Skip to comments.Group of psychiatrists wants to redefine pedophilia to promote tolerance
Posted on 08/24/2011 6:00:00 PM PDT by chessplayer
When I wrote about an objectionable spread of photographs in Paris Vogue a spread that featured 10-year-old fashion model Thylane Blondeau styled in provocative ways I fretted that such a magazine feature might, in some way, normalize the concept of sexual attraction to minors:
"Its often said, but bears repeating, that the TV, magazine and advertising images we absorb train our minds as to what is considered attractive and, yes, specifically sexually attractive in our culture. So, what does a magazine feature like this say? That its OK, even encouraged, to look at a child in a sexual way."
Last week, the group hosted a scientific symposium to discuss a proposed new definition of pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association. Presenters expressed a wide range of views but the thrust of the B4U-Act movement appears to be, ultimately, to decriminalize pedophilia.
since day one, the biggest lobby group is pedophilia crowd in DC
Basic rule of thumb: People who want kids to have sex are generally those that want to have sex with kids.
Not surprised. That how the homosexual liberation movement began. Hollywierd is filled with pedophiles and they give a lot of money to DemocRats.
This is a great time for states to opt out of the APA, and stand up their own state-wide DSMs.
Is that the same group which redefined homosexuality a few years ago?
It used to be a disorder now it is not. Amazing how much this nation has changed, or been led to change.
“since day one, the biggest lobby group is pedophilia crowd in DC”
The biggest pedophilia crowd is in Hollywood.
Should be a plank in the Democratic party platform circa 2016, if it’s not already.
No. They just want to make it legal to have sex with your boys. It is the whole reason for the homosexual movement since the Communist Hays founded it.
He was sodomized as a boy and loved it. He and the radical homosexuals want to have free access to boys—like in Ancient Rome—it is what their sick literature is soaked in-—man/boy “love”.
Once these sick, child molesting bastards are allowed to “openly serve” in the military alongside the homosexuals, we will be asked to be more “tolerant” of murderers and rapists for their “alternative lifestyle” choice. America! You are one sick puppy for allowing this crap to happen! I think it’s time to put the “smart phones” away and try to focus on life.
Actually, the whole man/boy love thing is more associated with ancient Greece than Rome.
While the Romans imitated the Greeks in this regard, as in just about everything else, it never became a truly central focus of their culture as in Greece.
It’s also only fair to point out the boys in question are pubescent/adolescent, not five year olds. Doesn’t make it much less objectionable, but in the interests of factual correctness...
As Ms. Coulter often says, “You can be so open-minded that your brains fall out”.
“It`s coming. Pedophilia will just be considered another lifestyle choice, and anyone opposed to it will be labeled a pedophobe.”
Beyond that, any shrink trying to help a child-lover overcome his addiction will be at risk of losing his license...since, after all, pedophilia will be considered ‘normal’, so treating it would be a breach of conduct.
The world gets sicker every day.
This is going to come down to shoot, shovel, and shut up, or worse. There’ll be 50 million Henry Bowmans out there looking to clean up the problem.
I meant Ancient Greece but Rome was similar. Read Pink Swastika for a real eye opener. Their book has been disparaged and homosexuals have targeted the authors and tried to discredit the book for decades....even Wikipedia—the pedophile promoter—lies about the book.
I read it. It is well researched and all true. I read other books on WWII and the Hidden Hitler and many others—they all point to this homosexual movement—not unlike what Kissinger frequents at the Bohemian Grove—which wants to have free access to sex with boys.
They had to kill Christianity first in America—the Cultural Marxists who are behind it started with Kinsey , Hefner, The Beats (homosexuals) to destroy and marginalize Christianity—take down the Churches—destroy the family (no fault divorce) , remove mother’s from the home so children would be left vulnerable to strangers and easily indoctrinated.....it is all planned.
Read Marcuse—he talks about Polymorphous society—his utopia—no restrictions on sex....like the Brave New World, but with men and boys cavorting in the parks. His vision given in the 60’s. They are very evil, vile people who think it is good to have sex with children.
Okay.....I will start with biased and incompetent to round out the changes.
That won’t happen, for obvious economic reasons. But state APA’s can repudiate the national APA if and when it acts in support of this pervert lobby.
Psychiatry has been added to my list of b.s. degrees - as in Bull Obama degrees.
It’s obvious to the less than casual observer that the requirements for obtaining a degree in that field are equal to those for Obama to get a law degree from Harvard.
Sorry, folks, but if it ain’t a degree in the basic sciences or engineering, it’s worth just about as much as a Obamaloon speech.
Blame your local (low IQ, naturrally) liberal professor.
Ok, OK, misspelled “naturally”.
Wanna make somethin’ of it??
