On May 5th 2018, a TEDx event entitled “Future of Societys” was held at the University of Würzburg in Germany and featured a lecture by medical student Mirjam Heine on the subject of “Why our perception of pedophilia has to change”.

Heine began her talk with the story of Jonas, a 19-year-old Munich law student who is sexually attracted to girls aged 6 to 12 years old. She goes on to describe pedophilia as an “unchangeable orientation” (the American Psychiatric Association classifies it as a disorder).

Here’s a description of the event on the TEDx website:

Mirjam Heine

Medical Student

One to two percent of the main male population is considered as pedophiles. This means worldwide more than 57 million people. Therefore, pedophilia is not an irrelevant phenomenon we can ignore. It is unrelated to class status and educational level. The medical student Mirjam Heine explains how an appropriate approach to the unchangeable sexual orientation pedophilia might look like. She is mainly guided by the works of Prof Dr. Dr. Beier, the head of the institute for sexology and sexual medicine at the University Hospital Berlin and the prevention network “Kein Täter Werden” (meaning “don’t offend”). Hence, she also believes that no one is responsible for their sexual orientation, for their feelings, but that everyone is responsible for acting upon this sexual orientation. She also inquires how all of us can gain if we distinguish clearly between our feelings and our actions. Since pedophiles can’t change their sexual desires, they must learn to control them to not act upon them.

This TEDx Talk Attempts to Normalize Pedophilia
Are these ideas truly worth spreading?

The talk contained lots of bizarre attempts at rationalization and mental gymnastics.

“Let me very clear here. Abusing children is wrong without any doubt. But a pedophile who doesn’t abuse children has done nothing wrong.”

What about those who download gigabytes of pictures and videos of children being subjected to horrific abuse? Those who encourage these gigantic networks of media sharing and those who produce them?

Then, she equates “child love” to a sexual orientation and compares it to heterosexuality.

“I want to quickly summarize where we are at the moment. According to current research, pedophilia is an unchangeable sexual orientation, just like for example heterosexuality. No one chooses to be a pedophile. No one can cease being one. The difference between pedophilia and other sexual orientations is that living out this sexual orientation will end in a disaster.”

A big part of Heine’s argumentation is that we, as a society must to stop judging pedophiles because it prevents them from getting help. She then adds that:

“For example, they can’t tell their friends that they can’t go the beach because children will be there as well.”

How messed up is this sentence? If we follow her own logic, heterosexuals can’t go to the beach either because there might people of the opposite sex as well.

Heine then goes on depicting pedophiles as victims that should be “treated with respect”. She concludes that, in order to prevent child abuse, we must accept pedophiles as they are and encourage them to get help.

Needless to say, this presentation caused a great deal of backlash and controversy, which lead to the TED organization to release a statement dissociating itself from the event.

An independently organized TEDx event recently posted, and subsequently removed, a talk from the TEDx YouTube channel that the event organizer titled: “Why our perception of pedophilia has to change.”

In the TEDx talk, a speaker described pedophilia as a condition some people are born with, and suggested that if we recognize it as such, we can do more to prevent those people from acting on their instincts.

TEDx events are organized independently from the main annual TED conference, with some 3,500 events held every year in more than 100 countries. Our nonprofit TED organization does not control TEDx events’ content.

This talk and its removal was recently brought to our attention. After reviewing the talk, we believe it cites research in ways that are open to serious misinterpretation. This led some viewers to interpret the talk as an argument in favor of an illegal and harmful practice.

Furthermore, after contacting the organizer to understand why it had been taken down, we learned that the speaker herself requested it be removed from the internet because she had serious concerns about her own safety in its wake.

Our policy is and always has been to remove speakers’ talks when they request we do so. That is why we support this TEDx organizer’s decision to respect this speaker’s wishes and keep the talk offline.

We will continue to take down any illegal copies of the talk posted on the Internet.

However, it is not the first time a TEDx event sends out this message of “tolerance”. On April 18th 2018, the event TEDxSittardGeleen hosted in the Netherlands (with theme “Misbehaving Beautifully”) featured psychologist and criminologist Madeleiene van der Bruggen who asked society to be “be mature about pedophilia”.

The description of the video (which is still online) states:

0.5 up to 3% of our male population has some pedophilic interest. That means that everybody probably knows a person with pedophilic interests. According to Madeleine van der Bruggen, most people don’t act out on it, because they know that it’s illegal. And although they never act out on it, they will also never ever be able to talk about it to anyone. But sometimes they do. Without justifying this, it seems a logical thing to happen. Madeleine argues that this is a public and mental health issue. A shared responsibility for all of us. Let’s acknowledge this problem exists and stop with hate and throwing rocks at offenders’ houses. That is not going to solve this problem! Let’s be a mature society and agree that only when we are open about this topic, people will find the strength to come forward, so we as a society can help.

Under the guise of “protecting children”, the speaker calls, once again, for the acceptance of pedophiles. Once again, the speaker compares the number of potential pedophiles to a large city and adds that it could be your “neighbor, colleague, or even your husband”. She then explains how difficult it must be for these people to never find the love they long for. And, to make it clear, that “love” they long for is towards children who are not physically and psychologically developed to be in “complete” relationships.

There is an agenda creeping through media and it is about normalizing pedophilia. We are witnessing the first steps. The first lines being are crossed as vocabulary changes from “horrific abomination” to “sexual orientation” and from “sex offender” to “your neighbor”. First, they will claim that we should accept them in order to “help” them. Then they will require “rights”. Who knows where that could lead.

