Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1900…


……
….

Date: April 25, 2016

If a small amount of boy nudity is compromising for you, or otherwise bothers you, then don’t watch this movie.

01) 1900


“20th Century Italy provides the backdrop for class struggle in this dramatic epic.

Set in the countryside of the Province of Emilia in Italy, the story of two men, one a bastard born into a family of farm workers, the other an heir to a wealthy family of landowners.”

Note that this was legally published by it’s copyright owner, for free viewing, on Paramount Pictures official YouTube channel…a rather awesome channel…Lots of great movies there…in their entirety.

I never much thought that big Hollywood companies would finally get on board, and start being generous with their content, like this…And I’m pleased to see this, hopefully trend, take off.

There is a small bit of very natural nudity in this movie…and some controversial subject matter…but, nothing that any level headed person would get bent out of shape over.

All in all…it’s a great [if very, very long] movie…and some BoyLovers have considered this to be a long time addition, to their movie boy watch lists…because the two main characters are young boys, for the beginning of this movie…stretching well into the movie.

Alice Dreger: Is anatomy destiny?…


Date: April 25, 2016

01) Alice Dreger: Is anatomy destiny?

02) On YouTube


“Alice Dreger works with people at the edge of anatomy, such as conjoined twins and intersexed people. In her observation, it’s often a fuzzy line between male and female, among other anatomical distinctions. Which brings up a huge question: Why do we let our anatomy determine our fate?”

I tend to wonder…with the “more intensive sense” of women to perceive and protect the most vulnerable amongst us…does this also tend to come with heightened levels of aggression, and closed minded zealotry?…Does it have it’s own [less than constructive] pathology, which gets aimed at those deemed “undesirable”?

…What is the balance?…Is there one?

At times…I’ve perceived that many people get blinded by their sense…that they have some “higher cause”, taking precedence over other people and groups…and over those people’s ability to attain what they need in life.

…I’ve seen the aggression and [sometimes vicious] conflict that results.

To me…self appointed “protectors” being necessary, and acting decently…is more a matter of spin, than a matter of objective truth.

A Review of the Literature on Sexual Assault Perpetrator Characteristics and Behaviors…

01) A Review of the Literature on Sexual Assault Perpetrator Characteristics and Behaviors

02) Report Download [PDF]

“Sexual assault continues to be a pervasive problem, both for society in general and within the military community. To assist the Air Force in its continued efforts to combat sexual assault within its ranks, we reviewed the existing empirical literature on the characteristics and behaviors of adult perpetrators who commit sexual assault against other adults. Our search was not limited to studies of military populations. While a vast majority of the existing literature has focused on sole male perpetrators who assault female victims, we identified some research on other types of perpetrators, including female sexual assault perpetrators, men who perpetrate assault against other men, and perpetrators who participate in group sexual assault. This body of research indicates that adult perpetrators are diverse in terms of their demographics, background characteristics, and motivations. Moreover, research indicates that sexual assault perpetration is likely influenced by a combination of factors, including an individual’s developmental and family history; his or her personality, including attitudes/cognitions; and environmental factors, including peer attitudes and alcohol consumption. The complexity of factors that influence sexual assault perpetration and the multiple pathways that lead to an attack make it difficult to predict whether an individual is prone to commit sexual assault. While predicting sexual assault perpetration is problematic, we identified a number of factors related to perpetration that may be relevant for intervention efforts and offer recommendations for the Air Force.”

A report done for a branch of the military…but interesting, none the less.

Congressman Mocks LGBTQ Community…


Date: April 24, 2016

01) Congressman Mocks LGBTQ Community


“Congressman Louie Gohmert is under the impression that North Carolina is doing the right thing with its anti-LGBTQ law. He thinks it will stop men from pretending to be transgendered, so that they can record women in the shower. John Iadarola, Wes Clark Jr., and Elliot Hill (The Lip TV), hosts of The Young Turks discuss.”

Man Thinks He Can Reverse Same-Sex Marriage by Fighting to Marry His Laptop…


Date: April 24, 2016

01) Man Thinks He Can Reverse Same-Sex Marriage by Fighting to Marry His Laptop

“Chris Sevier has filed a lawsuit against the Harris County district clerk, Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton for denying him the right to marry his Mac because he is trying to make a pretty cruel argument. He is trying to prove that, essentially, marriage between the members of a same-sex couple can be equated to marriage between a man and a machine. He is trying to prove that, under Obergefell v. Hodges, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case that legalized same-sex marriage, people are now allowed to do morally disgusting things like marry whomever they are attracted to, whether that be inanimate objects or members of the same gender. Essentially, he is trying to give courts an ultimatum: Agree that this is what they have done and allow him to make vows to a piece of expensive chrome, or realize that this is morally wrong and undo Obergefell.”

I say…let him get married to a toaster, if he likes.

Who’s it going to hurt?…

…Of course…if he ever finds someone [a human, presumably] willing to marry him in the future, do make certain that he goes through the proper divorce procedures, before he can re-wed…hires a lawyer…pays the court fees…pays alimony…

…Hey…he want’s to be a massive jerk…”karma”, right?…Give him what he wants, complete with all the downsides of it.

