These pedophiles are stealing our schtick. As you may have heard, the push is on to get pedophilia removed the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
This should recall shades of the 70’s era gay rights movement when teaming hordes of pissy homosexuals crashed APA conferences and demanded that their sexuality be legitimized. They pioneered the tactic of threatening and shouting down anyone who opposed them. It took a few years of bullying psychiatrists but they eventually relented and removed same-sex attraction disorder (SSAD) from the DSM. Thank goodness.
These days, we’ve got the APA stuffed to the gills with LGBTQXYZ advocates who masquerade as non-partisan professionals. Many of them are homosexuals themselves! And as we know, homosexuals have no ax to grind in the homosexuality debate. Their research is in no way tainted by the fact that they are, themselves, practitioners of the same sexual proclivities that they’re studying with a dispassionate and unbiased eye. The APA even endorsed marriage equality…unanimously!
If these pedophiles are smart, they’ll do the same thing. When you stack the field with people who already agree with you, “the experts” will always be on your side. They will write papers, publish books, and conduct experiments that all come to your predetermined conclusions!
It appears that the child molesting community has since discovered that they may need to take a similar course of action if they’re ever going to remove the stigma associated with raping little children. Once the psychiatric community decides that your behavior no longer constitutes a mental disorder, the flood gates are open! Not that I support that. I mean, child molesters are bad. And stuff.
B4U-ACT, a Maryland-based organization of psychiatric practitioners, recently sponsored a conference that addressed the issue of how to destigmatize pedophilia. The conference was attended by Christofascist loser Matt Barber of the fringe right-wing Liberty Counsel Action. Any group that would take offense at a pedophilia conference is obviously a hate group. I checked the Southern Poverty Law Center website to see if these people have yet been identified as a hate group, and I they aren’t. But they should be.
Right-wing bigot Matt Barber says that he felt he was “on another planet”. Speakers at the conference openly endorsed the removal of pedophilia from the DSM. Said Barber:
“The entire focus of the event was on the victimhood of the pedophile.”
Well, yeah. I’ve heard that all of the hate that society heaps on child molesters really makes them feel bad. Somebody has to stand up for them. Leave it up to Barber to malign this group for the crime of compassion. Only a real douchebag would fault these caring professionals for trying to remove the stigma associated with pedophilia. I say we charge Barber with murder if any child molesters end up killing themselves because of the shame bigots thrust upon them.
I wanted to find out more about this group so I sought out their website. Yes, they have one: http://b4uact.org/
Even though homosexuality and pedophilia bear no relation to each other–and the societal acceptance of the former will have no effect on the societal acceptance of the latter–the organization seems to be using the gay rights movement as a precedent. Odd. Dr. Fred Berlin, as quoted on their website:
“Just as has been the case historically with homosexuality, society is currently addressing the matter of pedophilia with a balance that is far more heavily weighted on the side of criminal justice solutions than on the side of mental health solutions.”
Just has been the case with homosexuality? Whoa! There’s no comparison there. It’s almost as if homosexuality is paving the way for all sorts of other perversions to become normalized, something that I insisted would never happen. Well, I can forgive Dr. Berlin in this instance because I know that he’s not a Christofascist who would try to use the linkage as a weapon against us.
B4U-ACT appeals to the child molesters directly:
“You may be looking for mental health services to deal with anxiety, depression, anger, or other factors either unrelated to your sexuality or resulting from society’s stereotypes and reactions to your sexual feelings.”
Yes, society has a lot of stereotypes about child molesters. Like that they’re sick, for example. And once we remove pedophilia as a sickness from the DSM, it just won’t be a sickness anymore. Anyone who still claims that it’s a sickness will be a science-hater. And you don’t want to be a science-hater…do you? Psychiatrists who still diagnose and treat pedophilia as a sickeness will have their licenses revoked. In other words, we’ll just do to them what we’ve done to people who still believe that homosexuality is a mental disorder. It worked like gangbusters for us, so why not?
I’m sure that child molesters also deal with a lot of depression and anger as a result of society’s deep-rooted prejudices. As a victim of such prejudices myself, I can attest to the pain of not being validated. That’s what I desire more than anything else. I need people to tell me over and over again that my sexual behavior is healthy, normal, and beautiful.
The idea that someone, somewhere, is harboring the slightest disapproval of what I do is enough to make me want to kill myself. That’s why we need to police the beliefs of others and punish free speech–so that fragile people like me won’t off themselves. I threaten to kill myself at the drop of a hat. Just this morning I had to call the suicide hotline after I got out of bed and saw that the sky was cloudy. Every time I don’t get my way I tell my opponent that he’s murdering gay people with his mean attitudes.
Does anyone know the suicide rate for child molesters? It must be astronomically high. There’s only one way to lower that statistic and that’s a full-court press propaganda campaign to push pedophilia into the mainstream. It has to be everywhere, at all times, loud, and in your face.
The appeal to child molesters continues:
“Or you may be wondering how to live life fully and stay within the law.”
See? So they want to help child piddlers stay within the law. We certainly wouldn’t want them to get in trouble. That’s the concern, not the safety of children, and certainly not the immorality of having sex with minors.
And when you think about it, laws can be changed. When the National Coalition of Gay Organizations laid out its platform at its 1972 convention, they specifically demanded the “Repeal of all laws governing the age of consent.” Looking back on the historic document, I can see that they’ve achieved almost everything on their to-do list. Only a few items–such as the abolition of age of consent laws–still remain to be done.
In Britain, the rainbow brigades have succeeded in lowering the age of consent for homosexual relations from twenty-one to eighteen, then again from eighteen to sixteen. Peter Tatchell of Britain’s OutRage! group is now pressing for fourteen as the age of consent for both homosexual and heterosexual relations. And who knows if they’ll be finished then? Eleven sounds pretty good. How about eight?
Incrimentalism is a wonderful thing. Society would never swallow the whole turd if we force-fed it to them in one bite, so let’s spoon it to them one morsel at a time.
As you can see, “staying within the law” is kind of moving target. All we have to do is change the law and it becomes much easier for these people to “live life fully” while staying within it.
Let’s get on it!
This just in: As I’ve read further about this organization, it’s come to my attention that the operations director of B4U-ACT, Richard Kramer, is a self-described “boy lover”. He has written a wonderful letter to the editor of a pro-pedophilia organization, yearning for the good old days of the 1970’s when there wasn’t such an unthinking kneejerk reaction to men having sex with boys. He uses the word “we” when speaking of BL’s (boy lovers) and GL’s (girl lovers).
“The fundamental issue we need to address is the defense of our humanity. We need to confront the stigmatization, demonization, and stereotyping that exists due simply to our attraction to children or adolescents, regardless of our behavior. To do this, we need to be honest about our sexuality.”
I am not surprised. Not in the least. If there’s one thing that Kramer learned well from the example gays have bequethed him, it’s that opposition to your agenda can best be combatted by infiltrating the opposing camp and neutralizing them from the inside. That’s how we dealt with the APA when they called our sexuality a pathology, and now he’s trying it as well. With any luck, he’ll soon be infilitrating the schools and churches.
