Alfred Kinsey may have been a child molestor that gave life long problems to innocent little children.

No wonder the world is suffering. Because of people like him.

Some are beginning to look up on the records..

and are blowing the whistle.

Kinsey's reports were full of crap too.

Even though Kinsey included data from some very unsavory people in his studies, I'm still grateful that he opened a space to be more honest about the range of sexualities people have.

I just did a simple Google search of Alfred Kinsey sexual abuse and it seemed to me like the people making these allegations are all very biased right wing fundamentalist Christians. I think these people have a lot to gain from discrediting Kinsey so i don't know if i believe there claims. i would like more evidence done by real journalists that are not biased before i would believe what is being said.
But if there is truth to what they are saying i think that is very alarming.

It would seem there's the possibility of some questionable associations Kinsey had, but can it be proved at this point? I agree with theatrekid that it would be good for some responsible journalism to take place on this subject. People with an agenda, no matter what that agenda may be are usually suspect.

True, but if its only being discovered at this point, as Kennedy assumes, then it might be more widely known in time.

Kinsey was a pioneer but a guy in a lot of personal pain at the same time. That much seems clear. And even in his own time the wolves were after him for daring to say that our sexuality is a normal and healthy part of our being.

I'll reserve judgment until I see real research by responsible people without an anti-Kinsey agenda. I am reminded of the incredibly irresponsible claims by some right-wing fundamentalist groups to the effect that condoms don't prevent the spread of AIDS because the virus is so small it can penetrate the fabric of the condom. Apart from the fact this is untrue, their real agenda was abstinence but could cause many naive people to just forget about the need to practice safe sex.

Much love,
Larry

Judith Reisman did her own study on Kinsey and his "research." She found him and his "assistants" to be child molesters. She has produced a video called "The Children of Table 34" which speaks to this topic. Very revealing.

"I'll reserve judgment until I see real research by responsible people without an anti-Kinsey agenda."

Larry, I don't know if Judith Reisman falls into that category, but wouldn't this video production be anti-Kinsey by default, even if it stood by itself?

Judith Reisman has some...interesting perspectives.

http://www.alternet.org/election04/20744/

Quote:
While winning friends among the Christian right, Reisman was also seeking to influence people on Capitol Hill in her push for an investigation into whether Kinsey had sexually abused children during his research. She presented this accusation in her essay, “Kinsey and The Homosexual Revolution." As Poppy Dixon wrote of the essay, "The bulk of [Reisman's] tirade is comprised of 31 complex and leading questions designed to prejudice the reader." Indeed, Reisman does not offer any conclusive answer to her question, "What if [Kinsey's work] reflects unethical scientists committing unprosecuted criminal acts?" or anything else she asks. She simply posits Kinsey's alleged criminality as a "possibility," one which none of Kinsey's four biographers have found any evidence to entertain.


Gotta love that essay title, though.
