QAnon hurts real trafficking victims: The conspiracy theory is dangerous because it obscures the real threat…

“As I put my stethoscope on her chest, I noted suspicious marks. She was a Black teen runaway and a victim of sex trafficking. I parted her exam gown to get a better look, thinking it was a rash, only to make out a word of profanity across her chest. She had self-engraved the letters, possibly with a pencil. Unfortunately, many sex trafficking victims are homeless youth of color. They are not suburban children snatched up at pizza parlors, as conspiracy theorists would lead one to believe.

I try not to get caught up in conspiracy theories, like QAnon, but when it comes to the well-being of kids, I draw the line. President Trump’s recent endorsement of QAnon as a group fighting pedophilia was wrong. It was dangerous. The spread of these lies makes it harder for actual victims to get help.

Let’s start with the obvious: In my 20 years of practice as a child abuse pediatrician, none of my patients have disclosed their trafficker was a satanic ring of high-ranking Democrats or Wayfair, the home décor company, as purported by QAnon. Most victims are trafficked by someone they know — frequently, a boyfriend or a girlfriend.

QAnon has actually incited more violence than it has prevented. Earlier this year, Jessica Prim, a QAnon supporter, drove to NYC with a carload of knives, thinking she was going to free children from a Biden-Clinton trafficking ring allegedly run on a ship designated for COVID-19 relief. It’s no wonder that QAnon has been declared a domestic terror threat by the FBI.”

01) Filip30: new results from Kinsey-study about child-adult-sex…

“Good news! The most important scientific magazine about sexuality has published a new article by Bruce Rind:

Rind, Bruce (2016): Reactions to First Postpubertal Female Same-Sex Sexual Experience in the Kinsey Sample: A Comparison of Minors with Peers, Minors with Adults, and Adults with Adults. Archives of Sexual Behavior, published online October 25th 2016

Bruce Rind writes about his study:

“This study examined reactions to first postpubertal same-sex sexual experience in the Kinsey female same-sex sample (consisting of females with extensive postpubertal same-sex experience) as a function of participant and partner ages. (…) Data were collected by Kinsey interviewers between 1939 and 1961 (M year=1947). Girls under 18 (M age=14.9), whose sexual experience was with a woman (M age=26.3), reacted positively just as often as girls under 18 (M age=14.1) with peers (Mage=15.0) and women (Mage=22.7)with women (Mage=26.3). The positive-reaction rates were, respectively, 85, 82, and 79 %. In a finer-graded analysis, younger adolescent girls (B14) (Mage=12.8) with women (Mage=27.4) had a high positive reaction rate (91%), a rate reached by no other group. For women (M age=22.2) with same-aged peers (M age=22.3), this rate was 86%.Girls with peers or women had no emotionally negative reactions (e.g., fear, disgust, shame, regret);women with women rarely did. Results contradicted prevailing clinical, legal, and lay beliefs that minor–adult sex is inherently traumatic and would be distinguished as such compared to age-concordant sex.”

It is very interesting to see that once again older minors did NOT like sex with adults more than younger minors. This is the same result as in several other studies. Here comes the new result in this issue:

“Minors´ positive reaction (enjoyed “much”) to first postpubertal same-sex sexual experience as a function of age at experience, in original Kinsey female same-sex sample”:

Minor less or equal 11 years old + adult: 100 % (n=1)
Minor 12 years old + adult: 100 % (n=1)
Minor 13 years old + adult: 100 % (n=5)
Minor 14 years old + adult: 75 % (n=4)
Minor 15 years old + adult: 100 % (n=2)
Minor 16 years old + adult: 67 % (n=3)
Minor 17 years old + adult: 80 % (n=10)

“Rates of positive and negative reactions to first postpubertal same-sex sexual experience, in Kinsey female same-sex sample, by five finergraded participant-partner age groups”:

Minor + peer – Enoyed “much” – 82 % (N=78)
Minor less equal 14 + adult – 91 % (N=11)
Minor (15-17) + adult – 80 % (N=58)
Adult + peer adult – 86 % (N=58)
Adult + older adult – 63 % (N=30)
Total 81 % (N=192)

Correction:

Sorry, in one sentence not 58 but 15 girls were involved:

wrong: “Minor (15-17) + adult – 80 % (N=58)”

right: “Minor (15-17) + adult – 80 % (N=15)”

US Far-Right Extremism Is Unique For These Reasons…

“What does the new global far-right look like? And what is unique about these extremists in the US vs other countries? John Iadarola and Dr. Cynthia Miller break it down on The Damage Report.

Hate crimes. Misinformation and conspiracy theories. Foiled white-supremacist plots. The signs of growing far-right extremism are all around us, and communities across America and around the globe are struggling to understand how so many people are being radicalized and why they are increasingly attracted to violent movements. Hate in the Homeland shows how tomorrow’s far-right nationalists are being recruited in surprising places, from college campuses and mixed martial arts gyms to clothing stores, online gaming chat rooms, and YouTube cooking channels.

Instead of focusing on the how and why of far-right radicalization, Cynthia Miller-Idriss seeks answers in the physical and virtual spaces where hate is cultivated. Where does the far right do its recruiting? When do young people encounter extremist messaging in their everyday lives? Miller-Idriss shows how far-right groups are swelling their ranks and developing their cultural, intellectual, and financial capacities in a variety of mainstream settings. She demonstrates how young people on the margins of our communities are targeted in these settings, and how the path to radicalization is a nuanced process of moving in and out of far-right scenes throughout adolescence and adulthood.
