Free speech, huh? I'm here to answer questions and dispel myths and stereotypes associated with pedophilia. My first and most important goal is to convince people I, along with other pedophiles are not "evil" simply for finding minors attractive and that there's differences between pedophiles and child rapists. For the record, no, I've never had sex with a child. My views are very similar to this man's, Lindsay Ashford. If you have 30 minutes please watch the following interview with an open mind. I'm hoping we can all be mature about this because all I get on YouTube is "DIE MOTHER FUCKER, DIE".

EDIT: I was unsure whether to put this here or Protest so if a staff member needs to move this, my apologies.

How about putting this in the Real Kinky forum? I don't think this is the place, although I can understand why you put it here.

Don't worry we won't ban you or delete your posts, so long as you follow the forum guidelines.

Warning to everyone...
Do NOT attack this person for speaking his mind or you will be in violation of the forum guidelines.

This is a very "touchy" subject, and despite ppl's preconceptions this person has every right to speak his mind.

Just don't post up any porn images or text and you'll be fine.

If you're implying child porn, I don't watch it and have no intention on posting anything like that here.

Wow, totally different vibe here then YouTube.

there is no differenece? that got me. there is a huge difference between looking at underage girls and raping them.

girls mature (physically as well as mentally) eariler than boys, no shit, growth hormones in food make our development eariler (before we can deal with it? that is a debate). but actually acting out on impulse is different. maybe your sick, or maybe our society isn't recognizing something in the male gender that is real, and includes alot of them, whatever, but touching and fantasing in my opinion, and law, are vastly different.

a friend of mine touched me the other day, without permission. he is no longer a friend. but understand your fucking girls mentally when you do that to them. it isn't just sex, it's so much more to them, and it hurts deeply.

This post is about no specific individual.
It is about pedophiles in general.

Year ago, I knew a child that was sexually molested by someone that only thought of little boys, at first.

Those thoughts eventually translated into action,
and the boy ended up killing himself as a result.

I urge all parents to know your facts and be always vigilant.

The following information was retrived from Ask.com.


Pedophiles Can Be Anyone: Pedophiles can be anyone -- old or young, rich or poor, educated or uneducated, non-professional or professional, and of any race. However, pedophiles often demonstrate similar characteristics, but these are merely indicators and it should not be assumed that individuals with these characteristics are pedophiles. But knowledge of these characteristics coupled with questionable behavior can be used as an alert that someone may be a pedophile.

Characteristics of a Pedophile :
  • Often the pedophile is male and over 30 years of age.
  • Single or with few friends in his age group.
  • If married, the relationship is more "companion" based with no sexual relations.
  • He is often vague about time gaps in employment which may indicate a loss in employment for questionable reasons or possible past incarceration.
Pedophiles Like Child-like Activities:
  • He is often fascinated with children and child activities appearing to prefer those activities to adult oriented activities.
  • He will often refer to children in pure or angelic terms using descriptives like innocent, heavenly, divine, pure, and other words that describe children but seem inappropriate and exaggerated.
  • He has hobbies that are child-like such as collecting popular expensive toys, keeping reptiles or exotic pets, or building plane and car models.
Pedophiles Often Prefer Children Close to Puberty:
  • Pedophiles often have a specific age of child they target. Some prefer younger children, some older.
  • Often his environment or a special room will be decorated in child-like decor and will appeal to the age and sex of the child he is trying to entice.
  • Many pedophiles often prefer children close to puberty who are sexually inexperienced, but curious about sex.
Pedophiles Work Around Children: The pedophile will often be employed in a position that involves daily contact with children. If not employed, he will put himself in a position to do volunteer work with children, often in a supervisory capacity such as sports coaching, contact sport instruction, unsupervised tutoring or a position where he has the opportunity to spend unsupervised time with a child.

The Target Child: The pedophile often seeks out shy, handicapped, and withdrawn children, or those who come from troubled homes or under privileged homes. He then showers them with attention, gifts, taunting them with trips to desirable places like amusement parks, zoo's, concerts, the beach and other such places.

