And that's how you know whoever decided so has no intention to 'protect children'.
The psychology behind it goes like this:>pedo likes cp>pedo gets told cp is illegal and punishable by law>pedo develops a chaotic distaste towards cp to protect himself from it's legal consequences, not because it's wrong>pedo punishes others for things he would otherwise enjoy but not for things he wouldn't even if their moral implications are exactly the same or even worse
Eventually though, the people who play themselves to the mental trap will fail. It's the reason why so many priests, childcare workers and people dealing with related laws are so often later found to abuse children. They seek to extinguish their desires rather than deal with them.>>1987431
In a similar fashion, people who claim to only ever be disgusted by children are in a similar situation. No normal person needs to convince themselves to hate children that way. Normal folk are in the middle ground.
