Relatively unbiased and is at least a step above propaganda.

I was impressed that the video had many more likes than dislikes.

But what we see is still largely a product of the clinical mindset, with the conversation about love arguably taking a back seat and seeming almost like "devil's advocate" in context of the whole picture. By the end, there was still an overwhelming sense of a dichotomy between "pedophiles who hurt kids" and "pedophiles who need to be prevented from hurting kids". As a viewer, I never really felt swayed to think outside of that.

The furthest I did get was when the man teared up at the thought of his loved one. I thought "so a pedophile's love for a child affects him very much emotionally", which is something that the average viewer may well not have understood beforehand (although sadly that's not saying much).

I was disappointed as usual that the exploration stopped THERE, and from then on the viewer's attention would immediately return to, then continue to fixate on, the fundamental idea of a sexual inclination (so-to-speak) which ought not to be acted on - end of discussion - and the idea that people can be good people in spite of having that inclination.

I don't want to be a good person in spite of myself... I just want to be good person.

I want the love that I have for a given child to not be regarded as sinister just because there may be a romantic element.

Especially if the child might feel the same way.

So many of our assumptions need questioning with regards to children and youths, and the males who are attracted to them, and the nature of how we approach even the most vaguely related topic - and so far beyond the extent to which this reporter seems willing - that I am not even compelled to hit the like button. Really. As a pedophile.

Maybe this is adequate food for thought to the average citizen unconcerned with such issues.

To me, it's still very inadequate - just not in all the worst ways.

As apparently counter-intuitive as it may seem, I believe this type of reporting doesn't actually help us much, if at all, when it comes to transforming pedophilia as a social security problem into, "Pedophilia: How the Modern-Day Witch-Hunt Persecuted Innocents in its Blind, Frantic Crusade to Save Kids from Sex".
