The One Blog About Pedophile Rings You Won’t Share

I have known what this crazy butterfly supposedly represents for about a decade.
Blogs about it, and other signals pedophiles supposedly use to identify themselves as pedophiles and express the sex of children they are most interested in, randomly go viral and hysteria ensues. Not much comes from the hysteria, unless one of these images is found someplace. In that case it sets off a police investigation and much sound and fury signifying nothing.
Understanding pedophilia and child sexual abuse is complicated. Learning to recognize a few symbols and keep your kids away from them is much simpler. Unfortunately, recognizing a few symbols isn’t going to protect anyone’s kids. And understanding why is important.
