Do I want to follow the link to that alleged study?

The only way you could arrive at that conclusion would be if you 1. cheated or 2. defined "empathy" as "willingness to let children eat sweets all day long" ... actually, the second one IS cheating, so ... yeah, just cheating.

(Or of course, this person just lies about what the study says. TRAs do that all the time, so ...)

Child molesters have always tried to portray themselves as friends of children, citing all kinds of things they want to do for children that would sound appealing to innocent children and very stupid adults (the same rights adults have! Isn't that cool?) but which are not good for children (... especially the "right" to "consent" to sex with adults...)
