BoyLovers and Gays: Who is “Dragging Down” Who?…


Date: April 30, 2013

…BoyChat Response…

…BoyChat Response…

“…’use ’em and throw ’em away’ is a common interpretation of such affairs. Some gay men subscribe to ideologies that value temporary relationships, cruising, one-night stands and even anonymous sex, but heterosexuals are very unlikely to take this up as official line, despite the existence of naughty swingers’ clubs.”

Good incite…

…Often gays like to expound on how association with us has damaged them so badly…Yet Child Lovers and Teen Lovers have been no less damaged, by the sexual baggage of the gay community…and yes, the “normal” heterosexual community, also.

In fact, I would argue that we got the far worse end of this deal…We have to unfairly contend with these gay stereotypes, which dismiss us as “looking for anyone to shove our dicks in”…

…”Meat truck orgies”…”Bath houses”…”Regular anonymous sex”…

I’m not trying to devalue anybody else’s life experiences…but at the same time, that is not me

Short of being pulled into something like that as a boy, and at the efforts of other kids [and maybe not even then]…I would not have ever in my life, ended up doing any of those things…I’ve never done any of that…

I see it as reckless and very dangerous behavior…and it is not something I associate with being a BoyLover.

It’s always bothered me that BoyLovers get tainted with this stereotype, just because our natural relationships are same sex.

And yes…For the record, a lot of gays do not do those things, either…It’s not right to associate what a minority does, with the rest of the majority.

Truth is Truth, No Matter Who Likes It: Walter Jenkins “Made in the USA” – A Book Review…


Date: April 25, 2013

…Made in the USA: Memoir of a Sex Offender…

…Made in the USA: Memoir of a Sex Offender…

I honestly had to reflect on this book for some time, before offering a public review…This is largely because I really wrestled with the personal conflict over thinking it a really tragic choice of wording, when Walter repeatedly referenced manifestations of his sexual orientation as being akin to “an addiction”…while at the same time, knowing it is not my place to tell another human being how to sum up their own life…

It still felt wrong and somewhat grating…unfair…because it may be a culturally unappreciated orientation…it may be a socially damned sexual orientation…but it is still a sexual orientation, just as sure as that of any other human being…However, most people are not forced, like Walter, to carry their own sexual orientation like a personal and social burden…

…I read this book over a year ago…and I let the unease mellow…Eventually [and all along, really], I figured the wording was intentional in order to couch Walters life story, into some fashion more digestible to “mainstream sensibilities”…just so it could be told, at all…or at least be told, and still hold some hope in being accepted on some level.

This is the true life story of Walter Jenkins…a man who is not only sexually attracted to boys, but who realized a number of sexual encounters with boys [along with accompanying relationships, with said boys]…I appreciate Walters frankness, and down to earth personal assessment…even if I don’t always sense Walter is fair to himself, or to his circumstances…

Most people never get to know the details, of these types of lives…what kinds of things happened…what was going through the mind of “the pedophile” during all of this…the real complexities, of living this kind of life under “current era” cultural circumstances…

Walter does a respectable job, in walking us through his journey…introducing us to himself and his profession…to boys he just knew…to the boy he had his first experience with…and to the handful of others, over which it might be said…that Walter lost touch with his healthy sense of caution and reservation [which Walter calls his “addiction to boys”…but I theorize was more liberated euphoria in the face of formerly denied attraction, than anything else]. Nothing is sugar coated, and Walter even admits to a thing or two, he is not proud of.

…We also get to see what it is like, after Walter has been discovered…arrested…prosecuted…imprisoned…and all the aftermath, trying to re-establish himself into society.

There are a number of enlightening accounts in this book…ones which I think everybody aught to understand…How people like Walter are treated, has got to be one of the single most disastrous in public relations policies today…for as Walters own story attests [as that of so many others], once discovered, you are perpetually an outcast…Walter overcame this, but for many others, they do not…and this is an abysmal way to cripple people, who are dealing with having these kinds of sexual orientations.

