Antigay Terrorist and Founder of “Occupy Pedophilia” Hightails It Out of Russia

Russian neo-Nazi and antigay terrorist Maxim Martsinkevich, known as Tesak (“Machete”), announced on his website yesterday that he has fled Russia “on an urgent vacation” to avoid criminal charges of “extremism.”

Martsinkevich gained notoriety earlier this year for his viral video movement called “Occupy Pedophilia,” in which he used internet chatrooms to lure young gay men into what they thought were sexual encounters with teenagers, then filmed himself confronting them and beating them up. (Martsinkevich also created a spin-off series that targets older gay men called “Occupy Gerontophilia.”)

The charges are believed to be based on a video Martsinkevich filmed in Ukraine last month in which he trapped, humiliated and beat a gay Iraqi man.

In the highly disturbing 20-minute video, Martsinkevich confronts the man who is expecting to have sex with a 15 year old boy. Martsinkevich disrupts the man in the middle of a shower, drags him naked into a hallway, beats him, shaves his head, then paints a rainbow on his head and a Jewish star across his chest, and forces him to make a “confession.”

Martsinkevich posted the letter he received from authorities on his website. According to the document, the charges were filed last Thursday after “specialists” from the Russian Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology decided the offending video contained “elements of racial and ethnic enmity and hatred” against “the social groups ‘pedophiles’ and ‘Iraqi gays.’”

The document covers the video of the incident but not the act itself. In other words: Had Martsinkevich simply terrorized the man, it would have been fine. But because he filmed it, authorities are taking action.

On Sunday Martsinkevich uploaded a picture of himself of the beach in Thailand, where he is believed to be hiding for the time being.

      I seriously think this is some sick fetish that guy has I mean hes doing all that to gay people some of them under age. Seems like hes the pedo also if you look at his blog he has a lot of shirtless pictures of himself. Not saying you have to be gay to do that but having your own internet serious with a mixture of the shirtless pictures. Hightens the possiblies. What a sick man. I hate people like that. The only people Im tolerant of are intolerant people they make me sick. I feel for the victims :(

      Because Queerty is ostensibly an advocate for LGBT rights, it confuses me that it would further perpetuate the suffering of victims of abuse by posting images of them. I understand that the world needs to know about the terrible things that are happening in Russia, but Queerty should at least have the decency to blur out the faces of victims. This only furthers their humiliation.

      Honest question: what kind of guy has sex with a 15-year-old boy. Isn’t that paedophilia? Not that I support the actions of Martsinkevich.

      @vocodr: You’re correct. And I agree, Martsinkevich had no right to do what he did, and there is no place for vigilante justice in civilized society. But if this so-called victim truly had the intention of taking advantage of a fifteen-year-old, then frankly, he had it coming.

      @vocodr: No, that’s not paedophilia. Paedophilia is a sexual preference for prepubescent children, not pubescent children.

      A sexual preference for pubescent teens (15-19) is ephebophilia. And let’s not pretend that anyone who has sex with someone between the ages of 15 and 19 necessarily has a pathological orientation or paraphilia.

      After all, age of consent in many places is 16. It was 14 in Canada until recently.
      _____

      @Fawkes: Vocodr is wrong. And so are you. That wasn’t vigilante justice and no one deserves to be tortured.

      It’s so revealing that you, in the span of two sentences, say that Martsinkevich had no right to do what he did and then directly contradict yourself.

      If you think the guy should have been beaten because he was lured into what he probably thought was a consensual hook-up (I’m not judging the legality of the hook-up) with a 15 year old (no proof that that’s the true story), just say so and don’t try to look like a moral character by both disapproving of a torturer’s actions and then agreeing with their necessity. It’s duplicitous and pathetic. If you agree with torture, stand by that conviction.

To your point about it being “consensual,” if in fact he was looking for a hook-up with a fifteen-year-old, it could not possibly be consensual, because a child is incapable of consenting. And enough of this nonsensical distinction between “pedophilia” and “ephebophilia.” They are both immoral and involve taking advantage of children who are unable to make decisions for and defend themselves. Martsinkevich is garbage and I hope he spends the rest of his life behind bars. But that doesn’t mean every gay person is a saint, either.

