Allyn Walker A transgender professor who resigned from a Virginia university after sparking outrage by complaining that pedophilia is a “stigmatizing” term has been hired by prestigious Johns Hopkins University.
Allyn Walker, a former assistant professor at Old Dominion University who is a biological female but identifies as “non-binary,” created a firestorm last November by pushing the term “minor-attracted person” as an alternative to the “stigmatizing” designation of pedophile. Walker, author of a book called “A Long Dark Shadow: Minor-Attracted People and Their Pursuit of Dignity,” resigned after being put on leave, but has now resurfaced at the Baltimore school’s Moore Center for Prevention of Sexual Abuse.
“We are excited to share that Allyn Walker, PhD, will be joining the Moore Center as a postdoctoral fellow on May 25,” the Moore Center tweeted. We are excited to share that Allyn Walker, PhD, will be joining the Moore Center as a postdoctoral fellow on May 25.
— Moore Center for Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse (@MooreCenter_JHU) May 12, 2022 Old Dominion University put Walker on leave last November after an interview Walker gave to the Protasia Foundation to promote the book. In the interview, Walker insisted that the term “minor-attracted persons” was a preferable alternative to pedophile.
“It’s less stigmatizing than other terms like pedophile,” Walker said . “A lot of people when they hear the term pedophile, they automatically assume that it means a sex offender. And that isn’t true. And it leads to a lot of misconceptions about attractions toward minors.” Days later, Walker, 34, released a statement through Old Dominion insisting the effort to remove the stigma from adults who want to have sex with children was not a defense of child sex abuse.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
