What sexual 'freedom' has wroughthow rebellion against inhibition has raped the culture
By Dr. Judith ReismanMay 14, 2009Aren't we lucky to live in an era of sexual freedom?
Lucky to disown our founder's beliefs that God watches and judges us?
Lucky the sexual revolution taught Americans to "let it all hang out"?
Lucky the sexual revolution taught Americans that sex was an appetite – like eating? Lucky to have one-night-stands, wherever and whenever, that ended frustration and created an erotic paradise and world peace?
Lucky to learn that Victorian, Puritan sexual inhibition caused sexual violence?
After 50 years of ridiculing sexual inhibition we can now look around and see just who has benefited from our widespread sexual freedoms.
Children? Women? Teens? The nation? The world?
I see the beneficiaries of sexual freedom as an ever-growing, powerful body of revolutionaries: pedophiles and pederasts, exhibitionists and voyeurs, rapists and bi/trans/homosexual sadists, adulterers, pimps, prostitutes, and sundry other exploited and exploitive women and men, people who are commonly addicted to legal and/or illegal drugs, including their pornographies of choice, erototoxins that mask their painful awareness of their impotence, emptiness and trauma.
DVD shows how "the father of the sexual revolution" has endangered our children and our culture – "The Kinsey Syndrome"
In 2006, quoting officially lower rape rates, several emancipated sexually challenged lawyers claimed increased sexual freedom and pornography use had reduced rape.
Of course, freeing sexual lust meant that sex crimes were by then pandemic. I found police were "reducing rape with an eraser."[BELOW] Moreover, once the sexual revolution hit, rapes of children under age 12 were inexplicably excised from FBI rape reports.
Now Human Rights Watch confirms the "Rape Eraser Phenomenon," reporting that "12,669 untested rape kits" lay rotting in Los Angeles County storage (as in other states and university campuses).
In 2007, the city of Los Angeles recorded 1,474 rapes, (averaging over four a day). A paltry 25 percent of rapes led to arrests, and children still were uncounted in the rape data.
In 1948, roughly half of U.S. states in our sexually inhibited society permitted the death penalty or life for rape. The rest were slightly more lenient. However, after the Kinseyan sexual revolution even child rape victim testimonies were largely ignored by the court, and predators began walking free.
For rapists were defending their crimes as "consensual." Even if not, judges and juries were increasingly told rape was "just overenthusiastic sex" after all.
In the late 1970s, decades after the sexual revolution, the herculean labors of a few victim advocates produced a sexual assault evidence kit, SAEK. These new "rape kits" included biological evidence, DNA, carefully collected from the bodies of rape or sexual abuse victims after a traumatizing assault.
By 1982, thanks to President Reagan's "Victims of Crime Act," the criminal justice system began to recognize that victims, as well as offenders, had rights. Rape kit evidence became crucial tools to justify arrests and convictions.
Although DNA evidence now can confirm the crime, since predators receive light or no jail time, rape reporting was and still is limited. Indeed, "hate crime" legislation may dub some current crimes protected "paraphilias." Much depends on the secret morals of law enforcement and our judiciary. Consider:
In 1992 a chief justice of New York's highest court – aspiring to the U.S. Supreme Court – was caught stalking his lover and mailing her teen daughter pornography. In 2002, an Orange County Superior Court judge was arrested for seducing boys, and for child pornography. In 2008 a judge of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and in 2009 a Delaware Supreme Court chief justice were each caught sending pornography to chums – and in 2007 a federal prosecutor was caught seeking sex with a 5-year-old.
Do Americans expect justice from such men or from the system they represent?
While these selected May 6 and 7 arrests below from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children name no judges, prosecutors, presidents or legislators, the following criminal sample represents a growing sexually predatory population that shapes our world. News flash: sex addicts commonly use all of their power to defame and crush any who may thwart or expose their sexual lusts.
A Bridgeport man, out two months for kidnap-rape, just tried raping a 16-year-old girl. The judge cavalierly gave the predatory rapist 18 months jail and electronic watch.
A NASA scientist is arrested for child pornography on a government computer.
A Texas Boys and Girls Club director is arrested for sexual performance by a child and possessing child pornography.
A Salt Lake City, Utah, Fire Agency captain is arrested for child pornography.
A South Bend, Ind., High School coach admits sexual assault of her female student.
A San Diego elementary school teacher is arrested for sex with her student.
A Texas A&M education administrator is arrested for indecent act on a boy.
A Clifton, N.J., math teacher is arrested for sexually assaulting his female student.
A Tampa, Fla., firefighter/paramedic has marijuana and child pornography at home.
A Liberty, Mo., minister is arrested for enticing a child, attempted statutory rape.
A Racine, Wis., police department veteran is arrested for child sex abuse, incest, etc.
A Tulsa, Okla., high school teacher gets 476 years for sex abuse of a 13-year-old girl.
A Birmingham, Ala., youth minister took a 15-year-old girl to the next state for sex.
An Orange County, Calif., coach gets 180 days probation for child pornography cache.
How have these judges, teachers, coaches, ministers, firefighters, paramedics, NASA scientists, police, child group directors and their like treated those in their power?
The sexual revolution has been on a roll since the Kinsey bomb hit in 1948.
The lack of sexual inhibition leaves worldwide leaders subject to blackmail and bribery, and to secretly serving the special interests of other closet deviants.
As "hate crime" definitions become legislated, note that protecting "paraphilias" will absolutely empower misogynists, heterophobes, child molesters and sundry odd post-sexualized revolutionaries. Beyond "just" poverty, troubling times lay ahead.
