Is Alfred Kinsey's research to be taken seriously? Although he was a professor of entomology (insects), he founded the Institute for Sex Research at Indiana University in 1947 (now known as the Kinsey Institute) based on his findings in the Kinsey Reports.
The Kinsey Reports are two books on human sexual behavior: Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953).
Pages 160 - 161 of his book Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, Kinsey describes 196 children under age 13 who screamed, wept "hysterically," fought the "partner" (their adult rapist) but all of whom really "enjoyed the experience." (SOURCE: pages 160-161. Table 34 from the same book reveals children ages 5 months to 14 years were experimented on (SOURCE: table 34.) Some of Kinsey's data was derived from sexual experiments performed on children by Dr. von Balluseck, a Nazi collaborator in Germany. (SOURCE: Nazi Pedophile, Sanity and Social Justice) These experiments were performed to ‘prove' that children enjoyed sex and the real harm of adult-child sex stemmed from "hysterical" parents.
Kinsey also was deceitful in reporting on adult sexual practices. He surveyed 1,400 male sex offenders, 200 sexual psychopaths and hundreds of radical male homosexuals and reported their sexual inclination as common and normal. In order to find "normal" American married women, Kinsey redefined "married" to include any woman who said she lived more than a year with a man, to disprove women's claims of valuing their chastity and disavowing adultery. (SOURCE: http://www.againstsexualabuse.org/docs/ImplicationsOfKinseyReports.asp)
The initiative of Alfred Kinsey to perform these studies was to justify his own bizarre and harmful behavior: self-circumcision with a razor blade, penile penetration with a toothbrush, videotaped orgies with wife, co-workers and friends (http://www.glapn.org/sodomylaws/world/united_kingdom/uknews083.htm).
Alfred Kinsey is the father of the sexual revolution and is taken seriously by many, including fellow Cafemomers (source: http://www.cafemom.com/answers/891524/The_Kinsey_scale, http://www.cafemom.com/answers/899705/Am_I_bisexual_if?cat_id=&order=votes&next=11 (pg 2), http://www.cafemom.com/group/266/forums/read/14357140/Gay_people_do_not_choose_to_be_gay_they_just_are?next=11#replies (pg 2 & 3), http://thestir.cafemom.com/love_sex/100772/sex_ed_historic_home_porn, http://thestir.cafemom.com/love_sex/122261/why_women_dont_think_about). (I could site more, but you can search the word "Kinsey" in the Search Cafemom box, or Google "Kinsey" to see what I mean.)
But honestly, even if one has never heard the name Kinsey before, one who believes it's normal for teenagers to experiment with sex, or normal to have more than one sexual partner, or that those with same-sex attraction need to be "true" to themselves by engaging in same-sex activity is a believer and follower of Kinsey. Our current American culture is saturated in Kinsey's unhealthy hypotheses.
My question is, do you judge his work as real science? Or misleading and abusive?Answer Question
