Ben Levin case shines light on name-callers

Once upon a time, crimes such as child pornography were reviled.

Back in the day, child pornography was a heinous crime. We labelled people who lusted after sex with children, “kiddy diddlers” and they were social outcasts. Apparently, that’s hopelessly out of date.

Now we worry about them and their families.

Now kiddy diddling is “inter generational sex” and in some quarters it’s not just defended — it’s celebrated.

Wynne finally put out a statement distancing herself from Levin on Wednesday.

“I was shocked to hear about these charges through the news on Monday. Insidious crimes like these are absolutely terrifying. The safety and well-being of our children have always been my absolute priority and at no time did I have any suspicion of criminal behaviour. I am confident that the police and judicial system will address these serious allegations,” Wynne said in a statement.
