It's clear that as a society we are massively failing a whole section and it's not helping anyone, really.
do you think sean was angry did didn't get a single mention for ^this.
fantasising about the kind of people you do fancy?

-oh hang on, I don't want to hurt anyone?
It's a pop culture reference, grandad.
That was clearly a wheeze from the depths of your old man lungs.

mostly because it really highlights how little we really know about pedophilia beyond the situations reported on in the media. Louis Theroux did a fairly interesting documentary on treatment facilities (iirc they were specifically for people who had previously committed offenses) in the US but it just seemed like many of people inhabiting them realistically had little hope of rehabilitating themselves back into society.
And I remember thinking it would be almost as inhumane just to shoot them since they have no real quality of life as it is and no hope of ever escaping their predicament. Not condoning shooting them or anything it just seemed such a complete abyss.
Something really needs to be done about it, it's a section of human rights we're lacking in, but I (and many others I suppose) just do not have the stomach to advocate or anything for them. It's weird.
