EDITORIAL: Truthloader LIVE on Iceland’s Porn Ban! Providing a Choice IS NOT Censorship, NOT Providing a Choice IS!

EDITORIAL: The Pro-Porn speakers just keep spewing the same bogus statistics and solutions to the problem of porn addiction and the increasing sexual violence against women and children. Facts don’t support any of their arguments because their stats are produced by the pedophiles, sexual predators and torturers who want to legalize rape, torture, incest and child sex. Check out the Video below. As you can see, it stirred me up!!

Here’s a few comments I have regarding the panel’s discussion:

1. ALL violent porn should be banned. ANYONE who wants violent porn is for promoting a violent society. You can’t have it both ways. Promoting and glamorizing violence will normalize and increase it. Giving access to children will produce lifetime violent criminals. We’ve all heard several serial rapists and murderer’s own testimonies confirm this fact. There’s no such thing as a healthy violent sexual fantasy and there’s no such thing as being healthy and letting people beat and torture you. America’s porn industry is the ONLY legal industry that is ALLOWED to abuse and torture their workers and employees. I mean, they are now trying to normalize the cannibalizing of women and children.

That’s their satanism coming out and it’s sheer evil. Sex and satanic cults do believe they get power from sexually abusing and eating people. But notice it’s always the children and women. They don’t fantasize about eating men because it’s their violence and hatred against women that really drives their fantasy until it changes to reality!!

I’m not talking adults playing with furry handcuffs. I’m talking violence and abuse portrayed in porn. There’s also a huge difference between adults who, after some years of sexual experience, experiment with domination/submission and other sexual fantasies and fetishes, as long as they don’t escalate and include violence and abuse. But kids aren’t growing into this in their 30s and 40s like we did. They think triple penetration in group sex is a normal sexual relationship  BY THE AGE OF 16. Now media is pimping violence through 50 Shades of Grey. That equates to teen violence in dating AND children raping children when a child or teen sees it being promoted as healthy sex.

Violence is violence and it’s amazing to me that in 2013, we are having a hard time deciding whether we should include and allow violence against women in our society’s makeup. I thought violence against women went out with the caveman. Thought it was definitely gone when the Wild, Wild West was tamed. Or absolutely when Slavery was Abolished. What about the 60s?? Thought the last was stamped out then. Maybe we haven’t evolved so much after all and if so, we’re headed back to the stone age. You know what happened that time!!

2. Rape stats are NOT down. They are misrepresented in several ways. Police and prosecutors won’t file charges and fight for victims in court. They aren’t reported because the victim’s past and present sexuality is used against them EVERY TIME in court even though it shouldn’t matter!! Send one sext or purchase 50 Shades of Grey and a girl can’t win in acquaintance or date rape cases. Children don’t report for fear and lack of understanding. Many victims are drugged so have no real memory to report. Our society’s newest thing has been to brainwash people into thinking being a victim is weak so they won’t report. There are many, many reasons why sexual crime stats are being reported incorrectly and most of them are because there’s corruption in high places and these elitist criminals want to shame their victims into silence and compliance!

3. Parents CANNOT filter the world unless they lock kids in their homes. I swear, I want to smack someone every time they say that! Our government and corporations can’t seem to filter so just stop lying about it being an option. It’s fast becoming the BIGGEST LIE of the century!!

I think locking up your families is what it ‘s coming to sooner than later. Home school your children, take them ALL out of the system until the system makes a place that’s safe for them. Many libraries provide porn so kids can’t go there unless you sit next to them while online. Kids can’t go to friends homes unless all families in the group agree to filter and supervise. The list is endless and like trying to empty the ocean with a tablespoon.

ANYONE who doesn’t want to keep online porn from children is agreeing to corrupt, damage and steal the innocence of ALL CHILDREN. WHERE IS THE CHOICE TO OPT IN OR OPT OUT?? ANYONE who won’t agree to giving an OPTION to either OPT IN OR OPT OUT, wants to enslave and sexualize YOUR CHILDREN!!

There should be no rational adult who doesn’t agree there needs to be a switch either the governments or the parents can flip that shuts porn off to their computers. No filter out there does that. It takes the internet providers to PROVIDE. PEOPLE WANT CHOICE and if The People AREN’T given a CHOICE, It means THEY are AGAINST OUR RIGHT TO CHOOSE a different lifestyle than theirs. It means THEY are FORCING THEIR SICK, PERVERTED LIFESTYLES ON US AND OUR FAMILIES. They have taken away our RIGHT TO CHOOSE. I believe that’s against ALL of our Constitutional and God given rights and I wholeheartedly believe the majority WANTS  the CHOICE to opt in or opt out!!

