“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, ridiculed by U.S. President Donald Trump as “Pocahontas” for claiming Native American heritage, hit back on Monday with DNA evidence she said supported her assertion, a possible preview of a bare-knuckles presidential campaign in 2020.
The Massachusetts lawmaker, known as a liberal firebrand in her party, said last month she would take a “hard look” at running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Trump in 2020. She and Trump clashed frequently through the 2016 presidential campaign and Trump has cast aspersions on her claim to Native American ancestry.
“When I decided to run for Senate in 2012, I never thought that my family’s Native American heritage would come under attack and my dead parents would be called liars,” she said in a statement on Monday.
“And I never expected the president of the United States to use my family’s story as a racist political joke,” she said.
Trump taunted Warren over the issue at a July rally in Montana.
“I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian,” he said. “I have a feeling she will say ‘no.’”
Warren reminded the president on Monday of his promise. “Please send the check to the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center,” she said on Twitter.
When asked about the DNA test, Trump said: “Who cares?” Then he denied making the comment, as he left Washington to visit hurricane-stricken areas in Florida and Georgia.
Warren provided the DNA test results in a statement, showing the lineage goes back six to 10 generations.”
My great grandmother was a full blooded Native American…I would tell you the nation [or, nations, as it was two consolidated nations on one reservation]…but, that’s a bit too easy to search…and pin me down to a geographical area.
I am one eighth Native American…
I never knew my great grandmother [the full blood]…nor her son, who was my grandfather…I only knew his children…my father, his brothers and sisters.
Lots of people know their great grandparents…but this was a very old, wide spanning family…This set of great grandparents did their living during the 1800’s, into the early 1900’s…They were gone many decades before I was born…not even my dad, aunts and uncles directly knew them.
So…my own Native American heritage is kind of severed…despite that it’s not very far back, in generations.
I’ve never been to any official tribal doings…and I’m not entirely sure how welcome I’d be…
…Though I tend to get along quite well, with other Native Americans I regularly happen across, who don’t live on one of the reservations.
I don’t get what the ruckus is…
…Maybe Warrens heritage shouldn’t be the spectacle it has become…but, still…I don’t see any justification in mocking her over it.

“The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), defines consent as “an agreement between participants to engage in sexual activity.” However, the definition goes on to state that there are “many, many ways to give consent,” and that while consent “doesn’t have to be verbal, verbally agreeing to different sexual activities” can help sexual partners to set boundaries. Additionally, Planned Parenthood defines consent as “when a person freely agrees to something,” but then goes on to further define the term as a “a clear, happy, excited ‘yes!'” Most notably, what these definitions do not encompass are the complexities of giving and receiving communicating consent — the gray areas.
In an episode of VICE’s HBO Special Report, which aired on Sept. 29, 2018 and is aptly named “Consent,” sexologist and sexpert Michelle Hope spoke with a panel of millennials about the gray areas. Hope read out a sexual scenario and each panelist stated whether on not they considered the act to be consensual. A particular scenario, which painted a woman performing oral sex on a man — whom she had met and had sex with the night before — while he was sleeping, caused a stir amongst panelists and audience members alike. Was their interaction consensual? A disagreement arose in the room, the tension palpable. One thing grew clear: defining consent does not provide a one-size-fits all solution for giving consent in real-life circumstances. But why is it so confusing to understand?
In recent weeks, there has been an outpouring of discussion among American women about consent, what it means to give it, to not give it, to be ignored, and to have your agency for consent taken away. Our society teaches women from a young age about giving their consent, but it does not place the same responsibility on teaching men how to properly ask for it.”
There is to much covered here, for me to be thorough…but let me talk about one issue, anyway…
Is it okay to suck/lick/kiss someone on their body, as they sleep?…
…This varies with the individual.
Some people are extremely happy to experience sexual contact, and they are open to it at nearly any opportunity…plus, they want their partner to be happy…
…These sorts of people can have a standing understanding of open consent…as in, their partner is welcome to physically move in, at their own discretion…or at will…and they will normally be receptive to it.
You can also have people who don’t want that going on, while they are unconscious…
This is all a “well…duh!”, kind of thing…
…But it cant be underappreciated…that the primary factor rests in your partners sexual swagger…and their sexual sensibilities…
It’s most important to know these things about your partner…
When you do…you have an understanding of what is okay.
“Society has groomed both men and women, not to talk appropriately about sex.”
…Of course, you cannot leave out children and youth…because that is where the anti-sexual grooming begins…That is where society first drops the ball.
If they aren’t talking about and approaching sex accurately and respectfully as adults…they weren’t doing it as children and youth, either…That foundation was never set.
This is one reason of many, why you cannot treat children and youth as if they were alien from sex…it comes back to haunt us, later.
Affirmative Consent Policies:
…aka…verbalizing permission for every single advancement of the encounter…can I kiss you?…can I touch you there?…can I take off that?…can I lick you there?…etc, etc…
These are discussions one should have, prior to starting a sexual encounter…or sexual relationship.
People can establish even non-verbal cues, to communicate acceptance or rejection.

