Pity The Poor ‘Born That Way’ Pedophile!

Pedophilia is the Latest 'Orientation'

By William M Briggs Published on June 18, 2018

There stands Mirjam Heine center stage.* She smiles as the TEDx Talk audience greets her at the University of Wurzberg. But this is the wrong emotion. For she is here to tell us something horrible, something heartrending — something that should not be.

She forces the smile into exile and begins to emote. Without a word her now sad eyes tell us she is feeling great pain. We want to share this pain.

She begins to speak. Each word seeps out softly. Her calculated poignancy is of a doctor telling a wife her husband is about to die.

“Let me you about Jonas. … Jonas has a secret he can’t share with anyone. Not even with his best friend. … He is just too afraid of anger, rejection, and repulsion.”

Heine does not cry, but she searches the eyes of the audience for the waterworks she so desperately wants to cause.

What is Jonas’s terrible secret?

He wants to diddle young girls.

Love Is Love

Heine reads her lines as if she is Juliet looking at Romeo’s corpse. She is heartbroken, and she wants you heartbroken too, over the awful truth that Jonas knows “that there will never be a loving and fulfilling partnership that he can enter. Because Jonas is a pedophile. He’s only attracted to female children between the ages of six and twelve years.”

It was bound to happen. Once we began identifying ourselves as our sexual desires — you are not a man but a “gay” or a “straight” or one of dozens of other “orientations” — it was only a matter of time before every sexual desire got its own “rights” and in the same way.

The implication that Jonas ought to have a loving partnership that he can enter is unspoken. Love is love. Can we, as a society, bar this poor man, this good man, this pitiable soul from experiencing love?

Of course, Jonas’s love would have him dragging little girls behind the woodshed and providing them with loving experiences they weren’t biologically meant to have. But love is love, and isn’t love all you need?

Born That Way

Heine says — are you listening? pay attention here — that pedophilia is a “sexual orientation.” It is, she says, an unchangeable sexual orientation.

Heine claims “one to two percent” of men, or about 60 million men worldwide, are pedophiles. That’s a lot of folks who can never find love. There are so many child lovers that, she says, every audience members must know one. “Anybody can be born a pedophile.” Born.

Don’t confuse pedophilia with child molestation. “What percentage of child molesters are pedophiles? … Only twenty to thirty percent of all child molesters are pedophiles.” But that’s the wrong statistic. What we want is the percentage of pedophiles that molest children. Heine never tells us.

Here Come The Judge

The laws exploding across the West baring “discrimination” against “sexual orientation” apply. How can you discriminate against a pedophile when he applies for a job at the child care center? Pedophilia is an “orientation.” Science says so. Discrimination against “orientation” is illegal.

Hey, don’t worry. This pedophile says he’s never touched a child. He just has desires. He has no choice. Neither do you. You must hire him.

Do you think that will never happen? Want to bet?

Open Up

Heine thinks that if we’re more accepting of pedophilia, that if we allow and even welcome those who claim to be pedophiles, we’ll see less child abuse. It’s the occult pedophile who abuses, not the open one who volunteers to take your kid on a scouting trip.

“We shouldn’t increase the suffering of pedophiles by excluding them, by blaming and mocking them.” Heine says if pedophilia were open we could better discourage them from abusing children.

How? The taboos against child sexual abuse are already known to all, even to pedophiles. The punishment is harsh. Prison life is not good for child sexual abusers. Would making pedophilia socially acceptable really boost deterrence beyond these measures?

Heine says it would. Because if we knew who the pedophiles were, we could drug them. The drugs would quash their sexual urges.

Yeah. Sure. That will fly.

Same Old Story

If Heine’s arguments do not seem familiar, they ought to. Heine cribbed her script from the “gay” “rights” movement. She had only to substitute “pedophilia” for “homosexuality.”

It was bound to happen. Once we began identifying ourselves as our sexual desires — you are not a man but a “gay” or a “straight” or one of dozens of other “orientations” — it was only a matter of time before every sexual desire got its own “rights” and in the same way.

Heine began at “anger and disgust” over pedophilia, but her “perspective [was] completely changed” after she heard of Jonas’s “cruel fate.”

It took between thirty and forty years for homosexuality to turn from revulsion to Pride. It took Heine only a fraction of the time for her conversion. How long will it take us?

    Children cannot consent. This makes your entire article moot.

    • Andy6M

      There are movements to lower consent laws, and there are efforts to show that children are sexual enough at any age to make the decision. But before that, the article is certainly not moot, but timely – the same arguments used for changing laws to normalize homosexuality can be used for normalizing any other “sexual orientation”. Why wouldn’t consent laws fall before the juggernaut of sexual liberty as other laws have?

