Pedophilia and Terrorism: What Have I Been Saying, All These Many, Many Years?…

…The War on Paedos: Grooming the Public’s Fear [BoyChat]…

…The War on Paedos: Grooming the Public’s Fear [BoyChat]…

…The War on Paedos: Grooming the Public’s Fear [Original Article]…

…The War on Paedos: Grooming the Public’s Fear [Original Article]…

“Twelve years on and the worldview of Reverend Jerry Vines is now shared by the British government, which has just announced that paedophiles are to be treated in the same way as terrorists. According to several sources, new legislation targeting paedophiles will be included in the Queen’s Speech. It appears that the UK prime minister, David Cameron, is determined to close a ‘loophole’ that permits paedophiles to publish and possess ‘manuals’ that offer tips to would-be predators on children about how to identify and groom their targets. The new law would authorise the use of the kind of extraordinary sanctions used to target terrorists who download bomb-making manuals. Cameron argued that it is ‘completely unacceptable that there is a loophole in the law which allows paedophiles to write and distribute these disgusting documents’.”

[…]

“The interweaving of the narrative of terrorism with that of paedophilia is driven by a tendency to attach campaigns and causes to the cause of child protection. Since its inception in September 2001, the war on terror has always been far too distant and abstract to capture the imagination of the British and European public. However, perceptions about the threat of stranger-danger to children are very different. Paedophilia has emerged as an all-purpose focus of dread, which is why policymakers tend to interpret threats through the idiom of child protection.”

This is not the sort of thing I keep mentioning, day after day…So, nobody can be blamed if they happen to be unaware…But as I’ve looked around and seen it, I have been the singular voice in the online pedosexual community, who over the past decade has been foretelling of the social and political trend to psychologically link pedophilia with terrorism.

I’ve been saying this for many, many years…that they are pushing this idea to a head, and it is going to result in new draconian laws, somewhere.

Here we are today, in 2014…and what I have been repeating over the past decade [at least], is materializing before our very eyes.

…The writing has been on the wall, mind you…if you cared to look and recognize it…I’m just a bit shocked, that more pedosexuals have not been speaking out against this trend.

Maybe…the whole idea seemed to far flung, to ludicrous to come to pass?…to awful to comprehend that a major world government in the so-called civilized world, would proclaim our simple speech to be “terrorism”?…

It is official now…Terrorists and the extreme, horrendous inhumanities they inflict upon the rest of us, have become the new foothold in which to attack pedosexuals…in which to manufacture new criminal behavior…in which to create a world, where a pedosexual can do nothing short of existing in complete silence and social paralysis, without falling afoul with the law.

The terrorism aimed and inflicted upon pedosexuals is expanding…and being propagated by allegedly moral, decent and fair government bodies…allegedly decent and intelligent people…

Their ultimate goal, has been to straight up criminalize the open, or even privately expressed speech of pedosexuals…So that we have zero lines of communication and expression.

My gut sense is that they even want it to be a crime for any pedosexual to speak back to them, even regarding what they are doing to us pedosexuals…They simply want a social and legal premises, on which to seize someone and lock them up, upon merely being identified as a pedosexual…That is where this is leading…declare every pedosexual expression [or behavior] a crime, and set about gathering up every suspected pedosexual…taking them away to some form of concentration camp.

Eventually…if they keep passing enough laws…we cannot help but be turned into criminals…at the hands of these barbaric politicians…and for behaviors, which nearly anybody else can take for granted as a freedom in these countries.

I want that last point to sink in…

…They are attacking our literal base ability of speech and expression, and calling it “terrorism”…

…Oh sure…they framed it as targeting “how to molest children manuals”…but the absurdity in this, is that the existence of such “manuals” as a social phenomena is so pathetically unsupported…There may be an extreme, tiny few instances of things which allegedly qualify as “how to” manuals dealing with this…but where are they, and how many of them can you [or anybody else] even cite?

This is nothing but a brazen assault against pedosexual expression…a step to be built upon, in the coming future…and over something which cannot even be intelligently argued, as a social phenomena or a social threat.

They are getting away with doing this stuff, based upon non-existent social problems…When the arguments for their terrorism against pedosexuals becomes this weak…and yet it still stands…you know that something very bad is about to happen.

I want to bring one last incite to this post…

“Child molestation manual”, is an extremely vague term…and one which remains undefined.

In the age of brief E-Books, explaining how to do all sorts of things…I have to question, if a simple webpage containing a paragraph or two which discusses a realistic adult/child sexual encounter, could be deemed a “child molestation manual”. It is all going to be subjective judgment…dealt out, by people who do not like “your” type of speech…And since they are already passing the threshold of making speech a crime…what are the safeguards in place, to stop them from throwing you into a prison [or concentration camp], because you’ve expressed a politically and socially unpopular thought?

…There aren’t any…Once things have gotten to the point where they successfully criminalize speech…things have already fallen off the edge of the cliff…The targeted minorities are lost in a complete, modern day social nightmare.

Entirely valid speech, which discusses and tries to explain intergenerational relationships of a sexual nature…are likely the ultimate target…The ultimate goal being, identifying and making a public example of those pedosexuals who stand up for their own human rights…intimidating the rest, deeper into silence.

I’ve never written a “how to” manual…and while I have written a small handful of child erotica stories over the years [published on appropriate websites], I’ve never discussed deeply how one might go about nurturing a relationship, with the ultimate goal being sex with minors. If I did such, I’d probably be shut down by my blog host, if I posted it or linked it here…So, I am painfully, frustratingly aware…of the fine line that I walk…

There are still a few things I have written, which I intend to republish here…They are a couple inclusions of my “In Self Defense” collection, where I get fairly deep and graphic, explaining some of my own sexual experiences as a boy…and one where I contrast two very different narratives, in order to argue the absurdity in equating one with the other. I’ve been in limbo, trying to decide the best path forward…because I am not willing to gut the very project, itself, of it’s core substance…But I also know, that it treads a fine and subjective line…Sometimes, I feel like I am being placed in an impossible situation…an entirely unjust situation. This is one of those times.

