Feminism & Rape: Belief Without Evidence…

Date: December 13, 2014

01) LINK


“In the wake of Rolling Stone’s University of Virginia rape debacle, we should remember that an eye-witness account alone, without any corroborating evidence, should not be enough to convince us of anything. Unfortunately, some have taken this opportunity to tell us all that critical thinking and skepticism should not be applied to rape cases.

Thanks hyacinth…


Date: November 18, 2014

01) Just to throw something else out

I see that our favorite creepy sociopath doesn’t like that my participation [on BoyChat] is so…limited…

…Maybe, they wanted to get into a drag down, bare knuckles, bloody fight?…They never did recover, after I called them a douchebag and an asshole…And maybe they weren’t expecting that, coming from me…but I get fed up with the chronic B.S., too…

Never did apologize…but then, when you could replace 99.999% of everything creepy sociopath posts on these boards, with a big graphic of a hand flipping the middle finger [because it sums everything up so perfectly]…I figure, nobody owes this miserable, abusive dead weight an apology.

…And I cannot respect anyone, who spends nearly all of their time here, relentlessly baffling with bullshit [Thanks Sherry!…I’m stealing that one!]…

I don’t have the time, energy or inclination to be here all the time…and I sure as hell an not going to spend my time, wasting it being dragged down dizzy rabbit [rat?] holes by any creepy sociopath, with the integrity of a blood sucking tick.

…Hence, no…I don’t go round-n-round with anybody here…just express my mind, and be off to what is next.

…”Above the fray”…Ha!…Right…More of mouthy sociopaths conjecture…Someone who never even began to understand me, but thought nothing of making up whatever they felt like, and saying it about me…Sound familiar?…It should, because that is creepy sociopath’s main playbook move…It is what they do to the majority of people around here.

They like to bully and run off the very people, who are good for these boards…and then pretend to be oblivious to it all, when anybody actually holds them accountable.

You’re correct, hyacinth…creepy sociopath is nothing but a cowardly troublemaker, sabotaging these resources…They rightly should have been banned from these boards permanently, years ago.

I see they’ve desecrated this board again, with their indefensible, mouthy arrogance and lies…

Creepy sociopath rides again…BoyChat suffers the relentless abuse…

…What we need today…is the old-fashioned cogging, that used to keep this place at least useable and balanced, without allowing anyone to run rampant and unchecked.

I miss those days terribly.

An 8 Year Old’s Reaction To His Mother Telling Him She Is An Atheist…


Date: November 21, 2013

01) An 8 Year Old’s Reaction To His Mother Telling Him She Is An Atheist


“The mother in this video is picking up her son from church. Christian, the boy, goes almost every Sunday and Wednesday and he has done so since birth. His mother works on Sunday and Wednesday nights so he goes to church with his grandfather. The mother’s family is extremely religious, she obviously is not.

She didn’t expect her son to be almost brought almost to tears because she told him she didn’t believe in God anymore. The mother hasn’t told her father she is an atheist and she can’t say to him not to take the kid to church because he is already going and she can not afford a baby sitter.

The reason why the child is called Christian is because of a preference for that name expressed by his father.

She explained that Christian watches cartoons and videos on youtube, they read books on science from the library but he doesn’t believe we evolved from primates. She originally posted this video because she didn’t know how to fix the damage that has been done. He is in second grade in public school and they don’t even have science class yet. Christian sincerely thinks his mother is going to hell because she doesn’t go to church with him.

The woman in the video only recently decided she is an atheist . She doesn’t think it is right to tell him he can’t go to church because she doesn’t believe in a god. She went to Christian school her entire childhood so she does not have a science background. At college, she failed Biology twice before finally receiving a C and she still doesn’t fully understand the concept of Evolution. She however feels she knows enough to determine that it makes more sense than creation. Her problem is that she doesn’t know how to explain it to him and has trouble explaining to her song why she doesn’t believe anymore.

