Here is an article that warns how accepting LGBT logic can lead to accepting polygamy, incest and even pedophilia. Of course, this is just a slippery slope argument and I was once told that slippery slope arguments are automatically invalid. If you let your kids play with matches, it could start a fire, which could cause property damage, and then someone getting hurt, and even someone dying, but this is just more nutty logic from a slippery slope.
Recently, I told a friend that the reasoning that tries to justify homosexuality can be used to justify pedophilia. I quickly had my hand slapped, so-to-speak, as the friend I was speaking with strongly objected saying, “How dare you compare consenting homosexuals to pedophiles!”
My response was that I was not comparing levels of consent, but comparing some basic premises about how to determine what is “normal” in terms of human sexuality. If people are “born that way” and/or “God made them that way” and they can’t help their sexual orientation, doesn’t that make it natural or normal…at least for them? If it is normal, then saying it is wrong or disordered would be an obvious contradiction. They key is the normalizing part of the logic.
So if an adult or older adolescent experiences sexual attraction to prepubescent children he or she can also say “I was born this way” or “God made me this way” and I can’t help it. Therefore, how can we say it is wrong or disordered? The base premises make it normal; and what evidence can we show to prove otherwise?
Unfortunately, I do think it is entirely possible that the logic used to defend gay rights and gay lifestyles can be stretched to include “access” to children as part of sexual “rights”.
May favorite part of the above linked article is the contradiction about biology. “…the public may be prepared to accept the concept that pedophiles (like gays) simply act as their biology determines them to act. You see, biology is unalterable (LGB), except, of course, when it is alterable (T).”
