How Porn Harms You and Yours – 12 Points

Introduction:

Following are only my personal opinions, dealing only with porn targeting adult heterosexual sex because I have no personal knowledge of “LGBT” experiences, although surely there is some common ground. And child pornography and sexual abuse is a whole other, even darker, albeit related issue.

This also only refers to porn of the sexual “freak show” variety as opposed to simple nudity or far more tasteful erotic material which embarrasses no one, although the physical perfection of others can foster envy in those not so fortunate. And envy is the root of all hate, so there’s that problem.

But think of the difference this way: Who would be ashamed to have others find nude pictures of them from the past, the nude model for “artistic” pleasures, or the smutty spread-eagled model who’ll apparently do just about anything with any random person? I think the difference between respectful, friendly erotic material and destructive pornography is pretty clear.

1) What porn is presented as:

Adult fun times (even when pre-teen-looking schoolgirls are used). Whoopee! Porn’s a real hoot, nothing to be judgy about, don’t be a cock blocker! It’s an arousal tool, as ancient and natural as anything, so what’s all the fuss? It’s just us guys wanting to “bang” the hot chicks. (Um, explain “granny porn” then, etc. Right, never mind.)

2) What porn is:

A way for unprincipled people to make tons of money by selling explicit, deviant sexual material to a vast number of people, largely men, to feed, and further whet, the addictive hunger brought on by incessant biological urges. Addicted men often spend themselves into the poorhouse (or into homelessness and/or prison) buying porn material and patronizing strippers and prostitutes. Our prisons are filled with porn addicts, who where that way well before incarceration.

Porn is not friendly or loving, it far more emphasizes the mean, seedy side of sex…the side no one wants for their children to be involved in as they grow up. But the side so many people enjoy the use of other people’s grown (or adolescent) children in.

3) Unreality – The freak-show aspect:

People in porn are depicted as sex freaks who’ll do anything with just about anyone, the more bizarre the better. Giant rock-hard penises that never fail are the rule of the day, and women look at them in amazement or fear and a naughty sort of reverence…they simply must have them, in every way, and pain be damned. Women, especially, are shown enjoying things that are actually repulsive, frightening, degrading, painful, and/or endangering to them in real life. And more and more, women (and even men) in real life are expected to do and enjoy whatever is popular in porn, no matter how bizarre or repugnant.

Why the shady freak-show aspect? Ask the pornographers, they’ll tell you: Shock sells. It’s all about sales. Getting a substantial chunk of your needed money into their fat bank accounts.

4) The Backstory – Why the anger regarding sex?

People are biologically programmed to need sex during their reproductive years and even beyond. But they don’t like it, really, as it makes them foolish and “freaky” and they don’t understand this “need” to be that way. Thus, intercourse is used commonly as a vile insult: f*** you, f***face, f***ing this and that, the middle finger raised as a phallic symbol of rage and degradation, female genitalia or the “c” word being a most vile insult, etc.

People don’t actually like behaving the way sex causes them to behave, considering it a schizophrenic other personality that comes out when aroused. “Get your freak on” is a common phrase used to describe sexual activity.

Sex feels so good though, orgasm is pure ecstasy, greatest experience on Earth, when in that frame of mind anyway, so people crave it often, regularly, especially when looking at enticing people, naked or not. So people are torn between their two sides: the moaning, enraptured, writhing nasty sex freak…the embarrassment, versus the side they respect: the wholesome, decent, modest, studious, child-presentable person who’s certainly no naked and splayed-out-for-all-to-see butt-in-the-air embarrassment to anyone.

Interestingly, the “walk of shame” is said to be done by single women, after nights of debauchery when sneaking back home to clean up, get some sleep, and get presentable again. While married women don’t generally do the shame walk because they’re already home, mostly (those not out cheating anyhow).

So most people need sex, but they also resent it, and each other for the temptations. Why do you have to go and stir up these urges in me, I hate myself, I hate you, yet we call it making love. It’s a total mind f***. Thus, the anger with sex.

But when two people really do love each other (the forever kind) and are loyal, that sexual anger is lesser or non-existent, and sex can be a friendly and loving activity. Hopefully that’s the vast majority in real life. But that doesn’t sell like the freaky, mean stuff does. So you’ll rarely if ever see loving couples in big-selling porn. Porn capitalizes on the sordid side, the nasty, angry acts between those depicted pretty much as strangers.

