Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / My tattoos offend people?

They're just my arms but they want me to cover them up on the job. It's flat-out discrimination, but then so are a lot of things. People are strange. I guess I just wasn't made for these times...

Hey Kurt -- are you really ME, just talking to myself???  :question:

Was there anyone who wasn't stripsearched after their intake? I ask because I have no recollection of this happening to me.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / "Dean's Boys"

I have heard tell of this cliqué of Dean Mistretta's favorite ass-lickin' straightlings...anyone else here recall this bunch being referred to as "Dean's boys"? Is that fuckin' gay or what? Wasn't Joe Murden one of Dean's boys? Who else was in this select group of the few, the proud & the brainwashed? Let's hear some more about this group of butt-munchers from someone who knows.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / Exhibitionism and Freedom of Speech
« on: February 03, 2006, 01:38:00 PM »
The exhibitionism can be a bit irritating feel like saying, "Go get a goddam room and stop doing that in front of everyone." or "Why don't you fire up your Yahoo IM and go at it?" Of course I understand that some folks get off on this sort of public display of affection (PDA) & I also believe in the liberty to express one's self so long as it doesn't harm others, etc...

But an important "also" about that is that Freedom of Speech also warrants the right to bitch about whatever it is that bugs you that people may do on here. It's a two-way street. For instance, if your PDA bugs someone they might start "butting in" to the conversation in some way just to shake things up or otherwise disrupt your exhibitionism. You gotta pay to play -- if you go gushing all over a public forum, you can expect trolls to rear their ugly heads. It's just the way it is. If you don't like it, then find someplace else to go do the nasty.

I also think that some ppl take this fucking forum WAAAYYY too there are supposed to be some set of rules about what should and should not be posted here..this place is a free-for-all and I doubt that anything will ever changed that. People can look elsewhere for serious representation of & by survivor folk, or the voice of the veteran, or whatever the fuck you wanna call it.

Open Free for All / Let It Blurt

Scientists have lately sought to map the neural topography of  forbidden speech by studying Tourette's patients who suffer from  coprolalia, the pathological and uncontrollable urge to curse.  Tourette's syndrome is a neurological disorder of unknown origin  characterized predominantly by chronic motor and vocal tics, a  constant grimacing or pushing of one's glasses up the bridge of one's  nose or emitting a stream of small yips or grunts.

Just a small percentage of Tourette's patients have coprolalia -  estimates range from 8 to 30 percent - and patient advocates are  dismayed by popular portrayals of Tourette's as a humorous and  invariably scatological condition. But for those who do have  coprolalia, said Dr. Carlos Singer, director of the division of  movement disorders at the University of Miami School of Medicine, the  symptom is often the most devastating and humiliating aspect of their  condition.

Not only can it be shocking to people to hear a loud volley of  expletives erupt for no apparent reason, sometimes from the mouth of  a child or young teenager, but the curses can also be provocative and  personal, florid slurs against the race, sexual identity or body size  of a passer-by, for example, or deliberate and repeated lewd  references to an old lover's name while in the arms of a current  partner or spouse.

Reporting in The Archives of General Psychiatry, Dr. David A.  Silbersweig, a director of neuropsychiatry and neuroimaging at the  Weill Medical College of Cornell University, and his colleagues  described their use of PET scans to measure cerebral blood flow and  identify which regions of the brain are galvanized in Tourette's  patients during episodes of tics and coprolalia.

They found strong activation of the basal ganglia, a quartet of  neuron clusters deep in the forebrain at roughly the level of the mid- forehead, that are known to help coordinate body movement along with  activation of crucial regions of the left rear forebrain that  participate in comprehending and generating speech, most notably  Broca's area.

The researchers also saw arousal of neural circuits that interact  with the limbic system, the wishbone-shape throne of human emotions,  and, significantly, of the "executive" realms of the brain, where  decisions to act or desist from acting may be carried out: the neural  source, scientists said, of whatever conscience, civility or free  will humans can claim.

That the brain's executive overseer is ablaze in an outburst of  coprolalia, Dr. Silbersweig said, demonstrates how complex an act the  urge to speak the unspeakable may be, and not only in the case of  Tourette's. The person is gripped by a desire to curse, to voice  something wildly inappropriate. Higher-order linguistic circuits are  tapped, to contrive the content of the curse. The brain's impulse  control center struggles to short-circuit the collusion between  limbic system urge and neocortical craft, and it may succeed for a time.

Yet the urge mounts, until at last the speech pathways fire, the  verboten is spoken, and archaic and refined brains alike must shoulder the blame.
