I truly fail to see your point of view on just about any issue. I do not
know if it is because of the language barrier or what but all of this seems
extremely absurd to me.

I do think that if they went for a conspiracy theory, such as moon landings
never occurring, aliens spying on us or such, they would have been laughed
out of the game.

Most of all: Because there isn't. Look at any major media reports and you
won't see any debates about the sexuality of babies. It's not an issue.
Infant means baby. Humans develop physical sexual ability at the age range
of 11-18 years of age. Babies are around 1 years old. I see no issue there.
Sexuality trough genes and psychology of course exists since we are born as
males and females... but what is the issue and where? Children are not
forced to hide their gender.
There is nothing preventing children/the young from having sex with each
other in Finland. Legal age of consent on the other hand, meaning age when
adults can have sex with the minor, is debatable in the 12-20 range, but I
am quite happy with it being at 16, since it works well. If you want to
legalize pedophilia, this is not the right political movement for you.

Our family and age laws mirror our social attitudes around here. There is
nothing preventing teens from shagging each other painfully, getting an
unwanted child and ruining their lives forever at the moment, so there is no
restriction of freedom that would need to be removed.

Umm what... 0_o
I do like how our army, which I and most of the adult members of PPFI serve
in as reserves, is able to monitor invaders in war. Destroying intelligence
services destroys the military, the police and so on. I do not want that.
Goverment and military agencies are not private businesses who market their
services to you and rely on there being something to work against.

I like to restrict people's ability to consume various poisons. Many Pirates
do not. It is a non-core issue and should not be taken a common stance on
and it is a dangerous issue that will certainly shift us from the party that
brings the new idea to everyone to a party than brings the new issue to half
of the interested people.

What do your really mean with all this? Legalizing pedophilia? Hell no.
Changing attitude of parents who spank their children for being interested
in the opposite sex? Not the work of a politician.

Pirate movement is strong BECAUSE people come to our conclusions from all
sides of political ideologies. Becoming the next haven for fringe movements
is what would end us.
Getting everyones interest because we are whom we are works. Wooing a
spesific group does not.
We work for freedom, not your personal angendas or ideas of it. There is a
difference beetween a shared goal and someone's private goals, and that is
why we should not let anyone include theirs in our program. Not me, nor you.
