Cuties director ‘received death threats’ over Netflix film poster…

….

Date: September 07, 2020

01) Cuties director ‘received death threats’ over Netflix film poster

“The director of Cuties has said she received death threats after a promotional poster for the film was criticised for sexualising children.

Netflix apologised and removed the image after receiving significant backlash on social media last month.

Filmmaker Maïmouna Doucouré has now told Deadline she “received numerous death threats” over the poster.

She said Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos phoned her directly to apologise after the poster sparked controversy.

Cuties originally premiered at the Sundance film festival in January and received positive reviews from critics.

Cuties follows an 11-year-old who joins a dance group. Doucouré says it is meant to tackle the issue of sexualisation of young girls.

Netflix showed girls posing in skimpy outfits in its promotional poster for the award-winning French drama, which sparked online disapproval and a petition calling for Netflix to drop the film.

However, many defended the movie and said Netflix had not accurately represented it in the poster.”

We fight, because they will have every other thing under the sun censored, and stay emboldened to threaten the lives of others, if nobody with at least half a lick of common sense ever stands up to them.

This whole fiasco is incredibly stupid…

…There are many people out there, who should be deeply ashamed and embarrassed of themselves.

My knowledge and Opinion: #MakeThemNotice…


….

Date: August 29, 2020

There is an ongoing campaign to unjustly purge MAPs from Twitter…These are a few of my responses.

01) On Twitter

Dear @TwitterSafety
Please be aware, that the Minor Attracted Person [MAP] movement is, first and foremost, a human rights movement.

It is threatening towards no one.

It builds support and community, for the voiceless & demonized.

The MAP movement exists to end, or at least reduce, actual sexual violence and abuse, and to make the world a bit safer for all.

It also exists for the mental well being of Minor Attracted People.

As has already been established, it is far better for MAPs to be out in the open, with a support structure, than to be isolated and unknown.

This movement and its’ presence, have not harmed Twitter in any way, nor the minors who also happen to use Twitter.

MAPs are not leaving this platform…Not even if we cease calling ourselves MAPs.

However, it should be noted that “Minor Attracted Person” is already established in the mental health field, as well as in academic research…

Banning this identity and related discussion…

…should not even be an issue of question, at this point in time.

There is literally no justification for it.

“CSEM”, child abuse, child porn, confessions of abusing children…These Are Not “MAP content”.

Anyone suggesting otherwise, has disingenuous motives.

I trust that Twitter will maintain it’s loyalty to human rights, free speech and open dialogue, for all MAPs who use Twitter in full compliance with it’s terms of service.

You are doing a deep and honorable service to humankind, in supporting the voices of MAPs.

02) On Twitter

#cleanuptwitter #MakeThemNotice

As a human rights activist who happens to be a MAP, I use Twitter to supplement my blog, which exists for education, communication, expression…sometimes even entertainment…all legal and within TOS.

Twitter does not have a MAP problem…

…It has a “paranoia about MAPs” problem.

03) On Twitter

#CleanUpTwitter

Twitter does have this, but you have to search for it.

https://support.twitter.com/forms/cse

This likely filters out many of the people who make knee jerk reports, over tweets legal and within terms of service.

The more people flood it with bad reports, the longer things like child porn will remain up.

04) On Twitter

You should be thanking people like myself, for being out here and opening up doors of communication.

You needn’t bother responding to me again…

It’s clear you think people should be smeared, harassed and terrorized online, for nothing more than being here, and using resources.

05) On Twitter

Well…thank you for plucking that “gem of wisdom” out of thin air…

Yeah…like I said last night…nearly all I ever see out of you sort, is a bunch of bleating and snorting…

Never any substance…and you aggressively dismiss actual substance, on a whim.

06) On Twitter

Ah…

…defending someone who lacks the decency and humanity, to refrain from “pride” policing another human being…

You two are quite the thought manipulators, aren’t you?

