We are not pedophiles. We have no interest in children or their indecent depictions.

We make extreme efforts to not run afoul of any law, not even by mistake or accident 1 2 3 .

We are interested in truth, free academic research, in protection and happiness for children 5.
We are against unnecessary witch hunts that demonize and imprison people with unnecessary rigor and that criminalize a huge percentage of the (male) population.


The biggest of all taboos: to research, study or discuss adult-child sexuality.

We have been warned. We will be called pedophiles. We may suffer vigilante action. We may suffer government prosecution. We should not mess with the topic adult-child sex.

Yes we are talking about real children under 12 years of age, not just 17 year old adolescent young adults, re-defined as "children" by feminist dogma and by the *United Nations.

The Rind Study serves as a warning: a prestigious, peer reviewed meta analysis, published in one of the most prestigious journals of the American Psychological Association: probably the only piece of peer reviewed academic research condemned by unanimous vote by both the United States Senate and Congress.

The authors’ stated goal was “…to address the question: In the population of persons with a history of CSA [child sexual abuse], does this experience cause intense psychological harm on a widespread basis for both genders?” Some of the authors’ more controversial conclusions were that child sexual abuse does not necessarily cause intense, pervasive harm to the child;[3] that the reason the current view of child sexual abuse was not substantiated by their empirical scrutiny was because the construct of CSA was questionably valid; and that the psychological damage caused by the abusive encounters depends on whether the encounter was consensual or not.  Wikipedia on Bruce Rind 

The US Senate and Congress have decided, once and for all, by dogmatic fiat: "child sexual abuse" is is extremely traumatic under all circumstances.  Academic research must not arrive at any different conclusions.

Such a shocking interference of religious and moral zealots with scientific truth has not happened since Galileo Galilei: a few centuries ago, the catholic church decreed the "scientific truth" that the sun revolves around the earth.

The Trauma Myth

Susan Clancy inadvertently stumbled over the unpopular truth, as published in

The Trauma Myth: The Truth About the Sexual Abuse of Children–and Its Aftermath .

All hell broke loose. I was bombarded with accusations that I was hurting victims even more than they already had been and that I was a friend of pedophiles. I was also vilified by many in my own scientific community. Some colleagues and graduate students stopped talking to me. A well-meaning professor told me to pick another research topic because I was going to rule myself out of a job in academia. Some felt my research had a political agenda, one biased against victims. I was invited to give a talk about my research at Cambridge Hospital—home of the tremendously influential sexual abuse treatment program Victims of Violence. No one from the program showed up. Clancy (pp. 77-78).

Researchers refuse to discuss issues in a seminar?! The most convinced adversaries never counter with true research, with true arguments?

This is the sad state of affairs. A dogma does not need to be discussed scientifically. The Bible has the definite answer. The US senate made the scientific decision.

And Human-Stupidity has the insanity to question and analyze the dogma.

 

Human-Stupidity is open to science. Just prove me wrong, using science.

  1. TruthWillSetYouFreeIf unbiased free academic research can show that 17 year olds get traumatized for life for having sex with older people, we will support age-of-consent laws.
  2. If the Rind study, and Susan Clancy can be proven wrong, by free unbiased academic research, we will support draconian decade-long punishments for all childhood sexuality. 
  3. We would stand corrected if the voodoo theory could be proven true, by free unbiased academic research: if it were proven that looking at photos of lightly clothed 15 year olds, downloaded for free from the internet does irreparable harm to the minors depicted. If that harm is so perverse that looking at the photos ruins the model’s life forever. And that downloading free photos truly stimulates the rape and abuse of innumerous children. Then we might agree that life in prison without parole is a proper punishment for possession of a few hundred photos, which are nothing else then 0′s and 1′s in files on a computer hard drive.

But against all odds, Milton Diamond, in peer reviewed research, proved the opposite: freely available child pornography reduces sex crimes against children, because many pedophiles can satisfy themselves merely by perusing pictures.

Brazil‘s ECA (Statute of children and adolescents law is an example for well meant liberal political correctness run amok. No matter how many horrendous crimes an under 18 year old commits, s/he will only be sent for educational measures of maximum 3 years, and will receive a clean police record after age 18.

