Internet provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos – now uninvited as a CPAC keynote speaker – is under fire after he was captured on video advocating “cross generational” sexual relationships between boys and older men.

The American Conservative Union has now rescinded its invite for Milo to speak at CPAC – a major gathering of prominent conservatives – as the outrage grows over the videotaped comments about 13-year-old boys and older men. Yiannopoulos resigned from the conservative site Breitbart on February 21, and Simon & Schuster cancelled his upcoming book. Milo held a press conference at 3 p.m. on February 21 in New York City.

Watch it here. He admitted he made “outrageous” statements but said he was being targeted unfairly. He apologized to “other victims of abuse” for his comments and pledged to continue advocating for free speech. He also said he has an upcoming new media venture planned, and he revealed he was molested when he was underage by two men.

What did he say, though, in the video that provoked the outrage in the first place?

Here’s the full transcript of the video making the rounds on social media. The comments were made on the Drunken Peasants podcast. (Spots with a “…” indicate where people talked over each other or it was unintelligible. Otherwise, this is the word-for-word transcript of what Milo said.)

Milo: “This is a controversial point of view I accept. We get hung up on this kind of child abuse stuff to the point where we’re heavily policing even relationships between consenting adults, you know grad students and professors at universities.”

The men in the joint video interview then discuss Milo’s experience at age 14.

Another man says: “The whole consent thing for me. It’s not this black and white thing that people try to paint it. Are there some 13-year-olds out there capable of giving informed consent to have sex with an adult, probably…”

The man says, “The reason these age of consent laws exist is because we have to set some kind of a barometer here, we’ve got to pick some kind of an age…”

Milo: “The law is probably about right, that’s probably roughly the right age. I think it’s probably about okay, but there are certainly people who are capable of giving consent at a younger age, I certainly consider myself to be one of them, people who are sexually active younger. I think it particularly happens in the gay world by the way. In many cases actually those relationships with older men…This is one reason I hate the left. This stupid one size fits all policing of culture. (People speak over each other). This sort of arbitrary and oppressive idea of consent, which totally destroys you know understanding that many of us have. The complexities and subtleties and complicated nature of many relationships. You know, people are messy and complex. In the homosexual world particularly. Some of those relationships between younger boys and older men, the sort of coming of age relationships, the relationships in which those older men help those young boys to discover who they are, and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable and sort of a rock where they can’t speak to their parents. Some of those relationships are the most -”

It sounds like Catholic priest molestation to me, another man says, interrupting Milo.

Milo:
“And you know what, I’m grateful for Father Michael. I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him.”

Other people talk. Oh my God, I can’t handle it, one man says. The next thing in line is going to be pedophilia…says another man.

Milo: “You’re misunderstanding what pedophilia means. Pedophilia is not a sexual attraction to somebody 13-years-old who is sexually mature. Pedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty. Pedophilia is attraction to people who don’t have functioning sex organs yet. Who have not gone through puberty. Who are too young to be able (unclear and cut off by others)…That’s not what we are talking about. You don’t understand what pedophilia is if you are saying I’m defending it because I’m certainly not.”

Another man said, “You are advocating for cross generational relationships here, can we be honest about that?”

Milo: “Yeah, I don’t mind admitting that. I think particularly in the gay world and outside the Catholic church, if that’s where some of you want to go with this, I think in the gay world, some of the most important, enriching and incredibly life affirming, important shaping relationships very often between younger boys and older men, they can be hugely positive experiences for those young boys. They can even save those young boys, from desolation, from suicide (people talk over each other)… providing they’re consensual.”

Here’s the video:

Some people immediately demanded that CPAC pull his invite. Politico reported on February 18: “Controversial author and Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference.” CPAC moved swiftly to yank the invite.

Milo posted a response entitled “a note for idiots” on Facebook after the video began widely circulating on social media. He claimed circulated videos were selectively edited and denounced pedophilia. You can read it here:

He posted again on February 20:

  1. Put a fork in him, he’s done. No matter how he wants to ‘rework’ his comments, he said what he said, unbelievable as the words are when we hear them coming right out of his mouth in at least two separate interviews (one with Joe Rogan, as well as the interview quoted here, and another longer cut I haven’t heard where he supposedly talks about children as young as twelve or thirteen according to those who have heard it). It is very much a characteristic of narcissism to believe that you are so much smarter than the average person that you can talk your way out of anything. However, these words of Milo’s were recorded, and he goes on at length in a very insistent way with Joe Rogan about his experience with and support of pedophilia. By the way, I have been out as a lesbian for over 25 years and this is the FIRST time in my life that I have ever heard any gay man staunchly defend and endorse pedophilia as Milo does here (p.s. one of the favorite defenses of pedophilia by sexual predators is to break it down into sectional age groups and say that above a certain age it doesn’t qualify as pedophilia. To the contrary, under the law, it does.) I take great, great umbrage with MIlo’s inference that this practice is ‘part of the gay world’. No, it may have been part of his world, but the gay men I have known throughout my life since I came out in my early twenties (I am 48 now) have dated, loved, and slept with other ADULT males, NOT CHILDREN. Milo ought to be ashamed for going on at length in support of pedophilia several times in different interviews, but it is clear he has no shame.

