Re: Article on pedophilia in USA Today

My thoughts on this article: The complicated research behind pedophilia – USA Today

There’s a lot of problematic rhetoric in the article from both Dr Cantor, and Anna Salter. I wish other, less controversial, MAP researchers would talk to the media instead of Cantor. He continues to perpetuate outdated stereotypes.

I hate how the article frames it as “most pedophiles abuse children, but some don’t.” I’d say the ones who abuse are likely in the minority. I hate how this is perpetuating myths about the creepy pedo with no impulse control.
