Pedophilia Rights!



After reading about the LGBT movement and seeing how they are slowly socially engineering for everyone to accept their lifestyle as normal, I asked myself something.  "What will stop pedophiles and other sexually deviant people from wanting the same?"  The answer is: nothing.

 If two men and two women are seen as normal and can marry, then of course those who have attractions to minors or even animals will request the same treatment.  Everyone wants "equality" right?!?


There was even a conference held to "normalize" pedophilia.

B4U-ACT.org: Seeking acceptance for "minor attracted person" and pedophiles


Will a Maryland group gain support in their quest to catagorize pedophilia and deviant acts against minors as normal, removing the APA's diagnosis of such as a mental disorder. Anything can happen. Photo: SQRT(UR MOTHER)
CHICAGO, August 17, 2011—The modern age has been hailed as post-gender and post-racial. Meaning that we've grown as a society beyond petty discrimination against people on the basis of race or gender identity, and such discrimination is met with the entire wrath our legal and social institutions can muster.
If some people have their way, this modern age will soon be post-pedophilia.   And playgrounds will be empty.
B4U-ACT is a Maryland-based group of mental health professionals, psychiatrists and pedophiles who want to normalize pedophilia. Instead of pejoratively calling them "pedophiles," "fiends," "deviants," "freaks," "perverts," "degenerates," "predators" or "pedophiles," they would prefer that society refer to them by the sensitive and socially-accepting term: minor attracted persons.  (Daily Caller)  
The groups latest symposium "Pedophilia, Minor-Attracted Persons, and the DSM: Issues and Controversies" was held today, August 17, 2011, in Baltimore, Maryland
The point of this symposium is to promote "tolerance” and “normalization.”  The group hopes it will lead to eventual acceptance of their peculiar desires and behaviors. It opposes treatment to change feelings of attraction to children, arguing that, "No one chooses to be emotionally and sexually attracted to children or adolescents. The cause is unknown; in fact, the development of attraction to adults is not understood. 
Howard Kline, the science director of B4U-ACT, said of the existing definition, "It is based on data from prison studies, which completely ignore the existence of those who are law-abiding," adding, “The Diagnostic and Statistical of Mental Disorders (DSM) should meet a higher standard than that ... We can help them, because we are the people they are writing about.” 
We? What kind of science does he direct?
People in the child-protection field are intolerantly alarmed.
They're concerned that the deletion of pedophilia from the DSM will result in the decriminalization of pedophilia behaviors and force the repeal of criminal laws punishing pedophiles and protecting children. 
B4U-ACT is described as “a 501(c)(3) organization that promotes dialog between mental health professionals and people with a sexual attraction to children or adolescents... “  
“B4U-ACT is a unique collaborative effort between minor-attracted people and mental health professionals to promote communication and understanding between the two groups.” 
Freaks, fiends, degenerates, perverts, deviants and predators have their own 501(c)(3) that collaborates with the shrinks. The patients are helping run the asylum.  
The goal of B4U-ACT is to demand, convince, cajole, and do whatever it takes to get the APA to revise the definition of pedophilia in the DSM. They are appalled that the current definition of “minor-attracted persons” is “inaccurate” and “misleading”.  
The DSM connects pedophilia with criminality. Which is, rights of the minor be damned, insensitive. The APA is not taking B4U-ACT seriously on this point. Even psychiatrists are not that crazy.
But it is worth being informed, and afraid, of this group. 
What concerns B4U-ACT is the criminal stigma of pedophilia on law-abiding “minor attracted persons.”  The whole objective of this conference is to develop strategies and condition society “into accepting pedophiles”. 
The first thing they do is to get the public to divest from thinking of what the offender does criminally, to thinking of the offender’s emotional state, to think of him as thinking of his emotional state, [and] to empathize and sympathize," says child advocate Dr. Judith Reisman. "You don’t change the nation in one fell swoop; you have to change it by conditioning. The aim is to get them [pedophiles] out of prison.” (Emphasis mine)
Excuse me while I go hide the kid in the bunker.    
Dr. Richard Kramer, B4U-ACT director of operations, wrote, “What purpose does calling someone a ‘pervert’ or ‘predator’ serve anyway, other than to express contempt and hatred? ... How is this productive? It certainly doesn’t protect children. I would urge all SO [sex offender] activists to listen to their own message: Stop buying into and promoting false stereotypes. Stop demonizing a whole class of people, and start learning the facts.”   
Sex Offender activists?  Class of people?  You really can’t make this stuff up.  
Jacob Breslow, a graduate student in gender research at the London School of Economics, admits to being  excited  over the potential for exploiting the removal of pedophilia from the next edition of the DSM. In his abstract Sexual Alignment: Critiquing Sexual Orientation, the Pedophile and the DSM V, Breslow writes:
“Allowing for a form of non-diagnosable minor attraction is exciting, as it creates a sexual or political identity by which activists, scholars and clinicians can better understand Minor Attracted Persons.”  (Emphasis mine on purpose) 
Where do we draw the line on hating the sin, but not the sinner? When does tolerance lapse into parody? When does self-accountability become more important than deviant urges? 
There are some acts in this world - rape, torture, murder, and yes, pedophilia - that are hateful, and the urges to commit them are contemptible.  It was once said, a long time ago, that columnists should incorporate the words fiend, pervert, degenerate, etc. as many times as they can get away with.
This is an unfortunate opportunity to obey that rule.

