Gay activists are absurdly trying to argue that homosexual pedophilia is not homosexuality at all. It’s just plain old pedophilia, and the sex of the perpetrator and the victim have nothing to do with it.
This is perhaps the most absurd attempt to get homosexuals off the hook for their wildly exaggerated rate of child sexual abuse. The dictionary itself defines a “homosexual” this way: “a person who is sexually attracted to people of their own sex.” An adult male is attracted to a male child, he is “sexually attracted to (someone) of (his) own sex.” Case closed. We’re not going to let homosexual activists get away with such ridiculous verbal gymnastics.
The mere fact that they are resorting to such a linguistic sleight of hand means they know that facts, history and research are not on their side. It’s admission of guilt. So they are now making this utterly lame attempt to try to hide the facts from the American public through obfuscation.
A study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior in 1988 reported on the medical records of male sex offenders who had been admitted to the Minnesota Security Hospital between 1975 and 1984. The relevant finding: “Eighty-six percent of offenders against males described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.”
- “A homosexual daycare worker has been accused of molesting dozens of children in his charge. He and his male ‘spouse’ are also accused of possession of child pornography generated from the abuse, which was reportedly distributed internationally through internet pedophile networks.
- “‘Robert M.’, as he is identified by police, is a 27-year-old Lithuanian who reportedly moved to the Netherlands in 2004 and ‘married’ his homosexual partner, a Dutch citizen, in 2008, receiving his own Dutch citizenship as a result.
- “He worked in at least two Dutch daycare centers from 2007 to 2010, and offered his services privately over the internet, claiming he was a ‘trained and experienced’ babysitter. Police say they are continuing to investigate M’s contacts with children, which also extended to a stint as a volunteer in an African orphanage. The estimated tally of victims currently stands at 53.
- “Also under arrest is M’s homosexual ‘husband,’ 37-year-old ‘Richard Van O,’ who was reportedly found with child pornography in his possession. The couple was reportedly in the process of adopting a child (emphasis added).”
One lesson from this story: for the sake of our children, we should screen out homosexuals who want to immigrate to the United States. It’s the least we can do for the youngest and most vulnerable among us.
Bottom line: homosexuals do molest children at staggeringly higher rates than heterosexuals. Despite comprising two to three percent of the population, they are responsible for 33% of all child sex offenses. This is not a lifestyle that any sane society should endorse – whether in the military or out of it.
