FrumForum’s John Guardiano: Supporting Gays Means Supporting Pedophilia

"How can I come off as creepier than usual...Bingo!"

If you don’t know who John Guardiano is you can be forgiven since no one really does. It might be too kind to say he makes a living writing Left-Libertarian screeds, because frankly I assume he’s either independently wealthy or a kept man and his sad, bizarre articles are simply his way of passing the time.

Guardiano’s main claim to fame is being a David Frum toady who is trotted out to attack the right when Frum is not quite feeling froggy enough to jump on some issue but would like to stir the pot anyway. An example would be his crusade to defend “moderate Islam” from “bigotry” on the right, by which he usually means decent people objecting to the oppression of women and genocides by Islamic governments. Bigotry, according to Guardiano, usually consists of criticizing something abhorrent and taking a strong moral stance for justice, decency or common sense.

So I wasn’t surprised when Guardiano rushed to the defense of known degenerate Alex Knepper who was exposed in a recent NewsReal piece as an out of control pervert who stalked a gay teen forum and posted child pornography there. David Swindle, seeing through the mask of this sadist, should be commended for his fine work on the piece as should his co-author Jenn Q. Public. Any decent person would agree with that statement, since their investigation dragged Knepper’s predatory Internet activities targeting teens into public view.

But not John Guardiano. Ever the “contrarian,” Guardiano took to his Twitter account to make the rather novel argument that exposing adults who sexually exploit children is … homophobia.

Here’s a tweet he authored at 10:01 a.m. on October 9th that sums up his view:

1 can be perfectly tolerant and accepting of gay men and women (I am) and yet also acknowledge many have certain demons, as do we all

The “certain demons” he is speaking of here is raping children. Guardiano here is saying that “many” gays secretly molest children or want to. This is obviously false and, of course, homophobic. Gay men and lesbians are no more likely to molest children than heterosexuals are. To suggest otherwise is not just to smear gays but to excuse the exploiters of children. As I’ve pointed out before, the so-called pedophile is not oriented toward one sex or another, but geared toward dominating victims they can control. Just as “heterosexual” rapists in prison rape other men, the child molester’s sexual experience is not about the gender of the victim or their their attractiveness but the powerlessness of the victims.

But Guardiano sees the sexual exploitation of children as part of general homosexual behavior. Here’s another tweet by Guardiano a mere half hour after the first aimed at David Swindle:

@DaveSwindle By your logic, homosexuality had nothing to do with the Catholic Church’s child molestation scandals. Think again.

So Guardiano believe that homosexuals, given access to and authority over little boys, will molest children. Understand this. John Guardiano is claiming that it is not unusual for gay men to sexually exploit children.

But he supports them, and thus, their predation of children?

I know many gays and I can assure the John Guardianos of the world that, just like straights, most gays are not interested in exploiting children for sex. Homosexuals, like heterosexuals, seek out other adults for sex. As decent people age, whether they’re gay or straight, teens look younger and younger until the sight of a 19-year-old in cut offs does nothing more than furrow the brow and elicit a sad shake of the head in stark disapproval. Healthy adult sexuality means that your attraction develops over time to stay within your age range. Thus at 39 I constantly complain to my wife about the “children” smoking on the corner late at night and how I should talk to their parents at which point she informs me they’re the college kids who are subletting.

For Guardiano, however, if there were real children smoking on the corner and I lured them into my windowless van I would be well within the realm of heterosexual behavior. People have “certain demons” after all …

It’s foolishness to claim that supporting gays means accepting that many are pedophiles, but it’s more than foolish to support Alex Knepper. I frankly doubt he’s even really gay; instead he’s simply a misogynist who seeks degrading and humiliating sex (on the gay teen forum he frequents he talks about his diaper fetish!), no doubt because he has issues with his own sexuality. But even before this exposé it was clear that Knepper had wildly inappropriate views of sex and especially sex crimes. For Knepper, violence, domination and degradation are an essential part of sex and most of his writings touch on this theme in some way. Guardiano describes those sado-masochistic Knepperisms thusly:

All of @alexknepper’s @FrumForum posts are legit and praiseworthy pieces that made (make) a real contribution to the public dialogue

Is that right? Here’s a comment Knepper left on one of his own Frum Forum pieces about how awesome his piece claiming women who are date raped had it coming was:

No way. Rape is a sex crime. Power cannot be divorced from sexuality — and domination can be an incredibly erotic act. This is where people will usually bring up the fact that some freak cases happen where eighty-year-olds are raped — but it’s not an accident that 16-19-year-olds are the most-commonly-raped subset of women. It’s the unwillingness to surrender on the part of the woman being raped that makes the crime so appalling — as you put it: it’s the lack of agency.

Here Knepper claims it is the unwillingness of women to submit to their rapists that makes rape so appalling – not the actions of the rapist. That really does add to the discourse. I guess he was also adding to the discourse when he claimed sex offenders were the new Blacks, rape victims were “debasing” the term survivor by using it to reference themselves, and of course he was really furthering the public dialogue when he wrote, “It’s not clear enough to merely speak of consent, because the lines of consent in sex — especially anonymous sex — can become very blurry” when talking about date rape.

