I know y'all are going to jump on me for saying that, but honestly if as a sum up I should make a judgement for myself:
if it leads to more awareness, gives us a explanation why some act on it,
why it happens so often often from people you'd never expect,
how we can teach the kids to be smart about it, make them stick together, never leave your friend out of your eyes when you're out,
that it's not normal, for no reason ever should another grown up besides your parents see you naked or touch you, not in a pic, or video, not in real,
Then I guess, we need to really talk about from case to case to how it could have been avoided and what exactly the individual story behind it was.
Because genetic doesn't mean we have to accept it as fine, that's not how life works. People overcome their genes everyday. To some degree of course.
But at the same time we don't hunt down and abuse everybody who's addicted to nicotine or coffee, beat the obese nearly to death and shame everybody
who has the audacity to have red hair.
That is not to say I'm apologising, if there's a victim that's aweful and should never have taken place.
Just to be clear.
But somebody like Jerry from Cheer, he 19 in obvious emotional distress making advances asking for sexual favours etc. But kind of a kid himself,
mentally driven by something he himself doesn't even recognise for what it is.
You put in a box with a guy who has a porn production company, with stolen and bought kids in his cellar, where they live hell every day.
So we really got to keep differentiating what we're actually dealing with. I think the public has made it very clear that is not something society
will ever accept.
If it's genetics and purely lack of impulse control we got to talk about how one afflicted with such can live savely in our communities.
So if anything like that pops up that person gets a choice, chemical castration, surveillance of online activity and you see a therapist.
Because being gay is different too just saying, by the power of the magic words: consenting adults in love.
So I don't know where this conversation will lead to, but it's up to us where we want to go with this.
Just saying I don't want this! Doesn't make it go away.
Just like every other genetic predisposition, you have to make a choice. Can you live with it?
I mean there will always be horrible immoral people. But I bet there are those too who feel ashamed, helpless, abandoned by getting aroused from
children. And as a society we have a responsibility to help them not ever acting on it.