Yes, these people should not act out on their desires and they should actively seek help – no matter how radical it is. However, don’t ask for regular people to accept those who lust over their children. I mean, seriously? To be sexually attracted to the purity and innocence of children reflects a sick and twisted state of mind. It is not “normal”. It is the opposite of normal. It is an abomination and an embodiment of pure evil … and that is why those in power are slowly yet steadily pushing for its “acceptance”.

The ultimate goal for her presentation was to “victimize” the predators, pedophiles. These who push the this agenda are going to take small steps in order to normalize pedophilia. This is just the beginning of a tragedy unfolding in our society.


And they always use a “woman” messenger.


Right, and unfortunately those “tedx whatever talking their shitty talks are transgendered “wo-men” When Will this horribly scripted “story” of how to is gonna stop???

Antoine Martin

The old snake always used a woman.


Like in advertising


Once they started pushing for the normalization of homos**uality, this was inevitably going to happen. If, as they claim, the former is a “fixed orientation” that the person can’t help, then it follows that they must also consider p**ophilia in the same manner. At first, people thought it was crazy; it would never be accepted. Look at it now. Give it some time and p**ophilia will also be “normalized”. Think that’s impossible? Just wait and see.


People like you should be locked up


i guess what he meant flew over your head, he wasnt promoting it, he was just saying there was a pattern before for homosexuality and now they are trying to push it for pedophilia the same way. powerful forces are behind it and of course that doesnt make it right

Lost Cause

First, open relationships, then homosexuality, then transsexuality/transgenderism, and now, this. They’ll never stop.


Then there will be zoofilia, necrophilia and cannibalism…one word – satanism totally normalised and ruling


No it didn’t. What “flew” over my head is how you can compare two consenting adults who are attracted to the same sex, to the evils of taking the power away from a CHILD?! Where on earth lies the similarity? I beg of you to explain.
He or she are trying to show the two are a like because in the past being gay was outlawed and considered a disease by sick religious freaks. To this day, it is clearly the same problem. So yeah. Lock that piece of human up.


You still don’t get it. They are saying it’s not a choice, it’s their makeup. Just like the gays stated the same. In other words, if that’s no longer deviant then neither am I because it’s not a choice.

They never compared it. They stated the progression using the exact same reason, aka excuse.

Rather simple to understand instead of going off about it.


If you don’t understand English, don’t comment. Remember the old saying: It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool rather than to open it and remove doubt forever. (Mark Twain, I believe, said that.)


Don’t link paedophilia with homosexuality. That’s a hideous and ridiculous connection to make. Homosexuality is perfectly normal, with and culminates in sex between consenting adults, paedophilia on the other hand (although naturally occurring) is a condition/disorder


Homosexuality is not normal. Fake scientist love to lie. Now go take some lessons on why most men who engage in such acts get deadly disease. Not to mention that it parallels with the teaching of The Deadly Sins. Abomination for creation, It is not Adam and Steve,,, it is Adam and Eve. Deal with it.


Gay people exists and God Loves Them. Deal with it.


God loves them, but not their sins. Deal with that.


Romans 1:25-27
25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator– who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.
27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.


Who is your God?
Leviticus 20:13. “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”


yes, but that refers to adultery, put all the 20, stop lying liar


What?! HIV can be transmitted to females and by females, you know that, right?
Also, not-natural doesn’t mean = evil


More often a male has passed it to a female. Yes non natural is an inherent evil. Why would a perfect Creator subject the earth to chaos and destruction and disease? Thats the devil in disguise.


God made maggots. God made angler fish. God made hyenas. God made goblin sharks. Go look those up…I’ll wait. God made venomous snakes and malaria. God made hurricanes and tsunamis.

You think He didn’t? Who did?

God made s--t and the entire system of s------g and the hole it comes out of…which is usually on the other end, “Truth”…you’re very unusual, with that hole serving as your mouth, but I suppose God also made you. God made you just like a barnacle.


and you just compared all that to homosexuality… Very telling indeed. so God made a whole for s*** to come out of why are people having sex in it and then saying it’s normal think about it homosexuality is an Abomination and a sin and that’s all there is to it . people strive so hard to make it normal but it never will be that’s just fact. Repent


the man did, because your fathers abandone him, and make all broke the Law, thats why, God is nt to consent your bad path, no way he go to participate, so let you down, thats the point of all of this.


The Deadly Sins are not in the Bible as such, but are a Catholic teaching. And do I need to bring up what the priests like to do? Quit fighting homosexuality. They are queer and they are here. Equating that with pedophilia is apples to oranges.


No one is born that way, so you are wrong and so are the scientist you follow. Transgressions Against Mankind. It isn’t about a Catholic teaching. There are universal laws regarding the flesh and spirit. You sin, your spirit weighs down, or you behave… your spirit dwells in a higher form of tangible and intangible energy. The choice is yours to choose what will ultimately save you from this earthly dimension into another portal. Your desire to sin has consequences in as much as your virtue of following the law of truth does too. Just because scientific method can not visibly test a demon or angel does not necessarily prove they are fake.


What about making your handle “Christ”? A bit blasphemous, don’t you think.


yes, kratos,karthus, kristo, is not EmmanuEl, you are very intelligent, very well. You get the point, what more? Thats why Jesus said if you blasphemy me, or the father, will forget, aha! you are very clever


please, read history, ok, and there is a book the Tora, Enoch, Ezra, Baruc, Nehemias, etc etc… Jesus. All thousand years, so dont talk incongruent things. You all lie


Finally, a voice of reason in the comments section. It is amazing to see how readers of such an amazing blog can be so…wrong.


It’s not normal & never will be.

Double D

Homosexuality is not “perfectly normal”, it’s a genetic malfunction. I get it, they’re born that way, but if everyone was born that way then none of us would be here… that makes it abnormal.


It is not normal. Sorry not sorry

The One

Is b---------y next?

