You’re 16. You’re a Pedophile. You Don’t Want to Hurt Anyone. What Do You Do Now?
"The last time I saw Adam in person we found ourselves sitting, once again, in his car. We had been talking for a few hours and were about to finish up when I asked him what it feels like to be not only a pedophile, but something of a pioneer. He paused for a moment before answering. “It’s one part of what defines me. You know, a small part of the puzzle,” he said. “Part of me is a pedophile but that’s not all I am. I’m also, I think, a very decent person in a lot of other ways. I’m definitely a very caring person… I have hobbies, I have interests, I have studies, and things like that all put together define who I am."

522: Tarred and Feathered - Help Wanted.
"There's one group of people that is universally tarred and feathered in the United States and most of the world. We never hear from them, because they can't identify themselves without putting their livelihoods and reputations at risk. That group is pedophiles.
It turns out lots of them desperately want help, but because it's so hard to talk about their situation it's almost impossible for them to find it. Reporter Luke Malone spent a year and a half talking to people in this situation, and he has this story about one of the."

Why Matter’s Story About Pedophilia Included a Graphic Account of Abuse
"Those of us at our computers or on phones aren’t entitled to the protection of propriety or politeness; we shouldn’t be shielded by omission; we shouldn’t be sheltered by some vague phrase like “a video of unimaginable horror” because we’d never imagine just how horrible it really was. We can only read what was done to him, and realize—as Adam did—that it happened to an actual child. We can only read what was done to him, and be destroyed by it.
Some stories should ruin your afternoon, the rest of your day, your whole week. This is one of them."

@bylukemalone @marklotto @ReadMatter 'That boy' was a 'literary fabrication', for effect - and you know it.

Virtuous Pedophiles group gives support therapy cannot
"It's difficult to imagine such a curse. Who can they tell? From their point of view, they can't tell a therapist, they can't tell their parents, their peers, their boyfriends, girlfriends," said Cantor. "They are as alone as a person can be."

Expert warns against labelling 12-year-old Lethbridge boy charged with incest as a pedophile
“It’s one of the running jokes in my field, how impossible it is to get a research grant to work on solving a problem that every single person in society wants us to be working on."
Cantor said the justice system does have a role to play but ideally the time to intervene is before the problem gets to that point.
“We’ve already failed the kid by the time the kid is in jail – almost always a boy."
One admitted pedophile said it doesn't appear the Lethbridge boy should be in court.
"My immediate reaction (to the news report) is that there's no reason to think this boy is a pedophile," said Ethan Edwards (a pseudonym), who runs Virtuous Pedophiles, a web site that aims to help pedophiles control their urges. He said he's never acted on his."
