Should Pedophiles Be Tortured ?

I am writing this article in a responds to the following picture and message someone posted on Facebook:

There are a lot of people who wish that pedophiles would be dealt with in such a manner – totally dehumanizing and stigmatizing the person with feelings towards those under 18.
But I think we have to take in consideration a big difference: there is a large group of people who feel attraction towards children, that do not act on it. And it is not because they see a child, that this immediately gives them an erection – the same way as a straight guy does not get an erection with every woman that he sees on the street. There is a big group that experiences these emotions and desires, but does not act upon it, because they do not want to do such harm to children.
I have heard people experiencing attraction towards younger children from a young age , so I wondered: is there something biological connected to this urge?
A study was Published in ‘Sexual Abuse: A journal of Research and Treatment” – which suggests that pedophiles have been exposed to pre-birth conditions that affected their physical development.
The study found that pedophilic males were shorter on average than males without a sexual attraction to children. The researchers observed this height difference by analyzing the files of over 1,000 men who were assessed for pedophilia or other sexual disorders between 1995 and 2006 at the Kurt Freund Laboratory in Toronto, Canada.
“This research does not mean that pedophiles are not criminally responsible for their behavior,” said Dr. James Cantor, CAMH Psychologist and lead researcher on the study, “but the discovery of biological markers for pedophilia has important implications for future study and possibly treatment.”

Other new research said that pedophiles are born that way.
Some of this new theory about pedophilia comes from studies on convicted sex offenders.  It was done at the Criminal Center for Mental Health and Addiction in Toronto.
Here are just a few things they found: a large number of pedophiles are left-handed, at least an inch shorter than normal, about ten IQ points below average, and have less white matter in their brains.  Some scientists say those are all biological so pedophilia likely is as well.  Not everyone buys that though, even an actual sex offender.
This new research that calls pedophilia biological, a true sexual preference, says even those who haven’t committed a crime are pedophiles.  That’s between 1 and 5% of all men.

Other’s say it is not biological

“There are those that feel a lot of guilt and shame and despair over ways they’ve acted out and don’t want that to be a part of their life.” Christian counselor Josh Spurlock says, in some cases, they don’t have to be– those urges can go away.  That’s because he believes they have nothing to do with biology.
“In our experience with folks it’s been premature or young exposure to illicit pornographic material, early sexual experiences, traumatic sexual experiences at an early age,” he says of people with pedophilic tendencies he’s treated.
The Canadian researchers say just a third of offenders they studied where molested as children.  Pete says he was but doesn’t blame anyone except himself for what he did.  And to ensure he never does it again he continues to go to counseling by choice.

 This new theory already has a following.  In Germany researchers ran a campaign to encourage men to seek treatment for pedophilia by saying “You are not guilty because of your sexual desire but you are responsible for your sexual behavior.”  More than 1,700 men responded.
There is also a website called “virtuous pedophiles,” an online forum for men who say they have been struggling with a lifelong attraction to children they’ve never acted on.
Talk therapy is still the most common treatment for pedophilia, whatever the cause, but Dr. Shifrin says medication to lower testosterone can also be prescribed to pedophiles.

I agree with the fact that they need treatment. Imagine if you would experience these feelings and do not want to experience them, but they still well up. And ofcourse people who actually have acted upon this urge and have for example raped children, should be locked away. But they also together with that should be treated, and certainly not put on the same line as people who have the desires but never act on them and would never hurt a child

What Do You Think About Fat Shaming?