People like Walter are expected to pick themselves up, rebuild their lives and return to a productive life…but with so many social barriers…how are they to manage this?…

Even realizing that this book is a self account, and potential could exist for an author overlooking things about themselves…I never had the sense, that Walter was being anything less than honest…He owned up to a lot…He didn’t romanticize anything…it rang true…I was left sincerely thinking, Walters fate did not fit his behavior…For what all he did, Walter did not deserve the harsh fate he received, in my opinion…

This book was a good read, in my opinion…Not only that, but it is an important read…and it struck a lot of cords with me, personally. I hold a great deal of respect for Walter Jenkins, for having the courage to write and publish this book.

This is Such a Great Story…

…Stricken boy’s dream comes true, thanks to clever photographer…

“Luka,12, has muscular dystrophy, but photos show him enjoying various activities.”

A beautiful story, which puts a lot of things into perspective…

…That is a true expression of love…

May we find a cure for Luka, in his lifetime…sweet boy…

How About Equality in Rights to Speech?…


Date: April 23, 2013

…Video Posted: Dialogue Confronting Sexism Proceeds While Protestors Scream to Shut Down Event [Dead Link]…

…mras and feminists arguing at u of t mra event…

…FEMINISM vs. FREEDOM OF SPEECH…


There is a lot of swearing in these videos…You’ve been warned.


These are the same people, who pulled the fire alarm during a conference on sexual equality issues…

Aside from a lot of extremely nasty condescension and “shut the fuck up”s…Some of the things we find this young “lady” speaking about are…

…”reinforces rape culture”…something about physical advantages of males, and feminists hate patriarchy…

What I was able to glean from this mess…sounded an awful lot like red herrings, and straw-men…

…Allegedly, what the University of Toronto Men’s Issues Awareness club was doing…these “feminists” are trying to claim creates a social atmosphere which promotes patriarchy…which allegedly leads to “rape culture”, and a world which is horrible to women…

In short…a group which is speaking out on the equal rights of men and boys [something which is direly needed, in this day and age, as those rights are being destroyed and drown out], is being accused of trying to dismantle everything that feminists have accomplished…apparently, for nothing more than standing up for males rights.

It’s telling to notice…

…the red haired female is quite irritated about having her own statement being interrupted…while seemingly oblivious, that she just got done participating in the disruption and censorship of another group…

…Amazing…It’s just amazing, that this level of anti-sophistication even exists…

This is one of the biggest problems with our species…the mounting social contempt, which groups have towards each other.

…People who decide that they “know what you stand for”, that “you are wrong” and that “you have no right to speak”, are probably the worst social relations problem we face…all of us, as human beings.

Note: I don’t know enough about the Canadian Association for Equality, to give any sort of endorsement…I just thought the behavior of those “feminists” was so disgusting, that it deserved a response.

That is the incredibly ugly side of “feminism”, which so many people are fed up with…There is no excuse for that.

Blog Log…


Note: I’m going to delete this log, when I’m ready to start publishing again…It’s here, just to let people know what’s going on…since I know, so much of what I am doing you really cant see…and it might otherwise seem like I’m doing nothing.


July 10, 2013

I think I’m going to purchase a space upgrade…At $20 a year, I can go back to keeping my own MP3s [music] right on my blog…having it available on it’s own, without pesky commercials…like it was, back on blog.com. I just hate the idea, of all the time and work that it’s going to take, to get the fifty or so music tracks of mine encoded into video, so they can be hosted on a media website like YouTube…I’ll do that for the podcast, as I am creating the episodes…But I like for my music, to be performed on it’s own.

Maybe, “Diamond Raw” will move here, also…

Think I’ll go into town before work, today…get a prepaid debit card, and make the purchase after work…The 10 GB should do…Heck, all the media I had at blog.com, amongst all the blogs, was still only scratching the surface [about 3%] of 2 GB…And I had dozens of pieces of audio media, as well as a lot of graphics.

This will make republishing my music, much easier…And it’s time to liven things up around here.

July 10, 2013

Not much to report, except that if you visit my ISD Index page, you’ll find that I’ve got an updated version of The EQF Glossary up.

Oh yes…We are getting very close, to the return of “The Blog That Started It All”…

I’m going to actively start reposting “In Self Defense” here, soon.

– Steve


July 9, 2013

There are a few additions of note…

Look in the sidebar for “On Who’s Coattails”…It’s a new page…

I brought back the “Amazon.com Censorship” page, in the new “Important Issues” section.

