Anonymous asked:

where does sexual attraction to children fit in?

A

asexualityresources:

[Trigger warning: child abuse]

Hello anon,

This is a blog that shares asexuality resources, and none of the administrators or moderators feel qualified to answer this question. I personally do not know enough about sexual attraction to children to say where it “fits in”, and as I have neither experienced sexual attraction to children, nor been a child recipient of sexual attraction, I do not have the tools to answer this. 

However, I have found some articles related to this matter that you may find of interest:

  1. What is a Paedophile? WebMD
  2. Research- Pedophiles, Victims of Violence
  3. Profile of a Pedophile, AboutNews
  4. Paedophilia: Bringing Dark Desires to LightThe Guardian, 2013.
  5. "If I’m attracted to children, I must be a monster", dw

The views expressed in these articles do not necessarily represent the views of Asexuality Resources or its staff; I have posted them to allow you to read up about it and come to your own conclusion. I will say that, regardless of one’s sexual preferences, this blog does not condone acting upon sexual attraction towards children. Child sexual abuse, or any kind of abuse, is not okay. 

If any followers have any other information on this topic or are more qualified to speak about this, please let us know– we welcome your input. 

– Sebastian.

Friendly reminder to check your breasts while you’re just sitting there scrolling the internet, then reblog so your followers do the same. Two people I know were just diagnosed within the same week.

FOREVER RE-BLOG WHEN I SEE THIS ON MY DASH

DO IT LADIES, IT CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE

so painfully relevant in my life right now :(

As a nurse in a clinic that frequently diagnoses breast cancer, let me say that age has NOTHING TO DO WITH IT! I have seen many as young as 25! But Please do this at least no more than once or twice a month. You won’t be able to feel a gradual change if you check your breasts everyday. Look for hard abnormal lumps. Soft, mobile masses are normal. Cancers LITERALLY feel as hard as marbles. But anything that is abnormal for you should be checked out.

Let me say that these are very important. Due to high risk of breast cancer in my family, I always gave to be on guard, but every woman should do it regardless.

Pretty happy that people may actually be checking breasts because of my post. The two people that were diagnosed with cancer have started treatment and one has lost all her hair already. This was for them. :)

All boobie having persons (basically all persons since male bodied humans have boobles too) needs to keep on dis

Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.
Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS
BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN

Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.

The Ice Bucket Challenge

me-against-the-music:

While I have survived the initial bout of nominations in New Zealand, with the return of the challenge having gone viral in the States, there is a chance I may be nominated. So far, both my brothers were nominated back in June but didn’t nominated me so there’s still a possibility I will be nominated and wreak my vengeance… in nominating.

With the resurgence coming from the US, I had seen the odd (and usually the same) celebrity Ice Challenge videos so I looked into it… yeah… the videos were all over the place from youtube, to twitter to vimeo to instagram. So I decided I needed a list of the ones I have found so far.

Edit: I saw this pop up while this post was being reblogged so here is a mini-list of links:

So here we go. (NOTE: I am not American so I didn’t include many of the US athletes or political figures since I have no idea who most of them are. Like I know who Tom Brady is because of Family Guy.) Oh and the list will keep growing as more and more gauntlets are thrown down (that means people/celebrities being nominated)

The list (as of 18 August 2014 NZ Time) and in no particular order.

Ok, so I figured that perhaps not everyone is aware that this is available to use now, especially the younger folk out there.
This is OraQuick, and it is an FDA-Approved, in-home HIV test that provides results in about 20 minutes. I’m not sure about the availabilty of this product (or similar ones) in other countries, but in the U.S. you can purchase these at Walgreens for a mere 35 bucks, and you can even have them delivered to your door for complete anonymity.
Reading the results is easy. One line you are negative, two lines you are positive.

Why is this important? Well I know for a fact that a lot of guys say they are HIV negative without really getting tested, or they base that on some really old test result. There is no excuse now. You can get this in the mail if you want, and know for sure in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Its good peace of mind. And if you meet someone new and you are planning on playing around, its an easy and cheap thing to do to know where you guys stand. It builds trust right off the bat. Being safe is not just about wearing a condom. Its a combination of many things like trust, knowing the person, closeness, and being a good judge of character. Now on top of that you can keep up with your HIV status on a regular basis. :)

This is important for people to know, I never knew it existed

This is how my boyfriend and I tested before we started bareback in together after being with each other for 3 months. It’s super easy.
I know that it’s scary, believe me, I don’t practice risky behaviors and my anxiety was through the roof. It’s so important though you guys.
They even give you a non-descript bag to dispose of everything in.

I’m glad this is going around. :) Spread the word.

I’ve used this! It was comforting to be able to do this in my own home. Testing for something like this but it is definitely worth the purchase. It was easy to use!

If you want me to send anything I got or any info I have ( I’m a Criminal Justice student) don’t hesitate to ask. 
I have seen a few of these but a post with them compiled may help more. I will be editing these as I get it all prepared I’ll use the Ferguson Protest Aid tag for any updates I do. Stay safe everyone.

Q

sunvapor asked:

What the fucks happening in Ferguson?

A

clehmentine:

Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (EDIT: i’ve discovered that the Brown family wishes for any and all photos of Michael lying in the streets to be removed. please respect this and do so)

There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.