For those who don’t know what ‘fat shaming’ is:
Explanation 1
A bullying tactic, singling out, or making fun of a fat person, under the guise of helping them realise they need to lose 50 pounds pronto or they’re going to become ill, die prematurely, or be a major burden on the health system, when in actual fact it’s an individual’s bias against people they consider to be unattractive in their immediate social or professional circle.
1.You’re a plus size female out dancing at a club with friends. You notice a small group of guys at the bar staring at you and laughing. Eventually one of them comes over and starts trying to dance behind you, rubbing against your ass, while his friends laugh uncontrollably. When you turn around and tell him to piss off, he laughs in your face and says, “Nah, girl, I’d totally fuck you if I thought I could find your pussy in all that blubber!”
2. You’re a fat person using the elliptical trainer at the gym. A man walks by and gives you an encouraging pat on the shoulder. “GOOD FOR YOU!” he says loudly, a little patronizingly. He has pointed out that seeing people who look like you exercising in public is a strange and unfamiliar occurrance, an idea rooted in the assumption that fat people are uniformly lazy and unhealthy, and you, as an exception, therefore deserve to be recognized and lauded. You feel singled out, othered, and very uncomfortable.
3. A fat guy in a cafeteria is loading his plate with vegetables. The chef gives him a smile, makes a fat shaming comment, “I spose all that green stuff means room for more pudding eh?” as he sniggers expecting him to enjoy the joke that is essentially on him.
The fat guy finishes his meal and goes to leave the cafeteria. Just then a work colleague passes and grabs his male breast. “Caw get a load of these moobs! You lactatin’ or what son?” jests the work colleague with a gaggle of sycophant friends with a collective IQ of 81.
Explanation 2
A term made by obese people to avoid the responsibility to actually take proper care of their body and instead victimize themself by pretending they’re discriminated like an ethnic group. When confronted with someone like that they will ignore all the facts about obesity being unhealthy and pretend it’s some sort of evil socially constructed conspiracy by teh patriarchy
Peter: “You’ve started gaining weight at a worrying level, maybe we could exercise together and take up a sport since you’re always at home”Bianca: “omg stop disciminating me you’re just fat shaming, all my fat is genetics and exercising is just a social construct made by our sexist society, i’m not being brainwashed into ur shauvinistic world”*Bianca then proceeds to eat burgers and refuses to better herself*
So as you can see, both of these comments have a different undertone to them, although they can both be considered funny. The first one comes more from the perspective of an overweight person, where fat shaming is seen as a crime against the persons well being. The second explanation is someone who would call out overweight folks for their obesity, and the implications it can have on their health.
Both of them can be right and both of them can be wrong.
First of all, we humans have different shapes and sizes. Someone who is thinner is not necessarily more healthy than someone who is heavier. However, their comes a point when you are too thin or too heavy to be healthy.
Obesity can cause serious health complaints. As your body mass index rises, so does your risk for coronary heat disease.  It can lead to high blood pressure, stroke, cancers, type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis, metabolic syndrome, sleep apnea, obesity hypoventilation syndrome, gallstones, reproductive problems etc… All of these things have a great impact on the person’s and his/her families well being, as well as on the health care system. But, it depends on how big a person is, and someone health status can easily be assessed by a professional.
Because some have taken this way too far, where even normal sized girls are considered to be “fat” or “plus size”, when they can in fact be perfectly healthy with their weight.

Look at the picture on the right for example. What do you think about this girl? Does she look like an overweight or plus size person? She looks pretty normal to me, yet she is a plus size model. Plus size has to be distinguised from obese, since the two are clearly not the same!
The standards being placed on the human body are sometimes insane. Mango has a new plus size line and it starts with the medium size, means if you aren’t stick thin you are a plus size now. and if plus size means obese then obesity starts now with a few pounds more.
So what is the reaction to all this? Obese Barbie. That’s right. It can be considered as a direct consequence of this weight battle.
Obese Barbie is clearly not just a plus size, she is obese with a double chin.
Obesity is not just linked to bad health for fun, it is something that is a proven fact.

Is this allright? Some people have given this doll massive amounts of “likes”, yet what she is supporting is not something that is actually good for the common good. Neither is anorexia Barbie who is unrealistically thin. So if they have anorexic barbie, why not obese barbie? They could have simply created normal Barbie, but dolls often have a tendency of being unrealistic. So within that we can see the responsibility of the parents, the media, family and educational system to teach children to be self-honest towards themselves, and to deal with the images being thrown at them. To become stable human beings not influenced by for example the media to look a certain way, and to not base their well being on the way they look. But that doesn’t make much profit does it? I don’t know, maybe it will!  But currently money is being made from insecurity, and that is something that has to be turned around.
Promoting anorexia is unhealthy, and so is promoting obesity. Obesity is a clear problem, A quarter of adults in England are classed as obese, and a further 41 per cent of men and 33 per cent of women are overweight. Britain is in the middle of an obesity crisis. And so are many other countries. Having supermarkets and streets stashed with junkfood isn’t the smartest option either if you want a healthy population without  thousands of temptations around them. Humans crave sugar and fat, and are often tempted when it is around them. We have a global responsibility within this, for what we allow our society to be and create.
Earlier this month I was taken aback by the women’s minister Jo Swinson saying she wanted to ban the words ‘muffin top’, ‘thunder thighs’ or ‘cankles’She wants to eradicate so-called ‘fat talk’ by banning the teasing terms women can use against each other, and themselves.
But banning is not the answer. Apart from being wildly impractical – kids will only come up with a new range of terms for fat talking – it doesn’t get to the heart of the problem. Talking and educating, harder though that might be, does.
Fill kids with self esteem and inner confidence to know who they are and to accept that. Don’t fill their bedrooms with fat toys in the hope that message will come through. We’ve got to talk to our kids, rather than ignore the issue.

