One one pseudo-anarchist site i came across hidden support for child abuse. And the worst thing is that this is dominant in the anarchist movement as much as i can see.
Therefore this episode tries to challenge this. It is recorded in hope that something will change in the way we (the anarchists) think, but maybe i am just naive.

I think few years ago you made the statement to recapture the word "pedophile" to separate it from the connotation of "child abusers". Glad to see you are still sticking to that attitude, I support you fully on that one. If you take a look at the kindergartens today, children have to learn how to read, write and give critical opinion. That is a FACT that is scientifically proven. So that means we are giving them tools for dealing with real life situations at early age. Making them our equals, so why are not laws adjusted as well to accompany this. Why are we giving them tools and not the right to use them? On a second note I think you should be more specific in which exact right is most bothering you so there could be a discussion, since probably you have an idea because you posted this podcast. Otherwise we can only agree that, yes children need more rights.
My sexuality developed in a different manner than yours. Perhaps i can explore the full topic in some other podcast. However, there's one thing that i agree with you on. I also believe that sexual repression of myself is a form of "child sexual abuse", that is actually real.
Agreed! I liked your point about "abnormal sexuality": as if such a thing as "normal sexuality" exists, and more importantly, in any case, as if there was something wrong with being "abnormal" -- when the term is used as slander. This is groupthink, and no doubt has countless parallels to other thoughts people adopt about the state, superstition, et cetera, without understanding the source of their position, much less actually investigating it for themselves. I think much of the child-love controversy lies in just such a parallel -- the axiomatic sex-as-harmful/bad belief. (Although things are a bit complicated, since the axiom contradicts itself magically at an arbitrary age X -- when it suddenly becomes the exact opposite -- a great thing. Sigh.) Speaking personally, I was quite aware of my sexuality at a young age, I can remember at least as early as Grade 1, and am convinced that the sexual repression that I was exposed to can very credibly be constituted as abusive. I was denied freedom and happiness. Where do file a complaint for reparation and justice?
