Homosexuality Crippling Female Football!

0 comments

I had to re-read this one in the Gleaner after my birthday of all times but I nearly died with laughter when I saw it. Where is the evidence of this especially owing to the fact that a same gender loving football team was in the works back in my more active years.

It was more indiscipline that was the issue and in fighting and jealousy as well that marred the growth than just sexual orientation.

The Gleaner reported:


Director of football at the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) Vinimore 'Vin' Blaine admitted that homosexual behaviour among females in the sport has turned off others from serious involvement.

Blaine, who is one of the island's most successful female football coaches, said that local players who openly display homosexual behaviour particularly at games and in camp have contributed significantly to the lack of growth and support for local female football.

"It is indeed a fact that has been there for the longest time. The difference is that our girls in Jamaica show it up by their behaviour," Blaine told The Gleaner in a recent interview.

He said that while one cannot dictate the lifestyle of female football players, they must behave professionally, particularly when they are around other players and spectators.

"We can't mandate (how anybody lives their life), but when they come to camp, it should just be about football," said Blaine, who is a former national and club female football coach.

Homosexual Culture

He shared that many parents are preventing their daughters from getting involved in the sport because of the homosexual culture and that many talented females have also stayed away from the sport for the same reason.

"Historically, and more so recently, a lot of parents don't want to allow their children to get involved even in the schoolgirl competition," he disclosed.

Blaine insisted that when he was directly involved in coaching female footballers, he did not condone homosexual behaviour on his teams, whether at the club or national levels.

"I always ask of the players to conform to the rules and regulations laid out," he said. "The lifestyle is more highlighted in the Caribbean than in the United States of America or Canada," he added.

Blaine called on the fans of these players to desist from showing up their homosexual behaviour in public.

"The fans of the players create problems as they behave like men," he said.

He also pointed out that the coaches must be firm when dealing with female football players.

"The coaches at the school and club levels have a responsibility to ensure that the girls are educated about their behaviour in order to ensure that their fans don't behave in a certain way."

Elaine Walker-Brown, JFF's chairman for women's football declined to comment.

ENDS

Sadly this is the fear and foolishness that continues to permeate our country's development and such then there is JFLAG lack of interest in this kind of community development over the years as well.

Well some comic relief is good I guess.

Peace & tolerance

Sexting Basics: What You Need To Know Before You Press Send

0 comments

Given some recent occurrences this post could not have been more opportune

Sexting Basics: What You Need To Know Before You Press Send

Over the past couple of years the candid images of celebrities holding cell phones taking nude photos of themselves have become the norm. Chris Brown, Rihanna, Yung Joc, Yung Berg, Cassie, Eve and Jill Scott are just some of the mounting number of stars who clearly didn't know the rules of sexting.

The act of sexting can enhance your sex life in situations where you are in a long distance relationship where spending quality time with your partner isn't always feasible. But at the same time, it can also destroy your public image if your phone is hacked or if you and your boyfriend breakup and he decides to get revenge by posting your photos on Xtube or by releasing them to every tumblr known to man.

If you’re going to get into this sexting game, you have got to know how to do it right. To avoid sexting altogether can be somewhat lame. With amateur porn becoming more popular now than ever, who doesn't like to receive photos specifically tailored to their likings?

If you absolutely feel the need to send naughty photos, here is a guide on how to do so correctly and protect yourself in the future, if they are ever leaked:

Know Your Audience
You should only send nude photos to someone you know and trust without the shadow of a doubt. This may seem simple but everyday nude photos of someone are uploaded onto the internet. Sometimes it's out of sheer admiration without any harm intended, While in other scenarios, it may be to humiliate the person featured in the photos. Often times in these cases the victim goes unaware of their internet fame and by the time they discover the photos, they have gone viral!

If you can barely trust your future ex, do not send pictures to guy or girl that you barely know. This will prove to be hard, since you can be in a long term relationship with a man or woman for years and still not know him or his motives. However, if you don’t know him or her and you're being pressued to send naughty flicks, or if you are just yearning to showhow good you look when you get out the shower, or maybe you want to show which way your penis hangs, then go on to the next rule…

Face or Body
When someone asks to see a picture of you, always send a photo of your face first. If they want something a little more revealing they will ask, at which time you send them a picture of your body without your face being attached. You never, ever show both face and body in the same picture!

