All pedophiles are trash, no exceptions. There is no “Kink-shaming” about it. Protect survivors at all costs.
Pedophilia is not a fucking kink. A kink is like when someone likes to suck on toes or some shit. Or get bound. Or eat food off their partner. ALL of these things with consenting adults only. But being sexually attracted to children is not a fucking kink. It’s a crime.
Nit picking here, but being sexually attracted to children is not a crime. There is no such thing as thought crime. Sexual activity involving minors is a crime.
People are really bad at seeing the difference between preference/fantasy and action.
A pedophile who has never done anything wrong, who does what they can to minimize the risk that they will do something wrong… isn’t trash.
Also, news flash: not all who molest/rape children are pedophiles (that is, have a preference for children).
If thoughts would be criminal, I guess I should be arrested for all those violent dreams at night, or for those times in my teens when I used to ponder about the “the perfect crime”.
