TEDx talk under review

An independently organized TEDx event recently posted, and subsequently removed, a talk from the TEDx YouTube channel that the event organizer had titled: “Why our perception of pedophilia has to change.” 

We were not aware of this organizer’s actions, but understand now that their decision to remove the talk was at the speaker’s request for her safety.

In our review of the talk in question, we at TED believe it cites research open for serious misinterpretation.

TED does not support or advocate for pedophilia.

We are now reviewing the talk to determine how to move forward.

Until we can review this talk for potential harm to viewers, we are taking down any illegal copies of the talk posted on the Internet.
