Pedophilia NOT a Crime, Says Obama-supporting Prof.

Furthering the liberal mind-set regarding deviant sex . . .

This week, the New York Times printed an Op-Ed by Margo Kaplan of Rutgers University (who formerly represented the ACLU) in which the learned law professor explains why pedophiles should not be excluded from occupations such as teaching.

“The fact that pedophilia is so despised is precisely why our responses to it, in criminal justice and mental health, have been so inconsistent and counterproductive.”
-- Margo Kaplan, assistant professor at Rutgers School of Law, Camden

-- From "Pedophilia Deserves Civil Rights, Says New York Times’ Op-Ed" by Neil Munro, Daily Caller 10/6/14

Kaplan is trying to make a legal career in the regulation of expanding sexual diversity, instead of routine and lower-status practice areas, such as torts, probate, crime or copyrights. She’s focused on “legal limitations on intimate decisions, particularly the use of criminal law in areas of health and sexuality,” according to her web page.

Kaplan says criminal law should be changed so that pedophiles are only stigmatized or denied jobs if law school graduates agree that they pose a “direct threat” to children.

In the 1970s, the Catholic Church accepted the advice of many experts in the new mental-health industry, and concluded that pedophile priests could be successfully treated with private therapy. The theory was not proven correct, and it helped protect many priests as they sexually abused thousands of boys.

From "Pedophilia: A Disorder, Not a Crime" by Margo Kaplan, New York Times 10/5/14

. . . One can live with pedophilia and not act on it.

. . . [A] misconception is that pedophilia is a choice.

. . . The Virtuous Pedophiles website is full of testimonials of people who vow never to touch a child and yet live in terror. They must hide their disorder from everyone they know — or risk losing educational and job opportunities, and face the prospect of harassment and even violence. Many feel isolated; some contemplate suicide.

While treatment cannot eliminate a pedophile’s sexual interests, a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication can help him to manage urges and avoid committing crimes.

The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibit discrimination against otherwise qualified individuals with mental disabilities, in areas such as employment, education and medical care. Congress, however, explicitly excluded pedophilia from protection under these two crucial laws.

It’s time to revisit these categorical exclusions. . . .

A pedophile should be held responsible for his conduct — but not for the underlying attraction.

From "Obama Donor Argues Pedophilia 'Not a Crime' in NYT Op-Ed" by Katie Yoder, 10/7/14

Here's a tidbit of information The New York Times left out of the bio of a professor who argued pedophilia is "not a crime" in a recent Op-Ed - she's also a President Obama supporter.

. . . In 2012, Kaplan donated $250 to Barack Obama's campaign.

An assistant professor at Rutgers School of Law - Camden, and a former lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union, Kaplan has plans for a "Taking Pedophilia Seriously" publication to be released next year. At Rutgers, her research focuses on "legal limitations on intimate decisions, particularly the use of criminal law in areas of health and sexuality."
