I’ve said this so many times. It is NOT NORMAL for men to be working in day care centers PERIOD! I could care less HOW MANY background checks you do, men are not equipped to be nurturing. You can call me sexist as I am a man myself but you’ve increased you chances of molestation happening x10 times when single men are hired to take care of children. I’m sorry but there’s something suspicious when a guy claims “I just LOVE children!” and gets himself in position to be around children for pedophile behavior. Didn’t the Jerry Sandusky scandal teach this administration anything? Red flags should come up and he should never be left alone with children!

The parents of the children molested should sue the pants off of this facility for being fully negligent in letting this scumbag around children. They are 100% responsible for this pervert’s actions. I hope prison finds a way for this guy to get REAL justice!

Interesting theory. You could be right… I wouldn’t know of course, since I’ve had the same fetishes and desires as Kyle Loughlin.

Thank god I have a conscience and self-control though. Taking diapers is, even to me, pretty damn extreme… But thieving underwear should hardly be a crime. Touching the kids is something else entirely, and as much as I’d love to sate my desires by doing so, I never would. I know the repercussions that follow and how the kids would feel. I blame those expected reactions on the way parents foolishly teach their kids about “shame” and to be “embarrassed” by their bodies, but I’ve learned to live with it. You just have to remember that you’re better than that disgusting demon in your head, and you’ll be able to get by.

Kyle infiltrated a day care with these fetishes, which is definitely disgraceful. That was just stupid of him, since it’ll only reinforce his desires until he wouldn’t be able to help himself. The best way to avoid this enacting this behavior is to find ways to quiet the noise in your head. It’s too late for Kyle, he’s fallen hard… because he didn’t have the self-control necessary for living with this kind of mental disease.

People ignore this fact, but pedophilia and child molestation are two different things. Pedophilia isn’t a problem as long as you don’t act on any sexual feelings, and it could even be subdued to a simple love for children. Just the other day, my teacher brought her 7 or 8 year old son to school and I got along great with him. Even if we were alone, I wouldn’t have done anything to him and the more time I spent with him, the less I wanted to do anything selfish or inappropriate to him. That’s the honest-to-god truth. Pedophiles are made out to be these monstrous individuals, but lust is not a crime as long as you don’t act upon it. Kyle Loughlin simply did everything wrong, and he’ll pay dearly for it no doubt.
