Created and published in 2008, on my EQvideo YouTube account.


The Script:

The Debate…

===

July 08, 2008

So, what is the problem?

If the so called “need” to hold and perpetuate false stereotypes, while inhumanely destroying people’s lives, is so…”self evident”…

…then what are all of these underhanded, corrupt acts of disruption even for?

Why cant the discussion go on peacefully, without hijack or sabotage?…After all, if the conclusion is so “obvious”, then wont it be continually arrived at?…Wont it stand on it’s own, as the clear winner?

It makes no sense, what so ever…that anyone at all should even think that they would ever have to defend the legal and cultural standing of such a practice, with aggression and threat…let alone, with extreme aggression and threat.

A clue to the public…

Wherever this is going on, there is far more unexplored depth contained in said issue, than is being allowed to meet the eye.

What kind of agenda?…what kind of practice needs terrorism to support it, and keep it in political power?…

Think about that…

…because such an agenda and practice does not hold the weight of an “obvious” conclusion, and hence it is critically threatened by even the slightest suggestion that it is wrong in any way.

If the people in power, or even just pushing an agenda, believe that they must resort to character assassination, threatening one’s life, health, stability, career (etc.), and other extreme underhanded tactics, in order to keep all opposition silent, so that they may have their way entirely unquestioned and uninhibited…

…then something absolutely corrupt is going on there…

Real arguments don’t require someone to physically assault you, in order to “convince” you of their “rightness”…They don’t require that all opposition have their legs and solid footing disrupted, so that opposition is merely distracted and removed from the debate.

“Arguments” which rely on such tactics, as a critical part of keeping them “relevant”, are no arguments at all…

…They are corrupt persecution, committed by small minded bigots, and nothing more.

An Introduction to EQFvideo: M.A. Today – The EQ Review – The Elephant Report – The EQF Public Podium – Diamond Raw…


MA_Today_YouTube_Archive
….

Date: September 16, 2020

In 2008 I started a YouTube channel named EQFvideo.

As the years have gone by and my memory has deteriorated, I’ve mostly been mistakenly calling this EQvideo.

The central project of EQFvideo was M.A. Today [Minor Attraction Today], but the channel hosted a wide range of projects and initiatives…including The EQ Review, The Practical Pedosexual and The EQF Public Podium…as well as various experiments like The Culture Shock Podcast…and the first few episodes of Diamond Raw.

There were other stand alone videos, as well.

EQFvideo lasted a little over a year before suffering censorship.

The channel hosted 55 videos, representing roughly 35 individual productions…This was during the era of YouTube, when videos were restricted to ten minutes in length…So, you were forced to split a project up into sections, which you could then link together in a playlist. It was a pain, and because of this…I have two versions of most of my longer projects. The ones longer than ten minutes uploaded to FreeSpeechTube are the full versions, which never got published until now.

I have the pilot episode of The Culture Shock Podcast chopped up into nine sections…and I won’t likely publish those again.

I loved having this channel, just as I loved having my blog previously [though, I was writing on the Newgon blog, Uncommon Sense, by this time]…It gave me something to pour myself into and interact with the world.

The projects I produced were of varied qualities and relevance…a number of them will not be returned to the internet, and I’m offering in this series the best of what was published.

EQFvideo’s flag ship series, M.A. Today actually turned out quite good, in my opinion…but it was also an enormous amount of work, which is why I started exploring other models…A ten minute video could take you an entire day to produce, especially if you were also writing the script in that time…The video editing was extremely tedious. I don’t see myself producing another one of these, in exactly the same way…though I do intend on taking the ten to fifteen scripts left, and publishing those…probably in audio format and text.

The background music…These videos were a product of their time…What you see here, was rather typical for videos where people were not personally speaking. If I were starting these projects all over again, there would be no background music in M.A. Today.

I was, and honestly remain, a laymen video producer…Making videos was not my primary interest…In fact, when I was making these projects, I was only interested in publishing audio media…but I got pushed into video media, because YouTube was a relatively easy, free platform to distribute my media through…and I already had video editing software, so…

…but, some people judged this as though the video was supposed to be “the” end product…which completely missed the nuance, that I was publishing audio media…and the visual content was a byproduct of how I had to distribute it…I guess that was my fault, given all the extra work I was putting into M.A. Today…It probably gave the impression that I was aiming to make visual media…when all I was really doing, was trying to aid the people who have a hard time understanding the speaking of a voice synthesizer.

