The other day Salon ran a piece about a “scientific” study that made the astounding claim that we can cut down on child rape by allowing degenerates to view child pornography. To her credit, Tracy Clark-Flory surprised child advocates everywhere by almost disagreeing with such putrid pseudo-science:

The study certainly raises interesting philosophical questions about promoting objectionable material to prevent real-world crimes — but it’s also majorly flawed. A couple of big-time caveats: Diamond’s research finds a correlation between child pornography and sex abuse, which is not the same as causation; and in the Czech case, pornography in general (including kiddie porn) was legalized, not just kiddie porn. It’s also worth noting that the observed drop is in reported child sex abuse.

Like I said, almost. Surely she would probably lose her precious slot at Salon if she actually pointed out that this so-called study is little more than Kinsey-esque data manipulation designed to help the cause of child pornographers, so her tepid criticism is welcome and appreciated.

What she didn’t point out in her milquetoast critique was that child pornography is itself a crime of sexual abuse. The images and videos we’re talking about are the evidence of sexual exploitation of children of the most horrible and degrading kind. Too many people don’t understand what child pornography actually entails and thus see it as the lesser of two evils, as opposed to part of the overall victimization of the most helpless amongst us.

This brings me to the leering visage above. The grinning baby boomer pictured is a child pornographer named James Philips Edwards who I blogged about a year ago. The 60-year-old was caught filming himself drugging girls as young as four with Ambien laced soft drinks and ice cream. He then stripped them from the waist down and digitally raped some, and simply filmed the genitals of the others. In at least one video he was seen to be spitting in the face of an unconscious child.

And there are people claiming that these films should be distributed to pedophiles as a therapeutic tool?
