Discredited Author Attacks Kinsey Again
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A few years back, we detailed how WND managing editor David Kupelian relied on the work of rabidly anti-Kinsey "researcher" Judith Reisman to attack "mad sex scientist" Alfred Kinsey, even though the Kinsey-bashing point Kupelian was pushing had been discredited.

Well, Reisman is back, and WND has her.

WND is publishing Reisman's new book, "Sexual Sabotage: How One Mad Scientist Unleashed a Plague of Corruption and Contagion on America." Guess what it's about?

Since 1948, Dr. Alfred Kinsey has been lauded as a scientific pioneer whose enlightened sexual research freed America’s repressed libido. But the so-called freedoms and new morality he “blessed” America with have proven devastating to this country’s social and moral fabric.

In "Sexual Sabotage," Dr. Judith Reisman, the preeminent Kinsey whistleblower, returns to tell the story of how the “K Bomb” was launched from a gothic limestone Indiana University building, its time-released detonation set to silently emit erototoxic radioactivity into our atmosphere – unto the generations.

During World War II and the decades that followed, Kinsey and his Indiana cohorts sabotaged our nation by entering our libraries and schools as "sex educators" – ridiculing marriage, fidelity, and chastity. They preached widespread sexual experimentation, succeeded in nationwide fraud campaigns, and gutted the tough laws that kept pornography and predators at bay.

Laying out the treacherous acts of Kinsey and Co., Dr. Reisman unveils critical new insights as to where our country went wrong, and how we can and must repudiate the soul-and-body-destroying sexual anarchy Kinsey gave us in the name of "liberation." In so doing, she says, we will reclaim the kind of noble moral character for our country – and ourselves – that is truly liberating.

"Erototoxin" is a concept of Reisman's invention, her term for the chemicals in the brain -- testosterone, oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin -- stimulated by pornography. (There is, of course, no scientific basis for this.)

In a WND article promoting Reisman book, WND editor Joseph Farah shills for it:

"Ever found yourself utterly repulsed by the latest immoral outrage – few of which are even cleverly disguised these days – and wondered, 'How on earth did America succumb to such degradation,'" asks Joseph Farah, founder and publisher of WND Books. "Judith answers that question with more alarming – and empowering – insight than anyone has yet."


"So much emphasis and energy are directed to the fight to return America to lawful, constitutional government – and rightly so,” said Farah, whose latest book, "The Tea Party Manifesto," covers such subjects. "But without understanding exactly how we traded our moral birthright for the bitter porridge of perversion, we won't realize how truly intense this fight is. And we'll fail to see that it's America's future – our most innocent and most vulnerable – who are directly targeted by the forces Judith is determined to expose."

Itseems that Reisman is promoting new dubious theories in her book as well:

Big Pharma and Big Porn – emboldened by the academic cover Kinsey's work provided – conspire in a cycle of saturating society in images of perversion, creating debased addictions that soon render men impotent, then marketing to them anti-impotency prescriptions. Mass media delivers both the disease and "the cure," as was always the intent, reports "Sexual Sabotage."

One of the things Reisman's book purports to do, besides hurling more factually dubious attacks at Kinsey, is "Why a return to pre-'50s American morality is more essential now than ever." You mean when women had few rights in marriage and gays were imprisoned merely for being gay?

That's the kind of thing that makes Reisman fit in with WND's anti-gay agenda. Somehow we suspect that she, like WND's Molotov Mitchell, endorses Uganda's proposed kill-the-gays law.
