“Oh but she’s so moral isn’t she!? Think of the children!”
Note: Between the time I wrote these comments and the time I posted them, Blair invited me to a debate on her channel.
For several reasons, I do not do media in a confrontational setting…I don’t even do much media of my own, anymore.
I want to get back into creating media, but it’s complicated. Whatever bits of media I do put out there, are “spur of the moment” stuff, when I’m feeling up to it. I’ve been in ill physical health, most of my life…This has a tremendous impact on me, and can be far worse some days than others. Some days you wake up, and it’s hard to walk, speak, or even put together a coherent though…Every now and then, there are spurts of roaring back, and I’m back on top of my craft…This has become increasingly rare.
It’s impossible to gage how things will be, from one day to the next…which is the primary reason I don’t put myself out there, for this kind of media…It’s very unlikely to be productive.
I’m not in the business of debating…I’m in the business of sharing information, and building a kind of MAP ethos.
I sometimes get mocked and ridiculed for this…called a coward, etc…But keep in mind…live debates in front of a webcam, were never part of my plan, to begin with…I never sought or offered that…And it in no way discredits what I do.
I have far deeper, more serious reason to safeguard myself and this subject, than most people have to even care, while attacking what I do. I will not engage in anything, which I feel is likely to be unproductive, or poses the chance to cause damage.
However…I generally remain available, for open interaction via text.
This video is fair…
Blair’s original video is bankrupt of substance…It displays a painfully shallow understanding…And it doesn’t really even give any excuse, as to why Blair did the video, or presumably wants MAPs [and intelligent speech about them], and people who talk rationally about childhood sexuality, gone from YouTube…
…It really amounts to…”There they are!…What are we going to do about it?”…
At no point does she contemplate holding a dialogue with MAPs…She even dehumanizes these two people she features, and presumably MAPs in general, by comparing them to roaches.
To no avail…I was trying to make a point to her, and get her to at least acknowledge that she dehumanized other human beings…and that there is a difference between the state of being a MAP, and the state of being a “child molester”.
…It only garnered a smug response from her…
Blair…I implore you to acknowledge the distinctions noted above, and apologize to the MAP community.
You know you’ve crossed a line, here…You cannot possibly not realize this.

“Dr. Jordan B Peterson answers a concerned mother seeking advice concerning her children’s recent exposure to certain subjects of knowledge. The worry of the mother, in essence, is WHAT exactly is being taught, yet more importantly, HOW it’s being taught.”

Here we have a person on Twitter, asking his followers to report my Twitter account “for pedophilia and child rape”…
Being a pedophile who uses Twitter, is not against the Twitter terms of service…so, it’s a complete non-issue.
…The child rape allegation is a complete lie, and a smear.
I politely engaged with his friend, the day before…following her participation in a vicious feeding frenzy, aimed at Nigel Oldfeild.
His friend was aggressive, abusive, behaving like a hysteric, accusing me of raping children [and alleging I’d admitted to such]…And, she immediately turned around, attempting to distort the exchange, with selective screen captures of the exchange. She was fraudulently trying to strum up outrage against me, on Twitter.
I stood up for myself, and responded thoughtfully, honestly and instructively, to her barrage of accusations…She blocked me, after I realized what she was attempting to do to me.
Then this guy comes onto the scene…and basically does the same kind of hostile accusations…To which I calmly responded, once again…After not too much time, he also blocked me…He could not produce a valid citation link, where I had admitted to raping children…[which makes sense, because I’ve never raped a child, and such an admission does not exist]…
After he ran off in a huff, Kamil Beylant shared a capture of this tweet with me…and established that we have yet another practitioner of back biting, smear campaigning attacks, from a place of hiding, concealment and shelter from valid critique.
…I don’t need to append any labels to these types of people…because their behavior is damning and shameful enough, on it’s own.
To Those Inclined to Behave Like This:
It’s important that you understand a few things…
…Making false allegations against people, is a crime in most places.
If this ever evolves into any dangerous situation offline…you may be held responsible for it, and even criminally charged for incitement to violence [or murder]…You can also be sued in a civil court, by the person you have targeted.
As to Twitter…who do you think you are fooling?…
Any Twitter authority you appeal to, can check the exchange we just had…They can directly see, that I was cordial, attentive, clear and thorough…that I never did what you claim I did…that I soundly refuted your accusations, but you were too hysterical to comprehend it…
In short, they will be able to tell that your complaint is bogus…And anyone of moderate intelligence, should be able to decipher this much.
The Twitter authority will also know that I was not stalking or harassing you, as I was solely responding to your abusive tweets against me…Which I have a right to do, especially while you are choosing to remain engaged with me.
It’s transparent, that you are making false allegations.
In My Opinion:
People who perform these malicious smear campaigns should lose their Twitter account, and be banned from Twitter permanently.
If the person targeted by them requests such, Twitter should turn over any identifying information to any ongoing legal investigations.
These people should be sued, and criminally charged for malicious misconduct, including malicious interference with the human right of communication, and the malicious act of endangerment by smearing the character of another person.
These people are engaged in scummy, indefensible behavior.

Water. Turn on the faucet and it’s always there. Without it we perish. But how safe is our tap water? In this special report narrated by Joe Morton, NOVA investigates what happened in Flint, Michigan, when local officials changed the city’s water source to save money, but overlooked a critical treatment process. As the water pipes corroded, lead leached into the system, exposing the community—including thousands of children—to dangerous levels of poison. NOVA uncovers the science behind this manmade disaster— from the intricacies of water chemistry to the biology of lead poisoning to the misuse of science itself. NOVA follows ordinary citizens and independent scientists who exposed the danger lurking in Flint’s water and confronted those who turned a blind eye. And discover the disturbing truth that reaches far beyond Flint—water systems across the country are similarly vulnerable. How can we protect ourselves from poisoned water?”

“City sculptor Alex Gardega — seething over the “Fearless Girl” statue being placed across from Wall Street’s “Charging Bull” — has decided to retaliate with a work of his own.
Gardega created a statue of a small dog, titled “Pissing Pug,” and his sloppily crafted pooch takes direct aim at “Fearless Girl” — or, at least, at her left leg.
“This is corporate nonsense,” Gardega told The Post of “Fearless Girl,” saying it was put opposite artist Arturo Di Modica’s famed bull as a publicity stunt by a Boston-based financial firm.
“It has nothing to do with feminism, and it is disrespect to the artist that made the bull,” he said. “That bull had integrity.”
And the guy who made the bull, is suing over this…
I don’t know…I can see where they are coming from. Seems rather silly, though…Not sure it’s something to get that mad over.
I’d be more concerned over the insane display, of a small girl standing in front of a charging bull…There’s a very bad message in there, if you know what a bull is capable of…and I bet we all do.
All the same, they probably should have abided by the original arrangements, instead of extending them.
Changing people’s art, is a touchy kind of area…especially when it alters the meaning, or imposes a different message.

“Sam Harris gives a lecture about the dangers of believing things without requiring evidence. Faith is commonly known as a virtue among religious people but Sam Harris argues that taboos left unquestioned can lead to unnecessary suffering of human beings.”
