People congratulated him because it's a tough thing to live with and being able to admit it to others (since he obviously did to himself a while ago) is a step toward getting through it, unlike the people that repress it for years and act on it.
He compared pedophilia to homosexuality because people need to accept that pedophiles (as in people sexually attracted to children, not the ones who rape them since that's not always the same thing) don't chose to be sexually attracted to children just as homosexuals don't chose to be attracted to the same sex (and heterosexuals don't chose to be attracted to the opposite sex for that matter). As long as someone doesn't act on those urges and doesn't look at real child porn they haven't done anything wrong.
And you're an ignorant little twit lacking the ability to distinguish between an uncontrollable urge and an action, lacking the ability to make moral judgments based on logic, instead using your own stubborn prejudgments even when coherent, logical, and factual explanations are provided to disprove them.
Why exactly? He has an attraction he didn't chose to have, can you really blame him for something he didn't chose? He claims he's never touched a child and I see no more reason not to believe him than for me to believe that you've never touched a child, especially considering most people who molest children aren't even sexually attracted to them.
Not exactly because I know the difference between a pedophile and child molester. I can admit to having my share of arguments when he first came to Complaints but those were all about certain things he was posting at the time, not about his attraction.
Besides just being a regular doesn't earn my respect, there have been plenty of people that have been considered regulars that I haven't liked. My respect for him comes from conversations we've had, not simply his being considered a regular.
Really? That's not a factor at all? So Teruchan draws under-aged looking girls, Bleedman draws little girls with their panties showing, and those two are the source of endless mirth and derision. This guy draws little girls in revealing outfits and openly admits to being a pedophile and everyone goes "aww he sho shweet". The only difference I see between them is this guy posts in Complaints occasionally. That he even used Complaints to make personal confessions to a bunch of strangers would be considered inappropriate and mock-worthy if he was anything but a "regular".
I wouldn't care what Bleedman or Teruchan drew if they kept it off dA and on sites that allowed such things. lordogreus has a few iffy things in his gallery but he hasn't posted anything like that since I argued with him about it.
I don't have anything against the existence of loli or shota as long as it stays on sites that allow it. It can be used as a tool to avoid the temptation to look at real child porn or hurt a real child (I really can't believe it encourages it seeing as it seems to dull the need).
So I can't speak for anyone else but his being a regular isn't why I treat him the way I do, it takes a lot more to earn my respect than just posting in Complaints a lot.
Yeah but he hasn't exactly deleted them either. What difference is there between this and this? Pretty recently is also a drawing of Dakota Fanning who did a rape scene in a recent film.
So he's such an innocent pedophile no one can say anything bad about but you still try to censor him?
Well I thought it was ridiculous months ago as I think it is now, here we have some drama queen confessing some disturbing thing and a group of facilitating and enabling BFFs running to his rescue and bombarding every comment that isn't "you're such a brave soul!" with whine.
the reason its not the same as "admitting to being homosexual" is because it involves seriously messing up an innocent person's life, ie; someone who is not old enough/experienced enough/informed enough to fully understand what is going on.
I relate to homosexuals in that it is not uncommon for them to feel rejected, frustrated, depressed, and angry because of something they did not choose, and I relate to the fact that they may ofttimes have difficulty coming out.
It only does that if the pedophile actually does something to a child. The sexual attraction doesn't mean that they're going to rape and it's like homosexuality in that it's not something someone choses, not in that it should be acceptable for the person to act on it.
You don't have to have sex with children to be a pedophile, you have to be sexually attracted to children to be a pedophile. A lot of people that rape kids aren't even pedophiles because in order to be a pedophile you have to be sexually attracted to children.
He looks at lollicon because he knows real child porn hurts real children.
She also said something elsewhere to him and I believe in !kombat-unit's counter thread about sexual discussion which didn't make any sense seeing as both threads lack it, especially compared to some threads =Mixedpie, =k-a-t-w-a-l-k, and myself have put out since that have been considered just fine and not lock worthy.
I have not known you very well, so I wouldn't say much.
Pedophiles, mmmm..... I think I'm one. But to only those living in pictures, the little 2D ones. If you're like that too in a sense, I frankly don't give a flyin fuck whether you're a pedo or not. Unless of couse, you're a big asshat.
Telling dA you're a pedo gives me this mental imagery of a single homo shouting, "I'M PROUD OF BEING GAY, HOW'D YOU LIKE THAT? JACKASS!" when surrounded by many homophobes.
Well, as long as you don't try to do any kiddies, I'm fine with who and what you are. I see you loads when I lurk around here, and I think you're a nice guy. Don't worry 'bout stuff like that.
