Does Age Really Matter?

If you've read the title of this post, you probably already have a few different answers to this question. It could be as simple as yes-or-no or as complicated as yes and no. You could have an entire speech about how it doesn't matter. You could have a speech about how it does matter and pedophilia is a real problem in the United States.

Pedophilia is defined as a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children. The keywords here are "primary" and "exclusive", but there's other key things to know about pedophilia, especially in the United States. For the condition to be diagnosed, an individual must either act on their sexual urges or experience significant distress as a result of their urges or fantasies. Without these two criteria, a person may have a pedophilic sexual orientation but not pedophilic disorder. An estimated twenty

May 2018 Television Cancellations and Renewals

So I decided to take a break from blogging about cancellations and renewals, especially since the summer doesn't have a lot of those. So I'm lumping together May, June, and July into one blog post. As far as Summer television, the only thing I've really been watching that's "new" is The Proposal and Cloak & Dagger. Both are okay. I'm not obsessed with them.

Media Reform

On Facebook, there was an article posted approximately two years ago. It was talking about police officers and it used very pointed language. I forgot about it until Facebook informed me about this post I made after reading the article. It is as follows:

I generally try not to speak on topics like this online. But, I read this article and it just irritated me so badly.

In all seriousness, I have many problems with this article. It's not because of Alton Sterling, though he's another addition to a exceedingly large issue. The media spins articles like this so hard. They use specific words to grab you by the stomach: "police killings", "targeting", and others. If you heard police fatalities or any other combination of words meaning the same thing, it doesn't resonate the same. Also, I would love to see a breakdown of police shooting fatalities. Media has listed 500+ so far this year, but does that include people like that Texas mom who murdered her daught…
