Jeremy Malcolm: Experts, Police, and Vigilantes Face Off Over Pedophiles on Twitter…

01) Experts, Police, and Vigilantes Face Off Over Pedophiles on Twitter

“whenever a new measure to censor the Internet is proposed, it will be justified as being targeted at the online activities of either terrorists, or pedophiles. This justification is used so often, because it’s so effective. Nobody wants to be heard speaking up for the rights of either of these hated and feared groups.

Indeed, in order to stave off the threat of broader censorship, free speech activists are sometimes first in line to argue for the censorship of extremist material. It says a lot that the new Chair of the Internet Watch Foundation, which facilitates ISP-level blocking of child abuse imagery online, is the former head of free speech group Article 19.

So it was that Twitter’s suspension of the accounts of non-offending pedophiles last month flew under the radar for most Internet activists and free speech advocates. Although non-offending pedophiles strongly oppose child abuse imagery and adult-child sex, activists were no more inclined to defend them against Twitter’s actions than they were to defend the Nazis and alt-right hate groups whose accounts Twitter also purged.

But there’s one group that does stand against Twitter’s suspension of the accounts of these prominent online pedophiles —and it’s not who you might expect. It’s child protection workers, who together with more than twenty international clinical and forensic psychologists, sexologists, sociologists and other experts, this week sent an open letter to Twitter stating:

In our professional opinions, terminating the accounts of non-offending, anti-contact MAPs [Minor-Attracted Persons] is likely to result in the opposite effect of that which Twitter may expect or intend. Rather than reducing the incidence of child sexual abuse, if anything it increases the risk that some pedophiles will be unable to obtain the peer or professional support that they may need in order to avoid offending behaviour. It is also likely to increase the stigma and isolation associated with pedophilia and thereby increase the likelihood of some MAPs acting on their sexual feelings.”

01) We Should Call Ourselves “Male Sexualists” Because The Alternatives Suck Even More [Dead Link]

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.

Not everything we do is intended to be specifically for outsiders.

This is an important nuance, because pedophile issues, hebephile issues and ephebophile issues, are often times unique…and our communities need a language to communicate amongst ourselves…as well as to understand ourselves with.

This type of communication [and self introspect] has no concern, with how the outside world thinks about us…and it shouldn’t.

These are our issues…not theirs…These are our identities to own, live with and flesh out…not theirs…

Being a pedophile, hebephile or ephebophile, is nothing to be ashamed over…And outsiders who fail to judge an individual based upon their ethical conduct, have nothing of relevance to say about this.

This fight is not about the labels we use to identify ourselves…

…The fight is over how whatever lexicon is being used to reference us, is being dominated, exploited and corrupted, for the end goal of unjustly ruining people [individuals and entire groups].

Abandoning, forfeiting and retreating from any label we use, will not confront, nor overcome, this problem…And it’s a meaningless treadmill, to keep renaming ourselves.

Bad will actors will always be there, to point out that you are not adequately frothing out the mouth over “whatever”…and the new identity will be dragged back to square one.

When bad will actors are unjustly clubbing you over the head…the answer is to take that club away from them [expose them for what they are]…not allow them to keep performing the same manipulations, over and over and over.

The primary problem with what society at large might call “sex trash” minorities, is an utter lack of organized direction and unity, amongst those minorities.

We are walked all over, because of a very broad lack of vision and will amongst our own kind, to change the fact that people are walking all over us.

Until we confront and fix this…no amount of name changing is going to help.

I proudly acknowledge that I am a pedophile…because, a vast swath of the population expects me to apologize for it…And that’s a major, major problem…My pedophilia is one of the most beautiful parts of me…I will never apologize for it…I will celebrate it…and talk about it accordingly.

Nobody will ever get away with attacking me, for what makes me such a spectacular human being.

I don’t worry so much about what outsiders say…They are ignorant…I concern myself with speaking and finding the truth, and sharing it with others.

I will start to concern myself with broader public relations, when the “sex trash” minorities finally find their legs, stand up in united large numbers…and start putting muscle behind their own humanity.

I’m happy to work towards that day…but it will never come, if our kinds never realize they belong in this world, as they are.

The Walking Dead: Carl’s Going to Die…


Date: January 19, 2018

01) Andrew Lincoln Says “All Bets Are Off” After Carl’s Death

“The Walking Dead has always been notorious for killing off major characters. Although the deaths of Glenn, Hershel, and Abraham were shocking, fans have always assumed the main main cast like Rick, Michonne, and Carl were safe. But when it was revealed that Carl would die in the show (more specifically during The Mid-Season Premiere on February 25th), everyone’s plot armor seemed to vanish.”

I’m not sure what everyone is so shocked over, as Chandler did get accepted into a university last year…The writing was on the wall, that he would be getting written out of the show, so long as the show was to continue…

I guess, it makes most sense to kill off the Carl character…

…But this is going to suck…because it’s Carl.

Yes…there’s plenty else going on, without him…but, seriously…I’ve enjoyed watching Chandler all these years…even when his relevance to the plot was low…

The show wont be the same without him.

Hopefully…we will get a new, young, cute boy, who sticks around for several seasons.
