Tom O’Carroll: Stunning comeback for a great champ…

“He’s done it again! Supergeek Bruce Rind, chess master, stats wizard, revered within the research world but reviled by know-nothing politicians, has hammered yet another nail in the coffin of the CSA trauma thesis, in what I believe will ultimately be regarded as by far his most important paper ever.

Yes, yes, I can hear your scepticism already. Don’t get too excited, you will say. We have learnt the hard way that people are swayed by stories, not statistics, so whatever Rind says will either be trashed or ignored. Intellectually, the trauma thesis has been in the coffin for years but its undead power to terrorise has never been more potent.

True, but for how long? As I argued last year, things can change very quickly in the face of the unexpected, such as a pandemic coming out of the blue. When the time is right real facts will start to count, and prophets who were not honoured will come to be heeded.”

SUNY professor under investigation after discussing pedophilia in viral video…

Thanks to feinmann!

YouTube video was removed for “violations”, or some such corporate nonsense.

Here it is on twitter.

“State University of New York professor is under investigation after appearing to defend pedophilia


Refreshingly good honest discussion on the topic of adult-child consensual activity, and whether the risk a child takes in enjoying sexual pleasure is as bad as society might have one believe. Steve Kershnar boldly swimming against the dominant narrative.”

In more recent related news, Thaddeus Russell basicly retreated, and couldn’t drive home the point enough that “he’d want to murder a pedophile, if he caught them…”

I’ll just give the link, and my response to it from Mastodon.

It doesn’t help that he repeatedly claims he “would murder a pedophile”.

The arrogance…Who’s to say he’d be able?

I don’t like these kinds of podcasts…They’re feeding people inaccurate information…and I don’t presently feel like logging into a different account, just to post corrections which are likely to get censored somehow.

In addition…the murder threat is dehumanization and hate speech, in my book…But, YouTube won’t do anything about it, because “the right” unprotected demographic is being trash talked about.

Supposedly, this sort of thing is against their TOS, though.

“Twitter seems to be getting cancelled by studios, publishers and the media. More and more Hollywood types and journalists are turning on Twitter Cancel Culture, including John Barrowman (Doctor Who.)

We talk about how “cancel culture” failed to get Rogan, Chappelle, Awkwafina, Whoopi and more.”
