13 Reasons Why People Abuse

14. They suffer from boredom and/or, often, see these activities as
 sport or entertainment, for themselves and others

15. They desire affirmation and agreeable social acceptance, 
particularly in the case of ex-offenders, seeking societal redemption

16. They live empty or unfulfilled or underachieved lives,
often related to low cognitive ability and/or limited education

17. They battle against the cognitive dissonance and ego-dystonia of their
own minor-attracted sexuality

18. They seek financial/career development profit i.e. moral entrepreneurs

19. They believe they are carrying out a 'Social Good'

20. They direct, or deflect, or transfer, their hate and anger on to (seen by them) 
a legitimate 'Other', as others are not now, legally, available for attack
i.e. they are often linked to intolerant, nationalist, Right-wing, prejudiced, 
organisations e.g. BNP/EDL/UKIP, or, less-commonly, the regressive Left

21. They suffer from false fears (see 9), based on societal hysteria, vested
interest profiteers and ignorance

A Look at a Hitherto Unrecognized Hyperaggression Syndrome Affecting Some Heterosexuals.

"Executive Summary 

"Encounters with distinctive, repeating patterns of extreme rage on the internet, coming from individuals imagining nonexistent threats to children, occasioned a re-examination of various situations where irrational fury arises in the hypothetical protection of children, the child-raising environment, or child-like innocence.

A novel hypothesis proposes that rage behavior that originally evolved to enable parents to defend children vigorously from predatory wildlife and hostile humans can be triggered in a way that verges on psychosis in sufferers of a disorder termed Heterosexual Hyperaggression Syndrome (HHS).

Sufferers of this syndrome tend to experience dramatically irrational rages that go far beyond the basic needs for vigilance and emergency arousal in child-care.

The heterosexual sexual orientation is named in the terminology partly because the rage behavior is endemic to real, imagined or remembered situations involving the raising of children, a normative concomitant of heterosexuality, but also in conformity with existing sexual differentiation ‘disorder’ categories, i.e., paraphilic ‘disorders,’ named in The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5).

The article suggests that irrational child protection rage in seriously affected HHS sufferers may be pathologically triggered in various ways leading to physical and sexual assaults on the children themselves, thus accounting for a substantial proportion of the over 450 children per year murdered by parents and step-parents in the USA. As well, HHS may account for many cases of violent sexual acts misconstrued as ‘situational pedophilia,’ i.e., parental or step-parental rape or prolonged sadistic, incestuous sexual abuse of children.

The regular occurrence of irrational child protection rage in moral and ethnic panics, such as historic anti-Semitic blood libels about ‘killing Christian babies,’ or lynchings of African-American youth based on real or imaginary sexual interest in white youth, is also discussed in the general context of HHS. In addition, ultra-violent, romantic social quests for atavistic innocence, such as the ISIS movement and Pol Pot’s communistic agrarian innocence campaign, are explored for connections to HHS-fueled rage in a minority of highly disturbed heterosexual individuals. The documentation of clearly defined HHS behavior in the Judaeo-Christian-Islamic story of Lut or Sodom is given a realistic context outside of traditional interpretations mistakenly implicating homosexual sexual orientation."
