Yes, the paernts of that kid are fucked up.

Yes, the people lauding him are fucked up.

No, that does not mean pedos are about to be mainstreamed.

I-it's just ONE groomed sexualized degenerate troon kid being promoted by, literally, the mainstream! It doesn't mean anything!

So what kind of evidence do you require? At the moment you just handwave everything away as not relevant or indicative of anything serious.
But I do often point out that I write both science fiction and fantasy. Its just that the science fiction is usually titled technical proposal and the fantasy is titled budget proposal.

Zogs got a point. American circulation is around 3.5 million, according to Wiki. If anything, pushing the tranny shit is just a strategy to stay relevant.

Who the hell still reads a weekly?

Total circulation for Time Magazine, little over 3 million. Newsweek: "just over one hundred thouand", see the Wikipedia article; a fucking trainwreck that is completely irrelevant. Another elitist publication, The New Yorker, barely over 1.2 million and thats for jan. 2016. Nobody can say a liberal rag such as the Village Voice - 120,000 - is of national importance or reach. None of this pap is read outside liberal bubbles and I doubt a single Trump voter thinks high enough of NatGeo's gender hysteria's to buy it. These stories aren't worth the paper its printed on (and you can bet the average Trump voter happily agrees: 9 out of 10 Trump-related articles are exaggerations to the point of parody). They're cheerleading for an audience they know that will applaud degeneracy anyways, all fishing from the same ever shrinking pond.

Um, teenage marriage IS legal. In fact, in West Virginia, you can get married at 15 if you have a parent and judge consent.

Evidence that mainstream US normies will ever support legalized pedophilia?

That's not how subversion really works, now is it? You just don't kick in the front door while unleashing a big pink banner that reads "WE FUCK KIDS". Think how long normalizing openly gay relationships and gay marriage took time. They are playing the long game, but I think they will fail because the instinct to protect kids is very deeply instilled in (normal) humans.
But I do often point out that I write both science fiction and fantasy. Its just that the science fiction is usually titled technical proposal and the fantasy is titled budget proposal.

The thing you are always forgetting is that we have a culture that freaks out over consent. Men can have their lives ruined over issues of consent. And the difference between Adam and Steve buttbanging and getting homo married vs pedolove or beastiality is that it is a huge established fact that kids and animals can't consent

Nobody arguing gay or tranny rights has ever tried to advance the argument that it's about consent.

I get it; you feel that gays are all pedos and the entire gay rights agenda is an agenda for kidfucking. If you can prove that to mainstream America, everyone will wake and we'll recriminalize homosex. But that is about as likely it is that even with another 20 years of slow subversion people will start letting their 4 year olds get molested. Or that there will be zero legal consequences.

Will. Not. Happen.

:jesse:

Imagine time traveling to 1998 to tell Joe Normie that in 20 years there will be gigantic billboards advertising a child drag queen. That drag queens will be reading to kids in libraries. That there'll be a drag queen cartoon. That drag queens and trannies are constantly being shoved down our throats on TV, in magazines, on the news. Do you think the average American back then would say, "Oh, sure, that seems normal and reasonable based on our current culture"?

Even easier: In 1988, what evidence was there that US normies would ever accept nationwide gay marriage by federal law?

And the Commies and Liberals have a slogan which is even worse, it's treason, they say: "It's better to be red than dead." We say this: "You don't have to be Red and you don't have to be Dead. Not dead. Not Red. Dead Reds"

Gays had been more and more mainstream through the 70s and 80s. Again, just because consenting gay sex was legalized is nothing close to legalizing adults fucking 4 year olds.

Video Shows Toddlers Understand Consent, from Teen Vogue.

