I do question the damage done to children. I agree the sexual assault and rape are harmful. As are forced or coerced sexual interactions.
But consensual sex between a child and adult is not always harmful. Especially in societies that are sexually open and permissive. There are studies and anecdotal evidence that indicate even in our society adult/child sex can be beneficial.
P.S. Since I guess I might argue this a bit, so for clarity. I am a pro-contact pedophile. I have not ever and do not plan to be sexually involved with a child (nor have most pedophiles; whether anti's or pro's). I believe that in our society (given current attitudes) the child is likely to be harmed (though it is not definite that they would be) and I do not wish to harm a child (I also wish to avoid jail time, but that is actually my secondary concern).
But I also believe that in a sexually permissive society a child can engage in a sexual relationship with an adult and benefit from it

I guess so, but then we come to the important and tedious question: How does the child itself know that it's consenting? Hell, not even adults do always know what is consent. We need proper education on the topic, which has been lacking as of yet.

If Mary Jane Lick Sick can be permab& from Reddit, perhaps it's time their admins were made aware of this... thing.

Hey, go for it! Prison can't be that bad, eh?

Forced/coerced sexual interaction = rape

Children can't give informed consent, so there is no consensual sex between children and adults.

Sure, there might be anecdotes of a few child molestations that have been beneficial. That still leaves the thousands upon thousands of child molestations that are detrimental, harmful, sometimes even lethal.

There don't seem to be any actual studies that support your claims, though. And the only anecdotes are from child molesters & other paedophiles.

In other words, there is no actual evidence that contradicts the proven fact that adult/child sexual interactions are harmful all the time.
