“When is a ban a gag on free speech? LBC talk radio presenter Nick Ferrari and Labour MP for Hampstead and Kilburn,Tulip Siddiq, discuss the merits of banning Trump.”
Some in the U.K. want to ban Donald Trump from entry into their country.
…It would be nice to be done with Donald Trump in the U.S., also…But that’s not how things work.
I’m divided between amusement that Trump might be banned from the U.K….and the sense that it is absurd, to equate the dancing clown of Wall Street with terrorist leaders. Trump is a showman, putting on a show…He’s an obnoxious mouth with lots of money to buy himself the privilege, of being able to say and do almost anything without true consequence to himself.
Trump is not going to get elected [that is my prediction]…because most people don’t support whatever insanity he is spouting, from one week to the next. He’s just been tapping into very loud, very disgruntled groups, ever since he started this spectacle…And I expect he has been alienating many, who aren’t the rabid fanatics.
He was never a serious contender…but it is sad, sad, sad to see…how many people in the U.S. have slurped up, what he has to offer…and complimented him on the taste.
Oh…and I agree with the guy in this interview…Banning people is not a real answer, unless they actively are trying to do something, like foster or commit terrorism.

“A recent Kean graduate has been charged with being responsible for a series of tweets threatening black students at the school two weeks ago, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace H. Park announced Tuesday.
Kayla-Simone McKelvey, 24, of Union – a black alum who graduated in May – was charged by summons with third-degree creating a false public alarm.
Park said an investigation by the Union County Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Prosecutions Unit and Kean University police found that McKelvey, a self-proclaimed activist, participated in a student rally to raise awareness of racism on college campuses on Nov. 17, but left midway through and walked to a computer station in a university library.
Once there, McKelvey allegedly created an anonymous Twitter account – @keanuagainstblk – and began posting threats of violence against black Kean students.
After making the posts, McKelvey returned to the rally and spread awareness of the threats, authorities said.”
“There was a bomb threat at Kean University a couple weeks ago during an anti-racism protest of the “Social Justice Warrior” variety, some students noticed anonymous bomb threats appearing on twitter against all black students. As you might assume, they took these threats to back up their claims. Unfortunately for them, after a police investigation, shit hit the fan.”
Crazy, crazy, crazy…
…A person who is “against” this type of behavior…turning straight around and making terroristic death threats…against people of her own race…The exact thing, she alleges to be against.
Of course…let’s be honest…She almost certainly did not mean any of it, and was only trying to stoke the flames…
…But isn’t lying in this manner, bad enough in itself?
“Uh Oh!…There’s not enough [any?] actual terrorism against blacks going on…Better go create some myself, and blame it on someone else!”
This is not the sort of behavior a cause like #blacklivesmatter needs. In fact, it’s because of these insane, dishonest behaviors, that #blacklivesmatter has quickly lost it’s credibility.
This is honestly a shame.

“This is a story about the rapid evolution of a technology that has forced the American legal system to play catch up. Cody Wilson, a 25 year old University of Texas Law student, is an advocate for the open source production of firearms using 3D printing technology. This makes him a highly controversial figure on both sides of the gun control issue. MOTHERBOARD sat down with Cody in Austin, Texas to talk about the constitution, the legal system, and to watch him make and test-fire a 3D-printed gun.”
This was released in 2013. I found it interesting to watch.

“Another mass shooting rocks the nation. This time in San Bernardino, California. A heavily armed man and woman dressed for battle opened fire on a holiday banquet for his co-workers. They killed 14 people and seriously wounding 21 others in a precision assault. Hours later, they died in a shootout with officers. The shooters were married. With a baby. Their motive unknown. And so many other questions. And So many fears stirred up. About guns. About terrorism. About homegrown terror. We’ll take it all on-board. This hour On Point, the San Bernardino shootings.”

