The science on pedophilia suggests that it's more like a sexual orientation and that you can't decide to not be a pedophile any more than you can decide to not be gay. People don't want to hear this because they don't want to hear that being gay is anything at all like being a pedophile, and they accuse you of "calling gays pedophiles" or "trying to normalize pedophilia" which isn't even remotely true; if you want to see some real impotent rage, try telling someone about the actual science. Fetishes in general can't really be cured, and while pedophilia isn't actually technically a fetish, it's close. Actual psychiatric treatment for pedophilia consists of teaching them ways to resist their urges rather than trying to get rid of those urges (which is known not to work).
I learned a huge amount about the psychology of paedophilia from an episode of the podcast "The Mental Illness Happy Hour" which is sadly behind a paywall now or I'd link it, but it was an interview with the US's #1 anti-paedo cop. Basically there are two types of "paedophile" (defined as someone who sexually abuses children):

The first is the "classic paedophile". This is someone who has a romantic interest in children, and who believes that what they are doing is an act of love. They usually convince themselves that the children are able to reciprocate affection and are in love with them. This is I think the kind of offender that you are describing, and unfortunately I think this is the kind of offender that Thad is. Other cows in this category include people like Clawshrimpy, Sarah Nyberg or Michael Jackson, autistic fantasists who are so emotionally under-developed that they can only have romantic feelings for non-adults and are in denial about how much harm they cause. Whether these people are curable is doubtful, as you say it's almost like an orientation, but is often caught up in autism and other developmental disorders - address those and they may be more likely to express an interest in people their own age, but that is often somewhere between difficult and impossible depending on what the problem is.

The second is the "rapist". This person is not attracted to children per se, they are attracted to weakness. Unlike the first type, this kind of offender will often have more than just children on their CV. They are driven by insecurity and a desperate need not to be judged on their sexual performance. Therefore they will prey on children, the disabled, the elderly, nuns, animals, whoever they perceive as easily overpowered and unlikely to judge them. Examples of this kind of offender are people like Nick Bate, Yaniv, Jimmy Savile and most sex offender Incel types. Ironically, these types are more likely to respond to treatment, because their offending stems from psychological neuroses (often combined with personality disorders) that are more responsive to treatment. But because these people usually commit worse crimes and earlier on than the first type, they're usually beyond help and serving long prison sentences before anybody psychoanalyses them, making treatment pointless at that stage.

Okay but taking thing's on a case by case basis. Where does mad thad fit in?
In the interview i listened to he said he's bisexual and has had more sex in jail than on the outside. He mentioned he had a usb full of CP he said "he was merely collecting." I hope he does another interview after all he was treated fairly.

Honestly, I'd say Thad isn't a clinical pedophile per se, more of an idiot with a very high sex drive who wasn't thinking and didn't make the obvious connection between CP and real life child abuse. He probably just saw that CP as nothing more than live-action loli because he really is that dumb, and his autism likely didn't help matters either.

Most actual clinical pedos will actively seek out the real deal when it comes to CP and fictional stuff like loli and shota are not their thing. At most, a true dyed-in-the-wool pedophile may use loli as a supplement to actual CP or as a means to groom potential victims.

BTW, I'm not defending lolicon and I still find it creepy, but I'm just stating what actual forensic psychologists and criminologists have to say on the issue.


I re-watched the interview Thad did after he got out of prison and he mentioned some things that help lend credence to the possibility that Thad isn't a full-blown pedophile, but instead was a horny and sexually frustrated moron.

So, we all know about his bisexuality and he mentioned that he had a lot of sex in prison, but it was consensual and that he would play both the top and bottom roles depending on who he was with. If he was an actual prison bitch and he tried to top, he would get reprimanded horribly. Considering he was in a protective custody unit of a minimum security joint, I'm inclined to believe he just likes having sex and he really was just partying with his cellmates.

I also think he actually is bisexual and not a case of "jailhouse gay" considering he talks about finding men attractive even after he got out of prison and fantasizing about blowing the Uber driver. He also mentioned how he actually prefers older women in real life and his big thing now are MILF's and dudes his own age.

He also mentioned that a lot of his cellmates were other sex offenders, including actual pedophiles who would jerk off to mundane images of kids solely because they were kids and he talks about how that was disturbing even for a guy like him. Of all the things in that interview, it's that little anecdote that makes me think that Thad isn't a real pedo, he was just a dumb weeb who needed to get laid more and did some really stupid shit.

So yeah, he probably just needed to get laid before he got busted and he probably wouldn't have gotten so deep down the fetish rabbit hole that led to his conviction.

Once he's no longer on probation and the FBI isn't watching him like a hawk, then we'll know for sure if he is a real pedo or simply a dumbass.

why is it that there are people out there are very open about being a weeabo and shove their fandom down the throats of people who don't agree with them turn out to be pedophiles.

Consider the way so many women in Anime and Manga are portrayed. Super child-like. It's bound to attract paedos.

Even a lot of Asain porn has the women basically pretending to cry, or be in pain. Mimicking virginity or sexual naivety

Part 2 was pretty fast paced and more entertaining than Part 1.
I am expecting a lot for Part 3 when it comes out, and I hope Wildcat also makes that Interview public again in some way or another.

I kinda think Western porn is on one extreme where women act all slutty and whorey and Japanese porn is the opposite extreme where women try to act all naive and childlike. Whereas people irl in relationships are really somewhere between.

It's not just Japanese porn, the reluctant/submissive thing is considered attractive in Japanese culture in general and has been since before mass-pornography. There's a type of culturally-expected role-play in which the woman needs to be 'convinced' to have sex. I recall someone with a Japanese partner describing having sex with her and she began to say "no, no, no", so he stopped, then she asked him why he did that, as this was a normal thing for a Japanese woman to say during sex and basically meant "this is great, please continue".

Does the sex offenders registry require a mugshot every year or so? Or is there a chance Thad has gone ahead and done something stupid again
I think it does.

Not sure if it's a federal requirement or if it's a state-by-state basis, but I do know that most states require sex offenders get a new mugshot every so often, especially if they're on probation or parole.

If Thad did something really stupid, I think one of his orbiters would have found out about it.

Right now, the only way I think Thad would violate his probation is if he slipped up and watched porn. Not CP, but legal porn, since he can't watch it as part of his probation terms.

The impression I'm getting is Thad was collecting CP based on chan memes relating to CP. Thad is enough of an autist to join NoI in his ironic-but-not-ironic way. I remember this one chubby black SJW female declaring herself a Sikh depite the fact they are a ethno-religion that doesn't seek out converts or even does conversions as far as I'm aware.
