A brief history of field trials of the DSM diagnostic criteria for paraphilias.


Some of these critiqueshave argued, implicitly or explicitly, that the proposed criteria would represent a disimprovement over the current ones (e.g.,First, 2010). The casual reader would suppose that such com-parisons must be based on a solid foundation of knowledge about the performance of the current criteria. It is therefore instructive to review one of the most important sources of infor-mation about the reliability and v alidity of DSM diagnoses—thefield trials conducted as ‘‘[a]n i mportant step’’ (American Psy-chiatric Association, 1980, p. 467) in each major revision.

The field trials for DSM-III, whichwere sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health ,included three patients with paraphilias (Appendix F, Tables1and 2, pp. 470–471).That’s it. Paraphilia diagnoses were not included in the fieldtrials for DSM-III-R (American Psychiatric Association, 1987,Appendix F, pp. 493–495) or for DSM-IV (see O’Donohue,Regev,H some, for example, were incarcerated sex offenderswhereas otherswerereferredas outpatients(see Blanchard etal.,2007). The sample sizes were comparable to the numbers ofpatients used to study all of the psychiatric disorders targeted inthe field trials for DSM-III (American Psychiatric Association,1980, Appendix F, Tables1 and 2, pp. 470–471) and DSM-III-R(AmericanPsychiatric Association,1987,Appendix F,pp. 493–495).

Report: cartoon paedophilia harmless

Cartoons and drawings depicting paedophilia do not encourage people to commit child sex offences in real life, a report by experts who treat sexual problems concludes.

The report, carried out by Sexologisk Klinik, which is a part of Rigshospitalet, was ordered by the former justice minister, Lars Barfod (Konservative), after the Socialdemokraterne, then in opposition, demanded a ban on drawings and animations of children being sexually abused.

At the time, the current social affairs minister, Karen Hækkerup (Socialdemokraterne), argued that drawn representations of paedophilia could act as a stepping stone to actual child abuse.

“People with paedophile tendencies get drawn into this visual universe and after some time lose the satisfaction with just looking at the pictures,” Hækkerup said, according to Information newspaper. “They will want to try it.”

The subsequent Sexologisk Klinik report could not support Hækkerup’s claims, however.

“We have had to acknowledge that there is no evidence that the use of fictive images of sexual assaults on children alone can lead people to conduct sexual assaults on children,” the report to the Justice Ministry states.

Jacob Mchangama, director of legal affairs at the liberal think tank Cepos, welcomed the verdict.

“It’s gratifying that we now have documentation that as far as we are aware there is no connection between animated child pornography and actual crimes, meaning there is no need to further criminalise this area,” Mchangama told Information. “The whole affair is a classic example of something catching the eye of a politician who finds a need to symbolically change the law without actually looking at the facts.”

Flemming Møller Mortensen, the Socialdemokraterne culture spokesperson, also welcomed the report.

“It is good that the Sexologisk Klinik has looked into this,” Møller told Information. “As long as it cannot be proven that these drawings encourage damaging behaviour then I think we ought to protect freedom of speech and artistic expression.”

Pornographic drawings of children are illegal in Sweden and Norway but not in Denmark.


Pedophile beaten to death by angry preschool parents


When a pedophile convicted of molesting five preschool children was released from jail after just four years behind bars, a group of angry parents reportedly took the law into their own hands and beat him to death.

Marcelo Fabian Pecollo was arrested in 2007 for abusing a 4-year-old child, reports AFP, which led to six more cases coming to light. Five of those cases went forward in court and he was later found guilty and sentenced in 2010 to 30 years in prison. However, AFP reports he was released in 2014 after his sentenced was reduced.

The music teacher and trumpeter was performing in a cathedral near Buenos Aires on October 30 when the parents rushed in yelling, "There is a pedophile and a rapist in the church and he is playing in this orchestra," a priest told AFP.

The angry parents chased down Pecollo and began to attack him. A witness told AFP one parent hit Pecollo with his own trumpet.

He later died from his injuries.