5) Objectification – Seeing human beings as things and dirty jokes:

People become “it” rather than human beings with emotions or any value outside of “doability.”

Say you’re a man who respects and loves your daughter dearly, yet some strange man on the street hoots and hollers obscenities and graphic descriptions of what he’d do to her if he got the chance, and with that hateful gleam in his beady eyes. Would you like it? Or would you want to knock him out? Or more than want to?

Porn turns people like your own mother/sister/daughter/etc. (or the male counterparts) into nothing more than objects and dirty joke material, in the minds of crass, hateful people. Of which there are more than people like to acknowledge. The endless array of graphic, freaky sexual material only feeds into that crassness and hatred, and multiplies it. To put it mildly, this is not good for humanity.

6) More on Anger – The frustration:

There’s the (mostly male) fantasy of being able to “bang” any and every female he finds “doable,” right then and there, and leave her dazed, crumpled, but satiated, in some seedy restroom or other vile place, never to see her again; that is, unless her impressive beauty merits further contact. Maybe this one’s a keeper? Even marriage material? But no, you’re not quite her type in real life, so she’s just a nasty slut like all the rest.

For most men, that hot dream girl is never a reality. He can, however, rent a woman who’ll do most anything with anyone, for a price. Or he can go for an “ugly” woman who’ll try to make up for her unattractiveness by her willingness to go along and loudly enjoy any and every bizarre practice. Maybe he can settle for that.

All these ugly games. For a simple orgasm. For the need to love and be loved. The frustration and resulting anger at the other sex intensifies, and we get the man-hating brand of “feminism” and its counteraction: “men’s rights activism.” Everyone obsessed with how the “other” spoiled innocence and life for them. It’s all a nasty, vicious and complicated cycle. Only with humans could sex become so indescribably weird and hate-filled.

Why is that? one might ask. Well, back to the animal slaughterhouse and all the rest of our violent psychopathy and denials of such. People are largely damaged egotists living lies.

7) Perversion – The addiction and being jaded:

What’s shocking sells, then the shock dies down and more and different shocks are needed. Someone “just like one’s mom/sister/daughter” is shown enjoying degrading, dangerous activities simply for the sake of a showy orgasm for public viewing, which should instead be a private thing between two people, without all that risky behavior. WTF? the viewer thinks, is this what girls/women are really like? My MOM did these sorts of things to create me? Well, no, it’s not likely she did; it’s likely she simply made love with your father and that neither of them required outlandish, insane acts or complete degradation to achieve orgasms. But porn’s another story.

In porn, the old shocks become commonplace and “everyone’s already doing them,” so the common becomes boring and new shocks must always be invented and depicted, keeping that addiction strong. Gotta sell that material after all! Same as the effects of recreational drugs wearing off and more and more being needed to get the same high, until the overdose finally kills you. Well, there’s a sort of soul death among the porn addicted.

Porn can depict hordes of mean old men raping some captive terrified schoolgirl who ends up enjoying it all; “dignified” women are shown looking totally degraded with faces full of dribbling semen, and so forth, on and on it goes. The porn addict needs ever new material, and that appetite is insatiable. He loves to get other men hooked as well…brothers in the big mind f***. And there are ever more women damaged or desperate enough to do “anything” for the “easy” money in the business.

8) Young Minds – How porn influences them:

I won’t delve into this too much because, frankly, it’s too deep and disturbing. It’s quite the visceral topic that defies the intellect. Porn influences children the same way any meaningful first experiences influence young minds, and sexual experience is a most potent form of this. Think of everything porn depicts and then think of the effect it has on young, impressionable minds and emotions. It is often terrifying. It can compel young kids to act out sexually towards inappropriate others when they’re in no way ready for it. Child molesters use porn in that way, to sexualize kids who are way too young and to take advantage and use them. This all feeds into the confusion and anger surrounding sex and into the sickness in our civilization.

9) Rape – How porn often leads to it:

Those really hot girls in the videos all do it, they’re easily controlled by men and they love it all, are game for anything…and they squeal with delight. Why not you, you’re not so hot; and what, I’m not good enough for YOU? I’LL SHOW YOU, BITCH!

Further, see all of the above.

