“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.

“The ‘Kentler Project’ in West Berlin routinely placed homeless children with pedophile men, assuming they’d make ideal foster parents. A study has found the practice went on for decades.
Starting in the 1970s psychology professor Helmut Kentler conducted his “experiment.” Homeless children in West Berlin were intentionally placed with pedophile men. These men would make especially loving foster parents, Kentler argued.
A study conducted by the University of Hildesheim has found that authorities in Berlin condoned this practice for almost 30 years. The pedophile foster fathers even received a regular care allowance.
Helmut Kentler (1928-2008) was in a leading position at Berlin’s center for educational research. He was convinced that sexual contact between adults and children was harmless.
Berlin’s child welfare offices and the governing Senate turned a blind eye or even approved of the placements.
What they found was a “network across educational institutions,” the state youth welfare office and the Berlin Senate, in which pedophilia was “accepted, supported, defended.”
To the people presuming this was allegedly so monstrous and traumatic…I don’t even know how you can live with yourselves, displaying that level of prejudice and bigotry.
We need more forward thinking people like Helmut Kentler in this world…at least he was trying something reasonable in good faith, instead of allowing the status quo, hand ringing nannies to run everything into insanity with their failed social model and policies.
Helmut Kentler was a true hero, within our species…the likes of which you just never see.
…and now they’re trying to drag him through the mud.

“A group of students at the University of Texas are calling for the firing of a classics professor who has written extensively on “pederasty”—socially acknowledged romantic relationships between adult men and teen boys—in ancient Greece.
Students claim Thomas Hubbard’s academic work “advocates for violent crime against teen boys” and is being celebrated in online communities that promote pedophilia. In writings reviewed by The Austin American-Stateman, which first reported on the clash, the professor of classics at UT’s College of Liberal Arts calls physical relationships between men and boys in ancient societies a “proper learning experience.”
Separately, in 2010, Hubbard reportedly wrote an article analyzing sexual consent among young boys in antiquity, calling current age of consent laws a “sad by-product” of a “naive and self-righteous era” comparable to prohibition.
“Contemporary American legislation premised on children’s incapacity to ‘consent’ to sexual relations stems from outmoded gender constructions and ideological preoccupations of the late Victorian and Progressive Era,” Hubbard reportedly wrote in the peer-reviewed journal Thymos: Boyhood Studies. “We should consider a different ‘age of consent’ for boys and girls.”
Thomas Hubbard has reportedly called age of consent laws a “sad by-product” of a “self-righteous era.” Students say his work “advocates for violent crime against teen boys.”
University spokesperson Shilpa Bakre told The Daily Beast on Thursday “the university condemns ideas or world views that exploit or harm individuals” but that “the study of controversial and even offensive ideas is protected by academic freedom and the First Amendment—as is the right of others to strongly disagree with and draw attention to those ideas.”
Those poor, poor, feeble minded students!…
…Their triggered moral outrage must be a terrible, unimaginable burden to bare!
How dare they have to hear or contemplate, anything they’ve never had to hear or contemplate on a controversial matter?
… … …
It’s extremely good that the college did not meekly submit to these idiots…a rare example of some degree of integrity.
It sounds like these feeble minded students don’t even know, what they are getting in a huff over.
