Skip to comments.Redefining ‘pedophilia’ as a ‘sexual orientation’
Posted on 10/28/2013 11:05:00 AM PDT by markomalley
I have written more than once that a goal of homosexualists includes the elimination of the age of consent. Goals like this are attained through creeping incrementalism.
I just read this, from the University of Southern California:
Pedophilia Now Classified As A Sexual Orientation
People can classify themselves as heterosexual, homosexual, asexual, metrosexual. There are endless sexual orientations under the sun, and now, pedophilia can be added to the list.
In the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM V), the American Psychological Association (APA) drew a very distinct line between pedophilia and pedophilic disorder. Pedophilia refers to a sexual orientation or profession of sexual preference devoid of consummation, whereas pedophilic disorder is defined as a compulsion and is used in reference to individuals who act on their sexuality. [First step, change the language, change definitions.]
APAs decision has given rise to numerous pedophilia-advocacy groups, the chief of them being B4U-ACT, a non-profit grassroots organization based in Maryland. Created in 2003 primarily as a means for minor-attracted persons to be open about their sexual preferences in a supportive atmosphere, B4U-ACT is now widening the scope of their organization.
According to spokesperson and registered sex offender Paul Christiano, the pedophilia-advocacy group is working towards de-stigmatizing the mental health community. Christiano explained that negative societal attitudes towards minor-attracted persons trickle down to policy-making and the mental health community.
Read the rest there.
This is dreadful.
Good. Now that pedophilia is defined as a sexual orientation and the left says that you can’t ‘cure’ people of sexual orientations then can we skip to the chase and start putting child molesters to death instead of pretending to rehabilitate them?
Another day, another depressing thing in these US of A.
The majority of us define pedophile as “target”.
Actually, they will assume protected class status like the homosexuals.
Homosexuality has always been about the vile molestation of young boys.
“You were right about this” ping.
Who DIDN’T see this coming?
Those who wanted to advance the agenda at all costs, that’s who.
I will even say they probably saw it coming and didn’t care,
they just denied it so they could get the next step of the agenda advanced.
Any way of finding who changed the version?
Next come the animal lovers and the necrophiles. Consenting beasts and corpses for them!
see Harvey Milk
Wait - do we have to add pedophilia to the list of eleven “genders”? Somebody has to help me keep up here.
I’ve heard that castration cures Pedophilia.
Not always. It can help though.
If Republican’s have a “War on Women” then the Democrats definitely have a “War on Children”. Born and un-born.
Watch how they drive this agenda. First it will be the social media, then “hip” media like MTV putting a more positive spin on it. Pop music and movies will make it seem more mainstream under the guise of being ‘edgy’ and ‘pushing the limits’. The old “not that there’s anything wrong with that” attitude will work it’s way in, just as with queers. They’ll start by trying to decriminalize the borderline cases like when a 18 year old guy has a 16 year old girlfriend and before long, we’ll be at the bottom of another slippery slope.
Only if done with baseball bat, blowtorch and box cutter.
I like lead poisoning better.
When do age limits on sex and marriage become unconstitutional?
Since I ride a motorcycle to work I’m just going to not bother changing into dress clothes and stay in my leathers, boots, etc. I’ll just tell my boss it’s a sexual fetish and the company has to let me dress how I please to be more inclusive.
...think they cannot possibly win this time?
...look around you....think again...
Oh, if only it were so.
The libertarians have already taken small steps in this direction by refusing to vote to enforce child porn laws.
In the book “Short Answers to the Tough Questions” by libertarian Mary J. Ruwart who was a leading candidate for the 2008 Libertarian Party presidential nomination
She wrote-— “”Children who willingly participate in sexual acts have the right to make that decision as well, even if it’s distasteful to us personally,” Ruwart wrote. “When we outlaw child pornography, the prices paid for child performers rise, increasing the incentives for parents to use children against their will.””
right here on this website they proudly say the government has no power to be involved in something like child sex prostitution and this would include child porn
we will now be called commies for not agreeing that this is perfectly okay and government has now constitutional power to intervene
You can find some of that crap on this thread:
Using the word ‘crap’ in public and in print, doesn’t seem very conservative.
What is the sexual orientation of the victim?
Did you read through to the original web page and the comments?
Disturbing comments I might add.
This won’t take them nearly as long as homoacceptance did.
10 years, max before age of consent isn’t much above preschool. If that.
That shouldn’t amuse you, it should remind you to lay off of DU language.
Of course, the sexually perverse homosexuals wanted sodomy to be “normal” so they could then go after other sexual perversions like raping children.
The worst language I use is CRAP. They use “crap” in children’s movies and TV shows. No that this makes it okay, I just never thought of it as a curse word.
Please, no. I want to be able to keep my food down.
It is, and we all know what it means, the left keeps moving the goal posts, and TV and now the internet are the best tools they have.
Many of us have abandoned TV but it is tough to get on the net to read the news and political opinion and start the morning with some of the things that we see even here at FR, things that a lot of us wouldn’t tolerate in our homes and around our wives, girlfriends, kids, our mothers, it seems to be growing leaps and bounds.
It seems that 3 or 4 cuss words are becoming about 30% of many people’s vocabularies, they are used to describe everything, and of course describe nothing, but the users seem to think it is keeping it real, making it gritty, that it sounds hip or even more intimate, it seems to be the next level of the lower culture conquering the higher.
We watched this as black slang and high fives became the left’s hip “keeping it real” thing in the 1970s and 1980s, then tattooing, now cussing like an uneducated construction laborer or ghetto dweller.
So, like, I know, right?
Seriously I will try to be more aware of my language now.
How about a millstone tied around the neck and thrown into the sea?
Anyone thinking one of my children is part of their orientation will end up dead.
sounds like work, but I can compromise
Weird. No one on that thread was advocating for pedophilia..
Lurker and I have both been here longer then you. Been right longer too...
“Acts of Capitalism between consenting adults.”
Note the “adult” part and just knock off the calumny.
In a libertarian society, children’s Rights are held in trust by their parents until the age of majority. Anyone trying to violate my child’s rights would be subject to the same penalty as if they tried to violate my rights... Ie; death by my bullet.
In reponse to my posts I was told that the federal government had no right to regulate even 12 year old drug addicted prostitutes.
“No one on that thread was advocating for pedophilia”
They were advocating having no laws against it.
Not a big difference.
Libertopians once in a while throw out the “adult” thing, but they do not mean it.
So, there will be male homosexual male pedophiles, male homosexual female pedophiles, female homosexual female pedophiles and finally female homosexual male pedophiles. There is no such thing as “GAY” in public, court or medical records as there is no such thing as “Lesbians” either in official records (what other kind of records would there be but legal/official) Someone else can identify pedophiles under the “BISEXUAL” flag.
Some day you may want to have an honest discussion.
Ping me when that day arrives.
You cannot have honest discussions with people who think drug addicted 12 year hookers is something that should be legal.
Which i have yet to see here.
When they do, then you’ll have a point. But, not until then.
I'm sure he didn't like them at all, but he did not think they should be stopped from doing whatever they were doing by government.
Notice we were specifically NOT discussing "consenting adults"
I just heard Mark Levin call these gays he met and a gay man he spoke to on the phone conservatives. This is so bizarre! I can not believe what I heard!
I can not believe that Mark Levin just called a gay caller a conservative. This is so bizarre! What the heck is going on!
It would seem to me that if dsm or the psyc profession were to categorize pedophilia as an orientation seperate from engaging in the act that many laws would immediately support it without being rewritten. Depending on how orientation is defined in the statutes.
I think these guys are closer to victory than any of us realize.
