Bill Muehlenberg's commentary on issues of the day...

Sexualising our Toddlers

May 18, 2010

As soon as I saw the headline my mind went to Table 34. Sure, they are not identical, but they are both in the same ballpark. So what in the world am I talking about? The headline in question is this: “Sex quiz for toddlers”. And Table 34 refers to gruesome experiments conducted on toddlers and even babies by sexologist Alfred Kinsey.

The news item, found in today’s Herald Sun, begins this way: “Children as young as three have been questioned about kissing and flirting in a project by a university researcher from Melbourne. Monash University’s Dr Mindy Blaise, who spent five days at an unnamed childcare centre, wants sexuality to be an official subject at kinders and preschool centres. It would include discussions about homosexuality. Dr Blaise said it was important that kids felt ‘healthy sexuality was not dirty or wrong’. Boys and girls as young as three were asked questions such as ‘Are you a flirt? and ‘Have you ever kissed a boy?’”

Here we go again – another know-it-all sexpert invading the lives of very young children. Just how much sex is on the brain of a three-year-old for heaven’s sake? It seems these Monash eggheads would have us believe toddlers have deep thoughts and discussions about sexuality just like we find in Sex in the City.

There’s little Bobby talking about his latest orgasm; little Lisa remarking on her fling with homosexuality; and tiny Tina speculating on the best methods of contraception. Yep those toddlers are sex-obsessed alright, and the sooner we adults have some deep and meaningfuls with them the better.

Pul-leeese. When are we going to put these academics out of their misery? They are causing enough damage with adults and teens. Now they want to meddle with our toddlers, and turn them into informed sex experts before they even know who is playing for the Melbourne Football Club or what 10 times 12 is.

This is nothing other than a type of child abuse. To deliberately foist adult concepts of sexuality on very young children who simply are not ready physically, mentally, psychologically or emotionally is irresponsible in the extreme. Indeed, it reminds me of some despicable “research” conducted on very young children years ago by Kinsey, the American sexual pervert.

He is the one who infamously conducted his experiments into sexuality, trying to undermine the morality of a generation. I have written up this rather vile character elsewhere, so let me here simply quote from myself:

“Kinsey of course is the notorious American sexologist (1894-1956), whose agenda was to soften up the public to the view that any and every sort of sexuality is permissible. He sought to convince us that there is no norm when it comes to human sexuality, and that we should embrace any sexual expression whatsoever. Here are some of his ‘findings’:

“-All orgasms are ‘outlets’ and are equally valid – whether between husband and wife, boy and dog, man and man or adult and child – for in sexual expression, normal is individually determined.

“-The more ‘outlets,’ the healthier the person – and beginning as early as possible is better than waiting.

“-Human beings are naturally bisexual. Religious bigotry and prejudice force people into chastity, heterosexuality and monogamy.

“-There is no medical or other reason for adult-child sex or incest to be forbidden.

“People like Hugh Hefner of Playboy fame of course helped to carry out this agenda. And today we see the result of this social and sexual revolution: broken families, marriage disintegration, a tsunami of pornography, including child pornography, an epidemic of promiscuity and sexually transmitted diseases, skyrocketing abortion rates, a crisis in teenage pregnancies, an explosion of rape and sexual assault, and a culture that believes that hedonism is the highest good, and self control and restraint the greatest evil.”

So what about the children of Table 34? That too I have written up before, so let me again draw upon my earlier material about a Hollywood film which sought to turn Kinsey into some sort of saint:

“Thus a whole range of sexual activity that used to be frowned upon has become normalised because of Kinsey. But it is not only the fruits of his research that was dangerous; so too was the research itself. We know that Kinsey and his associates used children ranging from 5 months to fourteen years in his sex experiments.

“For example, in Table 34 of his Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948), Kinsey sought to show that the youngest of children could be sexually active. He said that even ‘the youngest males, as young as 5 months in age, are capable of such repeated reactions [orgasms]’ In the table, four-year-old boys, for example, were sexually stimulated for 24 uninterrupted hours. A five month baby is said to have produced 3 orgasms in an unspecified amount of time.

“An eleven month baby is reported to have had 14 orgasms in 38 minutes. The book also examines some of the reactions to such ‘experimentation.’ These ranged from ‘extreme tension with violent convulsion … gasping, eyes staring … mouth distorted, sometimes with tongue protruding … whole body or parts of it spasmodically twitching … groaning, sobbing, or more violent cries … more or less frenzied movements … extreme trembling, collapse, loss of color, and sometimes fainting … of subject.’ These reactions, recorded with cold, clinical precision, are nothing less than descriptions of criminal child abuse.

