Quote# 125548




It would be of big importance what kind of pedo's he is going after, if he is going after any pedo regardless of what kind, thats well beyond something I am ok, or indifferent about, cause ya know people that actually don't harm children but say look at loli **** can and sometimes are considered by law to be pedos and they really arent hurting anyone. Also there is the whole evidence thing.

That being said, on one hand I don't like kiddie fiddlers, but on the other hand I believe in basic human rights and more importantly fair legal treatment and the whole innocent until proven guilty thing. Also don't like vigilantes outside of cases where the law is doing NOTHING about a problem, like the rapeugee **** and the whole sex slave **** in Rotherham or w/e it was.



child porn, of any kind, even loli hentai type stuff, is illegal in several places across the world. Still I don't want someone getting murdered for not actually hurting anyone, and I know people will argue that they are contributing to the harm of children, which is a dangerous mind set in of itself, as the person in question that is just looking at the stuff is not doing it.

Looking at child porn is one of them grey zone on the fence kinda thing, I don't like the idea of a child being abused for that ****, but at the same time I'm not going to blame the person viewing it for the abuse, it gets a little more one sided with pay for content type **** but still its hard for me to side either way on this and there are a ton of different ideals fighting against each other over it for me, specially when you consider that the outcome is someone's life is pretty much ruined if convicted for simply watching the ****.

Um, submitter? Which of those things - that horrid photoshop or the response to it - are we supposed to be angry about? I agree with Arkis in that vigilante justice, sometimes based on fiction or a twisting of the facts, is not the way to settle with a lawbreaker. The courts are.

I've heard about sex offender registries where the offence itself is not specified. Some of the people on it were wrongly treated as pedophiles by the public when their crimes were actually committed against adults.

Arkis is also correct, strictly speaking, when he argues that going after jail-bait - "loli" - is not comparable to having sexual relations with someone who hasn't hit puberty yet and could not, ever, in any meaningful way, offer consent. People who chase post-pubescent children are actually either hebephiles (who prey on younger people just over puberty) or their only slightly-less-creepy cousin, the ephebophiles (who have the most interest in older under-aged teens as opposed to younger teens or pre-pubescent children). Strictly speaking, an ephebophile could operate legally, since the age of consent almost everywhere is 16-18 years. Hebephiles and pedophiles, on the other hand, cannot act legally and should not act illegally either; they should get professional help.

I genuinely wish the stigma against pedophelia, proper as it is, would not hit so hard against those who want and ask for counselling and who haven't acted on their urges.

One man, acting on his own, is not a justice system. Batman is cool for comic books and movies, but in real life, he'd be a walking, talking liability.

No-one beats paedophiles with a hammer like Gaston.

Misguided idiot on one side prompts misguided idiocy from the other side. Just another day on the Internet.

...and that's why we in the UK have Operation Ore. Also the 2009 Coroners & Justice Act.

Batman is a fictional vigilante. Meanwhile on Planet Reality, there's the Law.

Judge Dredd is The Law. That's why he wanted to arrest Batman in the DC/2000 AD crossovers.

OK I'm really tired & creeped out by all the pedo comments this morning. I already had a shower but feel like I need another one.

There is only one kind of pedo; the one molesting prepubescent kids.
There are also the Hebephiles molesting pubescent kids, and the ephebophiles molesting post-pubescent kids.

I don't think it's a good idea to go after them with a hammer. Let the gavels of the law take care of them.

The kids' human right to not be molested far trumps adults' non-existent right to sex.

Child porn picturing actual children harm actual children, both when they are produced, and the knowledge that they are out there for ever and ever.

There is probably enough porn with adults pretending being kids, and CGI can produce porn without real people in them at all. No need for actual children to be molested during production of porn.

The person viewing it is the reason that it exists in the first place.

What about the outcome that someone's life is pretty much ruined because sleazy old men want to drool over child molestations?

I'd day contributing to the existence of child porn is proper grounds for life ruination.
