So much for promoting safety for gay youth. It turns out that GLSEN’s reading list has some unexpected supporters, and by unexpected I mean just what I and others have predicted.
As I mentioned in my earlier post, my relationship with “anti” blogs like Absolute Zero United and groups like Pagans Against Child Abuse has made me privy to a little known world that many readers are blissfully unaware of – the online pro-pedophile movement. There are a series of forums populated by both anonymous pedophiles and registered sex offenders that promote the idea that adults should be able to molest children and collect child porn. It is, to them, the fascism of people like me that “oppresses” pedophiles who they claim are a sexual minority like homosexuals.