I also have opened up the base, for the new “In Self Defense” index page…with links on it that lead nowhere…So don’t bother clicking on them.

Oh yeah!…And I opened up the official page, for the “Our Love Frontier” podcast…Which you probably already noticed…I’ll be refining that, as I get time.

– Steve


June 25, 2013

It’s been a while since I updated this log…

I’ve posted a handful of things, and just got done posting all of these new pages:

About Contacting People

Statement of Intent

In Defense of Newgon

About Being a Pedophile

An Intentional Choice

An Oath of Truth

As to the Media

Bunker Mentality

Distorted Views

Hate Speech and Propaganda

If You Wish To Judge

Life

Me, PJ and AZU

People Fearing MAPs

Sharing Personal Viewpoints

At this point, I think I’m legitimately done authoring and posting pages for a while…I want to focus on re-publishing posts, and the new podcast.

– Steve


May 23, 2013

Believe it or not…counting this “Blog Log”…There is presently 50 posts on this blog [plus thirty some odd pages, currently available for viewing – More to come!]…I’ve been pushing myself quite hard, and I’m going to have to back off a bit…This is really throwing me for a loop…especially at work…I cant keep this pace up.

So, I’m going to take a bit of a break, tonight…Maybe put on a movie…I’ve been watching the Harry Potter series, after the sad news of Richard Griffiths [“Uncle Vernon”] death…He was a damn funny actor…and brought some great stuff to the HP series.

…Guess I’ll watch the rest of “Order of the Phoenix”…

I’ll be back, fairly soon…Maybe tomorrow…

– Steve

P.S. Thank you too all the many, many people reading my blog [stats don’t lie, do they?]…It’s nice to have a robust community of readership…I hope you find my content enriching…It’s wonderful to see, that people are interested.


May 22, 2013

I added five or six links to the OLF Links page…And I’ll be adding more, later…I have a few new pages to put up, also…and if I can remember what I was going to write about, I also had a few more ideas for additional pages.

Right now, I’m focusing on re-publishing my baywords and blog.com archives…the unassigned posts…It’s kind of a rambling, sloppy process…I want to intermix other stuff, also, though I’m not giving precedence to anything…I’ll post some new content, soon.

Oh…and I have a Memorial off to the side, now.

– Steve


May 7, 2013

Sometimes, I wonder if I don’t have way too many post categories for my own good…

Because of the degree of extreme chore it is…I am going to be extremely loose, when it comes to attaching categories to my old blog posts…In fact, I’m considering just attaching the bare minimum to them…As in, an archive designation [Baywords/Blog/Blogspot], and a Sub-Blog designation [or “Unassigned”]…Because it is going to take me forever, to re-read everything…and attempt assigning categories all over again…So, unfortunately…As much work as I’ve put into things, to make them as nice as possible…I’m making an executive decision…and deciding that having the content back online as expediently as possible, is more important than meticulous categorization.

…I really don’t like this, however.

In addition, I also wrote and posted — My Renegade Phase?
…Linked in the “About Steve Diamond” section…

I’m going through my Baywords.com content, which is the first version of “Our Love Frontier”…and I cant help almost being shocked, at all the personal anger which I am running across…I genuinely do not remember it being quite on that level, especially not for “Our Love Frontier”…But, this was a sort of transitional phase, coming off of “In Self Defense”, which was extremely edgy and at times quite emotional writing…It took me a number of years, to kind of mellow out of it…

…And most of this content has been setting in a folder, waiting to be re-posted…out of sight, for several years…I guess, I honestly forgot…just what a whip cracker I was back then…Wow…

You know…society desperately needs a good clubbing upside the head, with reality…and that is where I was at, emotionally and psychologically…Though I’ve not lost touch with this…I have evolved away from it, and decided it was unhealthy to remain there…So, I chose a new direction.

The tone of my earlier content, can be very clashing against what I’ve been focusing on over the last three or so years…Which has been a lot more laid back…and mostly positive and creative.

