In 2013 Joe and Charlotte’s baby Jaden suddenly collapsed. The parents called 9-1-1 but almost immediately doctors suspected child abuse. Despite a number of medical experts testifying that Jaden had a genetic or nutritional defect that caused weak bones and other health problems, Joe was convicted of child abuse and sentenced to 15 years, the minimum the judge could give …
Sexuality and disabilities are not addressed or explored enough. Dr. Mitchell Tepper (www.DrMitchellTepper.com) reports that he “dove head first into the field” because of a diving accident years ago, breaking his neck. Since then he has become an internationally recognized sexuality educator, disability expert, and pioneer in spinal cord research and orgasm. His book “Regain that Feeling: Secrets to Sexual Self-Discovery” reveals that you don’t have to break your neck to be a great lover but you can learn a lot from someone who has. He has identified the importance of trust, safety, and connectedness. Pleasure is not merely a physical sensation, orgasm does not just happen between your legs, intimate connection fuels desire, and love is an action not a feeling. Dr. Mitch does coaching via the phone or skype in all parts of the world – not only for vets but for men and women who were born with or acquired disabilities. His contact information and ways to buy his book are on his website. Furthermore, by going to www.SexSmartFilms.com you can see him in other videos demonstrating tantra, ED, facilitated sex, and using touch via pleasure maps. In today’s program, there is much information – even for those of us who are able-bodied! The March 7th show will explore in more depth “Making Love after Making War.” Please tune-in!
David Mielke teaches psychology and sociology in a California high school, where he educates young men and women in the truth about psychiatry. Many of these high school students are taking psychiatric medication, many are diagnosed with ADHD, and some have been told they are too disabled to do routine projects like taking notes from a board. He gives vivid examples of the disabling effects of the diagnoses and how they push young people toward learned helplessness and self-doubt. He describes how the principles of good teaching run smack into the bad teachings of modern psychology and psychiatry. He explains how teachers can empower students to learn and to have more confidence in themselves. This was a very interesting hour for me and should be so for everyone interested in our nation’s youth and in education.
Banned-Books Week 2016 is here, and Mickey spends the hour in conversation with three
defenders of the “freedom to read.” They explore some of the ways in which students’
access to books can be inhibited. In keeping with this year’s BBW theme of “diversity”,
the guests note that most books targeted for removal from school library shelves
are by and about people of color, LGBT individuals, or people with disabilities.
