IN Legislators Defund Kinsey Sexual Research Institute

May 15, 2023

Governor Eric Holcomb recently signed a two-year budget bill which includes the defunding of Indiana University’s sexual research institute founded by the late Dr. Alfred Kinsey who is known as the father of the sexual revolution. The methods Kinsey used were unethical, including sexual experiments and abuse on infants, and the statistically and scientifically fraudulent “data” is derived from serial child rapists, sex offenders, prisoners, prostitutes, pedophiles, and pederasts. 

HB 1001 specifies that taxpayer funds “may not be used to pay for the administration, operation, or programs of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction.” 

Rep. Lorissa Sweet introduced an amendment to the bill on February 22, 2023, to defund the research center founded by the Indiana University professor of entomology and zoology. In 1947, Kinsey founded the Institute for Sex Research at Indiana University, which is now known as the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. 

The Indiana House voted 53-34 to block state funding toward the Kinsey Institute that “continues to explore the complexities of sexual and gender diversity and variation in sexual and relationship experiences.” 

While introducing her amendment, Rep. Sweet criticized the Kinsey Institute for creating an app that allows users to anonymously post descriptions of sexual encounters along with their location so that researchers can track the activity across the globe. 

“By limiting the funding to Kinsey Institute through Indiana University’s tax dollars, we can be assured that we are not funding ongoing research committed by crimes,” Sweet said. “By doing such dastardly experiments on children, Kinsey ‘determined’ that children are sexual from birth, which is why our society now sexually exploits children at very young ages,” Rep. Sweet stated.

As part of his “Kinsey Reports,” Kinsey used the journal of a child rapist to record the rape of 196 children, which he referred to as “pre-adolescent sex play.” He claimed that the victims enjoyed the experience despite some having “violent convulsions” or “sobbing.” Table 34 in Kinsey’s book, “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male,” lists the number of orgasms of children, some as young as two, performed within a 24-hour period.

The late Dr. Judith Reisman was a visiting professor at Liberty University School of Law and documented the criminal abuse of more than 300 infants and children in the production of Kinsey’s research. These children were ages two months to 15 years. 

In 2019, as part of the American Psychological Association’s (APA) LGBT activist agenda, it created a task force to refute monogamous marriage and to normalize “consensual non-monogamous” relationships, which it refers to as Consensual Non-Monogamy (CNM). CNM includes polygamy and polyamory (group sexual relations, including “swinging.”) 

The task force’s “peer-reviewed and historic consensual non-monogamous (CNM) literature studies,” including research on polyamory by Ken Haslam, are based on the works of Kinsey. 

Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “Alfred Kinsey was a sexual pervert whose unscientific propaganda exploited women and harmed children. Kinsey should have been prosecuted for the vile abuse of children he catalogued in Table 34 of his first book published in 1948. His work is indefensible. Indiana University should disassociate itself from anything related to Alfred Kinsey.”
