Liberal Professor Goes Too Far Normalizing Child Abuse And Pedophilia
The discussion of pedophilia is a complicated one, and there is a definite line between right and wrong. Unfortunately, some liberal historians seem to be attempting to blur that line in order to normalize the horrific act of sexual assault on minors.
In a recent interview, historian Rachel Hope Cleves described pedophilia as “intergenerational sex” and refused to use words such as “survivors” or “abuse” when discussing the rape of a 10-year-old boy. She said, “In writing this book I didn’t want to use pedophilia discourse because I felt like it would fail to capture this other historical organizing system, for intergenerational sex, which was the topic I wanted to address.”
This is a disgusting attempt to normalize a horrendous act. Cleves is a professor of History at the University of Victoria and is currently on leave. In 2017, she co-authored an opinion column which argued that Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who was accused of sexually assaulting several underage girls, was “not a pedophile.”
It is alarming that liberals are trying to push the narrative that pedophilia is a normal behavior, and not one that should be condemned. Pedophilia is a repulsive act that should never be normalized. It is a form of child abuse and those who commit it should be held accountable for their actions. Children are vulnerable and need to be protected from those who would do them harm.
Pedophilia is a crime and should be treated as such. We need to stand together and speak out against those who would attempt to normalize such a vile act. It is essential that our society continues to reject the notion that pedophilia is acceptable in any form. We must recognize that it is a heinous act and those who commit it must be punished.
In a talk on her biography on pedophile writer Norman Douglas, @uvic professor Rachel Hope Cleves described pederasty as "intergenerational sex" and says she won't use the discourse of "survivors or necessarily abuse."

It is disheartening to see some liberal historians trying to normalize pedophilia. This is not only inappropriate, it is dangerous. It is our responsibility to ensure that our society is a safe and secure place for our children, and that includes making sure that pedophiles are not allowed to normalize their behavior.
I doubt she thought this video would ever get out, but here it is... Just sick.
