  • Today Homosexuality, Tomorrow Pedophilia

    Clash Daily ^ | 8-11-12 | Andres Ortiz
    In 1974, the American Psychiatric Association revoked its prior judgment of homosexuality as a mental illness. This was after a protest against the association four years earlier in today’s cauldron of repulsiveness, San Francisco. Of course, the APA’s decision would set the stage for most of the gay agenda’s winnings in decades to come: no new evidence, no facts, just a bunch of gays getting their panties in a bunch and annoying people into submission. Then there’s AIDS, which in the 80′s used to be called GRID (gay related immune deficiency), gay cancer, and gay plague. Fast forward to present...

    A Columbia political science professor has been charged with having a sexual relationship with his 24-year-old daughter, the Columbia Daily Spectator reports. David Epstein, 46, was charged Thursday with one count of third-degree incest. Police told the Spectator that the relationship appeared consensual. Epstein is currently on administrative leave. According to the New York Daily News, Epstein and the woman had a three-year sexual relationship and often exchanged "twisted text messages." The Spectator reports that Epstein is married to another Columbia political science professor, Sharyn O'Halloran, though a recent update to his Facebook page says he is single. The couple...

    San Antonio City Council will be asked today to create what are called prostitution free corridors to crack down on the activity in areas where prostitutes are known to frequent. Southeast side Councilwoman Jennifer Ramos says the proposal, which will be floated before the councils Governance Committee, would designate areas where police and law enforcement will focus on rooting out prostitution. I want to see if there is a similar way we could attack prostitution, similar to the way we have attacked gang activity in certain parts of town, Ramos said.

But many in the southeast Alaska community of Klawock, population 800, weren't laughing last April after a 26-year-old registered sex offender was accused of molesting a local family's pet dog.

Although Juan Estrada-Espinoza's relationship with his girlfriend was consensual, the crime he committed under state law - unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor at least three years younger than he was - is considered sexual abuse of a minor under federal law and is grounds for mandatory deportation, said the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals...

    The legal age of consent should be lowered from 16 to 14 for young people who are less than two years apart in age, according to an academic. Dr Matthew Waites, a lecturer in sociology at Glasgow University, said criminalising all consensual sexual activity up to 16 was not appropriate. His comments will be controversial given Britain's high levels of under-age pregnancy and because they follow a damning UN study which showed Britain was the worst place in the developed world to be a child, partly because of early sexual intercourse rates and high teenage pregnancies.

In a March 17 broadcast of the Rocky Mountain PBS program "Colorado State of Mind," Rowland said homosexuality is an alternative lifestyle, adding, "For some people, the alternative lifestyle is bestiality. Do we allow a man to marry a sheep?" Democrat Bill Ritter's campaign called the remarks "insensitive, close-minded, derogatory and crude" and demanded an apology.

Robin Lynn Winkis, who taught and coached at Central York High School for five years, was immediately taken into custody Monday. York County Judge Stephen Linebaugh rejected Winkis' request for probation, saying she betrayed the school, parents, her students, the community and "every person who entered the teaching profession."

    Virginia Court Strikes Down Law Against Sex By Singles POSTED: 4:20 pm EST January 14, 2005 RICHMOND, Va. -- The Virginia Supreme Court on Friday struck down an archaic and rarely enforced state law prohibiting sex between unmarried people. The unanimous ruling strongly suggests that a separate anti-sodomy law in Virginia also is unconstitutional, although that statute is not directly affected. The justices based their ruling on a U.S. Supreme Court decision voiding an anti-sodomy law in Texas. "This case directly affects only the fornication law but makes it absolutely clear how the court would rule were the sodomy law...
  • San Antonio Strippers to Wear Permits

    SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- The City Council on Friday approved an ordinance requiring strippers to wear their permits while they are on stage. City Councilman Chip Haass pushed the measure, adopted unanimously by the 11-member council, as a way to make it easier for police to identify dancers. But Jim Deegear, a lawyer for several strip clubs in the city, said it would put strippers in danger by making it easier for an obsessed customer to find out a dancer's real name and where she lives. He said the measure is part of an effort to drive strip clubs out...

    Today, forty years after the dawn of the sexual revolution, most realize that the notion of free love is false. AIDS is wiping out half a continent; abortions take more than a million lives a year, and countless STDs negatively impact the health our sex-crazed culture. Out-of-wedlock pregnancies make it much more likely teenage mothers will spend their lives in poverty. Given these social ills, promoting abstinence as an alternative for our young adults seems logical to most people. Inexplicably, the minority staff of the US House Committee on Government Reform released an inaccurate and biased study last week attacking...

Richard Yuill said his research, based on interviews with paedophiles and their victims, "challenged the assumption" that sexual relations between adults and under-16s were inherently abusive. "The conclusions are that in such relationships I think you've got the good, the bad and the ugly, and that's where I stand on that," he said in the Times Higher Education Supplement.

