As much as I love this Brave New World and the idea that technology is advancing each and every day and that one day in the future we may all have our own little robot companions I can’t get behind the idea that using child sex robots to treat pedophiles like methadone is used to treat heroin addicts is a good idea.

A representative for the city of Elgin, in North Illinois is now facing federal child pornography charges after using a fake email to distribute and trade child pornography on both his personal and office computers. More
The recent accusations against Gore Vidal about alleged pedophilia have made reminded me that anyone can be a predator, even people we respect. More
Toward the very end of my pregnancy, I was searching one of those “see how many predators live near you” sites, and Jacob’s picture popped up. I thought I was going to throw up. The idea that I had slept with a sex offender just made me feel ill. Still, I thought to myself, at least I didn’t breed with him.
After my daughter was born, the guy I was seeing demanded a paternity test. Okay, whatever I thought. I took it. More
Back in May, John Eastman of Waterbury Connecticut devised aÂ disturbing strategy for picking up on teenage and preteen girls by tapping into the heartthrob status ofÂ Harry StylesÂ online.Â Full blown moron and Florida residentÂ Jordan Wagner developed a similar approach. Of course, Wagner’s imitation leaves plenty to be desired, and might just be the most idiotic thing I’ve seen a pedophile do. Let’s just say it involves the ugliest Justin Bieber wig ever made. More
Someone taught these little kids so well and I hope their parents are all so proud of them and proud of themselves for raising kids with the knowledge of what to do if anything horrible and creepy happens to them or one of their friends More
It should come as no surprise that Rush Limbaugh said something disgusting and repulsive on his radio show yesterday. We’re all pretty used to this blathering bunch of vocal cords making highly offensive remarks to attract attention. On a normal basis, I advocate ignoring his noxious gas. But every once in a while, he says something so despicable that I feel like we need to address it. More
This is utterly insane. John McGirr — a firefighter from Sydney, Australia — says he was forced to move out of his seat on a Virgin Airlines flight because his row mates were two young boys. He says the incident left him “angry, embarrassed and acutely aware of how society has become fearful of everyone.” Here’s what happened. More
The trial of Jerry Sandusky has been filled with drama and tense emotional moments. The abuse experienced by these victims was deplorable, but had already been widely reported before the trial itself began. The testimonies were gut-wrenching, but they didn’t bring forward a wealth of new information. However, it looks like the criminal case will end with quite a surprise.
One more victim of Sandusky has stepped forward. That brave man is Sandusky’s son, Matt Sandusky. More
I can admit that I was prepared for a little internet blowback from appearing on Good Morning America to talk about allowing my daughter to wear make-up. I understood that agreeing to the interview meant opening myself up to other people’s opinions and observations. But I did not expect commenters saying,Â ”This is one reason why pedophiles exist.”
A few months ago I noted that one of the weirdest things about modern parenting is the demise of the naked baby picture. When I was a kid, they were all around. Not just of my siblings and me, but I recall seeing pics of babies and little kids — buck naked — running around or in bathtubs. They were found in baby books and photo albums in several houses. I know that all of my friends in high school had old pictures of their nekkidity.
And it was no big deal.
So why did I freak out when my husband almost posted pictures of our girls in a bathtub recently? More
Former child star Corey Feldman opened up about the widespread sexual abuse of children in Hollywood on Nightline. Feldman said that “the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia.” He also spoke about his friend and co-star’s Corey Haim‘s suicide, citing the cause as sexual abuse by a “Hollywood mogul” who he could not name.

The car company Kia had some very questionable ads surface in France after they were awarded the Silver Lion award at the Cannes ad festival. In an effort to convey the two “degrees” of Kia cars, the advertising company Moma depicts both a PG storyline along side an adult interpretation. The company has since denied that they had any knowledge of the ads and that they have no intention of running them in the United States. But their statement to the press suggests that it is somehow acceptable to run them in other countries. More