That it troubles me to that an adult lurking on a teen forum also spends his time producing pro-rape agi-prop makes me a bigot to Guardiano. But if Guardiano thinks gays are, in a general sense, given to exploitative, predatory and illegal behavior more so than others, what kind of person does it make him that he supports them?

Obviously John Guardiano doesn’t support gays. What he supports is sexual degeneracy and I leave it to readers to come to their own conclusions as to why. But one cannot support gay rights by promoting the theory that “many” gays will indeed molest your children if given the chance, and Guardiano is just smart enough to understand that. So what’s his real agenda?

    I’m speechless… I’ll have to come back when my brain catches up with the stupidity that is is John Guardiano. All I can do right now is shake my head in disbelief.

  4. DodiaFae on October 13th, 2010 3:59 pm

    OK… I’ve read his piece and I’ve come to the conclusion that Guardiano is a fucktard, and Alex Knepper is still a pervert. I could probably have posted this in a discussion all it’s own, but I thought that pointing out some of the logical errors in Guardiano’s argument might do him some good… and he’s more likely to see it here than on PACA. Also, I can’t call him a fucktard on PACA… my own rule, I know, but there ya go.

    Of course the Catholic League (Rally? The Catholic League and Bill Donohue? ::eyeroll:: You do know that there’s a reason it’s called an “opinion piece”, don’t you, Guardiano?) is going to claim that there is a connection between homosexuality and pedophilia… The Catholic Church is anti-homosexual (at least in writing… they’re also anti-pedophilia in writing, but, well, need I say more?)

    So is he trying to ASSert that there is a connection between homosexuality and pedophilia, but that there is no connection between heterosexuality and pedophilia? So all those grown men who like to molest and rape little girls are really homosexual? I’m fighting the urge to ask “is he really that stupid?” because the answer is painfully obvious. If I knew him, I’d feel embarrassed for him. However, I don’t know him, so I’ll just virtually point and laugh, like I do with every other fucktarded person who tries to pretend they know what the hell they’re talking about when attempting to imagine such a link into existence.

    Do I also need to point out the obvious? OK, if I must…
    Statistically, 1 in 3 girls are sexually abused by their 18th birthday, while 1 in 6 boys is sexually abused by their 18th birthday. Statistically the vast majority of child predators are male, so what does that tell you? It tells me that you’re an idiot who didn’t bother to research the material before putting your “opinion piece” out there on the net for the world to see.

    What about all those married men, many of whom have children of their own, who have molested boys? They weren’t gay. They were sadists.

    Pedophiles will go after any job, get involved with any organization, do any volunteer work that will put them in direct contact with children. It stands to reason that a very large number of pedophiles would get involved with an organization like the Catholic Church… especially males who wish to have direct contact with male potential victims.

    I mean, look at this… he quotes

    “Nearly a third of all cases of child sexual abuse are homosexual in nature (that is, they involve men molesting boys),” reports the Family Research Council.

    Yes, but more than two thirds of all child sexual abuse cases are not homosexual in nature. So to use that less-than-a-third to draw some sort of correlation between homosexuality and pedophilia is just. plain. stupid.

    He then goes on to say

    By the same token, however, we cannot deny the fact that there is a greater incidence of homosexual child molestation.

    [italics mine] Um… yes we can, and we’d be right to do so. One third is not a greater incidence. I’m guessing he failed basic math? Hell, math wasn’t really my strong suit, but even I understand that 1/3 is less than 2/3.

    He then goes on to spew:

    Leaps of Logic. Some analysts like Justin Sanchez purport to have debunked this evidence. Sanchez claims
    research shows that men who molest young boys overwhelmingly either have no sexual interest in adults, or are heterosexual in their adult orientation. So consistent is this finding that one group of researchers posited that ‘homosexuality and homosexual pedophilia may be mutually exclusive.’

    But if this were true — if the sex of the victim really didn’t matter because the child molesters were equal opportunity abusers — then you would expect to see more many more female victims of child abuse than we’ve seen thus far.

    Or,, perhaps within the Catholic Church, the majority of victims were male because they did not allow girls to become “alter boys” back in the day. But, if you take all reported cases of child sexual abuse, there are actually twice as many girls who are violated than there are boys.

    Guardiano, may I suggest that you get your facts from a reputable source, such as the National Association for Missing and Exploited Children? If you’re using only the Catholic Church abuse scandals as a reference point, then yes, the male Catholic priests would have had more access to male victims than to female victims… what with all that access to the male alter boys, and that girls’ homes were typically run by the nuns. But if you’re using it because you think it makes your idiotic point any better, please keep in mind that, as vast as the number of Catholic Church abuse cases were, they are by no means the majority of all child sexual abuse cases. So your point is not only idiotic and not very well researched, but it’s also moot in the grand scheme of things.

    Contrary to what some people claim, not all publicity is good publicity. When someone posts opinion pieces with no basis in reality, it just makes them look like idiots. Very few people are able to take an idiot seriously. Could it be that is why so few people have heard of Guardiano, few of those that have bother to talk about him, and those that do have nothing good to say about him?

    Rob, sorry for the long post… reading his drivel sent me off on a tangent.

    No problem I know what you mean. I am going to respond but I don’t even know where to start.
