The Culture Shock They Never Mention

On September 7, 2021, I was working as a legal asistant and legislative aide for state legislator and in this capacity I recieved texts and a call from someone who was supposedly his client. He claimed to be a schizophrenic bipolar person in the Al Canon jail on a contraband phone. It soon devolved intoContinue reading “The Culture Shock They Never Mention”

Tangible Results, Awareness Raising, and the Lack of Realpolitik on the Left

There is an anti-bullying activist of C-list fame whom I attended college and had a bad relationship with in Charleston. I won’t mention her name although she is barely famous enough I wouldn’t feel guilty about doing so. She had a suicide attempt after her fellow high school students made a Facebook page and trashedContinue reading “Tangible Results, Awareness Raising, and the Lack of Realpolitik on the Left”

Disability & Metaphorical Asexuality

I refer not to literal asexuality in the sense of being an asexual and I don’t refer to not having sex in the literal sense. I have written about incels before on this blog and their etiology is not the lack of sex but their being adults in an adult culture with an adolscent-style leagueContinue reading “Disability & Metaphorical Asexuality”

How Should Social Media be Reformed

While there are minor reforms that I could discuss such as forcing feeds to be integrated like happened with email in the 1990s, before which Compuserve, Prodigy, Interland, the like had seperate services and one could not recieve an email from another email service. My birth was blogged by my father on Prodigy but itContinue reading “How Should Social Media be Reformed”

Corporal Punishment & Liberalism

Recently, Cassville, Missouri reinstated the paddling of students. Now, I am against this for myriad reasons, obviously. First, the overwhelming consensus of developmental and child psychologists are against it at the same level virologists are supportive of vaccines and climate scientists believe in global warming. It isn’t a question. It has been settled since theContinue reading “Corporal Punishment & Liberalism”

Boundaries in a Wasteland

People with disabilities often don’t live in the metaphhorical troposphere. That is the world of dating, drama, gossip, parties, substance use, and, generally, the sweaty, dark, and blackllit world adults are stereotyped as living in. For many, it is a world of long periods of silence broken by the occasional oasis of a platonic coffeeContinue reading “Boundaries in a Wasteland”

Is Barbie Woke (Part II)

Is Barbie Woke (Part I): https://jacksonhamiltonivs.org/2022/06/11/is-barbie-woke/ The Meth of Liberalism Recently, I was watching a micro-documentary about the kids’ shows I grew up on and those shortly after my time. One thing I often highlight about them is that I was in Special Ed and there was no Special Ed in any of those shows.Continue reading “Is Barbie Woke (Part II)”

The System To Handle Bullying

When I expound on my history of being bullied, my tactics regarding how I handled it are almost universally objected to. That of peer-to-peer diplomacy as opposed to beating them up or involving vice principals or the police. The idea that I forgave them is also either shocking to or opposed by them. Yet, ironically,Continue reading “The System To Handle Bullying”

Nursing Anxiety: How to and Not to Treat Acute Attacks

After everything that went wrong in handling my autism came the consequences of such poor conditions. That would be the PTSD, anxiety, and depression that emerged from the inferno that was my childhood and adolescence. As I’ve said in earlier articles, I have no interest in feeling sorry for myself and I am scientifically describingContinue reading “Nursing Anxiety: How to and Not to Treat Acute Attacks”

Cutting and Suicide in the Deep South

                For all of Charleston’s faults, it has become more politically liberal and socially progressive and with that came a greater sympathy for those enduring personal traumas. While it has been far from perfect, the northern transplants that have made this city more progressive have not taken what may be considered the boys-will-be-boys approach toContinue reading “Cutting and Suicide in the Deep South”