10) Murder – How porn often leads to it:

Research “sexual sadists and murder.” And note that 100% of sexual sadists grew up abusing/killing helpless innocent animals. Linked here is a good, thorough article, but be warned – dark and disturbing content, not for children: http://theviolenceofpornography.blogspot.in/2016/05/violent-pornography-normalises-and.html Further, see all of the above.

11) The Addiction – How to get it out of your life:

If you have the will, just do it, kick the habit, cold turkey, in whatever manner keeps the destructive stuff out of your life and no longer desired. Respect yourself and other good people. If you don’t have the will, there’s nothing I can say to that…and you will continue to hate and ridicule people like me for wanting to spoil your good times. Okay, I already know what you think of me. The question is: What do you think of yourself, and the “anything goes” pornographers and the people they use, including yourself? Honestly.

12) The Danger – How to deal with porn’s influence in society:

I wish I had something besides the following to write here, but I just don’t. First, simply love and respect life. Second, I try to be respectable and kind and stay out of harm’s way and keep those I love out of harm’s way. Any other positive suggestions from readers as to how to deal with this  would be appreciated.

The Meaning of Life – Making Sense of Our Cosmic Insane Asylum

We need a new religion…

St. Peter - "Any animal which is slaughtered is defiled, and its meat defiles."

St. Peter – “Any animal which is slaughtered is defiled and its meat defiles.”

If souls are eternal, and I believe that’s so, God is all of us, every sentient life ever born to die on this planet, for all time. These unfathomable numbers of births and deaths must be endured by God to cleanse itself, to filter out the bad from the good and eventually to be pure bliss without the pain and misery of the disease called evil. As far as what “God” is, exactly, I don’t know…we’re all in the dark about that. As an infinitesimal part of said God while here as individuals, we’re all far too cut off to see the whole, out there, somewhere. Or everywhere. Where “there” is no place we can understand.

A huge part of the cleansing process would be to purify the marginal, as in good Germans or those who are conscious of the sources of their meat, and who only support necessary cruelty, or who remain ignorant and know not what they do. Those who enable evil but are basically good themselves, often amazingly good in other ways. The marginal must be made purely good somehow, to be welcome back to the self-perfecting “creator.” That would be what we think of as heaven. While pure evil, when it is at last firmly identified, is sent off to its own reward with only itself to prey upon. As in “reap what you sow.” The obvious goal is for goodness to be in real peace at last. Rest In Peace. God is to become pure goodness, pure love, joy, all things wonderful. But the process itself is terribly messy…hellish. Here we all are, in it.

The religion mankind instead teaches itself…

The angry, egotistical, vengeful, blood-lusting, cruel god of the bibles would be a manmade charlatan, in this way of looking at it all. A demiurge, as in the Gnostic Christian view. The demiurge is defined as a being subordinate to the Supreme Being (the pure goodness in all life and the universe). This “false god” is considered to be the controller of the material world and antagonistic to all that is purely spiritual. The purpose of that, I guess, would be to keep us all in the dark, to keep our trials a total mystery to us and make them as difficult as possible. For many of us to act as mindless faithfuls, believing and attempting to live according to bible texts which rational minds see as madness.

Another purpose for said false god would be to prevent this purging and purification of the true Supreme Being, because this false god is evil itself (as in “devil”) and doesn’t want to be banished. That makes what’s behind the sadistic, brutal teachings of those bibles a lot clearer, to me anyways.

Earth as Purgatory…

In my estimation, the real God’s purging process is what we are all part of here. As in purgatory, where souls are being tested and sorted out, and where others are atoning for their sins before going to heaven. Purgatory, a state of mental anguish or suffering. Where those born as humans, possessing moral knowledge and judgment, are tested to the fullest extent by our treatment of supposedly “inferior” others, whether animal or human, but most significantly, animals.

I believe our suffering as humans also goes into account as far as our eternal fates, which would only be fair. And I believe those humans who die before they can learn and prove themselves get more chances as humans. One thing would be certain: Nothing but proven goodness would be going back “home.”

Hindu Elephant God

Hindu Elephant God

All animals everywhere would be housing God/human souls atoning for their sins before going to heaven. As in the person who regretfully supported animal abuse and killing who must endure life as a totally innocent pig or cow in a meat farm to be made to understand and become pure before being welcome back home, where evil is no longer tolerated or suffered. Some humans would require many lifetimes here as others…anyone from squirrels to cows to creatures like fleas (parasitic people?) who can be justifiably killed for being a health hazard, or whoever…before being welcome back.

