Facts According to Jay Part 5

Tuesday, August 29, 2006

Jay Baskins, see HERE, tells us about this little thing called A FACTOID, which he defines as:

A statement of presumed fact that people believe to be true because they hear it repeated over and over


The "pedophile" is a brutish, primitive, self-centered person who is incapable of empathy.

Jay states that the ACTUAL fact is:
Who have been some well known pedophiles? Here are a few: Thomas Mann, James Barrie, Lew Carroll, Alan Ginsberg, Walt Whitman, T.E. White, W. H. Auden, and last but not least Shakespeare. Most people who know anything about these people would not see them as brutish and primitive.

Well now, let's just break that down. First, Jay presents us with what he calls a factoid.....a statement presumed as fact because people hear it repeated....repeatedly.
Then for the actual fact he gives us a......factoid.
Statement repeatedly repeated without substantiation. Walt Whitman being one of the most obvious. Yeah we've all heard that said about him...repeatedly. What's not commonly known is that it's never been proven. Someone says it, and everyone just assumes it's so.

And even if it were so, that doesn't disprove his listed factoid. I personally don't believe all pedofreaks are brutish men. I think of them as sneaking, conniving, manipulative individuals, who GROOM children as their modus operandi. Accusing your detractors of believing something about you which they don't believe is just another example of your less than honest methods.

And Shakespeare? Oh Puhlease. Why do you say these things? Does it validate your feelings somehow? Whoever first said it, knows its not true, and even if it were, it can't be proven, and so they say it believing it will somehow elevate their status. It doesn't work. You read interpretive literature and try to determine from the Bard's writing that he was a pedophile. My dear little perverts...... he was writing about his illegitimate son from whom he was estranged.
