Academia Softens the Next Target by Eroding Resistance to Pedophilia

What’s next for leftists, now that their campaign to normalize homosexuality is in the mop-up phase? A good guess is pedophilia. Already academics are softening up the target with chin-pulling treatises like Pedophilia and Adult–Child Sex: A Philosophical Analysis by taxpayer-subsidized State University of New York at Fredonia professor Stephen Kershnar. From the publisher’s website:

This book provides a philosophical analysis of adult–child sex and pedophilia. This sex intuitively strikes many people as sick, disgusting, and wrong. The problem is that it is not clear whether these judgments are justified and whether they are aesthetic or moral. By analogy, many people find it disgusting to view images of obese people having sex, but it is hard to see what is morally undesirable about such sex: here the judgment is aesthetic. This book looks at the moral status of such adult-child sex. In particular, it explores whether those who engage in adult-child sex have a disease, act wrongly, or are vicious.

Via The Christian Post:

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, said that while he does not believe that pedophilia will be mainstreamed in the next few years, since most American are still repulsed by it, books like Kershnar’s indicate yet another dark front in the Left’s strategic war on Judeo-Christian moral norms.

LaBarbera is optimistic. Human nature being far less malleable than fashionable opinion, it is likely that an overwhelming majority of Americans are still repulsed by homosexuality, which we are now expected not just to tolerate, not just to accept, but to revere. But only a small minority will admit to being thought criminals.

Particularly disturbing to LaBarbera and others was this line from Kershnar’s book: “Adult-child sex involving willing participants has an unclear moral status.”

“Kershnar is injecting nuance and situational ambiguity to chip away at the near-universal understanding that sex between adults and kids is always wrong,” LaBarbera said, adding that “Sex radicals have learned from the successful campaign by ‘gay’ militants to normalize once-taboo behaviors and concepts like same-sex ‘marriage.’ Now they are in the ‘study’ phase on pedophilia,” LaBarbera said.

Already the shift has been taking place, and central to understanding how this happens is observing how the language frames public discourse about sexuality issues. As noted by the The Independent (UK) in April, some psychologists are now referring to pedophilia as a “sexual orientation” …

Discriminate based on sexual orientation and the federal government will come down on you like a ton of bricks.

Incidentally, the original title of Kershar’s book was reportedly Pedophilia and Adult-Child Sex: A Philosophical Defense before the publisher changed the last word to “Analysis,” presumably so as not to push the envelope too far too fast. Frogs should be boiled at just the right temperature, lest they leap out of the pot.

    I wonder it that prick has ever met Mr. Mossberg.

    So- there is hope for us snuff film aficionados?

    My money’s on polygamy. I’ve also got a long odds bet on the order being polygamy, pedophilia, then bestiality.

  5. Tchhht!!! says:

    Necrophilia ought to be in there somewhere.

  6. Exit Only says:

    The blue print for global Sodom and Gomorrah, writ large and supported by Leftists academia.

    “Unclear moral status” my eye.It will become crystal clear when you are in hell, and have all eternity to re-evaluate the validity of your claim, Mr. Kershnar.

  7. KHarn says:

    The “sister wives” televison show.

  8. KHarn says:

    It’s already been OKed by muslims; as long as the deceased is still “fresh”.

  9. Pelopidas says:

    There is no doubt that this is on the left’s ‘to do’ list.

    All the more reason to vote “not Hillary” and by that I mean not wasting a protest vote by 1. not voting or 2. voting 3rd party. If you live in a state where the outcome is already done like Ca then ok, your vote really does not matter. But if you live in a swing state like Colorado any vote other than for the GOP nominee is a vote for Hillary. To be clear, I can’t bring my self to say I’m for for the guy with the plane- I’m just saying I’m voting against Hillary.

  10. KHarn says:

    Just a year ago the idiots were saying “That will NEVER happen! You’re just paranoid!”
    Doctor Frankenstein’s monster has already killed the hunchback and is looking for the exit…

  11. KHarn says:

    After the election, I’ll be in the shower. Scrubbing and crying.

  12. Pelopidas says:

    They are all on the table but don’t forget incest. I recall reading a news item out of New Jersey of an 18 year old who is engaged to her bio father. She made it clear that if her mom does not get with the program she won’t be invited to the wedding.

  13. Occam's Stubble says:

    Here is how we’ll get to incest: The traditional prohibition on incest is that children from the union would have birth defects. Now that we have homosexual marriages, why can’t we have same-sex incestuous unions? After all, there will be no possibility of producing children and once you allow the gays to do it, you’ll have to allow the straights to do it.

  14. Occam's Stubble says:

    Yeah, they’ve been softening the target for years.

