I just had the chance to see how full of hatred and stuborness can people be. Sad. Very sad. What I did was to post on a facebook page Dreamcatchers for Abused Children this:
The reaction was quick and hateful:efix píše:Would you please remove the word "pedophiles" from your misson statement and keep just child molesters? Not all pedophiles are child molesters and many pedophiles never harm a child in their lifetime. Please, be fair.
That same person posted this statement on the wall of the group and here are some of the responses:No, I will not. Pedophiles, child molesters, child rapists, etc...they are ALL THE SAME!
DEFINITION OF CHILD MOLESTER: someone who hurts a child by touching them in a sexual way or forcing them to do sexual acts. Synonyms of child molester: Miscellaneous criminal, pervert, abductor, accessory, child molester, con artist, confidence trickster, conman, conwoman, hoodlum, rapist, sex offender, thug, villain, sodomite, abuser, blackmailer, child predator.
DEFINITION OF PEDOPHILE: an adult who is sexually attracted to children. A pedophile is an adult who is sexually attracted to pre-pubertal children. Synonyms of pedophile: paedophile, pederast, pedophile, peeping Tom, perv, pervert, sodomite, child predator.
In my opinion, anyone who is SEXUALLY ATTRACTED TO CHILDREN is mentally ill and should be labeled as such; thus, our mission statement will remain as is!
Now, kindly remove yourself from this page, or I will.
Is he serious?
ANYONE WHO IS SEXUALLY ATTRACTED TO A CHILD, ACTS ON IT, OR WATCHES CHILD PORN IS MENTALLY ILL!!!! We do not care what "label" is used to describe these sick individuals, they are all the same. We will continue to call them as we see them: CHILD RAPISTS.
I'm sorry but what a dumbass. No, I'm not sorry.
"Please, be fair?" .... Did he really ask us that???? WERE THE CHILD VICTIMS GIVEN A CHANCE TO SAY NO? Is what happens to them FAIR? Are the YEARS of emotional stress the victims are left with FAIR.
GOOD ANSWER. THAT PERSON Is PROBABLY A PED. SICK TWISTED MIND
great response, wish this person could be reported, is he preying on a site to see children and read the stories? is he getting a rush out of it? What a sick individual
Stunned that someone would be so pretentious, what the...?
Is he really serious??? Anyone who is sexually attracted to a child is a sick individual. Thru my eyes they are and will always be child rapists!!!
I responded with a text I posted on a different page:A person who rapes children deserves death...don't kid yourself. If a dog has rabies, we kill it....the same thing with pedophiles...a need to put them to death.
...and then I was banned.efix píše:You may have misunderstood me - I am not defending people who abuse children. NO WAY! When somebody harms a child, he deserves punishment. And also we should try to prevent these kinds of crime. What I am pointing out is that calling all pedophiles child offenders is simply not right and may even cause more abuses. Let me explain why. Imagine a young guy who just realized he is somewhat attracted to young girls. He feels emotional attraction as well as some erotic attraction. He doesn't want to harm them, he just likes them. He also hears from every side that pedophiles (=people who are attracted to children) are sick monsters and they all abuse children (or at least desperately want to abuse them). What choices does he have? He has to keep the secret to himself fearing that telling some about his feelings could result in hatred, fear, etc. This way he also can't get any professional help and he can't prepare himself for potentionally risky situation. Then one day by accident he finds himself alone with a girl and ... Or he doesn't even have to get into this kind of situation; he may start to think that since every pedophile abuses child, he has no other option than to abuse one - that is what the society expects of pedophiles, right? Or there is a third situation: he may become alone with his feelings, depressed, unable to see any hope. And when he thinks he has nothing to lose, he decides to at least "have some fun". We can prevent this from happening! We need to stop treating all pedophiles as monsters just because they have feelings for children. Let them know what they can do about it! Help them find guidance! This is what, eventually, will help protect our children!
This is what I have to say. My mission is to lower the number of abused children. My means are different, though.
And they call us sick...
That ... is ... very ... discouraging ...
