Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals

Yankee Traveler 2011/10/16 11:07:43

Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles
have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a
sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.

of the homosexual lifestyle have long claimed that once it became
acceptable to identify homosexuality as simply an “alternative
lifestyle” or sexual orientation, logically nothing would be off limits.
“Gay” advocates have taken offense at such a position insisting this
would never happen. However, psychiatrists are now beginning to advocate
redefining pedophilia in the same way homosexuality was redefined
several years ago.

In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association
declassified homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. A group of
psychiatrists with B4U-Act recently held a symposium proposing a new
definition of pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of
Mental Health Disorders of the APA.

B4U-Act calls pedophiles
“minor-attracted people.” The organization's website states its purpose
is to, “help mental health professionals learn more about attraction to
minors and to consider the effects of stereotyping, stigma and fear.”

1998 The APA 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.”

Pedophilia has already been granted
protected status by the Federal Government. The Matthew Shephard and
James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act lists “sexual orientation” as
a protected class; however, it does not define the term.

attempted to add an amendment specifying that “pedophilia is not
covered as an orientation;” however, the amendment was defeated by
Democrats. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fl) stated that all alternative sexual
lifestyles should be protected under the law. “This bill addresses our
resolve to end violence based on prejudice and to guarantee that all
Americans, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender,
sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability or all of these
‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’ that were put forward need not live in
fear because of who they are. I urge my colleagues to vote in favor of
this rule.”

The White House praised the bill saying, “At root,
this isn't just about our laws; this is about who we are as a people.
This is about whether we value one another -- whether we embrace our
differences rather than allowing them to become a source of animus.”

this year two psychologists in Canada declared that pedophilia is a
sexual orientation just like homosexuality or heterosexuality.

Gijseghem, psychologist and retired professor of the University of
Montreal, told members of Parliament, "Pedophiles are not simply people
who commit a small offense from time to time but rather are grappling
with what is equivalent to a sexual orientation just like another
individual may be grappling with heterosexuality or even homosexuality."

He went on to say, "True pedophiles have an exclusive preference
for children, which is the same as having a sexual orientation. You
cannot change this person’s sexual orientation. He may, however, remain

When asked if he should be comparing pedophiles to
homosexuals, Van Gijseghem replied, "If, for instance, you were living
in a society where heterosexuality is proscribed or prohibited and you
were told that you had to get therapy to change your sexual orientation,
you would probably say that that is slightly crazy. In other words, you
would not accept that at all. I use this analogy to say that, yes
indeed, pedophiles do not change their sexual orientation.”

Quinsey, professor emeritus of psychology at Queen's University in
Kingston, Ontario, agreed with Van Gijseghem. Quinsey said pedophiles'
sexual interests prefer children and, "There is no evidence that this
sort of preference can be changed through treatment or through anything

In July, 2010 Harvard health Publications said,
“Pedophilia is a sexual orientation and unlikely to change. Treatment
aims to enable someone to resist acting on his sexual urges."

Harvey, of Mission America, said the push for pedophiles to have equal
rights will become more and more common as LGBT groups continue to
assert themselves. “It’s all part of a plan to introduce sex to children
at younger and younger ages; to convince them that normal friendship is
actually a sexual attraction.”

Milton Diamond, a University of
Hawaii professor and director of the Pacific Center for Sex and Society,
stated 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 in San Francisco.
The IASHS openly advocated for the repeal of the Revolutionary war ban
on homosexuals serving in the military.

The IASHS lists, on its
website, a list of "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

Sex offender laws protecting children have been challenged
in several states including California, Georgia and Iowa. Sex offenders
claim the laws prohibiting them from living near schools or parks are
unfair because it penalizes them for life.

    This is exactly one of the things that many of us said in opposition of gay marriage -- that if we grant that "right" to gay couples, other "sexual combinations" would also start demanding their "rights."

    That's the argument we made, and we were told we were crazy. Now it's easy to see that we were on to something.

    Yes, that would surely happen. But, when I finished with the "fix" they could have the freaks back and do with them whatever they wished. They would be "cured" of all their
    dislocated mental processes.
  • La Comment... 2011/10/17 11:19:57
    Yeah, well that's exactly the problem. We are all agreed that its utterly wrong to be a pedo....but what do we do with them? As it stands, we wait for them to do something illegal and then lock them up.....but they have basic human rights and all and until they go molest a child, we can't exactly do anything to them. In fact I guess we don't even that they are pedos until they molest someone.

    You are as hopelessly bound to "political correctness" as the worst of the sociopaths. Give me one reason why I can't "charge or discriminate" against these lunatics? Can I "charge or discriminate" against a murderer, a rapist, a serial killer? Try me, see if I can do it.

    Pedophelia is not a "sexual orientation", but a means of preying upon a child who is too young and defenseless to prevent the assult by a lunatic.

