Pedophilia: A Disorder, Not a Crime


Continue reading the main storyShare This Page









Credit Keith Negley

CAMDEN, N.J. — THINK back to your first childhood crush. Maybe it was a classmate or a friend next door. Most likely, through school and into adulthood, your affections continued to focus on others in your approximate age group. But imagine if they did not.

By some estimates, 1 percent of the male population continues, long after puberty, to find themselves attracted to prepubescent children. These people are living with pedophilia, a sexual attraction to prepubescents that often constitutes a mental illness. Unfortunately, our laws are failing them and, consequently, ignoring opportunities to prevent child abuse.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders defines pedophilia as an intense and recurrent sexual interest in prepubescent children, and a disorder if it causes a person “marked distress or interpersonal difficulty” or if the person acts on his interests. Yet our laws ignore pedophilia until after the commission of a sexual offense, emphasizing punishment, not prevention.

Part of this failure stems from the misconception that pedophilia is the same as child molestation. One can live with pedophilia and not act on it. Sites like Virtuous Pedophiles provide support for pedophiles who do not molest children and believe that sex with children is wrong. It is not that these individuals are “inactive” or “nonpracticing” pedophiles, but rather that pedophilia is a status and not an act. In fact, research shows, about half of all child molesters are not sexually attracted to their victims.

A second misconception is that pedophilia is a choice. Recent research, while often limited to sex offenders — because of the stigma of pedophilia — suggests that the disorder may have neurological origins. Pedophilia could result from a failure in the brain to identify which environmental stimuli should provoke a sexual response. M.R.I.s of sex offenders with pedophilia show fewer of the neural pathways known as white matter in their brains. Men with pedophilia are three times more likely to be left-handed or ambidextrous, a finding that strongly suggests a neurological cause. Some findings also suggest that disturbances in neurodevelopment in utero or early childhood increase the risk of pedophilia. Studies have also shown that men with pedophilia have, on average, lower scores on tests of visual-spatial ability and verbal memory.

The Virtuous Pedophiles website is full of testimonials of people who vow never to touch a child and yet live in terror. They must hide their disorder from everyone they know — or risk losing educational and job opportunities, and face the prospect of harassment and even violence. Many feel isolated; some contemplate suicide. The psychologist Jesse Bering, author of “Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us,” writes that people with pedophilia “aren’t living their lives in the closet; they’re eternally hunkered down in a panic room.”

While treatment cannot eliminate a pedophile’s sexual interests, a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication can help him to manage urges and avoid committing crimes.

But the reason we don’t know enough about effective treatment is because research has usually been limited to those who have committed crimes.

Our current law is inconsistent and irrational. For example, federal law and 20 states allow courts to issue a civil order committing a sex offender, particularly one with a diagnosis of pedophilia, to a mental health facility immediately after the completion of his sentence — under standards that are much more lax than for ordinary “civil commitment” for people with mental illness. And yet, when it comes to public policies that might help people with pedophilia to come forward and seek treatment before they offend, the law omits pedophilia from protection.

The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibit discrimination against otherwise qualified individuals with mental disabilities, in areas such as employment, education and medical care. Congress, however, explicitly excluded pedophilia from protection under these two crucial laws.

It’s time to revisit these categorical exclusions. Without legal protection, a pedophile cannot risk seeking treatment or disclosing his status to anyone for support. He could lose his job, and future job prospects, if he is seen at a group-therapy session, asks for a reasonable accommodation to take medication or see a psychiatrist, or requests a limit in his interaction with children. Isolating individuals from appropriate employment and treatment only increases their risk of committing a crime.

There’s no question that the extension of civil rights protections to people with pedophilia must be weighed against the health and safety needs of others, especially kids. It stands to reason that a pedophile should not be hired as a grade-school teacher. But both the A.D.A. and the Rehabilitation Act contain exemptions for people who are “not otherwise qualified” for a job or who pose “a direct threat to the health and safety of others” that can’t be eliminated by a reasonable accommodation. (This is why employers don’t have to hire blind bus drivers or mentally unstable security guards.)

