Trans professor, 34, who defended pedophiles as 'Minor Attracted Persons' RESIGNS | Daily Mail Online

The trans Old Dominion professor who defended pedophiles by saying society should refer to them as 'Minor Attracted Persons' has finally resigned after 15,000 people signed an online petition to have them removed from their teaching role.

Dr. Allyn Walker, 34, who goes by the pronouns they/them, was placed on leave by Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, last week after a swell of outrage over their remarks and views.

Working as an assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice since 2019, Walker has written a book that tries to destigmatize pedophilia and encourages people to refer to pedophiles as 'Minor Attracted People', saying they shouldn't be ostracized for their urges, which can't be helped.

In their research, Dr Walker also suggested that pedophiles should also be provided with child-like sex dolls to satisfy their urges.

Nobody likes pedophiles, or almost nobody. But if this Old Dominion professor was tenure track and forced to leave, this is bad. Their views should not be disqualifying for keeping their job, however odious they may be. But maybe they were just a contract prof and OD admins could remove them (boy this pronoun stuff is annoying) without cause. His (I give up) views on pedophilia seem pretty reasonable in fact. If you are born that way and not likely to change, then you probably should be taught ways to deal with it other than abusing kids. You should not be punished for articulating this view. OTOH maybe it's just a step in the way of normalizing the vice.

How odd that it should be a sackable offence to translate a Greek word into English - or at least American.