Neither should you take them in the same room. For example, if you send him a photo of your face and the background of the photo shows you in the bathroom, then your nude photo (face not included) should be taken in a different location. This ensures that if both photos were to ever be leaked or published intentionally, viewers will not be able to use the background of those images to link your face and body together.

No I.D.
Tattoos, birthmarks, jewelry, or as previously stated--backgrounds are not permissible. Even if you didn’t put your face in a sext, some people will go to amazing lengths to identify you in a nude photo. Have you ever watched a porn scene where the company hides one of the actors faces with a hood or hat, yet their tattoos are clearly visible? Pointless!

If you can, try to angle your body so that such spcifics as tattoos are not visible. For extreme measures, you may have to use generic sheets to cover up large identifying body marks or even tattoo makeup.

Remeber to be mindful of your backdrop. Be sure that there aren't any photos of your family and friends posted on the walls behind you. Better yet, take the photo in a hallway where the walls are as bare as your body.

Do whatever you must to protect yourself, just make sure to take anything that is specific to you out of the picture.

Be A Five-Star Amateur Porn Star
If you decide to show your face out of free will or under the pressure of someone who wants to see both your face and body in the same photo, look on point. Nobody wants to be all over the internet streets as the next joke or trending disaster.

Make it look like you intended to be on the internet and own your photo. The best way to combat negative publicity is to own it like you did it on purpose. So make sure you are groomed from head to toe and be sure to send the absolute best, porn worthy photo of yourself.

The Bartering System
This system is when you have a guy send you a picture that is equally incriminating as the picture you intend to send. If you send a photo of you with your ass cheeks spread, hole just saying, "Wink-wink, hello," he should send the same type of picture. This way if he ever outs you on the internet, you have the same ammunition to embarrass his ass right back.

If he's a top and sends you a dick pic, even if you are a bottom, reply with a peen photo of your own. If he wants a photo of your ass, he needs to send one of his. A trade for the trade! Tops will most certainly get defensive when you ask for an ass pic so be prepared but don’t let that detour you. It is important to keep it on the same playing field in order to protect yourself. Don’t let him or anyone get an advantage.

Once an image is sent to someone's phone, kik, email or the internet, know that the likelyhood of that photo surfacing on multiple platforms is great. In the age of social media, photos are retweeted, pinned, liked and redistributed all over the web for everyone to see.

It's simple, if you don't want to end up on the internet for forever, than don't send out nude photos of yourself to anyone!

Sure you could contact myself, or another blogger in order to have your content removed, but keep in mind that by the time you've reached out to them--others have already "right-clicked" and "saved".

Be smart and never send anything out, that you wouldn't want your mother, father, siblings, friends, pastor, future employer, or your future self to see.

Transgender friends reveal new identities to families in Jamaica

0 comments
Source BBC

Steffan Zachiyah and Romario Wanliss have just returned from Jamaica, where their families saw them as men for the first time.


The two friends live in Birmingham but travelled to their families' home country to reveal their new identities.
Jamaica is considered by some human rights groups to be one of the most transphobic countries in the world.

Newsbeat and Radio 1 Stories caught up with Steffan and Romario after their trip.




"Since the filming of the documentary, I have a greater sense of what 'family' means.



"There is something wonderful about knowing where I get my characteristics from and knowing that I am the future generation carrying on the name of the family.

"My dad and I have continued to talk and I have become much closer to my other family members, especially my brothers and sisters.


"I'll definitely be going back [to Jamaica] at the end of the year."

Steffan

"Since the documentary I've spoken to my brother Gilla in Jamaica and it almost feels like he's been on my journey all this time.

"He seems to have really accepted me for the man I am.
"I've also had a more in-depth chat with my mum about my transition.

Steffan with his older brother Gilla

"Because she has been very inquisitive about why I've made the decision to transition, for the first time ever, I've been able to open up to her and voice how I feel.

"She says for now she won't be addressing me as her son nor her daughter, but I have faith that we can only move onwards and upwards from here.

"I'm hoping she will soon be able to grasp the concept of why I have decided to transition and still love me for who I am."

ENDS

Well good to see some good visibilty coming to the trans populations IN Jamaica instead of persons outside having to stay away due to discrimination.

Peace & tolerance

After catching midway a radio discussion on the subject of Jamaica being labelled as homophobic I did a quick look at the long held belief in Jamaica by anti gay advocates, sections of media and homophobes that several murders of alleged gay victims are in fact 'crimes of passion' or have jealousy as their motives but it is not as simple or generalized as that.

