Promoting Kinsey, Censoring Grandma
by Judith Reisman, Ph.D.

The release of Kinsey by the Fox/Murdoch conglomerate should alert those fighting for Judeo-Christian civilization that the battle lines in this war are treacherous indeed.
Judith Reisman, Ph.D., is the author of Kinsey: Crimes & Consequences.
On November 12, Fox Searchlight, a branch of Rupert Murdoch’s 20th Century Fox studios, releases Kinsey, the much-heralded film glorifying the life and work of Dr. Alfred C. Kinsey. The movie boasts the star power of Liam Neeson (Schindler’s List, Star Wars: Phantom Menace) as Dr. Kinsey and Laura Linney (Love Actually, Mystic River) as Kinsey’s wife, Clara. However, it isn’t the acting, the directing, or the “production values” that are creating all the media buzz about this supposedly must-see “biopic.” (I can tell you that authoritatively without having seen the film. Not that I didn’t try: I was prevented twice from previewing the movie. More on that in a moment.)
No, the major media have been hyping this movie to the skies because of its subjects: Kinsey himself and the “sexual revolution” that Kinsey was so instrumental in spawning. Kinsey has become a sort of god for the sex cult that dominates the higher circles of our major cultural and educational institutions: the media/entertainment cartel and academia. His sordid “research” forms the basis of their warped theology of human sexuality.
For these zealous cultists, Kinsey’s “sex science” tomes, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953), have become the new holy writ. They will not tolerate any facts that tarnish Kinsey’s deity status or that challenge his gospel of sexual license. However, the truth is out, the facts are undeniable. Kinsey’s sensational “research” turns out to be not scientific at all, but outright fraud. In order to undo traditional moral norms, Kinsey had to perpetrate the lie that all kinds of perverse sexual practices were “normal.” According to Kinsey, anything goes: promiscuity, pornography, prostitution, adultery, sodomy, pedophilia, group sex, sadomasochism, even incest. To support his outlandish claims, Kinsey intentionally skewed his population sample by secretly stacking his “research” with selected cohorts from the most sexually disordered populations: rapists, child molesters, prison inmates, homosexual activists, the “feeble minded,” and prostitutes.
This colossal fraud and the damage it has done should be, alone, sufficient to consign Kinsey to eternal infamy. However, the rest of the Kinsey story is far, far worse. Kinsey himself was a pornographically addicted, pedophile-promoting, bisexual sadomasochist. In the name of science, Kinsey and his “research” acolytes engaged in heinous criminal activity that would, even today in our more “liberated” society, get them sent to prison for a long time. Most horrid of all was Kinsey’s recruitment and protection of pedophiles who sexually tortured hundreds of children and even small infants.
However, don’t expect Kinsey’s crimes and unspeakable depravity to be mentioned in the avalanche of media accolades cascading around Fox’s Kinsey. On October 14, for instance, ABC’s Primetime Live bent the knee before the Kinsey altar, featuring a glowing interview with actress Laura Linney. Of course, ABC used titillating headlines to snare an audience: “‘Kinsey’ Star Talks About Sex Researcher” and “The Man Who Let a Nation Discuss Sex.” Why not something more accurate, such as, “Hollywood Glorifies Infamous Pedophile-promoting Professor”?
Kinsey has been shown at film festivals nationwide. Unable to attend these “hot” happenings, I tried to see the film — twice. On one occasion, Dr. Ted Baehr, publisher of MovieGuide, invited me to join him in Los Angeles at a private Kinsey screening arranged by Fox kingpin Rupert Murdoch. On September 20, I did join him, but suddenly, 20 minutes into the film, the screen went black. We were told Kinsey could not be screened. The projectionist, “Josh,” had just gotten a call from “higher up” and was told to axe the film.
Really? Why? Josh said he was told to say the film was damaged. He refused to do that. Both he and an elder statesman projectionist in the room were outraged. The elder stated, “I’ve never seen a thing like this in the 40 years I have been here.” The younger agreed. He’d never seen a film suppressed like this before. No, the film was not axed by “bluenosed censors.” It was censored by Fox Searchlight.
On October 1, Ted Baehr issued a press release on our blackout entitled, “Curious: Kinsey Screening May Have Been Cancelled Because of Grandmother.” The release noted that the Kinsey revolution is a “flimsy house of cards” in danger of collapse since “Dr. Judith Reisman exposed the quackery and pedophilic perversity of Kinsey’s research.” Ted opined that we were shut out because “Judith Reisman” was the “expert” who could expose the truth. Perhaps. A few days later Fox Searchlight rescheduled, and on October 5, I flew to L.A. again for the Fox screening. One hour before the appointed time, Fox called and canceled us again. This time, they said that since Ted had criticized the film, they would not allow us to view it.
The release of Kinsey by the “conservative” Fox/Murdoch conglomerate should alert those fighting the hedonist Kinseyite onslaught against Judeo-Christian civilization that the battlegrounds and battle lines in this war are treacherous indeed.
