I'm joining various legal message boards in the hopes somebody can help me. If this is in the wrong section my apologies to the staff.
*sighs* I haven't done anything illegal so I hope I won't get banned.
I'm 19 and I live in New Jersey. I'm a pedophile. Regardless of my views on the subject, I don't act. It's not that it's just a "matter of time" before I rape. Many pedophiles never act in their life and that statement is supported by sex researchers Ralph Underwager and Holida Wakefield in Special Problems with Sexual Abuse Cases:
"Although the terms are often used interchangeably, a distinction must be made between _sex offender against a minor_ and _pedophile_. The former refers to a criminal sexual behavior and the latter to an anomalous sexual preference. Many pedophiles never act on their impulses. At the same time, not all sex offenders against a minor are pedophiles."
For the last 2 years or so I've been active on pro pedophile message boards(nothing illegal, just discussion). I've needed emotional support because the attractions I have more often than not make me depressed. Early this morning I was talking with a member of a message board I'm at through IM who claimed he was also a pedophile, he hacked into my computer and now all my personal information is on a site run by the same people that do Perverted Justice. My name, IP address, a picture, my location, EVERYTHING. Is this harassment? Is this legal? Is there any way that I can get my personal info removed? I fear for my life that some vigilante that lives near me will see my page and break into my house and bring harm to me. What can I do?