    No child EVER benefitted from being sexually abused. EVER.
    These idiots seem to be the epitome of ivory tower advocates who have no concept of what the impact of their principles might be. I guarantee you that they would not support that for their own children. But then again, like so many of the anti-meat eating stories, this could be a story purchased by such groups for placement in the media as a means of softening resolve in the weakminded.
  • MIGUELbM TruBluT... 2011/10/16 15:21:32
    No, they didn't benefited, what the article says is that the negative effects are nowhere near as bad as it was thought
  • Dixienc MIGUELbM 2011/10/16 17:03:21 (edited)
    And in your mind that makes it all OK?????

    edit: and you may want to reread what one so called expert claims,,,,,,,

    "Milton Diamond, a University of
    Hawaii professor and director of the Pacific Center for Sex and Society,
    stated that child pornography could be beneficial to society because,
    "Potential sex offenders use child pornography as a substitute for sex
    against children."

    Child pornography IS in FACT child sexual abuse and this sicko thinks it IS beneficial to society.
  • TruBluT... Dixienc 2011/10/17 01:36:17
    BTW, where does this idiot researcher think such filth originates? Photographing the abuse of a child documents the reality of abuse and magnifies it.
  • Dixienc TruBluT... 2011/10/17 13:18:36
    That IS what I'm saying Tru.....it was said that the article did not say that it was beneficial to society...I simply showed that it did in fact say that. It's all worthy of punishment by a slow and painful death IMO.
  • TruBluT... MIGUELbM 2011/10/17 01:35:00
    So I guess violence, promiscuity, depression, drug abuse and more are simply acceptable side effects. Nice.
  • TasselLady 2011/10/16 13:50:40 (edited)
    Oh great, so let me get this straight. The pedophiles who are sexually in love with kids feel that they have "rights"???? I DON'T THINK SO. That's a whole different ballgame than someone who is homosexual who is in an adult relationship. Pedophiles are sick human beings. If that pedophile violates a child, then they don't have any rights anymore, and other people deserve to know if someone like this is living next door. Children are supposed to be protected and nurtured, not be objects of sexual affection. I hope the court laughs these people right back into their homes and away from people where they belong. Pretty soon rapists and murderers are going to want to have the same "rights". Don't think so. If this country ever does that then I know we're not America anymore.
  • Charu ∞... TasselLady 2011/10/16 14:27:22

    But the gays do and their actions/love interest were nbot accepted were they? Watch out for Pete and his sheep and Mack and his lawnmower wanting laws to protect and acknowledge them too.....the list and and will go on and on.
  • MIGUELbM TasselLady 2011/10/16 15:25:18
    That's not the point, they have the right to have a sexual preference, however they DON'T have the right to abuse a kid in any way. If murderers and rapist are ever conceded a similar right it will be to protect them for liking the action, not for doing it. If they do commit the action then the government has the right to let people know who they are, but until they do they should be protected.
  • bronx 2011/10/16 13:43:33
    This kind of thinking is what is breaking down our beloved nation. This is why gay marriage should never be legal, it just opens up a can of WORMS for these types to crawl out of. Pedophiles should be put down like the sick dogs they are and nothing more.
  • TasselLady bronx 2011/10/16 13:51:26
    That's right. Pretty soon rapists and murderers will demand the same rights. They don't have anymore rights as far as I'm concerned.

    Yep. There's always a price to pay for going down the wrong path. Gay marriage is one, and if it leads to other wrong paths then we'll pay the price for it. Sad.
  • MIGUELbM TasselLady 2011/10/16 15:29:12
    Whats wrong with gay marriage? its not the wrong path at all, what the article says is that pedophiles are protected for their preference, not their actions, they may like kids, thats not up to us to judge, what we can judge is them hurting kids in any way.
  • TasselLady MIGUELbM 2011/10/16 18:45:59
    Because if you allow one deviance to become law and "protected", then other undesirables are going to want the same thing. For me gay marriage is against God's law because homosexuality is against his law, but that's only my belief. Homosexuals are trying to force us to accept what and who they are, and therefore they feel we should accept their marriage. Not. If they want to do things behind closed doors fine, but let's not desecrate marriage for what it is supposed to be and ordained by God, that is between one man and one woman.

    one deviant form of our society wants special rights because of who they think they are. And because of their sick mind set they care not to share the spotlight with another deviant form in our society because then being special and seeking that special right isn't any longer so special.........Now if the first deviant special rights group was to have sought to be an equal to the ones that are considered a natural form of our society then there wouldn't be any other deviant forms of our society seeking rights or their time in the spotlight. This society has excepted one deviant sick twisted form of our society, then all of the sick twisted deviant forms of our society will also be excepted.....it's all just a matter of time and the progressives are really on a roll with this

    Well, pedophilles hurt children's body and soul, screw their minds up. Children have no choice, can NOT get out that miserable situation at a pdp attack. Homosexual relationship seems to be very different.