The video is a great debate though pro-porn activists are much more pushy so get more face time every time. The reality is the majority of people WANT a choice. The reality is our AMERICAN government is full of pedophiles, sexual predators and torturers who don’t want to GIVE US A CHOICE because they want to ENSLAVE US ALL!!

You can’t have your cake and eat it too. There’s a reason that saying stuck around. If you want to provide erotic porn, NO VIOLENCE ALLOWED, put it in an adult only arena and let adults opt in or let those who don’t want porn to be able push one button and turn it all off. Providing a choice IS NOT censorship, NOT providing a choice IS!!

KNOW WHY they don’t want you to have a choice??

BECAUSE THEY WANT THE EVIL THAT THEY HAVE PUT UPON US ALL!!

JUST DO IT!!

OPRAH: Promoter of Sex Slavery and Sadism/Masochism, Psychiatric Sexual Mental Disorders of Sex/Porn Addicts, Not Desired Sexually Healthy Partners

EDITORIAL: They may have all the money, but they fail in gathering the currency of Humanity! Where do you stand??

Yes, folks, what Oprah and the media have been and continue pimping to you and your children is the idea that BDSM psychiatric mental disorders are a great way to enhance your sexuality EVEN THOUGH ALL of their BDSM practices are illegal in SEVERAL COUNTRIES, INCLUDING AMERICA, and SIGNED BY TREATY THROUGH THE UNITED NATIONS.

Makes sense why they have several porn industry slaves going to college for psychology. They are working to put out bogus research such as the recent piece by criminal and prostitute, Sharon Mitchell, saying pornstars are healthy and full of self esteem. They WILL use their insider fake research in our corrupt judicial systems so they can not only legalize rape, torture, incest and child porn but so they can get these sex disorders off the books. They want you all to believe it’s perfectly normal to stick your penis in anything and everything and abuse anyone you like while doing it! That is their goal, folks, I heard it many times in Porn Valley!!

The VERY fact that OPRAH is pimping BDSM torture and sex slavery of girls and women tells you ALL how DIRE our World’s situation truly is RIGHT NOW. On Capitol Hill and all over in the media, you will see outrage and calls for action against our trained soldiers being tortured. Human and civil rights activists PROTEST FOR, PROTECT AND LEGALLY REPRESENT TERRORISTS who are tortured trying save our lives but WHERE ARE THEY NOW for OUR CITIZENS, the CHILDREN, GIRLS AND WOMEN who are being sex trafficked, pimped, tortured, raped and abused in AMERICA everyday like pieces of meat and merchandise instead of human beings?? Why is it NOT OKAY TO TORTURE MEN IN WAR AND TERRORISTS WHO THREATEN OUR LIVES but it’s OKAY AND CALLED SEXUAL EXPLORATION to torture, rape and pimp children, girls and women in AMERICA??

Understand, I completely detest any of the barbaric behaviors of mankind which we see everywhere these days so I’m not for torturing anyone, including our soldiers or our enemies. My point is to show the hypocrisy of what is happening because they ARE pimping ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and now Oprah goes straight to BDSM to legalize the rape and torture of children, girls and women and we watch in sheer horror while MOMS ARE BUYING IT UP AND ACTUALLY HELPING TO PIMP IT TO THEIR CHILDREN, THEIR OWN SONS AND DAUGHTERS!! Our country has totally lost their minds to buy into this nightmare Oprah and the rest of the elite satanic new world order are brainwashing everyone with. WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP!!!!!

Oprah just took on Queen Domme BDSM role to mandate all females open up to this violence and abuse as the new “norm”. You may think it’s entertainment and news but it’s really the mind control order they’re mandating. They don’t allow any ‘anti’ comments through so our MEDIA IS CENSORING the public opinion to make it look like EVERYONE’S on board when obviously, there’s many who aren’t!!

Why would Oprah pimp such dangerous mental disorders and sexual deviancy as great entertainment and healthy sexual activity?? Because she has sold her soul and now she’s one of THEM. Maybe it was too many years hearing other people’s problems that drove her to it or maybe pressure from Hollywood but today, she could care less what really happens to us. It’s obvious in all of her programming.

