Next thing - there will a civil rights issue for those wanting to have sex w/ kids.

Gawker's Soft Peddling Pedophilia

Throughout the piece passive language like this soft peddles child rape. Constantly were are told that sex between adults and children as a "choice." Even "Terry" claims that the sex he had with his seven-year-old niece was consensual and Gawker simply takes his word for it without protest.

Then the piece goes on to reveal the "expert" testimony of a psychologist that claims that pedophilia is a "sexual orientation" just like homosexuality or even heterosexuality.

...
There is enough here that should alarm the gay community, too. The thing that should scare them most is that this article fully equates child rapists and pedophiles as just like them. The last paragraph is shocking for it dismissive treatment of child rape and its equation of such with “normal” sexual behavior.
The old adage is that the true mark of a society is how it treats the weakest in its ranks. Blacks, women, Latinos, gays and lesbians, and others are still in no way on wholly equal footing in America. But they're also not nearly as lowly and cursed as men attracted to children. One imagines that if Jesus ever came to Earth, he'd embrace the poor, the blind, the lepers, and, yes, the pedophiles. As a self-professed "progressive," when I think of the world I'd like to live in, I like to imagine that one day I'd be OK with a man like Terry moving next door to me and my children. I like to think that I could welcome him in for dinner, break bread with him, and offer him the same blessings he's offered me time and again. And what hurts to admit, even knowing all I know now, is that I'm not positive I could do that.


This is truly deviant stuff. But - you open the door to allow gay as normal, this is what you get.

Logical Fallacy: Slippery Slope

There is no slippery slope to legalizing consensual activities between adults to allowing adults to victimize non-consenting minors (who cannot, by definition, consent).

(I'll give you a hint, since you're apparently too stupid to understand it: the fact that someone is born a certain way does not mean that we allow them to victimize others. This is why we do not excuse crimes committed by psychopaths, who may be born that way. You really should think through the implications of what you think passes for 'logic'. It's probably the whole thinking thing you have a problem with, I suppose. Consensual sex between adults, gay or straight, is not victimization. Which is why comparing it to pedophilia is moronic.)

And now, back to your regularly-scheduled idiocy.

Well said.

When did people become proud of championing stupid arguments?

I am glad to see the first reply addressed in this manner. It means there really isn't anything else that needs said.

So gay equals forty year olds having sex with five year olds? Are you sure you don't want to think this through a tad better then repost maybe?

This.

Whether it is a sexual orientation or not isn't the issue. The issue is that one has a victim and the other doesn't. End of story.

I wonder how having sex with a minor is equal to a slippery slope since the minor isn't consenting?

Ah, the evolution of the brain. Obviously, it has by-passed some members of our species.
