Default Re: Anything EXCITING happening yet? YAAWN!

Thanks for the reply, Michael.

Afraid your information on homosexuality is a bit out-dated, however. Recent studies show that there is definitely a different wiring, shall we say, in the brains of homosexuals. They respond to human pheremones differently than others of the same sex, thus the attraction to members of their own sex. This is true, whether or not they have ever acted on their attraction or not. Fetishists do not exhibit this different biochemistry in the brain. One is a learned behavior (fetish) and one is not, at the most basic biochemical level.

As far as choices among newsstands and movie houses, that perception may be reality where you are but it is not necessarily so in this country. Many contracts from newsstand suppliers and movie suppliers are simply a drop (shipment) of the standard offerings. Now, whether they are prominently displayed in their store or not, is the choice of the owner but not necessarily what is shipped to them.

Owners of newsstands and movie houses could argue the same as news media does that they're just giving the customer what they want but this perception could be a simple rationalization in most cases, just like it is in the news media. Who ever said that people prefer to hear only bad news? How about a balance between good and bad? We don't need to know about every kid or adult who goes off half-cocked and thus encourage copycatters. It's a tragedy for the folks involved but it doesn't have to concern everyone around the world. On the other hand, if there's an epidemic, and it could affect us and others around us, it's good to be forewarned.

The media, in general, has gone so far overboard in their sensationalism that they distort people's perceptions, inhibit progress toward solving problems, often keep negative emotions stirred up deliberately, influence creation and passage of bad legislation, and act as a negative influence on young people and folks who may be emotionally unstable...all in the name of news (and greed). It's no wonder we're seeing a rise in crime among the young. They haven't been given any other popular role models outside of the family to relate to that are positive and healthy.
