I'm gonna sound crazy so before you come at me read the whole thing. Part of me sympathises with pedophiles who have never offended. I genuinely believe it to be a mental condition/illness and don't believe throwing them in jail is the correct thing to do, unless they've offended ofc. I feel they need psychological help and the stigma attached to pedophiles is the reason many don't seek it and instead offend. Again I do agree that they shouldn't be punished for offending, just think that help should be available in order to prevent it. Told my friends my view and they all went crazy at me lol.

I have the same view. There are multiple groups for pedophiles who have never committed an offence, never touched a child etc etc. Yet they suffer so much abuse and shame. I think pedophilia is a sexual orientation just like people are attracted to the opposite sex, same sex or older people. I think people who act on children and carry out their fantasy should be given the harshest punishment but those who go out of their way to not have children, see children or be near children on a day to day basis deserve support and treatment. I know this because I've spoken to 2 pedophiles in my course. One who has engaged with a child and one who hasn't

I think along with other criminals, if you do a crime then you should sit in jail. They know it's illegal like doing drugs and still do it so they deserve to go to jail

We learned in sexual history class that in ancient Greek culture pedophilia was a very common practice and all that changed with the coming of Christianity and monotheism. I still of course think it is wrong though, it's like those who are being judged because they are homosexual, you can keep telling yourself you are not gay and be with the opposite sex but how long can you keep it up? A lot of men have had affairs with other men and a stories of pastors who condemn homosexuality but have gay partners come out all the time . Not saying homosexuality is like pedophilia, just saying it is hard to stop sexual urges completely. Also a lot pedophiles are in prison and not because they act on these urges but because of child porn and because the market is so large a lot of children are being taken raped and abused and filmed for their pleasure. If pedophilia is ever accepted I think more children will be at risk and like homosexuality, I don't think therapy will stop the urges from coming. I think we should isolate these people from society. Maybe not in prison but definitely not leave them in the streets.

@princesspeac @Sassysally @lumiere thanks for sharing your views girls and for being open minded! It's strange to think how society might develop in the next 50/100 years.

I completely agree with you. Out gut reaction to pedophilia is disgust but as @lumiere pointed out, that's a relatively modern social construction because pedophilia used to be normal and children weren't always viewed as innocent beings that need our protection. I also believe that it's a mental disorder and they deserve treatment and help. It's a complicated issue because do you try to convert pedophiles to a different sexual orientation like people try to do to gay people? (Which is obviously wrong and abhorrent.) I see it as disordered sexual behavior and think they deserve therapy and assistance. However, if they do act on it and abuse children that's not ok and they should face consequences because it does traumatize and harm the child.

And what's so sad is that A lot of sexually abused children turn to pedophilia as they get older, and it just becomes a cycle.

This is a Problem we are having, same with drug abusers they have to want the help we can't force them to change. When they r convicted they do go threw counseling threw the prisons. But they have to b the #1 prevention and get the help they need.

I sympathise drug addicts,not pedophiles. To me going near a young child possibly ruining their sweet life is a sick thing. Drug addicts are ruining their own lives not fu***** up an innocent child for pleasure

Hell no they should all just disappears I will never have sympathy for people who have disgusting thoughts like that and especially for those who act upon it. They're all gonna burn in hell.

If they have acted on it, they should have the death sentence. Ones that haven't acted on it, yeah they need help. But they should be put somewhere that they can never even look at a child.