2011 Symposium


Pedophilia, Minor-Attracted Persons, and the DSM:
Issues and Controversies
Wednesday, August 17, 2011
Baltimore, MD


Featured Speaker: Fred Berlin, M.D., Ph.D., founder, National Institute for the Study, Prevention and Treatment of Sexual Trauma; founder, Johns Hopkins Sexual Disorders Clinic

News Release 

This day-long symposium will facilitate the exchange of ideas among researchers, scholars, mental health practitioners, and minor-attracted persons who have an interest in critical issues surrounding the entry for pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association. The symposium will address critical issues in the following areas:
  • Scientific and philosophical issues related to the DSM entry on pedophilia and/or hebephilia
  • Effects of the DSM entry on stigma, availability of mental health services, and research
  • Ways in which minor-attracted persons can be involved in the DSM 5 revision process
It is crucial that the DSM be based on the most accurate and complete scientific information available, and on careful consideration of effects on the welfare of patients and society. This is especially true for the DSM entry on pedophilia; it has an enormous impact on the beliefs and practices of mental health professionals, the criminal justice system, the media, and the public. It also has a profound effect on adults and teenagers who are emotionally and sexually attracted to children or adolescents, on the availability of mental health services for them, and on relevant research.

The revision of DSM currently underway provides both the opportunity and the necessity to address fundamental issues surrounding the DSM entry for pedophilia. Numerous unresolved issues have been raised by scholars, researchers, and minor-attracted people. Controversy has arisen over scientific issues (e.g., the setting of diagnostic threshholds, the representativeness of forensic samples), philosophical issues (e.g., the definition of paraphilia, the nature of disorder, and whether hebephilia should be considered a disorder), and consequences of the DSM entry (e.g., its use in civil commitment hearings, its effects on stigma).

This symposium faciliates the interaction necessary for these issues to be addressed. The APA emphasizes that DSM revisions should involve the interaction of researchers from "diverse perspectives, disciplines, and areas of expertise" and be "sensitive to the needs of clinicians and their patients." Representatives from all of these groups will play important roles at this symposium.Social workers and psychologists who attend will receive 6.0 continuting education units (CEUs).

Now, they are starting to organize and start some kind of "rights" movement.

Pedophiles want same rights as homosexuals

Claim unfair to be stigmatized for sexual orientation

by Jack Minor –
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 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  age."
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.
