U of Toronto's pedophilia-friendly acceptance of the idea of the "erotic child" is evil

For the vast majority of us who are parents, we see our primary duty as the protection of our children's well-being.

That duty manifests in different ways, among them the need to provide education, opportunities and guidance that will allow our kids to mature into successful, happy, well-adjusted, productive members of society. But at its most basic level, protection means exactly what the word implies, to keep them from imminent harm, be that assault, starvation, abuse or worse.

The way the world works, at some point, to some extent almost all of us have to delegate some of that protection to others. Out of necessity we hand our children over to care-givers and educators. With no small measure of parental trepidation, we place faith that those people we trust share our interests in protecting and nurturing our children.

The worst nightmare for a parent, and of course, for any child so victimized, is when that faith is betrayed in despicable ways. It doesn't happen most of the time. But it does happen.

Next month, The University of Toronto and its Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE)  will be holding a symposium for schoolteachers called Bodies at Play: Sexuality, childhood and classroom life in which the keynote speaker will be University of Southern California Professor James R. Kincaid.

The ideas behind that choice suggest are both a betrayal of trust and confirmation that the nightmare we fear for our children is real.  (more...)