…Who are we all to stand in the way of love?…Good times!…

As Time Goes By: Becoming ‘Desensitized’ and ‘Normalizing’ Pedophilia? (Narrated)…


……
….

Date: April 23, 2016

@enderphile1 is one of the MAPs on Twitter, who more vigorously interacts with non-MAPs. Out of all the MAPs I follow and keep on a list, Ender is amongst the most consistent to actively appear…and he’s virtually always in an exchange with a hostile [or at least non-accepting] non-MAP. I find these exchanges are quite fertile ground, for a lot of important discussion…The following, is taken from one such exchange.


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.


571_As_Time_Goes_By

I am a Minor Attracted Person…a pedophile [one attracted to prepubescent people], to be specific…though I can have hebephilic and ephebophilic leanings also, in a distant and secondary manner.

I’m also close enough to the age of 50 years, to where I am comfortable telling people I’m “half a century old”…A point made, to establish I have a long track record with living this life…and with walking this path…I know it very intimately…And I know where it differs from common, public rhetoric.

“Normalizing” and “desensitizing” repeatedly come up, in the more coherent exchanges with non-MAPs…specifically, the charge that we MAPs are “desensitizing” ourselves, and “normalizing” the concept of “who we are”…and “what we want”…

While I understand it can be something of a rabbit hole, calling some things “normal” when we don’t know exactly how common they [or aspects about them] are…”normalizing” is considerably removed from that, because it implies you’re trying to make something “normal”…something that, theoretically, is abnormal…Hence, it’s the pursuit…and not the social status, of something.

I can understand how non-MAPs could think, that MAPs trying to educate them on the realities of MAPs and MAP issues, is an attempt to culturally normalize something…because non-MAPs don’t typically live with it, or understand it’s prevalence…Thing is, though…if all this already exists under the surface [and, yes, it does]…then how are we “normalizing” this, when it is already there?…By definition, it’s already a normal aspect of human culture…It’s just that people are ignorant about it.

Truth be told…many people throw out these kinds of arguments [“normalizing” and “desensitizing”]…because they’re uncomfortable, with seeing the way things honestly are…They don’t want to know…They believe they already know, all there is to know…They build this psychological wall, attempting to divide what they think is “normal” and “abnormal”…It’s largely a blind pursuit.

…Just because you don’t see and experience something firsthand, does not make that thing abnormal…And when it comes to MAPs…people who have been threatened, shamed, stigmatized and pushed so far underground, that we are forced to be invisible just to survive [and living this way from childhood onward]…a perceptive mind would think, we need to be most careful in recognizing that perception of MAP presence [and MAP behavior] is highly skewed, do to social pressures…and not reflective of objective examination.

…Non-MAPs think we are abnormal, and out in the extreme freak fringe…primarily because we MAPs have been culturally conditioned, to remain out of public sight…for fear of extreme consequence, if we don’t…And this state of things, greatly distorts public perception on how things actually are.

…To what exact extent, I cannot say…None of us can, really…not until we break the glass ceiling, and bring MAPs out into the open, where they can be legitimately seen and studied, on a mass scale.

In the absence of this…many people run rampant, with rhetoric, bile and violent threats aimed at MAPs…and in this self asserting, habitually re-affirming bubble, hostile towards dissent…MAPs are branded with the worst stereotype imaginable…And one which isn’t even valid.

I put this forward as a simple exercise in thought and reason…

…At what point in time do you suppose…that a MAP “becomes desensitized” [or “normalized”] to the feelings, and the biological process taking place beneath their own skin?

…If things have always been this way, since as far back as one’s earliest sexual pangs…when was it ever not normal for this person?…How do they “desensitize”, when this has always been an innate part of their senses?

Personally…I’ve had a relatively long lifetime of living this path…Being a MAP is not something I’ve ever had to convince myself of…It’s just always been there…It’s not a question of whether I wanted it to be, or not…And, no…I have not wanted the social conflict, nor the decades of social abuse…I haven’t wanted being pushed so far beyond my limits, that standing up and fighting back was all I believed I could do…

…But this is me…This is my life…And it’s the life of countless others…It’s worth knowing, understanding and defending.

Should we kill ourselves?…


……

Date: April 23, 2016

01) Should we kill ourselves?

“I can’t even explore if I am good with love, nor even experience a relationship because somehow somewhere people have decided that we are not allowed to question nor explore our love lives if we are pedophiles.

Why carry on living if there are people who want to spoil your party? I want to love a boy and I want a boy to love me, but I am not allowed to. Why do we accept that people tell us what to do? Then what is use of living anymore if we are told that we can’t live the way we are born to live?”

Some believe that life is really about the struggle…not about getting what we want…but just carrying on, and passing on what useful things we can.

This is, to my mind, the only way that we truly live on…and if we pass nothing on…then we simply cease, and might as well have never been born.

Every era of time needs someone to push back, and fight…I think, we are amongst todays “chosen people”, in that regard.

It’s not a happy road…but it is a critical one.

We don’t get to be happy, in our natural lives…But we do get to be very bright flames in the dark…

…We get to do, what virtually nobody else gets to do…

…We get to be pioneers…We get to cut the paths, on which the roads will be built…through which the insurmountable will fall.

Myself…that’s something I can live for.