Manipulation of the Innocent: Pedophiles work to master their manipulative skills and often unleash them on troubled children by first becoming their friend, building the the child's self esteem. They may refer to the child as special or mature, appealing to their need to be heard and understood then entice them with adult type activities that are often sexual in content such as x-rated movies or pictures. They offer them alcohol or drugs to hamper their ability to resist activities or recall events that occurred.

Stockholm Syndrome : It is not unusual for the child to develop feelings for the predator and desire their approval and continued acceptance. They will compromise their innate ability to decipher good and bad behavior, ultimately justifying the criminal's bad behavior out of sympathy and concern for the adults welfare. This is often compared to Stockholm Syndrome - when victims become attached emotionally to their captors.

The Single Parent: Many times pedophiles will develop a close relationship with a single parent in order to get close to their children. Once inside the home, they have many opportunities to manipulate the children -- using guilt, fear, and love to confuse the child. If the child's parent works, it offers the pedophile the private time needed to abuse the child.

Fighting Back: Pedophiles work hard at stalking their targets and will patiently work to develop relationships with them. It is not uncommon for them to be developing a long list of potential victims at any one time. Many of them believe that what they are doing is not wrong and that having sex with a child is actually "healthy" for the child.

Almost all pedophiles have a collection of pronography, which they protect at all costs. Many of them also collect "souvenirs" from their victims. They rarely discard either their porn or collections for any reason.

One factor that works against the pedophile is that eventually the children will grow up and recall the events that occurred. Often pedophiles are not brought to justice until such time occurs and victims are angered by being victimized and want to protect other children from the same consequences.

Laws such as Megan's Law - a federal law passed in 1996 that authorizes local law enforcement agencies to notify the public about convicted sex offenders living, working or visiting their communities, have helped expose the pedophile and allows parents to better protect their children.

Gee, that behavior is consistant with the pedophiles I've been unfortunate enough to run in to. I daresay others who've been molested by a pedophile or have had a loved one molested by a pedophile would recognize these red flags as well.

Thank you, AncientHippie. I think many others will find the information you posted to be valuable.

there IS a reason for sterotypes, usually.... it's b/c alot of people follow patterns that can be catorgorized, if not individually, than in a group setting, that can be used to predict future behavior. It is an innate part of the human consciousness. Just some people excess in it to the point of justifying hate crimes, which is unacceptable, and unreasonable as well.

not that sterotypes are always right, as this person mentioned, but they can serve as a tool to uncover those people that may harm others, with or without intent.

that isn't an excuse, "it's a sterotype", unless you don't fall under it, then you can bitch.

I couldn't have said this better myself. It's just a fact of life that like minded people often follow similar patterns of behavior. It's neglegent to know this, but act like it doesn't exist, especially when doing so can put others in harm's way.

That's right everyone.

You cannot insult this person, you must respect him so he can post up the forums about pedophilia, because this is "free speech forums", yet anti-feminists all seem to get flamed, and then banned. Go figure.

Free speech, huh? I'm here to answer questions and dispel myths and stereotypes associated with pedophilia. My first and most important goal is to convince people I, along with other pedophiles are not "evil" simply for finding minors attractive and that there's differences between pedophiles and child rapists. For the record, no, I've never had sex with a child. My views are very similar to this man's, Lindsay Ashford. If you have 30 minutes please watch the following interview with an open mind. I'm hoping we can all be mature about this because all I get on YouTube is "DIE MOTHER FUCKER, DIE".

Yup its free speech, you have mega guts for coming onto a WORLDWIDE forum and admitting your a pedophile or that you find minors attractive.
Alot of people wont find what your saying is right, And will find you pretty sick as we would if it was someone who like shagging horses.
Pedofiles arent all rapists - you only become a rapist when you have sex with someone without consent. I think we all understand that pedofiles are attracted to children - its when that attracted gets upped to the next level and they groom them, have sex with them etc.
Why is your name notamoster? thats a bit ermm wierd innit

Actually, everyone who has sex with a child, even with "consent", is a rapist. It's call statutory rape.

so basically ths guy can speak freely about his desires for children, and yet i can not say that i think pedophiles should be castrated and/or sexual crimes commited against children should have the death penalty as a possible sentence in court?

