Cyberstalking - From The Cyber World To the Physical World - Things Tend To Get Out Of Control

58%  of cyberstalkers are male, 32 % female, the rest are unknown or are never revealed. Cyberstalking began, by using e-mail then progressed to forums and message boards, then moved on to chat rooms, web pages but is used less frequently, anonymity being the problem usually beginning with a personal problem then moving that problem over to the Internet.

The scary thing about cyberstalking is that things may, can and do get out of control. Sometimes it leads from the cyber world back into the physical world with all its intent danger. Cyberstalking is a prelude to a more serious situation, including physical violence. It does happen, people have been murdered after being cyberstalked, even told before hand that they were going to be killed.

One way to stay safe from cyberstalkers is to stay anonymous and not have an online, identifiable presence and to communicate with only people you trust and don't put any identifying names or facts on online profiles. How many profiles have you filled out lately. I know facebook had mine, g+had mine, yahoo and all the rest. I've changed who can see them, I would suggest changing all your profiles so no one can see them too. Don't use your real name and don't be gender specific. No one needs to know these things, especially your age, heaven forbid! From the cyber world to the physical world things tend to get out of control.

There is a big difference in exposing someone for unscrupulous business ethics and cyberstalking. In the eyes of the law you are allowed to express honestly held opinions but not if what you are saying is based on untrue claims. Rule of thumb, if it's true it's okay. Stating facts that are true on a web-site does not constitute as cyberstalking, especially if it's true.

My advice, keep your online profile private. With me, I'm Dog Brindle, at least today and I could be a male or I could be a female. That pic of me up at the top of the page wearing a touque, that may not even be me. I could be old, I could be young. I could be Chinese or live in India or live where I say, on Vancouver Island. You'll never really know. You'll just have to trust me, eh? 

WHOA has reported that most cyberstalking has been resolved by simply changing your profile so the public can't see it.

'Little Devils' and 'Little Angels' Two Labels That Influenence Sexuality in Young Children?

What is a 'Little Devil'? 

What else could it be but a boy?

Besides being the little impish rug-rat down the road that always seems to be getting into trouble, you can't help but be a little skeptic about calling him a 'Little Devil. A demon, really, come on, why be so harsh? Why not a 'Little Angel'?

Devils and demons are prevalent in; religion, the occult, literature, fiction and folklore, all one in the same. Often depicted as an evil malevolent deity that didn't quite make it to heaven and dropped down to hell, because of his inter-actions with human beings. How else could you explain a devil or a demon? But a little boy? They do tend to be a little devilish at times, just by their actions and their decision making skills.

Then, that must mean a 'Little Angel' is a girl.

A 'Little Angel' is a deity that did make it, or will make it someday, all the way to the top or to heaven, on they're efforts alone, not hurting anyone along the way, a success in the true sense of the word. How else could you explain; Mum, Grandma, or baby sister? They're all Angels. They could do no wrong. 

But and this is a big but and all depends on circumstances, situations and all those things, that if you get them mixed up, where the boy is the 'Little Angel' and the girl is the 'Little Devil', then there's reason for concerned, that's a whole new topic, rollplaying in young children. 

So, if you do, stop calling your little son a 'Little Angel', they know what you mean and stop calling your little daughter a, 'Little Devil'.  You might be sorry one day, have you seen the movie ' The Bad Seed'? That was demon possessed little girl. A classic!  

Unfortunately, it will just be something to blame on you and your parental skills when they get older. 

So, be wary of using the terms, 'Little Angel and Little Devil" incorrectly. It's just a subtle way of calling your son a girl and your daughter a boy. They understand and are influenced by every suggestion you make, at a very early age, just by name calling that categorizes them, to the point of putting a label on them. After all they're not stupid, they're just learning that's all! 

I'm just saying, eh? I'm no psychiatrist, but I do know what it's like to be called a 'Little Angel', I was always the 'Little Angel' growing up. Still am.