Psychiatry itself attracts a lot of freaks. 90% of psychiatrists I have met are seriously strange themselves. Perhaps they entered the field to tangle with the snakes in their own heads.
Sorry if I offend, I’m sure those of you in the field reading this are in the other 10%
If pedophilia is not a crime, being in this country illegally is not a crime, murdering your children is not a crime, using illegal drugs is not a crime, let’s decriminalize everything that way the prisons will be empty and the US will be able to get out of debt.
Notice my lower post....I corrected it to Greece, although pederasty was common in all cultures and it was Judeo/Christian ethics which made it “sin” and thus evil. Middle East never did, nor did the East and Africa unless influenced by the Western culture—they still practice pederasty and homosexuality and pederasty in the Middle East—although they would never dignify it with “marriage”—even they know how utterly stupid.
...Spartans started with boys around 7. Kind of the age the Afghanis start with—maybe 8.....NAMBLA’s saying, if not by eight, then it is too late.
Pederasty of course was dominate and the scandal was when these young men turned to other young men and dumped the old ones.
You have a point - maybe ‘rapists’ were born that way ... are we now ‘rapeaphobes’ too?
Wow! Words fail me. How in the freakin’ world can any doctor suggest sexually abusing children will promote ‘’tolerance’’? Forget the “Lolita’’ fantasy’’, children are simply not physically and emotionally equipped to participate in or understand this most adult and complex experience. These doctors should be strung up.
Use them all for sword practice and put their heads on pointed sticks.
Pedophilia was more common in ancient Greece but it was not widely approved of even there. There are jokes in some plays making fun of the guys who do it.
Alcibiades makes it plain that Socrates never made any advances toward him even tho they often slept in the same bed.
Aristophanes really hits them hard in some of his plays.
It probably exists but I have never read anything from ancient Greece approving of it.
I knew this was coming.
I have yet to read Ann Hendershotts “The Politics Of Deviance”,it has been on my reading list for years.
A truly sad day for America and our children.
We should hang them in a month ...they would think twice...
“Take pedophilia out of DSM-V. It’s for the children.”
The Bacha Bazi or the dancing boys of Afghanistan. I saw the PBS documentary and it made me sick.
This is Madness! I can take a lot but I can’t stands no more! You give these people an inch and they think their a ruler. The line must be drawn someplace—OK for Gays marriage, OK for Polygamy—BUT NO, Never, nohow, to this pedophilia thing. Have we slipped this far? Have we fallen this far out of the loop? We got to get back on track and put perverts in their place.
My personal opinion is that there are relatively few pedophiles out there compared to the actual high number of predatory queers. This is nothing more than trying to acquire cover using language (i.e., challenged versus crippled, challenged versus idiot, etc). 99% of the priests charged with molesting children were predatory queers attacking little boys. They are trying to use the mantel of pedophile to mislead and fool the general public with a scientific distraction.
This is the reason for the push for same sex "marriage" and homosexuals serving in the military.
If I had a nickle for each time that I have read or heard, "Their homosexual marriage is no threat to my hetrosexual marriage", my money problems would be over. But, in a sense, they are correct, because two likes cannot be joined in holy matrimony.But once it becomes socially acceptable, the participants can be threats ti your children or grandchildren.
If you want a good indication of the usefulness of psychiatrists, look at their children. These offspring are, by far, some of the most neurotic and dysfunctional people on earth.
Attitudes towards homosexuality and what we would call (inaccurately) pedophilia in ancient Greece are complex and probably poorly understood today. They certainly don’t fit at all into the “homosexuality” or “pedophilia” of today. They also almost certainly varied over time and by city.
The most telling feature, to me, is the Greek ideal of beauty. Today, if you walk down the rack in a magazine stand, the covers are almost entirely of women, and young women meeting a particular standard. They outnumber men on the covers by something like 10:1. Even, perhaps especially, on women’s magazines. That’s because this is our society’s ideal of beauty. The models are often anonymous, presented not as individual humans, but as a symbol of the ideal.
If the Greeks had a newstand, the covers would have been something like 15:1 of boys or young men, not of women. That was their ideal of beauty.
Oddly enough, the common perception among American conservatives that Greece deteriorated and fell because of their practice of homosexuality appears to unfortunately be backwards. The period when pederasty was most dominant appears to correlate quite closely to the military and cultural pinnacle of classical Greece.
During Hellenistic times, when tyrants rather than democrats ruled, women as an ideal of beauty and sexuality made a bit comeback.
During the height of Greek civilization, Pericles, the Parthenon and all that, pederasty seems to have been in some ways the central institution of the society. AFAIK, it has never achieved anything like the same status in any other society.
Pretty good and balanced wiki article.