Of course, I would come to be interested in making videos…and I’ve done a few…Plus, I have an ongoing video game series I regularly record, upload and share here…So, in a sense…I have evolved in that direction, since the times when EQFvideo was my media channel.

EQFvideo was turbulent in some regards, but it represented a good time for me in my life…where I really started coming out and spreading my wings…really growing and expanding…thriving with a new platform.

What I produced might not have been the most amazing thing you ever saw, but it was instrumental in my own evolution…and led into several years of personal recordings which, while I was never entirely comfortable in this medium, I actually did have a fairly good, robust era of open speaking…Most of which still has not been released…When I do release it, it will be like traveling back in time…Which is part of the allure to me, in releasing it.

I’ve had a much harder time writing and speaking, these last several years…and I’ll probably not return to making new recordings of that length or style.

EQFvideo was quite a ride…and it was intended to be so much more, than what you saw here.

I am proud to offer these historic pieces of EQF media, once more.

M.A. Today 02: Classism…


MA_Today_YouTube_Archive
….

Date: September 16, 2020

01) M.A. Today 02: Classism

Created and published in 2008, on my EQvideo YouTube account.


The Script:

Classism

===

May 05, 2008

===

Classism is the practice of inequality, even when the effected individuals possess the capacity to experience and benefit from the same circumstances.

It is restrictions based upon false or political barriers, which are convenient for those holding power, while detrimental to those being subjugated.

Classism often employs stereotypes and scapegoating, while categorizing people into groups and assigning them with lists of things they “can” do, things they “can not” do, and things to fear (or suspect, disrespect, be angry with and punish) them for.

The current status of the child and the child lover, is an absolutely perfect example of classism. In fact, it is hyper-classism gone insane.

For reasons which fall well outside of natural humanity, typically harmless groups (minorities) are targeted and persecuted, for engaging in a natural activity more harmless than your typical adult on adult relationship. For doing many of the exact same, gentle and tame things which adults take for granted when doing with each other, children and child lovers are treated as though they were violent and cruel torturers.

The natural needs of these two groups of people are called “unimportant”, or even falsely claimed to be “destructive”, when there clearly are positive and beneficial options available.

But that is classism for you.

When the groups who wield the most political power are too short sighted, too mean intentioned or too self centered to care about the very real needs and concerns of the politically vulnerable, the politically vulnerable are hung out to dry and suffer terribly for it.

Classism causes more problems than it could ever hope to solve, presuming that it is even capable of solving any problems at all.

Classism is an act of isolation, contempt and sabotage…and those forced to live not only as underprivileged but also as socially crippled, will rightly perceive that they are the victims of extreme persecution.

The real life consequence of being held down like this, are vast and reach far into every aspect of ones life…It is unconscionable, that this is being done intentionally to any minority.

Denying to people such things as the very simple reality of what they are, their true nature and their natural needs, will never solve any problems.

Trying to cognitively distort the lives and experiences of these minorities, will never solve any problems.

Treating them as if they were “inferior” and “deserving of your abuse”, is the worst thing you could ever do to any minority.

These kinds of obscene, inhumane abuses of minorities will only enrage their targets, inflame whatever problems previously existed and lead to additional problems…which manifest themselves in far worse ways, than had this issue been handled with respect and human decency.

Never accept classism. It is nothing but a form of elitism…and it is always abusive…

The Practical Pedosexual: 01 Child Pornography Sites…


MA_Today_YouTube_Archive
….

Date: September 15, 2020

01) The Practical Pedosexual: 01 Child Pornography Sites

Another project that was a product of it’s time.

I ventured into the “music and text” arena, of online videos.

An aspect or two of this is a bit cringe worthy.

The Practical Pedosexual was a latter project I started, shortly before EQvideo got terminated by YouTube.

It was a good idea [and I think it still is a good idea]…I may have a reservoir of written scripts somewhere [like M.A. Today does]…but, I’m not sure.

