The viewing of indecent images of children is so prevalent that people probably know someone within their circle who does it, Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner said today.
Human society tends to be organised in over lapping groups of the 200 known to any one specific person. Thus if everyone knows one then incidence will be around that one in two hundred – 0.5%.
Which does seem extraordinarily high, about the same as the claimed incidence of trans, isn’t it?
If we include hebephiles, ephebephiles etc, then perhaps but actual paedophiles?
