“A new survey has revealed that 9 out of 10 children agree that tech firms have a legal responsibility to keep them safe online1.
More than half of the 2,004 11-16 year old children surveyed had accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, YouTube and Snapchat.
Children thought social media platforms should protect them from sexual, self-harm, suicide and violent content online.
These figures come on the day that we handed in our Wild West Web petition to 10 Downing Street.
The petition has almost 46,000 signatures – showing the overwhelming public support for the Government to bring in an independent regulator to force tech firms to keep children safe on their platforms.
We’re now calling on the next Prime Minister to ensure they act quickly to introduce legislation. We believe that criminal sanctions and corporate prosecution are vital for this to be effective.”
You ever find yourself asking questions like…
…How leading were the questions in this survey?
…How well was the importance of open dialogue explained to these children, prior to [or during] this survey?
Few people like the way a large section of the online community behaves so abusively…
…but this comes off like just another cheap censorship campaign, and online power grab.
The tools to deal with this already exist, on major platforms [and some platforms already exist, which are enitrely dedicated to children, and are heavily moderated]…
…Anyone can block and mute, to their hearts content…
Shouldn’t the NSPCC be educating children on the perfectly adequate measures, which are already their at the child’s disposal?
Kids eventually have to learn how to navigate this sort of thing, after all…
…The government being an obsessive nanny, and regulating everything they see, hear and read, is doing them no favors…and is far more dangerous in the bigger picture.
This is stunting human beings…It’s removing their ability to adapt and grow, in a healthy way.
This looks to be nothing more than a measure imposing draconian measures, on the rest of the internet.
Does this organization have integrity?…
03) Hello. FGM is illegal and a form of child abuse. The evidence on MGM isn’t strong enough to suggest that male circumcision should be considered a form of child abuse, when considering the physical, religious and social implications.
This is an organization which takes a strong stance against female circumcision…while at the same time, it cannot figure out that male circumcision is any form of child abuse [let alone, violent, injurious and life threatening], at the very least.
Is this organization even valid?
I know they do some good work in this world…but…Jesus Christ…
…This level of total disconnect from reality, is outright horrifying.

“Can’t ignore the elephant in the room that is Amos Yee. Apologies for hastily-made video in the airport lounge.
This is a woman who fought to get Amos Yee out of Singapore, when he was being persecuted for voicing his views.
…Allegedly, Melissa is a professional free speech [and human rights?] activist…
…And yet…when the speech is concerning “pedophiles” and “pedophilia”…Melissa is not so much of a champion for speech…
In fact…it seems the people who want to push back against pedophile hysteria are “okay to throw to the wolves”…if we are taking Melissa at her word…and, well…she can tell you in her own words.
…Amos was pushing back against the pedophile hysteria, after all.
I am glad I kept Amos at a distance…I don’t have any bad experiences with him…I barely have any experiences with him, at all…but I’m too cautious, to go running into any type of relationship with someone that rambunctious…and I wanted to see if/how he would establish himself, first…I wanted for time to vett him.
It raised a great deal of concern, when the claim surfaced that Amos was outing NOMAP’s…
…Regardless of what you think of NOMAP’s…that sort of behavior is not something I take any positive view on…
It’s one of the unforgivable sins, in fact.
We as a community, exist by delicate balance…and we cannot be violating the very principles which keep us safe and functioning…Nobody can just move in, and decide they are going to impose this sort of thing on the wider community…and I will never side with anyone who does such a thing.
That is a different issue from the subject of this post, however.
We fight…because even the “free speech and human rights champions”, have largely turned their backs on us…
…They are derelict, where it comes to the free speech and human rights of MAP’s.
If they are supposedly the line of defense we are expected to rely upon…
…then we are absolutely screwed.
We are forced to be our own defense…often times, standing alone.

“I really want this to be looked into. This child deserves a healthy childhood.” – AnnaMae Renee
She does not even know the family…and admits there is a lot of speculation, in her complaint…
A little bit off the beaten path…but this absolutely ties in, not only with things that a lot of us MAPs have been subjected to…but with contemptuous, manipulative and paranoid behavior, anyone can fall victim to.
There has been something of an outrage storm, going on in the conservative/religious section of YouTube, regarding “Desmond is Amazing”, his celebrity and performances…
Of course…there are a lot of people, who have no direct knowledge of the situation, who are morally outraged and wanting to have Desmond removed from his home. There has even been a lot of talk, about reporting his parents to Child Protective Services…
…and AnnaMae Renee confesses, that she did just that…and walks us through the aftermath…with an inclusion of her own dictations, on how “Desmond’s life is supposed to be”…making further demand of his mother, to respond with answers to her interrogation…
A number of these sorts of people, have been stalking, digging and collecting information on Desmond and his parents…because they are losing their minds, over Desmond having pranced around on the stage of a gay bar…and throwing off his jacket.
These are people who are clearly letting their imaginations run wild, and spinning a story that “Desmond is in danger”…when there is really nothing to justify that conclusion.
One of the reasons why we fight…is to push back and stand up against this type of online bullying and harassment…
AnnaMae scoffs at being called a bully and a stalker…but that is quite literally, what she has engaged in…
…And there is something wrong, with anyone who cannot self assess…and see that they have crossed a line here.
She even ends the video, with demands towards the mother…she demands the mother submits to her questioning…otherwise…?…
…This is clearly sociopathic behavior.

