Two day forum aimed at preventing child sexual abuse in Inuit communities

first_imgAnnette FrancisAPTN NewsSinger Susan Aglukak mixed song and speech as the keynote speaker to get her message out at a conference aimed at coming up with preventative solutions to stop child sexual abuse in Inuit communities.Aglukak was abused when she was eight years old.That’s why many of her songs are part of her own healing journey.Aglukak said with no supports in place, her parents relied on their faith.“I’ve grown up all my life in the church, I’ve always believed there’s something greater and without this unseen believe,” Aglukak told the gathering. “The choice to believe in a thing we don’t see, it’s a powerful tool when you set on a healing journey because it’s not easy to set out on a healing journey when the things you want to attain is forgotten, you forget who that child was before the assault  and the abuse.”According to the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK), 41 per cent of Inui respondents to a 2008 survey in Nunavut said they had experienced severe sexual abuse during their childhood.Natan Obed, president of the ITK said the rate of child sexual abuse gets to the heart of some of the challenges Inuit are faced with.He said that’s why it’s imperative to talk openly about violence and child sexual abuse in their communities.“We want what is best for all and trying to accept and come to terms with this reality of our communities and then move away from the reality and interventions that cause less violence that create less violent communities that create safer spaces for our children that de-normalize abuse,” said Obed.Obed said during the hearings for the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Nunavut, stories of childhood sexual abuse were told again, and again.Yvonne Ninego, deputy minister of Family Services in Nunavut is one of the 60 participants at the gathering.She said this is a conversation that is desperately needed.“There needs to be more training for front line workers, and more resources in place for victims but, it starts with the conversation,” she said.“We don’t hear the stories, there’s only limited cases actually formally reported and there’s a reason for that, it could be cultural, language, so many reasons, fear in a small community, but it takes starting the conversation and I think that’s starting,” she said.afrancis@aptn.ca@aptnafrancislast_img read more

USFP Agrees in Principle to Join Abdelilah Benkiranes Government

Casablanca – The Administrative Commission of the Socialist Union of Popular Forces (USFP) has agreed in principle in a meeting held on Saturday to join Abdelilah Benkirane’s coalition government. The USFP meeting was held over a month after King Mohammed VI entrusted Abdelilah Benkirane, Secretary General of the Justice and Development Party (PJD), to form a government coalition.Benkirane has talked with numerous other party leaders, but only two parties have confirmed their participation in Benkirane’s government, namely the Party of Progress and Socialism (PPS) and the Istiqlal Party (IP). This is not enough to form a majority. USFP’s Administrative Commission held the meeting to evaluate the performance of the party in the previous elections, according to Arabic-language news source, Hespress.USFP’s Administrative Commission authorized the party to begin deliberations with Benkirane, meaning that it agreed in principal to join the PJD, the Party of Progress and Socialism (PPS), and Independent Party (PI)to form a coalition government.USFP’s Secretary General, Idriss Lachgar, stated during the meeting that he “will not be nominated to any ministry in the next government, so as not to influence the talks with the head of government.”The USFP stated that all it focuses on is “the new government’s fundamental platform, important pillars, and reorganization priorities. This envisages a reduction in the number of its members and the effectiveness and efficiency of its performance.”Edited by Patrick Shaffer read more

