People are finally starting to be concerned about the effect of pornography on kids
I found this and thought I would reblog it.

I found it very interesting that two stories it the web about the same time, dealing with similar issues. One talked about the impact of pornography on children, the other talked about pornography grooming children for the sex industry…finally people are starting to put the pieces together!! ——— Lifesitenews.com reports A UK children’s help line charity says that an alarming number of children as young as 12 think watching pornography is just a normal part of life, though many of them have seen images that haunt them and some are worried about being addicted to porn. A survey of about 700 youngsters by ChildLine, a service of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), found that 20 percent of 12 to 13-year-olds said they had seen upsetting or shocking pornography, about 12 percent in the same age group admitted to having participated in making a sexually explicit video, and one in ten said they fear they already have a porn addiction. “We know from the young people who contact ChildLine that viewing porn is a part of everyday life, and our poll shows that one in five 12 to 13-year-olds thinks that watching porn is normal behaviour,” said Peter Liver, a director of ChildLine Services. “Children of all ages today have easy access to a wide range of pornography,” Liver told the  BBC . “If we as a society shy away from talking about this issue, we are failing the thousands of young people it is affecting.” Rosalind Prober of Beyond Borders  was talking with NewsTalk980 and she said “Porn today is not your yesterday’s porn of Playboy, Hustler magazine — nothing like that,” said president Rosalind Prober of  Beyond Borders  during an interview on John Gormley Live on Wednesday. “It involves a lot of degradation, a lot of violence, a lot of male-on-female pain, non-consensual type of activities, group activities,” she said, adding that exposure to porn is impacting children…..Prober said through their research they found that girls are being monitored fairly well online, but boys are not. She said that some experts at the symposium described male sexuality as being “hijacked” because  boys are looking to porn to educate them about sex. But the message they are getting doesn’t have anything to do with relationships, love or intimacy.   The post People are finally starting to be concerned about the effect of pornography on kids appeared first on No Working Title .

Creativity is Vulnerability 

To risk failure in the face of your peers is to risk rejection. Therefore creativity can only thrive in an organization where vulnerability is cultivated.  Dr John A King The post Creativity is Vulnerability  appeared first on Dr. John A. King .

What do you do when a dream is attacked? How to keep your hope alive when every day is not a Friday?

I use to love sailing as a kid. There is nothing like sailing on a clear day. Water calm. Breeze perfect. Sun shining. Out and about on Sydney Harbour Flying is like that. I have my private pilots license and sometimes manage to find an excuse to a plane somewhere for business. Somewhere that would take us 2 to […] The post What do you do when a dream is attacked?

Difficult Days
I like this and thought I would reblog it.

I am tired Tired of the battle Weary of the struggle Worn out Worn down by constant effort to stand And the song of the Cheap whore of suicide Like a moist siren, wooing me to sweet repose, Calls Ever calls In a deafening whisper That bellows Drowning out the voice of hope Denying and possible future With finality pronouncing My tomorrow D.O.A.

You’re Just Fucking Wrong
I like this and thought I should reblog it.
-----

Well… I don’t know what else to say…I’m all about giving people a voice and negotiating to consensus but the bottom line is sometimes they just aren’t right and at some point we need to be comfortable taking a stand for what we know IS right. I believe that one of the issue people who have suffered abuse face is a weird mixture of self doubt and the need for affirmation. We have been led to a place where we have come to doubt all we believe, yet we desperately need the approval of others, often times those that have abused us. The result is that we don’t take a stand for what we believe, even when we know it is correct. You see, sometimes they are wrong and others times they are FUCKING wrong.
