Gender pay gap: myth or reality?…


Date: March 22, 2019

01) Gender pay gap: myth or reality?


“The gender pay-gap has long been an issue for feminists, but in the past year it has hit the headlines more than ever before. Feminists have called for quotas, pay-cuts for men and pay incentives for women to help level the playing field in the world of work. But is there really a gender pay gap? Is sexism in the workplace rife, or is the gender pay gap a by-product of the choices women make? Filmed at the Battle of Ideas by WORLDbytes volunteers the speakers do more than ‘stats-slinging’ to make their case.

The speakers are: Kate Andrews, Associate director for the Institute of Economic Affairs; Jessica Butcher MBE, Co-founder of Blippar/Inspiral; Fiona Mactaggart, Chair of Trustees for the Fawcett Society and Rebecca Reid, Columnist for the Telegraph Online. The chair is Ella Whelan, Columnist at spiked Magazine and author of ‘What Women Want’.”

“Child Is Not a Gender”…

….

Date: March 21, 2019

I agree…”Childhood” is objectively not a gender…

…But they are physically different from adults…and when someone is most sexually attracted to that childhood difference, it is objectively part of their sexuality…hence, how they are sexually oriented.

Pedophilia is a defining factor of ones sexual orientation…just like being attracted to adults is a defining factor of ones sexual orientation.

People act like “homosexual” and “heterosexual” are the only things considered, when we talk about how an individuals sexual orientation manifests…and that is short sighted folly.

When the differences between physical childhood and physical adulthood are so wide…it’s important to recognize that either orientation is very different…and it is justified to recognize the differences.

“Childhood” does not need to be it’s own gender.

It is entirely inconsequential, to the question of whether pedophilia is a sexual orientation.

As a pedophile…I ask why there are people out there, who imagine they can disallow us the ability, to define and qualify our own sexual orientation?

It does not matter, that some people are uncomfortable with these facts…

…This is the way things happen to be…It’s not going to change, to suit anyone’s narrow comfort zone.

Why You Hate Pedophiles…


Talk_About_Pedophiles
…. Many of the things expressed in this Sub-Blog, I’ve addressed any number of times over the years. I don’t wish to analyze every video, etc., but I do find it valuable to share these kinds of video, etc., even if I disagree substantially with any of it…It’s important to acknowledge and embrace, that there are people out there, who are engaged in levelheaded discussion about “pedophiles”. – Steve

01) Capernaum – Official Trailer 2 HD (2018)


“Directed by: Nadine Labaki

Screenplay by: Nadine Labaki, Jihad Hojeily, Michelle Kesrouani

Starring: Zain Al Rafeea, Yordanos Shiferaw, Boluwatife Treasure Bankole

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, CAPERNAUM (“Chaos”), a new film by Nadine Labaki about the journey of a clever, gutsy 12-year-old boy, Zain, who survives the dangers of the city streets by his wits. He flees his parents and to assert his rights, takes them to court suing them for the “crime” of giving him life.

http://sonyclassics.com/capernaum/

I’ve wondered many times…what is the culpability of imposing life upon another sentient creature?

…A question which becomes unanswerable, in my eyes…when weighed against the countless ways, in which this world will hold down…exploit…isolate…sometimes even break and cripple, that sentient creature someone else has decided will exist.

People act like everyone should be overjoyed, to have reached cognitive awareness…to have experienced their own senses, and the experiences of this world…because the alternative [never to have existed] is presumed to have been “so terrible”…

…But that doesn’t mean a whole lot, to someone who spends their entire life struggling to get by…struggling to keep going…

…It’s cold comfort, to anyone disillusioned by life…It’s a bitter mockery, to anyone for whom life is a torment, from which they wish most to escape…and now wander through the awful process, of plotting that escape.

Life is not an equal gift to all.

…There are any number of people on this planet…who are brought into being…and then spend most of their lives being rejected, blamed and cursed, for who and what they biologically are.

It just makes no sense to me…

…This has never made any sense to me.

Facebook Is On Its DEATHBED After Millions FLEE And A Wave Of Scandals…

01) Facebook Is On Its DEATHBED After Millions FLEE And A Wave Of Scandals


“Facebook Is On Its DEATHBED After Millions FLEE And A Wave Of Scandals. It was recently reported that the social media giant lost 15 million users in the past few years, but most of these users are young people. This paints a terrible trend for the platform that is rapidly trying to transform itself into a privacy focused network.

But amid this crisis they are being criminally investigated by Federal prosecutors, losing two of their top executives, and being hit by a massive global network outage.

Mark Zuckerberg’s plans seem to be failing and his actions only seem to be making the demise of Facebook happen sooner. While this is bad news all around it seems Facebook is still growing users on Instagram which may be its saving grace. All of this news comes as we also are learning that Twitters user base is shrinking as well. Could this be the end of the Social Media Giants?”