Quote
Well, a new video from Lindsay Amer, who runs the YouTube channel Queer Kid Stuff shows exactly why there's no excuse not to grasp consent. Even toddlers understand it.
In a video alongside her trusty teddybear, Teddy, Lindsay explains what consent is. She asks Teddy if they've ever noticed that Lindsay asks if they're ready before they start every video, and waits until Teddy says they are to start. This, she says, is consent. "Consent is about consenting or giving permission to someone for something," Lindsay says. But in her explanation, Lindsay proves that there's really no reason for anyone not to understand consent, since it's something that we even practiced it as toddlers.
"The easiest example is sharing," Lindsay says. "When someone asks you to share your toy with them, you can always say yes or no. When you're playing with someone, you should share your toys because it's the nice thing to do, but you always have that choice to give or not give consent."
Exactly. Of course this video is for children, so it's important to note that, when it comes to sex, you do not have to ever consent because it's the nice thing to do, it's always solely up to you whether or not anyone thinks you "should" have sex with them. But, at its core, Lindsay is right sharing toys honestly sums up consent. The most important part is not whether someone says yes or no to sharing their toys, Lindsay points out, it's about hot the person requesting it responds.
"The most important thing to remember about consent is that you should always respect when someone else says no," Lindsay says. "That is their choice to make, not yours."
Another example? When someone asks to hug you. Lindsay points out that you never have to hug someone, you can say yes or no. And, as always, Lindsay sends out an important reminder that yes always means yes, and that basically anything else means no.
"Any answer that isn't the word yes, also means no," she says.
So there you have it. Consent really is that simple. And if toddlers can understand, so can the rest of us.

How Calling Kevin Spacey a Pedophile Hurts the Gay Community

Quote from: some Jew
Eight months ago, my colleague Gabriel Rosenberg and I, responding to the outrage around Milo Yiannoupolis comments on gay intergenerational sex, explored how gender and sexuality may complicate the ethics of sex across age difference. Let me be as clear as possible that Spaceys alleged conduct, imposing himself unwanted on a 14-year-old boy, is in no way defensible, nor is closeted queerness an excuse that authorizes bad behavior. (Spaceys statement doesnt dispute either of these points.) However, we can condemn the alleged events of Rapps story without falling into the trap of fueling moral panic around the specter of the pedophile. And in its pitchfork-and-torches response, thats exactly what the gay community is doing. It used to be straights who pedophiled gays to deny them civil rights and social inclusion. Now we apparently pedophile our own for moral purification and self-satisfaction.

So forcing yourself on a 14 year old is the problem, and freaking out about an adult homo banging a 14 year old is harmful to the community. If he had asked nicely it would have been A-OK to slam that kid's ass.

I could go on but I'm phoneposting. Erode the meaning of man and woman, blur them together, and you're not far from "age is just a number".

Explain to me then, what logic is it exactly that makes one jump from 'blurred distinction between man/woman' to "age is just a number"?

While the Teen Vogue article is creepy and weird - Teen Vogue as a whole is fucked up-, the part you quoted isn't advocating pedophilia or the abolishment of age of consent laws (can't be bothered to read the whole piece, maybe they do it someplace else). They have a toddler explain consent isn't a difficult concept... so simple even a toddler can understand it. Their method's utterly retarded but the goal, saying that age of consent isn't difficult to understand, I wouldn't call that degenerate or outlandish. Unless I'm missing something obvious?

If any of you honestly believe the liberal drum beaters are gonna let a Milo or a Kevin Spacey or some anonymous perv driving around schools in a beaten up ice cream van, get within a 500 ft their precious offspring, that they'll say "Oh gosh look, it's a poor oppressed child lover", then you're completely delusional. Liberals find great comfort in their constant virtue signalling and they can sustain it without consequence, because they know chances are slim what they advocate will affect them personally - thats the power of their social contract: "We can say A and can support A because any negative effects of A are for 'The perpetual Other' to deal with", and exceptions make the rule. More importantly, they don't give a fuck when it happens to the other, because it mostly happens in ghettos and white trash areas - places they hate. Perhaps they even believe those people deserve it. When push comes to shove, the liberal waste products who peddle this shit won't hesitate to call 911 if someone nasty touches their kids and, just like us, they wanna see the sick fucks hang.

The liberals pushing this shit live in gated communities with armed guards and their kids go to private schools. They won't be affected by further efforts to destroy society because they always arrange it so that they never have to enter society to begin with. Like you don't think anyone who argues for the right of six foot linebacker coocoo cases to enter the women's room while LARPing as a pretty princess is going to make a habit of actually using public restrooms this side of San Francisco?

Is it going to take a homo buttfucking a toddler on a tube porn site to get you to see where this slippery slope can end?

So it's just normal that this magazine aimed at teenagers peddles so much sexual deviancy and degeneracy. HOW did Teen Vogue become so very fucked up exactly? Is it really just the last gasp of an obsolete institution? Strange how the same thing is pushed simultaneously through so many different vectors. It's not like, oh, we're going bankrupt, time to advocate HRT for toddlers, surely this will keep us afloat!

