I had this discussion with a young lady (she has no children), and in the conversation I talked about how (IMO), I do not believe pedophiles can be rehablitated. I believe that if you are going to let them exsist with the general public, chemical castration would be necessary. She went on to state that she has no problem with "visual pedophiles". Pedophiles that look at children in a sexual manner, BUT without the intent to harm them. She stated that if she knew her neighbor was a "visual" pedophile and she had her little nieces over it would not bother her because she KNEW he was only going to look and not touch.
My question to you moms is, do "visual" pedophiles bother you as much as those that actually commit the crime? Is there a difference, in your opinion? Can they be rehabilitated? If you KNEW your neighbor was a "visual" one, how would you handle it?
Curious as to other moms opinions on this, thanks.

What a fucking idiot! Why would you expose your nieces to any kind of pedophile! Yes to what Anon 7:06 said, all violent child rapists and killers started out just looking. Just bc he's only looking at her nieces doesn't mean he's not touching someone else's. NO PEDOPHILES CAN NOT BE REHABILITATED!!!! Until we really decide how we feel and demand changes in our laws to reflect how life damaging these crimes are pedophiles will continue to molest children. Historically kids have had NO rights, they used to work 14 hr days. We have to continue to demand rights for those with no voice, they can't vote. The only way changes are made are for moms like us to stand up and say no more. We have to demand accountability and longer prison sentences, why are there more child molesters free then those with non violent drug offences? If if truly bothers you then get involved and help make a change in our laws! Speak up!