The idea behind this series, was to orient Minor Attracted People who’ve just come online, to the dangers that are out there waiting for them.

The Script:

The Practical Pedosexual

Our purpose:

The Practical Pedosexual is a series, aimed at the new arrivals online, in the pedosexual community. These are offered as a piece of advice, for those uninitiated to the workings and dangers of the internet. It is not the intention of this project, nor the people behind it, to give legal advice, nor to advise others in how to break the law while avoiding prosecution. Our single goal, is to share from our own years of learning experience, and help unwary others to avoid making critical mistakes, which they may regret for the rest of their lives.

Topic:

Websites offering Child Pornography.

Over the years, since the internet became mainstream, untold numbers of pedosexuals, pederasts, child lovers and teen lovers have fallen into online traps, specifically designed to seduce them into breaking the law…

…a draconian law, which typically carries with it, grossly extreme penalties, that are known more for their legacy of destroying people’s lives, than for actually protecting anyone at all.

These sites are typically owned and operated by organizations, such as the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, or an alternative equivalent.

They are designed to get your attention, exploit your personal needs [and the fact that you likely have a pent up, unfulfilled orientation, which you are dying to explore], acquire your personal identification and use deception in order to seduce you into saying, that you are willing to accept “child pornography” from them…there in, violating the law, and quite probably several federal and state laws, which could keep you tied up in the courts, in prison…and even at your local police office, as they keep you on a leash for the rest of your life.

The “child pornography” [by whatever definition the laws are interpreted, in “your” area] can be accepted by you, in a variety of ways. Simply accepting a computer file, which allows you to view an electronic depiction of a physical picture on your computer screen, is qualification enough to be charged, in many jurisdictions. This can be as simple as visiting a web page, private or public, where an illegal picture is displayed [though it should be noted, that U.S. federal law does allow the viewing of up to, but no more than, three such pictures, without it being prosecutable, under the circumstances that you promptly report such material online to law enforcement].

You can also agree to have physical pictures mailed to you, and do even more of the investigators work for them, by handing them your name, address and probably credit card information…

Do not ever, ever do either one of these…This is not safe behavior…

While the former scenario may be a bit more complex to prosecute, there have still been many cases where people have been sent to prison for years, and even decades, just for downloading freely available material online. Viewing these files, typically forces a copy of them to be cached on your hard drive somewhere…somewhere you likely wont know about, since operating systems often do not specify this blatantly…somewhere, where it could remain retrievable for years, when searched for with the right software. If you do not know how to properly clean out and wipe these areas on your hard drive, then days, weeks, even years of wandering the “Disneyland” of the internet, may leave you legally “in possession” of dozens, hundreds or even thousands of illegal pictures, when you did not even know it…and ignorance of this, is not accepted as a legal defense in court.

The later scenario is a “slam dunk” prosecution, except in rare cases, with uncommon factors [for example, the Pete Townshend case]…You had better hope that your credit card was stolen, and that no communications can be traced back to “you”, or “your” home…Otherwise, when you get that much anticipated delivery, you will likely be getting a second knock on the door, within the hour…a team of officers, there to arrest you, search your home and seize everything they think “might” have been used in the commission of a crime…This is property you will likely never get back.

These kinds of online stings, are commonly called “honeypots”.

…Avoid them like the plague…They are almost universally law enforcement stings, wherever they are freely available, and out in the open.

It should be noted, that some of such sites do start out as legitimate endeavors, started by naive people…who end up trading with a law enforcement officer, being arrested, sent to prison, etc…and having their site infiltrated by law enforcement…These kinds of people will typically betray their own clients, as part of a plea bargain in their own prosecution. Their site may remain up, and “in business” for months or even years…secretly administrated by law enforcement, who’s sole intention is to entrap the largest amount of people.

As a rule, you should presume all such sites to be a law enforcement sting…because even if they do not start out as such, it is highly probable that they will be embroiled in legal prosecutions, soon…

These kinds of sites have a very poor track record, anymore, especially as more governments have caved in to pressures from the U.S. government, and other groups who react hostile, towards free sexual expression and open, educational disclosure on topics they find uncomfortable.

