Pedophiles are unable to control their attractions. Therefore, It would be unethical to punish them. Also, While pedophiles are more likely to rape children, Their risk only increases if they are forced to hide. When we attack/ban pedophilia, We force existing pedophiles to stay hidden, Making them unlikely to get help. Without support, Pedophiles are much more likely to act on their desires.
I don't care about your "urges. " I don't care if that 8 year old "likes it" when you do it. Think about that kids parent. Does the parent approve of this? Why can't you just date people your age? Do you get some gratification out of taking advantage of little weak children?
Punishing people for simply having a mental disorder is disgusting, And is no different to the "Thought Crimes" described in George Orwell's novel 1984. The act of child molestation is obviously wrong, But it is a completely different thing than pedophilia, Which is simply the disorder that causes certain people to turn to crime. Making pedophilia illegal would be exactly like imprisoning everyone who has anger issues because there's a chance they could kill someone.
Pedophilia is like the fact of being homosexual something that we sudden and something that we can't control. We need to understand a key point concerning morality : Morality doesn't exist, Nietzsche said " there are no moral phenomenon but only moral interpretation of phenomenon". Actually, In a lot of countries pedophilia is legal (or accepted) and this doesn't create any societal problems.
Yes it should be. Only if nothing is forced and it’s mutual then it should be fine.
Children can get into trouble for lying, Stealing, Wagging school, Shop lifting etc. . . . They Knew what they were doing.
But when it comes to sexual stuff. . . OH they suddenly don’t know what they are doing and can’t consent. What a load of rubbish.
Age can define experience and experience can define age, If a child learns of sex and wants to experience it themselves, They find the closest most trustworthy person to teach them about sex, They don't see age, They see opportunity. If they are curious about the matter and want to try it out, Is that in itself not consent? If a lost child approached you in the street and openly asked for your help, Would you not offer your hand?
We have to be more open minded and let the kids gain their own experiences, In hope they make the correct decision. If someone is attracted to a child and chooses to respect the child and care greatly for it, Are they harming that child?
Do NOT misunderstand me, We should still punish rapists, Anyone that condones the rape of children should be punished, And those who do should receive therapy and treatment, They're actually mentally ill.
Nobody choses pedophilia. You are born that way. The same way gay men are born gay. They never had a choice. One day you find yourself attracted to someone the world says you can't be with. Just like interracial marrige in the 50's. Child rape is wrong. But if two people who love each from differrnt age groups are really in love, Age aint nothing but a number
As long the person doesn't hurt the child, But really show love and care, Then I see no harm in an adult-child relationship.
Both parts can gain from it if it's done right.
But if the adult harm the child in any form, Then then the punishment should be very hard.
Maybe the first question that many did not answer is that how does sex impact children's mind? To be honest, Many children already knows how to masturbate and have sex so why is it still wrong for them to give consent and have sex with adults? Some children do and some don't but for the ones that do then just give them a chance. For example, I don't have problems in legalizing child sex brothels with or without child's parent's permission. Many children under the age of 10 years old can "technically" masturbate and have sexual arousal with other children and adults so it is normal and part of mother nature. If the children are too young to know sex then how come many already know how to have sex or at least masturbate at a very early age? How does that harm a child? How does sex or make love means child abuse? There is no harming but just having fun together. Many children likes and enjoy sex and masturbating. If a child knows what sex is and was taught about sex earlier in their life then I guess that they can say yes or no or make a decision on their own or give consent for having sex since they know what it is and they know that is all about fun. Everyone wants to have fun. There is no harm at all but just fun, Fun and fun! It is the rights for children to have fun in something new and getting to know the undiscovered realm. Come on!

If an adult is attracted to a child, It is illegal. It's illegal because children aren't meant for adults to be in a romantic relationship. They are growing and shouldn't have to worry about these things. It is also disgusting to have those thoughts of doing things with a child. Even though you can't control what you are attracted too, You should still seek help to get rid of these thoughts and feelings because they are WRONG
If you have an attraction towards children as an adult you are a gross human being, Now if you can keep your feeling toward little kids to yourself and not act on them its fine but if you act on those feelings towards children who do not have an understanding of what the word consent even means then you should be arrested immidiently
Yes pedophilia is illegal and it should stay that way. Children are incapable of understanding romantic relationships and still in school ffs. Most kids just want to play video games and think about how to pass math class.
