Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb signed a two-year budget bill on May 4. While the Republican-passed and -ratified House Bill 1001 featured accelerated tax cuts and a robust private school voucher program, it served also to spare the taxpayers in the state from paying into a sex institute founded by a notorious pervert esteemed by liberals for his distortion of Americans’ perception of sex and normalcy.
Among the many things HB 1001 does is require that state appropriations cannot be “used to pay for the administration, operation, or programs of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction.”
While leftists have long supported defunding various institutions, they have taken exception to this case, with some suggesting that the move is “tremendously disappointing.”
Alfred C. Kinsey, who died in 1956, penned two controversial and consequential books which were used to great effect by proponents of the so-called sexual revolution: “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male” and “Sexual Behavior in the Human Female.”
Crisis Magazine noted Kinsey and his colleagues proclaimed in their research, “69 percent of men had been with prostitutes, 10 percent had been homosexual for at least three years, and 17 percent of farm boys had experienced sex with animals.”
With these bogus projections, “Kinsey shattered the idea of sexual behavior as binary, showing that the sexual habits of thousands of Americans were varied and diverse as a field of wildflowers,” reported Discover Magazine.
The force with which Kinsey shattered traditional ideas itself depended upon the shattering of innocents.
Newsweek reported that former Kinsey Institute director John Bancroft admitted to believing that “the late sexologist based many of his findings about prepubescent sexual activity on the diaries of one anonymous child molester. That prolific pedophile kept records of his encounters with 317 children from 1917 to 1948.”
After meeting a child rapist in June 1944, the New York Times indicated Kinsey “wrote to [him], coaxing him to send his detailed diaries of his sexual exploits, including those with children.”
James H. Jones noted in “Alfred C. Kinsey: A Public/Private Life” that in a Nov. 24, 1944, letter, Kinsey wrote to the pedophile, “‘I rejoice at everything you send, for I am then assured that that much more of your material is saved for scientific publication.”
Kinsey used tales of the pedophile’s child-rapes as the bases for tables in his book on male sexual behavior, which reportedly summarized the pedophile’s attempts to make children from 2 months to 15 years of age orgasm.
These tables, presented to the public, documented pre-adolescent sexual experience, which Kinsey deemed “an important substantiation of the Freudian view of sexuality as a component that is present in the human animal from earliest infancy.”
Judith Reisman, an independent researcher, began blasting the long-dead Kinsey in the 1980s for his unscientific methods and exploitation of child rape, stating, “When you rape children … it’s still a crime. And if you solicit it and if you support it, it’s still a crime.”
Extra to bastardizing child-rape data to serve his pseudo-scientific ends, the Washington Times reported Kinsey has also been accused of bribing test subjects, fudging data, and filming coerced sex between his staff and one another’s spouses.
Bankcroft admitted in 1995, “How valid this information is, obviously one could argue about now.”
Kinsey founded the Institute for Sex Research at Indiana University in 1947, which later became known as the Kinsey Institute.
WTHR reported that conservatives have long criticized the institute for continuing the work of liberalizing sexual morals and broadening acceptance of homosexuality and pornography.
State Rep. Lorissa Sweet, the Republican who introduced the proposal to defund the institute through an amendment to HB 1001, intimated that funding the institute amounts to endorsing the alleged crimes and falsehoods that accompanied its rise to prominence.
“By doing such dastardly experiments on children, Kinsey ‘determined’ that children are sexual from birth, which is why our society now sexually exploits children at very young ages,” said Sweet. “By limiting the funding to Kinsey Institute through Indiana University’s tax dollars, we can be assured that we are not funding ongoing research committed by crimes.”
“We have child rapists in Indiana prisons right now, yet we’re willing to give Indiana University, Bloomington campus, over $400 million as they protect the legacy of this sexual predator,” continued Sweet. “Who knows what they’re still hiding?”
Mat Staver, founder of the conservative group Liberty Counsel, said of the bill’s success in defunding the institute, “Alfred Kinsey was a sexual pervert whose unscientific propaganda exploited women and harmed children. Kinsey should have been prosecuted for the vile abuse of children he catalogued in Table 34 of his first book published in 1948. His work is indefensible. Indiana University should disassociate itself from anything related to Alfred Kinsey.”
Democratic state Rep. Matt Pierce suggested that by ensuring taxpayer dollars do not go to the pervert-founded institution, the “more extreme parts of the Republican Party are trying to turn back the clock to a time when gays were in the closet and trans people were invisible,” reported the Indiana Daily Student.
“The fact that the Kinsey Institute is doing research to bring light and knowledge to human sexuality, that runs against their goal of marginalizing people who aren’t in the mainstream,” added Pierce.
Justin Garcia, executive director of the Kinsey Institute and gender studies professor at Indiana University, said in a Washington Post op-ed earlier this month, “[I]t is tremendously disappointing that Indiana lawmakers voted late last month to approve a budget that specifically blocks Indiana University from using state funding to support the Kinsey Institute, and that last week Gov. Eric Holcomb signed it into state law. This is an unprecedented action that takes aim at the very foundation of academic freedom.”
Pamela Whitten, president of Indiana University, condemned the move, stating, “The university is concerned that a provision singling out a specific research institute sets a troubling precedent with implications that could limit the ability of public colleges and universities to pursue research and scholarship that benefits people and improves lives.”
Whitten further suggested that “IU will conduct a thorough legal review to ensure the university follows state law. The university is committed to the ongoing crucial research and robust scholarship conducted by IU faculty and the Kinsey Institute.”
The Herald-Times reported that, notwithstanding liberals’ outrage, the change boils “down to a bookkeeping update for the university” since the institute does not receive direct funding, but now cannot lay claim to any of the lump sum conferred to Indiana University.
