I feel like 'softening' the taboo of pedophilia at the minimum has already started. I know I've seen a growing sentiment that pedophiles (especially ones who do not actually act on their urges) should be treated with sympathy because they "can't help who they are attracted to."

It absolutely has and I get chewed out by libfem friends for pointing it out. They’re not even quiet about it really.

It really does seem like everything, including the most morally reprehensible shit in western society, is now "valid" and up for reinstatement. It's absolutely wild.