      That first thing, that ends with a period? That sentence isn’t a question. And it’s clear you were being rhetorical. Don’t insult yourself by pretending otherwise.

      I didn’t get “shot down”, someone from NAMBLA had a hissy fit. That’s all.

      Not from NAMBLA. Not having a ‘hissy fit’. I made a point of fact.

      @Fawkes:

      I don’t see what’s contradictory in what I said.

      This does not surprise me.

      I am against torture,

      Really? Because you wrote:

      if this so-called victim truly had the intention of taking advantage of a fifteen-year-old, then frankly, he had it coming.

      And what did he have coming? Presumably you are referring to what Martsinkevich did to him.

      So, you are for torture, if it’s deserved (as we’ll see).

      but that doesn’t mean I have to feel sympathy if a sexual predator is the victim of torture.

      So, you say you are against torture, but if someone you don’t like gets tortured, then it’s okay that they were tortured or, at least, you don’t need to feel bad that something you’re against was visited against them?

      You could have said that from the get-go, then I’d just have noted that you’re reprehensible instead of also stupid.

      To your point about it being “consensual,” if in fact he was looking for a hook-up with a fifteen-year-old, it could not possibly be consensual, because a child is incapable of consenting.

      You’ll note how I specifically noted that I wasn’t judging the legality of such a hook-up. Of course, legally, if the age of consent in Russia is above 15, a 15 year old could not, in a legalistic sense, consent. Being a child or not has nothing to do with it.

      And enough of this nonsensical distinction between “pedophilia” and “ephebophilia.”

      It’s not nonsensical. They are meaningful distinctions between paraphilias.

      They are both immoral and involve taking advantage of children who are unable to make decisions for and defend themselves.

      Umm …no. A person who has ephebophilia, for instance, can definitely find partners who are above the age of consent (even in some of the most conservative places around) and have sex with them without taking advantage of them. It’s a specific paraphilia to do with sexual attraction to teens between about 15 and 19. The age of consent across most of the West is 16. This isn’t rocket science.

      Paedophilia and hebophilia, on the other hand, would necessarily involve taking advantage of children. The actions against children of people so afflicted is terrible.

      Martsinkevich is garbage and I hope he spends the rest of his life behind bars.

      Yeah.

      But that doesn’t mean every gay person is a saint, either.

      @Thomathy: I know you’re an ignoramus and probably don’t know this, but pedophiles can be heterosexual or homosexual in addition to being a pedophile. For the record, usually when people try to be snide and sarcastic, usually some degree of intellect accompanies this, otherwise (as is true in your case), one simply sounds stupid and brutish. As far as me being “pro-torture” goes, you clearly are incapable of understanding nuance. I did not want Martsinkevich’s victim to be tortured and I am not glad that it happened. But I’m sure not going to shed a tear for some sexual predator who was tortured, just as he had intended to do to some fifteen year old boy by taking advantage of him sexually. However, I’m sure that point will once again go in one ear, though your empty head and out the other.

      On a separate note, your arguments are so immoral that the only thing that you can bring in to defend your position is some absurd distinction between classes of pedophiles and the fact that it’s only “pedophilia” if the law says it is. No, some things are intrinsically immoral regardless of what the age of consent is. If tomorrow the lunatics in DC decided to make the age of consent twelve (which I wouldn’t put past them), it wouldn’t suddenly make it okay for every pervert in the US to go out and have their way with children. An adult trying to lure a fifteen year old boy into sex is, and always will be, wrong.

      But keep sticking up for pedophiles (in this case, an alleged pedophile). You do a very good job of it. I can see why NAMBLA hired you.

      For one thing, the whole narrative of the victimss being pedophiles comes entirely from Martinkevitch and his cronies. It’s incredibly suspect.
      Secondly, notice how all the victims of Occupy have been gay men, black men, middle eastern men…
      Apparently there are no straight, white russian men who are pedophiles? Never mind the russian sex slave trade or huge russian child porn business whose victims are mostly underaged girls…
      Why doesn’t Occupy Pedophilia go after them?
      Because in Russia having sex with underaged girls with or without consent is considered normal.
      In conclusion, that means that Occupy pedophilia are pedophilis themselves and their crusade is entirely based on intimidating minorities. Though most of us already knew that

      Thanks for the advice?