    • You know that this information and these will make no difference to the Trumpanzees. They voted for a self-admitted rapist.

      • But you know that if a liberal or moderate had made such statements, Trump supporters would have tarred, feathered, and killed him by now.

          • You are naive or lying. Trump supporters have, in my experience , spoken of violence to the point of ethnic cleansing. Read some comments inn Breitbart or American Renaissance, and then stop lying.

            • What do you mean like Lena Dunham wrote about molesting her sister when she was a child ? Or George Takei talking on Howard Stern about almost the exact same thing as Milo, about his first gay experience at 13 with an older man and not thinking it was pedophilia ?

          • if these snowflakes keep it up they might just learn what actual violence is. they dont understand the force that hides behind the conservatives in this country. snowflakes can break windows that nobody is protecting, but they havent been confronted by a brutal redneck thats 400lb of straight muscle that can literally rip their head from their body like opening a gallon of milk. snowflake need to watch their mouths. this can end badly for them

          • And they shouldnt ? Where do you draw the line ? How old were the 3 refugees in Twin Falls who sexually assaulted a 5 year old girl and videoed it , 7,10,14 . Should they be charged with any crime ? One of them is 7 the same age as Lena claims she was in the book. A case in Australia now, a 10 year old boy has been charged with rape. Please tell me where do you draw the line, what age ?

        • You do realize of course that a conservative made these statements and he was effectively tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail. He lost his job. He lost his book deal. He lost his speaking appearance. His career is effectively over. Tell me again how Trump supporters treated him any differently than they would have a liberal or a moderate.

        • I beg to differ! Comments from further down prove that they have good arguments why there are diffrences between, for example, Sarah Nyberg – who herself repeatedly fantasized about children of 8 years and younger or Lena Dunham, who told about herself molesting her 7yr old sister: ” Everything sexual predator might do to woo a small suburban girl I was trying.” Remember how many people rushed in to say that it was perfectly normal if a FEMALE (males are still rapists) teenager was “experimenting” with her sister, who wasn’t even half her age? Milo on the other hand, never took advantage of anyone else in this way. He never talked about small children. He just generalized his own experiences as a teenager.
          Or as another comment elaborated:

          Amanda says:
          February 20, 2017 at 10:11 pm

          1.) Legal age of consent varies around the world. Milo is from Europe. In Europe it is at least sixteen, with fifteen or fourteen in the majority of countries. Discussing those issues is not a major offense there. For those countries freedom of speech actually still has a meaning. The most countries that are as strict or stricter than the US on the issue, are usually muslim countries.

          2.) For instance: The legal age of consent is 14 in countries like Germany, Italy, Austria, Portugal etc. But discussing if a law should be changed through democratic process, because in our times even a 13 year old can probaly give informed consent – especially since so many western countries think they can at age 14 – is promoting pedophilia?

          3.) If you think that early sex is harmful and legal consent can’t be given, then please remember: If Milo experiened sex at an very early age, before being legally able to consent, he is clearly first and foremost a victim. If he coped with being abused by gloryfying this experience in a kind of “Sexual Stockholm Syndrome” way, that can’t be hold against him. In this context, blaiming him of promoting pedophilia is just victim-blaiming, plain and simple.

          4.) Pedophila is not the same as abuse. Pedophilia is not a sexual attraction to somebody 13-years-old who is sexually mature. Pedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty. Pedophilia is attraction to people who don’t have functioning sex organs yet. Claiming Milo promotes pedophila means purposefully defaming him.

          5.) The US law is of course the best in the world. Sending an 18 year old teenager to prison, making him a registred sex offender – the same way as a sixty year old who molested a baby girl – just because he crossed an inner US state border to, for instance, Arizona, before he had sex with his 17 year old girlfriend is soo much better and such a realistic view of teenage sexuality. Oh, all those teenage pedophiles out there attracted to 17 year old boys and girls. (The girls and boys themselves foremost.) Horrible!