Fat shaming in itself, is also NEVER acceptable. To degrade a human being, call them names etc… tells more about who you allow yourself to be, than about the other person. It is never acceptable to do such things to another human being, no matter their size. You still have the responsibility towards yourself, and which person you allow yourself to be.  You also do not know what someone is going through, what happened in their life, what their inner struggle may be.

manda Sidwell Smith spent years of her life being insulted about her weight. The words were so harsh and so consistent that she internalized them and felt “less than human.” The pain was so great that she decided to change her body through cosmetic surgery, which created a domino effect with disastrous results.

Instead of shaming and name calling, we should empower and support each other to do what is best for ourselves and the common good, together with taking responsibility for the system we allow to exist around us.

Tara Reid Looking Super Skinny in a Bikini

addOn the website they featured this “article” about Tara Reid in her bikini, going:
“38 year-old Tara Reid recently posted a few bikini pictures on Twitter, where the blonde star reveals an ultra thin frame.”
That’s it…. really.
Many of the articles are simply pictures to drive traffic to their website, and then there is room beneath for users to comment, saying how she “looks like a deflated doll” , “awful” etc.
So based on the person and pictures in question, the responses will vary amongs the commenters. If the person looks hot in them, they will praise. If the person looks too skinny or fat, they often result in insults. Tara her picture presentation is linked by many commenters to being unhealthy.
Some examples:
“She looks awful. But she has not looked too good since about 2004 with her plastic surgery and weight loss. Too bad, she was a pretty young woman at one point.”
“Looks unnatural and unhealthy. I hope she is okay….
And what have some woman with wanting to be ultra skinny and having big boobs ?! (other examples: Nicole Richie and Angelina Jolie – although I love both those woman and I’m jealous of their facial beauty)”
“it doenst look right.her head doesnt fit to the body.i think you can see if its not natural.and please dont come with”maybe shes natural skinny” .i hope shes gonna be healtyh some day”
I understand the observation, and maybe they are right. But…
What I want to point attention towards is the fact that magazines, blogs, papers … often place pictures of these celebrities online or printed, with praise about their figure or a very superficial article. Paying no attention to the person behind it, and for example if they may be having body issues and/or an eating disorder. So one may in fact be praised for starving themselves or binge purging. And someone who will look “beautiful” to the eye of many, may in fact be more unhealthy than someone who look less pretty.

It is also no free room to just spout whatever we think about a person, to start to gossip  in the comment section and call people all kinds of names. Sometimes we feel like we are practicing our free speech, but forget to realize how we are socialized in a certain environment and adopt many things from our environment. So  in order to really find out if our speech is so “free” as we claim it is, we should not just automatically say what pops up in our brains at all times, but think about it and realize the effects we have with our words and if it is something we want to support in this world. In which way is calling people a “beached whale” or “inflated doll” in any way supportive? And I have read nastier things than that. So it is good to place yourself in the shoes of another, and question your own behavior. To not just accept whatever from yourself, but also be critical towards your own doing.
The media has a responsibility as well. Now they can make money out off this, but I don’t think it should be forever allowed. If an outer-space civilization would find us, it wouldn’t be one of the examples I would give about “what we do on earth or who we are as humans” (just giving a crazy example here to make my point). It would be honest though, since it shows a big part of who many humans are. And in a system where you can make profit out of any demand, these things spawn up…