The direct-threat analysis rejects the idea that employers can rely on generalizations; they must assess the specific case and rely on evidence, not presuppositions. Those who worry that employers would be compelled to hire dangerous pedophiles should look to H.I.V. case law, where for years courts were highly conservative, erring on the side of finding a direct threat, even into the late 1990s, when medical authorities were in agreement that people with H.I.V. could work safely in, for example, food services.

Removing the pedophilia exclusion would not undermine criminal justice or its role in responding to child abuse. It would not make it easier, for example, for someone accused of child molestation to plead not guilty by reason of insanity.

A pedophile should be held responsible for his conduct — but not for the underlying attraction. Arguing for the rights of scorned and misunderstood groups is never popular, particularly when they are associated with real harm. But the fact that pedophilia is so despised is precisely why our responses to it, in criminal justice and mental health, have been so inconsistent and counterproductive. Acknowledging that pedophiles have a mental disorder, and removing the obstacles to their coming forward and seeking help, is not only the right thing to do, but it would also advance efforts to protect children from harm.

Lord of the Rings Star Elijah Wood Says Hollywood Gripped by Powerful Pedophile Ring



Elijah Wood says Hollywood is gripped by a powerful pedophile ring and Tinseltown is covering up a ‘seedy’ underbelly full of predatory ‘vipers’


Elijah Wood, 35, claims young actors are being abused in Hollywood 

Says Tinseltown is allegedly sheltering around ‘100 active abusers’ 


Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood claims that young actors in Hollywood are being sexually abused by predatory high-powered ‘vipers’ working in the industry..

The Hobbit actor, 35, told The Sunday Times that the child abuse is ‘probably still happening’.


Shocking allegations that top Hollywood figures have been protecting child abusers have circulated widely in recent years.

Several industry figures have been convicted following claims of sex abuse and former child actors – including The Goonies actor Corey Feldman, 44 – claimed he was ‘surrounded’ by molesters when he was a teenager.


Anne Henry, co-founder of Bizparentz – a group to help young actors – said that Tinseltown is currently sheltering around ‘100 active abusers’.

Wood, who stars in his new film The Trust told The Sunday Times that his mother had protected him from abuse when he first arrived in Hollywood aged eight.

But he said: ‘I’ve been led down dark paths to realise that these things are probably still happening.’


The actor, who played Frodo Baggins in Lord of the Rings, believes that other actors remain in danger.

He added: ‘If you’re innocent, you have very little knowledge of the world and you want to succeed


‘People with parasitic interests will see you as their prey. What upsets me about these situations is that the victims can’t speak as loudly as the people in power.’

Wood was talking to the Sunday Times about Jimmy Savile, a British entertainer who sexually abused dozens of victims over five decades.

He was knighted by the Queen and his crimes were only revealed after his death, despite years of rumor and innuendo and led to allegations of a cover-up by government figures and broadcasting chiefs.

Henry believes that around three quarters of child actors that ‘went off the rails’ later in their life had been abused in Hollywood.

She said: ‘This problem has been endemic in Hollywood for a long time and it’s finally coming to light.

‘Very bad people are still working here, protected by their friends.’

In the last 10 years, several wealthy and significant people involved in the industry have been convicted.

Some have left prison and returned to Hollywood and continued to work with children.

Wood, who now knows he was lucky to avoid being abused, compared the allegations in Hollywood to the claims linked to Savile following his death in October 2011.


Wood said: ‘You all grew up with Savile – Jesus, it must have been devastating. Clearly something major was going on in Hollywood. It was all organised.

‘There are a lot of vipers in this industry. There is a darkness in the underbelly – if you can imagine it, it’s probably happened.’

Feldman, who was one of the biggest child stars in the 1980s, was abused when he was a young actor.

He said: ‘The No 1 problem in Hollywood was and is – and always will be – pedophilia.’

Other child actors were reportedly told by adults that it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the industry to have sexual relations.

Feldman told a British tabloid four years ago: ‘When I was 14 and 15, things were happening to me. These older men were leching around me like vultures.’

