Oh my, did I say that!
Fine, but it applies to all things, there are no exceptions if one actually wants to understand even the most horrible of behaviours and/or crimes. One has to let go of any attached emotions so as to function properly. In my opinion, that is. I'd have compassion for those who might be caught up in paedophilia, didn't want such, and find themselves with no solution to their problems - other than the ones you might suggest. That is why I say we need more accurate information, and hopefully coming from research into such things. I obviously don't have compassion for all though - those who knowingly choose to harm others, and especially those least likely to be able to defend themselves against such (like children), for example.I wasn't the one insinuating you're ignorant about the topic. And good for you, that you can turn off your emotions about it? You're just not going to get me to have "compassion" for people for like that..