I question…At the very least…is my own blog, my own expression, going to be targeted and blocked, by the ISPs of Brittan?…the rest of Europe?…

What is happening right now, is not the behavior of a civilized or good natured people…

Pedophilia and terrorism have utterly nothing to do with each other…You cannot find two issues, which are more alien to each other.

I think we are presently witnessing…the beginning stages, of the human species next holocaust.

…They are finally making concrete outward movements, leading us down that path…after many years of vague [or not so vague] hints, that they were ultimately going to push this down everybody’s throats.

For all of it’s self aggrandizing…the human species has really learned nothing, where it most matters in social conflict…It still does not know how to get along in harmony, with it’s own kind…It still is it’s own worst enemy.

Pedosexuals are not your enemy…Stop pushing and attacking us!

Second Class Boy Scouts: Captive Gay Youth in the Boy Scouts?…


Date: April 22, 2014

…Boy Scout Troop Loses Charter Over Gay Leader…

…Boy Scout Troop Loses Charter Over Gay Leader…

The Boy Scouts of America, which voted last year to allow gay scouts but not openly gay scout leaders, has revoked the charter of a church-sponsored troop here for refusing to fire its adult gay scoutmaster.

The decision, which one gay rights organization said was a first since the policy change last year, essentially bars the Rainier Beach United Methodist Church and its 15 scouts from using logos, uniforms or names associated with the Boy Scouts as long as the scoutmaster and Eagle Scout Geoffrey McGrath, 49, remains in charge.

You know, this is curious…

…Because it seems to me, by taking in homosexual youth while barring homosexual adults…the Boy Scouts of America [BSA] is actively cutting off an important exposure to role models…You know, people these minority kids can look at, and identify with…the “He’s just like me!” epiphany…maybe, learn a bit of dignified self worth from…dare I say, belonging and pride?

…Just when you thought the fighting with the BSA was over…a hair has been split…

I guess…in all fairness, the BSA never said they would accept open homosexual adults…But what is the implication of this?

…A lot of homosexual youth, who they previously did not want…are now welcomed in…and brought into a social structure, maintained under the anti-homosexual control of BSA leaders…

Has the BSA relented, with the idea in their heads that they can take in confused kids and push them towards a heterosexual life?…Is that “the concession”, which the BSA took away from all of this?

I am not making the accusation…I am just asking the natural question…

I grew up in a deeply religious institution…And I’ve experienced first hand, how many religious leaders think, when it comes to “recruiting sinners”. Trying to pull people [children included] out of their natural environment and into a secluded, highly structured environment, one which caters solely to the visions of some religious group…in order to mold these “sinners” into the image of said religious group…

…This situation with the BSA, gives me the same kind of feeling…”Get their control over the young, while they can still be easily manipulated…and work on them, in order to change them”…

When religious concepts of heaven, hell, eternal souls and damnation come into the picture…this can have extremely bad, long term psychological consequences, for sexual minority kids.

What the BSA is doing…it looks like just another psychological minefield, homosexual boys are liable to get dragged through.

…What a total crying shame, that some humans cannot bring themselves to be better humans.

Maybe as one commenter I saw somewhere said…it is time for the BSA to close it’s doors, go away, and allow better organizations to fill the void?

…BSA leadership is stuck in the past…Maybe, it’s time to evolve into the present?

Pedophiles Are Dumping Grounds For The Ill Deeds of Sadists, Now?…


Date: April 22, 2014

…More evul peedophile propaganda…

…More evul peedophile propaganda…

…Disturbing new internet child abuse sees toddlers raped and burned live on webcam as paedophiles use Bitcoin to stop being traced, warns police chief…

…Disturbing new internet child abuse sees toddlers raped and burned live on webcam as paedophiles use Bitcoin to stop being traced, warns police chief…

“One of Europe’s top police officers has warned of a sickening online trade in child torture porn.

Rob Wainwright, the director of Europol, said offenders are using the untraceable online currency Bitcoin to pay for depraved ‘shows’, performed live on webcams, which see young children raped and burned.

He said: ‘The level of depravity seems to be descending year on year, frankly, including what seems to be in vogue now, which is live webcam ‘shows’ of toddlers not just being raped but being burnt with cigarettes.”

This outrageous trend just never ends…

…So, now Rob Wainwright and his people have allegedly stumbled across some underground, likely small clique of sadists who are into abusing small children…

…And somehow, this is the fault of pedophiles?

What Rob Wainwright describes, is patently sadist behavior…It is not pedophilia.

The fact that these sadists allegedly chose children, is incidental…

Heck, truth be told…those were likely either the children of these sadists…or they were children, which these sadists had full access to…You know, situations like “the girlfriend’s kid”…or foster care horror stories…

Now, maybe there is a small sub-culture of pedophile sadists which exists…but sadism is in no way equivalent to pedophilia. These are two vastly different things…The world is large…If you keep looking long enough, eventually you find that even contradicting things will sometimes converge.

Thing is…what results is a sort of “hybrid”…which is not exactly one or the other…It’s issues and behaviors, are not the responsibility or fault, of whichever base minorities it is taking it’s roots from.

BitCoin [and the obsessive bemoaning of encryption] gets dragged into this, as well…making this propaganda piece a blatant, all out assault on internet privacy, as well…Not just another golden opportunity, to spread hate speech and drag pedophiles through the mud.

…That brings up another matter, which leaves me in dismay…these cops who have decided for themselves, that none of us should have competent and secure encryption…They either want it gone, or they want default back doors…either option would decimate commerce and privacy on the internet, and open the door wide for criminal activity…It would leave people much more vulnerable…This is not a question of “who has something to hide”, people…It’s a question of how long it takes the wrong people, to discover ways to exploit these back doors…and an endless treadmill, of trying to patch those holes.

…No thank you!…If you cannot even trust your encryption to actually keep you [and your content] safe…then you, effectively, don’t have encryption.

