It also doesn't make much sense for such larger numbers since that should be reflected in offences or attitudes within society. You know how paedophilia is viewed - does it really make any sense for all those people to be deceiving themselves? A percentage of about 30% is large enough anyway and this might effect some changes in attitudes if it is truly correct.
Even if it is just 30%, I think most people would be shocked to know that when they say they want to viciously torture/kill all preteen-attracted adults, they would have to kill/torture 700 million people (6.7 billion (world population)*.5 (% male)*.7 (% adult) *.3 (% attracted to under 12) … Or that they would have skin-alive, then burn 1/3 of their male relatives.
I know it seems like I’m carrying on and on… BUT this really bothers me, I think it’s ridiculous that NON-offending people with preteen-attractions are persecuted, stereotypes, and hated. I also find it very hard to believe that most people think preteen girls are unattractive. It’s not just this study, it’s also other things like, for example, the fact that nearly all YouTube videos with preteens are mostly watched by adult men.
I mean seriously, what about them is so ugly and sick. When I look at girls like, for example, AnnaSophia Robb, Victoria Justice, Elle Fanning, Chloe Moretz (even when they were 11yo)
, I see a beautiful/adorable face and healthy physique. What is it about their appearance that is so sick or ugly?
Maybe people just feel that way because they falsely assume that everyone with an attraction to preteen girls wants to have sex with preteen girls. However, I would argue that this is NOT true. I think one can have an attraction without even having a desire for sex. That’s how I am. I do think preteen girls are attractive, but I do NOT desire sex. In fact, I think sex is gross. I’m a virgin and I never intend to lose my virginity. In fact, I’m so disgusted by explicit sex, that I use parental controls when browsing the net. I’m not really that young, BUT I feel much too young to be watching such material. I do like beautiful women (girls too), but I’d much rather see innocent pictures than sex ones. I wonder though, if having an attraction, without having any desire for sex is even pedophilia?
I mean, don’t hear me wrong, I do admit that the idea of cuddling or something does sounds nice. I also admit that I sometimes get hard when I see a beautiful girl/woman, BUT the whole idea of penetration just seems nasty. It seems weird, and it seems like it would hurt. I'd much rather just meet a nice girl (or woman) I could just hang-out with (watch fun movies, play games, laugh with, educate, go hiking with, listen to, comfort, protect, help, make happy, travel with, etc.). My most controversial thoughts
(NOT behavior (in real life I wouldn't/haven't done any of the following things with an underage girl)) involve hugging, cuddling, caressing, and kissing (but NOT sex). So what do you-all think? Is this even pedophilia?
Also, I'm attracted to preteens, teens, and fully grown/fully matured adults (e.g., I love Charlize Theron (37yo))
