To make it clear and crystal to all reading this thread.

Nobody associated with this site or those making comments or the OP of the article are insinuating anything untoward about the Minister or anything regarding him.

The OP is asking the question if the Minister is aware of the views and opinions of Mr. Tatchell in light of his admiration and acknowledgment of him regarding the tweet of him and Mr. Tatchell at a Gay Pride Event.


Many Concerned members of the public would like the Minister to state that he cannot condone those views that Mr. Tatchell has held in the past.

New Minister for Children Roderic O'Gorman at Dublin Pride 2018 with controversial author Peter Tatchell.

'To challenge "the assumption that all sex involving children and adults is abusive" is courageous.'





Ireland's new Minister for Children Roderic O'Gorman is on the left. Peter Tatchell is in the green shirt beside him.


Tatchell is a prominent gay British LGBT activist who ran for the Labour Party in the 80’s and then joined the British Green party in 2004. He is a patron of Elly Barnes’ Educate and Celebrate institution.



According to their website, Educate and Celebrate is ‘an experienced team of teachers and youth workers who have all made their own schools LGBT+Friendly, giving them the knowledge to deliver throughout the UK, the Channel Islands, Europe and globally.’ Elly Barnes, the founder is a recommend resource for INTO (Teachers Union and Org) and their LGBT education material "Different Families, Same Love" which is aimed at Primary school kids.

In 2011, Tatchell in a now deleted post on his website (archived) claimed that schoolchildren should be taught fellatio and cunnilingus, as a ‘safe’ option.



In 2016, Tatchell was named as winner of the James Joyce Award 2016 and the recipient of an Honorary Fellowship from University College Dublin.

In June, 2018, Tatchell was the name attraction to the Dublin LGBTQ Pride Political Debate 2018, along with Fintan Warfield (SF), Justin McAleese (FF & Mary's Son), Martin Conway (FG) and Sara Phillips of TENI (Trans Equality Network Ireland). Here they discussed the reformation of Ireland's sex education laws.

Tatchell has advocated lowering the age of consent to 14.

Perhaps Tatchell's most controversial statement is the one he made in a letter to the Guardian in 1997. Images of this letter are shared below.

The quality of either image isn't great but you can clearly see in the first paragraph he agrees with the statement that to challenge "the assumption that all sex involving children and adults is abusive" is courageous.




In the letter he also stated that several of his friends "gay and straight, male and female had sex with adults from the ages of nine to thirteen" and that none feel they were abused — "it gave them great joy".



Tatchell claims his letter was heavily edited but he never sued. According to The Mail he apologised for the letter and said the book he was referring to was not 'a paedophile handbook' but written by psychologists and anthropologists.

In this tweet he suggests he meant not all sex between children and other children is abusive, unwanted & harmful,” but you can clearly see in his original letter he said "sex involving children and adults".




Peter Tatchell wrote a chapter in the controversial book Betrayal of Youth (1986). According to a Daily Mail article, ‘The book’s editor was Warren Middleton, a prominent activist with the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), the notorious lobby group formed in the Seventies to campaign for the ‘rights’ of predatory sex offenders….Also in the book was an essay by PIE activist Roger Moody entitled: How To Make Paedophilia Acceptable, followed by a screed by Beatrice Faust, a radical Australian feminist who worked closely with Germaine Greer. In Tatchell's chapter he advocated lowering the age of consent. You can read it here.

Here's a glossary of the book's contents. It speaks for itself.

Peter Tatchell describes a method to nullify parents opting out of LGBT lessons for their children in schools at the Dublin Pride Annual Debate in June 2018.


link

"In the UK, the government is still saying that the parents of kids should have the right to withdraw them from relationship and sex education. We're not going to win that one to stop that.

"But what I'm proposing and what my foundation is proposing is that yes the parental optout should remain but parents should be required to come to the school and take their child out of each individual lesson.

"And of all places, two schools in the north of Ireland trialled this about five or six years ago before they got stopped. But they found the level of parental opt-out dropped to almost zero."

[audience members laugh]

On stage were Senator Fintan Warfield (SF), Justin McAleese, Martin Conway (FG) and Sara Phillips of TENI (Trans Equality Network Ireland).

Peter Tatchell describes his vision for the future — one where the vast majority is bisexual


link

"Our need to maintain sexuality differences, boundaries and identities disappears with the demise of straight supremacism and homophobia.

"Homosexuality as a separate, exclusive sexual orientation and identity will begin to fade and so will its mirror opposite heterosexuality as we evolve into a sexually enlightened and accepting post homophobic society.

"The vast majority of people will be open to the possibility of both opposite sex and same sex desires."

From Peter Tatchell's address to the L&H and LGBTQ+ Society upon receipt of the James Joyce Award, 21 September 2016.





This paper Roderic O'Gorman authored at DCU about furthering Trans rights suggests he is interested in furthering the LGBT agenda.


The Green Party in Germany:

>It’s not every day that a major European political party has to apologize for having supported pedophilia, but two weeks ago, the German Green Party had to do just that. For the past year and a half, investigators commissioned by the party have been probing its past associations with pro-pedophilia groups, and their report has been shocking to many Germans. It found that the German “pedosexual movement,” which advocated the legalization of “consensual” sex between adults and children, found a surprisingly warm reception in the party in the 1980s.

Fair enough.

But I will call him an adult displaying sexually explicit intentions for minors.
