Not gonna go too far down this rabbit hole, but think about that for more than a meme-o-sec.

I'm legit curious why you think drug addicts and pedophiles are similar.

Because they are, far as we are concerned, both addicted to their behavior and both cause significant damage to themselves and society. Kids too.

I would only agree with this statement if drugs were living, conscious, innocent beings that deserve our protection and will one day grow up to be functioning, non-victimizing members of their drug society.

I’d have to agree with fredo there. One is more in your face drymounted up things people do, while the other is not so much. Which one damages more lives, including children? I would bet the latter.

P. S. Do I get pint of delicious hopwired?

According to the DSM-5, pedophilia is considered a mental disorder. It's not an addiction. Calling it an addiction would be like calling homosexuality an addiction.

Now that is weak sauce. How is a child rapist causing damage to themselves?

Oh, so we're telling the mentally ill it's cool to pre-emptively kill themselves? Well!

Ps Effectively, to us outsiders it's an addiction is what I said.

We should also be clear, there is a difference between a pedophile (someone sexually attracted to prepubescent children), and a child molester (someone who acts on his/her sexual attraction towards children). People amassing child porn collections like the Glee dipshit are somewhere in between, but clearly more toward the molester than the pedophile, IMO. It's no longer victim-less, even if the victims are indirect.

Jesus Christ, is this bizarro land? Comparing child rapists to drug abusers? That's insane. Somebody's moral compass is a bit in disrepair. :shock:
So it goes...
