Uh, so the condition is that he has to tell each of his over 18 year old patient that he's a paedophile?

Why the fark bother, just go live under a bridge then. His life is ruined.

He could go into the field of treating pedophiles who've yet to offend, which is understudied and under served.

He might not be the best guy for it, though.

A child psychologist who is into child porn. In today's world it is more and more difficult to find examples of pure evil. This one comes close.

The reason it is under served is because the psychologist has to report you if they think you're a danger. If they haven't offended yet, they are unlikely to take the risk that the psychologist might think they are a danger. That's an awful lot of trust.

For his position as child psychologist to matter he would have to be abusing that position in some way, but that is not what he was charged with, which may have just been downloading child porn off the internet. There might be more to the story, but just off of what we know you can easily find better examples of "pure evil".

No.
He's not gettin off that easy. He is pure evil.
Let's repeat: He is a child psychiatrist who downloaded child porn.
He gets his sexual satisfaction from watching child porn and he is treating the same age range in a one on one environment in his office when you know what is going thru his mind.
What do you think the parents of ones he has treated are saying/thinking should be done with this guy.

That field would be best served by giving anybody willing to come forward a cyanide pill and a healthy dose of cheerful, can-do attitude on why they should self-selectively remove themselves from the gene pool before they hurt a child.


I mean, I'd advocate euthanasia of pedos, but as a libertarian who does respect the rule of law, I have an ethical conflict with the over reach of authority before a crime has been committed

Not to defend the guy exactly, but how is that different than an adult psychiatrist who gets their sexual satisfaction watching regular porn of adult men/women and treating adults of the same/opposite sex as the case may be in a one on one environment in the office when you "know what's going thru his mind"?

I won't apply the term "pedophile" till someone proves the "child pornography" was of pre-pubescent children.

Can you prove that? Please tell me all the facts of this case you've studied so closely, even those that you don't think relevant to your conclusion. Such as, oh, the ages of his patients and those of the models whose photos he downloaded.

One problem I have with most of y'all Farkers is you don't know what "puberty" means, though presumably you're at least halfway through it yourselves. Of course this might not apply, but I'll take that 0.66% chance.


EvilEgg: come forward to get help before they hurt someone.


That would be best.

If homo and hetero are inborn then pedo must be too. Until we find out which SNPs to remove to fix the problem before it starts, or develop a test and make aborting pedophiliac fetuses mandatory, it's best to support their decision to keep their perversion to themselves. Which most pedophiles do or you'd see a lot more lynching.

Gotta love how gay is inborn and natural but pedophilia is learned and "evil".
 
2014-05-17 01:43:26 PM
The sad thing is that it's not the pedophiles' fault who they're attracted to, no more than it is for homosexuals' attraction to adults of the same sex. The problem, of course, is that as a society we have to protect children from abuse. Obviously, the rights of the children trump those of the pedophiles'.

Saying that pedophiles are "evil" isn't really correct. I don't know why I want to be a woman, Elton John doesn't know why he likes men, and pedophiles don't know why they like children.

Locking up pedophiles should be seen only as a societal defense mechanism to protect children, not retribution against the offender. Pedophiles don't see how they did anything wrong, so clearly sending them to prison isn't going to teach them a lesson. Pretty much, once a pedophile has been shown to not be able to learn to override their desires in a specialized environment, you might as well lock them up forever, but this probably should be something different than a prison setting.

I expect that I'll get flamed for this, since people tend to get very emotional.

Of course its wrong and disgusting to possess child pornography but a lifetime on probation and the sex offender list for having a few jpeg files is way over the top. Especially after doing 10 months in federal PMITA prison.

Myria: I expect that I'll get flamed for this, since people tend to get very emotional.


There's too much focus on punishment of the convicted individual as opposed to the protection of society from them.

People convicted of a crime either realize that change is in their best interest and act accordingly or they don't. Treating them cruelly makes them no less likely to re-offend once they have been released (and it doesn't appear to be very effective while they are incarcerated given the number of crimes prison inmates commit).

In this case, some steps have been taken to protect society in a reasonable manner with minimal punishment of the offender.  Still, I would not want to avail myself of his services knowing what I now know and I suspect many people share that sentiment, so he will no doubt have a struggle ahead of him. Him knowing these consequences while he was actively offending speak volumes about the strength of his urges (and the uselessness of deterrents in these cases), and I wish him luck and urge anyone reading this that has these urges to seek counselling before acting on them because if you don't, you're farked.

I would. Especially if the porn concerns really hard BDSM, which I hold to be morally akin to slavery. And some sexual acts derange the mind, or can only be done by those whose minds were deranged already. (This does not include toe-sucking, which is just silly.)
 
2014-05-18 02:19:40 PM
Well this has turned into an interesting discussion. People defending pedophiles while maintaining that a pedophile who bothered to get a doctorate in childhood behavior, of course would never use that knowledge to further his prurient interests...and if you insinuate he has, you are making an unfair accusation.
