    Intelligent input.
    I didn't want to read the rest of the thread, as I read the first couple of pages and realised that it was mental saying that they should be treated for mental illness.

    That would stop/highly prevent paedophillia, the fear of losing your parts, surely?

    Did you know that they have differently shaped heads? No joke, a colleague (who also works with sex offenders) saw a documentary on the subject and starting looking at the people she was working with, she said that more often than not they had this particular head shape in common.

    Ah, that would explain it.

    If you carried on reading a clear distinction was made between Pedophiles and child molesters.

    Gentiles are overrated.

    Paedophiles should be castrated.
    Rapists should be castrated.
    Yeah, but there is a rather large flaw with that, the one being that you wouldn't know someone was a rapist until they raped somebody. Unless you mean we should castrate the entire human race just incase, in which case I couldn't agree more

    People who believe in the death penalty maybe? Just a thought.

    Thank you very much.

    But seriously though, surely a murderer is worse?

    No, I disagree (with the thread title).

    I don't have much else to say here. *saunters off*

    IMHO, paedophiles suffer from a mental illness.
    That's not a matter of opinion, rather a fact.

    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?
    In a sense you are right, but in the most important sense you are not.
    My argument is not that lowering punishments would also lower the amount of pedophiles; although this may be the case I do not have sufficient reason to believe it. I am just saying that you cannot presume that in all cases a decrease in punishment will lead to an increase in crime, and that you cannot know wheter this is such a case or not.

    'Losing their parts' can be internal as well. That's why I didn't specify to 'losing your man parts'.

    Haha and down comes the human race.
    You wouldn't know that they were until after yes, but to be on the safe side afterwards, or get one of these:

    My bad. I assume the definitions are that paedophiles just watch peverted porn and molesters, well...?

    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.
    You're missing my point. I'm not comparing the issues themselves. I'm offering an analogy to help explain why a decrease in punishment for crime x will not necessarily lead to an increase in the rate of crime x.

    I guarantee any girl wearing one of these will be murdered should the rapist get caught in it.

    er - No! Rape isn't that bad at all lol, 40 minutes of discomfort doesn't merit lifetime mutilation. Just a large fine and a possible jail sentence.

    Difficult to see that there is any causal link between these interesting facts though.
    Difficult to see how any causal link could be more satisfactorily demonstrated short of studies which the nature of the subject do not allow.

    IMHO, paedophiles suffer from a mental illness. They need to be helped and cured primarily, even if they've committed an offence, although obviously if they have committed an offence then they need to be treated in a secure location.
    This. :yep:

    Because potentially being beaten to death in prison, serving an overkill sentence and losing abso-*******-lutely everything isn't deterrent enough, right?

    I hate the death penalty and I never think killing them would be the answer. I've seen that thing before though, they look like a very good idea. A rather sensible (but probably partial) solution I think, not any of this microchipping nonsense.