They ALL know we have an epidemic of sex and porn addicts who will become increasingly sexually violent as their disease progresses so this is apparently their answer to deal with the problem. Pimp BDSM so OUR daughters can become the addicts ‘WILLING’ victims. THEIR daughters will become DOMMES of the American white males who are the twisted bastards who love BDSM and other sexual depravities. Think politician, attorney, wall street exec, media exec and hollywood producer. They either like to be beat or they like to beat girls. They wear diapers, they have all kinds of really sick, twisted sexual habits now. I’ve witnessed so many dark and evil sexual depravities and heard even more from 1000’s of addicts themselves while in Porn Valley, I’ll probably never have sex again. I’m not sure there are many men left out there who aren’t lost in sex and porn addiction. That’s who they’re trying to feed by pimping moms and daughters into BDSM (you don’t EVEN want to know what they want to do to moms and their daughters TOGETHER). It is THEIR ADDICTIONS they are feeding by pimping you all into BDSM and they took control of all your men through porn addiction so there’s no one left to help protect YOU!!

Now that you got an idea of the why, do you understand what they want from all of us? Oprah will take you all down and if you didn’t believe it before, BELIEVE IT NOW. Her Lifeclass series is one more example of a type of mind control with subliminal messages which is very prevalent in all forms of media and entertainment today. She’s the richest woman in the World and we’re just those whining, problematic peasants she’s sick of hearing from, so hey, why not make us all slaves? There’s already 2.5 million and counting right here in AMERICA TODAY!!

It’s time for Oprah to feed Satan’s Army for all the fame and fortune he has bestowed on her. Will you or YOUR CHILDREN be their next meal or will you fight back NOW?? Will you save THE CHILDREN NOW!!

Published on Jan 31, 2013

http://pornharms.com/mim/oprahs-network-supporting-bdsm-lifestyle/ – Now even Oprah has bought into the the lie made popular by book 50 Shades of Grey that torture, pain and violence are healthy sexual outlets. Morality in Media is calling for a nationwide protest of Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network citing the reckless glorification of sexual violence and torture depicted on the network. The Season Premier of Lisa Ling’s Our America on OWN called SHADES OF KINK, January 29, portrayed the graphic depiction of “BDSM” sex (bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, sadism, and masochism) in an hour-long television show, replete with whips, chains, handcuffs, and assorted tools of sexual torture.

What is BDSM and Sadomasochism?
Torture. Violence. Pain. Slavery. The most popular BDSM porn site explains, “Girls are also pulled in and out of cages, their tongues clamped, their bodies pinned, and their arms and legs strapped.” The company also claims to employ “contraptions used in countries such as China for torture” as well as machines, water, metal, wood, electrodes, hooks, needles, and urination, all for the sexual persecution of women and “young teenage girls.”

THIS IS WHAT OPRAH AND HER NETWORK ARE PROMOTING!

Women want to be loved, adored, and cherished, not whipped, dominated, and humiliated,” said Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director of Morality in Media. “Oprah and her OWN cable network seem desperate to bootstrap their flagging ratings to the tawdry and titillating world of sadomasochism portrayed in the bestseller, 50 Shades of Grey,” she added. “This is purely trash TV and worse, it is entertainment likely to foster domestic abuse, primarily of women. I would have thought Oprah should lead the charge against such exploitation,” Hawkins said.

At one time the promise of the OWN network was to empower women to live their best life, with inspiring stories of hope, courage and self-esteem. Lisa Ling’s Our America was not even in that ballpark. “A responsible journalist would have at least mentioned that sadomasochism has long been recognized as a mental disorder in the American Psychological Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders,” Hawkins noted. “Sexual abuse of this nature is at the heart of the criminal acts of rape and sexual assault,” she added.

So much of the pornography today is filled with sexual violence and humiliation of women, so it is not surprising that BDSM activities would find an audience. However, Morality in Media believes all women, children, and men have a natural human dignity, and that programming of this sort is inherently dehumanizing, corrupts healthy relationships, and grossly distorts a proper view of human sexuality.

HUFF POST LIVE: Internet Porn And Men: Has Porn Warped the Male Sexuality? Absolutely!!

http://embed.live.huffingtonpost.com/HPLEmbedPlayer/?segmentId=50f42a142b8c2a174f0002ce

EDITORIAL: This poor, young man has grown up with porn so he has no idea what he has lost. It is the challenge with 2 complete generations that grew up as internet porn took over the web. Their innocence was stolen by extremely dangerous, illegal and obscene products. If we want to protect the children, we have to stop Porn Valley from turning them all into this young man, a 23 year old who has no idea what true intimacy is!

