In July, it will be 60 years since North Korea and China signed an armistice with the U. and the United Nations to bring an end to three years of brutal, bloody Cold War fighting that cost millions of lives. troops off Korean soil, and the bombs and rockets are more of an expensive, dangerous safety blanket than real firepower. He says Pyongyang hasn't successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile.
The designated 'Demilitarized Zone' has evolved into the most heavily guarded border in the world. But six decades later, North and South remain divided, with Pyongyang feeling abandoned by the South Koreans in the quest for reunification and threatened by the Americans. military confirmed that those drills included two nuclear-capable B-2 stealth bombers that can unload the U. Air Force's largest conventional bomb - a 30,000-pound super bunker buster - powerful enough to destroy North Korea's web of underground military tunnels. Narushige Michishita, director of the Security and International Studies Program at Japan's National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies, isn't convinced North Korea is capable of attacking Guam, Hawaii or the U. For months, the masterminds of North Korean propaganda have pinpointed this year's milestone Korean War anniversary as a prime time to play up Kim's military credibility as well as to push for a peace treaty.
Today, however, with this newer research "Rind is banking on a more amenable political and scholarly atmosphere in which to conclude comparable things.
And from the sound of it—or rather, the utter lack of sound—he has gotten his wish.
In his 168-page book, titled , Kershnar calls into question pedophilia's moral status and compares the revulsion people experience at the thought of adults and kids having sex to the disgust many experience viewing images of obese people having sex.
With that notable lack of professional and government condemnation, the sociologist believes that Rind's scholarship will likely serve to weaken age of consent laws.
Rind's second recently published study analyzes the "long-term adjustment and functioning" of boys who experienced their first same-sex sexual experience with adult men, employing data from the 1992 National Health and Social Life Survey.
While this data is population-based and is much more recent than the Kinsey data used in the other study, both articles nevertheless "seek to 'test,' and purport to undermine, the child sexual abuse (CSA) framework in which 'all minor-adult sexual interactions are considered abusive, traumatic, and psychologically injurious by nature,'" Regnerus said."Men whose first postpubertal same-sex sexual experience was as a minor with an adult were as well adjusted as controls," Rind wrote in one study.
Although this should seem obvious it is no longer the case, she said.
Nearly two decades ago, Rind wrote in a 1998 issue of Psychological Bulletin that the long-term destructive effects of child abuse are overestimated, a claim that both the American Psychological Association and both Houses of Congress rejected publicly.
He predicts that those who hesitate to embrace Rind's conclusions may soon be considered "out of touch, narrow-minded, or worse, hateful" in broader society as has been the case with things that were once considered inconceivable like same-sex marriage and transgender children."With Rind's work published to little critique, the age of consent is faltering—now aided by multiple peer-reviewed publications," Regnerus said."Such laws were meant to protect the innocent and shield the vulnerable, but instead of these longstanding concerns, values like sexual exploration and autonomy have begun to emerge as linchpins of a 'healthier' sexuality at the same time as the language of public health and social science have come to dominate discourse in this domain."The normalization of adult-child sexual relations in scholarly works appears to be growing in the past few years.
