Labour MPs’ child sex link row deepens

March 2nd, 2014 Jill Posted in Paedophilia Comments Off

Robert Mendick, Sunday Telegraph

New details have emerged showing how Patricia Hewitt tried to defend a policy that would have legalised sex with 10-year-olds

Labour has been plunged into further controversy after new evidence suggested one of its former Cabinet ministers once defended a policy calling for the legalisation of sex with children as young as 10.

The allegations were the latest to centre on the role of senior Labour figures in the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) during the Seventies, a time when the organisation had links to a paedophile group.

New details have emerged showing how Patricia Hewitt, then the body’s general secretary, tried to defend a policy that would have legalised sex with 10-year-olds.

The evidence was disclosed in a letter in which Mrs Hewitt — later health secretary in Tony Blair’s government —argued in favour of a reduction in the age of consent, despite a senior teacher pointing out that such a move could only be promoted by “some very twisted minds”.

The development added to the pressure for a full disclosure of the links between the NCCL and the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), which was affiliated to it.

Allen Ginsberg, Camille Paglia and the literary champions of paedophilia

March 1st, 2014 Jill Posted in Paedophilia Comments Off

Camille PagliaBy Tim Stanley, Telegraph

Paedophilia isn’t just about dirty old nobodies in raincoats. The scandal surrounding Harriet Harman and Patricia Hewitt’s links to the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) shows us how evil men once exploited the sexual revolution and the Left’s naivety to advance their agenda and invade the mainstream. But the corruption didn’t stop there. It infected the literary establishment, too.
 
In 1995, Calvin Klein unveiled a controversial commercial featuring scantily clad teenagers. Camille Paglia, the feminist social critic, took to the pages of celebrated gay magazine The Advocate to attack the firm – but not for indecency. She accused them of cowardice. She wrote: “If [the manufacturers] want to borrow the iconography of paedophilia, they should have the courage to step forward and admit it.” Paglia added: “Paedophilia is an increasingly irrational issue in America. Gays must valiantly defend their cultural tradition by carefully articulating its highest meanings.”
 
It is shocking that Paglia could write this, and she in no way spoke for gay readers, for whom paedophilia was utterly abhorrent. But the critic’s words did reflect the feelings of another literary giant. “Two years ago,” she wrote, “with Allen Ginsberg and others, I signed a manifesto supporting NAMBLA (the North American Man Boy Love Association).” NAMBLA were the perverted bedfellows of PIE.

How Margaret Hodge’s policies allowed paedophiles to infiltrate Islington children’s homes

February 28th, 2014 Jill Posted in Paedophilia, Politics Comments Off

From Spotlightonabuse, April 2013

Margaret Hodge became leader of Islington in 1982 and stayed in the job until 1992 when it became apparent, due to exposure by whistleblowers working with the Evening Standard, that every one of Islington’s eleven children’s homes was staffed by members of a paedophile network who were sexually abusing children in care, and were involved in prostitution, child trafficking, and the trade in images of child abuse.

In a recent Guardian interview, Margaret Hodge attempted to talk her way out of responsibility for the child abuse scandal at Islington Council: All that happened when we didn’t really understand child abuse in the way that we understand it now. This was the early 90s … It was only beginning to emerge that paedophiles were working with children, in children’s homes and elsewhere, and so I think my great regret there was believing without question the advice that I was given by the social services managers.

This isn’t what really happened. Hodge was told about a paedophile network operating in Islington’s children’s homes, but she refused to listen.
 
Margaret Hodge is also silent about how her policies directly enabled paedophiles to work with children and escape detection. Islington Council’s Equal Opportunities policy was unveiled in August 1983.
 
It promised “positive action” to recruit gay staff, gave an assurance that all council jobs would be open to gay applicants – including the sensitive area of work with children, promised that nobody would be put at a disadvantage if they came out as gay at work, and pledged ‘adequate redress’ to any lesbian or gay man who was subjected to “any harassment, whether physical or verbal” by members of the public or fellow workers…
 
…Job advertisements will in future carry an announcement that Islington Council does not discriminate against lesbians and gay men, and will invite them to apply.
 
