A researcher has seemingly admitted to being a paedophile and has argued for an end to stigmatizing ‘minor-attracted persons’.
Writing in an academic journal under a pseudonym, ‘Brecht Vaerwaeter’ detailed his experience of being attracted to young boys.
He graphicly details multiple incidents of a sexual nature with children, such as bringing a 15-year-old into his tent where they sucked his finger and sneaking up on a sleeping 13-year-old while having a ‘painful’ erection.
Mr Vaerwaeter argues that paedophilia should be recognised as a legitimate sexual orientation and people like himself should be accepted by society.
The Journal of Controversial Ideas, which he published his controversial essay in, is edited by academics from Oxford University and Princeton University in the US, with an editorial board featuring dozens of prominent academics from both countries.
Mr Vaerwaeter’s 10,000 word article was originally published in April but only came to light recently after a piece by the feminist website Reduxx.
It follows scientific outrage earlier this month over another paper by a University of Manchester PhD student, who detailed how he masturbated to drawings of children
