“is john byre a pedophile?” and other falsely, almost slanderous misperceptions and half-truths… online usage — Comics Pro John Byrne compares transgender people to pedophiles in conversation along with followers on his online forum : torbakhopper
since my photo was used, i feel like i have a right to weigh in on this topic.
please go here to read the FACTS on pedohilia and to see and understand the profile of these people.
click below link for RELEVANT data, not stupid homophobic and misleading mythos.
please read them.
any child you save from one of these "monsters" will save one hundred more children from the monster that the monster creates. pedophilia is based on rape concepts and abuse often disguised as kindness and love. it RUINS the mind of a child and destroys their hope for any kind of good life and sexual maturation. save the monsters from making more monsters!
also, if you take time to read this information, you will stop blaming homosexuals for man-on-boy molestations — it’s more likely that it’s your straight husband or your young son who "likes" girls than it is a homosexual male, especially one who is brave enough to come out to such a hostile society.
heck, you don’t know john byre and you’re more likely to be afraid of someone you don’t know than you are to suspect your own husband or child even though ALL the stats indicate that the real child molestor is someone you know….
the probabilities that could suggest that mr. byne IS a pedophile are much more likely than the probabilities that a homosexual is — 98% of pedophiles identify as STRAIGHT.
but is he a PEDOPHILE?
would it bother JOHN TO BE COMPARED TO A PEDOPHILE?
would it bother JOHN TO KNOW PEOPLE THOUGHT HE WAS A PEDOPHILE?
would it make him sad TO BE KNOWN AS A PEDOPHILE?
look what i found on wikipedia about john:
Byrne was married to photographer and actress Andrea Braun Byrne for 15 years. Braun’s son from a previous marriage is Kieron Dwyer, and Byrne became Dwyer’s stepfather when the boy was 13. They only lived together for a short time as the young Dwyer soon moved to Los Angeles to live with his father. Byrne encouraged Dwyer’s aspirations to be a cartoonist and his connections led to Dwyer’s first professional job drawing Batman #413 (Nov. 1987)
in a very short biography, that’s a lot of info about a man-boy relationship…
but i’m not saying
HE’S A PEDOPHILE.
he isn’t, is he?
it just sounds like i might be saying it, doesn’t it, john?
and how does that make you feel?
i read mr. byrne’s actual statements and didn’t find them terribly alarming or unusual — aside from his FOOLISH AND MISGUIDED AND HURTFUL comparison that pedophiles and surgically altered people are going to be treated the same because they are similar?
sadly, much of what he said that will get lost was actually thoughtful and insightful.
so, mister byrne here’s how they are different — one is a personal exploration that doesn’t fuck up the lives of children who then will go off and abuse others forever.
and if we stand beside these beautiful creatures who are not unlike us, and we comfort them when they fail and when things get BOTCHED, what then? what of our kindness and our bravery?
but that’s how news works…
here’s his quote:
JOHN BYRNE [replies to interviewer]:
"A REALLY hard question, then: Many people are tortured and driven by a desire to have sex with children. Our society frowns on this, and such people are considered mentally ill. We do not accommodate them, we do not respect them.
How is being “transgender” different? Given all the twists and turns that have happened in our general understanding of how the brain and mind work — still a work in progress — how difficult is it to imagine a future in which it will be determined without doubt that “transgender” is, indeed, a mental illness? How will we feel about all those people who, instead of actually helping them, we encouraged in a program of self-mutilation?
This is a long, long road, and so far we have taken barely a single step upon it. (Christine Jorgenson was half a century ago. How much has changed?)"
it’s important to realize that mr. byrne is THINKING out loud for an interview.
his grammar is very concise, as well. he never says that he feels it is wrong. he speaks directly to the sense of an abstract future in which many people will be in surgically-altered bodies.
he is asking us if we, those who support the quest for radical self identification, will feel guilty later when things can and will go horribly wrong.
BUT, unlike pedophiles, who are the victims of the transgendered?!?!?!
and this is where the comparison becomes hateful in the eyes of the transgendered person who is seeking self completion, not out to abuse and lie and destroy the life of another and start a cycle of unending monstrosity.
so yes, mr. byrne, we actually do respect and support pedophilia in this country. for instance, you probably know NOTHING about actual pedophilia to make this kind of comparison. or maybe you do.
and this kind of intentional ignorance and SCAPEGOATING of homosexuals and the transgendered is a carpet underbrushing. it’s bullshit, based on heretical ignorance and manipulation of actual facts.
you are proudly saying, "go ahead, let heterosexual males fiddle our kids, we don’t care as long as we can hate sexual deviance in homosexual and transgendered people."
anyway, i suggest you retract your comparison. it’s intellectually offensive and inaccurate.
but, beyond this inaccurate and hurtful comparison, as a gay man who has watched the society that i live in "toy" with the idea of socially accepting my "lifestyle" choice, all i can say is THANK YOU, mr. byrne for asking these questions.
someone needs to be asking them in a non-judgmental way.
we need real answers and we need support and people to get on board.
we need to stand up and say, YES, we know and understand the risks, we accept them!!!!
WE ACCEPT THEM!!!!
and when things fail, we will know that failure is LIFE.
so stop pretending that something any different or the same is going to happen and you can figure it all out before it starts.
that’s not life.
life is about being surrounded by the failures of others, including our own. it’s about being surrounded by the success of others, including our own.
it’s not about unification, it’s about CRAMIFICATION.
we are crammed together, our "consciousness" is crammed inside our "body". our languages are crammed up against each other. we cram all day. cram food into our face, cram events into our calendars, cram reality into tv boxes and cram our heads full of fake fantasies.
cramming is a lot like mechanization.
it starts to gain its own life.
it’s time we start to see and acknowledge and embrace the machinations of the dawning age.
the new age is preoccupied with mechanistic functions and productivity and usefulness.
so it seems, are all those people around me.
