the word childfucker is empowering to those who were indoctrinated from the git to keep their secrets in the family.
this offends you?
makes sense to me, it really does.
>>>> The language was offensive to me. But then, given that you are a bright person, you probably suspected your language would offend some people here.
i could give a shit less what my language does to people, my language is about me.
>>>>> And, to the people here who were sexually molested by their parents, OUCH. I want to shield them all from that post.
shield them? take a poll, find out who is moving forward with their sexuality and who is not, consider which group comes up the hard boiled and pitiless truthtellers among them. that post was a LOVE-OFFERING to those a few steps behind on the path. this path belongs to us, by the way, we are the authorities on this subject, humility is expected from those who visit.
>>>>>>> This is NOT to say THEY would want to be shielded. It is just a protective urge on my part.
protect them? from what? it already happened to them. you think recognition hurts the unrecognized?
> >why coddle outright idiocy? how will people learn that way?
> Robin, you are too bright to believe that there is only one way to learn, and that everyone will learn from one approach.
people come away from mark's administrative post with their defense mechanisms fully intact, a very sturdy impediment to learning, ya think?
>>>>> I grant you that some of the most offensive, goriest, nastiest, grossest, most disgusting, horrifying, shocking material is remembered well;
not well enough!!!!
>>>>>> the Humane Society of the U.S. (or could have been the ASPCA) had an ad that was an EXCELLENT illustration of disposable animals in our society, but it was pulled because people couldn't stomach it.
very apt analogy.
i am not disposable, despite ubiquitious attempts to rub out indelicate aspects of my experience by good people who cannot stomach today what they did nothing to prevent when i, myself could not. childfuckers depend on these rarified collaborators, count on it.
>>>>Maybe they were coddling idiocy to pull the ad,
>>>no, they were bending to popular opinion, the idiocy i spoke of referred to idiocy.