I’ve spoken to many young men grappling with their porn addiction and the sense of loss they feel over something they know they should have but can’t experience since their sexuality was formed by pornography. It is very true, we need a real dialogue about healthy sex and sexuality but we can’t begin until we can get adults to stop joking and laughing about sex and body parts. We can’t teach the children until the adults grow up!!

The Huffington Post  |  Posted: 01/16/2013 2:07 pm EST

When 23-year-old writer Isaac Abel wrote a powerful piece on Salon asking “Did porn warp me forever?” he set off a conversation about how watching online pornography during adolescence impacts men’s sexuality later on.

HuffPost Live host Ricky Camilleri spoke with Abel Tuesday, as well as HuffPost Women editor Margaret Wheeler Johnson, author Naomi Wolf, MakeLoveNotPorn founder and advertising consultant Cindy Gallop, and activist John Stoltenberg about the subject.

Abel described the appeal of Internet porn, “I think to an extent it’s actually being physically turned on by the rapid deviance, by sort of the addictive progressive perversity of being able to click from one climactic scene to another.” Wolf said that pornography consumption can diminish men’s ability to climax and become aroused with their real-life partners, and Johnson pointed out that the ubiquity of porn creates a sexual standard that impacts women just as much as it does men. “It creates certain expectations about what women will be willing to do, what women like. It informs how women think they have to behave in sexual situations,” she said.

But perhaps it’s not just porn that’s to blame for the sense Abel wrote that he and other young men have of being alienated from their own sexuality.

“If the only cues you’ve ever been given are from porn … then those are the cues you’ll take,” said Gallop. “If we don’t talk about sex in the real world, they don’t know how. The issue isn’t porn. The issue is the complete lack in our society of an open, healthy, honest dialogue around sex for real.”

Graphic_10Seconds_TrailerTwo weeks ago I attended an event at George Washington University. Two American victims of sex trafficking shared their stories. One of the girls, who was trafficked at 14, told of her first experience being sold for sex. An older man came into the room and said “You remind me of my granddaughter.” And then he raped her. I was stunned. We often try to help people understand the worth of these individuals by saying “This could be your daughter, sister, mother!” That didn’t mean anything to him though. His addiction was so strong that that didn’t even matter. She said he looked like just a nice, normal, clean-cut older man you’d talk to in the grocery store. 


The other woman who spoke was trafficked from age 12-18. Clearly she was underage and yet no one offered help (not even the police who arrested her over and over again). She told me that many times during these years, the forced sex acts were filmed and photographed. What do you think was done with that pornography? One who is regularly viewing Internet porn is probably seeing images like those taken of her – they’re “getting off” on images of trafficked women.

I’ve been thinking about how we can help people understand what is REALLY happening in America to our young daughters. Then, just this week I saw the new film “10 Seconds.” It captures the progressive nature of pornography and sex addiction, the torment that the addict goes through and the affect on the family in a very realistic way. It also captures the realities of sex trafficking in America and how these two things converge and feed off of each other.  The film is released to the public today. I encourage you to download a copy of this to see for yourself and to share with those around you. You can see a trailer and download it here.

GLORIA STEINEM: “Porno Means Female Slaves”

http://embed.5min.com/517275907/

By SARAH HEPOLA – Published: March 16, 2012

IN 1970, when the Senate was first debating passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, a featured speaker was Gloria Steinem, a 36-year-old magazine writer with a growing reputation as a forceful advocate of women’s issues.

“During years of working for a living, I have experienced much of the legal and social discrimination reserved for women in this country,” Ms. Steinem told the almost exclusively male gathering. “I have been refused service in public restaurants, ordered out of public gathering places and turned away from apartment rentals. All for the clearly stated, sole reason that I am a woman.”

Over the last 40 years, Gloria Steinem has almost always been at the other end of the phone when some member of the news media has sought comment about a pressing issue involving women’s rights, whether it was Roe v. Wade (“If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament,” said Florynce Kennedy, a lawyer for Ms. Steinem in the 1970s), the tax problems that all but doomed the chances of the first woman to run for vice president on a major ticket (“What has the women’s movement learned from Geraldine Ferraro’s candidacy for vice president? Never get married.”) and even the presidency of George W. Bush (“There has never been an administration that is more hostile to women’s equality, to reproductive freedom as a fundamental human right”).

And that raises a question well worth asking in 2012: Where is the next Gloria Steinem, and why — decades after the media spotlight first focused on her — has no one emerged to take her place?