D D d

Just wait until the furry craze has settled in.
Give it a year or two more and you’ll be amazed in how often you will read in mass media about how one can use a synthetic animal-all-over-suit to hide behind.. I bet they will show a lot of pictures with their news as coloured figurines are popular subjects to photo-graph. And I bet there will be use of obscene imagery, too.
And that next generation of ours will find it perfectly normal to live around, too.
( Did I just sound there like I was the ever so popular mother of style-influencers Lidewij Edelkoorts (or something like that)? That’s on purpose. )

VG Fan

The oscar winning movie the shape of water had that premise.


“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness” (Isaiah 5:20). Throughout our society there are many who are trying to force others to accept perversions of God’s creation which God plainly calls sin. It was God’s design to create us male and female (Genesis 1:27).

A man

Your god is a jewish fantasy, the same jewish people, who create all the “sins” in our world. Stop reading 2000 years old book like it’s the ultimate truth. We live in 21 century and everything is changed.the bible is not relevant or the sins of bible’s god.
We all have brains and sense of ethics and morals and we should learn to use it, no to rely on a book or religion.they caused more eveil than all the sins inside them….


A Jewish fantasy? Sounds like you lack theological basis for your argument. There is enough evidence, facts, and proof in archeology and linguistics that lead to a truth. That truth is humans are created by a supreme being that deserves worship. The Breath of Life is the most valuable intangible force we carry and has been bestowed upon this creation, The book is old but new evidence of the Dead Sea Scrolls have been found that have led to similar conclusions about the Life of Christ who denied on a cross for redemption of the sins that humans happen to make out of free will. Sometimes using your brain alone causes disorders….time to look in your heart/ soul for the truth.


Honestly this is the best description and nothing but the truth everything was leading to this and it’s gonna happen someone must act and defend the childern from these beasts


I blame this all on Obama and opening up Pandora’s box by allowing homosexuals to marry.


All’ of those devil apostols are always jewish…both those women in that article r also jews…in their talmud is writtrn that is ok having sex with 3 yrs old girl…they normalised pederastia sodomy exactly this way…opening overton windows…first thry try to Call to our weak emotions such as pity, empathy…telling that those perverts Will not harm anybody if we depenalise their pervertion. Then thry make it normal and even obligatory as thry did for sodomits. Now they f--k up our nerves, lifes and eyes in every lgbtq pride…and they force children become perverted across the sex lessons at schools…one day thry will punish normal people protesting against pedofilia…cause from “lets talk about sodomy ” they arrived to obligatory mass teaching of sodomy life style and Now they punish those who condamn that abomination…


Well, well, look at this genius. Have you EVER even seen a Jewish text that is not the Old Testament? I bet you didn’t. Let Alone read the Talmud? I lol’d hard.
Btw, Islam is also evil? Same logic you use can be applied to Islam. Lots of “pedo” stuff there as well.
Only Jesus is a cool dude, right?
It is all written to brainwash sheep. All religions are false. Deal with it.


Bitter yet sad truth unfortunately, especially when the “powers-that-be” intend to supposedly “normalize” all sorts of deviance even if “rape” is included also. And yet the use of women speakers to “victimize” the occasional offenders being male most of the time is a real kick in the groin.

I guess “TEDDY” is yet to have some if not all “ideas worth reconsidering” in an era where political correctness is at least a problem already with common sense thrown out the window in a society going through brain-drain at the moment.

And by “reconsidering,” I mean thinking twice of course at how heavy the repercussions might turn out.


Germany opened a franchise of brothels where any animals can be ordered for sexual intercourse. Germany originates so much of this pathological garbage, advocating that sickness be considered normal and healthy.
Wonder how pedophile-acceptance of molesting kids changes sex trafficking laws? This woman- how is she an expert? Her delivery is very odd. Why is a WOMAN being used to convey this message? To make it inoffensive and acceptable. Masonry brought in all this garbage via its top Mason, Sigmund Freud, who pawned off Masonic values and beliefs as “psychotherapy” and “analysis”. Anyone see relationship between Pharisee-ism-Moloch worshipping Talmudism and the present trend?? Wake up people. Why did Christ say “Better for a millstone to be tied around his neck, than for one of these to harm even a single hair on the head of such little ones…” ?


Not Germany, individuals in Germany. Big difference.

T. King

I first caught wind of this video a few weeks ago and sadly was not shocked at all. These arguments will indeed be the basis for normalizing pedophilia in the near future. Secret societies who all worship devils which also include many church-state, antichrist organizations have a built in blood lust for children that will indeed be put out into the open and rationalized very soon. They won’t quit until every sick ritual they do in private is accepted by the masses. Hence the new world order. Don’t fall for it! Accept Jesus and the love of our Father, who has the only Word that exposes satan for who he is.


Oh please, God impregnated a 14 year old 2000+ years ago. Step off the soap box.


Was that you satan?


Stop hiding behind anonymity, troll. We see through you.




The same stupid argument can be made about any crime. Was she molested as a child? probably not, she would be advocating the death penalty. Repeat offenders should get life in prison or death in extreme cases!!!!!!!!

Big Al

“Was she molested as a child? probably not, she would be advocating the death penalty.”
Sadly no. Being a victim of pedophilia is the single biggest factor in determening if someone becomes a child molester themself.

Megan Buchanan

I was abused and I dont do it. I wanna strangle everyone that does and slap everyone that thinks its ok or says we need to “help” them. Nobody helped me. I have PTSD from it.


I think it’s not useful, to say that every victim of a pedophile automatically becomes a pedophile. This puts all the victims of pedophiles under suspicion, but we can not be sure of each specific case. In addition, it sounds like an excuse, although it can not be it.


