Although I believe that this topic will be locked and/or deleted as soon as five minutes after I post this, I still want it out.
I am a minor, sixteen years of age, seventeen in mid-September. The pictures found by other users on Soulseek were of teenagers of my age, or one or two years above or below me. If any content found was of younger ages, then I apologize. As I had originally stated on Soulseek, the content in the folder was an experiment. I was attempting to find a free alternative to what I normally either pay for, or collect from girlfriends/boyfriends of myself.
The experiment failed, the content found was revolting in its nature. Sadly, a unwanted side-effect was that a large group of people happened to quickly jump to the conclusion that I was a paedophile, and as such, was subject to abject humilation and rejection by my peers.
What follows is the definition of a paedophile:
A person which is sexually attracted predominantly by preadolescent children.
I am not. I find the action of "getting one's self off" to pictures of preadolescent children revolting, although in no way will I attempt to pass my judgements unto others.
It is not WRONG to be sexually attracted to people your own age. It is in fact, far more normal than to be attracted to people twenty years older than yourself, which is why I find traditional adult media to be less of an attraction for myself.
I apologize if by posting this, I have in any way motivated somebody to "tar and feather" my person. Although I think that is the wrong belief for you to hold, I respect it.
I only wanted to clear the air. I am not, by definition, a paedophile, all I am is somebody who finds people the same age as I am to be sexually attractive.
Thank you for giving me the proverbial "soap box" for me to stand on. I now humbly step off, and await the locking of this post.
