Eek! A Male! Pedophile hysteria hurts and kills children

Imagine, putting ointment on a 3 month old’s vagina.  Every man is a suspect for pedophilia. Soon no father will dare to change his daughter’s diapers. Avid consumers of child abuse books on Amazon have a dirty mind. 30 years ago, before the pedophilia hysteria, the idea of abusing a 1 year old would not even have crossed the mind of 99.99% of males. Very rare a man would have sexual thoughts when dealing with a nude toddler.  Just as absurd as thinking of sex with a dog, a cat, a duck, or a car muffler.  It was just a non-issue.  Now such ideas about toddler sexuality pollute everybody’s mind, law enforcement, and societal habits.

Consider the Iowa daycare center where Nichole Adkins works. The one male aide employed there, she told me in an interview, is not allowed to change diapers. “In fact,” Ms. Adkins said, “he has been asked to leave the classroom when diapering was happening.”

Now, a guy turned on by diaper changes has got to be even rarer than a guy turned on by Sponge Bob. But “Worst-First” thinking means suspecting the motives of any man who chooses to work around kids.

[…]the British Musicians’ Union warned its members they are no longer to touch a child’s fingers, even to position them correctly on the keys? Or that a public pool in Sydney, Australia last fall prohibited boys from changing in the same locker room as the men? (According to the Daily Telegraph in Sydney, the men demanded this, fearing false accusations.)[…]

And that’s not the worst. In England in 2006, BBC News reported the story of a bricklayer who spotted a toddler at the side of the road. As he later testified at a hearing, he didn’t stop to help for fear he’d be accused of trying to abduct her. You know: A man driving around with a little girl in his car? She ended up at a pond and drowned.

We think we’re protecting our kids by treating all men as potential predators. But that’s not a society that’s safe. Just sick.   Eek! A Male! (Wall Street Journal)
