Anytime I debate the merits of child love with someone outside of the community, they always direct the conversation towards sex. They are hung up on the sexual aspect of the relationship. Most people outside the community don’t realize that we have genuine feelings for children. What I suggest is that we steer the conversation towards the emotional side. Educate the people about who we truly are. Humanize us. I’m sure the sexual aspect of your orientation doesn’t completely define you. What I’m saying is: don’t let it. When people think of pedophiles, they think “sex with children.” But we are so much more than “sex with children.” If that’s all we are, then I don’t want to be a part of this community.