She originally posted the video because she wanted advice on how to deal with the situation and answers to his questions. She didn’t believe so many people would see it.”

Hard situation…It’s not the kid’s fault.

If dad and the grandparents immerse him into that type of atmosphere…it’s just something you have to deal with.

One idea, is that you might try to draw comparisons between your child pretend playing with friends, and what happens within the walls of a church…Start teaching them about social customs and rituals…symbolism…how a lot of it is about not so much literal reality, as gesture.

Income Inequality Targeted By Incoming Fed Chair…


Date: Nov 15, 2013

01) Income Inequality Targeted By Incoming Fed Chair


“At her Senate confirmation hearing on Thursday, Janet Yellen, the nominee to replace Ben Bernanke as chair of the Federal Reserve after he steps down from his current term, discussed the rising trend of income inequality and the threat it poses to the economy.

“This is a very serious problem, it’s not a new problem, it’s a problem that really goes back to the 1980s, in which we have seen a huge rise in income inequality… For many, many years the middle and those below the middle [have been] actually losing absolutely. And frankly a disproportionate share of the gains, it’s not that we haven’t had pretty strong productivity growth for much of this time in the country, but a disproportionate share of those gains have gone to the top ten percent and even the top one percent. So this is an extremely difficult and to my mind very worrisome problem.”

She noted that there are many causes for rising income inequality, pointing to technology, globalization, and the decline of unions.”* Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz, John Iadarola and Wes Clark Jr break it down on The Young Turks.

In 2019…I am back posting this video…and, yes…politicians are mostly still sitting on their arses…dragging their feet…and trying to keep this status in place, as things have gotten obscenely worse…

This exact same problem festers on.

Are They Now After “The Rest”?…


Date: March 4, 2013

01) Troops Ordered To Kill All Americans Who Do Not Turn In Guns

To be clear…I do not have much stomach for Alex Jones, and do not consider him to be someone of good ethical character…

…The problem is, he has spent many, many, many years entrenching himself into these kinds of social and governmental issues…And frankly, there is some degree of honest, justified concern with regards to some of the issues Alex Jones screams about.

Alex himself may be a government plant, gradually increasing his exposure to the public over the years [he used to only be on shortwave radio], in order to make anyone talking about [and believing] such things to look like a lunatic…and to see how the public reacts to these ideas [and the information] being slowly released…I sincerely have never known, one way or the other…Though I’ve much more strongly suspected him to be a government creation, as of more recent years.

…If you knew Alex during the 90’s, then you know he was absolutely relentless at bashing sexual minorities…I went through a phase, where I was listening to his show for months…and he literally would not shut up about it…It was there, every single show…He was obsessed, with bashing and smearing sexual minorities…Fast forward to today, and peruse his YouTube channel…and the way he has completely dropped [nearly, if not literally] all references to sexual minorities is outright staggering…For someone who was allegedly so deeply convicted that sexual minorities were “destroying America”, Alex sure doesn’t much want to say anything about it these days…I have found this point, in itself, to be extremely enlightening about the personal nature of Alex Jones…He will exploit or drop an issue, apparently based on what strategic advantage or liability it poses…

…and no matter what I think about what Alex says…that is not something one would expect, from a person who has invested that much of themselves, and who has allegedly deemed such things to be so dangerous…How can a person this driven and sure of himself, be so mind bogglingly wishy washy?…I think, he is just putting on a show and tailoring the content based upon the audience…

This is not to say, I think everything coming out of whatever gets produced by Alex Jones is a complete lie…

…I just think the integrity of Alex Jones [and company], is down right awful…

…But, again…They sometimes find what appear to be actual documents and information, which might be relevant…It’s just too bad, you are forced to swallow a tablespoon of salt with every episode of their program…Or, at least you will if you are in the know about Alex Jones.

I very rarely even listen to this stuff anymore…but, even Alex Jones keeps popping up on the YouTube sidebar…

…What I found this time, is uniquely interesting [and happily not presented by Alex, himself]…So, I thought I’d give a link to it.

