In a Valentine’s Day session of the Canadian parliament discussing mandatory minimum prison sentences for child sex offenders, a psychology expert told members that pedophiles cannot change their sexual preference for children because pedophilia is a “sexual orientation” comparable to homosexuality or heterosexuality.
“Pedophiles … are grappling with what is equivalent to a sexual orientation just like another individual may be grappling with heterosexuality or even homosexuality. True pedophiles have an exclusive preference for children, which is the same as having a sexual orientation. You cannot change this person’s sexual orientation.”—Dr. Hubert Van Gijseghem, psychologist and retired professor at the University of Montreal
Dr. Vernon Quinsey, professor emeritus of psychology at Queen’s University, agreed with Van Gijseghem. He told members that pedophiles cannot be rehabilitated through incarceration and will go on molesting children once they are out of jail.
[Pedophiles] “prefer prepubescent children. There is no evidence that this sort of preference can be changed through treatment or through anything else.”
Labeling pedophilia as a sexual orientation rather than a mental disorder opens the door for normalization just like it did in 1973 for homosexuality. Once normalized, pedophiles will follow in the footsteps of homosexuals and use the rubric of sexual diversity to obtain social acceptance of their lifestyle and the legal right to express their “love.”
“Pederasty, like homosexuality, has existed, and exists, in all societies … Men and youths have always been attracted to each other, and, like homosexuality in general, their love is irrepressible.”—David Thorstad, NAMBLA Director
Mirroring the homosexual radicals from the 1960s sexual revolution, pedophiles are organized and committed to fight the “hate and bigotry” of those who oppose their lifestyle. Their goal is to end the extreme oppression of men and boys in mutually consensual relationships by:
· building understanding and support for such relationships;
· educating the general public on the benevolent nature of man/boy love;
· cooperating with lesbian, gay, feminist, and other liberation movements;
· supporting the liberation of persons of all ages from sexual prejudice and oppression.
As this nation continues its slide into the morass of sexual diversity, the psychiatric establishment’s definition of mental illness will change and so will its values-laden concepts regarding acceptable sexual behavior.