      • Jacob Miller

        >> There are movements to lower consent laws

        Are talking about the hyper conservative religious groups that believe in child brides?

      • Jacob Miller

        >> the same arguments used for changing laws to normalize homosexuality can be used for normalizing any other “sexual orientation”.

        I’m not sure why you think this. One of the central arguments for legalizing gay marriage is “they aren’t hurting anybody.”

        One can’t say that about pedophiles.

        • JP

          Honosexuals have hurt a lot of families, friends and themselves.

          • John Connor

            Uneducated opinion

          • JP

            No. Based on facts.

          • John Connor

            yawn…..

          • True Faith

            Facts are boring? Typical.

          • John Connor

            Laughable.

          • True Faith

            Uneducated? Do your research: 2% of the population commit 40% of child molestation. “Sex before 8 or it’s too late”, remember now?

          • John Connor

            You’re thinking of pedophiles, not homosexuals

        • Andy6M

          You’re right – that is one of the arguments, and I’m glad you agree that pedophiles can’t claim that. However, born this way, can’t change, it’s normal, deserve the right to love who my heart loves, are all used as well and could be potentially, though sickeningly, claimed. And despite our agreement on the harm, there are those making the argument that it need not be considered harmful if the child is consenting (which the calim is made, that they should be considered mature enough to be able to).

          • John Connor

            Nope. Pedophila is harmful. Two same sex adults harm no one by being in love.

          • Alice Cheshire

            Nope, only because we tell the kids that. WE harm the kids, not the act.

          • Ye Olde Statistician

            Well, they have diverted a huge amount of medical research away from cancer, heart disease, and other maladies. That may have harmed someone. For that matter, they may have harmed themselves through disease.

        • Alice Cheshire

          Sure they can. Anyone can claim children are only harmed because WE told them relations with kids are wrong and WE can change it. Heck, we had “Heather has Two Mommies”. Why can’t Heather have a sugar daddy with whom she share relations. It’s what you preach to the kids when we are talking situational ethics, which you are.

        • Ye Olde Statistician

          man-boy love was a major attraction for the Stonewall bar. The men were called ‘chickenhawks’ the boys were called ‘chickens’

          but all of it involves ‘sex,’ not ‘love.’

        • Vincent J.

          Accepting homosexual activity and marriage will bring down God’s wrath. That definitely hurts a community.

      • John Connor

        Pure histrionics and laughable at best.
        Homosexuality is a normal variant of human sexuality.

        • Andy6M

          Sure John Connor – you keep telling yourself that.

        • JP

          If “Homosexuality is a normal variant of human sexuality” then why does it lead to so much sickness and death for those who practice it?

        • Alice Cheshire

          If gay is normal, so are relations with children. They are either both variants or neither is.

          • John Connor

            Nope. Shows your lack of understanding. One is between two adults and consensual and o e is between a child and an adult and not consensual. Keep trying

          • NellieIrene

            You are the one who is lacking understanding. Alice is writing about the orientation itself. Not the legality of pedophilia or the ability of one party to give an informed consent. If homosexuals feel they are born that way AND pedophiles feel they are born that way AND you are calling homosexual orientation a “normal variant of human sexuality” then pedophilia would fit that bill as well. After all, they both exist in nature.

          • John Connor

            Nothing normal about the abuse of children. You have a warped view of things.

          • NellieIrene

            The definition of normal is something that conforms to a standard. Usual, average, typical. So both homosexuality and pedophilia would qualify within that “normal variant of human sexuality” you keep parroting about all over this board. And, sadly, child abuse would be considered normal, since it also occurs quite regularly within the human family.

            Of course homosexuality is, in reality, a perversion of human sexuality, because we are not designed to be sexually with out own gender. Just as pedophilia is a perversion of human sexuality, because we are not born sexually mature. But “keep trying.”

          • John Connor

            Purely uneducated opinion. Child abuse isn’t normal. You need to educate yourself about this.

          • NellieIrene

            I gave you the dictionaries definition of normal. And according to the dictionaries definition child abuse is normal. Please. Educate me. How do you define “normal”. And how does it differ from the dictionaries definition.

          • John Connor

            No child abuse is normal. What reality are you from?

          • NellieIrene

            I gave you the chance to “educate” me. And yet you chose to self-righteously virtue signal once again with your repetitive statement that “child abuse isn’t normal.” You do realize there is a difference between what is normal, i.e. it exists within the human family, and whether it’s existence is good, or moral or right? Don’t you?

          • John Connor

            Yes and child abuse is not normal. Virtue signal?? Lol! Just made up nonsense.