Labour councillor Bob Crossman was the only person to speak in the “debate” on the proposals, after the policy had been proposed formally by Council Leader Margaret Hodge.
 
On the face of it, this was an honourable policy, setting out to give protection to an oppressed minority. And why shouldn’t gays be able to work with children, surely they weren’t they any more likely to abuse children than heterosexuals?
 
Unfortunately, things weren’t what they seemed. The gay liberation movement had been infiltrated by paedophiles as early as 1975. There were paedophiles posing as gay men and hiding behind the gay rights banner to avoid detection. The largest and most influential organisation in the gay rights movement was the Campaign for Homosexual Equality (CHE). At their national conference in Sheffield in 1975 they voted to give paedophiles a bigger role in the gay rights movement. CHE were affilated to the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), who campaigned for the age of consent to be reduced to 4, which would effectively legalise paedophilia. Copies of PIE’s manifesto were sold at CHE conferences.

Harman should have given a proper apology

February 26th, 2014 Jill Posted in Paedophilia, Politics Comments Off

By Harry Phibbs, Conservative Home

Last year Ann Widdecombe’s memoirs Strictly Ann were published. In this she reflects on the child sex scandals involving celebrities that have been emerging from the 1970s and 1980s. Her view is that pillars of the liberal establishment were to blame for the failure to take it seriously at the time:
 
Miss Widdecombe said:
 
“Let us look at the state of our knowledge about paedophilia at the time and begin with the unlikely figures of Harriet Harman and Patricia Hewitt, now exemplary mothers and pillars of the establishment, then officers of the National Council for Civil Liberties, which allowed affiliation from the national Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE). It stayed affiliated from 1978 to 1983.
In 1977 the National Council for Civil Liberties stated that it had no policy on PIE’s aims but claimed the evidence showed that ‘children are harmed if, after a mutual relationship with an adult, they are exposed to the attentions of the police’.
 
Does anyone suppose from this that Harriet Harman and Patricia Hewitt back paedophilia and do not want the involvement of the police? No, it merely shows the state of understanding, or rather lack of it that then prevailed. The same appalling ignorance is evident in Harman‘s response on behalf of the NCCL to a bill that sought to ban indecent images of under-sixteens. The same body also wanted to decriminalise incest.”
 
The Daily Mail’s recent investigation has brought more details to light. But the extraordinary decision of the NCCL to accept affiliation from PIE is really the crux of the matter. Miss Harman should say that it was appalling and that she made a terrible mistake maintaining her involvement with the NCCL in view of it. Simply to shrug it off on the grounds that lots of organisations were affiliates, as she did in her Newsnight interview, is not good enough.
 
While we are at it, some more apologies would be in order from another dark episode in NCCL’s past. However, this time it concerns an episode before Miss Harman joined the staff, but when Patricia Hewitt was General Secretary of the NCCL.

Labour’s paedophile problem is more about press regulation

February 25th, 2014 Jill Posted in Children/Family, Paedophilia, Politics Comments Off

From Cranmer

If the Roman Catholic Church had forged links – even as far back as the 1970s – with something called the Paedophile Information Exchange, the political outrage and media onslaught would have been monumental. Certainly, there have been many thousands of appalling cases and a chronic culture of cover-up, but no one can pretend that this was countenanced by canon lawyers or advocated by the Magisterium. Similarly, if the BBC were found to have proven historic (= Savile-era) connections with a group which favoured easing restrictions on child pornography; advocated a more relaxed attitude to paedophilia; proposed the legalisation of incest; and wanted to lower the age of consent to 10, there would be urgent demands for a public inquiry, with immediate suspensions and assurances in Parliament that heads will role.