    Little Girl Shaves Head in Act of Solidarity and Gets Kicked Out of School

    As a gesture of solidarity, a little girl from Grand Junction shaved her head for her friend who has cancer, 11-year-old Delaney Clements. What happened next: she got kicked out of school because it ‘violated the dress code policy’.
    What a load of shit. As if a hairstyle defines a person, as if it is ‘less’ than having hair on your head. It is not going to make her dumber or cause the school to set fire. In fact it is probably showing the strenght of her character. A school should praise this, not punish it. I guess they are more focussed on their students to fit in an follow their little rules, than encouraging positive characteristics in people which not necessarily fit in their school policy.
    “It felt like the right thing to do,” Kamryn Renfro said.
    Delaney loved what her friend did.
    “It made me feel very special and that I’m not alone,” she said.
    That school is way too fixed on their set rules, creating a very strict and limiting environment. If you violate a rule then your kicked out, and no one even looks at the starting point. The rule is the law without exceptions. And this is very dangerous because people have various motives for doing what they do. And what this girl did should not be punished.
    “Kamryn’s mother tells 9NEWS that the school headmaster told her Kamryn will be allowed to return to school Tuesday.The school’s board of directors plans to meet Tuesday evening to discuss this situation and the policy.”

    Good! real good.
    If not, that principal should be fired and the policy re-written.


    Sexualization of Children

    How to Silence Students: Threaten Them With Spoilers of Game of Thrones

    Hilarious isn’t it! This one made me laugh out loud when I found it on facebook. So as a teacher you can benefit from being up-to-date with all recent series your students watch.
    This strategy is fast and effective, but brings me to the topic of children having to be quiet in class.
    There is a large difference between schools and their infrastructure, teachers, teaching method etc… this all has an influence on childrens behavior. I think it is especially important for children to be more activly engaged in class, and having an exciting and creative environment.
    Imagine having to spend your days sitting in this classroom for hours :
    Or spending your time in this classroom :
    In the first one there may be a bigger emphasis on listening, obeying, independence , personal achievement etc…
    In the second the emphasis seems to be on creativity, openness, teamwork, communication …
    So the making of the system starts in the classroom, by what we teach our children and how we teach them. Do we teach them to sit quietly and listen the entire time, or do we teach them that to communicate and also bring in their own point of view. Of course, a certain level of respect for the teacher is necessary. And explaining to the children why it is important to be quiet at certain times, is necessary. Because a child adopts things from his or her parents, friends, media and other factors, and in that way the child may for example talk in class as a form of ‘trying to be cool’ for the other students. So instead of yelling or punishing, it will be beneficial to have class discussions about behavior like that, without name calling or making it personal. But to keep it general so that everyone learns to see through such behavior. Because someone who tries to be cool, and others respond positively to it, just enhances that behavior. But when others learn to see through it, they may actually point it out to that student when it happens and in fact help him/her with self-realization.
    Let’s look at science as well.
    Some studies have for example shown that boys often have a lot of trouble sitting still for long periods of time, because their physical bodies cannot sit still for that long. And others have shown how students learn best, like for example being engaged in activities. When I speak for myself, I can say that I learn best when I can DO what I am learning. This tends to ‘stick’ in my brain and gets clearer much faster than if you just hand me a text book or speak theory to me.
    There are significant differences in the ways girls and boys learn, differences which are more substantial than age differences in many ways. In other words, a 7-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy differ, on average, on parameters such as “How long can you sit still, be quiet, and pay attention?” Those differences between a same-age girl and same-age boy are larger than differences between, say, a 7-year-old girl and a 9-year-old girl. Most American schools segregate kids on the basis of age differences: they put 7-year-olds in one classroom and 9-year-olds in another classroom. And yet, on some parameters – such as how long a child can sit still, be quiet, and pay attention – the sex differences (e.g. between the average 7-year-old girl and the average 7-year-old boy) are larger than the age differences (e.g. between the average 7-year-old girl and the average 9-year-old girl).

    Educational psychologists have found fundamental differences in the factors motivating girls vs. factors motivating boys. Researchers have consistently found that “girls are more concerned than boys are with pleasing adults, such as parents and teachers” (Pomerantz, Altermatt, & Saxon, 2002, p. 397). Most boys, on the other hand, will be less motivated to study unless the material itself interests them.
    Best practices for teaching math differ significantly for girls and boys – particularly in arithmetic, algebra, and number theory. With boys, you can stimulate their interest by focussing on the properties of numbers per se. With girls, you want to tie what you’re teaching into the real world. Keep it real and keep it relevant.