I still think, there is a lot worth preserving in my old content…including the anger…and the reasons behind the anger…I think those expressions of anger, are something which society should not be allowed to look away from, or deny…That is why, I am reposting them…And I will eventually start reposting “In Self Defense”, also…

Much of it is extremely personal, emotional…dark, even…unlike anything else, I’d previously written…It’s the song of a tortured soul…and the hope of an optimist…It’s the red line, of a cornered animal…It is starkly, the insides of “Me”…It is high time, this collection finally got pieced together, all in one place.


May 6, 2013

I’ve started posting again…

…and I put up the Conditioned Social Structure Vs True Natural Capacity page…

I have more specialized pages to create and put up…but I’m tired, and I’ll do those later.


May 2, 2013

A new post…I also added the “Absolute Zero Unites” link to my Links Page…and I wrote a “Statement of Intent” page, which I’m going to put up tomorrow, maybe…Soon, anyway.

– Steve


May 1, 2013

Happy May! 🙂

Okay…I did a good bit of work, on giving “The Wall” a face lift…and I am much, much happier with what I have now, than with that ugly thing I initially threw together…and I pruned away, a few of the links…Yes, yes…I’ll eventually post something, in regards to those people/groups…but, I doubt I’m going to have more than one or two posts even dealing with some of them. I just thought it was overkill, having all those links…No matter how outrageous the “April’s Law” initiative may be, Petra Luna simply does not warrant that much attention…Judith Reisman “might”, but I’ll make a decision on that, when I come to that bridge.

I have my sorta “first” post up…”Absolute Zero Unites”…and I’m probably going to focus on my Welcome page, next…

Oh!…If anybody reading this is even remotely likely to use the instant messenger linked below, let me know…please…I’m getting to a point, where I’m itching to make the decision…whether I just drop it, or move forward with an option for live IM chatting…I’d like to know if anybody else is interested [and I know other people are viewing this blog…I’ve been getting as many as 16 views, in any given day]…I know it’s not something that’s good to use a lot…But again, I like making myself available live…Unfortunately, tests have shown that a proxy blocks these widgets…

Should they stay?…Should they go?…Any concerns?…

A day or so back, I decided to link the RSS feed to my Amazon.com account at the right…This account is for product reviews…Many, I expect I will also post here…But, I thought I’d offer the RSS feed, on the chance that somebody wanted to subscribe to it.

Aside from this…The OLF Links Page is back up…a tad bit slimmer, from pruning away dead links…but it is there…I plan to build it up, a bit…maybe try to stay on top of it better…


Date: April 24, 2013

I have four, all new pages up…A Statement on RelativismAn Analogy on Faulty Child Sex Abuse ResearchOne Voice Does Not Fit AllLaws Don’t Serve Minorities?

I’ve ran out of new pages to post…So, that focus is done, for now…And I think what is there, is a decent foundation.

I think, I will next focus on my links page…I haven’t decided on what I want to do with the “Amazon.com book purge” page…The GIF I created to bring attention to it, was a bit on the disruptive side…and I was never entirely at ease with it. Maybe, I’ll create a new one…Kind of hate to ignore this issue…even if I don’t believe, having up a web page does much about it.

After this, I’ll focus on the Atheist Media links page, and the accompanying sub-blog…Then I’ll put up the welcome page…

Beyond that, there’s a “Send Me a PM” page…which I have to re-write, and it will be concerned with the IM linked below…

Kinda wanted to start actively blogging today…and even did a little bit of writing…I’ll start soon.


Date: April 22, 2013

Well…Silent Hill Revelation could have been a lot better, and didn’t really match up with the standard of it’s predecessor…but, anyway…

I see nobody has left any feedback over the IM question…So, I went ahead and made a few places to embed an instance of it…If you want to go take a look, please do…If not, then no worries.

On My Blogspot Blog

At the EQF Archive Blog

I’ll get back to working on things, in a day or two…maybe earlier…

-Steve Diamond


Date: April 17, 2013

Looking for feedback, from anyone who cares to offer it…

Should I bother with an Instant Messenger, or a chat room?…

I actually found a decent IM, which I only have one substantial gripe about…It pretty well covers all the same major bases that Meebo hit, though…And since I considered Meebo to be pretty much perfect, I am thinking I want to use this one…It will give me a way, to connect with readers…and old friends…So long as they’re not too spooked, by allowing scripts to run.

