One of Hollywood's leading men is risking his reputation with a plan to portray the "father of the sexual revolution," Alfred Kinsey, contends a chief critic of the late researcher.
The Francis Ford Coppola biographical drama, set to begin production next spring, has tapped Irish-born star Liam Neeson to bring to life a man researcher Judith Reisman calls the "most infamous pedophile propagandist in scientific history."
[What, there's not enuf perverted crap on film already?! Not enuf motivation for child molestors?!
The screenplay, with the working title "Kinsey's Report," was written by Oscar-winner Bill Condon of "Gods and Monsters" fame, who also will direct the film …
But Reisman, author of "Kinsey: Crimes & Consequences," has sent an open letter of warning to Neeson, asserting that the film will place him in "a hideously inaccurate role, much like playing the monster Mengele as a mere controversial figure."
She wrote: "Mr. Neeson, an appealing and respected actor like you surely does not wish to be known for celebrating a man who directed massive child sexual abuse."
[If he does, then so much for me watching him in any more movies!...
An assistant to Neeson's agent Ed Limato said Thursday that Reisman's letter was forwarded to the actor's "people," but they "cannot guarantee a response."
But later in the day, according to Reisman, Neeson's office requested a copy of a film produced by Britain's Yorkshire Television called "Kinsey's Paedophiles."
Reisman notes that Kinsey, who died in 1956, is praised by the North American Man-Boy Love Association for creating the "data" that support "the struggle we fight today." She finds his work as the basis for weakened laws and cultural norms that have helped foster a sharp rise in sex crimes against children, noting that 58,200 abductions by non-family members were recorded by the FBI in 1999, most of which involved sexual victimization.
In 1981, Reisman delivered a paper to the 5th World Congress on Sexuality, charging that the Kinsey Reports contained a record of human experiments conducted by pedophiles on hundreds, perhaps thousands, of children. The Kinsey study has been used to support the contention that sexual activity in children is natural and healthy and should not be repressed.
[Yeah, that's why we're all here, in the wonderful shape we're in, no baggage, no bad memories, no problems!...
*********Example, Could Be Triggering************
She points to pages 160-161 of Kinsey's 1948 book "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male," in which the children's "screams," their "convulsions," their "hysterical weeping," "fighting" and "striking the partner (adult)" are judged by Kinsey as reflecting "definite pleasure from the situation."

[If I wasn't already sick
...I am now!]
A recent interview with Neeson in the London Observer newspaper noted that the actor's best roles have been historical and eponymous figures, such as Oskar Schindler in "Schindler's List."
When the interviewer described characters Neeson has played – such as Schindler, Rob Roy and Michael Collins – as men "struggling to do the right thing, despite their predisposition, usually in the face of societal constraints," the actor replied:
"In fact, next year, I'm gonna play Alfred Kinsey, the guy who did all the research on sexuality and sexual politics in America in the '50s. His results were astounding. Really big stuff. He got on the cover of Time magazine."
Neeson said he does not set out to play real people.
"What usually motivates me is the quality of the writing," he said. "But yeah, I guess I may subconsciously seek them out. These are people who stand for something, something that is good to remind audiences of. They had a code of ethics that you perhaps don't find anymore."
[Unfortunately this jerks' "code of ethics" is written all over our society, and has stained us, the survivors of those who follow in his perpetrating perverted footsteps!]
In her letter to Neeson, Reisman warned that Yorkshire Television would want to reissue its "unflattering documentary should you make this film."
"Please disengage yourself from this unworthy production, and please feel free to contact me should you want to talk or to see the extant documentation on any and all of the statements above," Reisman wrote. "Thank you."
[Thank you, Judith Reisman! A voice of decency & reason & compassion!]
Men, feel free to share your opinions, feelings, ideas, etc about this movie.
Me, I'd like to see what could be done to not only make sure this piece of trash doesn't get shown, at least without getting trashed, but also to get "Kinsey's Pedophiles," a much more accurate British film portrayal of Kinsey & his research, a showing here in the U.S.A.!
Taz is really PO'd right now!...