The “big sin” these days…”thinking you belong, and are worth something as a human being”…

07) On Twitter

This last one gets very curt at the end. It may be uncomfortable for some, but it addresses something which I think has remained unaddressed for far too long…and something which is more than just a small pet peeve of mine. It angers me that people try to exploit the ignorance of the masses like this, using that tactic.

#cleanuptwitter

Let’s get real…

…MAPs are not leaving Twitter, regardless of how big a stink people raise, or who they take their tantrum too.

Even if you managed to get the ludicrous goal of banning the term “Minor Attracted Person”…

…or it’s acronym “MAP”, this would do nothing to stop us from being here…We adapt in whatever ways we need to…

I’ve never even identified as a MAP in my bio…and I am among the longest running group to identify as MAP…

…It doesn’t bother me to not use the term…

But…you’re going to need some really amazing arguments, to ban a term which is already established and in use, not only in the mental health field…but in academic research.

Surveys and studies use the term…It’s been published…

…a good number of times, in fact…

So…how do you ban an entirely valid term like “Minor Attracted Person”, which has been in use in these fields for several years…and which has a history going back over twenty years, from being used on Twitter?

And who do you ban from using it?…can you link or cite websites and articles with the term in it?…

[What about the people complaining about MAPs?]

…What about all the other groups who use the MAP acronym?…

..”Banned” means banned, after all…How are you going to consul the Multi Animator Project people?…

If Twitter relented to this insane demand, there is something really, really massive to consider…

Some people might argue that Twitter already crossed this line with Alex Jones, or white nationalists…and I would be inclined to agree, if it weren’t for one thing…

…both of those cases involved people and groups violating Twitters TOS…

The Grade A asshole Alex Jones, wasn’t even competent enough to give any recognizable disclaimer, making it clear he is a “performance artist”, and that nothing he or his guests say should be taken…

…literally…and because of this, various loons ended up in places they should not have gone…some with loaded weapons…and quite dangerous…a few have ended up in prison over it…

White nationalists…well…I never paid much attention to them…so, I cannot make absolute…

…claims about their behaviors…but I can say, if they dehumanized other races, that is one TOS violation…If they pushed a race war…again…TOS violation…

I’ve seen a lot of ugly things, associated with that type of ideology…it persists til this day.

That type of banishment is a whole different animal…from what so many in this hashtag clearly seem to be pushing…

…namely, the singling out of people who are in full compliance with Twitters TOS, and banishing them from the service without cause…

…other than to appease an angry, paranoid, ignorant mob…

The people behind the #cleanuptwitter hashtag, appear to be demanding that people be penalized on Twitter, based solely on sexual orientation, and immutable, inborn characteristics.

I don’t believe these people even comprehend, the Pandora’s box this would open…and all the reasons @jack and company are so against going down that road…

…Because the Alex Jones and white nationalists of this world brought with them an obvious, intentional behavior…

…which clearly violated the TOS, attacked and harmed real people, in the real world…

This is entirely absent, when we are talking about MAPs who are minding their own business [interacting among their own community], staying legal…

…objectively doing nothing harmful to anyone at all…and staying within the TOS…

…you know…those of us who are just trying to be out here, as good representatives of the MAP community, and decent diplomats to the world…

If Twitter wants to start openly targeting us, where it is so clearly baseless and indefensible…and they want to say that something immutable within us makes us ineligible to participate on this platform…

…they can no longer argue, that they are not a publisher, if they have so clearly taken a public stance on who they will publish content from, and what subject matter they are willing to publish…

…Because they’re not making decisions based on bad behavior, anymore…

…They’re making decisions based out of prejudiced discrimination, and political/social opinion…They’re deciding what people can, or cannot, discuss on this platform…

…And how on earth do you conclusively argue, that discussion of an established group…

…for which there are now several published studies, papers and programs…as well as groups and organizations…how do you conclude that “it’s only right, that these people and their issues cannot be discussed on Twitter”?

