Shoot the Messenger: Blame the Victim (tags)

Victims of rape are often blamed for the assaults because of the lingering sexism in our society.

Who declares themselves to be the ultimate-only-valid-authority here on current wars elsew (tags)

So many good fotos shared about the most recent and continuous conflicts, be they about Israel and Palestine, about Ukraine and Russia, about anyplace ELSE than in the UStatesA. Each commentator claiming to know ‘the facts’, the holy only truth, the right answer, the wrong ‘other’ or the ‘poor victim’. Exhortations and declarations are good reading on Indy but many forget that opinions and alliances do not make honesty, impartial research, ‘facts’ and reality that will be believed …later. Like all the FIA hindsight revealed, so much is said by media and individual common people writing here are arrogantly acting as-if they were the One and Only One who is RIGHT! …huh ? how many ‘rights’ are there here and how long does that claim last over even a few years or months of time ?

"A Menace to Society: Or How An Uppity Black Man Got Banned From Cody’s Bookstore" (tags)

Joseph Anderson is the outspoken author of a number of commentaries (available online) criticizing the racist stereotyping and pathologizing of Black males from young to old – and sometimes even by those particular *Black* authors, filmmakers and documentary makers eagerly given investment financing, contracts, buy-outs, royalties, grants, distribution, or platforms by white corporations and institutions to do so – attitudinally leading to the legalized, collectively *serial* murders of unarmed Black males by cops, white (or even 'honorary white') wanna-be cops (like George Zimmerman), and other racist assailants all over this country, as well as to Black males' systematic incarceration. This important, exemplified, 'vintage' article, asked for and published (at the literary journal "Konch") by the internationally famous African American author and UC Berkeley professor emeritus, Ishmael Reed, REVISITS and DETAILS some of Anderson's own experience with, and reflections upon, this – including, especially, white liberal racism. Unfortunately, like all prophetic writing, these reflections are all too true even today.

Please Oh LA Times Get A San Diego Section—Please! (tags)

The U-T has never been, over the time I have lived in southern California, a terribly great paper—despite all the awards the news industry gives onto itself. Yet it is really the opinion pages at the U-T that suck (even with less news and staff). OK, given that the front page is now celebrity central as Hollywood Variety Magazine—that is a tabloid sensation for a cult of personality is questionable too.

Was Dahrun "Spycam Man" Ravi a Secret Closet Queen? (tags)

Just wondering of Dahrun Ravi was obsessed with his own secret homosexuality and this is what led him to spy on his roommate having sexual relations with another man? There is a fine line between homophobia and repressed homosexuality.

Narcissist Females Use False Allegations for Power (tags)

Females with narcissistic personality disorder often make false allegations of rape against men that do not submit to their control. False allegations of rape are counterproductive and injurious to women who experienced rape in reality. Not to mention the effect on innocent men who could face real rape in prison.

Bad Teacher Movie Review: Alternative Media (tags)

Bad Teacher is ?gratifying? as eye-candy and verbal shock. It is an enjoyable movie precisely because it is not lame?at least not as lame as many of its movie reviews. And in the final analysis there is little subtly to this dark comedy?how might we say?as Andrew Breitbart?s description of a certain Anthony Wiener cellphone photo he so nobly withheld as: ??beyond the beyond?? There is nothing wrong with comparing the ?psychology? of this new release to a maybe-to-be-released movie about Anthony Weiner?s downfall and destruction within America?s misandrynous climate. Brain cells are not what Bad Teacher is about?has the American movie industry produced a movie that has enhanced anyone?s brain cells?

RED: "Non-Binary" Person Rejects Male/Female Gender Duality (tags)

Red, who works at San Diego's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center, identifies themselves as non-binary: that is, neither male nor female but somewhere in a "cloud" of genders that rejects the idea that there are only two human gender identities, male and female. They gave an interview for the August 2011 Zenger's Newsmagazine in which they (you refer to a non-binary person as "they," "them" or "theirs" even if you're only referencing one individual) explained these new, unfamiliar concepts of gender that are beyond the experience of most people, including most Transgender people. Red and Zenger's editor/publisher Mark Gabrish Conlan discussed how both gender identity and sexual orientation are far more complex and fluid than either the straight or the Queer mainstream is willing to acknowledge.

Ban Circumcision and Female genital mutilation (tags)

It is tragic that we are adopting a barbaric ritual of male circumcision and female genital mutilation that belongs to Iron age in the twenty-first century. From the moment of birth, every child has all the human rights of any other person - including the inviolable right to freedom from non-consensual, non-therapeutic bodily alternation. Muslim and Jew Males and females are being denied their inherent right to keep all the body parts with which they were born. Fixation of Muslims and Jews with physical matters like on diet, bodily cleanliness and circumcision reveal their spiritual improvishment.