          • NellieIrene

            You clearly don’t know the difference or you wouldn’t have been redundant. You would have told me why child abuse would not be considered normal. So. Again. Please educate me. What is your definition of normal and how does it differ from the dictionaries definition. If you are redundant again, I will know it is because you are unable to come up with an effective counter argument.

            All words and phrases are “made up” to describe a particular thing. In your case, your self-righteousness at believing that because I call child abuse normal, because it exists in the human family, that means I believe it is good that it is normal.

          • John Connor

            Child abuse is not normal.

          • NellieIrene

            jAgain. What is your definition of normal and how does it differ from the dictionaries definition.

          • John Connor

            Again, child abuse is abnormal

          • NellieIrene

            Fortunately there are more children who live lives free from abuse. So saying child abuse is abnormal would be correct. Abnormal is something that deviates from the usual and typical. Ergo logic dictates that homosexuality and pedophilia are also abnormal.

          • John Connor

            Not at all. Homosexuality is completely different than pedophilia where harm and abuse occur.

          • NellieIrene

            Your statement about harm and abuse occuring in pedophilia is of course true. Children are not physically or emotionally equipped for sex.
            But that does not change the fact that both fit the definition of abnormal. Neither are the usual or the typical. And both are deviations from what we are designed for.

          • John Connor

            Homosexuality is a normal variant of human sexuality.

          • NellieIrene

            You are being redundant again. As I said If you are redundant, it is because you are unable to come up with an effective counter argument. And after reviewing our thread. I was right. God Bless.

          • John Connor

            No need for counter argument. Your point that child abuse is normal is pure nonsense. sad

          • NellieIrene

            There is a need for “counter argument” because if you contend that “child abuse is not normal” you must also accede that homosexuality is not normal.

          • John Connor

            Not at all. Homosexuality is a normal variant of human sexuality. Nothing normal about pedophilia. Takes consenting adults to have sex. Children cannot consent. Gays harm no one when they are together yet the whole of what pedophilia is, is related to harm. Not normal.

          • NellieIrene

            What is your definition of “normal” and how does it differ from the dictionaries definition of normal?

          • John Connor

            Child abuse and pedophilia are not normal.

          • Vincent J.

            When I hear or read “normal” or “abnormal,” I think of math, a bell curve. Anything which is in the middle 80% is normal. The ten percent which is at each end is abnormal.

            Some people are born with a slightly different brain architecture. Some want to abuse drugs. Some abuse alcohol. Some are adrenalin junkies. Having a predisposition toward something wrong means God has allowed you to have a particular cross to bear. You are meant to resist doing wrong regardless of what you feel.

          • NellieIrene

            I agree with you on both of your points. We are born sinners. What plagues one may not plague another. But they are all to be resisted. And thankfully they can be with the Holy Spirit.

            Normal is something that is usual. Something that is most common. But the way the agenda driven LGBT and their cohorts in the APA use it, it means something that has existed in nature over time. Which, technically would be correct. Homosexuality has existed over time and will continue to do so until Christ returns. Therefore it is a common and usual thing in that sense. But there is a whole host of undesirable things that occur in nature as well, so if one uses it in the later sense then one must accept the other things as normal too. That’s why, if you have seen Mr Connor and my exchange, he is unable to launch a counter argument. So he has to keep echoing his one little talking point.

          • Vincent J.

            “Which, technically would be correct. Homosexuality has existed over time….”

            They don’t see homosexual tendencies as they should: It’s a congenital defect much like Downs syndrome or a cleft palate, both of which have existed over time, and both of which are seen fairly often.

            Everybody is given a cross to bear, fleshly lusts which God expects us to resist. Declaring that sin is not sin is not the answer. They have been blinded by their father, satan, so arguing or debating is useless. The only thing which can touch them is divine intervention, so we should be praying for them.

          • Susan Ford Keller

            Hmm…. so where do homosexual pedophiles fit in your equation? Like the guy who was the puppeteer for Elmo on Sesame Street or Kevin Spacey? Remember, teens under 18 are off limits to all people 18 and over, no matter what other sexual orientation they are.

          • John Connor

            I never said there weren’t homosexual pedos. I said that the two have no connection with each other.

          • Susan Ford Keller

            Hahahahahaha!

          • John Connor

            Witty response.

      Don’t need consent.

    • Jay Champagne

      Currently, there is a biopic out celebrating Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the most powerful women in the world, and a hero of the American Left. She is also an outspoken proponent of drastically lowering the age of legal consent.

      • John Connor

        You should do your own research. That was debunked in 10 seconds. Look and think for yourself

        • Jay Champagne

          “Sex bias in the U.S. Code” by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, page 102.

          • John Connor

            Read it my friend. She NEVER advocated for lowering the age of consent. It’s just another lie perpetuated by people like yourself.

