Nearly two years after the far left publication Salon ended its crusade to normalize pedophilia, the BBC picked up the slack, posting a piece suggesting pedophiles just need “help” not “condemnation.”
The BBC is no stranger when it comes to controversy related to pedophilia. The British news outlet once employed popular TV personality Jimmy Savile, believed to have abused over 500 boys and girls. Savile’s decades of depravity were concealed behind a thick veneer of BBC celebrity and personal philanthropy, making the publication of such a provocative topic even more obtuse.
The anonymous author, in his very first sentence, anxiously declares that pedophilia is just a “disorder” and likens it to an actual “sexual orientation.” The tenor and tone of the article is one of a victimhood — fear that if he were “outed” as pedophile, it may lead to “violence” and “physical attacks.”
It should be noted that the author never hints that acting on the impulse to sexually abuse children is acceptable, and acknowledges that his “former orientation” later led him to seek help, discovering that it is entirely curable. He does not, it appears, understand his own tacit admission: that the condemnation of nefarious and evil sex acts perpetrated on children, rather than social acceptance or acknowledgement of it as a sexual orientation, was the impetus for him to seek help.
