“The New York City Administration for Children’s Services will no longer work with Theo Sandfort, a professor who headed a separate study on LGBTQ youth in foster care.”
COMMENT from SUBMITTER:
In 2015, New York City’s child welfare agency worked with Professor Sandfort on a research initiative into foster children. Research findings, released last November, indicated that over a third of young people in the city’s foster care system identify as LGBTQ and struggle to find the support they need. The ‘groundbreaking’ study was praised by advocacy groups and academics.
This was before critics of the child welfare agency pointed out the nature of Professor Sandfort’s previous research, specifically: a historical study in 1984 that included interviews with minors in the Netherlands who described their sexual relationships with adult men as ‘positive’.
Theo Sandfort is the latest academic to be hunted down and hounded out of a job for undertaking the ‘wrong’ research. Charles Murray, author of The Bell Curve, is another. What is so ironic about Theo’s dismissal, is the fact that he is simultaneously highly praised and massively denigrated in equal measure on a single topic: childhood sexuality.”
Well, yes…they do like to attack and destroy useful, constructive initiatives and the people involved with them, because their own personal sense of moral outrage is so much more important than actually finding solutions that help actual people, and combating actual suffering in this world.
The politics interjecting themselves into human sexuality, are an abject failure…an abandonment of actual science and truth…and an assault on the people.
