The Virginia community, USA, was outraged by the statements of Allyn Walker, a transgender teacher who issued a speech in which he protects pedophiles for considering them “People attracted to minors”.

The Sociology and Criminal Justice assistant at the Old Dominion University was suspended from duty after explaining that these people should not be ostracized because “They cannot avoid their natural urges”.

Walker’s position was made known a few days ago during an interview with the Prostasia Foundation, a San Francisco-based child protection organization, where he presented his book A Long Dark Shadow: People Attracted to Minors and Their Search for Dignity.

According New York Post, this teacher does not agree with the use of the term “Pedophiles” and preferred to call them “People attracted to minors”, since it does not bring as much stigma.

Allyn Walker recognized that “name” to a person in relation to their sexual desires it does not say one thing or another about their morality. “From my perspective, there is no morality or immorality attached to attraction to anyone because no one can control who they are attracted to at all,” express.

“In other words, it is not what attracts us that is right or wrong. It is our behavior in responding to that attraction that is right or wrong “added.

The university was quick to respond

The Old Dominion University issued a statement last Tuesday saying that Walker was granted a compulsory license.

Reactions to Walker’s research and book raised concerns for his safety and that of the campus. In addition, the controversy over his research altered the campus and community environment and is interfering with the institution’s teaching and learning mission. “, he points out.

The president of the educational center, Brian Hemphill, also expressed his position: “I want to state in the strongest possible terms that child sexual abuse is morally wrong and has no place in our society.”.

“This is a challenging time for our university, but I am confident that we will unite and move forward.”he continued.
