    The other component to society’s imposed interdiction/prohibition of sexuality among younger people–outside of religious proscription, is due to parent’s desires to elevate the mental capacities of their progeny to a high functioning level, which society has deemed a requirement to function in today’s overly complex, competitive, capitalistic world. The fear is that early sexualization will lead to early pregnancy- which many view as a contemptible impediment to the advanced development of higher education, which will slow money earning-which will affect the parents ability on returns for their investment. So in essence pedophiles interfere with the parents “plan” for their children, which if you mess with any bank’s money, you’ll see the highly armed security response. There are many aspects of this issue outside of the immediate “because it’s disgusting” knee jerk response.

      There has always been a tug of war going on between the intellectual development of the mind and the senses of the physical body. Pedophiles are seen as contemptible indulgences into the most base and primitive of sexual urges and fantasies.

      I think pedophiles themselves may be trying to get in touch with the nexus point at which humans feel pleasure and sensuality?…almost as if to try and prove society wrong. I’m not sure but it sounds plausible. It’s as if they are trying to reverse engineer their own non-sensual upbringing by projecting what they deem to be pleasure on another human being. If scientists could conduct an experiment by raising a group of humans in an entirely sensual and permissive atmosphere where genital exploration is not only tolerated by encouraged, it would be interesting to see the outcome of those children pertaining to claims that sexual stimulation is damaging. Obviously I’m not referring to some sicko male who tries to have sexual intercourse with a baby-That is beyond the pale of anything imaginable, and those obviously are dangerous violent predators with no regard for life. My focus is on pleasure and massage as a therapeutic way of life among humans to improve society’s overhaul functioning and attributes, and I’m concerned with the attitudes and morays of sexual stimulation amongst a repressive taboo inflicted society.

      Obviously I’m not referring to some sicko male who tries to have sexual intercourse with a baby. That is beyond the pale of anything acceptable, and those obviously are dangerous violent predators with no regard for life. My focus is on pleasure and massage as a therapeutic way of life among humans to improve society’s overhaul functioning and attributes and an elimination of sexual taboos which lead to repression and frustration. Society obviously conjures up images of adult males who make unwanted, secretive advances on their children, and yes I agree that is unjustified and they should be prosecuted…but what if a family chooses to raise their children in an openly sexual atmosphere because they believe in a sort of “Utopian philosophy”? What if it’s not a violent and perverse atmosphere, but a loving and accepting one? Like polygamy and the Mormons, I’m not seeing how the government should really have a say in how a family chooses to raise their children. It’s kind of a free will issue is it not? Because someone else chooses to see genitals as “dirty” now the rest of us are living with the consequences, best summarizes my thoughts on the matter.

    i wouldn’t adopt a lawyerly position defending pedophiles if I didn’t find calls for violence against them so repulsive. It’s not that I support pedophillia…I do not. It’s that I loathe disproportionate, unjustified violence, especially when I see a corrupt and broken penal society meting out unofficial corporeal punishments. My analysis of pedophillia is that it’s based on cultural / sociological beliefs often controlled by religious controls as oppossed to being intrinsically harmful. It certainly does not warrant the death penalty in my view. Case closed. I’ve exhausted it. And No, I’m not a pedophile.

    Ok this thread is about exhausted. Here’s the lesson to be learned for those having trouble figuring it out: STOP INCITING VIOLENCE. If you want me to quit defending pedophiles ( and my natural lawyer mind LOVES defending underdogs ) you’ll stop all this hyper macho vigilante b.s. and let science and the justice system do its work. Am I a pedophile? No I am not. Do I feel sexual attitudes are ambiguous and subject to populist sentiments always changing? Yes I do. This idea of celebrating violent thug behavior against pedophiles is personally more repulsive to me than the act of pedophillia itself. This culture has a problem with violence and this is the real issue I am attacking. a person’s mind and sny affiliated fantasies, be it for children or feet, are the sole property of the mind and body possessing them. Obviously sexual fantasies for children is a common and widespread occurrence and it does no help to approach the issue with violence and threats to kill. I don’t want killers living in my community. I’d rather live near a peaceful person who happens to love children sexually then live with a macho tuff guy who elects himself as the enforcer of sexual and mental morays.