“Since he was released from prison almost five years ago, John has never had a place he can call home.
Suffering from Parkinson’s disease, he spends nights outside in remote areas of Miami-Dade County—sleeping outside on a mat or in the front seat of his son’s truck.
John (not his real name) was convicted in 1994 of a sex offense involving a minor. His homelessness is a direct result of the Lauren Book Child Safety Ordinance, enacted in Miami-Dade County in 2010, which bans individuals convicted of certain sex crimes, including those involving minors, from living within 2,500 feet of a school.
The ban effectively puts most populated areas of Miami-Dade off limits to him—which is why John is allowed to stay at his niece’s home, which is within the exclusion zone, during the day, but not at night.
The ordinance was named after Lauren Book who, after being sexually abused by a family nanny, went on to become an advocate of tough penalties for individuals convicted of sex crimes against minors. Brook, now 32, won a state Senate seat in 2016 as a Democrat representing Broward County.
Violating the ordinance can result in a $1,000 fine, jail for up to 364 days, or both.
John is one of seven homeless people who sued Miami-Dade County in a case brought jointly in 2014 by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the ACLU of Florida, alleging that the ordinance has resulted in hundreds of people becoming homeless.
Legal Services of Greater Miami and attorney Valerie Jonas later joined the ACLU and ACLU of Florida in litigating the suit.”
We fight…because brazen B.S. like this, is absolutely unconscionable.
There is no world, in which anti-humane laws, rules and regulations like this are acceptable to exist, or be enforced.

“Denise Harvey is residing in Saskatchewan after being granted asylum…
A Florida sex offender, who claimed asylum in Saskatchewan, has been granted protected person status.
In 2008, Denise Harvey was convicted of having unlawful sex with a minor. According to American media reports, the boy was 16-years-old and played on her son’s baseball team.
Harvey fled to Canada in 2010 before she could be sent to prison. She was sentenced to 30 years in jail and is still wanted in the United States.
Harvey claimed her sentence was cruel and unusual punishment and after arriving in Saskatchewan, she asked for asylum.
Her request for protected person status was heard by the Immigration Review Board (IRB) in July of 2012 and the IRB granted her request because it agreed her sentence was indeed cruel and unusual punishment and the crime she was convicted of is not a crime in Canada.”
I find the comments of Chris Alexander to be grossly ignorant…but, I’m not posting them, as I’ve already posted nearly half the article…
It seems Chris imagines residents of the USA cannot possibly comprehend, what true persecution is…
…as if the buffoon doesn’t realize, that life devastating persecution is alive and well, in the USA…It’s just reserved for the minorities who cannot fight back and defend themselves.
The USA is a hell hole of human rights violations, for many, many people…and Denise Harvey was right to seek asylum, over this atrocious, unspeakable monstrosity of a violation.
Florida has some of the most ass backwards laws and penalties, aimed at people and situations like that of Denise Harvey.
It is truly pathetic…that anyone [MAP or otherwise] would have to legitimately flee the USA [ridiculously called “the land of the free”], under circumstances such as these…
…The USA is pathetic and shameful.
…This country brings great shame to me, as a vet.
…I would have never fought to defend and propagate, this cowardly, pathetic, inhumane sham of a country which exists today.
It’s treatment of humans is down right disgraceful…and it’s “first rate” reputation for “championing” human rights, is a down right sickening facade…It’s a bold faced lie…told and held up, by people who don’t even care that it’s a bold faced lie.

“A new centre which offers support and life skills to sex offenders who have been released from prison has opened in Nottingham.
The Corbett Centre for Prisoner Reintegration, which launched today, Monday, will help around 100 former prisoners and is described as the first of its kind in the UK.
Its aim is to reduce reoffending rates by helping ex-inmates reintegrate into society.
But the move has been criticised by victims of sexual abuse, with one calling it ‘a slap in the face’ when many survivors are struggling to access support services.
The project – at an unidentified city centre location – is being run by the Safer Living Foundation (SLF), a charity formed by HMP Whatton and the School of Social Sciences at Nottingham Trent University which offers support to people with sexual convictions.
Professor Belinda Winder, head of NTU’s Sexual Offences, Crime and Misconduct Research Unit, and co-founder of SLF, said: “I can’t emphasise enough how much we empathise with people who have suffered sexual abuse. But that’s why we’re doing this; to reduce reoffending.
“This important initiative will support our existing research to understand and prevent sexual abuse. It will also go a step further in encouraging us to apply our findings so that we can have a real impact on improving the safety of the public and preventing sexual crime.”
A prime example of fear and ignorance in action.
The sex abuse survivors should be rejoicing over this, as it is a move which unquestionably caters to them…and presumably their desire, that whatever happened to themselves doesn’t happen to someone else…
…Is there anything short of lining up the accused and condemned, in a human sacrifice [aka slaughter] ceremony, that will satiate their lust for cruelty and revenge?
Let’s get real!…
…These types of programs exist, not for the extreme cases [who will likely remain in prison], but for the individuals where there is strong expectation they can be manipulated, and kept under the government’s thumb.
These types of cases are well known, to have extremely low recidivism rates. Putting them in a profession and stable lifestyle, is the best chance at keeping them crime free.
Forcing them out of the social survival structure, typically has the opposite effect.
The day is coming…and more rapidly, as they invent new reasons to label someone a “sex offender”, put them on a list, threaten, abuse and ostracize them…when this is all going to come to a head…
There is already a sizable army of human beings, on these lists…held under this abusive oppression…many of whom are still physically capable…some [children, teens and young adults] of whom have their most capable years in front of them…And many have been very unjustly treated…
…What happens, when this army organizes and starts defending itself?