Our past life(lives) seem to be obliterated from our minds while we’re here, for reasons unknown, but perhaps because the influences of the past might keep us from further learning and thus prevent our being purified, requiring more physical lives to sort us out.

The non-human (innocent and unknowing animal) existence must teach the soul a lesson that cannot be learned when one possesses human moral knowledge and judgment. Since when the individual had that great opportunity, that knowledge, he/she failed, but not to a hopeless extent. These marginal, benign but evil-enabling souls wouldn’t learn as fully functioning humans, so they have to learn as “other” (whether animals or desperately disadvantaged people, likely victims of unjust violence and undeserved deaths). Those souls clearly deemed hopelessly evil would go straight from being human to being forever banished to exist with only their kind, i.e., hell.

The Buddhists are right or mostly so?

phra_ajan_jerapunyo-abbot_of_watkungtaphaoI used to believe this was a fruitless, even counterproductive process because the evil required to “punish” those now innocent animals would be never-ending. So reincarnation seemed sadistic and pointless to me. But being born as animal is not actually punishment, it’s purification. Their having good lives knowing the love and care of good people teaches them just as much as their being in pain and fear from birth to death at the hands of the sadistic and/or foolish. Either way, they learn empathy from the viewpoint of the most vulnerable. They understand why evil must be identified and cast out forever.

The choices involved for humans regarding animals and the resulting actions we take are vital to judging us and sorting us out. So it must be done. As random as it all seems…and is…there is a method to the madness. Nature’s violence and predation are of course involved in the process as much as anything else…those animals, too, are God/human souls being purified.

In this purgatory, the incentive to put an end to people’s exploitation/abuse/killing of animals is as strong as ever, since that also serves to put and end to the evil, not to perpetuate it. This is the very good reason why animal advocates are more and more compelled speak up, to “preach” to everyone, as hated as we are for it. Those who know better, do better, and otherwise hopeless souls get “saved” in the bargain. Best of all, this world becomes far more beautiful, less violent, less frightening…far less hellish. No one loses from that. And soon this place of predators and prey, kill to eat, survival of the fittest, food chains, etc. …this place full of chaos, bloodshed and anguish…ceases to be necessary any longer. Everything will be sorted out and everything will be in perfection, forevermore.

pig_lactationDo I think my being vegan makes me close to perfect, heaven bound?

I don’t know. I don’t claim to know how the decisions are made about who gets to go where and when, but I’m more and more trusting that the system makes perfect sense and that justice prevails in the end, that everything works out for the best, despite what a miserable hell this world is for so many innocent ones, as well as for those of us who empathize and suffer continually for the most persecuted and suffering of others.

I of course don’t know for certain where I’ll go after this life, but certainly hope it’s heaven (who wouldn’t?), or if I’m not pure & good enough yet, to a human life here again but in an enlightened, healthy, secure family that is already reliably vegan for ethical reasons, so that I can more effectively help to get this extensive and excruciating process to completion. Or maybe I need to live an animal existence to perfect my soul…and I would certainly hope to be a companion animal for someone like myself or better, and never victimized by evil. Another (selfish) reason to fight for animal rights and human kindness everywhere.

Most importantly, I believe the animals and other innocent victims of evil here are in bliss, safe forever at the end of their “processing.” Back home. But a far, far better home. A perfect home.

A personal memory and hard-learned lesson…

chasing_ghosts_at_cha%cc%82teau_de_vianden_3940080719My grandma’s spirit somehow communicated all of this to me in brief seconds the night after she died in our home, although I was typically slow in catching on, all caught up in teen angst and a custom brand of misery. She was my first close family death and it was beyond sad, it was life-changing. On that strange night and afterward, she spiritually got through to me that animals are far more important than people realized and that everything will be made perfect in the end. She came to me as I lay in bed (scared the living daylights out of me) to get this message through, probably because she was soon to be reborn as an animal to be purified. After that brief appearance as a ghost in late 1973 and then for awhile as a part of my mind, grandma was then not heard from again, even though I needed much more guidance.

Guide yourself, young doofus, it all seemed to say.