The question resonated last month, when the organization Susan G. Komen for the Cure announced plans to pull financing from Planned Parenthood, and when Rush Limbaugh’s tirade against a Georgetown law student and her congressional testimony over contraceptive rights became national news.

People like Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat of Florida; Planned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards; and Arianna Huffington made the television rounds. Facebook and Twitter percolated with links and commentary; bloggers weighed in. It was a roar heard on all platforms, from many individuals.

But none was seen as a singular voice of opposition on an issue — women’s reproductive rights — that was debated so intensely it felt like a throwback to the 1970s. (In fact, Ms. Steinem, who turns 78 this month, again entered the fray when she, along with Jane Fonda, wrote an online column for CNN, asking the Federal Communications Commission to look into whether stations that were carrying Mr. Limbaugh’s radio show were fulfilling their obligation regarding “the public interest.”)

The past year has been a time of reflection about Ms. Steinem’s legacy: she was the subject of a widely viewed HBO documentary, “In Her Own Words,” and the recipient of Glamour magazine’s lifetime achievement award. In the magazine, describing the influence of Ms. Steinem, Christine Stansell, a University of Chicago history professor, said she “was to the women’s movement what Martin Luther King Jr. was to civil rights: the galvanizer.”

History’s most formidable figures have always been a tough act to follow, of course. There will never be another Martin Luther King Jr., but Jesse Jackson was certainly waiting in the wings to give it a go.

Reflecting recently on Ms. Steinem’s pivotal role in the women’s rights movement, the author Susan Faludi said, “We’ve not seen another Gloria Steinem because there is only one Gloria, and someone with her combination of conviction, wit, smarts and grace under fire doesn’t come along every day.”

Ms. Faludi may actually be the closest thing the world did see to an heir apparent. Her 1991 book, “Backlash,” was a barnburner, a bold depiction of how the Reagan decade had rolled back feminist gains. Along with Naomi Wolf, whose best-selling “Beauty Myth” took aim at an image-obsessed culture, she seemed poised to become a voice of change. In March 1992, Ms. Faludi and Ms. Steinem even appeared on the cover of Time, both of them deglamorized and steely in their gaze.

Twenty years after Ms. Faludi and Ms. Wolf burst onto the scene, both have receded from the front lines. For her part, Ms. Faludi said she was not interested in leading any battles.

“I’m a writer, not a political organizer, and never had the desire for the latter,” she said.

It’s rare to find the introversion and intelligence required to be an author and thinker fused with the charisma and good looks to knock it out of the park on the “Tonight” show.

“Gloria Steinem did not invent feminism,” said Rebecca Traister, author of “Big Girls Don’t Cry.” “She was a figurehead chosen by the media for complicated reasons. She was young and white and pretty, and she looked great on magazine covers. I’m not deriding her. She tells this story about herself.”

This was back when the three big networks and a handful of must-read magazines could anoint even a reluctant spokesperson, which Ms. Steinem certainly was. But that star-making monolith has splintered into a pluralism of blogs, social media and niche cable outlets.

“There’s far less likelihood of a leader like Steinem emerging today because it’s far less likely for people to be looking in the same direction at the same time,” Ms. Traister said.

Leaders of all stripes are hard to come by lately. Occupy Wall Street is a populist movement without any identifiable spokesperson. Last summer’s feminist eruption — the SlutWalks against sexual violence that took place on college campuses — were organized not by one person but by legions of men and women together. Rage is channeled into online comments and Facebook posts and tweeting for the revolution, whatever that revolution may be.

Ms. Steinem herself has labored mightily to correct the notion that she was a lone revolutionary or that feminism was only for the privileged. She rarely made formal public appearances in the ’70s without her lawyer Florynce Kennedy or the child-care expert Dorothy Pitman Hughes, both African-Americans. She is currently working with Smith College, her alma mater, on an archive that reflects the diversity of modern feminism.

But the movement has also changed in undeniable ways. The injustices that united so many under one umbrella in the ’70s — no, sir, you can’t put your hand on a female employee’s rear — have been replaced by a thousand shades of gray.

“It is easy to unite against a clear enemy,” said Stephanie Coontz, the historian whose 2011 book “A Strange Stirring” examined the legacy of Betty Friedan’s “Feminine Mystique.” “Once we’ve abolished these blatantly discriminatory laws, the fight becomes more complicated. There are disagreements about what liberation will mean, what we want to do with our lives.”

