Van Helsing at Right Wing News brings us this stomach turner. Some prevert by the name of Phillip R. Greaves, II (I hope the first wasn’t a perv as well) has taken it upon himself to write a “how to” guide for the pedophile on the go. And this book was available on Amazon.
Amazon has finally pulled down from Kindle The Pedophile’s Guide to Love & Pleasure: A Child-Lover’s Code of Conduct by a pervert named Phillip R. Greaves, 2nd. The author’s product description, via Geekologie:
This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian [sic] rules for these adults to follow. I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter [sic] sentences should they ever be caught.
It appears to be a how-to manual for raping children nicely. Read the rest of this entry »
Kerrie at the Liberal Heretic (no relation) has an observation about the obesity epidemic:
In an honest post on Facebook, my partner Sharon pointed out that the generation of I’m Special, has caused a severe epidemic here in America.
We’re fat, ladies.
Not just a little bit. We aren’t thick, big and beautiful, or “curvy”. We’re huge.
What most amazes me, perhaps because of my age, is how people who’re morbidly obese still manage to have an incredibly high self esteem. The reason I say this, is because when I was a child, being fat wasn’t an acceptable state in which to be. It was seen as a lack of self control, or laziness.
Now I’m not saying people aren’t genetically predisposed to obesity, and there are certainly medical conditions that exacerbate the problem. But most of us are fat because we’re more sedentary, we eat crappy food, and we have this new PC form of acceptance for obesity. Such as the titles above. Read the rest of this entry »
W. James Antle III at the American Conservative revisits our friends at the Southern Poverty Law Center, and their efforts to cast legitimate, mainstream political groups as racist and extremist.
What calling could be nobler than working against the cross-burning knuckle-draggers of the Ku Klux Klan? But the country that elected Barack Obama president is not the America of “Mississippi Burning.” Organizations like the Klan have been thoroughly marginalized, their racist ideologies soundly rejected by Americans of all colors and creeds. To raise money as if they constitute anything more than an unpleasant reminder of our Jim Crow past is to perpetuate a fraud. Read the rest of this entry »
Duke University, bowing to the pressure of feminists at the Duke Women’s Center, has rewritten its “sexual misconduct” policy in such broad terms that even consensual sex can be considered rape. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has issued a statement on the matter and is challenging the new policy:
Duke University has instituted a new “sexual misconduct” policy that can render a student guilty of non-consensual sex simply because he or she is considered “powerful” on campus. The policy claims that “perceived power differentials may create an unintentional atmosphere of coercion.” Duke’s new policy transforms students of both sexes into unwitting rapists simply because of the “atmosphere” or because one or more students are “intoxicated,” no matter the degree. The policy also establishes unfair rules for judging sexual misconduct accusations … Read the rest of this entry »
Attorney Harvey Silverglate outlines some similarities between campus speech codes and abusive legal prosecutions, both of which rely upon increasingly obscure and vague language: Read the rest of this entry »
The University of Kansas has declared this week to be “Hate Out Week,” which apparently means that the University will spend five days focusing even more energy on issues of diversity and political correctness. The highlight of this is almost always the “Tunnel of Oppression,” a gimmick in which students are exposed to scenes, depictions, skits, and information regarding oppression. A liberal friend of mine was talking about it, and we decided to check the thing out. Read the rest of this entry »