I realize fully, that news clips can be edited to make them appear differently from how things were…But I genuinely am concerned, that what is presented in that video…it might be truth.

They’ve been coming after the disenfranchised sexual minorities for years…and even the harmless pot smokers…and the peace activists, and those who fight for their own rights, too…Are they now going after “the rest” of society?

…Are guns “the door”?

Down the Rabbit Hole?…


Date: February 4, 2013

01) Hand to hand combat on handedness

I think for a lot of us…we are extremely tired and disgusted with being treated like lab rats, by these kinds of studies…And by chance, are the ultimate goal of these studies to “find a cure for us”?

So, so many of us just want to have a voice, to be accurately represented and respected for who and what we are…not be poked and prodded by researchers, who think they are going to change or control us.

Issues like left handedness and brain matter may be interesting, as trivia…but they don’t really get to the heart, of the social problems we find ourselves entrenched in…and they feel a lot like “rabbit hole” issues being chased.

So many other things could have caused them.

Sophia Investigates The Good News Club…


Date: February 19, 2013

01) Sophia Investigates The Good News Club

So much of this is very, very personally familiar…

…The only thing I really don’t recall from my own early years, is the big hoopla being documented in that video…the inflatable bouncers, and festival atmosphere…but everything else is dead on.

This is a very good documentary [which Child Evangelism Fellowship is presently attempting to take down], spelling out some of the conflicting issues with regards to these kinds of groups running clubs in public schools.

They call themselves the “Good News Club”…Yet another theme, which sounds extremely familiar to me.

This exact type of age targeting, is something which I’ve written [and perhaps talked] about in the past…It is something I strongly disagree with, most especially when religion is taught as fact or even historical fact.

I can be very critical of religion, and have the personal history which warrants this…Yet, I like to think that I normally keep myself very reserved and highly tolerant, even of religion…

…I do not believe that voluntary students should be barred from having a bible class on public school property, after normal classes are over…for example…And for the record, in the USA they are not, anyway…and I agree, that things should be this way.

It gets far more dicey…when you have these large organizations, who are genuinely outsiders…forcing themselves into your schools, and telling you that they want your little kids…and what is going on in that video, is blatant indoctrination of kids who commonly lack the mental faculties to ward off what is happening to them.

It certainly is not that I believe young children should be sheltered from all knowledge of religion…but when you really start dissecting what is actually being taught by these groups…I mean…Personally, I really appreciate the part of this documentary where the woman points out one of their lessons [from one of their own books], where a biblical story of genocide is used to teach “a moral” about obeying “god” completely…[here is a hint, in case you don’t watch this video: Saul is punished by “god”, for failing to annihilate the Amalekites (men, women, children and their animals)…Somehow, this is put on par with “not sweeping the floor thoroughly, when you were told to sweep the floor”]…

…”If you only partly obey, you’re actually being disobedient”…

This is an excellent example, of how utterly warped and lost the moral orientation is of many religious organizations.

…I mean, that alone is flat out demented…and they don’t see the conflicting paradox, of using something like that [which one would rationally think, should cause horror and revulsion], in order to “teach good morals”…by equating the thing itself, with “good morality”…

They might as well be telling those kids [and everyone else], that “Adam Lanza was commanded by god, to slaughter the wicked children of Newtown”…or pick any number of other atrocities happening today, or in our past…The only thing separating those cases from “the Amalekites”, is that they aren’t recorded in the bible, and nobody has claimed [in most cases] that “god commanded it to be done”…But if you believe it was true for saul, then how can you discount the possibility for Adam?

You know what is so maddening to me?…It’s that so many of the people behind these groups are good hearted, well intended people…When faced with the actual thing [ie: school shootings], they are genuinely as horrified, sad and disgusted as any of the rest of us…Yet they cannot wrap their minds around the fact, that if saul really did slaughter the Amalekites…then it was every bit as inhumane, horrific and wicked, as what happened to the children of Newtown [or any number of other cases]…Provided it was not pure fiction, then it was a monstrosity…a crime against humanity…

…And that is what some people want and actively use, as a model?

