Alfred Kinsey: Liberator or Pervert?
(New York Times link, I hope you know the drill by now.) A newish movie
explores the life of Alfred Kinsey
, sex researcher and founder of the Kinsey Institute
was author of the controversial book Sexual Behavior In The Human Male
. The controversy has blossomed oh these many years later with accusations that Kinsey's work is fraudulent
, and conducive to child based porn and fantasy
. The ultra-right seems obsessed with sexualizing his research in terms of "protecting the children"
. His observations have been linked to the addictive, destructive nature of pornography, that twists our notions of sex and love, and even enables the sexual abuse of college students in class. (Yeah, I know, that last sounds kinky, doesn't it?)

Lisa Gier King
- 'clearly willing and consensual sexual intercourse'
'Yahraus has consistently maintained that his sexual relations with King were consensual, a view shared by the police, the state attorney's office and the court'
or institutional misogyny
Difficult to comment
without seeing the film. Will releasing this film help either case
Hard to find anything online from the alternative viewpoint
