The terrifying part of this story is that these liberals that teach our children are calling for legalized pedophilia.
An enlightened liberal professor out of Austin, Thomas Hubbard, calls for the legalization of pederastic intimacy. I will admit I never heard of such a thing, and when I researched it, I left thinking I wish I never had.
Hubbard has written about pederasty, which was a “prominent social phenomenon in numerous ancient Greek cultures” where men and boys had “relationships.” In this case, sexual relationships.
Hubbard has written that “contemporary American legislation premised on children’s incapacity to ‘consent’ to sexual relations stems from outmoded gender constructions and ideological preoccupations of the late Victorian and Progressive Era.”
Let this sink in; this is what is being taught to our children, that it should not be illegal to be intimate, i.e., have a sexual relationship with children.
What is more surprising, this man, Hubbard, is getting paid by taxpayers as a member of the University of Texas faculty to argue that predation laws should be reconsidered to lower the age of consent.
In his article, Hubbard argues that Ancient Greece showed us that “where age-discrepant relationships are commonplace and positively reinforced, they cause little or no long-term harm to the younger partner and often confer a great benefit” he writes.
This was contained in a 22-page article Hubbard wrote for a journal called Thymos, entitled “Sexual Consent and the Adolescent Male, or What Can We Learn From the Greeks.”
Yet, as we have heard many times on TV in one commercial or another, “Wait, but there is more!”
Hubbard also says that the problem of young boys without fathers might be resolved by having men have sex with those boys.
“Pederastic intimacy evolved in part as a social mechanism for addressing it. Contemporary U.S. culture has not compensated for the magnitude of the problem.”
Hubbard then attacks the age-of-consent laws that prohibit sexual contact with adolescents. As my wife used to love to say, “These people are so smart, they have become stupid!” This gets the whole thing mixed up; these laws were never to infringe on adults right; they were set up to protect children’s innocence.
Hubbard justifies his sickening position by saying that America “should consider moving in the direction of what most European states do, which is to maintain an age of consent of 14 or 15 with special protections against prostitution of those under 18 or involvement with an adult who is in a position of trust (family members, teachers, therapists, clergy), he said.
Wow…boundaries. Shocking actually.
Thankfully there are people with common sense and morals; there are activists on the UT campus who have been trying to get Hubbard ousted.
A campus blog named “Incendiary News” says that in a course called “Mythologies of Rape,” Hubbard required that students write about their experiences with sexual assault and “made them argue whether or not it is rape under Texas penal code.”
According to a student, he also had them “write a paper over lowering the age of consent and lowering the punishment for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 6.” This guy receives a hefty salary, courtesy of the taxpayers of Texas, for promoting this garbage.
This is sick beyond comprehension. You are demanding young adults, many of them our children, to write an article about why it should be legal to do such a thing. Why is he still teaching?
Enter the sick group North American Man/Boy Love Association, or NAMBLA, a pro-pedophilia and pro-pederasty organization. Yes, such an organization exists. And to think the NRA receives so much hate.
Anyway, NAMBLA thinks Hubbard is a great guy, and, published “Greek Love Considered,” a collection that examines the history of ancient Greek homosexuality and features articles from various scholars, Hubbard included.
Hubbard says that he does not “endorse NAMBLA’s idiosyncratic approach to legal reform,” nor does he “share the sexual orientation of its members.” Ok, but he shares the same warped idea of sexual exploitation of children.
Pro-pedophilia sites love Hubbard. The website BoyChat, a pro-pedophile message board, described Hubbard as a “great man–fearless on speaking out against today’s phobic persecution of boylove.”
A spokesman for UT-Austin told The American Statesman that “the study of controversial and even offensive ideas is protected by the First Amendment–as is the right of others to disagree with and draw attention to those ideas strongly.”
“If someone is alleged to violate university policy or takes actions that threaten the campus community’s safety, the university will respond swiftly, investigating allegations thoroughly and imposing sanctions as warranted.”
As an advocate of the sanctity of the first amendment, I believe that all speech should be held as a right, but this does not mean that all speech should be uttered without consequences. This is where the school is missing out. This man is teaching our children, is in a place of trust, and abuses it.
I believe that all speech should be held as a right, but this does not mean that all speech should be able to be uttered without consequences.
Push, push…nudge, nudge. We have seen over the past 10-15 years the devolution of our society. What would have been unheard of at the beginning of this century is now accepted and forced down our throats.
Personally, what people do in the privacy of their own homes is, with exceptions, clearly their business. However, we now have men allowed in women’s locker rooms if they say they “identify” as a female.
We have men who “identify” as females entering high school athletic competitions and demolishing their competition out of “fairness.”
The alphabet mafia is doxing businesses if they don’t bake a wedding cake in opposition to their religious beliefs, yet they turn a blind eye to this.
The idea that one would condone or think that they should have a right to be intimate with a child, young teen, or even a six-year-old is way beyond the pale; it crosses way over a line too far, runs it over and then blows it up.
Chick-fil-A is banned from places like college campuses and airports because of its founder’s personal opinion regarding marriage. It’s anything goes, good time rock and roll right now. And people like Hubbard are a result of it. We see that belief and boundaries are made up by the left as they go, molesting children, that is ok, believing in traditional marriage, that is evil.
Many people on the right predicted several years ago that this was the direction we were headed in. And they are not afraid to tip their hands. An editorial in the New York Times in 2014 suggested that pedophilia is not a crime but rather a disorder.
The writer suggests that pedophilia is not a choice, but instead has neurological origins. The writer complains that pedophilia was excluded from the Americans With Disabilities Act (thank God!).
Richard Gardner, a clinical professor of child psychiatry, was once quoted as saying, “Society’s excessively moralistic and punitive reactions toward pedophiles…go far beyond what I consider to be the gravity of the crime.” He says that pedophilia serves “procreative purposes.” This guy needs a slap upside the head. It’s coming, folks. Write it down.
We are living in a world where anything goes. Think we’re up to what now, 60 something “genders.” We are told to believe in science when it comes to “climate change,” but not when it comes to gender.
Sadly it is starting to look like cracks against what has been prohibited is beginning, they terrifyingly are growing more extensive as time goes on, how long until this dam burst as well?
G-d help our children!