"I'm here to answer questions and dispel myths and stereotypes associated with pedophilia."

To what end? I've got some advice for you. If you are sexually attracted to children quit wasting your time on the internet and get yourself some medical attention before you hurt someone. I'll agree that it's a mental health issue and needs treatment like any other illness but just like drug addiction and depression and other psych issues it's up to the person who is ill to get help. Saying that, I completely respect your right to free speech and will consider your posts with an open mind. I just hope you understand I think (since we both have the right to speak our mind) that if someone knows they have an illness, won't seek treatment, and then commit an illegal act that could potentially ruin someones life then they belong in prison. That's not an accusation, just a statement. btw, what Ancient Hippie posted was meant to help parents protect their children, not to pigeonhole pedophiles. Personally I think (more hope) you're just someone posting this to guage people's reaction.

I think NotAMonster's main point is that there is a difference between paedophiles and child-molesters. He said himself:

For the record, no, I've never had sex with a child.

and:

If you're implying child porn, I don't watch it and have no intention on posting anything like that here.

He keeps within the law. Maybe it's just when he's walking down the street and see's a young child he get's urges, or thoughts he knows he shouldn't have. He doesn't act on them, and probably tries to fight the thoughts themselves.

If you are sexually attracted to children quit wasting your time on the internet and get yourself some medical attention before you hurt someone.

Whose to say he isn't doing just that? Several members of my family are alcoholics. Those who got help, and hence stopped drinking, still consider themselves alcoholics. Still go to meetings, call their sponsor, whatever. Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic. You might never drink again, but you'll always want to. There'll always be the chance you'll fall back off the wagon.
Maybe NotAMonster is getting help, but he's still a paedophile, and probably always will be. Counselling, group meetings.etc., might help him deal with his problem and keep it under control, but it won't make it disappear. He might be getting help, but he's still a paedophile, so he could still start this thread. Even if he left now, and started getting "medical attention" for 10 years, he'd still be a paedophile, and could still come back and repost this thread with it still being valid.
Maybe he isn't getting help. Can you blame him(maybe you can, but I'm sure you can understand his reasons for not)? He hasn't done anything wrong, and he hasn't broken any laws. It's his thoughts that need fixing. Thoughts that probably disgust him once they've passed, and thoughts he has had to keep secret for G-d knows how long. He goes to a doctor, or counsellor, and maybe a child in his area does get raped. Somehow, the police trace it back to him, and through the investigation his problem becomes a public shame, even though he did nothing. Or maybe he goes to a group meeting, and someone see's him.

He seems to be someone who knows such thoughts are wrong, and who won't ever act on them. He claims to never have till now. If someone posted saying he was a child-rapist, well then I'd have a problem. He hasn't done that.

I see the word MAYBE six different times in this post.
I could come up with some hypothetical situations about the original poster too, but it might be considered a personal attack. MAYBE my post would be deleted if I did that. Or MAYBE not.

I'm assuming you mean that he isn't just a paedophile, but a child-molester too? Based on what? He claims to be a paedophile, who doesn't look at child-porn, who has never had sex with a child, and who lives within the law. Why jump to the conclusion that he has raped a child, or any of the other "hypothetical situations" you could come up with? I used the word "maybe" so often because 1.)I don't know what it's like to be a paedophile, and 2.) I don't know what it's like to be this particular paedophile. He isn't saying sex with children is okay, or even that paedophilia is okay, he's saying he has a problem, he fights with it every day, and he's not a monster. He's done no real world harm(based on what he says, although obviously that's not enough for you...obviously having a desire is akin to living it out with you), so why vilify him for thoughts and desires whose appearance he has no control over, yet which he fights on a daily basis?

Peds should be executed AS SOON AS THEY'RE CAUGHT. Period.

