Pedophiles Want Same Rights As Homosexuals

This should come as no surprise that pedophiles are using the same tactics used by ‘gay’ rights activists to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.

An academic conference held at the University of Cambridge said that pedophilia interest is “natural and normal for males”, and that “at least a sizable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children, and normal males are aroused by children.”

These sentiments were discussed at a conference that took place last year to discuss the classification of sexuality in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), the standard international psychiatric manual used by the legal system.

Excerpted from the Northern Colorado Gazette:

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.

Critics 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.”

In 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.

Republicans 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.”

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

Van 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 abstinent.”

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.”

Dr. 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 else.”

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.”

Linda 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 non-consensual 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.”

[Note: the website also says in its mission statement: The Institute is dedicated to the belief that sexual rights are basic human rights and it is appropriate to help students understand that many people have been hurt, falsely imprisoned, harassed and persecuted because of laws and misinformation about the role and place of sexuality and its many expressions by individuals in our society.

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.

  1. umm… yeah, huge difference. victims.children do not make a choice to be sexual with an adult. this is a poor argument for justifying pedophilia. anthrax is natural but i don’t eat it and i don’t argue that it should be ok to sprinkle on my kids’ cereal….

    • To be homosexual is a completely different from a sick baster who likes children!!! I have two small children my self and if someone ever use the excuse of this is their way of life they will lose their life right there by my hands!! If this offends anybody I could care less!!!

      • Tell that to the people with child brides in Islamic countries….and people who will soon want those same “rights” when they immigrate to North America.

    • I was having sex and enjoying it by the age of 7. And I WAS making the choice. So your argument fails like your poor understanding of your environment.

    • HUGE difference in CONSENT. We consent to have a homosexual relationship because we have enough intelligence and freedom to do that. Children can’t do that. That’s the difference and it’s a HUGE one.

  2. How can it be a sexual preference when children grow up? They’re not looking for a life partner. They want to be in control and dominate a situation. They want to dominate an innocent child! Because some sick person did the same thing to them! They want sexual ABUSE to be LEGAL?!?! No parent would EVER consent to a pervert being intimate in ANY way with their child! Children shouldn’t even have to think about sex until they grow up. Sex is a bond that should be cherished and held to a high moral standard not like animals getting down during mating season. Someone who says having sex with children isn’t wrong probably doesn’t have children and I pray to God Never have children. My rant is done.

    • Finally someone with common sense and intelligence. Thank you for your rant, people need to know that that’s the difference: children grown up, so what’s gonna happen whent he child grows up? and children can’t give consent, that’s the most important thing. Children can’t give consent…

    • I agree with AAmanda very much.Besides, there is a law which protects minors from sex with adults.So how can be same doesnt run for children?It is illogical

  3. Whether someone is heterosexual, homosexual, trans-sexual doesn’t concern me. It has no impact on my life and how I choose to live it. That’s one of the benefits of being an adult. However, using the same criteria to condone the actions of baby rapers is inexcusable.

  4. I am ready to vomit after reading this article. There is no comparison between homosexuality and pedophilia. Two consenting adults that’s the main difference right there…consenting adults.
    Yes everyone says that it is not treatable but please that Doesn’t make it right. And if these psychologists truly want sexual orientation labeled that way then any person likes having sex with an animal over a human should be allowed as well….yeah just plain idiocy.
    As for the statement that child porn helps stop Or hinder pedophiles is absolutely appalling. So how do we pick the lucky kids that get to be in print and film for these demented minds. I have an idea if that psychologist has a child they should be happy to allow their child to be the star. I’m sure they would change their mind now. Unless they are pedophiles.

  5. Did anyone ask the innocent children whose innocence and childhood get stripped from? This is like legalizing rape. What the fuck is this country coming to?

  6. No where in the article did it say anything about any pedophiles wanting to be allowed to have sex with children. Just that they can’t help the attraction. Studies (I can’t be fucked finding them) have shown that pedophiles can be that way from birth, not just from childhood experiences.

    The point is that they can’t help their attraction. That is the way they are. They shouldn’t be persecuted for something they have literally no control over.

    That being said, if any of them did in fact have sex with a child, then it’s clearly rape and they should be punished the exact same as any other person would in those circumstances. Just because they are attracted to something doesn’t give them a right to fuck it without consent. The same way adults can’t just rape each other because they were attracted to the other person.

    The thing about child porn is stupid though. It keeps that 1 pedophile from raping a child but a child has already been exploited to create it so it’s a shit point to try and make.

    But yeah, the article didn’t even really make any points other then quote people saying that it’s a sexual orientation or should be treated as such. It didn’t say anything about any sort of agenda or anything. So pretty well all the comments on this are fucking stupid too. No where did it say that they would make having sex with children legal. Just that the attraction is natural and unchangeable for some very unfortunate people.