Connor Maddocks Teaches "Trans 101" to Queer Marriage Group (tags)

The Queer community is increasingly referred to by the awkward acronym "LGBT" ? which stands for "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender" ? but few Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals really understand the needs, struggles and the rights of Transgender people. To bridge that gap, the San Diego Alliance for Marriage Equality (S.A.M.E.) invited Connor Maddocks, facilities manager at the San Diego Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center and a female-to-male Transgender person, to make a presentation at their March 8 meeting. Maddocks' talk spanned a number of issues, from the physical aspects of a gender transition to the ways Transgender people are discriminated against and the hostility they sometimes face not only from heterosexuals but other Queers.

“How Do You Know” is a real cat shit slow ball of a movie. (tags)

James L. Brooks’ new movie “How Do You Know” is a real cat shit of a slow ball (that is as Owen Wilson, or Matty Reynolds, the never-too-conscientious autistic, actually relates a hope-you-feel-better story to Reese Witherspoon, as Lisa, about a disgruntled x-baseball player who sent cat shit by mail to the manager that fired him). Once upon a time there lived an insulated, highly paid, professional straw blonde pitcher who lived like a prince in a castle—that is an expensive high rise, posh, penthouse. By the way, this movie really is a more or less a juvenile fairytale—although at times it’s surprisingly funny.

Sexual Offense in California (tags)

Yet, somehow the attitude for some citizens thus goes, after more legislation has been proposed, and in process of being enacted (Assembly Bill 1844 Chelsea’s Law), in California following the recent rape and killings by one John Gardener, a sexual offender released from prison and not very closely and competently monitored by the system, is that everyone, that is everyone thought to be a “good” citizen of the state of California, ought be able to live in a Utopian world in which “no one” feels offended—especially sexually offended—and this idealism should reside no matter how arbitrary and contradictory the propensity to feel offended may seem.

Sexual Offender As Label Versus the Zealotry of the Self-Righteous (tags)

Sexuality and eroticism has always been “offensive” to somebody. Especially is this so in this land of the blue-nose, which descended here from a long Christian paranoia of anything erotic and unclean. But where is this psychology of “erotophobia” mentioned in California’s latest crusade against anything that falls under the rubric of “sexual offender?”

Gov't message: Bush ok to have boyfriend, but it's not ok for Clinton to have girlfriend (tags)

The Bush White House gay sex scandal heats up, as new revelations show that fake reporter and male prostitute Jeff Gannon "slept over" on numerous occasions at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Gannon had previously advertised his services on the internet as a male prostitute "top" at $1200 per weekend. Since "Jeff Gannon" has given the term "media whore" a whole new definition, the question arises -- could "Jeff Gannon" be President George Bush's Lewinsky albeit in gay apparel?

Don Imus vs. Rap Music Debate Continued: (tags)

Randi Rhodes of Air America is still wrong when she claims that “the” issue (insisting there is only one issue) is no more than white people blaming rap music for words like “ho” when used in the derogatory sense. Don Imus question: “What about rap music?” is a legitimate question—even if “pseudo-liberals” (real liberals consider fairly all relevant points of view before getting judgmental) are quick to dismiss it. In fact dogmatic certitude that there is “one” significant way (my way or the highway) to interpret the debate is itself a red flag.

REPUBLICAN HOMOSEXUAL RING WIDENS (tags)

Haggard, of course resides in Colorado; the Box Nest for FBI Div 5 and the National Headquarters for what we now know as the pedophile ring. Of course, supplying these prostitutes is none other than NBC's Wm Morris Agency out of Denver Colorado. That's right folks NBC General Electric: Pimps More Than Light Bulbs. It can now be reported that the clientele list nationwide includes some of the following: William Frist (R. Tenn.), Charlie Crist (R.Fla), Robert Dryer(R.Ca.), Trent Lott(R. Miss.), and, of course, the Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman. All of them in the closet....

CORIAC (tags)

Traditionally, Mexican culture is hierarchical in nature and there is a definite leaning toward a "macho" approach in the way men interact with women. Male superiority is a given, and the majority of women are oppressed and brutalized by their menfolk in everyday life. According to the Human Rights Commission, in Mexico City, 80% of female victims of domestic violence are victims on multiple occasions.

Only Whites Claim Katrina’s Poor Response is NOT Racist (tags)

I have not seen one person of color saying that the response to Katrina in New Orleans had “nothing to do with race.” The mere fact that the ONLY people saying that are white says it all to me.

KOBE SBM and her psychopathology. (tags)

Erotomanic stalkers are delusional, and the available research suggests that they are likely to be female. While the majority of the early literature on offline stalking seems to focus on erotomania as the most prolific type, some investigators suggest that there is little support for this stalker type as the most prevalent (Geberth, 1992; Harmon, Rosner & Owens, 1995; Zona et al. 1993).