  • Jacob Miller

    How can anyone write an article on normalizing pedophilia without mentioning the enthusiastic support of accused-pedophile Roy Moore?

    • Alice Cheshire

      They aren’t obssessed with political untruths as some people are.

    • I have yet to see a claim that Roy Moore was ever noted as being attracted to prepubescent children. If you have details that nobody else has seen, please feel free to share.
      And people can be accused of anything. Why, the Mueller team recently indicted a Russian company that didn’t exist of attempting to influence the US elections.

    • MB

      Nice redirection! Well played! However, while that doesn’t work in reality, it does work on those who are not overly concerned about accuracy.

  • JP

    Now that homosexuality is considered normal then anything can be considered normal. We already see it with gender dysphoria.

    • John Connor

      It’s a normal variant of human sexuality. Calm down.

      • JP

        How can something that leads to suicide be normal?

        • Nathan James

          Just ask if there are any non-normal variants to human sexuality. If he says no, say “goodbye.” If he says yes, say “please explain how we identify the difference.”

        • John Connor

          Too funny. Homosexuals live just as long as anyone else.

            ” A new study which analyzed tens of thousands of gay obituaries and compared them with AIDS deaths data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), has shown that the life expectancy for homosexuals is about twenty years shorter than that of the general public. The study, entitled “Gay obituaries closely track officially reported deaths from AIDS”, has been published in Psychological Reports (2005;96:693-697).”

          • Alice Cheshire

            All gays have AIDS?

          • JP

            Its against the law for homosexuals to donate blood. Why do you think that is?

          • No, but is is a very substantial proportion.

          • John Connor

            Paul Cameron’s study got him removed from his own professional association due to the study. This is one of the most debunked studies out there. What’s too funny is that you and your ilk will hang around n to any lie that supports your position. Hypocrites at best.

      • Alice Cheshire

        Yes, pedo phila is indeed. So why is it illegal?

        • John Connor

      So you want to go by Rule 308?

    This is the reprobate mind, confusing lust for love. LGBT normalized this stunningly blind error, and so yes there will be more outflow from that error. Expecting there to be any sort of discernment from a reprobate is like expecting orange juice when you squeeze a rock.

  • TheSaint4JC

    It’s sick how the left can champion “#MeToo” and reprobate men who want to have sex with little girls as two separate and completely unrelated things…

    To me, this only shows that the left is completely reprobate as a whole… mental illness is too simple a label to put on their state of mind and soul!

    • Gideon Waxfarb

      > It’s sick how the left can champion “#MeToo” and reprobate men who want to have sex with little girls as two separate and completely unrelated things…

      That’s because they ARE two separate and unrelated (well, semi-related) things. One is a desire, the other is an action. You might think that people suddenly wake up one day and decide to be attracted to prepubescent children. Unfortunately, that’s not how that works. And even if it did work that way, why would anyone decide to do that, and be despised by everyone in modern society?

  • Andrew Mason

    So the next step is Paedophile Pride parades? While Heine’s argument is mostly familiar, and rational, the idea of publicly celebrating the lifestyle is a step beyond what I’ve heard of. I’m curious what grounds LGBT advocates have for opposing the lifestyle. Or is LGBTP the next step? Christians of course will continue to oppose child molestation, and continue to deny sexual choice is an individual’s identity, but LGBTists have already made clear that Christian objections to sexual relations outside marriage should be ignored – that Christian views consitute bigotry, and both courts and culture are running in favour of the LGBTists.

    • Alice Cheshire

      For a brief period the APA called pedo philia a “sex ual orientation”. The psychiatrists that fought to remove homo sexuality from the “illness” catagory are fighting for removing pedo philia from the list. It had to happen. Using an argument that applied to EVERY perversion had to come out poorly for society.

    • PedoPride parades have been a thing for decades. Go look up NAMBLA. Warning – not for the faint of heart.

      Who put them there, and starting when? Most people agree that it is wrong/harmful to “rip children from their mother’s arms”… yet some of those people believe it is good to rip children apart, limb-from-limb, in their mother’s womb. They are the same one’s who feign caring so much about children in those cages (i.e. virtue signaling). If they truly cared about all children, even if they cared about the truth, then they would have been “outraged” years ago.

    I have said this since the beginning of the so-called gay rights—it applies to the ALL desires, not just the ones the selfish, judgmental gays want legitimized. “The heart wants what the heart wants”, even if it’s a six year old child. Who are we to be judgmental and cruel in denying these people their desires???

    It seems far-fetched, but in just my lifetime the Progressive Movement has gone from saying “Your gender shouldn’t define your lifestyle” to saying, “This girl has masculine interests, so she must be a boy!” The Progressive push toward Nihilism is relentless.
