This is an extremely controversial topic and thus if the mods want to close this thread, they should certainly be able to do so. That said, though, @A7X's comment here ( https://historum.com/threads/trolling-sex-offenders.34306/page-2#post-828506 ) motivated me to ask this question:

Do you think that child sex dolls (including child sex robots) and *cartoon* (in other words, *animated*) child porn should be legal? In both of these cases, no actual children are going to be harmed. Thus, it can't be directly compared to things such as actual child porn and child rape because those things actually do harm actual children. In contrast, no one is harmed by the production of child sex dolls and *cartoon* child porn. Considering that pedophilia might literally be another unchangeable sexual orientation (see here: Is Pedophilia a Sexual Orientation? ), one would think that if there was some way--such as the child sex dolls and *cartoon* child porn--for people who are so inclined to satisfy their sexual desires without harming actual children, one would think that legalizing these things should warrant a close look. After all, the only other alternative for such people is castration (either chemical or physical), and while people who certainly can't restrain their appetites for actual children should certainly get castrated, people who have more self-control but who nevertheless have such unpleasant desires might want a harmless alternative to castration. I think that compelling someone to be castrated if they will have a harmless alternative available would be extremely inhumane, no?

While one could argue that the legalization of such dolls and porn would result in pedophiles becoming more hungry for children, I haven't heard of evidence that this is indeed true. In other words, at this point in time, it appears to merely be speculation. Of course, if one embraces this argument, shouldn't one also advocate banning all kinds of sex dolls and sex robots? I mean, if a male has a sex doll/sex robot of an adult and could have sex with it whenever he pleases, couldn't that cause him to feel entitled to sex and to demand sex from actual women whenever he pleases if he'll ever get tired of this sex doll/sex robot--indeed, up to the point of raping women if they will refuse to have sex with him whenever he pleases? Indeed, such logic could also be used to justify, say, banning violent video games due to the fact that these video games could desensitize people to actual violence and thus possibly make some people more inclined to actually engage in actual violence. Indeed, it would certainly be interesting to do a study on this. Of course, as I wrote above, if child sex dolls and *cartoon* child porn won't satisfy pedophiles' urgings, then there is always castration for them--an option that any decent person with such inclinations who cannot be satisfied by child sex dolls and by *cartoon* child porn should certainly accept.

Of course, my points here could also be applied to zoophilia--which might likewise be another sexual orientation: Zoophilia: Another Sexual Orientation? In other words, instead of having the only option for zoophilia-inclined people be castration, why not likewise develop animal sex dolls (including animal sex robots) and *cartoon* animal/zoophile porn? Seriously, I mean it. After all, sexual orientations might very well be fixed and unchangeable regardless of just how repulsive one might find some of them. Thus, shouldn't the best approach in regards to this be to reduce harm while also giving people with problematic sexual orientations a harm-free way to release and satisfy their sexual desires (as an alternative to castration)?

Any thoughts on all of this?

Futurist,

You are getting to the point where it looks like you are creating threads for the sake of creating them. Furthermore, this thread is NOT appropriate for a family forum like Historum.

THREAD CLOSED.
