Croatia, sex education and Dr. Judith Reisman
Quote:Croatia: Sex On The Brain, Freedom Of Expression In The Drain

While the recently introduced sex education in Croatian schools (about which I have written before) has attracted loud – intermittently laced with profound despair – controversies in community at large, distress and disappointment in many community and parent groups claiming there had not been adequate public discussion or consultation on the issue, serious rows and rifts between the Church and the State, the swift axing of “Picture of Croatia” TV show and hence punishing its head journalist Karolina Vidovic-Kristo for including extracts from “Kinsey Syndrome” in her coverage of the then proposed sex education program in schools, what has occurred in Croatia during the past week is nothing short of an alarmingly ugly face of a democracy and freedom of access to information.

Certainly, there’s a strong stench of intolerance for and lack of acknowledgment of diversity in opinion and thinking blowing from the current Social Democrats led government in Croatia. One might say quite similar to the climate that pervaded communist Yugoslavia. It is alarming to even contemplate that a governing party representative in a democratic country would go so far as to verbalise publicly that expressions of different thinking should be banned, and suffer no consequences, no reprimand from the government. That’s what has happened in Croatia the last few days and it is truly no wonder that people at large are calling the current government Communists, with connotations that lead one to conclude that democratic civil freedoms in Croatia are suffering significant setbacks.

The metastases of the government’s apparent intolerance of differing opinions surfaced this week like never before; orchestrated and often uncivilised attacks on views and work of Dr. Judith Reisman, an American cultural conservative writer best known for her criticism and condemnation of the work and legacy of Alfred Kinsey who believes sex researcher Alfred Kinsey is responsible for much of the cultural decay and sexual permissiveness that she sees; that affect today’s societies.

On Tuesday 29 January freedom of speech, media freedom got suspended in Croatia and so did the respect of fundamental principles of journalism, writes Marko Juric of Dnevno.hr.

“On that day the leading Croatian media outlet, HTV, reported about Dr. Judith Reisman’s lecture at the Faculty of Political Sciences in Zagreb, in a manner that was ‘extremely shameful and completely akin to manners found in the far away times of Fascism or Bolshevism of one-party totalitarian system’. All that the public could hear or see from this HTV coverage was what the staunch and aggressive, at times shockingly rude and utterly uncivilised opponents of Dr. Reisman’s views had to say. The pinnacle of such intolerance was when the Faculty’s Dean, Nenad Zakosec, came out and aggressively, shouted at Reisman before hundreds of students (many of which had shouted insults and barraged bigoted questions/comments): ‘what are you doing here!‘”

It is no wonder that Reisman said later that she had never before in her life been confronted by so many bullies as during this visit to Croatia.
Then, her debate at the Faculty of Philosophy with the head of sexology there, Aleksandar Stulhofer, was cancelled on 30 January due to the big crowd turning up!

Stulhofer was one of the authors of the new sex education program in schools recently introduced in Croatia. One wonders whether the event organisers thought of “real fire” safety measure when they cancelled it, or whether they feared a new “fire against the government sex education program” would erupt. In view of everything that has transpired on sex education in schools in Croatia and the government’s stubbornness to go ahead with its plan regardless of the community disquiet about it, the latter would be a safer bet as to why the event at the Faculty of Philosophy was cancelled.

Then Reisman was supposed to attend the screening of documentary film director Timothy Tate’s film “Kinsey’s Paedophiles, secret history“, but, wouldn’t you know it – the screening fell through – cancelled despite enormous public interest. Technical difficulties were afoot – three times over!

Of course, the coalition government’s members of parliament have come out “screaming blue murder” at the parliamentary opposition’s (Croatian Democratic Union/HDZ) invitation to Reisman to give a lecture in the Croatian Parliament building – for the HDZ Parliamentary Club. Even though HDZ or any other parliamentary party has an absolute right under the Constitution to invite anyone they want to, to talk in their premises, the governing coalition is abhorred at the fact that someone who has a different view to theirs as to sex education and various influences on sexuality of children should be allowed to set foot in the parliament building! To quote governing Social Democrats; Tatjana Simac Bonacic: “… it is inappropriate for that (Reisman’s talk) to occur in Parliament, because the Parliament is a home, a symbol of democracy and as such it is certainly not for people like that (like Reisman)” ! (HRT News, 29 January 2013).

On the other hand, HDZ representatives including its President Tomislav Karamarko and Zeljko Reiner – deputy president HDZ parliamentary group, fan the view that in a democracy all views on the issue have the right of expression and should be heard and that if Reisman was good enough to talk in US Congress, she is good enough to talk in the Croatian Parliament building.

