This isn’t so much a “complete” post…But I was watching an exchange on Twitter in this thread, between Daniel G ?@thecoolrydon and Mark Lucius ?@PedofielMark…and I didn’t want to get into a long, deep exchange with anyone tonight…but I was finding it way too painful, to fail making any type of response.
Just a few thoughts…
a) Fighting for a wider range of open options, which would be enjoyed by a wide range of people, is not “fighting for only ones self”.
b) The onus of proof being on us, is all fine and well…except that it is a crime, to openly exhibit just how harmless or beneficial such a relationship is. It is [and we are] given no chance, to prove the worth and nature of these relationships. This is the utter worst of “catch 22’s”. If we don’t have the legal ability to prove this…then we have every right to use any other method of argument, which is useful…even if that amounts to something like thousands of us giving anecdotal evidence. The very research and documentation of these things has been under assault…It is in disarray…It is hobbled and stunted. Don’t blame us that we have to rely on our good nature and creativity, in the absence of a lot of charts, statistics and papers…It’s not our fault.
c) There is definitely a system of “evidence finding”, which skews data…and locks out everybody else, who is inconvenient to the desired conclusion. I was only impressed by the output of this model, when I lacked the knowledge of how it literally functioned.
This “research” is political…It is not academic…and it has no interest, in clarifying the subject matter.
Nobody who has “seen under the hood”, can come away believing that modern “CSA research” [for example] is in any way impartial…that it is not completely bought and owned…or that it functions in the manner, that legitimate academic research is supposed to.
Pull out all the charts and statistics you like…They’re overwhelmingly based on a corrupt model.
