Pedophilia the next 'sexual-rights' revolution? (...LGBT argument to 'minor-attracted persons')
WND ^ | January 02, 2014 | Jerome R. Corsi

Posted on 01/03/2014 9:35:53 AM PST by Perseverando

NEW YORK – The underlying assumption that has led to the increasing legitimization of same-sex marriage is now fueling a growing effort in academic circles to mainstream pedophilia.

Once considered taboo, psychologists are beginning to walk down the same path LGBT activists established more than 50 years ago, insisting that pedophilia is an inborn “sexual orientation,” not a learned sexual behavior.

If people are born with a sexual attraction to minors, the argument goes, their “orientation” should be accepted as normative and not stigmatized.

James Cantor, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist in the Law and Mental Health Program at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, a large mental health and teaching hospital in Canada and an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto, is regarded internationally as a leading “sexologist” studying pedophilia.

Cantor says his research concludes pedophiles share distinct characteristics of “brain wiring.” He contends some 1 to 5 percent of all men are predisposed to be primarily sexually attracted to children.

In a New York Times report on Cantor’s work Dec. 22, reporter Laura Kane noted pedophilia “has been widely viewed as a psychological disorder triggered by early childhood trauma.”

However, many experts now, she wrote, “see it as a biologically rooted condition that does not change – like a sexual orientation – thanks largely to a decade of research by Dr. James Cantor at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.”

Last fall, the American Psychological Association caused an uproar when the latest edition of its vaunted Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders called pedophilia a “sexual orientation.”

After inquiries from news organizations, the APA issued a “correction” stating “sexual orientation” is not a term “used in the diagnostic criteria

Okay, I think one of the worst turn of events, in our culture, is to always go with what the adult wants, what the adult needs. And, it really doesn't matter who gets hurt in the end.

We are talking about legalizing an act which seriously harms a child and affects their future lives in ways we cannot imagine. But, hey, the pervert thinks this is perfectly normal, so who are we to judge?

A child cannot give consent. Period. So we are talking, rape. Let's be clear about that. We are talking about legalizing child rape because some gay pedophile believes he is just "made that way" and it is his "orientation". So, do we stop prosecuting drunk drivers who kill people? They are just made that way. It is their "orientation" to be attracted to alcohol. And, don't say it's not the same thing. By sexually abusing a child, you have killed that child's innocence and destroyed their life.

A Self-Styled ‘Gay Revolutionary’ Offers a Challenge to Straight America:

“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, ...wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us. All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our holy gods are handsome young men. ...We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed...”

I knew this was coming for a long time since they started pushing this whole LGBT rights agenda. There are quite a bit of them that have feelings of pedophelia for pleasure.

Sickening is an understatement for what these people are.

Barber said a consensus belief by both speakers and pedophiles in attendance was that, because it vilifies “minor-attracted persons,” pedophilia should be removed as a mental disorder from the APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders in the same manner homosexuality was removed in 1973.

Soon, the term "minor-attracted persons" will be promoted as the proper term to describe these sick bastards, while anyone using the word "pedophile" will be accused of using "hate speech."

Where are the studies showing that necrophilia is an inborn “sexual orientation.” If it is an inborn sexual orientation then it is perfectly normal behavior. It is sad that I feel it is necessary to point out that I am being sarcastic. We have come so far.

When a species that is genetically predisposed to protect it’s young fails to do so, it is headed toward extinction. I honestly don’t know where this leads. Kids are our future. Killing them and raping them says very bad things for the human race, not just for the adults who are doing it, but for the adults who stand by and let it happen.

Homos need to recruit young boys in order to continue their “lifestyle” since they cannot biologically reproduce. If their recruits are too young they can get in trouble with the law. This is the impetus behind all of this.

Child molesters make more child molesters. To break the chain the molesters need to be killed.

We have already had polygamy and we’ve tacitly tolerated it. The thing is that it’s acceptable for men to have mistresses and for men to have ‘long term affairs’ so long as they don’t commit to these women and the children that might occur from these relationships. But if the man commits and calls his mistress or his fling another ‘wife’, oh, then that’s bad.

We’ve also long had polygamy in the form of a man having a wife and family, he gets divorced and marries another woman and starts another family, and so on. That’s a form of socially acceptable polygamy.

