B4U-Act is a 501(c)(3) organization in Maryland that was established “to publicly promote services and resources for self-identified individuals (adults and adolescents) who are sexually attracted to children and seek such assistance, to educate mental health providers regarding the approaches helpful for such individuals, to develop a pool of providers in Maryland who agree to serve these individuals and abide by B4U-ACT’s Principles and Perspectives of Practice, and to educate the citizens of Maryland regarding issues faced by these individuals,” according to the group’s website.I suspect the citizens of Maryland are more concerned about protecting their children from these monsters, than being educated about the issues faced by them. Should they become so tolerant of the needs of these monsters that they would be willing to sacrifice their children to fill the needs of the monsters>
Perhaps that sounds innocent enough (although I don’t think so). Let’s give them the benefit of the doubt for a second: What’s wrong with psychiatrists seeking to help those attracted to children better understand why they have that tendency?I don't object to them treating the monsters, but they should follow the law, and they should not seek to make the public tolerant of the needs of the monsters
Perhaps those psychiatrists could even be an instrument of crime prevention or of after-the-fact justice. But no. Consider: At least one psychiatrist in the bunch has been known to treat child molesters without reporting them, Bream said.Obey the law, and protect the children.
Last week, the group hosted a scientific symposium to discuss a proposed new definition of pedophilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association. Presenters expressed a wide range of views — but the thrust of the B4U-Act movement appears to be, ultimately, to decriminalize pedophilia.Not only NO, but HELL NO.
As all too often happens with any kind of push for political correctness, with a twist of language, the blameless are forgotten.The children must be protected.
