Vigilantes Aren’t Heroes; They’re Criminals…

01) Vigilantes Aren’t Heroes; They’re Criminals

“By Michael McKay

I was recently lectured by someone on social media who felt compelled to defend vigilantes who target sex offenders. He claimed that “vigilante” was some sort of badge of honor, and that no vigilante would ever harm innocent people. He then qualified that statement by adding, “And if they did, they wouldn’t be vigilantes any more. So, you’re using the term incorrectly.”

I beg to differ.”

The Fight Against Racially Motivated 911 Calls…

01) The Fight Against Racially Motivated 911 Calls


“The hashtag #LivingWhileBlack went viral on social media in the last two years as videos proliferated of incidents around the nation in which white people called police on black people going about their everyday activities.

The most well-publicized episodes came last year, including two black men confronted by Philadelphia police after asking to use a Starbucks bathroom without first having made a purchase; a black Yale graduate student questioned by cops for napping in a dorm common room; and a black man in Oakland whose wife filmed his encounter with a woman who dialed 911 to say he was illegally barbecuing in a park.

A lesser known one took place in 2017 in Grand Rapids, Mich., on a June afternoon when squad cars showed up at a public park during a graduation party. The event was permitted, the attendees were mostly black, and they said a noise complaint against them was really about white residents who were uncomfortable with a large gathering of black people. That instance, and another last September in which police handcuffed two unarmed black 11-year-old brothers after a phone call reported a teen with a gun, added to complaints about race and 911 calls, as well as policing, in western Michigan.

“Deviant”…

…What is “deviant”?…

…other than a bit of spooky language, to evoke alarm and infer something is “wrong”?…

Is there such a thing as a “sexual deviant”?…

…honestly?…

Oh sure…we have our dogmatically enforced, social norms…but social norms all to frequently conflict with the natural state of being human…

Short of being born without sex organs, or being born with an extreme deformity…there is virtually nothing, which removes a human of any age, from the sexual arena…or the sexual appeal of others…

This is because, it is in our biological nature, to explore and behave in a sexually active manner.

…There is no “magic age”, where this all begins…

It simply exists within us, as an intrinsic part of us…which we now can trace back, and clearly exhibit, all the way from pre-birth…

…The male fetus has a clear and discernible sex drive…

They just typically do not call it a “sex drive”, because acknowledging the natural sexuality which exists within a child, in a society not designed around any sense of responsibility to respect and nurture that child’s sexuality…is likely to get an extreme and wrathful response, from groups and individuals who harbor, spread and exploit a sense of social panic and phobia, surrounding topics of human sexuality…

…Some of these people hold substantial political influence…and can cause a grave deal of very serious, ill consequence, to anyone who gets in the way of their own, social agendas…

…and they are much to busy spreading the phobia, terrorizing the public with the stereotypes, stigmas and other such propaganda…to ever be bothered with learning about the topics they fear…and learning how to best approach and deal with them…

When you don’t care about the facts, and only focus on the phobia…all the facts and findings inconvenient to your own social agenda, get “lost” and “forgotten” about…as the volume gets turned up on spooky language, stereotypes, stigmas and scapegoating…

A proverbial…mental, “slight of hand”…designed to trick and mislead…to appeal towards and play upon your emotions…as though emotional outbursts will somehow, “out weigh” the sound truth…

…As though the truth will ever cease being important, if you get a large enough number of people worked up, into a frenzied rage…

Let me ask you a question…

If the estimated one in four girls, and one in six boys, is…being “sexually molested” during their childhood…and there are millions of children even just in the U.S.A….

