Back when I hung out with science fiction fans there was a pedophile among the group, Roger Lovin, who wrote The Complete Motorcycle Nomad. A lot of people admired him because he was a published author, but I could tell he was a con man. He was caught with a lot of kiddie porn, some of it starring himself. He liked to have sex with the children of his girlfriends.

The weird thing was -- well, there was two weird things. 1) I knew he liked to joke about stuff like that but I didn't take him seriously until he was arrested; 2) after he was arrested it seemed to me that he was still admired (not by me.)

Tarring all science fiction fans with the pedophile brush is silly, but I do find it very weird that so many pedophiles are science fiction fans.

I would have expected something different, NASCAR, maybe. Or paramilitary.

Edit: reading commentary on that blog, I came across one that makes sense. They catch pedos using the computer. Well, people who use computers tend to be geeks, and geeks tend to like science fiction.

So it's a coincidence.

This means they don't catch the pedos who don't use the computer.

Well, one more comment -- I don't think being attracted to 15 year old girls is warped, although it's illegal. The ones I want to kill are the ones who are attracted to five year olds. And we won't even talk about the ones who are attracted to younger kids. Death is too good for them.

Sorry for talking about horrible things. I know a lawyer who used to prosecute these guys, and she had to quit.