        • Watch the joe rogan podcast with Alex Jones liberals are constantly getting it took down but it just shows proof of so many of the liberals in very deep with a huge child prostitution ring yet nobody talks about and before I say this in not defending milo his comments made me want to throw up aswell although he didn’t say 13 it was 17 #fake news and he was raped not the rapist unlike the dirt you people support ty

      • You ignorant twathammer. Trump never admitted to raping anyone, and the one person who accused him of rape had the case dismissed three days before the election for lack of evidence.

        • You can do anything…you can grab them by the pussy (without consent) = assault
          I moved on that bitch…
          Good to see you character thinks that type of behavior is okay. I love the whole party of religion family value thing now thinks that behavior is super cool!

          • What he means by that comment, no matter how out of context it is seen differently, is that if you have enough money, ‘some’ women will fall over you offering anything and everything of themselves up while giggling about it in hopes that some of that money will be passed their way, or that just being seen with such a money rich man will win them favor and high esteem with their other women/girl friends in their group. A lot of women in her part of our society. They are also referred to as bimbos. Explain the women in the 1960’s who acted the same about the Beatles or slept with the members of the rolling stones, animals, etc. other groups.

          • So he was bragging about groupies who want to be with famous people, and? That speaks to the character of those women as well not just the famous people that accept that attention. I personally think he was exaggerating about how many groupies he actually had. In the same conversation he mentions trying to court another woman who turned him down and he was fine with it. That is not the character of what you guys want to portray him as.

      • Incorrect. I voted for Trump and I’ll be the first to say that Milo’s words here are disgusting. This is not OK and it’s not defensible.

        It’s also sad. Milo was clearly victimized as a child and has a skewed view of sex as a result. We should not be justifying what he said and we should not be defending it, but he should be seeking help.

      • self admitted rapist? itd be nice if stupid people like you actually had evidence to support such a slandering claim. you know trump can actually sue you for slander or defamation of character, im thinking this is why you stayed anonymous? oh no youre too stupid to understand that slandering a very rich man is a very bad idea. youre one of those idiots that admits to murdering someone on social media. order a salad from dominos and shut your mouth before you end up in federal prison owing a rich man more money than you will ever have in your pathetic worthless life

    • pedophilia
      sexual perversion in which children are the preferred sexual object; specifically : a psychological disorder in which an adult has sexual fantasies about or engages in sexual acts with a prepubescent child

      Milo never suggested that he condones or supports sexual relationships nor has fantasies about prepubescent children. Not once. Maybe you should learn the definition of the words you use before you attempt to support blatant character assassination.

      • Milo assassinated his own character in an attempt to normalize relationships between children and adult males. These words are on tape in three separate interviews. Denial, like they say, is not a river in Egypt.

    • lgbtp is coming. the argument that homosexuals are born sexually attracted to the same sex, and dont have a choice, could be used for pedophiles as well. they dont have a choice, they are born thinking its okay to have sex with little kids. the argument itself is the problem. crazy people are crazy and they shouldnt be advocating for respect or rights. they should be embarrassed. society should let them know that they are disgusting. in fact most countries dont condone lgbt community. probably because its just wrong. were murderers just born that way? were thieves just born that way? maybe, but we shouldnt be sticking up for them. they deserve punishment of some kind. for the record though gays should have equal rights. they arent commiting a crime. the problem is the argument itself. it is a bad one and people should see that.

    • he isnt supporting pedophilia, if you understand what hes saying, hes just stating that the line isnt black and white when it comes to sexual maturity. Also if you want people to have civil debates on taboo topics which need to be had, you cannot simply dismiss controversial opinions simply because they aren’t traditional.

  2. It seems to me that Milo’s comment could be equally applied to how messed up our sex offender laws have become.
    There are true and real pedophiles and perverts who are irredeemable.
    Our political correctness can now cause a 19 year old boy to be forever labeled as a sex offender for having sex with a young girl under 18 – not only ridiculous, but it reduces our effectiveness in dealing with the true perverts.
    Milo speaks his mind – but it’s far worse that the media spins and distorts the message to support their own agenda.
    If anyone has a 13 year old kid and allows them to listen to the garbage rap and crap of so called artists like Beyonce… they are far more guilty of contributing to the perversion of a minor than is Milo

  3. 1.) Legal age of consent varies around the world. Milo is from Europe. In Europe it is at least sixteen, with fifteen or fourteen in the majority of countries.

  4. Ahhhh, I see what’s happened. Milo is a devote Catholic, completely in LOVE with the church, and because of that he’s blindly defending Priests. Tisc tisc Milo you really need to get away from that evil religion. He seems to be clarifying that its alright only for those who have reached puberty…I don’t agree, unless the partner is in VERY close age relation (5 years MAXIMUM) Tis tis Milo you’ve gotten yourself in trouble this time. I DO find it a little odd though, because you hear people on the Left defending pedophilia all the time. But certainly can’t defend him in this. He was sexually assualted by his Preist when he was 14. I think this is coming from that, and his blind obdiance to the church that’s BRAINWASHED into them from birth, and its this that’s making him try to defend a monster.

