Can we put our emotional reactions aside?”

Thank you to leonard sisyphus mann, for a heads up on this one.

I offer it here, for visitors to ponder.

I agree, that it’s nice to see level headed people talking about these issues.

The Person I Reported on Twitter is Suspended…


Date: January 13, 2016

Well…

Following up on my post about new Twitter rules

@DarkCypherX was my guinea pig…because they self selected, by quickly hurling a homophobic slur at me upon discovery of my Twitter account.

I never said anything to this person…I merely retweeted a tweet of a friend, and attached it to my #GetHelpPedophilephobes hash tag…and a group of idiots, who lack the sense to just be quiet, started barraging my account with tweets…

…Being the time of day it was, I went to bed…And believe me, I slept well…because I have no concern nor care, for anything these sorts tweet…It’s drivel, bankrupt of substance…and not deserving of my time or attention.

Anyway…I’m pleased to announce that the rule breaker’s account has been suspended! Yay!

I don’t know if this was directly related to my reporting of their homophobic slur…but I don’t at all mind taking credit for it, anyway!

I figured…someone might as well put these fools to productive use…so, I made a guinea pig out of one of them…and I encourage others out there, if they see these troublemakers doing their usual things…just report them to @Support.

Principle: Don’t Make Something Out Of “X” That It Is Not…

This selection from “In Self Defense: The Life and Times of An Atheist BoyLover…Memoirs and Ethos”, has been narrated by Rocco White. Please enjoy the listen, or read along if you like…or need to.


One of my fundamental principles you will see influencing both my writing and my speaking…is that of encouraging people to be pragmatic…encouraging them to not blow things out of context, or create a distortion of the issue at hand.

It only serves to make things worse, when people are not even objectively honest about the issue in front of them. Also, we tend to create problems that never would have otherwise existed, when we don’t approach things with a level head.

There is a lot of unnecessary conflict and suffering in this world…because there is so much lack of honesty…lack of empathy…lack of taking things in stride…lack of an allowance to let others be human.

In other words…reject social stigma…and don’t go crazy over something, when you have the bare minimal amount of information about it [the event, instance, item, etc.], and you only have a brief list of words, euphemisms and sentiments put in front of you to describe it.

The reality of the individual issue at hand, is quite likely far more tame and empathetic, than where your [likely conditioned] imagination is probable to take you.

I employ this principle across the board…Which I am positive has gotten me branded an “advocate” of things like incest, modern day sex between children and adults…even bestiality.

…I defy anyone, however, to cite me [Note: bastardized, uncited and altered “quotations” on smear sites do not count.], where I have actively encouraged anyone to engage in these activities…or where I have actively promoted people engaging in them.

My interest in exploring these issues over the years…has been of a nature that is philosophical…of personal, self reflection and exploration…of trying to guide broader society away from the edge of a cliff…and hopefully, to help others who are like myself to find and develop a personal context, in which to understand how they fit into this world [so they can better deal with it]. It’s never been based out of any notion, that I’m going to get sexual liberation…or that I’m giving permission to others, to seek out and do these things.

I’m not an actual advocate for incest…nor for bestiality…nor do I advocate that adults have sex with minors…

…I’m just a realist…and understand that with as many billions of people on this planet, these things are happening in this world…at least every here and there. We cant honestly stop it…It is here…It is with us…It will always be with us.

It serves no good purpose distorting the reality of these issues, by skewing how we talk about them.

Full acknowledgement of all discernable factors, should always be the rule.
