Thanks to other concerned parents and friends, a web-site promoting "GirlLove" was brought to my attention.  My initial reaction was that something so heinous must have been a mistake, or a gross exaggeration.  Unfortunately, I was wrong.  The site was far worse than depicted.  The site is here, so you can see for yourself. 

     This website is a safe haven for pedophiles. The heading on their main page reads, "A Celebration of the Splendor of Little Girls".  It includes links to pictures, or "art" as they call it, of little girls, confessional blogs, a directory of resources for pedophiles (for "both boy lovers and girl lovers, as well as anybody else looking for information about pedophilia and consensual child love"), as well as many other links. This site has a manifesto, stating demands to the government to legalize pedophilia.


          The most disturbing  is a link to a page title Sugar and Spice that is specifically for little girls who have "fallen in love" with a pedophile. This site reads like propaganda!  It looks like any other fun SAFE little girly page.  It tells girls that it is okay to be "in love" with an adult, and it is okay to have sex with an adult. A quote from the page: "Remember that information helps you to make the choices that are right for YOU. Don’t let other people think for you, YOU know yourself better than anybody else, so YOU should be the one to decide whom to love and how to use your mind and your body." It has a questions and answers section, downloads, and a page to links for more information.

     This website claims to be legal.  It is hosted in the Netherlands, and even there, the age of consent is 18.  However, I am not sure what that means as far as the web-site’s legality.  There is even a link on their web page to report them to authorities. Here is a quote from that page: "Are you outraged by what you have just been reading? Do you think that sites like this should be banned? Do you think that, despite the fact that there is nothing illegal on this site whatsoever, its creators should be locked up? Do you support severely curtailing the constitutionally guaranteed right to freedom of speech and the suspension of civil rights in the execution of draconian laws against law-abiding citizens whose world view happens to be different than yours? If so, you are in good company! This site has already been reported numerous times to a number of law enforcement organizations including the FBI, the RCMP and Interpol. If you are undeterred by the fact that this site is already well-known within the law enforcement community and that it is in no way illegal, and you still want to do your civic duty and exercise your freedom of speech by denouncing the free speech of another citizen, let us help you. Here we have compiled a list of contacts for a number of law enforcement bodies that you might wish to contact. We have even included a form that will allow you to contact several of these agencies at once!"

     I signed a petition on-line as a starting place to put an end to this…  sickness.  You can sign the same petition here.  There was another petition started to get the attention of PayPal.  In one place on the site, the owner cries about how he has been denied jobs and has lost existing clients when they found out about his sites and "sexual orientation."  He asks for donations to keep the sites, its resources, and his livelihood going.  He asks for you to donate through PayPal to make sure that he can still pay the rent and his other living expenses because his love of girls and his unwillingness to hide it from the world is costing him.  After only 340 signatures, PayPal shut him down.  They will no longer take donations for him, his web-site, or any other thing/cause/site they can associate with him.  So, never underestimate the power of your word!

          As I looked through the site to see if there was anything that would filter it out in a child’s "parental controlled" search, I was sickened.  There is nothing deemed "adult content" because the images are "art."  There is no offensive language.  Your child can find this site even with filters…  The author says there is a difference between pedophilia and child molestation.   The author is a pedophile and not a child molester because his love is pure, and he would never hurt a child.  He would only partake in consensual child love.  He says he carries a light within himself – the light of child love and he is no longer willing to hide it from the world.

          Shut this bastard down.

          There is no such thing as consensual child love.  As a child, your mind cannot grasp the consequences of "being in love" with an adult, let alone sexual contact with an adult – or anyone else, for that matter.  As a child, what you feel okay with right now, you may not feel okay with in a week, or a month, or a year, or ten years!  As a child, you cannot get your young mind around what you are truly partaking in when you have sexual contact, or are "in love" with an adult.  There is no such thing as consensual sex with a child.  I think the author was confused.  He meant to say "uninformed consensual sex."  Do you really think he will explain that having sex at 12 can do serious harm to your developing reproduction system?  Or that in 10 years, you may wake up one morning feeling violated in every way?  Or that it is not a "sexual orientation," but a sickness that is driving him to you? 

     I love the Internet for many reasons.  I think it is a great resource, and even a source of sanity for people like me who are often separated from loved ones.  However, you can also bet that thanks to sites like these, sites that avoid filters through crafty wording and "art", my children will never have a computer in their own rooms, and their searches will be monitored, etc.  You may think I am paranoid, but I would not want my children, out of sheer curiosity, to delve deeper into this site, or one like it, and get hooked.
