Pedophilia Being Promoted as the Next “Sexual Right”


By:  David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, September 30, 2015


   With the Supreme Court's final acceptance of homosexual marriage, pedophilia - or sexual intercourse with children under twelve years of age - is emerging as the next “sexual rights” revolution in the socially progressive United States.

   Recently, published an op/ed by a self-described pedophile asking Americans to “learn to accept” pedophiles and be “understanding and supportive” of their “sexual orientation.”


   “So, please, be understanding and supportive,” pedophile Todd Nickerson wrote. “It’s really all we ask of you.”

   He blamed his “sexual preference” on his brain while asserting he’s “not a monster.”

   “In essence, your brain knows what it likes and isn’t going to take no for an answer,” Nickerson continued. “For that reason, the nature or nurture question with respect to sexual preference is ultimately irrelevant — it becomes all but hardwired soon enough, until it’s all you know, and it’s self-reinforcing, no matter how much you wish to dig it out.”

   Kitt Daniels, from pointed out in a recent article that,  “numerous political commentators predicted that pedophiles would try to hijack the June 26 Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriages to argue that they too are ‘suffering’ discrimination over their 'normal' sexual orientation.”

   “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,” wrote Jack Minor for the Northern Colorado Gazette.

   Minor also added that “psychiatrists are now beginning to advocate redefining pedophilia in the same way homosexuality was redefined several years ago.”

   Daniels points out this trend began in 1998 when the American Psychiatric Association claimed 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.”

   And in 2014 Margo Kaplan, an assistant law professor at Rutgers University, argued in favor of civil rights for pedophiles in an op/ed published by the New York Times. “Arguing for the rights of scorned and misunderstood groups is never popular, particularly when they are associated with real harm, but the fact that pedophilia is so despised is precisely why our responses to it, in criminal justice and mental health, have been so inconsistent and counterproductive,” she claimed.

   “Sexual rights are not human rights, and they are not enshrined in international human rights law; our use of this term does not reflect a view that they are part of customary international law,” said Richard Erdman, a deputy U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, during a meeting of the U.N. Women's Agency. “It is, however, a critical expression of our support for the rights and dignity of all individuals regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.”

    While most states still vigorously prosecute “child porn” crimes, many of which are as benign as possessing pictures of nude children with no physical contact by the perpetrator, the rush to be politically correct and all-inclusive is apt to force a sea-change to these laws the same way the public opposition to homosexuality was successfully quashed, using the same exact arguments that the U.S. Supreme Court recently accepted and endorsed.

   But, sexual deviants will not stop there.  After pedophilia is both normalized and legalized there is but one group left to argue for their sexual rights.  The road to sexual deviancy ends in a barnyard.