“Former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck was sentenced Friday to 48 weekends in jail after pleading guilty earlier this summer to a child sex abuse charge.
Shattuck, 47, pleaded guilty to fourth-degree rape in June, admitting that she performed a sex act on a 15-year-old boy at a beach house in Delaware last Labor Day.”
“It’s a tough call; people think men can’t be raped and they don’t understand that in the confusion no still means no,” says Curtis St. John, a representative for MaleSurvivor, a national support group for male sexual victimization.
Further muddying the water is the fact that some men can perform sexually, even including orgasm, and still be raped.
In an article in the Journal of Clinical Forensic Medicine, Roy J. Levin and Willy Van Berlo found that even in men who have not consented to sex, slight stimulation of the genitals or an increase in stress can create erections “even though no speci?c sexual stimulation is present.
As for coping, Marsh at RAINN says it’s never too late to reach out for help. But with the stigma attached, survivors may not feel comfortable talking to their friends and family because the victims themselves haven’t defined their experience as assault.”
“Of those who report their rapes, around 4–5% also describe experiencing orgasm. But the true numbers are likely much higher. In a 2004 review paper, a clinician reports, “I (have) met quite a lot of victims (males) who had the full sexual response during sexual abuse…I (have) met several female victims of incest and rape who had lubrication and orgasm.”
“I’ve assisted more young women than I can count with this very issue…There have been very few studies on orgasm during rape, but the research so far shows numbers from 10% to over 50% having this experience. In my experience as a therapist, it has been somewhat less than half of the girls/women I’ve worked with. (For the record, I have worked with very few boys/men who reported this.) In professional discussions, colleagues report similar numbers.”
“A new study reveals that men are often the victims of sexual assault, and women are often the perpetrators.”
The experience of men and women is “a lot closer than any of us would expect,” she says. For some kinds of victimization, men and women have roughly equal experiences. Stemple concluded that we need to “completely rethink our assumptions about sexual victimization,”
“We might assume that if a man has an erection he must want sex. But imagine if the same were said about women.”
I’ve spent most of my life in self examination…over a number of sexual issues…sexual topics…
…all while experiencing a world around me, which was continually encroaching on my own life and existence…habitually redefining, an ever shrinking place for me to exist in this world…imposing terms like “rape” and “assault” and “molestation”, even onto what I have only known as kindness, tenderness and loving…constantly assaulting me with the mental conditioning, that “there was something wrong with me”…that “I would rape”…that I was somehow violent…that I was an abnormal, alien monster.
My psychological and emotional stability…is something I have been forced to fiercely guard and defend, ever since I was quite young…in order to keep them intact, and remain a functional human being.
…So, I admit right here…that I have the capacity to be downright visceral, where it comes to expansion of the term “rape” [or “sexual violence”, or any number of terminologies which imply violence and lack of respect or empathy]…or every bit as bad, the aggressive imposition of the term “rape” [etc.], onto circumstances which are only guilty of being socially uncommon [or believed to be such].
Today…the term “rape”, is used as an extreme method to impose intolerance…It’s even used to injure and torment people…It is used, to dehumanize people…And it’s employed in wrong, cruel ways.
That is the ugly truth…That is the reality, of the world I have been forced to grow up and exist in.
…Do you know what is so ironic?…The term “rape” does not even begin to embody, what this endless psychological assault [I would feel justified, in calling it torture] puts an individual through…And I’ve seen this in other people, also…where things ended very badly.
When I say pedosexuals [Minor Attracted] are the worst rape victims out of them all…it is not a trivialization of rape…It is acknowledging that most of the suffering from rape, is psychological in nature…and that while many rape victims have a lot of resources and groups to turn to…pedosexuals only have the habitual, cold cruelties of society in their face, working to compound problems, infinitely.
…That is rape…That is a form of psychological rape, of the worst form…And it is relentlessly perpetuated upon people [including the young, and even children], who’ve never done anything sexually, for which they should feel ashamed…some never even having had sexual experiences, at all.
I understand that males can, and do, get raped in the sexual sense…I even acknowledge, that a woman can rape a man [or male, of various age]…
…I am just so damn, fucking, visceral sick to death…of people constantly trying to identify everything that is not politically correct, sexually…as allegedly being rape…because they cant wrap their mind, around anything except the current, dominant social narrative.
…It is a lie…This practice, is a socially institutionalized lie…It is intolerance and cruelty, at it’s ugliest worst.
It’s like fighting with the Borg…where nobody actually thinks, reasons, sees or empathizes…they just parrot slogans…and weak “cultural wisdom”…and work to ensure, that all opposing views and experiences are silenced.
…I cannot even begin to impart upon you…just how viscerally sick of this social behavior, that I am.
…If it were a living thing, which I could rid the entire world of by killing it…I’d strangle it to death, with my bare hands…and free us all, of it’s vast curse.
…But, it’s not that simple…is it?
…And I am but one ant, trying to move a mountain…or a desert, may be more fitting.
You have no idea…how much sincere empathy I do have…for victims of true sexual violence…But I’d rather cut off my own right arm, than ever relax my laurels…on the necessity of tirelessly, unapologetically fighting this social “rape” psychosis…which has really, really badly fucked over so many countless numbers of people.
“Who is the monster?”…
…The question honestly is answered, based out of perspective…And for me, this Borg has always been the biggest monster of them all…hands down…it’ not even close.
I’m writing all of this…because I wish to explain [as if I’ve never done so, before], why I come from the direction I do…and why my words are commonly not centered around sexual violence…
…That sort of thing is already shoved in our faces, and down our throats, around every corner, down every path, and at every destination…even to the point, of utter dishonesty.
