Look, dipshit, chemical castration has been used on people who've abused children and it works. No amount of therapy can fix them and disabling their ability to feel sexual attraction is often the only way to keep them from destroying the lives of innocent children. If it were me, I'd have any pedophile caught executed, but such is the way of the world that we can't have nice things.


As critical thinking is clearly not your strong suit, permit me to clear up a couple of things for you.

Firstly, as you have so eloquently pointed out, you first need to know that the person in question is a pedophile, so all your little little idea is doing is putting a plaster on an open wound.

I.E. A pedophile acts, and then you reply. Bolting horse, meet stable door. That doesn't solve anyone's problem, yes, perhaps, and is it just a perhaps, it stops a molester molesting again, but that they did it in the first place is what we're discussing here, not your anger management issues, if all you're looking to do is rage around impotently rather than engaging in debate, I would suggest you start a blog rather than putting it on a forum intended for intelligent discussion.

Secondly, all you've done is reiterate what you already said with more words and an attempt at an insult, not actually addressed anything I said.

To make my stance clear: To eliminate a problem you first need to be able to discuss it, an alcoholic will not seek help until he/she realises that they themselves have a problem, until then they'll gladly spiral out of control, to draw a parallel, in this instance we have people with tendencies that are not acceptable to be acted upon in civilised society, setting up castration clinics won'tet them out of the woodwork and potentially into therapy, it'll leave them where they are; bottling everything up, hiding in plain sight, and putting themselves and others at risk.

By drawing it out into the open, by engaging with these individuals in civilised discourse, more could be learnt, more could be tested, and solutions could be drawn up, all you're doing is continuing a cycle that ends in molestation.

What's right and wrong is not as black and white as the law might put it.

An adult having sexual relations with a 3-year-old? Wrong, because it's obviously non-consesual, and no matter how you look at it, a 3-year-old isn't anywhere near old enough to have sexual relations with anyone.

An adult, say someone having sexual relations with a 15-year-old? This is right around where it gets tricky. Unless it's rape, it's probably consensual. If it is, then I don't see anything wrong with this relationship. Some might argue that a 15-year-old isn't old enough to make rational decisions, especially in cases like these. That's true in the case of some people, but untrue in others. Like I said, it isn't so black and white.

Bottom line, I think that any relationship that is 100% consensual is just fine. There are obvious exceptions, like when a child is unarguably too young to comprehend or decide for themselves or even have sexual relations.

And about stopping the bad treatment of "pedophiles", I agree. No matter what, people can't help what they like. Acting on it is a whole other story, but once again, as long as it's reasonably consensual I don't see anything wrong at all. Just because the law says it is doesn't mean shit to me, honestly.

Depends on the kind of paedophile. If we take it strictly according to the definition it just simply means that it is someone who loves children. When we refer to it though in the media way, then we are talking about sadistic pricks who like to sexually abuse children. Maybe we should refer to these kind of folks as misopaedos or something along those lines, because quite clearly they don't "love" children, they hate them and turn them into sexual objects.
Technically they don't even have to be paedophiles, they might just have the urge to quell their sexual desires, and in most cases children are the weakest part of the chain, weaker than women.

Also, a person who has relations with a minor is not necessarily a pedophile.

It might be a one-time thing. You know, like those inexplicable urges we all have had at least once to be with someone who is not right for us and we know it.

I personally believe a person can be considered an adult at 15 or 16. As long as a person has gone through puberty and are capable of having relations with another, I view them as potentially adult. 18 as an age that qualifies a person to be an adult seems arbitrary.

Sorry, real issue, but not signing my rights away. NSA is bad enough.

There's got to be a better solution than monitor the web.

I do support death penalty for child predators however. Imprisonment is expensive.

Many studies have been done on pedophilia in accordance with brain tumors and other neurological abnormalities.

I think the greater question that arises here is whether or not we are truly advancing as a society if our only way to deal with inconclusive situations is through isolation and death.

If you are attracted to anyone that has gone through puberty that is not being a pedophile, there is another name for that. Really at that point it's all up to cultures to dictate if you a monster or not, Italy says 14 is okay, japan says 13, some parts of america say 16 while others say 18.

Until modern times, you weren't considered an adult until 21, it was considered to be the age where a man could properly wear a suite of armor. Yet no one had problems with marriage between a 14 year old and an 18 year old.

