A Texas professor who has previously argued in favor of lowering the age of consent and reducing punishments for pedophiles has fled women-led protests against his controversial work.
Thomas Hubbard, a Classics professor at The University of Texas in Austin, fled his home and was placed under police protection, according to Incendiary News.
Protesters flooded his driveway carrying a large banner with the message that read, ” “Professor Thomas Hubbard: Pedophile.”
The protesters chanted “Thomas Hubbard is a creep! Keep an eye out when you sleep!” and “When women and children are under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back!”
The incident prompted the academic to flee his home.
Hubbard, who has had work published by the controversial NAMBLA–North American Man Boy Love Association–, has faced accusations of pedophilia and misogyny for his inflammatory work.
Law Enforcement Today wrote:
Hubbard has written about pederasty, which was a “prominent social phenomenon in numerous ancient Greek cultures” where men and boys had “relationships.” In this case, sexual relationships.
Hubbard has written that “contemporary American legislation premised on children’s incapacity to ‘consent’ to sexual relations stems from outmoded gender constructions and ideological preoccupations of the late Victorian and Progressive Era.”
Part of Hubbard’s argument involves the restrictive nature of the laws of consent–the fact that they prohibit the liberation of those boys’ sexualities.
According to Law Enforcement Today, another suggestion the classicist made was for fatherless boys to patch over their lack of a father by having male role models lay with them–in a pre-modern sense.

In his writing, this bozo argues that Ancient Greece showed us that “where age discrepant relationships are commonplace and positively reinforced, they cause little or no long-term harm to the younger partner and often confer great benefit,” he writes.
This was contained in a 22-page article Hubbard wrote for a journal called Thymos, entitled “Sexual Consent and the Adolescent Male, or What Can We Learn From the Greeks.”
Hubbard also led a class called “Mythology of Rape,” where he invited participants to share their experiences with sexual assault.
One student reportedly said:
“He also had us write a paper over lowering the age of consent and lowering the punishment for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 6 (apparently 6 and under don’t know assault is bad, they only think it is bad later on because they are told it is bad). We were also asked our sexual preferences in class and asked if we ever had a desire to be raped.”
Sadly, this isn’t the first time representatives of higher education have made similar pronouncements.
Last year, a San Diego College was reportedly teaching pedophilia as a sexual orientation.
Many other schools have begun to implement radical sexual lifestyles into their curricula–usually under the guise of promoting tolerance or understanding.
