Something that has caught full attention over these couple months (but that has well over been going on for years however) is the continuous affiliation of the Pedophile movement with specific sides of the political spectrum, as if in some way justifying, in a logically flawed manner, moral superiority over given opposing resistance between themselves, using our movement as a means of incrimination, mixing such name with other unrelated subjects all together. This habit cannot only be seen in disputes amongst different political ideologies, it can be identified in different sources of news. When mentioned in news, it is common trait to label such movement together with terrorism or “hacktivism”, such as groups as notorious like Anonymous in order to propagate fear and privacy-invading propaganda slowly, but steadily.
Allow me to clear something up, in the name of my fellow partners, both anti-contacts as of pro-contact pedophiles. The pedophile movement as a whole is not inherent to any political identity, given that there are so many different pedophiles located throughout the entirety of what it has been known as the political compass. Left-wing, right-wing, centrist, top and bottom, pedophiles are located everywhere in those 4 quadrants, a lot of us even disagreeing with each other over the approaches the movement in general should take. For example, as briefly mentioned earlier, there are anti-contact pedophiles and there are pro-contact pedophiles, and both are indeed of the same nature, but one chooses the advocation of keeping to themselves to not potentially hurt children; while the other advocates for law changes in order to institute and normalize healthy adult-child relationships.
Many vividly remember when Milo Yiannopoulos, a right-wing speaker, advocated for hebephilia, for example (Video shared ahead of CPAC shows Milo Yiannopoulos appearing to speak fondly of relationships between men and ‘young boys’), though many of those in the right immediately went against him just for stating that controversial opinion. It is worth mentioning, however, that in conservative nature, the age of consent laws were relatively very low in the past where more traditional values were being held and practiced. (See here for brief information on pedophilia culture history) Now on the other hand, we have, in the relative modern time line, the liberal left approaching this topic ( ‘I’m a pedophile, but not a monster’: Man writes confronting essay asking Americans to ‘please understand’ the difference between pedophiles and child molesters), among with other groups who are operating independently and/or trying to merge with the existing LGBT (which is worth mentioning that they have officially denied having affiliations with pedophilia movement).
Pedophilia is not limited nor will always be identified with just one political spectrum. This sexual orientation has existed since many times before in history, it’s roots are not located in political but in cultures themselves, such as it was with homosexuality, among others. This is important to understand because everything, especially this movement (for this article’s relevance) is not originated from just mere political organizations, but from human interaction themselves, before there was even such things as politics. For this reason, it is a mistake to either identify pedophilia as either a left-wing or a right-wing movement, it’s just another sexuality struggling in these current times and with many divisions in itself and each respective individuals pursuing the way of life they think it is correct, with independent opinions on politics, rather than a common one as a marginalized group.
