OK, I don't think I properly spelled this out before, so here goes: you are not a prick. At least, most of you would claim not to be. So -- and here's the subtle bit -- don't act like one.
The people at Kiwiblog currently vilifying "pondscum" paedophiles and clamouring for a bullet to the head for abusive parents are wrong to do so. Not because the objects of their vitriol don't "deserve" it -- not because of any facts about them -- but because that's not what civilised adults do. Any attempt to justify such behaviour on the grounds of "they're asking for it/they deserve it/an older boy made me do it" is at best childish and at worst quite disturbingly psychopathic, going be some of the comments in the linked posts.
I'll say again: The way you act towards people has nothing to do with them and everything to do with you and how you choose to act. So you don't abuse murderers and serial rapists in jail because abusing people in your care is what the fuckers do. You don't forcibly sterilise abusive parents because forced sterilisation is, quite famously, what the fuckers do. And you pay up when you're found guilty of not treating convicted criminals like you're supposed to because to do otherwise is what the fuckers do. No excuses.
Now, you're probably be thinking "easy to say, hippy -- you'd feel different if it was your child being abused/your mother being murdered in her bed/your puppy being kicked." And I might. But I'd be wrong.