Cops do not have the right, to strip us of our encryption…And I am speaking as someone who has nothing of prosecutable value to hide…At this point in time, nothing I have can lead to grounds for legal prosecution. My own concern, is straight up personal privacy…and not allowing others to snoop through my entirely legal [if sometimes controversial], private files.

Lastly, I just wanted to respond to part of one commenters words…

“The sickening depravity of these people knows no bounds…”

This individual did not explicitly say they were referring to pedophiles…but given historic trends, I am hard pressed to conceive, what other group they might be aiming this comment at.

I wanted to state in no uncertain terms, what I know that pedosexuals like myself, who I have associated with for years, would also attest to…

…What is described in this “news” story, is not something in any way associated with my own interests or pursuits. I find the rape and torture of children to be deplorable and inhumane. Provided this case is real, then this is a prime example of a situation where intervention is required. The persons responsible for the literal rape and torture of children, deserve to be prosecuted to the fullest extent possible.

Kindly do not presume that because we are pedosexuals [pedophiles], we somehow approve of or support this kind of behavior.

We don’t deserve to be blamed, for what a small handful of cruel sadists are allegedly doing to children.

This American Life: Tarred and Feathered…


Date: April 13, 2014

This American Life [http://www.thisamericanlife.org/] has a podcast…

I wanted to share this weeks episode with you.

Direct Link to Episode:

Note: This link may only be good for one week [starting April 13, 2014]. Apparently, they only keep one episode available on their podcast feed, at any given time…After a week, they move that episode to their iTunes account, where it costs 99 cents to download…So, do get it now…or you may lose the chance to get it free.

http://feeds.thisamericanlife.org/talpodcast


Although there is a very interesting story in the first half, featuring a guy who had his life turned upside down by an anonymous person posting defamation against him online [including being accused of being a pedophile]…the story I wanted to bring attention to, starts a bit after the thirty minute mark.

This is not a typical report [and interview] concerning “pedophiles”…And even though it may still be a far cry, from the type of media content I would most prefer to see…I have to applaud This American Life, for at least doing something uncommon [a few things, honestly]…for covering something in a way most people, seemingly, never would.

True…this is the safe, “understanding them deeper” approach…and one which relies on a “pedophile” who is mirroring the same bias against “pedophiles” held by, seemingly, most people…

…But, it is a step away from the usual tripe we encounter…that stuff where it is all about people ranting, raving, making unsupported accusations and claims, people spewing venom while talking of their feelings about hypothetical situations…all noise and ignorant bluster, with little [or no] substance…

“Adam” is eighteen years old, and knows he is a pedophile…He starts downloading child pornography, and sees nothing wrong with it…until the day, he witnesses an adult doing something with an eighteen month old child, which disturbed him [I am unsure, what the nature of this activity was]…He decided that he needed help [for himself], got his mother to set up an appointment with a local therapist…told this person that he was “a pedophile, addicted to child pornography”…and she [the therapist] very promptly betrayed his trust…

This story does not delve deeply, into what the fallout was of this…but the therapist admitted she was not qualified to handle his case, and he stopped seeing her…In short, it was a mammoth mistake for him to go there and do that…and it just goes to point out, how deeply destructive it is…that we lack our own larger support structure, one that would be available and open to everyone who is like us.

We are all left adrift, to our own devices…to figure out how to move forward…There simply is little source, for sound and competent advice…from somebody who knows…somebody who has been there…somebody who knows where the pitfalls are.

One of the biggest tragedies in this…is all of us who end up offering our own heads up on a silver platter…simply because we lack guidance, from somebody who understands and cares…and we cannot figure out how to take that next step forward, while keeping ourselves safe.

…I hope, “Adam” has not ended up on a sex offender registry…or with a ruined life…because that is the sort of fate suffered, by people who naively show all their cards to the wrong person…You may think they are going to help you…but they are much more likely to severely hurt you…

“Adam” set up his own online, exclusive support group [which remained un-named in this interview], for “pedophiles” who have internalized, accepted and mirrored the mainstream notions about sexual contact between adults and minors…He does not allow “pedophiles” of differing experience or opinion, to participate…Apparently, he does have a small following of likeminded “pedophiles”.

…In some ways…this last story comes off feeling more like “a success story” [by mainstream presentation standards]…because we have that whole “uncle tom” dynamic going on…The masses can more easily get behind someone who they think is “fighting their own inner demons”, putting their own differences in the trash to gain acceptance from others…Some of them can wrap their minds around the notion of, “a monster trying to not be a monster”…

…I guess…that might be a positive development, given where we have started from…and where we have gone, these last few decades…

Truth be told…”Adam” is just an example of one variant in human sexuality…This is not an abnormality…It is a variant

It sounds to me, that “Adam” has a lot more living, learning and experiencing ahead of him…and I sincerely hope that he does continue to search “outside the box”, taking to heart the experiences and insights of many who have walked this path before him…I wish him all the best, and hope that he makes his way out of the political and social maze, which they try to trap people like us in…

…A window of time downloading child pornography, followed by one shocking instance of it and a bad trip to the therapist, is not much to base your own understanding and stance upon…

On another note…there are some other interesting tidbits in this segment…like a rare public acknowledgement, that “development of pedophilia” has never been established as associated with being molested…Or, in other words, there is no discernable direct link between the two.

Some people claim they were “molested”, and that this “made them a pedophile”…usually after they have been caught doing something, where it becomes convenient to blame somebody else for their own behavior…

Truth be told…they may be a pedophile…and they may have been molested…but they almost certainly would have been a pedophile, no matter whether they had been molested or not…The orientation is distinct, from the “molestation” experience.

By all means…please do take a listen to this. It is an interesting episode.

Human Rights Watch Report: Sex Offender Laws and Child Offenders…

……
….

Date: April 1, 2014

This is actually an excerpt from section seven, of a report on the effects of sex offender laws, authored and published by the Human Rights Watch organization in 2007.

