Richard Matthew Stallman (souvent abrégé en RMS ou Richard Stallman) est un informaticien des États-Unis né le 16 mars 1953, fondateur du projet informatique GNU (un système d'exploitation libre basé sur Unix) et président de la Free Software Foundation (FSF).
- Le 28 juin 2003, il a déclaré sur son site internet, à propos de la sexualité :
|"prostitution, adultery, necrophilia, bestiality, possession of child pornography, and even incest and pedophilia" [...] All of these acts should be legal as long as no one is coerced. They are illegal only because of prejudice and narrowmindedness.
Some rules might be called for when these acts directly affect other people's interests. For incest, contraception could be mandatory to avoid risk of inbreeding. For prostitution, a license should be required to ensure prostitutes get regular medical check-ups, and they should have training and support in insisting on use of condoms. This will be an advance in public health, compared with the situation today. For necrophilia, it might be necessary to ask the next of kin for permission if the decedent's will did not authorize it. Necrophilia would be my second choice for what should be done with my corpse, the first being scientific or medical use. Once my dead body is no longer of any use to me, it may as well be of some use to someone. Besides, I often enjoy rhinophytonecrophilia (nasal sex with dead plants).

- En 2006, il a déclaré sur son site internet, à propos de la création du PNVD (un parti politique pédophile) aux Pays-Bas :
|I am skeptical of the claim that voluntarily pedophilia harms children. The arguments that it causes harm seem to be based on cases which aren't voluntary, which are then stretched by parents who are horrified by the idea that their little baby is maturing.||Traduction à faire|
