In the 1970s and 1980s, many gay rights activists and organizations — including the International Gay and Lesbian Association — supported and marched with NAMBLA, which (as you’d know if you’ve watched South Park) stands for the North American Man/Boy Love Association: quite literally, advocates for paedophiles.

In 1994, GLAAD and other gay rights groups published letters officially condemning NAMBLA, and that was the end of that.

But, now that American society has been sold the gay rights struggle, activists and liberal academics have decided not to leave their fallen paedophilic comrades behind.

Andrew Gilligan writes at The Telegraph:

‘Paedophilia is natural and normal for males’

“Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” said the presentation. “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”

Some yellowing tract from the Seventies or early Eighties, era of abusive celebrities and the infamous PIE, the Paedophile Information Exchange? No. Anonymous commenters on some underground website? No again.

The statement that paedophilia is “natural and normal” was made not three decades ago but last July. It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge.

Other presentations included “Liberating the paedophile: a discursive analysis,” and “Danger and difference: the stakes of hebephilia.”
