01) Myths about Pedophilia

“Everything You Need to Know about Narcissists, Psychopaths, and Abuse – click on this link:

Pedophiles seem to have narcissistic and antisocial (psychopathic) traits. They lack empathy for their victims and express no remorse for their actions. They are in denial and, being pathological confabulators, they rationalize their transgressions, claiming that the children were merely being educated for their own good and, anyhow, derived great pleasure from it.

The pedophile’s ego-syntony rests on his alloplastic defenses. He generally tends to blame others (or the world or the “system”) for his misfortunes, failures, and deficiencies.

Pedophiles frequently accuse their victims of acting promiscuously, of “coming on to them”, of actively tempting, provoking, and luring (or even trapping) them.

The pedophile – similar to the autistic patient – misinterprets the child’s body language and inter-personal cues. His social communication skills are impaired and he fails to adjust information gained to the surrounding circumstances (for instance, to the kid’s age and maturity).

(From the book “Malignant Self-love: Narcissism Revisited” by Sam Vaknin – click on this link to purchase the print book, or 16 e-books, or 3 DVDs with 16 hours of video lectures on narcissists, psychopaths, and abuse in relationships:”

We are being accused of being “narcissists, antisocial psychopaths and abusers”?…

…Wonderfully horrible foot to start off on…My optimism for this one, is very, very low.

I feel like I’m shirking this off, by not giving much of a response to it.

This is from 2012, hence the reference to an “upcoming DSM 5 debate on pedo-hebephilia”.

There’s a lot of stereotyping here…

…Little, to nothing, I recognize as a positive comment about pedophiles.

Near the end, there are some interesting acknowledgements on the history of pedophilia permissive sex laws…and cultures which incorporated pedophilia.

He has a heavy accent, so I find it a bit harder to stay focused and pick things out…it’s also four in the morning, right now.

I’m mostly posting this, because I’ve been setting on this post for over three years.

    This guy is a total Asshole. No better than any “academic” from the 1940’s with a “paper” on homosexuality that began, “The degenerate, perverts and psychopathic, cross-dressing, fetishists, etc. etc. ….” He is not worth listening to at all. Sadly, even if he actually did have anything useful to bring to a discussion, his words at the beginning lose his audience.

      Yeah…I agree.

      When I first found this video, I was going to give a deeper response to it…or, I thought I was…

      I fell out of doing this sort of thing, and just didn’t want to take the leap.

      I finally watch the entire thing…and it’s virtually all stereotypes…with the “not all pedophiles” clarification, being the closest thing I can find to anything positively said about pedophiles.

      The guy is a sham.

      I have no idea, how he considers himself the be an “expert” on this topic.

    I assume this guy is Sam Vaknin. From Wiki: “In Israel in 1995 he was found guilty on three counts of securities fraud along with two other men, Nissim Avioz and Dov Landau. He was sentenced to 18 months’ imprisonment and fined 50,000 shekels (about $14,000), while the company was fined 100,000 shekels. In 1996, as a condition of parole, he agreed to a mental health evaluation, which noted various personality disorders. According to Vaknin, ‘I was borderline schizoid, but the most dominant was NPD’ and on this occasion he accepted the diagnosis, because, he wrote, ‘it was a relief to know what I had.'”

    Vaknin reminds me of another hysterical paedophobic snake-oil salesman … James Cantor.