UN probe into exLebanese premiers assassination faces threats its chief says

“The safety and security of the commission’s members must be a priority,” UN International Independent Investigation Commission (UNIIIC) head Detlev Mehlis said as the 15-member body took up the interim report he presented earlier this month. UNIIIC has been extended until 15 December.”It should be noted that despite all the precautionary measures, the level risk which was already high will increase further, particularly after the issuance of the report,” he added, while noting the major role Lebanese security forces had so far played in addition to the commission’s own security team.”I would also like to add that the commission has received a number of threats which were deemed, in the assessment of our security personnel, to be credible,” he said.Asked about the threats at a later news conference, Mr. Mehlis said flyers were distributed in south Lebanon threatening the commission and himself, and other more individual threats from groups, “but as far we were able to verify or to trace these threats they definitely do not come from any, let me say, official sites.”Mr. Mehlis said the extension of the commission’s mandate would provide “yet another opportunity for the Syrian authorities to show greater and meaningful cooperation, and to provide any relevant substantial evidence on the assassination.”In his report Mr. Mehlis noted that while the Syrian authorities, after initial hesitation, had cooperated to a limited degree with the commission, several interviewees tried to mislead the investigation by giving false or inaccurate statements and that a letter addressed from the Foreign Minister proved to contain false information.”The Syrian authorities may wish to carry out on their part their own investigation into the assassination of Mr. Hariri in an open and transparent manner,” he said today. “This would enable to ‘fill in the gaps’ and to have a clearer picture about the organizers and perpetrators of the 14 February terrorist act.”In his news conference Mr. Mehlis said he had asked the Syrian authorities to provide files of Mr. Hariri, and “the Syrian authorities told us ‘well, we do not have a single document,’ which, frankly speaking, I do not think is true. But what can the commission do? I cannot send 500 investigators which I don’t have to Syria to look for documents because I wouldn’t know where to find them.”So… we expect from the Syrian authorities not to just react, but to act, to really look into the matter themselves.”As another example of the dealings with Syria, he cited Syrian intelligence chief Rustom Ghazali as telling “us he has the most friendly and personal relationship with Mr. Hariri, and then we come across these taped telephone calls where he is referring to Prime Minister Hariri as a dog. So somehow that doesn’t fit and I think it would be a good idea if the Syrian authorities just would make an extra effort by themselves.”The bombing that killed Mr. Hariri and 20 others led to renewed calls for the withdrawal of all Syrian troops and intelligence agents who had been in Lebanon since the early stages of the country’s 1975-1990 civil war. Syrian withdrew its military forces in April.After Mr. Mehlis’s presentation and addresses by the Syrian and Lebanese representatives, the Council held consultations on the report. read more

