I had a thought. So I’ve been doing advocacy for child sexual abuse prevention since roughly April 2019, a little over 2 years. During that time period I’ve met a decent number of ““self-identified pedophiles”. And I had this very interesting revelation. The pedophiles that I have met have been some of the most empathetic, kind, caring individuals that I’ve ever met. On other other hand, I’ve also met plenty of Trump supporters, and they have been some of the most hateful, unempathetic brainless people that don’t care about any other human beings. Basically, the revelation I had was: pedophiles are better than trump supporters.

Now, a theory: my theory is the people that have been through the worst shit and has experienced the worst shit are some of the kindest people because that kindness is how they wished they’d been treated by others.
