Connecticut May Grant Pedophiles Protected Status


from Moonbattery:

As George Orwell put it, all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others. Most equal of all are those who enjoy the special protection of the Democratic Party. Their position in society relative to the rest of us is comparable to that of Muslims as opposed to dhimmis under Islamic rule. Among those who enjoy this special privilege are blacks, homosexuals, transsexuals, and now pedophiles:


On May 9, the Connecticut House of Representatives passed a bill that would effectively expand the definition of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation to include “discrimination” against so-called “minor-attracted persons.”

“Minor-attracted persons” (or MAPs) is the euphemism liberals want us to use to help them normalize sex criminals who prey on children.

H.B. 6638, also known as “An Act Revising the State’s Antidiscrimination Statutes,” passed by a landslide margin of 132-17, with two members absent from the vote.

Even most Republicans voted for this obscene bill, if you can call any politician in Connecticut a Republican.

The state’s House Democratic caucus described the bill as seeking to “modernize and improve consistency in” the state’s “discrimination statutes.” The Connecticut American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which supports the bill, used similar language, stating that “it modernizes the existing definition of sexual orientation, moving away from thirty-year-old outdated and offensive terminology.”

We don’t want to use terminology that would offend pedophiles. That could get us canceled.

Family Institute of Connecticut analyzes the bill:

The new definition (as amended) of “sexual orientation” changes in 2 big ways. It becomes untethered from “heterosexuality, homosexuality or bisexuality” and instead ties to “identity”. Second, it now includes identities whose underlying behavior would be a sex crime. …

Even people with sexual attractions like pedophilia and nepiophilia would be protected from discrimination.

The logic applied to make homosexuals a protected group can be applied to any perversion and any crime. The liberal trick is to conflate behavior they like with innate identity, and disapproval of that behavior with “intolerance.” According to woke doctrine, gays are not gay because they have gay sex; they have gay sex because they are gay. They were born that way, and have no influence over their own behavior. Therefore, if you do not approve of gay sex, you hate innocent victims of fate. Those who are victimized by hate must be granted special protection from the government to ensure they are first hired, last fired, immune from criticism, et cetera.
