I don’t know if anyone else experiences this but I frequently have. I’m allowed to have a discussion on politics and how education funds should be spent and most people may or may not agree with me but will respect my opinion. However when it comes to what pedophiles do and what should happen to them I’m personally attacked and their is absolutely no room for discussion.
An example would be me on another forum. There was this story of I’m sure you’ll remember the pedophile in Florida who was beaten by the father of the boy he was molesting. I said that he shouldn’t have done that but expressed his anger verbally towards the man, called the police and they would have dealt with it.
I also said that the man should receive serious rehabilitation (if any exists) if he is to be released back into society or be executed swiftly instead of wasting taxpayers money. The comments I got were the worst I’ve ever received on a forum or in my life. I was berated and threatened (told ‘If I ever find you, you will regret saying those words’.)
People were saying he should be beaten up and raped in prison. I asked them what good did that do. And they didn’t answer. They just continued rambling on.
This was a very well known forum and one with intelligent discussion. I couldn’t believe all the threats I was receiving. But this is not just limited to this, I’ve also experienced this when talking about sexual assault and suicide, in real life.
Why do you think this happens and have you ever experienced this?
