Circumcision: Sexual Predation, Child Molestation and TypologiesDr. Richard Matteoli Salem-News.com
Predators prey on the weak. Child molesters and serial killers share a same personality type. Edward Mazza.
(MONTEREY, CA) - Circumcision is where sex and violence meets. Both sexes are victimized. Circumcision reduces the humanity of the victim to his or her genitals – a genitalization of the body. Attacking the genitals is as attacking the victim’s entire existence. Child Molesters put themselves in proximity to victims.
Sexual Predation is a pathologically directed activity involving the objectification of another person from a perceived sexual nature which often, though not necessarily, possesses the intent to do harm to another, whether physical and/or psychological.
Objectification is the degradation of another person by perceiving him or her as an object, like a tool to be used, as opposed to honoring him or her as an inherent valuable human being. Genitals become the abstracted social object.
The psychological process is Dissociation, also is a type of separating people from their fundamental humanity. Dissociation is integral to the perpetration of violence against others. Core fantasies are cemented by age sixteen.
Child Molestation is about sex. Child molesters actually like children. Rape, on the other hand is NOT about sex, but rather about anger, power, control with inflicting pain and humiliation.
Child Molesters believe they do no wrong and even imagine they improve their victim’s lives. Their attack neutralizes their greatest threat first. In the case of circumcision, the parent must be disarmed, usually with charm.
Censorship by threat and intimidation of the victim by the perpetrator often occurs with child molestation. Not to tell their special Dirty Little Secret. Sexual crime permeates all levels of society – high to low. The American Academy of Pediatrics recently became the only medical association in the world to advocate circumcision now refuses alternate viewpoints to table discussion at its conventions.
Paraphilias are disorders possessing sexual fantasies with abhorrent or deviant behavior. Pedophilia is a category of Child Molestation that includes attraction to, and fantasies involving, children that causes stress in the pedophile leading to social and occupational dysfunction. The route of this criminology has been socializing such behavior, historically mainly through theology and/or medicine.
Situational and Preferential
Situational Molesters have few victims with four subsets: 1) regressed, 2) morally indiscriminate, 3) sexually indiscriminate and 4) inadequate.
Genital Mutilators mainly fit in the subset morally indiscriminate. The other three subsets cannot be totally excluded because social rituals like circumcision allow everyone to participate with their own particular quirk. Criteria for the morally indiscriminate situational molester are:
Motivation – Why not?
Victim criteria – vulnerability and opportunity
MO / method of operation – manipulation, lure and force.
Preferential Molesters have many victims attacking a specific desired age group, basically:
Infantophilia is primary sexual attraction to children age five and under.
Ephebophilia is sexual attraction to people in puberty.
Hebephilia is sexual attraction to post-pubertal adolescents.
Fixed or Regressed
Fixated closely represents infant and child genital dismemberments of both sexes with emphasis on males. Regressed most closely represents adult genital dismemberment on both sexes depending on culture and current power relations including improper medicine which extends itself into all typologies. Some relationship variables are:
Primary sexual orientation is to children.
Persistent interests often accompanied with compulsive behavior.
Male victims are primary targets.
Identification: offender identifies closely with the victim and equalizes behavior to the level of the child and/or adopts a pseudo-parental role.
Offense = maladaptive resolution of life development (maturation).
Primary sexual orientation is to same age.
Involvement may be more episodic and may wax and wane with stress.
Female victims are primary targets.
Substitution: Offender replaces conflictual adult relationships with behavior to the level of the child, pseudo-adult relationship.
Offense = maladaptive attempt to cope with specific stresses.
