Please be aware that this blog post covers pedophilia in the LGBTQ community & may be considered offensive to some. Please do not read if you are sensitive with the topic.
The rise of false news is now affecting the LGBTQ community with the false claims that we are ‘normalising pedophilia’. This statement is not only outrageous but worrying for the community.
We pride ourselves on being a loving and caring community and with these accusations floating around it can damage what we have been fighting for so long.
When looking into the subject I found a statement that said pedophilia is a ‘sexual orientation’ like being straight or gay, according to a criminal psychologist. The idea that sexual attraction to children is an ‘orientation’ is highly controversial as it suggests that offenders cannot change. But this is deviating from the point, as the characteristics of pedophilia is for those who want to study these individuals.
As for the LGBTQ community, we do not support or normalise paedophilia. Paedophilia is an illegal act and there is no place for this evil in our community. It can destroy lives and mentally scar children for the rest of their lives.
It’s upsetting to think that these false advertisements can damage the progress that so many brave people have fought for.
The worry I express is shown throughout the community. I hope if someone truly believes the false coverage on this subject that they find this post to show that we do not support and never will support this awful act.
I think people who believe paedophilia is comparable to homosexuality have been misinformed. Paedophilia is a sexual deviation and a mental illness as it causes significant damage to others, specifically minors who haven’t fully developed their sense of self. Homosexuality doesn’t cause damage, it was removed from the list of mental illnesses because it presented no harm to others or to the individual.
Paedophilia can never be considered anything other than illegal for that simple reason. It annoys me when people think the LGBTQ community is in any way, shape or form okay with it.
We are not only our sexuality despite what uneducated individuals may think. We are daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, parents and we play other roles in society that help move forward, especially that of allowing others the freedom to be who they are as long as they are not abusing of someone else.
I don’t know why they put stuff like ‘LGBTQ normalising pedophilia’ or anything in that context. It bothers me that pedophiles are using the LGBTQ community as an excuse to why they have sexual relations and fantasies with children.
‘Pedosexual’ is not a sexual orientation. It’s absolutely horrendous and the media need to stop putting headlines like that.
I find this very sickening. I have friends who were raped by adults and to this day they have insecurities about their body, they feel disgusted and depressed. My friend worked so hard to get over her past but it’s still a very sensitive subject for her and she still breaks down.
Over the past few years, the LGBTQ community has gone through trials, tribulations, celebrations and tragic losses. We have had times to celebrate and we have also had many struggles to be accepted in todays society – one such struggle we are going through today.
That being that certain disgusting individuals are trying to include paedophilia in our community. As a loving individual, I believe that true love is true love. However, in certain situations such as paedophilia, age does matter.
Not only is it illegal but morally it is absolutely repugnant. Our community has always stood for tolerance, love and equality but we do not stand by anything regarding the disgusting desired of human beings. The community hasn’t ever had nor will ever have any ties to this putrid behaviour.
Being part of this community myseld, I love what we have here and I will defend it till the day I die.
This is wrong. In my opinion paedophilia is psycho and needs to be stopped especially if they’re trying to wiggle their way into the LGBTQ community. Paedophiles don’t belong in any community if you ask me. The only thing they deserve is prison. I don’t wish death upon people but it’s so evil that I’m almost to that point.
I think paedophilia is disgusting and wrong. There are laws in place about the age of consent and they are there for a reason. Children don’t quite get right from wrong completely and they are used to doing what adults tell them to, making it easy for child predators to get them under their control.
In recent months some people have tried to integrate ‘pedosexuality’ into the LGBTQ community, resulting in the current issues of false rumours condoning that our community welcomes paedophiles.
Paedophilia is not even a sexuality. It’s more of a creepy fetish. It does not belong with us, we never said we accepted it. These rumours about the LGBTQ community normalising paedophilia need to stop now.
It’s happening & these statements prove that the LGBTQ community do not stand with these. The pictures shown on this post are nothing to do with the LGBTQ community, they may use our flags, they may use our symbols and they may use our phrases but don’t for a second think the LGBTQ community aren’t angry about this. We don’t want them using these iconic things that make us known to the world.
These individuals are NOT in the LGBTQ community & we will never be accepted in out community as well as society. DO NOT believe these false advertisements that are being made, this is how false rumors are spread. Please don’t believe this.
Thank you for those that provided statements on this crazy topic.
