Translated from Pädophilie ohne Gretzen, edited by Dr. Frits Bernard
As the analysis of the media-driven campaign against pedophiles shows, it is based on stereotypical notions. Prejudice makes easy work of it, because man has an inborn tendency to develop prejudices. He is in fact inclined towards generalization and so called clichés, or else has constructed and expressed undifferentiated categories. So for example: The young people of today are lazy. The reality is simplified and summarized into a kind of photograph. In quite general terms one could say that pre-judgment is a judgment which one makes without objective criteria, and which does not subsequently get verified or corrected. It is a sham verdict, which is usually negative. There is, admittedly, also a positive and subjective inclination towards overly favorable assessments.
