EXCLUSIVE: Prostasia Forced Academic Journal to Delete Critical Research

A Professor who criticised Prostasia had his research article on the activist organization erased after they allegedly bullied the publishing journal into deleting his work.

Dr. Alaric Naudé, a Professor focused on the social sciences and linguistics at Suwon University in South Korea, had his research on Prostasia removed from The British Journal of Sociology and History just 24 hours after it was first published on February 9.

When Dr. Naudé inquired with the Journal on the reason why, he was told Prostasia had contacted them and demanded its removal on the grounds that the group claimed it was defamatory.

The article, titled A Case Study via Sociolinguistic Analysis of [a] Covert Pro-Pedophilia Organization Registered as a Child Protection Charity, focused on how Prostasia claims to be for child protection but builds a narrative framing pedophiles as victims of “an oppressive social structure.”

In the work, Dr. Naudé interrogates Prostasia’s approach to so-called child safeguarding, and criticizes academics who don’t push back against their rhetoric. He also sources policies, quotes, and profiles directly from Prostasia’s own website to evidence his argument.

“I made an in-depth analysis of the claims made by these pseudo-child protection organisations and cross referenced their claims for validity against researchers who did not belong to the same ideological group,” Dr. Naudé explained to Reduxx, “What I found was that their claims had been debunked by respected researchers that stated the opposite of what Prostasia claimed.”

Dr. Naudé points to a study conducted by Finnish child safeguarding NGO Suojellaan Lapsia Ry, which found that pedophiles “being in contact with other users can exacerbate the problem. Users might justify each other’s behavior, thus perpetuating the cognitive distortion that [child sexual abuse material] use is acceptable.” He notes that Prostasia fully contradicts such findings, instead encouraging pedophiles to form social groups for the purposes of “support” and “destigmatization,” all while supporting the legalization of “artistic” child sexual abuse material and “fantasy outlets” for pedophiles.

“These ‘peer’ groups actually prevent people with pedophilic urges from getting help from a clinical psychologist,” Dr. Naudé says, continuing “Further, saying that pedophilia is innate sexuality actually makes it more difficult for pedophiles to direct their desires away from children. Prostasia is not helping.”

Dr. Naudé says he became interested in Prostasia while researching propaganda for a separate article he published in 2021, and a subsequent book on linguistics.

“During my research, I went into how propagandists stifle dissent by using laws that are meant to protect people but twisting them. During that time, I discovered the groundwork that had been laid for a pedophilic movement within academia, one that would lay semi-dormant until numbers were to their advantage,” he says, noting that he began to look into child protection policies and became aware of groups “claiming to want to protect children but whose linguistic markers denoted that something else was their intention.”

Dr. Naudé tells Reduxx that he feels a movement sympathetic to pedophilia has become deeply entrenched in academia.

“So much so that many academics are now emboldened to either soften the tone toward pedophilia by “destigmatization” or otherwise openly saying that it is not immoral at all,” he mentions Michel Foucault as well as the recent blowout with Old Dominion instructor Allyn Walker as examples.

“The fake-it-till-you-make-it approach taken by Prostasia and others poses a serious danger to children and wider society once these ideas become mainstream. Stigma exists for a reason.” Dr. Naudé goes on to note that children do not have the cognitive ability to learn about kink, which Prostasia often promotes, or most sexual behavior.

“Teaching children about ‘sex-positivity’ is what everyone else calls grooming. If Prostasia is a child protection organisation, then I suppose an abattoir is an animal rights centre,” Dr. Naudé concludes, noting that “The longer these organizations exist, the more powerful they become and the more corrupt the academia that supports them becomes.”
