This video looks faked to me, but it does bring up some interesting questions and the way society
has changed lately.
Pedophilia has been around forever, but in this age of instant information, and with the anonymity
provided by our bulging civic populations we are much more aware of the problem today. Thus we
see every potential adult as a threat.
I have been very close to pedophilia, not touched myself, but having been very close friends
during the last few years of school with a man who ended up in prison twice for molestation
of children, his own included. Having known this person intimately I can affirm that you CANNOT
TELL who is a potential threat. There were no signs, no warnings, nothing....nothing but normal
I have a feeling this is going to turn into a long post....but....
I am one of those guys who attracts kids and dogs--always been kind of proud of that in egotistical
kind of way, but the truth is I prefer the company of children quite often over the company of adults.
Children are honest, I'm honest, adults are full of crap most of the time, and in my experience children
still ask the most interesting and important questions, and provide truthful answers as well when
queried about life and philosophy and the like. So Sarte and Nietzsche and their contrived educated
BS be damned...I'll take honesty over education any day....
So anyway....I'm at my 25 year class reunion sitting in the backyard on a lawn chair chatting with
an old friend and when a two or three year old climbs up in my lap and settles in, very happy to
be there. I'm a little uncomfortable, because I know this can be perceived and I don't know this
kid from Adam. So I push him down and he climbs back up and then another kid, I guess jealous
of the first, starts climbing in my lap from the other side, and then here comes the mom....and then
the dad....and it was tense for second, I admit.....I hate the hairy eyeball being thrown at me, but these
parents were probably justified. Using a little empathy I can see how I would have been HIGHLY suspicious..
But my friend bailed me out and explained the situation (although he thought I knew the kids) plus I knew
the dad from school, and that helped.
Anyway, from now on, I expect I'll be a tad more prudent. Though things like this have happened alot in
my life....I think it's because of my philosophy. I treat kids as equals. This thirty thousand days we spend
on this planet is nothing compared to the eternity we spend together in other incarnations--and just
because I happen to be older and more experienced in this incarnation does not make me any more, or
less, important than any child (or anyone for that matter, including the president and the pope)..
I guess showing respect to others as individuals is an attractive quality....I dunno?
I think it's sad that some people come pre-wired for sexual deviance. I don't believe we choose
what we find sexually attractive....I know I never did, if that were the case my wife wouldn't have such
a fine collection of stockings and high heels, but my kinks fall within the norms of society...
It would be a hard life to have either been born with, or acquired sexual proclivities that fall outside the
norm...and pedophilia would be the worst....that being said, there are probably many more
pedophiles walking around who never act on their impulses because they possess a healthy, workable
conscience...than those who do act for lack of self-control......and to me that is the scariest part
