Sexuality and the Law
How has the country gone from a “firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence” to where defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman is condemned as constitutionally irrational,and where the use of sex-separate private spaces by biological sex is subject to federal discrimination lawsuits?The answer can be traced to 1948 when Dr. Alfred C. Kinsey launched what was marketed then--and now--as the first “scientific” study of human sexuality.Indeed, Chief Judge of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, Richard Posner extols Kinsey’s study as the “high-water mark of descriptive sexology.”Influential law professors such as Columbia University’s Herbert Wechslerand Yale University’s William Eskridge have ensured that Kinsey’s world shaking reports on male and female sexuality are entrenched as authoritative scientific research in legal scholarship and mainstream cultural institutions. Yet, Judge Posner, Professors Wechsler and Eskridge and the hundreds of other scholars who have relied upon this alleged “sex science” continue to cover up the facts: Kinsey’s claims are wholly fraudulent despite having ushered in the “sexual revolution” of the 1960s and 1970s. His fame was built on lies, and the massive criminal sexual abuse of children, significantly more damaging than the cover up of child sexual abuse by the Catholic Church and graphically apparent to anyone who reads Chapter Five of his report.
