Objectophilia - Romantically in Love with Objects

When i first learned about this condition, I was in disbelief, I didn't know that this exist!

OBJECTOPHILIA - (Wikipedia) Object sexuality or objectum sexuality, in German Objektophilie (OS), is a pronounced emotional and often romantic desire towards developing significant relationships with particular inanimate objects. Those individuals with this expressed preference may feel strong feelings of attraction, love, and commitment to certain items or structures of their fixation.

For some, sexual or even close emotional relationships with humans are incomprehensible. Some object-sexual individuals also often believe in animism, and sense reciprocation based on the belief that objects have souls, intelligence, and feelings, and are able to communicate. Contrary to sexual fetishism, the object to an OS person is viewed as their partner and not as a means to an end to enhance a human sexual relationship.

Married to Eiffel Tower

Erika LaBrie now Erika "Aya" Eiffel, an American World Archery champion athlete married the Eiffel Tower in a ceremony in 2007. She was first attracted to a bridge in her hometown then later on fell in love with LANCE, a bow (used in archery) but later on develop a strange affection and love for the Eiffel Tower that led to their "marriage". This is a bizarre sexual behavior because she couldn't fall in love with a human being.

Shocking CCTV Footage of Child Abuse in a Nursery by a Teacher

Wow, another child abuse caught on tape and this one is the shocking CCTV footage of child abuse in a nursery by a teacher in China to a 4 year old child!

This was on the new lately and if you watched the video, I know for sure you'll be fuming mad at this teacher who helplessly maltreated this poor child. You'll see that the teacher carried the girl on his arms and throws her on the floor, kicked her and tossed her again! The teacher is doing that yet no one seems to stop her (there are other teachers around).

It appears that the child has  learning difficulties, is now left severely brain damaged because of what the teacher has done! The poor child also has undergone operations but now she cannot walk already!

My gosh, thankfully the teacher is prosecuted already!

Warning: the video can be so disturbing!

Not Yet Too Late

It's always heartbreaking to watch the news about crimes being committed because most of the times the perpetrator is under the influence of drugs and liquor. Many people have become victims of these bad vices that can result in the destruction of their lives. Not everyone can enroll in a rehab centers like california treatment centers to cleanse themselves that's why many lives are ruined and more crimes are increasing.

I just hope that the families of the victims should seek help when they learned that they have a family member who's into drugs or other forms of bad vices. It's not yet too late for them to change, there is always hope.

Sponsoring a Child

I was watching the International news this evening with my mom and saw the footage of some Pakistanis victims of flood waiting for their food supply from a track. I can’t help but to shed a tear because while waiting in line they hit each other just to get water and food (that looks like an animal food to me), yay. Kids are crying with their mothers and it looks like that they’re all hungry already. Oh, I can’t help but to feel so blessed and wish there’s no poverty.

Even here in our country, we also have very poor families living in shanties and thanks to organizations like Child Charity that can help children all over the world. Their organization can provide a decent meal, clothing and medical supplies for poor kids when someone sponsor a kid. I know there are lots of good and kind-hearted that can make a difference in our society.

Could Legalizing Drugs Decrease Drug-Related Crime?

The current drug laws in the United States have created a system that imprisons individuals who should be receiving medical treatment. The laws have, essentially, turned an illness into a crime. Unfortunately for the addict and the rest of society, these laws do not provide the level of protection that prevents drug abusers from committing actual crimes such as breaking and entering, theft, and robbery. Somewhat ironically, decriminalizing drug use could reduce the amount of crime that takes place in conjunction with addiction.

How is this possible? When an addict is arrested for drug possession, he or she is sent to jail with individuals who have committed much more heinous crimes. This creates a community for the addict that consists of thieves, rapists, and murderers. By defining drug use and possession as an illegal activity akin to crimes that affect other people, our legal system creates a criminal identity for addicts who might not otherwise participate in these activities.

Once released from jail, though, the addicts have acquired new insights into how they can scour through people’s homes and businesses in search of money to pay for drugs. They, therefore, begin breaking into buildings, where they will search in your closet, through your cabinets, and under your double bed for money that they can use to fuel their habits.

If the legal system consistently gave addicts the opportunity to enroll in treatment programs, this criminal reality could change dramatically. Addicts who are given treatment are less likely to return to drug use upon release. They are, therefore, less likely to commit crimes to pay for drugs.

This is not to say that drug-related crime would disappear completely. Differentiating between drug possession and other crimes, however, would have a real impact on the amount of crimes that affect the lives of average people who are often targeted by criminals.