    Woman Wants to be as Braindead as Barbie

    Aint kidding. A 38 year old woman does not only want to look as plastic as barbie, she also wants to become as braindead…
    She has been using hypnotherapy sessions 2 to 3 times a week in the hopes that it will decrease her IQ.
    Who dafuq is the lunatic that is providing her this hypnotherapy? If I was a therapist or whatever, I would never agree to such a request. Large parts of the population already get dumbed dump, we shouldn’t support this in people. But that therapist is probably dumbed down him/herself, since he agreed to it and doesn’t look at the reasons why a woman becomes someone that wants to look and “think” like Barbie.
    She said:
    “I don’t like being human, if that makes sense… Natural is boring… I would love to be like, completely plastic.”
    Yeah, being brainless and pre-occupied only with ones own vanity and fantasies will ofcourse be more fun than having to deal with real issues in this world. The system granting her the ability to even spend money on crazy shit like that, deprives others from even having a basic meal every day. I can think of quite some things to make her life less boring. To desire to look a different way, to even go under the knife for it, comes from a dissatisfaction that has an origin. She is playing dumb while people are actually working for her. I am talking about basic things: clothing, food, housing, entertainment… all things people who use their brain less or more make on a daily basis to keep her alive.
    “I’ve had 20 sessions and I’m already starting to feel ditzy and confused all the time”

    Bennett appears to maintain a NSFW Twitter account advertising live camera shows. Her handle, not surprisingly, is “Busty_Doll.”
    The problem is also that people support these kind of ideas,  by paying for it and keep watching live camera shows. In this we are also responsible.
    Oh and btw, barbie is smart as fuck. She had jobs like being a scientists, vet, teacher, doctor…

    jezebel: After falling in love with the doll as a child, she bleached her hair and drove a corvette just like Barbie in her teens, when she took on promotional jobs playing Barbie in toy stores. (It is possible we have met because I dragged my parents to meet Barbie at a grand opening at least twice in my childhood.) Bennett has also undergone extensive cosmetic procedures, including a breast augmentation that enlarged her breasts to a 32JJ and chin contouring in order to make her face resemble Barbie’s more closely. Bennett is currently unemployed and her procedures are paid for by fans who donate in exchange for photos of her dressed as her idol.
    My question is how a woman becomes like that. She gets born as a little baby girl, and somehow grows up to be programmed to desire to cut up her body and insert fake breasts and what else, and even undergoing hypnotherapy to make herself dumb and air-headed.
    barbie-doll__oPtShe doesn’t need publicity and live camera shows, she needs help, mental help. She doesn’t need surgeons and hypnotherapists who will do anything as long as they get paid. There is probably something seriously off in her head. Normally girls who play with barbies don’t get those crazy obsessions.

    And btw : Mission to look like barbie? epic fail
    Here is her in a video:^link:&from=shareembed-syndication

    ‘Vegetarians less healthy than meat-eaters” study debunked

    downloadAn article was posted in the dailymail about Vegetarians supposedly being less healthy than meat eaters, and having a lower quality of life.
    Conclusions of their study: vegetarians visit their doctors more often, are more prone to allergies, cancer, heart problems and bad mental health. They experience more depression and anxiety.
    Actually, some other researchers already took a look before me. What did they get analyzing the data? Almost exactly the opposite results. Read it here:
    “Our results show that a vegetarian diet is associated with a better health-related behavior, a lower BMI, and a higher SES. Subjects eating a carnivorous diet less rich in meat self-report poorer health, a higher number of chronic conditions, an enhanced vascular risk, as well as lower quality of life. In conclusion, our results have shown that consuming a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is associated with better health and health-related behavior. Therefore, public health programs are needed for reducing the health risks associated with a carnivorous diet.
    To my understanding of serious scientific, if someone get results A and !A regarding to the same data-source, then there seems to be something wrong with the methods. Under that conditions it seems very unclear (or even more than that to me), if the results can have a value at all. ”

