Understanding Criminal Charges?

A friend has been charged with 10 counts of second degree felony sexual exploitation of a minor. I'm shocked, confused, and pretty grossed out - but I've heard there's a lot of gray area when it comes to sex offense charges (i.e., the friend who told me that his neighbor across the street became a registered sex offender after getting caught peeing in public one time, etc.). Can anyone offer some insight into what these charges could mean? [more inside]

Plan to move to across the country for love. How do I tell my parents?

Since having a manic episode about a year and a half ago, my parents started treating me like I was a minor again (I'm almost 30 now). How do I most respectfully tell them that I'm am going to move without turning it into "I'M NOT ASKING FOR PERMISSION, DAMMIT: I'M MOVING AND YOU CAN'T STOP ME"? Thanks, mefites. [more inside]

Someone is intentionally attacking me & my family online.

Someone has created a site via Google Sites that is radically defaming myself and my family. We're not talking about a 12 year playing a prank. It's a systematic attack with the most egregious accusations one can imagine. They're parroting my personal business site and posting info that is not only libelous, but fantastically horrible. The junk they've posted about myself, my wife and our two small children is heartbreaking. We believe we know who it is (but have no proof) and have contacted the FBI on advice of a lawyer. They've told us they'll call us once they get jurisdiction figured out and the cybercrime guys take a look. The kind SAIC looked at the site and understood the problem but only got the ball in motion. That could take weeks/months for them to move on this and the site needs to come down, now. HOW?

Mentally-ill son soon to turn 18; seeking advice about guardianship

My son is 17 years old, turning 18 at the end of July. In mid-May, he was hospitalized for two weeks when he became floridly psychotic -- his first episode. As he recovers post-hospitalization, I want to get some sort of guardianship in place so that I can step in and manage his healthcare and finances if he's unable to. I don't know, however, what kinds of options there are; I've heard the terms "healthcare proxy" and "power of attorney", but I haven't wrapped my brain around what those encompass, or what it would entail to apply for these things. One person says I need a good lawyer; another says I just need to get a boilerplate form from Staples and get it notarized. I'm in Massachusetts -- Boston/Cambridge/MetroWest. Hope me please!

Consequences from getting a credit card as a minor?

When I was a dumb 16-year-old, I got a credit card from one of the largest issuers in the US. On the application, I was 100% truthful, except that I added 3 years to my DOB so that I would be over 18. I paid the card off in full, and closed it. I've also filed disputes with credit bureaus to correct my DOB. Are there any other ramifications I'm not considering? [more inside]

Who's using all the sex toys? (NSFWish)

Help me solve a minor conundrum. Gay man here, had lots and lots of sexual encounters over the course of 14ish years. And in all that time, I've had exactly one guy pull a sex toy on me to use in the bedroom. (I was 18, it was a butt plug bigger than a raccoon's head, and yeah was never gonna happen). So just who is using all the sex toys? [more inside]

"Minor chords = sad": Just a Western thing?

Can anyone with good academic-library-fu point me toward an article that argues for cultural differences between how certain keys or chords are interpreted affectively? Specifically, I'm looking for a source for the claim that perceiving minor chords as sad is specifically a Western thing, and that non-Westerners don't perceive minor chords as sad and/or they perceive other types of chords as sad (or whatever).

Trust for minor in event of parent's death.

Is there a site where I can see actual trust language regarding a trust that would be created to hold an inheritance for a minor child until age 25. I have been to an attorney....they ask me what I want. I won't know what I want until I see it. There are many details that need to be covered like where the money is invested and how requests for money from the kid's custodian are handled.