I first went vegetarian for awhile in the year following grandma’s ethereal message, but it didn’t last and I was still somewhat of a malignant asshole for many years, interspersed with being the opposite (and vegetarian off & on), as if to compensate. But that important seed was firmly planted, and here I am, a far better person than ever possible before that. So, I’m one of these many obsessed vegans and animal liberation blatherers of today. But it is vital. Thank you, grandma, for that salvation.

So in conclusion…

516396125_1280x720The real God is good. Goodness is its own reward. Evil requires retribution as in banishment. Reap what you sow. Have faith and be kind and fight for it. Live by the Golden Rule. Clichés, yes, but meaningful and true. Earn your way back to our newly perfect…Home. Best of all, to be with all of your loved ones once again…perfectly devoid of evil, suffering and death.

The Anti-Vegan Activist’s Favorite Tool – Gaslighting

crushed_thumbGaslighting is a psychological ploy used by sociopaths, narcissists and other toxic types to bully and control others by convincing them their ideas are senseless, their emotions invalid…in essence that the target is simply unacceptable as is and needs to conform to the dictates of the toxic bully in order to be accepted by the “superior.” Either that, or the target deserves silencing, confinement, elimination, etc., meaning to be securely “under the thumb” of the toxic bully to his/her benefit…or out of the bully’s way, as in locked up or dead.

Gaslighting’s purpose is to turn someone into a psychological puddle of jelly, to the benefit of those directing the game.

fool-140229_960_720We see those “vegans” who’ve submitted to the sociopaths in increasing numbers as of late, in the likes of tone-policing activists far more outraged at “unacceptable” behavior by other vegans (preachiness, being moralistic, whatever) than they are over animal suffering and slaughter. Actually, these “vegans” are most often not in the least bit concerned with people’s treatment of animals and are only “plant based” for health or other such acceptable reasons. They see their tolerant, “loving” selves as the plant-based darlings of society. While ethical vegans see them as the malicious pawns they are. They are the well-used enablers of anti-vegan gaslighters.

In “Gaslight,” the 1944 mystery-thriller film, a woman’s husband slowly manipulates her into believing she’s insane by playing tricks on her and terrorizing her in their home with lights dimming/brightening, mysterious gaslight_1944_trailer3footsteps and so forth. She’s constantly told these are only in her imagination, no one else sees/hears them. He also convinces her she’s a kleptomaniac by having valuables disappear with her as the only suspect. The aim is to have her flip out and be put into an asylum, or perhaps drive her to suicide. This is all for this sociopath’s great financial benefit in the end, he thinks. That’s all I’ll say here, to avoid spoiling the film for anyone who hasn’t seen it.

Now, how do anti-vegan activists (AVAs) use gaslighting techniques? Let us count the ways:

Vegan is depressed and angry regarding animal farms, slaughterhouses and all the rest of the deplorable subhuman mess and expresses him/herself about it obsessively, passionately…even, God forbid…judgmentally. (Would anyone accuse a child advocate of being “obsessive” or “judgmental” against child abusers? I think not. Isn’t speciesism just wonderful?) Well anyhow, in response to animal activists/vegans “acting up”…

AVA breaks branches, chest pounds, paws the earth, and hisses at heartbroken person:

  1. You are only depressed and angry because of your deficient diet, not because of anything we’re doing!
  2. You sicko…you anthropomorphize dumb animals, you think they feel pain and have needs like we do. Ha ha, you idiot!
  3. You’re a judgmental, self-righteous, sanctimonious, preachy POS, and everyone hates you!
  4. Your over-the-top love for animals is a sickness! It’s only because you don’t have the people skills it takes to have a proper social life.
  5.  You think a lion wouldn’t eat you because you’re an animal-rights wing nut?

