The identity confusion serges on and more ways to justify it continues. Being sold as the new “sexual orientation,” paedosexual is becoming more acceptable by the day. However, there are some that choose to suppress those urges and consider themselves “virtuous paedophiles.”
I have to admit, I had no idea what the hell this even was. To clear things up, here is a general idea. A ‘virtuous paedophile’ is simply someone who is attracted to children but chooses not to act on their urges.
It is this decision that distinguishes them from a child molester who physically attacks children. The title ‘virtuous paedophile’ comes from the online forum with same name. It was setup to provide support to help law-abiding paedophiles live ‘happy and productive lives’. It now has around 1,800 members and receives around 100 new posts each day.
Gary Gibson is such a person and says he would never act on his desires and has set up an organisation to help others. Gibson’s wife claims it as a mental illness while he seems to believe it is a sexual orientation. He tries not to “masturbate” to images but isnt too hard on himself if he fails.
Whatever you want to call it, my skin is crawling and I wouldn’t let my children even come close to this guy.
The Sun has the story:
THE British wife of a “virtuous paedophile” has said her husband’s sexual attraction to young girls is a mental health issue and more help should be available.
Tabitha Abel’s husband Gary Gibson is a “comfortably out” paedophile who is aroused by girls aged between 6 and 12 but chooses not to act on his urges.
Father-of-three Gary, 65, has set up a non-profit organisation that offers help and support to non-offending paedophiles.
He says his own desires do not extend to young boys and he tends not to be aroused by older teenage girls.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, he explained: “When they pass 12 they tend to get into themselves, start to make themselves look older, and I like things natural so there we are.
“When they start wearing lipstick and stuff like that I don’t find it very appealing.”
Happily-married Gary, a former teacher who has also worked in the grocery trade, is a devout Christian opposed to watching pornography in any form.
He says most people wouldn’t think of him as a paedophile because he “doesn’t fit the standard profile”.
He added: “I don’t go around in a white van giving candy to kids in the park.
“I’m just a normal everyday person.”
Gary is a member of an online forum called Virtuous Paedophiles which has around 1,800 members who are attracted to children but choose not offend.
He said the site receives around 100 new posts a day.
Gary has three children from a past relationship who are aged between 38 and 42, and he says they have come to terms with the fact their father is a paedophile.
He has candidly revealed that when they were born he made a pact with himself not to abuse any of them.
The loving dad, whose family has a dark history of incestual child sex abuse, lives with Tabitha in his native Oregon in the USA.
Astonishingly he says his wife reacted calmly when he told her he was a paedophile five years into their marriage.
Gary, who acknowledges he is “extremely lucky” in that respect, said: “She was very accepting.
“She was very supporting and accepting and was confident I had not done anything inappropriate.
“She was a little surprised but never said anything like ‘oh yikes’.
“She’s a medical (professional), she’s a nurse, so she sees it from a mental health perspective.”
British-born Tabitha, who was raised in Canterbury, Kent, met Mr Gibson while working in Oregon in 2004.
They married a year later and Gary told her he was a paedophile in 2010.
Tabitha, a retired nurse who was trained in Windsor, Berkshire, said: “He didn’t tell me he was a paedophile per say.
“He told me was sexually attracted to children.
“I don’t remember when I put the two and two together and said ‘he’s a paedophile.’
“I don’t consider him to be a paedophile because like most people I consider a paedophile to be a child molester – which he isn’t.
“It was a slow dawning.
“Paedophilia doesn’t mean that your a child molester, and I think that’s where people are caught out.”
The pair chose not to reveal whether or not they have a normal sexual relationship.
‘Virtuous paedophile’ Gary Gibson speaks out about his sexual orientation
Gary told the Sun Online how when he was younger his father sexually abused three of his sisters.
His maternal grandfather sexually abused two of his daughters and his paternal grandmother sexually abused at least two of her sons.
Gary has said he was never targeted himself as a youngster but that a counsellor once told him his mother had abused him.
His mother strongly denies the claim and Gary believes the therapist was trying to give him a “false memory”.
Gary says his wife was supportive in helping him set up the Association for Sexual Abuse Prevention International (ASAP) in 2014.
The non-profit organisation brings together mental health professionals and individuals who are sexually attracted to children.
It supports non-offending paedophiles who want to avoid acting on their urges.
Gary’s belief is that paedophiles don’t have to abuse children and can restrain themselves.
He said: “There are heterosexuals who chose not act on (their urges), there are homosexuals who chose not act on it.
“There are people who choose to be celibate and paedophiles can chose that too.”
