Paedohysteria and the bachelor photographer

11 Feb

I’m a bachelor. Single, and unattached at present.

I like to take photographs when I am out and about.

Today those facts, taken together, were the cause of a paranoid mother becoming paedohysterical.

I was at an outdoor Canadian winter festival, at a local park, taking pictures.

One picture I took was of a group of about eight children, perhaps ranging between five and ten years old, playing on a piece of playground equipment that had been temporarily installed for the festival.

After shooting my shot, I walked away, headed elsewhere.

Suddenly, a woman ran up to me and demanded, “Did you just take a picture of my children?”

I answered, “Well, I just shot a group of children playing; if your children were among them, then I suppose I did indeed photograph them!”, smiling, trying to be friendly and polite and show my non-malevolent intentions, though I had already realized she was in the grip of paedohysteria, and my efforts were likely in vain.

And I was correct, for she then asked me, “Well, what are you going to do with it?”

I resisted the urge to sarcastically reply, “Why, I’m going to rush home right now and furiously masturbate over it!”, and instead I said, “I’m going to look at it, just as I look at all of my pictures, of all the different things and/or people that I shoot; like all the other people and scenes I’m shooting today.”

She appeared mollified by my response, said “Okay.”, and then left.

But a few minutes later, after I had walked away, irritated at the encounter, when I got into a line to get something to eat and drink, I saw her ahead of me in the line, and she noticed me. Then, afterwards, when I was sitting down with my food, I saw her at another picnic table, watching me. Still paranoid. Shortly after, she got up and left with her brood.

The experience almost ruined my afternoon.

I’m sure her own damned paranoia probably ruined hers, too.

Everyone loses with paedohysteria.

Parents, especially mothers: don’t be paedohysterical.

Do you really want to automatically assume bad faith on the part of every single man you see, especially one with a camera?

Suppose I was a pervert: do you think I would answer honestly when you ask me what I’m going to do with a picture of your children? And since you can’t actually stop someone from taking pictures in public places – yet – wouldn’t you rather not assume the worst, since you can’t actually stop someone from doing whatever they want with a shot they’ve taken, in the privacy of their home? And how would your children be hurt by such a thing, anyway, especially if they don’t know?

What a terrible thing, to go through life paranoid about things entirely beyond one’s control.

If you want to do something constructive, I have a suggestion: band together with other parents to fight attempts by authorities to allow adults who decide they are of the other ‘gender’ to use the public gym changerooms and showers of the opposite sex.

Now that’s something worth fighting for – and it’s winnable, too!

And we’d all win!

To end on a positive note, at one point, I wanted to get some shots of some animals that were there for kids to go on rides, and I noticed an area roped off where other photographers were shooting; I asked the teenage guy guarding the area if I could go in and shoot; he asked me if I had kids that were in there, I said no. He hesitated for a moment, but then said, “Technically, I’m not actually supposed to; go, hurry up,” and let me through.

Thanks, bro, for not being paedohysterical (unlike your bosses); for assuming I was acting in good faith! 🙂

If there are enough common-sense guys like him, we can turn things around and make the West sane again! 🙂

    It’s not just single guys that get this abuse. A six-year-old girl lent my toddler daughter a scooter, so I turned on my camera and handed it to her, and she filmed me pushing my daughter along the sidewalk while that girl’s teenage babysitter watched us. Her mom was furious when she got back.

    Or when we moved and the new neighbors called CPS with a variety of vague complaints. Seeing that my wife and I were not hauled away in handcuffs, they were happy to let their daughter play with mine.

    Like diversity, paedohysteria is another incentive to stay home and not participate in any sort of community activities. Who needs the hassle?

    You could have really sent her over the edge by saying “it’s not the kids I’m interested in. It’s their mothers. I was hoping you would come over and talk. You see, I find angry helicopter moms to be an incredible turn on. Wanna go for a drink somewhere? The kids’ll be fine by themselves for a while.”

      Ironic that you used “helicopter mom” in your comment — it was the first thing thing that ran through my mind.

    Maybe the camera, the pictures etc… had NOTHING to do with any of it.

    Maybe you looked like her ex boyfriend.

      I think that it was just the fact that he was a male (who was not accompanied by a woman), with a camera, and in an area where there were children present.
      The Leftists and their ‘captive’ media have made men (particularly those who are not of the ‘Upper 10% to 20%’) to be the ‘monsters’ of their potential wonderful Socialist Utopia, and it has been amply demonstrated many times that heterosexual White men have NO place in it.
      Some days, I’m certain that they would happily commit genocide against us if they could.

      Them pedophiles are so inconsiderate of others. 😉

    This is really an extension of this idea that people seem to have that it’s illegal to film or record people (for any reason) without their implicit consent. And it’s a problem with both sides of the political fence. But it can be seen as a barrier to big brotherism. So do keep that in mind.

      But there’s a big difference between the State setting up CCTV cameras all over the place in public areas, recording ordinary citizens’ every movements (tyrannical, Big Brother indeed), and ordinary folks with regular cameras just going around shooting anything they can see in public (legal in most jurisdictions, and not immoral, and too bad if people don’t like it).

      It’s funny to me that we live in a time where everyone carries around cameras with them everywhere on their cellphones, and are always taking selfies, but the moment someone else’s camera is turned on them, eek!

      Madness.

      Yes, it’s not a political matter, per se, though the particular case of single men with cameras being feared as pedophiles is part of feminazi anti-men paranoia, and usually a female, mother thing.

        It would be interesting to know how many of these neurotic helicopter moms are:

        1. hooked on a chemical cocktail of every psychotropic drug imaginable, and/or

        2. the same self-centered career women who dump their offspring into daycare centers every day without a second thought while they go climb the career ladder/try to shatter the glass ceiling, not knowing or caring into whose potentially slimy and perverted hands they put their children.

        I’m betting they’re often one and the same.

        Yeah, I don’t know. In this case, the woman in question looked like a respectable, average, middle / upper-middle class mother, and didn’t appear to be a junkie (though I know, appearances can be deceiving), so I’m inclined to think (2) is more likely, and (1) less likely, for her.

        I suspect that (2) can be the case without (1) also being the case, in many instances, just because I think that for many of those in category (1), they’re not with-it enough to be capable of, or caring enough to, try to micromanage their brood’s lives.

    This is part of what a ‘diverse’ and atomized society is like. Group trust is LOW.

    Secondly is the persistent anti-male attitudes that are not ingrained thinking that makes females think they are allowed to accuse any man if they are ‘uncomfortable’

    When you see this can you really wonder where witch trials came from in the 16th century??

    This negativity gets so enmeshed that it tends to poison a lot. Who doesn’t from time to time, if they’re sitting in a park to rest, or walking somewhere, enjoy watching the little kids running and playing for a minute.

    It puts a smile on your face. But even I’m aware as a man, in this perverse age, the default assumption is not the vicarious enjoyment of a child’s play, but of course —- a likely pedophile.

    Heck you don’t even have to ask– you can just assume it.

    I was in fact being goofy. As I get older, my humor gets lamer – just like the rest of me 🙂