…how well does this bode, for the dogmatically held idea…that sexual interest in children even “is” a deviant behavior in the human species?…

If it “is” happening on that level of frequency, do we even have any justification in calling it “deviant”?…

…What does it “deviate” from?…because it clearly does not deviate from typical, human sexual behavior, if it is happening that much…

…and I guarantee you, all of this “molesting” is not the work of some highly exclusive, ultra private group…consisting of a few dozen “pedophiles” who travel the globe, goosing every cute boy and girl they come across…

…It is the “every man”…the “common” folk…even the people who outwardly rebuke the very activity…who are doing it…

In any civilized society, where the sexuality of children (and youth) is openly acknowledged and addressed in a mature, level headed manner…

…children are typically allowed freedom to sexual experience, and sexual expression…and like any human being, they take to it very enthusiastically…so long as they are being respected, and not personally being brutalized or tormented, within the context of these sexual experiences…

Age is only a number…

Sexual contact between an adult and a child is not…nor has it ever been, universally unaccepted…nor universally condemned…It has been highly valued, in many diverse cultures throughout history…

We only learn that “these kinds of things” are not socially acceptable within our own culture, after years of being exposed to direct (some very harsh) and subliminal messages…until the day comes in which we personally perceive the culturally imposed stigma…and the grave consequence for “offending” that stigma…

…and, this is accompanied by a deafening taboo…one which possesses it’s own sort of phobia…lest anyone ever become so “wickedly” emboldened, to actually speak of such things…

…but, in an atmosphere where no such sexual superstitions exist…children and adults will engage each other in sexual touch and pleasure…and they will quite happily return to each other as sexual lovers, in a long term relationship…so long as they are both comfortable and happy in that relationship…

This is a constant, repeating and understood truth, in human sexuality…

…Age is no barrier to anything…

…So, is this “deviant”?…

…Only if being human, is the same thing as being “deviant”…

It is “funny”, how many of our cultures celebrate the idea of cultural diversity…which is just another term, denoting that we are one large gaggle of humans, who constantly deviate from any one set of norms…yet we cant wrap our collective mind around the concept of a truly comprehensive, sexual diversity…

The fact that we do not conform, in any number of millions of possible ways…we call “that” a, “strength”…an “asset”…”good”…”a positive change for the future”…

…but, where taboos, superstitions and lust for social power are concerned…well…”those” bits of diversity aren’t diversity at all…No…they are “deviancy”…

…There is no celebration of that diversity…There is only that “celebration”, of wallowing in the phobias…exploiting vulnerable minorities…a frenzy of political “feeding at the trough”…

Are we ever going to learn, that human sexuality is part of who we are?…that it “is” us?…that it is not going away?…

…and that if we never learn how to effectively, ethically, logically and maturely interact with it…we are just going to continue on, making a mess of things…and turning this into a far more complicated problem, than it ever should have been in the first place…

…I am a pedosexual…

…but I am no deviant…for I am as normal and natural a human being, as a human being comes…

The biggest difference between “me”, and your typical, “normal” adult…is that I will talk about the exact same type of human experiences, which we nearly all share in common…to one degree or another…

…where as, most people are far to psychologically controlled, to ever muster up the honesty and integrity it requires, for them to outwardly express that…yes, “they” are like this also…”They” have noticed and experienced the same thing, even if only on rare instances…

…They have had these thoughts and desires, too…

Books that help bereaved children…

01) Books that help bereaved children

“As a new wave of emotional wellbeing books for children hits the market, meet Clare Shaw, an author of therapeutic stories covering tricky subjects such as bereavement.

“All too often I find myself reading another article around child mental health and the ‘crisis’ we now find ourselves in. Reports that one in eight children in England have a mental health disorder. Yet, only a third receive the treatment they need. These figures make for upsetting reading.

“My greatest fear is that every child has worries and emotions that they often can’t understand or control. These feelings could turn into something bigger and more troublesome as the child grows, but in the right way, at the right time, could so simply be relieved while still young. I wanted to find a way that could help and writing appears to be my way.”

02) Love Will Never Die: Helping children through bereavement

“Following the death of a loved one, it is vital that children have the opportunity to grieve. Using direct but child-friendly language, this book addresses the mixed emotions felt by a child during that process. It offers support and understanding alongside areas where the child can express themselves through writing and drawing.”
