Help me coin another new word: Someone who likes children but doesn’t want to sound like a pervert. Any ideas?
Wouldn’t be easier just to call them “people” and try to coin a word for people who don’t like children?
Not sure why this is in Cafe Society by the way…
Are we trying to “Catch a Predator” or something?
The trick is to make sure you’re not to specific.
“I like children” -OK.
“I like 8 year olds” -Not OK.
Moving from Cafe Society to IMHO.
Depends on just how much you do like them.
Pedophile Of the Nonmolesting Kind. short PONK .this is the new word.
Good, but that could also refer to a pedophile who is attracted to children but is in control of his impulses and doesn’t molest, or just hasn’t yet.
It already applies to places, just adapt it to people, as well.
… sounds like a Demitri Martin routine, and this …
… is an early frontrunner for thread winner!
Someone who doesn’t want to sound like a pervert, but he is? Someone who doesn’t want to sound like a pervert, but may or may not be? Or someone who doesn’t want to sound like a pervert, and really isn’t one?
