I'm not oldman!....Or am I?
Anyway, I was thinking that from a psycological point of view, within a average, modern western family you have certain societal expectations, one being that if you are married (as the average 'family' would be), then you do not engage with sexual activity with anyone other than to whom you are married to, plus the other expectation of never having sexual interacton with children as this is often frowned upon, plus the will to raise the child as best as you can into a decent person which subconsciously ingrains the role of 'parent'.
All these factors are taken in subconsciously and prevents any 'will' being directed towards the child.
However, there are stories of parents and children being seperated for years due to some court ruling where the child is put into foster care or adopted, only to meet again when the law no longer prevents the child contacting their parents, they meet up and then get it on...
Why is this? I think it could possibly be because they don't see eachother as relatives, they know they are technically, they have the paper work to prove it.
But they don't subconsciously see it that way becuase they have not lived or grown together as parent and child, as far as they are concerned they are just two conscenting adults who happen to have the same last name.
I know this does not directly go hand in hand with pedophilia, but it's just giving an example of point of view VS psycological disorder.
Recently I read that the recently concieved "children loving community" (pedophiles) are trying to justify their "sexuality" to be on par with that of the GLBT community (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender community), meaning that they wish to be acknowleged to being "born like it" just as the GLBT community has been, rather than having a "mental disorder".
This has caused quite the uproar in both the straight and GLBT communities since unlike straight and GLBT relationships who's participants are both 'adult' and 'conscenting' people who are mature enough to make their own decisions (etc), one of the parties involved is a young child who is too young to understand what's truly going on.
The Straight and GLBT communities also fear that should the pedophiles be acknowledged as such, then this may pave the way for the law to be changed in their favour, meaning our children could be in a 'LEGAL' relationship with a pedophile.
Now thaankfully it seems that no such acknowledgment will be given in the foreseeable future, but the issue did raise some questions about the morales on which the refusal was based upon, for example, suppose that the pedophiles were right in that they were born like they were and didn't have any kind of mental condition.
Could it then be that we could be committing crimes against them? That we are persecuting them for being themselves just as society did the GLBT communtity?
Regardless of the case, it doesn't change the fact that there are innoent children involved, so worries of that.
And about the power and control issue, does this count as a mental condition?
I have heard cases of guys who claim to be 100% straight commit rape crimes against other men because they were openly gay, this type of thing was thought to be an issue of power and control, not a sexual issue, just a sadistic mans of expessing their resentment for somthing outside their understanding.