I don’t support that style of social engineering…And having been amongst the factual victims of it…it makes me physically ill to even contemplate bolstering the behaviors, which our self elected enemies have chosen to use against us.
This is why I refuse to discuss circumstances, in terms of liberally defined “rape” [unless doing so sarcastically, to push home a point…where the blunt mockery, should be obvious].
When we go down that road…eventually, we reach a point where we are not even talking about rape, anymore…Instead, we’re talking about things, which are guilty of little more than social inconvenience [in the minds of some], and calling it “rape” [or the like]. That’s not only wrong…it’s dangerous. It has a real impact, on real people’s lives. It forces people into a confined space, where relentless stressors are far more likely to result into some form of bad, wider reaching outcome…Because this is what they have been pushed and tormented into.
One change I desperately am starving to see in this world [out of a list of various others]…is the birth of an unflinching, total honesty about the broad spectrum of human sexuality…an understanding that “different” does not mean “dangerous”…and a sense of genuine empathy, for the countless who fall outside of “the majority”. I want to see an end, to the cruel and blind [frankly, stupid] demonization and ostracizing of these people.
We “perverts” are some of the best, most decent, honest and beautiful people on this planet…The problem is not with us…If you don’t see that, then the true problem emanates from within you.
Now that I’ve written you a lecture [I wasn’t really intending to write] to set the stage…I want to just say a thing or two, in response to what is offered above.
Rape can be very complicated…and I acknowledge this. Like I acknowledged above…I accept it as a point of fact, that males can be raped…and that it is possible, to be raped by a female.
Where I start to have problems with current social trends, and all the projected “statistics”…is in the blatant fact, that it’s a forced movement pushed by fanaticism…which isn’t just encouraging, but pushing people to re-evaluate their sexual experiences, and re-categorize them as some form of sexual violence. It is incentivizing people to re-imagine themselves, as victims of a fake sexual assault.
…They’re taking human sexuality, itself…and trying to make as many people as possible, believe that they are a victim of it…no matter how warped, their ideology gets.
…And let me tell you…often times, it gets extremely warped and detached from reality…This is something, which the sex abuse industry has never owned up to. It fights viciously, to hide the house of cards in which it exists. Likely…most people who have a balanced understanding on these issues, realize that the sex abuse industry would collapse if it did not have social panic and fear on it’s side…and it would surely lose all credibility, if exposed for it’s dirty under-tactics…as well as for how incompetent it is.
If this social institution, movement…whatever you want to call it…if it acted in good faith, to push these bad behaviors and malcontents out of it’s ranks…I would have a much different view of it…But fact is…it thrives on those elements, at the extreme detriment of countless. Experience has taught me, that this is exactly what they are intentionally pushing…and they have no interest in getting rid of it. It is who they are…Which is what’s so unnerving about it all. No matter how hateful, inhumane or insane…that movement wants this.
Next…I’d just like to thank TJ, for his video…Because he does bring up something, which all to often gets lost…and which some people have no appreciation towards.
For years…I’ve thought that this “victim” mentality being pushed just about everywhere, has mostly served to infantilize a generation of our society…and this has led me to the fear, that so many of the people claiming “rape” these days…are really just duped by society, or they’re after money…or revenge…It’s more a matter of nobody taking responsibility, for their own regretted decisions, in a culture which tells them they are entitled to blame someone [anyone] else.
What is so tragic…is that this is no longer an unjustified fear, on my part…It’s exactly how the world has shown me, that it is.
The word “rape” doesn’t even mean anything tangible in a social context…Not anymore…Which is why I so often feel obliged to add in specifications, wherever I am discussing sexuality versus [or] sexual violence.
…I’m trying to speak sense and honesty, in a world of madness and turbulence.
This is all the more complicated a line to walk, since I took up writing for an audience I know is not made up solely of Minor Attracted People [MAPs]…or MAPs who fully embrace their sexuality.
But, anyway…I do appreciate what TJ is trying to say…and it’s important.
…I just see something deeper going on in society, which is manifesting into these kinds of conflicts, and even mockery…the likes of which some of the cited comments display.
Last…The quote regarding “victims themselves haven’t defined their experience as assault”, really deserves some stiff critique.
It’s these groups and people, who think they have the right to monopolize the experiences of others, in order to advance their own social agenda, who really get my ire up.
…People like the one quoted above, commonly believe they have the right to prejudge your personal experience as “violation”, and prejudge you as some form of “victim”…as if it were a foregone conclusion.
Because you see…”we” don’t have a right to our own cognition, nor our own senses, nor our own logic, nor our own feelings, nor our own standing as free and equal human beings…wherever these things conflict with the narrow views of fanatics.
You will be a “victim”…even if they have to reduce you down into the status, themselves.
…Disgusting…Really just disgusting, abhorrent behavior of control freaks.
I know I wanted to respond to a few other things…There is a lot linked, which warrants response…But, I’m tired of writing…So, I will end this here. I hope to come back to it, later.

“A new documentary When AIDS Was Funny, released Tuesday on the Vanity Fair website, reveals how the Reagan administration considered the deaths of gay men to be a laughing matter.”
Where I grew up…Ronald Reagan was idolized. We were told to respect this man, and to be happy that he had become president of the United States. This was claimed to be a wonderful thing for us.
Throughout his presidency…I believed he was a good man, and fit to be the president.
…It’s really sickening, watching the layers of reality come to light…
I suppose, I became disillusioned about Reagan, somewhere in the nineties…
…His legacy is not something I will ever look upon with gratitude.
