Michel Foucault oli ranskalainen filosofi ja "woke"-ideologian isiä. Intellektuelli Guy Sorman kertoi, miten asuessaan Tunisiassa Foucault harjoitti seksiä 8-10-vuotiaiden poikien kanssa. The Timesin mukaan journalistitkin tiesivät ja näkivät asian mutteivät kirjoittaneet siitä: Foucault oli filosofikuninkaan asemassa.
Foucault kannatti aikuisten ja lasten välistä suostumuksellista seksiä ja pedofiliaa ja piti niitä molempien vapautumisena. Hänen mukaansa nuoretkin lapset voivat antaa suostumuksen. Vuonna 1977 Foucault, Jean-Paul Sartre, Jacques Derrida ja eräät muut intellektuellit allekirjoittivat vetoomuksen parlamentille kaikkien lasten ja aikuisten välisten suostumuksellisten seksisuhteiden laillistamiseksi. Le Monde -lehteen hän kirjoitti kolmen seksistä lasten kanssa tuomitun puolustuskirjeen. Hänen teoksensa Seksuaalisuuden historia toisessa ja kolmannessa osassa pederastia ja "mahdollisuus rakastaa poikia" olivat "perustavassa roolissa". Windsor Star kuvasi Foucaultia "pedofiiliguruksi".
France-Amérique-lehdessä intellektuelli Guy Sorman sanoi, että Tunisiassa asuessaan Foucault harjoitti pedofiliaa maksamalla pikkupojille. Toisessa haastattelussa hän sanoi tämän olleen säännöllistä ja lasten olleen noin 8-10-vuotiaita. Hänen matkallaan oli paljon muitakin todistajia.

He may finally face justice", Los Angeles Times, 21 Feb 2020. “He references a moment when famous writers including Michel Foucault, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir and respected newspapers, notably Libération and Le Monde, defended the idea that sex with minors was a form of liberation for both parties.”

(en-US) “It has also shone a particularly harsh light on a period during which some of France's leading literary figures and newspapers —names as big as Foucault, Sartre, Libération and Le Monde —aggressively promoted the practice as a form of human liberation, or at least defended it.”
- Bittoun, Renee. "Odyssey of an obsessive", The Sydney Morning Herald, 21 Aug 1993. “The young Foucault may be forgiven [for] his Communist Party mistakes; he has not Malline:-- he may never be Malline:-- forgiven for his open support of the Khomeni regime in Iran, of pedophilia and, tacitly, of rape.”
- "France, Where Age of Consent Is Up for Debate", The Atlantic, 10 March 2018. “Under this interpretation of liberté, young children were empowered to find happiness in sexual relationships; their ability to consent was a foregone conclusion. Any effort to suggest otherwise would be a condescension, a disrespect to them as fully realized human beings. In a radio interview in 1978, Michel Foucault said of sex with minors that assuming "that a child is incapable of explaining what happened and was incapable of giving his consent are two abuses that are intolerable, quite unacceptable."”

Guardian Media Group. “"French law recognises in 12- and 13-year-olds a capacity for discernment that it can judge and punish," said a second petition signed by Sartre and De Beauvoir, along with fellow intellectuals Michel Foucault, Roland Barthes, Jacques Derrida; a leading child psychologist, Françoise Dolto; and writers Philippe Sollers, Alain Robbe-Grillet and Louis Aragon. "But it rejects such a capacity when the child's emotional and sexual life is concerned. It should acknowledge the right of children and adolescents to have relations with whomever they choose."”
- Kearns, Madeleine. "The Problem with Cuties", National Review, 13 Sep 2020. “I hate to say it but it's not in the least bit surprising that this is a French film. In the 1970s, key thinkers of the French intelligentsia — Michel Foucault, Roland Barthes, Simone de Beauvoir, and Jean-Paul Satre among them — published an open letter in Le Monde, a leading French newspaper, defending three men who had been charged with having sex with children under 15.”

ISSN 14780542. “The example of Ancient Greek pederasty also served a foundational role in Michel Foucault's History of Sexuality, which provides the theoretical basis for most of the historiography of American sexuality. Foucault conceptualized the History of Sexuality as a multi‐volume series that would extend from the Ancient Greeks through modern times, although he died before he could complete the work. The first and best‐known volume in the series introduced the project. Volume 2, The Use of Pleasure, examined Ancient Greece. Foucault sought to understand not simply why “the Greeks practiced, accepted, and valued relations between men and boys” but why they crafted a system of ethics that regulated this sexual practice. According to Foucault, “what is historically singular is not that the Greeks found pleasure in boys, nor even that they accepted this pleasure as legitimate; it is that this acceptance of pleasure was not simple, and that it gave rise to a whole cultural elaboration”.”
- "Foucault's Body" (March 1994). Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy 6 (1-2): 59-75. “Take for example, the tentative, neutral, dispassionate, seientific description of pederasty, the love of boys that comes to the fore in the second and third volumes of L'Histoire de La sexualite. Now in part, Foucault needs to deal with what amounts to one of the great taboos of the contemporary Western world. And at least implicitly, the movement from exteriority to interiority brings about the complete repression of the possibility of the love for boys. Yet if Foucault's model and epistemological system are correct, the so-called repression of the love of boys, the construction of a taboo is not part of a repression per se but actually a means of channeling that same structure of desire. Hence Foucault's discussion of the love of boys must proceed delicately in order not to seem to be shaking the foundations of the taboo.”

"Child porn is wrong, and that's self-evident", Windsor Star, 20 Jan 1999. “Meaning no disrespect (well, maybe just a little), quoting the likes of [Gerald Hannon], and Sharpe and pedophile guru Michel Foucault (as one newspaper did) to advance the cause of adult-child sex, muddies the issue and gives unwarranted credibility by even discussing it.”
- Sorman, Guy (2020-01-09). Talent Is No Longer an Excuse for Crime (en-US). France-Amérique. “In the name of absolute freedom, which he applied first and foremost to himself, he paid for little boys in Tunisia on the pretext that they, too, had a right to pleasure.”
