Skip to comments.Why are we surprised with the push for ‘pedophile rights’?

August 31, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Many Americans have been shocked by reports about a recent pro-pedophilia conference in Baltimore in which psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, representing institutions like Harvard and Johns Hopkins, sought to present pedophilia in a sympathetic and even positive light. But why should this surprise us?
Academic articles in scholarly journals have been presenting pedophilia in a sympathetic light for years, and, as Matthew Cullinan Hoffman noted, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) released a report in 1998 claiming that the negative potential of adult sex with children was overstated and that the vast majority of both men and women reported no negative sexual effects from their child sexual abuse experiences. It even claimed that large numbers of the victims reported that their experiences were positive, and suggested that the phrase child sex abuse be replaced with adult-child sex. Others have coined the more disgusting term intergenerational intimacy.
The APAs report was so disturbing that it drew an official rebuke from Congress, yet the pro-pedophile (or, pro-pederast) push continues. In fact, some psychiatric leaders, like Dr. Richard Green, who were instrumental in removing homosexuality from the APAs list of mental disorders in 1973, have been fighting to remove pedophilia as well.

Well, the same could be said of rapists, serial killers and other perverts.
They will couch it in terms of the right of the child to decide. We sane people know that children do not have the capacity to make these decisions, especially if they were raised (groomed) as sex objects from the beginning by pervert parents (see “social liberal” or extreme libertarian movements).
having sex with your own child is a part of this
The people that are pushing for the acceptance of pedophiles need to have their computers searched and their head examined.
The line about not classifying it as a mental disorder because they aren’t “bothered” by it. Just wow! Don’t know many psychopaths that are bothered by their actions either.
Isn’t that redundant?
Sadly many in the Republican party were willing to turn a blind eye to that simply because they liked his positions on other things. Rick Perry comes to mind as one of Rudy's ardent supporters in the 2008 campaign.
The state boards should decertify any "mental health professional" who believes pedophilia is normal.
Are you referring to the Mormon offshoot groups where men have four child wives and have sex with underage girls against their consent?
Nope. That is bad enough. I am talking about people who believe in raising their own kids for sex. Disgusting right? They brainwash the kids from birth and say its all the kids choice in the matter.
Well, this is because the Supreme Court does not respect the Constitution, and through its lack of action, has given the federal government the power to impose a homosexual agenda on society. If power was given back to the states, states could better regulate the activity of pedophiles that corrupt children. Eye on the prize.
Pedophiles who hurt children should be executed. Those who advocate repealing age of consent laws are insane. My state has an age of consent of 17. I am fine with that. Some states have it at 16. It should never go below 16. Individuals below the age of 16 are still children, even if they no longer physically resemble children.
They call themselves “libertarian” and they argue that children have just as much to sex as anyone else and that if its their “choice” to have sex with an adult then no one’s rights have been violated.
I also found 2 defunct (inactive) “live journals” that advocated this type of lifestyle. They ask and asnwer questions such as “when should I stop sleeping nude or bathing with my child” and their answer is “when one of you becomes uncomfortable”. I guess that depends on how well you have groomed and desensitized the child, right?
The second one never got off the ground but it was much more blatant than the first one.
That site was still born but it lists their manifesto with stuff like:
*oppose laws against consensual sex acts, including age of consent laws, and laws against homosexual sex, consensual bestiality, and prostitution
*oppose the fanatical witch hunt that is directed against sex offenders and pedophiles
So these freaks do exist out there.
BTW, does anyone know where to find throwaway passwords to websites??
The age of consent should be 18 if the other person is also an adult.
Why? I guess I’d be okay with that, as long as you have an affirmative defense in there for those who are less than 3 years older than the minor. I don’t want to lock an 18 year old up for having sex with a 15 or 16 year old. You’d be locking half the kids in the country up if you did that. I would definitely want to lock a 25 or 30 year old up for having sex with a 17 year old if the age of consent is 18, however. Let’s also examine the enormous double standard between male rapists and female victims vs. female rapists and male victims. When female teachers abuse their power and have sex with their middle schoolers, I always see comments on news websites saying how the male student was so lucky to have sex with his teacher. I’m sorry, but I think that is disgusting. They should be executed, just like the adult males who have sex with middle schoolers. Agreed?
I am NOT surprised.
I have been saying this would happen sooner than later,with the push(shove?) of faggy behavior as NORMAL.
I do believe in slippery slopes.
I’m not surprised at all: I grew up in Southern California in the 1970s. What has surprised me is how much longer it has taken to accomplish this goal, as opposed the normalization of pornography and homosexuality.
Is there anyone here who is surprised?
