USA Today Seemingly Justifies Pedophilia, Calls It ‘Determined In The Womb’, Says They Are ‘Misunderstood’

In an article posted on Monday, USA Today seemed to justify and encourage the normalization of pedophilia in society. The author, Alia Dastagir said pedophilia is one of “the most misunderstood” sexual disorders.

Dastagir said scientists found pedophilia to be “determined in the womb, though environmental factors may influence whether someone acts on an urge to abuse.” Dastagir justified some pedophiles, saying, “some pedophiles never abuse children, experts say, and some people who sexually abuse children do not sexually prefer them, but use them as a surrogate for an adult partner. They may be disinhibited and anti-social, with impulse control problems.”

Anna Salter, a psychologist who also encouraged Dastagir’s pro-pedophile narrative said, “There are the people who are sexually attracted to children … (and then) there are some people who molest kids who are not pedophiles. They molest kids because of anger. They molest kids because they’re scared of adult women. They molest kids to get revenge, but they don’t actually have an age preference for prepubescent children.”

Michael Seto, forensic research director at the Royal Ottawa Health Care Group in Canada, said that pedophiles do not choose their sexual preferences. Seto said, “I think as a field, we’ve accepted the idea that this is not something that people choose. ” Seto claimed that pedophiles are born that way or have a predisposition to want to engage in sexual activity with prepubescent children.

The USA Today article noted that an “academic at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, who talked about “destigmatizing pedophilia” and referred to pedophiles as “minor-attracted people” resigned in November following outcry over the phrase.” Allyn Walker was the “academic” that pushed the normalization of pedophiles and the USA Today article claimed there is “growing support in the field for Walker’s point of view.”

In a series of tweets, USA Today justified pedophilia. They said, “When most of the public thinks of pedophilia, they assume it’s synonymous with child sexual abuse. A pedophile is an adult who is sexually attracted to children, but not all pedophiles abuse kids, and some people who sexually abuse kids are not pedophiles.”

USA Today added, “In recent decades, the science on pedophilia has improved. One of the most significant findings is that pedophilia is likely determined in the womb, though environmental factors may influence whether someone acts on an urge to abuse.”

Conservative commentator Jon Miller ripped into USAToday on Twitter.

Curtis Houck, the managing editor at News Busters, called USA Today’s work “truly demonic.”