Ohio State mens soccer preparing for first ever matchup with Rutgers

OSU senior midfielder Max Moller (11) attempts to dribble past Bowling Green junior defender Jake Genrich during an Oct. 22 game at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU won, 3-0.Credit: Patrick Kalista / Lantern photographerIn the final stretch of the season, the Ohio State men’s soccer team seems to be getting hot at the right time — or at least taking advantage of a more manageable schedule.After 11 of the Buckeyes’ (6-5-3, 3-2-0) first 12 opponents ranked in the top 60 of the RPI, OSU took care of business against No. 138 Wisconsin and No. 99 Bowling Green in its last two.“This could be one of the most important parts of the season,” senior midfielder Max Moller said. “We want to show for this university and really represent this university really well. This could be the difference for the NCAA Tournament and for the Big Ten. We need to take advantage of these weaker teams.”That trend could continue on Saturday, when OSU is scheduled to take on Rutgers (5-8-1, 1-4-1) — which is ranked No. 80 in the RPI.OSU coach John Bluem said he doesn’t know much about Rutgers, as the schools have never met because Rutgers is a first-year addition to the Big Ten. Bluem said he had a chance to scout the Scarlet Knights earlier in the week, however, and was impressed with what he saw.“From what I’ve seen on the videotape, they have some really talented attacking players,” Bluem said. “So defensively, we’re going to have to be spot on.”The game is the second of a three-game homestand that will represent the final home games of the regular season for the Buckeyes. However, players — such as freshman forward Marcus McCrary — plan to make at least one more appearance in Columbus this season to host a quarterfinal matchup in the Big Ten Tournament, McCrary said.“We need to win out to play at home again and hopefully go to the NCAA Tournament,” he said.Bluem explained that the goal for the Buckeyes is to finish in the top four of the Big Ten in order to host a quarterfinal game. Currently, the Buckeyes sit fourth in the conference with nine points, three points behind leader Penn State and a point behind Michigan State and Maryland, who are tied for second.“The key is to finish the regular season somewhere in the top four,” Bluem said. “Everyone is so tightly packed together, and I think it’s going to stay that way, so it’s all going to come down to taking care of business here at home.”The Buckeyes are set to have an opportunity to control their own destiny in their final two games, when they take on one of the two teams currently a point ahead of them on the road. For now, however, the focus is on beating one of the weaker teams in the conference, Bluem said. The Scarlet Knights are currently second to last in the Big Ten.“Rutgers at home, that’s an important one to win that one,” Bluem said. “That’s what I think it’s going to come down to. I think 13 points will probably keep you in the top four.”In addition to the two full days of rest leading up to the game against Rutgers, Bluem also gave his team an additional breather in the second half against Bowling Green. Only redshirt-senior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov and sophomore defender Tyler Kidwell were not pulled out of the game by the end on Wednesday.“Obviously we got to rest some people tonight, we came out of the game without injuries, so that was an important thing,” Bluem said after the game. “To get some of the guys, the substitute players, a chance to get out on the field a little bit and run around, that was great, good for them, and they did a very, very good job.”Bluem said while the team has been fortunate to stay healthy this late in the season, he was still glad to have the opportunity to manage his players’ workloads.“I think we’re pretty lucky right now,” Bluem said. “Knock on wood that we don’t suffer any injuries, hopefully that will be the case and we can make it through the rest of our games without any serious problems.”Ivanov, who has not allowed a goal in his past two starts, might have a chance to see that streak continue against a Scarlet Knights team that has been shut out in five of its past nine games. Ivanov’s longest career shutout streak was four, set late last season.OSU’s matchup against Rutgers is scheduled for a 7 p.m. kickoff Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. read more