All for registering my opinion on a subject? Wow.. That’s beyond fascism. That’s like Salem Witch shit right there. It never ceases to amaze me the common douche-brain citizen such as yourself and their ability to turn into the most ignorant, dangerously fascist human beings on the planet when you put a keyboard in front of their fingers. I have more loathing for individuals such as yourself than I do the pedophiles. Pedophiles are merely expressing their free-will choice to be sexually gratified by whatever they choose. That’s not your decision, and it’s not the government’s decision. It is a parent’s decision and responsibility not to allow their children in the presence of pedophiles. But calls to beat them to death or execute them are entirely objectionable, and the root cause of everyone’s disgust with pedophilia is A. Homophobia and B. Sexual repression. I dispute that it’s as big of an issue as people make it out to be. It’s been wildly exaggerated and this exaggeration has led to unwarranted deaths and beatings by inmates against pedophiles all under the watch of correctional officers. This is unacceptable.

I believe that attitudes on this issue are entirely relevant to the manner in which sexuality is presented, and there are double standards which favor art and eroticism of children, while loathing a non sanctioned “lone wolf’s fantasy” turned into reality.

I sure as hell wouldn’t leave it up to some idiot gangbanger in prison who feels he can be of service to society beating a pedophile to death while the guards look the other way.

          There’s numerous issues going on. 1. The issue of promoting violence against the non-violent. 2. The notion that sexuality has rules or limitations. 3. The rights for families to raise their children in a manner of their choosing. 4. The sexual morays, constraints and attitudes society inflicts on its subjects. 5. The hypothesis that child deaths at the hands of predators are occurring BECAUSE of society’s violent attitudes against pedophiles. 6. The analysis of the human condition and what constitutes normal functionality of body parts as relayed to “legal timelines”.

          All everyone’s done here is proven themselves to be threatening, abusive, shallow, and without intellectual capacity to debate or think about an issue. This subject sparks off the wildest of reactions in people, and I find that in and of itself to be fascinating. It is indeed a hot button issue, and I love to play devil’s advocate and watch people literally freak out. No other issue it seems has the capacity to implode people’s brains as does the subject of pedophillia. The military ranks 2nd, Drugs 3rd, and Muslims 4th in terms of what drives people viscerally bonkers if you take an oppositional viewpoint. I wonder if peoples’ reaction to pedophillia is as such because they have diligently stifled their own pedophilliac thoughts, and are scared to death of what may very well be a more naturally common experience than humans would care to acknowledge? I’m not sure but something is behind the sheer terror and revulsion that pedophillia evokes, and I think it needs further psychoanalyzing than the thuggish remedy of “KILL EM ALL”.

I don’t know who you are, and I don’t care. What I do know is many so-called “Christians” conveniently turn into murderers and executioners the first chance they get. Funny how that works. Now, once you work through your own inner b.s. and gut reactions, if you want to read thru my comments carefully, maybe you’ll begin to understand some of the deeper thoughts I’ve laid out. I’ve seen these mobs on NIT go after pedophiles time and time again, and it’s like watching a bunch of villagers attacking Frankenstein’s monster. Eventually I want to understand the monster and maybe try and help it. This nation is becoming like IRAN in its “conservancy” and calls for violence against “abnormalities”. What’s next homosexuals? Some would say YES, and with the right Republicans elected…that could be a reality. Think I”m kidding?

You are trying to say that sexual abuse against a child is not harmful! Sexual abuse against anyone, child or adult is very harmful! No normal person would try to justify that. There are only two choices for someone that would justify sexual abuse against a child, you are either a pedophile or you are mentally ill. I am hoping for your sake you are just mentally ill.

          Here’s where I part ways with you philosophically. I believe in a Utopian vision for society where sexual shaming does not exist. Shaming for any body parts or functions does not exist. Religions of today do not exist. Humans embrace the reality of their physiology outside the man made religious imposed legal doctrines which imprison them. If you choose to refer to my beliefs as “mental illness” that is your prerogative to do so. I’ve seen your ways and quite simply they don’t work. Pedophillia, drug use, homosexuality, Muslims, still exist. By unraveling and confronting the core circuitry at what’s behind these phenomena, I have a better chance than you at freeing myself and the society I love from being continually bothered by such occurrences. Everyday I see more sex offenders so I know what you believe doesn’t work. Sorry Charlie. I have a better path.