    Never make judgments. Thats what scientist Alfred Kinsey tells his research assistant very early in the new film about his life. Kinsey, as you know, was all about nonjudgmentalism. Throughout his career researching the sexual habits of Americans, his goal was to free society from the constraints of what the movie calls morality disguised as fact. And like its subject, the film attempts to be nonjudgmentalor, at least, thats the ploy. Three scenes exemplify the supposed nonjudgmentalism. In the first, Kinsey tells his wife, nicknamed Mac, that hes had sex with one of his male researchers. Though shes devastated, he...

But in northeastern Kentucky, parents and students have defied the Ashland-Boyd County school district's "mandatory anti-harassment workshops," part of an agreement with the American Civil Liberties Union to allow the Gay-Straight Alliances student group to meet in school buildings. Hundreds of students opted out of the tolerance training video, and another 324 students did not show up for school the day it was shown. The ACLU has...

One of my beliefs is that a person should be free to do want they want so long as they do not inhibit another person's freedom. This is a good rule of thumb, but it does mean some people are going to say or do things I would not personally do or do not personally agree with. A popular issue today is gay marriage.

    Fox Searchlight's first-run feature film on the controversial "father of the sexual revolution" opens in select "blue state" theaters today to the protests of traditional-family defenders who regard the late Indiana University professor Alfred Kinsey as a fradulent scientist who, more than anyone else, bears responsibility for bringing acceptance of promiscuity into the mainstream. Liam Neeson in "Kinsey" (Courtesy Fox Searchlight) On the latter point, the star of "Kinsey: Let's Talk about Sex" agrees. "Kinsey did release the genie from the bottle -- and you can't put the genie back in the bottle," Liam Neeson told Variety magazine. The film...

    More than one in four sexual assaults occur after a woman has been drugged by her assailant, according to new Canadian research. The study, published in the Canadian Journal of Public Health, shows that the incidence of so-called ''date-rape drugging'' has increased dramatically in the past decade. It also reveals that the vast majority of those who are drugged, then raped, are teenagers aged 15 to 19. The study, conducted by a team led by Margaret McGregor of the Department of Family Practice at the University of British Columbia, is believed to be the first to measure the extent of...

    At the polling booth this year, Berkeley residents will have a unique voting choice: Yes or no to the decriminalization of prostitution. Decriminalization means the repeal of measures that outlaw prostitution, soliciting, pimping, pandering, and brothels. Although the vote will take place only in the city of Berkeley, the decriminalization campaign's ultimate goal is the repeal of California state laws on prostitution and related offenses.** Decriminalization is a more extreme measure than legalization. Legalization would mean the regulation of prostitution with laws regarding where, when, and how prostitution could take place. Decriminalization eliminates all laws and prohibits the state and...

    DALLAS - The arrest of a 12-year-old boy on charges that he molested a 4-year-old girl at a fast-food restaurant playground may point to a growing problem of sexually aggressive children, child-abuse experts say. The boy was arrested Wednesday in suburban Houston on charges of indecency with a child and aggravated sexual assault. Police would not discuss in detail what happened to the girl, other than to say her mother said she'd been touched inappropriately. The arrest came a week after the Dallas Independent School District expelled two first-grade boys after one performed a sex act on another during class....

    Last Sunday, I picked up a copy of Boston Magazine while sitting in the green room at the Fox News studios in Watertown, Mass. Leafing through the publication, I came across an article titled "Confessions of an Ivy League Callgirl," written by Jeannette Angell, a university lecturer with a master's degree from Yale. The fact that she was a Yalie caught my eye -- as a Harvard Law student, I've already adopted our communal animosities -- and so I read the piece. Apparently, Angell began trading sex for cash after receiving her doctorate in social anthropology. But what was shocking...
  • Hookers are using the Internet to keep tabs on undercover cops

    CLAYTON, Mo. -- Hookers are using the Internet to keep tabs on undercover cops. Police departments have used computers for years, but now the oldest profession is going high-tech. St. Louis County vice-squad commander Rick Battelle said he was shocked to find his cell-phone number listed on a hookers-only Web site. Undercover police use mobile phones to set up sting operations. But some of those phone numbers were listed in the database. The hookers' computer files also included the names used by undercover officers and details about their unmarked cars. St. Louis area officers discovered the hookers' Internet database on...

    Strippers and pole dancers should be banned from performing in stretch limousines, according to a British report. Councillors from the mountainous Welsh county of Gwynedd said many limousine hire companies were providing the erotic dancers as entertainment for clients, but in-car striptease was an "inappropriate" activity. "Lately, stretch limousines have been used more and more," said the report, released on Tuesday. "Some operators are providing entertainment to clients within the vehicle which may involve inappropriate activities such as lap dancing, giving rise to concerns about indecency." The new proposals recommend a blanket ban on striptease, lap dancing, pole dancing and...
