32. We will have to agree to disagree about the pictures
and whether or not having them should be a crime. I also disagree with the statement that pediphiles that look at these pictures seldom touch a child inappropriately. You might be surprised how many people sexually abuse children and get by with it. How many people that think it is quite alright for them to do so. I worked with children who had been sexually abused from birth, and many of these children became abusers themself. Sex=power to these children, and they use it to have power over children smaller than they are. These children are put in places where they can get treatment but there is no way to know if they will stop the cycle. The adult who abused them in the first place often went unpunished because the courts/juries would not take a child's word for it, thinking a young child would not be responsible enough to testify. That adult would continue to abuse other children.

Oh and guess what, adults who abuse children both use porn in the abuse and take their own photos to share with other pediphiles. And how does it gain a poster to share his child porn, it gives him a feeling that he is not alone and if he is not alone then what he is doing cannot be that bad, and it encourages him to continue because he is bringing enjoyment not only to himself but to others. There are things to gain from actions besides just financial. I used the term he, but there are women that take part in this too. I have worked with children that have been abused by their fathers and/or mothers. I'm sorry, but I don't think you should be punished for a crime you have not commited but for someone who takes, trades, or downloads child porn photos is not someone that I will defend. I could write you a book on what I have seen, but not here or now. This is all I'm going to say on this.
