Transgender Minnesota Lawmaker Pushes Bill to Remove Language That Bans Pedophilia from Being a Protected Sexual Orientation

Like something straight out of the final days of the Roman Empire, a transgender state lawmaker in Minnesota has put forward a bill to scrap language inside of the state’s Human Rights Act which currently reads that sexual orientation protections do not cover “a physical or sexual attachment to children by an adult.”

The first question is… who is this person’s constituency? In a time where middle and working class families are struggling to pay for gas and groceries, especially those living in the midwest, why on earth is this a priority? Has Minnesota found a way to cure cancer, end crime, and solve all the other important challenges we face today, leaving the conversation of what to do with pedophiles as the last question upon everyone’s mind?

According to a Fox News report, “the bill’s author says nothing in the text would weaken pedophilia laws.”

“The ‘Take Pride Act’ (HF 1655) was introduced earlier this year by state Rep. Leigh Finke, a member of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party,” the report states.

I don’t know what type of person would ever take pride in being sexually attracted to children, but if that makes me a bigot by today’s standards, so be it.

What in the Twilight Zone is Going on?

The Minnesota Human Rights Act is, according to Fox, one of the strongest civil rights laws in the union. Alas, it’s not strong enough it seems.

Finke’s bill would remove existing language in the law which currently states “Sexual orientation’ does not include a physical or sexual attachment to children by an adult.”

The Daily Caller describes the situation simply: “Democratic Minnesota state representatives introduced legislation that could end the exclusion of pedophilia from legal protections of sexual orientation in state law.”

Fox News and other outlets who discovered the situation did reach out to Finke’s office for comment on this ludicrous proposal.

According to Finke, the measure “updates outdated language that incorrectly ties pedophilia to a person’s sexual orientation.”

“Nothing in the bill changes or weakens any crimes against children, or the state’s ability to prosecute those who break the law,” said Finke. “Of course, pedophilia is not a sexual orientation. The language never should have been included in the statutory definition in the first place. Crimes against children are located in Minnesota’s criminal statutes, and again, they remain unchanged.”

This twisted work around doesn’t make what Finke is proposing any better, in fact, by Finke’s logic, that change doesn’t need to be made at all. And yet, here we are.

Already the progressive left has attempted to rework the American family and society into their own image. Take your child to a drag show, teach your kid they’re a racist or a victim based off their skin color, send your daughter into a bathroom with a biological man, and don’t forget to wave hello to your neighborhood pedophile as you go to the surgeon to remove your daughter’s breasts so she can live as a man.

How this is not the most universally opposed law in America by both sides of the aisle and the entirety of the media says more about America today than anything else.

Disturbing and Inexplicable

Finke also wants to change the legal definition of “sexual orientation” by adding another definition for “gender identity.”

The proposed definition states:

“‘Gender identity’ means a person’s inherent sense of being a man, woman, both, or neither. A person’s gender identity may or may not correspond to their assigned sex at birth or to their primary or secondary sex characteristics. A person’s gender identity is not necessarily visible to others.”

GOP House Minority Leader Lisa Demuth in a statement provided to Fox News stated that “Under the Human Rights Act, the definition of sexual orientation says that sexual orientation does not include physical or sexual attraction to children by an adult — or, more simply described, pedophilia. The Democrats’ decision to strike this language is disturbing and inexplicable.”

She added that “House Republicans will be presenting an amendment today to clarify that pedophilia is absolutely not a protected class under the Human Rights Act. We sincerely hope Democrats will join us in ensuring our children are protected.”
