Gays Rights May Open Door for Pedophile Rights
Democrats have attempted to normalize pedophilia as a sexual orientation.
A recent Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage may soon allow pedophiles to argue they are suffering discrimination.
“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,” writes Jack Minor for the Northern Colorado Gazette.
Minor notes that “psychiatrists are now beginning to advocate redefining pedophilia in the same way homosexuality was redefined several years ago.”
Homosexuality was long considered a mental illness. However, in 1973, the American Psychiatric Association declassified it from a list of mental disorders.
More recently a self-described organization of “minor-attracted people,” B4U-ACT, held a symposium proposing a new definition of pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders of the APA.
B4U-ACT and other pedophile advocacy organizations cite an 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.”
In 2013 in California Congresswoman Rep. Jackie Speier, a Democrat, proposed federalizing a state law prohibiting counseling to change a person’s sexual orientation. The bill, according to critics, defines pedophilia as a sexual orientation and would afford the same rights granted to homosexuals.
“This language is so broad and vague, it arguably could include all forms of sexual orientation, including pedophilia,” said Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute. “It’s not just the orientation that is protected — the conduct associated with the orientation is protected as well.”
Democrats defeated an amendment by Republicans that stated “pedophilia is not covered as an orientation.” A Florida Democrat, Rep. Alcee Hastings, said all alternative sexual lifestyles should be protected under the law.
In 2014 The New York Times argued in favor of civil rights for pedophiles.