But when three current Labour politicians – former officers of National Council for Civil Liberties – are confronted with documented links to something that really was called the Paedophile Information Exchange, and when it is set down in black and white that this group really did agitate for all of the aforementioned 'progressive' policies, you have to wonder why Ed Miliband has not at least instigated an internal inquiry and done a few background checks on Harriet Harman, Jack Dromey and (former MP) Patricia Hewitt. Instead, he declared that his MPs do not "set any store by these allegations", and that Harriet Harman in particular is a person of "huge decency and integrity".

The evidence (if it be) has been set out in the Daily Mail, even alleging that "the Labour government of the time may have helped finance the organisation". Unsurprisingly, Ms Harman has dismissed this as a politically motivated campaign – a smear, indeed, of the most despicable Dacre sort, to which depths of journalism neither she nor Labour would ever stoop.

Harriet Harman ‘regrets’ former employer’s link to paedophile lobbyists

February 25th, 2014 Jill Posted in Children/Family, News, Paedophilia Comments Off

Nicholas Watt and Rowena Mason, Guardian
 
Harriet Harman has embarked on an abrupt change of tack and expressed regret that her former employers at the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) granted affiliate status to a paedophile lobbying group in the 1970s.
 
Less than 12 hours after the Labour party's deputy leader told BBC's Newsnight that she was the victim of a smear campaign by the Daily Mail over the NCCL's links to the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), Harman's office issued a statement expressing regret about the links.
 
But Harman insisted that the affiliate status, granted in 1975, three years before she joined the NCCL as legal officer, was "immaterial" to her work.
 
An aide to Harman told the BBC's deputy political editor James Landale: "She regrets the existence of PIE and of course she regrets any organisation's involvement with them, including the National Council for Civil Liberties. But they were immaterial to her work. She does not regret joining the NCCL. By the time she arrived [PIE] were very much under the radar."
 
The statement from Harman's office came after she was widely criticised for an interview on BBC2's Newsnight on Monday night in which she declined to express any regret and instead attacked the Daily Mail for publishing "titivating" pictures of very young girls in bikinis.

Tell us more about your paedophile chums, Harriet

February 23rd, 2014 Jill Posted in Media, Paedophilia Comments Off

Harriet HarmanBy Rod Liddle, Sunday Times

What a pleasure it is to see the Paedophile Information Exchange back in the news: it’s been too long, chaps.

Just to say the name sends the mind scuttling back, perhaps in a Ford Cortina GXL, to the febrile mid-1970s, when people were out on the streets demonstrating for their right to have sex with anything with a pulse. Including, in the case of the Paedophile Information Exchange, children as young as four.

It is clearly an organisation from a different era. I think if you were minded to set up a similar group today, you’d probably choose a less in-your-face name for it — otherwise sponsorship money would be thin on the ground. You’d keep an ear open for the occasional dawn raid, too.

I say “back in the news”, but this is not quite correct. So far, only a handful of newspapers have reported the fact that three very senior Labour party figures had rather close links with the group back in the good ol’ seventies. They are the two most high-born and hoity of Labour’s women — the former health secretary Patricia Hewitt and the party’s deputy leader Harriet Harman — along with Harman’s hubby, the serving MP and former party treasurer Jack Dromey.

Can you imagine how the media — and especially the BBC — would react if three current senior Conservative MPs were revealed to have had links to a paedophile group? The Beeb would be in a state of perpetual agitation: you would not hear the last. It would make the reporting of Nelson Mandela’s death look a model of restraint and brevity.

The ‘right’ to sleep with children was one ‘civil liberty’ that NCCL supported

February 23rd, 2014 Jill Posted in Paedophilia Comments Off

By Andrew Gilligan, Telegraph

The first chapter of Tom O’Carroll’s book reads a little like a romantic novel, as the author describes his “special friendship” with a “raven-haired little charmer”, spoiled only by the “stupid, blind, socially programmed” parents who “come between” them.

In other places, it’s like soft porn, with fairly graphic descriptions of nudity and sex. (“I knew my little naked body didn’t look like anything… but Uncle Herman looked at me as if I were Sophia Loren,” gushes a female contributor.)