Cancer de la peau une Journée nationale pour sinformer et se faire

first_imgCancer de la peau : une Journée nationale pour s’informer et se faire dépisterAujourd’hui, 24 mai, se tient la 14e édition de la Journée nationale de prévention et de dépistage des cancers de la peau. Une maladie dont l’incidence a fortement augmenté au cours des dernières années en raison notamment d’une exposition trop importante aux rayons UV. Avec près de 80.000 nouveaux cas enregistrés chaque année, les cancers de la peau figurent aujourd’hui parmi les principales causes de cancer en France. Il en existe cependant plusieurs types : 70% des cas diagnostiqués sont des carcinomes basocellulaires et 20% des carcinomes épidermoïdes. Si la seconde forme est un peu plus agressive que la première, ces deux types de cancer de la peau restent dans la majorité des cas, guérissables grâce à un traitement chirurgical relativement simple. Toutefois, il existe également une autre forme de cancer : le mélanome cutané qui lui est bien plus grave en raison de sa capacité à métastaser.Or, selon les chiffres, l’incidence du mélanome a plus que triplé entre 1980 et 2005. Ainsi, c’est pas moins de 9.780 nouveaux cas qui ont été enregistrés en 2011 pour 1.620 décès. Une augmentation qui inquiète les médecins et en particulier les dermatologues. Depuis 14 ans maintenant, le Syndicat des Dermatologues vénéréologues (SNDV) a ainsi décidé d’organiser une journée annuelle de prévention et de dépistage de ces cancers. Un évènement programmé aujourd’hui même, 24 mai et qui offre l’occasion de déclencher une nouvelle fois l’alerte sur les facteurs de risque et de tordre le cou à quelques idées reçues.Un responsable majeur : les rayons UV Si le mélanome fait partie des 5 cancers à avoir connu la plus forte progression, celle-ci serait d’après les spécialistes, due à un changement de notre comportement. Un effet de mode qui nous a conduit au cours des dernières décennies à nous exposer davantage au soleil mais aussi à avoir de plus en plus recours aux rayons ultraviolets artificiels. Or, ce n’est plus un secret maintenant : les UV naturels comme artificiels sont le principal facteur de risque à l’apparition du cancer de la peau. Depuis 2009, les UV sont même reconnus par le Centre international de recherche sur le cancer (CIRC) comme cancérogènes certains. Selon les résultats obtenus par les récentes recherches, l’exposition aux UV particulièrement avant l’âge de 35 ans ferait ainsi grandement augmenter le risque de développer un cancer de la peau. D’autant plus lorsque les personnes présentent aussi des facteurs de risque individuels (phototype : peau claire et plus sensible aux rayons UV). D’où l’importance de sensibiliser le public à ces risques. Pour cela, les spécialistes ont donc décidé de s’attaquer à nos mauvaises habitudes en matière d’exposition solaire mais aussi aux fameux centres de bronzage qui fleurissent de plus en plus dans les villes, attirant les clients à coups d’offres promotionnelles.Des conseils à respecter et une meilleure réglementation “Le Baromètre Cancer Inpes-INCa qui sera publié d’ici peu montre que les Français connaissent de mieux en mieux les risques d’une exposition au soleil. Pourtant, les gestes de prévention restent largement insuffisants. Beaucoup ne respectent pas les conseils et certaines idées reçues circulent encore”, a souligné Agnès Buzyn, présidente de l’Institut National du Cancer (INCa) lors d’une conférence organisée à la veille de la journée dédiée. “Les UV artificiels sont aussi nocifs que les UV naturels. Le bronzage en cabine ne prépare pas la peau à l’exposition solaire. Et les coups de soleil ne renforcent absolument pas la peau face au soleil”, a t-elle notamment expliqué, démentant plusieurs idées reçues.Aussi, durant cette journée annuelle, les spécialistes tiennent à renouveler leurs conseils à l’approche des beaux jours et surtout de l’été. Ils recommandent ainsi d’éviter de s’exposer entre 12 et 16H, de couvrir sa peau en portant des vêtements et d’appliquer de la crème avec un indice supérieur à 30 autant de fois que nécessaire en particulier chez les enfants. Ils soulignent également l’importance de porter des lunettes de soleil, les UV pouvant aussi abimer les yeux, ainsi qu’un chapeau. Enfin, ils déconseillent fortement d’avoir recours aux UV artificiels.”Les chiffres du cancer de la peau révèlent une sorte d’urgence. Mais ce que nous essayons de souligner c’est qu’il existe des gestes de prévention simples et que le dépistage est facile”, a insisté Marisol Touraine, la ministre des Affaires sociales et de la Santé tout juste investie. car outre l’information et la prévention, l’objectif de la journée annuelle est bien évidemment d’inciter au dépistage. “Lorsque le mélanome est détecté au stade I ou II de son développement, le taux de survie relative à 5 ans s’élève à 98%. La détection précoce est donc la meilleure chance de guérison”, explique Agnès Buzyn. Détecter la maladie le plus tôt possible À lire aussiL’effrayante maladie de l’homme-arbre dont la peau se change en ”écorce”Or, les signes d’alerte peuvent être facilement repérés et conduire à aller consulter un dermatologue. En effet, le mélanome se manifeste essentiellement de deux façons : par l’apparition d’une petite tâche pigmentée sombre ou par la modification d’un grain de beauté à n’importe quel endroit du corps. Néanmoins, il s’agit de différencier un grain de beauté d’un mélanome. Pour cela, les spécialistes ont mis en place une petite règle baptisée ABCDE. Celle-ci décrit les caractéristiques qui doivent alerter : A pour Asymétrie (forme non circulaire), B pour Bords irréguliers, C pour Couleur non homogène, D pour Diamètre (supérieur à 6 mm) et E comme Evolution rapide. Si les spécialistes sont évidemment à même de détecter quelque chose de suspect, ils soulignent l’importance de l’auto-examen. “Il est simple d’éduquer à l’auto-examen. Il suffit d’être attentif et d’observer régulièrement son corps. Si quelque chose de suspect apparait, il ne faut alors pas hésiter à aller consulter”, a précisé le Dr Luc Sulimovic, président du SNDV. Celui-ci a également ajouté: “lors des 13 éditions précédentes de la journée nationale dédiée au cancer de la peau, plus de 254.000 personnes se sont fait dépister et 420 mélanomes ont été découverts ainsi que 1.885 carcinomes basocellulaires”. D’où l’importance de profiter une nouvelle fois de l’évènement pour se renseigner et se faire examiner.

