On May 5, 2018, the University of Würzburg in Germany hosted a Ted Talk on the topic “Future Societies”. Among the speakers there was also Mirjam Heine, a medical student who made a controversial speech entitled “Why our perception on pedophilia must change”.
“Pedophilia is a natural sexual orientation”
In his presentation, Heine cited some scientific research that classifies pedophilia as “an immutable sexual orientation”. As stated in the program of the event, the student is inspired by the work of a certain Dr. Klaus Beier, director of the department of sexology of the Charite, considered one of the best university hospitals in Berlin.
According to Heine, nobody is responsible for their sexual orientation and their feelings, “but everyone is responsible for their own actions regarding them”. In short, therefore, pedophiles should be accepted because they can not change their wishes. They, however, have the task of learning to control them. But the question arises: are there really pedophiles who can not give vent to their perversions?
Heine continues the discussion and tries to explain what is the difference between pedophilia and other sexual orientations. In short, the difference lies in the fact that pedophiles are not free to talk about their sexual preferences, because, if they do, a ruckus happens. According to her, therefore, we should avoid isolating them.
Then, again citing some unclear scientific research, the student states that the more a pedophile is isolated, the more likely it is that this abuse of a child. Basically, his point of view implies that on the one hand, if they abuse, it is also our fault.
“Pedophilia is not curable”, doctor Klaus Beier explained to the English newspaper. “But it can be treatable”. According to the doctor, therefore, a pedophile can learn to control his impulses. The project is based on the principle that sexual attraction towards children is indeed a medical problem but, as stated by Beier, “it is not a crime” until when it is not abused.
“Pedophilia is a reality and healthy societies must learn to accept it,” says the doctor. According to Beier, sexual perversion towards children is considered a “destiny” and not a choice. Therefore, we should accept it.
