He had been posting nonsexual pictures of children on a Web site intended to promote the acceptance of pedophiles, and to direct other pedophiles to events and places where children tended to gather.
An activist, yet. This guy sounds charming. Interesting issues raised here, as Eugene Volokh says, though it's sort of hard to feel bad for him, mostly because he's blogging unabashedly about being a pedophile. I mean, what does the dude expect? Either way, I can't help but be reminded of John Turturro as Jesus Quintana in The Big Lebowski, going door-to-door to advertise. Which leads to another knotty ethical question: Is it appropriate to take a serious article and use it as an excuse to run a funny clip, even if it's sort of tangentially linked? And what would Robin Givhan have to say about John Turturro's trousers? They're very tight.
