Are NJ Legislators sexualizing childhood?

Less than a week after Assembly Speaker Vinnie Prieto (D-Sacco) promised to make New Jersey's historically high child poverty his top concern, that appears to have been pushed aside in favor of the top issue of the swingers' lobby -- women with penises.  You know how it is, poor children can't afford a lobbyist.  Rich and influential sexual swingers can buy whatever strikes their fancy.

The swingers want to see legislation (S-283) passed so that a man, with a penis, can become a legal "woman", simply by saying that he is seeing a therapist and then re-submitting his birth certificate to reflect his "new sex".  No surgery required. 

And it won't be recorded as an "amended" birth certificate.  It will be filed as the original.  The government will pretend that it can go back in time to correct the "perception" of the doctors and nurses who saw a child with a penis and checked "male".  The government will, in fact, lie and pretend that the attending physician checked "female" when, of course, he did not.    

This has long been the goal of a branch of therapy that is well organized and represented by a number of professional associations who lobby extensively.  They are followers of the Kinsey model of human sexuality, which gained traction in the 1950's.  This model embraces the idea that there should be no sexual taboos or restrictions, since all behaviors lay within the spectrum of sexual diversity, and that spectrum includes sex between the powerful and their subordinates, sex for pay, adult-child sex, and even incest. 

These therapists and the educators and politicians they influence promote the theory -- remembering that in the field of therapy, everything is "theory" -- that there are a "range" of genders, not restricted to male and female, and that all types of erotic preferences and lifestyles are variations of healthy sexuality.  They reject the labels normal and abnormal.  Nothing is abnormal, it just is. 

In 1999, the leaders in this field of therapy condemned Congress for withdrawing public funding from a controversial study by Dr. Bruce Rind (Temple University), Dr. Robert Bauserman (State of Maryland), and Mr. Philip Tromovitch (University of Pennsylvania).   These three experts in human sexuality advanced the idea that not all sexual intercourse between adults and children is necessarily harmful.

In 1998, their findings were published in the Psychological Bulletin, an academic psychology journal published by the often-cited American Psychological Association.  These psychologists analyzed 59 studies of college students who said they were sexually abused in childhood, and concluded that the effects of such abuse ''were neither pervasive nor typically intense, and that men reacted much less negatively than women.''

The study found that adult predatory sexual behavior towards children ''may represent only a violation of social norms with no implication for personal harm.'' The psychologists suggested that the term ''adult-adolescent sex'' or ''adult-child sex'' be substituted, in some cases, for ''child sexual abuse.''   

The North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) strongly endorsed the study.  The study also received support from organizations like the Society for the Scientific Study of Sex; the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists; the National Coalition Against Censorship; and the American Association for the Advancement of Science

We list them, along with the American Psychological Association, because  Senator Joseph Vitale (D-McGreevey), the chairman of the senate committee through which the "therapy + penis = woman" legislation must pass, is fond of citing "experts" who support his position and dissing those who don't.  To be fair, he should know fully on whose team he is playing in advance of the 2017 primary, when that "team" will be detailed within the houses of worship that serve his district.

The idea that a government can alter a human being's genetic makeup simply by passing a law is a shade of King Canute.  It is also antithetical to Science itself.

Every Senator who supports S-283 should be aware of the inevitable conflicts that will arise when the attempt is made to brainwash young children into believing that a man can become a woman merely by "believing" it, finding the odd therapist to support you in your belief, and finally to alter a government document.  Vulnerable children will inevitably be required to undergo a species of the notorious SAR program.

SAR or Sexuality Attitude Restructuring, is a tool developed to increase students’ comfort with a broad range of behaviors.  During the SAR, films, slides, and audio of explicit sexual behaviors -- heterosexual, homosexual, group, oral, child-adult -- are projected on multiple screens for hours at a time, followed by group discussions.  In the 1970’s, SAR got the moniker "F*ck-O-Rama."  SAR is required for certification by some therapy associations.

Children's advocate Dr. Judith Reisman describes SAR as “a critical tool to reshape views of human sexuality”.  It desensitizes and disinhibits the brain, she explains, “to allow a shift in pedagogical attitude and performance”. 

On Monday, January 25, 2016, the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee will be holding a hearing on S-283.  The public hearing will be held at 1 PM in Committee Room 1, on the First Floor of the State House Annex in Trenton, New Jersey.

Members of the swingers lobby will no doubt be present to propagate their world view.  Those of us who have not yet undergone SAR retraining should also attend to add our voices... while we are still permitted them.