There are, however, several important differences. The book, a manifesto for the legalisation of sex with children, is called Paedophilia: The Radical Case. O’Carroll was a teacher, and the “raven-haired little charmer” was one of his pupils, an 11-year-old schoolboy called Chris. Uncle Herman was in his fifties, and the girl he had sex with was 12.

But most unusually of all, O’Carroll’s foreword, with its passionate plea not to “deny children their sexual life, including the possibility of sexual contact with adults”, expresses his “heartfelt thanks” to those who helped him write his rallying-call, “especially… Ms Nettie Pollard of the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) [who] read the whole text in draft and made many helpful suggestions”.

O’Carroll had been a “sexually predatory” paedophile, “determined to find a boy, or boys, for what I assured myself would be mutually pleasurable and affectionate sex… All I had to do was pop out to the nearest canal bank, or swimming baths, or park.” After this didn’t work, he “rained letters” on Chris, then turned up on the child’s doorstep “emboldened by drink, and aggressive with it”. O’Carroll was any parent’s darkest nightmare.

Yet at the time this book was published, in 1980, O’Carroll and the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) – a body founded to openly lobby for child sex – were part of NCCL, now Liberty, Britain’s foremost mainstream civil rights organisation.

Paedophile Rights Campaign Still Causing a Stink for Harriet Harman – 40 Years on

February 21st, 2014 Jill Posted in Children/Family, Paedophilia Comments Off

by Dominic Gover, International Business Times

The Labour party is facing fresh revelations about the relationship between some of its most senior members and an organisation called the Paedophile Information Exchange, which campaigned for the legalisation of sex with children under five, during the 1970s.

The discredited organisation has been linked to a number of big Labour names including the party's current deputy leader, Harriet Harman, by a Daily Mail investigation.

Harman and her husband, Labour's shadow minister for policing Jack Dromey, are tied to Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) by their shared past in the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL), the former name of human rights group Liberty.
Former health secretary Patricia Hewitt was general secretary of the NCCL from 1974-83, Harman was its legal officer from 1978-82 and Dromey sat on the group's executive committee for nine years, between 1970 and 1979.

During those years, the NCCL built links with PIE and lobbied parliament on behalf of its agenda. Close relations between the groups were apparently founded on the shared principle of social and sexual progressiveness.

PIE members maintained that sexual relations between children and adults did not harm the former.

In 1978, Harman claimed that sex abuse images should be given back to paedophiles by police who had seized them because doing otherwise would be censorship.

Yet More Sexual Insanity

January 26th, 2014 Jill Posted in Other sexual 'orientations', Paedophilia Comments Off

By Bill Muehlenberg, Culture Watch

One can argue that the past century has been one grand social experiment to see what life would be like if we kicked God and transcendent moral values out of the West. Well, the results are in, and it is not looking very good. When we ditch the one certain source of objective morality and absolute truth, mankind is simply left to its own devices.
 
We end up making things up as we go along, and everyone does what is right in their own eyes. Anything goes, and this is especially true in the area of sexuality. All boundaries are cast aside, and every kinky and bizarre thing imaginable is engaged in and sanctioned.
 
Everywhere we see the brave new world of unbridled sexuality. And despite what the sexual libertines say, we all suffer as a result – especially children. When we manage to foolishly convince ourselves that absolutely anything goes when it comes to sexuality, then there will always be plenty of losers.
 
So let me offer another handful of cases, beginning with this shocker from Italy: “Italy’s highest court has overturned the conviction of a 60-year-old man for having sex with an 11-year-old girl, because the verdict failed to take into account their ‘amorous relationship’.

Paedophile Jailed For Sex With Girl, 11, Has Conviction Overturned Because Of ‘Loving Relationship’

January 3rd, 2014 Jill Posted in Paedophilia Comments Off

From Huffington Post

A 60-year-old man caught having sex with an 11-year-old girl has had his conviction overturned by an Italian high court because the pair were in a loving relationship, according to media reports.
 
