Their blog claims it was removed based on a request by the speaker who now fears for her life following her talk. They also claim that they have no control over any content of TedX presentations, which if true, is ridiculous since it is under their banner.

She should fear for her life the fucking monster.

She's playing the "we'll cure them if we love them" game. Utter bullshit

It's 100% true. They sold out and used their brand "TED" to allow anyone who pays to have these "TEDx" presentations. It was a cheap cash grab with the predictable outcome of making the entire brand even more of a laughing stock.

Did any of you actually watch the video? Here's the cliff notes:

  • Describes the definition of pedophilia according to mental illness classifications

  • Gives some stats about pedophiles: almost exclusively male (I think this is almost exclusively males are discovered, but whatever), roughly 1% of the population, not particularly likely to be any social class.

  • Child abuse must always remain illegal, but some pedophiles don't abuse children and some child abusers aren't pedophiles (in the sense that they're not primarily attracted to children, they do it for other reasons)

  • Repeats that child abuse is wrong and unacceptable

  • Pedophilia isn't a choice, it's an inbuilt drive (gee whiz, you think?)

  • Given that pedophiles exist in large numbers, and that social isolation is a risk factor for child abuse, the best way to avoid pedophiles become child abusers is to stop the secrecy and make it something they can talk about and seek help for (presumably like alcoholism or other mental disorders).

  • Yes this is uncomfortable to think about, but solving the problem rather than sweeping it under the rug is the responsible thing to do.

  • Repeats that forcing pedophiles into hiding increases the risk of child abuse, not decreases it.

  • GIves details of a program which attempts to treat pedophiles.

So to sum up:

  • Pedophilia is a fairly common mental illness

  • Not all pedophiles are child abusers

  • It's in our interest to treat pedophiles in order to prevent them from becoming abusers

Where's the part where she's normalising pedophilia? Where's the part where she's promoting child abuse?

You realize what the next step is, right?

First it becomes an illness. Next it becomes "we were born this way, dont be a bigot"

Next comes everyone who doesn't support my lifestyle is whatever-phobic.

Maybe you haven't been around long enough to see this play out with every sexual depravity known to man, but it is a well written play that we have all seen before.

The fact that the (((who))) now says that transgenderism isn't mental illness and gaming is shows exactly where they are going. Normal activities such as gaming and shooting will become something people need to hide and degeneracy will become normal.

He's a fucking Jew. He wants to rape white children because that's what Jews do, given the chance - they always want to rape and defile the superior race, in the hopes that by doing so they somehow prove that they're the "Chosen" of God. Fuck all the Jews, they're nothing more than inferior maggots who deserve to die, now.

Did YOU actually watch the video?

She opens with a sob story about poor little Jonas, the friendly neighborhood pedophile who feels so bullied by the pedophobic society around him:

Let me tell you about Jonas. Jonas is 19 years old. He studies law in Munich. In his spare time, he likes to play soccer. Jonas has a secret, which he thinks he cannot share with anyone. Not even with his best friend. Or with his parents. He's just too afraid. Of anger, rejection, and repulsion.

Jonas knows that he has to suppress his sexual drive for his entire life. And he also knows that there will never be a loving and fulfilling partnership that he can enter. Because Jonas is a pedophile. He's only attracted to female children between the ages of 6 and 12 years. But since he's aware of the consequences for the children, he has never given in to his sexual drive.

The whole thing narrated in the saddest voice she could muster. Oozing with pathos. Reeking of manipulation. Poor little Jonas. So afraid of the meanies around him, who are keeping him from a "loving and fulfilling partnership". So brave and selfless of him to think of our children's feelings, while lusting after them, and give himself blue balls instead of doing what he actually wants to do to them. What a hero.

And you ask: "Where's the part where she's normalizing pedophilia?"

Are you for real right now?

If you are older than 30, we saw that s exact modus operandi with faggots.

Now it's playing out with trannies.

And now they are starting the pedos.

This is no lt new, and I'm horrified that faggots and trannies can adopt children.

That's already an attempt at saying it's failry "normal". And no, it isn't.

Not all pedophiles are child abusers

Who gives a fuck? That doesn't make it better.

I don't care what their fucking "interests" are in complete fuckups that don't deserve to function in society. I honestly don't care. Fuck them. They should be instiutionalized or chemically castrated.

Where's the part where she's normalising pedophilia? Where's the part where she's promoting child abuse?

