If we were to put aside our case for non-contact pedophile rights - just for a moment, how many adverse consequences could we list for society in general? I almost considered grafting extra fingers to count them all. In this half of my post, I consider the negative impacts on Children:
Anti-pedophile hysteria has always been rooted primarily in the underlying, unspoken, desire to keep young people in a controlled, confined atmosphere. A greenhouse environment.

Edward Brongersma asserts that this ‘unhealthy situation is not a natural condition, but is peculiar only to the last two centuries’. It was only after […]