  15. Michael Ejercito says:

    How will they get fathers of teenage girls to go along with this?

  16. GomeznSA says:

    I’m not so sure it isn’t the other way around………………:-(
    After all, the ‘d’s’ have repeatedly shown they will do absolutely anything for votes.

  17. Marylou says:

    “Blazing a Trail to Hell”
    Dave, I like your subtitle. Completely accurate — they should have used it.

  18. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    If he’d practiced what he preaches on one of mine and I caught him at it I probably wouldn’t introduce him to Mr. Mossberg. But that’s because I’d be too busy laying into the sicko with the nearest solid object to retrieve my shotgun.

  19. Silence Dogood says:

    This will never be acceptable. Ever

  20. Charlie Tuna says:

    Ha, great point!

  21. RKae says:

    Shut up and bake them their wedding cake, slave!

    It’s going to need 2 grooms on top, and remember: one of them has to look like a little kid.

  22. RKae says:


    Next question?

  23. RKae says:

    Don’t forget gay polygamy!

    Five guys are going to walk into your church and say, “You have to marry us all.”

  24. BostonLiberty says:

    Stephen Kershnar should be locked up. Who knows what sick things he has done in the name of ‘research’.

  25. Ol' Uncle Lar says:

    II think Islam has #2 and #3 switched, but they’re on board with the total program.

  26. Ol' Uncle Lar says:

    No goin’ to the morgue for a “cold one”?

  27. Ol' Uncle Lar says:

    I’m guessin’ “No” or his book would be published posthumously.

  28. Silence Dogood says:

    And make damn sure that the little kid doll is autonomocally correct! Or I’ll SUE!!!

  29. Jack says:

    Leftists and their odd-fellows the Muslims clearing the path for child brides in America.

  30. Jack says:

    Don’t forget California and New Hampshire,

    Disney to soften the blow with pedophile muppet on Sesame Street.

    Disgusting…re-blogged this @ our humble site:

  33. micheal says:

    I have been saying this for a couple of years now and driving the homophiles batty. But when I ask what is the nature of sex performed by male perps on their male victims, the answers are, well, in the realm of chock full of nuts.

  34. Projekt Kobra says:

    I remember that….back when things made a bit more sense.

  35. Projekt Kobra says:

    Kudos on your clever avatar and handle.

  36. Barry da Burka King says:


    “Human nature being far less malleable than fashionable opinion” – What does that say about human nature when you look at islam.


  37. Barry da Burka King says:


    They’re preparing us for the sexual practices of islam and the millions of moslems they plan to loosen upon us..

    Sorry, NeverTrumpers, but Hitlery will bring in way more of them than Trump.


  38. Occam's Stubble says:

    I’ve got a great idea. Why don’t we just declare that we’re all married to each other? When you’re born, you’re automatically married to everyone else. That way, we’ll have all our bases covered.

  39. 762x51 says:

    Yep, remember all the kids the perp molested after that? Me either.

    Game, Set, Match.

  40. 762x51 says:

    As I said earlier, a target rich environment with no RoE.

  41. 762x51 says:

    Polygamy will take a matter of a few weeks. Pedophilia will take longer but they will push it. Bestiality comes in when they are ready to force Islam on us. The lead flies loooong before that.

  42. 762x51 says:

    ohhhh, you have corks for that popgun, sonny?

  43. 762x51 says:

    He would die, but it would take weeks. I’ll bust out the saline bags to keep him going just to prolong it.

  44. Tchhht!!! says:

    Want to challenge me to a other gunfight Peashooter?

  45. Tchhht!!! says:

    Take your pick Peashooter…

  46. It’s painfully obvious that Mr. Kershnar does not have children….I mean, is not a parent.

  47. 762x51 says:

    Absolutely, pissant. gun owner does not equal gunfighter.

    You have the stones for it?

    Not a chance. ROTFLMAO.

    I’ve faced far worse than your popgun, dick eater.

  48. Tchhht!!! says:

    Sure you have Peashooter, but I have a better idea…

  49. Dr Why says:

    I’ve been saying this for years. Look at how vicious the homosexual activists have been during the last couple of years. Progressives need to progress, and pedophilia is just one more thing on the list.

    And after that? How about a requirement that students have to have a homosexual experience in order to receive a university diploma. You don’t think that can happen? You didn’t think that major corporations would boycott North Carolina for keeping women’s bathrooms for women, either.

  50. 762x51 says:

    Yeah, Like I thought, just another Internet coward.

    I’ve called your bluff, now follow through with it or admit you are just a sniveling coward.

    Come on little bitch, face me, or shut the fuck up, pussy.
