It seems that the San Diego LGBT Pride Parade has a long history of problems associated with pedophilia, including hiring a number of registered sex offenders. However this year they truly crossed the lines to practically endorsing pedophilia by naming pedophilia activist Peter Tatchell as the International Grand Marshal. The fact that such a person even exists, let alone to be endorsed by an organization that also receives taxpayer funded services, is incomprehensible.
Mr. Tatchell's website (which I won't link to but which can be found easy enough) includes topic titles such as
- "Lowering the unrealistic age of consent will help teenagers: The criminalisation of teen sex inhibits advice and protection,"
- "SEX RIGHTS FOR THE UNDER-16s, Young people under 16 have sexual rights too,"
- "I'M 14, I'M GAY & I WANT A BOYFRIEND, Fourteen year old LEE tells about first sex, boyfriends, coming out, paedophilia, and why an age of consent of 16 won't help under-age gays like him."
- "CONSENT AT 16: PROTECTION OR PERSECUTION, Young people under 16 have a right to make their own sexual choices without being victimised by the law."
How this man is not immediately arrested instead of being honored at a parade is beyond me.