Borough Looks At Repealing Non Prepared Exemption From Seasonal Sales Tax

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will be introducing an ordinance aimed at repealing the current ‘non prepared’ food items exemption to the current seasonal sales tax. Bagley: “I think it’s worth bringing up again it does help raise revenue, and I think it will go a long way in helping with our budget this year.”  The ordinance will go before the borough assembly at their bi-weekly meeting tonight, at 6 p.m. Currently Kenai Peninsula Borough residents are exempt from a 3% Borough sales tax for nine months out of the year, September 1 to May 31, on non prepared food items. The cities of Kenai, Seldovia, Soldotna, and Seward levy sales tax on groceries year round. Bagley goes onto write that under the existing tax scheme there are still not sufficient revenues to fully fund the proposed budget and also provide funding for the school district.center_img The most recent estimate of projected lost revenue due to this exemption for FY2018 is $3,521,084. In a letter from Assemblymember Dale Bagley, the sponsor of the ordinance, the borough is currently facing a serious budgetary deficit. Cuts have already been made to borough operations and more are proposed in the FY2019 budget. According to Bagley, the seasonal exemption from sales tax of non prepared food items has reduced sales tax revenues by more than $3 million per year since it began in FY2012.last_img read more

Searchers work to recover Napaskiak man who drowned in Kuskokwim River

first_imgFriday marked day 13 of the search for the body of a Napaskiak man who drowned near Bethel. Paul Kaganak fell into the Kuskokwim River two Saturdays ago. Since then, dozens of men and women from Scammon Bay to Akiachak have volunteered to drag the river to find him. “They’re making me work harder,” Alexie said, his breathing labored as he heaves the wet sandbag on board. BSAR volunteer Steve Alexie holds up a hook attached to his drag bar.(Photo by Greg Kim / KYUK) Searchers hope their beliefs, tradition, and attitude will help them find the body of Paul Kaganak so that his family can begin healing. Alexie’s job is to drop a large metal bar, called a drag bar, into the river from his boat. Four fishing lines are attached to the bar, and attached to the end of each line is a large industrial-strength metal hook. Those hooks are what catch the body by attaching onto the clothing. With all the the volunteers together, the leaders of the search party guided everyone through the mental and emotional journey of receiving a body. When asked if he wants to be the one to find Kaganak, Alexie replied, “No, you know, I don’t know. Elders say that people that are lost like this are like game animals, and they say they wait for the right person to find them. So if I’m chosen to find them, I’ll be honored. To bring closure to the family.” “You don’t have to talk about it. Just be silent. Just wait. Wait,” Paul Clark said. Clark has been part of Bethel Search and Rescue for over 20 years. He says that the searchers on the water are communicating, but not always with their mouths. Closure is what all the volunteers are here for. Nobody wanted to talk about who Kaganak was, at least not yet. They said it was inappropriate to talk about Kaganak before they found him.   “All these guys pray before they go out, try to have one mind, in mind together,” Clark explained. The goal for these searchers is to tune into the same frequency with each other and the missing. center_img The searchers pulled up a body from the river last week, not Kaganak’s. “I was… it was mixed like scared and excited at the same time, but didn’t really wana see what was being brought up,” Williams said. “It’s just like fishing, except looking for a loved one,” Alexie said.  “[A search leader] had told us to stop our cooking, turn it off, and told everyone to come down to the boat,” said Clara Williams, who cooks at the base camp. “And we got in to the boat, and we were going over, all the boats were gathering together, and they went all the way on shore, and that’s where they all gathered.” Steve Alexie from Napaskiak pulls a sandbag onto his boat. It’s the fifth one this hour. The recent river breakup has dropped massive amounts of debris into the river near Bethel, which includes leftovers from construction sites. It has slowed down the search for Kaganak’s body. The recovered body’s identity has not been released. Last year two people, who remain unrecovered, were lost in the river near Bethel: Stacey Hoalgand, who was last seen on September 13, 2018, and Daniel Smith, who was last seen on October 21, 2018. On the river, things are quiet, like they would be if you were hunting. Back at the search camp, the mood is not always somber. On shore, volunteers eat snacks, play music and laugh. They say that keeping their spirits high will help the search efforts.last_img read more