He went on to suffer with alcoholism, mental health problems and became addicted to drugs.

His friend, Corey Haim, another child actor, died of pnemonia aged 38 in 2010. Feldman claims a ‘Hollywood mogul’ is to blame for his friend’s death.

He said abusers are still working and are some of the richest and most powerful people in the business.


It was also claimed that a number of pool parties were held in Los Angeles during the late 1990s – primarily hosted by millionaire businessman Marc Collins-Rector.


At these parties, Collins-Rector and other men are said to have sexually assaulted teenage boys, according to lawsuits filed in 2000 and 2014.

I would certainly pray that this is not true strictly for children's sake but if it is there is no punishment sufficient for the perverts who would do such to a child. If true and it gets a proper investigation this could do more to "Drain the Swamp" than anything Trump could have imaged and to a degree never before seen in the US political landscape. I pray the net captures not only every vile pervert involved in any way but also any one who knew and participated in a cover up or protection of these animals. The death penalty is too lenient for someone who could even think of such with a child, much less carry it out. There is a special place in Hell for those who could do such harm to children.

The arrests begin more to come, did it start with Wiener's computer?



Police crack down on Norway's largest pedophile abuse network

In Norway's largest abuse case to date, 51 suspects are under investigation for being part of a pedophile network. The abuse of infants, in one case by a parent, is suspected.

Police seized more than 150 terabytes of abuse material

Norwegian police investigating a pedophile ring have arrested 20 people and identified 31 others as suspects.

At least one suspect acknowledged abusing his own children.

Deputy Police Chief Gunnar Floystad said on Sunday that 20 men have been arrested so far in Western Norway, with three convictions. There are 31 suspects in different regions.

Floystad told reporters that many of the suspects were highly educated and include lawyers and politicians.

He said he could not reveal more details pending the conclusion of the investigation, known as "Dark Room," which began in 2015.

Police seized 150 terabytes of material depicting many forms of child abuse, local media reported.

Prosecutors said the perpetrators met on the dark web, using encryption and anonymity to hide their tracks.

Norwegian tabloid Verdens Gang reported one of those arrested was a police officer.

The investigation began after information was shared from a 2015 FBI case, which involved hacking many dark web sites and discovering the identity of their users.

Arrests continued


An Internet pedophile ring with up to 70,000 members — thought to be the world's largest —has been uncovered by police, a security official said Wednesday.

The European police agency Europol said in a statement that "Operation Rescue" had identified 670 suspects and that 230 abused children in 30 countries had been taken to safety. More children are expected to be found, Europol said.

It said that so far 184 people had been arrested and investigations in some countries were continuing. Most of those detained are suspected of direct involvement in sexually abusing children.

They include teachers, police officers and scout leaders, AP reported. One Spaniard who worked at summer youth camps is suspected of abusing some 100 children over five years.

Europol director Rob Wainwright said Wednesday the ring, which communicated using an Internet forum, was "probably the largest online pedophile network in the world."

The father of Pacific castaway Jose Salvador Alvarenga said he was told his long-lost son vanished on a fishing trip but he didn’t have the heart to break the news to his ailing wife.

Cori Bassett, a public affairs officer for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said in an email that there had been five arrests and four convictions in connection with Operation Rescue in the U.S.

"Arrests so far have been made in Georgia and Connecticut. ICE continues to pursue the leads provided by Europol," she added.

The website was shut down following the three-year investigation, Europol said.

"The website operated from a server based in the Netherlands and, at its height, boasted up to 70,000 members worldwide," it added.


"It attempted to operate as a 'discussion–only' forum where people could share their sexual interest in young boys without committing any specific offences, thus operating 'below the radar' of police attention," Europol said.

"Having made contact on the site, some members would move to more private channels, such as email, to exchange and share illegal images and films of children being abused. Computers seized from those arrested have harvested huge quantities of child abuse images and videos," it added.

Police infiltrated site

The Europol statement said U.K. and Australian police infiltrated the site to identify the members who posed the greatest danger to children. Police also sometimes posed as children online as part of the investigation.


