing.
When you can successfully manipulate the public ignorance like this…You create the illusion, that there is no credible refutation to your own stance…and effectively, you create an easy path for yourself…where you can say anything you please, without fear of being taken to task for it in any meaningful way.
This is why stereotypes are so valuable to certain groups of people [and so viciously defended]…If their stance is indefensible or has serious problems in it, they can still get their way by using this underhanded tactic to neutralize any opposition.
People often do not take us serious, because they believe the stereotypes about us…and people like Stacy, Petra, Judith, etc, exploit this to no end.
Hate speech is the tactic of scoundrels, who have nothing of substance or integrity to stand on.