          Larry I never said what pedophiles do to children is okay. That’s untrue. I have said that calls for violence and executions against pedophiles is unwarranted, and that the Justice Department needs to step in to handle the ongoing persecution of pedophiles both within prison and outside of prison…AND that the revulsion felt by people at the gut level is due to society’s adverse opinion of homosexuality which is at the core of pedophillia’s most despised cases. I don’t understand why pedophilliacs act as they do, but I’m trying to. I’m coming to the conclusion that sexual repression is behind much of it. And I don’t mean just not getting laid…I’m talking a deep seated cultural denial of sex and sexuality. It’s as if the pedophiles are trying to undue their own repressed childhoods perhaps?

      It’s clear Congressional hearings and a Justice department review needs to occur concerning the violence perpetrated against pedophiles in America both in the communities and in correctional facilities. This defacto punishment by other inmates is a violation of every standard and rule instituted. American prisons and jails are THUG factories and citizens herald these criminal thugs as heroes when they beat on pedophilliacs. They are thugs and not heroes. Prisons need to desperately be redesigned and the thugs that occupy them sent to solitary confinement forever.

    And I have to say that a double standard exists when it comes to this issue. Take for example a “hot” young mother. If she were to massage her baby’s penis while oiling him down after a bath or changing his diaper because she saw it put a smile on the child’s face, most of you guys out there would say “lucky kid”. And how would society handle that if she published it as a YouTube video? Would she be arrested for “molesting” her baby even though it was clear she did it in a kind and loving manner and the child clearly enjoyed what she was doing? Most would see the bonds between mother and child inseparable. So who’s going to step in and say what she’s doing is criminal versus acceptable and therapeutic? It seems as though many of you could have benefited from loving sensual parents as oppossed to the hard ass ones you obviously had.

        I think you should stick to debating the issue and not try and smear someone’s name. Clearly you have a reading comprehension problem. The comment I made raises the question as to who decides what is considered molestation versus acceptable mother / child intimacy. Plus I maintain that like breast feeding videos, when an attractive woman does it it is considered “hot” but when an ugly woman does it is considered “disgusting and shameful”. Double standards exist everywhere as evidenced in the “hot for teacher” phenomenon.

    The reality is most civilized people would rather live in communities of peace and acceptance than to live with the violent macho mentality which sponsors loud pipes, aggression towards women, abuse, thuggery, bank robbery and crime, hyper patriotism, and small minded brains that create an atmosphere of fear and hatred. Many of you sound compatible with Vladsmir Putin’s thuggish Russia. My main point is I’m tired of reading about all this desire for violence against pedophiles. The ones who act on their fantasies are clearly mentally ill. And yes, the parents are guilty for not keeping tabs on the situation of who’s around their children.

        Actually you are the problem. The main reason pedophiles kill their victims is for fear of being told on by the child, which then subjects them to the revulsion and violence evidenced on this board. If you want future children to live and not wind up in the woods or in dumpsters, you’ll stop all this talk of executing pedophiles. Like the war on drugs, your methods and attitudes don’t work.

          If you want the problem solved a few things need to happen. 1. Stop all the calls for violence against pedophiles. 2. Allow pedophiles access to ‘virtual simulations’ and websites which don’t use actual children. 3. Encourage pedophiles to be open and honest with therapists in a safe and non judgmental atmosphere. 4. Protect your children and know their whereabouts at all times. Pedophiles, like drugs, aren’t going away. They’ve been around since the beginning of time. Either you’re going to get wise and deal with the issue in a safe and intelligent manner or you’ll repeat the same old visceral mistakes of the past. Emotions don’t solve issues, brains do.

            Really? You don’t see a difference between someone who murders a child and someone with sexual fantasies for children? You do understand what death is right? A complete abscense of all bodily activity. Irreversible. Sexual molestation involves the attitudes of the culture as to how damaging it is or isn’t upon a child. Your values are very warped if you are unable to qualify the 2.

            A child should never be forced or coerced to take part in adult fantasies. What do you think happens to a child that is taken advantage in this way?? The child has died, what they were and who they would have been has forever been changed.