“Remarkably, however, the study of the reactions concludes by noting that the subject ‘will fight away from the partner and may make violent attempts to avoid climax, although they derive definite pleasure from the situation.’ Does that sound like pleasure? It sounds like child sexual assault of the worst kind.

“And as one paediatrician noted, ‘these children had to be held down or subject to strapping down, otherwise they would not respond willingly.’ Thus it is amazing that Hollywood should come out with this hagiography on Kinsey. We have such huge problems with child pornography right now, and our entertainment capital will simply compound the problem.

“Indeed, the film will cover up a lot of details about Kinsey. For example, decades ago Kinsey renamed paedophilia as ‘cross-generational sexual contact’. And as mentioned already, Kinsey was quite happy to use paedophiles in his research on human sexuality.”

I challenge you to read those last five paragraphs again. If they do not make you physically ill, then perhaps you need to do a check-up on the state of your humanity and morality. These were absolutely revolting “experiments” which would have traumatised those young babies and children for perhaps their entire lives.

Yet our sexperts think this is all good and important “research”. Now what these Monash academics were doing was not in the same league as was what Kinsey was doing. But both groups are operating under the same premises: that babies and children are sexualised beings and adults can feel free to force their sexual concepts onto them.

There is another group in society which also wants to soften little kids up to all things sexual: the paedophiles. They also believe little children are sexually active and need to interact with adults. They love it when we can sexualise them at the earliest possible age.

I am sure the Monash eggheads have no such thing as this in mind. But they should know better that other groups do have such things in mind, and anything that softens kids up to such dangers should be avoided at all costs. All we can say about these Monash researchers is shame, shame, shame.

  • Reading half of the first of those paragraphs once was enough to make me feel ill.

    It seems that children must be protected from Christian influences and exposed to everything else. How did we let this happen? (That’s a rhetorical question, but one which me must all ask ourselves, and then do our utmost – through the grace of God – to turn back the tide.)

    Dominic Snowdon

  • It’s no surprise that society walks down this evil path- Where else can you go when God is denied and you no longer have ANY moral absoutes?
    Physical repulsion is an understatement when assesing my response to reading those paragraphs. “Moral outrage” is also what I felt but as the atheists would say “there is no such thing as morality…”

    Richard Lyons

  • Will there be enough millstones to go around? No matter how we recoil from the thought of eternal damnation, this hideous stuff helps us to understand a little, what total rejection of God leads to and why it ends in damnation.
    Anna Cook

  • After reading this article I feel physically upset. I suppose in a sense that is a good thing.
    I’m reminded of these verses: Rom 1:28:
    “Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.”

    But ending in a positive note with Phil 2:15-16:
    [We should] “…become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life.”

    Gerrit Kruger

  • Quote: “When one child noted that the crocodiles were a boy and girl, Dr Blaise noted that the children appeared to think only about heterosexuality. Not once did children talk about the possibility of girls being attractive for other girls, or boys being cool for other boys, she concluded.”

    Very telling, eh? What was that again about people being born gay?

    Jereth Kok

  • Oh Father God, save us from deception. Amen
    Greg Brien

  • I believe that capital punishment should be restored for people who sexually abuse children and babies.
    Despite modern theology, the Scriptures sanction capital punishment for heinous crimes and even modern day liberalised Catholics run a thousand miles from the words of Popes before John Paul II who not only stated that capital punishment for heinous crimes was perfectly allright in terms of deterrence but even in terms of just punishment. We hear little today about just punishment. People run a thousand miles from this essential purpose of the law.
    Michael Webb

  • Thanks Michael

    I am certainly with you on the capital punishment issue, as I wrote here:
    https://billmuehlenberg.com/2007/10/11/on-capital-punishment-part-1/
    and here:
    https://billmuehlenberg.com/2007/10/12/on-capital-punishment-part-2/

    And I can think of no better candidate than a sleazeball like Kinsey.

    Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch

  • Thankyou, you said it all!
    Naomi Hall

  • The article you refer to in the Herald Sun is astounding. I would assume/hope the director of the child care facility has lost his/her position and been replaced with a director who is more responsible and professional. This is obviously a breach of child protection that is such an important part of Early Childhood Education and care.