Children are not only underdeveloped mentally, They are underdeveloped physically and not yet ready to reproduce, You sick, Sick people.
Personally I don't care about the people who fap their junk to anime stuff, It isn't real. But if you cross that boundary to the real thing, You need to be in jail. Make sure you keep your urges fixed on the fake crap so no actual kids are harmed, Thanks.
While sure, You can't blame some one for having a strange fetish and you shouldn't kink shame, Actually acting on these desires is a very bad thing in the sense that, These are children. They have not matured or learnt about the world so don't have enough knowledge or capability to actually give a educated and proper 'Yes'.
Nobody wants their children touched by a creepy ass old boomer. If you say yes to pedophilia being legalized then you associate with child molesters. These people are monsters and deserve to be punished. If any pedophile goes after my kid I will kill the f**ker on sight. Okay? Okay.
I have teenage children, They are all horrified with the idea of pedophilia became legal. I would never let it happen. Why out of pity of some narcissistic wackos do we have to sacrifice the innocence of our innocent children? I don't care of they were born "this way" or not, Put them in a mental hospital. GO away
Thats about it. It doesnt create harm in a children if it is properly done.
If you rape a woman is bad, If you both love each other then is good. Same goes for kids who are mentally mature to understand sex and love, And every time they are more aware in earlier ages.
The fact that anyone things it’s okay to have sec with anyone under 17 if ur over is wrong because they haven’t even started to live they’re lives and the fact they think people around 10 will be okay is disgusting this is just showing how broken we are atm that we are letting people consider this ok
It's a complicated issue with a somewhat simple solution. Pedophilia can be considered a mental illness, It's an attraction, Not a sexuality. Having these thoughts about children can cause immense self-hatred, And the real solution is to get help, Not to act on any of the urges. A pedophile can't help their thoughts, But they absolutely should not be given any chance to act on them.
In conclusion, I don't see a reason to judge someone based on thoughts they can't control, But the second they do anything to act on them, We need to have something (in this case the law) to stop them from ever attempting it again.
Of course not. The safety of kids and teens is a must and they should all be protected from people like this.
I have a friend who has special needs- Mild Autism and a Mild Intellectual Disability. She's 22 and has the intellectual age of an 8-9 yr old. Most strangers and even the more distant/less visited family members would be able to tell until they see the way she dresses- which is very much like a little kid. The way she acts it isn't always 100% obvious either that she is intellectually the mind of a child. Around other family members she has to dress more "adult" because they don't like the childish look.
When she was between the ages 14-16 someone in the family, Her dad in particular would do certain things to her (touching, Rubbing, Etc) he never wanted anyone to find out and one day had held a item in his hand (won't say what type of item) as he in a sense forced her to make marks onto her arm which look very much like self-harm. She ended up having multiple. Many scars after it and that's what it looks like. If she didn't do it he would make bruises and such into her legs and/or back. To cover his tracks he ended up doing this to her to get her into a hospital the first time (for self-harm that she never did) and the second time crushed up some aspirin/aleve that he gave to her in a big plastic cup of tea to then rush her to the hospital claiming she did it to herself.
He also caused an incident where a part of her face was in severe pain one day which was a result of some medication she was given but was not taking at the time and again was given a plastic cup of tea that day so I believe he caused this too.
He would do things to her to make it almost look like the (r word) was taking place but it actually didn't happen but he wanted it to look that way and since she is a little bit delayed intellectually she believed that (r word) was the thing that happened. Same in a couple of other situations.
She didn't ever like any of this happening to her, She never wanted ANY of this to happen.
Nothing like this is happening to her anymore (not at all) but still could you just imagine if this was LEGAL? NO WAY. Pedophilia should always stay ILLEGAL and anyone who does it should be put into prison/criminally charged and have to remain away from those underage forever.
