Is normalizing pedophilia the next cause celebre for left-wing zealots?
Liberal beacon of depravity, Salon.com, published an article Monday titled “I’m a pedophile, but not a monster,” in which a man named Todd Nickerson identifies himself as a pedophile who said he “never touched a child sexually in [his] life and never will, nor [does he] use child pornography. “
But what he does do is describe the moment he realized he was attracted to children — when he was 13 years old — and describes meeting a 7-year-old girl in much the same way a man might describe his mind’s image of Heidi Klum.
Nickerson, who calls himself a “law-abiding pedophile” does his best to make himself and other pedophiles appear to be the victims.
Hatred just serves to reinforce pedophilia in youngsters predisposed to it. It’s a form of cognitive bias called the Backfire Effect or polarization. Everyone does this to some extent. When challenged on deeply held beliefs, no matter how uncertain or incorrect they may be, we tend to dig in our heels. With sexuality, that effect is likely magnified because there’s a physiological component, a drive every bit as powerful as belief. In essence, your brain knows what it likes and isn’t going to take no for an answer. For that reason, the nature or nurture question with respect to sexual preference is ultimately irrelevant—it becomes all but hardwired soon enough, until it’s all you know. And it’s self-reinforcing, no matter how much you wish to dig it out.
Nickerson goes on to detail how he lost his job at Lowe’s after he was outed by an anti-pedophilia website and now subsists on food stamps and freelance graphic design work. He asks that all he wants people to do is accept pedophiles for who they are.
Is this argument starting to sound familiar?
For many social media users, including The Blaze’s Dana Loesch, it definitely was.

These people are monsters. Now Salon is trying to mainstream pedophilia. Is there no limit to their depravity? http://t.co/uOqZ5MqUXb — Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) September 21, 2015
First a story on our troops punished for defending boys from Afghan molesters, next @Salon defending pedophilia. Disgusting.

Child predation is a monstrous, barbaric, and grotesque act, it is *not* an orientation. A spot in hell for those who mainstream it. — Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) September 21, 2015
Just when you think Salon can’t sink any lower, they sink lower – No one should stand for normalizing pedophiles https://t.co/JkBaOzn7aP

@Salon The left doesn’t care about the rights of the unborn to not be murdered, why should their care about a childs right to not be raped?
