Slate asks, “Should we lower the age of consent to protect children?” No kidding, their words.
Lowering the age of consent to 15 (where it stands in Sweden) or 14 (where it’s set in Germany and Italy) would “take these enormous pressures off children and young people” who feel they need to hide their sexual activity, said John Ashton, president of the UK Faculty of Public Health. Concern over running afoul of the law prevents sexually active teenagers from seeking help from adults when they need it, Ashton said. The policy shift would better empower teachers and other supervising adults to provide sexual health education and contraception access to 14- and 15-year-old students. Said Ashton: “They are doing it, and we need to be able to support them and protect them.”
Over at my favorite conservative Allen West’s site, Ashley Edwardson points out no sooner did the Supreme Court rule on gay marriage, than pedophiles made the case they should be protected too.
In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. A group of psychiatrists with B4U-Act recently held a symposium proposing a new definition of pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders of the APA.
B4U-Act calls pedophiles “minor-attracted people.” The organization’s website states its purpose is to, “help mental health professionals learn more about attraction to minors and to consider the effects of stereotyping, stigma and fear.”
In 1998 The APA issued a report claiming “that 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.”
You cannot explain to a rabbit why the young should not be exposed to sex whenever they can be. Long ago, the last rabbit who thought children should be protected was culled – out-reproduced by the rabbits who would mate with anything. What remained after his type’s demise was a hive mind that accepted a certain evil, not as acceptable but as normal. Indeed, to such a hive, our version of normal is evil and oppressive. Those children want molestation – molestation is good for them, because it makes them like the hive, so that they can enjoy molesting children when they reach adulthood. You do want the children to be like the hive and be happy, don’t you?
Liberals are the r-strategists within our population. They are programmed with every urge we find repulsive, from betrayal of comrades, to sexualizing children. Given long enough, and enough free resources, pedophilia would be normalized, just as the once reviled homosexuality suddenly was forced upon a society which still finds it repulsive overall. Oppose pedophilia, and they will try to make society castigate you as the evil one.
It won’t get to that, of course. The coming resource restriction will herald the rise of the K-selected wolves. Once that occurs, all that these calls for normalizing pedophilia will do is give the wolves clear moral justification to do what they were going to do anyway – to all the rabbits.
It is our job now to make sure these things are kept at the forefront of our society’s collective mind. We don’t want anyone to forget.