Aphrodite’s PRIDE JA tackles gender identity, transgender misconceptions .....



Nationwide New Network, NNN devoted some forty five minutes of prime time yesterday evening to discuss the issue and help listeners to at least begin to process some of the information coming from the most public declaration exercise as done by Jenner. Guests on the show were Dr Karen Carpenter Board Certified Clinical Sexologist and Psychologist, ‘Satiba’ from Aphrodite’s P.R.I.D.E Jamaica of which I am affiliated and Lecturer (Sociologist) and host of Every Woman on the station Georgette Crawford Williams (sister of PNP member of parliament Damian Crawford); one of the first questions thrown at Satiba by host Cliff Hughes was why has Jenna waited so long at 65 years old to make such a life changing decision?

Satiba responded that many transwomen have to hide their true identity in life .... given her life when she was younger she was a star athlete she would have been under tremendous precious to stay in from the expectations by the public and her team etc, also owing to the fact that she had a family as a man with children one may not want to upset the flow at that time until the kids are old enough. There is a lot of burden of guilt that some persons carry in weighing the decisions of coming out or transitioning so suppression of one’s true self is the modus operandi.

Dr Carpenter cautioned after a heated exchange:

“We really must remember as professionals we must stay in our lane I will never pronounce as a Sociologist cause I am not a Sociologist ............When we have an opportunity to speak publicly we must be careful of what we say unless it is extremely well informed......”

Dr Shelly Ann Weeks on Homophobia - What are we afraid of?


Former host of Dr Sexy Live on Nationwide radio and Sexologist tackles in a simplistic but to the point style homophobia and asks the poignant question of the age, What really are we as a nation afraid of?


It seems like homosexuality is on everyone's tongue. From articles in the newspapers to countless news stories and commentaries, it seems like everyone is talking about the gays. Since Jamaica identifies as a Christian nation, the obvious thought about homosexuality is that it is wrong but only male homosexuality seems to influence the more passionate responses. It seems we are more open to accepting lesbianism but gay men are greeted with much disapproval.

Dancehall has certainly been very clear where it stands when it comes to this issue with various songs voicing clear condemnation of this lifestyle. Currently, quite a few artistes are facing continuous protests because of their anti-gay lyrics. Even the law makers are involved in the gayness as there have been several calls for the repeal of the buggery law. Recently Parliament announced plans to review the Sexual Offences Act which, I am sure, will no doubt address homosexuality.

Jamaica has been described as a homophobic nation. The question I want to ask is: What are we afraid of? There are usually many reasons why homosexuality is such a pain in the a@. Here are some of the more popular arguments MORE HERE

Promised conscience vote was a fluke from the PNP ........



SO WE WERE DUPED EH? - the suggestion of a conscience vote on the buggery law as espoused by Prime Minister (then opposition leader) in the 2011 leadership debate preceding the last national elections was a dangling carrot for a dumb donkey to follow.

Many advocates and individuals interpreted Mrs Simpson Miller's pronouncements as a promise or a commitment to repeal or at least look at the archaic buggery law but I and a few others who spoke openly dismissed it all from day one as nothing more than hot air especially soon after in February member of parliament Damian Crawford poured cold water on the suggestion/promise and said it was not a priority as that time. and who seems to always open his mouth these days and revealing his thoughts that sometimes go against the administration's path.

I knew from then that as existed before even under the previous PM P. J. Patterson (often thought to be gay by the public) also danced around the issue as this could mean votes and loss of political power. Mrs Simpson Miller in the meantime was awarded a political consultants' democracy medal as their conference concludes in Antigua.

War of words between pro & anti gay activists on HIV matters .......... what hypocrisy is this?

A war of words has ensued between gay lawyer (AIDSFREEWORLD) Maurice Tomlinson and anti gay activist Dr Wayne West (supposed in-laws of sorts) as both accuse each other of lying or being dishonest, when deception has been neatly employed every now and again by all concerned, here is the post from Dr West's blog

This is laughable to me in a sense as both gentleman have broken the ethical lines of advocacy respectively repeatedly especially on HIV/AIDS and on legal matters concerning LGBTQ issues

The evidence is overwhelming readers/listeners, you decide.


