Anyone suggesting that a person should be castrated or killed for looking at a drawing needs locking up themselves. Permanently.

We are discussing sick people who go trough their lives, having these sick urges, but never acts on them. That actually deserves a little respect.

My god, you all are to the point of pontificating over whether a destructive abomination that harms the innocent in another form should be illegal or legal. I am well on topic my friend. Listen to yourselves for godsakes

The people who would choose to use the animated stuff are ina way trying to control their urges, which is why i'm leaning towards the idea this might be something to help prevent child abuse and the viewing of real child abuse pornography. As i said if it saves once child then i am inclined to support it.
In general predatory child sex offenders tend to be male, less than average intelligent and are incapable of undertaking any prolonged period of grooming. They generally fit into a stereotypical offender profile, living alone or with a parent, unemployed or in low paid work and unable to form adult relationships.
Their cycle of offending is also typical and begins with the basic attraction and sexual arousal by thoughts of children. Such a person will typically be in possession of either child erotica or child pornography with which he will fantasize and masturbate. At this stage he can certainly be described as, and fits the definition of, a paedophile. However, other than possessing child pornography, which is not an offence in many countries, he does not commit any offences. The reason why this type of person does not proceed beyond this stage is as a result of internal and external inhibitors or both.
Internal inhibitors are personal factors which control a person's behavior. The knowledge that it is morally wrong to sexually abuse a child or that sexual activity with a child can seriously damage the mental welfare of his victim in the future.
External inhibitors are far more basic and evolve around the fear of being caught and going to prison linked with the knowledge that their personal lifestyle would be seriously affected if it became public that they are sexually attracted to children.
Once the internal and external inhibitors have been removed, possibly by a period of stress or boredom then the peadophile moves into the cycle of offending.