            I think the point I was making is that sex in and of itself is a bodily function requisite for human reproduction. Sex is also used as a tool for achieving pleasure and release of tension. Sex is also used unfortunatrly as a tool of power and abuse. There are many ways that sex can be applied. In and of itself sex is not inherently a shameful act. That it is considered shameful is a product of the morays of the culture and times we live in. I’m sensing that you may have had a creepy sexual experience with an unauthorized adult and that has formulated your beliefs. I say that if sexuality was considered universally acceptable it would be perhaps viewed in a different capacity then it currently is. At present, of course pleasurable contact with a child is harmful to that child. You are aware that biological pregnancy has occurred on 9 year olds so that is a point best taken up with nature and God.

            You need to understand why I have adopted the seemingly defensive postures of “pedophiles” as I appear to do. It is not because I am a pedophile or that I particularly believe or promote adults having sexual contact with children. I’m doing this because look at what people are suggesting happen to pedophiles. They want them beaten to death, lethally injected, shot with guns, and other forms of life depriving and violent actions. If that is the case, then society should make DAMN SURE the actions of killing pedophiles is entirely justified. And as I have analyzed, any reasonable person would need to come to the conclusion that calls for death upon pedophiles is NOT JUSTIFIED. Imagine if you were arguing this before the Supreme Court and the Court was determining if pedophiles should be executed. I would have no choices as a defense attorney but to wage every logical argument and offer every bit of evidence to defend my client. And pointing out the reality that some 9 year olds are able to become pregnant would lend to the argument that despite current laws, biologically speaking so-called “children’ are wired for sexual activity. That is fact. I know ur emotions may suggest otherwise but that is biological reality. So while it may not cause pedophilia to become legal, it may at least stop the executions of pedophiles, which is the correct action for the Court to take.

            Face it: pedophillia is one of those uncomfortable grey areas of life that people have visceral gut reactions over. With the rule of law and analytical thinking behind the law, critical thinkers would arrive at the same conclusion I have: large swaths of society frown upon the idea of sexualizing children so laws must be crafted to support that revulsion, but the laws cannot go so far as to override logic and scientific evidence, as well as common sense. Common sense dictates that if biological life forms are imbued with the organs for reproduction and sexual pleasure, it would be unjust and illogical to execute or severely punish some humans who choose to honor or explore this biological timeline-even when so many feel the timeline to be inappropriate or deny its reality. Just saying “because we say so” is the rule of dictatorship, not a clear reasoned well thought out law or temperament.

            It seems to me the better approach to dealing with pedophilliacs is to assess what age they are sexualizing children, and analyze their reasons for doing so. Were they molested as a child and they are trying to normalize it? Are they curious about the sexual cycles and developments of human beings? Are they trying to promote a sensual world as a means to heal the violence and reclaim innocence? Michael Jackson comes to mind when I think of the last point. Whether parents want to accept this or not: 15 year old females are typically having sex. I remember from high school days “Little 15” was the age so many lost their virginity. So obviously despite the laws, females are doing it anyway.

            Here’s my postulation: I am suggesting that the incidences of molestation that end up in abduction and death of the child may be DIRECTLY related to society’s zero tolerance policy on pedophilia and the beatings, deaths, and long prison sentences that result. Granted, I realize the pedophiliacs who are abductors are very dangerous to society and they should be imprisoned for life. The Mikey Klunder case comes to mind. Anyone who would let their sexual fantasies and / or curiosity get so out of whack they would abduct and kill children needs to be put to death. But again, it is not conclusive that all pedophiles resort to murder and abduction, just as all Muslims do not engage in radical Islam and Jihad. There are numerous facets to the sexualizing of children as I have “touched on” (sorry bad pun). I guess I like delving into controversial taboo issues, because they are fascinating in that society considers them so taboo that one cannot even think or ponder on the issue for fear of being labeled and scorned for having done so. I think perhaps Jews in Germany were regarded in the same way.

      Again, more violence, hurt and shame…all emitting from society’s animosity against homosexuals. You feel revulsion and hatred because you feel ashamed to be thought of as homosexual. That’s the origin of your hatred and desire for violence. I’m not condoning or encouraging molestation, what I’m doing is saying the victimization originates from biases and prejudices present in society originating in deep seated religious indoctrination. I’m also saying the calls for extreme violence against pedophiles are unjustified and in themselves problematic. If we lived in a world where pleasure was held to be paramount, no one would regard sexual stimulation at any age to be a dirty or immoral practice. And I do believe the trends are reversing as evidenced by the new generational embrace of open sexuality. Quite simply the punishments you all wish to mete out don’t fit the ‘crime’. With that said, I do believe pedophiles should be relegated to special communities where no children are allowed. They should be allowed virtual fantasies because that is a freedom of thought issue. Censorship and violence are the real problems.

