01) Cops FINALLY Give Details On Kenosha Shooting


“Kenosha police are finally giving details to the recent shooting.

After three days of silence, nightly protests, fatal shootings at a protest and a wildcat strike across the sports world, Wisconsin law enforcement officials finally offered their first version of the Kenosha Police shooting of Jacob Blake.

On Wednesday night, the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation said the incident stemmed from a domestic dispute.
Officers arrived and attempted to arrest Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, and used a Taser in a failed attempt to stop him, the DCI said. Blake walked around his vehicle, “opened the driver’s side door, and leaned forward,” the agency said.

01) Merlin S1 E1: The Dragon’s Call

“In this episode:
With the arrival of a young warlock in Camelot a legend is born; Merlin.

Series DescriptionMerlin will one day be the greatest wizard that the world will ever know, but for now, he is just a young man, geeky and awkward, who must keep his talent hidden in a kingdom where magic is banned or face certain death.

GenreDrama

CastColin Morgan, Bradley James, Angel Coulby, Katie McGrath, Richard Wilson, Anthony Head, John Hurt

Director James Hawes”

I’m trilled to find this series to share.

This is the beginning episode of Merlin…a popular BBC series that went on for five seasons.

Asa Butterfield [super cute here!] makes at least two appearances.

This is a good series, even if it is uneven in some regards.

The CGI is not always great…There is the occasional tacky episode…

…but don’t let any dorky moments fool you…this is still a good quality show…even if it’s not always the deepest.

I’ve read reviewers of this series say that it would likely appeal to Harry Potter fans…Which I think is a fair assessment.

What if the Child Appears to Enjoy It? Moral Attitudes Toward Adult–Child Sex Among Men With and Without Pedohebephilia…

01) What if the Child Appears to Enjoy It? Moral Attitudes Toward Adult–Child Sex Among Men With and Without Pedohebephilia

“Abstract

This study attempted to measure cognitions about adult–child sex by approaching the issue from a perspective of moral attitudes. We assessed ratings regarding direct and indirect harmfulness, nonconsent, exploitation, and differences in adults’ and children’s sexualities based on a description of adult–child sex without apparent child discomfort among an online sample of 120 pedohebephilic and 89 nonpedohebephilic German-speaking men. The results showed that only 7.5% among pedohebephilic men had equal or less permissive attitudes than the average control, while 4.5% of nonpedohebephilic men had equal or more permissive attitudes than the average pedohebephilic man. Both groups did not, however, differ in their appraisal that children may suffer indirect harm via stigmatization. The findings also indicate that the moral perception of adult–child sex shows little differentiation among German-speaking laypeople. We discuss the relevance of these findings for clinical practice and propose ideas for subsequent research.

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.

Rand Paul’s MELTDOWN Shows He Doesn’t Believe In Democracy…


Date: August 29, 2020

01) Rand Paul’s MELTDOWN Shows He Doesn’t Believe In Democracy


“Rand Paul is a lying political hack for the Republican Party.

Protesters harassed and intimidated attendees of President Donald Trump’s Republican National Convention speech in Washington D.C. as they filtered out on Thursday — with an elderly couple, a bus full of people, and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) all falling victim.
Videos showed the attendees leaving the speech as protesters swarmed them, screamed obscenities, and flipped them off — with some attendees experiencing violence.
