Wonderful

I adore this show. It’s sciences based, but also inclusive.

Supporting pedophilia

“Minor attraction” is …. This is the most ignorant thing I’ve ever heard of. I’m very open minded but I’m also glued to reality. The reality is this podcast is supporting pedophilia. As we continue to desensitize this society, pedophilia, the darkest of dark, is making its way through.

No parent, no woman, no man, no one in their right state of mind would be accepting of another man or woman being attracted to a child.

Being attracted to a child is already breaking boundaries as there is absolutely no room for consent.

And as we support and accept these terms and this energy that people carry of pedophilia, they have less of an incentive to heal and get real help. Because, well, soon nothing will be wrong with them and this will become the new normal. And here we move into a continuously trauma based society.

There is nothing healthy about following trends of this type of thing. It’s wrong, it’s common sense, and they need help. But they need to know that it’s not healthy and it’s not natural.

It’s a really terrible path we’re headed and this podcast is part of the problem.

Peg the patriarchy is not a feminist statement

The patriarchy when they see this misguided statement “don’t you threaten me with a good time” - using queer sex as an insult is not ok. Peg your lovers, overthrow the patriarchy, and don’t use taboo sexual practices as insults. Unless of course, you are trying to pleasure the patriarchy? But I doubt that was your intention.