In another 30 years sexuality and the human body will be naturally exhibited in all its glory, and all the hating bs of this era will be viewed with contempt and pity. There’s some very ugly spirited violent people who call themselves Americans and they have acted as moral bullies. It’s only sex, just another bodily function. No one needs to die over the matter. Miley Cyrus has done a lot to shatter the sexual repression of yesterday’s generations.

If at anytime a person can look at a child especially a SMALL CHILD and have fantasies or lust they are freaks of nature and do not deserve to live. And anyone that feels they have the right to their desires are just a sick as they are. NOBODY on this earth has a right to harm a child and leave them scared for the rest of that child’s life.

      Cultural Conditioning Reply Report comment

      January 22, 2016 at 7:14 pm

      Still not buying the bullshit. As has already been proven: the cultural practices determine whether a human feels shameful or “scarred”. And in a free universe, a human being has the right to fantasize or think about anything they want. If someone achieves sexual gratification from thinking of a child, that is their right, and it’s not your right nor society’s right to end their life or harm them in any way. Now, if an adult acts on their fantasies, yes they should be imprisoned, not because the act is intrinsically wrong-culture determines that, but because presently yes it is considered wrong and therefore children are programmed to think sexuality is wrong. Either way, calling for someone to be executed is the real moral crime. You may not personally want to accept this truth, but if society embraced sexuality openly and freely, children would not grow up with any stigma. The disgust arises from your own conditioning. Obviously no parent would want some sicko stranger touching their children, but they shouldn’t be leaving their kids alone with anyone they don’t trust.

        Look at the openness of sexuality in today’s culture. Men and women everywhere are openly posing naked on the Internet. Setting between teens is rampant. Even Miley Cyrus is openly displaying herself naked on stage and in photos. The culture has a general sense that sex is “no big deal”. The harm you speak of is becoming non existent. Your attitudes here are both violent and outdated and represent the real threat to society. It could be surmised that the reason children end up dead by the hands of pedophiles is because of the violent consequences they face if caught. Change society’s attitude and you might just save a child’s life. The “open season” on pedophiles has done nothing but inflate the issue and severity of outcomes. Pedophiles can be dealt with like they did in the old days: watch your children and socially ostracize them. The dangerous ones should be locked up, but a peaceful pedophile who fantasizes about children is less dangerous to society than the thugs who assault and murder them
        in prison. I’d rather have a pedophile in the neighborhood than a gangbanger. Creepy…sure, but not the dnd of the world.

        And I need to expand deeper on the notion of environment. If a Utopian world were developed where nudity was considered normal and acceptable and pleasure was considered virtuous and expected…human beings would be reared to know no shame, of their bodies or its various functions. Defecating would be seen as a way to return nutrients to the soil, urination, as a way to expel excess water for thirsty plants. And sexual organs would be a pathway to divinity and the stars. Parents would control their children’s sexuality in a way that protected them from unwanted intrusions but would not shame or castigate them for exploring their own sexuality….at whatever age that may be. I’ve seen hippy communities that somewhat emulate this idea, but never fully to its true Utopian potential. I believe society would be much more peaceful were such practices adopted.

      There you go, inserting the automatic assumptions. No P.O. here, and not a pedophile. What I am is a person who is tired of seeing this violent culture continue with its seemingly state-sanctioned proxy violence program. The Dept of Corrections needs MAJOR overhauls, and going after sick pedophiles as lamb offerings to violent offenders is indicative of the need for reform. In Africa, women walk around topless and its normal. Men molest and disfigure female vaginas and it’s normal to them. The culture determines the normalcy or shame and the act of rubbing the genitals to achieve pleasure is widely done. Even children do it to themselves. If she’s 17 or 18 determines whether a man goes to prison and could have his life ended by this encouraged violence. That’s messed up, and I don’t like seeing it occur unchallenged.

They use it as an excuse to act out their violent fantasy tendencies. While it’s not desirable to have adults molesting children, the reality is the children aren’t as harmed as society pretends they are. Sexual morays are determined by sexual attitudes by the culture. If sex is dirty and shameful by society’s standards, then obviously children molested will feel dirty and shameful. I’m just not buying the bullshit anymore.
