Hi, My ask is way too long to do here so I made an entire post on my blog (a few posts back, I tagged you in it), TW's for paedophilia and CSA. Your position on paedophilia is very confusing and misinformed, with you using paedophilia as a legal term and using terms like "real paedophilia". You need to clarify your position (although I think it is pretty clear that it's on a personal moral basis poorly hidden behind legal concerns). Please give a real, informed response.
This isn’t a particularly complicated subject (although the “MAP” in your username indicates why it is absolutely confounding to you), so I’ll explain this:
Real pedophilia is pedophilia involving real children. That is illegal. We can’t host that, period. That’s from US federal law itself. If it involves real children in any way, it is illegal. Punishment ranges from jail time, to being on the sex offender registry, to fines, to losing your business, and everything inbetween. It is not. Worth. It.
The reason why we flat out ban pedophiles on top of that is because of the risk. If we allow a MAP community to form and one of them happens to relapse and starts talking to a minor, or mentions a real child that they are attracted to, or describes events where they almost targeted a child, or any of the other thousands of ways things could go wrong, we as a site would be liable. That skirts dangerously close to breaking the law, if not outright breaching it.
If you are seriously seeking help for your condition, seek professional help. Forming online communities is only putting those online communities at risk. No, it is not the same as a person with BPD sending a death threat (although we will punish them if they do this).
If Tumblr allows you to have a MAP community, stay here. We’re not changing our policy on this. Tumblr “gets away with it” in part because of their overall lax policy on reporting, but they do ban pedophile blogs when they are reported, so they may not be the friendly space that you’ve assumed as much as they are a lazy enforcement space.
This is the final message that I’m making addressing this. We’re not the site for you.