JOVENS QUE PARTICIPARAM DE TIROTEIO NO VEL”RIO DE MOISES MARTINS, ASSASSINADO ONTEM, 07PL1110, 07/05/2012, POLICIA, ADRIANA PIMENTEL,Children can make career in organized crime, as executioners and murderers. The liberal law guarantees them virtual impunity. Here is an especially extreme case:

The teenager accused of double murder in Marazion, was arrested provisionally and will be held for 45 days. After that date, if the process is not judged in a timely manner, he will be released.  Teen killer 

It is absolutely impossible to get a verdict in 45 days. The police inquiry alone takes longer. He already has accusations for other murders that still are in the phase of police inquiry. 

Now if he were judged and convicted, the most he could get is: 3 years of educational measures and his criminal past wiped clean after age 18 (or 2?).

Liberal political correctness is a crime against honest law abiding people. Imagine you contract a 21 year old after getting a clean police background check. But in reality he has killed half a dozen people, but his record has been wiped clean, as required by law!

hollande-strauss-kahnSocialist Hollande triumphs in French presidential poll, thanks to Nafissatou Diallo and feminist rape and harassment laws. Hollande had already declared he would run against Strauss-Kahn in the Socialist primary race last year when Strauss-Kahn’s political career was cut short by allegations he had assaulted and attempted to rape the New York hotel worker Nafissatou Diallo. Charges against Strauss-Kahn were eventually dropped, with prosecutors citing "substantial credibility issues" with the alleged victim. 1

Nafissatou Diallo had accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn of rape. Feminist pressure ahs dismantled due process specifically in rape accusations. So Dominique Strauss-Kahn was imprisoned upon a mere unproven and uncorroborated accusation. Were he a mere mortal without a million dollar dream team of lawyers, investigators, and bail payments, he probably would not have escaped and spend decades in prison. But still, his career was over. Thanks to this unproven accusation by Nafissatou Diallo, a proven liar and embezzler. Add to this some other accusations of improper and somewhat aggressive pursuit of women. Such harassment laws, also espoused by feminists, protect women from the terrible trauma of being pursued with too much zeal by men.

Nafissatou-Diallo-menteuseHuman-Stupidity keeps wondering why feminism is not about female empowerment, about finding the inner strength so they could deal with verbal behavior without needing protection of a police state.

Were it not for Nafissatou Diallo, and feminist rape and harassment legislation, Strauss Kahn would have remained his party’s favorite and is likely to have been in the race and might have become French president. Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s arrest paved the way for a goal that had long eluded the political career of 57-year-old French Socialist François Hollande: to square off against President Nicolas Sarkozy in next month’s election. The international monetary fund got a different chief with different policy regarding the Euro. A hedge fund manager could have made Billions had he foreseen Strauss-Kahn‘s arrest and the subsequent fluctuations of the exchange rate.  Many powerful men have been marred and destroyed by women’s allegations.

The Brazilian Supreme court awarded US$ 110,000 of moral damages to a daughter who felt emotionally abandoned and felt treated as second class daughter by her father. The court dismissed the father’s defense that this emotional abandonment was caused by the mother’s aggressive behavior. Also the fact that paternity of the now adult daughter was only officially established recently.

Such legal liability is now in the process of being incorporated into the ECA statute of adolescent and children’s rights.

The intent of giving emotional support is noble. Human-Stupidity deplores the overcriminalization and total regulamentation of all aspects of human behavior under the threat of heavy civil liabilities.

Due to the importance of such decisions to Libertarians,  the men’s rights (and feminist) movement, we translated two newspaper articles in their entirety.

Translation: Superior Tribunal in Brazil orders father to pay compensation for emotional abandonment 
(STJ condena pai a indenizar filha por abandono afetivo)brazilian-supreme-court

SAO PAULO – The Third Chamber of the Superior Court of Justice (STJ) ordered a father to pay R $ 200 thousand [US$ 110 000] to his daughter for "emotional distance". The decision is unprecedented. In 2005, the Fourth Chamber of the Supreme Court had rejected moral damages for emotional distance.

The case judged originates from São Paulo. The author of the case obtained judicial recognition of paternity and filed suit against the father because he had suffered material and emotional neglect during childhood and adolescence. The trial judge dismissed the petition and attributed the father’s distance to "aggressive behavior" of her mother towards the father. The woman appealed to the appeals court and said the father was "wealthy and prosperous." The Court of São Paulo (TJSP) reversed the judgment and set the compensation for R$ 415,000.

On appeal to the Supreme Court, the father argued that there was no abandonment, and even if he had done so, there would be illegal to be financially indemnified and the only possible punishment for failing with such obligations fathers would be the loss of family power.