    Also some extra notes, the sample sizes were way off! So this is why the first study gave bad results for vegetarians:
    comparing 2.2% vegetarians vs. 23.6% consuming a carnivorous diet rich in fruits and vegetables vs. 48.5% eating a carnivorous diet less rich in meat, and 25.7% consuming a carnivorous diet rich in meat).
    Only 2.2 % vegetarians!
    The next study showing vegetarians are healthiers, actually matched the groups to be equal . “The total number of analyzed subjects comprised 330 vegetarians (1) who were each matched to 330 subjects consuming a carnivorous diet rich in fruits and vegetables (2), 330 individuals eating a carnivorous diet less rich in meat (3), and 330 subjects consuming a carnivorous diet rich in meat (4).
    Some more comments on the paper:
    Then these results are devoid of any generalizable data. If your goal was to subtype your prior work, the conclusions on this paper should be “rich young female vegetarians may be sicker”. At best, this would suggest teen-to-30-something women are not the best at both avoiding meat and eating a balanced diet; instead we get comments about public health measures that are needed to prevent the harmful effects of eating vegetables. Additionally, if you wanted to ‘match’ your subjects, why have such a wild difference in the groups? Table 1 shows a range from 15yo poor boys to 80yo middle class females. With only 330 in each group, this is hardly ‘matched’ by ‘certain socio-demographic characteristics’ and not compared to the 15K subjects study reflecting the general population. If you wanted to subgroup, you should have done so with each tier presented in Table 1 – ie vegetarianism impact on 15-19yo, low income only, females only, etc. Or you should have age-adjusted, multi-varient adjusted your prior paper. Instead you simply lowered your power and reran your prior analysis.
    I agree fully with DrSiebler that your papers are arguing the exact opposite thing. While I find your explaination somewhat acceptable, your discussion and abstract never bring up your prior work and never outline such nuance. Given the media’s love of jumping on hyperbolic nonsense, suggestions that ‘vegetarianism causes cancer’ are unethical if you are going to put them out there without any context. What would you want people to take away from both papers in total? Eat vegetarian or not? Limit meat or not? Only eat vegetarian if you are not a rich Australian women under 50? This is what I think you have not answered from DrSeibler – what “public health measures” are you advocating for in paper A and paper !A?;jsessionid=6101CAEBEB2483F1D53C00146A047337?root=78839

    The authors of the first study say:
     In our opinion, it seems not far to seek that persons with worse health consume a vegetarian diet because they try to develop a better health and eating behavior, and not the opposite, that a certain diet (vegetarian) leads to worse health. We therefore state in our discussion that we can neither say anything about causes or effects, nor about long-term consequences. Moreover, we say that further studies are needed to analyze nutritional habits and their association with health.

    Human Barbie Shows How Ugly She is

    article-0-1CE8527E00000578-781_634x556The human Barbie, a.k.a. Valeria Lukyanova said:
    interracial couples are behind a rise in plastic surgery because they are ‘making the human race uglier’
    What an utterly ignorant and UGLY thing to say. She is purely judging beauty by the exterior. But she is showing that in fact she is ugly. No matter what she does to her appearance.
    Another crazy quote from her:

    ‘Remember how many beautiful women there were in the 1950s and 1960s, without any surgery? And now, thanks to degeneration, we have this. A Russian marries an Armenian, they have a kid, a cute girl, but she has her dad’s nose. She goes and files it down a little, and it’s all good.’
    Bitch please.
    In the 50s and 60s you had as much beauty and ugly woman as you have today.
    The styling was different for some, the cultural trends have changed.
    Also many interracials babies are very beautiful in outer appearance.
    And what does it matter anyway. What nose a child has. Seriously… are we going to keep judging each other as if we are objects? And that you can’t have ‘interracial’ marriage because it might make someone ‘less pretty’ ? What is her point? Many so called ‘ugly’ people who breed, also often get ugly babies. It has nothing to do with so called ‘race’.
    But maybe there is just something off in her brain that makes her say all kinds of crazy shit. She admitted in 2013 that she believes she is from another planet – possibly Venus, but she isn’t quite sure… Venus, ok…  temperatures on Venus reach 870 degrees F (465 degrees C), more than hot enough to melt lead. Venus has a hellish atmosphere as well, consisting mainly of carbon dioxide with clouds of sulfuric acid, and scientists have only detected trace amounts of water in the atmosphere. The atmosphere is heavier than that of any other planet, leading to a surface pressure 90 times that of Earth.
    Have fun on venus then.
    And (not a quote from her btw!)
    My working hypothesis about attractiveness: multiracial people tend to be no more and no less good looking than the weighted average of their ancestors. But their greater genetic variety leads many people to assume they are more attractive on the whole.
    To all interracial couples: breed along!
    Another quote:
    ‘Perhaps at some point I was an energy vampire, because I constantly received their negative reactions and enjoyed it. Specifically for them I created posts that would make them angry.’
    Well… maybe you still are, by saying crazy shit.
    Not that it gets me angry, I just find it incredibly stupid and abusive towards humanity.
    it’s people who say those things that make the human race uglier.

