From the "You've Got To Be Effin' Kidding Me!" Dept.
This just in: apparently child molestation is a actually an intimate form of "mentoring."
New book promotes sex with children
Ph.D. 'expert' claims pederasty good for 'nurturing,' 'mentoring' young boys
"Same-Sex Desire and Love in Greco-Roman Antiquity and in the Classical Tradition of the West" features "scholarly" treatises by a raft of mostly-PhD academics, all praising earlier civilizations – particularly Greece and Rome – for the role homosexuality played in those ancient cultures.
In the chapter titled "Pederasty: An Integration of Cross-Cultural, Cross-Species, and Empirical Data," Bruce Rind Ph.D. lauds the rampant child molestation that reportedly occurred in those societies, at one point citing evolution as supporting a pro-pedophilia worldview.
Just for reference:
Mentor: "To serve as a trusted counselor or teacher to (another person)." Uh, yeah.
This is what passes for academic insight in our institutions of higher learning. W.T.F!?
There is sooooo much more legitimate research out there that shows almost incontrovertibly how emotionally/psychologically destructive it is to pre-sexualize a young child. It has far-reaching impacts well into adulthood. It leads to repressed feelings of shame, confusion in dealing with normal developmental sexual issues, and other manifestations to include depression and suicide. So how can someone, with a straight face, present this "academic treatise" as anything other than agenda-driven drivel? And these "authors" feel free to publish this crap without any fear of recrimination, or peril to their jobs.
To me, this is a failure to protect our children. Why do we need to have registries of sex offenders if this behavior is so "healthy?"
(I actually hesitated to post this, for fear of what it will do to this site in the search engines. But hey, traffic is traffic, right?)