Law enforcement authorities from 13 countries, including the United States, Australia, Canada, Italy, Spain and the U.K., were involved in the case, Europol said.

The statement said Europol analysts had cracked the security features of a key computer server at the center of the network which uncovered the identities of suspected child sex offenders.

And, after his arrest, the forum's Dutch administrator helped police break encryption measures that shielded users' identities, allowing police to begin their covert investigations.

"Europol subsequently issued over 4,000 intelligence reports to police authorities in over 30 countries in Europe and elsewhere, which has led to the arrests of suspects and the safeguarding of children," Europol said.

Wainwright said he was proud of the "exceptional work of our experts in helping police authorities around the world to record these groundbreaking results."

"The safeguarding of so many vulnerable children is particularly rewarding and demonstrates the commitment of our agency to make Europe a safer place for its citizens," he added.

The investigation was led by Britain's Child Exploitation and Online Protection Center.

Peter Davies, of the center, said there would be more arrests as the investigations continue.


"Those who have been members of the site can expect a knock on the door in the very near future," he said.

In Britain, police said, the children involved were aged between 7 and 14.

Australian Federal Police commander Grant Edwards said suspects arrested in Australia ranged in age from 19 to 84 and used the Internet to "prey on children with anonymity, with subterfuge and with camouflage."

Children, Edwards said, "should be able to use the Internet safely, without fear of being approached or groomed by these online predators."

Meet HRC and Obama money bungler Terrence Patrick Bean............


A Lawyer Questioned Terry Bean in a Washington County Sex-Crime Case. Listen to Bean's Response.

Bean's former boyfriend found not guilty.

By Nigel Jaquiss | October 4, 2015

Terry Bean, the Portland gay-rights activist and real-estate investor, avoided trial last month on charges that he'd had sex with a 15-year-old boy, when the alleged victim refused to testify against Bean.


That refusal caused a Lane County Circuit Court judge to dismiss the case against Bean without prejudice, which means charges could be refiled if the alleged victim changes his mind and decides to testify.


The Sept. 1 trial dismissal meant that Oregonians never got to hear Bean, who has from the beginning of the investigation denied any wrongdoing, testify in court.


And when the Lane County charges were dismissed, Bean said that was the only fair outcome.


"I have been silent for almost a year on the advice of my attorney, but while I am relieved that the charges against me have been dropped, this nightmare never should have even begun," Bean said in a Sept. 1 statement. "I take some measure of comfort that the world now knows what I have always known – that I was falsely accused and completely innocent of every accusation that was made."


Less than two weeks later, in a related trial in Washington County, Bean actually did get a chance to testify.


In the Washington County case, Bean's former boyfriend, and his co-defendant in the Lane County case, Kiah Lawson, faced charges that he'd had sex with a 17-year-old boy in June 2013.


Lawson's attorney, Gabriel Biello, called Bean as a witness Sept. 10.


What happened next, says Professor Tung Yin, who teaches criminal law at Lewis & Clark Law School, was unusual.


On the advice of his attorney, Bean declined to respond to questions about his relationship with the young man who was the alleged victim in the Washington County case.


"I'm asserting my right under Article 12, section 1 of the Oregon Constitution and the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution not to answer any questions in this proceeding," Bean said, according to a tape of the hearing WW obtained from Washington County Circuit Court.


But because Bean told the court in advance he planned to assert his right to remain silent, he was allowed to respond to questions via telephone and outside the hearing of the jury.


"It's pretty rare for that privilege to be invoked," says Yin. "Many lawyers will never see it done."


The reason Bean was allowed to plead the Fifth outside the hearing of the jury is that under Oregon law, Yin says, a jury is not supposed to draw any "negative inference" from a witness declining to answer questions.


The day after Bean's telephone interview, the jury found Lawson not guilty.


Both the Lane and Washington county cases resulted from a 2014 investigation spurred by a WW cover story about Bean's troubled relationship with Lawson.


Derrick Ashton, Bean's attorney, did not respond to a request for comment.
