“Lately there’s been a lot of talk about whether Ted Cruz is an actual natural born citizen of the United States and eligible to be president. Donald Trump of course thinks he’s not. Cruz responded by showing his birth certificate. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“For years, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) has been dogged by a backburner controversy about whether he is eligible to serve as President since he was born in Calgary, Alberta Canada in 1970. But since Cruz’s mother was an American citizen, the place of his birth actually is irrelevant to his eligibility.
Yet Cruz’s mother’s name appears on a Canadian government document, obtained by TPM in 2013, that lists Canadian citizens eligible to vote in 1974.”

“People like Takagi who struggle with pedophilic impulses but have never acted on them have been the subject of much media attention. With a paucity of reliable scientific data about their circumstances and no known medical or psychiatric cure, many of these individuals rely strictly on self-control to avoid acting on their urges. Takagi believes there is another option.
Struggling to reconcile his attraction to children with a conviction that they should be protected, Takagi founded Trottla, a company that produces life-like child sex dolls. For more than a decade, Trottla has shipped anatomically-correct imitations of girls as young as five to clients around the world.
“We should accept that there is no way to change someone’s fetishes,” Takagi insisted. “I am helping people express their desires, legally and ethically. It’s not worth living if you have to live with repressed desire.”
Several treatments for pedophilia exist, including cognitive-behavioral therapy and chemical castration, and other interventions intended to suppress urges. A meta-analysis conducted by the Mayo Clinic recently concluded that the treatments “do not change the pedophile’s basic sexual orientation toward children.”
“Just because a person is pedophilically inclined,” [Dr.] Beier concluded, “doesn’t mean he is a danger.”
So much to respond to here…
It’s worth reading the whole article.
I’m not going to offer much comment here…but I would be intrigued to know a few things…
…like the price tag for such an item…and just how life like it honestly is…and whether there has been any legal obstacles, in people purchasing and receiving them.
No…I don’t really want one…In my younger days, I did have a bit of varied experience with sex toys…None of them ever really impressed me…Well…one of them was fun, but didn’t last more than a couple of months…so…if it’s not worth the money, then it’s not impressive.
I gave up on sex toys, many years ago…Child dolls does not really excite me…because it’s just another lifeless thing, which cant share or enjoy the experience.
That is a point which gets lost on so many people…the fact that many pedophiles get excited and aroused, by the sexual excitement, discovery and deep pleasure, experienced by the child him/herself.
Sexuality is not a selfish thing for me…It is critical that whomever I would be with, is having as enjoyable a time [or better] than me…so, if I lack a living reciprocator [a presence which is vital to my own sexual climax], what’s the use?…It’s just rubbing on a lifeless mass of material, and having to clean it up afterwards…No thank you.
…But the fact it exists intrigues me.
I don’t know if these are legal in the U.S…though I can expect, they’d try to limit people’s ability to get them, even if they are legal.
One has to wonder…if they made a porno movie with such a doll…could they be prosecuted for it.

Response to Tom O’Carroll, and sentiments on “coming to an end”…
On this upcoming June 22nd, I will see my ten year anniversary of entering the blogosphere…with all it’s memories and experiences, good and bad.
I’m looking forward to it, and it’s what’s mostly prompted me to get off my behind, and start republishing the content from my first [and possibly most relevant] blog…but, it’s going to be a ton of work, no doubt.
Surveying the whole landscape..I think the best thing for me, is that I never approached this as a “single issue” project…At the bare minimum, I had my atheism to walk along side my BoyLove…And over the years, I evolved into social and human rights issues, which aren’t solely connected to either of those things…but they often effect those things.
I don’t really see myself as a BoyLove writer/speaker…nor an atheist writer/speaker…I’m a decent human being, who cares about this world…and the plight of others…even those who aren’t like me. Because of this…I try to share things which uplift, improve and help people grow as individuals…and I salt in my own thoughts [on many things], along the way.
Evolving has kept me going…because it’s kept the journey fresh…and challenging…Or at least engaging…I think it’s also helped to deflect the notion, that I’m “obsessed with” adult child sexual relations.
It’s frustrating watching you guys from across the pond…and the meddling government, which targets your base freedom of speech.
That is really what happened to Newgon, causing it’s gradual grinding to a halt…The government where it’s original owner lived, made it illegal to have such a website. This kind of interference is serious.
I’m glad to see the revival occurring, where people like us are really starting to dig in and hold our own…
…But like anyone who has been doing this kind of thing for an extended amount of time…I can attest, that you go through phases and periods…where you just don’t know where you are heading…and sometimes, you feel like you are falling out of the drive to do it…Sometimes, it [and everything associated with it] is overwhelming…Sometimes, you feel like you cant do it anymore.
I wrestle with an inevitability…that my eyesight is deteriorating so badly, I don’t know how long I can keep this up…never mind that they will likely start pushing censorship laws [repealing the U.S. Constitution’s first amendment?], in the coming years…And I may lose all contact, with a community I’ve been part of for almost two decades…I wont even know what to do with myself, if that happens…I might end up going crazy in the isolation.
Why am I sharing all of this?…
…Because I understand your state of mind all too well, Tom.
Watching things go…and facing our own departure, is a hard burden in it’s own right.
I would like to take this chance to encourage others out there…If you see meaningful things, which speak to your issues, which are being created by marginalized people…archive copies of it…keep them…share them…Hell…when the creator is gone, republish them…Keep it circulating.
We need to stand as a collective…because no single voice leads forever.
