Protecting Children -- Edith Bunker, “All in the Family”

The Thalamus Center project is about
Protecting Children by education about Human Sexuality.

There is a scene in an old TV series called “All in the Family” where Edith Bunker is experiencing menopause and she does not know what is happening to her. Edith’s daughter Gloria is explaining to her the symptoms of menopause. Edith feels bad that her daughter has to tell her about menopause.

Edith expresses her frustration and sadness about her lifetime lack of knowledge about human sexuality. (A video clip, click on the quote, below)

Edith is not alone even today. Much of the opposition to same sex marriage is likely to a great degree related to feelings and confusion about many aspects of human sexuality exactly like Edith, on the part of millions of people, for women as well as for men, everyone. Ignorance about human sexuality is extremely harmful to children.

Great Cause BUT I would be very cautious using Paypal in any form!!!


Per Paypal's amended User Agreement, Paypal can and does withhold users funds for 21-180 days via Paypal's "sole discretion"!!! There is no REAL arbitration process for users wanting to fight those holds, as Paypal IS judge, jury and executioner.

Paypal is owned by ebay Inc. and ebay is currently destroying their own site with Whitman & Donahoe's "Disruptive Innovation" scheme. ebay Inc. stocks have plummeted and previous users have been fleeing both sites, since Donahoe became ebay's CEO in March of 2008.

I would NOT use Paypal due to their lengthy holds, numerous "glitches", high fees and extremely slow processing!

PLEASE search the internet for "Ebay Stockholders and Sellers Calling For Immediate Termination of John Donohoe CEO Petition" to read what users of Paypal and ebay are TRULY experiencing!

See what ebay Incs own employees are saying about the horrendously poor upper management at ebay Inc. by going to glassdoor (dotcom)
