"He is a man who recruited, wooed and solicited
pedophiles, not pedophiles in prison but pedophiles out of prison to find
children and to sexually torture them." Judith Reisman, Ph.D. and author
of Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences.
"It's all true. He hired people to abuse children on the record. And record
their findings. It was unbelievable." Charles Rice, law professor, University
of Notre Dame and author of Fifty Questions on Natural Law.
Alfred Kinsey was one seriously disgusting, disturbed guy.
The father of the modern sexual revolution and the author of the acclaimed
1948 study of male sexuality and a 1953 study on female sexuality was a
sado-masochistic bisexual. But perhaps the worst thing about him was his
celebration of the sexual abuse of children, including infants as young
as two months old.
On a larger scale, he wreaked havoc on post-World War II America. He promoted
a way of life based on false data that was aimed atand succeededin
undermining the Judeo-Christian moral foundation of the American legal system.
"He is the godfather of the whole movement to liberalize laws in this area.
The changes of the laws that came out were the results of Kinsey's investigations,"
says Charles Rice, law professor of the University of Notre Dame, and author
of Fifty Questions on Natural Law.
Yet a new movie is being made starring the charismatic Liam Neeson, and
a Kinsey bio-flick is currently airing on the Arts and Entertainment Networks.
Another one is in the works for PBS's The American Experience (scheduled
for February 2005 broadcast).
"I didn't have any hesitation," when offered the role, Neeson
told the New York Times. "He saw a gap in our human knowledge
that he wanted to fill," the actor opined. "He was driven to investigate
it. I admire that extraordinary work ethic." This despite Kinsey writing
that he "rejoiced" at receiving data on the abuse of a two-month old infant
from a sex abuser.
Kinsey was a sado-masochist says Ignatius Press author Benjamin Wiker,co-author
of Architects of the Culture of Death, a series of profiles. Judith
Reisman, Ph.D., author of Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences, agrees.
Not only that, she says, but his data was bad.
"People need to know his research was not research. It never was. That he
used deviant aberrant men and called them normal. He threw out 75 percent
of his population and lied about it. Forced people to give answers to questions
the way he wanted the answers and then changed the answers," Reisman told
IgnatiusInsight.com. "This is strictly propaganda."
The Harvard-educated Kinsey was the expert on the gall wasp, and
he parlayed that recognition into pseudo-science with rigged databases and
outright lies to support works aimed at destroying the entire Judeo-Christian
system of sexual and family values, contends Wiker.
However, the Kinsey Institute today does not acknowledge any major flaws
in its founder's studies. It says Kinsey's data collection has been challenged
in general but it has held up, particularly regarding the percentage of
homosexuals in the population. It republished the Kinsey reports unchanged
on their 50th anniversary in 1998. The Institute specifically says Kinsey
did not engage in child sexual abuse and that statistics on children's sexuality
were drawn from interviews with nine people and with observations of parents.
A benefit showing of the Bill Condon-directed movie Kinsey is scheduled
for Nov. 13 at the Institute, with Condon and Neeson's co-star Laura Linney
The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction continues
under the aegis of the University of Indiana. The Kinsey Institute web site
claims Kinsey's interest in human sexuality grew out of a course on marriage
he was teaching and that he and his staff interviewed over 18,000 people
about their sexual lives. Sexual Behavior in the Human Male was published
in 1948 and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female in 1953. Kinsey died
in 1956 at age 62.
"The sole purpose of Kinsey's various studies was to legitimate any
and every kind of sexual activity, from adultery and homosexuality, to pedophilia
and bestiality," Architects of Death co-author Wiker told
Kinsey engaged in a series of brutal and perverse sexual practices from
the time he was a youth, Reisman said. Noted Kinsey biographer James H.
Jones, Alfred C. Kinsey: A Public/Private Life, wrote Kinsey was
raised in a repressive Christian household and had a very poor relationship
with his father. Jones says Kinsey engaged in genital self-mutilation and
that his research data was skewed. Jones, however, is sympathetic to Kinsey
and maintains that many of Kinsey's conclusions were valid.
Kinsey wrote to the abuser of 800 children, "I rejoice at everything you
send, for I am then assured that that much more of your material is saved
for scientific publication." A British documentary found that Kinsey was
actually getting information from a Nazi child abuser in Poland during World
War II, says Ron Ray, a retired Marine Corps Colonel, of RSVP
America, an organization battling the effects of Kinsey's work on the
Kinsey's research into the sexual practices of humans included at least
1,400 pedophiles, Reisman said.
"He redefined them as normal American men and he said we need to change
all of our laws because this is what all men do. Joe College does it, Daddy
does it, so therefore all of our laws need to be gutted," says Reisman.
He created out of whole cloth the statistic that 10 to 30 percent of the
male population is homosexual and this statistic continues to be used by
gay rights advocates, even though later studies have found 1to 4 percent
of the population is homosexual, Wiker notes.
"This is a man who wrote about children fainting and having convulsions
and screaming and writhing in pain and he called that pleasure," said Reisman.
Even though his work was discredited to a large degree by many academics
by the time the second study on female sexuality came out in 1953, an astounding
200,000 copies of the male study sold in two months, according to writer
Sue Ellin Browder in a May Crisis Magazine article. Kinsey's "research"
had already taken hold within the American psyche.
References to Kinsey's reports are found throughout the legal world, in
sex education courses, and, of course, in studies of human sexuality. Reisner
notes that Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy magazine and promoter
of the sexploitation of women, did his college thesis on Kinsey and was
clearly influenced by him.
Kinsey's work was used to throw out common law and to replace it with The
Model Penal Code, says Ray. Adoption of the Model Penal Code eliminated
and/or trivialized prior sex offenses, eventually aiding the reduction
of penalties for abortion, rape, wife and child battery, and a host
of other crimes, RSVP America says on its website.
"This guy's been dead since 1956. It's the consequences we're living with,"
Ray, who assisted Reisman in the legal chapter of her book, told IgnatiusInsight.com.
A Kinseyan expert was cited in the Roe v. Wade ruling legalizing abortion.
Most recently, Kinsey's writings were behind the 2003 U.S. Supreme Court
ruling in Lawrence v. Texas that said laws against sodomy were unconstitutional,
Reisman said. And so the influence of a sado-masochist who masqueraded as
a detached and objective scientist continues to shape perceptions and attitudes
about sex, nearly fifty years after his death.
