Last Friday a math teacher was fired accused of sex acts with her students in Tacoma City.
Powell, a mathematics teacher at Lincoln High School was released on her own recognizance and ordered to stay with her mother in Sequim.
Powell admitted to Tacoma police that she had sexual contact with two of her students on January.
She told the police she sent a third student an inappropriate text message, for which she later apologized.
There is no record of student complaints against her.
A ‘Free Powell’ Facebook page was created some time after her arrest.
Pedophilia has been widely viewed as a psychological disorder triggered by early childhood trauma.
Today experts see it as a biologically rooted condition that does not change like any other sexual orientation.
Pedophiles share a number of physical characteristics, including differences in brain wiring.
It’s now thought that about 5% of men are pedophiles and 1% of women.
These findings have been widely accepted among scientists but have had little impact on social attitudes or law.
We keep alarming ourselves against this kind of behavior without accepting it.
It’s just a matter of time like it was with premarital sex and gay sex that we, as a society, admit pedophile sex as a valid option.
We do not choose to be attracted to children, and we cannot make that attraction go away, said Molly Distubez a 64 year old lawyer from Nevada.
Pedophiles also share physical characteristics.
They are shorter than other people and three times more likely to be left-handed or ambidextrous.
Their IQs are about 70 to 80 points lower than average and they are more prone to childhood head injuries.
Certain qualities like impetuosity, sexual preoccupation and lack of empathy are also shared by sex offenders.
Pedophiles are good people who are struggling.
One of the concerns with labeling pedophilia a sexual orientation is the potential for parallels to be drawn with homosexuality.
Pedophiles will remain hidden if they continue to be hated and feared, which would impede efforts to better understand this sexual orientation and thereby prevent child sexual exploitation.
As soon as we start seeing pedophilia as a sexual orientation we will end child abuse.
It’s just a matter of semantics.

Videogames are healthier than play with kids
In the recent years we encountered some articles indicating that videogames are not healthy so is time to clarify and explain that videogames are a path to smarter and gentler people.
Researchers have found that playing video games including violent shooter titles boost children’s learning, health and social skills.
Playing violent shoot them up games such as Call of Duty enhances creativity and interpersonal abilities.
Playing with other kids could be risky given that sometimes we can’t control how clean they are and we cannot select the most intelligent ones to allow them to play with our owns.
On the other side videogames increase concentration, visual abilities, hand eye coordination and fuel your imagination, it inspires you. Playing videogames on a daily basis also gives you better reflexes, sharpens your instincts and improve problem solving skills and the mind’s ability to process information.
Video games cause also personal benefits because people who spend too much time sitting while playing video games don’t get into socializing much and therefore they avoid any kind of discussion or misunderstanding.
They keep a perfect record on their relationships and everybody is always willing to welcome them since they don’t usually appear in the social sphere.
True friendships last forever and the basement of true friendship is not bothering each other and if you play too much video gaming you’ll never be the super bored person that stays longer than needed at friend home.
If you want to have healthier relationships you should at least play 5 or 6 hours a day video games to enjoy a balanced, well rounded social life.
Playing with other people instead of video games led to depression, anxiety and inhibited social development.
If you are smart enough you can always win playing with other people and on video games you always find another level, another challenge to keep improving and that it what makes you a better person.
Video games are a place where you learn failure because you can lose a game and since failure is part of life there is why videogames are much healthier than playing with real kids, because videogames reflects real life.
Playing video games gives you the confidence to be anything you want, you can be a hero who saves the world, or a villain who destroy it and that it was life is all about.
Video games had distinct effects on the brain because achieving a high score requires players to react quickly, while processing information in their peripheral vision, multi-tasking, making predictions and processing the constant player feedback.
Individuals who play games at least 2 hours per day are better than non-gamers at rapidly processing complex information, estimating numbers of objects, controlling where their attention is focused and switching rapidly between tasks.
They are also better able to identify distraction and quicker to return their focus to the main task and at ignoring irrelevant, distracting visual information and made better decisions.
Playing video games lead to beneficial brain changes and consequently affect our behavior positively.
A study held in the US and Japan concludes that the children are more likely to help others in real life or in simulated tasks if they play video games at least 3 hours a day.
Videogames also affect children’s sense of empathy since they don’t have to play with kids with a different mental level, the video game level itself with the kid intelligence so they always find it interesting.
Kids that play with other real kids are always more violent that kids that only play videogames as they become better at noticing the feelings and reactions of others.
Playing games offer us an opportunity to take greater control over the shaping of our own minds and brains.
We are moving forward to most parents wanting their children to be educated by videogames and to discover how games can be the better teachers we can harness.
Let’s wish and hope that in the immediate future gaming will become the universal path for education, not school.