    Sonja Bowen Couroupis (Bachelor of Teaching Early Childhood Education and 18 years of teaching experience)

  • Jesus said “Whatever you do to these little ones you do to me!”
    Jane Byrne

  • Apparently she got parental consent for all this. I wonder how much she told them beforehand – I bet she didn’t list the actual questions she was about to ask. The parents should launch a class action against her for doing something under false pretences.
    Michael Angelico

  • Michael, it may be even worse than that. The H-S article only says:
    “Pam Cahir, chief executive of the Early Childhood Association, which publishes the journal, said she did not have a problem with the research.

    She said it had been approved by the university ethics committee and parents.”

    “approved by the parents” expressed as a collective statement doesn’t sound to me like specific consent. It may have been approval by a parents sub-committee of the child care facility, so that the parents of the specific subject children, when asked for consent, might possibly have been told ONLY:
    “this is the research that has already been approved by the Parents Management Committee – sign here please”.

    It’s horrid stuff.

    John Angelico

  • …and another thing to notice:

    The H-S article says “The research was paid for by the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality, a US-based organisation dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about sexuality. But Dr Blaise is employed by Monash University, a taxpayer-funded university.”

    This is the website of that society,
    http://www.sexscience.org/
    which has under its awards category a Kinsey Award!

    And Bill, you might be interested in the names of the staff and board.

  • Think what will happen in Britain! Recently politician Nick Clegg said homosexuality was “normal and harmless” – and the context was about “teaching” it in schools. Now he is part of the leadership of the Westminster government (actually, the European Community government has all the power – and it’s even worse). Soon schools will be grooming children for a lifetime the abortion clinic, disease and death by AIDS, etc. The government is the child abuser. In societies like ours, badness comes from the top down, not the other way.
    John Thomas, UK

  • Mr Muehlenberg, I could not even finish the article, I was too disguted…

    As on person (Stephen S) correctly noted, for the Liberal: Crisis = opportunity. Exactly how they are… and it just shows how self centered these liberals really are. They will push their sickening propaganda at cost of the future of a society. My mom works at a School in South Africa, as a child counselor and therapist, and she just told me over the phone about the sex education that took place in the gr. 6 (children more or less 12 yrs. of age) classroom. Apparently, it was describing sex in the most explicit ways that moral people can hardly imagine, and some of the children literally tried to stick fingers in their ears saying “we do not want to hear this”, but they were forced.

    And the SA government thinks that this mental and moral RAPE, of young minds will resolve the AIDS pandemic? I don’t think so. Don’t know what to say anymore about sex Ed. It just makes me wanna trow up.

    What is it that the liberal is pushing for, what are they trying to accomplish?

    Eleana van Niekerk

  • Hi Bill,
    Thanks for drawing our attention to this matter, I felt extremely ill reading it. While I appreciate that Dr Blaise hasn’t gone as far as Mr Kinsey, I just wonder how the ethics department of any university could sanction such research. Surely they’ve put themselves at risk of being criminally negligent. If what you say about this man’s research is true, what parent would allow their child to be subjected to such sort of question? The situation reflects not just the academic world, the general ignorance in our society of the damaging effects of sex outside marriage, both on individuals and society at large.
    Kevin Maxwell

  • One clear moral of this sad story is not to let your children anywhere near non-Christian childcare, kindergartens or schools for that matter. A few years ago I revisited my former school and was shocked to see posters everywhere proclaiming that homosexuality was not just to be accepted but really cool. Things had obviously got very mixed up in just a few short years. In the eighties and nineties, “poof” or “homo” was the standard insult. We’re entering a brave new world.

    Mansel Rogerson

  • Dr Blaise’s ‘research’ was published in the latest edition of the Australasian Journal of Early Childhood, which is devoted to such topics as “embracing diversity: challenging the norm”, “queer literature for inclusive practices”, and “children’s understanding of sexuality” . . . no really, seriously!

    Ben Williams

  • Bill
    someone should contact Monash to find out if she’s got ethical clearance for her study, and if so, how did the university grant ethical clearance for such research.
    cheers,
    Henry Lim

  • Thanks John A and Ben for pointing out the links and connections. The truth is, there are a whole bunch of these radical social engineering groups in bed together, working to undermine marriage and family, and destroy our children’s innocence.

    Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch

  • Thanks Henry

    According to the press reports, Monash did give approval: “the research had been passed by the university’s ethical review board without any concerns”. That tells us a lot about the ethics – or lack thereof – of Monash University.

  • Hmm … seems Aldous Huxley was right in the picture of the future he painted in Brave New World.

    This is obviously not a good thing. Don’t these morons read anymore?

    Jason Rennie

  • Thanks Jason

    If they are literate, and they are reading, they are obviously reading all the wrong stuff.

    Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch

  • You might be right Bill. Or worse yet, they are reading Brave New World and thinking of it as a blueprint instead of as a warning.

    Jason Rennie

  • A very well written article Bill. I saw this covered on television a couple of nights ago and I must admit the segment made my blood boil also. Why can’t children be allowed to be children? The information passed on by these boofheads, would be damaging to adults and yet they are attempting to conscript these toddlers into their life styles. It is true of many so-called academics, that they often lack the common sense of the blue collar worker and the farmer.
    Frank Bellet, Petrie Qld

  • Hi Bill,

    You have to wonder what the point of this “research” is. What is their agenda? What good can come from the research? Why do we need to sexually profile 4 year olds? I think more can be discovered by profiling the researchers… What type of parents would allow their kids to be subjected to such an experience? After reading about the poor teenage girl getting raped by 4 animals in a public toilet and then this…. it is not a very good Wednesday!

    Ben Green

  • Thanks Ben

    I have already suggested a possible agenda: there are many who hate marriage and family, and are into social engineering big time. Indeed, go to the links provided in the above comments, and see for yourself what these radicals and sexual anarchists are seeking to do. This is not happening by accident.

    Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch

  • Hi Bill & Ben,

    I guess my thought was. What do they hope to achieve by this sort of insanity? I am sure they have goals, and they are clearly from the very pits of hell, but what do they think will happen to the society if they succeed in their lunatic aims?

    They seek to destroy the foundations of the culture and what are they hoping will be erected in its place?

    The saddest part for them will come when the inevitable backlash comes. What do they think will happen to them when the nihilists they have created realize the suffering they have foisted upon them?

    Jason Rennie

  • Hi Jason,

    You probably haven’t had a chance to read Sowell’s Vision of the Anointed yet.

    In this book he attempts to answer your question by noting that one of the defining features of left-wing humanists is their high-view of man. Civilisation then is not a fragile veneer that requires years of struggle by millions to achieve and maintain. It is rather a robust given which springs up naturally wherever man is. Therefore they see no danger in making massive changes to laws and customs which have been won by our ancestors’ struggles over the centuries.

    Pointing to past and current examples of failed states unfortunately cuts no ice with these lefties. These examples are just evidence of a conspiracy of multinationals and rich nations driven by racism to keep these poor people poor you see!

    But you also ask what do they hope to put in its place by destroying the civilisation we have. Their high view of man also provides this answer. In their view, the best man really does know what is best for the rest, and being the best is so morally pure that any checks and balances would only hamper his programme (witness today’s statement by Woody Allen that he would like to see Obama made dictator). In short they wish for a totalitarian state, so long as the leader is their kind of man.

    But the family is a great barrier to this project, because it naturally engenders ties of loyalty stronger than the state. Methods of achieving their goal therefore rely on weakening the family and strengthening the state. One of these ways is to indoctrinate children with the state sanctioned view. And the more these views are anathema to parents the better – it weakens the family and simultaneously strengthens the state. This is what we are seeing happening in Bill’s article.

    I don’t mean to imply all this is a centrally orchestrated conspiracy. It happens because many individual lefties share the same goal which is the logical outworking of their beliefs. They simply work in whatever sphere they’re in to further this goal.

  • Judging from the comments read on this site, coupled with those from the Herald Sun, NO ONE is happy about this.
    So we all know who the name of this person, and we all know where she works.
    All it takes is a polite phone call or letter from each and every person to express their disgust.
    Jane Petridge

  • Homosexuals, pinkoes, gays, LGBts, GLBTs, queers, sodomites, whatever and however these camelions wish to self identify, demand that we don’t poke our noses into what they do behind bedroom doors. That is private they say and of no concern of ours. And yet they do not hesitate to invade our homes, schools, nurseries and touch the most intimate parts of our lives – the apples of our eyes – our children.

    Ladies and gentlemen it is time to protect our own – not theirs or that of the state – but ours.

