I have myself wondering, what do you ladies think of pedophiles? Of course, a natural reaction for anyone is to automatically feel disgust towards them, but what if they can't help it? I got my associates in Psychology, and those classes just got my mind thinking about a lot of things. Gay people for example, can't help who they're attracted to. Everyone protests about how they're born that way and we should accept it. Or for example, men (women too, but I'll go with men for the sake of this post) who are into porn, are into different things. Some are even into weird stuff. Some like threesome porn, some like anal porn, some like bi-racial porn, some like porn that takes place in public places, etc. My point is, everyone is into different things. What about the people who are attracted to children? What if they truly can't HELP it? It has been scientifically proven that some people just are that way, and it's as impossible to control as it is for a gay person to stop themselves from being attracted to the same sex, or for straight people to be attracted to the opposite sex. The law states, that as long as a person doesn't act on it, there is no law stating that a person can't be attracted to children (because it is not something that can be controlled). I feel bad for people who are attracted to children and don't WANT to be, as long as they don't act on it and are good people. There are people who actually go to voluntary counseling to try and fight it and hope to change themselves because they don't WANT to be that way. Some men like big boobs, some men don't. Some men like black women, white women, tall women, short women, women with big butts, etc. Some are attracted to younger girls. I plan to further my education (since I can't do much with just an associates) and become a therapist and I hope to gain insight into why some people are attracted to children and attempt to help them. What are your thoughts on them? Without automatically screaming gross, sick, or whatever, think about it with an open mind.
And let me add quick...I AM IN NO WAY OKAY WITH IT! I just wonder how they are supposed to help it when that is what they are naturally into.
I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ACT ON IT!!! I'M TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST ATTRACTED TO THEM AND DON'T ACT ON IT!
I did some more research on it, and it says that .5% up to 7% of men have some attraction to children (pre-puberty). They say it's hard to get a clear number of how many men because most men keep it a secret and don't share it with others. They also say that many DON'T act on it. They do have therapy for men who are attracted to children, but the initial attraction is not something a man can control. He can seek counseling though, be put on medications to lower arousal, and can recieve arousal reconditioning therapy. Most men though, just keep it a secret and deal with it from day to day without ever acting on it. They even have porn with legal aged women, and make them look very young, with hair styles like piggy tails and little girl looking bedroom scenes because there are so many men who are into it even though they won't act on it. There may even be women on here who are with men who find young children sexually attractive and don't know it. Scary, but true.
