What goes through the mind of a child abuser?

I constantly wonder what kind of person can abuse a child. Are people that abuse children sick in the head? Many abusers use the excuse that they too were abused and they think that is a reason to abuse someone else. A child born with autism experiences meltdowns. We have no control over them. Even when we know that we will be hurt by an adult after a meltdown, we still cannot control the meltdown. Someone who is being abused cannot go to the police because no one will believe them or their only way to survive comes from the abuser. So many children are being abused in the world and our government just allows it to happen. The same type of person that can abuse a child is the type that will also abuse an animal. I chose not to hurt anyone after being abused by my parents and others. I wanted to prove that just because you were abused as a child, it does not give you the excuse to abuse others.

I imagine porn addiction may lead a lot of people to eventually abuse others. It's a common theme for people who watch porn too much to gradually become desensitized to genres and start watching more and more disturbing material. If someone then starts watching CP for prolonged periods, they may eventually move onto abusing children.

A lot of people arrested for abuse are found to have images or videos on their computers of CP. I think it might be due to porn addiction.

Of course, as you said - some might have been abused in the past. But that might just be an excuse used by some criminals in court. Whilst abuse might turn someone into an abuser, it could just as easily make them detest their past abuse and become the polar opposite to the people who had victimized them as children.
