We can be pretty and popular, but isn’t it better to be critical and vital?
The pretty and popular things will follow, if the critical and vital efforts succeed.
That is the one thing I really like to make clear, whenever the “boring and dry” nature of many of our activities comes up in conversation.
A lot of […]
Round n round n round I spun at age nine, arms floating wide in the open air; almost as if being helicopter propellers. Sometimes, I’d even lift my feet off the ground testing if I could stay off the ground…I always crashed on the floor, of course…
I remember back to days long before the internet…We […]
So many of the problems surrounding our modern, “sex is abuse” approach, spring forward from our action of trying to box the entire issue up into a, “sex is this” and “sex is not that” kind of indoctrination.
…Does someone, somewhere “own” the patent on the entire idea of sex?…
…Apparently, some people have fooled themselves into […]
One of the biggest myths about atheists, is that “we believe in nothing”…
…a statement which could not be more false.
While I can not provide you with any “party line” list of “what atheists believe”, I can tell you that every atheist individual is unique, and holds trust in a variety of things.
I, for one, trust […]
In the course of seeking truth and justice for inter-generational relationships, probably the single most complex and troubling group to deal with…is the victim minority.
This demands such a delicate approach…because the pre-existing tension is so strong, it creates an incredibly volatile environment…At times, this alone can make establishing contact and bonding, seem like an insurmountable […]
“The Rind Report”…
…Do you know what it was about?…
It was published in the highly prestigious Psychological Bulletin (a publication of the American Psychological Association)…All published research, must go through comprehensive peer review, and be cleared as sound, before it goes to the press…
…so, there must have been something honest, and of value, in it…else, it […]
I would like to pose two questions…
…most specifically, these are directed towards anti sexuality proponents, who focus on “pedophiles” as their target.
A) What exactly are the specific agendas, of your war?
B) How exactly do you judge your own success, and arrive at the conclusion that your agendas have been accomplished?
…Now, I’d like you all to […]
Maybe, it is just catching me off guard…Maybe, I’m just to accustomed to seeing the majority of child lovers retreating to shelter, and covering up from the world?…
…Maybe it is because I’ve never been a member of a “face to face”, “on the streets” group like NAMBLA?…
…but, I just have not arrived at that place […]
I am at a loss, as to why this did not go out to the main blog, when I published it a couple of days ago…I’m going to re-post it now.
Today is the winter solstice…chosen day of commemoration, for International Boy Love Day.
May today be wonderful for all of you, and may you spend it […]
“Absolutism breeds elitism and prejudice” - The Infidel Guy (http://www.infidelguy.com/)
This quote is so beautifully spot on…and it states so eloquently what is so critically wrong with absolutism.
Absolutism in practice disallows anything but broad generalizations about entire groups of people, all activities of a certain style, all mental interpretations and motivations (incentives)…
Absolutism is a logical flaw, […]