Fast forward 2015 and the exchanges continue in a post from Dr Wayne West: Maurice Tomlinson misrepresents my position on his face book page and Blog 76Crimes

Tomlinson's post originally was:

Calls for Tourism Boycotts are Nonsensical at This Time





(2014 protests New York)

Calling for boycotts by overseas based Jamaican advocates who for the most part are not in touch with our present realities in a real way and do not understand the implications of such calls can only seek to make matters worse than assisting in the struggle, we must learn from, the present economic climate of austerity & tense calm makes it even more sensible that persons be cautious, will these groups assist when there is fallout?, previous experiences from such calls made in 2008 and 2009 and the near diplomatic nightmare that missed us; especially owing to the fact that many of the victims used in the public advocacy of violence were not actual homophobic cases which just makes the ethics of advocacy far less credible than it ought to be.

What to do if you are attacked (News You Can Use)


First, be calm: Do not panic; it may be very difficult to maintain composure if attacked but this is important.

Try to reason with the attacker: Establish communication with the person. This takes a lot of courage. However, a conversation may change the intention of an attacker.

Do not try anything foolish: If you know outmaneuvering the attacker is impossible, do not try it.

Do not appear to be afraid: Look the attacker in the eye and demonstrate that you are not fearful.

This may have a psychological effect on the individual.

Emergency numbers

The police 119

Kingfish 811

Crime Stop 311

Steps to Take When Contronted or Arrested by Police


a) Ask to see a lawyer or Duty Council

b) Only give name and address and no other information until a lawyer is present to assist

c) Try to be polite even if the scenario is tensed) Don’t do anything to aggravate the situation

e) Every complaint lodged at a police station should be filed and a receipt produced, this is not a legal requirement but an administrative one for the police to track reports

f) Never sign to a statement other than the one produced by you in the presence of the officer(s)

g) Try to capture a recording of the exchange or incident or call someone so they can hear what occurs, place on speed dial important numbers or text someone as soon as possible

h) File a civil suit if you feel your rights have been violated. When making a statement to the police have all or most of the facts and details together for e.g. "a car" vs. "the car" represents two different descriptions

j) Avoid having the police writing the statement on your behalf except incases of injuries, make sure what you want to say is recorded carefully, ask for a copy if it means that you have to return for it

What to do


a. Make a phone call: to a lawyer or relative or anyone

b. Ask to see a lawyer immediately: if you don’t have the money ask for a Duty Council

c. A Duty Council is a lawyer provided by the state

d. Talk to a lawyer before you talk to the police

e. Tell your lawyer if anyone hits you and identify who did so by name and number

f. Give no explanations excuses or stories: you can make your defense later in court based on what you and your lawyer decided

g. Ask the sub officer in charge of the station to grant bail once you are charged with an offence

h. Ask to be taken before a justice of The Peace immediately if the sub officer refuses you bail

i. Demand to be brought before a Resident Magistrate and have your lawyer ask the judge for bail

j. Ask that any property taken from you be listed and sealed in your presence

Cases of Assault:An assault is an apprehension that someone is about to hit you

The following may apply:

1) Call 119 or go to the station or the police arrives depending on the severity of the injuries

2) The report must be about the incident as it happened, once the report is admitted as evidence it becomes the basis for the trial

3) Critical evidence must be gathered as to the injuries received which may include a Doctor’s report of the injuries.

4) The description must be clearly stated; describing injuries directly and identifying them clearly, show the doctor the injuries clearly upon the visit it must be able to stand up under cross examination in court.

5) Misguided evidence threatens the credibility of the witness during a trial; avoid the questioning of the witnesses credibility, the tribunal of fact must be able to rely on the witness’s word in presenting evidence

6) The court is guided by credible evidence on which it will make it’s finding of facts

7) Bolster the credibility of a case by a report from an independent disinterested party.

VACANT AT LAST! SHOEMAKERGULLY: DISPLACED MSM/TRANS PERSONS WERE IS CLEARED DECEMBER 2014





CVM TV carried a raid and subsequent temporary blockade exercise of the Shoemaker Gully in the New Kingston district as the authorities respond to the bad eggs in the group of homeless/displaced or idling MSM/Trans persons who loiter there for years.

Question is what will happen to the population now as they struggle for a roof over their heads and food etc. The Superintendent who proposed a shelter idea (that seemingly has been ignored by JFLAG et al) was the one who led the raid/eviction.
