For the second time in a few weeks a victim of child sexual abuse by predatory homosexual men is being hung out to dry - declared persona non grata according to the zeitgeist.
First up it was Larry Pickering's appalling remarks in which he said Islam has at least one positive element - throwing homosexual men from rooftops. I think it's an awful thing to say, but I understand Pickering's feelings better now that I know of the horrible abuse he suffered from predatory men as a child.
The more notorious case is Milo Yiannopoulos, the former Brietbart editor who endorsed the child sexual abuse he suffered from two men commencing when he was 13 as a favourable and positive experience.
I wrote him off when I heard that. A child cannot consent to sexual activity. It's always illegal, criminal and entirely without redeeming elements.
Milo's not my cup of tea (sorry!). But the savagery with which he's been pulled apart and the price he's paid for revealing the way he coped with the violation of his childhood by predatory criminals is so disproportionate that it bears discussion.
Last night I spent a little over an hour listening to Stefan Molyneux discuss the complexities and contradictions that make this topic so uncomfortable.
It was time very well spent for me.
I hope you get something out of it too.
