“Hillary Clinton supporters are going after the celebrities that supported Bernie Sanders, blaming them for her loss to Donald Trump.
“Dear Famous Liberals Who Refused To Vote For Hillary Clinton,
It’s time to call bullshit on your so-called social-political revolution — one that only a person of extreme privilege has the luxury to champion. Susan Sarandon, let’s start with you. I know you were “so excited and encouraged by the idea that maybe if everything is falling apart so obviously,” we would come together as a people. But spare me your sympathies now that Judgment Day has come.
But here’s what your privilege didn’t allow you to see: we had already come together. You were just too consumed with your own righteousness to see it.”
The only thing really on display here, is the trite arrogance of the author…And the websites desperation for attention…This is pure click bait.
It doesn’t deserve the attention TYT is giving it…And it’s a sad testimony, to the abysmal state of the modern internet…and broader social culture.
It used to be, the tabloid trash was confined to those small wracks at store checkouts…Today, it assaults you everywhere.
…And I am beyond sick and tired, of these sorts of click bait, money grubbing, commercial websites that do this…They are such insufferable “bloat-ware”, with a seemingly endless stream of loading clickable links, that every time you scroll down via mouse…the whole page freezes up for five seconds or so.
Even those of us with fully capable PCs, run into this outrage…It’s like they build their websites, with the visitors being an afterthought…And they look upon you, like you’re some kind of mindless, exploitable chattel…which are expected to obediently hang around, and keep clicking the links on their terrible website.
Websites like that, are a cancer of the internet.
My opinion on the tired, dead horse being beaten in this opinion piece?
There have been those of us, who’ve been fighting for true change in this country for decades…who’ve been trying to pull this country out of the hands of the establishment, which has been killing us…And, yes…I am amongst that minority…
…It’s always the same…The majority refuse to join us, who are seeking tangible social change…and they keep propping up the establishment…They keep ensuring, that establishment candidates keep getting elected, and continuing the lethal social policies killing this country…
Well…Things are noticeably shifting…More people are starting to join the ranks of those seeking tangible change…as the two major parties devolve and crumble…There is change afoot…But most people are still stuck in the old political paradigm, of voting for the establishment candidate put before them…
…And they’re not comfortable with the fact, that establishment candidates aren’t good enough anymore…nor the fact, that they are clearly far from “a sure thing”, anymore.
If this last election taught us anything…that has got to be it.
There is no way forward, where we just keep electing people who want to screw the people of the USA…When the people who keep throwing tantrums over their establishment candidate not winning, finally get this point…”we the people” just might start going places, where “we the people” actually want to go.
Pointing fingers of blame at the most principled, educated, humane and mature voting block in this country, while you’re trying to prop up the powers that enslave you [and all of us]?…
…Don’t insult my intelligence and integrity.

“Answer the following questions to see which political parties and candidates you side with.”
This one was not only boring…but I thoroughly went through all of the questions, finding or making nuanced answers, and rating my feelings about them…
…Got to the bottom and clicked to get my results, and the page froze up…The second time around was quick, and far less refined.
It still pegged me correct, by naming the person I voted for…
…It’s outrageous that it still placed me at around 80% aligned with Hillary, however…”The Donald” was down near the bottom…though above one other person.
I was hoping for more of a chart, or something.

“Sen. Bernie Sanders and other Democrats discusses his Medicare-for-all single payer health care bill.”

“The House of Representatives on Tuesday approved an amendment to the Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act that will roll back Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s expansion of asset forfeiture.
Amendment No. 126 was sponsored by a bipartisan group of nine members, led by Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich. He was joined by Democratic Reps. Ro Khanna of California; Washington state’s Pramila Jayapal, a rising progressive star; and Hawaii’s Tulsi Gabbard.
Civil asset forfeiture is a practice in which law enforcement can take assets from a person who is suspected of a crime, even without a charge or conviction. Sessions revived the Justice Department’s Equitable Sharing Program, which allowed state and local police agencies to take assets and then give them to the federal government — which would in turn give a chunk back to local police. This served as a way for these local agencies to skirt past state laws designed to limit asset forfeiture.

…And the wiener is…”Rob Callender’s Penis”!
You know, it’s funny…I have no idea who you people are, keeping this post at the top of my “top ten” list…But ever since I activated that widget [out of curiosity to see what people keep visiting, and to give old posts a shot at new exposure]…the post about Rob Callender dropping trow, and letting it all hang out, in a scene on Game of Thrones has barely left the number one spot on that list.
I think, except for a brief visit where some zealots were trolling the blog [I got over 1,200 hits, in one day], this post has not even left the list.
And, okay…that’s perfectly fine…It’s a very worthwhile post to read…possibly one of the more important ones, for what Rob says, himself…
It’s just kind of strange, that a post where I critique such a scene [and parts of an interview], is basically the number one post on this blog…Who keeps rushing back to this blog, to witness Rob Callender’s twanger?
…Is his twanger just this enticing, and famous?
…Am I the only weirdo, to write a critique on it?…[well, the scene, actually…I didn’t critique his twanger…I suppose I could have…It was “right there”, after all…]…
Maybe it’s the novelty of the post…and since nobody else has written about it quite like I have…I could be one of the top search results, for “Rob Callender’s Penis”, at any given search engine…
The big mystery here…is whether people are visiting to read my post…or whether I’m being upstaged by Rob Callender’s penis…
Other posts and pages on that list are mostly recent content…
…I’m glad to see the EQF Community Links consistently staying on this list.
‘En Tu Ausencia’ HD (‘In Your Absence’) 2008, by Ivan Noel, director’s cut… is another one that wont leave the list…while two other posts concerning Ivan Noel movies, commonly resurface. This is understandable, as those posts concern quality content.
A last mention…It’s not there currently, but Lord of the Flies: Clothing and Nudity in chapter 1 – Analysis… is another quite unique post, that periodically keeps resurfacing on that list.
For a blog that has practically nothing here, concerning boy nudity [other than a bit of philosophical discussion]…It’s just curious that these posts wont fade into the background.
…It kind of makes me think…people just love, naked boys!
Deny it all you want…
…We know the real truth!

