Why are most child sex offenders male?

I’ve seen people say that most rapists are male because they are stronger than women, but you don’t need to be strong to rape a child. So what’s really up?

  • What's really up is reporting bias, and sexism in the criminal justice system. If you go merely by those accused, child sex offenders are overwhelmingly FEMALE- every single year, more boys in the juvenile prison system of the US come forward to accuse (almost always female) prison guards of sexually assaulting them than accusers have come forward to accuse priests in the entire worldwide 2,000-year history of the Catholic Church. Which do you hear about more often? Our species doesn't take women seriously, even as sexual predators, and the cycle (more than 80% of adult male sexual abusers were abused themselves as children, and most rapists target the opposite sex) continues. And that's bearing in mind that accusing a man of raping you will likely get you an outpouring of sympathy, while accusing a woman will usually get you congratulated. Even if they're charged, women are rarely prosecuted, rarely convicted, and they get a sentencing "discount" six times larger (all else being equal) than they'd get for being white as opposed to black.

    But accusation is not guilt, no matter HOW popular that idea has become. In all likelihood, there IS more sexually deviant behavior on the part of men than of women. Why? Evolution. When you're needed to breed to keep the population up, and that greatly weakens your ability to defend yourself, natural selection will reward risk aversion- this is why all the dirty and dangerous jobs are overwhelmingly done by men. It's why the developments that come from 90-hour work weeks and exposure to dangerous chemicals are almost exclusively male; evolution sets them on a high-risk, high-reward course. That can easily extend to a disregard for laws and morals.

  • Generally, we believe that men are more prone to victimize because of their sexual nature... but the way things work it's hard to say for sure.

    We don't know if men are less likely to report being childhood victims of sexual violence, especially if it's from a female... We don't know if women are less likely to be caught or prosecuted.

    So it's important to keep stuff like that in mind...

  • Because males have ten times more testosterone than females.
    They consequently are always short of getting sex.

    • That means jack shit. That doesn’t mean it’s ok to be a fucking pedophile. What a horrible shit excuse.

    • Oh wow, after reading your comments. Its clear you’re a sex crazed retard, who has probably payed for sex multiple times in his life. You, are a disgusting disappointment.

  • Because most men are rapists 🙄

  • Because statisticly most criminals are male

  • Cause women don't get caught as much and when they do their prison sentences are non-existent.

    Men get raped a lot more than reported but society still thinks you can't rape men in general.

  • Two reasons.. One. Men are the ones that do it more statistically.. And two, The women that do it rarely if ever get reported, face consequences, or anything else. Even the courts believe that being sexually assaulted by a female is some how less severe than being sexually assaulted by a male.

  • Because rarely to older women desire after younger men and vice versa

  • But I think that look in the picture is a stereo type. Rapists come in many guides. Sadly some are female..

  • Because women don't find little boys sexually attractive. Men get especially mentally ill ones get sexually turned on by anything physically appealing is my best guess.

  • Same reason why most who gets away with it are female.

    • Update: just like most child sex often there are female. You also described them

    • *Offender

  • Because when women fuck kids we don't call them that, much less prosecute them.
    And even when prosecuted, people call it an affair.

    How do you feel about the fact that guys lose their virginity earlier than girls?

  • Men are generally dumber than women and are therefore more likely to get caught. That and our society believes female victims of rape more than male victims of rape.

    • What? You guys are more likely to get caught because you are doing it more.

    • Are we more likely to get caught because people are looking for male sexual predators more? Because male victims are less likely to complain?

  • Men rape more , women abuse and kill kids at a higher rate. It pans out.

    • Miss 808 why are you deleting comments 😂😂😂

  • Men are guiding by their loins and are prone to aggression and to not seek help for mental illness.