I do like the blatantly stated free speech stance, claimed by this IM provider…They’re not a company harping on some “we’ll shut you down based on any reason, or no reason at all”, terms of service clause…You know…The kind which companies lacking backbone and integrity cite, whenever they just want to get rid of any inconvenient people?…Well, this company comes off sounding like unless you’re doing something explicitly illegal, then they don’t want to get involved…I like and appreciate companies like that.

…and I think I have a chat room, which will work fine for small groups…and for a place like this…The kicker, is that I cant embed any of these into this blog, like I would highly prefer…I’ll have to find a place off of this blog, for my IM…The chat room, can actually exist on it’s own…I want to see how it behaves behind a proxy, though…and maybe try a few things…

…Or, maybe I should just forget about it…What do you think?

Is it worthwhile to have some kind of live interaction, connected with this blog?

Well…That’s what I’ve been doing today…opening up accounts, and testing out embeddable Instant Messenger widgets…I miss my Meebo…and liked making myself available, like that…

Anyway, I’m done for today…and I am done working on this for now…maybe for a day or two…I have a copy of “Silent Hill Revelation” that’s been calling to me, all day…Maybe I’ll watch both movies, back to back…Mmmmm…

Date: April 16, 2013

First, I added a new link in the “About Steve Diamond” section, A Right to Sex With Children?

I have four more of these to post…then my blog Links page…and an Atheist Media Links page…and a welcome page…Not sure if I’m going to put up a new Private Message page [like my old Meebo page], but I’m looking into some options…I don’t think I’ve found anything, that quite replaces Meebo [which was bought out, and killed by Google]…

Second, I added a new page to act as an interim “end page”, for “In Self Defense”…This means, when there is not a “next page”, you’ll be taken to this new page when you click on the “Onward to the Next Page” link.

Third, I have three more Sub-Blogs ready to go…

I’ve retired several of these, and not just the ones that dealt with hate groups and mean people…But I’ve still probably got fifteen or so, left to re-fit to WordPress.com…and a few I want to re-work…One or two, I’ve shelved for the time being.

Fourth, I opened up a secondary YouTube account…Just to have it…Plus I got it verified [like the first one], so I can upload videos longer than fifteen minutes in length.

Fifth, I deleted nearly all the test posts which were here…but left a couple of them…and they will remain, as a permanent part of this blog…They’re unique enough.

On other fronts…

Yesterday while perusing a couple of old archives…I retrieved half a dozen or so old pieces of writing of mine, which need to be spellchecked…but I formatted them like my normal posts…They’ll probably end up in “Views from the Vault”…There’s quite a lot more, left to go through…But I’ll revisit each archive…and pick out the more worthy bits, for posting…I’ve finally started on this process, of sorting through my old material.

…So, it’s been a busy couple of days…

I’ve also been creating new header banners, for this blog…Plus, I’ve been writing…and I think I’m going to start posting real soon…A ton of just huge developments has happened in the world, since I went on hiatus back in the summer of 2012…Not that I plan on posting about it all…It just feels like the world has changed, so much.

More Later…

Obama is Absent for His Weekly Address…


Date: April 15, 2013

…Sandy Hook mother replaces Obama for weekly address…


Francine Wheeler lost her son Ben, in the Sandy Hook school shootings…

President Barack decided to have her do his weekly address to the public…

…This causes a lot of mixed and disturbed feelings in me…

Let me borrow something expressed by one commenter…

“the founding fathers warned us about trading freedoms in a crisis”

This is one of the first principles which crossed my mind…You do not debate or pass law, in the immediate shadow of a tragedy like this one…not if you can at all avoid it…The reason for this, is that debates and decisions are not so much reason based as they are emotion driven…and emotions have a way of flaring, when reason gets in their way…Reason can be bashed into silence, under circumstances such as these.