    • homosexuals arent good Christians and arent allowed to hold rank in the church because of their admitted and currently practiced sin. you dont know anything and for that i can give you a piece of scripture, mathew 7:1. maybe if you actually attempt to understand the scripture, you will know what im saying although i seriously doubt you have the mental ability to do this sufficiently.

    • Milo is not a devout Catholic. If he was raped by his priest, that is far worse than a rape outside the church, though all sex without consent is an abomination before God and man.

      Milo is not a Christian. His sexual decadence, open homosexuality, and arrogance are clear facts that he is not a Christian. The clergyman that allegedly raped him should be hanged from the Vatican’s gallows (and I don’t know why they don’t try to extradite them to the Vatican since they answer to the Pope). Homosexual pedophiles infiltrated the Catholic Church (and other Christian denominations) because 1) that’s where the little boys are, 2) plenty of corridors, rooms, and excuses to get to the boys, and 3) to destroy the Catholic Church and the Christian worldview that declares pedoes to be monsters and homosexuality to be an abomination. I am specifically talking about homosexual PEDOPHILES, that is, pedophiles who prey on and rape members of the same biological sex.

      You cannot be a Christian if you are openly gay and willingly engage in sodomy and other sexual immorality. Sodomy and the homosexual lifestyle is explicitly declared to be an abomination to God. To be gay and Christian, you must fight your attractions and remain in total celibacy, because all homosexual acts are always sinful. However, there may be times that a Christian battling homosexual attractions succumbs to their lust: in that case, God is always ready and willing to forgive their sins if they sincerely repent and make an effort not to do it again.

      Some people on my side forget that God loves all people, even those who are not innocent, and even those awash in sin.

  5. I don’t know if Milo has to defend anything as long as he is clear that his definition of pedophilia is more precise than the generally accepted definition, which would mean anything under the age of consent. Milo is saying that there might be some gray area there. But he had previously supported the age of consent. I don’t particularly like this topic or the whole can of worms it opens. I don’t like the inroads on proscriptions against pedophilia that this discussion could represent, in direct contrast to what many alt-righters are saying about pedophilia being the next area in which we will drop our contraints … I don’t think we should. But Milo is a free thinker, and he is bringing another point of view to the table. It’s just a little much for most people. And had he thought about it twice, he might have edited his own comments a little better. But, basically, he is speaking his truth, and I do respect that.

  6. He is speaking from his own experience as a 14yo, likely having relations with older men. He is accurate in the terminology–while the age of consent is 16 and 18 in the US, and thus illegal, it is not considered “pedophilia” after adolescence. Look it up. Additionally, gay relationships are subject to various prejudicial legislation, social stigmas, that can, as mentioned, without support, lead to many mental and social issues in adulthood, assuming the subject makes it that far. I’m afraid this is yet another case of hysterical corporate bodies fearing for their wallets–in other words, protest works.

  7. This is a subject that most people cannot have a reasonable discussion on, even more so when it involves a figure such as Yiannopoulos. He is off the mark, however, claiming that liberals are somehow to blame for the idea of an age of consent and a policing of culture. The right is well known to be — and quite proud to be — a policer of private morality, especially when it comes to sex. But I wonder if Yiannopoulos were straight and talked about having sex with older women he would be getting the same blowback from the right. Of course, in our current age, any facts that seem inconvenient can be labeled fake news.

  8. He will say he has a problem, get help, write a book about how its not his fault, be forgiven, and get back to being a douche bag trying to make a name and some money being a troll and offering nothing of substance.

  9. I kept hearing about how he defended pedos…
    Finally found the transcript. He is 100% right, age 13 is some random number. Some people can give consent, some can not. The world is not a one size fits all.

  10. I don’t see what he said was wrong. It’s been known that MOST homosexuals have their first sexual experience well below the age of consent with that of a much older Adult. But if you people really wanted to protect Children (1-17) from pedophilia, then you’d have to make sex illegal for all age groups. Even if it’s between two children below the age of 18. I don’t see how two 12 year olds going at it is ok, I don’t see them being protected in any way more than a 12 year old and a 30 year old. Hell at least if they were having sex with an adult, there’s someone old enough to take care of the child if a pregnancy occurs.

  11. Given that Milo was raped either as a young teen or as a child by a homosexual man, that probably explains why he is gay today. Many victims of homosexual molestation end up having same-sex attractions themselves because of the trauma and the lack of knowledge of anyhing else. Murder only destroys the body. Rape, pedophilia, and child molestation destroys the soul.