There is no way to split this hair…

…and if you somehow managed to force Twitters hand in all of this…not only would it all be for naught, because many of us will just keep rolling on, discussing issues with different wording…words you’d have to take away from an ever increasing…

…number of people…as you keep trying to ban more and more ways of expressing ideas you don’t like…

…but it would also make Twitter legally libel for everything posted on it’s platform…because it would then be a full blown publisher…

…and if you imagine things are messed up now…Ha!…

…Grab your ass…buckle up, and get ready for one hell of a rough ride…because Twitter would never be the same again…

…One of the biggest reasons so many people dislike you crybullies…is because of your penchant for ganging up en mass, running rampant like unholy terrors on a website, imposing your own will over others, in a completely unilateral, unaccountable and contemptuous manner…

…and basically, everywhere you go…you completely fuck up and destroy the place, for everybody else “you” deem “okay” to abuse, and act like a complete douche bag shit towards…

Twitter will have to change massively, if it makes the changes you are demanding…

If they are legally a publisher…they’ll have to approve everything before it gets published, complete with all the extra costs of pre-screening and lawyers…If Twitter is not profitable now, it certainly wont be then…You’ll just be driving it further into the…

…financial hole…and speeding it towards an earlier death…

One last issue…for all you sorts “so timid”…”so certain” in your paranoia…that “what you got going on, is to irresistible” to stop people from raping you…yet, you have no problem barging into our hashtags, approaching and abusing us…

First…Jesus Fucking Christ…would you please stop inflicting on the rest of us, this mind numbing, neurotic self flattery?!!

You are in dire need of a reality check, and a whole fuck ton of the real facts…

Any modestly self respecting MAP…

…would not put up with your shitty attitude, abuse and bullshit…

Lastly…there are a lot of us MAPs, myself included, who have never sexually wanted your nasty, rancid asses in the first place…

Sorry sweethearts…You ARE NOT “all that”…

So…kindly stop accusing people who never even wanted you sexually, of “wanting to rape you”…

Seriously…you people are pathetic.

08) On Twitter

This is correct…

Twitter factually has a zero tolerance policy, which it strictly follows.

People in this hashtag [#cleanuptwitter] are twisting the facts, and equating a sometimes slow response time, with “allowing” it [ie: child porn].

Lots of mischievous story tellers in this hashtag.

Slander for Profit: Jon K. Uhler…


….

Date: November 29, 2019

01) LINK

“Radio host, Carrie Abbott (http://CarrieAbbott.com) and
Jon K. Uhler, MS, LPC, discuss the minds, motives, & darkness of Sexual Predators.

A heavy conversation, but so important, if we are to learn how to protect kids & support survivors.”

We fight, because people like this are free to slander and libel us at will, without consequence, and even in the pursuit of personal, monetary gain.

This “interview” is a doozy.

02) Jon on Twitter

You can follow the link to his Twitter account, take a look around, and come to your own conclusions about the extremity of his dehumanizing behavior.

He has a “business” which offers “professional advice” to churches, to “get/keep sexual predators out”. He produces and releases a seemingly endless stream of fear mongering, and libelous smearing against MAPs.

…all while exhibiting no actual understanding of MAPs, MAP issues or the MAP movement.

He appears to be a typical, abusive, exploitative bigot.

03) LINK

Hamburger Veermaster unpacks and critiques a typical Jon K Uhler rant.

04) LINK

…and gives a bit of background on Jon.

Do you feel right about having someone like Jon out there, spreading this type of dehumanizing propaganda?…If you are a MAP, are you okay with people like this, doing these things at your expense, and for a predatory personal profit?

Esther Baker Made Bankrupt Over “Rape” Libel Case – are Jacqui Dillon and Jayne Senior Next?…


….

Date: October 15, 2019

01) Esther Baker Made Bankrupt Over “Rape” Libel Case – are Jacqui Dillon and Jayne Senior Next?

