Attorney General's Office Warns Of 'Pedobear' (NM-cartoon bear used by pedophiles)
KOAT-TV News, Albuquerque ^ | November 28, 2011 | KOAT News Staff

Posted on 11/29/2011 3:27:19 PM PST by CedarDave

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The New Mexico Attorney General's Office cautioned parents against an Internet image they said is really a sexual menace called the "pedobear."

It started out as a joke, but authorities said the bear has spiraled into something much darker and more evil than they could've imagined.

Some images depict the pedobear snatching a little girl, dangling a carrot over two children and joking about not using condoms.

"This is the most disturbing one of all, it has the bear and it says, 'Too young to talk, too young to testify,'" said Lynn Southard with the AGO.

Authorities said the bear actually started off as an image mocking pedophiles but that pedophiles have embraced the bear and are using the image themselves.

Pedobear isn’t used by pedophiles, Pedobear is used by Anonymous and 4Chan forums to call out Pedos (usually mockingly).

Your link did work. Not sure I agree with the AG’s request for information on vehicles with the image though. Her public addressing this phenomenon is certainly justified though.

The AG representative said the image was first used to mock pedophiles but now has been embraced by them.

The images are just plain disgusting.

it started out a a warning on 4-Chan... guess it has a new meaning here in the USA

Pedobear is a cartoon mascot that became a well-known icon through its usage on 4chan to signal moderators and other users that illegal pornographic content had been posted. Due to the widespread nature of its application, Pedobear has been often misinterpreted as a symbol of pedophilia and lolita complex, especially in the news media and law enforcement agencies.

Recall somewhere seeing a modus operandi for pedophiles of using stuffed toys/animals to lure the children. For example, a car with the entire back seat shelf covered in beanie babies, while not being absolute, could be a real clue. This has figured in several investigations that turned out to be horrendous, and even those with a couple abusing children.

The MLP: Friendship is Magic TV show. A cartoon aimed at 5 year old girls that’s somehow attracted a cult following among hipsters. I guess they watch it while high or whatever.

YouTube has 18,900 results for "Pedobear." It appears that it is transitioning and now has a double meaning. For what its worth, I never heard the term before reading and posting this story.

I’ve actually watched the entire first season of MLP: FiM and I can safely say that it got a cult following because, I can’t believe I’m typing this, it’s actually a decent cartoon.

Seriously? Its a good cartoon and a diamond in the pile of you-know-what that exists for TV today. Its practically Duck Tales in execution.

Yes seriously. When a 40 something male posts reviews, fan fic and adulation (heavily laced with sarcasm) on youtube, to an audience of children, wanting to be their friends - yes. Seriously. There is something wrong with “Bronies”, “bro-hugs”, etc. This issue is what, and how bad.

The cartoon as noted above is age appropriate for about 5. Much past that, if you are not a cretin, something is off.

I am not the only one who smells something ‘off’ either.

The cartoon may be just fine. So is candy. So are vans.

Context is everything.

Must defend the new “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic”. I’ve watched it. It was a well written kid’s show, for at least the first season. In my college generation, most college kids that I knew watched children’s animated shows. It was the 90’s, so we’re talking “Ren and Stimpy”, Tiny Toons, Eek the Cat, Animaniacs, Muppet Babies and the animated Batman. It was a common bond for any kid on campus. We’d tape the shows, watch them together and sing songs.

Let’s stop picking on college kids for liking MLP. Get back on target here and focus on the bad guys.

A lot of perverts play along with the "mocking" to lighten the atmosphere around their crimes. Perverts are among the “mockers.” People truly against pedos don't find any humor in the child sexual abuse life style.

I think it is time for the death penalty for child abusers. Give ‘em something to laugh about.

Normal people don’t have the reaction to “mock” pedophiles. Normal people don’t think it is a funny enterprise. The “mockers” are most likely pedos.

“Get back on target here and focus on the bad guys.”

Right. That is the point.

Predators go where the prey gathers and is off guard. Perhaps this fad is simply and indicator of how infantile ‘adult’ discourse has become. But I will watch an adult ‘bronie’s’ appeals to children very, very closely, and with very deep suspicion.

“I think it is time for the death penalty for child abusers. Give ‘em something to laugh about.”

The United States Supreme Court - in its collective wisdom - just struck that possibility down not too long ago. Rape of child under age 10 or twelve (I have forgotten exactly which) was a capital crime until recently. The USSCT struck it down as unconstitutional a year or two ago.

Yeah, except that many “bronies” aren’t stoned college kids, but 40 year old sex offenders and other weirdos. Also some of the shows you mentioned like R&S weren’t necessarily aimed at children.

Mocking pedophiles and pedophilia??? I'm with SaraJohnson on this. Raping children is not a topic of humor.

the animated Batman

I was watching that (did so religiously and still think it's one of the best animated works ever) when the WTC was attacked in 1993 and knocked the station off the air.