…No Easy Answers: Sex Offender Laws in the US…

…No Easy Answers: Sex Offender Laws in the US…

The entire thing really deserves a full read…but I just wanted to highlight a portion, and share it…maybe give a brief comment.

It gives statistics from the U.S. Department of Health and Welfare…and please keep that point in mind…we are looking at the U.S. governments own numbers, from it’s own research, and the U.S. government is incredibly hostile towards many forms of human sexuality, including pedophilia…In other words…contrary to what some may suggest, I do not cherry pick my quotes from soft or generally questionable sources…Much of what I have learned over the years, has ultimately come from the very same government which hounds and assaults people like me.

…Wrap your mind around that, for a moment…

…Yeah…it is royally messed up, that they’ve known all this time [all along?]…their ruthless war is against entirely normal, entirely natural, entirely harmless behavior…and even against very beneficial behavior…

…They’re waging an inhumane war against humans, for the “crime” of having been a human amidst going about living a natural life…

…[I feel like flipping the middle finger at the U.S. government, right now]…

Anyway…On too the interesting content…

…Consensual Teenage Sex…

…Consensual Teenage Sex…

“Some of the sexual behaviors by youth that lead to a sex offense conviction and the application of sex offender laws do not involve the sort of acts or intent normally associated with criminal offenses. Most child behavior experts agree that sexual experimentation is a normal part of a young person’s development. Some of the youthful offenders who are currently required to register as sex offenders were exploring their sexuality, or engaging in other typical adolescent behavior such as genital play or consensual sexual intercourse.

According to a survey conducted by the US Department of Health and Welfare, by age 14, more than one-third of the survey’s respondents reported genital play with another youth under the age of 18, and about one-fifth had started having sexual intercourse. By age 16, over 40 percent of both sexes report intercourse, and that rises to 55 percent for both boys and girls at age 17. Child development experts agree that consensual sex play among children, including intercourse between teenagers, “is not psychologically harmful under ordinary circumstances and is probably a valuable psychosocial experience in developmental terms.”

More than one third reported having sexual experiences, by the age of fourteen…If this is indicative of a social trend [or common human behavior], then a heck of a lot of kids are having some form of sex, even before they hit the age of fourteen.

If child development experts can tell us that childhood and teenage peer sex, “is not psychologically harmful under ordinary circumstances and is probably a valuable psychosocial experience in developmental terms.”…what else can we take away from this?…

…That the arousal, stimulation and touching of a child’s [or teenagers] genitals, is not abnormal?…That it is normal?…That it is healthy development?…That it is a good thing, for their sexual development?…

The kicker here, is that they specify activity between age mate peers…as being part of “under ordinary circumstances”…But isn’t that just a social construct?…I mean…exactly what, in nature, stops a child and someone significantly older, from having an ordinary circumstance of a sexual relationship, or encounter?

Clearly…it has not been out of the question, nor unthinkable, throughout the history of mankind…and it still happens today, in some places…

What if…western cultures finally grew up, finally put their sexual superstitions aside…and finally allowed normal, healthy, intergenerational relationships to exist as part of ordinary social circumstances?…

…Should we expect trauma and injury, if it is no longer breaking a deep social taboo?…

…After all…a lot of stuff that goes on in other cultures would not be tolerated in western culture…Yet the people actually doing the activities, get along just fine while embracing them…

…And, after all…presumably these children and teenagers, will mostly spend the bulk of their sexual lives, having sex with adults…It has always seemed mightily bizarre to me, that the “experts” try to keep the young away from what they ultimately intend them to have sex with [physically developed adults]…but often find no problem with it, when they get touchy and feely with what the “experts” ultimately want them having nothing to do with [a child’s body]…

That is some extreme mixed up messaging…How do you expect them to not be attracted, to what they have such enjoyable memories of [a child’s body]…while at the same time being solely attracted to what they have been conditioned to shun [the adult body]?…

There is simply no natural line, here…despite that they try to enforce one…and this pursuit is a complete mess.

Now yes…I know, I know…it is not that simplistic…and humans will still have very enjoyable sex, even if they aren’t with their fantasy partner…Many are just overjoyed to be having sex, at all…Fair enough…

…But when you really examine this type of social conditioning…it honestly makes no logical or practical sense.

I have to ask…Is this honestly a good social practice…Aren’t we, as a society, just messing with things that we ultimately have little control over, in the larger picture?…

1000 years from now…all this socially sanctioned interference and manipulation into a person’s private life…it will all be for naught…Everyone who suffered it’s ill consequences will be long dead, robbed of the ability to live while they were still alive…Whomever else theoretically benefited, will also be long dead…and knowledge of what good it allegedly did for them, long forgotten…

…I just hope, if humans have not gone extinct by that time…that the cultures which exist will be far more humane, tolerant and intelligent…than the one I live in, today.

The “Recruiting” Accusation…

……

……………………………………| Perverted Justice Journal | The Vile Files |
……………………………………………
| PLEASE CLICK HERE AND READ |

….

Date: January 31, 2014

…”The Russians Have It Right”…

…”It Should Be Illegal to Recruit Minors”…

Could someone please explain to me… why it is, that the most ignorant, obnoxious and belligerent amongst us… are so frequently the ones who elect themselves as “authorities” on issues concerning others?

It is as though they are some warped type of sage… one who is a living example, of unadulterated ignorance, intolerance and incompetence… a perfect living model, of all that we should not be… for the rest of us, who aspire to be decent human beings worthy of respect….

