Story Research: How would you feel to be thought a pervert?

So, after it stopped being trendy to adopt a war orphan, and they became the social pariahs that they are now, there was a marked increase in adoptions that were thinly-veiled trafficking cases.

This has gotten yo the point where it’s lowkey expected that if you adopt one of these kids, there’s a decent change you’re doing it because you’re a pedo looking to satisfy an urge.

I’m just trying to figure out how that would utterly fuck with the mind of someone (like Roane) adopting one of these kids because they want to be a parent/want to do their part.

When, as soon as anyone knows the situation, it kind of makes people look twice at him. Like, a co-worker is going to flat-out ask “do I need to worry about you around my kids?”.

Thoughts? Input?

    It would depend on the person. Some folks would probably be surprised/aghast at first (“Do you not know me at all?!”) but I suspect resignation would fast win.

      That’s what I’m imagining too. Like, you would get tired of arguing it, even if it made you sick to the heart to think that people around you could so easily believe you were – in this case – a child molester.

    So first of it would be kinda funny if people thought me a pervert, I am rather passionate about things and people would at this point probably be pretty damn tired of hearing on my rants on how inhumane the whole system is and how we throw away our humanity for the sake of restoring the illusion of betterment.

    On the other hand i would probably quickly redraw into myself if I did not convince people that it weren’t true (probably through more rants) spending my time home when I am not working and focusing my effort on the work and less on my coworkers.

    It would depend entirely on what kind of pervert. I mean a large number of people know I’m kinky, bi and polyamorous. But then I move in social circles were a bit or perversion is pretty normal.

      Speaking as a bi girl myself, I don’t see any of that as perverted. 🙂

      I was trying to be a little gentle with the post title, so that it didn’t appear in people’s inboxes as “how you would feel if people thought you were a pedo?” – aside from not wanting to trip some kind of alert and get put on a list, I also wanted to try and avoid triggering people.

    I’m kinda used to it. My brother was born when I was 15, and my mom was 38. No dude in the picture (long story) and so for a LOOONG time, people assumed the kid was mine and that my mom was a cradle robber. Which got me plenty of stares and treatment as well.

    I’m trans… men literally walk into women’s changing rooms to check under skirts for perverts like me.
