Left-wing website publishes pedophile op-ed

Rebel Staff
 

A U.S. liberal news website has published an article written by a self-described pedophile asking readers to “please understand” and “learn to accept” the difference between pedophiles and child molesters. 

The essay, written by Todd Nickerson, a freelance graphic designer and “aspiring author” from Tennessee, was posted to Salon.com on Monday.

He writes how being a pedophile is a “curse of the first order, a completely unworkable sexuality.”

Nickerson explains: “I’ve been stuck with the most unfortunate of sexual orientation, a preference for a group of people who are legally, morally and psychologically unable to reciprocate my feelings and desires.”

“Yet, I am not the monster you think me to be,” Nickerson continues, in an effort to debunk the the notion that all pedophiles are predatory beings.

“I’ve never touched a child sexually in my life and never will, nor do I use child pornography.”

Portraying pedophilia as a sexual orientation, as opposed to a psychiatric disorder as it is widely regarded, Nickerson describes how he struggled to cope as a child after being born without his right hand.

The deformity, he says, coupled with a bladder problem he developed at elementary school, contributed to the “heaping pile of insecurities” he struggled with as an introverted child.

Nickerson’s so-called “Eureka moment,” marking the time he realized he could no longer continue the self-denial badgering his mental state as a child, came when he was 13 years old.

“One day, as I was sketching in my grandparents’ living room, a neighbour of theirs came to visit with his seven-year-old daughter in tow […] I can still see her today in my mind’s eye,” he wrote.

But, it was six years earlier, when Nickerson was seven years old, that he was molested by a man, who he refers to as Hans, a German friend of his uncle’s, in the front yard of his grandparents’ home.

Recalling the incident, Nickerson said the two were sitting down in the garden when “out of the blue, Hans slipped a hand into my shorts.”

“No authorities were called [despite Nickerson telling his grandmother of the incident], and life went on as usual,” he continued.

Questioning the theories of what leads to pedophilia, whether the condition is linked to abuse or whether it might be genetic, Nickerson elaborates to conclude that other factors are at play.

“I think it’s safe to say that many pedophiles have deep-seated feelings of inferiority in one way or another, or at least we did when our sexuality was forming, and this becomes a downward spiral during puberty and beyond,” Nickerson wrote.

“Anything can be the trigger of this: disabilities, weight issues, or just general feelings of unattractiveness.”

Boo-hoo.

Strikingly, Nickerson, who also works as a moderator for the website Virtuous Pedophiles, an online forum for so-called “non-offending pedophiles”, finished the op-ed with an appeal to the wider public.

“Please, be understanding and supportive. It’s really all we ask of you. Treat us like people with a massive handicap we must overcome, not as a monster. If we are going to make it in the world without offending, we need your help.”

After working 25 years in Correctional facilities in direct contact with pedophiles I applaud your admission of this is wrong. Most wont admit that. You are one of the people afflicted with this condition I would have strived to help however I could. I feel for you. However understand that I believe that the safety and security of our children comes first before all else and so long as you present the slightest of a threat to them you must remain locked up. If a person is an untreated pedophile and doesnt realize the wrong of theyre actions then I keep my thoughts to myself as to the best recourse for them.

It is clear pedophiles will be the next left wing martyr. Our culture has made it clear they are willing to throw children under the bus for the benefit of women – abortion rights promoted at the expense of the unborn child, children’s futures destroyed in divorces which are overwhelmingly initiated by women, children being used as pawns by divorced mothers.
Why would our culture care if children get sexually abused by some poor unfortunate pedophile who is “born that way” and therefore cannot be discriminated against.?

BRAVO ZULU : I directly witnessed the acts of ‘bacha bazi’ while I was there. It is apparently socially accepted there in some circles and is rampant in Pakistan as well. Some groups don’t even hide the fact they participate in this and will gleefully brag about it even on TV.

