Cambridge: Pedophile is ‘natural and normal’

“Pedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” said the presentation at a conference held by the University of Cambridge. “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”

In the wake of gay marriage, critics are claiming that pedophilia will be the next glass ceiling to get broken. A new article by the Telegraph examined the claims from last July.

Ken Plummer is emeritus professor of sociology at Essex University, where he has an office and teaches courses, the most recent scheduled for last month. “The isolation, secrecy, guilt and anguish of many paedophiles,” he wrote in Perspectives on Pedophilia, “are not intrinsic to the phenomen[on] but are derived from the extreme social repression placed on minorities …

“Pedophiles are told they are the seducers and rapists of children; they know their experiences are often loving and tender ones. They are told that children are pure and innocent, devoid of sexuality; they know both from their own experiences of childhood and from the children they meet that this is not the case.”

Other presentations included “Liberating the paedophile: a discursive analysis,” and “Danger and difference: the stakes of hebephilia.”

There article details a shocking and disturbing arena of justifying the behavior.

“…there really is now no shortage of evidence about the harm done by child abuse. In the latest frenzy about the crimes of the past, it’s worth watching whether we could, in the future, go back to the intellectual climate which allowed them.”

    Furry, you are absolutely correct to point out that any harm from sex abuse is more likely to be sociogenic rather than a result of any sex with a pedophile. And actually in the definitive study of child sex abuse published in 1998 by the American Psychological Association, in a majority of cases involving boys, outcomes ranged from neutral to positive.

    So you are correct that an entire paradigm shift needs to occur in how we deal with this issue. Stopping the harm to the very persons whom the draconian laws are supposed to protect would be a very good start.

    In the war on drugs the goods traded are drugs, and the federal government has arguably created the market conditions which have allowed the big drugs cartels, which have created countless and countless victims, besides those using the drugs.
    In the war on pedophilia the goods traded are not chemicals, in the war on pedophilia the goods traded are children, and it pains me to see that again the federal government, with their strong morals and weak reasoning, are creating a market to be exploited by the worst, creating exactly what they proclaim to be fighting against.

    Pedophiles exist, there are depending on study from 1% to 25% of the male population who can be labeled pedophiles, stigmatizing, marginalizing and excluding them from the rest of society is exactly what nurtures and fosters this market.
    A war on a quarter of the adult male population can never ever succeed, we just have to be happy they haven’t unionized and responded in kind.

    There are many many studies which show show harm after sexual abuse, what these studies are less good at showing is the portion of harm coming from “abuse” at the hands of a pedophile, compared to the abuse at the hands from the rest of society, police, therapists, peers.

    And of course, it is very clear that despite media and political difficulties with understanding what words mean, the wast majority of those who are sentenced for sexual abuse of children are not actually pedophiles, they are heteros with sexual issues or problems.
    US statistics say that 20% of those sentenced with sexual offenses against children can be “diagnosed with pedophilia”, similar numbers come from Europe.
    Read that again, 1/5 of the presumed pedophiles are actually pedophiles according to the experts. The war on pedophilia doesn’t even hit the pedophiles, there are 5 times as many heteros caught, and of course multiply the collateral damage.

    A dirty secret of the campaigners is also that a large part of the producers as well as consumers of child pornography are not these vile dirty old men that everyone knows about, a large part are children themselves, because unlike official dogma, children do have a sexuality, and they experiment with their sexuality where they feel safe and comfortable to do so, that is online on chats and social media.
    The Internet Watch Foundation released a report where they had to admit that a substantial volume of “child abuse images” were produced by the “victims” themselves. What kind of insanity is it when a kid is a victim for taking a nude picture of himself, or masturbating, and where this is punished with possibly life sentence on the sex offender registry to protect said “victim”?
    Current policies are not just a mistake, nor a failure like the war on drugs, they are an unmitigated disaster for millions of individuals, children, youth, adults, families.
