Note “child” is sometimes wrongly used to talk about post-puberian (though 
minors) humans (and I was one not so long ago, and I can say it is quite 
enerving to me to use me as political lever), and “pornography” about 
personal, private (not published) photos, or even fictional drawings.

For me putting people in prison for owning *drawings* or having photos of 
their *same-age* lovers is wrong and ought to be criticized.

And that’s a perfectly valid example of why doing so (defending blablabla)

And so few people have the courage doing this (as pedophilia is so widely used 
as strawman to restrict people’s freedom and sustain first-forms of censorship 
and repression (like Australia did)) that it is not acceptable either to 
deprieve society from one temerary individual on the ground of the fact he’s a