I encountered these kinds of “morality lessons”, myself…several times over…Almost certainly this one, but also the one with moses…which is extremely bloody. This is a very real phenomena, within the christian branch of theology.

I absolutely do not support that sort of thing being pushed onto kids…Nor the idea, that they are born wicked and deserving of death, and eternal torment in hell.

People should know better than to be doing that…But those good hearted people…So many of them have spent either most or all of their lives, in the isolated atmosphere built and maintained by fundamentalist organizations…

I’ve known people like this all of my life…It’s as though they’ve literally been stripped of the ability to think clearly…What do you even do with people in that state?…Because they are really at the crux of the problem…

…And yes…Speaking as someone who came through [and out of] that sort of an environment, I can attest that it is a problem…Not to over dramatize [if that’s possible], but when you are raised in it…you always come out of it with a lot of psychological, emotional, moral baggage…and you’re left on your own, to work through the mess…which was honestly the making, of people the likes of those behind Child Evangelism Fellowship…

…The experience is psychological hell, for “a sex pervert”…

How do people who sincerely intend to do good…end up doing things which are so utterly fucked up?…and when they so blatantly should know better?

There is no possible way that you can take any story of genocide, committed against an entire people because they did not share your theological outlook…and spin it in a good light…

…And teaching that very sort of thing to even very young children…It makes me wonder where such people’s heads are at, when they start going on rants about “violent video games”, and other cultural influences…

A lot of the influences in the bible, are particularly awful…Yet so few imagine it good, to outwardly say such…So few understand, when it is time to look inward, and admit what is wrong within their own camp.

About “cabinet maker”…


Date: February 18, 2013

01) Yet still another, Non-fan of “cabinet maker”

“Such a narrow focus, and you call me stupid?

I don’t need to resort to name calling or attempts to insult, because I’m fairly certain that my presence here IS positive and IS valuable, regardless of what you say.”

…You’ve learned some important lessons about “cabinet maker”, here…

That particular individual has a long, notorious history of relentlessly trying to pick fights with people on BoyChat, by being personally malicious and vindictive…and behaving in smarmy, underhanded ways.

They are pretty much a one trick pony, in that regard.

One hallmark of “cabinet maker”…is their tendency to force themselves into a thread, by accusing people of “whatever” and forcefully asserting it as “true”…Typically, their claim is entirely out of context to the thread of discussion…Often, it is an outright lie, made just to get jabs in at people…Then, they bash, smear and ridicule you, based on whatever it is they have made up about you…And for those who take the bait, “cabinet maker” goes on an obsessive, immature exchange of posts…defiling threads and BoyChat itself, by making the atmosphere here as absolutely abhorrent and uninviting, as is humanly possible.

They also have this peculiar tendency, to be obviously guilty of many of the exact same things, which they are attacking others over…Sometimes, incredulously, right in the immediate act of attacking…making them a brazen hypocrite.

slvrspun is right…”cabinet maker” gives off all the signs of a sociopath stalker.

I noticed “cabinet maker” has continued their obsessive following of me, probably spouting their usual nastiness below…It’s amazing how much attention I get from them, considering how little I post here…Anyway, I hope you will take whatever it is they said in it’s deserved context, considering the abysmal integrity of the source.

People of integrity do not have to resort to what “cabinet maker” almost universally defaults with.

As a personal bit of advice…Rule of thumb, if a post is made by “cabinet maker”…just don’t open it…It wont stop that troll from littering the index with fight threads [because somebody else will always open and respond to those posts], but it will make your reading here much more productive and pleasurable.

Oh…and I should echo one thing…BoyChat honestly is monitored by people, who can be extremely dangerous towards us…A lot of us [myself included] have watched our friends lives get destroyed, because they were loose with their private information.

BoyChat is not like other forums…and it’s extremely important not to out yourself here.
