A shocking report published by “international legal experts” and supported by the United Nations opens the door to the normalization of any sexual fantasy with minors, a disturbing throwback to the worst and most macabre communist fantasies of 1968. The Geneva-based International Commission of Jurists wrote in March, with the help of UNAIDS and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, that sexual conduct involving persons below the nationally prescribed minimum age may in fact be consensual, if not entered in law. A subtle and clear de facto opening of the doors to pedophilia and adult-child sexual freedom.
The report, released to mark the International Women’s Day, is titled March 8 Principles for a Human Rights-Based Approach. The document does not explicitly call for decriminalizing sex between adults and minors but, at the same time, states that children under the age of 18 have both the capacity and the legal right to make sexual decisions. According to the United Nations, therefore, children can consent to sex with adults. The report does not propose a suggested age of sexual consent even though the once unthinkable recommendations seem to suggest that pedophilia could be normalized, or at least endured and not punished when there is “child consent”. Perhaps the UN still does not know how much and in what way children are conditioned by adults. This horrendous U.N. report not only clearly opens the main door for the legalization of pedophilia, but also opens wide the door for sex, any kind of sex, among minors themselves, giving international legal substance to the mad idea of “communist communes” that dotted the lives of various communist cities and groups in Europe and around the world from 1960 to the 1970s, in which sex, drugs and music were the viaticum of full anarchy and libertinism.
The International Commission of Jurists that wrote the UN report is clear on this point: “In this context [historic and social], the application of criminal law should reflect the rights and capacity of persons under the age of 18 to make decisions about engaging in consensual sexual behavior and their right to be heard in matters that affect them… Based on their developmental capacities and progressive autonomy, persons under the age of 18 should participate in decisions that affect them, with due regard to their age, maturity and right to be heard.” Will it be a coincidence that the main coordinator of the team of international lawyers who worked for this report is a well-known gay man?
“For having worked in the law for a long time and as a proudly gay man, I am intimately familiar with how the criminal law signals which groups are considered worthy of protection–and which are considered worthy of condemnation and ostracism,” wrote the retired judge Edwin Cameron of the Constitutional Court of South Africa in the preface of the report, adding that in this way, criminal law performs an expressive function and has dramatic consequences on people’s lives. Sometimes it involves a harshly discriminatory impact on groups identified with the disapproved or stigmatized conduct.
Even more unacceptable to anyone who is a citizen in any country in the world is that this group of “experts” has been paid for by all of us “along a five-year consultative process, following an initial meeting of legal experts convened in 2018 by the ICJ-along with the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR)–to discuss the role of jurists in addressing the negative human rights impacts of certain criminal laws.”
Not just the UN, but all of us are guilty of what is and could be happening and is being imposed on us from Geneva to New York. We must demand and know how to choose politicians who will represent us and who oppose, even to the point of cutting off funding, an international organization so intimately corrupt and evil.
