Jackie Hill Perry, who shares her journey from lesbian to Christian poet, writer, and hip-hop artist in her book “Gay Girl Good God,” recently retweeted a TED Talk speaker who normalizes pedophilia.

Perry’s thread started Tuesday when she posted a tweet by Ian Miles Cheong, who wrote, “This is apparently mainstream now. Hosted by TED Talks.” He then pulled out a quote from a presenter. “Pedophilia is an unchangeable sexual orientation.”

The tweet included a link to a May 2018 presentation by Mirjam Heine, a medical student at University of Würzburg in Germany.

Perry’s retweet simply said:

“‘We should accept that pedophilia is a sexual preference that people do not choose.’  I knew this was coming…”

Perry’s tweet comes the same month as the release of a startling new report from the United Kingdom recommending pedophiles should be diverted to “workshops” instead of facing prosecution for viewing child pornography, according to LifeSiteNews.

According to that report, the “deferred prosecution” program would be “just as effective as a post-conviction sentence, if not more, without the need to use court and prosecution resources.”

Meanwhile, in her TED Talk, Heine likened pedophilia to heterosexuality.

“According to current research pedophilia is an unchangeable sexual orientation just like for example heterosexuality,” she said. “No one chooses to be a pedophile. No one can cease being one. The difference between pedophilia and other sexual orientations is that living out this sexual orientation will end in a disaster.”

She then focused on the issue of feelings, encouraging her audience to change how they feel about pedophiles.

“Right now most of us feel discomfort when we think about the scenario and most of us feel discomfort when we think about pedophiles,” she continued. “But just like pedophiles, we are not responsible for our feelings. We do not choose them. But we are responsible for our actions and we must make a decision. It is in our responsibility to reflect and to overcome our negative feelings about pedophiles and to treat them with the same respect we treat other people with.