Indeed, it seems that in these crazy times HDZ/Croatian Democratic Union is one of the rare political parties in Croatia who see freedom of expression for what it truly is: freedom to express ones ideas and freedom to offer information on pertinent social, or other issues, leaving it to the individual to accept or reject the ideas, or even remain undecided.

So, is the orchestrated attack and intolerance expressed so widely in Croatia towards Judith Reisman really an objective and justified attack on her belief’s and work as unacceptable to today’s society, or did we just see a perfect example of intolerance and decay of democracy in Croatia fueled by the governing coalition’s attempts to censure and even oppress ideas that normally float freely in the democratically developed world?

In summary and regarding Reisman, the 2004 Bill Condon’s movie, “Kinsey”, may have reawakened America’s interest in the largely forgotten but influential post-War era sex researcher Dr. Alfred Kinsey, but for Judith Reisman, he has been a singular dedication, which some have labelled as obsession, for decades. Reisman has given herself the task to fight against Kinsey, to focus on morality via existential battles with the forces of cultural decay and sexual permissiveness. While her ideas have naturally endeared her to a Who’s Who of conservative political echelons and many survivalists, she has had in 2004 provided expert testimony on Capitol Hill (Washington DC) for Republican Sen. Sam Brownback on the scientific perils of pornography. There, she also lobbied for the reintroduction of a bill that would mandate an investigation into her claim that Kinsey sexually abused children during his research. Through friends in the Justice Department, Reisman has helped push for an increased focus on prosecuting porn. As Reisman gathers influence across the world, her work is bearing an increasingly apparent mark on the Christian right’s political agenda and by extension, on social policy.

Some organisations in Croatia say that Reisman’s visit to Croatia is the result of the campaign of circles around the clergy, who are against the sex education in schools curriculum, to convince people that the scientific foundations of this curriculum are based on the criminal homosexual-pedophile work undertaken by Kinsey. Little doubt, those who say this are close to the government or its thinking; justifying perhaps the government’s unwavering resolve to implement its sex education curriculum “come Hell, or high water” in the constituency.

Having said all this, there were many in Croatia who welcomed Reisman and her talks; listened to her ideas, research, peacefully. That is what freedom of expression of ideas or freedom of information regarding an important issue affecting the society (such as sex education in schools) should be. So, there’s light at the end of the censorship tunnel – the incidents around Reisman may, hopefully, teach one how democracy should and should not work; and the threading of democratic processes may yet come to the seemingly badly needed drawing board

source

Long story short, Judith Reisman was invited to Croatia by the largest opposition party to speak before the Croatian Parliament (Sabor), after a journalist in the state-owned Croatian Radiotelevision was punished for showing parts of a film in which Reisman deals with Alfred Kinsey (so-called father of the sexual revolution). The journalist's choice of a movie was not a coincidence, though, since the architect of the new Health Education (including sex ed.) is an affiliate of the Kinsey Institute.

Reisman was also scheduled to hold lectures at three faculties in Zagreb (Political Science, Philosophy and Medicine). Unlike the Balkan apes from the Faculty of Political Science (hotbed of yesterday's fervent commies, i.e. today's liberals and cosmopolites), the Medicine students who attended her lecture were generally respectful and professional. The lecture at the Faculty of Philosophy fell through because there was too many people in the hall.

Predictably, the so-called sexual minorities were quick to call Reisman a homophobe and demand that she is denied to speak in the Parliament. I guess it's acceptable only for certain holy cows to ask for tolerance, freedom of speech and equality.

Centre for LGBT Equality Demands from the Sabor to Cancel the Lecture by Judith Reisman

A prominent Zagreb lawyer has offered to prosecute the journalists who defamed her (by suing them for slander and libel) and she agreed to authorize him for that. Let's see how that turns out.

We must dissent.

RE: Croatia, sex education and Dr. Judith Reisman
I have a lot of respect for Dr. Judith Reisman, who is considered an expert on human sexuality. In 2004, when asked about Kinsey's legacy, she said:

Quote:He brought us all this terrific freedom. We've had a 418% increase in reported forcible rape from 1960 to 1999, and that does not include children. And from 1960 to 1999, we've had a 400% increase in out-of-wedlock births. Each year, we contract 70,000 new cases of syphilis, 650,000 cases of gonorrhea, 64,000 cases of AIDS, 3,000,000 cases of chlamydia, 1,000,000 cases of genital herpes and 5,500,000 cases of human papillomavirus. Sixty-seven percent of our sex-abuse victims are now under the age of 18. Thirty-four percent are under age 12. So, it's really great. This sexual revolution was so helpful. Thank you very much, Dr. Kinsey and your covetous cadre.