Energyharvesting shock absorber that increases fuel efficiency wins RD 100 award

first_img Explore further Citation: Energy-harvesting shock absorber that increases fuel efficiency wins R&D 100 award (2011, July 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-07-energy-harvesting-absorber-fuel-efficiency-award.html The shock absorber harvests energy from vibrations experienced by a vehicle’s suspension system into electricity that can charge the battery and power vehicle electronics. Image credit: Lei Zuo More information: Prof. Zuo’s handout and R&D 100 awardsvia: Asian American e-Zine An energy-harvesting shock absorber that can be installed in a vehicle’s suspension system to absorb the energy from bumps in the road, convert the energy into electricity, and improve fuel efficiency by 1-8% has recently won the R&D 100 award. Nicknamed the “Oscar of Invention,” the annual award is given out by R&D Magazine to recognize the top 100 innovative technologies introduced during the previous year. Previous winners have included the ATM (1973), liquid crystal display (1980), Nicoderm anti-smoking patch (1992), lab on a chip (1996), and HDTV (1998). © 2010 PhysOrg.com The new shock absorbers were designed by Professor Lei Zuo and graduate students Xiudong Tang and Zachary Brindak at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook, with funding from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). The development joins regenerative braking and other techniques that address the vast amount of energy wasted by vehicles. Although transportation accounts for 70% of oil consumption in the US, only 10-16% of the fuel energy is used to drive the car – to overcome road resistance and air drag. The rest is lost due to braking, vibrational energy dissipation, exhaust heat, and other inefficiencies.Zuo’s team developed and patented two different types of shock absorbers: linear and rotational. The new linear shock absorber consists of a small magnetic tube with high flux intensity that slides inside a larger, hollow coil tube. The rotational version employs a compact motion magnification mechanism. Due to bumps and vibrations from normal driving, the sliding tubes or rotating generator can produce an electric voltage. When installed in a medium-sized passenger car traveling at 60 mph, the shock absorber can generate 100-400 watts of energy under normal driving conditions, and up to 1600 watts on particularly rough roads. Trucks, rail cars, and off-road vehicles get a return of 1-10 kilowatts, depending on road quality. The harvested energy is then used to charge the battery and power the vehicle’s electronics, which is typically 250-350 watts with optional electronic systems turned off. This energy reduces the load on the vehicle’s alternator, which usually has a capacity about 500-600 watts. In this way, the harvested energy could increase fuel efficiency by 1-4% in conventional cars and by 8% in hybrid vehicles. As a side benefit, the shock absorber also creates a smoother ride due to the ability to adjust the suspension damping and implement self-powered vibration control. The electricity-generating shock absorber can be retrofitted into today’s vehicles by replacing conventional shock absorbers – in which the vibration energy is wasted as heat – without modification of the vehicle suspension structure. The researchers estimate that the installation cost can be recouped in 3-4 years for typical passenger vehicles, and 1-2 years for trucks.“If just 5% of the 256 million registered vehicles in this country adopt this technology, we will create a market of over six billion dollars,” said Zuo in a press release. “The total energy we can recover per year from the suspensions is more than the amount produced by the Niagara Falls Power Plant.”Zuo added that the shock absorber is not yet commercially available, but the patent is ready for licensing. The researchers recently received a grant from the SUNY Technology Accelerator Fund to speed up commercialization. This document is subject to copyright.

