This headline is decades late, but better late than never: “Indiana lawmakers back defunding Kinsey sex institute.” On February 22, the Indiana House voted 53-54 to bar Indiana University, home of the Kinsey Institute, from using any state government money for its sexual research. The Associated Press ludicrously claimed that this vote came as a result of “a far-right legislator” who “unleashed disputed allegations of child exploitation by its founder and famed mid-20th century researcher Alfred Kinsey.
Indeed, Democratic lawmaker Matt Pierce stated that these allegations were “based on old unproven allegations of conspiracies that did not exist” and calling them “warmed-over internet memes that keep coming back,” insisting that the Kinsey Institute’s noble mission was to “better understand human sexuality, including how to treat and prevent sexual predators and pedophiles.” The Associated Press chalked up GOP opposition to funding for the Kinsey Institute because they “blame [it] for contributing to liberalized sexual morals, including more acceptance of homosexuality and pornography.”
Pierce, apparently, has not bothered to read Kinsey’s own works, Sexuality in the Human Male and Sexuality in the Human Female, which were published in 1948 and 1953. Kinsey’s work “revealed” that between 30-45% of men had affairs, 85% of men had had sex prior to marriage, that a staggering 70% of men had slept with prostitutes, and that between 10 and 37% of men had engaged in homosexual behavior. Much less talked about were his other disturbing “findings”—an in-depth study on the “sexual behavior” of children, as well as claims that nearly 10% of men had performed sex acts with animals (as well as 3.6% of women), and that this number rose to between 40-50% based on proximity to farms.
The integrity of much of his work has long since been called into question. Among his questionable practices, Kinsey encouraged those he was working with to engage in all types of sexual activity as a form of research, misrepresented single people as married, and hugely overrepresented incarcerated sex criminals and prostitutes in his data. And where did he get all of his data on the “sexual behavior of children”? The answer is nothing short of chilling. Dr. Judith Reisman (whose research has since been confirmed time and time again) explained in her ground-breaking work Sex, Lies and Kinsey that Kinsey facilitated brutal sexual abuse to get his so-called research:
Kinsey solicited and encouraged pedophiles, at home and abroad, to sexually violate from 317 to 2,035 infants and children for his alleged data on normal “child sexuality.” Many of the crimes against children (oral and anal sodomy, genital intercourse and manual abuse) committed for Kinsey’s research are quantified in his own graphs and charts.
For example, “Table 34” on page 180 of Kinsey’s “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male” claims to be a “scientific” record of “multiple orgasm in pre-adolescent males.” Here, infants as young as five months were timed with a stopwatch for “orgasm” by Kinsey’s “technically trained” aides, with one four-year-old tested 24 consecutive hours for an alleged 26 “orgasms.” Sex educators, pedophiles and their advocates commonly quote these child “data” to prove children’s need for homosexual, heterosexual and bisexual satisfaction via “safe-sex” education. These data are also regularly used to “prove” children are sexual from birth.