    alex-and-his-lion-friend-by-tambako-the-jaguar-on-flickr

    Alex and his lion friend by Tambako the Jaguar on Flickr

  6. Only emotionally immature idiots oppose our using and killing animals!
  7. You favor animals over people, since people cannot survive without using/killing animals. You anti-human scum!
  8. No one else feels as you do, the rest of us are strong and mature and content with the natural order of things.
  9. No one cares about your vegan cult or what you have to say!
  10. You are a bully, crazily trying to force everyone to adopt your awful diet, therefore you’re a horrible person!
  11. If you don’t like our world as we’ve made it, why don’t you just kill yourself? Loser!loser_sign
  12. Nothing is wrong with society and our norms, it’s you fringe nuts that are deplorable, not us!
  13. No one but you few fringe nuts is vegan, and there have never been any vegans of any benefit to humanity or the planet, and there never will be.
  14. All of your protesting, whining and crap is for nothing…no one will ever listen to you. Your life’s “passion” is just so much wasted trash! Go away!
  15. How crazy are you anyways…will you go out to the African plains and tell lions they must be vegan?
  16. We understand nature and the food chain and proudly sit on top of it all, while you’re just a bleeding heart moron…why don’t you just die?
  17. Why can’t you be like these good vegans who accept and love everyone’s food choices and who are thus, cool? Not insane and hated like you!
  18. 99.9% of people are against you…that should tell you just how wrong you are! (This one despite the fact that it’s more like about 50% oppose us now and about 10% are with us as vegans or nearly so, up from less than 1% in the 1980s. But yet, according to the gaslighters, vegans are still less than 1% of people. Our denied growth explains why the backlash of late has become so much more common, loud and vicious.)

There are more varieties to be sure, but those are some of the more common I’ve seen out there on the web, where vicious cranks feel free to anonymously man-70442_960_720hiss and bellow out their toxicity, unfettered. Ah, the joyous pleasantries of being gaslighted by society’s henchmen and women, aren’t they lovely? Just one of the many fringe benefits of being “smug self-righteous privileged SJWs.”

Some anti-vegan thugs behave this way in person, in public, bolstered by their fellows’ behavior on the internet. I say, either put them down scathingly, cleverly and thoroughly, even if with a touch of humor and a pitying hug; or look at them quizzically and cringe/smile at their nutty rudeness; or get away from them and avoid them from there on out; or simply glaze over and ignore, meaning go “autistic” and construct a “wall” against them. The last three are what I’m best at. I’m not so good with mean, clever insult diatribes.

In the case of anti-veganism, gaslighting techniques are well used to bury inconvenient truths, and keep them buried. This serves to hold veganism back from spreading as widely and quickly as it should, since whether the vegan succumbs to it or not, “normal” people see something undesirable happening and want no part of it…not on the vegan’s side anyways. They’d rather covertly/silently side with the bully and simply continue to enjoy their burgers, steaks, cheese and such, while “pitying” (disliking or hating) vegans for being such oddballs and targets of abuse, not to mention the “terrible deprived diet that makes them crazy.” That’s normal folks’ human intelligence and compassion at work right there…impressive, isn’t it?

How do I suggest we deal with gaslighting?

Deal with it (or not) in any way you see fit after understanding what’s happening and operating from inner strength and a firm resolution not to be bullied by nasty people. It’s not for your benefit, after all, to rise above such attacks and “win”…it’s for the innocents, the animals. This is a war of words and ideas, and our winning in the end will get us the huge backing of the mainstream…to phase out and shut down the slaughterhouses and the rest of the vileness. So don’t let these malevolent people get the better of you. To start with, you don’t need to engage with them at all. Clever dismissals serve well to stop them in their tracks and free you from the miserable waste of time in “debating” with them for days on end. But sometimes engaging and winning is quite necessary and needs to be done well. The destructive misinformation AVAs spread should be challenged effectively and defeated whenever possible.

Compassion is Not a Crime – Anita Krajnc, Toronto Pig Save

If AVAs do on occasion “win” by being relentless in the malicious, vulgar behavior, to compensate, do some more creative and constructive work to help the cause of veganism, i.e., be proactive instead of reactive. Get the message out to decent people rather than fight some more with the venomous. Be immune to the psychological games used by these people. Remember: It’s not for your own sake, it’s for the animals and the future growth of veganism, for the eventual end of this animal ag & slaughter-based, thus insane “civilization.”

YOU direct things, don’t allow yourself to be that pawn in the gaslighter’s sick power game. Such people have no right to even attempt to squash your good will and invalidate your passions, and they need to be seen as the malicious ruiners they so want to be. These narcissists and similar types are sick people behaving as domineering mouthpieces for a sick society. So take control of situations, don’t let them make you sick. And be proud, not ashamed of being considered crazy by such a society.

Jiddu Krishnamurti said, “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

And this, along with much else, is deeply, disturbingly, sick and evil human behavior:
