The Roots of Ashford

***UPDATE- Pedo freak responds

Long time readers will most likely recall the name Lindsay Ashford. For those of you who don't know of about the infamous and self declared pedophile... I'll give you a little background.
*All blockquoted items come from straight from the sicko's mouth keyboard. Directly following blockquoted items, you'll find my "perv to nonperv" translation.
Ridiculous laws restricting the sexual freedom of young people need to be abolished so that they can pursue their sexuality without fear, even if it involves an adult.

Read that to say "laws should be thrown out if they prevent me from sexually abusing your children for my own sick pleasure".
Everything is turning black again. Once again, swallowed by the pool of tears. Is there a way out of this labyrinthe of sadness?

Read to say, "I'm depressed" this particular quote is a good one to keep in mind, for later in this post I'll be discussing it.
This quote comes from an article about a new law in the state of Ohio. In essence, the law allows judges to condemn people without the benefit of due process and to subject them to public humiliation and discrimination. Considering that people whose name is on a registry are now limited in where they can live by an increasing number of states and municipalities and that their information is now available freely on the Internet, this flies in the face of the Constitution. Not only does it suspend due process but it is cruel and unusual punishment.

He's talking about a new law in Ohio which is quite nice if you ask me. The translation should read "oh, shit... now victims have a voice despite our attempts to keep them silent past the statue of limitations. That's so not fair, as if sexually abusing a child should even be a crime to begin with"
I had a look at the petition and discovered that its creator is thirty-two year old Traeci Hogan, who describes herself as a "parent of a survivor, and a survivor myself". She has found my site to be "absolutely appalling, and unfathomable".

Speaking of a petition started with the intent to remove the pedophilia sites ran by Linsday Ashford from the Internet. Translation "How dare someone try to point out that I not only support the pedophile lifestyle, but I want to legalize it."
I am not the enemy. The enemy is the one who wants to hurt your little girl. I am the one who would never do anything to cause harm to come to her.

Translate "I hope you are buying into this line of shit. Cause, I really want people to think that sex with little kids is okay. And that I'm not wrong for wanting to engage in this with their children. Damn, I just know they won't let me if the know the truth".
Ashford has long plead his case of being "misunderstood". He has went as far as to attempt to convince children that pedophilia is normal, and okay- by creating websites that reach out to young girls, filled with comments about how "special" an adult/child relationship can be.
I've been reading enough of his demented thoughts that he openly posts in hopes of persuading others that his heinous behavior is okay and acceptable- to say that there's more to Ashford than just the lonely sick pedophile he wants us to see.
So, I had to laugh a little when I read this the other night- The Roots of Pedophilia. There is was... staring me in the face, a perfect description of "the one" that so many online pervs turn to as if he is some sort of hero.
Pedophiles seem to have narcissistic and antisocial (psychopathic) traits. They lack empathy for their victims and express no remorse for their actions. They are in denial and, being pathological confabulators, they rationalize their transgressions, claiming that the children were merely being educated for their own good and, anyhow, derived great pleasure from it.

The pedophile's ego-syntony rests on his alloplastic defenses. He generally tends to blame others (or the world or the "system") for his misfortunes, failures, and deficiencies. Pedophiles frequently accuse their victims of acting promiscuously, of "coming on to them", of actively tempting, provoking, and luring (or even trapping) them.

The pedophile misinterprets the child's body language and inter-personal cues. His social communication skills are impaired and he fails to adjust information gained to the surrounding circumstances (for instance, to the kid's age and maturity).
It is likely - though hitherto unsubstantiated by research - that the typical pedophile is depressive and with a borderline personality (low organization and fuzzy personal boundaries). Pedophiles are reckless and emotionally labile. The pedophile's sense of self-worth is volatile and dysregulated. He is likely to suffer from abandonment anxiety and be a codependent or counterdependent.
Narcissistic pedophiles claim to be infallible, superior, talented, skillful, omnipotent, and omniscient. They often lie and confabulate to support these unfounded claims and to justify their actions. Most pedophiles suffer from cognitive deficits and reinterpret reality to fit their fantasies.

In extreme cases, the pedophile feels above the law – any kind of law. This grandiose and haughty conviction leads to criminal acts, incestuous or polygamous relationships, and recurrent friction with the authorities.

Okay, I know it's not nice to point fingers... but those of you who are widely aware of Ashfords behavior, his "they are out to get me" line of thinking, and of course the way that he so openly pouts when he fails to get his way, or is proven wrong... you know how I could just read this and sit back thinking that the author must know our deviant little pedophile rather well.

Truthfully, it's not just him. A day of reading through the chat logs over at the sickening Girl Chat forums, and you're likely to find a large group of people that seem to fit the description extremely well.

Anyway, the article is worth reading, although I must admit that I have personal discrepancies with just a few of the writers comments, such as the estimated ratio of pedophile to non sickos. But, I'm willing to overlook it- just to be able to read over and over again how someone seemed to so easily peg Ashford for the sad, depressing little rat he is.