Here we have two examples…where we sexual minorities are not being talked to…nobody is trying to communicate with us, or trying to understand us…But instead, we are being trash talked…talked down to…demeaned…dehumanized…and made to sound as though “we” are the enemy…as if we were a threat…

…Curiously, one of these fine gentlemen even quotes the infamous “millstone” passage from the bible…as though to imply that we deserve to be killed…or, murdered is really the accurate term, here…

…And “we” are allegedly the social problem, in the face of these fine gentlemen talking about harming and killing us?…

I would just like to point out one observation, with regards to the “recruitment” accusation which we so frequently face…because the mere evocation of such an idea, displays a grotesque misunderstanding of what is going on…

You see…no matter where one falls on the homosexual spectrum…we all tend to share a very stark theme, which you cannot ignore…provided that you take any time at all, to honestly explore our personal histories…

…That theme, is isolation…of being different, and knowing that we were different from the majority…and not even being able to openly talk about it. It is a common experience amongst us, no matter how accepted some forms of homosexuality may be today…that we are commonly isolated during large portions of our lives, due to a world which openly refuses to tolerate us…And we live like this, knowing what we are…in silence. We carry this psychological burden from an early age…commonly not even knowing what to call it, or how to talk about it…but merely understanding, that we had better not admit to it. Privately, it is an elephant in the room which remains there for us, all along.

Now…many homosexual kids today, may have it substantially better…Some may not even experience what a lot of us did, when we were growing up and discovering things about ourselves…But just as much as me, or any other homosexual person…they know by nature, without being told…or shown…or ordered into something by another…or any of the other fantasies people come up with, to explain “where homosexuality came from”…They know what they are attracted towards.

There is no recruitment into homosexuality…There never has been…There may be heterosexuals who have had homosexual experiences…There may be bisexuals, who have swung both ways…But a natural homosexual knows by instinct, what they are attracted towards…and they naturally gravitate towards it.

They don’t have to be told to…It just happens to be that way for them…In fact, if anything…we are more often pained, longing and injured, due to a social atmosphere which refuses to allow us to be who we are…which refuses to let us have, what we so deeply need.

You cannot be recruited, into something which exists beneath your own skin…It is impossible and absurd, to suggest otherwise.

I think it is probably one of the safest bets I could ever make in my life…saying that I believe, if given the chance…most of us who are homosexual and who have never had such an opportunity, would have jumped at the chance to participate in gay youth groups…and various school/social programs, aimed at supporting homosexual kids…so long as we could have safely done so.

A great many of us, almost certainly would have embraced these things…It is the social and peer structure, that so many of us never got to have…never got to benefit or grow from…

…and we never got to have them, precisely because of people like those in the two linked videos.

There is no recruitment involved in being homosexual…

…The only recruitment we commonly succumb to…is that of being bludgeoned into self hatred, and an inability to accept ourselves or live freely. We can be recruited into sexual celibacy, if the social threats are horrible enough…We can even be recruited into heterosexual behavior, marriage and even producing offspring we never wanted, if social expectations are overwhelming enough.

…But being recruited into wanting something so deeply, so passionately…which itself is taboo…ridiculed…demonized…for which it’s embracement means a demeaned life, in the eyes of many?…

How can anybody even think that way?…How can anyone think…that one day you are just walking along, in a world which largely loathes homosexuality…being entirely heterosexual yourself…but then someone offers a homosexual invitation, “and that is all she wrote”…Everything just supposedly goes out the window…including everything you know about the world around you, and presumably your own heterosexuality…because you got offered homosexuality…

That is just dumb…

…People who don’t want it, will continue to not want it…no matter if they have tried it, or not…Heterosexuals can get what they need, from someone of the opposite sex…and that is exactly where they will go.

…Homosexuals cannot get what they need, from someone of the opposite sex…and that is the defining line, which divides homosexuals from heterosexuals.

The only people trying to recruit…are people like those featured in these linked videos.

Being isolated, is a sign that we are not being allowed to be who we naturally are…That is what our experiences of isolation, ultimately boil down to.

Sun News Does Not Like Dr. James Cantor…


Date: January 26, 2014

…Sun News: Pedophilia an Orientation…

…Sun News: Pedophilia an Orientation…

This is Canadian news…and it looks to be hot off the presses…

They are making issues out of Dr. James Cantor, and his statement that pedophilia is an inborn sexual orientation.

Now…for many of us who live with this…the point [that we were born this way] is an indisputable fact…It’s just others, like these two reporters, who have been so deeply conditioned that they cannot wrap their minds around this point.

There are a number of things which ought to be commented on, here…like the older guys summary of pedophilia as “sodomy and torture of children”…Of course, they bemoan what it might legally mean, should “pedophiles” become a protected class, holding equal standing to everybody else in society.

Well…Let’s dissect this “report”, shall we?…

Marissa Semkiw opens by framing it as a controversy, the question “is pedophilia a sexual orientation”…She also evokes “survivors of childhood sexual abuse”, right off the bat…Apparently, they are the ones getting angry over this question…

Then we move on to James Cantor, who says “yes”…”Pedophilia is an inborn condition, not a learned sexual behavior”…

James Cantor: “Nobody chose to be attracted to adults. Nobody chose to be attracted to children.”…etc, etc…

All the research seems to show, that we are wired this way…according to Dr. James Cantor.

Dr. Cantor declined their request for an on screen interview…and given the nature of this “report”, I think I have a pretty good idea why…

Marissa cites another interview from another show, where Cantor says “the way society treats pedophiles is all wrong”…

Dr. Cantor talks about society’s gut reactions, of how “this person is evil”… and “the correct reaction to have, is remove them from society forever”…”is actually not making things better, but making things worse”… All the while, another video is playing… and alternating with the Cantor interview… This video is of an, apparently, stalking pedophile… They even get a close up of his evil eye…

…”We need to be dispassionate, clinical and think rationally about this situation”…

…Apparently, the above comment offended Marissa…

Marissa informs us, that Dr. Cantors research is “far from accepted”…but “the theory is becoming more prominent”…

She cites the American Psychological Associations spectacle over the DSM-5…And how a group of loud, obnoxious and burdensome groups, who wallow in ignorance working to spread ignorance around the world, caused such a public stink over the APA presuming that it might be able to do something scientific, correct and morally right [ie: actually acknowledge pedophilia as an orientation, such as it starkly obviously is]…and how this caused the APA to retreat, and capitulate like a scolded dog…

Apparently, interference with science is not the scandal here, in the mind of Marissa…She seems just peachy, with the fact that ignorance dictates practice, even in this field…

It is outright disgusting…that ignorance and bigotry, can so easily sideline actual research and science…But, I guess Marissa does not understand anything about that.

