Skip to comments.Child Trauma Expert: Pro-Pedophilia Groups Are ‘Grooming’ Public to Accept Adult-Child Sex

Pedophilia advocacy groups, including the tax-exempt B4U-ACT founded by a convicted sex offender, are trying to groom the public into accepting adult-child sexual relationships, child trauma expert Dr. Joyanna Silberg told CNSNews.com.
There is no legitimate scientific work that could justify the action of an adult with a child in a sexual relationship, because by definition a child cannot consent, said Silberg, executive vice president of the Leadership Council on Child Abuse and Interpersonal Violence.
If you look at their backchannel communications, Silberg continued, they have clearly stated... that the B4U-ACT public persona is to kind of seduce or groom the public into their way of thinking so that they can act. But they dont say that on their public websites.
Silberg, whose organization has debunked studies claiming that sexual relations with adults do not harm children, added that there is zero likelihood of [B4U-ACT] having an impact on the sixth edition of the American Psychological Associations (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder in 1973, and called any comparisons between the two as completely ridiculous.
Former APA president Dr. Paul Fink agreed. Pedophilia is very, very hurtful to children, he told CNSNews.com. But because pro-pedophilia advocates keep hammering away with their point of view, they could still have a very strong effect on the people who are holding back because they know its a crime and its sick.
But Family Research Council (FRC) senior fellow Peter Sprigg says that there is no question that pedophilia advocacy groups are taking a page from the playbook used by homosexual activists in the 1970s in an effort to normalize their sexual preference.
It is actually shocking to realize that there are advocacy groups which actually support what they call, euphemistically, minor-attracted persons or intergenerational sex, Sprigg said.
Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action, agreed, noting that political activism is a tried-and-true tactic of kindred homosexual pressure groups.
Barber, who attended a pro-pedophilia conference in which a sexologist admitted that it was tremendous political pressure that pushed the APA to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder, says that such advocacy efforts are similar factions in the larger sexual anarchy movement Pedophiles are following the same tactics, but are being more subtle about it.
Reform Sex Offender Laws, Inc., an organization with a mission that includes reducing acts of discrimination, hatred, and violence directed at sexual offenders, recently hosted its fifth annual conference in California to address topics such as public registry alternatives; sexual abuse prevention; and effective advocacy and lobbying strategies.
B4U-ACT, a nonprofit organization established in 2003 to support minor-attracted clients, recently volunteered to serve as a research gateway for members of the DSM-V committee that develops and updates APA standards for classifying mental disorders, according to spokesperson Paul Christiano, who is a registered sex offender.
He criticized the studies used by the APA to determine diagnostic criteria because they were conducted on people under the jurisdiction of the criminal justice system, many of whom boasted aggressive offense histories, rather than highlighting private citizens who responsibly manage such attractions.
Christiano, whose personal website features essays arguing for the sexual autonomy" of children that would allow them to "embrace sensual pleasure as a birthright," says his organization is invested in dispelling the vitriol which serves only to prevent minor-attracted people from coming to terms with that challenging aspect of themselves and responsibly integrating it into everyday life."
When CNSNews asked him to explain how pedophiles can integrate their sexual desires toward underage minors into "everyday life," Christiano cited the use of counseling modalities to encourage mindfulness and self-realization.
His group's aim, he says, is to dismantle Marvel Comics-grade representations of the Insatiable Sex Monster and to help pedophiles avoid holding themselves in contempt for privately acknowledged feelings... in many cases at no risk of ever materializing in reckless or impulsive ways.
However, on his website Christiano appeared to contradict his own argument that pedophilia can be controlled, stating that the aroused body is too busy responding to its own pulse to attend to the social order.
In a 2010 letter to the APA provided to CNSNews, Christiano blamed social barriers to openly discussing my sexuality for four suicide attempts, three psychiatric hospitalizations, lifetime classification as a Sexual Predator on the Illinois Sex Offender Registry for Possession of Child Pornography in 2000, five years of court-mandated therapy, and 16 job losses as a direct result of my Registry status.
In the letter, he urged the APA to re-educat[e] the public as to the decreased risk minor-attracted people truly pose to society.
Sprigg was not buying it. B4U-ACT seems more concerned about protecting such individuals from legal consequences than they are about healing their perverse desires, he commented.
Twenty years ago the idea that society would allow gay marriage was considered ridiculous. Nope, never going to happen.
Yes, the Democrat Party is “grooming” another class of “victims” who will be beholden to the Democrats for legalizing their perversion.
Maybe we should organize a movement to “groom” the public that the only appropriate response to an adult’s sexual advance on a child of 14 or younger is the death penalty. If the campaign is relentless enough a critical mass of adults in America may agree. I have a feeling we are closer to that consensus than many would think.
If someone will take this cause on, I would probably donate to it. Think the group could get 501(c)(3) status?
Before you know it, nambla will be petitioning the courts to allow them to marry their 6 year old adopted kid that was sold on the kiddie market out of some third world country. Disgusting is an understatement. “Morals? We don’t need no steenkin’ morals.”
Easy divorce in the 70s
Androgyny in the 80s
Homosexual tv characters/Don’t ask don’t tell in the 90s
Forced celebration of sodomy in the 00s
Child rape in the 10s
NAMBLA has been doing this for years and years.
The Harvey Milk stamp is due out next year. Thereby the government, OBAMA, is saying its OK to abuse children. We sanction it!
You let the camel put his nose into the tent...
They are open about it, and perverts who want to screw minors are open about it even here on Free Republic.
See this thread:
There is no magic about the number 2. If 2 males can marry then so can 6. If 6 males can marry then they can marry 12 year olds.
Marx HATED the nuclear family. That is the foundation of the left in America.
From that point they hijack science and create ‘advocacy studies’ such as the one from Rind, etal to soften up the brain dead masses to accept pedophelia.
After that is accepted it will be beastiality that will be legalized.
Maybe we need to come up with a nice tricky name for our special ammunition to be used on these sick sumbishes.
* I hate to ask “what’s next?” *
My guess, probably whatever they were up to in Sodom and Gomorrah that was to horrible to put into the Bible.
I wouldn't bet on that. I've notice of late that barn yard animals are beginning to look rather nervous every time a Democrat gets near them.
And you think we won’t eventually do human sacrifice and cannibalism too?
Primal decadence, savagery in designer shoes.
When I was in high school nobody knew who was gay. I don't know if they would've gotten beat up, I think everyone was indifferent. No one would've been “proud” about it or made a big deal about it. Now kids have been taught that it's OK and even cool.
They will be taught the same thing in school about this vile topic. They will be shown how tolerant muslims are by forcing children to marry old men not like the Christians who are old fashioned and against this sort of thing...
Dogs and Cats living together, mass hysteria.
