Kinsey's kooky shrinks

Has the clergy sex-abuse and cover-up scandal made you angry? Better save up some indignation for a more far-reaching scandal in other professions: Psychiatrists and professors are lobbying to normalize and decriminalize pedophilia (child rape and molestation).
You heard right. The movement to legitimize pedophiles has been gathering steam for some time. In the late 1980s, for example, during the two years I spent as principal investigator for a U.S. Department of Justice study on "Images of Children, Crime and Violence" in mainstream pornography, my research team encountered a stable of paid pornography agents we dubbed "Academic Pedophile Apologists."
Like carnival hawkers, these Academic Pedophile Apologists – college professors, psychiatrists and other mental-health professionals – have served as advisers, writers and "expert" witnesses, telling medical, academic, public school, court and government authorities that the barbaric pedophile crimes of child sexual abuse are harmless and, some said, beneficial.
Now, things have gone so far downhill that this May, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) was walking the Academic Pedophile Apologist tightrope, actually publicly debating a proposal for "Lifting [The] Pedophilia Taboo."
Several APA presenters "proposed removing … pedophilia, exhibitionism … voyeurism … from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)." The DSM – the bible of the mental-health field – tells psychiatrists, judges, juries and the rest of the world what is or is not abnormal human behavior, and what to criminally "punish" versus what to therapeutically "treat."
Meanwhile, these sexperts on "treatment" are meeting at the University of Indiana's Kinsey Institute (long seen as a circus side-show) July 11-19 for two big sex confabs. The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development is lavishing $26,000 on a Kinsey "conference on sexual arousal" to develop "guidelines for ... measurement of sexual response." The NICHHD seems unconcerned that "measurement of sexual response" was Alfred Kinsey's exact excuse for unleashing a gang of his favorite pedophiles to "measure" orgasms on "hysterically weeping," convulsing and fainting children – who Kinsey argued, "enjoyed" the "experience."
July 16, after the arousal sexperts wrap up, the International Academy of Sex Research (IASR) will gather, also emceed by Kinsey Institute director Dr. John Bancroft. Bancroft's credentials include a British accent, employed to suavely bury the horrifying truth about the rapes and sexual torture of 317 to possibly 2,035 infants and children by Institute founder Alfred Kinsey's sex "researchers" in the late 1940s.
Joining Bancroft on the podium will be Theo Sandfort, the IASR president and Scientific Program Committee chairman. Sandfort's qualifications include having been a well-known member of the editorial board of Paidika, the Journal of Paedophila. Sandfort shares this dubious editorial honor with Kinsey Institute conference keynoter Verne Bullough, as well as Bill Andriette, the editor of The NAMBLA (The North American Man-Boy Love Association) Bulletin. The journal editors wrote in 1987, "The starting point of Paidika is necessarily our consciousness of ourselves as paedophiles."
Paidika pledged to advance "paedophile … consciousness" as "a legitimate and productive part of the totality of human experience." Paidika's regular graphic ads for NAMBLA clearly illustrate the sexual component of what they euphemistically call "man-boy-love."
Again, in his 1991 book "Male Intergenerational Intimacy," IASR President Sandfort maintained that neither he nor the other book authors view "man-boy relationships as necessarily pathological." Now, just as sex guru Dr. Kinsey turns out to be a certifiable sexual psychopath, anyone who believes that sex professors are just objective, high-minded intellectuals has never attended a sex conference.
I recall the sex orgy reports among "sexperts" during the formal sex conferences I attended (after their "critiquing" of hours of pornographic films). At one sex conference in Wales, all of the attendees signed a letter of protest when our Welsh cleaning staff refused to work if child molesters were allowed to academically pontificate on "pedophile rights" and studies. If "sex arousal" research is funded by NICHHD, a federal child welfare agency, how many pedophiles at this Kinsey Institute sex bash will quietly imitate their founder and initiate similar studies of child "sexual response measurements"?
Every American parent and grandparent had best beware the sinister plans of leaders in the American Psychiatric Association, the Kinsey Institute and their many clones. This class of "sexperts" is transforming sexual fictions into crippling sexual "facts." An international caravan of Academic Pedophile Apologists are on the march – and your children are their targets.
