Dante reserved his second ring of Hell for the lustful, but I have to believe that if Hell had such divisions then pedophiles would live in the seventh ring for committing crimes of violence against their neighbors. There’s no ring associated with incredibly stupid people who make abysmal business choices in the pursuit of wealth. They are relegated to working for Amazon.com, the pedophile’s preferred outlet for all material related to sex with the prepubescent set.
Who in their right mind at Amazon thought it was a good idea to sell a book titled The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover’s Code of Conduct? The author, Philip R. Greaves II, described his $4.79 downloadable e-book as “my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certain rules for these adults to follow. I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter sentences should they ever be caught.”
First of all, “pedosexual” and “pedosexuality” are not real words. They were created by the sick-bastard crowd as “value neutral” words to de-stigmatize sexual attraction between an adult and a child. They have yet to be included in the dictionary. The only way to describe pedophilia in “value neutral” terms is to first devalue the eight-year-old boy who has just been sodomized. Secondly, the best way for “pedosexuals” to show their better nature is to play Russian Roulette. With six loaded chambers.
I’m not certain which idea scrambles my brains more, the “better nature of pedosexuals” or Greaves’ call for “safer” sex between a juvenile and an adult. Safer, as in “safe sex?” Is he advocating condom use? A code word for when it’s time to untie your partner? There is no safe sex between an adult and a child. The damage inflicted upon the child is just shy of irreparable. Not that the pedophile particularly cares about the physical, emotional and spiritual health of the child they’ve just desecrated. The only “liter” sentence for pedophiles should be the cigarette lighter sentence. And a can of gasoline.
I’ve been scratching my head since I first read this story on Wednesday. Someone at Amazon had to make a decision that this material was not only acceptable to sell, but that it didn’t violate Amazon’s selling policies.
“Hey, Bob. Do you think we should sell The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover’s Code of Conduct?”
“Gee, I dunno, Fred. Does it violate any of our corporate policies?”
“Hmmm…that’s good question. Our website states that listings for items that Amazon deems offensive are prohibited on Amazon.com. What we deem "offensive" is probably about what you would expect. I don’t find it offensive, do you?”
“A book about sex between adults and children? It doesn’t offend me.”
“Is it on the prohibited items list?”
“We can’t sell child pornography.”
“Are there any pictures?”
What were these people thinking?
