I love little girls. I love that I love them. I love the feelings they give me. Sometimes, I wish I was one. These are all positive feelings, yet people aim to make me feel bad for having them.
I work at a job that causes me to interact with children. Assisting a young girl is often one of the highlights of my day. I dream of a day when I don’t have to hide this fact. But I do have to hide it. Everyday, I have to pretend I am something that I am not.
People of other sexual minorities have days/events to celebrate their identities. Pedophiles are SHUNNED at LGBTQ “Pride” celebrations. While everyone else gets to openly celebrate their identity, pedophiles are made to feel shame. It does not matter if the pedophile in question is a child abuser — they are treated like one anyway.
April 25th was created as our own holiday. It is a way for pedophiles to remember that, hey, we aren’t alone — there are others like us. It’s a way to say “Hey, I’m not ashamed of who I am.” Pedophiles can’t do this at Pride events, so we have to have our own holiday.
Anti-pedophile hate groups (and they are hate groups) would have you believe that Alice Day is a day when child molesters celebrate by molesting a child. They cite cherry-picked forum entries as evidence. Maybe some dysfunctional individuals do indeed celebrate this way, and if that is the case, that’s terrible, but they would fall in the clear minority.
In my several years of speaking with pedophiles of varying stripes on the internet, one thing became pretty apparent to me. The pedophiles who engage in illegal activity DO NOT typically celebrate Alice Day. Celebrating Alice Day would put them at risk for detection, and serves them little purpose since they are content staying in the shadows. On the other hand, Alice Day is typically celebrated by law-abiding pedophiles. We can risk being found out because the consequences are theoretically less severe. An investigation might ruin our social status, but it won’t land us in jail.
I plan on celebrating Alice Day the way I usually do. This consists of wearing items of clothing to help strangers identify me as a pedophile; carefully observing others to see if I notice anyone doing the same; and wishing my friends a Happy Alice Day. Some of us will probably grab drinks. Nothing dangerous. Nothing illegal. Nothing harmful. Nothing disrespectful.
Anti-pedophile hate groups will stop at nothing to try and indiscriminately ruin the lives of pedophiles.They paint us as monsters, so it’s no surprise that they paint Alice Day as some horrible day of rape. They can’t stand the idea of a pedophile being happy, so they have attempted to take Alice Day away from pedophiles and turn it into a day we will fear. Well, it’s not going to work.
I am a pedophile. I did not choose to be this way, but it is a part of who I am, and I am tired of being made to feel ashamed of who I am. That’s why today is a special day for me. That’s why I will celebrate when others tell me not to.
Questions? Comments? I am going to bed soon, and will be out all day, so I may not respond quickly. Anyway…
Happy Alice Day!