Gay uncle gives powerful talk on importance of talking to young kids

first_imgShare this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… A gay teacher and uncle is finding internet fame with an inspiring Tedx talk. In it, Southern California educator Chris Tompkins explains in 15 minutes the importance of talking to young kids about LGBT issues.The reason? Because staying silent about sexuality sends a strong message that it’s something taboo or shameful.Tompkins says the idea for the talk came originally from ‘a letter I wrote my family to address a conversation that wasn’t taking place.’He told GSN, ‘The purpose of my talk is to prevent homophobia and bullying before they begin.’In the talk, he says he was struck one day when a young nephew asked him at a family gathering if a woman present was his girlfriend.[embedded content]‘That question changed my life. A few years ago I wasn’t able to make it home for Christmas so when I was in town visiting my mom had all my relatives over including my childhood best friend Alyssa.’It was whilst all sat down to eat that his six-year-old nephew Aaron ran up to ask the question about the woman being his girlfriend.He says everyone laughed, because they knew she wasn’t his girlfriend, but it was an uncomfortable laugh. Tompkins felt himself go red and says that the rest of his family dismissed the question and carried on doing what they were doing.He says that kids learn, ‘regardless of what we choose to say or not say.’‘Most the of the parents I spoke with didn’t feel like their child was old enough to understand’Later that night, he says he wondered why his nephew had asked the question and deduced that his sister – the boy’s mother – had never told him his uncle was gay.‘She must believe something’s wrong with being gay.‘I thought if my sister’s son was in the dark, what about the other kids I know.‘I begin asking around and most the of the parents I spoke with didn’t feel like their child was old enough to understand. They seemed uncomfortable addressing the conversation, which was interesting to me as I remember knowing I was gay even as a young child. In fact, I was the same age as my nephew Aaron. I was six. GAYSTARNEWS- Tompkins says that if a child is old enough to ask if someone is someone’s girlfriend, they are old enough to know about gay relationships. He also argues that when parents try to hide something from a child, the child usually has some idea of what it is.‘And if you didn’t know, you’d eventually find out and then believe that whatever it was must be bad because why else wouldn’t they want you to know.‘Most of what we learn isn’t from what we think … learning is more than thinking, it’s from what we feel, sense and experience in our environments, including what we learn to believe from the things we aren’t told.’‘My sister, not communicating with her kids about her gay brother, communicates something’He goes on to say that children begin to learn about sexual attitudes from their parents between the ages of 3-5, and between 6-10 begin to show interest in pregnancy and gender roles. That’s when they begin to ask where babies come from or if someone is someone’s boyfriend or girlfriend.He says, ‘My sister, not communicating with her kids about her gay brother, communicates something. It communicates being uncomfortable with the conversation. Which implies that it’s different, further perpetuating guilt, shame and the closet experience.‘As a gay child, this is what I picked up from my surroundings.’He goes on to explain the corrosive effects of shame and internalized homophobia – often fuelling mental health problems, addiction and suicide.‘Having open conversations with children at a young age doesn’t put them at risk. Instead, it does the opposite. It keeps them from risk.’He goes on to issue a challenge to his audience.‘I have an invitation for you. Join me today by asking the kids in your life questions and answering theirs honestly. Have conversations. Don’t make assumptions. Validate and affirm them.‘Ask yourself what messages you heard growing up that impact your life today.’Got a news tip? Want to share your story?