“The queer-themed coming-of-age drama “Call Me By Your Name” drew critical raves after its Sundance Film Festival premiere in January, garnering early Oscar buzz for stars Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet.
One person who isn’t buying into the buzz, however, is James Woods. The 70-year-old actor, who is known for his conservative views, blasted the film for its portrayal of a romantic relationship between a 24-year-old academic (Hammer) and a 17-year-old American expat (Chalamet) living in Italy.”
I always believed that true decency, is allowing others their own humanity.
Who is James Woods, to deny this for others?
…and while he’s well known for un-holstering….ummm…”The Little Lone Twanger”, and slipping it to barely legal females several decades younger than himself, no less?…
Another classic example, of a person who likes to jump on top of the very young wherever it suits his own spats of heat…but points a finger of righteous indignation, whenever anyone even portrays a similar thing.
…He who lives in a glass house, should not throw stones…
But if the vulgar hypocrisy is not bad enough…
…I’m wondering how James imagines, that the way sexual minorities are maltreated in society, and the way they continue to be denied genuine voice and representation, is in any way decent…
…How is it decent, standing in the way of these people finding points of happiness in life, who have it hard enough as is?
As a homosexual who grew up in a family and school, owned by a deeply religious church…as someone put through years of mental torment over this, as a young person…where is this cultural “decency” you so stridently talk about, James?…Because I’ve certainly never seen it.
…I don’t believe that being put through years of suicidal tendencies, being forced to hate and reject myself, and destabilizing my life, is in any way decent.
Sad thing…after everything this world has put people like me through, you’d still deny me even the most meager scraps of personal happiness, wouldn’t you?
People like you just strike out at others, even when they’ve never done a damn thing against you.

“The Millennial Generation is increasingly unaffiliated with religion. It’s also a generation often described as entitled, coddled, disinterested, and lazy. We explore the label and the people beyond it.
Time Magazine – “The Me Me Me Generation”: http://time.com/247/millennials-the-me-me-me-generation
USA Today – “The Malignant Myth of the Millennial”: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2017/05/11/millennial-myth/100982920“
I never really saw “millennial” as being an insult, in itself. I know it carries baggage of it’s own…but, if you think “generation x” didn’t have baggage…I’ve got news for you…It certainly did…just a different style of baggage.
I think…my own interpretation on “problems with millennials”, has more to do with problems cropping up from “internet culture”, than anything else.
People flock together…they identify “the other”…and they can become vicious, rabid mobs…and their own bias and bigotry, is efficiently enabled on a level, that has never before existed to humans.
Having “facts” at your fingertips doesn’t make you wise, or experienced…It does not grow you, as an individual.
…Having 90% of your personal human interaction over your cell phone, is very socially stunting…And people lose that valuable face to face experience…where they can understand the ramifications of their treatment of others.
…That’s one of the things I’ve definitely found foul and vulgar, in the millennial generation…It’s like their sense of self entitlement to dehumanize people, has been amplified off the charts.
It’s like so many of them don’t know how to behave, towards someone with a life experience and worldview, radically different from their own.
As it is…most of my personal interaction with millennials the past few years, has been occurring as I sometimes intermingle with younger MAPs…It’s leaned way more towards the positive, than the negative…I love what I’ve seen a few of them doing.
One aside, however…
Being a free thinking individualist…I don’t like seeing the pack mentality…There’s way too much thinking like “the Borg” going on, in this world…I’ve experienced enough of that sort of thing, to fill twenty lifetimes…So, I’m very cold on the trend of everyone trumpeting their “anti contact” mantra…
…especially when there is absolutely nothing unethical, about being pro contact.
I am pro contact…and I would put my level of ethics and behavior up against any anti contact person [MAP or otherwise], anytime, anywhere…I’d put my ethics and behavior up against the entire lot of them…And I have no fear over walking away from such an encounter, with my own integrity and dignity intact.
Forgive the awkward aside…I didn’t want to turn this into a comment on other MAPs…I just really dislike group think, echo chambers, and social structures where everybody has to tow the line…
…And the “anti contact” branch, is internalizing and promoting a grossly false paradigm within it.

“It was long thought that paedophiles had typically been abused or had a traumatic event in their own childhoods.
But Canadian clinical psychologist James Cantor argues that paedophilia is down to “cross-wiring” in the brain.
He looked at MRI scans of paedophiles and found that they had less white matter, which links parts of the brain together.
Cantor thinks the key is how the brain is formed in the early stages of pregnancy.
“The dream is to prevent it before the paedophile is even born.”
…Being a BoyLover, is a gift of the highest, most beautiful kind.
…To eliminate the gift of love…
…Now, that is something only a true monster would do.
Keep your cheap trickeries, James…I’m not buying any of them.
…The BoyLover’s brain is the best brain, in my book.
…And the “cross wiring” isn’t a deficit…it’s an enhancement.
Get it straight.