Watch your judges, legislators, teachers and police – Oh, and let's hear it for sexual inhibition!
Reducing rape with an eraser
By Judith ReismanSeptember 12, 2006Recently, in writing about pornography's link to rape, I exposed some of the phony stats used by a very passionate law professor, Glenn Reynolds, who wants more pornography – ummm – to reduce rape.
Now Reynolds and Northwestern law professor Anthony D'Amato's, ''Porn up, Rape down'' essay is cited by psychologists and therapists to ridicule the damage done to the wives and children of pornography addicts.
D'Amato says rape is down because ''pornography has become freely available to teenagers and adults.''
If (as the FBI claims) rape declined ''85 percent'' since 1970, dad must continue drooling (and such) over pornographic images of teens, incest, sadism and bestiality.
Tennessee law professor Reynolds, D'Amato and their ilk say ''the sharp rise in access to pornography accounts for the decline in rape.''
My earlier article cited the many faults in such jingoist zealotry.
Here are a few others.
U.S. News and World Report (April 24, 2000) said, ''facing political heat to cut crime in the city, investigators in the New York PPD's Sex Crime Unit sat on (thousands of) reports of rapes and other sexual assaults.''
One officer snarled; ''The way crime was solved was with an eraser.''
In 2000 even the FBI admitted that one district ''failed to report between 13,000 and 37,000 major crimes.''
''A 2000 Philadelphia Inquirer report found from 1997-1999, of 300,000 sex crime reports, thousands of rapes got relabeled ''investigation of persons'' or ''investigation, protection, and medical examination'' – non-crime codes.''
''This puts one in four rapes in a non-crime category.''
Lying sure reduces rape!
Other real men confirm additional cover-ups.
Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, U.S. Army (Ret.) a renowned expert in human aggression and the roots of violence and violent crime, and a West Point psychology professor says:
''The downturn in violent crime in the U.S. in the 1990s is very deceptive. Violent crime … is still about 5 times greater today, per capita, than it was in 1957.''
''Plus, a five-fold increase in per capita incarceration is holding down violent crime – we'd have to let 1.5 million convicted offenders go to get down to a 1970's-level incarceration rate.''
On Grossman's point, The National Institute of Justice Managing Adult Sex Offenders (1997) reported:
''The number of adults convicted annually of rape, child molestation, or other forms of sexual assault and sentenced to state prisons more than doubled between 1980 (8,000) and 1992 (19,100). In 1994, state prisons held 88,100 sex offenders compared to 20,500 in 1980.''
Noting the millions taking high-powered antidepressants like Prozac, Grossman observes, ''we medicate, incarcerate and police ourselves at rates never seen before.''
Yet, he says, the biggest factor for lower crime rates is that ''we are lying about the data.''
''The ''Crimestat'' program made cops accountable for bringing down crime ... When the NYPD police union went over the data the crime rates doubled in New York City if the proper classifications were applied.''
Other than murder (held down by medical technology), the pressure on the cop on the beat means ''police artificially 'bring crime down' and the root causes of the crime get off scott free, because we cook the books.''
Denver Police Lt. James D. Ponzi, a Regis University professor and author of ''Compstat Revealed,'' is quoted in ''The American Police Beat,'' May 2005:
''In 1998, Sharon Schieber was raped and murdered.'' The lawsuit her parents filed ''revealed the practice of downgrading sexual crimes. Compstat turned into ''Compscam'' as departments cooked the books to lower crime rates.''
Lt. Ponzi got ''e-mails from different departments all over the country regarding statistics being altered in their cities.'' Pomzi added:
''… the crime category that you want to lower [is put] in another category that is not counted by the National Incident Based Reporting System [NIBRS] or is not in the public eye at that moment.''
''These 'lower' rape statistics don't reflect what is truly happening in sex related crimes.''
Just a few more examples:
''In 2004, the Policeman's Benevolent Association in New York City revealed officials were ''cooking the books'' to lower crime statistics.''
''Felonies were classified as misdemeanors, rapes were logged as ‘''inconclusive incidents.''
''Attempted murder in a drive-by-shooting where the victim is missed might be reclassified as ''criminal mischief.''
''LAPD reported a 28 percent drop in violent crime in 2005, the same year the department reclassified domestic assaults in which the victim suffered minor injuries or had no injuries.''
Since the FBI NIBRS counts only offense reports, not city charges, serious domestic violence – often tied to pornography use?is magically reduced by a city charge.
''On October 23, 2003, five New Orleans cops were fired for downgrading violent crime states.''
''On January 8, 2005, four members of the Broward County sheriff's command staff were fired. ''Sometimes a suspect would admit to dozens of crimes but only be charged with one.''
''In Atlanta, 22,000 crimes were left out of the crime reports. In New York, the crime rates doubled in a precinct when the proper classification was applied by the police union. The list goes on.''
''The cops try to do their job, but they are handcuffed by some feel-good administrators who will not back them on controversial issues.''
''Compstat relies on intimidation [and some] administrators will not investigate the numbers that make them look good.''
''Everyone is happy except the citizens who get nothing but a false sense of security about the safety of their cities.''
Concluded Lt. Pozi, ''In all my research, I didn't find any city where a chief was removed when the ''cookings'' came to light.''
So much for lawyerly fantasies of pornography reducing rape.
Our deepest gratitude to real men like Lt. Ponzi, Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and their colleagues – real men, still guarding women, children and our nation.
