Submitted by: fancylad 3 months ago in Lifestyle


Theroux takes an intense look into Coalinga State Hospital, a mental hospital for paedophiles. Unbelievable.

If these people are going to be released, it makes sense that we would try to correct their urges and actions before putting them in the community.

Draculya But is it possible to "correct their urges"? How would this be any different than "gender reassignment" (or whatever its called) that people claim can "correct" homosexuality? I think that Richanddead got it right earlier.

Interesting post, if society deems that people are unable to choose their own sexual orientation, then indeed these pedophiles should be treated as those who have a dangerous mental psychology, much like the those who have a mental illness. That being said, if the former is true then this place is redundant as a treatment facility and is more or less just a place to house pedophiles and the psychology treatment is just a waste of money. One way or another, their affliction doesn't hamper them from being able to tell right from wrong.

richanddead Ooo! Politically incorrect comment :-D
It's what I've been trying to say for years. It's only a matter of time until polygamy and other "deviations" are not only legalized but enshrined and protected like homosexuality is now. Hope fully NOT paedophilia, but once Pandora's Box is opened...

Consider this IAB: If the Age of Consent (AoC) is 14 in one place and 18 in another? Is one a crime while the other is legal? Why exactly? (not that I think 14 should be legal, that's Canada's Liberal Party who did that eh?)
If a "sex tourist" from an 18 y/o place visits a place with 14 AoC? Should he/she be arrested upon returning home? (presuming he/she had sex with a 14 y/o or viewed p0rn eh?) That's the law in Canada, iirc.

I think you are correct that in time other deviations will also become legal. In my opinion, my government should not be involved with marriage, I think it is a violation of the establishment Clause of the first amendment. I think it should be left up to the churches as to whom they accept as a valid marriage. The government I think should only grant people civil unions, but because it has tax implications I feel it should applicable to all people not just those in love. Roommates and other such pairings should be applicable as they also share bills and should not be preferenced out of tax advantages because their relationship is not romantic. I'm unfamiliar with all the laws of Canadia but I also agree that legalizing such practices as pedophilia would do irreparable harm to society. 

I will say this though, the law, in general, is mankinds attempt at bringing justice and decency to society. As with any manmade thing, humans impart their own flaws into it's being. Nothing made by humans will ever be truly perfect, as humans themselves, diverse in their beliefs, will never be truly perfect.

Seriously what is the correlation between child molesters and mustaches?  I couldn't  stomach watching the whole documentary but almost all those guys had mustaches.  I don't think I'm ever going to leave my children alone with somebody that only has upper lip hair.

starzokc New studies have shown it is the upper lip hair that is influencing the offender's behavior. Shave the offender cure the cravings. Anyone on IAB need a shave? (J/K)
