A "distinguished" state university here in the United States will publish a book which seeks to legitimize certain forms of "intergenerational sex", also known to you and I by the more common term "pedophilia."

From the Wall Street Journal's OpinionJournal column "The Best of the Web" by James Taranto:

The University of Minnesota Press plans to publish a book called "Harmful to Minors: The Perils of Protecting Children From Sex," which opposes what author Judith Levine calls "the ideology that it's always harmful for kids to have sexual relationships with adults." Reports the Newhouse News Service:

But arguments have emerged in academic journals, books and online that at least some such sex should be acceptable, especially when children consent to it. . . . These academics seek to change the language, moving away from "pedophilia," which often evokes a charged negative response, particularly in light of the priest-pedophile cases challenging the Roman Catholic Church. In its place would be more neutral terms such as "intergenerational sex" or "adult-child sex."

With more research, some scholars say, it may be only a matter of time before modern society accepts adult-child sex, just as it has learned to accept premarital sex and homosexual sex.

We suspect they're wrong. Some ideas are so stupid, only an intellectual could believe them.

The forward to the book was written by none other than Joycelyn Elders, former President Clinton's Surgeon General, who was forced to resign her post after calling on public school educators to teach masterbation techniques to your children.

Yet another example of the misuse of your tax money.