But Big Al did not say all victims of abuse become abusers. Clearly, not all victims of sexual abuse become victimizers. He said abuse was the single greatest predictor in someone becoming a victimizer. I am confident in saying that ALL victimizers were themselves victims of abuse. I disagree strongly that anyone is born this way. Rather is is a social virus that gets transmitted across generations and seems to have been with us from the very beginning.


If the victim of pedo becomes pedo, just becsuse that person already had degenerated genetical background. Normal children after pedo abuse gets depressed for whole life and often ends with suicide, but never become pedo. The others become soldiers fighting against pedos forever…in all cases the mind of child gets damaged , traumatised forever

Jane doh

Fashion industries are also normalizing pedophilia by blurring ages. If you look at style today from children to adults it all looks the same. Now its becoming harder to identify someones age visually. I started noticing this years ago while i would shop at malls or search online shopping catalogs. Childrens clothing styles is becoming the same as adults. There are already infant & toddler skinny jeans/leggings. And brands like Juicy Couture even have infant to child clothing. If you visit online shopping sites like and you search childrens clothing or fashion you will see how most of the clothes is similar to that of adults. Its creepy and disgusting. Parents dont realize that they are helping sexualize their own children. The children even pose creepy like an adult would. I dont shop on anymore because of that. Its getting worse with millenials who are having kids bcuz they treat their kids like a fashion accesory and dress them up in teen-adult fashion. Ugh its creepy!! Kids in elementary school dress like high school kids. My own niece just turned 12 and was wearing makeup, crop tops, short shorts and a f-----g neck chocker necklace!! Wtf right?? My… Read more »


LOL, thats what broads my age will do, their child will be an OBJECT which they can mold into a little mini me, and if they have a son, the poor boy will be a h--o or a drug user by his teens, it’s all single mothers any more, nothing else.

D D d

”LOL” and then such a statement as yours?
Talking about desensitizing.. you passed with flags and ribbons.

D D d

What ever happened to all those children on that show, Toddlers And Tiaras?

Lost Coin

I really appreciate your comments and your accurate observations. I’ve been noticing these trends and it has been really bothering me…you put into words some things that I have been uncomfortable with.

This trend of dressing children in “adultish” clothes has become so prevalent! I was watching a show called The Profit, and he was working with some children’s clothing designers. Almost all the clothing had very adult-like themes on the shirts, pants, etc. One shirt for toddlers even featured a cartoon open lips with with the tongue – kind of like the Rolling Stones logo. I was shocked! I was like what does that have to do with a child?? Oh, and also the one-eye logo….now that’s cool to dress your kid in!

I’m going to show your comments to a couple of the young mothers I know who are dressing their children this way. It is very disturbing!




One thing I did manage to notice on this forum is that there is a lot of homophobia in the comments, only packed and covered up in glitter, every single person commenting didn’t miss a single chance to subtly slide LGBT as an extremely bad thing. LGBT community is less than 10% of the entire population worldwide, what are you so afraid of? Why are they causing panic in you so much? Is it just because they refuse to fit into your “norms” of how people should, dress, behave or have sex according to yourself, “rest of the world and GAWD ALMIGHTY” ? I need an explanation, a reasonable one, not simply God forbade it, not you or I have a proof he exists and we never will until they day we die, so I need a rational answer, if you happen to have one in the first place?


Because mr. Lol, homos are perverts plain and simple. They want everyone to accept them and if you disagree with their ways and ideals then you’re a homophobe, bigot, or evil. Just bc people don’t agree with their sick ways. Many are sexually promiscuous constantly going from one partner to the next (gay men especially are serial cheaters) spreading their diseases, having unnatural sex (and yup I’m aware straights can also be this but that’s a whole other conversation). And you’d be surprised how many gay people today have had some sort of childhood trauma with being molested by some sicko that spirals them into confusion for their whole life. Today they even go as far as being “transgender” and mutilating their genitals or removing perfectly healthy body parts just to feel like they are the opposite sex. If you can’t see where there’s an issue with that then you are 100% brainwashed. And even if you don’t believe in a creator it’s still wrong, and these lost souls are in spiritual bondage. It’s especially wrong teaching these screwed up ideals to the youth, normalizing it like it’s something good when it’s straight evil. I say F*** all that and… Read more »

”..(and yup I’m aware straights can also be this but that’s a whole other conversation)..”
No it is not, in this context , you dividing sexpolice-fool.


The rational answer is very simple…

Gender is fixed at birth. Sexual orientation is also fixed, however that changes perhaps due to trauma, and or experience that causes a change in orientation. THEY ARE NOT BORN THAT WAY.


It is odd how hard some fight for the rights of pervs while wanting to take away your free-speech to show displeasure. 300 Priests in the news today as well where the Catholic Church covered up things for years


I immediately made that connection also. Thanks for stating it. I also recall some years ago a priest who was the originator of NAMBLA, Paul Shanley who really instituted the push for acceptance. He was imprisoned and was executed in prison by another inmate. This has been in the works now for a very long time.

VG Fan

Yes you are correct paul shanley did help originate nambla but he didn’t die in prison, he was released last year and moved in front of a dance studio as per the boston globe. The child predator priest who was killed by an inmate was john geoghan. The cases overlapped in coverage and were covered up by cardinal law who was rewarded by a post in the vatican by pope john paul 2.

Sadie Slays

They want to take away our guns, too. They want us silent, broke, and defenseless when they come for our children.


By far, one of the most rational responses. Divide and conquer, has worked since the Roman Empire, of which many of their practises are still in use today.