Social worker Pietro Lamberti of Catanzaro, southern Italy, was sentenced to five years in prison in February 2011 after he was convicted of sexual acts with a minor, AFP writes.
 
The agency adds the verdict was upheld by an appeals court but overturned by Italy’s supreme court, which ruled it did not sufficiently consider “the ‘consensus’, the existence of an amorous relationship, the absence of physical force, the girl’s feelings of love.”
 
The court’s October decision to order a retrial was made public in December by paper Il Quotidiano della Calabria.
 
The newspaper described the girl as “disadvantaged” and quotes Lamberti as telling the girl their relationship “is a secret that we have to bring to the grave.”
 
According to Russia Today, the high court judge who overturned the conviction said the pair: “Shared a genuine loving emotional bond that could justify the carnal union between the two.”

Is paedophilia a sexual orientation?

January 2nd, 2014 Jill Posted in Paedophilia Comments Off

ED: Anglican Mainstream’s remit includes a wide range of ethical and theological issues as well as ones more focused around human sexuality. Our readers will know that we stand against all forms of sex outside heterosexual marriage, whether it be gay, straight, bi, etc. However, as is increasingly obvious, ‘sexual orientation’ arguments are being publicly advanced by sexual minorities who are committed to following in the footsteps of the wildly successful LGBT. But even more concerning is the fact that a mainstream periodical would publish what is in fact a pro-paedophile apologetic. 

The writing is on the wall here! The church must address the fallacy of the sexual ‘orientation’ or Born This Way argument and soon. Paedophiles such as those mentioned below are ‘coming out’ now. They love working with children. Do you want to be forced to hire them as your next Director of Children’s Ministry? 

Once we are obliged to affirm this sexual ‘orientation’ we’re on the way to seriously undercutting the taboo that helps protects society against sex with minors.


By Laura Kane, Toronto Star

Pedophilia has been widely viewed as a psychological disorder triggered by early childhood trauma.

Now, many experts 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.
 
Cantor’s team has found that pedophiles share a number of physical characteristics, including differences in brain wiring. It’s now thought that about 1 to 5 per cent of men are pedophiles, meaning they are primarily attracted to children.
 
These findings have been widely accepted among scientists, but have had little impact on social attitudes or law. However, we are left with the alarming question: if some men are born pedophiles, what should society do with them?

Are London Cabbies Born or Made?

December 28th, 2013 Jill Posted in Paedophilia Comments Off

From line in the sand blog

Recently the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto, Canada has published the results of ten years' research that they claim shows paedophilia to be an "orientation" rather than a psychological condition.
 
This comes on the back of the controversial classification in the Diagnostic Statistical Manual version Five (DSM V) which originally labelled paedophilia as an orientation, the statements from two Toronto based psychology professors who told the Canadian parliament that paedophilia is an orientation, and the two Dutch psychologists who stated that paedophiles should be "treated" through the use of "virtual porn". The basis of this appears, from the work of Dr James Cantor of CAMH is that there are differences in the brain between paedophiles and non-paedophiles. Because of this paedophilia must be an orientation.
 
For those with long enough memories this argument echoes that used by Simon Le Vay with his work on the hypothalamus from 1991. In this research Le Vay claimed that he found differences in part of the hypothalamus in the cadavers (dead bodies) of those who were homosexual and heterosexual. The problems with this research include that no-one, not even Le Vay, was able to replicate the research, and that the differences in the brain that Le Vay thought he had seen could have been caused by homosexual behaviour, not the cause of homosexual behaviour.
 
This takes me back to the odd title of this blog post – about the issue of London Cabbies.

