More has been revealed in parliament about the academic faculty that provided the research that Safe Schools Coalition relied on for legitimacy and funding.
Following Minister Birmingham’s review of the program it was revealed in parliament that the Deputy Director of the Australian Research Centre for Sex Health and Society (ARCSHS) at La Trobe University, Gary Dowsett, had publicly supported paedophilia.
The Australian, (17/03/16) reported that in the 1982 article Dowsett wrote:
“We have three legal/social questions to win: custody rights for gay men and lesbians; the legal right of pedophiles and their young lovers; and, finally, the sexual rights of children as a whole. Those gains must be won for the kids, too. We need to protect the youthful partners in pedophilia against the legal and social management systems which treat them as delinquents.”
The Australian continued, "The article warned that gay activists risked a “Pyrrhic victory” if they achieved recognition of their rights “by doing in the pedophiles … The current pedophilia debate then is crucial to the political processes of the gay movement: pedophiles need our support, and we need to construct the child/adult sex issue on our terms.”
