    Lol...:woo: I think we both know who the retard is.

    Getting raped as a child and getting beaten as a child are very different. You have to deal with sex a lot more as you grow up, you don't have to deal with fighting more really as you grow up.

    In having you said what you said, I'm going to assume you actually know males and females who have had childhood trauma, rape and abuse. So you must be right?
    Ok, you've made several errors. The first is misinterpreting my use of the word abuse to be synonymous with violent, non sexual, abuse. The second is assuming that your opinion is validated by virtue of association with a victim, rather than, as I would argue, being biased by an insanely small sample size and inductively assuming it to be true for all cases. I think the fact alone that we have living victims of child abuse is an, admittedly, crass form of evidence that your ridiculous generalisation that 'they would all have been better off murdered' fails, as if they shared your sentiment I can imagine suicide rates to be much higher than they currently are.

    Conclusion: you are a moron.

    I kind of agree. I think that they can be treated too harshly for having child porn on their PC. I mean, isn't it better that they use that to satisfy their perversion than actually go out and do something to a kid themselves? I think they sometimes need more help than punishment.
    If the law does not enforce harsh punishments for child pornography, it inadvertently raises demand for it. Thus, more children are abused and exploited to satiate a increasing demand. Child pornography isn't a victimless crime by any stretch.

    Being paedophile is not the same as raping a child..
    Just as heterosexuality is not the same as raping someone of the opposite sex.. Getme?

    (Original post by Phugoid)
    It is, but paedophilia is NOT the rape of an underage child, you moron.

    Read the last 3 pages of comments, then come back and talk sense.

    You should be glad that idiocy is not a crime.
    No, really? Are you sure?

    Not necessarily. Dutch and portuguese law does not enforce harsh punishments for the consumption of cannabis (and certain other, harder, drugs, in the case of Portugal) yet those two countries have some of the lowest levels of drug use in Europe. What's more, in the case of Portugal, drug use levels actually fell after the punishments were taken away.

    I'm not sure why this is, but it is fact. It is not necessarily the same in this case, but you cannot accept your own argument prima facie without a lot of serious thought why this must be so.

    That's really interesting. On topic, I suppose being a paedo and not actually causing offence is acceptable in that people won't find out. I hate the idea of it thought, seems really disturbing.

    Your 'honest opinion' was the same 'honest opinion' about homosexuals less than 50 years ago.

    Paedophiles do not need to be treated for anything. They have a sexual attraction to children, but that does not mean they are a threat to children. I have a sexual attraction to women, but I am not a threat to them, and the same is true of a vast majority of paedophiles.

    People who actually molest children should be punished, but the line between child molesters, and paedophiles is as clear cut as the line between straight men, and straight men who rape women.

    Paedophilia is not a problem. Child molestation is. Paedophiles should be left in peace. Child molestors should be dealt with. Paedophiles are treated too harshly. Child molesters are not treated harshly enough. Paedophiles are normal, functioning members of society. Child molesters are delinquents.

    People, please mark the difference between these two very different groups of people in the same way that you mark the difference between men who are attracted to women, and men who rape women.
    Finally someone talks sense

    Difficult to see that there is any causal link between these interesting facts though.

    Its not their fault they found me so damn sexy =) (when I was younger obv.)

    But yes, we have social norms, which although people are maturing earlier as a result of the excessive levels of hormones we are exposed to these days. It just isn't right to perform an act relating to the creation of a child while the person is still a child themselves.

    I know girls used to be married very young but people didn't live as long in those days.

    @Phugoid?
    You're the only one who really knows what they're talking about and can develop a rational argument. I agree with you entirely.

    Hope to see this debate taken to a larger stage, so the ignorant masses can be educated on what Pedophilia actually is. Maybe, just maybe, then Pedophiles will be able to integrate into society, given the support they need to control their urges, urges which are a result of their perfectly understandable SEXUALITY.

    Peace.

    The two situations are not directly comparable. Drug abuse is the culmination of many different factors, and is significantly different from paedophilia. One cannot treat child pornography as vastly less harmful than actual molestation.

    I'm not sure you can compare child pornography with drug use, people who use drugs choose to do it, and therefore will only be harming themselves (most of the time). Children who appear in abusive images aren't doing it as a side job after nursery to earn a bit of extra dollar, there is a certain amount of force used. By this argument you would suggest that legalising the use of child pornography to a certain extent could cause a drop in use, and perhaps stop paedophiles going on to beome child abusers? Is that right?
