01) Bernie Sanders Spars With Mick Mulvaney Over Trump’s Immoral Budget


“During a budget committee meeting, Bernie Sanders took the time to call out Trump’s Budget Director, Mick Mulvaney. Bernie asked him to explain the moral reasoning behind cuts to social safety net programs we desperately need alongside simultaneous tax cuts for the wealthy. As expected, Mulvaney didn’t have a persuasive response, because—shocker—this level of greed is unjustifiable.

The Prevention Project: Interview with Dr. Allyson Walker’s to Discuss their MAP Resiliency research…

01) Interview with Dr. Allyson Walker’s to Discuss their MAP Resiliency research

“In this interview, Dr. Walker explains the results of their research studying resiliency in Minor Attracted Persons (MAPs) also referred to as pedophiles. A discussion of their findings as well as the distinction between contact vs. anti-contact pedophilia is explored, along with pedophilia being a type of sexual orientation.”

Nobody deserves the kinds of abuse touched on, in this podcast…”anti contact” or otherwise…

…And there are many great MAP communities online…B4U-ACT and Virtuous Pedophiles are but two of them…

…Just because they don’t all have the same “party line”, doesn’t mean they aren’t great.

My roots are in BoyChat…One of the best damn forums the internet has ever seen…And I would have it no other way.

Craig Harper: Let’s talk about sex (dolls)…

01) Let’s talk about sex (dolls)

“Recent conversations, though, have turned to whether those who use sex dolls pose a risk to women and children. One issue with these conversations, though, is that they aren’t conversations at all. They tend to be ideologically driven rants, with dissenters being shouted done and haunted out of the conversation.

For the remainder of this essay, my aim is to set out the arguments and evidence in relation to both sides of this debate.

A team led by Milton Diamond examined the effects of pornography consumption on rates of sexual abuse, and found support for the cathartic effect hinted at by Ferguson and Hartley. Diamond’s team drew upon a period in Czech law whereby the ownership of pornography (including material involving children) was legal. They reported a significant reduction in rates of sexual abuse during this time, which echoed similar trends in Denmark and Japan in relation to the sexual abuse of children.

Diamond and his collaborators stopped short of suggesting that so-called pornographic material involving real children should be legalized. Instead, they argued that artificially-produced material might serve as a useful preventative substitute for some people with sexual interests in children who are actively trying to not offend against real children.”

Mark Griffiths, a distinguished professor of behavioural addictions, emphasises six characteristics that could indicate that somebody engaging in a particular behaviour is ‘addicted’: salience, mood modification, conflict, tolerance, relapse, and withdrawal.

Along with several colleagues, Griffiths has developed the Problematic Pornography Consumption Scale, in which these six characteristics are statistically represented.

Interesting article.

Steemit/Dtube vs. YouTube…

01) Steemit/Dtube vs. YouTube


https://steemit.com/

https://steemit.com/video/@heimindanger/introducing-dtube-a-decentralized-video-platform-using-steem-and-ipfs

https://d.tube/ [Does not seem to be working, at present.]”


WTF is D-Tube & Steemit.. & Why You SHOULD Care:

Apparently…Dtube is built on javascript…Not sure if that’s a good thing, or not.

I think you have to use a browser like FireFox, in order to fully access these websites [open an account, etc.].

Not sure how viable Dtube and Steemit are, as platforms for MAPs to be on…But I’m intrigued by the possibility of a new video hosting website…where, theoretically, you wont get censored.

The whole “getting paid structure”, confuses me…Somehow, being tied to crypto currency “provides the money”?…

…I just don’t get that…Where is the primary service [and hence, income] coming from?

A service that runs on ads, makes sense…but this?…

…You just write/blog…upload videos…vote and comment…and magically, there is currency there to pay you for your efforts?…

Don’t get me wrong…I’m not planning on making a go at professional media creation…

…I’ve just always thought the crypto currency scene comes off…like a Ponzi scam of some sort.

I’m not interested in it, for making money…but I’ve tried to do reading on things like Bitcoin, to attempt understanding it…how people are “mining” it…

…I kind of get parts of it…but I still don’t see where real life value is getting pumped into the crypto currency market…

…It’s like a corporation, without any physical assets…just stock shares, and a mission to assist in purchases.

When they release new coins…how do they get their value?…Who has paid for it?
