Regular people get the problem of pedphilia
Balenciaga apologizes amid outcry over ad campaign featuring sexualized children
The National Catholic Register points out how the people rose up against an ad campaign centering on the sexualizing of young children.
The images went viral on social media, provoking public outrage over other disturbing elements in the photographic ad series. The Spanish-based fashion brand has since removed all traces of the ad campaign and deleted or hidden all of its Instagram posts.
Top luxury fashion brand Balenciaga has issued an apology after outcry over the company’s recent ad campaign featuring young children surrounded by sexualized symbols.
In the ad, young children — appearing to be no older than 6 years old — hold stuffed teddy bears that are dressed in leather bondage gear, including fishnet tights and chains used in BDSM (bondage, discipline/dominance, submission, and sadomasochism).

The images went viral on social media, provoking public outrage over other disturbing elements in the photographic ad series, including court documents in one photo that reference child abuse and pornography.
“The ads blatantly exploit the innocence of children to glamorize perversity and sell merchandise,” Mary Rice Hasson, director of the Person and Identity Project for the Ethics and Public Policy Center, told CNA.
Balenciaga has since removed all traces of the ad campaign and deleted or hidden all of its Instagram posts.
Kim Kardashian, a frequent partner with the Spanish-based designer and wearer of its products, said Sunday she was “reevaluating” her relationship with the brand.
“As a mother of four, I have been shaken by the disturbing images,” Kardashian tweeted. “The safety of children must be held with the highest regard and any attempts to normalize child abuse of any kind should have no place in our society — period.”
Kardashian said she would base her assessment on the company’s “willingness to accept accountability for something that should have never happened to begin with” and “the actions I am expecting to see them take to protect children.”
The company issued an apology on Instagram shortly after Kardashian’s reproof, stating it “strongly condemn[ed] child abuse” and that the “BDSM-inspired outfits” “should not have been featured in a photoshoot with children.”
“It was never our intent to include it in our narrative,” the post read. “We could have done things differently.”
The post blamed third-party entities for providing court documents of a real Supreme Court ruling on child pornography for the photoshoot.

Standing up for the helpless, feeding the destitute, and protecting the powerless remain in our callings as Christians
This absurd display of debauchery has no place in our society. Objectifying those who have no control, no standard for building a self-defense, and no strength in comparison to adults stands as a monstrous evil.
However, it seems that Democrat politicians cannot get it
Thousands of pedophiles in California getting less than a year in jail
The United Kingdom’s Daily Mail reports that the land of Gavin Newsom will release thousands of convicted pedophiles (a condition that purportedly cannot be rehabilitated) onto the streets.
Pedophiles are getting less than a year prison time after a range of horrific acts, including raping kids under 14, a DailyMail.com investigation reveals.
Analysis of a California database of sex offenders shows thousands of child molesters are being let out after just a few months, despite sentencing guidelines.
Current and former sex crime prosecutors said the figures are ‘terrifying’ and ‘shameful’.
More than 7,000 sex offenders were convicted of ‘lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age’ but were let out of prison the same year they were incarcerated, data from the California Megan’s Law database says.
Others who committed some of the worst child sex crimes on the statute books served similarly short sentences, including 365 pedophiles convicted of continuous sexual abuse of a child who spent less than 12 months in prison, 39 cases of sodomy with a child under 16, and three cases of kidnapping a child under 14 ‘with intent to commit lewd or lascivious acts’, according to the data.
Former Los Angeles sex crimes prosecutor Samuel Dordulian told DailyMail.com he was ‘shocked’ by the statistics and described them as ‘frightening for society’.
‘Statistics clearly show that pedophiles don’t get reformed. They’re going to come out and they’re going to commit again,’ Dordulian said.
‘Letting these people out early, we’re allowing for a lot more victimization. And that’s terrifying.’
It is unclear whether the Megan’s Law database prison time statistics are similar for other states, as DailyMail.com was only able to obtain detailed sex offender data for California.

When will people stop voting Democrat? They will stop when it begins to hurt them.
When the murder rate, the sexualization of children, and other factors rise to a level intolerable, then people will vote at a level that even ballot harvesters will not be able to overcome.
However, it seems that Democrats will push their most extreme agendas until them.

Excellent treatise on a topic that just doesn’t get covered much these days. These folks are absolutely sick in the head. Why there isn’t more of a push to get all of these people the “help” they deserve is beyond me! Think of the damage that is being done to this generation of kids because some weirdo needs to get off on them! Disgusting!

As many times as I have heard that a pedophile cannot completely be rehabilitated, surely putting the pedophile out on the streets also has negative consequences for the pedophile.
That is to say, although their hearts may harden with repeated offenses, surely there must be some guilt.

One would only hope that’s the case!