VG Fan

This is a reality in the UK. No guns, no rights, even your comments in social media against the perpetrators of coordinated abuses against children are punished. 3rd comment my other 2 went to moderation and didn’t appear 🙁


This is ridiculous, Europe and the rest of the world do not buy guns that easily as in the USA, and pedophillia in europe is on a lot less level than the USA. I wouldn’t say the problem is in taking away the guns from people who want to use it on every occasion, the problem is in Americans as a nation


What are you talking about? Some countries in Europe have age of consent as low as 14 and prostitution is legal. Harvard has done a study which shows trafficking has increased there also.

VG Fan

Ask Tommy Robinson how he faired.


There is a huge difference between considering perversion a normal sexual orientation aka a natural feeling. Or on the other hand regarding it as a sickness aka an anomaly or a psychological disease that requires treatment. We can tolerate people , but not sin. That is the line that the Luceferian satanists are trying to blur. Christ was kind towards sinners but not towards sin. Morality is being altered. What’s legal is not necessarily moral. I say that because I see some of the commentators somehow confused about our stance towards the whole issue. Of course I feel for those under the spell and curse of sexual perversion. It’s a temptation. But it’s a disease. A sin they should fight and reject. It’s not normal. It’s not natural. We will never be ok with it. So where does it end ? What about the urge of having sex with animals ? Or with robots ? Believe me it’s coming. The thing is , us Christians will be labeled as big bigots and intolerant while “the one world new religion” (approved by the Vatican) will be all about fake tolerance and normalizing abominations and sins.


If we dont stop satanists, soon thry will declare us cristians as sick minded needing hospital recovery, prison or even being executed


In one sense I feel like these Ted talks/conversations are necessary to have so that we as a collective society can then bounce back and say – No! We disagree with what you just said and here are the reasons as to why.

I’m all for a progressive and modern world, but there are some things that CANNOT be normalised. Pedophilia being one of them.

I’d much rather these controversial topics be out in the open so we can all express outrage and get them taken down and removed, rather then the mentality of keeping everything behind closed doors. Better yet, we can take to the streets and revolt.


I get the feeling they’re just testing the waters. A social experiment by the elite to see where society stands and what measures need to be taken before it can be normalized and legalized. At this point, they figure it’s not well accepted so they’ll push through it by brainwashing us media coverage of sexual abuse (which just so happens that an article was published talking about the Catholic Church and the abuse of hundreds of children) and making music videos, movies about the subject. They’ll also use their puppets to promote and push this further. (Hence why you see all these other directors etc making tweets about child abuse). It’s all a test.


No, the Ted Talks are given to break us in to an idea or introduce change in trends. If not? Why dont they have a counter Ted Reply to give the other side? It is subtle attitude change they are doing. Look up “6 steps in attitudinal change” process. THAT is what Ted is doing under guise of “reasonable discourse”.


im a little light headed from reading this, but will put my pennies worth in. this vile pathetic excuse for a human, who seeks to enlighten others as to the plight paedophiles face, i wish to educate her. should she read this for whatever reason, please meet with me face to face. so i made show you physical scars i have on my body, from being raped/sodomized between the ages of 6 to 11. the mental effects it had, and still continues to have on me well into my adulthood. I’m one of the strongest people i know, and you would never know from looking/talking to me, what my journey to hell has been like. to hell with you, and your like minded preachers. im off to have a cup of tea and hug my cat.


This TEDx speaker does not advocate for legalized paedophilia, she wishes to encourage compassion so the ones affected by it will be less afraid to seek out for help.


Bullshit. Her false distinction between pedophile acting-out and sex abuse betrays her true motive and method. Manipulation of the most devious, demented kind. Shame on her with her sing-song, hypnotic monotone. She should be lashed vigourously with a whip and then sent to an “S & M orientation seminar” for those whose sexual orientation is “legitimately” about cruelty; because it “cant be changed so it should be accomodated.”

Katara Cole

I can’t even. I want to scream. I tell you guys in the near future pedophilia will be accepted. There will be laws protecting these creeps, it’s not going to take long anymore. For me it’s even more upsetting that a German is talking about this. We live in scary times.

Just me

I’ve read quite a few cases of p******a in the media recently, I think they are trying to expose us more to this till we become numb.Since you mentioned Germany, there was a case where a boy was repeatedly abused by his stepfather and mom,also other persons. The social workers took him from them and then send him back saying they never would’ve believed a mother will do such things. It was a shocking case even for investigators


If there is no one to honestly save; protect, and raise children to be healthy, functional human beings, we are damned. Political Correctness is helping to destroy free speech. When Free Speech and the Press are 100% controlled(and we are heading in that direction first) the sacrifice of the minds and bodies of our legacy; our children will be complete. This is a war. A war against the Family, the Individual, the Soul, and the Mind of the Human Race. We must protect our children. We have no choice. The alternative is the utter ruination of the human race. The monstrosity, which is fundamentally satanic and demonic is predation. Not love. The evil elites are redefining love, family, reproduction as we speak. Read 1984, and Brave New World. How dare people, the golem of globalisation that Ted trash represents, force this horror on us!


no it will not.

Here in my country 99,9999% of the population completely hate pedos and say they wish that rapist pedos were subjected to death penalty or life imprisonment or even other things like torture. So at least here, people are very far from being numb to pedo****** crimes (either r**e or other pedo crimes, such as making pedo movies). Maybe people will become numb to this crime one day, but I guess that it will take a long time for this to happen. But I don’t doubt this possibility.

Just me

You’re right, it will take a long time for this to happen, but honestly lately I read at least one news involving a child being abused per day. I don’t know if it’s because of the social media making news more accessible or these cases are increasing

Sincere woman

* 99.999999% (a dot, not a comma) hehe

Sincere woman

I don’t know either. I’m not sure.