VERNON DICUS : Active pedophiles do lifetime damage to people and their families in our society, and in any society actually. Afghanistan and Pakistan are considered backwards even by Islamic standards. Your attempt at justifying this is vile and about as anti-social as you can get. Our family has had issues with them and some of the victims are beyond redemption, even as they approach the ends of their lives. Trust me when I say this, If I could have killed the prick who did this to my family, I would have, even if it meant a life sentence. Some shit is worth the sacrifice.

Vernon’s pro-NAMBLA views have nothing to do with Nickerson’s. They are, in fact, diametrically opposed. Nickerson is law-abiding. Having sex of any kind with a child is criminal.

This group is not new but has been closeted, for obvious reasons. People DO misunderstand and treat non-offending pedophiles like lepers and monsters. I think it is admirable for those few non-offending pedophiles to organize to support one another to resist their urges and to develop age-appropriate relationships. But my advice to any non-offending pedophile remins this. Stay in the closet where you are safe. If you come out, you will be so hated you will never recover.

@ Megan Kidd – bang on Megan.

If anyone here thinks the homosexual premier and her ilk do not have an agenda of spreading this then they are not as smart as they think they are.

The homosexual premier took the guidance of a convicted child molester and created her idea of nirvana.

Lots of kids for her ilk to have at their pleasure and at the same time start down the road of making it socially acceptable.

Somewhat like the bacha boys of Afghanistan – check it out on google.

Vernon is discribing the furture of Ontario after this new Sex-Ed brainwashing program is finished with our children.
God help our kids!
Doctors need to go back to calling homosexuality what is really is, a mental illness!
These sick people need to be put BACK into institutions where they can get the help they so desperately need.
Vernon has also reaffirmed that we need the death penalty brought back as well.

Vernon Dicus – you disgust me, and I hope you are caught, since you appear to enjoy the black art of sexual perversion, the perversion of our most innocent!

Anyone that thinks sexualizing children, doesn’t have long term effects on their psyche, and all of their relationships, is indeed twisted themselves. My Aunt, my older sister and myself were all abused sexually by an uncle, when we were 2-4 years old. It has taken my whole life dealing with the effects of incest, and many counseling sessions, over a 30-year period. So those who are so blind that they can’t understand the harm pedophilia causes, have never experienced the inability to trust anyone, due to their boundaries being torn down, by someone who couldn’t control his sexual urges. I think pedophiles are the dregs of humanity, and need to be kept far away from all children. They certainly shouldn’t be allowed a public voice, where they are fantasying about their perverted fantasies.

I hope “Anonymous” shuts this web site down for publishing such trash and I hope they track down the contributors/believers and digitally eviscerate them.

Riiiiight. Its “just” sexual orientation eh..??
This is nothing less than an ongoing attempt to desensitization…keep talking and pretty soon you’ll have the support of the rest of the Left and their pet deviants.

I am surprised the three trolls aren’t here telling us we are being too squeamish, and prudish and should accept.
commented 2015-09-25 12:10:27 -0400
It’s a well known fact that the farther to the left you are in your ideology, the more accepting you are of this kind of behavior and these kind of people. Just look at Roman Polanski, or Woody Allen for some very public examples.

It seems that the campaign to get pedophilia recognized as a sexual orientation rather than a crime is in full swing. The success of the homosexual and legal community in reducing homosexuality from a crime to a sexual orientation through the back door by regulation changes without a bill being debated in parliament has encouraged this new campaign. They even invented a non-crime called homophobia to suppress critics of homosexual perversions.

But the left is not pushing for this LOL. Sorry the left wants this to happen. They are all about their own selfishness. Funny how they rant on about priests yet pat sickos on the back if they attend the pride parade

Vernon Dickus you are pretty pathetic and scary. SOrry but some pedopihle science is not legitimate. I know people who were molested and they are very harmed.

Richard Vanderlubbe Infowars is full of garbage , with some good stuff, and they seem to love Putin for some reason, the site is so full of garbage , it is far from good

And when our “democratic” leaders invaded Afghanistan, to root out the terrorists, they ordered our soldiers to look the other way when they see boys dressed as girls, sitting on an elder’s lap in the back room. They ordered our soldiers to defend opium fields from sabatoge. This done to “win the trust of the locals”, they claimed. Anyone surprised that “democracy” in Afghanistan never worked?

