Aunt Jemima Changing Name & Logo, Along With Uncle Ben…

01) Aunt Jemima Changing Name & Logo, Along With Uncle Ben


I first encountered this campaign to banish Aunt Jemima [Uncle Ben, etc.] in the 1990’s…

…They haven’t been too interested in making these changes the last few decades…Not until now, after people are taking to the streets…and they’re probably getting really worried this might come back around to bite them.

As icons go…I have to ask, what happens when an icon transcends it’s original meaning or intent?…

I grew up with these successful, national brands…If you’d have asked me to describe Aunt Jemima…I’d have said she was a smiling southern lady wearing a dew rag…and not thought much else about it..because an icon that old doesn’t really have many old enough left, to genuinely connect it with racism and slavery…does it?…

You’d have to go searching for this information, in order to ever know anything about it.

What I find trippy…is that Mrs. Butterworth’s pancake syrup is also pulled into this…

…the magical bottle of syrup that comes to life and talks in the commercials…

If you’d have asked me to guess her biological race…I’d have honestly said she was probably white…she seemed like a classic, English maid…Nothing about that character ever made me presume it was supposed to be black…I mean, the color of the bottle was very dark…but it was a pancake syrup bottle…what other color was it supposed to be?

It feels crazy after all this time, being told that Mrs. Butterworth is black.

I’m at a loss as to how this translates into being “racist”, though…but it sounds like they’ve succeeded in banishing Mrs. Butterworth, also…

…and that black cook on the Cream of Wheat boxes.

01) The REAL Reason Amy Klobuchar Removed Herself From VP Consideration


“The DNC is terrified to have a progressive as part of the Biden administration.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar on Thursday night removed herself from consideration to be Joe Biden’s running mate, citing the ongoing national discussion about racial injustice and police brutality to suggest the former vice president should choose a woman of color.

“This is a historic moment, and America must seize on this moment. And I truly believe as, I actually told the vice president last night when I called him, that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket,” Klobuchar, a Minnesota Democrat, told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell.

01) These Trump Ads Were So INSANE Even Facebook Rejected Them


“Trump is using Nazi dog whistles.

Facebook on Thursday took down Trump campaign ads against antifa that prominently featured a symbol used by Nazis to designate political prisoners, a spokesperson for the company confirmed to The Hill.

“We removed these posts and ads for violating our policy against organized hate,” Facebook said in a statement. “Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol.”

The ads featured an inverted red triangle, which was used by Nazis to identify political opponents including communists, social democrats and liberals at concentration camps.

“I am not into sadomasochism and bondage. I am not a burglar. I am not a pandering politician like we see here, and here, and here,” she said, pointing at the board members individually. “I am a proud Trump Republican — TRUMP Republican — yearning to be free again. Who are you? Victim or victor?

Childhood Sexuality…

01) Childhood Sexuality

Thanks to Flashraid99!

“Many children begin to explore their genitals as infants, and some instances of childhood masturbation have been visible in the mother’s womb.3 Children have tendencies to touch themselves while their diapers are being changed and have visible signs of being aroused (such as a male body having an erection). Like all humans, babies learn via their senses and quickly figure out that touching certain areas of their bodies yields pleasure.

Some children begin to masturbate far prior to puberty. A study of infants and children aged four months to 42 months in Jordan showed that all the children who were observed had masturbated, usually multiple times per day.4 Oftentimes signs of masurbation such as tightening the things, rocking back and forth, rhythmic activities, grunting, facial flushing, and sweating during self-stimilation were misinterpreted as cause for medical concern by parents. The study mentioned that many parents may feel embarrassed upon discovering their young child maturbating, and that a lack of discussing the event can lead to further isolation and increased masturbation in the child.4 Other studies have confirmed that most children have masturbated in some form before the age of two.5

Children usually masturbate by rubbing their thighs together, directly touching their genitals, or rubbing the genitals against objects like pillows or a mattress. It is rare to see a child insert anything inside of their genitals, but some may discover that this is pleasurable as well.

…Many children receive typically negative reactions from their parents when they are found masturbating, but self-stimulation is actually a natural form of self-exploration. This behavior should not be punished or discouraged, as long as the social context is appropriate. Children should be taught not that self-exploration is dirty or bad, but rather that masturbation is a private matter and should not be performed in public. Negative responses from others will probably not reduce the frequency of masturbation, but will most likely increase the guilt and anxiety that children may feel when engaging in self-touch.6 Reacting with punishment and disapproval should be avoided, since it can lead to lifelong problems of shame and sexual guilt.

The majority of sexual play between children starts to emerge between the ages of four and seven. Empirical data indicates that children’s playing in a sexual manner is extremely common and generally harmless.7 Sexual play during this age often includes behaviors such as playing “house” or playing “doctor.” These behaviors usually model social scripts that children observe (such as seeing their parents hug and hold hands) as well as explore curiousities that many children have (such as seeing what the “private parts” of other children look like). This play is motivated by children’s curiosity involving social interaction, societal roles, and the bodies of others. Children see how their parents and other adults act and mimic what they see. Children might display affection to their friends by hugging and kissing, or even attempting to touch each other’s genitals, which is not uncommon…Sexual play between children can cause harm if the acts are non-consensual or hurtful, in which case parents should intervene.

Other common behaviors in children include sexual play encounters with those of the same sex. This usually occurs because boys and girls often play separately. While parents may be surprised to find their child has the desire to explore sexual play with a peer of the same sex, this is usually not an indication of any long-term sexual identity. In other words, children engaging in same-sex sexual play is not necessarily an indication of a homosexual identity, just as children engaging in other-sex sexual play is not necessarily an indication of heterosexual identities.

While consensual activities such as playing “house,” kissing, or viewing others genitals are normal amongst children, there are other behaviors that are uncommon and cause for concern. These include coersive, frequent, or aggressive behaviors by children.

…It is imporant to teach children to respect consent from a young age (in all situations, not just sexual ones). Professionals recommend that parents and caretakers conduct age-appropriate lessons about topics such as “good touch” versus “bad touch” and body safety with their children starting around the age of three.8″

It seems fairly well known among researchers, that children typically do have same sex experiences early on, even if they are heterosexual.

There is a lot that could be said, about what has been quoted here.
