Yes, today, in the 21st century, pedophiles are fighting for the right to become part of the LGBT+ community, claiming that love is blind to age.
However, instead of using the old term "pedophile," these people are calling themselves "pedosexuals."
The current definition of pedosexuality is: "The sexual activity between an adult and a child." The exact meaning of pedophilia eerily aligns with the previous definition, being: "The fantasy or act of sexual activity with children who are generally age 13 years or younger."
How is it possible that we are living in an age that condones and advocates for the relationship between an emotionally, physically, and mentally immature minor and an adult?
Believe it or not, activists who are for pedosexuality have recently become more active in media. In fact, the support of these pedosexuals is even growing in number, arguing that because pedosexuality is a "minority sexual orientation group," it should be welcomed by the LGBT+ community.
You're probably wondering: "What happened? What made the pedosexuals so popular?"
Well, rumor has it that pedosexuality originally started as homophobic right-winged propaganda. But then the cause began to gain popularity when a controversial lecture sprang up.
It started at the most unexpected place—a TEDx talk—when German medical student Mirjam Heine blatantly stated that “pedophilia is an unchangeable sexual orientation, just like… heterosexuality.” She then elaborated to say, “Just like pedophiles, we are not responsible for our feelings.”
Life Site News dissects the lecture—and acknowledges the audience’s confusion—in their article, "TEDx speaker: ‘Pedophilia is an unchangeable sexual orientation,’ ‘anyone’ could be born that way." The writer of said article explains it best, concluding that “Heine stressed that social isolation of pedophiles is an important factor in how likely they are to sexually assault children. But to her, “social isolation” didn’t mean being without parents or friends—it meant the pedophile’s reluctance to tell them about his sexual inclinations.”
This lecture is the one that has sparked pedosexual activists and has made others wonder, "Should pedosexuality be considered a preference or an orientation?"
Personally, I don't think it matters—whether pedophilia is an orientation or preference, it should not be added to the LGBT+ community due to the fact that pedosexual is just a fancy term for "child predator."
Welcoming these people who engage in sexual activity with minors who barely grasp the definition of consent is no different than welcoming a potential sex offender. Encouraging pedosexuals would be enabling them to prey children by making it socially tolerable. Instead, pedophilia should be treated with psychiatric help—after all, it is considered a mental disorder.
Kids, (when I say "kids" I mean anyone who's underage), if you're in a relationship with someone who is an adult or if you're being pressured to be in a relationship with someone who's an adult, I'm going to ask you to please, please know these things:
- The age of consent where you live.
- Your rights as a minor where you live.
- That if an adult ever pressures you to engage in an activity that you did not consent to, it's not your fault.
- Get out of that relationship. There are people in the world who will claim that they care about you. Some of them are genuine. Most of them are out for their own agenda—and sometimes, that could mean hurting you.
- If the situation seems helpless, trust me, there are resources and people out there that are more than willing to help you—not because they want to use you, but because they care for you. All it takes is a Google search. And lastly,
- Get help. Talk to someone. Stay safe. You deserve better.
In conclusion? Pedophilic relationships are rarely—if ever—safe and consensual.
Let's fight to keep pedophilia out of the LGBT+ community. Let's keep our kids safe.
