Stating the obvious:

This site is very popular. Anyone could could be reading and posting on here.

Threads which seem to encourage people to talk about sexual behaviour in preteens, probably aren't from a concerned parent and for many, many reasons, it's not wise to go into great details about your own exploits and make out that sexual activity in under 16's is no big deal.

Not a TAAT, as there's been loads of threads like this, but they seem to be increasing in number and frequency.

Can't say I've seen any.
Not that I'd post on s thread like that anyway.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Fri 25-Nov-16 19:52:38

Hmm. On the other hand, these issues are really worrying for genuine posters.

WellErrr Fri 25-Nov-16 19:54:39


I can't believe that the current one in the sex topic is still there, disgraceful.

Yanbu. My dodgy alarm is triggered every so often.

I don't believe a paedophile with internet access needs to come to mumsnet and fish for anecdotes.

Maybe83 Fri 25-Nov-16 19:56:37

I haven't noticed this.

Im on mumsnet most days and think your post is dramatic and unreasonable.

Yes anyone can be reading and posting on threads. This applies to loads of things people share here.

If it's the one I'm thinking of I didn't actually think pedophile just fucked up parent who will fuck up their dc.

But you're probably right OP as it's just too bloody weird.

Lewwat Fri 25-Nov-16 19:57:38

I know you've said this isn't a TAAT but...... That one earlier was a bit confused

YouHadMeAtCake Fri 25-Nov-16 19:57:54

YANBU and I think the same at times. Some posters are too happy to discuss their own DC, not having a clue who it is with. I think I know the threads you are thinking of.

JurassicFart Fri 25-Nov-16 19:59:00

So where should posters wanting that kind of advice go then? Just not bother to post? Some people don't have much support IRL, telling them to not post here because of pedophiles isn't helpful.

There is - sadly - a lot more exploitative material out there on the internet, I'm sure mumsnet isn't the go-to site for pedophiles.

hesterton Fri 25-Nov-16 19:59:12

I agree. We should be really cautious about responding to threads like that.

I was a volunteer listener for a helpline for parents many years ago and quite a few phone call turned out to be trolling men wanting to talk about such issues.

DigestiveMuncher Fri 25-Nov-16 19:59:39

I completely agree.
Mumsnet is turning into a frightening place in some ways.
I am a bit worried about one in particular tbh sad

QueenMe Fri 25-Nov-16 20:00:58

That thread has disappeared but I noticed it earlier. Did it not pan out well?

I think that was an odd thread but threads like that don't come up often. I'm sure a paedophile comes across much worse than what's written hear.

And ironically you've started a thread about paedophiles.

Trust nobody.

There is a school uniform fetishist who regularly turns up on here, also has a thing about older children in nappies. They have posted on all different parenting forums over the years.

SukeyTakeItOffAgain Fri 25-Nov-16 20:06:29

FFS. Why are some men so fucking weird? angry

Yamadori Fri 25-Nov-16 20:07:59

That thread has disappeared if it is the one I think it is... good. should have gone sooner.

nichito Fri 25-Nov-16 20:11:46

I have mixed feelings about this.

I absolutely see your point, but the fact is that small children do engage in behaviours such as masturbation and it is IMO exceedingly important that parents are aware of this, and entirely understandable that a parent might come online to seek advice and/or support. A paedophile is no more or less likely than an ordinary member of the public to be aware of this, and even were they entirely oblivious would still be a paedophile nevertheless.

milkshakeandmonstermunch Fri 25-Nov-16 20:12:04

Omg that never even entered my head! shock Just thought that mum was a massive weirdo. Urrgh sad

Tweasels Fri 25-Nov-16 20:13:30

That thread was ridiculous and another example of people trying to be that cool laid back parent and saying outrageous things.

I know this is anonymous etc but people do really need to remember that it's not a cosy night in with your's the Internet.

HateSummer Fri 25-Nov-16 20:13:54

Yanbu. Don't share personal stories on the net about your children. There used to be one poster on here who used to constantly make threads about how she was worried about her3 year old who apparently kept masturbating. Then you'd get an influx of people telling "her" it was fine and their own kids stories. just don't feed these threads With your own anecdotes. Keep your children's personal problems personal.

SweetChickadee Fri 25-Nov-16 20:15:19

I saw that one and backed out slowly... was hmm

ChadSexington Fri 25-Nov-16 20:15:58

That thread was totally dodgy, couldn't believe all the posters on it treating it as if it was normal. I don't have a great trolldar but that was just yuk.

nichito Fri 25-Nov-16 20:17:59

But its not a "problem" - children do masturbate, however unpalatable that may be. I was doing it before I was 3! Obviously when children are tiny it's just a comfort thing and has no relationship whatsoever to sex.

I didn't read the thread so it may well have been penned by some weirdo, and I agree that some people do overshare online, but it seems very odd and neurotic to assume any such thread on this topic must have been started by a paedo.
