It’s not the fake news that bothered me, so much as all the fake candidates.

01) It’s A Republican Campaign Ad Crazy-Off!


“A Republican candidate for Georgia governor brags about his conservative credentials in a new ad released Wednesday, saying he has a “big truck” to “round up criminal illegals.”

Brian Kemp, the current secretary of state, is fresh off another ad in which he points a double-barreled shotgun at a teenage boy asking to go on a date with one of his daughters. Viewers complained to a local NBC affiliate about the ad, to which Kemp responded that “liberals in the media are losing their minds off a fake controversy.”

But now Kemp seems to be coming back for more controversy. In his new, and totally-not-compensating-for-anything ad, Kemp shows off his big chainsaw, big collection of big guns, and his big truck.

Synopsis: A human child raised by wolves, must face off against a menacing tiger named Shere Khan, as well as his own origins.”

Child Sex Dolls Pulled by Amazon in Britain Amid Abuse Concerns…

01) Child Sex Dolls Pulled by Amazon in Britain Amid Abuse Concerns

“Now, online retail giant Amazon has announced it has pulled child sex dolls from sale. In a statement by the company’s spokesperson, it was announced that “the products in question are no longer available.”

“All Marketplace sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who don’t will be subject to action including potential removal of their account,” an Amazon spokesman said.”

I had no idea Amazon actually allowed such a thing to be listed…

…Given their history, I’d have expected these prudes to shut down such listings on their website, immediately upon discovery.

A number of things can be said about this short article…Alas…I believe I’ve already expressed them all…

Silicon dolls as a “gateway” to child rape:

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) [and like organizations] making this insinuation, are standing in proverbial quicksand.

If silicon in the general shape of a child [or small adult, or dwarf…or even a mythical creature] constitutes “dangerous proxies that desensitize”…Then what stops them from arguing this same standard applies to any sex toy, where the user is simultaneously fantasizing about having sex with a child?

There is no justification in the argument, that a product of a different size, color, texture, whatever, does not serve the exact same purpose.

…A person having sex with an adult sized doll, may be fantasizing about raping mentally disabled adults…or adults in a coma…or paralyzed adults…or children who are very large for their age…or even just a regular child, while ignoring the physical aspects of the doll…

What stops these people from arguing…that a person with these urges merely openly discussing them, is not a “dangerous proxy”?

It seems to me…once they connect a prosecutable offense with something like a silicon doll…They’ve already crossed a line, where they can prosecute anything…for any reason.

Finnish Supreme Court Rules Sex With 10 Year-Old Girl Not Rape…

01) Finnish Supreme Court Rules Sex With 10 Year-Old Girl Not Rape

“Finland’s Supreme Court has denied an appeal in a sexual abuse case of a 10-year-old girl, ruling it as aggravated abuse rather than rape.

The court ruled that there was no evidence to suggest that the sexual encounter involved violence or that the child was incapacitated in any way.

The case resulted in a widespread national debate last year. Legal scholars expressed shock over the finding that the act was not against the victim’s will and did not involve violence.”

Are people so detached from the realities of human sexuality…that they are unaware, adults and kids can eagerly get it on with each other…and be mutually quite happy about it?…

…Well…yes…Of course they are…

…Gross ignorance rules the modern day.
