Have we got an irrational fear of pedophiles?
I’m not condoning pedophilia, only asking do we? I’m mainly focusing on how parents restricted what their children can do because of pedophiles.
Situations such as not letting their child sit on Santa’s lap just encase he’s a pedophile, or letting parents film their school concert. We make many decisions based on the probability of it will happen, for example, flying in a plane or getting in a fight with a bigger person.
Would you allow your child to be a passenger in a vehicle? When the chances of them dying are highly prevalent compared to being sexually abused.
Of course the other side is we shouldn’t be making it easier for any pedophiles that are out there and our kids are so special to us that we wouldn’t want to put them in any danger.
I don’t know so I’d like to hear what you have to say.