The only chance that such a site has, of remaining online for an extended amount of time…is if it’s host server resides in a country, where anti “child pornography” laws are lax, or non-existent [there are few such places, anymore]…or, more commonly, where they are secretly taken over by the cops, and used as a “honeypot”…where in, they keep the site in business, in order to entrap people.

People trading in private, may be little more safe…

…A “private” site, only requires being infiltrated by the wrong, invited person…and this happens often…Sooner or later, a secret group grows, and brings in more people…each having a variety of legal understandings, ethics, behaviors and personal security standards. These groups almost always get taken down by their weakest links…and it is only a matter of time, before they find these weak links.

It is never a good idea, to tie yourself to a group of people, who share in the practice of finding and swapping “child pornography”…in fact, it is a huge liability.

Direct swapping with people you do not know, likewise, is a horrible way of making yourself vulnerable…be it meeting someone in a chat room and swapping files, or just using peer to peer file swapping software…unless you are able to hide your internet protocol number [IP address], then you are handing over your electronic “calling card”, to anyone who knows how to make the proper searches with this information…[and that is not hard to do, nor does it cost anything but a bit of time].

Dealing in “child pornography”, regardless of the nature of the material, is not a legally safe activity, and there are several organized groups who will pose a serious danger to you, should you decide to explore this arena.

…Be aware of all the dangers around you…and take them very, very seriously…

…Know your own local laws…Know their penalties, and know your rights…

…It could be the most critical decision of your life…

The internet is no place to be lax, regarding your own security.

Take all of this as a piece of advice, from someone who has been around the internet for many years…who’s had the painful experience of seeing far to many good, decent and loved people, going to prison and having their lives destroyed by horrible legal standards, which we all presently suffer under.

M.A. Today – 001) “Deviant”…


MA_Today_YouTube_Archive

Date: May 27, 2019

01) MA Today 01 ‘Deviant’

Originally Posted on May 06, 2008

“Deviant”…

…What is “deviant”?…

…other than a bit of spooky language, to evoke alarm and infer something is “wrong”?…

Is there such a thing as a “sexual deviant”?…

…honestly?…

Oh sure…we have our dogmatically enforced, social norms…but social norms all to frequently conflict with the natural state of being human…

Short of being born without sex organs, or being born with an extreme deformity…there is virtually nothing, which removes a human of any age, from the sexual arena…or the sexual appeal of others…

This is because, it is in our biological nature, to explore and behave in a sexually active manner.

…There is no “magic age”, where this all begins…

It simply exists within us, as an intrinsic part of us…which we now can trace back, and clearly exhibit, all the way from pre-birth…

…The male fetus has a clear and discernible sex drive…

They just typically do not call it a “sex drive”, because acknowledging the natural sexuality which exists within a child, in a society not designed around any sense of responsibility to respect and nurture that child’s sexuality…is likely to get an extreme and wrathful response, from groups and individuals who harbor, spread and exploit a sense of social panic and phobia, surrounding topics of human sexuality…

…Some of these people hold substantial political influence…and can cause a grave deal of very serious, ill consequence, to anyone who gets in the way of their own, social agendas…

…and they are much to busy spreading the phobia, terrorizing the public with the stereotypes, stigmas and other such propaganda…to ever be bothered with learning about the topics they fear…and learning how to best approach and deal with them…

When you don’t care about the facts, and only focus on the phobia…all the facts and findings inconvenient to your own social agenda, get “lost” and “forgotten” about…as the volume gets turned up on spooky language, stereotypes, stigmas and scapegoating…

A proverbial…mental, “slight of hand”…designed to trick and mislead…to appeal towards and play upon your emotions…as though emotional outbursts will somehow, “out weigh” the sound truth…

…As though the truth will ever cease being important, if you get a large enough number of people worked up, into a frenzied rage…

Let me ask you a question…

If the estimated one in four girls, and one in six boys, is…being “sexually molested” during their childhood…and there are millions of children even just in the U.S.A….

