Bill, thank you for this perspective on the film, and Kinsey himself. Kinsey's child sex experimentation is nothing more than documented child sexual abuse. It is important that these shocking aspects of his research are made known. It reminds me of Mendele and his cohorts in Nazi camps.

Child abuse, pornography and sexually oppressive relationships precede the 1960s. Reading Muehlenberg's article could almost make you think otherwise. For example, the Victorian era (1837-1901) saw a flourishing of pornography, prostitution including child prostitution alongside what we call traditional marriage. Kinsey may have a lot to answer for but he is not responsible for the start of sexually unequal relationships.

Muehlenberg skates over the question of homosexuality. Well, I'll fill you in here. As a gay man I feel a lot freer and happier than I ever could in the oppressive 1950s in Australia with its disgusting attitudes to homosexuality and its anti-gay legislation. If Kinsey and his followers were responsible for freeing gays from that oppressive period then good on them. And the Australian Family Association (AFA) and its clones can shove their abusive anti-gay "reparative" therapy (aimed at making gay people straight). Not only is it sexual abuse, it is an unethical use of psychology and social work. Members of those professions are not surprisingly angry about that. Funny how Muehlenberg omitted that little detail in his article.

Well said DavidJS
Either Deakin Uni gives PHDs away these days or Bill going to be trying for his a bit longer. In Bills world Christians are all happily married to their soul mates, have four or five perfect children who get full marks in every subject including creation science. No one coverts his next neighbors wife (husband) and nobody is guy. Itís been a recent trend for Christian groups to try and rewrite history. The two favorites at the moment is the sexual revolution and the enlightenment has caused our once perfect Christian society to fall

DavidJS. I don't think that Kinsey had much to do with the broader acceptance of homosexuals over the years. I would be pretty uncomfortable using this pervert as a pin-up boy.

It's also pretty disappointing that normally compassionate people like yourself are prepared to defend this criminal and ignore the monumental damage he did to children because you percieve some advantage to your cause in a small area of his research.

DavidJS and Kenny, I guarantee that both of you would be the first to scream the place down if anyone dared suggest using data the Nazis collected by the murder and torture of Gypsies and Jews. Not much difference here. You shouldn't automatically embrace everything you perceive as "progressive" just for that reason. Both of you should read Reismans' book Kinsey, Sex and Fraud, as I have. Maybe you'll change your minds.

What ever this Kinsey guy did or didn't do is pretty much irrelevent now, so Cranky - they might as well use the results of this disturbing study on kids to the advantage of future generations....much like they DO use the discoveries from the Nazi consentration camps in medical science today.

I find it FAR more disturbing that the author is blaming everything from divorce to the hole in the ozone layer on unoppressed sexuality - like the alternative of abstinence only (makes more teen pg than sex education... not to mention the increase we are going to see in sexually transmitted diseases) and up-tight, sex-in-the-dark-with-one-person-for-your-whole-life sex (psychological damage, paedophillia - just look at catholic priests!!!!!)

Abstinence is not natural...

Difference is Newsroo some of the results of the Nazi tests have been valuable to science. Kinsey was a perverted predator and his results are crap.