For the record…Classifying pedophilia as a sexual orientation, does nothing to condone actual sexual relations between an adult and a minor…Since this point of fact is apparently lost on some people, it seemingly needs to be clarified.

Few, if any, of us have been lingering under the impression…that the APA is going to lead us into social acceptance…Heck, the APA has been the social instrument, for the obscene oppression of sexual minorities, including pedosexuals…It is foolish to imagine, that a technical change in the DSM is going to imply the APA is fighting to legalize pedophilia.

They made the change, as I understand/interpret it…not to condone anything…but to more accurately define our state of being…Potentially, this could bring more compassion into the arena…It could lead us away from the cruelties of “aversion therapies”…It could actually get doctors, mental health people, etc…to stop treating us like adversaries, simply on the grounds that we were born and we exist…and whatever all, they automatically presume “must be true” about us.

…These concepts might be a bit too deep for Marissa…I don’t know…

“If such a theory gains acceptance, it could have wide ranging legal consequences.”… And we just can’t have that, can we?… Oh, heavens no!…

A legal scholar is brought on…

Edward Prutschi says it brings up questions, for protections in the employment sphere…

… Imagine that… pedosexuals enjoying the equal employment protection and human rights as everybody else… They seem quite shocked and concerned, over the prospect of having to treat pedosexuals with equality… as human beings, with equal rights… and human rights, too?…

My goodness!…”One may not be able to discriminate against a person, for the mere fact that they are a pedophile, so long as they don’t act on those desires.”…

…Yeah…because their sense of entitlement to discriminate, is so precious to them…

Did he just imply, what I think he implied?…That he thinks it is alarming, people might not be legally able to discriminate against [and abuse, frankly] pedosexuals, when they are obeying the law?

…He is concerned, we might be normalized and integrated into society…

Hmmm…No integration for us if we live in Canada, huh?…

Joe Womback [Sp?], founder of the Canadian Victims of Crime Foundation comes on… and, of course, things suddenly devolve into a distorted face off, between this question posed to us [is pedophilia a sexual orientation] and “the protection of our most vulnerable”…

…Yes…”Save the children!!”…that’s it…

Apparently Joe wants to isolate us from the rest of the community…and this is “erring on the side of caution”…How this has anything to do with anything, is anybody’s guess…as most of the people brought into this “report”, honestly have nothing to say [authoritatively, or otherwise], about the fact that being a pedosexual is a matter of sexual orientation…

…They are just arguing against it, because of phobias surrounding how they imagine society is going to change, over this one simple acknowledgement of truth…Don’t budge and inch, and spite all honest dialogue, just to make sure no brighter future is foreseen to pedosexuals in this world…

…Joe is also working under the delusion, that this is “allowing these individuals back into our community”…as if, there are not untold numbers of us, already in your community, Joe…

I think, Joe is doing what so many other people do…mistaking having this sexual orientation, with being a criminal…It is as if, Joe does not understand, you don’t have to break any laws, in order to be a pedosexual…or a pedophile, if you will.

There is a distinct difference between the question of sexual orientation, and that of the ability [or willingness] to abide by laws and social norms.

Being a pedosexual does not mean that you are a criminal, nor that you have done anything, really…It just means you are sexually oriented, towards a specific sort of human being.

Theo Fleury [an NHL player], claims that this is tantamount to “taking 5000 steps backwards”…And apparently nobody told this hockey player, that this is not a question about passing a law [well, okay…most sexual minorities are legally protected in Canada…So, it’s a bit different there]…What is before us, is a matter of science…and with regards to the APA, a matter of medical practice.

Of course…Theo was a high profile victim of child sexual abuse…So, naturally…Marissa wants to parade him in front of the audience, like Joe…and let the audience soak in their anger, outrage…and frankly, ignorance…

Yes…”Bring forth the wounded”, so that they may rant, rave, plead… and be the token sympathetic avatar, for whom this horrible finding is attacking

Theo does not want this to be accepted… and goes on to express, what is essentially the public plugging its ears, and shouting down this point of fact… Or in other words, ignore its merits, and pretend that it’s all just lies…

This is why, for years I have considered the sex abuse industry to behave on par with the blind furor, in organized religious groups… And I even call it a religion, in its own right.

…”They are right, because they are right, because they say they are right.”…and don’t ever get in their way, with anything that does not fit their predisposed assumptions…or you’ll be sorry.

Is the smarmyness of this “report” at an end?…No?…

Theo says “we live in a sick enough society already”…and if we acknowledge [or pass a law, as he says it] pedophilia is an orientation…we are “taking 5000 steps backwards”…

…because, apparently…knowing true things, being informed and educated…and making decisions based upon sound knowledge, is going against progress, in Theo’s mind…

…They flash a blurred out scene, of kids going into a school building, while Marissa says, “One only hopes, the public will heed Fleury’s words”…

And that is the end of the official report…but, then Marissa and Michael Coren [the show anchor, I expect] go on talking about it…Michael needs to properly express his own distress…

…”[Michael launches with a contemptuous sigh, and rolling of eyes] The contempt that doctor had for ordinary people, with their gut reaction…yeah, when a child is sodomized, raped, tortured…there’s a bit of a gut reaction, isn’t there?”…

…Yeah, sure Michael…I expect there is a gut reaction, when a child is raped, tortured and the like…And I suspect, that you are under the delusion, that pedosexuals do not identify with this gut reaction?…

…But let’s put that bigoted ignorance and hate speech aside…

…Where in any of this, does children being sodomized, raped and tortured fit in?…

The question is one of sexual orientation, and how this can make pedosexuals better understood and approached…

… This is not a debate, over whether or not your community is going to throw your little children into a pit of horny rapists, along with a tube of Astroglide…

No, it is not contemptuous to anybody at all, least of all victims of sex crimes, to better understand pedosexual human beings.