It hasn’t happened for thousands of years of human existence so I doubt it ever will. There are factual reasons why pedophilia is wrong, it will never be right… so the laws should reflect that and they currently do, that’s why it is illegal. Pedophilia is a clearly harmful practice… rape will never be seen as okay especially of children. It doesn’t make sense to say that what is now illegal for perfectly valid reasons that everyone supports will be made completely legal on behalf of the criminals themselves. Anyone who is not a pedo is against legalizing pedophilia… and the small group of pedophiles who want it to be legal are not going to be able to get their way because we will stand in their way.

Just me

I hope you’re right. But knowing that especially those in power are especially in favour of this, I’ll keep an open eye


Then you’re a blind gullible a-s! Look at other countries and religions that already Have accepted it MECCA!


It won’t be rape though, because they will be grooming and molding children to accept it as normal. Much like many victims now who don’t even know that they are …they’ve been groomed.


The age of consent will slowly lower most likely and then possibly disappear. Right now, pedos barely get a tap on the wrist for heinous stuff. There is little deterrent for someone to act out. So it may never be technical you legal, but will it matter?


Bullets solve many problems. Keep that in mind when the time comes.

I totally disagree that pedophilia is a “sexual orientation”. Saying this is really bizarre. Pedophilia is a disorder or a mental disease. But I agree with what she said regarding the fact that those affected by this mental disease should seek for help and not be afraid to talk about the subject. She never said that we should accept acts of pedophilia. She just said that instead of being rude with pedophiles (the ones who HAVEN’T COMMITTED ANY PEDOPHILIA CRIME), we should try to help them, for example, listening to them and giving them advises, or indicating a psychologist to help them. That’s what I understood. I don’t know if I am too naive to have understood it like this…

Sincere woman

Anyone who disagrees with me may reply. Sorry for my imperfect English.

Just me

I get what you are saying, as a rational human being, but as a parent I’m not so cool about it. It begs the question, what kind of help they will need and how realistic are the chances they get ‘cured’? A p**o who hasn’t committed an abuse yet doesn’t make me feel any better, it’s like a ticking bomb to me.

Sincere woman

“what kind of help they will need and how realistic are the chances they get ‘cured’?”

Well. Not all p**os are psychopaths, right? I’ve read that it is very hard to convince and prevent a psychopath from doing evil things, since they don’t have empathy for the others. But many p**os are not psychos. They just have this mental disease. So maybe if they seek a good psychologist, they could get treated and receive advise in order to control their sexual impulses. I’m not sure if it would always work, but at least they could give it a try. I already thought of this before: if all or most of the potential pe**s sought help with psychologists, maybe doing this would prevent many of them from committing crimes of pedo*****. Right?

“A p**o who hasn’t committed an abuse yet doesn’t make me feel any better, it’s like a ticking bomb to me.”

But maybe if he learned how to control his sexual impulses towards children, that would be a great advance, wouldn’t it? If he never performs any act of pedo*****, it is a great thing.

Sincere woman

I just read that there are medicines that diminish people’s libido, so that could be helpful, maybe.


And where is the evidence that not all pedos are psychopaths? I would argue that all pedos rank very high on the psychopathy scale, since even to entertain these thoughts requires a severely diminished level of empathy.

Sincere woman

I forgot to add. If I had children/a child, of course I would NEVER leave my child/children alone with a pedo or potential pedo, or even with a person that I didn’t completely trust. And I would never forgive any rape or act of pedo****** practiced against my child or against any other child. And I am in favor of harsh penalties against people who practiced acts of pedo*****, like death penalty or life imprisonment. I am just highlighting the possibility that a potential pedo who never committed any crime before gets psychologically treated in order to prevent him from committing a crime. Did you people get it?


“what kind of help they will need and how realistic are the chances they get ‘cured’? A p**o who hasn’t committed an abuse yet doesn’t make me feel any better, it’s like a ticking bomb to me’”

Even if they can’t be fully cured you can’t skip over the step of addressing the problem. If someone feels attraction towards children, you pretty much have to send them to a psychologist because they could go on to hurt children. A pedophile coming forward to ask for help is already beneficial to parents because they can know to keep their children away from this person as a precaution. A psychologist and therapist could try to help them get to the root of the problem… because pedophilia is a harmful mental illness and not a sexual orientation. Maybe that person has past abuse to work through. But you can’t automatically send them to prison because they haven’t committed a crime… the best thing would be to prevent them from committing crimes in the best ways we can.


Is any hetero man (I guess you are a woman) like a ticking bomb to you?
What’s your solution? Kill them?


“Is any hetero man (I guess you are a woman) like a ticking bomb to you”.
Actually, yes. Since men have blurred concepts of rape, each of them (heterosexual and homosexual) is a ‘ticking bomb’. Yes, it’s not about killing, but I usually try not to go alone to an apartment of man with whom I do not want sex. Women are also ‘ticking bombs’, but they are physically weaker, so men suffer less from violence, but more from intrigues, blackmail and slander.
So it’s not about killing pedophiles, but about the fact that each of them should be kept away from children. Which are always physically weaker than him, by the way.
If your friend told you that he prefers to engage in rape instead of usual sex, but has not yet committed rape, would you consider him socially safe?

D D d

”’Since men have blurred concepts of rape, each of them (heterosexual and homosexual) is a ‘ticking bomb .” – etc etc
You are yourself a dangerously inaccurate human. Generalizing in these matters is wrong. And I am telling you, you are wrong, dangerously, massmongeringly wrong.
You dividing b---h.


“Since men have blurred concepts of rape, each of them (heterosexual and homosexual) is a ‘ticking bomb’ ”

Men are people… they can understand boundaries and they are capable of controlling their own actions. you can’t say all men are rapist or prone to be rapists, that is false. Most men are not rapists.


