There are several cases of different people who fantasize and regard children as sexual objects. While some of them are able to fight the urge and control by seeking psychological and behavioral treatment, others simply cannot help it. When someone has upgraded his imagination and carried out his desire of sexually molesting or abusing children, he is now called a sexual predator.
The behavior of harming children is beyond normal. It is not accepted by the norms of society and the people who do it are condemned by every nation. Nonetheless, child sexual predators think otherwise. They believe that such type of sexual behavior and mentality is normal and they can abuse children whenever they want to.
For them, it is more about expressing control and power. Many offenders were victims themselves as children. This can indeed help to form the twisted mindset that adults and children can have sexual relations.
Typical sexual predators believe that through molestation and abuse, they are actually expressing love to the victim. This distorted belief is primarily caused by their lack of reason. The way they think has been compromised by their need for sexual outlet. The most dangerous part of their behavior is when their potential victims don’t cooperate in the fantasy. They would think that by being with children and abusing them, it’s like they are creating a mutual and loving relationship. But of course, everything is just pure fear and intimidation. As soon as the victim fights back and opposes, harm in the form of sexual and physical abuse will certainly take place.
Now most of the time, sexual predators don’t admit that something’s wrong with them. They strongly believe that they’re normal. These people need understanding but at the same time, they must also be reminded that sexually abusing children is absolutely one of the worst crimes a man can commit.
