Once again

I'm sickened by young people mis-using a valuable resource. We have an 18 year old gay man, having consensual sex, and his room mate films it and posts it on the Internet. What a sick piece of shit. Where are the boundaries? Why do certain people figure this is OK? When is it going to stop? Who's to blame?

Poor Tyler Clementi figured he had no recourse, but to jump off a bridge. He was victimized, violated on such a level it begs belief and the cops are *considering* charges. Hate crime charges. Big fucking deal, they should be locked up for years just for being insensitive little fucktards.

Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei you sicken me, you make me wonder about today's youth. Between you two and the bunch who watched and filmed a gang rape, I'm really gobsmacked.

What are you thinking when you post these sex crimes? Does it make you feel important? Does it make your sex life better? Are you just sad little boys who've never had a hope in Hell of getting a girl to sleep with you? Are you so homophobic that this kind of behaviour seems right?

Shame on you, doesn't seem enough. Shame on all of us for letting you become so desensitized that you would even come up with this crap in the first place. Put down the cell phones and the ipads and the laptops and have a face to face conversation with an actual real live person. It's how we did things in the *olden* days, believe me it works.

We seem as a society to be raising a bunch of sociopaths. Hunkered in their dark rooms eating junk and posting junk.

Profile of the Sociopath
This website summarizes some of the common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths.

Glibness and Superficial Charm

Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

Incapacity for Love

Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.

Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.

Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

  1. I think a number of us are sickened over all of this, but you so eloquently put it to print. Thank you for speaking out on this issue. I am still too mad to put it into words....