I totally agree. She was promoting a strange double standard. Imagine if the speaker said homosexuality is a mental disorder that can be cured. Why is pedophilia a treatable sexual preference/disorder but not homosexuality.


This is exactly the point. They are loaded guns pointed directly at our children. And if they choose to act on their impulses they will not do so in broad daylight where they can be easily identified and restrained, but by subtle manipulation and covert activities such that you may never know the abuse has happened or who perpetrated it. None of us can ever know which one of these loaded guns will decide to pop off one day and commit crimes (often repeatedly, with multiple victims). Also remember that most victimizers are people directly within the victim’s family. This is precisely why there is so much resistance to any kind of normalization.


You are a silly women not sincere! I am not being kind to a person who wants to sleep with little children. Believe me….they aren’t kind to a small child’s genitals that they crave. I should know. I was hurt over and over by these sin full monster’s. You have a good day!


Yes, just be rational and it will be fine. If someone is a pedophile but they did not commit any crimes, you should not treat them as if they did but you also shouldn’t act like there is nothing wrong. You should direct them to the proper psychological help for their mental illness in order to prevent them from committing a crime and make sure they are not endangering any children.

Sincere woman

“If someone is a pedophile but they did not commit any crimes, you should not treat them as if they did but you also shouldn’t act like there is nothing wrong.”

For sure. The question here is: the fact that most people would be aggressive with a guy that admitted having pedo desires makes them getting afraid of confessing their mental disease and thus seeking help with a psychologist. If a guy told me he had pedo desires but had not committed any crime, instead of being aggressive with him, I would try to help him either by giving him advises or indicating a psychologist to treat him. Of course I would end up telling people around me to watch out and keep children far from him, because of his pedo tendencies. So I guess the best thing he could do would be really seeking a psychologist to help him.

“You should direct them to the proper psychological help for their mental illness in order to prevent them from committing a crime.”



I would beat his a-s senseless


Pedophiles dont go to a mental institution when caught. They go to Prison. So how can you say it is a mental condition???


Like psychopathy, which is also a mental disease. But both of those mental diseased people go to prison when they commit any crime, since they are AWARE of their actions and the results of the actions. Only few diseased people, like schizophrenics, are considered diseased in a way that they will go to a mental institution instead of a prison. Not psychos and not pedos.


I think thats what makes this so insidious, she’s using the truth to spin a monstrous lie.


This is exactly what i understood from this article, shes all for prevention by non victimising which is better then them going to offend – makes good sense, much respect for her trying to do something positive from a lower ground. All others looking for easy credit & praise from simple minded people will take the cheap higher ground. The simple minded can’t see the that this could prevent many future victims of this, i have no respect for pedoes but after this Tedx talk i would be willing to put my lynch fork aside to save lives


Pedophilia is not a mental disease that can be cured like depression. THis is where we go wrong. Pedophilia is about the victims not the perpetrators. If we start to look at them and give excuses for their behavior then we are falling into a trap of being complacent and allowing them to be forgiven when they say they are cured. You cannot cure EVIL! These people are evil and nothing more. Lets not put a soft touch to it. If someone is a serial killer we call them evil. Pedophilia destroys lives much like murder does.


Totally right , serial killing is a mental disorder too, however it doesn’t usually save the guilty from execution.

Simone Cordeiro

Wait a minute!!! PEDOPHILES are those who commit PEDOPHILIA right?, so how can you say that “pedophiles (the ones who HAVEN’T COMMITTED ANY PEDOPHILIA CRIME),”???? I want to rip out my eyes out of my face ’cause I can’t get what you mean sis!!!!


But nothing is stopping a pedophile from seeking help right now. They can seek help WITHOUT talking to their peers. They can find a psychiatrist or psychologist who can help them confidentially. Just like AA has confidential meetings and sponsors and the like, pedos could do the same thing. If they aren’t seeking help already, it is because they don’t WANT to change. Making it okay for them to talk about how they are attracted to kids is NOT going to help them. It is simply one more step in making pedophilia accepted by society. Just look at the gay rights movement. It was unfathomable a few decades ago that people could be openly gay and now we have TV shows where they depict a--l sex between men. And while I’m okay with allowing consenting adults to do as they please (even though I might think it is morally wrong), pedophilia is completely different. Imagine if we said that we shouldn’t shun serial killers but rather we should view them as people who have an uncontrollable impulse to murder people. And we were encouraged to let people talk about how they have this desire to kill people in the hopes… Read more »


Pedophilia, like homosexuality is arrested development or trauma. Also chemicals in environment. NOT natural


An adult with such urges and desires is inherently evil. Desires like this come from evil. This is the Spirit of Lies. May The flaming spirit of TRUTH cast out these evil lies.


The beach analogy was ridiculous. If you can’t go somewhere in public bc you are worried about raping someone, that is not normal and should NEVER be tolerated. You are not a victim, you are a monster.

Russian Guy

This was to be expected after homosexuality had been fully normalized in the Western societies. Deranged perverts will not stop until their every depraved proclivity is labelled as “just a preference” and a “turn of events that just cannot be changed”.


Calling homosexuality ‘a preference’ today is looked upon as homophobic. They’ll push and push and push until the medical fraternity, puts homosexuality down as perfectly normal and something people are born with.


Engaging in a sexual act of any kind is a choice! A person can’t remember being born, so how would they draw the conclusion they were born gay? Satan continues to blind the minds of those that want to be blinded. There are rules, and regulations, Law and principles in this life, all provided by the One who created all things. When these law, principles, rules and regulations are not favorable to those who enjoy sexual immorality ,and things that goes against what God loves(pretty much the a very large portion of the world) , then those who knows better and strive to live better are ostracized. However we know the thinking of the world is what’s bad is good and what’s good is bad, because they choose to follow the father of the lie(Satan). We continue to pray for all, and strive to do God’s will.


