Homosexuality, in the UK, was criminalised until circa 1969 for individuals over the age of 21 and then further changed to ages of 16 in 2000
I use this example to demonstrate that noone chooses who they are sexually attracted to because this was one of the main arguments, both ultimately and correctly, to ratify acceptance of the gay movement.
Now, before your emotions write off what you think I may be suggesting, please try and accept that there is a difference between paedophilia (a sexual attraction to pre-pubescent children) and child abuse (a physical act involving children) .
Noone has any control of who they are attracted to. If you cannot understand or realise this, then leave now.
To find yourself attracted to children is a life sentence. It's a life where you are perpetually on edge, second guessing yourself and constantly wondering what others may be thinking during any interactions you have with children....
Its an horrific existence caused by both self loathing and the thoughts of what others think of you as well as being bereft of any sympathy or understanding to what you are trying to deal with from others.
Let me be clear. Child abuse is completely wrong and should be punished but vilifying paedophila is the same as vilifying homosexuality. It's not a choice.
What say you?