And let’s not forget Hugh Hefner and his three live-in women or Charlie Sheen and his two live-in women. That’s also polygamy.

Finally, there’s the legion of urban black males (I’m loathe to call them ‘men’) who consider it a point of pride to have a harem of women with whom they have lots of babies who are all supported at taxpayer expense.

That’s all polygamy.

I say this not to support polygamy but to point out that what you’re concerned about has already been in existence right in front of you for decades.

There is a lot of "parenting" (and ALL that means) not going on these days. Wild animals do a better job of protecting their young than many humans who have offspring. The act of having kids and truly parenting them are not the same thing.

On August 17, 2011 a symposium sponsored by an association of mental health professionals called B4U-ACT took place in Baltimore, Md. The official brochure declared:

“This day long symposium will facilitate the exchange of ideas among researchers, scholars, mental health practitioners, and minor-attracted persons who have an interest in critical issues surrounding the entry for pedophilia in the Diagnostic Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association.”

In plain English, this is a symposium whose goal is to facilitate the removal of Pedophilia from the American Psychiatric Societies official list of Mental Disorders (DSM). B4U-ACT has already coined a bland, innocuous, and inoffensive term to make the idea of child-sex more palatable: “minor-attracted persons.” This phrase sounds almost pleasant, distinctly unlike those nasty and soon-to-be-politically-incorrect words like “pedophile” and “child molester.” (How does pedophobic grab you?) Not surprisingly, the featured speaker is Dr. Fred Berlin of Johns Hopkins University, a colleague of Dr. John Money. Child advocate, Dr. Judith Reisman disclosed that the conference is part of a strategy to condition people into accepting pedophiles: “The first thing they do is to get the public to divest from thinking of what the offender does criminally, to thinking of his emotional state…to empathize and sympathize…You don’t change the nation in one fell swoop, you have to change it by conditioning.”

Although first published nearly two decades ago, a special issue of The Journal of Homosexuality called “Male Intergenerational Intimacy” edited by three prestigious scholars (all PhD’s) gives us a taste of what is to come:

“In contemporary Western society, intimate sexual relations between men and boys are considered as immoral…regardless of the emotional contexts in which they occur [not according to Joel Marks and Peter Singer!]…the current social climate makes it rather difficult to look at these relationships in an objective way…man-boy relationships are not uncommon. As in homosexuality, man-boy sexuality occurs and not seldom in a context in which both partners consent…in these relationships a diversity of feelings are or can be expressed: affection, attachment, desire, domination and submission…men who feel attracted to boys have to legitimize their feelings toward themselves as well as towards society.”

All we are missing now is a scholarly “scientific” study which informs us that we have finally isolated a “man-child attraction” gene! An old German expression comes to mind: “So fangt es immer an”- “It always starts in the same way.” What also comes to mind are the lyrics of an old protest song from the 60’s: “And you tell me over and over again my friend, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction?”

The underlying assumption that has led to the increasing legitimization of same-sex marriage is now fueling a growing effort in academic circles to mainstream pedophilia.

Academic circles have never mainstreamed anything, and no one pays attention to what psychology professors have to say, including their students. Pedophilia completely fails the "consenting adults" test for those looking into legalisms and on a practical note, most parents would kill any pedophile who attempts to molest their children. There have been cultures which have condoned this vile criminal behavior (ancient Greece, current-day Afghanistan/Pashtun) but it simply isn't a realistic concern in the Western world today.

If you want to look for a realistic campaign to normalize an aberrant social practice, look to polygamy and polyandry. It passes the "consenting adults" test and Hollywood has already started portraying the concept in a sympathetic way via the HBO show "Big Love".

So I have found over the years that I was born with an aversion to work. Work of any type seem to make me tired and that condition really impacts my enjoyment of Life, thus reducing my Happiness. Since the Constitution assures me that Happiness is one of those things that I will be unfettered in my pursuit of, would it be okay with James Cantor, Ph.D. if I was to show up at his place and simply take what I need to be Happy, and coincidentally, make the cable, electric, and gas company Happy too. (Those folks seem to not be too Happy lately.)

Now I'm not unfeeling toward Dr. Cantor's attitude about all this, but he tells me that underage folks should just suck it up when bothered by some pedo whether they are looking for such attention or not. Shouldn't his attitude be the same toward my Happiness.

Just suck it up, Doc.
