I was infuriated to read a suggestion by a Finnish charity.
Scandinavian experts are urging the use of child-like sex dolls in a bid to stop pedophiles from abusing real life children.
The Sexpo Foundation in Finland wants the disgusting dummies to be made available to pedophiles following a reported boom in imports in neighboring Norway.
. . .
The letter by Sexpo executive director Tommi Paalanen says: “Both Sexpo services and international studies have shown that the risk of a sexual offense against a child can be reduced by providing a pedophile with a channel for their desires.”
. . .
In January Sun Online revealed how almost two dozen people have now been arrested on suspicion of owning the “obscene” child sex dolls, with one man under investigation for allegedly importing the sick robots on a “commercial” basis.
The sex robots are also being sold on the dark web, where websites are claiming to offer dolls modelled on “real human children” aged as young as five.
There's more at the link.
As I observed just last month:
Pedophiles can't be cured. Time after time that's been tried, and failed miserably. They can only be prevented from committing their crimes, either by incarcerating them where they can't get at children, or by executing them. Harsh? Yes, it is harsh. Having seen too many children's innocence destroyed by pedophiles, my feelings towards the latter are very harsh indeed!
Allowing pedophiles to indulge their sickness using dolls instead of real children will do nothing to prevent them wanting to go further. I'm afraid, the older I get, and the more I learn about the damage pedophiles have done (and continue to do) to children everywhere, the more I become convinced that pedophilia is the only crime for which I think an automatic, mandatory death sentence is justified. Obviously, great care must be taken to ensure that convictions are solid, not based on flimsy evidence; but if the crime can be proved beyond doubt (particularly in cases where the molester is caught in flagrante delicto), I find it impossible to summon up any sympathy for them whatsoever.
There are those who argue that many pedophiles were themselves molested as children, and that therefore their criminal tendencies are not fully their own fault. I agree with that perspective . . . but my priority is to safeguard children who have not yet been victimized. I see no other way of doing that but to eradicate pedophiles whenever and wherever they are found.
Harsh? Yes. Realistic? I think so. Show me another alternative that will work, and I'll adopt it . . . but I'm afraid there isn't one.