The battle over who speaks for women and why has always been fraught. And Ms. Steinem’s role came with scars. Ms. Friedan is said to have resented Ms. Steinem’s influence, and the racial and political implications of a beautiful white woman becoming the face of a movement still create problems today.

“We watched the second-wave feminists wrestle about this question of who owns the movement and why,” said Courtney E. Martin, an editor of the blog Feministing and author of “Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters.” Along with Jessica Valenti, a founder of Feministing, Ms. Martin is a pioneer of the feminist blogosphere (a quick-hit list of which would include Jezebel, Feministe, Slate’s Double X, as well as feminist beat reporters like Irin Carmon of Salon), and it is where the raucous spirit of the ’70s still thrives. But it is a matrix of voices, an antic and hyperlinked conversation in which no one figure dominates.

“This moment needs a different kind of leader,” Ms. Martin said. “It doesn’t create stars.”

Latoya Peterson, editor of the blog Racialicious, said: “We’ve entered a period where there isn’t a single narrative about anything. ‘Feminism’ has given way to what other women have termed ‘feminisms’ — all the various ways that we seek justice and equality.”

Take Racialicious, for example. It’s a blog about race and pop culture, but conversations about sexuality, body image and gender stereotypes are regular features. The big political issues of yesteryear have been supplanted by messier sociocultural questions that a new generation debates in its own patois of activism, with terms like “rape culture” and “slut shaming” and “fat positive” and “cisgender.”

And so the 21st century labors on with a more inchoate sense of feminist leadership.

For her part, Ms. Steinem wrote in an e-mail: “It’s obviously a great sign of growth and success that the media no longer try to embody the bigness and diversity of the women’s movement in one person.”

Ms. Steinem’s DNA has been scattered into a million cells — in the blogs, as well as in the work of women whose labors do not land them on cable shows: Ai-jen Poo, the organizer of Domestic Workers United, or Navi Pillay, head of the Commission on Human Rights at the United Nations.

“We often have a cultural fantasy about individuals,” said Emily Nussbaum, the television critic for The New Yorker and a longtime feminist reporter. “But collaboration is just as frequently the source of great things, and it’s less rarely recognized. Change doesn’t always happen because of one person, but that’s what makes for great biographies.”

Which brings the discussion back to Ms. Steinem herself.

“Only a diverse group can symbolize a movement,” she said. As for whether there should be another Gloria Steinem, she replied, “I don’t think there should have been a first one.”

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:

Correction: March 25, 2012

Because of an editing error, an article last Sunday about Gloria Steinem misattributed the statement “If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.” It was by Florynce Kennedy, a lawyer for Ms. Steinem in the 1970s, not by Ms. Steinem. The article also misidentified Courtney E. Martin’s affiliation with the blog Feministing. She is an editor emeritus, not a founder.

A version of this article appeared in print on March 18, 2012, on page ST1 of the New York edition with the headline: A Woman Like No Other.

INDIA: Sex Trafficking a Major Problem. New Research Shows Over 30% of Indians Have Bleak Outlook

Gallup research released today offers a worrying glimpse into the psyche of people of all income levels living across India. When asked how they felt about their present and future lives, 31% of adults – equivalent to some 240 million people — rated their prospects low enough on a scale of 1-10 to fall into the polling organization’s category of “suffering.” An overwhelming 63% identified at a level that Gallup qualifies as “struggling,” while a scant 13% rated their lives high enough on the scale to be considered ‘thriving.’

The data, gathered from individuals living across 90% of the country, reflect a retrograde direction in Indians’ feelings of dissatisfaction with both their personal and professional lives and their perception of public life in the world’s largest democracy. In 2006, during the days of headier economic growth and optimism both captured and buoyed by the famous “India Shining” slogan of an earlier government, 21% of people across all income levels rated their lives at levels categorized as “thriving.”

Such a sharp downturn in the national mood should be a big red flag both for officials and for leaders in the private sector. Gallup’s research does reveal some bright spots in the government recent efforts to alleviate poverty. People who reported not having enough money for food, for instance, dropped dramatically from 35% in 2006 to 13% in 2012, and the numbers for people who said they did not have enough money for shelter dropped from 24 to 10%.

But overall, the new data paints a picture of a nation that is failing to deliver on the hopes whipped up by its high growth of recent years. Amid growing frustrations with government and societal corruption, people’s expectations for their lives are clearly outpacing what improvements are being made, creating an imbalance that Gallup chairman and CEO Jim Clifton warns could be stabilizing, as it was in so many other parts of the world last year. “You need a matchstick event like that vendor in Tunisia,” Clifton said at the Gallup India Behavioral Economic Forum today in New Delhi. “The question is: Are the conditions right for a fire?”

