Major Newspaper Triggers Firestorm Calling Pedophilia ‘Misunderstood’

USA Today has triggered a firestorm of reaction by describing pedophilia as “misunderstood,” according to a column by Ben Johnson at the Daily Wire.

The article suggested that the attitude, sometimes described by supporters as involving those who are “minor-attracted,” is “among the most misunderstood” in America and it is no more than “inappropriate.”

What should happen is that it should be the subject of a “destigmatizing” efforts, the report said.

“Pedophilia is viewed as among the most horrifying social ills. But scientists who study the sexual disorder say it is also among the most misunderstood,” reported Alia E. Dastagir. “Researchers who study pedophilia say the term describes an attraction, not an action, and using it interchangeably with ‘abuse’ fuels misperceptions” about pedophiles.

The article said, “When most of the public thinks of pedophilia, they assume it’s synonymous with child sexual abuse, a pervasive social problem that has exploded to crisis levels online.” (Read more from “Major Newspaper Triggers Firestorm Calling Pedophilia ‘Misunderstood'” HERE)