I know there is no simple answer to this issue…and I’ll be the first to say, that I have no answer to it at all…

I am comfortable with people like myself owning military style guns…because I know myself and how I think about guns…Frankly, I hate guns and see them as little more than a necessary evil…I don’t like carrying, or shooting…but I feel tremendously better having a gun available, in the event I need it for something…I am also a military vet, a war vet…and a former military policemen…I am trained and competent, in carrying guns…

…People like me are no problem, here…I’m never going to shoot up people and places…

On the other hand…There are other people, who I am not so comfortable knowing that they collect and stockpile these sorts of weapons…A lot of people in the “survivalist” movement, do kind of scare me…especially the ones with a religion born, predatory sense of superiority…the ones that want to “do god’s will, when armageddon hits”…

Again still…There are people who are mentally ill…And what should their access to guns be?…If you are mentally ill, does this mean they can, or should, take your guns away?…”Mental illness”, is a very shaky matter…According to some people, half or better of the U.S. population can be called “mentally ill”, based upon the DSM…

We better think long and hard on the “mental illness” angle, because after such a law is in place…a majority of U.S. citizens may no longer be able to own a gun, legally…Not the very next day, of course…but gradually, over time…And that is a serious, serious issue…and a very serious problem, in the minds of many of us.

This really does make me wonder, about my own ability to purchase a firearm in the future…

As to the video…I will never be okay with it, watching anybody exploit grieving and devastated people in the manner which Obama is doing here…I think this is just scummy, beyond all words…and I have lost some level of respect for President Obama, for going there.

While my sympathy has gone out to these families all along…There is no way, under any circumstances, that I can accept their stance as objective, reasoned, authoritative or what we need right now…Their impartiality and objectivity, is destroyed…They are far too deeply embroiled in the aftermath, of a recent tragedy…

…And the very last thing I want, or can ever accept as being okay…is someone in that frame of mind, making [strong-arming and brow beating into existence] major decisions which impact upon all of us…That is overstepping boundaries which nobody, no matter how crappy their circumstances, has any right to do.

…This all feels not only so starkly wrong…but so opportunistic…

One tragedy is being exploited, in order to force a confrontation with the armed U.S. population?…I fear, this may be just exactly what is going on…And I do not like one bit, where this appears to be heading…

The Sandy Hook case is a tragedy…But making laws of prohibition for the majority, based upon what a tiny minority of people have done…that is prosecuting everybody, because of the actions of a few.

In close, a brief word…

…Nobody supported or liked what happened to those children, at Sandy Hook…It clearly is not acceptable, that this happened…

…But I still respect the views of people, who are becoming angry over this aftermath…because they, and their gun ownership, are not what is behind the kinds of mass shootings we’ve been experiencing.

I think this has a lot more to do with destabilization of the U.S. population, than anything else…Our larger society, has been utterly raped and gutted by “global economy”…A lot of people are scared, and they have been for years…They cant provide for themselves and their families, anymore…People are psychologically cracking, because they cannot take being under this sort of pressure forever…

If you ask me…this is probably the number one catalyst, in why we are seeing an increase in this sort of behavior…So many of us have had our ability to keep our heads above the water, stripped of us…to say nothing, of a chance to thrive. I think, we have been corralled into mass social failure…A lot of people are scared and angry about it, but who sees any way out of this?

Oprah “[…] rubs unethical foreskin products on her face.”?…


Date: April 13, 2013

…The Latest Oprah Controversy: Protesters Upset Over Skin Cream Endorsement…

…The Latest Oprah Controversy: Protesters Upset Over Skin Cream Endorsement…

Sure…it’s a dumb story, in many regards…but the whole idea that Oprah Winfrey could be rubbing “little boy penis cream” into her face every night, and calling it her “fountain of youth” is just too much to pass up on…

Apparently, the company behind this cream found a way to keep the cells of a severed foreskin from twenty years ago, both alive and reproducing…So, it’s not exactly the controversy which the anti-circumcision group seems to be making it [not that I disagree with their general stance]…but there might be something hypocritical, about anyone against female sexual mutilation using this very same product…

…It exploited one males sexual mutilation, in order to be made…

I’m often amazed, at the various things the wealthy do…and how much they pay for it…I mean, maybe the stuff does work as advertised…but, isn’t there something at least a tad “vampiric” about doing that?…

Urning men and women, on whose book of life Nature has written her new word which sounds so strange to us, bear such storm and stress within them, such ferment and fluctuation, so much complex material having its outlet only in the future; their individualities are so rich and many-sided, and withal so little understood, that it is impossible to characterize them adequately in a few sentences.