[Dead Link] 01) Jerry Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy Partly Explains Why Our Sexuality is Illegal
Thanks to feinmann0!
“So, as for me personally, I had simply been an anti-Feminist years before I realized what Male Sexualism is and that I am one, and will continue to be anti-Feminist regardless of whatever happens with this Male Sexualism project. Surely, I’m not alone feeling this sentiment; all the “core” Male Sexualists are anti-Feminists.
And yet, we constantly have to deal with the “MAP community” and with other related communities who have zero interest in anti-Feminism, and whose only beef with Feminism – if, indeed, there even is one at all – is that it prevents them from “platonically cuddling with little boys” or whatever it is these people want to do. See, the boy lovers are trying to have their “LGBTP” thing (lol – it’s never gonna happen), while the girl lovers are often much worse manginas than some of our enemies! Honestly, if you tell me, “Women past age 13 do not sexually attract me at all,” I’m going to assume that you’re fucked up and a liability rather than an asset.
By the way, I notice that I get along easier with regular homos than with pedo homos, since the functionality of the regular homos is much superior to that of the pedo ones, which lends empirical credence to the observation that clinical pedos really are neurologically messed up.’
A clear example of Tom Grauer shooting himself in the foot by alienating many who might otherwise sympathise with, and support, his male sexualism project, doubtless including several who occasionally comment on his blog.
His continual narrowing of the eligibility of a male sexualist will eventually result in a movement containing one person: Tom Grauer. This strategy is not without risk; he has already been noticed elsewhere: renegadetribune.com/tom-grauer-jewish-leader-paedophile-movement/ “
I didn’t know Tom was blogging, again.
It’s always felt to me, like he was trying to tap into the MAP community, and what we have already established…not the other way around.
I’m sure many MAPs have asked what Tom brings to the table, that we don’t already have…A lot of us have been doing what he does [in a general sense], far longer…and without the over the top dogma…
To many blog deletions and crazy reactions, have really given his credibility a beating.
In addition…you cant just show up out of nowhere, declare yourself “our leader”, and expect people to follow…
I have yet to see Tom earn his standing…Sure, he has had some amusing blogs…but, seriously…It takes deep dedication, long term, in order to build reputation and status.
Bottom line for me…
…Some of what Tom espouses, is critically irreconcilable with some of my core values…as a humanist…even just as a decent human being.
…I won’t betray my own values, just because somebody claims I might get laid if I do…I’m a far deeper human being than that…My life is nuanced…This world is nuanced…
…I’ve never had a problem with feminism…
…I have a problem with asshole feminists…In the same way I have a problem with assholes of any arena.
I’ve given Tom at least a few comments on his blog…at least one, was a fine piece of writing…original, even…which got orphaned, after he deleted his blog…
…I don’t like these kinds of games, nor the wasting of my time and energy…especially not when it’s given in good faith…Hence, I’m in no hurry to rush back.
Tom can say what he likes…But it just comes off as sad jabs, at people who largely aren’t even paying attention to him.

“last interview before blackout”
“Child Pornography is not interesting, or credible”?…
What a strange comment, in response to the question of what he will do should he regain his freedom.
Did anyone even ask if Wikileaks would post child porn, as a bold move/response to everything?
Of course…to do such, would absolutely be a valid pursuit in free speech, human rights, fighting ignorance and combating government censorship.
…But Julian doesn’t like pedophiles, does he?
…Even he comes up with a lame excuse to back out…
…This is quite possibly the single most important thing to liberate, at this moment in human history.
This happens at about 3:40.
I don’t expect anybody to do anything, that I am not willing to do myself…I don’t judge them for such a decision…
…But the admission does lay bare, what their true commitment to free speech and liberation is.
Assange and his cohorts have always been way overrated.
