Gun Control and the Value of Life

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin destroys gun control!
Well worth a listen. Wise man.

He emphasizes:

  • “cultural problem”
  • family breakdown
  • violence
  • desensitization

And as our very own Richard Winkel commented, circumcision may also factor into the equation. After all, violence begets violence.

As a circumcised woman, I have always related better to men than women, and I finally realized it was because I relate better to traumatized people than peaceful people. Circumcision certainly sends the message that you are not valued, not respected, not loved and cherished; that you are no more than a body, a slab of meat; that you must submit to authority because you are powerless, helpless and hopeless. These teachings can stick and need to be seen for what they are, then thoroughly “divorced”, released. They are false, destructive, subconscious mind-control teachings that surely have tormented some who have given up this beautiful gift of life prematurely.

Males in the USA commit suicide four times as often as females and I have often wondered if that might have something to do with circumcision. I tell the story of my childhood interest in suicide in my book The Rape of Innocence: Female Genital Mutilation and Circumcision in the USA. I have also met other circumcised women who have also reported serious attempts at suicide very early in life.

Now that the birthing process is more violent for both baby genders, even though females so far have been spared routine infant circumcision, undue birth trauma and daily stressors are extreme for both, so some girls may be as suicidal and reactive as boys. It’s just not easy being a people – especially in a world where someone sitting in a palatial estate somewhere apparently wants to rule the world… and is working hard to make that happen.

I’d prefer to live in a life-affirming world where no one is traumatized by birth practices and all people are blessed with a peaceful beginning; with wise parents, kind teachers and a safe society; in a world filled with respect for life, joy, love.

Turn The Page or Lose Your Children to Indoctrination

Parents, protect your children’s bodies and minds. “We’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto.” Today’s children are under attack.

The education system is supposed to engage children to open their minds and expand their knowledge. Unfortunately, the “system” is one of indoctrination rather than education. Schools all across the country, and the world for that matter, have been teaching children social and political agendas to raise them with beliefs that are unfounded, oftentimes fear mongering and completely distorted from truth, while breaking down the family unit. Books that once contained a moral lesson in 16 out of 25 pages from 1810 have decreased to less than one page out of 25 in 1950. It’s tragic, and it’s not going to stop until parents pay attention, create change, and turn the page.

Turn The Page Before Your Children Have Nightmares & False Perceptions

please don't eat the children

In a charter school fifteen miles outside of Denver, Colorado, a young boy has suffered sleepless nights and nightmares because of books he’s read in school. His mother Meleah Rubio, took it upon herself to volunteer at the school’s library, and quickly discovered the shelves were filled with horror, witchcraft, sorcery, and monsters under the bed . . .

Illegal Immigrants Drive Child Sex Crime Charges in North Carolina

North Carolina data indicates massive hidden problem nationwide

In North Carolina, during the past 18 months, more than 331 illegal aliens have been charged with 1,172 child rapes and child sexual assaults, according to data collected by an independent researcher.

James Johnson, who tracks the data on his website NCFIRE.info (North Carolinians For Immigration Reform and Enforcement), says he is only able to gather data from 30 of the state’s 100 counties, which means it’s likely the statewide count is significantly higher…

Open Letter to Doctors and Medical Organizations

This was originally written for pediatricians who are represented by www.HealthyChildren.org – with a few modifications for this blog post. Feel free to use parts of it or all of it and edit it to your heart’s content…

I understand that your organization represents:
“…pediatricians committed to the attainment of optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.”

If this is so, then I would respectfully suggest that this organization refrains from recommending foreskin retraction and circumcision. Neither contributes to “the attainment of optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.” In fact, there is quite a bit of evidence that retraction creates a host of iatrogenically induced problems, that can lead to a “need” for circumcision – and circumcision can be detrimental to “the attainment of optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.” Circumcision has even led to death in some cases. Infection due to circumcision, bleeding due to circumcision – these are not all that rare.

Plus, an adult retracting a child’s foreskin could rightfully be interpreted as a sexual assault, as can circumcision itself. The child does not know why adults are touching his private parts and cutting on them.

It is highly understandable that the young mind can see circumcision as sexual abuse. The details of the memory might be clouded but the body never forgets. Most circumcised men are reminded something is wrong every time they go to the bathroom or attempt to engage in sexual relations. They never achieve the height of ecstasy they know they could and should.  They know something is wrong, very, very wrong. But their expressed concerns are often scoffed at by trained professionals, who are perhaps themselves circumcised and therefore in denial of their own condition, or embarrassed to address the subject of genitalia.

Let me tell you my story.

When I was a little girl, a little white, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant girl, in Kansas in the 1950s, I was circumcised by a probably well-meaning physician who might have believed that female genital mutilation was conducive “to the attainment of optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.” Genitals were private in those days – nobody talked about them – so I lived in a secret hell for many years, suffering from conditions usually associated with males in our society: night terrors, suicidal ideation, depression, misogyny, anger, rage, and above all, an aversion to all things medical. It is difficult to get a circumcised person into a doctor’s office, even for an annual checkup.

However, there came a time – after age 50 – when I discovered I’d been circumcised. Thankfully, I had a background in and understanding of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and realized that I had been badly traumatized and, as I saw it, betrayed by my mother, for she was the one who had allowed the doctor to cut me. Once I recognized the problem, I was able to do the healing work to release the fear and dread that had followed me, wherever I went, all my life.

But not all who were circumcised even realize they were cut and very few get to the point of healing the PTSD they’ve carried from infancy. Many of the aware yet still unhealed are those you see demonstrating at medical conferences with bright red circles at the crotch of their pure white suits.

The “aware but still unhealed” men – and women – are for the most part angry that they were hurt as children and angry that as adults they do not have the full natural, functional bodies they were born with. It also pains them that even to this day, children are still being subjected to unnecessary cosmetic genital surgery. And I fully understand their grief. Sorrow expressed by the unhealed often looks like anger and rage.

I pray you listen, actually hear, look, really see, and let this message sink deeply into your hearts. Begin treating birth as the amazing, awe-inspiring wonder that it is, women as human beings worthy of great respect, and the children they bear as conscious beings who deserve protection, love, care and “the attainment of optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being.” – not just slabs of meat.

I am sorry if you too were hurt by circumcision as a child, but the lesson to learn from our own misfortunes is to never treat another as you were treated when you were hurt. To pass on the abuse is a failure to learn the lesson. If you still think circumcision is a valid medical procedure, you are among the wounded. A cursory objective investigation would serve to convince the adult in you that circumcision is – quite frankly – a barbaric torture and has no place in a civilized world.

Respectfully,

Psychiatry and the American Soldier @JennyHatch

Someone needs to investigate the psychology (and finances) of proponents of these drugs for soldiers. It’s an irresponsible and sloppy treatment method to throw multiple psych meds at patients. Each one carries dangers, such as suicide, and violence against others.

While watching this excellent video, keep your finger on the pause button, because it contains lots of good information.

Sister Charlotte – Testimony of a Roman Catholic nun

For twenty-two years, “Sister Charlotte” (she never revealed her true name in public) was a member of a Roman Catholic convent of nuns. From a very young age, she thought that this would be the best way to redeem her family from the torments of “purgatory”. She graphically describes many of the terrible tortures and suffering she endured in the dungeons of her convent and how God mercifully rescued her from this life. Two years after publically revealing her experiences, she disappeared. Listener discretion advised.
