Destroying another homophobic lie

Rob Tisinai blows up the old “gay men are molesters” trope. As is typical of the homophobic, anti-equality crowd, their argument is based not on fact or objective reality, but rather on faith: be it faith in hearsay and thoughtless aping of old biases (like the one above), or faith in antiquated religious dicta. The pro-equality side, on the other hand, puts together cogent, coherent arguments like Tisinai’s (which basically boils down to using published studies on pedophilia to show that you really cannot deduce anything from the proclaimed orientation of a pedophile; their senses of sexual attraction are less straight or gay than seriously pathological in general) using facts and reason.
