Protesting corporate mind control

Note I didn't send to the corporate owners of the place I
work for, for fear of reprisal. Sad, really sad.

I believe this page was blocked in error because:
Dan Savage is an advice columnist. The content of his columns includes, granted, fetishism, note 'includes', as opposed to 'solely consists of how-to's'. Dan Savage's advice is sane and safety oriented. You should be glad that students would be looking up how-to do things safely, both in terms of the things they do and with whom. I can assure you that it would be unlikely for students to be sitting masturbating over Dan Savage's sane advice. Dan tells it like it is:

“With all due respect, Glen, fuck your complex underlying factors--and don’t change the subject. I wanna talk about gay men who infect other gay men with HIV. Like a lot of HIV-positive guys, you would no doubt prefer to discuss HIV-negative gay men who take foolish risks... HIV infection rates among gay men continue to rise despite the millions of dollars spent every year on blame- and shame-free HIV prevention campaigns. I’m not advocating fear-based prevention campaigns, Glen, but truth-based campaigns: HIV-negative guys who take stupid risks and get themselves infected have only themselves to blame; HIV-positive guys who infect other gay men ought to be ashamed of themselves.”

Of course, this is your machine, you have the power to decide. I will bow to your authority. But just so that you know how ineffective your bot is, I have been reading this archive of Dan Savage’s work for roughly 7 hours, in two separate sessions with a two-day interval, before your bot kicked into action. So, you are not really managing to ‘protect’ the not-underage adults on campus anyway.

An educational institution is there to 'teach', which is not ‘rear’. To my mind you have treated these students as children; and you are not in the business of child-rearing.

PS: I felt I had to lodge my complaint because I believe there is no real or effective way to control minds without using techniques disapproved of by the Geneva Convention.

Poem: I have biracial hair by Zora Howard

See the performance on YouTube

I have bi-racial hair
Pantene Pro-V waves on the top
Easy to style, comb, rock-
Until-I encounter my naps,
I’m not talking about those-cute detangle with the spray naps.
I’m talking about those, slave naps, like,
No comb, brush, or man can handle the kind of naps I got- like,
No way you are touching my hair-naps like
Back 10 feet up, or we can dance naps
Those naps like-
I have bi-racial hair,
Those smooth and silk rafts hanging all through my mane,
Until you get to the back, and encounter the jungle, in which you can find Tarzan and Jane.
In the front you forget and relax in the pleasure,
Until you get to the back and remember pain
Baby hair slicked back with that good 4 dollar pomade,
That goes with roots and tangles,
Soaked with that same olive oil; mixed with that spaghetti sauce momade.
I have bi-racial hair,
Combs run freely through my fine breezy, just to the part, the most you can make,
Until it gets to the back and
I have bi-raci…

Sexual assault

If sexual assault always affects trust, then #AllWomen are walking around with PTSD and trust issues. I for one don't let THE MANY MANY TIMES I have been sexually assaulted and various other crimes (I do live in South Africa) be a guiding factor of my life. I have consciously chosen to trust on purpose. However, only insane people close their eyes while trusting. I don't shy away from trusting, I just make sure that I let people tell me who they are, and then I LISTEN and respond. 
You would be horrified, but I am not. I am NORMALIZED to this level of violence. It's natural. More sheltered people in my country have no clue what it's like to be a fully-engaged and person-on-the-street. You get used to it. Like children in war. It's the thing happening now and then that adds an anomalous punctuation to your life. You can't spend every day crying. The country is economically stuffed so you have to get on with making money, to eat. It makes you more articulate about…

On the necessity of the Hate Crimes Bill

I don't agree. The systemic issues with hate crimes or plain violence are different. Just like murder is rarely a recidivist crime, rape is recidivist. By picking out the differences, treating perpetrators differently we can punish them for the correct amount of time. A guy who leaves a knife in a body he robbed should be punished differently from a man who leaves a toilet brush in a body he verbally assaulted and went home and bragged about - and his peers had a party over. These crimes are not equal. Although the collectible evidence may be.
The perception of society that hate is more wrong than robbery, which it is, is also missing. law is not just for the perpetrator, it is also for the victim.