    About Miley Cyrus her heart condition

    article-2606056-1D1E91EB00000578-943_634x1023Miley Cyrus had an extreme allergic reaction to antibiotics she was taking, and had to rush to the hospital to get treated. But, it was revealed that she has tachycardia, a faster than normal heartbeat that could lead to a stroke.
    Tachycardia is a heart rate that exceeds the normal range. In general, a resting heart rate over 100 beats per minute is accepted as tachycardia. Tachycardia can be caused by various factors that often are benign. However, tachycardia can be dangerous, depending on the speed and type of rhythm. When the heart beats excessively or rapidly, the heart pumps less efficiently and provides less blood flow to the rest of the body, including the heart itself. The increased heart rate also leads to increased work and oxygen demand by the heart, which can lead to rate related ischemia.
    ‘She could get heart muscle problems and even heart failure at worst,’ Dr Mark Urman told the weekly. ‘She could even end up with a stroke.’
    Who is likely to have Atrial or SVT?
    • SVT is the most common type of arrhythmia in children
    • More common in women, but may occur in either sex
    • Anxious young people
    • People who are physically fatigued
    • People who drink large amounts of coffee
    • People who drink alcohol heavily
    • People who smoke heavily
    So Miley is ticking a couple of these boxes. She is known for partying hard, doing a lot of physical work, drinking alcohol and smoking.  I don’t know if she consumes coffee. Her lifestyle may in fact contribute to her condition, and this is something she has to be careful off.
    To make mattes worse, the Wrecking Ball singer has a love of drugs, something she has freely admitted to several times.
    The Tennessee native has confessed she loves marijuana and Molly, which is also known as MDNA and Ecstasy.
    The ex-fiancé of Liam Hemsworth even wrote a song about pot smoking and has worn costumes to her concert with marijuana leaves on them.
    ‘She knows she’s not supposed to smoke pot or do drugs, but she does it anyway,’ a source told the magazine.
    The recommendations they give regards tachycardia are:
    • Cutting down on coffee.
    • Cutting down on alcohol.
    • Quitting tobacco use.
    • Getting more rest.
    • Slow down physical exertion
    As I read further, I realize she already knew about this condition:
    During her 2009 Miles To Go memoir the blonde admitted she needed to be careful with her health.
    ‘My heart rate increases a lot just from going up a flight of stairs,’ she wrote in the book. ‘There is never a time onstage when I’m not thinking about my heart.’ She also admitted she was born with a hole in her heart.
    Now to get to the point. What I see her is a choice of the mind over the body, and how a self-image based on ego may cause us to destroy our body. Miley has taken on a certain personality, a certain image. This image happens to go together with a wilder lifestyle, drugs and alcohol. All these things are known to be bad for her heart. So then the choice is: will she be able to choose her body over her mind, and not define herself according to a certain image or idea? Because the  extend in which she follows her mind can lead her into more physical harm. The attachment to this image she has about herself may lead to her health deteriorating or even ending in death. So this also shows a point of enslavement, of being enslaved to a certain idea about yourself, and something you want others to think about you and who you are.
    I am only using Miley as an example here, because this can be applied to many of us.
    If you cannot “be yourself” without a man made drug, then what does this say about who you are? It says you are fabricated, that ‘who you are’ is dependent on certain substances, or based on an image and idea. And if this is lost, then suddenly “you” are lost as well. Where in fact did you go? Nowhere, you are still here in the physical (if you are not dead ofcourse). You still have your body, your brain, your organs… you can think, sense, smell, move and everything else. So the only thing that can convince you that you are “less” than you previously were, are thoughts that you allow within your mind. Thoughts that you allow to tell you that you are “less” or “not you”.
    So if a behavior is causing your body harm, and you know it, and you also know it can cause you further health problems and even end up in death. Then which thoughts exactly would lead you to continue that behavior. Which thoughts are connected to emotions that are so strong, that they can convince you to harm your physical body? The body that gives you life and makes you walk on this planet, and enjoy it (if you are not in a deprived position and suffering like many are on this planet unfortunately). I think we take our bodies too much for granted, and give our programmed mind way too much credit and act as a slave towards it.
    If it was up to me, I would know which choice to make, and it would be my body, not my mind. Because the body always has the final say over life and death.

    Why do Vegans look Sick and Pale ?

    Because they don’t :)
    These stereotypes have to be rid out of the world. People look sick and pale on all kinds of diets. And there is nothing wrong with being pale either, it simply means you don’t spend a lot of time in the sun or your skin does not tan easily.
