Pedophiles’ Brains Wired Differently
Yahoo! News / The Daily Beast ^ | May 23, 2014 | Charlotte Lytton

Posted on 05/23/2014 9:40:25 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Pedophiles’ brains are “abnormally tuned” to find young children attractive, according to a new study published this week. The research, led by Jorge Ponseti at Germany’s University of Kiel, means that it may be possible to diagnose pedophiles in the future before they are able to offend.

The findings, published in scientific journal Biology Letters, discovered that pedophiles have the same neurological reaction to images of those they find attractive as those of people with ordinary sexual predilections, but that all the relevant cerebral areas become engaged when they see children, as opposed to fellow adults. The occipital areas, prefrontal cortex, putamen, and nucleus caudatus become engaged whenever a person finds another attractive, but the subject of this desire is inverted for pedophiles....

Pedophiles’ brains need to be wired 220v for about 2-3 minutes.

So what?

You can’t convict the pedophile until they have offended.

You can’t hospitalize them against their will unless they have been adjudicated as being a threat to themselves or others. Very few judges could be convinced that they diagnosed pedophile is a threat to others unless the pedophile himself admitted that he could not restrain himself in the presence of children.

So all of this research is useless unless the laws are changed and if the laws are changed to deal with this new science it would be struck down as unconstitutional at its first court hearing.

2DV,
“Pedophiles” is a hot button, like “the children” and “wife beater”, “ baby killer”, “racist”... When connected to concepts like “the common good” “Reperation” and “civil commitment”, the slippery slope drops off to the ibis.

The thing that’s wrong with these studies is that in a few years, normal people will be forced to accept pedos just like they had to gays. School children will be taught that pedos are okay and will be taught in text books how to submit to them.

Sounds like they are born that way just like gays and transsexuals are.

Who are we to question their identity?

So this should mean that homosexuals are wired differently, too. They are abnormal in either case.

it’s how they use terms.

differently == acceptable, must be tolerated as normal, just different, no stigma

abnormal == unacceptable, not tolerated as normal, stigma

they pick their words to frame ideas on purpose.

rehabilitative care and necessary precautions could be taken

Contradicting themselves. The author admits they are hard wired, meaning they can't be "rehabilitated". Yet suggests doing that.

You incarcerate forever, or you execute them. To protect children, those are the only options.

No, what it means is that, like gays, since they’re born that way they will be declared “normal “ by the American psychological association, there will be anti discrimination laws passed, pride parades held, and marriage ceremonies between 50 ye old man and 9 year old kids.

That a pedophile gets excited by children does not even remotely demonstrate they were born that way.

People with Downs are born their way. What about all the others with handicaps or deformities.

With them, liberals want to do one of two things. Either heal or prevent their deformity, or abort them before hand.

What do you think would happen if the very same were proposed for gays?

Behaviors shape the brain...The brain of musicians is different than that of non-musicians. Behaviors are habituated and the brain is shaped according to the areas of the brain being used.

Watching TV doesn’t integrate both sides of the brain like reading. Children who are sexualized are using areas of the brain which would not be incited under normal sexual identity formation which needs innocence. It changes the shape of the brain when adults incite sexual interest when their body is designed to sublimate the sexual instinct (latency).

It warps how children look at opposite sex and self and parents if Sex Ed is done in mixed groups and prior to puberty. Morality is stripped from sex with Sex Ed which requires modesty, privacy and intimacy to be moral. Modesty is a virtue and it is destroyed by Sex Ed in schools (Lukacs, Cultural Marxist, invented Sex Ed to destroy the normal sexual identity formation of children which destroys Virtue.) Children naturally like the same sex more during latency since they have to understand their own sex before they are mature enough to appreciate “the Other”. True diversity demands maturity...so it really warps children talking about “sexual” love because they will think they are all homosexuals because they will naturally like the same-—(herd instinct).

Homosexuals and pedophiles are warped during their normal sexual identity formation during childhood. Afghani boys in harems will grow up with a wired brain different from those boys who are not molested. It is why childhood trauma and child abuse is so destructive to children. Embedded emotions connected to acts in childhood are buried and irrational and are difficult to erase.

This is why adults use to kill anyone who molested or hurt their small children—it warps their perceptions of Reality for life and connects irrational emotions to events and people, which are almost impossible to reshape.

That is why people should never give up their vulnerable children to strangers or schools at younger than 7 years, the age of Reason-—unless the adults can be trusted totally. Embedded emotions are irrational under the age of seven.

What scares me is if they figure out that conservitive and liberal brains are wired differently then when children are young they test them for “pedophile brains” when they are actually testing for conservative or libs and if a conservative brain is detected they tell the well meaning parent they can “adjust and fix johnny’s brain” so he is no longer a potential pedo....

It could be used to exterminate conservatively wired brains using this guise.

As for actual pedos... lead therapy works best if they acy on their impulses.

I believe it. I also believe homosexuals are wired differently. However, I also believe that if you start to examine that the gay mafia will go after you, because it implies homosexuality is a disorder.

If you ever have any direct experience with real-world gays, you won't have any doubt at all that homosexuality is a mental disorder. I have a younger Brother who went gay in the navy and has been a gay fanatic to the point that none of the rest of our family will have anything to do with him. His entire life is nothing but multiple sexual "hookups", night spots, political issues, gay diseases, "gay pride parades" sexual innuendo, and trying to cozy up to our children. It's a whole nasty culture and it's ugly as hell.

Men are crazy enough about their sexuality - men involved with men is the problem squared.

The public has bought the image of the poor, innocent put-upon gays but the truth is horrific up close.

Alchoholics are also wired differently.

We should try it.

Homosexuals don’t think the same way as normal people. The fascists even pass laws preventing homosexual therapies to even be tried. Out of fear they may work of course.

“Born that way” - my first thought, too.

There have been reports that APA (the group that “normalized” homosexuality) are moving closer to “normalizing” pedophilia. NAMBLA is behind this push and, if it occurs, may be the final nail in the coffin.

No not “Born this way”.

Everyone’s brains restructure themselves according to experience. Pedophiles are probably victims of serious child abuse themselves, so they’re brains structured differently.

This seems more like a pretext for arrest under pre-crime.
