Child porn could benefit society as “Potential sex offenders use child pornography as a substitute for sex against children.” Professor Milton Diamond with University of Hawaii and a ‘distinguished lecturer’ at the IASHS (Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality) in San Francisco.
Psychology is starting to accept that pedophilia is a sexual orientation like homosexuality and heterosexuality. When this movement and the movement of children’s rights are combined the understanding of the professors mindset becomes clear.
The children’s rights movement is the idea of allowing children at very young ages make their own choice about their lifestyle and healthcare.
On the merging of pedophilia and child pornography, Linda Harvey of Mission America… “There have been blips on this in the United States for the last decade…We will see this trend accelerate as homosexual, transgender and ‘children’s rights’ intersect.”
Further understanding is obtained by looking at the IASHS. The IASHS actively promoted repealing a ban on homosexuals serving in the military.
The IASHS identifies “basic sexual rights” which include:
- “the right to engage in sexual acts or activities of any kind whatsoever, providing they do not involve nonconsensual acts, violence, constraint, coercion or fraud.”
- “be free of persecution, condemnation, discrimination, or societal intervention in private sexual behavior” and “the freedom of any sexual thought, fantasy or desire.”
- “the freedom of any sexual thought, fantasy or desire.”
- None should be “disadvantaged because of their age.”
The problem with this is “What is the definition of consent… When a person says they agree to something that implies consent and the trend is to expand that definition to children in sexual matters.” This opens the door for exploitation by pedophiles, according to Linda Harvey.
”Gay rights groups are attempting to open up sexuality to children at younger ages. There are also gay community centers around the country that accept children as young as 10 or 11 without parental consent.”
