>>54089>I think a lot of us are concerned about the 13 year old girls getting into this
I agree. Children should be kept out of bdsm and fetishes.
I think it can be a little scary to feel like you're alone because you're scared or ashamed as a teen, so I think research is okay (to figure out what you like, what you don't) as a teen is okay. But you shouldn't be apart of adult themed communities.>To me these communities seem to like they may end up cloistering such relationships to keep their fetish from being seen in a bad light by the general public.
The fetish and age-play itself isn't bad. It's the bad guys (that can occur in all communities) using it to groom children. But it will never be not bad. The implications of the name itself that someone who doesn't know what it entails is going to give it a bad rep.>little too vocal and public with their fetishes in an attempt to normalize them.
I'm not here to normalize or convince anyone, but to try to educate, inform, answer questions, and keep kids protected. I still feel like the pictures of minor posted here need to be removed. Especially because now it links them to an adult bdsm fetish.>opens the floodgates for a lot of unsavory perverts
I agree, but dangerous people are everywhere, too.>fetishists have no shame is posting really specific details of what they are doing all over tumblr.
We can't censor the internet, unfortunately. This is just one of those, "you don't want to see it, don't look," moments. I still think these things need adult content warnings, but kids will always find a way, like lying about their age or getting around a block.>it also makes those perverts feel more normalized.
I don't think so, I think these people know they are doing something bad but they use the guise of a fetish to get what they want.