By defending pedophilia. I hope you have an innocent happy little kid and I want to see how you react if some fucking pedo rapes his ass and fucks up his entire life just so the sick fuck can drop a load. Then I want to you to think about how "ok" pedos are.

Wow, way to immediately jump into the communist camp. Wanting a kid raped to prove your point is so far out there you aren't any better than a pedo.

You must have an odd definition of "normal" if it includes things like schitzophrenia and pyromania

Who gives a fuck? That doesn't make it better.

It changes the game theory of how to deal with them.

I don't care what their fucking "interests" are in complete fuckups that don't deserve to function in society. I honestly don't care. Fuck them. They should be instiutionalized

But you should care, because your proposal will likely result in more of them offending. Which do you want to do more, jerk off your justice-boner or protect children?

or chemically castrated.

She did mention medication. What did you think she was talking about? Asperin?

Given that pedophiles exist in large numbers, and that social isolation is a risk factor for child abuse, the best way to avoid pedophiles become child abusers is to stop the secrecy and make it something they can talk about and seek help for (presumably like alcoholism or other mental disorders).

I doubt that this would be the best way. I think the best way would be children that are better raised - therefore less easily available victims and opportunities for pedophiles. Maybe also less pedophiles in the first place or at least less pedophiles that act out (more self control if you grow up in a good environment).

Most children let themselves get molested because the pedophile gives them attention and love or nurturing they do not receive elsewhere in exchange and/or because they are timid and have no one to talk to about. Violent rapes by strangers are the exception (albeit they seem to become more common in the UK.)

She does say in the talk that loyalty and ease of access of children are bigger contributors than pedophilia which allegedly only 1/3rd of child abusers are.

More awareness would probably also be more helpful overall, especially when it comes to women on boy or women on girl molestation and rape. I'm convinced that female pedophiles are just as common but get away with acting out most of the time exactly because they are not stigmatized!

Those are all things we could improve on as a society. Stopping the "anti-slut shaming" movement from promoting promiscuity and teaching children to dress and act modestly again would probably help too. Her proposal of expanding treatment programs doesn't really have a downside though, and it can work in parallel with all of the above.

This is the logical next step when people are told that 'you don't choose who you love' as if humans are brain-dead or diseased idiots that cannot control their thoughts and actions.

Even in the times of the Ancient Greeks, despite their rampant homosexuality and pedophilia, they knew that what they were doing was of their own volition. This is all elucidated very well in Plato's Republic.

Edit: And just to further that point, I will recite Plato's most perfect (imho) saying, "Take charge of your thoughts. You can do what with them what you will!"

[–] Broc_Lia 6 points 9 points (+15|-6) ago 

You don't choose who you love though, you choose whether to act on it. For example, presumably you don't choose to love adult women, it just happens. There is no contradiction between her speech and that Plato quote.

I'm reading all these comments and wondering if I watched the same video they did.

When one honsiders that the Greeks had 7 kinds of love they discussed including several non-sexual loves. It becomes more obvious that the greek homosexuality and pedophilia are distortions of the truth. It is more similar to men's clubs and mentorship than gay pride.

I'm pretty sure it was a problem, although it may have been overstated for propaganda purposes. A lot of ancient societies left records of fucked up sexual practices.

This is TEDx aks the sideshow anyone can go on. We hired a consultant that gave a TEDx talk, because nobody knew what the fuck TEDx was. She was worse than fucking useless, she could have been a Marissa Mayer, but all the people telling her how great she was went straight to her head, and she ventured to the outside where she is rotting on the vine.

Nobody cares who you are once you leave your protective bubble.

2% is way too high, but I suspect it's higher than we think. The structures in our brain that recognise sexual partners of the right age and opposite gender are necessarily complex. It's easier to fuck up a complex thing than a simple thing, so 1% doesn't sound impossible to me.

Only 20-30% of child molestors is a pedophile? That seems a bit low...

That one does sound odd, keep in mind there's a lot of weird feminist ideas about rape that try to attribute it to anything except sexual attraction. So if they analyse a rapist they tend to come to conclusions like "it's the patriarchy" or "it's misplaced anger." I suspect that figure is much much higher.

I think they're including 'molestation' under the general category of 'abuse,' so they're saying of all the people that abuse kids, only 20-30% of those cases are sexually oriented 'molestation.'
