Frequently Asked Questions: What are your thoughts about child sex dolls? Designed to look and feel just like young girls, these are completely legal, sold online to customers across the globe. Child sex doll-makers claim that they ‘stop pedophiles committing crimes’.
A. I honestly don’t know.
I agree about the distinction between the 2 largely different arcs someone mentioned here; that just because one has an attraction to children it doesn’t mean that they’ll end up being pedophiles and that they’re two bet different things
But they also ask the question of “How do you know?”
In my book, the answer is that I don’t. Also, that I don’t want to. The cost involved is way too high. We don’t want to know whether having sex with a doll MIGHT, or MIGHTN’T lead to paedophiliac behaviour.
But, the thing is that, it’s a question that is almost too difficult to answer objectively. All the studies I’ve heard of, about TV games, advocates parental discretion and a warning, when a particularly gory or violent game is played. Innumerable studies have also proven, sort of, that too much violence in games do have an effect on the player wherein they are desensitised by blood and sex of the virtual world and what not.
You see, I’ve not used these studies to make a point marked in stone. I’ve made references to it to support a hypothetical question.
Do we want to really know?
If it doesn’t, then, hallelujah!
Let’s say it does. Can we turn the clock back? Can we undo the normalising such a situation?
I, for one, don’t want to know, so I’d better be careful.
I understand that some people might really have that urge and desire to have sex with children, or having a rape fantasy, but I can’t really answer to it objectively.
I haven’t walked a mile in their shoes, you know!
