“The former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential hopeful made the comments at a dinner held by LGBT+ organisation The Centre, where she received an award for her commitment to equality.
During her acceptance speech, she once again echoed her famous “gay rights are human rights” slogan, and criticised the current US government for not speaking out against the Russian state of Chechnya.
She said: “In recent weeks, we’ve heard terrifying accounts from Chechnya of gay and bisexual men being taken from their homes and families, tortured, and even killed.”
“Chechyna has opened the first concentration camp for homosexuals since Hitler, where campaigners say gay men are being tortured with electric shocks and beaten to death.
It comes after it was claimed 100 gay men had been detained and three killed in Chechnya last week.
A report by Novoya Gazeta said authorities had set up several camps where homosexuals are killed or forced to promise to leave the republic.
One of the camps is reportedly at the former military headquarters in the town of Argun.”
“Ramzan Kadyrov, President of Chechnya, has publicly declared that he wants all LGBT people in the country to be eliminated by May 26, which marks the start of Muslim holiday, Ramadan.
British Foreign Prime Minister, Alan Duncan, confirmed the threat during yesterday’s Parliament hearing: “Human rights groups report that these anti-gay campaigns and killings are orchestrated by the head of the Chechen republic, Ramzan Kadyrov.”

“ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND – FULL AudioBook | by Lewis Carroll – Adventure & Fantasy | Greatest Audio Books V2 – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) (commonly known as Alice in Wonderland), tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar and anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic in ways that have given the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children. It is considered to be one of the most characteristic examples of the “literary nonsense” genre, and its narrative course and structure have been enormously influential, especially in the fantasy genre. (Summary adapted from wikipedia.org)”

A number of years back, probably six or seven, I made the calculated decision to abandon advocating for any age of legality, with regards to human sexuality. To be fair, I never had a firm answer to this question.
I consider the nature of sexual activity to be of far greater importance, than biological age.
I also consider Age of Consent laws, at best, to be redundant, where it comes to protecting minors from brutality…because there are already laws to address sexual brutality…And at it’s worst, I recognize it as inhumane oppression, ripping apart lovers.
As a matter of genuine, historical fact…Age of Consent Law was created in order to allow the state to prosecute, in cases where the state designated “victim” refused to testify against their lover…
This is the true essence of Age of Consent Laws…They exist to seize control over human rights…As such, I straight out condemn them.
I don’t play into any games, where people want me to pick an age…because I reject the standard, and it’s premise.
In addition…most people just use it as propaganda fodder, when a MAP does give a low age…So why bother?
As a realist…I understand Age of Consent law is not leaving us, anytime soon.
…But I’m not going to play the numbers game, or pretend that it is anything other than it is.
My ultimate answer is…Humans are sexual beings, and humans have a right to their own sexuality.
Words in law books cannot rewrite the laws of nature, nor rewrite the nature of human relationships…And they are foolishly grasping at the breeze, in attempting to do so.
Age of Consent is a fools dream, for power mongers with a superiority complex.
Before anyone jumps down my throat over the following, let me clarify…
…I do understand, one of the genuine reasons given for Age of Consent law, was to allow for sexually brutalized children to no longer have to take the witness stand in a courtroom, and face their abuser…Hence, they lowered the standard of conviction to mere proof that anything sexual ever happened.
…The problem arose, when they started using these laws to railroad people into prison, even when their so called “victims” were objectively their lovers, who even testified in court on their behalf…outraged at what the legal system was doing to not just their lover…but to themselves, as that persons lover…and as someone forced to assume the role of “victim”.
The latter type of case is just dead wrong…That is not justice…It’s injustice…It’s inhumanity.
There is no way under the sun, that a better system cannot be created to deal with traumatized, sexually brutalized children in the courtroom.
Age of Consent is simply a monstrosity, which spreads the suffering and impoverishment around…It does not work.

“Despite radio host Alex Jones’s penchant for peddling brazen conspiracy theories, lawyers for the far-right firebrand claim he’s just a performance artist playing a character.”
Alex Jones publically acknowledges, that what he does is an act…
Alex and Bill…this has been quite the interesting week.

“Speakers’ Corner, Sydney, Australia. Also look for ‘Christian versus atheist (2) when they go at it again. To see more of Ray or Peter (Peter is the atheist) go to https://speakerarchives.wordpress.com

Whatever happened to the day, when the popular response amongst Christians was “god is unknowable”?
At the bare least…it was honest enough to acknowledge that it was a matter of faith…in a roundabout way.
As our knowledge base from science kept expanding, and getting more complicated…did the concept of god begin to pale too much, in comparison?…Did it become too embarrassing, to keep admitting that one merely has faith on their side, to justify denying the findings of science?
Science has eclipsed “god” so badly…and faith is no equal to science…And neither science nor faith, can be measured scientifically, as an element or factor…
…Yet, science is what has objectively explained so much, and given us so much…Science is objectively sound, when it’s not corrupted by social politics and the like.
Did they come to the conclusion…that they need to appear to be staying on equal footing with science?…that “god”, therefor, must be something that can interface with science?…even though “god” has never been established to exist?
…It reminds me of the ways in which CSA “studies” get doctored, and cooked up…Just presume and forcefully assert “We know it’s true”…while moving the numbers around, to fit your desired conclusions.
