The Washington Post, a liberal publication, posted an op-ed piece on Friday titled, ‘The unintended consequences of laws addressing sex between teachers and students.’ Referencing the case of the middle-aged Montana high school teacher Stacey Dean Rambold who raped a 14-year old who later killed herself, the author said, ‘our legal and moral codes failing us, our society needs to have an uncensored dialogue about the reality of sex in schools.’
We really need a conversation about this? That’s what this is about?
The author says that our moral codes are failing us and then goes on to say, ‘I don’t believe that all sexual conduct between underage students and teachers should necessarily be classified as rape, and I believe that absent extenuating circumstances, consensual sexual activity between teachers and students should not be criminalized.’
If this isn’t a crime against children, then I don’t know what is.
She thinks that people are responding with ‘hysteria.’ She wants ‘less intensity’ when dealing with pedophiles convicted of statutory rape.
I don’t think it’s hysteria to see the abomination of pedophilia. A case in Texas of a young father who beat his 5-year old child’s rapist to death was decided today. He will not be tried. I believe this is justice. He is lucky the crime occurred in Texas and not in a liberal state where the sympathies tend to go towards the criminals instead of the victims. Justice prevailed in this case.
Only last week, the Atlantic posted an article by David Goldberg, titled, ‘I Pedophile.’ The perverse Mr. Goldberg begins by attempting to garner sympathy for the loss of his job and reputation after being caught obsessively trolling the Internet for naked little boys. He never hurt a child, he claims, he only trolled the Internet for sexual photos of little boys.
By doing so, he supported the sex trade but that thought was too nuanced for him.
He then says this:
‘I am convinced I will always be without an answer is why I am a pedophile. It is the equivalent of trying to determine why someone is heterosexual or gay. We don’t choose our sexual orientations. If we could, believe me, no one would choose mine.’
He normalizes pedophilia here and puts himself on the same level as homosexuals.
He was arrested in Canada for merely looking at naked boys and was grateful it wasn’t in the US where he’d ‘have served many years with hardened criminals.’
He is a hardened criminal!
He is trying to make a case for lessening penalties for people who support criminals who abuse little children. He also refers to his perversion as the ‘cross-generational lifestyle.’
‘I am not advocating the cross-generational lifestyle. In fact, there is never an instance when an adult should engage in sexual behavior with a child. But until we as a society learn that help for those who view child pornography is a far better alternative to incarceration, we are doomed to see the continued proliferation of this problem.’
He wants therapy instead of incarceration for blatantly criminal behavior. He wants to keep perusing child pornography.
The Atlantic posted another article titled, ‘What can be done about pedophilia?’ in which the author proclaims that pedophilia is a sexual orientation that cannot be changed and should not be confused with molestation. The author says we are making pedophiles desperate and causing them to do desperate things.
It’s not their fault, it’s ours I suppose.
CNN recently featured a story by James Cantor, a homosexual psychologist and scientist at the Sexual Behaviors Clinic of the Center for Addiction and Mental Health who serves as associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto.
“It appears that one can be born with a brain predisposed to experience sexual arousal in response to children,” he wrote in his CNN piece.
It’s not their fault, it’s normal. Their brain made them do it.
In 2011, the Greeley Gazette quoted a University of Hawaii professor, Milton Diamond, as saying that child pornography could be beneficial to society because, “Potential sex offenders use child pornography as a substitute for sex against children.”
Diamond is a distinguished lecturer for the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality which supports child sex. They list on their website, ‘basic sexual rights’ that includes ‘the right to engage in sexual acts or activities of any kind whatsoever, providing they do not involve nonconsensual acts, violence, constraint, coercion or fraud.’ Another right is to, ‘be free of persecution, condemnation, discrimination, or societal intervention in private sexual behavior’ and ‘the freedom of any sexual thought, fantasy or desire.’ The organization also says that no one should be ‘disadvantaged because of age.’
In 1998 The American Psychological Association issued a report 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 childhood sexual abuse experiences.’ There is a movement now to change the DSM to accept pedophilia as normal.
The Christian Post points out that at least one of the books on the Common Core suggested reading list is The Bluest Eye by Tony Morrison. It narrates cases of pedophilia, rape, and incest which the author described as “friendly,” “innocent,” and “tender.” Morrison wanted the reader to feel a participant in the rapes and pedophilia so she doesn’t attempt to moralize. She obviously doesn’t see morals as entering into it.
The eleven-year old black girl who is the heroine of the book is described in this way during a sexual episode with an adult male relative:
‘When she senses some spasm about to grip him, she will make rapid movements with her hips, press her fingernails into his back, suck in her breath, and pretend she is having an orgasm.’
As far back as 2002, a Jewish World Review cited a number of articles making the case for normalizing pedophilia.
Larry Constantine, a Massachusetts family therapist and sex-book writer, said children ‘have the right to express themselves sexually, which means that they may or may not have contact with people older than themselves.”
Wardell Pomeroy, coauthor of the original Kinsey reports, said incest ‘can sometimes be beneficial.’
A Minnesota sociologist included pedophile sex among ‘intimate human relations [that] are important and precious.’
The efforts at bringing pedophilia into the mainstream slowed for a while but they are picking up steam again and will get worse if people do not express their outrage or, worse yet, it they begin to see the false arguments as reasonable. The lower our standards go, the more this type of atrocious behavior will be accepted.
Pedophilia is a serious sexual perversion. Be disgusted. Revile it. Condemn it. It harms children permanently in ways you can’t imagine unless you have experienced it.
