I obviously can't come to terms with the fact that you want to blackmail us like a mobster by saying:
"if you don't let us do X, then we will fuck you up even worse"
REGARDLESS of whether it's harmful or harmless or whether the establishment is right or wrong, this is simply
blackmail and this attitude must cannot be yielded to, even if it leads to increased violence and abuse rates.
Omg that is the most retarded thing I've ever heard. I'm not fucking blackmailing you at all. Dude, like honestly are you fucking kidding me right now
1. We need to criminalize looking at CP to lower child sex abuse rates! This is unsubstantiated rhetoric!
2. Oh, science says that criminalizing CP viewing actually increases child sex abuse rates!
3. We cannot decriminalize looking at CP, because that is giving into the demands of blackmail!!!!
Completely fucking nonsensical, like I have to wonder if you are trolling to think that makes any sense at all.
I don't think looking at CP is really that bad, but I think the public opinion against CP is real and not entirely the product of brainwashing, like to some extent it is, but I still think the majority of people would be seriously grossed out if you told them you masturbate to videos of people having sex with children. They would want to gang up and beat you up and that would be NATURAL and instinctive.
I don't think most males give a fuck if you look at people fucking JBs tbh, that hasn't been my perception. Maybe legit children though, but really the same thing can be said about homosexuals until fairly recently, people would be grossed out and want to lynch you not that long ago if you told them you masturbated to gay sex, they could even throw you in prison for it. Going off you gut reaction to something is primitive, barbaric, and for wild animals, humans have cognition such that they should be able to understand that just because you fap to something doesn't mean you will do it, and that no harm is caused to anyone by the act of fapping to anything, so there is no legitimacy to criminalizing it.
They originally made unsubstantiated arguments about CP viewing, that later turned out to be false. In fact, many of them even want to criminalize fucking cartoon CP, which doesn't even involve real children. People get locked up in many countries for ordering fucking sex dolls that look too young. It's completely irrational, what do they think they are doing saving the doll from being abused? And really practically nobody has any right to act like pedos are inherently a threat and must therefore all be imprisoned, if they have ever fantasized about doing something bad then the same logic could be turned against them, in reality tons of people want to do and fantasize about doing all kinds of fucked up shit, but they particularly care about fucked up shit that isn't evolutionarily advantageous, but that is just primitive as fuck, why does it matter if something bad is evolutionarily advantageous or not?
I'm not sure about that as I have very little personal experience with drugs so it's very hard to make a comparison.
I know a lot of people who use alcohol, some of them are fucked up but most of them are OK.
But I knew very few people who used drugs, but all of them happened to be fucked up.
So I cannot make any personal statement about this, but I also don't give a fuck as I have zero curiosity to try them myself. I've only tried pot a few times and it was groce and I would never try that again.
Marijuana is not a drug I would particularly suggest you to base your experience of drugs on, it is quite paranoia inducing for me, and like I do enjoy it but it isn't at all a drug I would use as a template by which to judge other drugs. 2c-b is a better template drug because it has a range of effects that cover a wide assortment of drugs, marijuana is pretty unique in its effect profile. I mean it's hard to really explain to someone who has such little experience, but pretty much the difference between weed and MDMA is equivalent to the difference between smoking a cigarette and drinking alcohol just in terms of the distinction between them for example (not comparing either of the first two to either of the second two). However if you don't care to experiment with drugs I think that is entirely your right and all, but I always feel like people like you just don't know really know what you're missing tbh, especially in terms of psychonaut experiences with psychedelics, but yeah that is your choice to make.
Pretty damn much everyone I know has used drugs or continues to do so, all of my immediate family uses or has used an assortment of drugs, all of my friends from high school onwards were polydrug users, like to my perception fucking everybody uses drugs tbh, so I just see drug users as normal people largely, though I will say that regular users of drugs like heroin, cocaine, and meth, tend to have an over representation of criminal assholes, but at the same time it's hard for me to really say that this was caused by their drug use per-se. In any case, even those drugs should be legalized and regulated, there are significant benefits to legalizing and regulating heroin even, though of course I would never suggest people to really use these drugs, if someone asked me my honest opinion on should they smoke meth or use heroin, I would say, I smoked meth like 18 times or something like that from 14-16 and I enjoyed it, but I would suggest MDA/MDMA, Amphetamine, or Modafinil instead depending on why you are considering to try meth, because meth induces cravings pretty rapidly and they are like nicotine cravings in that they last for essentially ever and only reduce in their strength, but tbh if you just smoke it once or something you are probably going to be just fine, and even after smoking it like 18 times (and sniffing it once!) I never was really seriously impacted by it, like I get little cravings for it every now and then which is kind of annoying since it was so long ago that I used it and so few times, but it's nothing seriously bad. I used heroin over three days, haven't used it again since, I only sniffed (and maybe smoked srs cannot recall) it though and didn't IV it and I hear IV gets people hooked faster, but yeah, like I don't think if you sniff a line of heroin you are going to destroy your life or have probably any negative consequences from it, so long as you actually know yourself ahead of time what your limit is, and that you keep your limit to not very much, and that you take very long breaks of like a year plus between reaching your limit, you will probably be fine tbh, however I know people who got severely fucked up on heroin, one dude had part of his arm cut out and almost lost the full thing, one has been trying to quit for ages and even after taking ibogaine twice hasn't been able to even with long tapers on suboxone and methadone and shit, so yeah you can run into serious problems with heroin.
