TORONTO, October 11, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A childhood education conference to take place next weekend at the University of Toronto will feature keynote speaker Dr. James Kincaid, a Professor of English at the University of Southern California who has been criticized as being highly sympathetic to pedophiles.
The conference titled "Bodies at Play: Sexuality, Childhood and Classroom Life" is sponsored by the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies under the auspices of the University of Toronto's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE).
"Kincaid's earlier work in Victorian literature and culture and in literary theory has yielded to publication in cultural studies, most recently in the history and current cultural practices of eroticizing children and instituting elaborate scapegoating rituals to disguise what we are doing," Kincaid's biography in the conference announcement states.
Kincaid is an American academic whose studies into the sexualization of children have led him to the conclusion that all adults are secretly sexually attracted to children but use revulsion at the actions of overt pedophiles to hide their inner feelings.
"If the child is desirable, then to desire it can hardly be freakish, Kincaid wrote in his book Child-Loving: The Erotic Child and Victorian Culture. "To maintain otherwise is to put into operation pretty hefty engines of denial and self-deception."
He believes society condemns pedophilia in order to maintain its moral posturing, while living through child molesters vicariously.
"So, what about the way we talk about child-loving? The talk is monster-talk, first of all, talk that is busy rejecting the pedophile," Kincaid wrote. "We need the pedophile to fill our emptiness, provide the matter we otherwise miss, create our own form of existence."
Kincaid's other books include Erotic Innocence: The Culture of Child Molesting, My Secret Life, and Novels of Anthony Trollope.
Dr. Charles McVety of the Institute for Canadian Values has written an open letter to Chris Alexander, the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Canada, asking that Kincaid be denied entry into the country.
"On behalf of the 125,000 members of the Institute for Canadian Values and Canada Family Action, we request that the Minister refuse admission of Dr. James Kincaid to Canada for a lecture on October 19th, 2013 in Toronto," Dr. McVety wrote.
"Dr. Kincaid is a well-known advocate for pedophilia, a criminal activity in Canada," the letter states. "His work has been roundly condemned by the New York Times, The Daily Mail, several British Members of Parliament, and Michael Hames of Scotland Yard."
Dr. McVety adds that "the infamous organization NAMBLA (North American Man Boy Love Association) lists Dr. Kincaid as an advocate while depending on his arguments for the advancement of child abuse. Dr. Kincaid admittedly refers to himself as a "theoretical pedophile" and frequently uses the collective terms "we" or "us" when discussing child molesters."
Dr. McVety concluded, "For the sake of the millions of innocent children across Canada we ask that you refuse Dr. Kincaid's entry to this country in the midst of your government taking actions to protect children for the very thing Kincaid promotes - the criminal abuse of children.

Oh, I think so, too! We need the septuagenarian and octogenarian pedophiles to abuse those middle aged pedophiles out there. It would be just like doing some little kid for them....
I wonder how the NFL will celebrate “Pedophile Heritage Month”. Wear clear, latex uniforms?
Wow. How low we have come.
Lord, feel free to hurl an asteroid at us. I’m sure others would join me to take one for the team. Of course if you just want to send Your Son that would work too...
Anyone who has been on this planet north of 50 years can foresee how this trend is going. Either we have something akin to the “Great Awakening” in our country within the next few years or our public school will begin grooming kindergartners for these freaks.
People laughed and scoffed at me when I predicted 20 years ago that immediately after gay rights went main stream A Transgender, Transsexual and Transvestite Rights movement would become the next new, big thing.
Five years ago they similarly scoffed and laughed when I predicted that now that Gay Rights was a done deal and the Transgender, Transsexual and Transvestite Rights movement was picking up steam, pedophilia was soon become the new avant guard cause celeb.
These same people had never heard of NAMBLA, and refused to even believe such an organization existed or could exist.
That was when I first appreciated the ability of an i- phone to perform a quick internet search and shock some people (and even myself - you’d be amazed at what came up)
The slippery slope is rapidly becoming a slippery cliff.
Nervy bunch of bastards, aren’t they?
Has anyone checked this guy's computers? I bet its chock full of photos illegal pedo-sickness
Six year old cheerleaders twerking away. (got to take a shower after even visiting this thread)
This is civilization without Judeo/Christian influence. This is what Obama and his ilk are ushering in.
Amen Brother. A bullet in that overeducated perverts head would be a blessing.
I would have thought they’d go for animals before kids. But then again with El-Presidente in office they are going for all the end games right away.
“Has anyone checked this guy’s computers? I bet its chock full of photos illegal pedo-sickness”...
It’s just “research” officer....
Touch my grandkids and you get a 2x4 in the forehead.
“If the CASH is desirable, then to desire it and the plan it steal it can hardly be freakish,.....
May his chevy volt explode in his garage
No no no. What was I thinking. Journalists, THEN him.
Never heard of that caliber before.
Learn something new every day, I guess.

Get a warrant. Check his computer hard drive.
I am (somewhat) sympathetic to the idea that pedophilia is a tendency or sexual orientation, while child molestation is an action and crime. It is entirely possible (in theory) for a person to be sexually attracted to children without following thru and victimizing them.
This has become more difficult to promote in our society, now that it has become conventional wisdom that sexual orientation is inborn and immutable and that it is not possible to avoid acting on it. If homosexuality is a sexual orientation of this type, it’s difficult to imagine a reason not to classify pedophilia the same way.
There is considerable hard scientific evidence that sexual orientation to children is compulsive sexual behavior driven by the sex hormones. Recidivism in child molesters is generally well over 90%.
But child molesters treated by chemical or sexual castration have a recidivism rate well under 10% in most studies. Admittedly, in most jurisdictions this group is self-selected, molesters who don’t want to keep molesting children. But the numbers are still astonishing.
