Ted Talk pedophilia fact or fiction?

As usual dumb ass people sharing shit they don’t bother to research and just read edited headlines and modified video clips.

The way social media is framing it in their headlines it is fiction because at no point do the speakers suggest society should accept it. Yes I have watched the video in full.

In the TEDx talk, a speaker described pedophilia as a condition some people are born with, and suggested that if we recognize it as such…., (she does not suggest at any point we “society” should accept it) …. we can do more to prevent those people from acting on their instincts and harming children. This field of science is developing, and the definition of the condition is just one of many points that are in debate across the global scientific community (and even in standard reference works).

While there is much debate around this field, scholars in the field are united in their wish to keep children from coming to harm — as the speaker makes clear in her own talk, saying “Let me be very clear here. Abusing children is wrong without any doubt.” – speaker

To stop anything you need to study and understand it. You can not just dismiss it by throwing it in a cell. If you understand why they think or act the way they do, you can stop it before it happens saving children from ever experiencing the trauma in the first place.

Will you ever truly eliminate anything with 8 billion humans running around the planet? No but you can reduce or stop a lot of it by understanding why and ho the first place. Proactive science and proper studying means many children will never have to endure the horror.