Apologists for paedophiles

Harriet HarmanED:  Daily Telegraph journalist Martin Beckford uncovered this in 2009, but it went largely unnoticed

By Guy Adams, Mailonline

How Labour Deputy Harriet Harman, her shadow minister husband and former Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt were all linked to a group lobbying for the right to have sex with children

  • Magpie magazine distributed in the late Seventies to members of PIE
  • PIE is Paedophile Information Exchange – the name of a far-Left lobby group
  • Called for legalisation of child sex and age of consent to be lowered to four
  • Emerged this week Labour government of the time may helped finance the organisation and The Magpie
  • Home Office now ordered a 'thorough, independent investigation' into claims
  • Hewitt, Harman and husband Dromey encountered the PIE as young officials in the National Council for Civil Liberties

[...]  For the initials PIE stand for Paedophile Information Exchange. This turns out to be the name of a far-Left lobby group which spent much of the Seventies and early Eighties publicly calling for the legalisation of child sex — and the age of consent to be lowered to four.

Today, PIE has been widely forgotten. But at the time, it achieved prominence for circulating articles by tame psychologists and cod scientists promoting the ‘rights’ of paedophiles.

[...]  ‘The PIE somehow managed to convince feminists and the gay rights lobby that they had shared values and that we all belonged in the same club,’ recalls one feminist writer whose magazine was lobbied for support by the PIE after the Exchange won NCCL affiliation.

‘Anyone who spoke out against them feared being called a “homophobe”, which in Left-wing circles at the time was about the biggest insult anyone could throw at you. So they were invited into the liberal establishment.’

A PIE ‘information’ leaflet published at the time, called Paedophilia: Some Questions And Answers, shows how the organisation had managed to ally its cause to the gay rights movement.

‘Homosexuals are now widely regarded as ordinary, healthy people — a minority, but no more “ill” than the minority who are left-handed,’ it read. ‘There is no reason why paedophilia should not win similar acceptance.’

50 Shades of Grey – Pedophilia Hiding In Plain Sight

December 6th, 2013 Jill Posted in Paedophilia Comments Off

By Dr Judith Reisman

The story of convicted child rapist Jerry Sandusky is well known. So too is the 50 Shades of Grey phenomena, a book that has become so popular among women that some are referring to it as "Mommy Porn" for the masses. That description is actually a lot more disturbing than a lot of folks are currently realizing.

Yes, 50 Shades is pornography. Like most pornography, the storyline is weak, the characters one-dimensional, while the sex itself graphic, detailed, but formulaic. The underlying theme to 50 Shades is something far more sinister and appalling though than your mere run-of-the-mill porn. It is pedophilia. It is child porn. Kiddie porn.

Now I know after saying that, many female fans of 50 Shades, many of them mothers, will naturally put up a defense against that kind of description. These women, being mothers, are naturally wired to protect kids. People like Jerry Sandusky are viewed with hatred, revulsion, and disgust. Rightfully so. What mother would want to condone anything having to do with the sexual abuse of children? Of innocents?

But that is exactly what 50 Shades of Grey is really about. It is a story of a girl being sexually molested, over and over again, by a male figure with all the power, all the control. It is the classic abuse scenario. And mothers are, in some cases, quite literally getting off on it, which takes the disgust of this phenomena to a whole other frightening level.

So having put that out there, and I hope I haven't lost any of you just yet. I owe you an explanation after having made that kind of accusation about a book some of you may be reading right now. I'll start with a bit of background first.

The Dark Shadow of Paedophilia

November 28th, 2013 Jill Posted in Paedophilia Comments Off

From A Line in the Sand

Earlier this year the American Family Association shocked many people when they pointed out that in the new edition of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM V) from the American Psychiatric Association (APA) paedophilia was defined as an orientation. The classification was very tight and paedophilia, or paedophilic disorder as it was now called, would only be seen as an orientation if the client showed no remorse or felt no guilt over their feelings and there was no risk of anyone being harmed. When this news broke the APA quickly stated that they had made a mistake.
 