Matthew 19:12


Someone down voted a teaching from Jesus. Nice. How about the time Jesus healed a Roman soldier’s gay lover, no questions asked. Or when Peter baptized an Ethopian eunuch. Let’s down vote these parts of the Bible too and keep blaming LGBT for pedophiles who usually present themselves as men of God.


You are so clueless and inaccurate it was Phillip not Peter that baptized the eunich, and what does him being a eunich have to do with this topic? Please state scripture where supposedly Jesus healed the lover of a Roman…..waiting, and will be waiting forever, there is no such scripture in the Bible!


Matthew 8:5-13 and Luke 7:1-10
I agree, the LGBT community should not be pulled into this conversation. I just see gays repeatedly being blamed for pedophiles wanting to be a respected part of society. In your post above it appears to say LGBT people “go against God’s love”. Maybe I made assumption about the morality rant I am responding to. Maybe we agree, God loves gay people.


It’s the culture of victimization. Every non traditional group is awarded victim status and therefore believe they are entitled to special treatment in society and under the law, and they won’t stop until they have forced the traditional culture to not only tolerate but fully embrace their habits/sub-culture. (And if not willingly embraced they will be compelled to do so by legal force or else socially humiliated/contained.)

Thus the whole sexuality/gender agenda is a power play, not a genuine moral argument. Morality is anyway practiced at the individual level, not at the state level.


What is next? B--------y is “normal?” What she fails to address is the damage pedo’s do to kids.
We are one step away from the argument that “a child naturally is in tune with their sexual feelings.”

When that happens I hope God will step down and destroy us.

VG Fan

they started already by saying a child can feel their GENDER now called sexual identity is off therefore they can feel they belong to the other sex. this will speed the process of allowing children to give consent for intimate relations.

D D d

To be more precise I guess the goal is that a limit on the age of consent will be deleted, not adjusted. Or one must find toddlers blabbing about being something sexual, a political correct new level? I do not.


Canada legalized b--------y last year. Go figure…

The Lamb has 7 eyes & 7 horns- WHY?

What is god waiting for?


Already argued in Germany. They already passed a law making incest legal.


What will come next is creeping state intervention in parenting choices and greater “sexual rights” afforded to youth that can only be properly translated by self-styled “experts” in child sexuality. It’s coming. Wait for it.


Satan, and his demons are quite busy!

This has probably already been mentioned, but I don’t think it was a coincidence that an underage looking woman gave this Ted talk. Her cadence makes me think she knows a thing or two about neurolinguostic programming and is nauseating to listen to coupled with her perverted thoughts.

K Lina

Yeah, I noticed that too. She looks about 14 years old! Coincidence?


Sick and evil, unbelievable just disgusted. 0 rationale!!


I wonder what happens to said ‘love’ when the child grows up and no longer looks like one

Nice One

Damn good question! Love is not just a feeling; it is what you do to benefit another person.

That is just wrong!

As someone who was raped at 8 yo, I beg to disagree with anyone that wants to say that in any way, shape or form is “normal” for an adult to lust over a child, that is absolutely sick and disgusting, but I could tell u 100% sure that the next step after this is trying to normalize it in the minds of survivors, so that few years from now, even those who were abused won’t see anything wrong with it, just the sexual option of an adult that was carried out on them, nothing to it, bc they are not even going to get treat anymore, like old school p***o’s used to do, and they are free to do the same if they so wish. Mark my words. This is some scary s**t!!!


Thank you!

I am saving all these intelligent comments for future reference.


Pandora’s box was opened the minute they legalized homosexuality. The original findings that homosexuality was a mental disorder were never refuted. All that simply happened was tptb contacted the psychiatric authorities of the institutions responsible for the original findings on homosexuality and gave them an ultimatum – renege on their thesis or lose all funding and become blacklisted from the medical field. Once you allow one taboo into society, there’s nothing you can do to stop all the others from being accepted as normality. Sir Bertrand Russell, a member of the British elites and one of the original members of the Frankfurt School of Cultural Marxists, went to China, before WW2 and taught communism in the universities, being a herald of the revolution. More so, he gave a series of lectures compiled into a book in 1953 called “The Impact of Science on Society” – it was essentially about the programming of society. In it he states: “It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment. This subject will make great strides when it is taken… Read more »

”’Pandora’s box was opened the minute they legalized homosexuality”’
Funny how you make use of a myth, when opening pointing out your truths.
When you go back in time a little before yours, you will find another society and its rules and norms. And another one.. It all started already when heterosexuality was the norm, remember? Please, remember. Or look it up.


Exactly – very well said Harbinger – that Frankfurt school produced some horrifying philosophies

hypocrisy rules this planet

How unfortunate that the gay and lesbian community has to live down the behaviors of child abusers in the minds of gay and lesbian haters. I personally know and have my entire life- a great many gay and lesbian people. Not a single one of them has sexually abused a child. On the other hand I have known a number of heterosexual rapists (such as the 5 teen boys who raped my sister when she was 12), just as I am aware of quite a few women who were raped by men including myself. So while so many here are busy hating gay people and blaming gay people in this way- based in their ‘Christian values’ the actual problem and it’s true causes are not being addressed. It’s no wonder to me- where there are communities of fundamentalist religious people- you will in fact find an abundance of child sexual abuse. Perhaps this is why religious people tend to hate gays? To divert attention and blame away from the truth. The “I was raped and or sexually abused” at church or by a minister or priest arm of the metoo ‘movement’ is quite revealing. The oppression suppression and shaming of… Read more »