…how well does this bode, for the dogmatically held idea…that sexual interest in children even “is” a deviant behavior in the human species?…

If it “is” happening on that level of frequency, do we even have any justification in calling it “deviant”?…

…What does it “deviate” from?…because it clearly does not deviate from typical, human sexual behavior, if it is happening that much…

…and I guarantee you, all of this “molesting” is not the work of some highly exclusive, ultra private group…consisting of a few dozen “pedophiles” who travel the globe, goosing every cute boy and girl they come across…

…It is the “every man”…the “common” folk…even the people who outwardly rebuke the very activity…who are doing it…

In any civilized society, where the sexuality of children (and youth) is openly acknowledged and addressed in a mature, level headed manner…

…children are typically allowed freedom to sexual experience, and sexual expression…and like any human being, they take to it very enthusiastically…so long as they are being respected, and not personally being brutalized or tormented, within the context of these sexual experiences…

Age is only a number…

Sexual contact between an adult and a child is not…nor has it ever been, universally unaccepted…nor universally condemned…It has been highly valued, in many diverse cultures throughout history…

We only learn that “these kinds of things” are not socially acceptable within our own culture, after years of being exposed to direct (some very harsh) and subliminal messages…until the day comes in which we personally perceive the culturally imposed stigma…and the grave consequence for “offending” that stigma…

…and, this is accompanied by a deafening taboo…one which possesses it’s own sort of phobia…lest anyone ever become so “wickedly” emboldened, to actually speak of such things…

…but, in an atmosphere where no such sexual superstitions exist…children and adults will engage each other in sexual touch and pleasure…and they will quite happily return to each other as sexual lovers, in a long term relationship…so long as they are both comfortable and happy in that relationship…

This is a constant, repeating and understood truth, in human sexuality…

…Age is no barrier to anything…

…So, is this “deviant”?…

…Only if being human, is the same thing as being “deviant”…

It is “funny”, how many of our cultures celebrate the idea of cultural diversity…which is just another term, denoting that we are one large gaggle of humans, who constantly deviate from any one set of norms…yet we cant wrap our collective mind around the concept of a truly comprehensive, sexual diversity…

The fact that we do not conform, in any number of millions of possible ways…we call “that” a, “strength”…an “asset”…”good”…”a positive change for the future”…

…but, where taboos, superstitions and lust for social power are concerned…well…”those” bits of diversity aren’t diversity at all…No…they are “deviancy”…

…There is no celebration of that diversity…There is only that “celebration”, of wallowing in the phobias…exploiting vulnerable minorities…a frenzy of political “feeding at the trough”…

Are we ever going to learn, that human sexuality is part of who we are?…that it “is” us?…that it is not going away?…

…and that if we never learn how to effectively, ethically, logically and maturely interact with it…we are just going to continue on, making a mess of things…and turning this into a far more complicated problem, than it ever should have been in the first place…

…I am a pedosexual…

…but I am no deviant…for I am as normal and natural a human being, as a human being comes…

The biggest difference between “me”, and your typical, “normal” adult…is that I will talk about the exact same type of human experiences, which we nearly all share in common…to one degree or another…

…where as, most people are far to psychologically controlled, to ever muster up the honesty and integrity it requires, for them to outwardly express that…yes, “they” are like this also…”They” have noticed and experienced the same thing, even if only on rare instances…

…They have had these thoughts and desires, too…

EQ Review 03 – Taking Off the Gloves…


MA_Today_YouTube_Archive

Date: May 09, 2019

01) EQ Review 03 – Taking Off the Gloves

This is the last episode of The EQ Review I will be returning to the internet.

It’s bad enough not having the video this was responding to, to link to for context…But, I feel this was probably the single most relevant EQ Review published.

It touches on Perverted Justice, and the fraudulent, illegal “sex offender” register they put together, for the explicit purpose of harassing members of BoyChat, and various MAPs in the blogosphere.

I get a bit sharp tongued, and really speak my mind in this one.

This got published in the year following the loss of my blog, which they had a hand in…So, this was very much personal…very much raw…and I expressed things in ways, I’d likely not do so today..

If I were making this video today…I might still call them assholes…but I’d omit calling them human trash.

In response to the abuses and trespasses they committed against me [and numerous other MAPs]…it’s understandable why I have nothing nice to say about these people.

Sometimes…I’ve read some of my oldest surviving writings…and it even shocked me, how aggressive and emotional some of them got.

I don’t have a whole lot of recollection of myself being like that…But, exchanges and responses could get heated sometimes.
