(RoyalPatriot.com )- The university professor who was forced to resign after claiming that adults being sexually attracted to children wasn’t necessarily immoral has been hired by Johns Hopkins University to work at its center aimed at preventing child abuse.
Johns Hopkins’ Moore Center for Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse in Baltimore announced in a tweet last week that Allyn Walker, a woman who now claims to be a man, would be joining the center as a postdoctoral fellow at the end of the month.
Just six months ago, the 34-year-old Walker resigned from Old Dominion University in Virginia where she was an assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice. Walker was initially placed on administrative leave on November 16 after she argued that the term pedophile should be replaced by “minor-attracted persons” because it is less “stigmatizing.”
Walker made these remarks during a November 8 interview promoting her book “A Long Dark Shadow: Minor-Attracted People and Their Pursuit of Dignity.”
Walker, who uses the pronouns “they” and “them,” claimed that there is “no morality or immorality” attached to being attracted to children since nobody can control whom they are attracted to. While Walker conceded that child sex abuse is “never, ever okay,” she said having sexual desire for children “isn’t necessarily wrong” so long as it isn’t acted on.
When she was forced to resign from Old Dominion, the woman who identifies as a man, claimed that her research had been “mischaracterized” in part because of her “trans identity.”
No honey. People would’ve been just as upset if you didn’t identify as a man.
According to Fox News, the Moore Center’s decision to hire Walker is facing harsh criticism, especially among those who advocate for the victims of child sexual abuse.
Michael Salter, the president-elect for the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, said in a tweet that child sexual abuse prevention work must be victim-centered. He asked how is it “victim-centric” to “claim that there is nothing wrong with being sexually attracted to children?”
Salter added that much of the prevention work today is “driven by researchers and practitioners who work solely with offenders and people sexually attracted to children” and what offenders claim when talking with researchers “does not line up” with what the victims report.
