It disturbs me so much when a see antis insist pedophilia isn't a mental disorder... I'm a csa survivor and to see people say pedophiles are not sick?? I can't begin to start how wrong that is and it really really rubs me the wrong way. It feels like the antis are somehow saying that /normal/ people would be capable of abusing children for sexual things and I am horrified at that implication. I honestly hope pedophiles get the desperately needed treatment they need so fewer children are hurt
Exactly. Actually being attracted to children is very NOT normal?? And antis want to imply that it IS? Uh… No. Diagnosed pedophiles deserve to not be treated like criminals and child abusers right off the bat so they have a safe environment to seek help. Society needs to stop with the message that pedophiles just may as well abuse kids because that’s all they’ll ever be seen as. It’s fucked up, tbh.
