UMich Presentation Appears To ‘Dignify And Redeem’ Sex Between Men And Boys
[Image: 2h86dm1.jpg]

Academia getting sicker every day.

Quote:A presentation at the University of Michigan will deal with the subject of pederasty, or sex between men and boys, with the professor giving the speech apparently hoping to “dignify and redeem” what he calls “intergenerational modern pederastic relationships.”

The workshop, scheduled for today and titled “Pederastic Kinship: Deidealizing Queer Studies,” will be presented by Kadji Amin, assistant professor of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Emory University, according to an event listing on the University of Michigan’s website.

Hosted by the university’s Doing Queer Studies Now “interdisciplinary workshop,” it will explore the “kinship form” of “modern pederasty.”

“To identify a relational form as ‘queer kinship’ is to implicitly dignify and redeem it,” the event listing reads. “What are the limits of such redemption? This talk tests the boundaries of the discourse of queer family by investigating a sexually, ethically, and politically dubious kinship form: namely, modern pederasty.”

Amin did not return two emails from The College Fix seeking clarification on his presentation. Deboleena Roy, chair of Emory’s Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Department, similarly did not return a request for comment; nor did Emory spokeswoman Megan McRainey.

Glbtq.com, billed as “the world’s largest encyclopedia of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer culture,” defines pederasty as an “erotic relationship between an adult male and a boy, generally one between the ages of twelve and seventeen.” It does not list a definition of pedophilia.

Merriam-Webster’s medical dictionary defines pederasty as “anal intercourse especially with a boy as the passive partner.” It defines pedophilia as “sexual perversion in which children are the preferred sexual object.”

The description for Amin’s guest lecture notes that “pederastic kinship is a forgotten and uncomfortable precursor to gay and lesbian ‘chosen’ and nuclear family that restores power and inequality to overly idealized imaginaries of queer kinship.”

So, the presentation was not given yet at the time of the article, and neither the presenter nor Emory provided any further information on it, but you know it dignifies and redeems pederasty?

Okay.

Okay.

Your emotions make it seem that this is something deeply personal to you. In any case, attempting to legitimize this is sick.

None of the above are actually words.

Unfortunately, right now, Democrats are desperate for votes. They'll take them wherever they can get them.

I'm for free speech, but how in the world can a "presentation" like that be legal? I would think the presenter is a pedophile or knows people who are and defends/conceals their disgusting practice.

It's not. I didn't. Just another failed lame personal attack from you. Do better.

I think this is likely being given for the benefit of students in the medical profession who would be tasked with dealing with such behavior in people.

We can wish it away all we like, but it does exist and needs to be dealt with, right?

So, we should not ever talk about or try to educate people to deal with the types of behaviors, no matter how disgusting, in our fellow man? Really?

Here is the original link for the lecture.

https://irwg.umich.edu/events/kadji-amin...er-studies

When I read the overview, I don't think it was trying to legitimize pederasty - although the jargon words could be obscuring the true intention of the lecture.

Quote:To identify a relational form as “queer kinship” is to implicitly dignify and redeem it. What are the limits of such redemption? This talk tests the boundaries of the discourse of queer family by investigating a sexually, ethically, and politically dubious kinship form: namely, modern pederasty. Pederastic kinship names the kinship function of many intergenerational modern pederastic relationships. Its shape is discernable within French author and activist Jean Genet’s (1910-1986) life practices of affiliation, including his habit of introducing himself into the domesticities of heterosexual couples, his practice of financing the heterosexual households of his younger male lovers, and his fantasy of himself as the adopted foundling of the Black Panther Party. Pederastic kinship is a forgotten and uncomfortable precursor to gay and lesbian “chosen” and nuclear family that restores power and inequality to overly idealized imaginaries of queer kinship.

When I read this, it appears to me that the professor is NOT condoning pederasty. JMHO.

Okay.

Okay indeed.

Okay indeed.

You didn't read that in context! That comment is talking about French author and activist Jean Genet's views.

And I think you're reaching and know it. Why? Is it that difficult for you to simply agree that there's something majorly wrong with a workshop like this?
