Richard Dawkins defends Pedophilia!
Richard Dawkins has gotten himself into some hot water by appearing to defend ‘soft’ or ‘mild’ pedophilia. He did this not by encouraging assault but by minimizing the effect on his own person. That is, he dismissed as insignificant, a sexual assault by a man who should have been a father figure and a protector to him. While he may be sincere, he demonstrates his ignorance in both the effect of sexual assault on children as well as on himself.