But this is America so they're released back into the general population. Nice huh?

pedophile: an adult who is sexually attracted to children
wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

The original poster, and paedophiles in general, are attracted to children. It doesn't mean they've assaulted them. Are you suggesting someone should be executed for their thoughts and desires, for thought crime? How very orwellian.

This is just sick. Paedophiles should not be given ANY RIGHTS, people should know where they live/work/visit. And if they just happen to get beaten the shit out of by a member of public then so be it.
Tom

Again, thought crime. I assume you mean child-molestors should be given no rights? Should murderers be given rights? Rapists?
I'm not saying such people should not be punished, but they should still have rights. They are still people after all. Let's not lower ourselves to the level of savages.

You are more humane than I am.
I could think of punishments far worse than death.
The ACLU would never allow it,
even if the criminal is someone who likes to play "naked games" with little kids.

Please be advised that this post is not directed at the original poster,
but rather, is in reference to the pedophile community in general.

If I was to say " Please be advised that this post is not directed at the original poster,
but rather, is in reference to the african-american/Jewish/female community in general", when an african-american/Jewish/female started a topic, it would seem to be less offensive to the original poster, but on second reading would reveal itself to be much more offensive, to the poster and the community you're insulting. Yes, paedophiles have a problem. Yes, they can be dangerous. But many of them, perhaps including the original poster here, have not and will never do any wrong in the real world.

I hate paedophilia, but I also hate the knee-jerk reaction that comes with any mention of it. I've seen it on every forum I visit where the topic comes up. Poster after poster saying "They should be shot", "Yeah, they should be hung", "I can think of punishments much worse than death!", without anyone stopping to say it's a problem that needs help, paedophiles are people too, and even if someone is a child-molester, they have rights too, and should be punished within the laws we have created for ourselves...you know, the ones that help seperate us from animals, or savages. It just reminds me of the South Park episode with the time-immigrants with eveyone at the rallies saying "Now, come on people, we've got to think! Damnit, they took our jobs!","They took our jaorbs!", "Dey Tuk R Jarbs!".

Hmmm...for a forum supposedly populated by hippies, I'm sensing a lot of unnecessary hostility here.

I'm assuming you mean that he isn't just a paedophile, but a child-molester too? Based on what? He claims to be a paedophile, who doesn't look at child-porn, who has never had sex with a child, and who lives within the law. Why jump to the conclusion that he has raped a child, or any of the other "hypothetical situations" you could come up with? I used the word "maybe" so often because 1.)I don't know what it's like to be a paedophile, and 2.) I don't know what it's like to be this particular paedophile. He isn't saying sex with children is okay, or even that paedophilia is okay, he's saying he has a problem, he fights with it every day, and he's not a monster. He's done no real world harm(based on what he says, although obviously that's not enough for you...obviously having a desire is akin to living it out with you), so why vilify him for thoughts and desires whose appearance he has no control over, yet which he fights on a daily basis?

The original poster, and paedophiles in general, are attracted to children. It doesn't mean they've assaulted them. Are you suggesting someone should be executed for their thoughts and desires, for thought crime? How very orwellian.

Again, thought crime. I assume you mean child-molestors should be given no rights? Should murderers be given rights? Rapists?
I'm not saying such people should not be punished, but they should still have rights. They are still people after all. Let's not lower ourselves to the level of savages.

If I was to say " Please be advised that this post is not directed at the original poster,
but rather, is in reference to the african-american/Jewish/female community in general", when an african-american/Jewish/female started a topic, it would seem to be less offensive to the original poster, but on second reading would reveal itself to be much more offensive, to the poster and the community you're insulting. Yes, paedophiles have a problem. Yes, they can be dangerous. But many of them, perhaps including the original poster here, have not and will never do any wrong in the real world.

So you're going to try to convince people that a ped would never molest a kid if given the chance? I'm not buying it. If they're attacted to children they'd molest them too. You know it.

Oh and that South Park episode was a friggin' RIOT!

No, I'm saying there are some who would, and some, who through self-control and discipline would resist any of their urges no matter how strong. Everybody has violent urges...not everybody is a serial killer.