Some here would certainly argue they are not. India’s democratic process, while flawed, does offer the“safety valve” of freedom of expression that many of the Arab Spring countries did not have, Rajesh Srinivasan, the Asia regional director of Gallup World Poll, noted at the forum. But he did caution that India has fallen alarmingly behind on its promises of a better life for most of its people. “It’s very dangerous to create expectations and not be able to fulfill them,” Srinivasan says.

India has also fallen behind other BRIC nations in key social indicators like education and its people’s feelings of physical, financial and social well-being. Improving access to education, which the government hopes its new Right to Education Act will do, emerges from the data as one of the most direct ways to improve the outlook of a society. Only 5% of people with a college degree or higher reported feelings that qualified as “suffering,” compared to 32% of people with less than a secondary school education. “There is no better investment than education,” said Srinivasan. “It’s a no-brainer.”

That’s because education grants access to rewarding employment, a commodity that could be key in steering India out of the murky waters of shrinking growth and weakening foreign investment. Worldwide, there are only 1.2 billion of what the polling organization defines as“good jobs” – meaning jobs that offer more than 30 hours a week, a real paycheck and consistent work. But there are three billion people who want those jobs, according to Clifton. He says successful economies will be defined by their ability to deliver good jobs to the portion of their population who want them because global customers will instinctively gravitate toward emotionally healthier economies. “Outcomes of countries are going to be determined by [its employees’] engagement,” Clifton said.

The argument is not a perfect fit for India, where gainful and satisfactory employment comes in more shapes and colors than a 30-hour work week, but the underlying principle applies. In a democratic system, it’s hard to grow on the back of a population that senses something is fundamentally wrong about the direction their lives are headed. The darkening mood in India may not mean a fire, but the infectious optimism of the last decade is a commodity that India’s public and private sectors cannot afford to burn.

UPDATE: The GROUPON Boycott was SUCCESSFUL! We Do Have Power, We Just Have to Use it More – CONGRATS to All Involved in This Victory for Women Everywhere

EDITORIAL: I want to personally say “THANK YOU” to GROUPON for this huge step toward restoring consumer confidence in their company. Anyone can get caught up in the hyper-sexualized world we live in but it takes integrity to REVERSE THE TREND!! God Bless everyone who worked so hard to make this happen and to Groupon’s decision makers for helping to change our WORLD!!
Groupon stops all deals that profit from exploitation and torture of women

GrouponLogo 2

Over the last month, 20,000+ people joined our boycott of coupon giant, Groupon because the company was selling coupons to visit a porn studio. We know of at least three businesses that stopped their deals because of Groupon’s decision to run ads for a torture porn company. In addition, 7 other national organizations joined the boycott too.

We are writing to tell you that the boycott worked!

This message was sent to us:

“Given all the feedback from partners like you, we reassessed not only consumer interest but also merchant opinion on these types of deals. It’s never our intention to offend customers or our business partners. Your feedback has been invaluable to us and executives are regularly informed of merchant response, both positive and negative. As a result of the feedback from the Armory deal, we have stopped running adult deals across the country.

The Playboy Mansion deal ran after the “non-adult” rule was enacted in the U.S. due to a process glitch. As soon as we became aware of it, the deal was immediately taken down.”


Be encouraged that 20,000+ people stood with you this time. We hope that you feel as motivated as we do to continue to challenge pornography and the pornification of our society where and when you see it. We do not have to simply accept the mainstreaming of pornography and the devastation that results from it. We can fight back! Please continue to learn more, spread the word and take action when and where you can!
Best,
Patrick Trueman
President & CEO


P.S. Special thanks to the many of you who took action, as well as to our boycott partners: Citizens for Community Values, Girls Against Porn & Human Trafficking, American Family Association of Kansas and Missouri, Louisiana Family Forum Action, Illinois Family Institute, Women for Decency and Arizona Family Council.

GROUPON Selling Tours of TORTURE PORN Studio for Second Time – Help Stop This Sexual Violence Against Women

UPDATE: Within 2 hours of posting this valid and factual information that was freely posted in public, I received a defaming and obscene comment on my twitter from an account noted to be connected to Porn Valley. They know the truth about why I was there. They hate me because I took my daughter back and now I keep yours from going there too 🙂 Please pray for the souls of the lost in Porn Valley!!

