Such restrictions on the participation of the entire team in the Olympic Games cannot disguise the growing Russophobia. We have no doubt that such blatant acts of injustice aim at the denigration and humiliation of Russia through the slandering of her outstanding athletes.</p> <p><strong>It is our moral duty to our historical homeland to make public our disagreement with this policy of hatred, enmity, and injustice by international sports committees.

This is direct and senseless discrimination on a national basis, which we, the citizens of democratic countries, cannot and should not accept as the norm.</p> <p>On 28 Aug 2016, the United Russian Community of Canada will hold a mass protest in several cities of Canada against the decision of the International Paralympic Committee.

I will notice that there is no stopping me from lying about my age to access it. It also presents no educational advertizing pertaining to sex education or STI education on that page. Granted if I'm a sex addict, I might know about that already yet it's still not stopping me, but a gentle reminder might help some in the mild stages of sex addiction.</p> <p>There is also no educational advertizing of what sex addiction is (which, ironically enough, can also manifest itself in the form of compulsive sexual avoidance, not to be confused with abstinence by simple choice) or any theories on how it is developed. After all, wearing a condom cannot protect against sex addiction.</p> <p>Nor is there any advertizing of crisis help lines nor therapeutic services either, whether sex therapy or any other related psychological services (especially considering that the anecdotal evidence compiled so far has concluded that a high percentage of sex addicts have suffered physical, sexual, or especially emotional abuse as children and it is believed that many of them also suffer varying degrees of depression, PTSD, OCD, or bipolar disorder). I might be a sex addict who is aware that there is a problem but am unaware of the existence of such services or such research.</p> <p>There is no advertizing of 12-step programmes, whether SAA, SA or any other such programme the existence of which a sex addict might be unaware.</p> <p>There is also no advertizing of chastity devices or educational websites pertaining to them and how some sex addicts have used them effectively in the initial stages of their recovery, nor is there any other advertizing.</p> <p>Also, contrary to popular belief and unlike imprisonment, fines for the purchase of sexual services is actually not a punishment but can rather be helpful to a sex addict in the same way as cigarette taxes and alcohol taxes can be beneficial to smokers and alcoholics respectively by serving as a gentle discouragement.</p> <p>It actually surprises me that Canada does not include the regulation of the online advertizing of sexual services as a requirment among state parties as a standard policy in all new free trade negotiations.</p> <p>Though I can appreciate that compulsory educational advertizing concerning the mental health risks of ?unhealthy sexual relations and remedies towards learning to control the sex addiction that can develop from such relations could hurt the sex industry by potentially removing sex addicts from the client pool and so reduce the demand side of the industry, is the solution really to allow the advertizing of such services to remain as unregulated as it is so as to promote further demand for the sake of profit?</p> <p>Should the advertizing of sexual services be better regulated to ensure that it provide educational advertizing at least equal in quality to that found on cigarette packages? Any thoughts on this?</p> </p></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-taxonomy-forums field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Forums:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/forum/219">disability issues</a></div></div></div> Sat, 21 Feb 2015 19:41:42 +0000 Struggling 116308 at/15a /15a/babble/disability-issues/how-to-balance-sex-addict-and-sex-worker-rights#comments Stanford University may have a cure for Alzheimer's disease https://www.google.com//15a/babble/disability-issues/stanford-university-may-have-cure-alzheimers-disease <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p><p>*</p> </p></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-taxonomy-forums field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Forums:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/forum/219">disability issues</a></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-taxonomy-vocabulary-22 field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Issues Pages:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/issues/good-news">Good News</a></div></div></div> Wed, 07 Jan 2015 23:22:42 +0000 mark_alfred 115383 at/15a /15a/babble/disability-issues/stanford-university-may-have-cure-alzheimers-disease#comments Coping strategies for depression and 'sex addiction'? https://www.google.com//15a/babble/disability-issues/coping-strategies-depression-and-sex-addiction-0 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p><p>I was wondering if anyone here has had to deal with either depression, a desire for self harm, or sex addiction (which in my case seem to be quite interrelated, feeding on one another in a vicious cycle), and what coping strategies you have used to cope with either?

ODSP is reviewing ongoing medical eligibility just like the UK, USA </p> <p>1)The Social Assistance Review Commission's report recommended that ODSP review the ongoing entitlement to benefits of current recipients who have review dates. Most recipients have review dates.</p> <p>2)The Commission estimated that at the time of the report there were over 30,000 outstanding reviews and that the Province could save many $millions if recipients whose health had improved were cut off benefits.</p> <p>3) It has started and the method by which the reviews are happening will itself result in many thousands of very disabled people being cut off benefits.</p> <p>4) The process is that the local ODSP office is sending new forms to each recipient. These forms are almost identical to the original DDPs. The recipient is expected to take these forms to doctors. Then the forms are sent to the DAU (ODSP medical decision makers).</p> <p>5) If the recipient does not send the forms back they will be cut off benefits.</p> <p>6) If the doctor filling in the forms does not provide enough information to prove the case the person is cut </p> <p>7) I think that most of my clients will not be able to complete this process. They will be cut off because they do not send in the forms.</p> <p>8) Further I anticipate that many psychiatric survivors and HIV survivors who have stabilized will be deemed able. This will probably include most of the people in the Ambassador program and those recipients who are able to work part time.</p> <p>9) I believe that at a minimum the process of reapplication may be legally challengeable as it it bureaucratic disentitlement. I also believe that it is important to both warn and assist current ODSP recipients who are now and who will be forced to respond to this awful neoliberal attack.</p> <p>10) Please contact me if anyone wants to work on this issue.</p> </p></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-taxonomy-forums field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Forums:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/forum/219">disability issues</a></div></div></div> Wed, 25 Jun 2014 18:23:20 +0000 shartal@rogers.com 109551 at/15a /15a/babble/disability-issues/new-reviews-ongoing-odsp-entitlement-very-important#comments Help; Any And All Ideas Welcome https://www.google.com//15a/babble/disability-issues/help-any-and-all-ideas-welcome <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p><p>????????????????????????? <strong>The Most Important Things Are The Hardest To Say:</strong>?</p> <p><strong>My Bullied at Work Experience:</strong></p> <p>?????????While everyone is worried how Canada Post is going to get their millions from the NDP, Canada Post is why I am unable to walk. ?Against doctors' orders I was ORDERED TO perform a task that I was medical/physically incapable of by my supervisor or be fired on spot. ?I also endured racism, bullying and discrimination from them, and my member of parliament at the time.</p> <p><strong>My Bullied Reality Now:</strong></p> <p>?????????