We know who the terrorists are. They were allowed to fly out of the USA on 9/11 when all other flights were grounded. They were allowed to fund “Syrian rebels” with our tax dollars, and now out of that occultist genocide ritual, spur the need to accept trojan horse “refugees”. The reason the censored pages of the 9/11 commission report are classified is because they would show us directly who was the source of that attack… The Saudi Wahabbists and their globalist buddies.

Salon.com now says pedophiles are just misunderstood.

Salon.com routinely attacks and attempts to discredit Alex Jones and infowars.com…

Some folks here scoff at Alex Jones, say that he’s “fringe”, and whatever else about tin-foil hats. A tin-foil hat will not protect you, you’re gonna need a military-grade ballistics helmet once they push thru all the stuff he’s been reporting over the last decade or so. The very same foreign-funded “Arab Spring” faux revolution garbage is pushed on us in the form of Idle No More, Black Lives Matter… Now this crap, what would you call it, I guess “”tweet-url hashtag" href=“https://twitter.com/#!/search?q=%23PedophilesAreBornThisWay” title=“#PedophilesAreBornThisWay”>#PedophilesAreBornThisWay"??

Glad to see the Rebel crew covering what matters here. Your willingness to sometimes highlight these sort of subjects shows why the leftist media gatekeepers had SunNews put down… Can’t be trusted to respect the establishment/“fringe” boundary, will be begged to cover the so-called “fringe” on the insistence of its reader/viewership. +1 for the Rebel Sun.

Vernon Dicus, your statements here are far more troubling than those contained in Todd Nickerson’s article. You’re not just trying to rationalize and excuse sexually deviant desires as a condition beyond ones control, you’re advocating their unfettered practice. That is nothing less than perverse, evil, willful stupidity. I don’t give a damn what your stupid “scientific studies” say. Scientists and PhDs can be just as sick and perverted as anyone else, as was proven in the case of Benjamin Levin. If you actually believe the crap you’re spouting, you’re a sick, perverted, evil man and you have no business being anywhere near anyone under the legal age of consent. In fact, in my opinion, you have no business being anywhere near anyone, period. It’s people like you that are responsible for what will be the ultimate demise of western civilization.

There’s only one effective cure for child molesters, as Vlad Johnson so succinctly and properly suggests. So put the right tool in the hands of the state and legitimize the cure…
As for the pedophile enablers – the Media Party being a main enabler – well don’t get me started on the multitude of degenerates and commie scum who should be dealt with ‘effectively’ by the state…

Scientific studies based on legitimate empirical evidence do not support the mass hysteria and moral panic that currently surrounds all sexually expressed child/older person relationships, which are invariably cast as “child molestation/child sex abuse/pedophilia.” As masturbation and homosexuality were demonized in the past, these irrational emotional responses are based on ignorance and fear, and are promoted by agenda-driven “victimological” academics who argue that all such relationships are intrinsically pervasively harmful. But is this supposed harm intrinsic to the interaction, or does it instead result from the social hysteria that occurs when such a relationship is discovered? Also, there are no legitimate data supporting intrinsic harmfulness, and no credible pathway or mechanism for such harm has been demonstrated. For further discussion, see http://www.shfri.net/mech/mech.cgi

There are indeed some people who trick or force children into unwanted sexual interactions. But there are vast differences between consensual sexually expressed child/older person relationships and unilateral “child sexual abuse” by an older person.

Let’s see, same-sex marriage? Check, achieved. Polygamy? (via Islam) Check, on its way. Paedophilia? Check, started on normalizing. Bestiality? encountering unexpected opposition, defer to next generation. Incest? slowly on its way, now that marriage / sexual relations have been separated from having children.

These people need to read a little Darwin. That which does not promote spreading ones genes should not be allowed to propagate into the next generation (which includes all of the above except polygamy, and there are ways that it limits the gene pool too). That which causes a species to stop reproducing is bad. Leaving aside religious reasons for behaving oneself, if we think that Biology is a science then we shouldn’t support or promote such leanings for the good of humanity.