How keeping the public ignorant “better serves victims” [or the public], is something I want to know…Because that sounds about as loony as it gets…Maybe, Michael and Marissa could explain?

Michael calls this piece of propagandist tripe, “a brilliant piece”…

…and we wonder why this planet is going straight to hell, when the talking heads who inform everybody on what to think, cannot even clearly think or understand themselves…

Michael makes an issue, that Dr. Cantor would not be interviewed by Marissa…and she implies it’s probably because Cantor has “seen some of [her] work”…She equates Dr. Cantors work with normalizing, or de-stigmatizing pedophilia…”by saying that you are born with it”…

Finally…Marissa concedes that nobody is trying to remove sanctions, with regards to criminal activity…but, she is horrified of the broad reaching implications, if pedophilia ever gets acknowledged as a sexual orientation…

…Do you ever get the feeling…that certain people are too deeply invested in their own intolerance and hate, to just let go of it [even if it were for the better]?…That is exactly the sense I am getting here…As I so often get, from many of these people [and groups] who push for extreme prohibition and extreme penalties. It’s like, this is all they have ever known…If you take the extreme hate and violent intolerance out of the equation…they simply do not know how to function…It’s like, they are lost without it…And they get all the more frustrated and angry, over the idea, that blind hate and violent intolerance should go away…Do they not understand, those things are bad for society?

In all fairness…Canada is a bit of a unique animal…in that it explicitly says in its Charter of Rights, that a citizens status of sexual orientation is basis for legal protection [so long as they don’t break the law].

What is so preposterous here, though…Is that everybody in that “report” is all up in a huff, over the mere theoretical idea, that pedosexuals might end up being treated equally under the law, within society…and with some degree of common dignity…

… Talk about contempt… Now there, Michael, is real contempt for you…

What Dr. Cantor expressed [that pedophilia is a sexual orientation], is not an expression of contempt towards anybody at all…In fact, if either you or Marissa had bothered to investigate, and actually did your jobs competently…you would have easily found, that Dr. James Cantor has zero intentions of ever helping pedosexuals achieve normalized social status, with all the rights realized by everybody else.

…Good grief…the poor guy gets clobbered from both sides, because he is not really looking to liberate pedosexuals from oppressive laws, either…But, the extreme prohibitionists don’t want to budge an inch, when it comes to treating pedosexuals fairly, and ethically…And, they find what lean crumbs Dr. Cantor is trying to scrape together for pedosexuals [for the furthering of their mental treatment], is getting in the way of their hate and phobia…

…Dr. Cantor is threatening to take away their social scapegoat?…

Okay…This is getting long…I am getting tired…They suddenly have some still picture of a guy, with his face mostly covered….and Michael is blathering on, about not understanding how anyone can be attracted to children…[my sincere condolences, that your tastes have been so horribly stunted, Michael]…I think, it is time to stick a fork in this…

…You can go watch the rest of this tripe…and leave your own comment below, if you like…

Michael gives us his [quite un-professional] rejections of various notions, including being born with this…blah, blah, blah, blah, blah…

This is yellow journalism, by a couple of yahoos, who like listening to themselves talk.

…They did not even address the core points, with any integrity…They just produced seven minutes of dehumanizing propaganda.

They attacked somebody, who made a simple, honest statement…

This is an excellent example, as to why I have such disdain for the mainstream media…

…It is in response to all the contempt and disdain, which they show towards us…They even take it to the extent, of extreme pure idiocy.

Just to note…There are a few things brought up in the last few minutes, which I find intriguing…Does the brain honestly alter, based upon being “sexually abused” as a child?…Maybe it does…

…But, I honestly need to go to bed…My mind is shutting down…So, I shall spell check and post this.

One last note…For the record, I have some degree of respect for Dr. James Cantor…It takes real guts to be out there, even just doing what he is doing…And he is getting clobbered from all sides, for taking this stand. I am not going to embrace everything he finds, or has to say…but I don’t believe what he is presently doing, is without merit.

My impression is, like it is with certain other people who are “working with us”…That they are working under good intentions, within the framework of their own social and psychological conditioning…and they are sticking their necks out, on behalf of finding a better way forward.

Hence…I afford them some slack.

In summary…this “brilliant piece” is nothing but a simple minded hatchet job, stuffed with blatant dramatized visual cues…

Dr. Cantor…I wouldn’t have given these unprofessional bozos an interview, either.

It is painfully obvious, that a true, traditional interview…is the very last thing they honestly wanted.

Religious Trauma Syndrome…

……
….

Date: January 3, 2014

…Direct Episode Link [MP3]…

…Religious Trauma Syndrome – Episode 71…

As some know, I am re-building my “Atheist Media Links” page…which is really an atheist podcast links page…

…While going through some of my more recently discovered links, I found the Life After Faith podcast…and an interesting episode [the most recent one], where the issue of PTSD is discussed in relation to people who were harmed by their past with religion…

I just thought I’d share this episode, as it is an interesting listen…

…I do think it starts spinning a little bit hyperbolic, at a point or two [ie: some offhanded comment about “rape celebration day” in relations to priests abusing children, or the like…I don’t recall exactly how it was phrased].

Largely, I do consider myself past my own issues, over growing up in a dominating religion…Admittedly, I don’t mind talking about it, from time to time…or explaining why, I consider it to have been psychological abuse…and very messed up…and I have likened it, to a psychological form of rape, also…

So, yes…I do understand the PTSD…

Unfortunately, my own expressive tendencies [and personal accounts] seem to sometimes leave others with the impression, that I still carry a lot of baggage over it…I prefer to think of them as old scars…ones I point at and explain every now and then, when the opportunity presents itself and I am in the mood…But I never really figured this was in any way “out of line” [even the few times I might have gotten a bit emotional about it]…

…Never really thought of “that” as PTSD…I suppose, and strongly suspect, that I may suffer from some brand of PTSD…but from religion?…I don’t know…

Potentially, it could have been the basis from where it all started…After all…In my experience, a religious upbringing does not help prepare you for life in the world…In fact, I consider it to be a major inhibition towards success and balance in life…The way I experienced it, anyway.

