I don't think there's a genetic component to pedophilia.
Perhaps pedophilia is not genetic. Perhaps becoming a serial killer is not genetic. Perhaps being homosexual is
genetic. Okay. Let's find a common ground.Forget
Let's make a list of all the twenty-year-olds existing in the world today. Of all the "types" of twenty-year-olds, these three "types" are listed in our collective, perceived order of abundance(most abundant listed first).
1. Homosexual twenty-year-olds
2. Pedophile twenty-year-olds
Okay. Let's say that the causes of these particular situations aren't unanimously genetic. But
, no matter what the cause, these three "types" of individuals exist(ultimately of some
cause, no matter what).I
say, my previously stated "average perceived abhorrence" still stands.
Do you disagree?
I'm also not convinced that allowing people to indulge such fantasies in a virtual world will necessarily prevent escalation into real world acts.
When I posted my OP, I assumed that humans of the future were "permanently imprisoning" these pedophiles
. The pedophiles could do no harm to society, but they were "free" to be extremely happy, without hurting actual children.
After reading your post, I realized, "Duh! How is everyone reading this expected to be assumed to begin at my unclarified assumption?"
Thank you for exposing my flaw. I want this to be understood, even if am initially unable to maximizingly export my thoughts to others.