EDITORIAL: Skin Diamond ended up on my desk again when Jules Jordan tweeted that he was going to do Skin in the butt the next day. These guys are ever so diligent about making sure EVERY SINGLE GIRL gives up their ass as part of the deal to work in Porn Valley. Monica thought it fitting that Jules get some of the same treatment in her “toon” below. I told her he’d probably enjoy it too much since all the males in Porn Valley seem to really be closet gays lol!
When we were researching how she fared doing anal with Jules (YUCK!!), we came across her Twitter account and if you read through, you will see it doesn’t appear to have gone well. Looks like she may be making a change in her life. I sure hope it’s a positive one!

IMPORTANT: Look at her tweets where she talks about having sperm in her eyes. This is a clear violation of the condom regulations. We will be forwarding this information to the proper authorities for further investigation and possible legal action.

We then found her blog entry from February when she did a BDSM shoot for Kink. Imagine my surprise when I saw who was her master. And check out the photos of bruises Skin proudly displays on her blog site in the same way gang members show off their badges earned from getting initiated into the gang. SAME PROCESS!!

Skin’s “Master” who beat her and created all of these bruises calls himself “John Paul the Pope”. His website is at TheTrainingofO.com which is related to an old movie that is all about breaking down and grooming girls for slavery. This is what happens when you work at Kink.com. Does this look like fake or “simulated” BDSM to you?? This is how they break the girls down. They beat them into submission by sending them to Kink. It’s all part of the grooming process to keep the girls there and make them sex slaves of Porn Valley!!

I believe this is the same guy that beat my daughter. She was caned from shoulders to heels. He hung her on a rope and beat her with a cane. It took a week for the bruises to fade. This was her last shoot. This is illegal in the United States. Why aren’t these people in prison for what they are doing to break down and groom girls for prostitution and sex slavery??

This is Skin Diamond’s Twitter background which shows how damaged she is now!!

America, you call this Humanity?? Entertainment?
How can you joke about this?? How can you continue to ignore this??


Skin Diamond before Porn Valley broke her down and beat her into submission. If you want to see how they do what they do to keep these girls in Porn Valley, check out this experiment from 1971 showing how quickly college men broke in a fake prison situation. These methods are used everyday in Porn Valley. Now you can begin to understand why these girls DON’T LEAVE AND DON’T SPEAK OUT. Who will help free them from this violent slavery?? Will you help or will you continue to do nothing while they beat these girls??

A LITTLE HISTORY ON SKIN DIAMOND

editorial by Monica Foster

According to an article on DailyRecord.co.uk pornstar Skin Diamond blames her father and religious Christian upbringing for her entrance into the Los Angeles porn industry.

Rodd Christensen from the BBC’sBalamory

 

Skin Diamond

The article reads:

The daughter of Balamory’s cheery painter Spencer has blamed her porn star career on her strict religious upbringing.

Raylin Christensen, from Dunfermline, has moved to LA where she uses the name Skin Diamond for her roles in XXX rated movies.

But the 24-year-old blames her dad Rodd, still recognised for his role in the BBC kids’ show, for her raunchy career choice.

On her blog, she said: “I’m from a religious background. My dad was in the ministry and he travelled a lot preaching.

My upbringing was pretty strict. Sex was always this big thing I wasn’t supposed to pay attention to. But what happens when you tell a child not to do something? It makes it more intriguing. I couldn’t wait.”

Raylin was born in Las Vegas but grew up in Fife after Rodd moved the family to Scotland for a missionary trip.

Balamory cast

He later found fame in Balamory, which ended in 2005, and now works as a bus driver. He said he would stand by Raylin when she began nude modelling at the age of 19, but he never imagined she would become a big name in the hardcore porn industry.

Raylin recently attacked Twitter after the site removed some of her explicit pictures. She ranted: “You’re just jealous because I’m living in a dream & loving every second.”

Well I most certainly hope that Skin Diamond’s dream does not turn into a nightmare considering the international exposure she has just been granted in regards to the identity of her famous father. What I hope Skin Diamond comes to realize, is that it is possible to maintain a solid Christian spiritual base and still be porn industry professional as I’ve explained on www.ChristianPornstar.com

A Christian Porn movement is underway, and hopefully Skin Diamond will get on board and realize that Jesus Christ and God are still there for her and ready to welcome her home.

***update: It has been brought to my attention that Skin Diamond may have falsified her ID and possibly her age OR nationality in her early adult work being that IAFD has her listed as “Ethiopian” and born in Scotland rather than Los Angeles, California – developing story…
