    It depends. Some will engage in sexual interactions with prepubescent children, and others won't. I merely propose discriminating between those that do and those that don't.

    Well, comrade...there's a difference between having a gut instinct to do something and seriously and analytically developing public policy. That's why appeals to emotion fail.

    And that's the whole point!

    Pedos must be killed, whether by justice system, relatives of victims, a mob -- irrelevant! Those who gratify their perversions by torturing and raping children must be dead.

    And that's why your politically correct libertarian ponderings on a matter are hollow.

    While you might have a right to speak your mind to do so without it having happened to you gives any arguement that you might put foward irrelevant.

    As for the part in bold....You can never understand it. Don't even try to say that you do. It is one thing to say that you understand and quite another to actually understand because it did happen to you. It's like me claiming that I understand what it's like to jump out of an airplane just by watching it. While I might understand the basics I will never truely understand it until I experiance it myself.

    I can't. This is important.

    What about those who gratify their perversions and blood lust through murder and mob justice?

    It's dumb to claim I can't understand a situation without personally experiencing it. That's bull****. The human brain is capable of understanding and comprehending a large variety of situations.

    We can lose our job and find another one, we can lose our house and buy another one, we can lose a loved pet and console ourselves by getting another pet... But once you lost a child, you never recover!

    I'm an anarchist; nothing PC there! Moreover, I suspect that many of the self-described "libertarians" on this board would defent "parents' rights" as an element of their privateer ideology, though I'm glad to see that Ikari hasn't.

    There are a substantial number of situations that you have never and will never experience, including many related to various political issues on this board, but that does not eliminate your ability to offer sound and cogent argument on those topics thanks to your conceptual awareness and knowledge of the topics alone. Have you ever had an abortion? Have you ever served in Congress? Have you ever authored an economic spreadsheet? No? If you still consider yourself capable of commenting on those topics, don't be inconsistent and advance the argumentum ad hominem elsewhere.
