“Sexual behaviors are common in children. More than 50% of children will engage in some type of sexual behavior before their 13th birthday.5,6 In 1 retrospective study of 339 child welfare and mental health professionals in which participants were asked about their own experiences before 13 years of age, 73% recalled engaging in sexual behaviors with other children, 34% recalled showing their genitals to another child, 16% recalled simulating intercourse with another child, and 5% recalled inserting an object in the vagina or rectum of another child.7 Another study8 of female undergraduates reported that 26% recalled exposing themselves, 17% recalled unclothed genital touching, and 4% recalled oral-genital contact during childhood.”
COMMENT from SUBMITTER:
Sexual behaviors of children according to American Academy of Pediatrics – flashraid99
I directly knew prepubescent children, when I was a kid myself…who explicitly had sex with each other…repeatedly, on a semi-regular basis…I’ve written about and referenced it a number of times, over the decades…
It is anecdotal, of course…but it’s one of the major reasons why I have no hesitation or qualms, over accepting that children in fact are sexual beings…I’ve seen it first hand…Anyone rejecting this fact about children, is either ignorant or a liar.
Some people will quibble and reject, behind the declaration that “children don’t know what they’re doing, nor every imaginable consequence possible”…
…Well…La Te Da!…So?…And?…
…This has absolutely no barring, on whether or not children are sexual human beings, nor on what they are inclined by nature to do.
From what I have seen…children are quite horny little creatures, very enthusiastic to engage in fun sexual activities when given the chance.
Am I to believe that all the children who have engaged in these sorts of activities, are absolute freaks of nature?

“Are Mark Esper’s days in the Trump administration numbered?
Secretary of Defense Mark Esper is on shaky ground with the White House after saying Wednesday that he does not support using active duty troops to quell the large-scale protests across the United States triggered by the death of George Floyd and those forces should only be used in a law enforcement role as a last resort.
Speaking from the Pentagon briefing room podium, Esper noted that “we are not in one of those situations now,” distancing himself from President Donald Trump’s recent threat to deploy the military to enforce order.

“Barack Obama has a solution to the global wide unrest, and it’s very Obama-like.
As millions of people across the country take to the streets and raise their voices in response to the killing of George Floyd and the ongoing problem of unequal justice, many people have reached out asking how we can sustain momentum to bring about real change.
Ultimately, it’s going to be up to a new generation of activists to shape strategies that best fit the times. But I believe there are some basic lessons to draw from past efforts that are worth remembering.
First, the waves of protests across the country represent a genuine and legitimate frustration over a decades-long failure to reform police practices and the broader criminal justice system in the United States. The overwhelming majority of participants have been peaceful, courageous, responsible, and inspiring. They deserve our respect and support, not condemnation – something that police in cities like Camden and Flint have commendably understood.
On the other hand, the small minority of folks who’ve resorted to violence in various forms, whether out of genuine anger or mere opportunism, are putting innocent people at risk, compounding the destruction of neighborhoods that are often already short on services and investment and detracting from the larger cause. I saw an elderly black woman being interviewed today in tears because the only grocery store in her neighborhood had been trashed. If history is any guide, that store may take years to come back. So let’s not excuse violence, or rationalize it, or participate in it. If we want our criminal justice system, and American society at large, to operate on a higher ethical code, then we have to model that code ourselves.

“LA’s police chief thinks protesters are responsible for the death of George Floyd.
At a press conference held by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti on Monday, the city’s police chief, Michel Moore, initially sought to place blame on those fomenting violence.
“Last night,” said Moore, “just under 700 arrests. Of that, just under 70 were for looting and burglarizing.”
Of the incident that sparked the protests, the death of George Floyd after his arrest by Minneapolis police, Moore said, “His death is on their hands, as much as it is on those officers.’

“Someone is FINALLY standing up to Trump, but it’s still not enough!
A Pentagon policy adviser, James Miller, resigned from the Defense Advisory Board on Tuesday in a clear rebuke of Defense Secretary Mark Esper’s role in the violent dispersal of anti-racism protesters from Lafayette Square for a presidential photo op on Monday.
In a resignation letter obtained by the Washington Post, Miller denounced Esper “visibly” supporting the excessive crowd-control measures, calling it a violation of the nation’s top defense official’s oath of office.
