Ah, there are the shallow attempts to equate sexual orientation and gender identity with pedophilia!
The difference of course in "being born that way" and pedophilia is that the former regards adults.
Pedophilia is a crime because it does harm to children, and this will always be the case.
I do find it fascinating though that these threads about pedophilia are almost always started by certain groups .... It's almost like there is some sick fascination on the part of a few folks.
The fine line here is trying to prevent an action without that action being normalised or being desensitised to it, where it seems less of a crime. I have been watching a slow push over the last few years to do just that. From lawyers arguing that paedophiles should have rights because it is a natural preference (citing homosexuality as the basis for that argument) to more news articles, hints in films and even comedy programmes all desensitising us to the acceptability of illegal and atrocious actions.
If as shown in other threads that Facebook got a head start by an alphabet agency, what better way for the State to have leverage over people than through polls like these?
Who needs a standing army to quash internal dissent when your "views" are used against you?

I'm a bit late to check if the story is true or not. It sounded a bit OTT and turns out to be mostly false.
CLAIM: Predators, pedophiles, and child trafficking rings are using Facebook to source new victims by friending trusting parents and mining images posted of their children.

So in the future i will be called Pedophobic! They are clearly slowling creating a soft acceptance! Someone is messing with a wasp nest here, and they are responding.