My point I guess is you're only really really in the morally screwed region if you like undeveloped girls, and not OMG shes 15 and I'm attracted to her I must be a pedophile.

Pedophile is not age based of the victim through my eyes, however child predator is adults stalking, traumatizing, and engaging in sexual activities with boys/girls under 18 regardless of consent. That's how I see it and those people need to be put to justice.

Now if you have an interest in lolis, that's fine by me. It's 2D and it doesn't hurt anyone. Same for if you like petite or less-developed women. Just stay away from the kids.

Did I hear brain tumor? lol no ..

Minors like 15-17 to date, lets say an 18-23yrs old person.. to me
that's fine if they "love" each other.

Pedophiles obviously wants the spring chickens
and I mean like the 5-13 of age. Now that is sickening
and it's gross. I don't think therapy or anything would help ..
it's just what they like and be nasty on it ..

Well, will ya' look at that..

Anyway, I do not think this will stop pedophiles. There literally is no way to totally stop them, but I think what would be best is encouragement of finding these types of people help.

People will probably never stop looking at them as some kind of monster, just like how people will never view people with psychotic disorders who shoot up schools as anything less than a monster. Hiding under the guise of a "mental illness" won't change people on their views of disgust towards the thoughts of someone sexualizing a child. I'm such a person. One of the more disgusting things to me is people even thinking about a child in that way. I can't help it.

The only solution you can have to this problem is doing what we currently do. We try our best to lure these predators in and trap them and arrest them. To the ones who suffer and don't do anything the only thing that can be done is to make sure they know that touching a child sexually is horrible, and to find a way to encourage them to get help. We can only try to make sexual abuse of children as infrequent as possible.

There is a pretty large unspoken stigma surrounding seeking mental help in our country right now. It's not something a lot of people want to bring up but it's quite humiliating to see a therapist for a mental disorder.

I've had to see several throughout my life. I wasn't able to speak until I was about 7 years old, I needed very specific coaching. I could read advanced material fluently at age 4, but I was also almost entirely mute, mostly using writing to convey my thoughts. When I was slightly older I ended up having a severe phobia of most food, it got to be so bad that I literally couldn't eat most things because my gag reflex would make me vomit if I tried to swallow. I've also had extreme swings of depression with minor phases of bipolarity.

But getting help for just that stuff is humiliating. I dread the judgement that would befall to me by not just employers but my own peers if they found out about some of the stuff I've needed help for. I've refused help in the past even though I very, very much needed it because the thought of, "How will this impact my future career opportunities?", "What will she think if she finds out I'm seeing a therapist?", "I don't want the pity/harassment from my peers", "I don't want to humiliate myself to see a doctor and then just get prescribed a pill" kept me from seeking help through my more extreme battles with depression.

If it were for pedophilia? Dear god I don't want to even think about how demoralizing it would be for someone to become that open about it. But I will say that mental help is oftentimes necessary. Many crimes are committed because people who need mental help don't get it before they hurt people. The crimes of a pedophile are indeed extremely heinous, and it's always going to be hard to be accepting of someone who has the temptation to do that kind of thing to the point where they feel like an outside force needs to stop them.

But it is of course absolutely critical that we stop demonizing people that haven't committed a crime. For many, these thoughts and temptations happen. But nobody acts on them because we know that they are morally wrong. I feel the community of pedophiles who don't believe they are harming children is the extreme minority and of course should be put down immediately, but if someone raises their hand and says, "Y'know, I know I have a problem, and I need help.", that we actually encourage that positive behavior.

Listen up people because a couple of mistakes have been made here.

First is that some one interested in having sex with a teenager (13-19) is technically not a pedofile. They are what is called in psychological terms a Hibiphile. Pedophiles are interested in sex with children 12 years old and younger.

Second, according to law enforcement you do not always suffer from pedophilia, or hibiphilia for life, There SOME people who out grow of it. (SOME). Also therapy may not cure them of this recognized mental illness, but it does help them manage their desire better so that they do not commit offenses.

That being said, we need a better way of dealing with this problem. I believe that if you rape anyone you should be up for the death penalty, but there has to be a better out reach program to stop these people from committing acts of any kind of sexual perversion than there is out there now (meaning absolutely nothing.)

Also is anyone one really surprised that this has gotten such a "liberal" response here given the huge Loli-con following on this website? (A little common sense people!)

This is taken from a show on this website called "A Dark Rabbit Has Seven lives" in it this particular character is said to have the body of six year old when this scene takes place.