    David Skinner, UK

  • The question’s need to be asked:
    1) Which Childcare Centre?
    2) Were the parents of the Children who go to that Centre advised and asked for permission?
    3) Were the parents of the Children who were interviewed privy to the actual questions and did they give their permission?
    4) Does ‘PHD’ behing the ‘Dr’ title of this lewd and disgraceful woman in this instance stand for ‘Permanent Head Damage’?
    Why hasnt anyone chased this up? Did the anonymous Child Care Centre allow such to happen without the parents consent?
    Dorian Ballard

  • We need to learn our history:

    Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”

    “In 1919, Georg Lukacs became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun regime in Hungary. He immediately set plans in motion to de-Christianize Hungary. Reasoning that if Christian sexual ethics could be undermined among children, then both the hated patriarchal family and the Church would be dealt a crippling blow. Lukacs launched a radical sex education program in the schools. Sex lectures were organized and literature handed out which graphically instructed youth in free love (promiscuity) and sexual intercourse while simultaneously encouraging them to deride and reject Christian moral ethics, monogamy, and parental and church authority. All of this was accompanied by a reign of cultural terror perpetrated against parents, priests, and dissenters.”

  • The following speaks for itself regarding the way society is going. Imagine reading your newspaper “The Daily Waffle”

    Headline:

    2 more children were sacrificed to Molech this morning outside of the city, bringing the total to more than 2 million worldwide over the past 10 years.

    The price of cheese is to rise by 1%

    Response from our readers.

    “How dare this government increase the price of cheese by an astonishing 1% this is an OUTRAGE and we the people will not stand for this price rise.Please join us on a march this week to tell the government this is not acceptable.

    p.s. sorry about the children, but our human rights to be able to afford cheese should be honoured.

  • I cannot believe these people are allowed to speak these things in public, much less interview these poor kids.
    Hilary Gilbert

  • Society going to the dogs. I just feel so frustrated and helpless. I almost feel like committing some violence around the place but as a man of Jesus I know that is not to be and not what our Lord requires. I cannot believe that there are such people in this world with their twisted mind set.
    May the good Lord protect these little ones from society’s predators.

    Many thanks for your site Bill, and God bless you and yours. Thank you for letting me sound off.

    Peter Button, UK

  • Peter,

    We all share frustrations but violence as a solution would never be sanctioned by God. We must trust His methods, however hopeless things may seem. Think of the disciples scattered and then watching their hope literally die on the cross in front of them. Imagine how they would’ve felt when his lifeless body – the one who had taught and performed miracles – was taken down. And yet, the story did not finish there.

    Our call is to be faithful disciples where we are – one day we shall see the magnificent brilliance of His plan, but now we only see in part. It doesn’t matter how bad it gets, God wins.

  • Oh Brave New World indeed … erotic play, anyone?

    Incidentally, I came across this blog post recently, which describes the relativisation of morality and cites an article documenting a book published in Switzerland called ‘Help children masturbate.’ If you can stomach it, it is another sad example on this topic.

  • Hi Bill

    There is a book I have ordered from my book store that has only just come out in the US (this month actually). I heard about it when Michael Savage interviewed Judith Riesman on his radio show last week.

    The book is called: Sexual Sabotage: How One Mad Scientist Unleashed a Plague of Corruption and Contagion on America. By Dr. Judith A. Reisman. (WMD 2010)

    I think she has written other books on this Alfred Kinsey. I can’t believe I only first heard of this guy at the end of last year. What cave have I been living in?

    Carl Strehlow

  • Here is Dr. Judith A. Reisman’s web site:

    http://www.drjudithreisman.com/

    Carl Strehlow

  • Thanks Carl

    Thanks for the tip on this new book. She has written a number of good books on related topics, including this important volume on Kinsey:

    Eichel, Edward and Judith Reisman, Kinsey, Sex and Fraud: The Indoctrination of a People. Lafayette, Louisiana: Huntington House, 1990.

    Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch

  • Hi Bill,

    The book had come into my book store after 2 and a half weeks and it is more an eyeopener than the introduction of West’s book Darwin Day in America. I am nearly half way through Sexual Sabotage and Reisman is suggesting going back to pre-Kinsey morality. I said before I just can’t believe that I never heard of Kinsey and that his books are still in print. Unbelievable! Definitely want to read some of her other works.