…Honestly, I think it is the cumulative effect, of living in a world primarily of threat, non-acceptance, shame and hate…one which did not end, when I left the church.

“Rape Culture”: What Do You Think?…

……
….

Date: December 14, 2013

…A plea for a paradigm shift away from America’s rape culture…

…A plea for a paradigm shift away from America’s rape culture…

Note: I don’t consider sexually overbearing behavior [ie: unwanted repeat advances] to be appropriate. Such does not fit into my own code of ethics. I interpret what is described in the linked article, as a byproduct of a culture which isolates and ill equips people of various sexual inclinations, to successfully navigate social relationships…but I want to stress that I am very sympathetic to the complicated circumstances described in the linked article…And I do not want to dismiss or devalue the authors own pain and conflict, in any way. Though I don’t necessarily mean this in the exact same way that others might expect…I find it tragic, that her circumstances found no satisfactory resolution. What follows is not even addressing her personal experience [an account which could make for some deep discussion, no doubt]…but it responds to the increased, broad reaching usage of the term “rape culture”.

“Rape Culture” is a terminology which I more frequently keep running into these days.

Maybe, after a lifetime of witnessing the relentless bludgeoning on male sexuality…and on many forms of sexuality thought to be unconventional…maybe I am just completely sick to death, with the “finger wagging” language…with those accusatory labels thrown about all too liberally, with little care for nuance or level headed honesty and fairness…Maybe I am just predisposed to revulsion towards anything so far reaching, as to dictate an entire culture [or behavior in human sexuality] “a facet of rape”…

…Maybe I have been run dry of tolerance, for those words and behaviors which no longer simply allow humans to harmlessly be humans, without working to sully, degrade, injure and shame them in their humanity?…

…but I see the term “rape culture” as being little more than extreme hyperbole…Just another thing to be clubbed over the head with, for being “too perverted” for somebody else’s tastes.

…And it is offensive…

…It is deeply offensive and injurious for many of us to a degree which cannot even be calculated, for our sexuality [and all expressions or hints of it] to be dictated “some form of rape or assault”. It is not merely an invasion of our entire lives and our very sense of mental balance…but it is a violation of them…Those of us relentlessly targeted by these assaults all throughout our lives…we suffer in very real, very deep ways…from not just what it tares out of our lives…but the extremely ruthless things it inflicts upon us…no matter if you run foul of law and customs, or not.

Sexual outcasts suffer every bit as much psychologically, as genuine rape victims…And I wish more people would come to understand this point…I mean…we have gotten much, much better, with regards to the very base variety of gays and lesbians…and being sympathetic to their plight…what they commonly have to endure, growing up from child to adult and beyond…just for supposedly “being born wrong”…

…What society continues to fail at realizing…is that the many other social groups who are also guilty of supposedly “being born wrong”, go through the exact same journey of psychological hell…Only, our social groups don’t have the Dan Savages of this world to tell us all “it gets better”…Quite the contrary…we have endless parades of politicians and anti sex activists, who relentlessly bash us, assault us with hate speech and dehumanizing hate propaganda, passing and lobbying for laws that target an ever increasing range of our mere presence on this planet.

We have virtually nothing, to act as a social support structure…and what little we do have, there are vicious, ignorant people constantly trying to destroy [even if it is clearly of benefit to all]. So many of us [from child to adult] are just isolated…and even more so, when we really need the personal guidance and support…from people who know and understand, exactly what we are going through.

…Instead, the “role models” society and pop culture chooses to force down our throats, are kidnappers, child rapists and child murderers…people extremely violent and abusive towards children…imposing upon our psyche from a very young age…”this is what we are”…”that is what we will do”…

…A complete load of rubbish…for which I harbor an entirely justified anger towards society…The way it has psychologically raped such a vast range and number of humans [including my kind] for merely being sexual beings…it truly is a crime against humanity, which has far reaching impact on all of society itself.

Will we collectively ever wise up and change course, in the face of such a clearly abysmal failure in human and social relations policy?…Can society even see, what is in its own best interest?

You know…what I dread most…is that all of us are just going to remain in our own self centered mindsets…talking about our own limited range of issues…all the while failing to discover the necessity of reaching out to others…of understanding those others…of valuing those others…of welcoming those others into the fold…of taking everybody’s issues seriously…of affording mutual respect as a cultural default…of actually doing something about the suffering of others [even the unconventional] and the wrong done to them, to help alleviate it

I question whether or not we will collectively rise above the hate and phobia…and realize that it is only hurting everybody, when any of us or all of us remain at each others throats…

…Will you ever see me, or anybody at all like me, for the human being that I am?…Or are you just going to throw around intellectually dishonest terms like “rape culture”, and all the other innuendo and hate speech, to conceal the real individuals that we are?

The USA does not have a rape culture…In fact, just the opposite is true…It has a hyperactive, hyper phobic, hypersensitive culture, ravenously eager to call every sexual thing supposedly out of the ordinary, “rape”, “assault”…”a crime”…”indecent”…”immoral”…”a threatening epidemic”…

If the USA ever finds its intellectual scruples…these bits and pieces of hyperbole will be relegated, to the records of our own embarrassing past…where they can be forgotten…

Because honest people do not need them, and find the harmful usage of them to be offensive

Positive Atheism’s Big Scary List of Jerry Falwell Quotations…


Date: July 9, 2013

01) Scary Jerry Falwell Quotations

Jerry has been dead for a while now, but I am starting to sift through my massive collection of saved links and web pages…and I ran across this page.

These quotes are the sorts of things habitually repeated, by one of the most prominent modern day leaders of the organized christian movement…And millions of people looked up to this guy…They followed his lead.

These examples really put into sobering focus, exactly why the organized and political christian movement is so disturbing.

Jerry Falwell, to my mind, had a very loose grasp on sanity.
