Dannevirke brothel to feature All Blacks themed room

A newspaper report from Dannevirke featuring a comment which equates gay men with paedophiles has angered the manager of a nationwide LGBT support service.

In a meeting of Dannevirke residents who oppose plans for a brothel opening in the small town's main street, the president of the Tararua chapter of the Full Gospel Business Men's fellowship - a religious group reacted specifically to a plan by the brothel to offer a gay service.

According to the Manawatu Standard, Garth Taylor announced: "Most paedophiles are homosexuals, and you know we don't want to bring that here."

"This is shocking," reacts Lesley Balcham, General Manager of LGBT support network OUTline. "I am outraged that this comment was even printed.

"We here at OUTLine exist to fight against misconceptions like this. It is a common myth that most paedophiles are homosexuals. The portrayal found here only reinforces the misconceptions, prejudice and barriers that we the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and takataapui community face.

"Our service provides education to the broader community on healthy relationships and lifestyles. One of our objectives is to help break down these misconceptions to build a harmonious society based on understanding and acceptance."

The resource consent hearing for Dannevirke's brothel is next Wednesday. Another concerned resident, who describes herself as a feminist, threatened to wait outside and take personal note of all patrons of the future brothel if it opened for business.

Its an absurd comparison, and serves to only minimize pedophilia.

Would you consider an adult who seeks sex with children of the same sex to be a homosexual?

George Michael, in black, joins Elton John on stage, for parody of homosexual sex with "Cub Scouts."

The term pedophile is used to apply to those who seek/obtain sex with children, male or female.
However, males who seek/obtain sex with male children are not only pedophiles, they are homosexuals.
Whereas we can't say ALL homosexuals are pedophiles, we can say with certainty that SOME homosexuals are pedophiles.
Which ones? Will they turn their brothers in so folks can get over this?
Probably not ~ and there's the problem.
...........................................
Some estimate place the number of male homosexuals as equal to the number of male pedophiles who select only male children as sexual targets.
..................................................
You can take that number for what it means ~ I think the folks in that town know that.

takataapui: just a special word for a gay or lesbian Maori. I had to look that one up.

Actually, most pedophiles are heterosexual men, or at least publicly heterosexual men.

So would you consider a pedophile who abused young men a homosexual?

NAMBLA tries to blur the distinction between the mainstream gays and themselves, while the mainstream groups do everything in their power to deny it.

I have respect for my gay male friends who aren't pedophiles. A pedophile is always a pedophile, whether he prefers girls or boys. A lot of them don't even care which, they are into the powerlessness of their victims more than the gender.

After all, we don't refer to a pedophile who prefers girls as a "heterosexual pedophile".

Exactly. Nowhere in the definitions of Homosexuality are there listed age ranges.

Not exactly, how do you know how they work? Maybe it's age and not gender to them.

If that were the case, then they would be attacking both male and female children. Generally, these kinds of predator go for a specific target based on their sexuality. A gay pedophile will seek young boys, while a straight pedophile will seek young girls. According to the FBI profilers who deal with sexual predators, there is a difference between those who prey on children who appear to be adults (precocious teens) and those who target children who look like children. The former are seeking partners who are physically mature but not emotionally, which provides them with a non-threatening sex object, while the latter seek victims who cannot even give the illusion of consent. The orientation, however, is still hetero or homosexual.

The inference your statements make is that being a pedophile negates his/her sexual orientation.

In Florida most pedophiles seem to be female teachers from the Tampa/St. Pete area. At least that what can be gleaned from reading the Dreudge Report over the last few years.

I do think that the issue is touchy for gay men who are not pedophiles-I understand why they want to draw a clear line between the two terms. It's not that I don't think that messing with kids precludes being homosexual, but my gay male friend who has a partner in the same age-range, and a committed relationship to boot doesn't deserve to be lumped in a category with pedophiles.
