Milo Yiannopoulos and the pedophiles we love
In the flurry of fury surrounding Milo Yiannopoulos’s promotion of sex between adults and minors, it was easy to overlook what actually happened. More than a pregnant giraffe or the latest cute kitten video, a hyper partisan America united around a shared hatred of pedophiles.
Hatred of pedophiles seems like a good thing to unite around. Sexual abuse of children is an affront to both Conservative and Liberal values, but beyond that, it is something that no one wants to see happen to their children, their grandchildren, to any child they care about.
If we hate people who defend pedophila publically, it implies we have no tolerance for child sexual abuse. So one would assume that cases of child sexual abuse are prosecuted consistently and harshly.
News outlets would have no hesitation covering the stories about cases, and tips about protecting children from sexual abuse would be as widely distributed as tips about protecting children from the flu.
1 in 5 New York Kids Are Sexually Abused. Help Prevent That
The CDC reports that 1 in 5 children are sexually abused.
9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
Sign this petition and change that. Protect NY Kids.
