Back in September we saw one of the first blatant efforts to legitimize pedophilia. Salon published a piece titled I’m a pedophile, but not a monster (Hummm, no).
Pedophilia is a paraphilia that involves an abnormal interest in children. A paraphilia is a disorder that is characterized by recurrent intense sexual urges and sexually arousing fantasies generally involving: nonhuman objects; the suffering or humiliation of oneself or one’s partner (not merely simulated); or animals, children, or other nonconsenting persons. Pedophilia is also a psychosexual disorder in which the fantasy or actual act of engaging in sexual activity with prepubertal children is the preferred or exclusive means of achieving sexual excitement and gratification. It may be directed toward children of the same sex or children of the other sex. Some pedophiles are attracted to both boys and girls. Some are attracted only to children, while others are attracted to adults as well as to children.
Pedophilia is defined by mental health professionals as a mental disorder, but the American legal system defines acting on a pedophilic urge as a criminal act.
We’ve nipped around the edges for years. We allow 13 and 14 year old girls to get abortions without any police involvement. We’ve enacted “Romeo and Juliet” laws that sexualize young women and give older sexual predators a literal “Get Out of Jail Free” card. We saw GOP women side with the abortion industry in defeating a bill that would have required any woman asking for an abortion based on rape or incest to report the incident to the police. In short, all the ground work has been laid for making pedophilia a legitimate sexual activity
The truth is that pedophiles and their sympathizers are using the homosexual rights playbook. The same arguments Anthony Kennedy (and I have no evidence that Kennedy is a pedophile) made in deciding Lawrence vs. Texas and hammered home in Obergefell vs. Hodges can be applied directly to pedophiles. The fact that we already allow 13 and 14 year old girls sufficient agency to decide to take birth control pills or get an abortion without parental consent is a de factodeath blow to state age of consent laws. Once consent is taken as something that is inherent in one’s humanity, ephebophilia (or pedophilia-lite) will be all the rage and it will just be a hop-skip-and-jump to full blown legalization of pedophilia.
We will see phase two of the operation unfolding. We are being conditioned to believe that pedophiles acting as, well, pedophiles is a function on them being shunned by normal people and made feel inferior. From Realizing You’re a Pedophile Can Make You Want to Kill Yourself:
The unfortunate thing is that on the progressive side of the spectrum, where the urge to use whatever it takes to scratch that insatiable itch in your nether regions, there is already an an underlying current of pedophilia evident in movies and television that needs just a tiny nudge to take off. And when this happens you will see pedophilia mainstreamed into HBO, Showtime, and the edgy Hollywood and Indie movies that are featured at Cannes and Sundance.
