L. Alvin Malesky is the author of a much quoted paper which alleged cognitive distortion in the BoyChat community.

Commentary

It is hard to take Malesky, his work and his conclusion of distorted thinking among pedophiles seriously. If a researcher believes that certain views concerning children and sexuality represent distorted thinking and then establishes that these views are common among a community of individuals known for holding different views concerning children and sexuality, it does not amount to a discovery or affirmation of the researcher's subjective beliefs.