RE: Croatia, sex education and Dr. Judith Reisman
I'm really glad she came here because the discussion she took part in revealed the true face of Croatia, which is that of a deeply divided nation. But at least now we can easily distinguish between friends and foes in our society.

I'm also very glad that the content of this fantastic Mustapaita's thread is often quoted to discredit the gender ideology present in the new curriculum.

RE: Croatia, sex education and Dr. Judith Reisman
Here's a part of an interview with Dr. Reisman. It's machine translated but I tried to fix it to the best of my abilities.

Quote:Judith Reisman: "People today have lost a sense of logic and common sense '

'False scientist'. 'Homophobe'. 'Anti-Semite'. 'A woman who spreads hate speech'. 'Crazy Grandma'. 'Controversial person'. Even before she stepped on the soil of our country she strongly stirred water in leftist circles and sparked a media hysteria, and threw us all into a state of collective amnesia thanks to which the news that our credit rating was once again thrown into the trash went almost unnoticed, those 370,000 unemployed fell somewhere on the margin, and even Severina's love life became uninteresting.

We talked with Dr. Judith Reisman in the foyer of the Hotel Astoria in Zagreb, as well as with members of the association Vigilare. Who is she really and what does she really represent?

The media have repeatedly called you a 'bogus scientist'. Can you say something about your scientific qualifications?

Yes. The media repeat what they were told to say. And those who resist my discoveries refuse to acknowledge that the father of human sexuality was a sexual psychopath who was involved in sexual torture of between 370 and 2,000 children. Whoever deals with the area of ​​human sexuality will have a hard time accepting this as true, and therefore will want to say that I have no scientific credibility. The basis of the overall sexual education today is Alfred Kinsey. I have here before me his book called 'Sexual Behavior in the Human Male'. Kinsey Institute recently published a book called 'Kinsey - The Man Who Has Changed the World'. So, yes, my scientific findings are disturbing. But if you go on to talk about the scientific credibility, I have a PhD from Case Western University in Cleveland. I was also invited to the leading universities around the world to speak about their discoveries about pornography and sexuality. I received the award in the amount of 800,000 U.S. dollars from the Ministry of Justice of the United States, I held lectures on human sexuality at the center of the FBI, in Quantico. I have published papers in Ethology and Sociobiology and various other journals. Whoever wants to can go to my website to read for themselves and then ask why should anyone attack a woman who has simply tried to reveal the glorification of one man who is responsible for the sexual abuse of thousands of children.

Yes, I am a scientist, but the problem that we face here, and not just here in Croatia, but almost everywhere, is that people's thinking has become restricted to accepting only views espoused by people with scientific credentials. People have no personal conscience. You do not have to be a scientist to be able to consider something and say, 'They did that to a two-month baby,' or, 'They did that a five-month baby.' People are being deprived of the right to believe in their own ability to perceive, it's being trampled on, and that's being done by very arrogant individuals who have some kind of degree, and then many people are afraid to believe in their own abilities. Is it really important that someone is a scientist? OK, I am, so what? I'm also a mother. Don't I, as a mother, have the same ability to look at information and say, 'Is that a crime?' You do this in court, right? When you come to court as a witness to a murder, do they ask if you are you a scientist? No. They just ask you whether something is true and did you see something. I hope people will understand what I'm trying to say. A lot of people call themselves scientists. Mengele was a scientist! Does this mean that what he did was acceptable or good? No. Scientists must have a sense of morality in order for people to trust them, and here you are dealing with people who are constantly lying about their research - but call themselves scientists nevertheless.

Unfortunately I've no time to correct the rest of it, but in case anyone is interested, here's the entire article.

We must dissent.

Our constitutional court has cancelled the entire health ed curriculum yesterday, citing a series of serious flaws, including the fact that the constitutional right of parents to raise their children in accordance with their weltanschauung was largely ignored.

We must dissent.

Where this figures come from? I can't believe that 75 % of the victims of sexual abuse are under the age of 18. Unless every sexual interaction between a person over the age of 18 and a person under the age of 18 is called "abuse", even if the person over the age of 18 is the 18 or 19 years old boyfriend of a 16 or 17 years old girl and the sex is consensual....

Even out-of-wedlock births aren't a big problem today, when in some districts 60 % of the marriages get divorced.....

STDs can secure be prevented by using condoms. So the problem doesn't lays in sexual freedom itself but in careless.

There was no evidences which links Dr. Kinsey to abuse or raping of children. He only used informations given by a pedophile person and some statements of other people. According to the German Wikipedia Reisman claimed that Kinsey had died on a testicle inflamation caused by "years of sadistic self abuse".

And she believes in "Erototoxins" that causes brain damages...... She likes to deprive people with this "brain damages" from the right of freedom of speech.......

This woman isn't very right, I must say........
