The problem with this wonderful theory is that the people working in the field don't seem to buy into this claim. I searched for the terms "homosexual pedophile" "bisexual pedophile" and "heterosexual pedophile" in scientific journals published since 2000. And guess what? Plenty of articles that use these terms to refer to persons who are attracted only to the same sex of child, both sexes of child, and only the opposite sex of child.
Now, at this point you are probably going to say, "But people that are sexually attracted to children are not necessarily 'gay' in the sense of being attracted to adults of the same sex." There is certainly truth to that statement for many, probably most pedophiles who have sex with children of the same sex. However, studies as recently as 2000 surveying the literature concluded:
The best epidemiological evidence indicates that only 2–4% of men attracted to adults prefer men (ACSF Investigators, 1992; Billy et al., 1993; Fay et al., 1989; Johnson et al., 1992); in contrast, around 25–40% of men attracted to children prefer boys (Blanchard et al., 1999; Gebhard et al., 1965; Mohr et al., 1964). Thus, the rate of homosexual attraction is 6–20 times higher among pedophiles.Over the years, I have picked up a number of news stories about people who are openly gay and were not just interested in adults, like Nelson Garcia, a member of the North American Man-Boy Love Association, a convicted pedophile, and an activist for gay causes. Or people who are clearly gay, such as:
Lombard, associate director of Duke's Center for Health Policy, was arrested Wednesday evening at his home. Investigators seized two webcams, five computers and a sex toy, among other items, after searching his home.
The 5-year-old and another child in the home were placed in protective custody.Or this charming fellow:
Lombard, a licensed clinical social worker with a master's degree in social work, is a health-disparities researcher who studies HIV/AIDS in the rural South.
ASHEVILLE — A community activist and actor pleaded guilty to 16 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor after using the Internet to collect and share graphic child pornography.I have seen many other similar examples. I'm not saying that every homosexual (or even most homosexuals) are child molesters. That is not the case. But pretending that those who molest children are, by definition, not homosexuals, is simply not supported by the evidence.
A judge sentenced Andrew Douglas Reed, 53, to a minimum of 10 months and a maximum of 12 months in prison, District Attorney Ron Moore said Thursday.
Reed was arrested on June 10, 2005, during a statewide operation conducted by the State Bureau of Investigation.
According to a warrant authorizing a search of his Dogwood Road home, SBI agents determined Reed used an e-mail account to post 169 images and three movies containing child pornography on file-sharing networks from Jan. 13, 2004, to May 9. Most depicted children as young as 6 engaged in sex acts with adults or other children.
Reed, who also worked as a columnist for the Asheville Citizen Times, often wrote in support of the "gay" agenda in the region.