“Today, at 12:55 in the afternoon at the Liverpool Civil and Family Courts, Esther Baker was made bankrupt as a result of her crumbling libel claim against John Hemming and her failure to pay the costs order. At this point, most mentally healthy people would think again about supporting her. Two notable exceptions to common sense however are “Dr” Jacqui Dillon and Rotherham Councillor Jayne Senior. Despite Hemming now having won two libel claims against significant opposition – a former Guardian journalist and a charity CEO – these two women continue to refer to Baker’s allegations on Twitter.”

We fight back, because of slanderers and charlatans…

…And when we do fight back, we tend to win.

Hundreds of police officers pretend to be ‘knights in shining armour’ so they can prey on children, witnesses and vulnerable people for sex, damning report reveals…


….

October 02, 2019

01) Hundreds of police officers pretend to be ‘knights in shining armour’ so they can prey on children, witnesses and vulnerable people for sex, damning report reveals

Thanks to feinmann0!

“A report found 415 complaints under ‘abuse of position for sexual purposes’

Suspects, victims of crime, children and witnesses are among those exploited

Comes after rapist Ian Naude preyed on his 13-year-old victim while a police constable in Cheshire

Hundreds of police officers have been accused of exploiting crime victims for sex by pretending to be ‘knights in shining armour.’

A total of 415 allegations have been made against officers for ‘abusing their position for a sexual purpose’ in three years, HM Inspectorate of Constabulary said.

Suspects, victims of crime, children, witnesses and vulnerable people are some of those who were exploited.


COMMENT from SUBMITTER:

When a country creates an unaccountable police state, as it clearly has in the UK, there is no limit to their criminality. The topic above is just one tip of a huge iceberg being uncovered. A second, larger chunk, is the police-enabled false allegations industry. The Daily Mail appears to be the only newspaper making some sort of effort to do the uncovering.”

What is the best way for an actual predator to evade the law?…

…It’s to become the exact person, responsible for enforcing the law in their area.

They can always fail to open an investigation on themselves.

If nothing happens at the early levels…nothing ultimately happens.

I’ve mentioned this a few times over the years, and it recurrently shows to be true…

…there are strong parallels between the mind of a criminal, and the mind of a cop…particularly the authoritarian type of cop.

They are both social bullies…and often a criminal could have become a cop, or a cop could have become a criminal.

This is a well established point of fact.

Yes…of course…”not all cops”…

But it’s still something social science has made clear.

James Hunter: The Pedophile as a Folk Devil…


….


Date: September 30, 2019

01) The Pedophile as a Folk Devil

“A Tragic Suicide

Sixteen-year-old Cory Walgren committed suicide on January 11, 2017.

Cory committed a crime for which he faced the possibility of being punished by consequences that he believed were worse than death. At 16 years of age Cory was faced with the possibility of joining the ranks of the most hated social pariah in our society and facing a lifetime of never being accepted as a normal citizen with the respect and rights that ought to be a part of citizenship. It was not irrational to think that this might be a fate worse than death.

Most liberal-minded people would probably feel that making a video of his sexual activities with his girlfriend was poor judgment, but it was hardly a heinous crime. Few would think that a virtual death penalty would be an appropriate consequence for either his sexual activities or his making a video of them.”

NSPCC Wild West Web Petition: “9 in 10 children back new online safety laws”…


….

Date: July 01, 2019

01) Children have told us that they want tech firms to keep them safe from abusive content online. So Gov must create a new social media law to keep children safe online and end the #WildWestWeb

02) 9 in 10 children back new online safety laws

“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?

Or…

…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.

The_Wall_WWF007_NSPCC Wild West Web Petition

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.

Melissa Chen: Can’t ignore the elephant in the room that is Amos Yee…


….

Date: June 24, 2019

01) Can’t ignore the elephant in the room that is Amos Yee [December 10, 2018]

“Can’t ignore the elephant in the room that is Amos Yee. Apologies for hastily-made video in the airport lounge.

My statement:”

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.

Mom of ‘Desmond is Amazing’ Reported to CPS, by a YouTuber Who Fully Admits Her Complaint is Based Upon Legal, Online Videos…


….

Date: March 08, 2019

01) Desmonds MOM Confronts Me.

“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.