The blog  said
APA has issued a statement acknowledging an error in the text of DSM-5 that involves the definition and diagnosis of pedophilic disorder. In a discussion, the text uses the term "pedophilic sexual orientation," but does not use the word "orientation" in the criteria for pedophilic disorder. APA emphasizes that language in the discussion should have referred to pedophilia as a sexual "interest" rather than an "orientation," an error that was simply overlooked by editors. In fact, APA considers pedophilic disorder a "paraphilia," not a "sexual orientation." This error will be corrected in the electronic version of DSM-5 and the next printing of the manual, the press release points out."
The blog also said
The statement notes as well that "APA stands firmly behind efforts to criminally prosecute those who sexually abuse and exploit children and adolescents. We also support continued efforts to develop treatments for those with pedophilic disorder with the goal of preventing future acts of abuse.
All well and good, but what comes next, from a specific spokesman, is more worrying.
 
The blog now says
The statement notes as well that "APA stands firmly behind efforts to criminally prosecute those who sexually abuse and exploit children and adolescents. We also support continued efforts to develop treatments for those with pedophilic disorder with the goal of preventing future acts of abuse.
Psychiatrist Jack Drescher, M.D., a member of the DSM-5 Work Group on Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders, commented on the error to Psychiatric News, emphasizing that "the language used in DSM-5 does not represent any official position of APA that pedophilia is a 'sexual orientation.' " He said that he interpreted the description at issue "as an alternative way of saying 'pedophilic arousal pattern.' The same could be said for other paraphilias that also are not considered to be sexual orientations." He added that "Making more of this issue than it actually means is simply a tempest in a teapot."" This is more worrying, not just because Drescher dismisses the concerns of others but because Dr Drescher appears to see paedophilia, bestiality and necrophilia as legitimate ways to have sexual feelings.
 
While the APA states the defining of paedophilia as an orientation as a "mistake" a DSM takes around 5 years to produce and goes through a large number of committees and editing processes so why was this mistake not picked up?

How the ‘gay’ child-sex-abuse cover-up kills young men

November 17th, 2013 Jill Posted in Paedophilia Comments Off

By Judith Reisman

The battle for "gay" marriage clings for life to a "born that way" mythology fathered by the psychopathic Al Kinsey's claims that we are 10 percent to 37 percent homosexual. (See my law review article, "Crafting Bi/Homosexual Youth." )

While a "gay gene" lay undiscovered in hopeful cadavers, tears, handedness and such, "gay" child sex abuse has a long cross cultural etiology of precipitating non-normative identity.
 
In fact, an analysis of the groundbreaking 1983 book, "One Teenager in Ten: Writings by Gay And Lesbian Youth," finds 38 percent of these teens reporting personal "gay" child sex abuse. The vulnerable youngsters were counseled that their abuse was their own fault, for they were really "born that way."
 
By July 2000, "Sexual Assault of Young Children as Reported to Law Enforcement – Victim, Incident, and Offender Characteristics, A NIBRS Statistical Report" found massive increases in child sexual abuse. Moreover, "14 percent of sex assault victims reported to law enforcement agencies were under age 6."
 
Males were 15 percent of the juvenile victims of sexual assault with an object, 20 percent of the juvenile victims of forcible fondling and 59 percent of the juvenile victims of forcible sodomy. For victims under age 12, the male proportions were even greater: sexual assault with an object (19 percent), forcible fondling (26 percent) and forcible sodomy (64 percent).
 
Forcible sodomy 64 percent! Like the Stockholm syndrome, child victims are quickly convinced they "wanted" their sexual abuse – it was their fault. Why?

From The Huffington Post

Sex dolls look a bit creepy at the best of times, but this is just plain wrong.

A Chinese website is under fire for selling disturbingly life-like child-size, sex dolls.

The disturbing advert, spotted by an advocacy group on Facebook called Dining for Dignity, shows the model of a girl, who does not look much older than 9 or 10.
 
Described as a “beautiful young girl sex doll for men,” the item costs $178 and is available to ship worldwide.

"We also have the Internet today, which allows predators to virtually stalk and contact child actors in a more personal way."

Multiple professionals warned that predators and pedophiles – both 30 years ago and today – do not choose their prey randomly.
