Just as recent as 2018, we had an unnoticed threat: an attempt, “in parts of the academic establishment to push the boundaries on the acceptability of child sex.”
At an academic presentation at Cambridge University, between 4th and 5th June of 2018, titled ‘Prevalence of Paedophilia’ by Philip Tromovitch, the most controversial of all, it was actually stated that ‘the majority of men are probably paedophiles’ and that ‘paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males.’ ‘At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children….Normal males are aroused by children.’
Other presentations, in the open, during an academic presentation at this well-renowed University, were ‘Liberating the paedophile: a discursive analysis’ and ‘Danger and Difference: the stakes of hebephilia.’ Hebephilia means the sexual preference for children typically 11 to 14-year-olds, or early puberty.
“Another attendee, and enthusiastic participant from the floor, was one Tom O’Carroll, a multiple child sex offender, long-time campaigner for the legalisation of sex with children and former head of the Paedophile Information Exchange. ‘Wonderful!’ he wrote on his blog afterwards. ‘It was a rare few days when I could feel relatively popular!'”
Also in 2018, during a TedX talk, at the University of Wurzburg, it was stated that ‘paedophilia is not a disorder but a sexual orientation’ while four years earlier, in 2014, the New York Times had declared that ‘paedophilia is not a crime but a disorder.’
Posters were also spread:
And Cosmopolitan magazine had published an article written by a young woman, who told how she became her father’s lover:
