Fox News contributor insists he's 'not a pedophile'

As a general media rule, if you have to assure viewers that you're not a pedophile then you've already lost the debate.


But this is exactly what happened when Fox News contributor Dr. Keith Ablow appeared on Fox & Friends Tuesday to object to a baby doll that helps children learn about breastfeeding.


"It's beyond ridiculous," Ablow told Fox News' Alisyn Camerota. "It's destructive. Little girls aren't even aware how their secondary sexual characteristics will develop, let alone imitating how they'll be used after childbirth. This is another way of turning little girls into adults. It blurs the boundary between children and adults in society. It contributes to the sexualization of children and it makes them targets of assailants, frankly, because it blurs that boundary. It's a terrible, terrible idea."


"I'm going to have to respectfully disagree," parenting expert Jessica Gottlieb told Ablow. "I'm not sure that if you see a little girl as her breasts being sexual that that doesn't reflect more on you than on what breasts are."


"I assure you I'm not a pedophile at all," Ablow objected.


"Dr. Ablow, I think she raises a great point," Camerota noted. "Why is it sexual? Why isn't it just natural?"


"She doesn't raise a good point at all. How about this? How about we have little girls three and four have an OB/GYN suite where they deliver their babies? That's a good idea. That way we can further blur the boundaries so that everybody out there no longer thinks there's any particular difference between a little child and an adult woman. The fact is that little girls don't have breasts that can breastfeed," Ablow explained.


This month alone, Ablow has proclaimed that President Barack Obama pursues a "communist manifesto" and offered and psychological profile of Media Matters' David Brock.

Lol...if at anytime you have to say 'I'm not a pedophile'....

You may want to stop for a minute and think about what your saying to make it seem you are...

All three of my Daughters tired to breastfeed their dolls.. Even my son tried...Its normal and healthy and the only people who think its sexual are those who think breasts are nothing but sexual play toys for the males of the species... This man is a freak and most likely a pedophile.. Again this is Fox News and most of their "experts" FAIL big time

I would NEVER buy my children a baby doll if a bottle came with it... I'm a Lactivist. I abhor bottles.

But a doll that mimicks how *I* fed my children? I'd be all over it

Yeah, that guy sounds like an idiot.... but I kind of agree with him. I would never buy my daughter a doll that comes with a vest for her to wear with "nipples" on it so she could "breast feed" her doll. That is just weird.  That is a little too mature for a LITTLE GIRL.  If a child SEES her mom BFing and tries to copy it with her baby dolls, that is perfectly normal.... but buying your kid a doll to BF just for the hell of it.....? Um... no.