    • Is the following quote from this article NOT a point being made for the allowance of the ACT of pedophilia?
      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 non-consensual 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.”

      If this ever becomes “acceptable” or “protected” behavior, I will officially be done with this country. We will officially be a country beyond repair at that point, in my eyes, speaking as a survivor of such a “lifestyle” Let a pedofile come near my grandkids, or even look cross-eyed at one of them and I will end their sick f**k life on the spot. Package it anyway you want, this should in no way EVER be “acceptable” or “normal”….I don’t care who is offended by this.

      • Michelle, the key term in the quote you used is “non-consensual”. Children being unable to consent means that they are not advocating for adult-child sex. The person to whom you replied has it exactly right. This is psychologists analyzing human behavior and trying to categorize it, and a bunch of self-righteous blowhards jumping to the wrong conclusions.

    • First of all, who says children are innocent? That’s almost a myth in itself. And who says that they can’t consent? Maybe some cant, and maybe very young ones are incapable. But the very concept of childhood extending past 13 or 14 is fairly new. The term “teenager” didn’t appear as a “time of life” until the early 1900’s. Before then, in almost all societies (including Europe) children were routinely married off at 8 or 9, partially with the expectation the the defining act wouldn’t occur until they were around 13.
      I wish at 13 I would have found an adult who would at least help me understand the orientation I was being dragged into if not been able to lead me gently into it. Sexual urges start at puberty, and sexual orientation occurs at the same time. Innocence? i wasn’t. Consent? I did. This whole argument is as “pie in the sky” as others claim Christianity is.
      I would have consented. I wanted to consent. I didn’t find anyone else who would. The fact that I was a “minor” is a smoke screen thrown up to justify your own abhorrence. It’s not all the time real.
      Before puberty, I tend to agree a child doesn’t understand or consent. He follows the adult and does what he’s told. Maybe. Then again I’ve known lots of kids for which that statement isn’t true.
      I don’t condone rape, and in some cases pedophia is an act of non-violent rape. But I can’t condone people who close their minds and truth to what is and make blanket remarks full of holes. At least by yourselves a new blanket.

      • Are you a Sick Man. Idiot are you Condemning the act or Praising it…? What happened in the Past it was the Past. And if Social Morality of the Past was as “Sick” as you wrote; would it meant that it should be Practiced Today…??? You haven’t Wrote or Intentionally Mentioned the Huge Death Ratio Occurred as the Result of Early Child Marriage. God Knows How Many Innocents Mother and Children Died of this Insane Tradition. And if you don’t consider it a SICK act give me your Little one and I would fuck him/her so that you may Learn how much Painful REALITY is it !!!!

      • pedophiles are sexually interested and turned on by little children,children who have yet to reach puberty, a pederast is someone who is interested in children who are approaching puberty and or adulthood. ( 12-18 years old ) both are sick and in need of help. just so you know the difference-

        watch movie- ‘every man a pederast’ it explains mans attraction to youth

  7. I can’t help but look at that photo at the top of the article and think, “Draw me like one of your French girls…”

    Perhaps you’re engaging in a bit of projection with this one.

  8. This has to be fake. There is no way that rape is going to be legalized because homosexuality is legal. Two very different things here.

  9. Although Pedophilia may fulfill all the checkmarks to be called a sexual orientation this is hardly comparable to Heterosexuality or Homosexuality because in this case there is no consent for any sexual or emotional relationship between people participating in it. In this case, children are not emotionally, physical or psychological ready to have any kind of emotional or sexual relationship with people older than them. This means they cannot give consent to an adult for such acts. Any sexual preference in order to be “Healthy” should be make with consent from both parts involve.

  10. I think that pedophilia and homosexuality can be comparable because both acts are very sick and wrong and this world is sick and accepts everything sick so it won’t be surprising that pedophiles get the same rights as gays.

  11. I am physically ILL!!! I am so mad that I can’t even see straight! Pedophiles should be drawn and quartered! Sick doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about such monsters!!!

  12. But if you had a child at age 5 or something and you found out some random dude wants sex with your child and then rapist your child and the later in the future want the same right a gay people. you ain’t gonna take it well happen to my child

  13. What is wrong with you people?
    Sex is natural thing, which mother nature gives to us, to be able to continue oir species. Nor penis to penis, neither vagina to vagina can give you a child, so its already not how mother nature intented to create.
    But well when you are grown up man or woman you already have all right and responsibilities for your decisions, so maybe you can try have homo relationships. But kids, they dont have full right for they decisions, nor full responsibilities. So how its even possible to thing about that kind of sex being legal!!!!