      As far as me being “pro-torture” goes, you clearly are incapable of understanding nuance.

      That last phrase is going to be funny soon. Ironic, but funny.

      I did not want Martsinkevich’s victim to be tortured and I am not glad that it happened. But I’m sure not going to shed a tear for some sexual predator who was tortured,

      Is that the final statement you’ll make about that? Because it’s getting tiresome to read your contradictions and justifications for why it’s alright that a man was tortured even though you don’t like torture and didn’t want it to happen to him (but it’s alright that it did).

      just as he had intended to do to some fifteen year old boy by taking advantage of him sexually.

      Well, even if he were (and it’s definitely not certain that it’s really how this was presented to him), he didn’t. Instead, he was lured by a torturous bigot and, well, tortured.

      your arguments are so immoral that the only thing that you can bring in to defend your position is some absurd distinction between classes of pedophiles and the fact that it’s only “pedophilia” if the law says it is.

      Well, no. Paedophilia is defined variously in different jurisdictions colloquially and legally. I was not using the term in a legalistic sense. I wasn’t using any of those terms in a legalistic sense. My argument was not based around the law nor what the law says. And I wasn’t making an argument defending a particular paraphilia, I was pointing out a matter of fact.

      No, some things are intrinsically immoral regardless of what the age of consent is.

      This is a bizarre statement.

      If tomorrow the lunatics in DC decided to make the age of consent twelve (which I wouldn’t put past them)

      I’m going to guess you’re American. What about DC? I believe that age of consent is determined by States in the US and varies wildly around the country. Some states even maintain separate age of consent laws for ‘homosexual acts’ or ‘sodomy’.

      And DC isn’t going to change its age of consent to 12. You’re rather disturbed if you think the people who live there would allow it.

      it wouldn’t suddenly make it okay for every pervert in the US to go out and have their way with children.

      It certainly wouldn’t. It’s a good thing, then, that it’s the product of a wild imagination -yours.

      An adult trying to lure a fifteen year old boy into sex is, and always will be, wrong.

      Anyone trying to ‘lure’ anyone into sex is wrong. It’s deeply creepy and defies the notion of consent altogether.

      But keep sticking up for pedophiles (in this case, an alleged pedophile). You do a very good job of it. I can see why NAMBLA hired you.

      Why yes, in fact I have, which is exactly why I’ve come to the conclusion that you’re a defender of child rapists and torturers. You can demonize me for having a moral compass all you want. You’ll really have to forgive me for not being a moral relativist. All I said is that if the above victim really had intended to have sex with a child, I don’t feel sorry for what he got. There is such a thing as karma, and those who commit (or even possess the dark energy to commit) evil will eventually get a taste of their own medicine. For instance, while I oppose the death penalty, if a murderer breaks into someone’s house and the residents of the house kill him before they are themselves killed, I wouldn’t shed a tear at said potential murderer’s death. This isn’t hard to understand, except of course for those who sympathize with the guilty, rather than their victims.

      My thoughts are similar to that of Fawkes in this matter. (though probably not exact- honestly I didn’t read through all of the dialog) If I knew that the details of the meetup were completely accurate, and they were finding grown men interested in hooking up with 15 year olds, I too would be substantially less sympathetic. I still don’t think this would be the way to go about it, of course, and I do get filled with rage that these people are spreading violence, hate and lies about gays being pedophiles– but I do think it’s normal for people to be substantially less sympathetic towards those who have suffered due to shaky moral grounds they have placed themselves onto.
      But that doesn’t mean you would have CHOSEN for that to happen to them, and it doesn’t mean you support it.

      Either way, I do feel sympathy for the victims, and I do wish I could personally give the terrorizers a piece of my mind. But I also wish the victims hadn’t gotten into that kind of mess in the first place, because consent is a real issue and more people need to be aware of its implications.

      I don’t know whether the men who were lured into these apartments and beaten went there believing they were having sex with underage guys or not. However, I believe its the intention of this gang of thugs to give the impression that all gay men want to have sex with underage guys and therefore deserve to be beaten and abused regardless. This is a strategy that’s been used for years.

      I’m positive that if someone in Russia went online posing as a 15 year old girl looking to have sex with an adult male than there would be plenty of straight adult men in Russia who would take the bait.
