My first post was a joke pointing out how this is the wrong approach but maybe I should elaborate a bit.
It's dangerous to believe that you can pick out a pedophile based on some cursory look over for decoder rings that indicate they are in a special
boys club. Worse that you will teach your child to look for such things as proof when in reality they probably won't see any of that and end up with
a false sense of security.
It's like having children run from the stranger with the "top hat and black trench coat" into Uncle Franks home where they actually do end up
molested. Honestly the threat is much deeper than that, and comes usually from those you know or are close to you and your family.
Trying to spot a pedophile by looking for a Pedo-bear wrist watch is kind of a joke. While some of them may be involved in groups (NAMBLA for
instance) that declares this to be normal behavior, seeks acceptance, and wear club items, they actually would be the ones that would tell you about
those affiliations since they aren't exactly trying to hide them.
They even have a website.
My distant cousin is in prison right now for molesting a young girl and I can tell you that he didn't walk around decked out in pedo-paraphernalia,
belong to any pedo-clubs, or give any indication he was a child molester and I came across him every so often at reunions.
That is closer to reality and although I wish they all just gave themselves away with silly gear, it isn't that simple.
You'll just spot some proud member of NAMBLA.
