01) Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger says website has been ‘taken over by trolls’
“Wikipedia’s co-founder has said that mob rule and anti-elitism ruined the website he helped set up leading to “inmates running the asylum”.
Larry Sanger said that he walked away from the internet phenomenon just one year after it began life in 2001 because it quickly became “taken over by trolls”.
“Wikipedia never solved the problem of how to organize itself in a way that didn’t lead to mob rule,” the Ohio-based internet project developer told Vice.com. “On the one hand, it isn’t a mob at all. It’s highly organized and structured and there’s a lot of rules, so it seems like the very opposite of that, right?
“But on the other hand, the way that the community is organized isn’t codified or decided upon in any type of constitutional way. So there might be some people who selectively apply rules according to positions that other people take on their pet issues. And that’s inherently unfair, right?
Because there wasn’t anyone who was really leading the project, including Jimmy Wales—he just sort of let the thing run itself after I left—there needed to be a way for new ideas to be proposed and voted on by the community.”
All you need is a nasty jerk who wants to start and propagate trouble…and participation on Wikipedia becomes an insane exercise in futility.
01) Loose Women call for castration as punishment for paedophiles
“Fellow panellist Andrea McLean, 46, agreed with Robson, adding: “To me somehow making a robot doll is making it acceptable to have those thoughts.”
…Here we have a woman who would ostracize us all to an island [or force castration on us]…telling us what we cannot think or say…or do with an non-living sex toy, while thinking certain thoughts.
That is hyper control…hyper manipulation…It is unreasonable.
“Moore likened paedophilia to cancer, explaining that there are many different forms of the disease with no singular antidote.”
Oh good grief!…
…We get compared to a horrible disease, with epidemic levels of fatality every year?…
…How is that for a prime example of dehumanization?
Please, please, please get a grip on reality…please!
“It’s a really tricky thing…because you have the predatory paedophile, who will quite often murder the child.
“Then you have other types of paedophile who think they are in love with the child and the child is in love with them.
“You’re dealing with all sorts of different levels here and it is difficult to treat or to ‘cure’.
“It’s a sickness, an illness, it’s a mental illness.”
1) Pedophiles murdering children is ultra rare…I don’t know where she is coming up with this “quite often murder the child”, stuff. The known facts don’t support this.
2) The “You don’t know what love is”, paradigm. They think they own love [the concept and the experience], and that they can dictate who [and what circumstance] is worthy of being called love.
3) They think this is a mental illness, in need of cure [as though there were one].
Let me expound, briefly, on the third point…
I contest the idea, that pedophilia [like any other form of attraction, personal bonding, intimacy, shared experiences, etc.], is a mental illness.
Looking at the entire range of what pedophiles [actual pedophiles, not everybody and anybody who does any sexual thing with a child or teenager] generally experience [or get associated with]…the only things I would look at and raise alarm over…are those that show an active, substantive intent to brutalize a child [in any way]…attempted anal sex on a child [adult penetrating child]…forced oral sex…the forced participation in a sexual relationship.
…But those are all criminal acts, anyway…and they are practices of a sociopathic, cruel character…one which lacks all respect for the child.
That last point is key…because those things are not the “bread n butter” of pedophilia…Valuing and respecting the autonomy of the child, is vital.
Attractions are not a mental illness…even actions [no matter their nature], are not mental illness…We as a society merely attempt to classify things as “mentally healthy”, or “mentally unhealthy”…based largely on phobia of the thing itself…and based out of social friction, amongst different social groups.
Having a thought…or an attraction…even talking about it openly…that is not a mental illness.
Often times, through out history, and until this day…branding of “mental illness” is used, as an attempt to disenfranchise entire groups socially…and even to imprison them…Anything to keep them from attaining a respected social standing.
This, in my opinion…is exactly what has been happening to Minor Attracted [M.A.] people, today.
…We get branded with this “mental illness” paradigm [along with heinous stereotypes]…while almost never being judged on what we deserve to be judged by…our personal lifestyle, and our factual conduct.
When this type of behavior is being used to quash “pedophiles”…this is politics which have nothing to do with reality…it is institutionalized hate and phobia. It’s just there and happening, so that people who’ve been conditioned to fear us, can maliciously control us and keep us down.
“Mental illness” is subjective…and highly political.
You think pedophilia is a mental illness?….prove it!
…Not even the people behind the DSM, have ever been so bold as to make such an assertion.