Minister Nancy Andrighi , the of the court’s third chamber, however, understood that it is possible to demand compensation for moral damage caused by emotional abandonment by parents. "Love is optional, care is duty," she said in the sentence. For her, there is no reason to treat the damage to family relationships differently from other civil damages.

Young men raging with high testosterone levels make the bravest and most heroic fighters. The same hormones cause these soldiers to have high sex drives.

These war heroes, ready to die for their country, are taken overseas and kept away from women, confined among men, for months on end. Pent-up sexuality due to suchanti prostitution  policy may cause higher rates of harassment, date rape, forcible rape. Young immature soldiers may embark on premature marriages, whose consequences and failures will come to financially and emotionally haunt the men for the rest of their life. Heterosexual men might reluctantly engage in homosexuality just to relieve pressure, similar to prisons situations.

Women are now allowed in the armed forces. Harassment charges prevent soldiers from joking and bonding like they used to for millennia. Add to this the danger of date rape accusations or false rape charges and the low level of evidence needed to be convicted of rape.

All this might sap morale of troops, reduce fighting capacity and discourage army enrollment.


18 USC § 1384 prohibits American military to solicit prostitutes, Adult men, ready to die for their country,  but not allowed to take care of their pent up sexual urges. 1 year in prison for visiting a legal brothel and helping the local economy? High testosterone levels make men courageous fighters, and make them more sexual.

USFK_Prostitution_WarningFor what reasons, and to what deleterious effects does the US government interference in the life of millions, preventing them from perusing legal sex work in other countries.

We don’t outlaw soldiers’ use of IPhones or Nike sneakers, under threat of imprisonment, just because there are some irregularities in their factories.

Instead, we try to solve the problem. We inspect companies, encourage them to engage in fair labor practices. Similarly we could encourage correct practices in prostitution.

  • Blackmailing of US personnel by foreign agents is less a danger when prostitution visits are legal. 1 year prison terms with dishonorable discharge make any soldier that ever visited a prostitute a potential target of blackmail. Even those who do not frequent prostitutes can be blcackmailed with threats of false accusations of prostitution. Any girl friend, any prostitute he did not hire can allege he offered or gave her money.
  • Health problems, VD can be controlled by information and careful sexual practices.
  • Sex trafficking is mostly a lie. Where it exists it can usually be fought by legalizing prostitution and work visas for willing qualified foreign prostitutes.

Unfortunately, the Antifeminist seems right again: the feminist sexual trade Union wants to raise the price of sex, so women can get the maximum benefit and commitment out of men, in exchange of sex and promise of sex.

All other arguments are phony excuses backed by exaggerated and falsified data. Remember Robert Kurzban about finding non-existent victims to justify our pre-conceived beliefs.

Human-Stupidity is against pre-conceived dogma, in favor of truth, knowledge and research. Thus we suggest a few ……..

Politically incorrect academic research projects

How does prohibition of prostitution in general, but especially in military personnel deployed overseas cause problems?

What is the impact on military  men (and civilians) if all their sexual outlets get cut off systematically, under the threat of imprisonment? Does this

  • increase levels of depression
  • incite immature young men and adolescents to get married, with all the subsequent dangers of traumatic divorce, life-long wage slavery, alimony, child support
  • cause rape and serious date rape due to lack of sexual outlets and pent-up sexual frustration
  • (compare Milton Diamond‘s research on how legalized pornography reduces sex crimes)
  • cause heterosexual men in the military to seek homosexual relations, just like prisoners?
  • What are the psychological effects of reluctant homosexual acts on heterosexual men?
  • impact morale of the military and reduce fighting readiness
  • discourage men from enlisting for the military
  • encourage women to become gold diggers, to exploit the marriage, divorce and harassment industry to earn money, because their chances of openly and honestly charging money engaging in prostitution is curtailed?
  • Is there research how sex tourism, prostitution visits impact men’s well being, by measuring levels of life satisfaction, productivity, depression, serotonin.
  • How did soldiers’ vacations to Subic Bay, Angeles City and Bangkok brothels impact morale, well being and fighting reediness?

Anyone has information and links on Northern European countries sponsoring visits to prostitutes for social security recipients as a means for emotional health? There should be some research backing such policies.

In most countries, nobody ever would get funding for my proposed projects. This is another reason we need men’s studies to counteract repressive anti-scientific women’s studies ideologies.
