Is it creepy or weird that I am intrigued in watching documentaries about pedophiles?

I DO NOT condone the behavior of pedophiles. I think they are sick and twisted individules who need help.
But is it weird i am intriguing in watching documentaries on them and observing their stories? I find it very interesting. Is it bad?

  • Creepy or weird? Not at all! You are transcending your mind into the thought process of someone else very different from you. That is true worldliness and love of true education and learning.

    It would be closed minded to be one those people who is somehow AFRAID to try to understand others differently than you.

  • I say no as you may be trying to understand them, and maybe working through some of your own discovery.

    But be careful because I noticed in myself when I'd watch too much of something I'd start to have different thoughts and feelings and they weren't good. It may be how you perceive what you are seeing. For example... so many "ministers" who crack against gay people... end up going gay... there is something psychological in how we handle these thigns. So step back and ask yourself why you are doing this, don't judge them or you will be judged kinda thought...
    They are sick of course!

  • It's just documentary for educational purposes, doesn't mean you are supporting pedophilia

  • If there was no interest in their stories, there would be no documentaries. So I think it is normal.
    What I think is tragic is that people can not even talk about this issue without the all caps caveat to declare "I do not support them."

  • It's a scary psychology they have that intrigues you. It;s like watching a car crash. I get bored of it after a while but people have to realize the world is a dangerous place and not be so sheltered and contemptuous of the world.

  • It is a subject that intrigues you. I am facinated by the Third Reich, but that does not mean I agree with what they did nor that I would want to do something similar.

  • I love game of thrones and I am not a violent person. My best friend adores documentaries, she told me about one she watched on hitler and that she loved it. She is the most compassionate person I have ever met.

  • That's not weird, if anything it makes you more aware and informed, in which you see/acknowledge there are bad people in this world. There are people who take interest and study of or about these sorts of individuals (such as behavioral health) to better understand or distinguish the nature of pedophiles, psychopaths, etc. That, in a sense, is similar to your interest in those sorts of shows.
