A new study by Dr. Timothy J. Dailey and the Washington D.C.-based Family Research Council recently confirmed what police and psychiatrists have known for decades: a definitive link exists between male homosexuality and pedophilia.
The report entitled Homosexuality and Child Sexual Abuse, shows that while homosexual men make up less than three per cent of the adult male population, they commit a disproportionate number (one third or more) of child sexual molestations. Dailey's report is being sent to parents, youth groups, school administrators, Catholic bishops, and religious organizations.
Homosexuality and Child Sexual Abuse presents a number of controversial findings. The first is that a significant percentage of child sexual abuse victims are boys. The second finding of Dailey's report contradicts the "inaccurate but widely accepted claims of sex researcher Alfred Kinsey" that homosexuals comprise at least 10 per cent of the population. Based upon a study of three large data sets, the General Social Survey, the National Health and Social Life Survey, and the U.S. Census, "a recent study in demography estimates the number of exclusive male homosexuals in the general population at 2.5 per cent, and the number of exclusive lesbians at 1.4 per cent," writes Dailey.
The FRC study also demonstrates, with a wealth of anecdotal evidence, that pedophile themes can be found throughout "mainstream" gay literature, including fiction anthologies such as: The Penguin Book on International Gay Writing, The Gay Canon: What Every Gay Man Should Read, and A History of Gay Literature:The Male Tradition. Interestingly, the late gay Beat poet Allen Ginsberg was a pedophile, and wrote articles for publications associated with the North American Man-Boy Love Association. "I reread Collected Poems and Ginsberg's two subsequent collections, surprised by the pattern of reference to anal intercourse and to pederasty that emerged," writes Dailey.
According to Homosexuality and Child Sexual Abuse, pedophiles have long existed as a subculture within the gay rights movement. Dailey quotes David Thorstad, a homosexual activist and founding member of NAMBLA, to demonstrate that by 1985, pedophilia had gained acceptance within the homosexual movement, as it was in that year that NAMBLA was admitted as a member in New York's council of Lesbian and Gay Organizations and the International Gay Association. In the words of Jim Kepner, at one time the curator of the International Gay and Lesbian Archives in Los Angeles: "A point I've been trying to make is that if we reject the boylovers in our midst today, we'd better stop waving the banner of the ancient Greeks, of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Oscar Wilde, Walt Whitman, Horatio Alger, and Shakespeare. We'd better stop claiming them as part of our history unless we are broadening our concept of what it means to be gay."
The link between homosexuality and pedophilia is rejected by many mainstream research groups, which have even begun to view pedophilia in value-neutral terms. The American Psychiatric Association removed pedophilia from its list of sexual perversions in 1994, while in 1999 the American Psychological Association published a report, "A Meta-Analytic Examination of Assumed Properties of Child Sexual Abuse Using College Samples," which "claimed child sexual abuse could be harmless and beneficial," according to a 1999 WorldNetDaily column by noted researcher Dr. Judith Reisman.
"None of this is news in the sense that this information (the link between pedophilia and homosexuality) was fundamentally proven a long time ago," Canada Family Action head Brian Rushfeldt told The Interim, "but I'm glad to see the FRC reiterating it, especially at a time when the Catholic church is struggling with the pedophile priest issue."
Rushfeldt stresses that pedophiles come in both homosexual and heterosexual forms, but there are differences between the two that need to be understood. "Do you treat the cocaine addict the same way you treat the alcoholic? If a priest abuses young boys, that's a homosexual act, and we have to recognize it as such if we want to help him."
Asked why the link exists in the first place, Rushfeldt, a former addiction counsellor, says part of the answer lies in the availability of sex. "Sex addicts generally need instant gratification. They have a very low threshold for delaying gratification, and it's much easier to manipulate a young boy into having sex than it is to manipulate another man." He adds that homosexual pedophilia is influenced by other factors as well.
"There's a distinct quality about male homosexuality that gay men tend to be attracted to young, good-looking guys. Another part of pedophilia's appeal is the power the pedophile feels in manipulating the boy. It's a combination of things."
amazing how this less than 3% is able to set the agenda for the other 93% or so (assuming 4% lesbians).
That needs to be said out loud and unabashedly.
Let me guess... the Family Research Council is widely regarded in scientific circles as a paragon of objective research, right? No agenda there, no sir....
Kinsey was an idiot. He claimed 10% of the population are gay.
Spell it L*A*W*Y*E*R.
Homosexuality, in many of its aspects, is indistinguishable from same-sex pedophilia. The only factor in which these behaviors show significant difference is in the power aspect of the relationship, which almost always lies with the physically stronger of the individuals involved. Adults are for most part physically much stronger than children of adolescent or pre-adolescent development.
Any male molestor who molests boys is a homosexual, one and the same.
What is also amazing is that anyone would be surprised that someone who engages in what is (IMO) aberrant sexual behavior (Homosexuality) just might be predisposed to other aberrant sexual behavior (Pedophilia). Wouldn't/Doesn't surprise me.
Too few people care. It's shocking to say, but too few people care. Guard your children.
Who'da thunk it ? bump
This study will see the light of day......in Antartica
Didn't you read the "mainstream" reports on the priest abuse? No one could admit CLEAR examples of gay pedophilia were real. They have the gall to claim that a man who rapes a boy is still heterosexual.
2002 article, wonder why there hasn't been more discussion of this study results?
Iffin ya cain't breed, ya gotta recruit...
If a priest abuses young boys, that's a homosexual act, and we have to recognize it as such if we want to help him."
A major proportion of priest sexual offenses have been perpetrated on older teenage boys, not pubescent or prepubertal boys. Plain homosexual behavior.
Even more evidence to support the Boy Scouts' policy on Scoutmasters.
It also has bearing on adoption.
And that is why it will be ignored and derided.
Well, what a surprise!
