01) “I Despise Myself for Thinking about Them.” A Thematic Analysis of the Mental Health Implications and Employed Coping Mechanisms of Self-Reported Non-Offending Minor Attracted Persons

“ABSTRACT

‘Non-offending pedophiles’ or ‘minor attracted persons’ are individuals who suppress an attraction to children. Previous analyses of this population’s mental illness employed overt self-report methods, limited by social desirability. Additionally, studies assessing the coping mechanisms employed to remain offense-free are underpowered; understanding of these would facilitate the rehabilitation of prior offenders. A thematic analysis of coping mechanisms and mental illness was conducted on 5,210 posts on the ‘Virtuous Pedophiles’ forum. Four themes emerged for coping mechanisms: Managing risk and attraction to children, Managing mood, Managing preferences prosocially and Friends, family and relationships, with 13 subthemes. Five themes emerged for mental ill-health, including: Addiction, Anxiety, Depression, Self-hatred/Self-harm/Suicide and Other. Self-hatred/Self-harm/Suicide accounted for almost a third of discussed mental ill-health. These results highlight the severity of mental ill-health amongst this population and the coping mechanisms employed to remain offense-free.

KEYWORDS: Suppression, pedophilia, minor attracted person, mental ill-health, coping mechanisms”

01) The Eviction Crisis Begins, Houston Hit Hard


“The eviction crisis has begun in Houston, Texas.

Houston (CNN)Twenty-month-old Israel Rodriguez’s tiny head peeked over the second-story Houston apartment railing. His 4-year-old brother, Fabian, emerged next to him, holding a package of toilet paper and an empty baby bottle.

Moments earlier, Deputy Bennie Gant of the Harris County Constable’s Office had knocked on their door to evict them and their parents.
“Constable!” Gant announced.
The father, Israel Rodriguez Sr., answered the door.

Facebook Announces New Ad Ban…

01) Facebook Announces New Ad Ban


“Facebook will ban all new political ads in the week before the election.

Facebook this week said it would bar political ads in the seven days before the presidential election. That could prevent dirty tricks or an “October surprise” and give watchdogs time to fact-check statements. But rather than responding with glee, election officials say the move leaves them worried.

Included in the ban are ads purchased by election officials — secretaries of state and boards of elections — who use Facebook to inform voters about how voting will work. The move effectively removes a key communication channel just as millions of Americans will begin to navigate a voting process different from any they’ve experienced before.

“Every state’s elections office has a very small communications office that is doing everything that they can to get the word out about the election,” said Gabe Rosenberg, the communications director for Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill (who is not related to this reporter). “This just makes it a little bit harder, for, as far as I can see, no real gain.”

Being Sexually Attracted to Minors: Sexual Development, Coping With Forbidden Feelings, and Relieving Sexual Arousal in Self-Identified Pedophiles…

01) Being Sexually Attracted to Minors: Sexual Development, Coping With Forbidden Feelings, and Relieving Sexual Arousal in Self-Identified Pedophiles

“Abstract

This article aims to provide more insight into pedophilic attraction and risk and protective factors for offending in nonclinical pedophiles. Fifteen participants were interviewed about sexuality, coping, and sexual self-regulation. Many participants struggled with acknowledging pedophilic interest in early puberty and experienced psychological difficulties as a result. Furthermore, many committed sex offenses during adolescence when they were still discovering their feelings. Early recognition of risk factors and early start of interventions seem vital in preventing offending. Moreover, results suggest that risk for offending can be diminished by creating more openness about pedophilia and by providing pedophiles with social support and control.”

hikari: The Ethics of Pedophilia…

01) The Ethics of Pedophilia [Pt 1]

“[PLEASE TURN ON SUBTITLES]
This is a video based on an essay I wrote last year. This first part might be a bit dry, as it mainly consists of reviewing and responding to academic research on adult-child sex, which as we shall see, almost entirely focuses on “abuse” narrative. Part 2 will focus more on the actual moral debate.

This is my first time making a video like this, so I’m sorry if it’s not great. How is the audio? Should I remake this video adding in the other Hornor studies, or is it better the way I have it? I figured if people were really interested in the studies, they could just read them themselves, and I didn’t want the video to be too dry.
I’ll add a download link for a full transcript and additional footnotes soon.
Hikari”

02) The Ethics of Pedophilia [Pt 2]

“[PLEASE TURN ON SUBTITLES]
Hello everyone,
I’m sorry it took me so long to upload Part 2. I had all sorts of difficulties making this part, almost completely losing my data on more than one occasion. Finally, it’s here.
A complementary essay, which contains the script for the entire series is available to download here https://anonfiles.com/v0icv9N9of/EthicsEssay_pdf. It also contains some additional footnotes.
Sincerely,
Hikari”

As a homosexual BoyLover, I’ve taken strong issue with the way so many “research studies” have commonly tended to judge “pedophilia”, based upon the accounts of female rape victims…and act as though this is somehow applicable in any way to the more “boys being boys” experiences, which are far more in line with the man boy sexual experiences.

In addition…the way they commonly treat wanted, happy experiences as if they were the plague in these studies, is a straight up outrage.

These types of studies have generally always employed dishonest skewing…They are tantamount to lies.

01) Armed Pro-Trump Extremists Arrested on Their Way to Kenosha To “Loot” and “Shoot”


“Two armed Pro-Trump militants were arrested on their way to Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Federal agents arrested two Missouri men in Pleasant Prairie after receiving a tip they were coming to Kenosha to possibly “loot” and “pick people off.”

The FBI tracked Michael Karmo and Cody Smith to the La Quinta hotel in Pleasant Prairie on Sept. 1.

Investigators said they searched the men’s vehicle and hotel room, where FBI agents recovered an Armory AR-15 assault rifle, a Mossberg 500 AB 12-Gauge shotgun, two handguns, a silencer, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, knives, body armor, a drone and other materials.

01) Marshalls Kill Man Who Shot Trump Supporter in Portland, Michael Forest Reinoehl


“US Marshalls have killed the man who shot a Trump supporter in Portland.

A Portland man who was killed Thursday night while authorities attempted to apprehend him on a murder warrant appeared to admit he was responsible for the fatal shooting of a supporter of a right-wing group during clashes between pro-Trump groups and left-wing protesters in the Oregon city.

The US Marshals said a task force was attempting to arrest Michael Forest Reinoehl in Washington state. He was wanted by the Multnomah County Circuit Court on a charge of second-degree murder.

“Reinoehl was allegedly involved in an August 29 shooting incident in Portland, Oregon, that resulted in a death,” US Marshals said.
