i rather be a pedophile than a homo




Consumption of child pornography is a more reliable indicator of pedophilia than molesting a child, child pornography may be used for a variety of purposes, ranging from private sexual gratification or trading with other collectors, to preparing children for sexual abuse as part of the child grooming process.

Pedophilic viewers of child pornography are often obsessive about collecting, organizing, categorizing, and labeling their child pornography collection according to age, gender, sex act and fantasy. According to FBI agent Ken Lanning, "collecting" pornography does not mean that they merely view pornography, but that they save it, and "it comes to define, fuel, and validate their most cherished sexual fantasies"

It reported that pedophilic collectors of child pornography are often involved in anonymous internet communities dedicated to extending their collections, through methods such as Bitcoin.

What a bad study with confirmation bias agenda. It says that they differ more from each other than they relate to each other. Then it tries to explain why it might differ so much (age, type of activity) and says more research needs to be done.

Do you know why alcoholism and internet addiction have similarities? Because they both are addictions. That's the only thing that they have common. The damage done by the substance of the addiction is enormously different: alcohol rots your body and your brains, where gaming addiction might make you ignore your health.

And why don't you share your own thoughts. I don't think you've even comprehended the message of the paper - but you think that the headline of the study is the result of the study, which it is not.

i agree with the part that the only thing they have in common is that they are both addictions.


my thoughts? its  that, obviously, any addiction is bad.
that online gaming, for me at least, it does interfere with real life planning as the article said  and have to maintain it to a very few hours a week.
at maximum 5 hours a week or else... (only play war2, cant even start to imagine those dudes playing mmos 12hrs a day but thats their prob not mine)


i might even replace this online gaming for a real life hobby.. dunno, scuba diving, archaelogical hiking, flying a drone with drugs over the border or something.

p.s.
and no I didnt start this thread by only reading the headline

smurfking out.

You have a fair assessment.

And sorry for getting provocative, I got hotheaded as usual. At least I'm getting slightly more aware of this flaw in my persona year after year - maybe some day I'll get this hotheadedness of mine under control.