Teen Vogue ended up killing it's print edition last November, after they tried too hard to advocate for infantile anal sex that year's summer.

https://pjmedia.com/parenting/teen-vogue-shutters-shortly-publishing-guide-anal-sex-teen-girls/

Prior to that, a youtuber known as Activist Mommy (a.k.a. Elizabeth Johnston) literally roasted the magazine. Her crusade against this quintessential shitlib magazine (which got her banned from Twitter and demonetized by YouTube) may have helped.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39Z5xC8rpQw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39Z5xC8rpQw</a>

Teen Vogue editor Phillip Picardi replied to parents concerned about the corruption of their children with a picture too vulgar and disgusting to reproduce here.

Teens have been targeted by the magazine for other forms of progressive corruption.

Quote
Teen Vogue has emerged as a critical voice for Gen-Z and Millennials to rail against the Trump administration, as well as a platform to highlight diversity issues.

The markets for Trump-bashing and cultural Marxism (a.k.a. diversity propaganda) are thoroughly saturated. Cond Nast axing the print version of his vile outlet is a hopeful indication that the market for egging on children to engage in depraved and harmful sex acts does not exist.

Such claims are ab-so-fucking-lutely bizarre and that is why the magazine is flourishing :rolleyes:

It's online presence is virtually non-existent save for the attention it gets from people like us. And they know damn well they're irrelevant, and for that reason alone Teenage Vogue-esque publications up the ante with every new social hype: outdo the original hysteria, and in doing so, try to outsmart the rest ("We were the first!!"), cross your fingers it catches on, rinse and repeat until it works. It won't.

So what kind of evidence do you require? At the moment you just handwave everything away as not relevant or indicative of anything serious.

Evidence that mainstream US normies will ever support legalized pedophilia?

:jesse:

Imagine time traveling to 1998 to tell Joe Normie that in 20 years there will be gigantic billboards advertising a child drag queen. That drag queens will be reading to kids in libraries. That there'll be a drag queen cartoon. That drag queens and trannies are constantly being shoved down our throats on TV, in magazines, on the news. Do you think the average American back then would say, "Oh, sure, that seems normal and reasonable based on our current culture"?

Even easier: In 1988, what evidence was there that US normies would ever accept nationwide gay marriage by federal law?

Gays had been more and more mainstream through the 70s and 80s. Again, just because consenting gay sex was legalized is nothing close to legalizing adults fucking 4 year olds.

I don't think we're heading towards "It's OK to fuck kids." I think we're headed towards, "This guy fucked a kid, but he can't help it he has a mental illness." I don't think it's intentional. I think it's an example of concept creep where you start of with, "It's not Jim's fault he had a meltdown at work. He's having mental health issues" to "It's not Jim's fault he robbed a liquor store. He developed a drug addiction as a means of dealing with his PTSD" to "It's not Jim's fault he touched a kid for whatever reason."

We're going down this weird road, where the argument is everything that you are is just a series of chemical reactions inside your brain and when that chemical balance is off you have no control over what you do, and it's used to absolve people with addictions and mental health issues of crimes, but if you follow that line of reasoning to its logical conclusion, you can only possibly end with the idea that free will does not exist, as everyone's brains are just a series of chemical reactions between hormones that they have no control over. People argue that a mental illness should have no less stigma than a broken leg. Does it not follow that faulting someone for not having the cognitive ability to see the world in such a way that they agree with your politics or morals is the same as faulting someone for not having the physical strength to lift a heavy box? If the the society that puts the pedophile in jail despite the fact that his actions are a result of chemicals and hormones in his brain is made up of people whose brains are only a series of chemical reactions and hormones they have no control over, it just kind of brings us back to square one, doesn't it? I think it's just a really redundant, unproductive line of reasoning to pursue in the long run. It can only end in this nihilistic notion that everything is outside your control and therefore nothing you do matters. I think people are a lot happier and more productive just pretending we are special beings put here by an immortal paternal being who loves us as his children, and that's better for society in the grand scheme of things.

I think the deterministic no-free-will model of human existence is probably correct.  However, I also think acting as if we do have free will has instrumental value for how society is organised.  Even if there are some people who just could not under any circumstances not fuck children , there will be many many many times more who will only fuck children if the consequences aren't there.  And even for the guy who just couldn't stop himself no matter the case, I'd still much prefer him to be in jail because he is a damaged unit.  So, I don't think believing in determinism and giving free passes to people necessarily go hand-in-hand, even though that is one possible outcome and certainly many who advocate against free will would argue for it.
